How do you delete a text on someone else’s phone.

Open their phone and delete the text.

He’s at the airport.

And he has his read receipts on.

i think ciao ciao is worried about you

He doesn’t need to be.

And he can tell me himself.

He’s literally standing right next to me.

He just told me I shouldn’t look at social media so much.

im a bad influence haha

He just gave me a lecture about how I’m an adult and I can make my own choices.

but don’t psych yourself out reading the #receipts

Yeah

CIAO CIAO

what a good bro

at the risk of being blocked and reported

Please don’t.

ok

but that leaves us with literally one topic

besides homework but blehh

Do you want his number?

I HAVEN’T EARNED IT

ITS YOUR GLASS SLIPPER YOU GOTTA VISIT EVERY HOTEL IN THE KINGDOM TO FIND ITS OWNER

PRINCE YUURI

Probably reading too much into this.

It could have been anyone.

I’m not sure why anyone would want my number in the first place.

I’m surprised they didn’t just throw it away.

[impossible.mp4]

i’ve found next years exhibition music for you

listen to your fairy godmother

no haha this ones better

[callmemaybe.mp4]

whatever you think he should have done

he didn’t throw it away

and he did text you

I don’t know if it’s a boy.

drunk yuuri knows whats up

it's a boy trust me

I don’t know.

I mean.

Why would he keep my number??

I don’t even remember if he asked or I just threw my number at him.

oh yuuri

I’m really not that impressive.

Like why talk to me at all??

I’m really just a nobody.

If it's a sponsor why talk to the guy who lost?

you’re not a nobody

Then why did I mess up so badly?

you’re allowed to have bad days

if anything happened to my furbabies i wouldn't even skate tbh

id be crying too hard to move

[rosaarlo.jpg]

you were brave for even putting your skates on

youre my hero bro

Bro.

BRO YOU CALLED ME BRO BRO

I regret it already.

And you’re my hero.

Thank you for trying to cheer me up.

awwwwwww

finally i score higher than victor in something

yuuri?

He didn’t even recognize me. I think he thought I was just some fan.

WHAT

dark internet show me the forbidden place where i can hire a scary hulk of a dude to rough a guy up

when??

Just after the skate.

I’m not even in the same league.

ummmm not to be That Guy but you placed really well in your qualifiers

if he didn’t recognize you it’s not your fault

if he doesn’t pay attention to the competition then he has a weakness!

we can beat him

together!

WITH OUR COMBINED STRENGTH WE CAN END HIS REIGN

That’s impossible.

SEARCH YOUR FEELINGS

YOU KNOW IT TO BE TRUE

We can’t beat him if we switch to pair skates.

slksfhjfdakfdg

smooth bro now go use some of that on your cinderella man

He hasn’t texted in a while.

he might just be getting breakfast.

or he’s asleep

because its still stupid early there

Not really it’s like 10.

You are probably on the plane by now.

Safe trip!

Sorry. Checked luggage.

There might be a delay.

Good old Aeroflot!

Would you like more pictures to pass the time?

Please don’t harass any birds on my account.

So sarcastic!

But your wish is my command.

Have you had breakfast?

Or are you still recovering?

I’m not really hungry.

Do you have anything fun planned for when you get home?

I have exams as soon as I land.

And I have a lit review.

And then nationals.

A lit review?

I have to present some parts of my research before I get permission to finish my thesis project.

I managed to finish writing it before the competition but there wasn’t time to schedule the meeting.

Wow!

You are doing a thesis!

You are in university!

That is incredible!

What are you studying?

English right now.

I’ll be done with my classes after these exams.

I just have student teaching after this.

And to present my thesis.

He must be a genius.

How hard must he work?

Yura are you planning to go to college?

idk maybe when I retire?

tbh its not that important

you didn’t go

Yura what if he’s too smart for me??

What if he thinks I’m an idiot???

Against a bronze and a silver in your qualifiers just this year

Three time Japanese National Champion?

Not even to speak of your junior career?

There is not another Katsuki Yuuri I am thinking of?

No there is not, of course not.

And to do all that while you were at university!

I needed a student visa…

No you will not convince me.

You are amazing and that is my final answer.

are you still texting cinderella boy

Yeah

!!!!!!!!!

ciao ciao just texted me and told me to go to sleep or study lol

tell him ur not texting me

I will.

so what is cinderella boy saying

He sent me a picture of seagulls trying to steal his breakfast.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

CAN WE KEEP HIM

He’s just.

I don’t know.

so you don’t know who he is

obviously you had fun though

or he did

is he being too pushy???

No…..

that’s not a 100% no

give me his number and ill tell him to back off

It’s not that.

It’s just

It’s so strange.

I still don’t understand why he’s talking to me.

And I know what you’re going to say.

But you’re my friend and you’re biased.

I don’t know what someone could possibly see in me if all they knew was how I just performed.

yuuri

i know everyone is pushing more and more jumps to try to compete with king vikki

but you gotta know like

no one can know better than you that that’s not all there is to figureskating

im sure hes not the only person to see the creative and talented core of your program no matter what happened

hes just the only one who got ur number ಠ‿ಠ

I wish I could remember giving it to him though.

I really don’t remember talking to anyone.

yeah I thought it was pretty wild of ciao ciao to make you go but hey

if it worked for brandy itll work for you

I have no idea what that means.

IMPOSSIBLE

guess we gotta rewatch cinderella

you gotta get more genre savvy now that your life is a fairy tale and ur prince charming and you swept some lovely dreamboat off his feet

I have no idea what he looks like!

drunk yuuri knows whats up!

i would never trust drunk yuuri with my life but i would always trust him with

idk

beer goggles never really got you chasing after anyone

got people chasing after you though •̀.̫•́✧

so if you gave him your number idk

did you give him your number

How else could he have gotten it? I didn’t have my phone on me.

probably for the best lol

so if you aren’t sure about him

you do know you don't have to keep talking to him

just because i think its hilarious doesn't trump your comfort

I don't know

I mean

I can walk away at any time

I can block him or whatever

He’s just some guy so I don’t have to worry about what he thinks of me

i still have so many questions

haven’t seen anything on instagram so it cant have been too bad

Maybe we just talked??

maybe

English doesn't look real anymore.

????

I don't think I got enough sleep last night.

I’ve read this book like 30 times and right now I can’t make my brain understand it.

Even Russian is tricky when I have no sleep.

English is a nightmare language you are brave to study it in university.

What is your thesis about?

Ehhhhhhh

How literature and language create and

What’s the word

How literature creates and perpetuates the social construction of gender and why people pretend it doesn't

Because if gender is permanent and immutable then you can use it to preserve all sorts of invasive social mores

And how enlightenment thinkers were basically the original fuckboys

That is incredible!

                                                                                                   I’m using regency England and early American lit as the main case study, and comparing it to how English speaking countries construct gender before and since.

I don't know how you do it.

That is incredible.

Not really

I just want an excuse to have Jane Austen call people fuckboys

Let Jane say fuck

Are you allowed to curse so much in your papers?

If you’re artistic about it.

If I started spelling out bad words in my programs do you think the judges would notice?

Please don’t do that.

I will have to be sure Chris has not already done it.

But I want everything I own to say ‘let Jane say fuck’ from now on

Please don’t I’m actually laughing right now I think my coach is worried.

You have a good laugh I will not stop.

I will teach the ravens to say it in the tower of London.

I will buy a parrot and keep it on my shoulder and it will only know how to say that.

She is Pride and Prejudice and Mr Darcy and all that?

I am not very familiar.

She’s a good one.

I can’t form a coherent thought about her beyond that right now.

You should sleep.

I’ll try.

Thank you for talking to me.

It is truly my pleasure.

My flight was not very long, thankfully.

No leg room to speak of.

That’s never fun.

No

There were so many of us coach just stuck us all in economy and told us it would build character.

There is already so much character on this team I am not sure that we need or could survive more.

What day is your review?

Thursday.

I wanted to make sure I had time in case there was a delay.

Detroit almost always has delays.

Yes I was stuck there once overnight

But it was on the way home it was not so time sensitive.

Yeah

They don’t like rescheduling lit reviews.

I just wanted to be sure.

But if you are stuck on a plane

How can you be at your review?

They’re just really particular.

It works out better this way anyways.

How many exams do you have?

Only three.

Three more than I have ever had!

You never went to college?

No, skating took up too much time.

Maybe when I retire, but what would I study?

I did not like school very much either.

I was a temperamental child

I did not have many friends

Class clown I think?

I think you grew out of it.

I do not know many who would agree with you

Skating is serious, everything else?

Not so much.

What are your exams for?

Post-postmodern Literature

Irish Revolutionary Literature

Science vs Aesthetic in Science Fiction

Though that's just for fun and it's a presentation, not an exam.

You take college classes for fun!

That is amazing.

You’re easily impressed.

No I don’t think so.

I think most of your classmates do not also skate competitively.

And I think most of your competitors are not taking classes.

My roommate is.

Was he at the grand prix?

No.

But he will be next year.

He’s really good.

[video message sent]

He has flair.

Good presence.

He’s always a lot of fun to watch.

He really puts everything into it.

You say this as if you do not do the same thing.

You would not need music, the way you skate.

The music accompanies you, you make it yours.

Hey all here’s this week’s schedule. Lot of travel coming up so I won’t be around much for the rest of the month. I’d like for everyone to keep up their conditioning when they go home for break, and go ahead and skate with your families if you want, but please don’t do anything reckless while unsupervised. With various national championships coming and then four continents we don’t need any injuries.

Good luck with exams, happy holidays, and happy new year!

Ah my coach has me in conditioning for today.

I would rather be in the rink….

???

You just had a competition. You need to rest a little bit.

National championships are coming up soon though.

I have to practice.

How soon?

The 24th?

Really?!

You are telling me

That you competed, got on a plane, flew home, will now take exams, get on another plane, and fly to Japan to compete again??

Russia has theirs at the same time

But we do not have exams in between!

Its pretty much like this every year.

I repeat: Really?!

I mean I’ve never been to the gpx final before.

                     But I’ve been assigned to the NHK trophy and I always have

exams and the National Championship is always late December.

Every moment you surprise me.

Every day many times.

How do you do it?

It’s really not that big of a deal.

I study and I skate.

I’m really not that interesting.

You still have not acknowledged banquet boy’s genius

I acknowledge it always you cad

Beyond his skills as a dancer

As if that wasn’t the first thing you noticed

But there is so much more now!

He is in university.

Yes you told me this.

He has just come home from one competition

And now he will take exams!

And then he will go to Japan for their national championship!

That would run anyone ragged.

I wonder if that is why he choked up.

He did well in his sp why would he choke up on the fs?

You are the one speaking with him.

But if you really want my advice

I think it would be rude to bring it up

My sweet boy you never learned to interact with real people

Did you even notice Katsuki before you danced with him?

I am not doubting your feelings but be careful with that one.

I was quite shocked when he danced and you know what it takes to shock me

He was a fun boy but he always seemed quite reserved.

Be careful that you do not scare him off.

ok so yuuris fine and im really glad hes fine

but why did it take him so long?

ive been worried sick all afternoon

i should have been studying or practicing or sleeping but i spent all day freaking out?

hes my best friend and if anything happened to him i dont know what id do

but he just

idk

i dont want to be mad at him

ok so im gonna tell you something thats gonna sound weird

you should def talk to him and tell him how you feel

but dont do it tonight

ur tired and upset and im guessing you dont actually want to be mad at him

that's not a great mindset to be in to address real problems w/o it devolving into shouting and just making everything worse

so ur number 1 goal right now is to sleep

get some rest

[begin recording] P86151020150900.docx

 

P: It’s so stupid. It really is. I know everything I feel is ridiculous. I just don’t know how I can make it stop.

M: There are tissues beside you.

P: Thank you.

M: Personally, I don’t believe that grieving for a family pet is stupid. Emotions can be frustrating and can happen at inconvenient times, but we are not stupid to have them. They exist, no way around that.

P: …

M: Before we get started, I think we should talk about some goals we can work toward. Do you have anything in particular in mind?

P: I want . . . I want to not feel like this. I want to be able to skate in front of people without choking up, without getting stuck in my head and completely failing. I don’t want to be so scared of everything anymore.

M: I think we should address the last bit first. I like to be upfront with patients about this, since its hard to hear – anxiety is a condition that’s treatable, manageable, but there isn’t a magic cure-all pill. There might be some baseline anxiety living in your head for the rest of your life.

P: I don’t want that.

M: No one does. But what we usually can do is bring it down to a level where it intrudes less into your life. It’ll be like wearing your glasses – you have them to help manage your . . . ?

P: Nearsightedness.

M: Right. The tools we work with here – whether they’re coping strategies or medication – will be a lot like your glasses. You may not need them all the time, but you always have them with you just in case, right?

P: Right.

M: So hearing all that, do you think we can work with your goals?

P: I do want to skate without fear paralyzing me. Can we work on that?

M: We certainly can.   Shall we begin, then?

P: Yes please.

M: From what you’ve told me in the past, a number of the anxiety episodes you've had have to do with skating. I would like to hear the events preceding the most recent attack.

P: … Ok.

M: Take as long as you need.

P: And if I don’t want to talk about it?

M: We’ll talk about something else. Would you prefer that?

P: … No, I can . . . I can tell you. But it is stupid. I wanted to run through my free skate, but my coach wanted me to downgrade my jumps and I . . . I didn’t want to. We have another competition in a week and I really need to work on those but I . . . I missed jumps I haven’t failed in years. It was . . . it was awful. After that I just . . . left.

M: What was going through your mind, when your coach told you to change your jumps?

P: I messed up. I messed up so badly at my last competition. It was . . . it just felt like moving backwards. I knew I was a failure. He knew I was a failure.

M: So you began your routine believing you had already failed yourself and your coach?

P: Yes.

M: And what were you thinking about while you were skating?

P: The same thing.

M: When you usually practice, what’s on your mind?

P: Skating, the performance, the music, the story I’m trying to convey. And I know I should have been focused on that, but I just can’t turn it off, that’s the problem.

M: I understand. I’m sorry for dredging up stressful memories, but I think its important to understand how the cycle begins, so we can figure out the best way to interrupt it before it gains momentum.

P: What do you think I should do?

M: There are several options, we don’t have to go over them all now. I’d like for you to continue regular sessions, but I understand if your schedule doesn’t allow for it.

P: No, I . . . I think this is important. I want to get better. I can send you a copy of my competition and training schedules if you think it would help?

M: We can go over it if you like, but it won’t be necessary. You don’t have to schedule your next appointment right away. You can call the office to request a time, whenever you know what your week is looking like.

P: What else . . . what else do I need to do?

M: There’s a few methods – breathing exercises, thought exercises, medication, diet – you didn’t like that word.

P: Ah, I’m always . . . I’ve always had trouble with my weight.

M: I’m not talking about changing how much or what you eat. I saw in your paperwork that you drink a lot of coffee, energy drinks, things like that. Depending on the person, caffeine can sometimes make anxiety worse. I was only going to suggest you reduce your intake.

P: That might be difficult.

M: You don’t have to cut it out completely, or do it right away. You can drink things with different amounts, maybe go from black coffee to earl grey. There are plenty of options. You don’t have to decide right now.

I was thinking about what you said during our appointment. I still don’t know how I feel about medication. Or, I do know how I feel and I’m nervous.

People say they actually like how emotive I am on the ice. I don’t want anything interfering with the one thing I’m actually good at. How will I know what the right choice is?

Hello Yuuri

Two sessions might be a little soon to start any medication, but it is something to consider and I’m more than willing to discuss it.

Those emotions serve you well only to a point – if they’re interfering with you doing what you love – which is ice skating, the thing you need emotionality for – then that’s where things get to be a problem. The kinds of medications I consider for patients with anxiety aren’t meant to stop you from feeling things, only give you enough time and space so that those feelings don’t overwhelm you.

If you don’t like how you feel on any medication or if they don’t seem to help at all, you can always stop taking them and we’ll try something else. It’s always you’re choice. Therapy isn’t supposed to make you miserable.

That’s often listed as a side effect, but with the kind of workouts you do I’m not sure it would be a problem. You can go over with your coach additional cardio if you feel it’s really important.

The one I’m thinking of prescribing for you has a different unpleasant side effect that I will want you to stay on top of – excessive perspiration. You’ll need to be even more aware of your hydration than ever. It’ll be really easy to lose a lot of water without noticing it, especially at practice.

There’s also a possibility it will interfere with your sleep schedule for the first couple weeks while your brain chemistry accounts for the change. If it persists, change the time of day you take them and see if it helps.

I don’t think I want to start until after nationals. They’re coming up soon and I don’t want any surprise side effects to interfere. After that, my next competition would be in February? So after nationals is the best time to try it.

Topic: Yuuri Katsuki???

 

@skatewhatever: i really havent paid attention before now but i was watching the gpx i thought katsuki was gonna place higher in the final. what happened?

@skatepuppy: it's the curse

          @lohangry: cursed topic post vicchan

                     @skatepuppy: vicchan.jpg

                                @leeeeerooooyjj: vicchan.jpg

                                          @xx_icecat_xx: vicchan.jpg

@skatewhatever: ?????

@leeeeerooooyjj: He’s not really active on social media and he doesn’t interact with fans that much so like take all of this with a grain of salt but the current consensus seems to be some kind of anxiety.

@xx_icecat_xx: hes not really open so its hard to tell just by looking at him but the difference between competitions and gala skates and the vids phichit posts are like whoa

@skatewhatever: phichit?

           @lohangry: rink/roommate

@xx_icecat_xx: the only source of #katsukiyuuri content outside of competitions

           @skatepuppy: our lord and savior tbh

                      @leeeeerooooyjj: Probably president of the fanclub too.

                                 @xx_icecat_xx: excuse you, FOUNDER

@xx_icecat_xx: anyways, they hang out a lot and phichit is always posting

@stakewhatever: ok and what about the dog

           @xx_icecat_xx: yuuri’s dog vicchan

                       @leeeeerooooyjj: He doesn’t post a lot of pictures of him bc the doggo is in Japan and Yuuri skates in Detroit.

@xx_icecat_xx: back to skating though tbh his gala skates are almost always best so if you want to see what hes really capable of go there.

           @lohangry: or lohengrin

                       @xx_icecat_xx: goes without saying

@xx_icecat_xx: anyways that's the crash course in the universe’s last, best hope

@skatewhatever: ???

@leeeeerooooyjj: People scored his gala skates for giggles and if he would skate like that in competitions and land the quads he lands in exhibitions, he’s a serious contender for gold, even against King Vikki

@skatewhatever: lmao ok

@leeeeerooooyjj: I didn’t believe it either but like [link] [link] [link]

            @skatepuppy: iwanttobelieve.jpg

                         @lohangry: scully youre never gonna believe this

@skatewhatever: his performance elements are good but like you gotta actually do the technical shit

@lohangry: dude just watch

@leeeeerooooyjj: start at 2:55 if you don’t believe me

@xx_icecat_xx: lmao how long

@leeeeerooooyjj: 30 seconds

@skatewhatever: WHAT HTE FUCK

@skatewhatever: WHAT THE FCUK

@leeeeerooooyjj: Told you.

@xx_icecat_xx: now go watch the rest of the video

@skatepuppy: rip in pieces new guy

@skatewhatever: what. the. fuck.

@leeeeerooooyjj: welcome to the club

@lohangry: took five years off my life when i first saw it but then he landed it and I gained ten

@xx_icecat_xx: i saw it live and i thought i was gonna faint

HE CHANGED HIS PASSWORD TO KATSUKIS BIRTHDAY

YURI WHAT THE FUCK

 


 

Phichit barely registered when the music in his dream went tinny and changed from Shall We Skate to a generic ringtone, but the moment he did he catapulted into wakefulness and nearly off of his bed, making a dive for whatever was producing the hell-noise on the desk beside him. “Hello?”

“You are not Katsuki.” Russian accent. Weird quality. Phichit paused a moment, before realizing he had answered a videocall and pulling the phone away from his ear.

“No?

“Where is he? I need to talk to him.” Blond boy. A kid. “Do you speak English?”

Russian flag just visible on the sleeve of his jacket. “Yuri Plisetsky?” Phichit asked, halfway around a yawn.

“Congratulations, you win nothing. Where is Katsuki?”

Phichit covered his mouth on another yawn. “He forgot his phone, I think. He has exams all day.”

“Are you his boyfriend or something?”

Boyfriend. That tugged on something in Phichit’s memory, and brought him further into wakefulness. “No?   You’re not the guy whose been texting him, are you?”

“What the fuck? Don’t compare me to that bastard.”

“Ok. Then how did you get this number?”

“Not important. Tell Katsuki we need to talk.”

“Why?”

“Just tell him!” The call ended quite abruptly, and Phichit waited for a moment, staring at the blank screen. The case was different from his case. Probably because he had answered Yuuri’s phone instead of his own. He went into call logs out of curiosity and the kind of absence of impulse control that is available only to the mortally exhausted. Russian country code, but not the same number as mystery boy. Phichit tapped the number and added it to Yuuri’s contacts, before tossing it back onto the desk and burrowing back into his blankets.

No don’t do that!

I still have student teaching and to actually write my thesis.

I’m just not taking any more lecture classes.

Did your review go well?

It went

I think I did fine.

I mean, they gave me permission to go forward with the project.

Jane will say fuck!!!

I can’t believe I said that.

I was so tired

I wasn’t paying attention to what I was typing.

I am so grateful that my coach would not let me get away with skipping English lessons

If only so I am able to understand that turn of phrase

Talking to you is a blessing.

I really don’t see how.

….

I am trying to find a way to say this without sounding very

It is not starstruck? But it is close.

I am happy to talk to you.

I am happier that you reply.

How am I supposed to respond to that?

You do not have to

But you must know you have inspired me

I am reading Pride and Prejudice

I will let you know when Jane says fuck

Spoiler alert:

No spoilers! Let me dream.

I can’t believe you’re actually reading it.

Do you like it so far?

The characters are so lively!

I feel like I could meet them at a party

And have fun with at least half of them.

There’s a version I listen to when I run

Its narrated by a woman.

And I pretend that it’s about cranky lesbians.

That is the most beautiful thing I have ever heard

 


 

 

[Incoming call 4:01 pm]

“Punk ass bitch.” It was the curious tone that got Phichit’s attention before the contents of the phrase, and he responded without heat or looking up from his organic chem study guide: “First of all, how dare you.”

“No, that’s who’s calling me,” Yuuri replied, holding out his phone so Phichit could see. “Did you do this?”

Not bothering to look up and having halfway chewed through yet another pencil, Phichit only glanced at the screen. “I don’t remember.”

“Hello-”

“Other Yuuri! You finally answered!”

Yuuri pulled his phone away from his ear with a flinch, ignoring how Phichit perked up, studying forgotten. “Um. Hi?”

“Did your roommate not tell you I called?”

Phichit shoved a note into his hand. I forgot to tell you Yuri Plisetsky called earlier. I picked your phone up by mistake. “I guess not?”

“Well we have a lot to work on! There’s no time for pleasantries. Check your email.”

“Are you . . . icecat1414?

“Yes. We need to work on your quad salchow so open the link.”

Somewhere along the line Phichit had abandoned working on his bed and had drifted over to Yuuri’s, bringing his ear as close to the receiver as possible. “Um. Why?”

“Because your quad salchow needs work!”

“No, I mean, why do you want me to work on my quads? I thought skating only needed one Yuri.” At this point, Phichit was making grabby hands for the phone, and Yuuri had to prod him to the other side of the bed.

“That was before! Now you need to make it to worlds so you don’t bring shame to our name, or I will never hear the end of it! Open the video!”

“Ok! Ok.”

“I edited side by side comparison of when you fail salchow in competition and when you land it in exhibition. It took hours to do this so you’d better make it work! Finding the same camera angles, auck! I would show you myself but if Yakov catches me doing quads he will skin me alive.”

You have not come to me singing the praises of banquet boy for several days.

Are you still talking to him?

I did notice him before we danced.

You are still worried about that?

And I am noticing him now.

In person?

Like Yakov would let me leave so far into the season.

When have you ever really listened to that old man?

When he has good advice.

But I am noticing Yuuri now.

And when you noticed him before?

I watched some of his videos

I'm sure you were flattered

You could see, right?

And then after the awards ceremony

Everyone was leaving

I offered him a picture and he walked away!

I thought his English might not be good.

But he is studying English so I am not sure what happened.

Mysterious.

I do not know him that well so I could not say what he was thinking.

We have spoken a few times, he was polite but ah

Distant I guess

His mind seemed to be elsewhere.

He was probably thinking about his classes.

Right before a competition?

That’s not the place for it.

Then I don’t know what it could have been.

As I said – mysterious.

Do you text often?

A few times a day

The time zones make it difficult.

More often than we do? You will make me jealous.

Who initiates the texts?

Usually me.

But he has.

What are you saying?

I think I will diagnose poor Yuuri Katsuki with acute shyness.

It is not fatal but it will not make your life easier.

With the way he dances? Really?

And champagne never causes anyone to behave in such a manner.

But he doesn’t seem shy when we talk.

Texting and talking are two very different things

And those are both worlds removed from drunken ballroom dancing.

You’re lucky he’s not been mortally embarrassed by the memory of the evening.

Or disciplined by the ISU for behavior unbecoming.

They would not do that for such a little thing.

Maybe not

They haven’t kicked me out yet.

theyve been texting nonstop for a week!

what could they be talking about?

ok listen.

i know you’re 14 and you think the only thing you could possibly love is the ice but like.

they had a good time.

they got along pretty well.

they made a connection.

they might be just talking about that.

sounds fake but ok

you’re still young and you don’t really have to worry about that stuff.

but just because you don’t understand it doesn’t mean it isn’t happening.

that’s so stupid

katsuki is just some lush?

what does victor even see in him?

wow ok, none of that is true for one

and two, since you’re oh so wise in the ways of the world, think back to the last time victor was this excited for a competition.

what do you mean?

hes always smiling for the camera and taking selfies

oh you sweet summer child.

WHY DO PEOPLE KEEP CALLING ME THAT

no one probably would have noticed if he wasn’t acting so strangely now

but he’s like a kid again because his crush is gonna watch him skate.

Will Yuri Plisetsky take out a hit on me if I don’t get a high enough TES to get to worlds?

bro i do not want to find out

you raised a monster

Oh my god

yuuri jr must take more after his dad

So I’m the mom?

you’re also the dad

a family can be a skater, his bitchy name twin, and a mysterious voice on the other end of the line

Haven’t actually talked to him

DO EEEET

That would be against the rules.

???

hit that mf call button

pretend you butt dialed

NO

its gonna happen naturally

just help things along

I have never butt dialed anyone in my life.

sounds like someones a liiiiiiiiiaaaaaaaaaar….

‘tolerable?’ don’t insult my favorite character Mr Darcy! And I guarantee you would have more fun if you danced. You never know who you will meet. ;) #prideandprejudice #howrude #shutupanddance

help I feel old.

No not allowed cancelled

i had to give Yuri the ‘sometimes people fall in love’ talk

its like a toddler when his dad is remarrying.

Awww Yuri you smol angry kitten

it’s like a Disney movie.

OMG I JUST REALIZED

Yuri and yuuri

only now?!

Yuri JR!

NO STOP IM CRYING

This is the plot of a sitcom

You need to sell the pitch

We could make millions

poor Yuri really does feel like dad is replacing him

Heart warming Oscar bait

no its indi and it takes Cannes by storm

I still can’t believe Yuri didn't realize

i can

he’s got blinders to anything that isn’t on the ice and directly in front of him.

Poor kid

Guess we were all that way at his age though

‘at his age’ like we’re matrons or something

Back in my day we had to skate uphill in the snow both ways!

so, skiing?

No, skating! put your boots on and slide head first down that icy embankment

sounds like a good time.

hello! I got your number off Yuri’s phone

is he being mean to you or anything?

is he bothering you?

No?

I mean, he is a little intense

But I think his heart is in the right place.

Um

Who is this?

apologies!

Mila Babicheva

nice to meet you

or something?

I’m not really sure why people are talking to me?

you are the mystery boy

you used to keep to yourself so much, now that you are talking to anyone, everyone wants in :)

That is so weird.

I’m not that interesting.

not true lol

i did just want to make sure Yuri wasn’t being a pest

i know you are busy :)

No, he’s fine

Thank you for your concern

Good luck at nationals!

thanks! you as well!!

Why do I keep getting texts from the Russian national team?

yuuri im dyin right now

you seduced their cinderella

you adopted yuri jr

now ur part of the family

im crying

hows your russian?

Uh

Minimal

so you can spell victors name and thats about it

OMG REALLY

Yes really

yuuuuuuuri

Yes

yuuuuuuuuuuuriiiiiiiii

Yes, I’m a super fan, ok

not what I was going to say but yuuuuuuuuuuriiiiiiiiiiiii

Phichit

if the whole Russian national team knows who you are

victor does too

and its only a matter of time until he texts worrying if yuri jr is being a brat

I would absolutely die

i would resuscitate you

If you’re my friend you wouldn’t

victor probably knows who cinderella man is

Noooooooo

I don’t remember him being there

I hope he wasn’t

I was probably really embarrassing

victor was definitely there

i did some forensic instagram stalking

he took the usual selfies

seemed pretty standard

Why!

to see if i could find you and cinderella man

but for some reason drunk yuuri seemed pretty camera shy

i found you in the background a couple times

but you were just hanging out

That’s

That’s a relief.

I can’t have done anything that stupid

at least half the men’s hockey team is still in love with you

i wouldn’t call that stupid

Embarrassing

asian john mulaney

Except unfunny

you don’t have to be funny

youre beautiful and smart

STOP

you seduced the entire russian national team and they’re gonna send you christmas chocolate

No

theres gonna be at least one duel in your honor

I would die

calm down juliet

Do you know Yuri Plisetsky?

Yes

He is a little bit of a brat

I can’t figure out if he likes me or not?

No one has been able to figure that out

But if he is bothering you

You can tell him to stop

No, its fine.

I get the feeling it wouldn’t work anyways.

What did he want to talk to you about?

At the final he didn’t seem thrilled that I exist at all

But then he tried to help me with my quad sal and sent me a video of his cat

Now I think he might be mad at me again?

That sounds like our Yuri

Though if you want any help

You can always ask me

I didn’t even ask Yuri

He just sent an email and yelled at my roommate over the phone

That does sound like him

He’s nine years younger than me and giving me advice

I mean it was good advice

But it feels weird

And we have the same name

Its like he’s me in an alternate timeline

Mirror Yuri

My roommate has been calling him Yuuri JR

I have updated my contacts to reflect this new information

No don't!

He really will hate me

How will he know? He’ll just blame me and complain to you :)

That is so weird

Welcome to the family

I hope you know I am literally going to die of embarrassment

You are strong

You will not die

I will

No

Poor Yuri though

It is good to wind him up sometimes

So he will not take himself so seriously

Not too much though

It builds character

But speaking of character!

I have a question about our Mr Darcy

????

I thought he was supposed to be a very great romantic

Why is he so mean?

Character development

He is very unpleasant though

Character development!

You need to read it.

Anything I can say would just spoil it.

He isn’t one of those unpleasant men, is he?

Unpleasant how?

Ah, you know

Pretends to be about logic this and logic that, to cover up their impotent rage and insecurity?

No, but there is one of those. Maybe two.

I do not like those

They’re antagonists. Villains, really.

Well, one of them is. The other is . . . just annoying?

Will there be a duel?

:) Read and find out

Does someone die?

Read!

[astralspirit] come to my strong arms

[astralspirit] do you think I would look good with pink hair

[Sapphire_Sunshine] Yeah girl

[guccipenguinsweaters] dooooo eeeeeeeet

[seung-gillee] boss is respawning

[lightningwish] fRICK

[guccipenguinsweaters] STAY DOWN

[astralspirit] TOO STRESSFUL

[astralspirit] i came out to have a good time

[Sapphire_Sunshine] Yeah lets like walk around and mine rubies or something

[Sapphire_Sunshine] This is not as relaxing as I wanted it to be

[lightningwish] you mean walking skeletons trying to kill you isn’t relaxing?

[seung-gillee] can we finish the dungeon first?

[guccipenguinsweaters] sure

[Sapphire_Sunshine] Sounds good

[astralspirit] omg wait ok

[astralspirit] put this on my tombstone

[astralspirit] whenever victor isn’t talking about his crush on katsuki he is talking about pride and prejudice

[lightningwish] lmao I saw his instagram is he really reading it

[seung-gillee] what is that

[guccipenguinsweaters] romance novel

[seung-gillee] gross

[astralspirit] it is not just a romance novel

[astralspirit] and really yes

[astralspirit] and I think its because katsuki is reading it or something

[astralspirit] im gonna die at one point he just put the book down and sighed so deeply yakov asked him what was wrong

[guccipenguinsweaters] but does he like it?

[lightningwish] if your taste in books isn’t compatible what are you supposed to do

[lightningwish] what would you talk about

[astralspirit] idk I think he likes it

[seung-gillee] another boss coming up

[Sapphire_Sunshine] Ugh skeletons why

[astralspirit] at least, hes really into it

[astralspirit] he just looked at yakov and was like ‘how are mr bingly and mr darcy friends?’ and yakov just gave him that look you know

[astralspirit] the Look

[Sapphire_Sunshine] Isn’t he immune to it by now?

[astralspirit] that's what makes it so much better

[astralspirit] anyone else would be cowering but victor is just sitting there, worried about book characters being nice to each other, yakov doesn’t even register

[seung-gillee] where does he get time to read

[astralspirit] the chapters are really short idk

[guccipenguinsweaters] and he doesn’t try to run dungeons days before a major competition

[astralspirit] don't drag me like this as soon as they introduce dueling we will throw down

[lightningwish] you have like 18 duels scheduled already

[Sapphire_Sunshine] But really though

[Sapphire_Sunshine] Why are Mr Bingly and Mr Darcy friends?

[Sapphire_Sunshine] How did that happen?

[astralspirit] how could someone not be friends with Mr Bingly? he’s so nice

[guccipenguinsweaters] that scene in the movie where Darcy is trying to help Bingly out with the proposal

[guccipenguinsweaters] warmed my heart

[astralspirit] such a good movie

[seung-gillee] what even

[seung-gillee] theres archers now

[Sapphire_Sunshine] they’re obviously comfortable enough for Bingly to poke fun at Darcy

[Sapphire_Sunshine] I can’t imagine anyone else being able to do that

[Sapphire_Sunshine] Besides Elizabeth? Caroline didn’t get away with it and no one else tried.

[lightningwish] write the fic

[seung-gillee] when did this become book club

[seung-gillee] what are you even talking about

[seung-gillee] im not gonna heal you if you get distracted and die

[astralspirit] you’re darcy and emil is bingly

[guccipenguinsweaters] no mickey is darcy, sara is georgiana, and seung gil is mr Collins

[astralspirit] no georgi is mr collins, seung gil is is darcy

[Sapphire_Sunshine] lmao don't put ideas in his head or I’ll never be allowed to go to Brighton

[astralspirit] my love we’ll have to elope

[lightningwish] mila is mr wickham! scoundrel!

[astralspirit] nooooooooo this is very different

[astralspirit] its Rapunzel and im Flynn

[Sapphire_Sunshine] Good bc England this time of year is cold

[Sapphire_Sunshine] If you’re gonna elope me you gotta bring me somewhere warm

[astralspirit] ive got a space heater in my apartment

[astralspirit] ill keep you warm ;)

[Sapphire_Sunshine] Frick guys I gotta run bro needs something

[Sapphire_Sunshine] same time tomorrow?

[lightningwish] yep

[seung-gillee] maybe we can actually play

[guccipenguinsweaters] looking forward to it :D

[astralspirit] see ya~!

[Sapphire_Sunshine has left the chat]

Cornflakes also cannot skate beautifully

Or dance

But you do these things so you cannot be a cornflake

I’m sorry that fate stands against you in such a way

I don’t know I’m pretty stubborn

I think I can do it

Why cornflakes?

I feel like I may not understand?

Cornflakes are all we had in our dorm after practice

Sometimes you don’t have the time or energy to like

Cook a meal? So you just eat cornflakes out of the box right

That’s a thing people do right?

Then you don’t have to do dishes either

We do many strange things this week

Just letting you know if I don't respond

I know you will be busy with your own competition

but if you have time will you watch Russia?

Of course. I was already planning on it.

:D :D :D Thank you!

I cannot wait to see you perform!

My short might overlap with the free though...

Details!

And I don’t think so

And besides I can always steal someones phone

Yuri Jr does not have his championship for two months

He will hold my phone

Will he though?

I will have to change my password

That may be my fault he has your number

He emailed my coach too so

He would have found it anyways

Ah I’m so nervous

Usually I’m just worried about

Ah sorry it was security

But it is a lot of pressure

I want to make them proud

I just worry what will happen if I don’t

Now more people are wishing me luck

and putting time into making me better

so now there are more people I have to

think about

Don’t think about them?

I am sorry

I should have said something different

Sorry

I do get that advice a lot

But we’ve never talked about it before so

But it gets annoying

I am sorry

We should talk about something else

Can I help?

Ah! Ok

Day 4 Jane still has not said fuck

I begin to wonder if this quest will end

with the treasure I seek

I hope you do find it

I will

I like Elizabeth more and more

And Darcy less and less

There are better men to fall in love with

Hmmmm

No I lied

I can see there are good things about him

But there are some very strong problems

I know you will say character development

It can not come soon enough

Where are you?

The Ball

Mr Collins is not one of those better men

Is he one of those unfortunate men you told me about?

The villains?

Yes

He isn’t the worst one

But he is probably the funnier one

And the one that causes the least problems

How much more book is there if

we haven’t met the real villain

Oh you’ve met him

!!!!!!!

It’s not a spoiler

It’s a warning :)

Good

We travel tomorrow

At this point though why did we even leave

It’s just right back to Sochi

Would it have been boring though

Hanging out in a resort town in the winter?

Maybe

Some people wanted to see their families

Probably costs less to fly twice than

to stay there for two weeks

Did you do anything for the holidays?

Its early I guess

Late for me

None of the really important stuff is

during the competition season anyways

Usually

That’s lucky

Are you doing anything?

Ah what you said

The important stuff doesn’t usually

Happen in the competition season

And it’s not easy to do it alone

Yeah

Are you planning to see your family?

They live pretty far away

My sister and my ballet instructor might come up

[<3Yuuri<3 is typing]

It’s the first time I’m back since my dog died

Ah no!

I’m very sorry to hear that

I can show you pictures of my dog?

Ah no thank you

I’m sure he’s very sweet but

I understand

Do you have practice today?

Only a little

We’re supposed to pack

Oh!  Yuri is reading now too

He stole my copy >:[

So now I have to read it on my phone

The horror

But yeah I thought he might be bored

He reminds me of some of the kids I taught

And it’s harder to be away from family when you’re that young

Is he enjoying it at all?

He hasn’t texted me about it since

I hope he does

I feel sort of indebted to him

If I can get him to like a book

However indirectly that might be

It sort of feels like it evens out

It already has not

It helped you in practice, yes?

It did

I’m just worried about the event

[<3Yuuri<3 is typing]

....

Its nerves

I am not sure I could give you better

advice without being there with you

All I can tell you is something I

 think you already know how to do.

Skate the way you dance. Let the music

 take over and tell the story. Let your body be

the instrument that captivates the audience.

I don’t know how to make that happen.

It is natural then. It happens every time

I have seen you on the ice. If your mind

refuses, let your body take over.

It knows what it’s doing.

I think you could probably dance in your sleep

If it’s been good every time you watch

Then please watch me.

I would not dream of missing it.

group chat: un-follow me now, this is gonna be the only thing I care about for the rest of my life

 

[phichit+chu] im sure your wondering why i called you all here today

[de-la-iglasia-leo] did u get ur train tickets?

[phichit+chu] oh right yeah we did but thats something else  

[phichit+chu] well be there the 30th and stay till the second

[de-la-iglasia-leo] will yuuri get drunk enough to reprise his amtrak rant?

[phichit+chu] lol probably not but that brings us to the real issue

[phichit+chu] we gotta figure out yuuris mystery guy

[de-la-iglasia-leo] who now?

[+guanghongji+] STARRING YUURI AS REPRESSED NERD

[de-la-iglasia-leo] stop

[+guanghongji+] PHICHIT AS ULTIMATE WINGMAN

[de-la-iglasia-leo] stop

[phichit+chu] but really guys like yuuri gave a guy his number at the gpx banquet

[phichit+chu] but he has no idea who

[de-la-iglasia-leo] and at this point he’s too afraid to ask

[phichit+chu] theyve been flirting ever since i think

[phichit+chu] and its too late now yuuri will marry the guy without knowing his name

[phichit+chu] and thats why yuuri is not going to drink at the new years party

[phichit+chu] that and he will be too busy texting mystery boy

[phichit+chu] he is going to sit in the corner where all the little kids are watching frozen

[phichit+chu] and he wont even notice i promise

[+guanghongji+] are they really flirting though

[phichit+chu] ok fair idk what yuuri is doing but

[phichit+chu] mystery boy is definitely flirting with him

[screenshot]

[de-la-iglasia-leo] Ok two things

[de-la-iglasia-leo] one yuuri is literally the best bro in the world

[de-la-iglasia-leo] two yuuri is the most oblivious person on the face of the planet

[+guanghongji+] phichit i will DIE

[phichit+chu] he sent some super sappy stuff this morning too but yuuri will literally kill me if I show you

[phichit+chu] i think they graduated to texting in every spare moment they have

[phichit+chu] they already have inside jokes

[phichit+chu] mystery boy sends him good morning and goodnight texts

[+guanghongji+] PHICHIT I WILL DIE

[phichit+chu] i think yuuri might too tbh

[phichit+chu] he doesnt keysmash but like

[phichit+chu] all he sent was a keysmash

[phichit+chu] it was still a yuuri keysmash he did all the letters in order but still

[de-la-iglasia-leo] rip yuuri

[+guanghongji+] f

[phichit+chu] f

[de-la-iglasia-leo] f

[phichit+chu] anyways even if yuuri isnt flirting back in a normal human way

[phichit+chu] he definitely likes the guy so we gotta save him from himself

[de-la-iglasia-leo] this is why u wanted me to look up the banquet pics

[phichit+chu] yeah but it was kind of a dead end there were a lot fewer candids than there usually are just selfies from like the first half hour or something

[+guanghongji+] one day ill go to a banquet and find out the Secrets

[de-la-iglasia-leo] the only secret is the seniors party and its not a secret

[phichit+chu] but there is a secret here

[phichit+chu] somewhere hidden amongst the internet is proof of yuuri and mystery boy meeting

[de-la-iglasia-leo] do u have any clues or anything?

[+guanghongji+] did your coach see anything?

[phichit+chu] nah cc said yuuri looked like he was doing better so he left early

[phichit+chu] but we do have clues

[phichit+chu] clue one: russia country code

[phichit+chu] clue two: a couple other russian skaters have been texting him

[+guanghongji+] who?

[phichit+chu] yuri plisetsky and mila babicheva

[de-la-iglasia-leo] those are both yakov feltsman students

[de-la-iglasia-leo] ok not to be #thatguy but

[phichit+chu] yeah thats what i thought too but

[phichit+chu] yuuri is pretty insistent that it cant be him

[+guanghongji+] like is it really that weird it would be victor?

[+guanghongji+] they were both there and yuuri likes him a lot

[+guanghongji+] why wouldnt yuuri give him his number?

[de-la-iglasia-leo] i mean

[de-la-iglasia-leo] drunk yuuri might

[phichit+chu] ah you guys

[phichit+chu] yuuri was really upset about the whole thing with victor not recognizing him

[phichit+chu] idk if even drunk yuuri would forget about that

[de-la-iglasia-leo] what exactly happened?

[phichit+chu] yuuri said when they met after the competition victor thought he was just a fan

[Leo is typing]

[Leo is typing]

[Leo is typing]

[de-la-iglasia-leo] ok but like

[Leo is typing]

[Leo is typing]

[de-la-iglasia-leo] ok do you remember at skate america

[de-la-iglasia-leo] yuuri did really well in his sp

[de-la-iglasia-leo] and then started freaking the night before the fs?

[phichit+chu] that sounds like yuuri

[phichit+chu] idk if he was really freaking out tho

[phichit+chu] and he ended up doing really well?

[de-la-iglasia-leo] well like he fixated on like really minor issues

[de-la-iglasia-leo] he thought his skate was worse than it actually was

[de-la-iglasia-leo] by any standard

[de-la-iglasia-leo] maybe he mistook what victor was saying?

[de-la-iglasia-leo] do we actually know what really happened?

[Phichit is typing]

[Phichit is typing]

[Phichit is typing]

[Phichit is typing]

[Phichit is typing]

[Phichit is typing]

[phichit+chu] i told you what i know

[de-la-iglasia-leo] its not a lot to go on

[phichit+chu] yeah ugh maybe youre right

[phichit+chu] ok well put victor back on the suspects list

[phichit+chu] with like a big question mark

[phichit+chu] i feel like yuuri would know if it was victor

[de-la-iglasia-leo] yeah thats like my main issue with the theory

[de-la-iglasia-leo] but we know yuuri is oblivious

[de-la-iglasia-leo] or at least actively not trying to know

[+guanghongji+] why wouldn’t he want to know

[+guanghongji+] im confused?

[phichit+chu] there is a lot to unpackage with that

[phichit+chu] yuuri doesnt date

[phichit+chu] hes hung up on skating

[de-la-iglasia-leo] hes hung up on victor

[phichit+chu] same thing really like

[phichit+chu] idk its probably like a celebrity crush thing

[phichit+chu] victor is objectively attractive

[+guanghongji+] tol

[phichit+chu] hes really

[phichit+chu] very tall

[de-la-iglasia-leo] does yuuri have a crush on victor or do you guys have a crush on victor

[+guanghongji+] we are all have a crush on victor

[de-la-iglasia-leo] fair

[phichit+chu] but yuuris crush on victor is the reason hes skating and not the principal dancer at the paris opera house

[de-la-iglasia-leo] quick rank the gpx finalists according to attractiveness

[phichit+chu] yuuri no question hes beautiful

[phichit+chu] cao bin has nice eyebrows and he was nice to me at 4cc last year

[phichit+chu] victor bc tol

[phichit+chu] chris

[phichit+chu] jj bc i saw his tramp stamp once

[phichit+chu] and mickey last bc he kept giving me weird looks for hanging out with sara

[de-la-iglasia-leo] accepted

[de-la-iglasia-leo] jj

[de-la-iglasia-leo] yuuri

[de-la-iglasia-leo] cao bin

[de-la-iglasia-leo] victor

[de-la-iglasia-leo] chris

[de-la-iglasia-leo] mickey

[de-la-iglasia-leo] yuuri would have ranked higher but he never picks my card in cah and i am

[de-la-iglasia-leo] objectively hilarious

[phichit+chu] no one loves mickey

[de-la-iglasia-leo] emil

[phichit+chu] 1 person loves mickey

[+guanghongji+] guys hes not that bad

[de-la-iglasia-leo] does emil like mickey or does he like sara and realizes that the only way to date sara is to functionally date mickey too

[phichit+chu] pffff

[+guanghongji+] ok well I gotta go lmk when you get back to mystery boy

hows mystery boy

beyond being charming

yuuuuuuuuuuriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

Ah Phichit

I wish I remembered meeting him

Talking to him has been

[BRO is typing]

He has been surprising.

I think I’m very happy?

( ´•̥̥̥ω•̥̥̥` )

im gonna cry

happy tears tho

im so glad

is he everything a young man ought to be

[BRO is typing]

I told him about some of my thesis and he seemed really interested

He started reading Pride and Prejudice

BRO

Its fun watching someone read it for the first time

and hes taking an interest in your life outside of skating

please please PLEASE promise me ill be your best man

Ah

I don’t even know his name

that never stopped prince charming and it wont stop you

this is a fairy tale

youve been training for this moment your whole life

I don’t know

He knows who I am but I don’t know anything about him

I like being his friend

I don’t want to assume anything more

from what you told me

it definitely looks like he would be down for something more

maybe not right away but that last bit you sent

if he doesnt throw roses at you at worlds ill throw him into the ocean

Please don’t do that

anyways im sure you know more than you think

you made a connection

Ah he’s

He is very expressive

He isn’t afraid to say what he thinks

He has a dog

LET ME SEE IT

I asked him not to send me pictures

I didn’t want to be reminded

aaa sorry

It’s not your fault

I’m still upset about it

But I feel a little calmer

will you be ok?

[BRO is typing]

I think so

 


 

 

group chat: un-follow me now, this is gonna be the only thing I care about for the rest of my life

 

[phichit+chu] WHAT IF I DIE

[+guanghongji+] dont

[+guanghongji+] dont do that

[phichit+chu] I WILL

[phichit+chu] YUURI REALLY LIKES HIM

[phichit+chu] we gotta find out who mystery boy is

[phichit+chu] he keeps saying things that make me think ‘this is definitely victor’

[phichit+chu] and then he says things and its like ‘theres no way this is victor’

[phichit+chu] but like who else from the russian team would even be there

[de-la-iglasia-leo] i guess all of them since they didnt have to travel super far

[de-la-iglasia-leo] so a bunch of them came to watch and support their teammates

[phichit+chu] only an american would call st petersbrg to sochi not that far

[de-la-iglasia-leo] well they didnt have to leave the country

[de-la-iglasia-leo] it was like 20 hrs for the other north american skaters

[phichit+chu] ok but this just leaves us at square one

[+guanghongji+] cant yuuri just ask for a picture

[phichit+chu] have you like met yuuri

[de-la-iglasia-leo] i mean he can be like

[de-la-iglasia-leo] i dont have any good pics can you please give me one to set as your contact

[de-la-iglasia-leo] and then he has his answer

group chat: un-follow me now, this is gonna be the only thing I care about for the rest of my life

 

[de-la-iglasia-leo] the only thing ive learned so far is that a bunch of the european skaters are reading romance novels

[de-la-iglasia-leo] they have a book club or something

[de-la-iglasia-leo] and if mila and sara arent dating by the end of the year ill die

[+guanghongji+] what

[de-la-iglasia-leo] yeah like eight of them are reading pride and prejudice

[de-la-iglasia-leo] ok i say european but seung-gil lee is somehow involved

[phichit+chu] i need to lie down

[phichit+chu] im gonna die leo

[de-la-iglasia-leo] but like why pride and prejudice

[phichit+chu] mystery boy is reading it

[de-la-iglasia-leo] WHAT

[phichit+chu] yuuri told mystery boy about his thesis

[phichit+chu] so mystery boy started reading it

[de-la-iglasia-leo] and mystery boy probably skates with feltsmans students

[de-la-iglasia-leo] so thats the europe connection

[+guanghongji+] so we just gotta find patient zero and we find mystery boy

[+guanghongji+] so weve all been typing for like five minutes but no one has posted anything

[phichit+chu] it cant be

[de-la-iglasia-leo] nothing else makes sense

[phichit+chu] it cant be

[de-la-iglasia-leo] victor is the first person to post about it in the timeframe that it would have started

[de-la-iglasia-leo] the others are days later

[phichit+chu] maybe mystery boy didnt post about it and victor was just the first to start reading after him

[+guanghongji+] maybe google translate goofed

[+guanghongji+] do we know anyone who speaks russian?

[de-la-iglasia-leo] otabek speaks russian i can bring him in

[phichit+chu] ahhhh

[phichit+chu] is he chill about this stuff

[phichit+chu] i dont want this to turn into a thing

[de-la-iglasia-leo] oh yea hes pretty chill

[de-la-iglasia-leo] he isnt really active on social media either so

[phichit+chu] ok bring him in

He won bronze.

two questions really but dont

the gpx banquet has turned into

the mystery of the century

no one posted anything after 9:02 but we

have some reports that things got wild

JJ said there was pole dancing

Christophe brought it in

There was a lot of regular dancing too I think

Yuri Plisetsky got into a breakdancing competition

WITH WHO

And lost

The Japanese skater

Katsuki

JJ mentioned it because he was a really good dancer

Did he hurt himself?

We both skated against him earlier in the season.

I thought he would at least place ahead of Crispino.

ah man that is what were trying to find out

hold up

[de-la-iglasia-leo] why did yuuri choke?

Did you talk to Yuuri Katsuki at all at the gpx?

nah he kept to himself mostly

Not even at the banquet?

ah the banquet

that banquet

yuuri katsuki is a man of few words

but he let his hips do the talking

like we’ve all seen chris’ underwear so theres no shock value anymore

but yuuri is usually so like

i mean you’ve seen him

why does he keep doing these super serious traditional routines

if they would just give him some eyeliner and something with an electronic beat hed kill it

anyways he mostly hung out with the russians

beat the little guy in freestyle dance battle

then started ballroom dancing with victor

then chris brought out the pole and people started losing their clothes

eventually someone wrangled yuuri back into his shirt and he spent the rest of the event with victor

listen man if you ever need a good core workout find a poledancing studio

that shit is liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit

i thought i was gonna die and i just messed around with it a couple minutes

JJ said that Yuuri mostly hung out with the Russians and Christophe

After the dance battle he danced with Victor Nikiforov

Closer to ballroom dancing than club dancing

Then he was pole dancing

Then he went back to Victor

[Otabek is typing]

[Otabek is typing]

Yuuri’s dancing was very popular apparently

bless u bless u bless u

Did you need something else?

no u have answered my every prayer

Is Yuuri going to be ok?

oh yeah hes fine hes just terminally shy

[Otabek is typing]

If you say so

someone he hung out with from the banquet

is texting him but he has no idea who

he cant be rude and not reply and now the entire

russian figure skating team is reading pride and

 prejudice because yuuri mentioned it to mystery boy

That sounds complicated

we’ve been suffering for days

but yeah thanks again!

see u soon!

[de-la-iglasia-leo] i am about to blow this case wide open

[+guanghongji+] you were gone for a while

[de-la-iglasia-leo] solving the greatest mystery of our generation

[de-la-iglasia-leo] i didnt even have to ask otabek to translate anything

[de-la-iglasia-leo] jj just gave him the play by play

[phichit+chu] HE DIDNT TELL JJ DID HE

[de-la-iglasia-leo] no but apparently everyone there is a little in love with yuuris butt

[de-la-iglasia-leo] he didnt say it but he took long enough to translate jj-to-english that im sure jj said something

[de-la-iglasia-leo] ‘yuuris dancing was very popular’ jj definitely spent like a solid five minutes just talking about pole dancing i guarantee it this is the hockey party all over again

[phichit+chu] oh my god

[de-la-iglasia-leo] so the evening started off with yuuri getting shit faced

[phichit+chu] yeah

[de-la-iglasia-leo] and moved directly into a freestyle dance off with yuri plisetsky

[phichit+chu] that actually explains a lot

[phichit+chu] yuri jr ended up calling yuuri like a billion times

[de-la-iglasia-leo] pfffff

[de-la-iglasia-leo] ok but there’s more

[de-la-iglasia-leo] are u ready

[+guanghongji+] you already said pole dancing

[phichit+chu] TELL ME

[de-la-iglasia-leo] oh no

[de-la-iglasia-leo] pole dancing happens later

[phichit+chu] will you just

[de-la-iglasia-leo] shhhhh shhhhhhh im enjoying this

[phichit+chu] what do we do

[+guanghongji+] what do you mean what do we do

[phichit+chu] we can NOT tell yuuri

[phichit+chu] not right now

[phichit+chu] hes in a good place and this could throw him off

[de-la-iglasia-leo] mmmm and right before a major competition

[+guanghongji+] but wouldnt knowing his crush likes him back like make it better?

[+guanghongji+] i feel like i would want to know

[de-la-iglasia-leo] god he even mentioned the dancing in that one post

[de-la-iglasia-leo] ‘u never know who u will meet’ ‘u would have more fun if u danced’

[+guanghongji+] having a crush for one day and deciding you have to read a book he likes

[+guanghongji+] then making everyone you know read the book too

[+guanghongji+] i feel like i have more questions than when we started

[de-la-iglasia-leo] im having a galaxy brain moment

[phichit+chu] im staring at a poster of king vikki right fucking now oh my god

[+guanghongji+] how many

[+guanghongji+] how many posters

[phichit+chu] just the one and like an inspo board above his desk

[phichit+chu] but he changes the poster every year so im sure there are others around

[+guanghongji+] this is like a movie

[phichit+chu] this is why yuuri will freak out if he finds out hes texting victor

[+guanghongji+] literally nothing will change though!

[phichit+chu] every single one of yuuris problems are in his brain

[phichit+chu] even if nothing changes on the outside

[phichit+chu] it will throw him off

[phichit+chu] hell be so embarrassed oh my god

[phichit+chu] hold on i have to cover the poster

[+guanghongji+] i guess it might be shocking i get that much

[+guanghongji+] i just dont know why it would be so embarrassing

[de-la-iglasia-leo] he gave his number to his celebrity crush after a night of drunk pole dancing

[+guanghongji+] obviously victor didn’t mind it

[+guanghongji+] if everyone likes yuuris butt then that means victor does too

[+guanghongji+] now yuuri knows victor also likes his personality

[phichit+chu] back

[phichit+chu] and bc of the ‘just a fan’ thing he’ll be really confused

[phichit+chu] even if it didn’t happen like he thought it did

[phichit+chu] and never underestimate yuuris ability to become embarrassed by something

[phichit+chu] he doesn’t like people to know he feels things

Have you told Yuuri yet?

hmmm no i think phichit wants to

wait until after the competition

Hmmm

that was a judgmental hmmm

Russia and Japan have theirs at the same time

Won’t they talk about it?

Yeah i think they were going to watch each other

How will Yuuri watch Victor if he

doesn’t know who he’s talking too?

ah shit

otabek-altin has joined the chat

 

[de-la-iglasia-leo] heyyy otabek brought up a good point

[de-la-iglasia-leo] if yuuri doesn’t know who mystery boy is how is he gonna talk to mystery boy about the competition

[phichit+chu] shit

[phichit+chu] also hey!

[+guanghongji+] hey!

[otabek-altin] Hello

[otabek-altin] If Yuuri overthinks things so much he might have already realized it will come up

[otabek-altin] If he hasn’t he will

[phichit+chu] shiiiiiiiiiit

[otabek-altin] If you tell him sooner he will have more time to understand it

[otabek-altin] I don’t know why he would be upset if he likes Victor that much but if you think it is likely then give him as much time as you can

[phichit+chu] thanks man

[phichit+chu] i gotta figure this out
