I just love this man

I know everyone and their mother seems to be screaming about this show right now - so for those of you who don’t watch it, I’m sorry, just bear with me a sec. I’ll try to keep things vague for those of you avoiding spoilers.

But you know the one thing about Yuri on Ice that gets me? 

How normalized everything is. 

For example, that moment in Episode 7 where Viktor very openly expresses his affection for Yuuri in front of an international audience? I was honestly expecting shit to hit the fan in Episode 8, at least to some degree. Here is a male celebrity (a Russian male celebrity, for that matter) at the peak of his career and with a large fan base… some of whom blame Yuuri for taking him away from them in order to coach. I was sort of dreading the backlash that they might face as a result or at the very least the judgmental glances they may get from assholes who don’t approve. The figure skating community alone is known to be pretty damn hostile toward even the mere suggestion of homosexuality.

Except they didn’t. The story just continued.

And now in Episode 10… that moment in the restaurant where the congratulatory announcement was made after a misunderstanding? No one questioned it. No one second-guessed it. A whole restaurant of strangers clapped for two people they presumably did not know but could clearly see sitting at the table and no one batted an eye at the fact that they were applauding for two men. 

While there is definitely a need in fiction to explore the struggle, the backlash, the hatred and homophobia that same-sex couples face… when I think about it, that narrative has dominated almost every piece of LGBTQ fiction I’ve personally encountered, to the point where I feel like it can overshadow the relationship at the center of it all.

But in this show, it doesn’t. You just get to enjoy them for who they are and how they care about one another and celebrate each step they take along the way.

And that is so fucking refreshing.

PokeMoana

I just love this movie, and considering I’ve Pokemon’d a bunch of stuff before, I figured why not give Moana the same treatment? (And it kinda gives those Sun and Moon vibes y’know?)

HAPPY FUCKING BIRTHDAY IAN SOMERHALDER!!!! ❤️😘🎉

He is such a bright light in this world. I appreciate his existence so fucking much. Not only is he extremely sweet and loving and perfect, he really cares about his fans and the environment and I just love him so much. He’s my dream man and I hope he has an amazing birthday cause he deserves it.

“Tonight, Ladies and Gentlemen, Joe White will have as his guest on this provocative hour of conversation, an American Nazi. A man who has claimed to have spent last weekend in a flying saucer, and a young lady whose remarkably successful first novel has created a storm of controversy.”

Well, Victor sure does have something to tell the kids about how he and Yuuri met 😏

“Did you know back when we were still skating, there was a party and your father got absolutely wasted, that he started a dance-off. Who would’ve known he got some groove in him. Most of the people joined even your Uncle Yurio! He even pole-danced with your Uncle Chris in his briefs, can you believe it?! I danced with him too, of course, and…your father was so beautiful. We were having the night of our lives! Then he drunkenly asked me to be his coach if he won the dance-off. His expression was so cute! He said, “Be my coach! Victor!” and hugged me so tight! That is when I fell in love with him. Who would’ve thought that I will fall in love with a drunken, flustered man who just danced the night away and asked me to be his coach? Well, I’m so glad I did!”

(surely he tells that story to them every night and their kids probably already memorized it lmao)
