Just bros havin’ hot pot

Phichit and Yuuri are very clearly good friends. Friends who have history and who facetime. Friends who haven’t seen each other in a long time. 

Which makes the scene where they’re all having hot pot so much more in-your-face Viktuuri. 

Viktor and Yuuri are just 2 bros eatin’ n chillin’ at a 4 seat table. Viktor’s taken off his grey jacket which is folded over the free seat beside him. Got a full bottle of alcohol in front of him. He’s comfortable, relaxed. The boys are seated against the wall with the other two chairs keeping them and the rest of the restaurant apart. It’s more private and intimate that way, so that they can chill in peace. 

Why did Yuuri not think to message his other good bro Phichit and invite him to join? Well, it’s the night before a competition and Yuuri’s already feeling nervous, it’s fine that he just wants to keep things cool with Viktor for now.

But Phichit shows up all the same, so might as well all sit together and have a nice meal, right? Right.

And oh look-y here, there are two free seats right by Phichit, it’s going to be real easy to just sit down. But wait, Viktor’s jacket is over one of these seats. That’s a social no-no, a sign that says ‘seat-sorta-taken-unless-you’re-pregnant-or-injured’. No biggie though, the other chair is free and yey, it’s right by his buddy Yuuri!

Hang on a minute. 

When Celestino “Ciao ciao” Cialdini shows up to join the party, Phichit is seated where you’d have expected but Yuuri has moved?

That’s right, Yuuri changed seats.

Instead of just staying put, and having his pal Phichit sit down next to him with literally zero fuss, Yuuri thought ‘hey no, I’m gona go sit next to Viktor now that I have the excuse to since there are more than 2 people here’. 

And wait, what’s this? 

Viktor has taken off his black shirt at this point, and it’s folded over Yuuri’s (occupied) seat beside him. But then, what happened to Viktor’s grey jacket that was there before?

So basically, when Phichit arrived, Yuuri: 

  • got up, 
  • shuffled over the empty seat beside him,
  • moved around the table,
  • removed Victor’s jacket from the chair,
  • and then sat down.

Socially, this seems like a lot of obstacles to go through just to sit next to Viktor. But hey, it’s just sitting next to Viktor. It’s not like anything special happened from Yuuri being next to him. I mean, who knew Viktor was gona get hammered? The bottle of alcohol on the table that Yuuri had no intentions of drinking before a competition certainly wasn’t a sign of that. Not like Yuuri had any idea how Viktor behaved drunk, he’s obviously never drunk anything back in Japan…

And Yuuri was surprised by the pic Phichit uploaded? How could the boy not when Yuuri was being so obvious? Clinging and naked he may have been, but Viktor had the ‘drunk’ card in his arsenal of excuses for this. Viktor wasn’t the one who moved round the table in a clear effort to sit next to you. That was all you, Yuuri, and Phichit couldn’t ignore that when you were being so very obvious about it. He couldn’t! He your bro.

And bro got your back. Now you’ve got a picture of yourself with a naked Viktor Nikiforov. There’s something you’re gona wana frame and put by your nightstand. You’re welcome.

Don't just eat her out. Kiss her pussy lips, suck her clit, slurp her juices up, finger fuck her till she drip and make her body shiver while you make that pussy quiver. And when she screams, lick her all over while she creams

Dean almost spits out the sweet liquid the second it hits his tongue.

“The hell is that, Cas?”

Cas looks into his own cup like he’s suddenly doubting it. “You said you wanted something to drink…”

“I meant alcohol. Or coffee. That ain’t coffee.”

“It’s hot chocolate,” Cas informs him. “It’s cold out here, and I thought it might be a nice change.”

Cas looks so hopeful that Dean doesn’t have the heart to tell him he can’t stand sugared coffee, let alone a drink like this. He just sighs and scoots over on the park bench to make room.

Cas sits down, takes a hesitant sip from his own styrofoam cup, then grins. “I like it,” he declares.

An easy silence falls over them, and they listen to the rustle of trees and the dripping of water droplets from an earlier rain shower. The leaves are vibrant here in this town, reds and oranges that burn against the gray sky.

Dean feels no need to say it out loud, but he likes autumn. He takes a deep breath, lets the cold air burn his lungs before he takes another sip. It’s still too sweet for a drink, but the warmth is nice. And a little chocolate never hurt anyone.

They should do something. Maybe find a case near this town, or get on the road until one shows up. But Dean’s ass is apparently glued to this bench. They watch leaves fall, smile at some dogs that seem to be walking their owners, and just breathe. It’s nice to just sit there.

Eventually, Dean realizes that his cup is empty. He looks over at Cas, whose blue eyes are somehow shining even though the clouds are blocking any sunlight that might reflect in them. Dean suddenly has a warmth under his skin that makes him feel a little high. Goofy happy, even.

Maybe hot chocolate isn’t so bad.

Yeah. It’s definitely the hot chocolate that’s warming him up.

Keeping cool can be tricky when you’re coated in thick insulating feathers, help your feathered friends cool down with some of these activities!

  • Allow access to a shallow dish of cold water (most heat escapes from their feet and beak, getting their feathers wet can trap heat let them walk around in cool water to help cool down)
  • Put perches or cushions in the freezer to cool them
  • Feed them some homemade sugar-free fruit popsicles 
  • Put ice cubs in water bowls, frequently check if they’re thirsty by placing them on to the dish
  • Tie an ice pack to the wall of the cage, place something chewable between the bars and the ice pack so the bird can’t chew the ice pack.  The ice pack will cool the bars and air around them. 
  • Offer frozen berries
  • Provide water-rich foods such as fruits or lettuces to ensure they’re getting enough fluids
  • Make cold fruit juices (no added sugars)
  • Supply daily bathing opportunities
  • Have a fan blowing out the mesh-covered window to draw hot air out, keep inside doors open to allow for more air circulation
  • Close the blinds if there’s direct sunlight

Also read up on the signs of heat stroke and immediate care response! Take care and keep cool!

Attention Toronto Sluts & Scammers

The Cleveland Cavaliers are staying at ‘The Shangri-la’ in Toronto.

They are out and about, speaking to guests, waving, taking pictures and even the coaches are chatty.

For this hot information I’ve just handed you. All I ask for is a cameo on “Basketball Wives Toronto” when you make it.
