breaks&boost

This god damn anime is ruining my life as well as representing something that needed to be done for so long and break down every barrier that blocked the way.

Finally, for once, we’re being given an accurate (well you know) representation of a healthy, normal, and not sexualitized lgbt+ relationship and it’s so…it’s so realistic that it just takes your breath away. It’s not dancing or the skating that caught our eyes or the hearts of its watchers….it’s the characters, their realistic struggles and triumphs, the relationships it’s portraying, the real world life styles! We’re all here now because finally we’re being given something we can relate to and scream over for the right reasons. For once we aren’t a sexualized tag or somethubg to be shamed on. We’re being normal- not set on a pedestal, highlighted, tagged…just…normal. As we SHOULD be.

Yuri on Ice single handedly knocked down so many preset barriers that, with every episode, it’s become a part of us in various aways. It’s encouraging others to do good things for themselves and for others. I swear if you look around, THIS is the purest fandom around. Because that’s what we’re bring given. A pure, healthy, story with a pure and healthy relationship.

Don’t let this ever change, not now, not later, not even it’s long after its ended.

Let YOI’s legend live on and be the domino that sets off the line. Keep posting, show support, freak pray for a season two, and stay positive.

Sometimes the door closes on a relationship, not because we failed but because something bigger than us says this no longer fits our life. So, lock the door, shed a tear, turn around and look for the new door that’s opened. It’s a sign that you’re no longer that person you were, it’s time to change into who you are. It’s going to be okay.

The Amazing Maleeni

Morning, January 10

She’s on her third pass with the broom in her bedroom when the phone rings. Leaning the broom against the wall, she grimaces at the sound of yet another missed piece of glass crunching underfoot on her way to pick up the receiver.

“Hello?”

“Hey, Scully, it’s me. Pack a bag. We’ve got a flight out of Dulles in two hours.”

“Whoa, whoa, what? Mulder… you said you were just running by the office to check on a few things.”

“I did. And we’ve got a case. A really interesting one.”

She closes her eyes, sighing through her nose. “Mulder, I was really hoping to make some progress on my apartment today.”

“Did I mention it’s a really interesting case?”

Ordinarily, she might welcome the opportunity to be distracted by work, but the longer it takes to clean up the mess left behind by Donnie Pfaster’s attack, the longer it will be before she can start leaving the psychological mess behind as well.

“I don’t suppose you’d be willing to handle this one on your own.”

“Well… I already got two plane tickets. But I guess, if you really don’t wanna come along…” She knows the hurt in his voice is mostly just an act.

Mostly.

She sighs again. “Fine. I’ll go. But you have to promise to help me clean here when we get back. For real, this time.”

He’d driven her over this morning and helped for about ten minutes before deciding he should go check in at the office “real fast.” That was three hours ago.

“Hey, I was gonna come back. But then this case–”

“I know, I know. It’s fine, Mulder, just… when the case is over–”

“We’ll get it done. I promise.”

She nods, even though he obviously can’t see her through the phone, then glances over toward her closet, wondering how much she’s going to have to pack for a trip in January. “And where, may I ask, is this case taking us?”

“The City of Angels.” She can hear the smirk in his voice, and she shakes her head, grinning just the tiniest bit.

Great. At least she can leave the heavy coat at home.

Hey, I’m an author!

So I’ve been getting a lot of people in my inbox asking for the links to my books and since I need the extra money, here’s a shameless self-promotion. All of my books can be found on Amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=burgandi+rakoska&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Aburgandi+rakoska

All of them are ebooks and two are additionally paperbacks! (Note: The paperbacks are in beta; Amazon controls how they look.)

If you have a few extra dollars and want to help out a novice author by reading some books with major representation, I’d appreciate it immensely! There are even more on the way in the next few weeks!

honestly I love how… everyone, thinking practically, thought that “something round and gold” was the gold medal because this is a sports anime. It was purposefully vague because that’s how previews work aha! Throw the fans something ambiguous to keep them jumpy and happy. But them Kubo and Yamamoto freakin made our wildest dreams come true and, oh, you know, had them exchange rings in front of the Sagrada Familia. 

Which adds more to the hype because we’re all absolutely floored by the ring scene. It’s something that no one would have really predicted because there’s 0 precedents for it - yuri on ice is breaking new ground and by god it’s fabulous. I mean, yeah, everyone hoped that it meant wedding rings, but we thought that they wouldn’t go far.
