Tell me our top five otp pairings and why you ship them. Please.
oh fuck i have….so many
nicklas backstrom and alex ovechkin - like literally if i ever write a fic and don’t explicitly say they’re together, know that it’s implied. like. soulmates. honest to god soulmates. i can’t get over how much i love the two of them and their connection
braden holtby and andre burakovsky - every fucking game burky clears the pucks out of the net during warmups and holts like taps him in thanks every time and i just. i’m so #thankful to that anon that suggested burky when i was looking for a sub for soft dom braden holtby bc it just fits so well. SO WELL.
tom wilson and mike latta - star crossed lovers. also i have such a weakness for the bro-y vibe and i think there was a fic like this but it’s actual canon: ‘hey if u do the dishes i’ll blow you’ like?? just. amazing.
Kaz: He always wears dark colors. Black, gray, sometimes white. Inej calls him “Mr. Monochromatic”. Somehow makes ripped jeans with a button-up look good. Seems to have an endless supply of scarves but wears only one coat whenever it’s remotely chilly. Doc Martens or manly black boots with little silver tips on the laces. Classiness meets goth. Rocks the closely-cropped-hair-on-the-sides look and always has some sort of vintage watch on his wrist. He likes to do this thing where he’ll be wearing all black and then a pop of white somewhere, like a single stripe across his shirt or an ivory scarf.
Inej: Queen of layering things, no matter the weather. In the cold it’s fawn colored leg warmers pulled over sheer black stockings, blouse collars peeking out over sweaters, thin hoodies underneath denim jackets. In the warmer months it’s loose, fluttery, cardigans over shapeless dresses or tasteful crop tops worn on top of spaghetti-strap tank tops. Kaz thinks her hair is the most beautiful thing in the world and it is, she always braids it prettily or leaves it down in waves. A fan of gold ear cuffs and ballerina flats. Can somehow mix badass with chic.
Jesper: Total skater boy. Unbuttoned flannels, graphic t-shirts, worn jeans, Timberlands. Also keeps his afro shaved on the sides but likes more volume on top. Leather bracelets with snap fastenings and hoodie-leather jacket hybrids. Wears those loose tank tops with the long arm holes. Owns at least ten “Very Gay” t-shirts, destroys gender stereotypes on a daily basis by wearing neon floral patterns and dress-like tops. Makes snapbacks and fedoras very, very, hot. Likes to balance sunglasses on the brim of his hats or always drape his headphones on himself, whether it’s his neck or his shoulder it looks like a cool accessory.
Wylan: Cutest person ever (and I don’t mean in a teddy bear way). He has that attractively nerdy aura going on, has a crap ton of galaxy-patterned and pride-flag bow ties. Sometimes allows Jesper to buy them matching t-shirts. Carries a leather satchel with loads of pins and iron-on badges of TV shows he likes. Wears Brogues that he found in a used shoe store or a pair of million year old Vans. Always has his sleeves rolled up, even when it’s freezing outside. Wears chunky hipster glasses that he’s always pushing farther up his nose. Beautifully tousled red-gold curls. Owns many wacky socks, his favorite pair is covered in algebraic equations. Paints his nails sometimes (usually green) and it’s always ridiculously neat.
Nina: Actually real-life supermodel 24/7. Looks good in anything and everything. Owns her curves and will wear any shade of red. Lipstick is always crimson, eyeliner is always on fleek. Her makeup in general is just flawless, and her brows are the definition of perfection. Can do anything with her hair, whether it’s two messy space buns or straightened. Wears a lot of 50′s cut dresses with brightly colored belts. Always tucking her shirt into her skirt. Will use her pretty acrylic nails to scratch you up if you mess with her group. Lace-up boots with a little or a lot of heel. Fitted pea coats that flare out at the waist and tie in a bow at the back. Can be intimidatingly gorgeous one day and doll-like the next.
Matthias: Probably the one who cares least about his appearance. The type of person who reaches into his closet and pulls out whatever. Nina drags him on shopping trips and makes sure he always walks out of the mall with some stuff of his own. Sweatshirts and varsity jackets. High-tops and never anything else. Somehow makes a man bun not nasty. Has one of those rope/survival bracelets with a tiny compass that he never takes off. Makes henley shirts hot and owns way too many white v-neck tees that frankly, all look exactly the same. Beanies are the only hat he’ll ever wear. Wears blue on days that he actually cares so that his eyes stand out. Jogger pants, the black ones with two white stripes down the sides.
I don’t get it. I don’t get the fact that Jon will marry a beautiful girl like Sansa or Dany, and never Arya because she is ugly. Jon loved Arya before she becomes/became beautiful. He loved her while she was dirty with messy hair and everything. He told her just like Ned that she was beautiful then too. Not because she looked like a model but because she has a beautiful soul and character. Jon didn’t care about Sansa’s beauty, he cared about Arya’s soul. And he loved her because of it. It reminds me of that song ‘beautiful soul’. Jon would love Arya regardless of her looks. And he will dislike mean girls regardless of their looks.
To the anon I just received and some others I have seen today. If Jon thinks someone is a bad person they can look like Cleopatra and still be ugly to him.
Interesting fact about Cleopatra is that she was probably not actually a supermodel, she apparently didn’t have a perfect nose and stuff like that. However she seduced emperors and they all thought of her as the most beautiful woman ever. Why? She was a good conversationalist and was probably an interesting woman. The things they and historians have written about her show that she was an interesting woman rather than actually the most beautiful woman on earth. And if you ever see her in a film she is always portrayed by someone that looks like a goddess. You know, she probably didn’t look like that? But that was still how those men saw her. And they would see that in her over someone that actually looked like that.
That woman went down in history as a fierce and well known pharaoh and one of the most beautiful women ever. And so she should. Not just women that look like Helena Troy are beautiful. Also women that look like ordinary people or “unattractive” people (I don’t actually believe in that but whatever) because why should beauty be skin deep? And what determines it? It changes over time and it changes per nation. Beauty like that doesn’t exist. The only eternal beauty is in people’s characters. Do you know that being fat used to be a beautiful trait in the West? It showed wealth. Now being skinny is the beautiful thing. Skin deep beauty like that fades and it changes.
So yes. Arya was beautiful before she started looking like Lyanna. And she looked like Lyanna before actually looking like her. Ned, the man that knew Lyanna, noticed it. Robert however didn’t. He, like Ned suggested, didn’t actually know her. He just saw her and imagined what he wanted. Just like I saw Sansa fans doing since season 1.
But sure. I can imagine D&D putting Jon with a character whose looks have been established, and then just changing the character into a better one or a good one so that people will ship them. Yes, I can imagine that, sadly.
People like to imagine that beautiful people are also good people, because we all need that. If they’re not good we make excuses as to why they aren’t or that they secretly are. Because they still need the character. This proves that most (all) people actually do care about character. People that love people that aren’t attractive don’t make excuses saying why they aren’t. They just see whoever they love as a beautiful person. Because they are. And they’re happy about it.(Having said all this I am so happy that Kit is actually a good person, kittens know what I’m talking about, this shows that out.beauty and in.beauty don’t have to be mutually exclusive).
And now back to Arya (says I who started a post about Arya and then wrote half the paragraphs not about her…)
Arya may become Helena Troy, but that won’t matter to Jon. He loved her while she was covered in mud with her hair in tangles. Her becoming beautiful on the outside will only change the way others look at her: Sansa, Jeyne Poole, Lommy, etc. Jon Snow (and Ned Stark if he was still alive) never cared about that. That’s why they were the ones to tell her she was beautiful before she started to look beautiful. Because they weren’t talking about her looks. They were talking about her.
I feel like the first drama you ever watch with lee jong seok needs to be Pinocchio. like, with that ugly-ass wig I straight up did not notice he was hot until he got the makeover, which totally sold him, and the show for me at that point. like, just suddenly seeing “oh shit this guy is actually a supermodel”
Could you write headcanons of Mila, Yuri P, and Viktor having an international supermodel girlfriend, if it's alright with you please? Thank you very much for having the time and patience to write for us! <3
[You’re welcome! I love love love writing imagines for everyone :3 ]
is super proud of her gf. she has a bunch of her photos saved to her phone
loves to tell other people she’s dating an international supermodel. definitely shows her off whenever she can
“she’s mine and all of you can cry me a river”
they’re such an attractive duo. the spotlight just naturally falls on them
she asks her gf to teach her what she knows on makeup, nails, hair, and stuff. loves it when they mess around with that stuff with each other
he’s kind of in a constant state of half-doubt. like “wow. I can’t believe I’m actually dating a supermodel”
he’s curious about how she’d look in a skating costume, since high-fashion is also pretty flashy
lets her do his hair for his competitions, since she knows a little bit about different styles and all kinds of new stuff he’s never tried
gets jealous whenever she’s out doing a show, since a bunch of strangers are taking pictures and they get to see her in cool outfits
they’re the eye candy couple lemme tell ya. they’ve got that indescribable ~glow~ and everything around them just. lights up.
Viktor and his gf feel very much like a celebrity pair. there’s at least a few articles on their relationship, probably
he attends as many of her shows as he can. he loves seeing his girlfriend in all kinds of different outfits
sneaks into her dressing room before and after showtime. he never gets in trouble because nobody thinks twice about his beautiful face, and if they do, he has a lot of natural charisma that lets him get away with it. he’s careful not to leave any visible marks like hickeys, even if she’s able to cover it with makeup, just in case
