but not really soon enough

I feel like some people in the YOI fandom may worry about episode 9 and how it may “not have any Victuri moments” now that Victor’s gone back to Japan.

And sure, we will certainly see less physical Victuri moments. But let’s instead think about the potential positive aspects of the situation: more emotional Victuri moments.

Because, to be fair, we’ve gotten to see a lot of their physical affection already - hugs, hand holding, forehead touches, kisses - you name it. And while I love it and I think it’s important, I think it might just be their thoughts and feelings that really make everything so special.

And this is the perfect opportunity to present the emotional aspect of their relationship. Yuuri has internal monologues about Victor and love all the damn time, and Victor looks so enamored in his Japanese boyfriend that it feels like he could kneel and propose at any given moment, and just imagine how being so physically apart from each other could only heighten and amplify those feelings.

Some people might say that this will be a test for their relationship, but I don’t think so. The fight in the parking lot in episode 7 was more of a test. Now they know that they can trust each other to perform well/give proper support respectively. The lack of Victor’s immediate presence will certainly be relevant and will shake Yuuri, but it won’t be because he’s afraid that Victor might leave him. He himself encouraged him to go back to Japan. Yuuri knows he won’t leave him, knows that he has no reason to be afraid. (And coming from a person who did everything to keep Victor by his side at all times? That’s big.) He trusts Victor enough to let him go back to Japan despite facing his Free Skate the next day. His issues during the second day event of the Rostelecom Cup will most likely only stem from the physical lack of Victor, but not from his emotional insecurity in their relationship. Because by now they’re secure. Even if Victor is thousands of kilometers away, he’s not gone and he’s not leaving him.

And remember that old proverb? If you love someone, set them free. If they come back, they will be yours forever. I think it might just fit this situation in a way. Yuuri is letting Victor go, not entirely of course, but he is letting him go for the time being, despite it being a time when he might just need him most. Perhaps he doesn’t realize it, but in a way, it’s a gamble. The thing is that Victor isn’t going anywhere. He promised to take Yuuri to the Grand Prix Final, and he will. Which means he is coming back. And I think we all know what that means in regards to the proverb?

Also, the entire situation could be interesting from Victor’s perspective. Assuming that he watches the livestream, he will certainly be overcome with some sort of feelings. Except that until now, he released them as soon as they came - through hugging Yuuri or kissing him or similar outbursts of closeness. He won’t be able to do that now. Which means that instead of dealing with the feelings physically, he will have to consider them emotionally and his emotions are clear to anyone who’s seen him around Yuuri. Am I the only one seeing the potential development here?

In any case, I am expecting Yuuri to find strength in his bond with Victor (which will support him during his performance) even without his physical presence and at least a small realization on Victor’s side. Or just Victor being extremely proud and happy with Yuuri, I’m also perfectly fine with that. (And I just really want even more emotional monologues on love please please please)

Even without the physical attention, I think episode 9 could be a breakthrough for Victor and Yuuri’s relationship. I’m sure that the anime could pull it off.

Also I can totally sense a sweet and fluffy ‘reunited at the airport’ scene which would further reaffirm their connection (and give us the beautiful hug/kiss we all secretly want more of).

So yes. Fear not. Episode 9 carries a lot of really strong potential for the development of Victuri. Have faith.

Dear Future Wife, 

Chances are I won’t be very good at buying you jewelry. Truth is I don’t really get it. But it doesn’t mean I won’t try. You don’t have to like sports. But if you do, that’s a nice bonus. You don’t have to cook, I really like cooking. I just don’t like cleaning. Something to do with dish water… you’ll learn soon enough. I really like crappy television.. like really like it. It’s not for everyone, but I promise to make it a little more tolerable (I heavily invest in their lives). I’ve thought about your taste in music. As long as your soundcloud doesn’t have every single florida georgia line song ‘liked’ and reblogged? I’ll strap on some cow boots and line dance with you once in a while. I may not be good at it, but I am willing. I absolutely hate Christmas. But I’ll take you to the Christmas markets, decorate a tree and build a gingerbread house, as long as I get to eat the access candy. It’s occurred to me that I run hot in my sleep, yet refuse to share my blankets, we’ll probably need two duvets on the bed. I get the one made with down.  You definitely don’t have to be into crossfit. I mean you might have to brush up on the lingo… it can be your second language… or third. I hope you’re multilingual, but you don’t have to be.. It has also occurred to me that there are other posts, and blogs like this out there.. someone talking to you.. You can read them all you want, but do me a favour? Please don’t marry the wrong one’s author? Marry the author of this one.

—  I know you’re reading this right now. I can’t wait until you tell me about that time you found a sappy blog post about some girl wanting her wife to know exactly who she was getting into. 
Daichi was 11 like Tsukishima.
Suga was 12 like Yamaguchi.
Asahi was 10 like Hinata.
—  Is this some kind of foreshadowing of Captain Tsukishima, Vice Captain Yamaguchi and Ace Hinata?
Although to be honest, I think it’s Kageyama who will wear number One when they’re third years.

Haikyuu Headcanon!
Mural

Pairing: V x Female!MC

Synopsis: V goes to a fine arts school where he finds a girl painting a mural. Immediately he becomes infatuated with her, but he can’t bring himself to speak to her. It’s been a few months now and the mural is almost done and he has one more chance to talk to her.


“You can do this, you can do this. She’s just a girl, painting a picture.” He paused his pacing and looked back up at you, a soft smile breaking out on his face, “a really pretty, sweet, talented girl.” Soon enough V found himself staring and even though his mind was screaming at him to stop he couldn’t find the strength to. 

You were stood on a step ladder to reach the top of the wall to paint balloons. The mural itself showed a lot of Disney movie themes in it, the house from Up which you were working on currently, the waterfall broke half way to show an ocean with Ariel. Peter Pan was shown overhead flying, and Aladdin on his carpet not far behind. Cinderella’s castle was also shown as part of the background that led into Snow White’s woods. It was astonishing to see how far it’d come from the initial pencil markings from earlier that year.

He could watch you paint all day, you would hum to whatever music you had on and do small dances to it on rare occasions. He also liked hearing you proclaim things when you thought you’d messed up, you’d take in a deep, sharp breath before saying ‘Oh gosh!’ and rushing to fix it before anything else went wrong. You worked very slowly though, you had to perfect every little bit of whatever you’d been working on before even considering starting the next area. V was fine with this though as he’d become completely infatuated with you, the girl he doesn’t even know the name of.

In the end V had given up on going to talk to you, he’d been a ball of nerves ever since he thought about it that morning. As soon as you started packing up the paints and brushes he grabbed his bag and ran off before you would even know he was there. Cursing himself for giving up.

It continued like this for another two weeks. V watching as you painted, he’d resorted to sitting on the walkway a floor up to look less suspicious but it hadn’t been as nice as being sat at the bench not forty feet from you. The problem was though, was the mural was almost finished. There were maybe two days left before you’d pack up and not return for it and V still hadn’t even let his presence be known to you. He had to find the courage to speak to you before the day after tomorrow ended or else he may never see his artsy sun again.


V felt defeated as he’d collapsed in his dorm, face first into his pillow.

“What’s wrong, Jihyun?” Honestly V hadn’t even noticed that his roommate, and best friend, Jumin had entered their small room.

“The mural is almost done.” He mumbled turning his head to let him face Jumin as his cheek rested on the pillow. Jumin nodded letting out a soft ‘I see.’ V had told Jumin all about you, he couldn’t help it. You were so perfect, and amazing, and perfect again because he couldn’t think of another word that might describe you. Jumin had criticized him on using perfect twice at the time, saying he should’ve just said something along the lines of quintessential in personality and art. V refused to admit that he’d never spoken to you, meaning he didn’t quite know her personality which meant he couldn’t have said much else.

That’s probably why Jumin was being so nonchalant about the whole mural being done deal. He didn’t understand that this was possibly the last time that V would ever see you. The night didn’t seem to last as Jumin practiced, it felt as though he had only gone through one song by the time that day had come and V would be faced with seeing you for maybe the last time.

Classes seemed to speed by until the last two minutes of each. Every time he walked in the halls he searched for you, but you were short and seemed to be very timid so you were probably ducking your way through the halls doing your best to not attract any attention. At five o’clock sharp he was back on the walkway upstairs watching the mural. Nothing. No one showed up, not a sound arose around him.

Ten more minutes and still nothing.

“Where is she?” His sun, which he’d begun to refer to you as, had never once been late when it came to painting the mural. He was getting worried. Was she okay? Did she get sick? Did she decide she was done early? Was she meeting some guy? The thought of you with some other guy was killing V, it was embarrassing. “You don’t even know her name and you’re already jealous of whatever guy she’s with? Great.” He pouted and rested his head on the railing.

“MC.”

V jumped, he hadn’t even noticed anyone had been there. “What?” He turned to face the person and saw his sun, or, MC. His heart stopped.

“My name is MC, I noticed you up here last week. Then I noticed you were always here, I thought I’d come say hi.” Your voice was even prettier than he remembered it being when he’d faintly heard you talk to yourself as you were painting. You were also much prettier than he’d thought you were, now that he’d gotten a proper look at you. It took a moment for him to realize his jaw was hanging open and he was staring at you.

“I-I’m V.” You smiled and V knew then and there that he could die right now and it would be okay. “You can call me Jihyun too though.” Your smile only brightened,

“Okay Jihyun, why are you always up here?” When his name had fell from your lips he realized he didn’t want to die because he needed to hear you say his name again. When the silence grew around them he realized he’d had to answer you, but when he didn’t you’d pursed her lips slightly looking down before pointing at his camera. “Does it make for pretty photos?” He knew you were trying to break the ice again, all around you were bland walls and classroom doors. The only pretty things to photograph that were in his line of sight was you or your mural.

“It can make for gorgeous sights.” He regretted the words as soon as he let them go and he’d looked directly at your mural noting that you followed his gaze. “Your mural always fascinated me, I liked seeing it be painted.” Butterflies rose in his stomach when he’d noticed your blush. “I didn’t think you’d finished it.” He turned to look at you and you’d shook your head.

“I haven’t.”

“Then why aren’t you-”

“I told you I thought I’d come say hi today.” You couldn’t meet his eyes when you spoke and you’d run your fingers through your hair before you quickly looked up at him and away again.

“You terrified me.”

“What?!” You looked so worried when he’d told you this that V couldn’t help but give a smile.

“I thought I’d never see you again.” Your face had turned the same shade as your cherry red coat that you’d bundled up in due to the cool January weather. “MC, would you like to get coffee with me sometime?”

~Love, Peony

This one is a lot of V’s thoughts rather than cute fluffy stuff but it’s for a friend so I’m sure she’ll understand

“You both should feel honored.”
“Right, very honored,” I said. “Always wanted to be possessed!”

A/N: thank you so much for your request! I hope this turned out somewhat okay!? x   // masterlist


Well to be clear, you didn’t plan for this to happen. You originally went to the city because you wanted to shop a little and buy your boyfriend a little something but that ended up being a disaster because the weather changed as soon as you arrived. The wind picked up, rain became snow and soon enough your coat was drenched.

You didn’t really pay attention to the destination of the bus you were getting in, because you were desperate to go home and get warm again. You found a seat in the back of the bus and closed your eyes for a moment. As soon as you reopened them though, you realized that your surroundings weren’t familiar at all. Panic started to build up inside you and you hurried out of the bus as soon as he hit the next stop.

Did you drive to far? You couldn’t have been in the bus for that long therefore you couldn’t have missed your stop. But even the name of the station didn’t help you much. So you texted Shawn. 

-

“Quite some adventure, huh?”, Shawn teased you as you climbed into the passenger seat of his Jeep. “You were almost on the other side of the city, you idiot”. 

“I’m sorry! I don’t know my way around here and when the weather started to pick up I just wanted to go back home to you”, you whined. “you shouldn’t have let me go alone!”.

You hit his shoulder which only made Shawn laugh out loud. He shook his head at you before saying, “you insisted on going alone”.

You crossed your arms over your chest and pouted like a little girl. “I’m still blaming you, Mendes”.

“Whatever floats your boat, baby”, he said and intertwined his hand with yours.

Reader x Isaiah

Requested By Anon


You blushed when Isaiah glanced at you and smiled. You tried to keep your crush on Isaiah a secret but you knew your brothers must know by now. It had started as soon as you were really old enough to notice boys, Isaiah was your older brothers best friend, confident and forward.

 

“How’re you doing today?” Isaiah hummed, he sat next to you as he waited for Finn and Michael to come out, seeming to miss your flustered state.

 

“It’s great… how’s yours?” You squeaked and he shrugged.

Well, that’s a lot of anger, sure, but it’s not exactly unjustified.

It’d be interesting–because, let’s be real, we don’t see Lapis or Peridot very often, even now that they’re part of the main-ish cast–to see how Peridot and Bismuth got along.  Peridot’s still got her diamond on, after all.  But–Bismuth was there when this all started, apparently.  She knows that every Crystal Gem is a convert from Homeworld.  I bet she’d actually be fine interacting with Peridot.  I don’t know if this is a one-off character or if she’s the start of a new Crystal Gem Army really taking off, but I’m sure I’ll find out soon enough.
