I JUST WANTED TO SAY THAT THE REASON WE DON’T GET THE NO HOMO JOKES AND TEASING ABOUT YUURI AND VIKTOR KISSING AND EVEN SLIGHT “BUT YOU’RE BOTH GUYS” BS IN YURI!!! ON ICE IS BECAUSE KUBO-SENSEI LEGITIMATELY WANTED TO CREATE A WORLD IN WHICH NONE OF THAT EXISTED. DISCRIMINATION TOWARD WHO YOU LOVE DOESN’T EXIST.
IN THE WORLD OF YURI!!! ON ICE, THERE ARE NO LAWS OR RULES ABOUT MEN LOVING MEN OR MEN WEARING FLOWER CROWNS OR BEING OPENLY GAY. PEOPLE CAN DO AS THEY PLEASE. LGBTQA+ ISN’T A LABEL. YOU AREN’T SEPARATED FROM OTHER GROUPS BASED ON WHO YOU ARE ATTRACTED TO OR FALL IN LOVE WITH. EVERYTHING EVERYONE DOES IS CONSIDERED ACCEPTABLE AND HEALTHY AND normal.
WHICH MEANS VIKTOR AND YUURI WON’T HAVE TO FIGHT MARRIAGE LAWS BECAUSE WHATEVER COUNTRY THEY GO TO WILL ALLOW THEM TO MARRY.
when guzma tried to catch a nihilego, he just ran at it. so… does that mean he was just going to wrestle it to the ground and force it into a ball? is that just how he catches pokemon?
because while i can see someone doing that to get a wimpod… does that mean he dive-tackled a spinarak? does. does he even bother weakening the pokemon. does he just dive-tackle them until they surrender? because that sounds like something he’d do.
just imagine him finding a scyther and being like “okay that’s a bug with arm scythes i fucking want it” and you think he’s gonna send out golisopod to weaken it but no, he just runs at the scyther and fucking rugby tackles it to the ground. and the scyther is just like “ARCEUS FUCKING CHRIST WHAT THE HELL I’LL GET IN THE BALL I’LL GET IN THE BALL!”
it’s a flawless strategy but no one else in team skull can get it to work.
I don’t want to rain on anybody’s fandom fun but I find it kind of hilarious everybody pegs Keith as resident conspiracy theorist when like
Keith, in episode 1: So I just felt weirdly compelled to go out in the desert and look for something, found carvings that led me to anticipate some kind of arrival and I knew I had to go meet whoever was coming and get them away from the Garrison. It turned out aliens were involved but that’s really not that important? Also I’ll just talk about it like all of this is normal and be mildly put-out when someone makes fun of me. Weird pseudo-clairvoyance is just a normal thing that happens to everyone, right?
Pidge, in episode 1: I infiltrated a government space exploration program by falsifying my identity and secretly built equipment to listen for alien radio chatter which I regularly sneak out of the dorms to do. I did this because said government space program is definitely lying to me about the disappearance of this space mission and the one time I told someone about it, I specifically told them that the world as they knew it was about to change.
I mean, in general, Pidge puts an incredibly high priority about finding information and getting answers- the whole green paladin ‘inquisitive’ thing- while Keith is much more that he has a vague, but strong-held feeling of something that’s right and he’ll pursue that single goal, details don’t matter to him nearly as much. People talk about his “conspiracy chart” but all he really had there was pictures of the carvings and a map where he seems to have narrowed down exactly where the energy was coming from.
So I guess, proposed alternative measure: Pidge who is determined to chase weird stuff and Keith who is just. the incredibly ride-or-die friend about it.
Pidge opens the door to Keith’s room at 3AM “KEITH C’MON I THINK THIS PLANET HAS A GHOST”
Keith is like. half awake and already putting on his jacket. “jeez, okay, let me find where we left the camera last time.”
