Trigger Warnings: brief mentions of kink and kinkshaming

Summary: When Otabek Altin’s employer discovers his diploma is fake, he loses his job as a pharmacist and enrolls in Detroit Community College. Forced to take an advanced-level French literature class taught by the deranged Monsieur Lee, Otabek starts a study group in order to impress his crush and makes the friends he never knew he wanted in the process.

Yuri Plisetsky is the pint-sized art student with the brilliant wit and bad attitude who immediately captures Otabek’s attention. Though Yuri rejects Otabek’s advances at their first meeting, together they survive a French professor obsessed with ennui, a psychology professor fixated on sex, and study group shenanigans. As the semester progresses, Yuri and Otabek slowly draw closer. Are they really just friends, or could they be something more?

Diamonds might be blinding in their beauty, but they were also the hardest and sharpest gems in the world. They could cut you or grind you down, smash and slice you apart. Malcolm, deranged with love, had not thought of that. But Julian could think of nothing else.
—  Julian; Lord of Shadows

can I just say as a brief aside how much I love Hux. He looks like the deranged personification of the most unhinged British foreign policy choices circa 1890. He looks like he should be wearing a pith helmet and screaming about the colonials. He looks like he should be in the jungle trying to locate Kurtz and hating every second of it. He looks like he is Kurtz. He looks like a boy they left behind on the island at the end of Lord of the Flies because he cannibalized Piggy. He looks like he should be wearing jodhpurs and puttees and using his manservant as a human mounting block to get on his camel. He looks like a Rudyard Kipling short story. He looks like he thinks World War I is going to be over before Christmas. He looks like he might inherit a small barony and will immediately evict the tenants. He looks like he engineered an elaborate plot to get another boy expelled from Eton because he snapped him in the ass with a towel in the locker room one time, He looks like murdered a commoner for saying Queen Victoria was fucking John Brown. 

Turn of the century lookin ass motherfucker. I love him. 

arguably the most amusing thing I’ve written today:

“It turned out that human young had a ritual that involved creating effigies out of frozen condensation and then granting them names. Whether this was purely symbolic or whether some diabolical human power would later bring these effigies to life to do their organic masters’ bidding remained to be seen.”

Things that i loved in season 4
  • Hiccup quoting Dagur
  • Heather joining the berserkers. 
  • The whole of “The longest day”
  • Heather and Dagur becoming proper siblings.
  • Hiccup calling Dagur ‘brother’.
  • Mala and Throk.
  • More plot development and less filler episodes. I felt every single one had some connection to the big battle instead of some just being episodes like “reign of the fireworms” 
  • The gang’s group hug at the end.
  • The Triple Stryke being back.
  • Stoick and hiccup scenes.
  • And finally of course all of the hiccstrid moments we got so many and i’m so so so happy.

A sudden thought about a specific minor character

Okay, it’s not something huge in this season of RTTE, but it just pops up, so I decide to write a post about…

This guy. Savage.

When I went through the season 5 and found no description of Savage anywhere, I thought the character simply didn’t exist on the screen anymore, just like Alvin. 

However, when he appears again in this season, I’m kind of surprised, because I suddenly realize that:

He has worked for Alvin, who turned good at the end of season 2;

He has worked for Dagur, who turned good at the end of season 4;

He has also worked (sort of) for Ryker and hence Viggo, who both supposedly die at the end of season 6;

And now he works as a bounty hunter.

Which means that, this guy has worked for the Outcasts, the Berserkers and the Dragon Hunters, all the enemies that Hiccup and Berk have ever encountered.

Also, as a character debuted in the Riders of Berk, he REMAINS BAD THROUGHOUT ALL SIX SEASONS. None of the other villains are able to stay that long.

Savage, you want to be a Viking of legend? You already are.
