back to myself again


Satoko Miyahara’s “Road to the Queen’s Survival” on HEROS (07/23)

[N = Narration, S = Satoko]

N: This month, half a year away from the Pyeongchang Olympics, Satoko Miyahara was working towards her aim for a full recovery from her injury, step by step, in Toronto, Canada.

S: I’m starting to feel back to myself again, and it’s been going very smooth as of now. (The Olympics) is the place I want to go to the most and it’s also my goal, so I would like to work hard and cherish each and every thing as I strive towards my goal.

N: Last December, Miyahara held back the youngsters leaping forward and won her third consecutive gold medal at the Japanese Nationals. However, as a consequence of her back to back wins, around this time, the small body was crying loudly. The effect of an immense amount of practicing and lack of nutritions: stress fracture. Her wish of competing at the World Championships was erased. In the spring…

S: I chopped it off for a mood change.

N: After getting a haircut, and overcoming over a month of rehabilitation, she was finally able to get back on the ice again. While other skaters were debuting their new programs one by one at ice shows, being a month behind her usual schedule, she began learning choreography. Feeling the happiness to be back skating again, her new free program is…

S: Madama Butterfly.

N: Madama Butterfly, a popular piece which has been used by many big skaters in the past. What must be expressed is a Japanese woman who lives a forward, balanced life, while enduring an everlasting love. About the piece, her choreographer, Tom Dickson says this is the perfect time for Miyahara to skate to this after overcoming a painful time.

S: In order to perform “Satoko Miyahara’s Madama Butterfly”, I will work hard.

N: And now, her biggest challenge is jumps. Even though she is practicing for less time than she did before, she is precisely confirming each and every one of her movements and getting back her jumps through her incredible consistency.

S: I’ve gotten back into my stride quite a bit, well, I still have a long way to go, like once I get into the music I still sometimes collapse, but I’m getting my movements back, one by one.

N: With the rise of talented youngsters, this road to the Olympics is very extreme. And the leading part of that journey, the queen of Japanese figure skating, will soon come back to the competing rink. The huge pride of the queen rooted inside such a small body…

S: Since I’ve been competing the longest out of all of the seniors, I hope to convey that experience in my skating.

You won’t let anyone take the seat of the queen from you?

I do not wish to.

I was the last in a long line of grandkids on both sides of the family. No one has ever said as much, but I’m pretty sure I was an “oops” baby; the result of one too many glasses of wine and a couple over forty who thought unplanned pregnancies were for teens.

Character Aesthetics: Red Queen Series

“You want to thank me, Barrow?” she mutters, kicking away the last of my bindings. “Then keep your word. And let this fucking place burn.” 

That buzzing sound in your ear

Okay, so…after a night of thinking and seeing reactions/comments/etc., I’ve gained a bit of perspective on all of this. Also note that this post is more about the fandom behavior and not so much about the issues of representation, because I don’t think I really have a valid opinion in that discussion. 

Also this is the last time I’ll talk about this. I won’t answer asks and I won’t bring it up again because I don’t want this space to become centered on it. 

1. When stuff like this goes down, I should just turn my computer off and play video games for a while because spontaneous reaction is never ever good. I got angry last night and it was dumb and I feel dumb for it. I love this damn show so much and I won’t let something as small as this ruin it for me

2. Do not, under any circumstances, attack Arryn for this. She is a voice actress with no creative input in the series at all. She was looking out for the fans and trying to do a good thing. She’s already timid enough about social media (and rightfully so) don’t scare off someone who openly stated that she was the captain of the ship and supports it whole heartedly. 

3. Stop expecting Rooster Teeth to spoil their most popular show with some kind of statement about the song or the direction they’re going with Blake and Yang. They’re not going to because that would be stupid. If Bumbleby is meant to bee then giving that away in a journal on the RT site would be criminal. Not to mention that we’ve gotten so much more in canon already than just this random song.

4. I understand the caution, but people really need to calm down. It’d be one thing if we saw Sun and Blake kissing or Yang and Blake openly saying “we’re not in love with each other!” in an episode - but we didn’t. This is a song that was put on the soundtrack, that definitely shouldn’t have been, and the bees fans ran with it. I’m not faulting them at all, I was one of them and I jumped right on board the hype train. But even if it’s not directly meant to be about the ship - I highly doubt it was put on the soundtrack with any sort of malice intent.

5. Which leads me to the next point. Stop pretending that Rooster Teeth is rubbing their hands together and laughing like they’re doing this just to spite people. Could they handle some things better? Absolutely, and they’d be the first ones to tell you that - but they’re not mean spirited people. They’re not trying to upset their fans and this notion that they “don’t care” about their fans is ridiculous. 

6. Patience, please just have some patience. Stop living and dying on every small thing that comes across your dashboard. This show has such a long run left in it and to this point romance has been so so small on that spectrum. Volume 5 is not going to suddenly become a big love story. Even if the bees are going to happen it’ll be subtle as hell and probably take a long time. So one song and one response to a song should not suddenly shut you down from wanting to watch the show at all. There’s so much more to RWBY than this.

7. While this does have the potential to be very bad, it isn’t yet - it’s not even close. I’m just asking that you give them a chance to tell their story without constantly looking for a reason to jump down their throats - all that does is make them leery of you. Writers have the right to tell their story and that’s the whole point. We’re here to watch the stories, not dictate them. If they do queerbait (which I personally don’t think they have, I think that can only happen at the very end of a show or if one of the two characters is killed with no resolution), then they will be in the wrong and they will be met with an even larger version of what happened last night. For now though, just let them make the show and quit hunting for reasons to make them the enemy. 

8. Lastly, please don’t stop shipping bumbleby. Don’t stop talking about how much you love them. Don’t stop making arts and fics and long posts about why you love them. This whole thing wouldn’t be a thing at all if the fans hadn’t seen what they saw in these two and turned it into the biggest ship in the fandom that it’s become.

Based on the purest post on this site

it’s summer again and my hair has reached my waist
i’ve stopped pretending that i don’t miss you
and i’ve stopped trying to convince myself that you miss me too
did you know my father started drinking again?
did you know that my parents are fighting again?
did you know i couldn’t get up this morning?
i’ve tried to ignore your side of the bed but it’s not warm anymore
i can’t remember what your voice sounded like
and i’ve forgotten what it’s like to hold your hand
you know, most nights i look at the sky and try to remind myself that we’re under the same moon
but then again, most nights i go back inside and cry myself to sleep
i’m trying to remind myself that time will help me forget you
that a bottle of vodka and some diet coke will turn me into my father
that people leave and they don’t come back and you can’t do anything to fix it because it can’t be fixed
i’m trying to act like being your friend doesn’t hurt
like it doesn’t tear me to pieces
like i don’t wish i could call you baby and fall asleep to the sound of your voice
—  you set a fire in my heart five months ago and i’ve been trying to put it out
Marichat Day 14: Aged-Up Chat Noir

“Marinette, stay behind me,” Chat Noir warned, keeping one arm thrown back behind him in her direction.

Older Chat leaned against the balcony railing, arms crossed and an amused expression on his face. “This really isn’t necessary. I’m literally you.”

Marinette peeked around Chat Noir’s back to study the older man. “Why are you here?”

“To see you, of course, Princess,” he winked. Chat Noir growled and the older man laughed, waving a hand. “Paon is learning how to use his powers of time travel. I’m the guinea pig. Don’t worry, my Lady will have me back in her arms  within an hour or so.”

“How do you know?” Marinette bypassed Chat Noir’s outstretched arm to his exasperated huff. 

Older Chat smiled at her. “Because it’s already happened for me.” He tilted his head in his younger version’s direction. “I remember it.”

Chat Noir furrowed his brow. “Why come here though? Why visit Marinette?”

“She knows why.” Older Chat gave her a knowing look. 

Marinette’s eyes widened and she blushed. Chat Noir looked at her incredulously. “What does that mean?!”

She put a hand on his shoulder. “Hey, I think it’s okay. Do you mind if I talk to him alone?”

“What?!” he sputtered. “No. Absolutely not!”

“He’s you, kitty. There’s no one I trust more.” She cupped his cheek and smiled. “You can sit on my bed so you can still see us through the skylight.”

Chat Noir pushed out his bottom lip. “Fine, but I’m coming back up in five minutes no matter what.” He glared at his future self before dropping down through the skylight.

“I forgot how stubborn I could be,” Older Chat remarked, giving himself a finger wave.

“You know who I am,” Marinette said softly, stepping closer to him.

“You’re my Lady,” he whispered back. “I couldn’t help myself. I wanted to see you like this again.”

“Like this?”


“I don’t understand,” she confessed.

“I wouldn’t expect you to. Just know it does me good to see you like this…to see you with him.”

“Do I tell you…him…” she shook her head. “Am I the one who tells Chat who I am first?”

Older Chat pursed his lips. “I really shouldn’t say anything. You warned me not mess anything up when I came back…”

“Can’t you give me one itty bitty hint, kitty?” she begged with a pleading smile.

Older Chat put a hand to his heart. “Low blow, my Lady. You know I can’t say no to you.”

“My Lady? D-did you just call her…” Marinette spun to see Chat Noir’s head poking out of the skylight. “Marinette?”

Marinette looked at Older Chat in terror. He winked. “You bast–”

A glowing blue light erupted from behind Older Chat, cutting off Marinette. “Come on, love. It’s time to come back home,” a familar voice said as a slender arm reached through the blue light. 

Older Chat kissed the hand reaching for him and turned back to the young pair. “See you in a few years, my Lady,” he said with a grin to Marinette. “Enjoy tonight, Adrien,” he finished with a wink before disappearing into the blue light.

Marinette spun on Chat Noir. “Adrien?!”
