(Translation: I’m dying of cuteness overload right now. This is probably the closest we’ll ever get to a true RinSaku confession moment, but this is good enough for my shipping heart. Thank you, anime scriptwriters.)

It was an old custom, that when there was to be a sacrifice all the free men should come to the spot where the temple stood and bring with them all that they required while the festival of the sacrifice lasted. To this festival all the men brought ale with them; and all kinds of cattle, as well as horses, were slaughtered, and all the blood that came from them was called “hlaut”, and the vessels in which it was collected were called hlaut-vessels. Hlaut-staves were made, like sprinkling brushes, with which the whole of the altars and the temple walls, both outside and inside, were sprinkled over, and also the people were sprinkled with the blood; but the flesh was boiled into savoury meat for those present. The fire was in the middle of the floor of the temple, and over it hung the kettles, and the full goblets were handed across the fire; and he who made the feast, and was a chief, blessed the full goblets, and all the meat of the sacrifice.
I hate how the 2012-2013 tone of tumblr regarding gay ships (aka the yaoi, ‘sin baby’ shipping culture) has given birth to the idea that gay ships are exclusively liked by fetishizing cishets. The constant degradation of healthy and complex mlm ships to “just fanservice for straight tumblr girls” really hurts actual mlm who are desperate for representation, and vice versa for wlw. If the staff/casts of shows and movies could stop acting as though this is the case, and in turn would stop mocking mlm/wlw ships, that’d be fantastic.
