Yuri!!! on Ice Episode 12 left me with so much happiness EXCEPT for this one.

It has been mentioned as much in the previous episode: Yuuri wasn’t the only character thinking of retiring after the final. There’s also this guy, Christophe Giacometti.

His reasoning is easier to understand; he’s 25 years old and will be 26 soon. In the world of figure skating, it can’t really be considered young and Christophe knows this.

However, unlike Yuuri, Viktor, Yurio and other characters who are more “expressive”, Christophe doesn’t really show his feelings blatantly, if you know what I mean.

He looked happy and all smiles after his free skate, receiving a flower crown from Minako and winking at her, blowing kiss as usual to the audience as you can see in the above pictures.

But his closest people knew how he was actually feeling inside. His coach and - I guess it’s safe to say - his boyfriend knew that Chris must be disappointed. Just look at the change of his expression there. However, his coach and boyfriend also knew that Chris is strong, that Chris will be alright, which was why they smiled at him.

I think Chris is the kind of person who would prefer to silently cry alone, only known to his closest people, and maybe he would really do that after this. Imagine when you thought this would be your last season and you wanted to win for once since your arch-rival wasn’t there, but then you were absolutely outrun by all the younger guys. Heck, he didn’t even get to the podium this time, not even a Bronze Medal for him. There was no way he wasn’t disappointed.

But he faced it calmly with a smile.

I think among all the skaters, Chris is by far the most mature and the “strongest”. He is absolutely one of my favorite characters and whether he retires or not, I really wish that he would be happy.

I kinda dont like the whole “you must reblog art or you kill the artist” thinking that have popped up… Like yes, reblogging is spreading. But thats also why I think it’s up to you what you want to “advertise” on your blog, or something. Honestly most of those posts are just such GUILT TRIPS and also a bit of ‘EVERYONE gets a medal’-like in thought process and it seems so childish.

I know this might sound hypocritical of me to say because I already gained some type of online popularity but just, never feel FORCED to reblog my art ok? I am super grateful if you do, really, but if you find that it’s just not something you want to share then you don’t have to! Just do it if you like it! I don’t want to be coddled and made to believe something I did was better than it was. That will just dissappoint me in the end when for ex. my art seems well liked but I can’t get commissions or followers.

A Mega Ultra jacksepticeye inspirational quotes compilation!

I hope these help all you beautiful people as much as they have helped and still help me! @therealjacksepticeye

Life’s full of secrets. You just gotta go looking for them.

It doesn’t matter if your passion is arranging shoes or something like that,
whatever you enjoy doing, whatever makes you happy, whatever you feel like gives you that drive to get up the morning and you feel like you really want to do something…that- it’s so important that you find that in your life.

Doing what is easiest and simplest is not always a good idea. Sometimes it’s the hardest stuff that is the best stuff to do.

No matter what thing you’re doing, no matter what job you’re doing, no matter how much you love it, it’s not easy and simple 100% of the time.

As long as you’re writing from your heart and writing honestly, that’s art and no one should ever judge you for that.

Learn from your weaknesses and fears, embrace them. Then nobody will be able to use them.

If you do have something individual in you to definitely pursue that and make it your own thing but there’s no shame in also conforming and fitting in. ‘Cause some people don’t have the confidence to be an individual, some people don’t have the confidence to go out there on a limb and be that weird, quirky, unique thing. Sometimes people are happiest just when they’re fitting in and there’s nothing wrong with that. I would lean more on expressing your individuality more, though.

You can wait all you want for great things to happen, but why not try to make them happen right now because none of us know what’s going to happen tomorrow.

I have no idea what we’re doing or why we’re here, but I’m glad that you’re with me. Glad that YOU’re with me too. I don’t wanna go on this trip alone.

Everything will be alright maybe not today but eventually!

If your out there and your feeling discriminated, if your feeling alone, if your feeling like there’s absolutely nowhere else to turn there absolutely is! There’s always somewhere to turn. There’s always someone that’s willing to listen. There’s always somebody who’s going through the same thing you’re going through. It just takes time to be able to find them, and to be able to open up. So just hang in there and be strong, and keep up the good fight, because bright days are ahead. It may not be today. It may not be tomorrow. It may not be next week, but brighter days are coming and they will happen, and you’ll be happier than you’ve ever been before because of that, because of that patience. I know it’s hard, I know there’s a struggle there. I can’t even begin to imagine what it’s like to go through that. But I believe in you!

You should never ever feel bad being who you are, at the cost of upsetting other people. You should be allowed to be who you are, who you want to be, to be safe and comfortable in your own skin, and not feel attacked in that.

Go out there, enjoy yourself, make the most of what you have because none of us know how long we have on this plane of existence, none of us know what lies beyond this; this state of being; a lot of us wish for things that are beyond this,
a lot of us are waiting for that, but we don’t know and because we don’t know, i say that, that makes trying worth it right now. You can wait all you want for great things to happen, but why not to try to make them happen right now, because none of us know whats going to happen tomorrow. So, try your best right now and what you have in this situation that you’re in at this moment in time, you don’t have to do amazing things, but as long as you’re trying your best to make the most of it then that’s a success in my mind, so just don’t take anything for granted.

All you need is a strong heart and a good attitude and you will get anywhere in life.

We’re all human and flaws come out every now and then but, if you want to be positive in your day, if you want to be positive in your life, in your job, try and celebrate the little things. If you do something that’s just like, nothing. If you write
down your to-do-list for the day celebrate that. Be happy in what you do, be proud of the little things that you do each day, I think…You just kinda have to go out there and just do it. You have to go out there and grab life while you can. Go out there and make the most of the time that you have. Cause you only get one trip around on this big wheel of life, you don’t get a do-over. You don’t get to wait around for the good things to happen. You have to make the good things for yourself happen now. You have to try and be as happy as you can be in the scenario that you’re in. Not always possible, some people have it very very hard to be happy, some people are in completely terrible and rough, dire situations and I very much sympathize with that and that’s- again, there’s a lot more nuance to this. It’s not just as simple as being “Go out there and be happy”. There’s a lot more to life than just being positive, but if I can motivate people or give some sort of semblance of advice towards that kind of aspect, then I will
try my best. But just know that it’s okay if you’re not positive all the time. It just means that you’re HUMAN.

Life is all about taking steps. You gotta go a tiny bit, one bit at a time. You can’t do life all in one go.

Everyone changes, that’s just a fact of life. No matter what you do, change is gonna happen. The thing is  whether you change for the better or the worst. It’s not a thing of whether you’re gonna change or you’re not
gonna change, that’s just not the way it works. That’s not the way the world works. It’s not black or white like that, it’s always a case of whether you’re gonna change for the better or the worse or how you change as a person.

Just hang in there, better days are ahead.

If you can’t find any inspiration, become it.

Try new things, you might impress yourself.

Time will progress, time will always go on.

Any of the problems or regrets that I might have, it’s molded me into the character I am right now, you shouldn’t be ashamed of your past, you should help it motivate you into a better future.

Earn your success, don’t expect it to be given.

Life’s not all about getting medals. Life is about the journey and the experience and the story you have to tell at the end of it.

You may not think you mean a lot but you really do.

Go out there and show the world who’s boss!

I hope I can be here. As a voice, as a friend while playing video games for you. If you feel depressed or lonely or anything like that Jack is here!

Life will try and bring you down, it’ll harpoon you through the ass, but you gotta keep on movin’ and keep on bossin!

People are just gonna hate you for really stupid reasons sometimes. And you just gotta power through it. You just gotta brush it off. Be yourself. Be happy with who you are. And stop trying to please everybody else. Just be happy. Don’t take the haters seriously.

Go out there and find what drives you, what motivates you, find what your true passion is and just throw yourself at it. It might not work at first and you might feel like it’s going to fail or it’s too much to take on but just make a start somewhere. If you want change to happen, make a start and do it. I believe in you.

I get that change is scary for a lot of people, and they’re used to seeing something the same way for a long time but rest assured I’m still
the same person. No matter what I do, no matter where I go, no matter what I dress as, look like, I’m surrounded by, I’m still gonna be the same person, or at least I’m gonna try to be. I’m still always gonna be- gonna try to be the best person I can be for myself and for you!

So if you’re in that scenario and you feel like your thoughts are just getting worse and worse and you feel like the end is here, it’s not the end. There is always more joy to be had in life. It may feel like it’s the end; it may feel like the worst possible scenario you could be in, and that’s just your entire world at that moment, but all it takes is a moment of clarity to turn that moment of turmoil into a moment of enlightenment. That time might reveal more to you. That after that you might realize to yourself that life IS worth living. That it IS worth going on.
That what you’re going through is not the worst thing that could happen to you at that time. And I truly believe that anybody can get through anything they’re going through. If you’re having a really hard time, I believe that you can get through it. I don’t believe that that’s the be all and end of all of everything. It might not immediately get better, and life never does immediately get better. Life is one of those things that’s worth fighting for. Because the great times do come. And I really believe that there’s great times out there for everybody, that everybody has their moment, their shining time. And it’s not just a case of getting that moment, and then'that’s it.’ There’s plenty of moments to be had, and your moment is right around the corner! Believe that! And hang in there, and trust in yourself to get there. I believe in you! And I know plenty other people believe in you as well so just hold on and keep on fighting that good fight. And if you feel
like you’re just stuck in a rut somewhere, anything can happen on a day to day basis…. life’s weird, but life is fantastic.

For the world is yours, and you can do whatever you want. As long as you put your mind to it, anything is possible. So go out there, and get
what you need!

If I can make one person laugh or smile then I consider what I do to be a success.

It’s not about the final product, it’s about the journey, the experience, the thrill of putting something together saying, ‘yes! I did this!’

Go beyond your limits, go beyond whatever it is you think you’re capable of.

Sometimes you gotta have downs to have ups. It’s not always gonna be fucking rainbows and sunshine all the time. That just doesn’t work. That isn’t life. Life is gonna kick you in the hoochies every now and then, you just gotta go ‘Hey that hurt! That made me cry. But I’m gonna get up stronger from that and not get kicked in the hoochies again!

If you’re going through absolute sadness you definitely, you 100% have the capability of turning that around and going through absolute joy.

Like, sadness helps you experience the good times as well. How do you know what’s good if you don’t know what’s truly bad? You have to have
some of the dark times to experience the light every now and then.

Please keep your chin up, you may not feel it but you are a unique beautiful individual in your own way.

You’re never alone.

Sometimes it’s good to take a deeper look at yourself and see the flaws so you can work on them and become a better person.

International Soccer Player Star Lexa au is and forever will be my dream

The heat rolled off of the pavement in the afternoon. Stagnant and ornery, it listlessly bullied everyone in the streets until they were just as uncomfortable and oppressed, just as mad, just as sweaty and tired and beat up like the harsh summer day. The bustle of the street didn’t stop though, despite the heat, despite the heaviness. Instead, people milled about as best the could, fanning themselves with their hands or papers or ducking into stores, eating ice cream, and failing against nature itself.

They’re getting married.

With the sweat on his back sinking uncomfortably into his costume, Victor’s first and only thought is that they’re getting married. There are cameras flashing at them at blinding speeds as they hold up their medals, recording their every move, and the reporters yell for their attention. Victor drowns them all out.

Victor can’t exactly spare anyone a second of his glance.

Not when from the top podium, his fiancé holds up his gold medal with pride and just a hint of overwhelming disbelief, still in shock that he actually won. 

Not when Yuuri looks down at him with twinkling dark eyes and a breathless, slow grin, sweat beading at his hairline, looking like a masterpiece that has come to life. 

Not when he stares at Victor with his chest heaving, beautiful brown eyes shiny with happy tears, as if to say, Look at me, Vitya. Look how far I’ve come.

The sight makes Victor’s throat run dry, makes his gut flutter and his heart hammer inside his chest with the bruising force of his adoration. It makes Victor want to say, Happiness and a gold medal looks beautiful on you, solnyshko.

It makes him want to say, you make me fall in love with you again and again.

It makes him want to say, you are everything I’ve ever wanted.

It makes him want to say, please marry me. Please stay forever. I love you, I love you, I love you—

It’s a nice cafe where they are waiting for JJ. Yuri slumps on the chair and chewing his muffin while Otabek is sipping Vanilla Latte when a group of hockey players stride through the door, joking around and generally being loud. Yuri frowns at them. 

“—shouldn’t even be a hero of Russia anyway,” one of them says and the others nod in agreement.  

“He wasn’t so impressive,” another adds. “The judges were probably bribed too.” 

“I know! What’s so good about that guy anyway? Living Legend my ass, he’s more like Balding Legend instead.” They laughed at the comment. 

“Yeah, but you know what I hate?” A blond guy sips his coffee noisily. “That he can fucking get Katsuki. Like what the fuck? Katsuki wastes his time for that guy.” 

Otabek sees Yuri’s eyes widen as he swears, “What the fuck!?” 

“Bet I could rock his Eros more, if you know what I mean,” the man drawls. 

Uh oh, Otabek winces. 

“THE FUCK DID YOU SAY, MOTHERFUCKERS?” Yuri slams his hand on the table, eyes glaring on the hockey players across their table. “WHO THE FUCK DO YOU THINK YOU ARE, TALKING SHIT ABOUT THE OLD MAN?” He stands up to fight them, but Otabek luckily catches his arm in time. “HE FUCKING HAS MORE GOLD MEDALS THAN ALL OF YOU STUPID ASS COMBINED!” 

“WHAT THE HELL PUNK!?” All hockey players stand up, Otabek can see some of them grabbing the hockey sticks. 

They need to abort, now. 

Yuri, however, is undaunted by their display of aggression. With impressive flexibility, he raises his foot and kicks Otabek’s Vanilla Latte straight to the men. The paper cup spills the drink all over them and Yuri smirks, “Heh.” 

It is, in a true chaotic situation that Otabek manages to impress himself by slapping some money on the table for all the troubles the Café goes through; dragging Yuri by the back of his shirt out of the café; and running through the street with an angry Yuri and a horde of angrier hockey players. 

“Let go of me, Beka! I need to teach these assholes!” 

As if Otabek will let Yuri throws himself to the wolves. It’s a good thing that Yuri is smaller than him, but still he gets tired from running and holding Yuri back at the same time; while Yuri’s energy is fueled by rage and it seems there’s no stopping for the hockey players either. 

Luckily, a superhero comes to rescue. 

“Beka? Yura? What are you doing?” JJ’s eyes are wide as he quickly follows them running, taking the sight of Otabek agitated face as he drags murderous Yuri. 

“Behind,” Otabek wheezes and JJ turns his head. 

“Never mind.” JJ hauls Yuri on his shoulders. 

The horde of hellhounds are still on their heels and Yuri—still perched on JJ’s shoulders—screams, “FUCK ALL OF YOU! VICTOR NIKIFOROV IS THE GREATEST FIGURE SKATER IN THE WORLD AND YUURI KATSUKI HAS NO TIME FOR ALL OF YOU PATHETIC SCUMS!!!” 


A viral video is posted that day, and Victor can’t stop crying about ‘his darling son, defending his parents’ honor’. 

That day, incidentally is the same day Victor lost some of his hair by said son tearing it off from anger and embarrassment.

Promises

This is definitely my favourite moment from episode 12 because both Victor and Yuuri are just so precious in this?

Look at this beautiful boy who declares he’ll win just so Victor could kiss his medal. He just wanted to retire but how could he when Victor says he failed as a coach? He’ll skate one more year and he’ll win this time ok.

But then as much as I love Victor’s ridiculous puppy eyes (same Victor, same) his answer is just so perfect because honestly, Victor’s main goal was to make Yuuri confident in his skills and to help him get the best score and the whole time after Yuuri beats his record he’s so proud and happy and Yuuri saying he wants to stay is everything he wanted to hear and yet he demands more. 

Victor, how long have you been thinking about competing with Yuuri while still coaching him? Because it looks like he already calculated all the risk and despite he doesn’t hesitate for a second? He’s so in love I can’t handle it and I also love how he puts Yuuri’s medal around his neck as if he was stating that it’s still valid but at the same time he says he wants Yuuri to win more times as he deserves.

Victor knows this is ridiculous, he was the only person ever to be able to do something like that and he was much younger when he started and he still totally looks like he thinks Yuuri could do this. Even when he does that super sweet thing with his face when he winks (I can’t find the gif but you know which one lol) it doesn’t look like his just teasing Yuuri he really is able to believe that at that moment even if he knows how it sounds. And then Yuuri doesn’t say it’s stupid or he could never do it, he says “okay”?!

He’s moved to tears because of how much Victor believes in him and how much Victor wants to do for him so they could stay together and so they could compete on the same ice because Yuuri always wanted that and promising Victor he’ll win for him is the least he can do in return?

Like this is the moment where most of their dreams come true and instead of just celebrating they sit there declaring absurd things to each other because they believe so much in the power of their love I’m so done with them, bye.

Ok, ok so. First of all, the entire dialogue here was so tense, the entire “how come you haven’t won a gold medal yet” literally had me clenching my pillow and holding my breath thinking what the fuck is going on, and then–

this. I swear, Just seeing his face not frowning, so genuinely open in awe, in surprise, gave me all the hope that it was ok, it was all going to be ok. This was the beginning of my salvation.

(bc you’d better believe I bawled my eyes out for the full four minutes that followed, and then some)

this man is about to get that 221.58/10

something something yakov pov i have nothing but a bunch of scribbles

and a joke about how much Yurio hates Minami, for some reason?



The rink seems very empty without Vitya. Knowing that one day, Vitya would no longer skate is a lot different than facing the reality of the ice without him. It’s a jar every time he comes in to the rink. Yakov always takes a deep breath in, ready to scold Vitya for being there already - but the rink is empty, every time.

Every since Vitya had been a very small child, Yakov had thought, vaguely, that one day Vitya would take over coaching for him. Yakov didn’t have children, besides his skaters, and Vitya was his first and brightest. Not right away, of course. A few seasons doing serious choreography, a few years assisting Yakov – and then he would be thirty-five or so. Married, maybe. Possibly with a baby to further Russia’s glory, for Yakov to teach. Then. Perhaps. Perhaps.

-

Yakov had always thought that if anybody was going to be a fairy luring someone alway into the underworld, it would be Vitya – but it was Vitya who left, following after dark eyes and a sweet mouth, enticed by a dance and a promise.

“Absurd,” he says.

“What the hell,” says Yura.

“Nothing!” says Yakov, whirling around. “Go practice your step sequence! That’s what is absurd! You think you can win over Katsuki dancing like that? You look like an elephant in a ballroom!”

Yura scowls. “Shut up, old man!”

Yura was lured away too, but he came back. Yakov must be careful of this Katsuki.

-

The first time Yakov really pays attention to Katsuki - besides the attention he pays to every skater that competes or will compete against his stable - is when Katsuki is being hauled off by Celestino, sodden to the gills.

Vitya stares after him and says, “I’m going to marry that boy.” Yakov has a single moment to hope that Vitya isn’t serious, before Vitya looks at him with all the terrified joy that Yakov remembers from when he first saw the most beautiful girl in the world dance the Dying Swan. “Yakov, I’m going to marry that boy.”

There’s an appalled silence before little Yura saves Yakov the trouble and screeches, “Are you fucking with me?

Vitya’s eyes are blown wide, pools of black with just a thin ring of electric blue around them. He looks alive. He hasn’t looked this alive in a very long time. “I have to get his number,” he babbles. “I have to –”

“And what will you court him with?” cuts in Yakov, before Vitya can go really maniac. “Another gold medal? Stupid boy!”

Vitya looks taken aback. “I –”

“Do you expect the boy to fall into your arms and weep with gratitude to be there?” says Yakov, ruthless. “Perhaps you think he wants to look up at you from the silver podium. A nice way to treat a competitor!” He clicks his tongue. “Go ask Lilia Baranovskaya how much she cared for my medals!” He cuffs Vitya like he’s fifteen again, and wearing that awful black thing. “You don’t catch a dancer with that.” Someone who moved like that, like Lilia Baranoskaya, would never condescend to be caught. A creature like that was like the Firebird, coming to you only of its own will, and only as long as it chose.

-

It’s hard not to resent Katsuki, but Yakov can’t find it in himself to hate him, either.

-

Yakov wonders how he could have ever looked at Katsuki and not seen a boy. Just a lonely boy, who misses his lover. Yakov takes off his coat and drops it on Katsuki’s shoulders. It’s warm enough in here for him, and from what he’s heard about Katsuki’s home town, he’s probably freezing.

“That idiot will yell my ear off if he thinks you caught a cold,” he says.

Special Talk with Nathan Chen and Shoma Uno at 2017 Dreams on Ice

“By receiving motivation from each others’ quads”. From World Figure Skating No.79

The two of you know each other since your junior days. Do you remember your first impressions of each other?

S: We weren’t in the same competitions in the Junior Grand Prix Series, but even without the triple axel, Nathan would receive way higher points than me when I also didn’t have my triple axel yet. By knowing this, I realised that it’s possible to get such high marks without having difficult jumps.

In comparison to your impression of him back then, what is your impression of him now?

S: Nathan has become so grown up and mature, while I’m still far from being there.

N: Shoma, you’ve matured as well. (laughs) As he said, we first met around the time of the Junior Grand Prix Series, but I don’t remember much from then. What I do remember is Junior Worlds. I watched Shoma’s performance with Nam, and it was shocking how good of a performer he was. He had so much speed and power. Back then, he seemed like a young child so I was so taken aback when he started skating. His learning speed is so quick, and he’s gotten even better in the past 2 to 3 years. He pushes forward the field immensely and pushes me to move forward as well.

So with the YOI in-universe-ISU-judges showing the same amount of bias as their real life counterparts, how many times do you think was Yuuri robbed from getting a medal at the GP qualifiers/4CC and how /pissed/ are his in-universe fans about it? ((I mean his past programs may probably not have always showcased his truest potential and we know he didn't always skate cleanly, but CooOoMe OooOnN??? he's Japan's Ace??))

I did a post on twitter on why I think there’s even some in series evidence you could pull for this, although it very may not be intentional. *searches for the thread* Here it is:

I can honestly believe that in the YOI world, Yuuri Katsuki has spent years being severely underscored.  If you look at the comp of his GPF SP it looks to be clean except for a mistake on his 3A, yet the score is 82.80. That’s WITH a clean 4t/3t and a clean 3ltz, along with his apparently through the roof PCs and level 4… everything (Yuuri’s apparently famous for his footwork and his spins at top notch, after all).

When you look at the blurry little protocol sheet we see in ep four, his GOE even on non-jump elements is pretty low, and his PCs he says tend to save him are 42.38 (which are solid but far from holy shit amazing). Plus a few of his elements (including his step sequence, which he’s supposed to be like THE BEST THERE IS at) aren’t even marked as level four by the judges. 

On the same score sheet, there’s also no deduction on Yuuri’s jumps or carrots to denote underrotations so assumedly he just had a messy landing on that 3A.

Yuuri topped his highest score at the Chugoku event by ‘over 10 points’ so that means his highest score EVER was under 84 points. JJ’s short program score at the GPF was higher than this. 

(Victor going back and watching old Yuuri programs and getting SO HEATED about his scores, and Phichit is like YOU UNDERSTAND!! They’re not the only ones there’s posts upon posts and threads upon threads of this online.)

Oh my, I realize you have many asks so feel free to answer simply or not at all, I don't mind! What are your thoughts on Victor's treatment of Yuuri in the beginning (ep 2) to now? I'm thinking of "savage" Victor with his 4 piggy/weight/mediocre comments. He softens toward Yuuri after of course but do you think he'd still have a natural tendency to bluntly tease Yuuri? I know some people call Victor's "don't feel like kissing if it isn't gold" a lil mean but it just isn't at the same level? :)

Victor’s initial roasting of Yuuri (and Yurio) has always struck me as simply what Victor is used to receiving himself. He considers Yakov the “only coach for him.” And what does Yakov do every chance he gets? He roasts Victor.

It’s “tough love,” if you will.

Yuuri doesn’t need to lose weight for cosmetic reasons. He needs to get in shape because he’s an athlete. However, I don’t think Victor understands how harsh he comes across at times.

To him, being hard on someone is a way of guiding them in the direction he feels will benefit them. It’s what Yakov does to him.

As for the “I’m not kissing anything but gold” scene, I think Victor was just being humorous. That entire scene was dripping with sarcasm.

“Aww, you didn’t win gold? Wow, I’m such a terrible coach. I’m so disappointed. Whatever could I kiss instead of a gold medal? Yuuri, do you have any ideas?” *puckers up*

I also think Victor was prodding Yuuri not to retire in that scene. It was a “keep trying” message.
