DUUUDE, you updated Falling!!!!! It didn't even take 40 years to read because I freaking devoured it and now I know why it took so long. Beautifully done. The way you incorporated the letters (the final variation-- oh, Victor...) was just perfect, and the conversation with Yuuri ("Surely you must know...") was so raw and so beautiful that I almost cried because they're so tender it hurts. The way you wrote Victor begging Yuuri to trust him was so genuine. Looking forward to the final part!
Ahh, thank you!! That last scene made me so happy when I wrote it.
In Episode 7, I’ve always thought Victor’s line “Should I just kiss you or something?” implied that there was earlier conversation between them on this subject. Or at least some strong hints.
Because Yuuri didn’t seem that surprised when Victor said it. He was more angry. Like, “Not now. We’re fighting, and I’m mad at you.”
So it’s always been my head-canon that something might have happened between them earlier than Episode 7. A conversation. An almost kiss. And maybe Yuuri turned Victor down, but there was a “maybe not now but later” response given.
So I see the conversation in Episode 7 as Victor going, “Okay, does now work?” and Yuuri’s like, “Um, how about no?”
Anyway. That’s why I wrote that pre-Episode 7 scene in Falling. That’s my pre-relationship head-canon.
