I don’t like that Harry ended with Ginny. Nothing against her, I just see too many tropes there. She 1. is the best friend’s little sister, 2. is the girl who wasn’t interesting, but a couple years later… bam! hot, 3. resembles his mother (not her personality, but don’t tell me anyone seeing a photo of Harry and Ginny wouldn’t think of James and Lily). I find the idea really boring. I wish JK had been more bold, or at least creative, with the choice for Harry’s love interest. Tbh, I’d be happier if he ended up single. Harry has gone through so much, I can see how he’d have trouble finding someone that was right for him.
He crosses his endlessly long legs, studying you in silence. All the while you’re nervous, anxious that he’ll see right through you.
It’s obvious to you he’s not in charge; you wouldn’t meet with the boss for an initial screening. But still, he must be someone he trusts implicitly. He was, after all, in charge of procuring a woman his superior would find suitable to be his next “pet”.
You shiver at the thought, only imagining what exactly that title entails. What kind of men keep women in such a way?
“So…” he speaks, shaking his head so that the bleached hair moves from his eyes. “It’s obvious you’re beautiful, but aside from that, I want to know more about you. Tell me your darkest secret”.
Your heart races. Right now the only secret that comes to mind is the one you want to hide from him the most. He can’t know who you really are or your real intentions for being here.
“If I told you… It wouldn’t really be a secret, would it?”
He chuckles, amused by your resistance. His plump lips part as he leans dangerously close towards you.
“Secrets don’t make friends, love. Don’t worry your pretty little head, I won’t tell a soul”.
You panic, wracking your brain for anything you can give to appease his insistent curiosity, but still, you come up blank; only able to rely on your talent for talking in circles to save you.
“How am I to believe you? Don’t you know the old saying?”
“And what saying is that?” he questions, adjusting his position to rest his chin in his hand; hanging on your every word.
“Two can keep a secret if one of them is dead”.
With that, he grins wildly, even more thrilled with how this game of cat and mouse is playing out.
“I think I’ve heard all I need to. We’ll be in touch, mystery girl”.
Omae is a disrespectful/offensive way of saying "you." As a Ciellizzy shipper I wouldn't exactly like him calling her that :/
This bothers me on so many levels right now so let’s count them:
Here is wikipedia:
Ciel is a freaking brat. Could you imagine him speaking to people in the most polite tone there is? No. Ciel’s simply a rude kid so I like that pronoun for him. But even if we say it’s not the politest “you”, it’s still not the end of the world, right? I doubt he speaks like that to more influencial people tho, @akumadeenglish? Anyway, it’s not like calling Lizzy “omae” would indicate him trying to be rude to her. It says more about Ciel himself I think.
NOW WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT! You’ve probably read this above already but I feel like pointing it out: a very casual relationship with someone you’re very close to? Like for example…your fiancee whom you grew up with? I totally love this because on top of allowing him to express his big ego the pronoun also indicates he and Lizzy are close. I must say this is almost the main reason I am bothered with your ask. If he were to address her more politely it’d be because he’d have to be worried she’d take him to be rude. But she doesn’t. Elizabeth is fine with her Ciel saying “omae” to her. It’s just super casual like he can be himself. I am also not quite sure how rude it really is. Like, anime gives a lot of room for speach patterns of all kinds and even there you can see them contemplate about each other’s use of pronouns and honorifics and such. In the end of the day, isn’t “omae” just “you” without any extras? Japanese people seem to be very sensitive there already… like when you walk up to a stranger and call them by their name without any honorifics… It seems to be such a big deal in their culture…Weird. XD But in that way it suits them, right? Ciel and Elizabeth are so close. Ciel and Elizabeth don’t use honorifics for each other either so “omae” makes sense, right? @akumadeenglish, correct me if I’m wrong please, I’m only speaking from my anime experience. (Oh my God, how did I end up here? XD)
Bam baem BAM BAAAAAAAAM~ Tell me again that as a shipper you wouldn’t exactly like him to call her that. Tell me again, now’s your chance! XD Seriously, I didn’t know that either before this topic came up. THIS IS SO COOL! Acknowledgement for the ship. God bless. Japanese is so weird and so much fun! X3
I kind of love how that pronoun suits them so perfectly, how much better could it possibly get?
But now I have to come to my main reason to be upset:
He calls her “omae” here too in the original. Does it really matter what word he uses? Like, this is what Ciel thinks of her: the girl he will protect at any cost. How could it possibly matter to anyone if Ciel were to address her with a rude pronoun!? It is simply beyond me how that could ever matter! I don’t understand what’s the big deal about it. Even if he actually were to address her rudely,which he doesn’t do, this is what his actions say. Do you as a shipper think the pronoun would actually matter compared to this?
…I feel I’ve gotten lost in a rant. Feel free to point out to me how much shit I just threw together here. Have fun. XD
Wow that’s some amazing analysis! The analogy to literature narrative structure makes a lot of sense. For something to grab your attention and keep it for 4.5 minutes the first time you hear it, these patterns are needed. Might be why music like h&l are considered risky - when I listen to it later I recognize clear climax and low points, but the first time I heard it with the program the impression was a bit undifferentiated (tho for me it’s undifferentiated beauty!).
Thank you! :grin:
I agree with you for Hope and Legacy, the structure is complicated.
1) PLATEAU to RISE. Music begins. Gentle running along 3 notes with its various variations. There is a slight increase in volume as he lands the 4Lo at 0:57 (he probably timed it as such).
2) PLATEAU. Music continues running as such, like a neverending stream, as if the 4Lo, the pebble which caused a ripple, never existed and never disturbed the ebb and flow at all.
3) RISE to FALL.1:09 Heavier piano notes (chords I think) begin. dun-dun-Dun-DUn-DUN as he sets up for the 4S, outright chords at 1:18 immediately before the 4S, before giving way as he leaves the ice to rotate, as if the 4S released the pressure building up, then he poses right before spin.
4) PLATEAU (the music is separable into layers with each spin). Higher notes play as he enters camel spin Strings enter midspin and he goes into donut spin Piano re-enters and he does sit spin As piano and string interweave he shifts and does biellman spin. (aka any change of instruments = position/variation change)
5) PLATEAU to RISE. 1:44 Strings, he begins step sequence. First phase of step sequence.
6) RISE (HIGH PEAK). 1:56 A peak in the step sequence that attracts attention and during which he paused slightly. Interesting cos he tends to rest during the lower emotional arcs of music but in H&L he does it at peaks where its more emotional and his body (he puts his two palms facing him before opening them up and at point 10 where he grasps something) is narrating an enjoyment of music. It being a break also means those one or two seconds are drawn to his upper body, which he uses to narrate that and conduct the audience’s emotions to feel whatever he is conveying.
7) FALL to PLATEAU. (whatever goes up comes down)
1:57 Lighter strings. Second phase of step sequence.
8) RISE. 2:06 Strings pause, piano melody re-enters. Third phase of step sequence. Another short pose, very very short but this serves more as a border to mark out the boundaries between the 2nd phase and 3rd phase. Heavier piano, chords introduced. Music builds. Strings re-enter.
9) RISE to FALL (during 3F). Music builds and builds and builds, minute pause in music before shifting to piano and he does 3F during this. Lands 3F, strings play once more.
10) RISE (HIGH PEAK) to RISE. Strings, music is emotional, he pauses. Longest pause ever in the program 2:49 - 2:52, also please look back at 6) for more explanation. He just feels the music.
11) RISE. Heavy strings, music rises and suspense builds and heavy strings go heavier and heavier with each note before giving way into strings melody (ironically as effect as climax despite being more subtle than the buildup) as the 4S3T is unleashed. This is a huge climax and even the rotations match the notes.
12) RISE to FALL.3:20 Strings become heavier again + heavier piano chords, music rises and suspense builds rinse repeat 11), then music ceases suddenly and bam! 4T.
13) PLATEAU. 3:37 Quiet music, 3A2T.
14) RISE. 3:50 - 4:04. Strings, music becomes more emotional, music builds up quickly, 3A1Lo3S.
15) FALL. Music quietens and he does his spin.
16) RISE, RISE, RISE. 4:21 Intense music for the choreographic sequence.
17) RISE (HIGH PEAK). 4:33 - 4:35, in true Yuzu style, hydroblade at important point.
18) RISE (or you can say PLATEAU but at a higher emotional level than previous ones). 4:36 - 4:44. Continuation of choreographic sequence. Music builds.
19) RISE to RISE (HIGH PEAK). 4:45 - 4:50, in true Yuzu style, ina bauer at important point.
20) RISE. Setup of 3Lz, the landing of the 3Lz is a highlight, 4:55 emotional music and at the same time he does camel spin.
21) FALL. 5:04, simple piano, he changes position while matching the drop in music.
22) CLOSURE. Final note gives a sense of finality and closure that exudes a dignified air befitting the theme of Legacy.
Tbh the ending is pretty warhorsey cos it’s !intense! !dramatic! !RISE! and the old-fashioned happy ending ‘I’ll quiet down’ closure. It’s the front half that messes some people up, especially those who want things like RJ1.0 where the FALL is in the middle while H&L is rise-fall-rise-fall-rise-fall etc in the first half.
But we forget that this is about Hanyu Yuzuru, who’s life was exactly as such. He rose up quickly through novice, had a terrible first junior year, rose up to win everything in second junior year and debuted as senior at the ripe old age of 15, had a mediocre first senior season (cos mens field was deep in JP in those times) whereas he watched Kana shine in her debut season, had a huge FALL for 311, rose up to win bronze at first Worlds. This is the first half of the program. Then he rose to break SP WRs, rose to win Olys, fell non-stop for 14-15 season, rose for 15-16 season, fell for 16 Worlds FS, rose for 16-17 season, but whatever falls he had during his dominant years, those were, in the end, growing points for him so they were not counted as FALLs but as RISEs. Each one has served him well, like how his popping has actually made him more flexible in layout and resulted in a couple of firsts. With each season, his legend and legacy grows and evolves just like the RISEs in the second half of the program that just keep increasing with intensity without bounds. For this is a skater who knows no limits.
He actually has many breaks, but the breaks are very very short each time. It is interesting, because this program requires one to be the wind through the forest, the calm river and the dappled sunlight through the trees, and such small pauses make the breaks less noticeable and create the feeling of continuity. The structure of Hope and Legacy is complicated and has many highs and lows, just like that of Hanyu Yuzuru’s life, and just like how it is a worthy representation of it in spirit.
A great person will endure great tribulations. (Someone please translate, my translation abilities have not reached such a level yet.) 故天将降大任于斯人也，必先苦其心志，劳其筋骨，饿其体肤，空乏其身，行拂乱其所为，所以动心忍性，曾益其所不能. Something along the lines of ‘When God wants to bestow a huge mission/responsibility/ etc upon someone, He will first temper your will and spirit, put you into physical trials, cause you to experience hunger, make you experience poverty, allow you to taste the bitterness of not having everything go smoothly, such that you may strengthen your heart and determination, and have renewed conviction and benefit and grow.’
That program needs more love! As I was doing the analysis, I was amazed at how artistically avant-garde it was in terms of narrative structure. The first half, I suspect, was probably what threw people off and made it “less appreciated”, and second half was (as mentioned in the post) much more similar to a typical ‘warhorse’ with the drama, yet the program never deviated from its purpose of representing Yuzu’s journey. It was about growth and taking flight and feeling hope, and then repeatedly seemingly losing hope but regaining it despite all odds, and then it was finally about his dominance and his legacy. Overall, it is a RISE, evident from the post. The overall big picture structure is still within the 6 traditional emotional arcs (see: https://www.google.com.sg/amp/s/www.theatlantic.com/amp/article/490733/) , but because Yuzu chose to embellish the growth part very much, it is so rich in content that people can’t see the forest for the trees (AHAH forest imagery) and get so hung up about ‘how hard to grasp’/‘how seemingly unstructured’ the first part was.
Tbh, I think he is actually doing a very intimate act by sharing his life and journey and all the bitterness and joys accompanying it. It may sound presumptuous and prolly I am overthinking it and assuming something that doesn’t exist, but wouldn’t only fans be able to appreciate it fully since we know deeply about his history? That might also be another reason why judges only see the surface and do not have the contextual knowledge for true enjoyment.
Good grief I can’t seem to shut up, can I?
The only thing I can add further right now would be that he still sees himself as still growing (also because he is humble and self-critical), and I wonder if it might also have influenced the program and cause a heavy focus on the growth part? But idk how much his input and influence was in relation to Shae’s, though I know he has always been more involved in his FS. (he is one of the painters in FS, but he seems to also want to attempt to be the painted by Buttle for SP)

Arkiler kimse kusura bakmasın, alınmaca darılmaca yok. Bam diye vuruyorum suratınıza; bu dünyanın en az %80i geri zekalılardan oluşuyor. Bizim ülkemizin de en az %75i geri zekalı. Yani bunu okuyan herhangi birisi geri zekalı olabilir, gücenmeyin hiç. Bu bi sıkıntı değil, konu sizin neden geri zekalı olduğunuz da değil zaten. Her neyse.
Yaklaşık 2 saattir kardeşimle giyim mağazalarını geziyoruz. Ben yaklaşık 5 senedir öyle “alışveriş yapam” diye mağaza mağaza mağaza gezmedim, nerede ucuzluk, nerede varoşluk, nerede pazar oralara takıldım.
Bugün fark ettim ki insanların “güzel” anlayışıyla hayyyyvanlar gibi oynuyolar aq. İlk başta ayakkabılara baktık. Popüler kültürün yaygınlaştırdığı şu nikeın bi modeli var, arkasında böyle tutulcak yeri falan var kesin görmüşsünüzdür yeni sezonda ve herrrrrrrrkeslerin ayağında. 250 lira çekmişler ayakkabıya. Ayakkabıya 10 saniyeden fazla bakınca ayakkabının çirkinliğini anlayabiliyosunuz ama anlamak için en az 10 saniye bakmanız lazım. Zira ilk 2 saniyede “bu ayakkabıyı kimler giyiyo?” sorusunu yanıtlıyo beyniniz ve bu giyen kesim arasında gıpta ettiğiniz birisi varsa muhtemelen güzel diyebiliyosunuz ve BAM alıyosunuz. Sonraki 3 saniyede bunu neyle giyebileceğinizi düşünüyosunuz ve sadece renk uyumuna bakıyo sanırım bilinç altınız. Eğer diğer kıyafetlerinizle iyi bir kombin yakalarsanız BAM güzel diyosunuz ve alıyosunuz. Eğer almayı düşünmüyosanız hala ve eleştirel yaklaşıyosanız aslında çirkin bir çöp olduğunu fark ediyosunuz. Bi de arada bi yerde reklamların etkisi de var da nerede tam şeyedemedim şu an. Bi de bi yerde indirim unsuru var her neyse.
Giyim konusu yine aynı. Belirli bir konsepti “moda” kisvesi altında sokuşturuyolar beyinlerimize. Aq yerinde her şey vintagea yönelmiş. Her yer çiçek böcek. Adidas nayk falan hep çiçekli tişortler yapmış. 100 liraya çiçeklerin üzerinde adidas logolu bi tişört satıyolar aq 100 liraya peyzaj kurarsın evin önüne aq yerinde kakalıyolar resmen ve gerçekten estetik değil basit ve sıradan ya bildiğiniz çöp aq çöp. Bu aynı şey gibi kim kardaşyanın götünü güzel diye sunmaları gibi aq. Ne kim kardaşyanının götü güzel ne de bu aptal tişörtler ayakkabılar güzel. Buna inanmayı siz seçiyosunuz arkiler. Neyse sapmıyım konudan.
Tabi bunların yanında güzel ürün yok mu? Var. Ama onlara da hayvan gibi fiyat çekmişler, aylık kazancı 5000 tlnin altındaki kesim alamaz öyle şeyler.
Değinmek istediğim bir diğer husus da bizim yerli markalarımız. Takip ettiğinizi düşünüyorum, yabancı markaların giyim ürünlerin bi zam yapıldı. Botlara motlara su geçirmez vergisi geldi falan. Zaten dolar da yüksek. Belki bunlar yerli üretimi desteklemek ve insanları yerli mallara yöneltmek için bir teşvik unsuru olabilir ve bu durumu mantıklı karşılayabilirim. Lakin şöyle bir durum var, bizim ürettiğimiz şeylerin çirkin olduğunu BAM diye anlayabiliyosun aq. Yaratıcılık yok. Yenilikçilik yok. Renk uyumu bile yapamıyolar. Yani ürettiğimiz en başarılı ürünler klasik ayakkabı ve kumaş pantolon falandır aq.
Ülkede tasarımcı kıtlığı varmış gibi her ayakkabı nayktan adidastan çalıntı modellerden oluşuyo. Farklı model yapan yok. Bildiğin yok aq. Elin basketbolcusu bile yaratıcı ayakkabı tasarlayabilirken bizim moda tasarımcılarımız nerede diye soruyo insan.
Tabi ünlü markalar portfolyolara değil de babasının yıllık kazancına göre tasarımcı alıyosa gayet normal karşılayabiliriz bu durumu. Kahrolsun torpil kahrolsun emek hırsızları.
Gerçekten piyasanın ağzına sıçıyolar kardeş gerçekten moralimi bozuyo bu durum. Siz de aklınızı kullanın, dandik çöplere para harcamayın. Popüler kültürün aptal insanları haline gelmeyin. Geri zekalı olabilirsiniz ama aptal olmamak sizin elinizde. Lütfen aptal köleler haline gelmeyin, kenya vest giyyo diye siz de giymek zorunda değilsiniz.

Your constant support, love, and understanding is why I continue to stay. As you all might know… my computer has been on the junky side since it took at turn for the worst last year and even though it got a repair, things are still dumpy… which hinders my writing. A lot.

Since my writing is on hold for a while, the other way I express myself is through music.

Thank you all again from the bottom of my heart for hanging with me! I love you all x
A/N - Hey guys, I’m back back back back back again! First of all thank you so much for the lovely feedback I received for Chapter 1, and I’m ever so sorry that this has taken so long - I won’t bore you all with the details but I have a lifelong medical condition that can sometimes flare up quite badly and I was all ready to finalise this chapter and submit it then bam, emergency surgery and 3 weeks in the hospital for me! But I’m back home now and ready for you guys.
Also, whilst I was in the hospital I got a bit carried away and this chapter ended up being close to 10,000 words… so I have split it into two parts and Chapter 2.5 will be with you soon. I would find the link for Chapter 1 in case you missed it but I’m clueless on my phone, but I’m sure you can find it in my author tag! For now, Chapter 2/2.5 is taking you on a long and angst ridden journey right back to where it all began, 6 months before Trixie steps into Katya’s apartment and has “the talk.” Backstory come through!

This has been sitting in my music folder for the past few days while I debated on whether I should rerecord it with piano instead of ukulele. But since I haven’t done anything about it I’m posting now.
So, I may or may not have read a comment that said there wasn’t enough phan music. I plan to rectify this (in other words CHALLENGE ACCEPTED. I’ve already got a song written for Dani and one halfway done for Valerie. Just a matter of cleaning up and recording them now)
