(A/N): *cringes*

Request: A soulmate AU with Natasha where one of them (reader in this case) is blind but also part of the X-men and they meet eachother and reader realizes that Nat is they’re soulmate bc they’re able to see (I LOVE YOUR SOULMATES AU)

Warnings: none? 

Originally posted by scar-jorules

   (Y/N) had spent their entire life not being able to see, for years everyone had theorized that it was all part of their mutation. They were enhanced in every other sense except sight, great hearing, great sense of taste, everything about them was amplified other than the fact they couldn’t see. They may have been able to run a mile in under two seconds but they couldn’t see, they may have been able to lift a car leisurely if they wanted and yet they had never seen what a tree looked like, they could run around for hours and never get tired due to their stamina but they had never seen the sky. 

   It was a little discouraging to say the least, (Y/N) didn’t even know what they looked like, they didn’t know what grass looked like or what a kitten looked like, they had never even seen the color of water or blood. But (Y/N) wasn’t complaining, they had gotten around without their sight just fine for years and years.

    If anything was worth complaining about it was the mother of all headaches (Y/N) got after being able to see again. It was unexpected, strange, and downright scary but as soon as (Y/N) realized what was going on they calmed down quite a bit. It was their soulmate. Their soulmate was finally here. 

   Everyone in the world had a soulmate, everyone also had a way of knowing when they met their soulmate, guess for (Y/N) it was being able to see for he first time. 

   They’d been training with Jean Grey, their best friend at Xavier’s school for gifted youngsters when a sudden voice rang through their head’s; Charles’ voice. 

   "All staff and team members report to the dining hall immediately,“ (Y/N) looked towards where they assumed Jean was before shrugging a bit and walking out of the room. (Y/N) didn’t need any form of any assistance in walking, due to their amplified hearing they managed to navigate the world via vibrations, just like a bat. They knew the entire layout of the school better than anyone else, they could tell you exactly what was where just by taking a few steps down a hall; another piece of their amazing powers.

    (Y/N) smirked as they jogged up some stairs, leading them right into the dining room. 

   "Ahh, (Y/N), you’re here," 

   "Yeah,” (Y/N) smiles towards Charles’ voice. “I just got done training with Jean, she should be up soon," 

   "Good. Very good. Did you happen to acknowledge the fact that we have guests with us today?” (Y/N) listens intently to the air, listening for the vibrations of the so called guests. (Y/N) smiled softly as they tapped their foot, listening to the vibrations that came afterwards.

    “Well- I’ve noticed them now,” (Y/N) chuckles as they take a step towards the dining room table where the guests were all sitting. “Hi, I’m (Y/N),” There was a collection of soft hello’s and hi’s before the group fell silent again. 

   "(Y/N) is one of our most extraordinary mutants here, they’re blind as you can tell but somehow their ailment has only proved to make them stronger. Improved hearing, sense of touch and smell, incredible strength and speed, anything you can think of (Y/N)’s sure to have it.“ (Y/N) blushes a bit at Charles’ words, casting their ‘gaze’ towards their feet. "If you don’t mind (Y/N) will be joining us on our little tour today, I hope that’s okay with you all,” The group all quietly murmurs a yes, some louder than others. “Great, well then, lets get going,”

    Charles’ led the group through all the halls, through the dorms, through control and training rooms, through every possible room in the mansion in fact. The group would all ask questions now and then to which Charles would answer immediately. (Y/N) had remained primarily silent the entire time, just following along but that all changed when suddenly there was a soft voice beside them. 

   " hi, I’m natasha,“ (Y/N) was almost startled by the voice, nearly jumping out of their skin but they quickly laughed it off. 

   "Um…I’m (Y/N) but you already knew that…" 

   "So you’re part of the x-men?” (Y/N) nods, humming softly.

   "And you’re part of the-?“ 

   "I’m part of the Avengers…” (Y/N) stops in their tracks, immediately looking towards Nat’s voice. 

   "Oh my god, are you serious?“

   "Uh yeah…”

   "I’ve heard all about you guys!“ (Y/N) smiles excitedly, like a child on Christmas morning. "What you did at Washington was really incredible,”

   "oh- well, thank you! I’ve been reading about the whole 1970’s thing, that was some pretty incredible stuff, I mean, what you did to help Logan was absolutely amazing-“ Nat reaches out to touch (Y/N)’s shoulder and that’s when it happened. All of sudden the world exploded with light and color, leaving (Y/N) to reel backwards in surprise. 

   It took quite a few moments for (Y/N) to adjust but when they did the sight that greeted them nearly took their breath away. They could see. They could finally see. They could see colors and the intricate wall designs, they could see Charles for the first time, they could see all the avengers, but more importantly they could see Nat. She was beautiful, the most beautiful thing (Y/N)’s eyes had ever seen, and she really did take their breath away. 

   ”(Y/N) are you alright?“ Charles wheels towards them, concern lacing his voice. 

   "Oh my god Charles,” (Y/N)’s voice quivers with emotion. “Oh my god I can see, I can see you,” Charles looks at them strangely for all but two seconds before he’s smiling widely, nearly beaming at the mutant.

   "(Y/N), I think we’ve found your soulmate,“ Charles gestures to Nat, who looks nearly as awestruck as the rest of everyone else. Her beautiful eyes were wide with surprise, her lips parted slightly. She was the epitome of beauty. 

   "Are you- are you serious?” (Y/N) asks, tears now sliding down their cheeks effortlessly.

    “I knew from the moment Nat stepped in the mansion, I was just waiting for you two to figure it out,” (Y/N) sighs shakily, running a hand through their hair. Their sight and soulmate in one day, this had to be a dream. 

  (Y/N) looks towards Nat, eyes filled with hope. Nat mirrors the same expression, both parties hoping against hope that what Charles was saying was really true. 

  “I believe this is the point you should embrace each other-” Charles chuckles lightly as he looks between the two, waiting for one of them to react. The two share one last look before they’re suddenly tangled together, hugging tightly, lips connected.

    So, that’s how (Y/N) regained their sight, that’s how they were they were today, curled up beside Nat as she taught them colors for the first time.

    “Okay this is-" 

   "Blue,” (Y/N) smiles proudly at themself as Nat shows them a picture of the ocean.

    “Good job!” Nat coos, beaming at he soulmate. “And what color is this?” Nat asks as she tugs at a piece of her flaming red hair. (Y/N) smiles as they leans forward, gently pressing their lips to Nat’s.

Prolouge Part I Part II


Here’s the prologue to my version of Hades and Persephone 

didn’t get too creative with the title haha 

I’m very nervous to post it. I saw other artists do a much better job with the story, but I really didn’t want to give up all the work I did just because of that.

The first actual chapter will come out soon! I’m looking forward to sharing it!

I’ll probably post here and on Tapastic eventually, so if you like Tapastic’s layout better than tumblr’s, there will be that.

I will have to re-size all these pages because I wasn't thinking

Reaction to You Watching/Fangirling Over Other Member's Focus to Artificial Love. . .

exobiasaday said: Your layout is so aesthetically pleasing, I love it! I wonder how each EXO member would react to catching you watching/freaking out over their focus of an Artificial Love performance. Or better yet, them catching you you watching /another/ member’s focus :O oooooo scandalous! Either one… or both!

Reaction to You Watching/Fangirling Over Other Member’s Focus to Artificial Love…

[Suho’s focus >here, Kyungsoo’s focus >here, Chanyeol’s focus >here, Xiumin’s focus (bruh,,,it’s like he’s dancing RIGHT THERE with you..?) >here, Yixing’s focus (again,,he’s reaaally close to the camera,,so be ready) >here, Chen’s focus >here, Kai’s focus >here, Baekhyun’s focus >here, and Sehun’s focus >here]

A/N okay, so i’m not going to do Luhan’s, Tao’s or Kris’ reactions, cause,,,,,,, they weren’t there for Artificial Love (cue heart pains) so,, this reaction will be three down,,,,i hate myself for saying that. and if you didn’t tell by the title of the reaction i’m doing you watching another member’s focus, ‘cause i have a shitload of other reactions i need to get to so i can’t do both, sorry,, but i hope you like!

Kai Eonni ~


When he saw you watching Kyungsoo’s focus he’d be a little hurt (more than a little, but he has pride so..) but he’d act like it wouldn’t bother him, though he would wonder if he wasn’t sexy enough for you to watch his focus, or if you secretly had feelings for Kyungsoo. Though he would down play this whole situation and wouldn’t tell you his insecurities or worries after seeing you watch Kyungsoo’s focus. 


He’d be open about his dislike for you watching Chanyeol’s focus, he’d believe in order to have a good and steady relationship you need honesty, so he wouldn’t hesitate to speak his mind. It wouldn’t be that he’s insecure, but more that he believes that this shouldn’t be something that either of you do. He’d state this thought and then leave it to you to choose if you’re going to continue watching or are gunna respect his wishes.


Seeing you watching Xiumin’s focus would unsettle him, but he’d play it off and would joke, asking if you admired Xiumin’s dancing or if you preferred Xiumin’s dancing over his own. He wouldn’t show you that it made him unsettled, but he would dwell on this for a while, and during dance practices he would watch Xiumin and try to pick up on some of Xiumin’s dancing skills to integrate into his own.


When he saw you watching Yixing’s focus, he’d rationalize with himself, and honestly his insecurities and jealousy would only last for at most ten seconds. He’d reason with himself that if you liked Yixing you would have ended your relationship already and you’re not the type to cheat or even think about cheating, so he has nothing to worry about, and honestly, he’d watch the focus with you, cheering on Yixing through the screen with you.


Lay would have no problem with it, he’s super supportive and would like to watch the focus of Chen along with you. He’d also just like to see the other style of his group member, so he would focus more on supporting Chen as well as going down memory lane with you about the fun times they had making Artificial Love, that he wouldn’t have time or really feel like he has any reason to wonder or worry about why you’re watching the focus of Chen.


He’d get jealous, loyalty and trust are very important to him, and therefore seeing you watch Kai’s focus would make him second guess the loyalty and trust he believed you guys had. Due to this he wouldn’t snap or yell at you, but calmly give you the cold shoulder while trying to calm his emotions down. Though this would only last for a short while and he would quickly get over his harsh feelings, realizing he had over reacted. Though, don’t let him catch you watching another focus of another member.


Kai would react in a harsh manner, not liking one bit that you’re watching Baekhyun’s focus. He knows deep down in him that he has nothing to worry about, you’re his girlfriend and Baekhyun is his friend and teammate, but he still can’t stop the worries and insecurities from bubbling up inside of him and unleashing on you. He’d need some time to chill if you want to try and talk rationally with him and avoid a fight.


The most reaction he would make is pouting. You’d need to just assure him that you only love him while giving him a lot of affection. Once you comfort him and restore his confidence he’d ask why you were watching Sehun’s focus, and going back to his old self, he’d joke about you going behind his back, he’d also ask if you watch his focus’ and if you fangirl over them, wanting to get you all flustered as pay back for making him upset and jealous. But really this wouldn’t be as big of a deal to Baekhyun as it is to the other members.


Sehun would be offended to be honest, the fact you’re watching his Hyung’s focus when you could be watching his jsut doesn’t make sense to him. He’d quickly shut off Suho’s focus and put his on, comparing his to Suho’s, pointing out sexy parts that – to him – are way more sexy than Suho could wish to be. He’s also not gunna let you live this down, he’ll bring it up as much as he can to make you feel guilty, you want a sip from his water bottle? Why don’t you ask Suho, he has the same water. Want a taste of his food? Ask Suho since you clearly like him better. When you get all flustered and frustrated with him he’s gunna find it hilarious and smirk at you, but still refuse to share anything with you for a while, partially cause he’s still salty about you watching Suho’s focus and mostly cause he finds your reactions and flustered responses hilarious and it’s good entertainment for him when he’s bored.


My Bullet Journal Set Up

So some of you have asked me about my bullet journal (I’m looking at you, @munirastudies (and some anons - hi anons!)). Here it is: my set-up!

I previously did a post on my bullet journal at the very beginning of this studyblr, which can be found here. It’s just changed so much since then that I decided I’d post a new one!

- 1 - I’ve got a dotted Leuchtturm1917 A5 notebook in a really dark blue - which fits because I’m Ravenclaw. I was actually planning on painting the house crest on the front cover, but I never got to do it… but I think I’ll do it soon haha.

- 2 - When you look at my bullet journal you’ll see that I have some bright tags there. They really help me find stuff quicker (but they aren’t sticky enough so they often get loose.. I should change that). You can see my tag list in picture

- 3 - and it’s at the very end of the notebook. For those of you who don’t know this system yet, it’s really simple! You just decide how you want to tag that page, for example “books” as I did in mine, and go to the back of your notebook to write it down there. Then you choose a colour and put a strip of washi tape (or I use post it flags) on that page in the back and also on the page you want to tag so that the colours are in one line and you can see them from the outside (god I’m bad at explaining this but I can’t find the page that explained it to me, sorry!).

- 4 - On the first three pages there’s an index, and I use the first page for years and months, then the second page (which you can see in the picture) I use for anything else.

- 5 - Then there’s my key. I have a colour coding system, but I use some colours twice (which is really bad, I know) because there just weren’t enough colours! I have one colour for each subject, then also for other parts of my life like work, family and friends, uni in general and health (which is anything really: when I eat, doctor’s appointments, when I clean my flat etc). There’s also a key for my expenses which I rarely use anymore, and one for how long it took me to do a task which I also don’t use anymore.

- 6 - In this picture, and also the one before, you can see my yearly overview (which I am still so proud of because I thinks it’s really pretty). I only write down really important stuff in there, and things I’m looking forward to.

- 7 - Now we come to the more important stuff in my bullet journal. In this picture you can see my monthly overview. Here I write down everything that happens that particular month, like when I have to work, exams, family and friends stuff, and birthdays etc. I also have space for goals that I want to achieve that month, and an expenses table. This really helps me because often times I would just go shopping for books and stuff and spend so much money (which you can see hasn’t really improved much {{I spent 70€ on books last month?!}}). Now I can see how much I spend and what I should do better next month (like, I should definitely buy less books {{I actually spent more money on books this month and it’s not even halfway through but shush}}). On the next page there’s an example of a weekly overview. This one looks pretty much the same every week (at least the layout). Here are some more examples:

There’s always space for my weekly goals, then a food table where I write down everything I eat (which should make me more aware of what I eat and change my habits of eating - but it kind of doesn’t), underneath that there’s my habit tracker (and you can see I’m not very good at that either), and then there’s some kind of time tracker…? I don’t know what it’s called, I just thought I needed to know how I spend my time each day, like if there’s a lot of pink I’ve been doing a lot for myself (reading, watching movies, listening to music), if there’s lots of yellow I did a lot with friends and family, then there’s days where I was very creative and a lot of the time is purple - or if there’s lots of green (history) and red (English) I did a lot for uni. I really like this one (and I think I came up with it myself, but if someone has already claimed credit I give it all to you haha).

- 8 - Let’s just ignore the fact that this was one of my most unproductive weeks of all time (like, do you see how often I migrated tasks here?!). Just like my weekly overviews, my daily overviews look pretty much the same every week - at least the basic layout. I get bored of a certain layout about halfway through the week, so I try to come up with a new one every week. See how I got an arrow based layout in the orange overview, and kind of tree/nature based in the green one? What I always include is how much water I drink. I try to drink 12 glasses of water, which in my case is about 2,5 litres. Then there’s the basic to do list thing that bullet journals have. I include my colour code here as well, it just makes it easier for me to see what kind of things I have to do each day. Some more examples:

- 9 - I also have pages in my bullet journal that I use for lists, uni stuff, recs, organisation and personal stuff. In this picture you can see my “books to read” list. On the first example picture of the daily pages you can also see my wish list (which only has “money” on it - figures) and a pro/contra list about the two options I have for my stay abroad. Here are some more examples:

My saving goals page (which isn’t really done yet) and my schedule for this semester(which doesn’t have the hours on it):

and a “movies to watch” list (some spelling mistakes included):

- 10 - This last picture is my current spread. I saw this on tumblr and wanted to try it, but my colour code kind of destroys it. Maybe I’ll try it again some time without my colour code… Here’s another picture of the weekly overview:

Wow. This got a little out of hand! I hope you enjoy this :)

Lena Luthor x Shapeshifter Reader//Word Count: 1,883

“You roar in your sleep.” Lena said teasingly and with a kiss on your cheek that morning.

“No.” You looked up from the paper you had been reading, startled by her comment. “I don’t.” You were sitting in the kitchen counter, sipping coffee and reading reports from the DEO.

“Yes, you do.” She chuckled.

You grunted and placed a hand on your face, trying to cover your embarrassment. “Did I wake you up? I’m sorry.” You mumbled and Lena just laughed.

“No, it’s fine. I just never heard you do that before.” She took a seat near of you and smirked. “You must have been really tired after last night.”

Thoughts on Classics Pt.1

I didn’t liveblog, but here are some thoughts:

-Deanne Soza is pretty and clean in an era where it pays more to be powerful

-Surprisingly nice DTY from Alonya. If I were Ashton I’d have diarrhea (and flashbacks to when a decent AAer was picked over me for the Olympics)

-Jade Carey’s DTT gets incredible distance. It looks easy for her. Amanar scoring is still…Amanar scoring, but it wasn’t BAD

-Paulson has decent choreo on floor…I could see her being a good dancer with some work. She’s cognizant of the music which is almost rare nowadays lmao

-Back to back wolf turns on floor with no choreo in between? And not actually connected just rapidfire one after the other? Sorry Shania Adams but I’ll never root for you. Not that the rest of the floor routine was compelling enough anyway lol. 

-Good bar routine from Riley all things considered

-Jordan Chiles is hitting the hard things on bars but missing casts to handstand. Not bad tho, I like the geinger.

-Great save from Marz Frazier on bars - missed a hand on her pak and recovered beautifully. In meets she’s not quite the superstar she is in training, but she belongs here at the elite level and she is proving it. I’m cautiously optimistic about her.

In general I do think taking away CV for indirect connections on beam is encouraging gymnasts to go for bigger and better direct connections, which I like. I’ve seen a lot of side aerials in combo to back somersaults and plenty of backward triple series, whether losos or 2 foot layouts.

-Confident beam work from Kalyany steele, with difficult and well-performed acro, but constantly bent back knee on everything dance-related. Wouldn’t be surprised to see her dismount with a triple soon, which would put her d score at 5.9.

-Shania adams could prob do a DTY, but I don’t forgive her from the floor wolf turns so meh.

-Deanne…if you can do an inbar shoot to HB, why can’t you do an inbar half into your Ezhova for an extra .2? You gotta get that bars d score into the 5s girlfriend. Love your toepoint and extension tho.

-Trinity Thomas…you’re doing amazing sweetie. Your bars have improved so much! A cleanly-executed 5.7 routine. Wow.

-My personal issues with her heinous feet aside, Alonya’s bar set is nice. Kind of Nastia-esque super pike down on the DLO, but if she keeps it up Ashton will be even more obselete. Sad!

post-finale thoughts on 2moons

And we’re done! This show has been endearing, and while it has its flaws, I did enjoy keeping up with it, and will miss the boys until next season! Meanwhile, here are my notes.

What I enjoyed:
- The actors are lovable, and immensely committed to the show.
- The chemistry is genuine, especially with godbas and kimcop
- The lightheartedness of a cheesy asian drama, with LGBT representation in its characters
- The dialogue in certain areas is so witty and adorable. Just the right amount of bite but not ill-intentioned
- 2moons has the ability to capture certain moments well. Especially with emotional shot-design and utilizing the chemistry the actors have with each other

What can be better:
- Like I’ve said, the layout of phayo’s storyline. They tell much more than they show, and it’s not the most enjoyable way to consume the story in TV form.
- The representation (or lack thereof) of female characters on the show. Women are not a threat to BL pairings. Take a page from SOTUS’ book. Women are not magnetically attracted to men and set out to separate them. Women can also be gay or bi, they can be friends, they can be advisors!
- The reliance on jealousy storylines/turning on each other. There are more intriguiging ways to show relationship drama than fear of someone stealing your SO. Please use them.
- The “rape” jokes? I’m pretty sure these were lost in translation in the eng subs, and that it would be more akin to “seduction” or something of the like, (which I understand is just another thing that’s prevalent in the culture of asian dramas) but it’s still kinda uncomfortable. Also with future behavior of the characters: please don’t romanticize ignoring a lack of consent!
- Lastly, the dom/sub dynamic that’s heavily hammered into phayo. I understand establishing the seme/uke thing is a marketing thing, and while I don’t support it, I can see that they felt the need to do so. What I wish is that 1) it wouldn’t be assigned as the majority of the relationship dynamic, and that it wouldn’t rely so heavily on the stereotypes of “what it means” to bottom or top, and 2) that it wouldn’t tie so heavily into the dom/sub dynamic. I get that selling pha as the dominant, caregiving top, and wayo as the submissive, bashful bottom is what does well, but I think the show would do better for its characters if it strayed from these stereotypes/ploys and focused on telling the story personally for the characters. (My headcanon: Pha may be tall and handsome, but he’s also a sweetheart and would do anything for wayo, would probably give him any control he wanted? Wayo might be shorter and cute, but he knows what he wants and he doesn’t just submit to teasing or bossing? They’re not limited to the roles they’re perceived in?) And anyway, topping or bottoming has nothing to do with physical or personality traits? It’s just whatever you do with whoever that you like?

TL;DR: 2moons is a fun show about young love. It isn’t without flaw, but with its wonderful cast and their love for each other, it might steal your heart, and it retains the potential to grow even better. It’s a cute, carefree show with LGBT characters and it’s worth tuning into if you’re ever bored. (And with the understanding that it is problematic in places, but strives to be light. For someone used to more mature LGBT storylines, this will likely require patience.) To Bas, Cop, God, Tee, Kim, and Tae: thanks for this season, and we’ll see you soon! Take care.

anonymous asked:

Instead of picking up baby!Len, the legends get teen!Len or 20-something!Len. I just want one of them to flirt with one of the Saras, you can choose what to do besides that. Thanks 💙💙💙

They grabbed him from Jitters’ roof in 1991.

“I wasn’t going to jump,” he’d snapped at them, arms crossed over a skinny torso. Please. If he was going to kill himself, he’d at least stage it as a murder so he could get his dad locked up.

He just liked it up there. It was quiet and he always stole enough coffee before he left to make sure that he didn’t need to sleep.

Which was fine, considering he’d been kidnapped by time travelers—one of which he thought was himself—and dropped off at Cult Kindergarten.

What kind of people was he associating with in the future? He’d have to talk to Mick about this. Older Mick. Not the teenage one that had just killed his family and had finally—finally­—fallen asleep with his head in Len’s lap. The touching wasn’t his favorite, but exceptions could be made. It was Mick and he’d kind of roofied him in an attempt to make him rest.

“You two are close,” the blonde girl said, Marty on her hip while Jax slept in the bassinette behind her. Sara, he thought her name was. Maybe. He hadn’t really been listening past understanding that Mick’s family was dead and, look, they apparently kidnapped babies too.

“He’s always wanted to have his face in my lap,” he drawled, the same as he used to do when there hadn’t been a good prison fight in a while.

“Are you two…”

“No.” They were still a package deal, though. Had been since they were fourteen. “That crush your threesome dreams?”

She didn’t even look shocked at the suggestion. “Heartbroken,” she said, sarcastic, and put Marty back in his bassinette.

“What year are you from, anyway?”


“Are cars flying yet?”

She stared at him. “We’ve been kidnapped by time travelers because some bad guys want to kill us and dropped in some weird boarding school. And you’re asking about flying cars.” The tone made it sound like she was questioning his sanity.

“Priorities,” he said and waved her off. “I already figured out the layout and I’ve seen better security at toy stores. They’ve got a spare ship in the back. Nine minutes and…” He tilted his head, thinking. “…sixteen seconds and I’m outta here.”

“Like you’d know how to fly one of those things.”

“I have seen Star Wars.”

“Those are space ships,” she countered. “Not the same.”

“Close enough.”

She rolled her eyes and dropped down to sit next to him. “Can I come?”

“I’ve already for a first mate,” he told her, “but I could use a wench.”

She punched him in the arm. He gritted his teeth as she knocked a healing bruise. “Those are pirates.”

“Time pirate?”

“Time wench?” she shot back, but the grin seemed more amused than mad.

He could work with that. “Wanna break out of here?”

They made it out of there in nine minutes, sixteen seconds. On the dot. And that included the time it took to wake Mick and tell him they were making a prison break.

Sometimes, he impressed himself.

It also impressed Sara if the look she gave him said anything. Or the kiss.

Hi there! Just wanted to pop by and say thank you for having such a glorious blog! I enjoy reading all your skating meta and I've learnt quite a lot. So, I do have a question for you...if Yuuri's Eros programme had 'the highest technical difficulty in history', how come he didn't break a record with it? I must admit this question popped into my head randomly the other day and you were the first person I thought of who could possibly explain!! Thank you so much for being awesome! 💕

Aww~ (*´ ˘ `*) Thank you for the nice compliments!  ° • (◍ > ♡ < ◍) ノ✧*。

I want to clarify something about the original Japanese dialogue first…

Morooka commentates at CoC that Yuuri is about to complete the “highest technical difficulty program.” He uses the word “kakkou” (past) here rather than “rekishi” (history) like when he talks about Phichit making history in ep7.  
Now, this “kakkou” could mean “the past in general,” OR it could refer to this SP being “the most-difficult-to-date program” for Yuuri personally

Chris’ preceding comment on Yuuri being completely different from previous years (“kyounen made” = through last year/the prior year being the last), and Morooka’s later comments on “a new Yuuri being born” as well as using “kakkou” again in “katsuki yuuri ni totte kakkou saikou level deshou” (lit. “past highest level” – better translated as “the best he’s ever been” or “a higher level than in the past”), make me think that the “highest technical difficulty of any past program” refers to Yuuri’s past programs specifically.
But well, Japanese sports TV is dramatic, so it might be “HIGHEST DIFFICULTY IN HISTORY!”*

Regardless of time frame or skaters, I think what he’s expressing here is that Yuuri’s program is of the utmost difficulty because of the layout – he backloads his jumps – NOT the point value itself. That would be a different term like  基礎点 kisoten (BV), or  技術点 gijutsuten/ 技術要素点 gijutsuyousoten (TES). And besides, J.J. just skated in Skate Canada, likely had a higher BV, and Morooka would be aware of this.


In regards to breaking records, what you’re asking instead is technical difficulty in terms of points – this would be the Base Value (BV) of a program where you calculate the raw elements without the extra GOE or the PCS. There are three points here to cover:

  1. At the GPF, Chris with his BV of 52.33 is actually slightly higher than Yuuri’s 52.26 BV. Yuuri’s previous planned jumps made his BV 50.06 points, and Chris’ former BV was 46.61, both of which are lower than J.J.’s 51.16 BV. Basically, J.J. had the highest BV until Chris changed his program.
  2. Just because a BV is higher doesn’t mean you’ll break a world record (WR).  Some years you simply don’t see a world record broken. This has to do with fulfilling a program’s potential score. 
    1. For example, Yuzuru’s SP last season (2016-17) “Let’s Go Crazy” had a higher BV than his world-record-breaking SP from the year before (2015-16) “Chopin Ballade No. 1 in G Minor.” Even so, he didn’t manage to break his own WR. This is because, while he had a harder program and landed his jumps, he didn’t fulfill the total amount of points the program could potentially earn (BV+GOE+PCS). His GOE and PCS weren’t enough to beat his near-perfect skate from the season prior. (More on this below.)
    2. Along this vein, Nathan Chen had the highest BV in the field last season with 53.15 points, but he earned lower GOEs for his jumps and his PCS isn’t as high yet. Thus, no broken record even when he skated cleanly at 4CC.
  3. You don’t need the highest BV to break a record - just a high enough potential total score to put you above the last record, and then fulfilling it. This is basically what Victor was saying in the onsen in ep4.
    1. Looking at Yuzuru again, this season at Autumn Classic International 2017 he broke the former WR – which he set almost two years ago in Dec 2015 – with a program that had nearly identical elements to the old record-breaking program. 
    2. His record-breaking Short Program BV in 2015-16 was 47.45, in 2016-17 his SP BV was 49.75, and the watered down version of his 2017-18 SP has a BV of 49.51. You can see that it’s a slightly lower BV than “Let’s Go Crazy” last year, and much lower than Nathan’s, yet he broke the record because he nearly maxed out the GOE and PCS.

Which leads to the assumption that Victor’s past program was never quite performed to perfection – much like we see from Chris this season. Furthermore, the SPs Victor choreographed for Yurio and Yuuri this season have high enough potential total scores to break that old record - which we see fulfilled at the GPF.
(Even if it ignores this world’s judging rules and goes by narrative impact instead.)

You know me - all my responses end up like mini essays. I’ve accepted it. I hope this answered everything!

*To any Japanese speakers who wish to discuss/comment on the subs vs. original dialogue in episode 6 (12:21-12:48), feel free to do so. I’d like to see other people’s take on this.


i havent been drawing much lately so i figured id use my blog like an actual blog to get something new on here, i dont think i’ll say anything profound but im all about being candid so if youre interested in that, cool.

around a year ago i made a big effort to make a multi chapter webcomic that i was hoping would get me noticed to snag some art job in some cartoon studio, but my intentions were so awful that i just sorta fell apart and was feeling burnt out every day. i bought lots of storyboarding books and studied tips on writing and looked for some kind of education to tell me how to do a good job, but then it wasnt about making a comic anymore. i had basically rewritten my story about 3 times and lost all of the fun i had when i thought it up, and i just fizzled out on it and i dont think i’ll be working on it again any time soon (i then went for a shorter idea that was only about being fun for me, and thats where The Red Muscle came from, one of the few projects ive ever finished).

during this time i would see the artists i look up to and how their circle of connections and friends gets tighter and tighter and i would get bothered so much with how badly i wanted to be in that circle yet never felt like i was a part of it, and that thought process poisoned everything i tried to make for months. ive been spending my time these days just having fun thinking up ideas and not worrying about making everything a finished piece i can shove in some art director’s face. i dont spend nearly as much time drawing as i did in the past, but i’m in a much better emotional space currently. i still think working at a cartoon studio would be a dream come true, but i dont let the idea of me not working there in the next 5-10 years cripple me anymore.

i think i felt like posting these unfinished pages and thumbnails just to help myself accept that not every idea has to be finished, or even be good. sometimes you can work on something and if you feel like what you have isnt doing anything for you, its ok to stop and do something else that feels better for you. i also thought some of these thumbs were really good! i tried really hard to make nice pages with cool camera angles and and page layouts, i practiced my perspective a lot and thought these had some of my biggest artistic growth in a long time.

if you bothered to read my ramblings all the way down to here, i should say thank you and im sorry! haha

Son of a Patriotic Biscuit (Part 2)

Pairing: Steve Rogers x Reader

Word Count: 1743

Warnings: None

A/N: I forgot to mention in part 1 that this occurs before the events of The Winter Soldier (So Steve still thinks Bucky died falling off the train). Steve’s not very present in this part, but that all gets going in the next one so you don’t have long to wait for it! Thank you guys for the reception of the last part! As always, feedback is appreciated and the tag list is OPEN. Gif is not mine

Part 1 is HERE

Your name: submit What is this?

The next morning, I made quite the actress, if I do say so myself. I played the part of still being incredibly ticked off at being left behind though already missing them at the same time. Honestly, it wasn’t all that hard - I was still angry that Steve hadn’t let me go. The difficult part was pretending that I hadn’t stayed up all night planning my own mission, but I managed. Concealer is definitely a girl’s best friend.

Once they were out the door, promising to keep in touch, I made my way back to the training room, fully intending to ensure that I would be at the top of my game when I showed up and saved their rears. To that effect, I picked up my longbow and moved to the targets.

“J.A.R.V.I.S.? Start my playlist, would you?”

“Of course.”

Almost immediately, I heard the opening strains of one of my favorite songs, grinning as I took my mark.

A week and a half later found me in California, staying in one of my old hideouts in a motel. The rest of the team was in town, and I was being careful to stay out of their way. I’d already been there for a few days, mostly keeping tabs on everyone, but doing a bit of my own digging into my old captors. Apparently they’d been doing more experimenting, though that wasn’t what had brought them onto the Avenger Radar. The real reason was that they had teamed up with HYDRA, which was a tiny bit of a no-go as far as SHIELD was concerned.

For a moment, I remembered the small stab of betrayal when I had seen that only now was the team being sent after these people. You’re the one who didn’t talk about your past, I reminded myself as my jaw clenched, They would’ve demolished the place if you’d told them. But noooo, you like to suffer in silence and keep your past to yourself. You’ve no right to complain if you stayed so close-mouthed about it. The crackle of the comms system coming in over my laptop dragged me out of the black spiral I was getting into.

“He’s on the move, do I follow?” Nat’s voice was the first one I heard, followed quickly by none other than Captain Spangles himself telling her to go ahead. Ever one to be prepared, I changed quickly into my suit. I wasn’t expecting anything to happen for a few days yet, but my philosophy was to expect the worst in situations like this - that way, you’re either right or pleasantly surprised. While I was strapping the quiver to my back, various knives and firearms tucked into hidden pockets or sheaths and boots, the assassin was back on the comms.

“The target is leaving town in a Jeep, headed east, but I’ve lost eyes on him.”

“I’ve got eyes on him. Let’s see where he’s going.” Stark’s voice crackled over the earpiece I was putting in. I’d made it myself and patched it into their frequency, but it was a receiver only. If I got into trouble, I’d be on my own trying to get out of it. For the next few minutes, there was tense silence over the comms, broken only by occasional updates on the path the scientist was taking. In that time, I ran the tracer I’d implanted and figured out where they were.

The path they were taking seemed vaguely familiar, but I couldn’t quite put my finger on why. The thought put me on edge so much that I had to force my muscles to unclench. Something about that direction was raising the hairs on the back of my neck, and I hated not knowing the reason.

“He’s pulling up to some warehouse. It looks like the one he was telling HYDRA to meet him at.”

“Already? I thought they weren’t due for this for another couple of days…” I could hear the genuine surprise in Steve’s voice despite the crackling reception. “Alright, we’re on our way out there. Don’t engage until we get there.”

“Don’t you dare go getting yourself killed you fricken fracken, mother truckin’, son of a biscuit eating little pretty boy with an American flag obsession,” I muttered in exasperation or desperation, I wasn’t sure which, while moving around the motel room as I gathered my stuff. Taking a last look around, I froze in my tracks, feeling like the floor dropped out from under me as I realized just what warehouse they were talking about.

I’d heard the scientists talk about it while I’d been there, but had never really concerned myself with it. Now that I thought about it, I figured out why the hairs were raising - the warehouse was their standard trap as well as their prison. And the team - my friends, no, family - were walking right into it. I mean, they used the warehouse to store all of the experiments’ files, but those were almost impossible to find if you didn’t already know exactly what you were looking for and where it was. The things I’d heard about the people caught turned my stomach unpleasantly. The idea of the scientists doing what they had done to me to anyone else was unthinkable. I had to stop it, no matter what happened to me. With that decision, I opened the motel window, leaping out and unfurling my wings.

It was dark enough outside that I made it safely to a high enough altitude to remain unseen but low enough to stay off the radar. With nearly soundless flaps of my wings, I flew as quickly as I could to where the team was headed, hoping against all hope that I would get there before them. The winds were against me, and I heard over my earpiece the team forming a plan and moving out while I was still a minute’s flight away. Cursing my luck, I pushed myself as hard as I dared, knowing I would need some strength and substantial grit to get them out of this.

Silently, I landed in the woods near the warehouse that I had been housed in a long time ago. Once on the ground, I released a breath I didn’t realize I’d been holding. Clint was still in the stand of trees, near the edge where the forest gave way to the open ground surrounding the warehouse.

“Clint! I’m so glad I caught you.” I jogged toward him, whisper shouting in an attempt to keep a low profile.

“Y/N? What are you doing here?” His eyebrows furrowed when he saw me coming.

“Doesn’t matter at the moment. You guys are walking right into a trap.”

“How do you know?”

“This is… where I was created.” I didn’t have time to be embarrassed about my origins, but that didn’t stop my throat from getting caught on the words. “I’ve heard them talk about what else they did before I escaped. What are you guys here for?”

“There’s a file Fury wants us to get ahold of, specifically pertaining to their experiments backed by HYDRA. After that, he wants the place burnt to the ground.” To his credit, the bowman didn’t even address the fact that my deep, dark secret was now revealed. I really didn’t want pity, especially not now. “Alright, what are we going to do about the trap? Comms went dead a few seconds before you got here.”

“They perpetually have signal jammers running, so nothing gets out of that building unless they want it to,” I acknowledged. “Where did everyone go in there?”

“The plan was for Tin Man to run perimeter inside the building, I’m on duty for keeping our escape open.” His hand ran through his short hair a little anxiously. “The Stars and Stripes was going in with the Spider - they were supposed to stick together, but I have no idea if they still are. They only went in a minute ago, and I haven’t heard anything so it can’t have gone too wrong yet.” I grimaced, not wanting to undermine the hope, but knowing that my former captors were quite good at this. If they had HYDRA working with them I didn’t want to know what new tricks they had up their sleeves.

“Alright, you stay out here - if we lose our way out of here then we’ll all be better off dead. Plus, the more of us that go in, the less likely it is that I can get us all out. I’ll get everyone out that I can, though. I still remember the building’s layout so I’ve got the best bet of making it back.” I took control, knowing that my experience here gave me an edge in making a plan. Fortunately, Clint didn’t question it, just nodded.

“Be careful in there, alright? Capsicle would have my head if he found out I let you do this.” The man ruffled my hair playfully, but I could hear the real worry behind the joking tone.

“I’ll be fine. I’ve escaped these ninnys before, you know,” I reassured while mimicking his joking tone. With a final, tight smile, I was off, ghosting across the open ground to the access hatch I’d slipped through more than a decade ago. My bow was in hand, an arrow already nocked on the string. Slowly but surely I made my way to the secret entrance. For a long moment, I listened down the hatch, not wanting to be caught unawares before I could drop down the ladder.

Satisfied that the way was clear, I made my way downwards, but apparently someone had been hiding there because gunshots suddenly rang out. With no time, I let go of the ladder, spreading my wings just as much as I needed to hit the ground at a force that wouldn’t break my knees. Instantly, I rolled to the side for cover, wincing as my wing hit the ground.

Breathing deeply, I sent a knife whirling towards my attacker. The grunt and thud told me that I’d hit my target, so I retrieved the weapon before steeling myself to look at my wing. As I suspected, a bullet had torn through it, right in a spot that would prevent me from flying without immense pain. Grimacing, I tucked my wings close to my back before moving out into the hallway.

Well, this ought to be fun.

Why Do I Love/Like This Person? A Tarot Spread Layout Idea

So…I figure Ill post here to get some feedback.

I am trying to come up with a tarot spread due to relationship difficulties. My spread idea is why do I love/like this person? So it can go for friendships too. The reason for this is because I do not one focusing on why the relationship should continue or not but to understand the relationship better…of what keeps you and maybe what repels you.

So far the ideas is bases on this…

1st card - This is who they are.
2nd - The highest reason why you like them.
3rd & 4th - two other reasons why you like them.
5th - I can’t decide if this should be the least reason or representing the foundation for said relationship like…a rock…or the reason this relationship would be difficult.

Or maybe doing like 3 cards for positive reasons and 3 for negative?

The other possibility is the reverse the aforementioned spread to get what you least liked about the person and or relationship.
