I really don’t see how Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump wanting to attend daddy Trump’s parties on Shabbat counts as pikuach nefesh
Like, if you wanna say, this is certainly an extraordinary situation, how many times does your father become president, I want to be there at the afterparty, and you decide that’s worth riding in a car on Shabbat, that’s really up to you and I can’t say I wouldn’t make the same exception
But it seems really lazy to claim it’s a matter of life and death, pick a side, either refuse to transgress the rules out of principle or come out and say this is just too important to miss
They picked a Chabad synagogue, did a Chabad rabbi really ok this? Doubt it (that’s something I’ve been thinking about, too, I know it’s supposedly the only orthodox synagogue near them, but I don’t buy that it wasn’t for political reasons as well, to purposely pick a group that builds its whole brand around being influential and visible)
Seems like a political issue to me, not a theological one. Can’t blatantly violate Shabbat when everyone’s watching you, have to make an appearance at the country’s biggest political function, can’t let the goyim think you’re putting Judaism ahead of helping run the country…I don’t envy them that situation, but it still irritates me to lamely say “well it’s probably pikuach nefesh or something idk” like we’re playing fast and loose with some definitions here so you can go to a party and everyone knows you only get that exemption because you’re famous now and it has nothing to do with halacha
My delusional heart hoping that maybe they celebrated with C 😔 But seriously tho girls just disappeared after the show. We all know lauren and dinah are sucker for afterpartys, they weren't there and it was their last award for wfh soo why not
I think that’s not gonna happen any time soon… Sadly
I’m sure there’s a bunch of Yuri on Ice x ballroom AUs out there but here’s another hahaha. I’ve been wondering about it since the two of them danced together at that afterparty, so it was a lot of fun to sketch them out ;D
A bit afraid to continue it any further though because while I EXTREMELY love any form of dance, I don’t know a whole lot about dancesport (just researching it for an evening got me dizzy lol). I just don’t want to draw it wrong, considering how important posture/line/expression/etc is.
But anyways! Bottom two pics are some sketch/character info. I like to think Yuuri focused mostly on standard, but is secretly quite good at latin (revealed in a drunken moment perhaps heh). And Victor has had his vain streak bumped up a notch, but is no less skilled. I was on the fence about him being injured but I felt it might humanize him a bit more to have him be in the middle of some sort of personal hardship. Ahhh still in yoi withdrawal oh well…
*EDIT* I forgot to mention I totally drew this while thinking about Inoue Satou’s 10 Dance manga! If you haven’t read that (it IS bl though), please go read it. It is amazing!
i really like the concept of the afterparty. Like, the public partying is over, now it’s just us, the cool people, the core, going to someone’s apartment and sipping at alcohol while we have some intimate conversations and the sun rises. I love it. it’s so calming. afterparties are on another dimension and it’s a chill dimension.
BECAUSE I COULD NOT GET OVER MY MC’S LACK OF PARTICIPATION AND SAY DURING THAT PARTY….I HAD TO DRAW THIS EXTENDED ENDING. I NEEDED TO LET OUT THE EMOTIONS TO MOVE ONE!! AND IT WORKED!! I FEEL SO LIBERATED!! May do a proposal and wedding….
