competition is fierce

Okay but what if...

Instead of the post-GPF banquet this year, they turn it into an impromptu wedding for Victor and Yuuri? Would that not be the most fitting place for them to get married? At the same party where they first met? Thanks to Yuuri, I’m sure the banquet is expected to get a little rowdy unlike previous years, where it’s been nothing but stuffy and boring. Now, even if the competition is fierce, they’re all friends. Chris breaks out his stripper pole, Phichit brings the champagne, Yurio sits in a corner with Otabek and refuses to leave in fear of being challenged into another drunk dance-off. Victor and Yuuri dance the night away and then Minako grabs a microphone so she can gather everyone in a circle around Victor and Yuuri to officiate the wedding. She then hands it to the two lovebirds so they can say their vows. Victor starts telling Yuuri how much he loves him and how he’s found his true home and happiness through Yuuri and Yuuri, with a bit of alcohol already in his system, can’t stop the tears from streaming down his face. Victor hands Yuuri the microphone for his vows and he has trouble forming a coherent thought for the first few minutes. Eventually he just tells Victor how happy he is that he came into his life and showed him what real love is. He says he hopes they never stop skating together. Minako grabs the microphone back from Yuuri and pronounces them married. They kiss and everyone’s hooting and hollering. Phichit takes a million photos and blurry selfies and they all dance until they can’t feel their legs.

my headcanons for real!graves include:

  • how he’d saved tina’s headstrong ass multiple times over her career and was the one to personally recommend her promotion to senior auror despite this
  • started checking in on Credence as a favor to Tina b/c he’s got a soft spot for orphans and hotheaded subordinates 
  • genuinely made the offer to teach Credence magic before Grindelwald ruined everything
  • he went to school with Picquery, back when he called her Phina, and they were fiercely competitive frenemies
  • worked with Picquery for over 20 years
  • he has the driest wit and could say the most outrageous thing with a straight face
  • his sense of justice is only matched by his protectiveness, esp. when it comes to his department of aurors
  • like he would literally take a magic bullet for any of them
  • he’s a lonely guy married to his work with no social life to speak of, his retirement plan consists of “die fighting the good fight”
  • nice clothes are his guilty pleasure and he’s secretly a flashy guy, aka scorpion collar pins
  • never throws his family name around and likes to think that he made it on his own merits
  • never forgets his secretary’s birthday, always lowkey gets her a gift
  • a little self-conscious about aging, has no idea how well he’s rocking that salt and pepper look 
  • truly just a dedicated wizard cop at heart

and that is why i cry at night thinking about how no one noticed Graves was replaced by a homicidal terrorist.

  • Me: What's it going to take to get you to watch Yuri!!! On Ice?
  • Them: The one about figure skating? That doesn't sound like something I'm interested in.
  • Me: What if I told you the animation and figure skating sequences are awesome, it has realistic storytelling, superb character development, a lovely soundtrack, and actually surpasses its own greatness every episode?
  • Them: Still, it's not really --
  • Me: It smashes stereotypes like a wrecking ball, is full of diversity, friendly but fierce competition, and healthy relationships.
  • Them: Okay, but even so --
  • Me: Tangible tension but no melodrama, plot twists that turn the show on its heel and rewrites your perspective in five seconds, THE GREATEST LOVE STORY that's slightly mysterious and progressive and, bonus, the most positive LGBT representation I've ever seen in an anime or really anywhere
  • Them: But --
  • Them: Still - wait, what?
  • Me: Did I stutter?

DaiKuroBokuOiUshiTeru, because I have lost control of my life

  • Daichi’s lap is a prime resting spot and competition is fierce okay their heads have never rested on a comfier pillow
  • (Daichi has wryly asked on multiple occasions if they’re just dating him for his thighs)
  • Bokuto is the number one hugger in the house and there is also stiff competition to cuddle him okay a hug from Bokuto evaporates stress their faces are clear their crops are good
  • 90% of Daichi’s time is spent trying to keep the other 5 from doing something stupid and dangerous

  • Daichi is a physical therapist
  • Terushima has viral parkour videos and is a vlogger

  • Oikawa wasn’t exactly hostile, but not really warm to Ushijima at first, but the other four provided enough of a buffer that they eventually became really close
  • Terushima and Bokuto are the rays of sunshine in the house
  • They make sure to always have one night a week where they can all pile on top of each other and just cuddle while watching a movie

Super Mario: How Nintendo Conquered America | Buy-Now!

In 1981, Nintendo of America was a one-year-old business already on the brink of failure. Its president, Mino Arakawa, was stuck with two thousand unsold arcade cabinets for a dud of a game (Radar Scope). So he hatched a plan.

Back in Japan, a boyish, shaggy-haired staff artist named Shigeru Miyamoto designed a new game for the unsold cabinets featur­ing an angry gorilla and a small jumping man. Donkey Kong brought in $180 million in its first year alone and launched the career of a short, chubby plumber named Mario.

Since then, Mario has starred in over two hundred games, gen­erating profits in the billions. He is more recognizable than Mickey Mouse, yet he’s little more than a mustache in bib overalls. How did a mere smear of pixels gain such huge popularity?

Super Mario tells the story behind the Nintendo games millions of us grew up with, explaining how a Japanese trading card company rose to dominate the fiercely competitive video-game industry.

Some headcanons about Seijoh

·      Matsun took tap dancing lessons for several years

·      Kindaichi was that one kid who always sang louder than everyone else during elementary school performances

·      Watari is really good with technology for some reason and everyone always goes to him for help with their technical problems

·      One time Kyoutani, Yahaba, and Watari all went out bowling and it turned into a fierce competition between Kyoutani and Yahaba, trying to beat each other and also using deceptive means to do it so in the end, Watari beat them by a helluva lot

·      Kunimi once fell asleep in his driveway

·      Yahaba and Watari became close friends at the beginning of high school, and after their match with Karasuno, (forcibly) inducted Kyoutani into their group

·      Yahaba and Oikawa go shopping together and sometimes drag Kyoutani and Iwaizumi with them. Iwaizumi is hopeless with fashion, but Kyoutani has a weirdly good sense of color?

·      Everyone on the team has guesses as to why Kyoutani’s hair is like that. Every one of them is wrong, but they will never know

·      At training camp, matsun and makki get their own room because makki snores louder than a train and matsun didn’t want him to be alone ;)

·      Watari gained most of his skill at receiving from practicing receiving Oikawa’s serves

·      At some point, Oikawa has done the makeup of everyone on the team

·      Every time one of the other third years teases Iwaizumi about his height, he challenges them to arm wrestling. Makki is the only one who always takes the challenge. He has yet to win

Rivals is a strong word by definition. Even if you just say the word, it sounds bold and menacing. A naïve onlooker would merely dismiss the idea of two idol groups being “rivals” as an over exaggeration. To digress, the rivalry between your group and GOT7 was identical to the image the dictionary definition creates. The competition is fierce; only the strongest of willpowers can survive such heat. You didn’t hate any of the members of GOT7. It was the contrary. Such an admiration for them had ignited into a passion to surpass them in every way possible. It’s no easy feat. Majority of the time, be it award or chart shows, you were on before GOT7. You’d walk off stage, everyone’s faces glistening in sweat and hearts alight with a post performance buzz, and you’d bump into the boys themselves. Polite greetings would always be exchanged, yet when you reached Mark Tuan, a burning mischief would radiate towards you. The two of you had barely spoken beyond the cheery “fighting!” before an important performance. Despite this, the glances you shot at each other were another matter entirely. It was nothing you could explain, nor wanted to. You knew better than to provoke rumours. Being able to fulfil your passion of doing music and performing costed you a good portion of your freedom. One of the strict regulations is, of course, no dating. Nonetheless, you were particularly drawn to the shy eldest. He was cute, you couldn’t deny it to anyone nor yourself.

Got7 - Hogwarts Houses

Mark: Ravenclaw - Mark’s a quieter member and I think his personality would suit ravenclaw. But unlike Jinyoung, he wouldn’t study loads and would actually be the opposite of what you’d expect from a ravenclaw. He’d procrastinate loads and would always do homework the night before it’s due, but he’d make up for it by knowing loads of random facts about completely irrelevant stuff.

JB: Slytherin - Our leader seems like he’d be a slytherin. He has a cool and chic persona that suits a slytherin. However he wouldn’t be like some slytherins who believed his house was superior, he’d treat his classmates as equals and wouldn’t be like the stereotypical slytherins.

Jackson: Gryffindor - Jackson seems like a classic gryffindor, brave but a bit reckless. He’d be willing to fight and die for any of his friends no matter their house. He’d also be fiercely competitive over their quidditch team. Jackson would 100% be a typical gryffindor, in my opinion and he’d constantly find himself getting into trouble with his professors for talking too much.

Jinyoung: Ravenclaw - Jinyoung seems to be more of the studious type and someone who values intelligence. He’s also pretty witty and sassy so I could see him fitting in with the ravenclaws. I can just see him practicing spells in the library or the common room!

Youngjae: Hufflepuff - Youngjae is the member who is literal sunshine and would fit right in with Hufflepuff. He seems like he’d just love being at Hogwarts and learning so much about being a wizard and the whole magical feel would excite him so much.

Bambam: Slytherin - Bambam seems like a slytherin through and through to me. He just has this personality that I immediately attribute to slytherin. He’d definitely be one of the cool and popular kids at Hogwarts and everyone would want to be him.

Yugyeom: Gryffindor - Part of me wanted to place Yugyeom in Hufflepuff but after thinking about it, he’d fit better in Gryffindor. For some reason, Yugyeom reminds me of Neville Longbottom in the sense that people would assume he’s not from the house destined for brave and chivalrous people. Yugyeom would be an underdog that no one realises is actually amazing at casting spells.

Supergirl Hogwarts Headcanons
  • Slytherin Cat and Lena are fiercely competitive and are always trying to out do each other. Things will often get quite tense in the Slytherin common room.
  • Lena is smarter than Cat and she knows it but Cat has a way with words that no even Lena can rival.
  • However this act isn’t fooling anyone. Everyone knows both of them will melt as soon as the sweet Hufflepuff Kara Danvers enters the room. 
  • The Ravenclaws (Alex, Winn and Vasquez) alway hanging out with the Gryffindors (Maggie, Lucy and James). 
  • Together they are unstoppable and no one would dare mess with a single one of them in fear of wrath from the rest.
  • Alex and Vasquez staying up all night in the Ravenclaw common room, gushing about their girlfriends and Maggie and Lucy doing the same in the Gryffindor common room. 
  • No one ever dares mess with Kara because, not only is this ball of sunshine strong af when she needs to be, btu she basically has a whole army willing to fight to protect her. 
  • But why would anyone ever want to mess with her? She is so nice and friendly to everyone. 
  • The Gryffindor quidditch team is amazing. With Lucy Lane as captain and Maggie and James as chasers, no one can rival them.
  • Although Alex Danvers, Ravenclaw captain will give them a run for their money. 
  • Alex is wary of the two Slytherins taking interest in her sister at first but eventually they form the Kara Danvers defense squad. 
  • Kara is a literal puppy and loves making pretty things with magic, so if you see some paper birds flying around the castle or sparkling lights in the halls it’s probably her.
  • Maggie will often sneak into the Ravenclaw common room to visit Alex and sometimes Lucy comes along with her to see Vasquez.
  • On Kara’s birthday they all organise a surprise midnight feast, so Kara wakes up to see everyone in the Hufflepuff common room with as much food as they could sneak out. 

Feel free to add any headcanons you have.

The reality that I’ll never own a house in Australia has been creeping in. Yes, its a huge country but all the agriculture and industries are moving to more coastal places, baby boomers are working longer, its impossible to afford, houses would cost millions and you have no chance of winning against an investor at an auction, politicans are offering no solution to this problem and I’m just so annoyed. 

Please don’t tell me to ‘just rent’. Rent is ridicously expensive, even more than buying and its not a situation I would want to live forever in.

Imagine Sam and Gabriel becoming all fiercely competitive with each other, quite eager to win the “best uncle ever award”, and spoiling Dean’s and Castiel’s daughter to the moon and back with fancy presents and awesome trips to the zoo or theme parks and generally trying to outplay each other, determined to give their little niece the time of her life (and finally make the ultimate win!), and Dean and Castiel watching the whole thing unfold in front of them from the background, smiling amused and wondering when they should tell their brothers that in a few months their family’s going to grow once again and they’ll additionally have another kid to coddle.


dr. phizzles makes soda and hair dye… interesting combo. makes me wonder about brands in the zones. competition would probably be fierce, but controlling a brand or monopoly would make you a killing. (I expect there’d be some hostility towards monopoly owners, but hey, stuff is stuff, and you’ve gotta buy what you’ve gotta buy.) zonerunners would probably make deals to keep branded goods stocked. any other details to add?

I'm addicted to how Evak touch eachother

I don’t like people touching Me but for some reason I love starve craved touches in my otps.

It’s more than just kisses. It’s a - land wherever you will, and I’ll make it to your mouth eventually cause kissing you is about more than lips touching kind of thing.
It’s the fact that when their lips do meet its a competition between fierce breakaways (kissing then parting only to meet and kiss again and again) or slow drags that starts out with an array of foreplay as the eyes meet and the breath mingles before they finally give in and it’s that top lip bottom lip thing as if they’re taking one another in bit by bit.

It’s more than fingers in hair. It’s gliding for comfort, for need, for habit and usually out of wonder at the other person - this is usually Even’s style. It’s gripping and grappling to get closer. And I notice this kind is more Isak’s style. He always alternates between just gliding his fingers through to get that positioning right to just gripping the strands of Even’s hair in the back.

It’s more than skin contact. More than fingers brushing cheek bones, or sliding across shoulders and down backs to rest on the waist. It’s more than eskimo kisses and cheek to cheek rubbing.

It’s the fact that they’re touching before they even make physical contact. And when they do touch it’s about feeding one another, staving off this need they both have. It’s about the system of it all, the atmosphere before the touch, the desire during the touch and then the happiness…the settlement that comes after it.

Ok but listen.

Phillip doesn’t get himself killed in a duel. He marries Theodosia Jr. They talk about their dumb dads and Alex and Aaron enter into a fierce competition for favorite grandparent.

Aaron gives the grandkids sweets and lets them stay up late. Alex gives them the fanciest, best new toys. Family dinners involve careful seating charts to keep them apart so they aren’t passively aggressively sending jabs back and forth all night.

Eliza is the favorite grandparent, anyways.
