yuto&yuri

Victor and Yuuri, acting like a married couple, where one feeds the other. Yuuri’s trying so hard not to blush, but his husband is being adorably embarrassing, and he can’t say no to that smile, so of course he goes along with it.

Their angry son, already used to it, is like: “I DON’T EVEN CARE ANYMORE. THEY’VE ACTED LIKE THIS SINCE I CAN REMEMBER, THERE’S NO STOPPING THEM NOW.”

While they go out to eat, wearing matching cat hoddies, THIS FAMILY…

this is just a tiny little detail but I really love how they made Viktor tell Yuuri his wants and desires during the course of the show because it shows a lot of character (and really displays the utmost care his VA put into Viktor’s voice)

it’s SO CASUAL 

He says this as if it’s the easiest thing in the world, no big deal, almost a throwaway comment, but knowing how Viktor feels about Yuuri it’s OBVIOUS that this carries a lot more meaning than he lets on

it’s a very natural thing to do because you want to guard the depth of your emotions and fear rejection so you present what you actually want in a way that makes it seem not that important to you, to shield yourself from the eventual rejection and embarrassment that might follow in its wake

he does this again in episode 7

he says this WAY TOO CASUALLY, as if it’s just a random solution that popped into his head (and this is also a sign of how Viktor deals with issues through actions as opposed to words), but once again he just reveals his emotions in a way that puts him out of harm’s way if he’s rejected. VIKTOR’S LIKE “Yuuri you’re crying??? Ah okay I can kiss it better if you want no big deal just doing my job as coach hahaah right Yuuri” 

like

Viktor

your gay is showing

and the fact that he actually kisses Yuuri in the end of the episode just shows that he was entirely serious the whole time on a much deeper level than he lets on (it makes me both laugh and cry that he probably waited for this moment for MONTHS……the poor man, he’s so patient)

episode 9, same thing again

presented in a very lighthearted tone this time. During the first times he talks as if it’s of little importance to him, but now his words are more sincere but with this tone instead. Once again, no grand words, no outpouring emotions, just Viktor casually expressing the depth of what he feels for Yuuri and how he desires for their relationship to progress. At this point he has his boyfriend and he has his kisses, so now he just moves on to the next stage because well, Viktor Nikiforov is madly in love with Yuuri and wants the whole world to know 

HE DOES THIS SO MANY TIMES

I’m just……so in love with the thought of Viktor, while brave enough to express his wishes, still not being able to do this in a way that would perhaps put him in an awkward spot. He’s obviously very pushy right at the beginning and as we know he cries himself to sleep in episode 2 after Yuuri rejects him 

He always appears very confident and overall sure of himself so these things are so interesting to me because, while subtle, it reveals his insecurities and how much he longs for Yuuri but fears being turned down at the same time. Viktor is, until Yuuri comes into his life, ultimately a very lonely character and it makes sense that he would grasp for Yuuri and at the same time feel uncomfortable revealing just HOW MUCH he wants these things.

These subtle choices in dialogue and expressions and voice acting reveals so much to us and I love this kind of storytelling. 

VIKTOR IS SUCH A FASCINATING CHARACTER!! I love him I’m so glad he found love and happiness and a future for himself with Yuuri by his side

I have just realized that there are people out there who haven’t yet had the pleasure of hearing the beautiful singing voice of Toyonaga Toshiyuki aka Yuuri Katsuki’s Japanese voice actor, and decided to amend this.

I was actually wondering which song sung by him to choose for this showcase since more often than not he sings in a lower voice than Yuuri’s, but then I found this - “Valentine Season” - from his recent mini album C’LR’OWN and thought that this was just the thing I was looking for.

If you want to hear more of his singing, you can find his solo album on Spotify.

Oh, and fun fact - he can play guitar, drums (he has literally ranked 7th nationally in the drummania rankings which is insane and awesome) and writes and composes songs.

In case you needed inspiration for that “singer/musician!Yuuri AU” here it is. ;D
