finally a picture of these two

And now the special came out and Bloody Mary is completely over in Japan and the final volume’s official release, which is the last Bloody Mary release in the country, is in two hours. However some places are selling the volume for two days now already.

Anyway, this final special was explaining further the end of the manga, so it’s important to read to the fans.

Another new thing in the magazine was: Samamiya-sensei’s next manga has been announced. It has a name, main characters and a starting date already (everything I’m telling you now comes in the picture below, which is a page of the magazine that came out yesterday).

The manga’s name is “Ballad Opera” and its first chapter will come out on May 24th. There’s nothing about it being in any other magazine and Monthly Asuka is released on the 24th, so it’s safe to assume it’ll be serialized on Monthly Asuka. The main character names are (from left to right): Kuro, Haru and Shiro.

There aren’t details about the plot itself so we’ll have to wait to know about that.

With the sale of volume 10 of Bloody Mary, depending on the store, some costumers get this picture of Maria and Bloody (photo source: Monthly Asuka Official Twitter) while others get a picture of Samamiya Sensei’s next work, “Ballad Opera”.

Animate Kamata official twitter (it’s a store in Japan in which you’d magically lose all your money, believe me in what I’m telling you) tweeted the picture of Ballad Opera that is given with volume 10 (source)

Also, a Japanese fan posted a photo of the page at the end of volume 10 of Bloody Mary, in which appear the main characters of Ballad Opera again (here’s the original tweet)

Ok, but is Selena really doing Revival era wrong like this?All the things,the acclaim,the respect of people that she finally got.All this wasted,for a man that don’t even love her.

“My revival” she said…
“You don’t understand i don’t need a man” she said…

“I want my next relationship to be private” she said…
“It should be special between you two only” she said…
“ If you cant handle the hate then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol” she said…


Yuuri tells Victor his thoughts during their first dance.

I want to thank @thehobbem so, so much for co-writing the dialogue! She spent hours going through metas and crafting this line-by-line with me. Yuuri was much harder to write for than Victor and I couldn’t have done it without her tireless work. ;u; I also want to thank @teasidesketches for doing final revisions despite not being in the fandom. You two are the best. <3

I also want to dedicate this to @solfegefaerie for being the first one to give me the idea of writing Yuuri’s vows. They’re not vows this time, but I thought this was suiting. :) 

If you can, you should read this while listening to “Yuri on Ice.” I matched the flow of the comic to that of the song, hence the tribute to the representation of Yuuri as the lone piano until Victor comes into his life as the violin (in case you were wondering about the sudden Music AU thrown in the middle there). 

Pair comic to Victor’s Vows.

Colliding Galaxies in Stephans Quintet : Will either of these galaxies survive? In what might be dubbed as a semi-final round in a galactic elimination tournament, the two spirals of NGC 7318 are colliding. The featured picture was created from images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. When galaxies crash into each other, many things may happen including gravitational distortion, gas condensing to produce new episodes of star formation, and ultimately the two galaxies combining into one. Since these two galaxies are part of Stephans Quintet, a final round of battling galaxies will likely occur over the next few billion years with the eventual result of many scattered stars and one large galaxy. Quite possibly, the remaining galaxy will not be easily identified with any of its initial galactic components. Stephans Quintet was the first identified galaxy group, lies about 300 million light years away, and is visible through a moderately-sized telescope toward the constellation of the Winged Horse . via NASA



@loverofpiggies and @alainaprana are the coolest, sweetest people and are so much fun to hang with! Thank you for letting chill with you broskis!

I loved seeing the fans spot Geno’s picture and then realize ‘that’s freaking CQ!!’ The little one with the bow was so excited!

Although sometimes CQ had to remind us that she’s famous because she’s so down to earth. Alaina in the last picture had a few choice words for our favorite ray of sunshine ;) For real though, these two are the best and I’m so thankful to have finally met them in person! I might have cried when I left >.>

But alas, it is time to hit the road! I’ll post some of my favorite cosplays once I get home. Love you all!

Well, since you guys insisted:

  • Katsuki Yuri: age 23. He retired from professional figure skating two years ago, in order to raise his son, Katsuki Kenjirou (now 2), whose mother is no longer in the picture.
  • Victor Nikiforov: age 27. Divorced single dad, who is raising his ex-wife’s son, Yuri (5), from a previous marriage. He’s still in the competitive figure-skating world, but after having won 5 consecutive world championships and 5 Grand Prix finals, he’s bored, with no one to challenge him. He’s stagnating all by himself at the top of the figure skating world, and he knows it.
  • Yuri Katsuki is also bored. He lives in Japan with his parents, helping out at the onsen during the day, while his mother looks after Kenjiro. And he loves his son, and he loves his family and friends. But he finds himself missing the thrill of competition. He wants to go back to the figure skating world, but at this point, that’s out of the question for him. He has to look after his son, and help out at the onsen, no matter how much his parents assur him it’s okay. And not to mention that he doesn’t have a coach. He can’t very well go back to the US to train under Celestino again, after all.
  • Yuri still skates in his free time though, because skating is his passion and there’s nothing in the world that can make him give it up. So when he sees Victor’s program “Stand By Me,” he’s enchanted. And he decides to try skating it. Because it’s beautiful, and it’ll be a fun way to challenge himself, now that he doesn’t have his own program to practice, or any tournaments to look forward to.
  • When he finally perfects the program, he decides to show it to his friend, Yuuko. Unbeknownst to him though, her daughters film him and upload the video, which promptly goes viral.
  • Victor sees the video, and his curiosity is piqued. He doesn’t recognize this Japanese skater, and he finds that strange - how is someone so talented not a professional? On a whim, Victor decides to pack up his and his son’s lives and move them out to Japan.
  • Victor shows up at Yu-topia, child in one arm and dog in the other and somehow, somehow convinces Yuri to go back to the professional skating world.
  • Victor had originally only planned to stay at Yu-topia until he found an apartment or somewhere to live for him and his son, but the Katsuki family is so nice to him, and they all adore Yurio. And surprisingly, Yurio is pretty well behaved with Yuri’s parents.
  • So eventually they come to an agreement - Yuri’s coaching fee is paid by way of food and board for Victor and Maccachin and Yurio. Mama Katsuki now looks after Yurio as well whenever his father is busy, and at first Victor had wanted to pay her for it, but she refused his money, saying it would just be included as part of the coaching fee.
  • Kenjiro follows Yurio around everywhere, babbling and giggling, toddling along on chubby feet. He’s so clumsy, he trips every five steps. Eventually, Yurio just huffs and rolls his eyes, and holds his hand everywhere they go, to make sure he doesn’t fall and hurt himself again.
  • Sometimes, they’re allowed to go to the ice rink with their dads to watch them practice. Kenjiro is absolutely enchanted by how amazing and pretty his daddy is. Yurio pretends not to be impressed, because he’s seen so many talented people back home in Russia. But really, he’s just as amazed as Kenjiro is.
  • Kenjiro is completely fascinated by the ice, but he’s still way too small to even start learning skating. So one day, Victor ties on his skates, and brings Kenjiro out onto the rink with him. He only skates a few laps around the outside of the rink as they watch Yuri practice, but Kenjiro is just so excited and totally having the time of his life. And Victor is completely smitten with him.
  • Yurio pretends he’s not insanely jealous about it. He has no reason to be, after all - he already knows how to skate. But when Yuri is taking a break from practicing, and when he looks away from the heartwarming scene of Victor and Kenjiro, he notices Yurio standing off on the sidelines, stubbornly not looking at the rink. Not wanting him to be left out, Yuri skates over and sweeps the child into his arms, ignoring Yurio’s startled squawk, and his protests that he’s too big for this kind of thing. Yurio just smiles and readjusts Yurio’s koala grip, and effortlessly glides over to where Victor and Kenjiro are still making their laps. Yurio hides his face in Yuri’s chest for for the first little bit, refusing to look up because he can’t wipe the shy, excited smile off his face.
  • When Yuri and Victor have to go to China, Yurio kicks up a fuss until he’s allowed to go with them. Kenjiro is still too young to go, because he’s still at the age where he needs constant attention, and Yuri and Victor as busy as they are, they won’t have time to look after him. He stays at home with his grandparents. It’s the first time since they met that Yurio and Kenjiro will be separated for such a long period of time. Yurio won’t admit how much it gets to him.
  • Yurio shares a bed with Yuri at the hotel. Victor whines about it for half an hour. He doesn’t know which of them he’s more jealous of.
  • Yurio watches Yuri’s performances together with Victor. He doesn’t even try to hide how amazed he is after Yuri’s free skate program. And he actually somehow manages to make it to the kiss and cry area even before Victor does.
  • Yuri smiles, big and soft and sweet, when he sees Yurio waiting for him with stars in his eyes and beaming a smile as bright as the sun. Yuri holds his arms out for a hug as he skates towards the five-year-old.
  • “Did I do good, Yuratchka?” he asks, and Yurio takes a running leap into his arms.
  • “You did good, daddy!”

A/N: Finally! Omg, I hope you guys enjoy this part. Sorry it’s a little short, but I wanted to put out something today.

Steve’s lips against your own was something you had wanted for a while. Hell, you knew there was something between the two of you that went further than the friendship that had blossomed. Yet when his lips parted to take your bottom one, you couldn’t revel in the sensations, you couldn’t let yourself get lost in how good it felt and how you had desired this for so long.

The ring on your fourth finger suddenly weighed too much and your eyes opened. Stiffening, you pulled away from Steve, shaking your head as you tried to not look as guilty as you felt. He looked momentarily startled before a range of emotions flitted over his face that let you know that he wasn’t happy about having the kiss be cut short.
