had the idea so yeah

Yuuri and Confidence  – from Start to Finish

So, I was just looking at this gif and had a thought. Look at how calmly Yuuri is listening to and taking in Victor’s words. This might not initially sound like anything special but what really hit me was the fact that he has neutral body language and expression. He’s listening.

Yuuri doesn’t have any over-the-top reaction to Victor’s proximity, tone of voice, or words. Especially considering what those exact words are, it really blows me away to realize how much this moment says about both their relationship development and Yuuri’s own self-confidence. Yuuri is able to truly take in the words and see the meaning behind them.

1 year, or even just 8 months, prior, there’s no way he could have reacted like this. There’s no way he could have had such a calm reaction to his idol speaking lowly in his ear while being in such close proximity and certainly no way he could have been able to sit there and listen to these words without feeling like they were some kind of insult to his person or dig at his skill level in comparison to Victor’s.

And, most of all, there’s no way he could have been holding Victor’s hand throughout the entire exchange.

Now, let’s compare it to a choice reaction from early on that covers all of those same points.

Even before Yuuri runs away, his expression and body language are completely different. Now, these are obviously two different situations, but the argument still stands. Yuuri has become comfortable in Victor’s presence.

Yuuri has gained confidence in both himself and his relationship with Victor; enough to put aside his feelings of idolization and see the situation for what it really is. Over the course of his time with Victor, they have grown close enough that Yuuri can see these words as the support they are intended to be, and see Victor as the person he is and not just the skater he looks up to.

On top of that, Yuuri has been able to gain the confidence in his skills to know that Victor is telling him that he can be better than this. Yuuri knows this now, not just dreams it under layers of anxiety and self-doubt, and takes the words as they are intended to be: a way to motivate him to push beyond any moment of doubt and be the best he can be.

Yuuri has achieved two of his longest-term goals, ones he never outright stated but were always there: building his own confidence and getting close to Victor. Through those successes, he also achieved one of the goals he did state, wanting to meet Victor as an equal.

And, as a cherry on top, over the course of the 9 months these two are together, the development of their relationship is so natural that it continues to amaze even to this day. They really do never cease to surprise us.

I promise. This started out as just doodling Shiro… and then the idea invaded my brain and held me hostage unless I made bleach blonde Kuron a reality. He is here. You can pry him from my cold, dead hands!

abrokenseed  asked:

Buttons was in my dream last night. For some reason we were in a classroom setting and he asked about something, but the person in charge said he couldn't do it there so he slunked away with a really weird walk? What even was that, brain?

you abandoned him in a time he needed you the most

“I’m looking for Mme De L’Oradore? Is she at home?”

“Not right now.”

He had his back turned to the door when it opened. Even if the fact that his wards had let the person in hadn’t given him a clue, hearing that purposeful stride as it crossed the room and met him at the minibar told him well enough who it was.

Alexander had returned home.

“Busy day,” Magnus asked, still choosing to not look behind him, as he instead sprinkled some chocolate jimmies over the cocktail he was making.

He felt the weight of Alexander’s head settle on his shoulder as his boyfriend glanced down at the drink. “What are you doing?”

The words brushed over his ears and Magnus had to fight a shiver. He felt more than saw Alexander’s smug smirk and chuckled.

The things that pleased Alexander.

“I figured I might try again,” Magnus replied and reached for the drink. That pulled him out of Alec’s orbit and Alexander grumbled good-naturedly.

“Try what again,” he heard Alexander ask just as he turned around, a drink in each hand to meet those hazel eyes that roamed his face, slow and lingering, like they were mapping every curve and every plane, in a way that never failed to make Magnus shiver, before drifting down to the drinks.

Alec blanched.

Alpha’s Help

Liam x Reader x Scott / Liam x Scott/ Liam x Reader

Summery: Liam normal asks you for help with his heat, but this month he needs a little extra help

Warnings: threesome, anal, oral, Dom!Scott, Sub!Reader, Sub!Liam, Alpha x Beta kink

AN: This is the most cringie and awkward thing i’ve ever written xD but I had the idea for weeks so… yeah, also so much smut!


Liam frowned as you collapsed onto his chest. This had been a deal between the two of you. You’d come over when he needed help with his heat, neither of you would tell Scott because he’d find his own way to deal with it, the two of you were perfectly content with the current situation.

Or at least you had been four hours ago, when Liam convinced you a few more rounds would get his eyes to stop glowing. But he was wrong, you were tuckered out and Liam was to pent up that he was likely to hump anything with a heartbeat that he came across.

“Maybe we should call Scott?” You mumbled as you sat up, straddling him as you watched him carefully.

Your wish is my command!

BALLET AU

  • Inej is a well-known ballet dancer in the New York City Ballet, and she’s slotted to take the leading role in Swan Lake
  • until newcomer Dunyasha swoops down from the Bolshoi and snatches her position from her with perfect poise and grace  
  • Kaz is the new choreographer and initially favors Dunyasha for her brilliant technique
  • but it becomes obvious that she lacks the emotion behind the leading role when tryouts begin 
  • Kaz sees Inej for the first time, and praises her display of emotion and passion however 
  • “You’re a storm. If this were art for art’s sake, there’d be no doubt you’d lead with that dangerous power. But this isn’t contemporary.”
  • announcements are made and instead of making one dancer Odette and Odile (as per usual) Kaz has made Odette Inej and Odile Dunyasha 
  • when Inej sees him again, he remarks that he did this to see if they could challenge themselves to fill in the roles they struggle with
  • of course Dunyasha masters the thirty two fouettés* for Odile’s Pas de Deux* in a week 
  • Inej practices the Swan Queen role with discomfort, trying to look innocent and fragile but it grows too much for her
  • one night, after every dancer has gone, Kaz sees Inej practice the Pas de Deux alone and sees her getting frustrated with every single move 
  • He blurts out suddenly, “I can help you.” 
  • Inej drops her arms silently and just watches Kaz approach, face morphing into one of wonder as he adapts the role of Prince Siegfried 
  • slowly the two of them begin to dance the Pas de Deux for Odette and Siegfried
  • they begin to do this every day 
  • and if Kaz looks a little more wonderstruck when Inej comes ‘flying’ en pointe
  • or if Inej seems to dance a little closer to Kaz’s hands 
  • neither of them say a thing
  • Dunyasha notices the two of them getting closer together and accuses Inej of flirting with Kaz to steal her role
  • Inej: “If I really was, you think I’d request to work with you?” 
  • Inej nevertheless gets wary, and tells Kaz to distance himself from her as she improves 
  • the ballet premieres to rave reviews and already Kaz’s getting requests from all over the world to make ballets 
  • but he politely declines all of them, saying that this was his first and only ballet production
  • on the last night, Dunyasha calls that she injured her legs (something about falling a roof) 
  • Kaz and the corps* are freaking out because it’s ten minutes til curtain until 
  • “I’ll do it. Where’s Dunyasha’s Odile costume?”
  • Kaz turns around so fast he cricks his neck, and sees Inej in her white tutu with a ready expression on her face
  • “But-”
  • Inej smiles a little at Kaz’s doubt. “I had to practice something other than Odette when you were gone.” 
  • the audience leans forward with bated breath as the curtain rises and then whispers break out among them as the ballerina for Siegfried steps out 
  • because this can’t be it, why would Kaz Brekker be performing at his own production? And as one of the leading roles? 
  • by now, the crowd knows Inej plenty and when she steps out of the wings as Odette, the audience grows berserk
  • but when she sees Kaz dressed as Siegfried she stops in her tracks 
  • a tiny smirk starts to form on his lips because he’s one upped her on surprises 
  • together, the two of them dance as the enchanted girl and the prince who falls in love with her 
  • but when the newspapers publish their glowing review of the ballet, they wax lyrical about Odile and Siegfried’s Pas de Deux instead 
  • and how Inej absolutely stunned everyone in her Black Swan Variation and brought the whole audience leaping to their feet when she absolutely floored them with her hypnotic thirty two fouettés (4:19)

*fouettés - a pirouette done by whipping the leg to the side in a circular motion. In Swan Lake, Odile needs to do thirty two of these - a signature and iconic move that’s never been omitted from any SL production. 

*Pas de Deux - literally, step of two where two ballet dancers perform together 

*corps de ballet - ballet company dancers that dance as a collective group (or the lowest ranking members of the ballet)
