For some of us, books are as important as almost anything else on earth. What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet or excite you. Books help us understand who we are and how we are to behave. They show us what community and friendship mean; they show us how to live and die.
What’s cool about Tom is he doesn’t get embarrassed too easy. So you’ve tried to embarrass him? Of course! 9 times out of 10 I’m the one that’s mainly trying to attack him… He’s very confident in who he is, which is cool. So it’s hard to make fun of him, which sucks, but I try my best.
Can we just take a moment to appreciate @taylorswift and Selena including each other in their videos? Because it’s honestly adorable and such a subtle slap in the face to the media who seem to think that taylena aren’t friends anymore and feel the need to write an article about their “falling out” every 3-4 days
some very important Christophe Giacommeti & Viktor Nikiforov headcanons:
shoutout to @lavenderprose who has the same brain as me when it comes to YOI/Viktor hcs
Chris and Viktor have been friends for 10+
years. if the scene with Viktor at juniors is his last year as a junior, that
means they met when Viktor was about 15 and Chris was about 13. They have
almost certainly been through Some Shit together and know the other one better
than they know themselves.
every year at worlds, the night after the free
skate, regardless of the results, the two of them buy 3 bottles of shitty wine
and watch whatever movies they’ve been texting each other about throughout the
season. The Notebook, Pitch Perfect, The
Avengers, whatever it is, they get
wine drunk and MST3K the hell out of it after the medal ceremony.
(they keep doing this even after Yuuri –
actually, Yuuri was invited one time but couldn’t quite get the hang of the
banter. you can’t make up 10 years of friendship for 6 months of dating, no
matter how in love you are.)
They are fully aware of the idea that they’re
dating/have dated/are sleeping together/have slept together etc. They think it’s hilarious. There’s even a
ship name for it – Viktophe – and they regularly browse the twitter tag and send
each other screenshots of the funniest ideas.
they also read the RPF about them to each other
in hotel rooms during events
that meme where one person bursts into the room
like “I knew you were having sex” and one of the pair is like “oh no one told
me I would have put down my book”? that’s them.
They have biweekly bitchfest skype/phone calls
where they just dish on whatever dumb shit has happened to them recently.
When they were younger and Viktor still had
really long hair Christophe would fix it for galas and events. He really liked
to try out pinterest/youtube tutorials but didn’t have a model so Viktor would
volunteer, then show up to a sponsorship event with like a hairbow updo.
you’d think Yakov would hate him considering the
both of them 100% are terrible influences on each other re:acting like drama
queens, being massive flirts, buying lululemon yogas with “peach” emblazoned
across the ass
but actually Chris is a really good influence on
Viktor in more important ways. i.e. ensuring he doesn’t kill himself and making
sure Yakov knows to keep an eye out on him.
there have been at least 3 times Chris has
called Yakov at an ungodly hour of the morning insisting he go check on Viktor
because he was very worried that Viktor was going to do something stupid
chris is almost always right about this. yakov
has found his star skater on the ledge and had to coax him down and into the
shower more times than he’d like to admit. chris knows viktor, knows his tells,
knows when he’s starting to get bad again
by the time they’re 20 and 22, yakov goes to
chris if he’s worried about viktor’s mental health but viktor won’t talk about
it. no one’s ever said it aloud, but
they all know that Chris may well be the reason Viktor is still alive
tl:dr – chris has been worried about his best
friend for a long time and when he sees how viktor lights up with yuuri, he
gets to breathe easy for the first time in a long time
Aries: I love Aries so much, they’re just all round amazing. Like they've got this ability to just go their own way and lead people, truly admirable. Also, they’ve got this personality that I personally think is so hot like you can be a complete asshole but you’re a kind hearted asshole whose kind just looking out for yourself and everyone that you love. Okay so you my gentle asshole needs to be my friend okay? You’re like Heath Ledgers character in 10 things I hate about you man.

Also, you’re super chill and it relaxes me, kinda calms me down when I’m around you guys. SO yes, much love for you babies.

You guys are that cute kid who doesn’t say much but when you do everyone’s like “holy shit let me hold you you’re so cute”.
Leo: I’m gonna start off by saying, literally all my best friends are Leos. I love Leos so much, they’re so sassy and like “yes I’m hot, fight me” and that to me is like yes, you slay baby girl. Also, ya’ll bitches are some loyal as hell, you’re ability to stand with people throughout anything is phenomenal. Also, I’d like to give a shout-out to all the Leos who holy the other crazy ass signs hands and tell them when they need to pipe down and get their crap together. It’s probably because of you that most of your friends with other signs are still alive right now tbh. You go Leos, you keep milking everything you can outta life.
Virgo: Beyonce. Virgos are the bomb, they’re so driven and focused and literally don’t stop till they’ve got what they wanted. Teach me your ways cause you’re all mad successful and amazing at whatever it is you’re doing. I’m jealous tbh. I know I can always count on my Virgo babes to tell me what is really up, you feel me? You guys inspire me to get off my lazy ass and do something with my life and you’re also the people that are there for a cute warm hug and pick you up when you’re down. SO MUCH THANKS.
Libra: When I think of Virgos I think of endless partying and junk food on one day and crazy studying and working-out the next. Shout-out to all the Libras who taught me how I gotta balance shit out in my life. You guys are such peace makers, many thanks for doing you babe. I love how you can just kill arguments and handle things in such a classy way. I would straight up beat a bitch but you guys just hash things out civilly with the ability to beat a bitch and that’s great, fabulous. Also, lastly you guys literally have some of the best date ideas and I’d volunteer myself as a tribute.
Scorpio: Okay, you know Scorpios are mad sexual and can literally make anything they do sexy okay. I’m attracted to you so much, it’s wow. And I dunno if this is all Scorpios but my friends have dated a few and I have so, you guys get like crazy jealous and then kind just jealous make-out and its amazing. You’re so talented in that area, you need an award. But you’re also so smart and like to do all these new things, I could spend hours with you and not regret a thing. Also, you’re always so sweet to other people. You also have a jackass but nice cutie thing going on and people love it ok. YOU GO BOO!
Sagittarius: Have you ever been in need of a good, fun cheering up? Well go to a Sag because they’re optimistic and always ready for a goof time. I love Sag, I love chilling with because you’re so energetic I feel like I don’t have to hold back. And I’m not the only one who is able to let loose and be free around you. You’re such a fun little party animal. Also, if I was in a fight I’d definitely want you on my side because you can literally chop people in half with the words that come flying out of that mouth for hurting you or someone you care about. You’re a top bloke. Much love.
Capricorn: Fear this person. Fear any Capricorn you meet, they’re like the whole package. Your self-confidence is wow, even if I didn’t think you were amazing, I’d still think you’re amazing. You catch my drift? You’re so sweet and kind to people, people just tend to always love ya. You know what to do when to do and you let loose but also you know how to responsible and not go home with a sleezy guy from the bar just cause you’ve had too many shots. This makes sense so… I love how to tend to love the classics and how you keep every single little even in that beautiful brain of yours. Wow, I’m gonna stop before I fall in love.
Aquarius: You know how in movies there’s always that one person who does things different and people kinda make em out to be a bad-ass with no future. BUT in fact you’re so frekin’ intelligent and hot with a hint of dorkiness and it’s a perfect combo. You’re like a breath of fresh air, that makes people want to know more. For me? I’d definitely run away with you because Aquas tend to have such a different outlook in life, it’s attractive. You’re the type of people I dream about travelling the world with. You’re just so exciting and not everything has to be dead blank serious, you just go you’re way and it’s fairly admirable. I love you so much. If you’re an Aqua hit me up ;)
Pisces: Little weirdos with zest and so much spirit for life. You’re kind of like a run on the edge of a sun lit lake. You’re so full of love and life, you keep everyone together because you’re the glue of almost every group you’re in. People love hanging out with you, it’s calming and you’re just so easy to get along with! One of my besties are a pisces and I can literally talk to her about anything I’m going through and she knows exactly how to make me feel better because she’s just so warm and loving. Guys you’re all gifted and any Pisces lemme know who you are because I like hugs from Pisces you cute teddies!
