#7 : Is there anything you used to like but can’t stand now ?

The first thing that comes to my mind is Sansa. I really liked her at the beginning. But then came her stans, Loads of so-called metas blossomed onto my dash, saying how incredibly strong and pure and clever etc… she is, to the point of not being remotely like the real Sansa, and how she will get everything in the end (ignoring perfectly valid points showing she won’t), and I became really fed-up with her. It’s not as bad as it used to be though. There was a moment I really couldn’t stand her but now it’s better. 

#20 : What is the purest ship in the fandom ?

I may be biased, but I’m gonna go with Jonrya. These two love each other with unconditional love. I really can’t see any problematic issues between them. They accept each other as they are, not trying to twist into people they’re not to better fit criterias. They only want to make the other one happy (hence Jon giving Arya Needle, or Arya putting Wylla in a corner of her mind so she can tell Jon about his “mother”). Jon was even ready to part with Arya, to send her in Braavos so Stannis couldn’t use her as a political pawn. Even the incest part is negated by the fact they are in truth cousins.

Otherwise I think Gendrya and Jaime and Brienne (dunno the ship name) are quite cute too, even if I don’t especially ship them.

#22 : Popular character you hate ?

There aren’t really any popular character I hate. I don’t hate Sansa - only the twisted, fanon version they made of her. There is a number of them I’m pretty indifferent to (Theon or Tyrion for example). I guess the character who would come closest to hate would be Arianne ? (see here why)

#23 : Unpopular character you love ?

I really like Edric Dayne. He’s such an underrated character. He’s sweet and brave and caring. Unfortunately he comes between Arya and Gendry, so I think that’s the reason why he’s not more well-liked. 

Also I like badass grandpa Brynden Tully (Cat’s uncle). I can’t wait to see more of him !

Thank you for asking !

1. What OTPs in your fandom(s) do you just not get?

Well we all know my major NOTP in the TWD fandom so I won’t even get into that lmaooooo. But okay there were honestly people in the XF fandom who shipped Mulder and Krycek and I was just like HAVE Y’ALL LOST YOUR GODDAMN MINDS? Dude kills Mulder’s father, totally screws with Skinner, and is trying to kill Scully and their baby but yeah let’s ship him with Mulder because what, they’re both hot white dudes? Ugh, okay people. Get awayyyyy from me. Also I absolutely ship and adore Buffy and Spike but I do get exhausted when people try to suggest that she was in love with him in canon. Like, nope. That was the entire point of that storyline, sigh.

7. I already did this one!

13. (I’m doing this one since I already did 14 lol.) Unpopular opinion about XXX character?

I’m gonna go with Morgan, because I see so many people in the fandom hating on him even now. And yeah, because of the way this damn show is written, I have a lot of issues with what happened between him and Carol in ‘Start to Finish.’ HOWEVER. I love them now (as friends guys, omg I do not ship them). I love how he calls her on her bullshit and how she is just such a beautiful caring cupcake that she can’t watch him self destruct without wanting to help. I hope they keep being friends forever and ever tbh.

20. What is the purest ship in the fandom?

Caryl. It’s Caryl, okay? I mean if you hate on this ship, honestly you just need to say that you’re an ageist piece of shit and go. There is no more compelling love story than these two people who have been so relentlessly beaten down for the entirety of their lives discovering the one other person who loves them perfectly and completely. WHY CAN’T WE HAVE NICE THINGS GIMPLE YOU MOLDING MUSHROOM?

(for @yoituuri and @starryfeathers. I accidentally deleted this whole thing once so hopefully it doesn’t happen again/ it’s not rushed. I hope you enjoy you two, and anybody else who reads this!)

I made a post about my favorite boy Victor not too long ago, and I mentioned a shot in passing that I really loved, but because it wasn’t the focus of the post, I didn’t go into it. I would like to now. Here it is:

This is the first glimpse of Victor we get within canon. Well, beyond the opening sequence with Yuuri watching Victor skate as they grow up but I think we can all agree that was outside of canon and can be discarded here.


It’s a damn good first glimpse. As you’ve probably already noticed, Victor’s eyes are covered. Deliberately. Dude fuckin does a twirl and the camera is framed in such a way that we don’t get to see his eyes until he looks up for the cameras. That’s an interesting touch, for several reasons. 

First, when a character’s eyes are not visible, it implies something is hidden within them. A trait, motivation, true emotions, etc etc. 

Secondly, the fact that we can’t see Victor’s eyes until he turns to the cameras with that fake-ass media smile. In this scene, we’re being treated as the public. Victor is immediately hiding from us and the rest of the world. You know, something he does all the goddamn time.

Victor is scarily good at masking. For those who don’t know what I mean, masking is the act of hiding one’s true personality, desires, and/or emotions to conform to society. I mask due to past trauma. Victor masks to meet public expectation. 

You’ve probably guessed already that masking is incredibly unhealthy–it’s repression, after all. If it gets bad enough, you’ll stop knowing where masking ends and you begin. Sometimes it takes me months to figure out how I feel about something because I need to sort through so many layers of masking and anxiety and doubt. It’s really difficult sometimes. 

We see tons of lovely examples of Victor masking throughout the show. Here are a few off the top of my head: 

(^absolutely terrified vitya trying to be smooth)

(^living up to his press image)

(^so incredibly upset on so many levels but he doesn’t dare show it)

(^pissed enough that yuuri picks up on it. and then acts dishonestly w/ yuuri by trying to come off as pleasant)

(i love that yuuri is comfortable enough by this point to call victor out on his bs. if you’re gonna get mad, get mad) 

(you can actually see Victor’s hand shake if you watch the scene. boy is so pissed and he’s holding it in)

etc etc. 

Victor is actually incredibly reserved in all the emotions he shows, especially if it’s anger or sadness. For most of the series, he only lets himself go in front of Yuuri or alone. Victor hides from himself, he hides from Yuuri, and it helps no one in the end. 

The beach sequence, actually, is important to this idea too. As we know, Victor asks Yuuri what he wants them to be. 

And then he lists off all these options before essentially asking to go out with him, but in a way that says he’s too scared to do it outright.

Now, this is partially to gauge Yuuri’s feelings towards him, but it’s also highly revealing of Victor’s self-worth. He’s willing to put on any mask, any persona to be with Yuuri. Yuuri, of course, doesn’t want this at all. 


And looking at Victor’s reaction (guarded surprise)

This may be the first time Victor has been asked to just be himself. 

So if Victor was a world champion at 16

(boy is 15-16 in that article)

He must have been skating for a while beforehand. We can probably approximate by saying he started competitions around the time Yuri did, which I estimate to be about 12-13. However, Victor does say this 

And if we’re to believe him, 27-20=7, and therefore something happened at the age of 7 to force Victor into backing away from others and working himself to the bone. Uhm, wow. I don’t know how accurate it is to say that, but regardless, he’s been in the public eye for a long fuckin time. 

Victor has spent this long fuckin time building an image: elegance, confidence, charming yet untouchable. The perfect playboy, in a way. This is the person he presents to the public. I think he’s been masking like this for so long he forgot that this isn’t who he is–Victor has the ability to be all those things, but it’s not who he is. Victor is excitable, bubbly, caring, vulnerable, depressed, lonely, hardworking…Yuuri, by asking Victor to be himself, released a metaphorical floodgate on Victor’s emotions. He’s broken that carefully crafted persona. 

Victor is now publicly goofy and affectionate

(i love how he hides his face a little here…how cute and shy while showing off that he’s yuuri’s)

And can drop his composure comfortably 

(also vitya always wears gloves to competitions until they get the rings and then victor keeps the gloves off completely :v) 

I love that Victor’s relationship with Yuuri has allowed him to find himself again, and peel away those masks to live and breathe and love as he was always meant to. 

i love the student athlete memes but on a more serious note why are student athletes so fucking catered to in the public school system. they’re the ones that are always allowed to be late to class or talk back to the teachers with no repercussions. they’re the only fucking reason why my school opens at 7:20 in the morning, just so they can have more time in the afternoon to do their things. they also practically get handed scholarships for kicking a goddamn ball across a field while the rest of us have to work ourselves to the bone to get a measly thousand bucks. its annouinh
