top 5 yuya moments in arc v. whatever you consider a 'yuya' moment.

hoooo boy ho boyyyyy this is the hardest thing i’ve ever had to do i think ugh like i love this entire show? so how do i choose just five???? uggggghhhh but here goes

note: so this list turned out to be top Yuya moments in his duels. I wouldn’t say his Top Duels. That would be some other list. also I wanted this list to be about true Yuya, not him being in berserk mode or possessed, so I avoided that. These are some of my faves, but not all. But even if I ever make another list or modify this one, I know for certain #1 stays #1 so…

5. ep 61 - His duel against Enjoy Chojiro. I feel like this is a moment that gets forgotten for some reason but it’s the exact kind of thing that Yuya lives for? His stubborn attitude and faith in himself and in his Entertainment dueling actually put a smile back on Chojiro’s face and basically ended up giving the guy his life back. Like. c’mon. It may not have been a significant duel but it’s a perfect display of what he’s capable as an Entertainment duelist.

4. ep 122 -  Oh shit. A controversial choice for this list maybe? Since apparently not a lot of people liked the BB arc (tho I actually enjoyed it wow). But anyway, I like this one because basically, despite all the messed up shit BB put them through, Yuya actually finds a way to relate to his enemy and in doing so finds a way to communicate his intentions to him in a way that his enemy can understand. The fact that he’s able to pull off such a nice Entame in such a bleak looking duel too… I really love that. It’s a light of hope in an atmosphere that has lost all of it. *cries* I really loved it.

3. ep 79 - His duel vs Shinji. I mean.

He’s not exactly trying to entertain anyone in this one but that doesn’t stop him from a) surprising the crowd and his opponent and b) teaching everyone a lesson in having a little more faith even in dire situations. Plus I just love that he made Shinji and everyone who called Tuning Magician “useless” eat their own words. Also, Enlightenment Paladin is really fucking rad. And it’s hist first Synchro Summon and he does it pretty much all on his own aaaaa.

Oh right. He also made Jack Atlas smile for the first time. So there’s that too.

2. eps 50/51 - Okay there are so many reasons why I love this moment. First off, the duel was fucking amazing. Like… the duel itself had a plot twist at the end, even after all those close calls Reiji seemed to have had and all those seemingly perfect moves Yuya was pulling. Secondly, the fruitshipping evidence in this is unreal. But lastly, why I’m placing it on this list as one of my favorite moments for Yuya… is because of his conviction.

Not to mention… the foreshadowing.

Just… throughout the show, it seems like he was getting none of this done. He didn’t get Yuzu back or keep his promise to Yuto to make everyone smile until the very end. And the desperation in his eyes and in his voice to not want to lose and to win on top of the irony that he doesn’t want to win to please anyone through violence… it’s just… sadly magnificent knowing what happens later on in the story and who he truly is (Zarc).

Reiji pushes him to the opposite of his entertainment persona, which later on we see develop in a much grander light, but this is basically the point we see clearly how flawed Yuya is and the fact that his character goes through a deconstruction throughout the entire story is honestly so good in a VERY refreshing way. Any other show would usually have the protagonist fulfilling his convictions at a much earlier point with lighter consequences in order to validate his feelings here but I’m glad they didn’t do that with Yuya.

I know my explanation for why I love this moment of his might seem odd but like… he’s far from a perfect protagonist and I absolutely love that so much about him.

1. My absolute favorite moment of his is episodes 31/32 aka his duel vs Shingo during MCS.

This is, of course, the very definition of what an Entertainment Duel is. Everything about it is true entertainment. But there’s a big difference in this duel than all other Entertainment duels Yuya participated in, I think. And that’s

… his own. True. Genuine. Smile.

Born out of his own excitement for the duel. For himself. Not for the crowd. Not for any of his friends.

For himself.

I know very well that it’s not true that to make others smile, you have to smile yourself first… but honestly, happiness translates so much better when you yourself truly are happy. It’s just so much easier to make others happy that way.

For that reason I LOVE this moment to death. This is why, imo, this was the best Entertainment duel he pulled off in the show. He wasn’t dueling to win or to win over the crowd (explicitly, at least). He was mainly dueling to push himself and to have fun with it, and the crowd’s excitement later arising from seeing him like that is incredibly realistic.

I can say so because… well, I was basically a part of that cheering crowd.

I loved all his duels up to this point but damn this one in particular… I was like… Entertainment Dueling. Is. Real.

Yeah believe it or not, I was still not convinced until this duel. My gods. What a life changer.

I love Yuya Sakaki.

Searching for blogs to follow

Recently started using Tumblr again and would love some more content to distract me from what I’m actually meant to be doing. So if your blog consists of any of the following, please like/reblog this post and I’ll follow you. (Also, not required but I appreciate any follows in return *wink wink*)

  • The Professor Layton series
  • The Phoenix Wright series
  • Over the Garden Wall
  • Humour - (like, meme humour. I really don’t have high standards)
  • Science - (Any sort of science. God I love science.)

i’ve been playing GNGK on loop these past few days so here i gained a bunch of new headcanons for Guilty Kiss:

  • Mari picked up guitar skills when she was in America. She mostly plays her fav industrial metal songs but when the mood hits her during lazy days, she grabs her acoustic guitar instead and plays very chill songs that Riko and Yoshiko find it very calming.
  • ‘Guilty Night, Guilty Kiss’ was actually originally played on an acoustic guitar before they redid it to the current version to match Strawberry Trapper. They still kept some of the acoustic parts to play in the background tho bc it sounds nice. (no im serious if u listen to GNGK carefully, there really is an acoustic guitar playing in the background)
  • Mari and Riko discuss the music composition while Yoshiko plans out what they’re gonna wear bc since the first album, they’ve discovered they can’t trust Riko to properly coordinate on her own.
  • Yoshiko’s also the one who mostly deals with the stage technicalities (ie lights, effects, etc) bc she has the most experience with it due to her ‘Yohane Videos’.
  • Lyrics are mostly Mari and Yoshiko’s doing. Riko gets v embarrased and flustered when she reads them. “I won’t restrain myself, I want to steal away the things I desire- HOW ARE YOU TWO EVEN COMING UP WITH THESE?!”
  • Riko worries over the ‘shamelessness’ of the lyrics a lot but when it’s time for the actual performance, she’s actually the one who sings them most seriously which makes Mari and Yoshiko exchange ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) looks behind her back.
  • Guilty Kiss is the sub-unit most prone to get injuries. It’s not that any of them are clumsy but between Yoshiko’s weird luck for accidents, Riko’s impromptu acrobatic escapes, and Mari being a combination of excitable and distractable (i.e. moving too fast that she snags on something, bumping into things when she’s too busy teasing Kanan or Dia to look where she’s going, lunging at the two for a hug without care if they’re holding something)… well. 
  • To everyone’s surprise, it’s Yoshiko who gets v responsible about taking care of the injuries. She’s even taken to lugging around a first aid kit bc none of her groupmates can be trusted to treat themselves properly. “It’s just scratch?” “Mari-senpai you’re bleeding over your socks.” “Oh!”
  • Yoshiko actually goes ‘Annoyed But Actually Worried Mom’ Mode on them when they get injured. “You’re both older than me, aren’t you two supposed to be more responsible than this??”, she grumbles as she disinfects Riko’s scrapped hands while Mari curiously prods at the skull-covered band-aid Yoshiko had plastered to her knee. It’s an unexpected dynamic but it works really well.

I  want  a    ‘    Chloe    &    Adrien  get  stuck  somewhere  together    &    after  initially  acting  like  an  obsessed  fool,    we  finally  get  to  see  a  normal  Chloe    &    Adrien  relationship  where  she  isn’t  fawning  all  over  him    &    it’s  a  glimpse  of  their  childhood  friendship    &    honesty    ’    scene.    So  basically,    a  continuation  of  Pixelator.

so who else is watching 13 reasons why on netflix right now because hooooo boy it’s really good and i really want to read the book again but also it’s kind of ruining me right now???/

4. Kissed anyone?

I haven’t! I’m also not in any rush honestly.

9. What’s your dream job?

I just had a presentation on this! It’s complicated though… I’ll try to make this simple. 

Essentially I’d be a lawyer (I want to focus on foreign affairs, immigration, and civil liberties) while also being a musician and an activist. My ideal situation would be getting my S.J.D. (I’m aiming to be a Doctor of Jurdicial Science) and maintaining my musicianship which would be influenced by my activism. 

In a nutshell: I picture myself as this cool lawyer with a sick activist discography, making the world a better place one case, and one bass* at a time. 

*I’m a bassist.

10. Ever been in love?

Can’t say that I have…

33. Best day of your life?

Hands down it was the day I found out I got a full scholarship to college. 

I was on the phone with my cable company trying to fix my internet and the lady told  me to check my email and coincidentally, the acceptance letter was at the top. Needless to say I cried ridiculously hard with her and my mom, it was a special moment.

You Wanna Find Out Some Personal Shit?

Second thing for @aceattorneycollab! Some Juniper Woods, uniform version. I’m on this case in dual destinies right now :’3. Ah, it’s good to see Klavier. =/ I keep wondering how the bonus pre-order things with edgey and klavier will work with the english release of aa6.

I sure unintentionally picked the ones with flowers in their hair…..

anonymous asked:

Hey Matt, I was wondering what flowers you like? I've started drawing flowers on my skin when I get dysphoric bc it helps distract me and I need some more different flowers.

i don’t actually really know flower names,when i draw flowers i kinda just draw vauge flower shapes

 roses are fun though because of how their petals are, flowers that are mostly petals are nice

Imagine you and bestfriend!Woozi making too much noise from joking around in the study hall and getting lots of dirty looks from everyone around you two.

New Studyblr!

Hello! My name is Isela, and I’m starting a new studyblr today :)I’m a student at the University of Chicago. I’ve tried this before but I lost track of it when school started so I thought I’d try again! 

I’m a math major attempting to learn French. I can only function after many cups of coffee, I love love love the feeling of warm rain and fluffy blankets, and I spend so much of my day in the library that I’m actually starting to enjoy it.

In terms of study music, I listen to basically anything that has lyrics (instrumental music actually distracts me more??). Some of my recent playlists include Halsey, P!ATD, Childish Gambino, Melanie Martinez, and EDEN. 

Some of my favorite studyblrs are @elkstudies, @areistotle, @goodgrades-goodcoffee, @emmastudies, @study-ings, @my-little-studyblr, @pianoandstudy, @milkystudies, @nehrdist, @jasmine-and-totoro, @studyign, and @pleasegostudy. Hopefully I can create a studyblr anywhere near as great as theirs! 

I love talking to people honestly, so please feel free to message me or ask questions. I would love to make friends and talk about anything, like study habits or music or interests or anything :)

Okay so I need some distraction so pls give me more sneaky clexa pls

oh boy like. they had so many close calls, long before abby caught them? like, having a family movie night and clexa sharing a blanket and a huge comfy chair. clarke’s nimble fingers fully exploiting the fact that lexa’s sweatpants are two sizes big because lexa likes her home sweatpants large and cozy. cupping her between her legs. lexa doing her very best to stay silent as she pinches clarke’s arm, silently telling her to quit it; clarke does, giggling, but her hand remains on lexa’s waist, and somehow lexa’s head ends up on her shoulder.

oh but car rides. mr. woods driving and abby seated in front. and, for reasons, the car is fully loaded; so there’s only one seat available in the back, and clarke ends up in lexa’s lap. it’s a bumpy ride, lexa’s dad says apologetically, but clarke doesn’t mind at all; each bump drives lexa’s fingers deeper inside her, summer dress hiked up and her thong pushed to the side. clarke’s always been loud, tho, so lexa wasn’t sure if this was such a good idea; but clarke laces their fingers, squeezing lexa’s free hand, and stoically stays silent through her orgasm.

So for the first day of the 10 day study challenge I cleaned up my work space which was actually really calming. It’s still a bit cluttered but honestly having it be too empty would be more distracting for me. I worked on some geometry, chem, and english but I still have apush reading left 🌻

17. Midwest. If you wanna talk, I can supply lots of dog pictures– if you’re into that of course. I like so many different types of music and love music recommendations.

Come distract me some more and say hi or something. :-)

#29 - You're Studying Too Much

Liam: You rub your eyes and take another sip of your now stone-cold coffee, staring at the math practice sheet in front of you. Your hands are trembling with the caffeine and your mind is working faster than your body can keep up with, so you feel sluggish and stiff. The clock at the other end of your kitchen table beeps - it’s now exactly four am.

You place your pencil back onto the blank piece of paper and begin mumbling to yourself as you work through the problem, “Write out a proportion. There we go, okay. Okay, so now cross multiply. Write that there… No. Crap. Okay, try again. Breathe, (Y/N), Fourteen x minus twenty-one is equal to one-hundred and five so all we do now is…” You pause, your pencil hovering over the paper. This is easy math, you know it’s easy math, yet the figures are blurring in front of you. You know it’s probably from exhaustion, but you refuse to stop studying.

“(Y/N)? You’re still up?” You hear Liam’s sleepy voice from behind you and drop your pencil in shock.

“Yeah… just trying to finish studying.” You try to sound chirpy but the six cups of black coffee are making your voice tremble.

“Babe, you need to stop.” Liam gently pushes your papers and books aside and wraps his arms around your waist, his chin rested on your shoulder, “You’re driving yourself insane.”

“But I’ll fail…” You whine, reaching for your books. But Liam moves them further away.

“No, you’re coming to bed now, okay? You’re exhausted.” He kisses your cheek softly, “You’ve studied for nine hours straight, (Y/N). That’s enough.” You sigh as you get up from the stool and suddenly get a head rush after sitting in the same position for so long. Your legs shake as you nearly fall back, but Liam catches you and laughs, “What would you do without me?”

“I wonder.” You giggle.

Niall: "Ugh!“ You groan, pounding your head onto your textbooks, "I don’t get this!” You straighten up and reread the information on the pages, but you can’t absorb any of it. The setting sun makes the whole room glow in a pinky-orange light. You hear Niall open the bathroom door and emerge in a blue button up shirt and dress pants. 

“(Y/N), aren’t you going to get ready for the party?” Niall asks, sitting on the chair opposite you.

“Niall, I don’t think I can go.” You sigh as you scrape your hair back into a bun, “I have this exam next week and I can’t remember anything and…”

“What’s Newton’s first law?” Niall interrupts you.

“An object in motion must stay in motion unless acted upon by an unbalanced force. An object at rest must stay at rest unless acted upon by an unbalanced force. What’s the point of this?” You roll your eyes.

“Newton’s second law?” Niall continues without explanation.

“F=ma.” You answer.

“And third?” Niall is smiling slightly at this point.

“Every action has an opposite and equal reaction.” You reply.

“There. You’ve studied.” Niall grins and shuts your text book triumphantly.

“There’s a whole lot more to College Physics than just Newton’s Laws.” You reopen the text book to resume studying.

“And there’s a whole lot more to a weekend than studying Physics for eight hour stretches. Come on, (Y/N), you’ve studied all weekend.” He takes your hand as he re-closes the book, “Please, come as my plus one? You know I hate these party things if you’re not there with me.”

“Fine.” You mutter and close the book, “But we leave after two hours, max. Deal?”

“Deal.” Niall grins and kisses you softly, “Thanks, babe. You won’t regret it.”

Louis: "(Y/N), when did you wake up?“ A sleepy Louis wanders into the kitchen, hair ruffled and eyes sleepy.

"I don’t know, like five?” You shrug, not tearing your eyes away from your computer. You turn back to your notecards and scribble something down, frowning as you take another note.

“Love, have you eaten breakfast?” He asks, rummaging around the kitchen.“

"No… no time.” You point at the glass of water next to your laptop, “I’m drinking water, see?”

“Water isn’t breakfast.” You hear Louis pouring you a bowl of cereal and you sigh, beginning to mumble to yourself. Okay, maybe you’d been awake till three last night. And maybe you’d only slept restlessly for the two hours of sleep you had gotten. But you needed to study, so sleep and food were on the back burner.

“Nineteen seventy-three…” You mutter, “What happened in nineteen seventy-three?”

“You started studying.” Louis chuckles at his own joke and you shoot him a death glare, “Oh come on, babe, you’re driving yourself insane!”

You sigh and continue rummaging through your note cards, looking for the date in your messy handwriting. Louis slaps a note card onto the table in front of you with nineteen seventy-three printed on it, and the answer to your question underneath it. You try to smile at him gratefully but your smile shakes and flops back into a frown, “I’m so going to fail this test.”

“Stop studying, (Y/N).” Louis pulls the notecards from your hands on closes your computer, “You look like a panda. A very cute panda, but pretty girls shouldn’t look like pandas. Go sleep, and we’ll go out tonight.. Yeah?”

“But, Louis…” You whine, but he pulls you to your feet and kisses your forehead.

“Sleep, love. Please.” He sighs and you smile, giving in to your exhaustion and slumping off to your bedroom.

Zayn: You turn the page, not absorbing any of the information on the page and mumbling the Spanish words as you read. You can say them, sure, but you can’t understand them. And this test is both an oral and a comprehension. So, in essence, you’re screwed.

It’s just gone three in the afternoon and Zayn had a recording session. After banning you from studying all weekend, you decided to cram as much in as you could for the six hours he’d be gone. You had studied all week, but nothing was sticking.

“Las peliculas de Espana son muy…” You freeze, squinting at the next word. But it’s blurring. The letters start to mix themselves up and you rub your eyes to try and get your vision back, but it remains blurred. You feel your heart rate start to speed up. Why can’t you read the words? Why are they all blending together?

You blink several times, trying to clear your vision. But to no avail; you still can’t read the article and you’re giving yourself a headache. You know you should get up, even just for a thirty second break for a glass of water. But you can’t stop studying, or you’ll fail. You still have a whole thirty minutes before Zayn gets home.

Or, at least, you thought you did.

“(Y/N), is that a textbook I see?” You hear the door click shut and Zayn walks in. He stands behind you, “I told you not to study this weekend, babe.”

“I know, but I’ll fail the bloody test if I don’t and not graduate college!” You sigh, exasperated, “We can’t all be bloody popstars, Zayn.”

“I know,” He nods, “I know that. But, (Y/N), you’ve been taking Spanish for eight years now. Give yourself some credit. I’m sure you know more than you think you do.”

“But I don’t, Zayn! The words are all blurring and I have a headache because I’m thick and…” You trail off.

“You’re not thick, (Y/N). You’re unbelievably smart. Look at you, already halfway through college with straight A’s. You wouldn’t have made it this far if you were stupid.” He rubs your shoulder and places one hand over your trembling one, “If you’ve been studying since I left, that makes it about six hours. Do you not realise how insane that is?”

“It’s different, Zayn. I have to pass this test or-”

“Or what? You’ll fail? It’s not your final, (Y/N). It’s one test. Don’t study so hard or you’ll stop absorbing information, like you are now. Let’s go out for a movie. Just us two, okay? You need a break.”

“But Zayn,” You hesitate. Even though Spanish is mind-numbingly boring and you’d rather go watch Frozen for the fiftieth time with Zayn and huge tubs of popcorn, you’re also tempted to keep studying. But Zayn is right, maybe a break would do you good, “Fine. Just one movie.”

Harry: You stand up straight and close your eyes, rereading your monologue one more time.. You have a recitation tomorrow and you’ve always struggled with memorisation, so this is exceptionally difficult for you.

“To be, or not to be. That is the question.” You repeat out loud, “Whether tis nobler in the mind to… uh…” you sigh deeply. This isn’t working. You pick up the piece of paper and scan over it again.

“To be, or not to be. That is the question. Whether tis nobler in the mind to suffer the bows and arrows of misfortune…” You pause, “That’s not quite right.”

“Love, haven’t you been doing this for six hours?” Harry walks into your study room, concern all over his face.

“Well, Harry, this is difficult.” You huff, “And I have to memorise it.”

“But why? Isn’t your class on Friday?” He asks, sitting in the spinning chair at your desk and facing you, “That gives you six days, (Y/N), and plus, you look exhausted.”

“I’m fine.” You snap, but you’re really not. He’s right. Well, almost. You’ve actually been doing it for nine hours, but Harry was asleep for the first three. You know you’d rather stop now and continue practicing another day, but you’re far too stubborn. So you begin again, ignoring Harry entirely.

“To be, or not to be. That is the question. Whether tis stronger-”

“Nobler.” Harry corrects.

“Nobler in the brain-” You continue, shooting Harry a dirty look.

“Mind.” Harry corrects again.

“Nobler in the mind to endure-”

“Suffer, babe. It’s suffer.” He corrects for a third time and you sigh.

“It's you, Harry. You’re distracting me.” You glare at him accusingly.

“Well, then let me distract you some more.” He waggles his eyebrows and you laugh, even though you feel like crying, “She laughs?! Shocker!”

“Shuttup, Haz.” You laugh harder.

“There’s my beautiful, smiley girl.” He stands up and kisses you softly, “Wanna go to sleep?”

“But, Harry…” You frown, looking back down at your monologue paper.

“No buts, (Y/N). It was a rhetorical question.” He picks you up and slings you over one shoulder, making you drop your paper. And, despite everything, you don’t bother picking it back up.

I do wonder though,
When you are with the girls that you use as distractions If you ever miss me. Or in some ways are they more than I could ever be. Do they show you what I’m not? Or did I show you what their not?
