and how he actually said it in an interview

anonymous asked:

baaask the CAT EARS interview thing!! djfkdjfksfdkl. how did your kitty brain react to hearing that??

HI! Soo okay just after this interview back in June 19, 2015. It was when I really lost it into kitty trash! I also remember there came a wave where we photoshopped cat ears on Robin and posted on here and twitter. Selene made an AMAZING one lol and Robin saw it and replied her with applause emojis oml. And then it just happened, my trash brain struck this headcanon out all of a sudden to my ”poor” okimi, this is how it looked, lmao. I’m under black and okimi is under green:

Oh believe me I waited…and dear wife produced good stuff :)) So yeah this is the earliest prints I have actually so I don’t remember if I had gone into the kitty thoughts at all before the actual interview. But well when he said it I just oh my goood that’s the cutest things xD And then that he approved getting photoshopped cat ears and tails on himself was so hilarious mwaha. And then it has just continued….in my kitty trash tag of trash. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

There are no actual jazz chickens in Eddie Izzard’s new Believe Me: A Memoir of Love, Death and Jazz Chickens. But there’s plenty of insight into what makes the beloved comedian tick – he credits coming out as transgender in 1985 for giving him the confidence to build his career.

OKAY ALSO WE HAVE TO INCLUDE THIS BECAUSE REALLY HOW COULD WE NOT. 

Ah! Ah!  You said death! I heard you!

Can I just say I have a lot of opinions about JJ, especially from a Westerner’s point of view? Specifically, the way he’s treated by the other skaters in YOI? JJ is loud, boisterous, and toots his own horn at every chance. Does this make him a bad guy? No way. In fact, all it does is paint a picture of how the rest of the world views people from America. Now, I’m from the US, so I can’t really speak for Canada, but I have quite a few Canadian friends and we are all, by definition, “North Americans”. I notice that our cultures aren’t really that different- specifically our social culture. Most Western young men act A LOT like JJ does- making jokes at other peoples’ expenses, trying to one-up everyone around them, be it verbally or otherwise, being really competitive and thriving in a competitive atmosphere, and generally just being very loud and obnoxious.

Yuri on Ice 2017/02/11 all night event report

I’m back from the event and I’ll write a report before going to sleep, mostly because I’m sure I will not be able to decipher my scribbles when I wake up… It’s not the full talk show since you can’t record it and also I couldn’t possibly write down everything, but I tried to take note of most things, especially stuff that has never been mentioned elsewhere. In the end it became quite long so I guess I was able to get most of the stuff down…

Needless to say it’s my notes, so other people might write about parts I omitted, etc. To be honest quite a few of the things they said especially in the beginning, like what the seiyuu think about their characters, is something I’ve read so many times in interviews that I could almost answer in their place, lol… I was a bit disappointed that one of the questions that was answered is the one about Chris’ mysterious acquaintance, because actually Kubo answered that in Pash already (it’s in the Q&A part I’ll be translating later), and I hoped they would feature questions about stuff that hasn’t been explained yet. Well I guess not everybody reads interviews, but still…

Due to the format of the report you can find my comments here and there, mostly in brackets.
Under the cut because it’s long.

I forgot to mention something important: the ones participating in the talk show were Mitsurou Kubo, Toshiyuki Toyonaga (Yuuri), Junichi Suwabe (Victor), Kouki Uchiyama (Yurio).

Bit and pieces and ramblings from watching the YOI blurays
  • According to the Volume 5 season guide booklet, Otabek and JJ are former rinkmates. This makes the fact that Otabek “curses” JJ before his GPF SP funnier to me somehow.
  • When fucking Swiss Living Legend himself Stephane Lambiel is recording his lines for his cameo in the last episode of the show, what looks like Kubo and Yamamoto and another woman are behind the glass either recording him on video or taking a million pictures on their phones with glazed, thrilled, fangirl faces. Deniss Vasiljevs, his teenaged student and Yuri on Ice fan, is sitting on a couch in the room taking notes while Stephane records his lines. 
  • All of the choreography reference videos for Yurio’s skate routines are done by a young female skater with a body type closer to Yuri’s 15 year old body. BUT! For Welcome to the Madness, Kenji-sensei himself skates the reference videos- in sunglasses, a coat, and a loose t-shirt that says “TASTY” in English. In the audio commentary he’s given shit about the shirt ;) Also, when one of the assistants pulls off (with her hands for both) his gloves (in the part that Otabek would have done), he says “…So embarrassing…”
  • In the Volume 6 interview with Yamamoto she talks about how she didn’t want to restrict Victor and Yuri to labels like “lovers” or “family” and that she just wanted to tell a story about a special and unbreakable bond. I think there’s been a lot of interpretation about this in fandom because she’s mentioned it in other interviews here and there and some people being upset thinking it means Victuri isn’t canon, but I don’t think that’s the case and I actually really love this approach- she and Kubo have said in the past that they weren’t interested in just telling a pat love story (the formula for these in anime and dramas isn’t great or particularly realistic) and I think it’s resulted in storytelling about falling in love that’s really unique and honest. Let the lady do what she likes, don’t harass her about putting labels on anything, it’s clearly given us a really special and lovingly made piece of media. 
  • I used to be of the opinion that canonically Victor is head-over-heels in love while Yuri is kind of oblivious to his own feelings but the more I rewatch this series, especially the blurays that don’t have the distracting crunchyroll subtitles (I don’t mean to be an asshole since I’m sure whoever did it was super rushed because of the simulcast schedule and probably had a ton of other simulcast episodes to get to, but this series is not translated to English thoughtfully or even sometimes accurately, which is a pity- the script is incredibly subtle and strong), the more I feel like they’re both equally head-over-heels, but both think they’re communicating it properly to their partner, while neither actually is 100% of the time (see: episode 11-12 fight. Yuri wanting to retire so he can stop holding Victor back / let Victor go back to his career is an act of love, though Victor doesn’t see it that way. Victor sees giving up his career for Yuri as an act of love, and Yuri clearly doesn’t see it that way either.) That said, in their dialogue and actions post Episode 7, it does strike me that they both understand that they’re in a mutual and loving relationship, which is why fanfiction and doujinshi that is set post-series where they aren’t “together” yet strikes me as extremely confusing. 
  • When I first saw Episode 12 I was really bothered by Victor’s random snarky comments but watching the bluray without being distracted by the English subs I had this sudden epiphany while he was talking that 1) Victor had no idea how to flirt BEFORE they were a couple, and 2) These are all really shitty attempts at flirtation with your partner after you are IN a couple and Victor doesn’t know how to do it. /wipes away a tear, bless your sweet heart Victor 
A few characters that need defense squads more than Tony St@rk:

James “Rhodey” Rhodes

I’ve rarely seen Rhodey brought up outside of what he does for Tony (not who he is to Tony…). What I have seen is fandom moving goalposts so the bantery moments that make them ship Steve or Clint or Bruce with Tony are just signs of a deep and totes platonic brotherhood for Rhodey and Tony. I’ve seen fandom repeatedly ignore that Rhodey is just as intelligent as Tony (they met at MIT, you fricks) in order to paint Tony as a benevolent saint for slumming it with someone so clearly inferior. Rhodey is unimportant to Tony’s life unless he’s saving it and even then, if he’s not “nice” about not wanting to watch his best friend self destruct, he’s abusive. This is still characterization fandom holds on to after deciding that Rhodey was an awful, aggressive Black man who didn’t deserve their precious Tony~

Iris West 

”Fans” of the Flash have been championing the characters’ death and recasting since Candice Patton got the role. Her character is often subject to aggressive misogynoir (that’s what happens when anti-black racism and misogyny collide) and Candice receives racist hate so frequently that she’s had to address it in interviews. People cut Iris out of scenes in her own life (her intimate moments with Barry and conversations with other characters about the WestAllen relationship). They tell Candice how much they want Iris to die because she’s a “damsel in distress” when we’ve seen Candice kick actual ass and save herself multiple times. Oh, and they call Iris useless even though Barry said that without her, there wouldn’t be a Flash.

Sam Wilson 

Where do I start? First of all, fandom thinks that he exists to be a perpetual and literal wingman for Steve and Bucky. When they deign to give him romantic relationships with either of them, the focus is rarely on Sam as a character but on what he can do for Steve or Bucky. Then there was the “oh Tony couldn’t be a Hydra member because they killed his parents (despite him not knowing that and having a history of bad decisions), but Sam could” nonsense that so many folks cosigned following Winter Soldier. Oh and how about in the wake of Civil War, fandom has decided that T’challa is going to be their new Mammy figure for the Avengers since he’s rich and started portraying Sam as actually abusive to Bucky in fics and meta??

Finn (The Force Awakens)

Between the dudebro fans that threatened to boycott the franchise and transformative fanwork folks erasing him from his own narrative in order to give his personality, backstory, and potential ship to Kylo… I mean… shit hasn’t been easy. Finn has been called a misogynist and sexual harasser for grabbing Rey’s hand at the start of the film. He’s been reduced to a big black cock in fan fics (because fandom apparently can’t get that size kink extends beyond the penis). Oh and there’s this huge piece of meta going around basically calling him a beta male to Kylo’s alpha (which is dudebro redpi||er language, but from the supposedly “good” side of fandom)???

Nick Fury

Fandom literally sees him as a villain more evil than the actual bad guys in the MCU… Because he tells it like he is while not spilling his secrets to the lowkey incompetent people that make up the majority of the Avengers. #NickFuryLies is a thing that trended and that people see as an integral but negative part of his character. He was the head of a freaking covert intelligence organization, folks. His job is literally about keeping his secrets close to the chest. But no #NickFuryLies and Steve and/or Tony should never ever trust him. Also, as a Black character, when not vilified, he’s another Mammy figure or benefactor for the Avengers. Because Black characters are disliked until they’re useful.


I could keep going and at a later date, I just might because there are SO MANY characters of color and/or female characters that fandom as an institution treats HORRIBLY all in the process of defending white male characters like Tony St@rk (who does not need a defense squad protecting from fandom unless it’s his own because they’re the ones basically writing trauma porn and using his fictional pain against people…)

Lately it seems that he’s always avoiding JK in public

In a span of 2 weeks, we have Jikook almost kiss each other & having a family dinner in front of tons of viewers, posting selca on social media, and Jimin very discreetly touching JK on stage. 

I? Don’t get it? When Jimin is like this??????

  • Jimin is a shy person:

Palm reader, Tony Leggett’s Youtube video (bless you @harunyany for bringing this to my notice) suggests that Jimin may act confident on stage, but he’s actually very shy

He himself once said in an interview that he’s a shy Busan man. 

  • Jimin said this about himself once:
  • Jimin always aims to be a cool person:

source

My point here is that maybe Jimin struggles to strike a balance between how much of his feelings to show on stage and how much to restraint. It’s extremely challenging to be hundred percent expressive when you’re a popular public figure. Everyone has eyes on you and you never know how your actions could be interpreted.

Over the years, Jimin has become more and more reserved. As much as we would love to see Jimin shower his affections on JK, it’s for his own (and the team’s) well-being that he take caution, all the more reason if Jikook are actually in a real relationship. Jungkook is another story altogether. Jimin has the dual responsibility to keep his emotions and also JK’s in check. He was born in Busan first after all. 

We have to accept the fact that their (or anyone’s) personal relationship is none of our business (we’re bystanders relishing the supposed chemistry they have) and so beyond our control. How Jimin handles his interpersonal relations is solely up to him. Even as die-hard Jikook shippers, we have to try and give them some space. We can’t expect Jimin to be all over JK in every concert, nor should he be. Our basis for their relation to be a reality is the fact that they’re almost always subtle and their moments aren’t in your face which would make it more of a fanservice (like the 21st Century Performance).

I would humbly request that people don’t judge Jimin for not being super eager in responding to JK’s affections. There could be so many reasons for that and what I’ve pointed out is only tip of the iceberg.

The way Jimin acts around Jungkook is weird-ass great and a dream come true for thirsty feisty shippers like us who like going down the rabbit hole and setting the whole place on fire with Jikook’s love.

anonymous asked:

WTF was all that pure pastel pink promo shit weeks ago? I feel like I dreamt it. Now when I look at the album art and listen to the lyrics about different women and sex and I make no correlation to the pure soft vulnerable bare Harry on the cover. WTF is the hard candy lyrics? WTF is going on with 'I am not a womanizer' image. Oh yeah sex, drugs & rock'n'roll. That's what's going on. As a fan of rock music I am so proud of the album. As a fan of Harry, I am disappointed.

Hello, and thank you for your message.

I completely understand. In fact this morning I did a full rant about my thoughts on the matter via Twitter. You can read it here. Like high key, Twitter is where I have no filter and am like “THIS IS WHAT I’M THINKING!!” and Tumblr is where I’m an analytical hoe about things, so let’s analyse!

I listened to the breakfast show last night (as I am currently in LA) and then fell into a mini rage coma because I, too, was like, “What the actual fuck just happened?” Then I woke up to this:

And I was like, “Well this is probably the most damage control we’ve ever gotten or will get.”    

HOWEVER! The dichotomy from Harry rainbow-wearin Styles and this NO HOMO I HAVE HETERO SEX WITH ALL THE WOMEN Hersh makes me…uneasy. That’s the only word I can come up with. Let’s be honest, last week Harry looked about one tattoo and rainbow away from coming out. This might as well have been him at that hockey game:

And then today with this…

There’s just this constant push and pull between what Harry DOES and what he says in interviews. But I get it. I do. Harry Styles is a billion dollar commodity. Do you understand how much revenue he’s brought to Sony in the last month? He sold out a tour for music that no one had even heard in minutes. 

At one point in my vida loca I was offered a publishing deal with a company that everyone has heard of. They wanted to publish it through their non-fiction department and they wanted me to say that I had slept with a don or professor at my university. Which I hadn’t. This was during my final year at university, and whilst I’m sure my life would’ve had a much different trajectory I’m also sure that once people figured out who I am (as many have), I would probably be stripped of my hard-earned Oxbridge degree for lying and shaming my university. Which is why you’ve never read any kind of SCANDAL at Oxbridge. Just the normal undergrad sex and drinking stuff. I rank quite low on the list of outrageous alumni if you look at the last 900 years of students. 

Back to Haz. 

Whilst I never compromised my morals, I also didn’t sign any kind of deal with the devil when I was 16. We have absolutely no idea what the details of his employment are. And he is an employee. Harry is owned by someone. Whether you like it or not, the bottom line doesn’t stop at Harry, it stops at the people who are investing in him and relying on a substantial profit. 

Perhaps the rainbows and pink and very romantic vibes he’s got going on with just about any man in his vicinity thing were all put out there to test the waters. We know that they monitor the fandom, and maybe the analytics didn’t hit their “okay to be gay” criteria. I’m speaking bluntly in terms of business because I can guarantee you that Sony cares about exactly one thing: the money that they are making for themselves. 

Something else to consider when recovering from whiplash because of this complete 180 Harry’s done since last week, is that interview with that horrible woman who said, “Fans are convinced that ‘Sweet Creature’ is about your relationship with Louis Tomlinson. Is it?” After which Harry spent approximately 138 seconds saying “Uhhhhhhhh” before refusing to say “no”. He could’ve said no! He could’ve SHOUTED no, as he did at Grimmy when he said, “Here’s a song about Taylor Swift!” One thing we got from that interview is that Harry does indeed have the word “No” in his vocabulary. “No. This isn’t about Taylor Swift.” vs “Yes. I can understand why fans think this is about Louis because it is but I would lean towards them maybe being wrong.” That isn’t how you say no. And that didn’t go over anyone’s head. 

Honestly, I love this album. “Woman” is actually my favourite song from it at the moment. I can’t really listen to “Two Ghosts” because it sounds too much like “Revelry” by Kings of Leon and that song is forever associated with a very bad time for me so yeah. “Woman” just reminds me of Bennie and the Jets and 27 Dresses.    

I just wish it could’ve been left at, “ It’s much more powerful when not taken simply as what it is.” Because that’s so true. This album is so layered and brilliant and I think I’m mostly mad that they’ve reduced it to such a boring and blatant interpretation. We got the very opposite of what Harry’s been telling us when he all but said that these songs are about actual women that he literally slept with. 

So I guess my question is…what exactly is Jeffry helping with aside from bringing back a narrative that Harry seemed to have tried relentlessly to debunk?

I just can’t reconciliate the Harry that they’re pushing this week with the Harry that reacted this way to being called a womaniser in an interview:

Regardless of what you think or ship, I do think that it’s fair to feel like you’re being asked to accept two completely contrasting versions of Harry Styles right now.

UPDATED VERSION WITH NEWS ABOUT MY INTERVIEW - First, I must bring something important here : Peridot’s “Wow thanks !!” is one of the most precious things in this world. I have to say it this just makes me fanboy and YES EVEN IN THIS CONTEXT IT NEEDED TO BE DONE like seriously imagine how fucking adorable it would be

THAT BEING SAID - I’m gonna talk about my interview. I was with the actual college’s principal.

I obviously showed my work, and finally my sketchbook because I have some expressions and chara-design I wanted to talk about - and he then started to browse my whole sketchbook saying it was really nice and I was kinda scared for some reasons bUT - he finally came across this one, and stopped turning the pages and he freAKING SMILED

And after looking at everything he said he loved my artstyle, my universe, the way I set my characters, my ideas and how motivated I was - Seriously at these moments I’m the one who wants to scream “WOW THANKS”

He even asked me who were my favorite animators, best way to make me talk for 15 minutes non-stop even though I usually can’t say a word in front of someone :’3

ANYWAY this interview was perfect and there’s a high chance I’ll be able to get to this art college.

kajuned  asked:

Hey, I'm curious. Is there anything psychologically different between Novel-Izaya and Anime-Izaya, and is there any difference between Novel-Shizuo and Anime-Shizuo?

Oh my, where do I even begin?

There are definitely things psychologically different from Novel-Izaya and Anime Izaya. 

(Fun fact - Anime is an anagram of Namie, I just mispelled it lol) 

I talked about it in this post some time ago. Generally, anime Izaya is made to seem invincible especially in the first season. And because they left out important novel scenes, there’s inconsistency in his character. For example, how did he get knocked out so easily by Slon while talking to Kujiragi when he had the advantage before? It was actually because Kujiragi mentioned Shizuo and Izaya ‘fell silent’. She spoke about Shizuo being a hindrance and thanked Izaya for landing him in jail. 

Whether he was worried about Shizuo or not, Izaya’s moment of silence and the description of his bad feeling shows that he’s not invincible even though he suddenly seemed to gain the upper hand. He was affected by his human feelings and emotions when Kujiragi mentioned Shizuo, for whatever reason. 

I took that as a Shizaya moment because it was very unusual for Izaya. But the point is, Izaya has human feelings and emotions that can render him vulnerable to unexpected consequences and is definitely not invincible, even though he may seem like it. 

This link was something the anime left out, the novels expands on this further with his conversations with other characters and the telephone pole scene where he punched a telephone pole as he thought of betraying Shinra. 

In retrospect Shinra, who lived confidently above this world, did invoke some jealousy in him.

Yet he was attempting to betray even a friend like that. Not a friend by Izaya’s standards, but a “friend”  as defined by most people in the world.

He’ll probably be mad at me if he finds out that I went to meet Celty taking the head with me.


“Haha!”

Izaya couldn’t help but laugh slightly as he pictured his only “friend” by the world’s standards getting mad at him.

There is nothing to be afraid of.

This is the way I have lived my life all along, he laughed as he thought  –

                                                                                                     Laughed  –

                                                                                                       Laughed –                                                                                                            
                                                                                                         Laughed –

He clenched his right fist and slammed it hard into the telephone pole next to him.

- Durarara Volume 9

This was a very important scene in Izaya’s character development especially after they showed his past with Shinra, his only friend. It shows Izaya’s conflict over his own desires which has governed the way he has lived all along and one of his only two relationships - the friendship he has with his only friend. Izaya was affected by a human relationship, and it really shows he isn’t some villain but just an abnormal human who is eternally true to his own desires (but is still affected by relationships like everyone else)

I’m working on a theory for Izaya’s attachment to humanity. It’s taking much longer than I thought since I lack the time to sit down and finish it. But I intend on showing how Izaya is actually very human. It will of course include reference to the Shinra stabbing incident as Izaya said himself it was probably the only thing that affected the formation of his personality in a significant way. I’ll also refer to the interviews about Izaya in his novel. So I’m currently integrating all the information together, both old and new about Izaya to formulate a theory that may explain Izaya’s attachment to humanity. You might want to look out for that if you’re interested in the psychology of novel Izaya. 

Other than novel Izaya not being invincible (both psychologically and outwardly), I guess another psychological difference would be that Izaya is actually a very private person. The impression I got from the first season was that Izaya was a very open person (not open-mindedness, as in socially open). 

But Izaya behind all his talk and interaction is actually very private. You don’t see it in the anime, but in the novel he thinks to himself a lot, reflects quite a bit, and generally is…very confident in his own identity internally. For example, Mikado’s first impression of Izaya was not that he was a weird person, but that he looked like an ‘intellectual that gave tuition in some remote district’. It speaks to the demeanor novel Izaya has that Mikado would form such an impression of him. 

Even though he might seem open with humans, Izaya actually keeps to himself a lot. Shinra said himself in his interview that Izaya’s not the type to stand in front of people. You can see that in both the novel and anime version of middle school Izaya. While he was portrayed like a rebel in the anime, in the novel he was just distant and enjoying observing humans. He was actually a model student, not a rebel, so that’s another difference in portrayal there. 

What a strange guy. 

I’ll just keep observing him in the future.

But I have to watch out. Getting too close to him might be dangerous.

So this is just a small scene when Izaya thinks as he watched Shinra leave to go home to Celty (though he didn’t know that yet). But even with Shinra Izaya is already distancing himself. He tells himself he can’t get too close to Shinra, can’t let himself be too affected and involved in their friendship. Perhaps he’s apprehensive Shinra wouldn’t satisfy his expectations, perhaps he just doesn’t want to become like everyone else - whatever the reason is, Izaya has, since young, kept a distance between himself and humans. So much that he has to be ‘wary’ when he feels himself getting closer to Shinra than necessary.

At first sight, he looked like a gentle-natured man of slender build, but his features had a relative sharpness in them, making him the perfect exemplification of the word “handsome”. He was smiling as if willing to accept anything in the world as part of him; yet at the same time his eyes shone without mercy as if he held contempt for everything except himself. The way he dressed was idiosyncratic, but it was hard to point at why. Overall, he gave an elusive and mercurial vibe.

- Durarara Volume 5

What are the implications of this? Well, it just shows how distant Izaya is from humans. And how he keeps to himself. Even though he’s handsome, it doesn’t matter to him, and he may only use his good looks for human observation and not any socialization. He has a stable internal perception of his love for humans, so he’s willing to accept anything, but at the same time he’s the only one who understands his love for humans so he holds a contempt for everything except himself. 

One reason why could be his tendency to keep things to himself and how he’s a private person. Like, he says he loves humans and declares love for humans but except with Shinra (and a reluctant Shizuo), doesn’t try to form any sort of relationship with them. He doesn’t try to connect to them in a way they can understand (maybe because he can’t because of his upbringing) and so they can’t understand him. And so he’s left with him only understanding himself and being shunned and outcast from society, which will naturally breed contempt.

That might be why Izaya seems mysterious and ‘elusive’ - because he’s such a private person. He’s more introverted in the novels, in that it seems natural for him to be alone with his thoughts. I guess you can kind of see this in Volume 5 where he’s shown to have stayed at an internet cafe alone while working on his plans for the city, left alone and walked away alone, he basically just does things alone.

Novel Izaya is also not in control of everything. Well you can see that in the anime as well when he got knocked out twice. But I mean, he’d move the piece that will give him the most advantage, but generally he’s open to any result. He just seems like he’s in control all the time because he accepts everything that happens (except with Shizuo). Because he loves humans unilaterally and doesn’t have any personal feelings or relationships with them (except Shinra and Shizuo) So again, he’s not invincible in his predictions. He does have some idea of how things will go and what he wants to see, but he’s less of a ‘mastermind’ in that sense. He’s still a mastermind, but has less of the ‘mastermind mindset’? In that he doesn’t expect everything to go according to plan. 

And I suppose novel Izaya is more sensitive. You don’t see it in the anime, but when he was left out of hotpot, it was mentioned he ‘felt more lonely than usual’. Tsukumoya said that he’s lonely but accepts that loneliness. And he was not happy at being left out of the events of Volume 4, which is part of the reason why he wanted the ‘city’s holiday’ to be over. He’s more human in that sense. Like, he’s a logical minded man, but he actually acts on his feelings quite a bit. He is affected by his feelings, sometimes even driven by them (like in the death match with Shizuo) and is definitely human.

Also, novel Izaya is more like a child. As in, there are various times in which he’s described like a kid having fun. So in that sense he really doesn’t have any malice. He just wants to see, like a kid discovering more about the world. Shiki agrees with this, in both the novels and his interview for Izaya’s novel. I’ll be expanding on this with my Izaya attachment theory in the future.

“I will never be able to reach my ideal self.”

(Shoma’s interview in the Quadruple 2017 Extra magazine. Magazine scan credits to @niaori​ - Please do not repost these photos.)

As an explorer of figure skating…

Shoma Uno, who decided to devote his life to figure skating when he was little, and who has been chasing after his ideal self since then. Even after winning the silver medal at the World Championships, as he evolves himself, he continues to push his skating life forward while maintaining and improving his skills, mental strength, and physical condition.


Congratulations on your silver medal at Worlds and your gold medal as a team at the World Team Trophy. Is there a different type of happiness in winning as a team compared to winning alone?

S: Yes. Since this is the outcome which resulted from everyone’s best fights, there is a different type of happiness to it.

During WTT, were you thinking about the Team Event at the Olympics?

S: That, I didn’t really think about. I did have the goal to “win as a team”, but I was mainly thinking “I hope each and every one of the team members get to skate their best performance” and “I hope I don’t pull the team down”.

“Hi, welcome,” the excited interviewer said smiling widely.

“Thank you,” Sebastian answered giving her a warm smile as he settled into the chair.

He was currently doing an interview so he could promote the new Marvel movie, but his manager did warn him that there would be other questions, too.

“How are you?” 

“I’m really great, working on this movie was so much fun even though I had to deal with Chris’ boob grabs,” he chuckled thinking about the many people who actually wished they could be on the receiving end. 

The interviewer laughed along cracking a joke about this particular action admitting she could understand why people loved it. After that, she continued talking about the movie and asking about the shenanigans the cast got into before moving on to other subjects. 

“I have to say, I saw the interview with James Corden…” she trailed off giving him a smirk.

Cole Sprouse | “You can’t prove anything!”

A/N: well just hope you like it 

MASTERLIST

PROMPTS

AND REQUESTS HERE

anonymous asked:  Cole sprouse where he takes you to visit the riverdale set and you guys are all lovey dovey and the cast makes fun them 💕

Cole and you have always been close. You were best friends before you started dating and now you were finally together, cliche! Nonetheless, you loved each other and sometimes you tend to be very lovey-dovey. Most of the time that made your friends and family make fun of you. So when Cole decided to take you with him on set it did not take you by surprise that  everyone never missed the opportunity to joke about your realationship. You would always distract him while trying to film or that’s what he would say every time he forgot his lines or just decided to do a stupid face.

You had only spent about two days on set with your loving boyfriend and his amazing cast members and all of them would keep on mocking you about everything, even after you left them and went back home. Today, for example, Kj was having an interviewer and he was asked about Cole and how he acts when he’s talking about you or when he’s around you. “It’s actually hillarious that he refuses he does this but he is costantly talking about her. He’s like, ‘ Awww look at her dude, she is so adorable in this photo’ or ‘I CAN’T EVEN BREATH SHE’S SO PRETTY’. He’s like a total fangirl when it comes to her. And honstly I cannot blame him.” He said and Cole couldn’t keep a straight face. “Dude, I don’t even act like that!” He tried to say when Lily jumped into the conversation pretending to be Cole sporting a fake manly voice. “’Oh my God, Lily, look at this photo of Y/N! She looks so beautiful!’ Said Cole showing me a photo with teary eyes when she sent him that said photo from a party she went to.” She said and Kj started laughing while bringing the image to his mind. “OK, it was one time-” “’Oh my look at her. She is so pretty when she is sleeping’” “ BUT THAT’S TRUE! She is so pretty when she sleeps it’s not my fault. Still you can’t prove anything.” Cole said and all three went on with the interview.

Only a few hours later Kj took to instagram to prove everything he said at that interview was true. “Soo, Cole says I can’t prove anything about him being so *cough* whipped *cough* So please enjoy his compilation of screenshots of his talking about her and some videos I took!” And right then it started. There were about 20 screeshots posted all proving that Cole couldn’t stop talking about you and about 5 videos. There was especially one from the time you got to visit him that you were sleeping on a chair while they were filming. “ I swear look at how adorable she looks!! Oh my god my feelings!” He said acting like a complete fangirl. There were more. Some old snapchats of his towards Kj or Lily saying how cute you look in a new outfit or when wearing his pieces of clothing. Honestly, he couldn’t deny it anymore. He is so whipped!

anonymous asked:

I genuinely think you've overestimated the size of Harry's role in Dunkirk and I always have. I'm not just basing it on the lack of presence in the trailer. I just think he's going to be one of those soldiers that we always see in the background, very few (if any) speaking lines, he'll just be there. Sometimes those are the kind of characters that you remember and root for, the ones in the background that you start to feel for. I'll be surprised if he's heavily involved in promo too. We'll see.

There’s very little I can say without making a big spoiler of the whole film, but in particular the scenes he filmed in Dorset made me believe he has a significant role (none of which feature in the trailer, as they happen far later into the film). Fionn is the lead soldier - I’ve always acknowledged that - but Harry will spend a lot of time with him, particularly when it looks like Fionn gets separated from Aneurin. The soldiers were always going to be the main focus of this movie too, as they’re the ones who were trying to get home! 

Before the movie had even started filming, there was a lot said by trustworthy movie media about how there were 4 main characters - then acknowledged to be Fionn, Harry, Jack and Aneurin. As the filming then went on to begin and continue over the months, it played out like that too as these actors were seen the most. I’ve also mentioned how these are the 4 characters who have an overlap on where they feature (Land/ Sea or Air/ Sea). Harry was also one of the only actors in Dunkirk to film in all  4 of the locations (Dunkerque, Urk, Dorset and LA). 

We’ve already seen how the camera pans in on Fionn while the 3 lads are sat on the beach - he will always be the main focus. But the trailers and TV spots shown so far do show Harry as the focus of certain scenes (more so than Aneurin and these are just a small teaser of what is to come, as the soldiers scenes are seen as far too large a spoiler to show. That’s why the ones with the flames etc. in the trailer just seem to show extras). 

In terms of dialogue - Christopher Nolan has already said that the whole movie has limited dialogue. He was inspired by old silent movies and the likes. There will be dialogue of course, but a lot of gaps inbetween when it’s not required, and very little background information on these characters. That’s a stylistic choice he has made and should prove to be really interesting.

Promo: it’s a difficult one. I’ve already said that the interviewers will want to speak to Tom Hardy etc. (who barely filmed, certainly not with many actors. His Spitfire role could be split throughout the film easily, though). Fionn will get the newbie spot on the couch. On top of that, they don’t really want to push Harry too much. 1. because they don’t want to be seen as using his name for promo, which could also work against it and 2. because I think it would actually be better for Harry for people to walk into this movie not realising how much he features!

Here are some of the highlights of Grimmy’s interview with Jake GyIIenhaal:

- Nick’s opening line was: “I can barely hear you through that beard. If you’re not watching, Jake has the same colour of hair, beard, eyebrows, and jumper, which is like talking to a haystack.”

- Then he went straight into the Valentine’s Day incident. At first, Jake tried to lie he had sent the flowers but they were rejected. But then said he just forgot, and he’s better at texting so he’ll just give Nick his number, so he can text him when he wants flowers, and then when Jake doesn’t text Nick back he will have some time to come up with another excuse before he comes on the show again.

- Then they bonded over not knowing how to carry their little dogs, doing it as if they were babies and not dogs. And Jake said if Nick’d sent him an email “Jake, I want to wrap you up like a baby” he might’ve responded

- Nick offered Jake to choose a song to play, but Jake said “I’m OK, thanks”

- They were talking about Ryan Reynolds and how he’s great and nice (cause Canadian) and Grimmy said Canadians have the hottest prime minister and that he emailed him on Valentine’s Day and he actually replied (cause Canadian) and now they’re dating

- Nick asked “Do you think you’re good?” Jake “There were moments when I thought ‘OK. That was good.” Nick “Did you do that in the mirror?”

- Then they were talking about lying and calling in sick, and Nick said that today he tried to do that and told Fiona he didn’t want to interview Jake Gyllenhaal but she’d told him to suck it up. Jake “Were you honestly or were you just bummed about the email?” Nick “Yeah, I was heartbroken, I’ve been in therapy for three months.”

In conclusion, they are in love.

170402 Jikook/Kookmin

Okay so this is about the Hollywire interview, which I’m positive (and 100% sure) that it happened on the 2nd day of the concert in Anaheim.

Ah before starting, I need to make myself clear as well. This is basically guess, assumption, opinion etc. which is made by a Jikook/Kookmin shipper (me xD). So it can be very biased, of course, even tho I try my best not to be biased, since I’m the type of shipper who only believes in what she sees. But yeah, you can disagree and dislike it, but I hope no one will be rude to Jikook/Kookmin shippers in general because of this. Please don’t judge other shippers just because of me is what I mean :-)


So let’s review what happened that day 1st.

I’m not sure if this happened before or after the soundcheck, but I guess it happened after, since they were fully clothed and wore makeup. 

On that day (you can refer to this fanaccount for more detail), I basically summed it up as Jimin rejected a backhug from Jungkook. We didn’t know what happened in detail, but I assumed they had a small quarrel, and perhaps, perhaps Jungkook was the cause, so I observed some unnatural things below.


1st:

Somehow I notice Jungkook is pretty cautious towards Jimin, like his wary eyes looking to Jimin’s direction here:

Like he looks pretty uneasy:


2nd:

And when they are asked to do the Bangtan bangtan bangbangtan cheer, 1st Monie gives the sign to Jimin by touching him:

Notice how quickly Jungkook reacts while Jin is still holding his hands together:

As Jungkook’s fingers lands on Monie’s hand, Jimin’s are supposed to be next:

Like normally your hand should go down, but Jimin’s hand suddenly goes up (he changes its direction very clear, please refer to the original video to see):

and then literally lands in the air before some other members put their fingers there and he places his on

Okay, I totally mean that he avoids skinship with Jungkook.


3rd:

Moving on, I’m pretty sure most of you noticed international playboy Jungkook is back, he keeps placing his hand on the wall behind the interviewer’s back, but another coincidence happens right after Hobi places his hand on Jimin’s shoulder:

It’d be a coincidence for me if Jungkook didn’t see it, and his expressions weren’t like that… You know, one thing adds to another… So he’s getting close to the interviewer again with that hand on the wall.


4th:

Next, when the interviewer asks “who’s the most intense on stage?”, even tho she said all were indicating Monie, my shipper’s eyes can’t help but notice Jungkook is actually pointing at Jimin (the camera didn’t film Jungkook’s face so I couldn’t verify if he was looking at Jimin, so I could be wrong here).

And Jimin is clearly not very amused even tho he was smiling just secs before…


5th:

When they are asked who takes the longest time to prepare…

He has this kinda look when he looks at Jimin, I dunno how to explain it, like kinda sulky(?) :

but he mumbles “Jimin” anw xD

While everyone is smiling Jungkook is “…”


I’m like 80% sure that I notice that tongue-in-the-cheek-thing here after Jimin being complimented and everyone having fun (except for our baby), but I could be wrong because of the lighting…

Maybe someone who can gif can try to gif this moment and somehow tries to make the lighting differently so that it’s easier to see? I dunno, I’m dumb when it comes to technology, sorry, I tried TT_TT

If this is really true then at this point I’m pretty convinced he just does that thing unconsciously whenever it comes to Jimin. It’s nothing bad tbh, please don’t make a big deal out of it…

Bonus:

You can watch this interview which happened on the same day as well. I mean it’s so rare for them to stand next to each other and have no interaction at all, esp. there’s this heavy air surrounding them. Look how when the interview just starts, Jimin distances himself from Jungkook this much:


All in all, I make this not to cause any controversy/worry about their relationship. They’re humans, they have feelings. They can be mad, they can quarrel sometimes. That doesn’t mean their relationship will break or collapse or anything of the sort. I just find it interesting to observe their interaction with each other, in good or bad times.

And I’m pretty sure they solved it not too long after that. I mean, hello, 21st century girls’s moments (maybe Jimin hit Jungkook’s chest because of that haha * joke joke *)

So yeah, thank you so much for bearing with my horrible screen caps and writing. I mean, I tried my best, so… 

Also, if anyone has anything about Jikook/Kookmin that you wanna discuss with me, please feel free to do so (pretty please, I’ve been using this for a while but I have no one to talk with TT_TT)

Again, thank you for spending time reading this~~~ and have a nice day or good night wherever you are~, be happy with Jikook and Bangtan ♥
