It's incredible to me a Sarah J. Maas fangirl - SJM, the queen of mashing up cultures so bad they not only stop making sense but turn incredibly offensive - will criticize TWATD, a book written by someone with a Persian family. 1. The Rajput isn't a nickname, it's his identity (I'm Indian, as miffed I am about 'mera dost' it's not such a wild deal breaker) 2. Shiva is a Persian name too. Renee has not confused the cultures, your understanding of the way Asian cultures intermingled is limited.

Whoo! Congratulations on being my first rude anon, you should be so proud honey!!

Since you took the time to list this out, I think I’ll reply in turn.

1) I don’t like your tone. If you disagree with something I have to say, then that’s fine, but I honestly am wondering who taught you manners because there are much nicer ways to phrase this.

2) Yes, I am an SJM fangirl, but honestly… I was not able to make out any evidence of this (the Day Court = Egypt and ToG kingdoms yes, but since I’m not as understanding of these cultures, I don’t know what would be offensive). I would love to know if this was going on, though! (Take notes: I can appreciate criticism of my favorite series without attacking the person who did it).

3) Rajput is his identity. Also when Shahrzad first meets him, she asks for his name, and she is told that “that’s just what he’s called”. Seems like a pseudonym or nickname as well to me. And I have to say that I disagree. I think the Rajput culture thing I was talking about was possibly offensive.

4) The meraa dost thing… I don’t recall saying anything anywhere similar to deal breaker? In fact the deal was never “broken” cause I still like these books. I think you’re making a bigger deal of this than I am.

5) I was not aware Shiva was a Persian name, thanks for telling me that! BUT… It still can be open to misinterpretation so I still stand by what I said.

4) Way to go babe! My family’s Indian too, and I have lived in India for years at a time, I have friends with Middle Eastern roots so don’t tell me I don’t know anything about Asian cultures. I made this post because of how I was looking at it from an Indian cultural viewpoint. Well yeah, obviously I can’t claim to know everything about Asian culture, but I’m sure you don’t either, so.

The bottom line is that if you disagree with me, that’s fine, I’d love to hear what you have to say actually. But if you’re going to, do it in the way my-name-is-fireheart did, in a polite way where she was continuing a discussion and sharing her opinion. Rather than flinging aroung insulting language because you can’t handle that someone could actually have a different opinion than you *GASP*

Have a good day <3

Maddie.......... who is chihoko.......

Hahaha okay I’ll try and sum it up! All of this information is courtesy denkimouse on Twitter so you should definitely go read their explanation as well!! They live-tweeted the event and shared a lot of great information! I’m going to be cutting a lot of details lololol

PSA: I just woke up and am still shook so if anything is inaccurate I apologize and please let me know!!!

At the event there was a stage-reading of a YOI story! Victor, Yuuri, and many others are in Hasetsu before a skating show and get drunk. Victor is helping Yuuri stretch and Yuuri says something, a bit slurred, about how “Chihoko is more flexible” than he is.

The next morning, Victor is missing! Yurio is mad and blames Yuuri, nobody can find him anywhere. Victor is naked and stretching on top of a castle, essentially trying to prove that he’s more flexible than this CHIHOKO PERSON. Yuuri is like “o my god.” Victor asks Yuuri to join him and Yuuri Katsuki actually strips off of his clothes and goes to stretch on top of the castle with Victor.

Tidbits:

  • Chihoko isn’t a real person, Victor just misheard him
  • People accused Yurio of getting rid of Victor because Yurio had show name ideas including “Yuri On Darkness, Yuri On Galaxy, etc.”
  • Seung-gil kissed Nishigori?? shook
  • When Yuuri woke up (the morning after getting drunk) “Overcome Chihoko” was written on his back
  • This:

Okay back to happier (?) topics - today’s prompts were firsts/future/tears !!!! and honestly that’s probably a happy set why did I go for this even we might just never know

So i saw a post a few days ago about neurotypicals who say that stim/fidget toys make you *less* focused and how fucked that is and it got me thinking of an analogy.

So you know when you try on a friend’s glasses and you can’t see shit???? Their glasses make your vision worse, right? But you realize that it’s because YOU DON’T NEED THEM. You might mention or make a joke about how blurry things are for you, but you still understand and appreciate that the glasses help your friend see, even though they aren’t good for you personally.

So when you try your friend’s tangle or fidget cube and claim, as a blanket statement, that it makes you *less* focused and that your friend should stop using it for that reason?? You’re being just as much of an asshole as if you tried on your friend’s glasses and said “wow, you know these ACTUALLY make your vision WORSE, right???” because you’re assuming that your experience is the same as theirs when it’s really, really not.

Jack Zimmermann was accustomed to dealing with difficult situations; he was captain of the Samwell Men’s Hockey team after all, but this? This was never in the job description.

“Can I tell you a secret?” Bitty whispered into the side of Jack’s neck, breath hot and sweet against his skin. The kegster ended a while ago but Bitty was still feeling the effects. When he fell off the coffee table attempting to dance to All the Single Ladies, Jack swept in ready to piggyback him to bed.

“Alright,” Jack said, mouthing I got this in Lardo’s direction before heading to the stairs.

“I don’t wanna be a single lady anymore,” His voice faltered and Jack became acutely aware of Bitty’s thighs around his hips. “I want a person. Everybody else has got a person.”

“With moves like that I don’t think you’ll have to wait long,” Jack said, supressing a chuckle.

“Mmhmm,” Bitty mumbled, fighting a losing war against sleep. Jack pushed open the door to Bitty’s room with his foot and ducked inside.

One of my fav things about katsudeku is the fact that Izuku calls Bakugou “kacchan” and Bakugou lets him, he fucking lets him. He doesn’t yell, get angry, or get violent. He just lets Izuku call him that, he lets Izuku (his childhood friend turned rival) of all people call him “kacchan”
