*the proposal

My secret episode theory:  If there is a fourth episode of Sherlock, it will reveal that the entirety of series four is actually a hallucination on the plane during the five-minute exile, whereupon Sherlock will tell Mycroft to arrest Vivian Norbury and Culverton Smith, completely replace the staff at Sherringford and schedule him regular playdates with Eurus.  He’ll also forbid Mary to go anywhere near aquariums - just in case - and slap John’s phone out of his hand and stomp on it.  Then slap John, just for good measure.

After which he will rush to St. Bart’s and snog the living daylights out of Molly.

“Baby I lied there’s no gala. I brought you here because of our love for art. We enjoy traveling to museums, having artsy dates and even showcasing art about our baby\ud83d\udc36 in our own home. If someone could describe our love it could only be done through a work of art. It is happy, fun, chaotic, inspiring and strong. I want to keep discovering art for the rest of my life by your side.

Chelsea Miller, will you marry me?”

I PROPOSED!! 

BE PROUD TO LOVE WHO YOU LOVE!

MUSIC COVER BY- DYLAN JAMES

God damn it this is so touching I'm crying so much

This is the reason why Victor (and I) feel like it is a marriage proposal:

Yuuri: (To Victor) Please be my coach until I retire! (Subs)
Yuuri: Intai made, boku no koto, onegaishimasu!

Do you know what he uses in here
He uses boku no koto
Not boku no coach (looks weird but you get what I mean)
Boku no koto: It’s like please be mine

So it feels more like Yuuri’s saying: Until I retire, please be mine!

THIS SO GODDAMN TOUCHING DO YOU GET ME

Victor kisses his hand like a response towards his proposal.

Victor: (so gentle and lovingly) I wish you’d never retire.

Victor: (Yes, I’ll be yours forever)

DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH I CRIED AM AND STILL CRYING OVER THIS SCENE NOW

EDIT: A little error up there. When Yuuri says “boku no koto” onegaishimasu, it’s like saying he’s entrusting himself to Victor’s care (which makes more sense now that I think about it, because I realized boku no koto is like about me. Credits to @miyukieijun for pointing this out!)

Chelsea ( @opensmother-lippedlover​ ) and I ( @jessjust​ ) met December 5, 2012 on Tumblr (Yup, I remember dates well). Immediately I noticed how sweet, polite, and interesting she was. We continued to talk here and there, and making our relationship official months later. We dated for about six-months. Initially everything was great, but the long-distance was awful and we were too young to know how to handle it. We called it off. We went our separate ways; fell in-love here and there with other people. 

Years later I was working for the Texas Legislature, near done with my undergrad degree, and with the flexibility to move anywhere. I then realized how much I kept thinking about her, wishing to share the precious memories I was making at my job, how supportive and uniquely proud she would be — and truly how much love I still had for her. Not knowing where she was in life I decided to reach out to her, told her how I felt and she left me waiting (lol) Some time later she finally came around and told me she felt the same way. Well the rest is really history. 

(The day she asked me to be her girlfriend)

We left Philadelphia and houston, and we moved to Chicago after I got a scholarship at DePaul Law School, and she began her education to become a Veterinarian. Most importantly we created our own little family with our baby Gatsby, a cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Now I’m proud to call her my fiancée. I would give my life for her. 


We’ve had bumps here and there like any other couple, but we love each other enough to fight for each other. That’s what’s important. And why I proposed December 17, 2016 at the art institute!

She may still get mad at me when I forget to place the new toilet paper in the holder and I may still get annoyed when she talks through a movie. All in all, that’s what a relationship is about loving each other and ironing out the little differences.

We want to share our little story with details sometimes left out by the media. With our relationship on the spotlight I hope this encourages others to love and work hard for their relationships ❤️ love is out there, it’s just hard to keep.

(This is an old video Chelsea’s dad filmed of the first time we saw each other again after years apart)

These pics got a story behind.

At the end of 2009 I was tasked by the (now defunct) agency I was working for to create some artwork with Mario characters. Nintendo was a customer for which we did advertising online for every game, so proposing something different seemed a viable thing to do.

I don’t know if the project ever got greenlighted by Nintendo, we were kept in the dark as much as possible by management. (my guess is NO)

Anyway I did a great deal of artwork involving the characters in everyday life often in real-world settings (Peach acting cool, Mario playing at the arcade, Mario and Peach at sea) before being moved on some other more urgent project. I never asked, they never told, and eventually all the art ended in backup drive, forgotten for years…
