french swimming


If you’ve been longing, pining, craving for more episodes of Free! after Eternal Summer and you still haven’t seen the OVA yet… it’s more Free! than Free!, seriously. Iwatobi and Samezuka acting like absolute adorable dorks? Yeah. INTENSE swimming “friendship?” Yup. Boys in butler (and maid) outfits?




This fourteenth episode was never broadcast in Japan and is all about a cross-school Iwatobi and Samezuka water gun fight. Mako versus Haru. Nagisa versus Rei. Sosuke versus Rin…versus Haru?

You can watch it in the original Japanese and the new English dub on the Free! -Eternal Summer- home video release, out now!

Ben, Belle, and Adam Family Headcanons

Requested: By anonymous: Do you have any headcanons for Ben, Belle, and Adam?

Warnings: none

(Not my GIFS) (accidently made it look like Ben is looking back at his parents in slight embarrassment and I love it)

Ben never had a nanny growing up, Belle and Adam were very hands on. The only times they had someone babysit him was when they had events where children weren’t allowed.
Usually that meant Lumiere and Cogsworth would watch Ben.

Adam would refer to Ben lovingly as pup where Belle would call him her little prince.

Ben would run around wearing his father’s crown or jacket, calling himself the King of Auradon.
Yes there are pictures of this.
Yes Belle will show you them if you ask.

Ben first showed signs of having some beast in him when he was six and got stung by a bee. He got angry and started growling, sprouting little horns in his mop of caramel waves.
It would have been scary, had he not been six, growling at a bee, and just overall looking way too cute to be scary.
It took almost thirty minutes for his horns to go away, and since then he hasn’t gotten anywhere closer to going full beast. He hasn’t even done this again.

Belle taught him French while he was growing up, reading him stories in both French and English.
He is fluent in both (and uses the cuss words in French a lot. Gil bursts out laughing when he hears the king cussing in French)

Ben loved swimming as a kid, and Belle was never able stop him from shaking himself off like a dog fast enough.
Adam wasn’t much help because he did the same thing.
Belle would always scold them, but it was hard to stay mad at two pairs of matching puppy dog eyes.

Ben always wanted to be the same height as his dad.

Ben hated roses up until he was roughly twelve because he made the assumption that all of them were cursed.
He didn’t have time to find a true love, Lumiere said lunch was at 11:30 and they were having Mac and cheese, so no, he didn’t have the time.

Belle and Adam are either the cool parents, or the “cool” parents. There’s no in between.

He admires his parents a lot and loves them deeply.

Belle and Adam couldn’t be prouder of the young man Ben has become, and they look forward to see the amazing King he’ll grow to be.

Also Viktor 1 if you don't mind! :)

(I’m going to assume that this is ‘holiday’ in the European sense in that it refers to vacation? If not I’m sorry but I don’t really know a lot about Russian holidays or how they’re celebrated!)

Viktor spent a VERY LONG TIME not going on vacation at all. He would party with people in whatever city he was in for competitions or interviews or photoshoots but he wouldn’t sit down and plan out a holiday. 

Now that he’s with Yuuri, they holiday somewhat often and always somewhere where they can relax. Viktor knows his husband–Yuuri is a ball of anxiety exactly 23 out of 24 hours of the day, and anything Viktor can do to make him forget everything it’s worried about is a win in Viktor’s book. So they go places that are warm and sunny (But not too sunny because Viktor BURNS) and just take it easy. Their honeymoon is two weeks in a cabin in La Seyne Sur Mer in the French Riviera–the swim and eat food with probably more butter than is healthy for athletes and have sex and don’t leave bed for whole entire days, sometimes. Yuuri is a different person when there isn’t anything for him to worry about–or, at least not anything that Viktor can’t reassure him of. Viktor loves watching the stiffness gradually leave Yuuri’s shoulders and the softness come over his face.

Viktor also really likes those vacations that are like “Let’s see how many interesting things we can shove into a three-day-weekend” and sometimes they do those, like when they went to Bangkok to visit Phichit and the three of them left Phichit’s place at nine every morning and didn’t get back until well past midnight. These vacations are definitely fun, but tend to leave one feeling like they need a vacation after vacation so they don’t do them often.
