So I've watched the seven episodes of Yuri On Ice that are available on Crunchyroll (Q: Are you considering the free trial of premium so you can watch the next episode RIGHT NOW? A: Yes but also it is 1:00 and I am supposed to sleep occasionally.), and oh my god I love it so much? Like, I thought it was going to be entertaining trash and, y'know, queerbait on skates, and it IS! But also I feel like it just pushed me over and stole my wallet and I don't know how to handle this AT ALL.

YURI IS AN ANXIOUS SNOWFLAKE WHO HAS SOMEHOW ENDED UP WITH THE PERSON HE ADMIRES MOST IN THE ENTIRE WORLD AND AS AN ANXIOUS SNOWFLAKE WHO HAS SOMEHOW ENDED UP FRIENDS WITH A BUNCH OF PEOPLE WHO A) I GENUINELY AND EARNESTLY ADMIRED AS CREATORS BEFORE I WAS FRIENDS WITH THEM, B) APPEAR TO LIKE ME TOO I KNOW THIS FEELING AND I AM SO INVESTED IN HIM DOING WELL.

... He just wants Victor to believe in him more than he believes in himself and I am so fucked.

I will probably end up talking about this more, but I needed to vent to clear my head so I could write and sleep without shaking Lex and going "PLEASE LET ME YELL ABOUT QUEERBAIT ON SKATES AT YOU."

(Apparently the next episode has a Canadian skater based off this douchebro fuckboy and I am so salty about how much I am intrigued by this. PS Chris please stop talking about how much you're going to come from your own routine that's just WEIRD.)

I'm so happy you're enjoying it!!!

I know NOTHING about figure skating, so I was SO AMUSED and bewildered by the Canadian dude being a douchebro. lolllllll

And, like, I love how you can hardly tell how incredibly fucking good Yuri is at skating because he has such a hard time believing in himself, and how much he loves this thing but ruins it for himself at the same time because it's so important to him? And how much he has to pretend to be someone else to do his routines BUT VICTOR IS SO DISTRACTING YURI CAN ACTUALLY FORGET TO PRETEND BECAUSE HE IS SO FOCUSED ON IMPRESSING VICTOR INSTEAD OF ON HIS OWN PAINFUL SELF-CONSCIOUSNESS?????

it's like when you're writing fic for someone else and sometimes you can get in that zone where you're more focused on how much that person will enjoy it than on your own horrible criticism brain
