figurative journey

lie to make me like you

pairing: victor / yuuri

length: 9 chapters, 80k

It’s become a game, of sorts, to anyone privy to the fact that the pattern exists in the first place: ask Victor out at the beginning of the month, date for however many days, and wait for the end to come and for Victor to say, always: I couldn’t fall in love with you. Let’s break up.

Or, Victor is a retired actor looking for love, and Yuuri happens to be the (un)fortunate soul to unwittingly ask him out at the beginning of the month. Except relationships don’t come with a script, and it’s much harder understanding love than roles.

Pardon? Are you worried about me, by chance?

Kind of embarrassed to post this before pic from January 1st but in the spirit of my honesty and recovery journey, I figured here goes nothing. Besides the obvious physical improvements, I cannot stress enough the inside improvements are way more noticeable!!!! Good diet, exercise, prayer, meetings, vitamins, positive thinking and a career I love are what work for me. I’m gonna keep on doing what I’m doing and hope I can inspire others in my journey.

happy national coming out day everyone !! 💖💛💙 I’m Bradi, a pansexual, panromantic, demigirl (they/them, she/her) and honestly it’s been a journey figuring all that out. but I feel like I finally know who I am and it’s a great feeling. I have so many people who support me and love me unconditionally and I love them so much. and to all of you still in the closet, its okay. no rush. know you’re loved for you and when you’re ready to come out, the world is willing to accept you 💘💛💙

we all know it’s the choreography, but *chandler bing voice* could you look any more in love? // scott’s home is in the crook of tessa’s neck, and tessa’s home is in scott’s arms.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the project! < 3 I appreciate every one of you, as well as the words you contributed. 

Remember that you are valid and should accept yourself for who you are. It’s ok if you do not yet know; life is a journey of figuring the various parts of yourself. Treat everyone equally, regardless of race, identity, or religion. 

Here’s a doc full of the messages if you wish to take a closer look! (x)

Here's a concept: Victor on Ice

A Pre-Yuri on Ice spinoff centered on Victor Nikiforov’s early skating career, told from Victor’s POV. Co-starring Chris Giacometti and a very angry Yakov. Every episode ends with a montage of young Yuuri undergoing his figure skating journey through the years while idolizing Victor

Update: The shows ends where YOI picks up - with Victor and Yuuri meeting/dancing at the Grand Prix afterparty and a drunk Yuuri begging Victor to be his coach. Victor’s story ends where Victuuri’s story begins.

↠ one year.

wow, so it was officially one year ago today that I posted my first story on here. honestly it feels like time has gone by so fast, and I never could have imagined back then how much this blog would mean to me now. I had never really written any type of creative fiction before last year, so I was honestly really apprehensive when I started this whole thing, but I’m so glad I did because I’ve met some of the most amazing people as a result of it. I’ve also learned just how nice people can be over the past year, and I wanted to take a moment to thank anyone who has ever taken time out of their day to send me a message, no matter how short or simple. all of those messages have really meant a lot to me throughout this entire journey of figuring myself out in terms of writing. there were times when I was unsure of everything I wrote, and I still have those moments now, but it’s because of you guys who send me the sweetest and most encouraging messages, that I’m able to push past those insecurities, and so for that I’m sincerely grateful to all of you. last month I hit a milestone that I never thought possible, so I’d again like to thank all of you for that. even if you’re a silent reader who has never sent me a message, I’m still thankful that you liked something about this blog enough to follow it. I could say thank you a million more times to be honest, but I’d just be getting repetitive at this point lol. but I honestly just wanted to make this short little post to tell you guys that getting to share my writing on this platform means so much to me, as do all of you!

also I know it’s probably impossible to see, but these are all of my wips at the moment. I wish I could have been ready to give you guys like a one fic a day type of deal for my one year, but life was happening, so it unfortunately didn’t go that way. but all of these will hopefully be out very soon, some of them I’m extremely excited about, and I hope you all will enjoy them once they’re finally out. again, thanks guys. 💙💙💙

I was practicing some new coloring techniques (btw I’m in love with the pencil tool right now) and I was thinking “hmmm, I wonder what it would look like if I recolored a panel from my old comic?” So I did! Difference of 4 years.

yay improvement? Though I still feel like I’m just beginning my journey to figure out how lighting works! Excited to think where I’ll be in another few years

anonymous asked:

Are there any novels with ace aro protagonists? (Preferably YA, but honestly I'll take anything there is)

In YA the only one I’ve read is Seven Ways We Lie by Riley Redgate (he’s one of 7 protags, and the words aren’t on the page; it’s very much his journey to figuring out that’s what he is), but author Claudie Arseneault keeps a great list of aro and ace SFF with clearly marked categories you should definitely check out: http://claudiearseneault.com/?page_id=1320. There are others I know to have aro characters (e.g. Make Much of Me by Kayla Bashe) but not protags AFAIK..

Other people must have more recs…?

anonymous asked:

So I'm super ace and currently trying to decide my romantic orientation. At the moment I'm pondering over greyro and I was wondering if it's normal to get tons of squishes in between the actual romantic attractions? I mean like, does that happen often for other ace greyro peeps?

I think it does. We all have our different journeys, and figure things out at our own pace.
