Chihokogate is overwhelmingly romantic; fight me

I’ve seen people describe the “Overcome Chihoko” story in a number of ways–Victor being Extra, crackfic, something written purely for laughs, and so forth. And yes, I think all of those things are true, to a certain extent, but I’m not sure we appreciate exactly how lovely of an instance of crackfic this is.

More below the cut.

Thoughts on the madness

I know absolutely everyone and their mothers have done this, but I also wanted to write what I enjoyed the most about WTTM

  • Hey yes I’m an otayuri shipper and I will focus this onIS YUURI’S MOM PRAYING TO VICCHAN AFTER YUURI MEDALED?!?!?!!?!??!!?!?!? AND MAKKACHIN IS THERE TOO THIS IS SUCH A TENDER MOMENT I’M SO GLAD THEY INCLUDED THIS
  • Yuri leaning on his right hand when talking to Yakov and Lilia is one of the most aesthetically pleasing things I’ve seen in a while
    • LILIA BARANOVSKAYA WITH HER HAIR DOWN AND BEING THE PROUDEST OF YURI!!!!! I love Yuri and Lilia’s relationship so much! I wish they’d expand more on them next!!
  • OKAY, lemme start on the otayuri. You see, when you *don’t* care about things, your brain tends to not look up for them, right? And when you *want* or *like* something, you start seeing it everywhere, right? Well, there were so many people at the hotel lounge and it was a big distance, YET, Yuri saw Otabek walking as if he was subconsciouly looking out for him.
  • MASUMI SAN MADE AN APPEARANCE
  • “You are only 18 yourself!!” YURI PLISETSKY, 15-ALMOST-16, UNDERSTANDS THAT PEOPLE OF 18 AREN’T REALLY ADULTS
  • Otabek is such a kid lmao, running away from Yuri after he said his age seems like a responsible choice, but for me that’s so childish haha, like, “oh no, he’s a child™” rotfl honestly
  • Yuri screaming they are done and then remembering he needs someone to bitch it’s best friends forever behavior right there AND IT’S BEEN 3 DAYS
  • I LOVE FRIEND GANGS AND NOW I NEED 764985745 FICS OF MILA, SARA, MICKEY AND EMIL PARTYING
    • Sara Crispino doesn’t have time for your bullshit and will set a Czech guy to lift you if you mess up with her crew
  • “Maybe Otabek feels bad because he lost to you”, “Who cares, I’m his friend” the contract has been sealed, Otabek should have read the finer print tbh
  • LEO DE LA IGLESIA AND OTABEK ALTIN ARE FRIENDS CONFIRMED I’D LIKE TO THANK LIFE AND JESUS
    • Leo is a stalker confirmed
  • Yuri “I hate you all and will destroy you with my knife shoes“ Plisetsky accepted talking and interacting to people he’s not friends with only to find Otabek. Imma be real, I wouldn’t do this if I didn’t want to get into someone else’s pants AND YET
    • I’m sorry but it’s confirmed that ALL skaters stalk Otabek on a daily basis, 100% canon, confirmed, don’t touch me
  • My heart got broken because Chris’ heart is broken
  • Georgi doesn’t have Yuri’s number I CACKLED
  • YURI PLISETSKY WENT BACK TO THE HOTEL TO PUT ON CLOTHES THAT HELD MEANING TO OTABEK, THEN TEASINGLY SHOWED THEM YES SURE KID, THAT’S FRIENDLY BEHAVIOUR, SURE
  • it’s been 3 days and they have already mastered the ‘talking through the eyes’ bff thing, do you see the chemistry or do I need to pull out the periodic table and slap your face with it
  • Otabek’s smirk™
  • Yuri opening up to Otabek and talking to him about his skating. This is again what I love about them the most, that Yuri knows Otabek respects him above all and can confide him with what he treasures the most, his skating.
    • Yuri never asks for advice and he’s asking Otabek for advice.
  • Yuri‘s body language. He’s already very intimate with Otabek and leans on him when talking. Otabek doesn’t seem to mind.
  • Otabek’s second smirk™
  • “I didn’t want things to end awkwardly between us” the fact Otabek thinks this could have happened breaks my heart, he is so desperate for Yuri’s friendship but doubts himself a lot.
  • “That’s the Yuri I most want to see” take this platonically or romantically, I don’t care, but sometimes you love someone SO MUCH, you only want them to succeed, be their best and let them inspire you as well. Otabek’s feelings for Yuri are so pure and ask for nothing in return but to let him see.
  • “I realize that this is probably just one moment. One brief moment in my long life to come. But like hell I’m gonna let this one moment control me. And… If I can just trust… That what I love is the key to my salvation… Then I can be reborn as many times I like on the ice.”
    • FUCK
    • HOLD ME
    • The last part is so beautiful and sweet and appeals to my poetic needs like you guys can’t even imagine. I don’t care about the rest of the manga, this is what I’m treasuring and remembering♥♥♥ About the first part, Yuri is not only passionate about skating, he loves it, he belongs to the ice, he wants to devote himself to the ice as long as he can. This reminded me of episode 4 when he said he only had a short time frame to make history and how could you not love and respect such a passionate person like him♥♥♥ This is why Yuri Plisetsky is my favorite character.
  • Am I the only one who when saw the bad scanned manga thought Yuuri was trembling when lifting Victor and cackled loudly? No? Just me? ok
  • Intensely eyefucking your best friend of 3 days:  ✔️
  • Not having any damn idea what I’m getting myself into but I can’t let you down because I set the bar way too high after that soldier’s eyes line: ✔️
  • This needed more JJ am I the only one with JJ needs after this?
  • They didn’t plan to pair skate in advance. The glove was not planned. I shall repeat myself: Taking the glove off with his teeth was not planned.
    • WHAT DID YURI HAVE IN MIND WHEN HE STUCK HIS FINGERS THERE, THEN
    • HOW DOES OTABEK KNOW HOW TO TAKE CLOTHES WITH HIS TEETH AND NOT BITE IN THE PROCESS
      • CAN HE DO THAT WITH CONDOMS
  • Please read this post with what little I wrote after because this is what I thought of the presentation in general. More or less, I believe WTTM portrays their future relationship in an interesting way.

if u read this u deserve a kiss

anonymous asked:

Would you be willing to share some of your thoughts about Yuri's motivation over the rings, at least? I'd be curious to read your thoughts especially since that scene in particular has a lot of cultural terminology and background that doesn't translate perfectly for International audiences to begin with.

This is a hard one because, as you wrote, I think there are cultural differences especially regarding the concept of “omamori” (protective charms).

First of all it would be very useful to read this interesting and complete post about “omamori”. Although regarding the part about the rings being round and that symbolizing a bond I’m not sure, I think that might be reading too deeply. At the end there’s also my comment on the meaning of the word “omajinai”, which is also not that easy to translate…

This said, the rest under the cut. Of course this is just my personal interpretation based on the Japanese dialogues in the anime and partly on interviews (I think it doesn’t even clash with the “soulmates” thing in the interview from CREA). All quotes from the dialogues are translated by me and do not use the English sub/dub. I am translating “omamori” as “protective charm”.

Warning: it’s kind of long and has pictures because if I don’t explain it thoroughly it might be hard to get my point across.

Me Too Victor...

I like to HC that Victor has a few guilty pleasures he still hasn’t told Yuuri about. Even after he’s moved to Saint Petersburg to live with him. (They live together now don’t try to tell me otherwise.) They’re all harmless. But he likes to keep them for himself, something he can go back to once in awhile to just let loose on his own.

Like for example. The joy he gets when he’s able to dance around in his underwear to Meghan Trainor’s “Me Too”.

He’ll have it no other way- It always has to start with him standing in front of the full length mirror in his bedroom, singing into a hair brush (once it was a dildo, he needed something fast as it came on shuffle, don’t judge him). If he has time before the song starts he makes sure one of his favorite gold medals is around his neck. Partial to the Olympic one, for obvious reasons.

He usually spends the first verse and bridge dramatically singing to himself in the mirror. Which is fun, he loves that part. But his favorite is the chorus.

Victor spins and breaks away from the mirror. And vogues his fucking heart out towards the bedroom door. Of course Mr. Victor Extra Nikiforov has bluetooth speakers set across his condo, so it’s usually no problem for him to keep voguing and cat-walking down the hallway. Striking dramatic poses when the music calls to him for it.

When he hits the living room by the time the next verse hits he almost always gets the attention of Makkachin. He reverts to some more dramatic moves, pretending like he’s either performing live on stage or for an extra fun party-themed music video. Makkachin is totally his entourage for this part, bouncing behind him excitedly. Best Pupper is used to this, you guys, he knows the drill when he sees Daddy voguing down the hallway.

Victor makes sure to get a line or two of the next bridge sung to Makka before the chorus starts and he abuses the extra space in his living room for some of his favorite voguing and dance moves.

The end of the song changes often. Depending on his mood. Today he’s feeling a bit saucy. This is his first time getting the condo to himself since Yuuri moved in. (Had to run some personal errands.) They had a particularly amazing night in bed too, so Victor is feeling his oats. There’s a lot of body touching and booty popping mixed in with his usual spins and just down right fun ‘who gives a fuck’ dancing. All during which Makkachin is still prancing about, happy to see Daddy back at his old routines.

He’s got this. He feels fierce as fuck and he’s kind of upset no one is there to record him because god damn is he nailing these moves right now. Victor is so into it he decides he wants to try something he’d started practicing ages ago, and hadn’t since. Can he land it? He’s got faith right now because this boy is on fire.

Victor has the count down for this song like nobody else does. Okay, he’s sure Meghan and her team have it under control too. But he finally gets to the point at the end where he’s ready to give it his all. Oblivious to the sound of the door unlocking because He. Is. In. This. Moment. Nothing is stopping him now. He gears up, prepares his body- which is turned just so away from the front door that he doesn’t notice it open, and launches himself into an absolutely flawless death drop.

Makkachin barks as he throws his hairbrush filled fist in the air from the living room floor. Victory! He fucking nailed it. Of course he did.

But he isn’t getting bombarded by Makkachin’s kisses at the end like he usually gets. Instead his faithful entourage is unceremoniously bounding right over him and towards the doorway.

Victor raises his eyebrows as he turns his head to see Yuuri standing there, petting Makka as he stares wide eyed at his fiance, sweaty and sprawled on the hardwood floor in his black panties. His eyes glance at the hairbrush, the gold medal, and he shakes his head with a curl of his lips as the song begins to repeat on the speakers. “Having fun without me?”

Today our HUGE Amiami box came and it’s two months of backed up YOI stuff (plus stuff from other series but this post is focusing on just YOI), so here is an absolutely massive loot post. I  think this literally almost doubled our YOI collection.

First off is the Chara-Forme Yuri on Ice Acrylic Strap Collection Vol.3 by Empty! These are all Kiss and Cry themed and in my opinion this is one of the cutest sets they’ve released. Look even Georgi is adorable lol. 

This is the Yuri!!! on Ice Rubber Strap Collection Pair by Movic. There’s actually one non-pair in there as you can see lol. Yes they did remember the ring on the Victuuri one, by the way. Recent merch has been getting better about this, thankfully. I really like this set a lot (especially the bottom two. IDEAL). The only thing I’m not a fan of is how the ‘transparent strap’ style of them washes out the color in their faces a bit so you can’t see their blushes from the original art! 

The  Chara-Forme Yuri on Ice Acrylic Strap Collection Vol.2 by Empty! These are all based on the ED theme. The Yuuri in this set is blessed by angels. I don’t make the rules. It’s just true. 

Yuri!!! on Ice Clear Rubber Strap by Sol International. These are really cute and creative and all the straps have different colored sparkly backgrounds!! The top three are obviously themed to go together (both Yuuri and Victor are singing omg), and Yuuri is talking to a tiny Phichit on the bottom one of him. Also Victor and Yuuri as JOINT HASETSU AMBASSADORS is the best thing I never knew I needed. 

Yuri!!! on Ice Choko Kawa Rubber Strap by Sega. I really like the art in this set. It’s really soft and the thick lines are nice!! Also the skating Yurio has a sweet expression, which is rare but good. 

es Series nino Rubber Strap Collection by Kotobukiya. Chris’s pose is so extra. Haha I don’t have much to say here. They’re cute. 

Yuri!!! on Ice YuraYura Keychain by Bushiroad. For some reason my photos of all of these turned out really poorly, so you get these photos where the ones I’m selling are cut off, which I guess doesn’t really matter. I wonder why they put Yuuri in that promo outfit he never wears in so much stuff. I mean it’s a nice outfit but. Anyway, I ended up really LOVING these. The colors are super bright and the art is adorable!! Also no photos but they’re just as detailed on the back (for example Yurio’s hair is braided in the back on the keychain). 

Yuri!!! on Ice Tojikore Acrylic Keychain Vol.2 by TwinCre. So these are actually keychains, but they came with plastic stands, so you can display them as acrylic stands as well which is the BEST IDEA EVER. I love this so much and I dearly hope more keychain sets do it because it is so clever and handy. @abarero figured out a really, really awesome way to display our excessive amounts of keychains, but even then, this is always going to be better to me than hanging up yet another set of keychains. ANYWAY, every single keychain in this set is a gift; from banquet dancing to katsudon pirozhki to just… all of them. It’s so good. Absolutely one of my top three faves released for the series so far. 

Here’s keychains that came by themselves!

The History Maker Yuuri and the ending theme sparkler Yuuri were ACTUALLY amiami exclusive bonuses that came with the Kiss and Cry keychains and the Ending Theme keychains, but since they packed them separately I forgot to include them in those pictures. Whoops. 

Anyway, the big chibi keychains of Victor, Yuuri, Yurio, JJ, and Otabek are by Avex and they’re chibi versions of the Comiket exclusive release keychains. JJ, Otabek, and Yurio belong to @pantacular. 

Charappuccino Phichit is by Birthday. I actually did have Victor and Yuuri ordered too, but they were a couple of the items that got canceled, and they were out of stock. I actually did manage to find them on another site and have reordered them, but they’re not here yet. This keychain is so precious. 

The Tsumamare Victor and Yuuri are the little keychains hanging by their shirts. They’re by Cospa. They’re so cute and expressive. Especially the Yuuri! 

Bocchi-kun are by ACG and they’re the little tiny pouty keychains. They’re super cute, but I admit I’m a little disappointed by how tiny they are. Though I’m familiar with the line, I’ve never ordered a Bocchi-kun before, so I was unaware of their size. I don’t regret ordering them, and I’d still have gotten them (it’s not like they were pricey), but yeah, small. 

That single Yuuri is a Jelly Charm by ACG. And lastly is the Oshikura Victor by Orange Rouge. This actually came out in January, but I missed ordering it. Victor and Yurio are relatively easy to find, but Yuuri seems to be sold out everywhere, so Victor is having to wait. I did find Yuuri somewhere, but he’s a bit overpriced. It’s not TOO bad though, so I’ll probably go ahead and bite the bullet and get him instead of having to resort to bidding on auctions.  

NON KEYCHAIN LOOT.

In front, Love&Life and On Ice Victor and Yuuri cellphone stands from Atelier Magi because they’re great. Behind that, Cospa’s Vkusno! rice bowl. Next to that, Gyugyutto cushion straps of Victor and Yuuri by Bell House (Victor gets katsudon but poor Yuuri doesn’t lol). Behind them, Victor and Yuuri mugs by Gift. And inside the mugs, Victor and Yuuri Nitotan plush by Takara Tomy ARTs (which are super cute and nicely detailed). 

Here’s the inside of the rice bowl:

‘sup from Yuuri

Okay here we go. More non-keychain loot.

The Playful Mind (that’s the brand) collaboration stuff was cute as shit so I picked up some stuff from it. Good stuff, high quality, adorable art. 

There’s two (faux) leather trays, a coin purse, a phone case, and two cord holders. 

Above that is two pass cases of Victor and Yuuri being dapper in suits by A3! There were keychains released by Animega with this art, but they are near IMPOSSIBLE to get, and I’m resigned to the fact that it will never happen, so when I saw these pass cases, I decided to snag them instead. You can use them as keychains, so they essentially serve the same purpose.  

There’s Victor and Yuuri hair clips by Emu, which I’ll actually probably sell because they are big! I thought they’d be little ones judging by the price, but they’re big and I have short hair, so we’ll see about that. Above that is three sets of can badges, all by Movic. Then there’s the super cute 2016-2017 School Calendar, which I’m so pleased stands up on its own. 

Down below is three pens. Two of them are those kitschy ‘floaty’ ones where a figure floats down the pen, in this case it’s Victor and Yuuri ‘skating down’ a rink in the pen. They’re cute. The other one is a really cool, elegant pen themed after Yuuri’s FS outfit. 

Some closer up pics: 

OKAY LAST BUT NOT LEAST:

The softe things.

Usually I crop images to just the merchandise but like hell I was going to crop out my cat. Oxford now graces this post with his remarkable presence. 

Makkachin tissue box cover by Avex Pictures. Just as fluffy as all the rumors have foretold. 

Then! The Victor and Yuuri pillowcases by M’s. Extremely soft fabric!! Would recommend for resting head upon. The picture is kind of a bad angle and frankly they BOTH look weird in this photo because of it but… I think, upon seeing it in person, the complaints about Victor’s face are very unwarranted. He actually looks really good and sweet and gentle in person and very much like Victor? The problem is parts of the rest of his body, where the anatomy is wonk (but this is just the pillow, so it’s only shoulders up and you don’t get that). And Yuuri looks great of course.  

ANYWAY, that’s end of this massive post. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. I’ll have a sales post up pretty soon.  ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

Thanks! So uh, I’m gonna disclaimer that this is only my interpretation based on what I saw + have seen others say about this. Also I’m screencapping the ask and making a new post because I’m a mobile user who doesn’t use anything like xkit. The tl;dr is basically to pay really close attention to Victor’s expressions. (Also for others muh original post was [here])

So when Yuuri went into the store, Victor almost definitely thought that Yuuri was buying rings to blatantly propose to him. As in an overt, no getting around it “WILL YOU MARRY ME” sort of proposal. I mean looked at Victor’s expressions

Notice how shocked and arguably touched best boy Victor looks.

Then Yuuri drops the “good luck” line. Importantly, in Japanese it is the exact second Yuuri uses the word   おまじない which literally translates to “good luck charm.” Anyway, it is hard to tell in still images but if you listen closely Victor audibly gasps and story boards show that his internal thoughts were “So this is what he means.” [edit: yes good luck charms in this sense have a specific cultural context that doesn’t equate to the western concept exactly, but that’s not what I’m here to get into]

But nonetheless, the implications are still there because even someone as dense as Yuuri has to know exactly what he’s doing, and Victor must know that. So Victor later clarifies this in the later scene. Some people write it off as Victor joking but given the context of both what Victor must be thinking and how the scenario is presented that seriously makes no sense whatsoever and i could write a whole essay on why I hate that interpretation  maybe I will

B Movies

At some point, Yuuri learns that Victor has never seen a bad movie in his life.

“We didn’t watch movies growing up, we went to the cinema,” Victor sniffs with an exaggerated air. It turns out that Victor’s list of movies he’s actually seen is incredibly short: a handful of Russian classics, some of the most well-known American movies from the ‘50s and ‘60s, and more than a few French films with pretentiously long titles.

“Oh my God,” Yuuri says, reaching for Victor’s laptop and pulling up Netflix. “We’ll start with the western ones, you’re not ready for weird Japanese movies yet.”

Victor reads the title on the screen. “The Attack of the 50 Foot Woman? That sounds dumb.”

“That’s the point,” Yuuri replies, slightly exasperated. He lets the movie start as he gets up and goes into the kitchen to pour them both a glass of wine.

Twenty minutes into the movie, Victor turns to Yuuri with a frown. “Is this suppose to be funny? It’s not funny.”

“You’re not drunk enough yet,” Yuuri says, and tops off Victor’s glass.

Three hours and two bottles of wine later, Yuuri finally lets them move on to a Japanese movie he remembers from his childhood. Victor starts giggling at the terrible special effects and cheesy acting before the characters on screen have managed to get out more than a paragraph’s worth of lines. Yuuri has the English subtitles on, which makes everything seem even cornier.

“This is the best movie ever,” Victor says, throwing an arm around his fiancé. “A true delight! A masterpiece of comedy!”

“I don’t think that was the point,” Yuuri mutters, but he can’t contain his giggles either.  Victor takes another long sip from his wine glass. He’s lost all his clothes.

Legally Blonde (USA, 2001)

Predictions: Nothing to predict. We have both seen this movie a number of times.

Plot: Reese Witherspoon has a great life. She is the president of her sorority at Fake UCLA, and she’s about to get engaged to her boyfriend, Harvard-Law-School-bound Matthew Davis. But then, HLSB Matthew Davis turns out to be a dickbag who dumps her because she’s not a Vanderbilt. He needs a Jackie and she’s a Marilyn, you guys.

Naturally, like any self-respecting woman, Reese Witherspoon hatches a plan. She’ll just get into Harvard Law School herself and show him the error of his ways. What do you mean, that seems difficult and/or implausible?? She can do anything with her fuzzy pink pen! And, indeed, she…succeeds???? You go, Reese Witherspoon, although we are…surprised.

At Harvard, Reese Witherspoon unsurprisingly does not fit in. Man, those Harvard Law students. Just so judgmental and tweed-y. She gets kicked out of class for not being prepared, is scorned by Matthew Davis’s fancy new/old/other/better girlfriend Selma Blair, and is just generally mocked all around. So terrible here in Cambridge. She should just go back to the pool or whatever. But then, one day, sick of not being taken seriously, she decides to buckle down and study. And lo and behold, before you know it, she’s impressing people left and right! Along with Selma Blair, Matthew Davis, and somebody else, she gets picked for Professor Victor Garber’s fancy internship. He’s representing Ali Larter, ex-sorority girl and current exercise icon, who’s on trial for the murder of her husband, and needs some extra intern hands.

Some twists and turns ensue, but basically, Reese Witherspoon uses her sorority connections, deep knowledge of fashion/hair/whatever, and plucky go-getter personality to prove Ali Larter innocent. It was Permed Linda Cardellini all along, guys!!!! *GASP* Along the way, Reese Witherspoon is validated by Professor Holland Taylor, gets hit on by Professor Victor Garber (gross), and forms a rapport with Luke Wilson, one of Victor Garber’s associates. Not in that order. She and Selma Blair also have a will-they-won’t-they…friendship? while Matthew Davis gets his comeuppance in the form of a) rejection by both Reese Witherspoon and Selma Blair and b) his own mediocrity. He was WAIT-LISTED AT HARVARD, YOU GUYS. DID YOU KNOW???? We must all shun him the next time we see him at the yacht club.

Also, Reese Witherspoon has a well-dressed Chihuahua, who’s in, like, every scene, and a weird friend from the nail salon (Jennifer Coolidge), whom she helps to get her dog back and get her groove on with the UPS guy. The end!

Best Scene: When Reese Witherspoon wins her case, of course! Although there is no way she would be allowed to just ramble on like that in an actual courtroom during a cross-examination, we love that somehow her total lack of a plan works out, and we love the whole courtroom (until the turning point) being like, GOD, WE GET IT, LINDA CARDELLINI WAS IN THE SHOWER.

Worst Scene: When Professor Victor Garber hits on Reese Witherspoon. Victor Garber is a treasure. Nobody wants to see him being a lech. :(

Best Line: “Oh, Warner, I’ve waited so long to hear you say that – but if I’m gonna be a partner in a law firm by the time I’m thirty, I’m gonna need a boyfriend who’s not such a complete bonehead.” – Reese Witherspoon, capping off her courtroom victory by dumping Matthew Davis for good. Just one of many shining moments in this film, which, lbr, is basically iconic line after iconic line, so how could we really choose??

Worst Line: Weeeeeell. This movie is a classic, which also means it’s kind of old, so you do have those moments of being like, “Oh dear…this was back when the word ‘retard’ was still acceptable-ish.” It is no longer acceptable, guys, in case anyone was still wondering.

Highlights of the Watching Experience: Awwww, look at adorable, young, early-'00s Reese Witherspoon! Meanwhile, here we are in 2017, looking forward to her next romcom, in which she’s a 40-something cougar/MILF, and we dearly hope that she gets back together with her ex (and that he’s a good person), rather than ending up with, you know, whoever is 2017’s Justin Long. Also, how come Luke Wilson never looks fully happy? What tragedy struck you in your past, Luke Wilson, that you still have not overcome?? Will the eternally optimistic and unrealistically successful Reese Witherspoon be able to fill this dark void in your heart????

How Many POC in the Film: Black judge. Asian nail-salon worker (but oddly, side-by-side with a white nail-salon worker????). Gay Latino cabana boy. Miscellaneous people with no lines.

Alternate Scenes: Although we are not generally interested in movies about manpain, we would be interested in a sequel (or a prequel??) about Luke Wilson’s inner darkness. We would also be interested in the alternate film about Reese Witherspoon and Selma Blair’s romance. We love, LOVE that they became best friends. But we would also love it if they kissed.

Was the Poster Better or Worse than the Film: Comparable. Although from afar poster!Reese Witherspoon looks a bit like an airline stewardess dragging some tiny pink dog-luggage, by and large, this poster accurately describes this movie.

Score: 8.5 out of 10 bright pink smooches. A very well-constructed movie, although maybe we should not have watched it as a romcom?? We are sitting here now, unsure why we chose to include this movie but exclude, for instance, Miss Congeniality. Seems like a random cracking of the whip, but too late, it happened. Maybe now we can use this mistake to justify future mistakes, such as permitting ourselves to watch Miss Congeniality instead of whatever next Jason-Biggs piece of trash should come up in our list. (No offense to Jason Biggs, who seems probably nice enough in real life, but his agent has terrible taste in films.)

Ranking: 7, out of the 81 movies we’ve seen so far. Take that, 68% Rotten Tomatoes score!!!! WHAT GARBAGE PEOPLE ARE ON ROTTEN TOMATOES, RATING LEGALLY BLONDE 68% AND MISS CONGENIALITY 42%???? What are you even doing watching Miss Congeniality, if you are the kind of person who is only going to enjoy it 42%???? NO ONE TOLD YOU THIS MOVIE WOULD BE CITIZEN KANE.

Yuri!!! On ice actor AU

(I will never not love this AU)

*Offset Yurio and Yuuri are total bros.
*JJ has a habit of striking his character’s pose at every interview
*Victor messes up his lines the most during serious scenes such as the parking garage one (they had to do 45 takes of this one)
*Everyone loves playing the “Make Otabek break character” game
*Emil and Mickey are the set trolls and have been known to “misplace” a lot of props
*The cast gave JJ a sweatshirt that says “King fuckboi” on it
*Yuuri has been known to sing “hello darkness my old friend” when he forgets his lines during sad scenes and everyone looses it
*Georgie is a drama queen offset and it is a sight to see
*Chris actually knew how to pole dance before the show. He taught Yuuri for the banquet scene, but he ended up with an entire class consisting of Victor, JJ, Emil, and Mickey
*Phichit is notoriously known for pranking everyone, especially Yuuri
*During an interview with Yurio, he was asked what’s it like to play his character and he responded, “It’s tiring because I play this salty character who has no chill, but at the same time it’s funny because he’s also the exact opposite of the grace he tries to achieve on ice”
*Victor and Yuuri started dating after episode 7
*Otabek and JJ pulled a huge prank on the cast and crew by swapping costumes and acting out each other’s characters
*Leo and Phichit have beat boxing battles in hair and makeup
*Guang-Hong has to stop himself from laughing every time someone yells Victory because of Yuuri and Victor’s ship name
*Everyone in cast and crew ships Victor and Yuuri
*Minami is actually the best at memorizing his lines
*When yurio messes up his lines he usually drops to his knees and starts cackling and it takes a good five to ten minutes for him to get his shit together
*JJ, Chris, and Emil almost never fuck up their lines and everyone is just so amazed that they can keep their cool while playing such eccentric characters
*Victor and Chris are best bros offset.
*Yuuri actually got really wasted for the banquet scene so he could be in perfect character. Needless to say he had a horrible hangover the next day and the day after.
*Leo is like the animal whisperer to all the animals. If they seem stressed the crew will ask Leo to help calm them down
*The miniature poodle Vicchan was actually Maccachin’s puppy, but he grew too quickly so they decided to use him as a double for his mom during certain scenes.
*Victor and Yuuri adopted Vicchan and Maccachin after the show wrapped up
*Emil has a huge crush on Mickey and everyone knows it
*Phichit and Chris make bets on when Victor would propose to Yuuri (Phichit won because he bet Victor would wait till after the show ended)
*Yurio and Otabek do lip sync battles to the sp and fs songs that have lyrics and they end up both loosing to Georgie’s fs song because they can’t stop thinking of how hilarious the scene was
*Georgie does his own makeup

Fatherhood

A/N: Victor Creed fluff about him being a father. Some reader x Victor Creed. I just thought it was a cute idea. This is my first time writing Victor so hopefully it’s ok. 😁 Comments are always appreciated.

Victor groaned and mumbled, as he shifted in bed, rolling over on to his stomach. He could feel someone nudging his side. Victor pulled a pillow over his head, and growled loudly as a warning. However, his efforts were ignored by the tiny child, who then climbed on top of bed and started jumping.

Half the World Away

Phichuuri Week Day 3 - Mutual Pining

Honestly, Phichit wasn’t entirely surprised when Yuuri called him a month into moving in with Victor, choking back sobs down the phone. His heart ached, but he wasn’t surprised.

“I-I think he h-hates me.”

Phichit fluttered his eyes shut, listening quietly to Yuuri’s soft sobs down the phone line. He wondered what it was this time, what Victor had said - or hadn’t said - to send his best friend into a spiral of panic. Poor Yuuri. It wasn’t the first time either. But hearing Yuuri’s crying for himself was very different to just knowing it was happening half the world away through his best friend’s emotional texts.

“He doesn’t hate you,” Phichit said firmly. Because it was true. “You’re just getting used to each other. It takes time, okay? Remember how long it took us to get used to living together?”

A strangled chuckle answered him.

Something in Phichit’s heart constricted at the sound. “Just give it time,” he breathed, the invisible rubber band around his chest pulling tight. “He loves you. And you love him.”

And not me , Phichit added silently in his head.

Operation cookies

A dark brown eye peered over the couch to see her babysitters laying fast asleep in front of a giant screen that flashed “GAME OVER” over and over again. She got down and joined the rest of her group.

“Alright team, the adults are down,” the seven year old Lian Harper-Nugyen whispered.

“Excellent,” Mar'i Grayson’s eyes flashed an excited green, “Then let’s begin operation ‘cookies’.”

“I dunno guys,” a five year old Alex Stone shook his head, “Maybe we souldn’t do this. What if we get in trouble?”

Both girls rolled their eyes, “We’re not going to get caught. Uncle Gar, Drake, and your dad sleep like the dead, and my dad is with Uncle Wally and baby Alex so they’ll be gone for a while. Besides I can float right up to the top of the counter to get to the cookie jar.”

“But what about her?” Alex pointed to the carpeted play area where Chloe was watching them, both hands lathered in her drool as she sucked on them.

“Psh, what’s she gonna do? She’s a baby.” Lian scoffed, “Let’s go.” The black haired girl definately had her mothers spunk. They got to their feet and scurried to the kitchen. “Alright, Alex, keep watch, Mar'i, your up. Literally.”

Mar'i tapped into her joy that gave her the power of flight and began to float to the top of the kitchen counter where their prize awaited. But suddenly she stopped and began bouncing in mid-air. She reached up her stubby little arms, but she was still much to far away.

“What’s wrong Mar'i?” Lian asked impatiently.

“I can’t float that high.” Mar'i continued to bounce as if to propell herself upward, but she couldn’t make it.

Alex pulled on Lian’s arm, but she shook him off. “I told you this is a bad idea.”

“Oh grow up you baby. Mar'i come get me and we’ll float up together.” Mar'i went back to Lian, but lifting her onto her shoulder’s only kept her closer to the ground.

“Ugh, it’s not gonna work.”

Lian “hmm’d” and looked around. “Oh In know use her!” Lian pointed her little index finger at Chloe, who was still sucking on her hands.

Mar'i floated to the baby girl. “Chloe, do you want to help auntie Mar'i?” Chloe blinked in response. “I shall take that as a yes.” The five year old Mar'i held Chloe underneath her armpits and lifted her, with ease, to the cookie jar.

“Hurry Mar'i.” Lian urged.

“Okay Chloe, get the cookies.” Mar'i pushed the pink headed baby towards the cookie jar, but for the moment was just staring then started slapping the top of the cabinet around the cookie jar and babbeling.

“Ba ba da sa! Ba da ba ACHOO!” The dust her slapping had kicked up had triggered a sneeze, pushing Mar'i away from the cookie jar and forced her back to the ground.

“Sorry, but it looks like this mission-” The toddlers were suddenly distracted by Chloe giggling and clapping happily, and very loudly.

“What’s she laughing at?” Alex asked.

Mar'i followed the babies line of sight to the kitchen cabinet. “OH X'HAL!” A kitchen cabinet that was on fire.

The group of toodlers began scrambling about the kitchen. Alex and Lian attempted to reach the sink to get some water, but were too short to reach the sink. Mar'i finally found the fire extinguisher underneath the sink, but was finding it difficult to float the heavy device to the heigth that she needed it to, and the little fire starter sat on the kitchen table clapping and laughing without a care in the world. Finally Mar'i and floated to a high enough height to use the fire extinguisher against the ever growing flames. With the pin pulled she squeezed the lever.

“WHOAWHOAWHOAWHAOWOOOOOOOOW!”

The five year old half-alien was propelled by the spraying foam sending her flying all around the living room, screaming as she did so. The foam blanketed her babysitters waking them from their junk food and video game induced slumber to an black haired, green-eyed toodler zipping around the living room with a fire extinguisher rocket.

“WHAT THE-”

“-HOW DID-”

“-WHY IS-”

Victor, Drake, and Garfield leapt from the couch taking in the sight of a screaming and crying Alex, a screaming Lian, Mar'i rocketing across the ops room, showering everything in foam, a kitchen quickly catching on fire, and a laughing baby Chloe.

With more curses being uttered, the men leapt into action. Drake smothered the flames, Victor got the children to safety, and Garfield got Mar'i and by the time the toodlers and baby were safely nestled onto the couch, the common room, children, and the three adults were covered in foam, with some of the kitchen a smoldering mess.

It was clear who started the fire, seeing as how Chloe was still giggling, but the real question was, “How on earth did she get up that high?” Drake asked in bewilderment.

Victor and Garfield were wondering the same thing, but all Victor had to do was glare at his adoptive son and he cracked like a almond.

“Remind me never to rob a bank with you.” Lian scowled.

“Hey, he did the right thing,” said Victor. “But right now we need-” He suddenly went pale, his brain forgetting how to breathe.

“Vic?” Garfield waved his hand in front of his best friends face, “You alright?”

“No Gar,” Drake answered, “No he’s not.” Drake was looking at the same thing Victor was, so Gar followed their line of sight and his heart stopped instantly.

Tonight was the night of Raven’s babyshower, but instead of having it at the tower, they held it at Raven’s new home while the men watched the children at the tower. Having lost track of time, they hadn’t realized that the shower was over, and the mothers had returned to gather their children, who were now staring at the carnage in front of them with large eyes and mouths on the floor. Raven herself had come with them to see the young one’s, but she too narrowed her eyes at the men who had shirked their responsibilities.

Her husband cleared his throat. “So Rae, how was the shower?”

Summary:

somehow, somewhere along the way, a line had blurred into something less distinct, and yuri had come to the sudden realization that maybe he was in love with his best friend.

but of course, he’d had to realize it at the worst possible time.

(a study of otabek and yuri’s friendship as the years pass, and how it changes into something new)

Sara wipes tears from her eyes, still shaking with laughter, and lays her free hand on his shoulder as she turns him so that she can look him dead in the eyes. “You’ve got it bad, kid. I can’t believe you haven’t realized you’re in love with him yet,” she wheezes, doubling over a little.

His eyes go wide. “No, you’ve got it all wrong, he’s my best friend―”

“You need to be a little more self aware,” she cuts in, expression morphing into something a little more sympathetic as the laughter starts to subside. “Yuri, when Mila and I walked over, you were looking at him like he was the sun or something. That’s not a look you give your best friend, I’m sorry to burst your bubble.”


can u believe im back AGAIN with a new chapter? i can’t either, but it’s true

gardeninglifegoals  asked:

Hello! I love your analyses of all my fave yoi fanfics. So, what are your theories about what's coming in the next chapter of TBFE? I've read Adele's teaser conversation between Yuuri and Yakov and was very surprised. I can't imagine any scenario in which Yakov doesn't tell Yuuri to stay away from Victor. As his coach, he has to look out for Vic's career and being involved with an escort can't be good for him. What are your thoughts? Thanks!

I have literally NO IDEA.  Because TBFE keeps surprising me.  Every chapter I think ‘well this is quite sweet actually, things aren’t going horribly wrong, in fact they’re generally sort of improving… so soon things have got to go REALLY BAD’.  And then every chapter it doesn’t happen.  

So, pretty much everything that happens surprises me.  I mean, look at the last chapter.  I did not see any of that coming.  I didn’t see the conversation in the restaurant, or that argument they had in the hotel room (which was super good).  I didn’t see Yuuri confessing his skating past.  I could probably have guessed that they’d end up having sex at some point, but that’s hardly a revelation.  I did not see Yakov appearing to stir things up at the end.  

Talking of Yakov- if I HAD to guess what he’s going to say it would be something along the lines of ‘Stop seeing Victor or I’m going to call your mother and tell her what you’re getting up to’.  But then, like you said, the preview… well.  Maybe Yakov’s going to be all nice and ‘look, I can see you’re nervous but don’t be.  I want what’s best for Victor and he obviously really likes you so let’s talk about what’s going on and see if we can come to an understanding’.

(And maybe in the meantime Meredith Thorton will have been run over by a bus.)

This is why this fic is so addictive.  I just cannot guess what’s happening next.  Every time I think ‘oh, surely this/that/something else is going to happen’… it doesn’t.  (I still think something bad is going to happen soon, though.  Seriously.  That reminds me, I have a little post about this- I’ll try to put it up later).

“Did you ever do palm reading?”

The question catches Yuuri off guard from where he’s lying in Victor’s lap, both of them lying on the couch. Yuuri takes a moment to remember what he was doing, really all they’ve been doing has been lying on the couch watching TV since they had a long day at the rink. (Yuuri did, Victor, not as much. Victor had more of a long day of torturing Yuuri with new choreography for upcoming programs.)

Yuuri then looks down and finds his fingers tangled with Victor’s, their hands kind of dancing with each other, moving together as if they’re doing some weird handshake. Yuuri hadn’t even realized he had been doing it, so he just frowns.

“Well, I’m not a psychic,” he tells Victor who laughs a little and shakes his head.

“When you were younger, in school. Kids would take your hand and pretend to read your palm based off the lines on it,” Victor explains, taking Yuuri’s hand and turning it over, palm to the ceiling. He swipes the pad of his thumb over the center of it. “Did you ever do that?” Victor goes on. Yuuri lets his head fall back against Victor’s chest.

“Now that you mention it, I guess. Yuuko and I would do that every now and then,” Yuuri said.

“Were you ever any good?”

Yuuri raises an eyebrow.

“I told you, I’m not a psychic,” Yuuri points out.

“You don’t have to be psychic to be good at it,” Victor argues. Yuuri blinks.

“What makes you good at it then?” Yuuri inquires. He feels Victor shrug against him.

“Not so sure really,” Victor sighs. Yuuri’s about to speak up, but Victor stops him. “Read my palm and I’ll tell you if you’re any good.”

Episode 27B: Momma's Little Ed

Today’s title refers to the phrase “Momma’s Little Boy/Girl/Baby/etc.” It’s about Ed and Eddy forging sticky notes from Edd’s parents as a prank.  This episode doesn’t have the emotional depth of the other season 3 premiere, ‘Wish You Were Ed’, and its cruel premise may impair the comedy for some, but it’s still a perfect example of this season’s interest in building stories off of the show’s world rather than scams.  More than any other season, we will see tons of plots centered around previously minor elements– so far we’ve seen an episode about Rolf’s country, now one about Edd’s sticky notes, and later on this season will give us the only stories that take advantage of Eddy’s brother as an off-screen character before the movie.

This title card reminds me of ‘Rock-a-Bye Ed’, another season 3 episode that deepens the show’s lore.

Leorai Week/ Day Six / Evil AU

Prompt: Evil AU so have some FOOT! Leo. 

Verse: IDW Comics, if the City Fall arc had ended just a bit differently…

Rated: T

Words: 2300

Karai stood, arms across her armored chest plate, eyes narrowed. As if she had nothing else to do but to stand about being irate. She gave her scarlet scarf a perfunctory yank, stopping when the it hung limp about her neck, then tossed it over her shoulder in irritation. Tapping a booted foot on the wooden dojo floor, she watched. And she waited.

The kunoichi leaned back against the wall, not giving a damn if he thought she was petulant. She was only there because the Shredder had ordered her to be. Her grandfather wanted her relationship with Leonardo to be more…collaborative. Cooperative, he had said. It was “necessary” for the next phase in his plan for the Foot. Their relationship should be less “antagonistic”. Leonardo was the second in command, after all. Karai let out a sigh of exasperation and the huff of her breath stirred the black hair that hung around her face. As if she needed yet another reason to resent her grandfather.

The Shredder had given the most prized position in the clan to a boy who hadn’t even earned it. Didn’t even want it. Three years later, that boy had become a man, but Karai still refused to reconcile her grandfather’s decision. Not when she had dedicated her entire life to serving the Foot. Not when she wanted to be his Chunin so badly she could taste it. She could still taste it. Ambition and lust were as hot and metallic as blood in her mouth.

Across the dojo, Leonardo executed a flawless kick, knocking a freshly recruited Foot solider flat on their back. Karai rolled her eyes as their sai skidded across the polished wood floor. Overkill. Yet she still allowed her gaze to drift back to the dojo floor. She made it a point to feign disinterest as she surveyed the crowd of gaping new recruits.

Though Karai would never admit it, the turtle cut an imposing figure in his dark mask and red and black plated Foot Clan armor. Their clan symbol shown a bright blood red across his shoulder, just below the  ghastly scar shot up his neck to his face; the unassailable marker of his loyalty. It should have killed him. He should have died that night, yet there he stood. The black wrappings that snaked up his body emphasized the musculature of legs and arms. She realized that he was so much broader now, with the svelte frame of a man instead of a boy. He was taller than when he had come to them years ago, as well. The turtle stood nearly a head taller than she did, even in her boots. Leonardo was almost sort of good looking, now that he wasn’t so laughably small. Karai’s brow furrowed and she shook her head. He has always been your enemy, she thought. Never forget that.

Okay, so I’m seeing people call the Victor-Yurio hug scene manipulative and I’m calling BS. For starters, Victor only told Yakov that he wanted to return to ice-skating; it’s Yurio who asks/mentions the possibility of Yuuri retiring. If Victor had been trying to manipulate Yurio into convincing Yuuri not to retire, wouldn’t Victor have mentioned Yuuri’s potential retirement from the start?

As for Victor’s line “Think about what you really want” (?), I saw that as encouragement for Yurio to do his best. Because remember, Victor designed Yurio’s SP, so in a way, Yurio’s one of his students. And wouldn’t a coach want his students to do well? Whether or not Victor believed Yurio would get gold is up for debate, but he was definitely encouraging him, not telling him to try to convince Yuuri to stay.

Third, as another user pointed out (another user whose name I sadly can’t remember), Victor didn’t exactly have the mental state to plan anything. The night before, Yuuri unwittingly told him that he would have to return to the skating world alone, to face the high expectations, the loneliness, and the isolation once again (but worse this time around, because this would be after discovering love and life). And while Yuuri thought this was a “If-you-love-them-let-them-go” kind of deal, Victor probably felt that Yuuri doubted the strength and extent of his love/didn’t take their relationship seriously at all (given how easily Yuuri said this, how willing Yuuri seemed to let Victor go), which only worsened the (very sudden) blow. And this is before the free skate, where Yuuri pours out all his love and gratitude for Victor, which just gave him even more feels (more love for Yuuri, a desire to carry out Yuuri’s wishes, and even more pain at having to do so). Victor was so shaken the entire episode that the newscasters noticed, and we’re talking about a man who’s very skilled at protecting a happy, perfect image for his audience. If he can’t keep it together for the public, what makes you think he can come up with a scheme?

Fourth, assuming that Victor could pull the wool over Yurio’s eyes is an insult to Yurio’s intelligence. He’s a very observant kid. I think he would notice if Victor was plotting something.

Lastly, trying to manipulate Yuuri into staying by having Yurio get gold would have been a very risky gamble, too risky a gamble. Because, yeah, Yuuri hates to lose, but his self-esteem issues make him very prone to demotivation when others beat him/do better than him. (A part of me had been very worried that Yuuri would misinterpret Yurio’s plea to not retire as a sign that he wasn’t good enough to keep competing. Thankfully, Yurio’s message was loud and clear.) And after all that effort to build Yuuri’s confidence, encourage him to make his own decisions, and show just how big and strong his support system was, it would make absolutely no sense for Victor to risk destroying him. (And if you think it does, you need to revisit the car park scene in episode 7, where Victor internally freaks out after hurting Yuuri by accident.)

TLDR: Victor wasn’t trying to be manipulative when he hugged and encouraged Yurio. He was just very vulnerable and comfort-seeking. Yurio decided to take matters into his own hands and make sure Yuuri kept competing.

5

I’m really curious what Yuuri might have seen to make him look away. I mean. The first few times he did see Victor naked he didn’t even look away. I guess you could say that he was in a state of shock from the first episode. And on the third episode it was probably because he was dead tired from training and thinking long and hard about what “Eros” was to him. And maybe becasue Yuri was also there?

But there really must be a reason why Yuuri looked away. He looked pretty surprised. Shocked. As if he wasnt’ expecting Victor to be doing stretches on the onsen. But they’ve probably taken baths together a lot of times already since Victor wanted to get to know Yuuri more. And I bet he made it into some bonding experience saying something between the lines “Bathing is one of the best ways to learn more about a person that’s why we should always take a bath together!” Let’s not forget the fact that Victor actually invites Yuuri to take a bath with him as if its expected. He says it so naturally and with such confidence.

So why did Yuuri feel the need to look away? And dam my perverted mind could only think of one thing and I’m laughing pretty hard about it. Because HOLY COWS OF APOLLO, VICTOR. WTH?!
