but still... sorry

“An Idiot” by PhemieC. Track art by the super talented moggettt!

~Spoilers for The Adventure Zone, Story and Song arc~

A new TAZ fansong, from Taako’s POV, set during Ep 67. It’s interesting how Taako’s entire arc (and early “simple idiot wizard” characterization) could be re-contextualized in light of The Stolen Century and the loss of the memory of his sister. Yeah… Ouch. Download at Soundcloud source. <3

I have lived a hundred lives
and I have died a dozen times
but the reaper hasn’t caught me yet
though his scythe is often at my neck

and I have learned a trick or two
though I’ve forgotten quite a few
and might have told a hundred lies
twice as many half as true

Oh I have been an idiot
missing some key ingredient
and waiting as I fail to rise
never guessing what it meant

I lived adrift on luck and looks
‘till hungry hearts struck hard and took
and made afraid of what I’d done
my skills were nil, my friends were none

I could not trust my empty mind
these stolen holes of space and time
the faces, newly strange, I’d find
none of them resembling mine

Oh I have been an idiot
missing some key ingredient
and waiting as I fail to rise
never asking what it meant

I barely cared, and rarely tried
to find some reason I should fight
but in my hand and at my side
you, my heart, my arm did guide

for I had been your long lost twin
closer than a second skin
and now I am alone again
wiser than I’ve never been

Oh I have been an idiot
missing some key ingredient
but now I know how I will rise
oh how on earth could I forget?
knowing you has made me wise
now I am not an idiot!

Translation of YOI article from the newspaper “Le Monde”

A friend asked me a translation and I saw that on the original post, there were some curious too, so I’ve made a translation of this article (I took the most important part of it precisely)


To be honest, a show about ice skating, we didn’t think it would create such a keen interest”. Olivier Fallaix is responsible of the french Crunchyroll development. It releases outside Asia the surprising big success from this past months : Yuri on Ice, an anime of 12 episodes only, broadcasted between October and December and created by Mappa, a little and young studio.
This is internationally our second biggest success of the year, after Re-zero.
Sport animes are not really an universal genre, with big success. But the strenght of YOI is that it’s not only a sport anime”.

“Fans are not mistaken”

36 years old Ninou Cyrico, is a big fan of YOI, that she watched “five-six times”.
As a writer, she even published a fanfiction of 200 pages about it, taking place few years after the end of the anime.

YOI characters are wonderful, the story is written in a clever way, with an attention to detail very fabulous”, she says and insisting on the care to develop the secondary characters. “Even the less important characters have something that makes them more than being just the background
Fans are not mistaken : with the fanfics, and the doujinshis, they even have groups who wrote stories about them.

In October indeed, the fandom web (the fan community) have seen YOI taking a considerable importance. On Tumblr, their main characters have appeared on the list of the couples the most popular of 2016. On the fanfic website Archive of Our Own, there are at least 19000 stories published since then by fans.

And the most of those creations are focused on the relationship between Yuuri and Victor. In the anime, this love story is “implicit, never explicit, treated with modesty” according to Ninou Cyrico. “It’s clever, it doesn’t harm the story, that’s not about the romance but about Yuuri’s come-back”, and an ode to surpassing ourselves. Also, “a gay romance between a Russian and a Japanese, those days, and especially on the Russian side, it’s pretty cheeky”.

« There isn’t any homophobia »

For Garance Le Gall, an other fan of YOI and writer of a memoir on LGBT representation in comics, this anime appears like “a precious stone on the calendar of the story of anime”.

In Occident, we don’t realize how much what they did is important : a mainstream sport anime, that isn’t yaoi or even shounen ai, with a homosexual couple. It’s a bit like what George Miller did with [Mad Max : Fury Road]. They introduced it like a big testosterone movie, but the audience went to watch a feminist movie instead

Nico Robin from One Piece

It’s Robin again, this time as a painting and not colored lineart. Somewhere in the middle I decided to also give her some of @bloominghands ‘s style, because I just really like the way they draw Robin.

Despicable Orientations

Gru - Straight

Lucy - Bisexual, I can see her crushing on girls and probably dated one before

Dru - Gay

Balthazar - Gay

Scarlet - Straight

Herb - Bisexual

Vector - Asexual, he’s a cool dude by himself

I won’t assume the girls, I just find that creepy because they’re still little.

Imagine, Jikook 2nd cover song - Secret Love Song! *and it's became the funeral day for all Jikook trash* XD

HOW DID YOU KNOW ABOUT MY SECRET TRASH SONG. 

Honestly, this is literally the song I make personal memes about like everyday and I have written like my own twisted version of it inside my head (don’t ask.) and “sing” (i can’t hit those notes. lol.) it on a nightly basis to piss off my neighbours :D

BUT YES. WHY CAN’T HE HOLD HIM IN THE STREET. WHY CAN’T HE KISS HIM ON THE DANCE FLOOR. I WISH THAT THEY COULD BE LIKE THAT. THAT THEY COULD BE LIKE THAT. CAUSE HE’S HIS. OMG.

WHY CAN’T THEY SAY THAT THEY’RE IN LOVE. THEY SHOULD JUST SHOUT IT FROM THE ROOFTOPS.
