i know it’s kind of a meme in the fandom that viktor thought making A SCENE and greeting yuuri naked in japan but i think that was completely unintentional? which makes it even funnier imo?
allow me to explain
i don’t know exactly how long after yuuri’s video went viral that this scene happens, but it’s safe to say that at least a couple of days passed? perhaps a week or a bit more, even though the anime makes it look like it’s on the next day?
so he’s been avoiding the media for days, keeping his phone off so absolutely nobody’s going to be able to reach him until people forget about this madness
which means he’s also entirely clueless about the rumors of viktor being his coach
and it makes it so much funnier because we know yuuri’s dad doesn’t know jack shit about figure skating, and viktor doesn’t know how to speak japanese AND IT WAS PROBABLY TOSHIYA WHO FIRST TALKED TO VIKTOR WHEN HE ARRIVED AT YU-TOPIA?
TOSHIYA IF YOU’D ONLY GET INTO YOUR SON’S ROOM, LOOKED AROUND AND DID THE MATH YOU WOULD KNOW
so what has happened was probably something like “i have no idea what you’re saying mr. foreign-dude but you’re probably here for our famous onsen so yes make yourself comfortable” which viktor, tired as fuck from his travel (a long ass flight from st. petersburg to tokyo, probably? plus the train from tokyo to hasetsu?) GLADLY ACCEPTS
hell yeah i’m going to enjoy the fuck out of his hot spring
since yuuri is nowhere to be seen why not take some time to relax after a long travel, am i right
it’s not like viktor would understand if yuuri’s parents were to say “oh yes yuuri is holed up in his bedroom but he’ll come out eventually” so as viktor is pretty sure he found the right place and that yuuri is there he’ll just wait and have a nice soak meanwhile
AND THEN YUURI JUST BARGES INTO THE ROOM WHERE VIKTOR IS BATHING
well, this was not how i had planned this to go but here you are?
AND OF COURSE, STANDING UP WAS COMPLETELY UNNECESSARY BUT VIKTOR BASICALLY INVENTED BEING EXTRA AND… LET ME SHOW YOU MY HOT BOD BECAUSE I GOT TO SEE YOUR ALMOST-EVERYTHING AT THE BANQUET SO I THINK IT’S FAIR YOU GET TO SEE ME NOW AM I RIGHT???
in viktor’s mind, yuuri is this extroverted, outgoing party animal he got to know at the banquet and was absolutely mesmerized by, so he probably thinks yuuri’s going to be alright with this extra introduction? also knowing yuuri lives and probably worked at the onsen for a while viktor maybe just assumes he’s probably unfazed by nudity?
I keep thinking how knowing Even had a crush on
Isak the first day he saw him changes the whole dynamic of the story, or at
least it does to me.
first times we see Isak and Even sharing glances (first in the cafeteria, then
outside, then at the kosegruppa meeting) I thought Even was this type of guy
who looks at you in the coolest way ever just because he feels he is able to
get your attention.
When they met in the bathroom and Even did the
most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen anyone do when they are flirting with
someone, I thought he was just being a pain in the ass since he noticed Isak
always looking at him and he wanted the attention I guessed he thought he
And then in the bench… Well, that scene kind of
threw my theory out of the window, because Even totally lost his coolness: he
was almost shy and nervous. But I guess I was too caught up by his looks and appearance
I didn’t really pay attention.
But Even confessing Isak he saw him the very
first day at school and that he went to the kosegruppa meeting just to meet
Isak made me realize all those times weren’t about Even being cool, they were
about Even trying to look cool. It was always about a boy doing embarrassing and
not-so-slick things to get the other boy’s attention. When I thought Isak was
getting caught by Even staring at him, it was actually Even trying to act laid
back when he realized his crush was looking at him. When Even approached Isak
on the hallway to ask him if he was going to the Halloween party, it wasn’t him
being casual, it was him being hopeful. When Even suggested Isak going to the
pool, it wasn’t him recreating his favorite movie scene just to be the coolest
guy, it was him planning the whole thing to finally act on his feelings for his
And you know why just a simple scene was able
to threw away what I thought was real? Because Skam just doesn’t make seasons
from one character’s perspective in order for us to get to really know them,
Skam does it to show that not everything is what we think it is: we don’t see
life at it is, we see it in our own way. And that’s as beautiful as it is
scary, isn’t it?
I imagine this is what was happening during the last five minutes of Supernatural. This is Totally Serious Business here. Also, this scene unfolded in my mind’s eye in Scout’s comic style, so… VERRA SEREUS BISNESS!
SCENE: Somewhere on a beach, probably in Hawaii
Chuck and Amara recline on lounge chairs, sipping fancy cocktails watching the sun set over the water. Various happy couples stroll past while Chuck basks in the fact that Amara is finally beginning to appreciate the wonder of creation with him.
Amara, meanwhile is feeling out her old bond with Dean, waiting to feel his surprise and happiness the moment he finds his mother. She hopes he’s pleased with her gift, now that she understands how much losing her had cost him throughout his life.
Amara suddenly sits bolt-upright in her chair. The shock of pain wasn’t what she’d been expecting to feel from Dean, but then she realizes she wasn’t feeling Dean’s reaction, but the far more tenuous connection through Dean to Cas.
She has a split second to wonder if Dean could feel it too, but then she feels his surprise. He’s found Mary, and is absolutely stunned. If he didn’t feel Castiel being banished, then she’ll just have to take care of this on her own.
All of this takes place in just a fraction of a second. She’s about to say something to Chuck, but then he sits up beside her, sloshing his drink down his front and then snapping himself dry.
“Me dammit,” Chuck shouts.
And Amara, for just a moment, wonders if he’s upset about his drink. But sadly, no.
“We haven’t even been gone two whole hours yet, and already those idiots are in trouble again.”
Amara and Chuck exchange glance, coming to a wordless understanding that would translate as, “I’ll handle the angel if you’ll take care of the moose man.” And then the poof away from their relaxing vacation.
Amara finds Cas swimming toward shore off the Galapagos Islands. She snaps him to the beach, dries him off, and as soon as he gets his bearings and realizes who it was who’d helped him, he tries to take a step back, suddenly very concerned that Dean’s sacrifice had been in vain. He trips over an iguana and lands on the sand on his back.
Amara helps him to his feet, and Cas warily accepts.
“What happened to Dean?” he asks. “If you’re still here, and the sun is fixed…”
“Dean found a better way,” Amara says. “My brother and I are reunited, and Dean has just been reunited with his mother.”
Cas’s face falls at this, because of course Dean would want to visit his mother in heaven. Amara sees this, and is confused.
“Did I not do the right thing? Bringing his mother back to him?”
“Back?” Cas asks. “You mean, Dean’s not dead?”
And then Amara realizes her critical error. She should’ve returned Dean to all of his family, because they had no way to know he’d survived.
“I think I may have arranged this poorly. I can fix it, though,” she mutters to herself, and then with a wave of her hand Cas finds himself standing in the woods with Mary and Dean.
“Cas?” Dean asks, turning from his mother to see the bewildered angel standing beside him.
And then he’s being swept up into another crushing hug from Cas.
“Gee, Cas. Two hugs in one day. This is some kinda record…”
BACK AT THE BUNKER:
Sam sees Cas whoosh away from this stranger’s banishing spell, and fumbles to reach the gun tucked into his waistband. He’s too late. The shock of finding an enemy in the bunker when it was supposed to be their home, was supposed to be safe, was just too much in his already compromised state.
And yeah, she’s an enemy, because anyone who introduces herself by banishing your friend and pulling a gun on you in your own home qualifies as an enemy.
He slowly advances on her, trying to make her see reason, or at least get close enough to make a grab for her gun. He doesn’t count on her actually being willing to shoot him… but she is.
She looks shocked about the fact too, but she looks even more shocked when the bullet stops in mid-air and just hangs there.
“I swear to me, Sam, I can’t leave you guys alone for five minutes. And here I’d just told your brother the world would be safe in your hands. And where is he anyway. I thought Amara sent him home.”
Chuck stares up at the ceiling as if it held all the answers, while Sam sidesteps out from in front of the bullet still hanging in the air in front of him. Lady Toni is just looking back and forth between the bullet and this new guy who popped in like it was nothing. Nothing is supposed to be able to breach the bunker’s wards, but here he is, defying centuries of Men of Letters scholarly pursuits and protections.
“Ah, I see,” Chuck says after a moment. “Dean’ll be here shortly with a little surprise for you.” He smiles at Sam, now in on the secret. “He’s out back in the woods. It’s a bit of a hike, but he’s got Cas with him now. That angel’s as good as a compass.”
“Dean’s alive?” Sam says, forgetting for a moment all about the bullet and the lady who just tried to kill him with it.
Chuck’s smile widens into a grin. “Yep, all’s right with the universe again. You have my word on it.”
“I’ll be the judge of that,” Toni cuts in. “Just who are you to make that kind of declaration?”
Sam stares at her for a moment, and then starts laughing so hard he can barely breathe. This entire situation is just too absurd.
“Oh, right, introductions!” Chuck says, extending a hand for Lady Toni to shake. “Pleased to meet you, Lady Toni Bevell, you can call me Chuck.”
“Chuck,” she replies skeptically. Instead of shaking his hand, she tries the angel banishing sigil again. Of course, nothing happens.
Chuck just grins at her and lowers his hand. “You can’t banish God with that little scribble.”
Toni looks at him in disbelief. “God. Are you telling me that you are God?”
Chuck just shrugs bashfully and then turns back to Sam. “Sorry to run out on you like this, but Amara’s waiting for me. We’ve got a dinner reservation in an hour in Honolulu.
“God needs dinner reservations?” Lady Toni sputters.
Chuck just shrugs, and then boops himself away leaving Sam cackling and Lady Toni absolutely baffled.
An Explanation of the “May Doma’s Blessings” joke/meme
(this time im not shitposting, the title is what youre actually getting)
I realized that myself and a few others have been making this joke over and over, but I also realize that barely any people have played/watched or read an LP of Gaiden so its an inside joke that excludes most of you. Apologies to people who (fairly) think explaining a joke ruins it but I feel too bad about being exclusive to not post this. And hey, maybe it will make some people who dont know Gaiden more comfortable to shitpost with us, and that seems cool to me. Boy I am really long-winded, heres the explanation:
“May Doma’s Blessings” is a boss death quote in the fan translation of Gaiden that most of us are familiar with. Thats it. But its funny to us for a few reasons:
Multiple bosses say it. 5 or 6 at least.
In a game where theres barely any story to begin with, you really want to learn something about the story or world or at least their Duma worship. But nope, you kill a boss and get “May Doma’s blessings” again.
For being only 3 words long its completely packed to the brim with comedy. Its what they say when you kill them, and I cant speak for what the original Japanese said, but youd expect it to be something like “God Damn you!” but because Duma is their god and “Duma Damn” would sound silly, then “Duma curse you!” but no, its “blessings” that they go with.
On top of that, its passive and an incomplete sentence. They dont say “Doma Bless You” or “Doma Bless Me” so we dont truly even know who is supposed to be getting the blessing because they ramble on and die mid sentence instead of getting to the point like you would expect from a dying man.
This is made funnier with the repetition of the quote from multiple bosses: none of these fools can finish this same damn sentence.
Finally, Doma got officially localized as Duma so now the one word that didnt used to be wrong is technically incorrect as well. Beautiful.
If Shadows of Valentia comes out and one of the bosses drops a “May Duma’s blessings….urk!” or something like that when you kill him then you’ll know that somebody up there in the treehouse loves us, or at least they know how to wink at English reading Gaiden fans without being too obvious about it.
ALRIGHT FOOLS LISTEN UP AND LET ME EXPLAIN MATSUNO KARAMATSU IN THIS NEW EVENT BECAUSE EVEN THOUGH I PROMISED MYSELF I WOULDN’T POST ANYTHING ABOUT IT BEFORE I FINISH THE LAST PART OF THE VAMPIRE EVENT, I JUST GOTTA ADDRESS THIS.
SO Y’ALL MAY THINK HE’S NOT AS PAINFUL AS HE COULD’VE BEEN ESPECIALLY AFTER THE MONSTROSITY OF THE VAMPIRE EVENT AND YEAH I AGREE WITH THAT
BUT THERE’S ANOTHER THING THAT’S ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE HERE SO ALLOW ME TO ELABORATE ON THE SCREENSHOT ABOVE (warnings: kinda long and a shit ton of rage directed towards karamatsu/the heso wars writers, which none of y’all should take seriously for the most part)
You know that last post got me thinking: what is up with the these alleged fans who don’t think Star Wars is funny? Don’t get me wrong: I absolutely am here for the Skywalker Family Drama (because hello I have a pulse) and the Kenobi Sads and the Lore but like…at the end of the day? Star Wars is ridiculous! It’s so delightfully humorous. How do people not see this?! Who are these guys and why don’t they want to actually have fun with any of this nonsense?
i just think its funny how kai is one of the least problematic idols, was considered one of the most beautiful faces in kpop, extremely talented and hardworking until he got a gf……. like ever since kaistal was announced this influx of hate towards him has grown and its just so weird? like were people just pretending to like him for the past 4 years or are they being ugly because hes happy? 🤔 inch resting
That was a rough day. …Just a testament to the working environment we have down in Georgia, I sat on a – before we walked out, I sat on an Igloo – and I didn’t want to walk out and start crying, I wanted to have already been flooded. I wanted the weight of her to show in my posture…So I sat on this Igloo and I just cried, you know, and I could see the feet of all of our crew walking back and forth. And I’m just looking at the ground…nobody bothered me, nobody threw rocks at me, you know? Nobody made fun of me, they just let me do my thing.
