"Otabek and Yuri literally had less than five minutes of screen time. Why Otayuri? Where?" It's not because you don't want to see a romantic relationship, that I have to stop seeing the posibility too. In 5 minutes, Beka showed that he saw Yuri as he really was. In 5 minutes we have Beka who has admired Yura for years. And then we see them smiling happily. Really smile. Yeah, they can be friends, I see more than that. When? Idk, when their relationship will build and evolve. It's just wonderful!
It’s funny because so many ant/s ship Sara and Mila and those two had even less screentime and interactions than Otabek and Yuri did. And I don’t seen that ant/ calling out Sara/Mila shippers or any of the other “rarepair” ships.
Shipping has nothing to do with canon screentime. If people want to ship two characters for whatever reasons, they’re allowed to. idk why some act like people can only ship characters if they have a certain screentime/interaction requirement…
And why Otayuri? Where?
Right here, for me and many other shippers.
These “they’re just friends!!” ant/s need to realize… no one is stopping them from seeing OY as only just friends. Their friendship is wonderful. If you only ship them as a brotp, that’s great, good for you! But if other people ship them romantically, that’s fine too.
