wow sorry this looks like actual trash

Yes, Yuri on Ice is actually as gay as you think.

I need to say something to the skeptics out there, the ones who are annoyed with YoI, the ones who believe it’s yaoi trash.

Yuri on Ice is quite literally revolutionary so far. It is a big deal. We’re not screaming over some spineless fanservice or some homoerotic subtext. You’ve probably seen the screenshots and gifs out of context and thought, ‘wow, that looks pretty gay.’

No, you do not understand. It is gay

This is an anime that is not labeled as yaoi- meaning, it is not basic, heteronormative fanservice intended for women with problematic themes. It is not shounen-ai, where it simply teases the watcher for hints of homosexuality but never actually goes through with any of it.

Of course, there is fanservice- butt shots, body shots, what have you- that is skillfully placed in with the rest of the story.

But so far, this show is not queerbaiting.

So far, only three episodes in, Yuri on Ice has been smashing anime stereotypes one after another. 

This is unlike we’ve seen in Sports anime. This is almost comparable to No. 6; an anime with a solid, well-done plot that so happens to have a gay romance rather than a straight one. However, Yuri on Ice isn’t just that. There is no doubt this show is one about sexual awakening. That much was painfully clear throughout episode 3. 

Not only is it unique that this show is about sexual awakening, but it is between two men. It is very real, very blatant, and not made fun of. It is not a joke. It is not a facade to draw the fangirls in. This is real. 

The amount of proof for this is outstanding. The ending song is a great example, from the lyrics to the pictures shown.

‘You’re so beautiful tonight
I was simply entranced
Even the hourglass was
C’mon and take my breath away’ 

And, as pointed out in previous posts, the act of combing one’s hair is an intimate act between lovers in Japan. That was focused on in the ending sequence of instagram posts.

In episode 3 alone, there was the significant dialogue of Yuri as he skated about how he found his eros in embracing his femininity. That was not made fun of in any way- it was accepted as the right thing, and Yuri felt more comfortable being ‘the woman seducing the playboy,’ the playboy being Victor. If you had any doubt about who the playboy was, Victor’s whistle was a skillful and clever way to give that away all too obviously.

If you haven’t watched Yuri on Ice yet because you believe it’s all fanservice, because you think it is like Free, or Hibike! Euphonium- you are wrong. Both of those shows, while absolutely beautiful and I personally enjoy them both, are constantly skirting around homosexuality. They do everything to imply romantic attraction, but do not actually take the next step. They tease, but don’t give. And this show is not like Haikyuu or any other sports anime, where you can easily see the bonds in the show as platonic or romantic (depending on how you want to think about it).

No, this show is gay, whether you like it or not. You can deny many anime of being gay, as being something only the fangirls are seeing for their shipping desires, but you cannot deny this one. 

This is representation, and by god, I hope this show continues to do what it’s doing. If nothing comes of Victor and Yuri’s relationship, this show will still make history as the biggest queerbaiting flop ever seen. And, if it continues to do as amazingly as it is, by god will it be hard to beat.

Imagine this. Derek. The grumpiest mermaid to ever grump the 7 seas. His tail is the colour of his magically hazel eyes, and he has these starfish and kelp thingies as jewelry around his arms and neck. And stiles the happiest teen to ever swim bc wow LOOK! Thats how the sea looks like?! Actual sea, not a photo! I always dreamed of thiiiiis-ohmygod its cold wow! Water!!! And mermaid mates and stiles maybe gets caught under water? And then kissing under water to help stiles breathe and save him!!

I’m sorry. I just had to. Bc literally all mermaid aus is stiles being a mermaid. But. Omg. I just. Derek would be SO fricking adorable being all grumpy with his tail, and flopping it irritated around and splashing, arms crossed, and looking so grumpy. Yeeessss…

@benaya-trash OLGA OLGA OLGA, LOOK AT THIS. I need to see this *coughs* so much *coughs*. 

I adore mer!Stiles (and truthfully I probably prefer him to mer!Derek for reasons I don’t actually know myself) but gosh, I love mer!Derek too. 

Can you imagine though, Derek being that mer person. The one who could so easily lure anyone to their deaths, just by looking a them, but he is a good soul, the purest soul; and yeah, maybe he grumps about it but he totally finds himself lurking by the nearest beach in case kids decide to ignore their parents and swim out a little too far to sea. Derek can’t count the number of kids he’s saved from drowning. 

And Derek…humans have always intrigued him but none as much as Stiles Stilinski does. Stiles who is beautiful and smart and funny and who is such a beautiful swimmer…well, until he gets distracted by something and starts drowning that is (psssst, he totally keeps getting distracted by Derek’s tail). Derek does his utmost best to continue to appear annoyed every time Stiles starts drowning around him - he is kind of convinced Stiles does it on purpose just to get his attention - but he can’t help be drawn in by him every time, wanting to know more about him, to hold his freaking hand, goddammit.  

Stiles who brings Derek books and reads to him about the mermaids from Homer’s The Odyssey, making Derek laugh. Stiles who brings Derek milk shakes, laughing in delight when Derek spits them out because ugh, they are horrible. Stiles whose face is covered in the most beautiful freckles Derek has ever seen; he’s never seen so many freckles on one person before, not like these, and he finds himself longing to touch them, to trace them with his fingers.

Derek who shows Stiles his favourite caves, telling him stories of the sea of his people. Derek who frowns, confused, at the way Stiles looks at him; most people look at him with awe, like they are looking at a painting; Stiles looks at him, making Derek feel almost nervous and self concious for the very first time in his life. Derek who “begrudgingly” holds Stiles’ surf board for him a he tries to learn to ride the waves, always panicking a little when Stiles falls off, scared he’s hurt (not that he will ever let on how panicked he gets, even if Stiles probably already knows by the way Derek dives after him under the water every time).

Basically, I need grumpy mer!Derek who is actually not that grumpy at all, who just pretends to be, but melts around kids and, of course, one Stiles Stilinski.
