Okay but guys we all thought that both Victor and Yuuri started behaving like two embarrasing parents since episode 8, but the truth is they’ve been treating Yurio like their own son since the series started.
Dad trying to give some advice.
REBELLIOUS CHILD THINKS HE KNOWS BEST “DAD, I MADE IT, STOP BOTHERING.”
ALWAYS BEING SUPPORTIVE TOWARDS HIS KID.
THIS BEING ONE OF THE FEW MEMORIES WHICH CAN MAKE HIM SMILE LIKE THAT.
NOW WE HAVE THE PATIENT DAD.
And this… they look like a family on vacations.
THEY JUST WANT THEIR SON TO HAVE SOME FUN.
BUT THE BABY BOY IS JUST TOO CLASSY FOR THIS TYPE OF TRIPS.
“OH FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, DADS, I ALREADY TOLD YOU BOTH I CAN’T TAKE BATHS WITH OTHER PEOPLE, AND WHY CAN’T WE STAY IN A BIGGER HOTEL?!, THIS SUCKS I’M GOING TO BED.“
BUT FIRST GIVE ME FOOD.
AND A BATH. SUCH A DEMANDING CHILD.
Always be sure to teach your kids manners.
“OK YOU TWO, STOP WITH THE FLIRTING! YOUR SECOND HONEYMOON WAS WEEKS AGO.”
Always wants their attention.
PROUD PARENTS. “He’s grown so much…”
“Yeah, that’s our son!”
“We did a good job!”
*THE EMBARRASSING FLIRTING CONTINUES*
“I swear I don’t know them.“
“PLEASE DON’T CALL ME AFTER YOU BOTH KEEP FLIRTING LIKE TWO NEWLY WEDS ON LIVE TV.”
“I’M OUT OF HERE. BYE”
“I’LL CHANGE MY LAST NAME TOO, SO DON’T COME LOOKING FOR ME.”
OKAY BUT JOKES ASIDE, I JUST LOVE THIS BECAUSE VICTOR AND YUURI ARE 27 AND 24, SO JUST IMAGINE, YURIO IS 15, HE IS STILL A KID, WITHOUT EVEN NOTICING IT MIGHT HAVE BECOME A NORMAL HABIT FOR BOTH TO TREAT YURIO AS A YOUNGER BROTHER OR AS THEIR ADOPTED 15 YEAR OLD SON, HOW COULD THEY NOT?
JUST IMAGINE THESE TWO NERDS WHEN THEY ACTUALLY GET TO HAVE THEIR OWN KID?!
don’t have to separate these things with Jefferson. He can have written this incredible
document, and several incredible documents, that we all, sort of- with things
that we all believe in. And he sucks.
think those are both true, and those have to be both true. I think we really
have to stop separating them, ‘cause that’s when you get into trouble. That’s
when you stop letting people be whole people.
it seems like people forget that even if they’re in love, lance and keith are Rivals. they’re Arch Enemies and they wouldn’t let a little thing like dating change that:
keith convinces lance to go on morning jogs with him, but they always turn into sprints real quick bc one boy starts edging in front of the other and so on
“I bet I can kiss you longer without stopping for air.”
“um? no way dude you’re on.”
shiro finds keith and lance making out but they’re both turning blue and keith is punching the wall for some reason? keith breaks away and gasps in a huge gulp of air and screams “DAMMIT” at the same time lance just like. dabs or something
they get into an honest-to-god hand holding contest. whoever lets go first loses.
“guys, we have to start afternoon training.”
“I don’t think you realize the gravity of the situation, shiro. I can’t let keith win. jesus, are you insane?”
“nope. already lost the kissing. I am not about to go o-for-two here.”
everything, absolutely everything turns into a competition, and the more in love they fall the worse it gets.
like, before it was just bc they “hated” each other. but now? goddamn if lance is gonna be shown up by his boyfriend. and keith needs to keep lance’s head from getting too big or he’s unbearable.
who uses the most pet names in a day? one point lance. who reaches out for little touches always? another point lance. makes the other smile the most? keith’s on the board. the best at complimenting?
“your mullet is actually ridiculously attractive and your hair in general is so soft and I would actually commit murder to know your secret.”
“yeah? well, your skin is like, spotless, ok? do you even have pores?”
“it’s called moisturizing, babe. and when I’m stressed I get backne! I’ve seen you shirtless a bazillion times and your body is perfect!”
“no way. don’t even say that. my core needs some serious work. you have abs, lance. I could wash my jacket on those things.”
“I have a good body? have you looked in a mirror? someone carved a v in your hips with a freaking chisel!”
this becomes a regular game over dinner, and team voltron barely even hears them bicker anymore.
just. keith and lance being an Old Married Couple. they were made for each other.
Aries: Let yourself heal. Drink enough vodka to clean out the wounds they left on your insides. It’s okay to shatter sometimes and it’s okay to stand for what’s right. Even if everything hurts, just keep breathing.
Taurus: sometimes making excuses isn’t good enough, how dare you deny someone else their pain. Sometimes a situation is just fucked up and that’s all there is too it. Sometimes it can’t be fixed, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt.
Gemini: Think about yourself for once. Stop putting people before you, even if it’s me. Let yourself rest you can’t keep running ragged all the god damn time. I know you want to protect everyone but you cant. We love you for it, but you cant.
Cancer: Pain is going to end I swear it will. I know it feels eternal right now. If it’s all you can do to hang on then fucking hang on because you’re strong enough to beat this.
Leo: Learn to keep your lips shut because some things aren’t meant to be shared. I know they aren’t told as secrets or at two am but they are still not to be talked about so damn casually.
Virgo: This time of year is always hard. Always scary. But you can pull through. I believe you. Believe that you’re past the hospital visits and all the scary parts of this. You are past it.
Libra: Sometimes cutting up yourself to give others isn’t the best solution. You are not always the missing puzzle piece. You don’t always belong and you won’t always be enough. That’s okay.
Scorpio: Wrap yourself up in bubble wrap if you have to. Keep yourself from getting hurt. Keep yourself from opening wounds again as hard as it is. I know you’re scared. I am too. But you’ll be okay.
Sagittarius: Sometimes recovery Isn’t linear. I know you’ve been fighting for progress but sometimes all you need is a backslide to get a little strength back. I know it’s not easy. But you’ll be okay.
Capricorn: What are you doing? Seriously. What the hell are you trying to do here? You need to say what the plan is so we can get on board. Because all we can tell right now is you’re exploding. We need to know how to pick up the pieces.
Aquarius: Stop being ashamed. Your scars, your wounds, your damage is nothing to fucking hide. If it makes them uncomfortable tell them to fuck off. This is your life and you should be proud.
Pisces: Learn to stop taking so many risks. Running right to the edge one day you won’t be able to stop. Learn how to pull back sometimes. I know it’s hard but it’s all you can do.
So I’m probably going to get hate for saying this but tbh I don’t care about the skin color of TV characters or movie characters. At all.
I don’t friggin care about “whitewashing”
I don’t care if the entire cast is black
I don’t care if the entire cast is white
I don’t care if the entire cast is purple with polkadots made out of the friggin color from H.P. Lovecraft’s “The Colour Out of Space”
LISTEN: You don’t need a character to have the same skin color as you to be able to relate to them.
You do not need a character to have the same skin color as you to be able to enjoy them.
And believe me, I know. I’m not black and yet there are some black characters whom I really relate to and enjoy.
Case in point? Iris West from CW’s The Flash. For the first season I was kinda neutral towards her, but when she landed a journalistic job and became more aware of Barry’s feelings towards her I really started to grow attached. I’m a journalistic writer like Iris, I’ve got two siblings like Iris, I’m here for emotional support like Iris, if my brother/boyfriend was a superhero I’d probably run around getting myself into trouble like Iris, too. #IrisWestIsTheNextLoisLane
My point is that you don’t have to have the same skin color as someone to be able to relate to them!
My point is that skin color doesn’t matter because we’re all humans. People of every ethnicity go through the same struggles, such as:
Vanity & Pride
Yeah basically all the 7 deadly sins
I could go on but I think y’all get the point.
I just can’t see any reason for why we need to have exactly 25% black characters and 25% Asian characters and 25% Muslim characters and–
like, for the love of Dormammu I don’t care, just give me a compelling character who’s going through a relatable struggle
I can understand why it would matter if you’re trying to make a film that focuses specifically on racism, or the Holocaust, or oppression as a key theme. Then I can understand why casting and skin color matters.
But the vast majority of entertainment are about superheroes and ninja turtles and starship captains and elves and teenage drama and adult drama. Most of these shows and movies take place in privileged America where your biggest dilemma is the fact that they took Doctor Who off of Netflix, not the fact that you fear getting shot in the streets because of your skin color.
To clarify: I’m not against having a diverse cast. I’m not saying that we should just turn a blind eye to racism. I’m not saying hate crimes don’t happen in America.
What I’m saying is that if you really want to make a change, focus less on entertainment (which you are so very privileged to receive in the first place) and more on the REAL issues in the world, like the fact that people are dying for being LGBT, women are being raped. Stop complaining about how some dumb TV show didn’t cast enough black people and try doing something substantial for once. Go out and join a club that actually raises funds to help people or something.
I feel like we’re getting worked up over all the wrong things.
This is my favourite moment between the Colonel and his Lieutenant. More than Roy saving Riza from Lust after cauterizing his own wounds with his alchemy, more than him hugging her to his chest after she almost bled to death right in front of him, more than her admitting she would choose death over living without him. This moment - blind Roy performing the now familiar motions of his flame alchemy as Riza steers him - this moment steals my breath and heart.
This one shot encompasses so much of the spirit of FMA, the spirit of fighting when you have nothing left, giving everything you’ve got even - or especially - when you’re at your most broken. He’s blind. She just almost bled to death. And still, they won’t let it stop them. He can still transmute. She can still stand. And together, they can still fight.
And of course, the Royai implications. This side of Mustang must be part of why Riza is so devoted to him (God knows it’s why we’ve fallen for him) - he’s selfless when it matters, resolute in the face of the possibility of death, and, in this moment, every bit as determined as Edward Elric.
Their expressions are a whole story in themselves.
Riza is staring resolutely ahead. You can read, in her gaze, the pain and fatigue from her recent injury, her utter refusal to let that stop her, her steely focus, and her immutable faith that, blind or not, her Colonel can still perform miracles.
And Mustang’s face - good Lord, the emotions in that expression. Frustration at his own weakness, rage over his helplessness, guilt, fury, hatred, fear, desperation… and, somehow, despite all that, trust. He must hate having to lean on someone else, literally, but he’s willing to do it if it means he can still contribute to saving his country. And he trusts her. Remember when he unleashed his fire on the ‘inferi’ fighting Ed & co underground, and he made the flames swerve around his allies? His alchemy is based on control. That’s how he transmutes, because he knows his alchemy kills. And he’s done his share of the killing, enough for a lifetime. But now he can’t see to aim, can’t see to control, can’t see to direct the flames around his friends, his allies, his soldiers. Can you imagine the terror he must feel, blindly unleashing his fire and knowing that he has to hit one man out of the hundreds on that field? And if he hits anyone else, their deaths would be on him. But he’ll still do it, because he trusts her to guide his aim.
She’s the only one left he trusts enough to be his eyes.
So here’s the final breakdown of the Electoral College vote, with graphic from the NYTimes. Interesting that after all the media hype about “faithless” electors being the only way to stop Trump, it’s actually Clinton who lost the most votes from the EC. Apparently she now has the dubious distinction of having the most faithless electors of any presidential candidate in history.
Thank God social platforms didn’t keep quiet this time. The story about a guy who were degraded for speaking Arabic with his mom on the plane went viral. However, this accident is just one of hundreds. Can you imagine how many people who were disgraced and humiliated because of their race didn’t spread the word?
That’s why we need to boycott Delta. They deserve it.
but like how would parents!Victor and Yuuri react to their precious child going on his first dates with Otabek?
LET ME ANSWER TO THE QUESTION.
Both Victor and Yuuri being very supportive but also very weary
“So…this guy you’re seeing uh?” “yurio stop texting that guy, we’re having dinner!!” “but WHO is he?? can we meet him??” “He drives a motorbike? Is that safe?” “Aww Yurio! you look SO happy!! that guy again??”
And Yurio being like “daDS STOP OH MY GOD” “I already told you he’s just a friend!!!” “I text whoever I want whenever I want!” “OF COURSE YOU CAN’T MEET HIM” “yeah totally safe” “dads stoP ASKING THESE QUESTIONS”
Victor and Yuuri freaking out and panicking when Otabek randomly steals their child with his shiny badass motorbike
Victor: “YURIO NO COME BACK”
Yuuri: * already calling the police *
And Yuuri getting all “isn’t he a bit too young???” “maybe we should give him the talk” “what do you mean HE ALREADY KNOWS?? I didn’t know until I was like 18” “VICTOR STOP LAUGHING.”
And Victor getting all emotional “our baby is all grown up and he doesn’t need us anymore. he only needs badass manly guys.” “he’s such a little rebel, isn’t he?” “OMG IS HE GONNA BECOME A CRIMINAL???” “YUURI WE’VE GOT TO STOP HIM”
Victor and Yuuri calling Yurio during his dates with Otabek from different telephone numbers each time because otherwise Yurio won’t answer to their calls
“DADS YOU’RE EMBARRASSING ME SO MUCH OH MY GOD LEAVE ME ALONE”
We have been tasked to stop this big bad guy from wiping the world clean for when the gods return and have monumentally screwed up at every step, including giving him the one item that can actually kill him making him near unstoppable. The only clue we have on how to deal with him is that these armors he created can weaken him somehow. We just finished dealing with his undead horde as he casually walks into the city and tries to fight the Angel that sent us on the quest and just got him to open the door and punch him in the face.
Ranger: Excuse me, but I have a quick question. You see we, as you well know have been tasked with stopping you and also as you know have not done a great job at it. We do know that the armors can weaken you though, but would you mind telling us how exactly to do that?
DM: W-what? Did you really just ask that?
Ranger (ooc): Well yeah, we know he’s basically omniscient and can see everything in the world so he knows we have the armor, it’s not like we can surprise him with it so why not ask?
DM: So just so you understand he just led a massive campaign to kill this Angel guy and right as he’s about to do so and finish the job you just come up and cock block his murderous high. And you thought that was a good idea?
Ranger (ooc): I mean why not what else can we do right now except watch him kill everyone?
Big Bad Guy: sighs Fine if it will get you to leave me alone put the armor in a circle around me to drain my power
