aw shit it talks

thinking about it, this week’s episode did a lot to dispel any remaining fear i had about a power imbalance or ulterior motives in victor and yuuri’s relationship, and it’s basically because of one line.

because remember, we’ve only very recently started to hear victor’s internal dialogue, and it told us crucially here that this is exactly what victor was doing. not because of any malicious intent, sure; he was genuinely trying to help yuuri, and based on his own experiences, an extreme ultimatum like the one he presented to yuuri was the best that he could come up with. nonetheless, it was designed to manipulate yuuri in a way, to motivate him, to snap him out of his stress. 

and the thing is, even in a very well done story, that’s what we might reasonably have expected to happen: yuuri, filled with a new drive not to lose victor, someone he admires immensely, as his coach/friend/partner, delivers a stunning performance and all is resolved. that’s just how the trope seems to go.

instead, yuuri immediately sees through what victor was doing, recognizes it as out of character for victor’s coaching style and how he treats yuuri in general, and calls him the fuck out on it, because yeah, that’s unhealthy, it’s not okay, and yuuri knows it, knows that he’s in and deserves a relationship with mutual honesty and respect. 

regardless of his anxiety, his insecurities, this is not a relationship where yuuri is on thin ice, and it’s lovely to see.

Isak and Even hair drabble | what even is this tho?

I miss Isak, I miss Even…I wonder what they are doing right now…

I imagine that they are being goofy as always, showing their affection by arguing about something silly like 

OMG like Isak deciding that he wants to get a flipping haircut! And Even is just like NO !!!!! FUCKING !!! WAY !!!! BOI. He is literally so offended and I mean this actually turns super serious. Isak kinda just said it one day like “Ugh my hair is getting so long, and it’s so curly and so annoying and I just want to chop it all off” and Even’s all like “lol don’t do that baby, you would not pull of bald. You’d look like a cute baby egg” and then he just kisses his golden curls and Isak playfully slaps him away while grinning “Shut up! I would not, I’d look like a fucking king” 

Even just laughs and is like “sure baby” 

but then of course eventually it gets serious??? like Isak brings it up again one day, like Even mentions a film he wants to go see and Isak is like “Oh let me know the time it’s on because I was thinking of getting my hair cut on Sunday” and Even just like freezes and is all “EXCUSE ME? wot da fuq” and Isak looks up at him and is like “yeah i mean i’m just gonna get it cut a little shorter so it’s not as curly and annoying.” Even’s hand (which was stroking all of Isak’s ‘annoying’ curls) has just stopped in his hair and he is just Not. Chill. At. All. he looks at Isak with his mouth all open and pouty “You are not cutting your hair.” he declares meeting Isaks eyes. 

Isak laughs “what??” he shouts amused and surprised at the passion inside his boys voice over his damn hair. Even just tilts his face down and gives Isak his “I am not kidding babe your not going there, fight me boo” look. 

and Isak just laughs before shouting “oh my gosh your being ridiculous! It’s just hair It doesn’t even matter EVEEEEEN!” 

so then Even just thinks oh you want to fucking start this before smiling and nodding. Isak nods with pride thinking he’s won this fight befooooore Even says 

“You know what? You’re right, summer is coming up and it just gets so hot, I think i’ll go and get my hair cut with you.” 

OH DEAR LORD 

NO 

Isak looks back up at him in horror “NEI!” he practically screams before he could rethink it. 

Even’s eyebrows shoot up smugly “what? no? But baby it’s just hair right?” 

Isak rolls his eyes and crosses his arms in defeat “Fine…fine no fucking hair cut. I hate you.” 

Even rolls over and pulls grumpy Isak closer to him, holding him against his chest. “You love me…” He runs his hand through Isak’s prince hair and kisses it before whispering in his ear “and I love your hair.” 

Isak smiles to himself and blushes. He would never tell Even but after hearing those words from the man of his life, Isak has never looked after his precious curls more.

but are we just going to forget about this

i have to wonder about how Midnight perfected his reflector skills before he was battle ready! did he just tell the Seis ‘hey okay, now swing a sword at me & ima try to bend it.’ or did Brain just fling sharp shit at him because y’know he’s totally ‘father of the year’. /SARCASM.

It’s funny (by funny I mean I hate it) how the writers/creators or w/e basically scream from the rooftop that Dr Mrs the Monarch is trans from s1 & then make her a very successful, very sought out & beautiful woman but the second they realize she’s gonna be more than some parody/joke for the fan base they did everything to say no wait!!! She’s cis!! Well continueto joke abt trans women though,, always gonna joke abt trans women,,, 

BUT ,, we hear u want a trans woman huh?? ;) well here’s Hunter! she’s actually confirmed to be trans ! (sure we’re cissexist about it and throw a shit ton of jokes her way!! but u got ur trans woman !!) but first we gotta make her appearance a joke!! haha Adult Humor am i right ;) ?? and also shes not trans anymore bc we got tired of that again & shes gotta be successful ! we’re gonna put Hunter in a super successful position ! and for that, shes not gonna be trans anymore bc shes about to get semi important !! cant have women for that bc this is a Man’s Show,, can u imagine, trans women in power & successful & happy

so far the man in black seems to only do his weird awful shit when he’s only around other hosts, but i have to imagine that there are other repeat guests of westworld who know who he is and are tired of his shit like

visitor: *walks into the saloon* has anyone seen (host so and so)??? i want to play his new storyline today.

visitor 2: yeah, he was here earlier but that awful dude killed him… talking some shit about deeper levels… you know, the usual. you’ll have to wait til they fix him up.

visitor: *deep sigh* i fucking hate that guy
