With only 21 hours to go until the finale hits Crunchyroll, I want you to really think about something.
I want you to look at this boy. Really look.

Imagine this: he’s freshly showered, still wet enough to drip, emotionally open, lightly teasing Yuri about Minako and Celestino getting very likely incredibly shitfaced drunk that night. He’s in their shared room, undressed except for a fluffy robe, sitting as far as possible from the door. Yuri is between him and the world. His ring is on his finger, because obviously it is. You don’t take off wedding rings to shower.
Imagine Yuri breaking up with him.
He literally has nowhere to run, no way to make a dignified retreat. It’s easily the worst position Yuri could possibly put him in for a conversation about ending anything that Victor wouldn’t want to end.

可我会像奥德休斯一样 But I will advance like Odysseus 朝着心中的方向 Towards my heart’s direction 哪怕众神会在彼岸阻挡 Even if the Gods may stop me at the other shore 当我需要独自站在 远方的沙场 When I need to stand alone on the faraway battlefield 武器就是我紧握的梦想 My dreams become my weapon 而我受过的伤 While the wounds I carry 都是我的勋章 Become my medals
he skates his heart out. for himself, for
his family, for his country, for the new friendship that is already so dear to
he skates. his programme is stronger than his last one
was this time a year ago. he didn’t qualify for the final last year, but he medaled
at worlds, so he knows he can only evolve from here on out.
he skates. he thinks of his family, of their continuous
support over the years, of the effort they had to put in for his dreams to be
realized. and he is grateful.
he skates. he thinks of his country, of all the people
that have placed their faith in him, of that sense of pride swelling in his

he skates. he thinks of green eyes burning with determination
so fierce it took (it takes, it still takes) his breath away. he thinks of a
budding friendship that has been years in the making, the potential exhilarating
rivalry that can grow and challenge him more thrilling him more than anything.
he skates and he skates and he skates.
and he knows that, no matter the results (though,
obviously, he wants to medal, he wants to win), this is only the beginning.
