1. His musicality and artistry. It was noted both by Yuuri (himself) and Viktor that his PCS score often makes up for his TES. Considering his background with dancing, this should be a given. Add the fact that he prefers ballet for his training off ice (EP2 & EP3), plenty of credits should be given to Minako.

2. His amazing spins and step sequences. Yuri noticed that during the GPF in Sochi. Obviously, Celestino is his coach at that time. He probably learned those fancy footwork from him or another before going to the US.

3. He can land a TRIPLE AXEL consistently. Axel is the most difficult jump but Minami and the skating commentators in the series have implied that the triple axel is one of Yuuri’s signature moves. Minami kept waxing poetic about it and, fanboy that he is, trained hard to be able to execute it (EP5). Commentators have mentioned that the triple axel is ”one of his [Yuuri’s] favorites” (EP7). They wouldn’t say that if Yuuri is crap at it. They will only take note of it if Yuuri had been consistently excellent at it… which he is. If you watch his skating programs in the series again, you’ll see that Yuuri flubbed the triple axel only twice: in Sochi (the still image flashback) & in the Cup of China FS. The rest, both in his SP and FS, were perfect.

Now, sorry for being so whiny about this but I’ve developed a pet peeve turned berserk button with this after seeing too many fics that constantly undermines Yuuri’s skating abilities by writing him as incapable of landing triples before Viktor AND/OR when Viktor is absent (which is infinitely worse). I had to let this out:

Yuuri is not that helpless. If he’s that piss poor with triple jumps, then he would have never made it into the GPF in Sochi. Also, Celestino would have been a terrible coach if he didn’t train Yuuri to land triples. Obviously, the man is not a terrible coach since he managed to take Yuuri AND Phichit all the way to the GPF. Lastly, Yuuri is a prideful person so if he couldn’t land triples, then he would have trained day in and day out to perfect them because he would never dare show his face to the world if he’s so bad at it. So stop crediting Viktor with Yuuri’s ability to land triple jumps. He’s not responsible for them.

4. He can do a quad toe loop. He had to learn and use at least one damn quad to have reached GPF Sochi. From his scores, we can guess that he landed it better too compared with his triples despite being mentally & emotionally compromised as well. Kudos to Celestino’s training.

CONCLUSION: Yuuri is not a shitty skater before Viktor AND when Viktor is absent. All of Yuuri’s skills should not be attributed to Viktor’s coaching AND  presence alone because Minako, Celestino, and others helped him with some of those. Most importantly, YUURI WORKED FUCKING HARD FOR ALL OF HIS ABILITIES. Giving Viktor, and only Viktor, full credits for that reduces his agency and relationships with other characters.

  • Levi in AU fanfics: Rich, probably. Most likely a business man. Sometimes a cop or a mafia boss. Probably owns a store or something. Rides a motorcycle or a fancy sports car. Has a big house. He's just a rank just under Erwin's CEO status or something. Maybe he's some kind of artist or writer. A college or high school professor.
  • Levi in Isayama's AU: A janitor, naturally.

I have no real idea anymore of whats going on with the outfit department anymore tbh… But i have been thinking about it more after the release of the cd cover 

The two outfits Victor is wearing is the “stay Close to me” one from ep one and the Military one I believe

(The above image could also just be their past outfits considering the one Yuri’s wearing is the last years as well)

ALSO, Victors actually already worn this outfit 

Its also the one that is used in marketing 


YS, you would think they would use the outfit in the actual episodes if it shows up in merchandising (BUT ALSO, Yurio has a blue outfits thats in a lot of his merchandising/stock imaging but his final outfit is red ((Shown in the Canada clip but i could be wrong))) 

So, maybe he would be wearing his second outfit seen on the website?  

Either way, If they do skate together, I hope they have fancy outfits (ALSO TO NOTE, the first episode we see the intro clip of Victor skating “Stay Close to Me” to Yuri in the abandoned/empty skating rink and he’s just wearing a black V neck so maybe the highly anticipated dance sequence will just be them in their casual clothes?)

I guess it would be a nice show of domestic if they were wearing their normal clothes? But I also want fancy clothes so I’m in quite the internal struggle 

On the other side, I don’t know where they would actually fit anymore skating scenes with Victor. Considering how many skaters they have to go through for the Grand Prix (Finger crossed for episode 10 or the end of 12 then!) 

I feel like seeing Victor skate again would be pretty awesome considering we haven’t seen any skating done by him for the last 5 ish episodes 


I SURE hope Victor and Yuri dance in outfits that cool


When you think about which animal you least want to show up when you’re wounded and helpless, lions pretty much take the cake (and your face, and then some limbs, because they’re lions). They’re 300-pound, 6-foot-long cats that look at you as nothing more than a delicacy at a fancy lion restaurant they like to call Africa. But as we’ve noted before, lions also have a softer kitten center that leads them to care for some unlikely creatures.

In this instance, it’s a 12-year-old Kenyan girl who had been missing for a week. It turned out that she had been abducted by several men who were trying to force her to marry one of them (because who has time for romance?). But when the authorities finally found her, she was alone, her kidnappers having fled. Instead, she was surrounded by three lions that had scared away, and hopefully maimed, her captors.

The police said that the lions had been guarding her for about half a day when they got there, not only abstaining from munching on the little girl themselves, but also making sure that nothing else got close to her. When the police finally arrived, the lions departed, perhaps roaring “Everybody gets one” as they left.

Experts say that the lions might have been reacting to the girl’s tears as if they were the mews of a lion cub, but we all know the real reason: The little girl is a Beastmaster.

7 True Stories of Animals Rescuing People from Certain Death

Witching on a budget: 5 Items for a beginner witch.

When you start out in witchcraft you don’t need to have a a large amount of items, but it can be handy to have a few items to get you started, They wont necessarily make you feel ‘witchy’ but they might help a little. 

I have already written a post about my most recommended crystals.

Ok so lets get started…

1) A Journal/Book of Shadows: this does not have to be fancy, nor does it have to be organised. It could be a beautiful leather bound book or a lined notebook or even a 3 ring binder with note paper slotted inside, it really don’t matter this book just has to work for you. It is a place to document your journey, write your knowledge,beliefs, spells (if you want to) and notes. Having a book like this will really help you grow as a person and as a pagan or witch. 

2) A clear quartz crystal: If you are going to have just one crystal I recommend this one. This is the most versatile crystal, clear quartz can charged for almost anything and can also be used to stand in for any other crystal. 

3) Salt: Salt is amazing, it can be used to cleanse spaces, keeping entity’s at bay, creating a circle. It is amazingly versatile and can be used as a solid or diluted into water (you could add herbs too) which makes salt even more versatile. 

4) Candles: Candles come in all shapes, sizes and colours. I personally have so many especially in white (as it can be used for everything). Some things candles can be used for…other than light…are, Candle magic, Helping with spells, Rituals, Divination, Meditation and relaxation. 

5) Incense: Ok so this isn’t essential but it can be fun, and differently makes me feel more like a witch, You can get so many different scents too. That being said there are a few practical uses for incense; Helping with meditation, relaxation, creating atmosphere for spells and rituals. 

So there are my opinions for things that could help you get started as a beginner witch, best bit they are all budget friendly too. 

I just love the au that when you write on your skin it shows up on your partners skin like imagine Hamilton writing notes upon notes all up this arms and Jefferson being like yo what the fuck and Jefferson always writes dates of things but Hamilton has so many scribbles that he can never make anything out. Then imagine that one day Jefferson gets sick of never meeting this stranger so he writes “*name of restaurant* 6pm tonight. Come” and that’s how they finally meet, Jefferson looking his best outside a fancy French restaurant and Hamilton running fifteen minutes late, hair flying in every direction, buttons undone, sleeves rolled up at different lengths, and notes still covering his arms except for one patch on his wrist left bare. Their eyes meet and Thomas just falls in love instantly

idealistic classics student aesthetic on Tumblr: classy and refined, impeccable style, can translate Homer and Vergil at the bat of one eye, smokes incredibly expensive cigarettes and owns several marble busts, incredibly organized notes with fancy gothic style handwriting, basically a TSH character without the murder

italian liceo classico student gothic: has worn the same hoodie for the last 30 days, constantly squints when they’re outside bc they’re unused to sunlight, goes out like once every 6 months and gets blackout drunk on cheap vodka when they do, their only free time is that spent on the toilet or in the shower, tira giù le madonne over Cicero’s writing, probably doesn’t remember one (1) grammar rule from year 1 but will be able to quote Títyre tú patuláe and Ἄνδρα μοι ἔννεπε, Μοῦσα by heart for the rest of their life

Date Night with Wilson - Peter Parker (Spider Man) Imagine (ft. Deadpool)

REQUESTED: Nah, I just really wanted to write this because I watched TASM and TASM 2 today and Andrew Garfield is just fine af tbh. Also, Deadpool.

WARNINGS: Swearing (but other than that just cute af)

SUMMARY: Wade wants to go on a double date with Vanessa, but he needs the double date. Enter Peter Parker and you. 

NOTES: Hope you enjoy guys, this is coming off the back of a whole tonne of French homework. Meh.

In Media Res | Jungkook

Scenario: I’m a photographer for this big fancy wedding so I’m going around and snapping pictures of everyone and oh wow you are so incredibly otherworldly in your beauty and oops turns out I end up taking more pictures of you than the happy couple
Genre: Fluff
Word Count: 8,592
Author’s Note: Jayesslee’s Sonia Lee & Andy Yang’s wedding video and the wedding from (500) Days of Summer both played a big inspiration for the making of this story. I just love outdoor weddings okay. In Media Res is latin for “in the middle of things”.


There’s something about a camera that has always fascinated Jungkook, as well as the mechanics that come along with owning and being able to operate one at his will. The idea that he could physically capture a moment or a memory within the confines of a tangible object, a place where he knows the information inside could not slip or fade away (unlike the thoughts and visions that more often than not slipped through his mind like grains of sand passing through his fingers) gave Jungkook a sense of reassurance.

For the longest time, Jungkook found calm and chased the peace that came with trying to capture an image. His computer and memory drive are filled with scenic shots, candid snapshots caught perfectly in time. He likes the idea of needing to be fast enough to realize when something good, something breathtaking and so completely irreplaceable was about to happen—and having to be quick enough, sharp enough, to catch that moment on camera.

So when Seokjin-hyung requests Jungkook to be the official photographer for his upcoming wedding—Jungkook is ecstatic that the older man would even consider Jungkook in the first place. Weddings are beautiful, timeless, and (most of the time) only happen once during the course of someone’s life. A wedding is filled with memories just waiting to be captured.

So Jungkook answers in the way he feels most equipped to react: “I would love to hyung.”

You shook with fear as you walked through the hotel you were staying at. It was cheap, fancy, and the people didn’t care what you did, so the boys decided to stick with it. Hotel Cortez was the name of it. These hallways seemed endless, but you finally made it to the elevator. The metal box dinged, the only sound on the floor. You stepped inside and pressed the floor number you wanted to go to. Down, down, down until the box came to a halt, but the doors didn’t open. There was no calming ding, no people waiting to get in, just you.

“W-what’s going on?” You stuttered, banging on the door. “What happened?”

“Miss, the elevator seemed to have stopped. We’ve called the fire department, they’ll be here soon to get you out.” Why did you think this was a good idea? You sighed and leaned against a wall, pulling out your phone. If you were going to be stuck here, may as well entertain yourself. The only problem was it was dead. Damn.

Hey, it could be worse! It could be-

You shrieked as the power went out. You had achluophobia, or a fear of the dark. Tears cascaded down your face, hiccups and sobs escaping your mouth. You slid down the wall and hugged your knees, trying to be brave like Sam and Dean but…

You weren’t. They’ve been to hell and back, stopped the apocalypse, faced just about everything, and here you were, crying because of the lack of light.

“Please j-just get m-m-me out of here!” You sobbed, but no one heard your pleas. The lady was lying when she said she called the fire department, truth was, you would be the Countess’ next meal. You didn’t know that, however, so you did what you thought best. “X-Crowley!” You cried.

“You called, love?” The stocky man appeared next to you. “Why’s it so dark?”

“E-elevator, power, ph-phone dead!” You clutched his jacket and buried your face in the crook of his neck. He jumped a bit at the sudden invading contact, but wrapped his arms around you all the same.

“Hush love, you’ll be okay. There’s nothing here to get you.” Well, not yet. He stroked your hair and continued to talk to you about everything, trying to get your mind off the situation. This didn’t help much, though. Every sound seemed like something come to snatch you away, every movement was the monsters that took refuge in the dark. Crowley would have flashed you out of there the minute he got there, but how would that look when they finally came to rescue her?

It had been almost an hour since (Y/n) had become trapped in this metal death trap. Crowley had stopped talking long ago, and her sobs were replaced with soft breaths. She had fallen asleep, curled up in his lap. The dark suited man had called Sam and Dean to inform them of the situation, and they agreed that it was best to get out of the hotel. They had gone to a nearby motel.

“I have a feeling that the bloody fire department was in fact, not informed.” He muttered, taking the girl in his arms. She groaned in her sleep and made an attempt to move closer to him. Crowley vanished from the elevator and reappeared in his mansion, setting her on the bed. The boys had gone on a hunt, and there was no way he would leave her alone. He sat next to her sleeping form, letting his hand ghost over hers, his lips brushing over her forehead. “No one can hurt you now, darling.” He whispered as he left the room.

(Y/n) groggily awoke. She looked around at the unfamiliar room. The last thing she remembered was Crowley telling her about the new litter of hell hounds. She moved to the bathroom mirror and ran a hand through her hair, contently sighing. As long as she was out of that elevator, she didn’t care where she was. The door was slightly ajar, so she decided to explore. Her fingers grasped different metal knobs, eyes taking in each room. The last place she checked had large doors that didn’t open easily. When she finally did get them open, she slid in the room. Crowley say on his throne, scrolling through his phone.

“So this is where you live?” You called. He glanced up at you before approaching the spot where you stood.

“Yes, like it?” He smirked. You nodded and leaned in so you were practically nose to nose.

“I do. I’m more curious as to why I’m here, though.” He began to explain what had happened, and you nodded in understanding. “Thanks. For helping me, I mean. Not a lot of people would do that.”

“Not a lot of people care for you like I do, love.” He shrugged. You laughed and pulled him into a kiss. “Love it when you take control.”

“Shut up and kiss me again.” You breathed.

In love with this new bookstore, can’t wait to pick a book out of this treasury! The store has really new and good titels, and i’m in love with the fancy notebooks… I always feel super excited when planning to buy a (note)book or other stationary. My bank account isnt safe anymore

SU Art theft!

I thought I’d put this out there in the SU tag, since the re-post of my Fancy gems drawing has reached 10,000 notes! The original post- HERE- was re-posted without credit by lper21. I sent them a message, then reported them. I’ve done everything I can- but I’d like people to know that this post going around is theft. This person has also stolen other peices of my art, all of which I’ve worked really hard on, and I’d love to get the credit for.

This user is in no way a bad person, so please don’t harass them or anything. I’d just like people to know when they’re reblogging stolen art!

Signal boosts are much appreciated!! Thank you! :)
