i actually like them both equally

I am SO happy

So about 4 days ago my brother was working in the yard and he was getting rid of this big old plastic pot we had that was already falling apart. To fit it in the garbage bag he had to smash it into smaller pieces with a shovel.

But when he dumped out the dirt….

…eggs. Ten little eggs.


My mom brought them in to show me. Not knowing what they were or if they were dangerous or not, she asked me if I wanted to take one and open it up outside to make sure it wasn’t full of baby bugs or something. I told her that they were definitely reptile eggs but she was still giving them the ‘I-still-don’t-trust-that-they-aren’t-bugs’ look.

I knew there was no way it was full of bugs and I wouldn’t be able to get it off my mind if we cut one out and killed it. But then I remembered candling.

If you don’t know what candling is, it’s when you put a flashlight under an egg to check if it’s fertile or not.

So I told her to hold on and I ran to get a flashlight.

Lo and behold they were not bugs.

It was our first time ever candling anything so we weren’t exactly sure what to look for. The only videos I had ever seen for candling an egg was a video talking about how some geckos lay eggs without a mate but there is a rare chance they could be fertile anyway; the eggs in the video were always empty though. So we checked all the eggs and they were all alive and responsive. I managed to convince my family that I was 99% sure they were lizards of some kind.

Since we kind of accidentally destroyed their nest and a storm was coming we set out to give them somewhere safe to hatch.

 We got a pot and filled it with damp dirt like the one we found them in but smaller. After candling each egg, we made a divot in the dirt and placed each egg half in and half off, careful not to turn them too much and damage them.

My mom did some research and found that the eggs needed to be kept somewhere with good humidity so we got a plastic book crate, drilled some holes in it, and filled the bottom with wet paper towels.

The mystery eggs were put in the garage where it was just as hot as outside but safe from the huge thunderstorm.

Day 2 of eggs and nothing happened. We didn’t think anything would happen just yet but we were all a little worried that we were doing the wrong thing. It was my day to go finish up cleaning up the dirt and shards from the broken pot in the yard when I found another egg.

I picked it up and it wasn’t as firm as the others. In fact it was leaking. I called my mom and candled the little guy. He was just as alive as the others were. There wasn’t much room in the new incubator with the other eggs so we got a tiny beta fish tank we haven’t used in years and fixed it up for the egg. We put it in the garage next to the others.

Now this egg had me worried. He had been out in the storm with a damaged egg. I would go out and check on him throughout the day. Not a thing happened and I was starting to worry that he didn’t make it.

Day 3 of eggs was interesting. I went out to check again on little egg 11 with my mom. She asked how the others were doing and wanted to see. It was fogged up on the inside so I shone a light through and saw it. A head! A little baby lizard head poking out of the egg! 

The incubator was taken inside and everyone was gathered around the table. We would all switch from watching the eggs, to someone doing research, to checking the eggs, to setting up the empty tank we had, to checking the eggs again.

All together 4 little lizards were hatching. They’d kick for a bit in their eggs but then fall asleep because it was so tiring. 

After a while my mom got concerned about one that hadn’t opened its eyes in ages. It wasn’t moving. I picked up the egg and put it in my hand. I rubbed the shell and gently gave it little tugs. Then out the baby came!

This little guy came out healthy and fast. After a brief look-around he ran out of my hand and back into the pot. Then over the edge of the pot to explore the hides we fit in. 

After 4 of the babies fully hatched and we figured out what we were going to do, we put the incubators in the spare tank we had so we could keep an eye on them. At that point it was a little past 1:00am and a 5th egg started to hatch.

Day 4 of eggs and lizards we went to the local pet store to get something that these super small babies could eat. Luckily, Petco carries super small crickets and meal worms. We loaded up on reptile supplies: bus, vitamin dust, hides, heat lamps, you name it we probably bought it.

Upon getting home my mother and I readied the tank.

At that point all but two eggs had hatched. One we thought wasn’t going to make it because it didn’t react when I candled it, and the other was number 11 who was found a day late and broken. We decided to move the two into one incubator instead of two while we moved 9 of the lizards into their temporary home.

When we look for them they were hiding in the incubator all curled up together under a plant we had put in. They actually seem to do that everywhere they decide to hide which is kind of surprising to me. I thought they were going to all be really territorial with each other. But they seem to like each other more than I thought they would.

After a few hours, number 11 hatched and he was just as healthy and fast as the others despite being through the storm earlier. Not too long after that, the last egg hatched. He was much smaller than the others but equally as fast. We added them both to the tank with the others and they hid as quick as a ninja.

Day 5 of lizards was mostly setting up heat lamps and lights and worrying if they were okay. They stayed hidden under rocks and brush. We never saw them eat so we went back to researching.

Day 6 of lizards and they are alive and well! They’ve taken a liking to the new heat lamp and have been scuttling around there all day. I even saw one eat a cricket! 

Even the smallest of the bunch was enjoying himself in the warmth :)

I will continue to take care of them until it comes time to release them back to their natural habitat. I’ll keep you all updated. It’s such a strange and wonderful learning experience :) 

  • neil is really confused about the whole “i love you” thing. it feels like a reference he just doesn’t get, a joke no one ever bothered to explain. he doesn’t get why it’s such a big deal, why it holds such importance, why people will fight and make up over whether or not someone did or didn’t say it back. 
  • dan asks him about it, once, about him and andrew. his answer leaves a sad, disappointed look on her face, which in turn leaves a sour taste in his mouth. 
  • i’m sorry, her eyes seem to say, full of unwarranted sympathy. i’m sorry you’ve never felt the certainty and peace that comes with hearing those words 
  • and it… bothers neil. it takes him a while to figure out why, exactly, but in the end it’s because there have been far more important words exchanged between him and andrew. words like stay, like percent, like yes or no?, like i won’t let you let me be. words that actually mean something to the both of them, and he doesn’t like that people think andrew makes him feel anything less than equally important words like belonging, and accepted, and safety, and home, just because the whole wide world thinks that eight letters and three syllables would ever be enough to encompass all of that)

Oh my god, so I just had the most bizarre yet cute mini-dream about a king who went on a matchmaking show because he needed a consort to help him get rid of a dragon in his kingdom, and he was really super awkward and ended up with this quiet shy guy. And at the end of the show when they were discussing compatibility and the consort gets asked about work priorities, he says, “Well, there’s no such thing as too late a night!”

And the king sits bolt upright, delighted, and says, “That’s what I need - a KNIGHT! Oh, you’re wonderful!” And they’re all blushy and everything and the credits come up, and then there’s this sort of freeze frame that turns into an x-ray of the two of them, revealing that they are both, in fact, sixteen geese in a mansuit. Like they are literally both flocks of birds pretending to be people, but every bird is equally happy with this arrangement?

And then I woke up, and now I’m just like. Trying to side-eye my brain, because WHAT.

i get that youre mad at the white kpop group and i am too but what's the difference between them and a kpop group with non-korean asians in it? like in got7 for example a majority of the members arent korean but nobody has a problem with it? i guess what i mean is that white americans and chinese people for example are both equally not korean and each have their own unique cultures, so why do we act like one is offensive but the other isnt? doesnt that end up painting all asians with one brush?

no no no nooo okay the thing with got7 and other such groups is that one, they’re run by a korean agency who not only trains them for years in dancing and singing but also in the korean language and culture. Also, korean agencies give their groups actual korean lyrics that are of substance whereas exp edition are PURELY white americans from NY who have no actual experience in any asian culture let alone the korean language. Also, groups like got7 and blackpink always have at least two full korean members who can properly educate their teammates whereas exp is again purely american/non-asian, from NY where most likely the most “korean” thing they have done is eat kbbq

personally, I see exp as a group that mocks the efforts of actual kpop groups.

Joseph absolutely hated when he couldn't hold his children when they were first born. He'd hold them as often as they could. When Chris was born, Joseph cried and when Mary slept that night, he'd whisper promises that he'd whisper to each of his kids the night they were born. He whispered promises of always loving them no matter who they grew up to be (I sent this to the wrong person first and want to d i e)

Oh man, that’s so cute, I love it. I have 0 experience with babies, but I do remember my dad telling me how much of a total bitch it was to cut the cords off of each of us shortly after we were born only to have us handed off to our mom directly after.

I can imagine him having a very “I JUST GOT TO TOUCH MY BABY AND NOW YOU’VE TAKEN HIM AWAY also brb gonna puke because that had no right to be so SINEWY-” reaction, and it really didn’t change each time they had kids. I also like to imagine that Christie and Christian were surprise twins?? Like maybe not because of the technology today, but like…

I can picture Joseph being the most doting husband besides Mary in the delivery room. She’s screaming, he’s freaking the fuck out, he’s lost feeling in his hand like thirty minutes ago but he’s too focused on trying to calm Mary down (and, no, it is NOT WORKING, Mary’s shouted so many expletives by this point Joseph’s considered giving up on the whole ‘swears are a sin’ thing)…An then Christie is born. A son first, and now a daughter?? He’s thrilled, but something’s different. Mary hasn’t calmed down, and the doctors rushed Christie away instead of handing it to Mary like last time.

Mary starts screaming again and Joseph just loses his shit, okay, like oh my God, is she dying?? Was Christie (or, ‘unnamed baby girl’) dying?? And then the doctor draws back with another baby in his arms. Mary’s crying but desperately asking to hold her babies at this point, just happy the ordeal is over, and Joseph’s just stunned, like, two babies?? Two more lovely children?? Chris was already his life and now he has TWO MORE BABIES?? HE SCREAMS??

And then Mary has to start telling her husband to calm down okay because now the drugs are kicking back in and the babies are fine and wow he really just needs to shut up okay, like, calm down, it’s okay, breath, just breath. She still makes fun of him to this day for freaking out, and Joseph completely agrees that he totally lost his cool and had no right to start sobbing like that. Especially since he wasn’t the one who just delivered two babies.

Every time new kids entered the house he basically spent every hour he could with them. It got to the point that Mary had to force him to leave because dammit her boobs are sore and her head hurts and he just needs to fucking?? Leave?? Oh my God. She was more than willing to let him put the babies to sleep every night, though, and go to bed early herself. She deserved the rest, and he loved getting to do it.

Well, most nights, at least. Some nights were full of equal crying from both father and children because they just…Wouldn’t…Go to sleep…And it’s two am and he has to work in the morning and he wishes he could say he regrets asking to do this…

But he doesn’t. Because he loves his kids too much, and he always will. He promised.

Do you have any evak + girl squad headcanons?<3

Okay let me just say I live for evak and the girl squad. Like so so so much. The birthday one shot I did for Even’s birthday was basically just a massive girl squad and Isak hanging out fest. I am obsessed haha

  • So just like the boy squad the girl squad and evak work all for so many different reasons depending on the girl. So Even and Noora find themselves in serious discussions about women’s rights and human rights and equality all together. Even is actually one of the few people that make Noora rethink things she was so sure were the only way to think about them. They listen to each others perspectives and then broaden the way they originally think about something, and it is both beautiful and annoying because Isak is just like ooohhhh eeem geee stop. And then omg Chris cracks up Even so much. her jokes and omg omg omg 
  • Okay so Chris does not let Even forget that she had this ‘connection’ with Isak. She is all “So Even, you know I am really glad that Isak found you because, I mean we kinda had a thing” and Even raises his eyebrows and is like “really?” she nods “Oh yeah, gawd our energy, the sexual tension, it was electrifying!” then she lowers her head in pity “poor Isak tho, He tried to make me jealous once which didn’t work, and then by the time he would have been ready to profess his love for me I had already found my Kasper. I can tell it really cut him up.” Even is just like “wow, I had no idea” and she is all “yeah it hurt so much that no other girl could compare. But I mean I’m just glad he finally got over me,” And Even laughs and says “same Chris, same.” 
  • And then ahhh Eva and Isak are finally reunited. They had such a precious friendship before the snake stuff went down and now they are baaack. They like have so many silly inside jokes and do such fun and silly stuff together that just makes everyone smile and go “ahhh you two” Like Isak and Eva’s super cute and adorable shenanigans truly come out together and Even and Vilde just sit there all heart eyed as they watch Isak and Eva compete to see who can fit the most marshmallows in their mouths. (this of course leads to some inappropriate jokes from the girls, especially Chris who says something along the lines of “this is really a competition to see who is better at fitting something else in their mouths” Even laughs of course and gives her a dick joke of his own. they are adorable) 
  • Oh and Eva showers Even in stories of baby Isak. of all the goofy stuff he did in middle school, and how his obsession with trying to rap began. And she leans forward and whispers “I’m pretty sure he actually thinks he’s really good so just go with it so we can get more footage of him being a dork” And Even is like “That won’t be a problem” and shows her the million videos he has secretly taken of Isak doing silly things and it is amazing and Eva is giggling and telling him a story for every video he shares with her. And it is like so perfect. <3 
  • Ahhh Sana my angel Sana gets along so well with our boys. Her and Isak are so so close (as we know) and they just mock each other and banter in such a fond way. It is adorable. and then Sana pays out Isak to Even which he loooooves but then Just like Sana and Isak, Even and Sana talk about so much issues that are happening in society and religion and cultural beliefs and basically their own personal values that truly make them understand each other and feel less alone. It’s beautiful. Sana clearly has a soft spot for both these boys which the girls tease her about immensely. Because this one time Even corrected her and the whole table just gasped and went into a dead silence, waiting for Sana to put him in his place buuuut instead she was like “Oh yes. Thank you. So anyway…” and they are just like OMG and now they laugh and go “Sana is a softie!” and Sana just glares and is like “I can make you all disappear.” 
  • And then Vilde omg I love Vilde + evak. I actually want to write a real drabble about this one day (I will when I finish the prompts and get a chapter out for each fic ahhh) so anyway this one is so funny because Isak and Even absolutely adore and love Vilde buuuut in completely different ways. So to Isak, Vilde is that super annoying little sister who is just like always there asking him things and telling him things and interrupting kissy time with his boyfriend and he is just like “oh my gawd Vilde I don’t care what dress you are wearing! Just cos I am dating a boy doesn’t mean I know fashion. gawd” And then she lectures him on his manners and he tells her to look in a mirror and she says I was gonna say the same to you but then I thought you would probably break it and they just totally bicker like siblings and it’s adorable. But then Even, oh Even he finds Vilde so endearing and sweet and he just wants to protect her and keep her happy and safe from the world. So this makes things awkward cos he is always like “Vilde join us to the movies tonight!” when she is complaining about having no plans and Isak is just like “ummm baby what the actual hell” because it always turns into Vilde rambling and Even listening politely while Isak is rolling his eyes and mumbling under his breath. He really does love her tho. Like if anyone actually hurt Vilde he would be the first to be like “I will defeat you with my muscles” and Even would be all “Isak you are the softest boy I know” and Isak is all “I am the master at fighting” and Even is just like “Okaaaaay sure Jan” 

Ahhh omg this is ridiculously long and probably not very good. I think I will try to make a better girl squad and evak headcanon in the future haha sorry for messing this up :( 

Some meta-ish thoughts from this past literally bomb af episode:

  • The way the episode (and show) is built around Rosaline and Benvolio’s individual experiences but they still feel connected because the parallels between them are just so blatant and numerous that it legit feels like they’re the only ones who could truly understand the other
  • How the typical love triangle (or I guess rectangle) is presented as being so much about Rosaline and Benvolio as characters instead of just being there for the sake of drama. That the alternate love interests come to represent aspects of their lives that they both needed to let go of, and how the betrothal scene (as awesomely over-the-top as it was) was about cementing them as equals with balanced storylines and similar emotional obstacles
  • Just how goddamn good they are at Pretending™ to be in love??? Like I was expecting some flirting and lingering looks, but the casual intimacy and sincere kindness was amazing
  • The narrative framing devices for the both of them: Rosaline’s comments about Benvolio, and Benvolio’s monologue about having no one and then actually gaining a partner through a shared goal and genuine camaraderie absent of obligation, and that we finally got to see Benvolio’s grieving process, coupled with him grinning like a fool by the end because of Rosaline and their renewed hope at being free

What do you think about the lastest chapter now that a day has passed?

Oh man, admittedly I am still kind of….distantly seeing how the fandom is exploding. I have not gone into tags, but have seen things come across my dash indicating DRAMA and seen a few spurts of it on the wiki.

But overall, I think that it was not something I expected to see happen. I mean,  I joked about them doing the do last week. But I was JOKING, and I never expected to see an actual chapter-long sex scene.

I have previously expressed concern about them rushing into things, and discussed with people worries about how things could go moving forward. Doing the do changes things, and I have to wonder how Touken will handle things from here on out. Both of them have a lot of emotional issues to work through, which…..

Honestly, I think they did rush into things. In that I think having sex occurred because both of them were emotionally exhausted, and seeking out physical intimacy as a means of comfort. It was very impulsive, with them kind of leaping into things without thinking it through. No consideration for (cough) protection or foreplay, just kind of going with the flow of their emotions. 

I think the stand-alone vibe of the chapter worked, in terms of this kind of being them trying to escape the world for a moment. Kaneki has been reeling with so many things, most recently Mutsuki being a deranged Yandere. Touka is worried sick about Yoriko and feeling helpless right now. Without anything else they could do, they just…..kind of shut all that out and focused entirely on them. Physical intimacy as comfort and a way to escape for a bit. 

In terms of the actual deed and the art involved, I’ve said I think Ishida did well. I’ve seen others discuss the tone, and how Young Jump has a lot of graphic material. Compared to other sex scenes I have seen in the past, it had the feeling of being very intimate and emotional, as opposed to something intended to arouse the fans and exploit the characters. 

I felt like we got a positive portrayal of female sexuality, in that Touka avoided either major stereotype typical of women in sex scenes. She was neither blushing, weepy virgin or aggressive Sexy Dominant woman. Instead, we got a woman that was certain of what she wanted, while still actually being awkward. We got positive portrayal of consent, in terms of both spoken and unspoken communication between them. We got equal sharing of power, with them each taking active and passive roles. And them being awkward dorks that fumble, and make funny faces, and struggle with stuff.

I mean, yeah we didn’t get proper foreplay which is important folks!! But I guess it would be super-awkward to have like….all of that included in the scene. (cough) 

It is definitely divided up the fandom, that is for sure. 

I am admittedly very Whatever about sex scenes, considering I used to be an avid reader of an indie series that frequently had sex scenes. (Elfquest, good American indie fantasy series!) So I wasn’t bothered by it happening, nor was I OH MAN THIS HAD TO HAPPEN. 

I think at this point, it’s just a waiting game to see what happens next. Where their relationship develops, and how their characters change.

DEH Headcannon

Every time Evan showers and the glass fogs up, he doodles trees and stuff on the glass and he end result is so adorable. The gang, Zoe, Alana, Jared, and Connor because I’m in denial of his death, often sleepover at his house and know about these doodles, but never mention it to him. They are often so excited to see these doodles that they fight over who gets to take a shower first because Evan never shows his drawings and they’re so cute like???
“I’m gonna take a shower”
“Connor, didn’t you take one before you got here? Your hair is still we-”
and he’s already gone.

Idk where this came from or why but it sounded cute it my head. I tried not to make this a tree bros headcannon because not everyone likes that but if you do:

Every time the gang had a sleepover, everyone but Connor argues, and he pretends he doesn’t care about them. It usually ends like this;
“Since ur all gonna argue I’m just gonna go first, y'all act like children” yet when he goes in he finds them so amazing and beautiful -just like Evan- *cough* so one day Connor goes over them so they last longer and adds on to them. Evan notices and freaks out because he thinks that they would’ve disappeared and that a ghost or Jared or something did it (cause they are both equally as scary) and Connor notices Evan is kinda off and has to explain to Evan that everybody loves seeing the doodles which explains a lot.
Connor also has to explain why he added onto them and kinda goes overboard.
“Um yeah so I noticed them and I was like: Wow those are um pretty neat- like beautiful actually- and I so I wanted them to last longer I guess?” Which he all said in a pretty flat voice to make it seem like it wasn’t as nice as it actually was.
“PFT- well I mean, thank you so much- b-but like, your art is a lot better-more pretty than mine so….”
gay silence.

I’m sorry this is probably so OOC but I just want some happy Connor in my life, like realistically if he lived he probably wouldn’t be always happy but it think that he could have improved, not completely better but happier I guess? I’m terrible at explaining.
Idk where this HC came from but let’s just pretend I totally didn’t think of it randomly and just wrote it down without giving it much depth at all.

I want to know your opinion! So I know the mc in seven's route is really optimistic and cheerful, the one in jumin's is really patient, calm, and understanding, but what about Zens route? I never played his route but I like his character. Do you have any long descriptive headcanons / ideas about his mc's personality? I also love how detailed you are at giving Zen's character more depth. L O V E IT!!

AHHH THANK YOU SO MUCH!! ❤

I actually have A LOT of headcanons about the type of MC in Zen’s route (because I’ve played his route thrice heh). Here we go.

MC in Zen’s route is strictly monogamous and loyal like he is. She enjoys playfully flirting with Zen and feeding his ego. However, it’s not only as a fangirl, but also as someone who’s genuinely interested in having a romantic relationship with him. That’s what differentiates her from all the other girls. From the start, she sees Zen as a human being and a friend (and a crush, obviously), rather than just a handsome popular actor. Basically, it’s like she sees a future between the both of them, something deeper than just a idol-fan relationship, so she puts all of her loyalty to him and is disciplined about it.

MC values what’s on the inside more than what’s on the outside. It’s really easy to take a look at Zen and say that you’re in love with him because he’s so handsome, but MC sees past that and actually pays attention to his personality and attitude, (though she does love Zen because of the way he looks too). That’s also one of the reasons why she sticks out to Zen. She’s not superficial and she’s genuine about her intentions.

I think that the MC is also, most noticeably, supportive and stable. You see, in Zen’s route he experiences quite a number of setbacks, and through all of them, EVEN THE BOMB THREAT, MC has stayed by his side, assured him that everything would be okay, and overall just acted as, for the lack of a better word, his rock.

Zen seems like one of the more stable ones among the RFA members. I mean he boasts about working out, keeping healthy, and so on and so forth, but he really isn’t stable. On the outside he may present himself like this, but it’s just to make up for his insecurities and doubts about his abilities as an actor (because of his parents). MC is sensitive enough to catch on and is willing to be there to support him and act as a shoulder for him to cry on. She remains strong for the both of them when he’s down.

A point I didn’t bring up that I see a lot when writers are talking about Zen’s MC is that she’s an absolute princess. I actually really don’t think so. I think she enjoys feeling his love but she’s even happier reciprocating it, so based on romantic gestures and stuff like that, I’m pretty sure both of them express their love for each other equally, hence bringing us back to point 1 that MC’s a romantic.

All in all, MC knows when to be flirty and playful and when to just be there to help him carry his burdens. She does this for the sole reason that she loves him unconditionally.

———

I’m sure I have more points but I can’t think of them right now! I hope this was sufficient :)

Please feel free to disagree and also reblog/reply with your own take on Zen’s MC. I’d love to read what you guys think.

Thanks for reading!

15) He’s so addicted to instagram that he couldn’t help but snap his new tiger top and got his cover blown
16) One of the main reasons I love this guy is because of his relationships with other people and how they shape him so:


His relationship with Nikolai Plisetsky:
Yuri’s Grandpa. From what we know, Yuri’s parents were pretty absent. Little Yuri’s only support system was Nikolai and still is to this day. He was raised by him. His focus for Agape is his grandfather and his unconditional love for the man. He enjoys cuddles from his grandpa. The man makes Yuri Katsudon Piroshki just to cheer him up. Yuri is sad when his grandpa isn’t there and feels insecure.

fellow Russian skater and Yuri’s rink mate. I like to think they bicker like they are brother and sister. It is clear that they both support eachother.

His relationship with Nishigori Yuuko:
this is a really cute one. It is clear that Yuri forms an attachment to Yuuko over his stay in Japan. Yuuko cares for Yuri and helps him grow as a person. Yuuko is included in those that Yuri counts on for changing him and making him into a better skater. Even though Yuuko is obviously supportive of Katsuki Yuri, it is clear that she also supports Yuri P and is rooting for him. The two keep up correspondence well after Yuri P leaves Japan and this is just the best thing. Their scene when Yuri K is skating and Yuuko sees Yuri P leave is so sad but so good to show Yuri P’s vulnerability

His relationship with Katsuki Yuri
What starts as a rivalry I feel like grows into something much more. Rink mates, rivals, competitors and most of all, friends. Yuri K treats Yuri P as an equal. Even though Yuri P at the Sochi Grand Prix wanted to get across that he thought he was better than Yuri K (hence the threat scene) I feel like Yuri P was actually incredibly insecure. Even though they have a banter and rivalry, it is clear that Yuri P holds Yuri K in high regard. Yuri P remembers the other’s birthday and gives him Katsudon Piroshki as a gift. He opens up to Yuri in this scene; both of them vulnerable. When Yuri K is rumoured to be retiring, Yuri P gets extremely upset and angry. He feels like Yuri K is throwing his shot away. Also the scene in the waterfall where he lets himself be vulnerable infront of Yuri K aswell. Yeah. I love these two. As Victor said ‘‘Yuri (K), I am not the only one who got their ‘L’ words from you.(referencing Yuri P)’‘

His relationship with Victor Nikiforov:
Rink mate. Very obviously Yuri looks up to him. He knows Victor well and grew up watching the man get gold year after year. It is clear that he holds Victors opinion very highly and is very hurt that Victor leaves Russia. Even though it is better for Yuri in the long run, as it gives him something to fight for. Also, the scene after the engagement where he angrily starts kicking Victor’s back and says ‘‘Victor Nikiforov is dead’‘ is SO DEEP. Not only do we see Victor get physically angry for the first time, but we also see Yuri completely loose it. It’s clear that Yuri is projecting his fear. In my opinion, he’s scared of losing Victor even more. Infairness, it seems that Yuri doesn’t have a lot of family, and Victor was probably a big brother figure. So the thought of loosing him to Yuri K probably terrified him.

His relationship with Otabek Atlin
Saved the best till last. You all know my love for Otabae so I’ll try and keep this to mostly Yuri’s POV. Not only is Otabek his first proper friend that wasn’t out of circumstance (which is ridiculous. Yuri is 15 and has never had a friend). But Otabek respects him. Otabek treats him as a human. He opens up to him. He isn’t pushy, and Yuri likes this. The two support eachother regardless about the fact that they are competitors. They want eachother to succeed. in the WTTM manga, this is just reiterated. Yuri is so upset about his free skate. Otabek supports him, even though he was completely rOBBED OF A MEDAL. Otabek is calm and collected. Yuri doesn’t want praise after his free. He wants to be heard. Otabek is also not an idiot. Yuri is reckless where as Otabek is solid and secure and clever. Otabek runs away from him when Yuri wants to join him at a club because he knows Yuri is underage and wants to protect him. Otabek literally rescues Yuri from fangirls. Their relationship is so pure for something that lasted over a very short amount of time. 
also yes Welcome to the Madness. Yuri just literally asks Otabek to go on the Ice with him to show Yuri and Victors Duetto performance. My god. 
anyway basically regardless if you ship these two or not, they are incredibly important to eachother.

@leonoved You might as well as whether I love Salted Caramel Fudge or Black Sesame Mochi, ie. an impossible choice ;A;

Seriously though, I actually like them both equally? Awakening because it’s my first FE game, and Fates because of the Japanese High Fantasy aesthetic (in Birthright’s case at least) which ya don’t see erryday in an English-language RPG.

Also, because of my best husbandos as pictured above >3> 

Bestfriend!Jaehwan

  • you met in high school 
  • you know that guy that’s always carrying an instrument with them everywhere 
  • yeah that’s Jaehwan with his guitar, but he actually hasn’t been in a music class since 1st year 
  • claims ‘they didn’t appreciate his creative genius' 
  •  really he passed with a B and felt some type of way because he gave A+ effort 
  • Catch him the courtyard at lunch having a mini concert sometimes Sewoon is there with him. 
  •  And you, out of the kindness of your heart, are on the sidelines cheering him on and being his personal camera man 
  • just kidding, he pays you in snacks and foods in exchange for some quality camera work so he can post it on YouTube 
  • anyways but you and Jaehwan have always had classes together 
  • so you were casual in-school-only friends 
  • until one day you decided to ask him to teach you guitar 
  • you received one for a birthday a while back and you’ve just never used it because you don’t know how until you remember you have someone who might be able to teach you 
  • and Jaehwan, will never admit it, but he loves to be praised and to show off his skills so he agrees to teach you 
  • so you exchange numbers and plan a date and time to meet 
  • you end up meeting at your house 
  • when the lesson begins, apparently your guitar is ‘horrendously out of tune' 
  • so you spend the first 15 minutes learning how to tune it properly 
  • now Jaehwan isn’t.. the best teacher 
  • he’s just very straight forward, it’s either you get or you don’t and if you don’t get it…..he literally has no idea how else to explain it to you cause it makes sense to him why don’t you understand??? 
  • ‘maybe this just isn’t your thing' 
  • you mumbling 'maybe I should have asked sewoon..’  
  • 'what did you say?' 
  • ’ I SAID….. show me one more time' 
  • so you continue to practice the chords he showed you for about an half an hour until you feel finger tips going numb 
  • you just set your guitar down sighing 'I need a break, I’m gonna make some ramen. Do you want some?' 
  • looks up from his guitar 'sure if it’s not too much trouble' 
  • and as you two eat you realize you have a lot more in common then you originally thought 'oh god I hated that teacher, I forgot you were in the same class as me then' 
  • 'Oh I loved that movie too!! We should have a movie night one day' 
  • Eventually, he has to leave but you agree to meet up again the next week and after that it sudden became a ritual to meet up ever once or twice a week out of school
  • you both just enjoy each other’s company and can talk about the most random things for hours 
  • he’d always bring his guitar when you two hang out but after a while you kind of stop bringing yours (because you’ve secretly been getting real lessons from Sewoon, shhhhh)  and if you’re over his house you just end up watching Netflix or playing video games 
  • probably calls or texts you in the middle of the night to ask your opinion on song lyrics 
  • 'hey I wrote these lyrics can you read them over for me' 
  • 'Jaehwan it’s 2 in the god damn morning
  •  ’….and you’re awake and replying to me so I don’t see the problem' 
  • you: (눈_눈) but no matter what you always help him when he asks 
  • 'well this line doesn’t really make sense' 
  •  ’yOU DOnt MAKE SeNSe’ 
  • easily offended when it comes to his work 
  • but still values your input so he’ll here you out 
  • when he calls, he’ll sing some songs he’s been working on and it’s nice cause his voice is like honey and sometimes you might… accidentally fall asleep 
  • 'So y/n what did you think about that?… y/n? Did you fall asleep? This wasn’t a goD DAMN LuLLABY!! Wake UP you jERK!
  • you wake up next morning with messages saying how he’s never gonna ask for your help again. Dramatic 
  • but he’ll call again later that week cause your the only one who won’t curse him out for calling so late at night 
  • (low key thinks it’s cute that you fall asleep to his voice, won’t admit it though) 
  • somehow always knows when you’re not happy 
  • willing to give you your space and not push you if you don’t want to talk but won’t let it drag on 
  • will barge into you home with your favorite snacks and sit with you until you’re ready to talk about it
  • sometimes he’ll just strum his guitar to combat the silence or he’ll let you lay your head in his lap to comfort you  
  • acts like he doesn’t care most of the time but actually really loves all his friends and just wants to see them all living well and happy (( Tsundere af))
  • always feels like he needs to prove himself.. even when he doesn't 
  • 'Hey y/n, you know Sewoon is my best friend and all… ' 
  • 'Wait I thought I was you’re best friend' 
  • *ignores you* ’..but I’m a better guitar player than he is, right? Like be honest here I won’t tell" 
  •  'What? No, you’re both equally talented' 
  • 'But I’m older so I’m better' 
  • 'Jaehwan age has nothing to do with talent' 
  • 'Why can’t you just support me y/n' 
  •  Or 
  •  'Hey y/n what you laughing at over there?’ -
  • 'Oh Seongwoo just sent me this meme, he’s so funny' 
  • 'I’m funny too' 
  •  'Yeah funny looking' 
  •  'Rude. No y/n, listen, I’m funny too.’ Proceeds to tell you jokes that he probably heard from Jisung or Seongwoo 
  • 'Why are you like this????' 
  • Just a kid who wants to be the best in everything he does And wants to hear he’s doing well every once in while 
  • when he laughs, it’s probably you’re favorite thing. Even if what he’s laughing at isn’t even that funny, you can’t help laughing with him because his laugh is just so ridiculously loud and funny 
  • though sometimes in public you have to tell him to calm it down a bit 'Jaehwan relax, you’re gonna make some kid cry' 
  • 'Stop being dramatic, I’m not that loud’ but then you point at a little girl holding her ears closed and on the verge of tears 
  • and Jaehwan starts pushing you out the store 'We gotta go immediately' 
  • he’s one of those friends you’ve probably thought about being in a romantic relationship with because you two just click 
  • but then you look over on the couch where he’s sitting, eating crumbs off his shirt and those thoughts immediately leave your head 
  • a platonic soulmate 
  • someone you know, no matter where you go in life or what paths you take, they’ll always be there for you

anonymous asked:

i know you ship namo (nayeon + momo?) or just like it? but i'm kind of new to twice ships and i haven't seen much of namo so i was wondering if you could like describe their dynamic or why you like it or something ? thanks

*cracks knuckles* my time has come.

(Disclaimer, this isn’t about shipping, this is just my take on their dynamic and why I like it.)

Honestly, (in the kindest possible way) Momo’s a little slow - she attests to this herself, and moreover she’s extraordinarily innocent, and this is largely what defines her relationship with Nayeon.

Firstly, Momo is Nayeon’s #1 victim. No members of twice can be easily fooled by Im Nayeon, no one except Hirai Momo. (There’s an actual 4 minute video out there somewhere of Nayeon tapping Momo whilst she’s not looking and not getting caught, and Momo is utterly clueless. And let’s not forget the ice cream incident in TEPL). Whilst any other member would have probably kicked back at Nayeon’s antics by now, Momo hasn’t. I think it might’ve been Chaeyoung who once said that Momo gets teased a lot by the Twice members, she’s slow but she has a lot of humility, she takes everything on the chin and doesn’t mind being a victim if it makes the other members happy - and no one finds teasing funnier than Nayeon.

Nayeon’s a little clueless too, (the upside-down knife incident, believing her crisp packet was broken because she was holding it the wrong way up, going months using slow 3G on her phone because she forgot to switch on her data), but she’s mature in ways Momo isn’t. She’s over a year older than any of the other members, and has said before that she sees it as her responsibility to look after the youngest members - particularly Chaeyoung and Tzuyu, and I honestly believe she puts Momo in this category too, despite Momo being the third oldest. She doesn’t baby Momo like she does the maknaes, but Nayeon definitely coddles her, and whilst she’s the first to tease Momo, she’s also the first to protect her. Ever noticed how whenever Momo has an incident, (wardrobe malfunction, accident, etc.), Nayeon is the first by her side, (I can literally name five instances off the top of my head alone). This could be a coincidence, but, think back to a few weeks ago. Whilst rehearsing for TT on a poorly designed stage, Momo almost tumbled right off the side which surely would’ve left her with a bad injury had it not been for Nayeon’s quick intervention. A few days later, Nayeon revealed that she was able to get to Momo in time because she knew that Momo was close to the edge and that Momo “takes big steps” when she walks, and ran over to Momo because she thought her shout wouldn’t be heard over the music - Nayeon knew Momo would hurt herself BEFORE the girl even moved.

Furthermore, whilst she occasionally likes to faux-rebel under the influence of the likes of Jeongyeon, Momo’s naturally obedient, and I think Nayeon especially appreciates this within a group who love to ignore the authority of and mock their ‘eldest unnie’. Momo values Nayeon’s opinion higher than most, (remember when Nayeon off-handedly once said Momo would suit short hair and now Momo won’t stop talking about it), to the point where fans have taken to calling Momo “whipped” by Nayeon.

I like to compare Nayeon to Tinkerbell - she needs applause to live. In the nicest way, she’s a narcissist, she needs compliments and affirmations to survive. And what does Momo do best? (“I like you both ways” “You’re so pretty I didn’t even see the flowers”). Momo doesn’t compliment people selfishly - she doesn’t do it to receive compliments in turn, or to gain favour, it’s genuine, she probably doesn’t even really think before she says them, and that’s probably what makes her ‘flirting’ even more effective. And Nayeon adores it.

Their 'game’ is actually one of the similarities between them, next to Sana, NaMo are probably the second and third best flirts in Twice, (snake line ftw), and neither are strangers to skinship or affection. Whilst their attentions aren’t most frequently turned to each other, (like Sana to Dahyun), when they are, Nayeon and Momo have some of the best (gayest) moments in Twice history. (Remember in TEPL when Momo was giving Nayeon a massage and then just started backhugging her instead and they lay there cuddling? Iconic.) They also play really well together, I think parts of their personalities, particularly their senses of humour, are actually quite similar, (I’d vote them both Most Likely To adopt and raise a family of plushies). They both have fake maknae tendencies in different but equal rights.

Ultimately whilst they can both be slow and flirty, Nayeon’s mature and protective where Momo’s innocent and trusting, their similarities and differences compliment each other equally. That’s why I like them.


Also, one time they just skipped out on filming Twice TV3 to go on a beach date together. Just saying.

anonymous asked:

grif and sister for the headcanon thing omg

Sorry I took so long to reply my laptop is giving me hell and I wanted to be able to tag this ;_;

Grif

Headcanon A: what I think realistically:

ok so I definitely headcanon that Grif is a low-key genius based on all the little hints given in the show, like Church pointing Grif out that is smarter than all the other reds put together, Grif flat out saying he went to Harvard in the Columbus day PSA (also hinting that he also got into Columbia university but it was easier than Harvard), and the fact that he learned to speak Spanish fluently in like a couple weeks in the new season

I also headcanon that he has a lot of potential but has just been way too bitter about being forced into the army in the first place to do anything with that potential… but I think this might actually be canon at this point?

Headcanon B: what I think is fucking hilarious:

Grif being equally as flexible as Kai would be so funny to me. Like Tucker would tease him and Simmons SO MUCH about sex position stuff. it would be relentless.

I don't know if this one is necessarily funny but contrary to most of the fandom I headcanon that the Grifs are actually really tall and just big people in general like both of them being over 6ft (I don’t really have any specifics down) but on the other end, I headcanon Tucker as being the smallest and sometimes I just like to imagine Grif and Tucker interacting because of that massive height difference XD

C: what is heart-crushing and awful but fun to inflict on friends:

ummm I'm gonna try to keep this short but i’m a whump and angst lover so I have SO MANY of headcanons that go here. Like basically both of the Grif’s entire childhoods were canonically worse than shit so I don’t even need to make too much stuff up XD. I do imagine Grif and Kai were probably homeless for at least part of their childhood and constantly on the run from cps because they were afraid of being split up and then forced into shitty foster homes. Maybe Grif got involved in some less than reputable groups while growing up so maybe that’s why he’s so good at theivn’ people’s weapons and other stuff. 

I also headcanon that Grif’s hair is like one of his few aspects that he actually takes pride in (for cultural and personal reasons) so when they buzzed it all off when he was drafted he was so upset but tried not to show it. He has grown it back out to being really long tho once he got to blood gulch because no one really gave a shit about standards, so there is a silver lining I guess.

he totally didn’t sleep through the entire massacre on his first base/colony. He was asleep at first but you can only sleep through bloody murder for so long. He did try to fight at first but eventually realized there wasn’t much he could do so he just his until it was over.

Also based on his behavior, it seems like in addition to his canonical OCD he also seems to exhibit symptoms of depression, like the apathy and inability to feel motivated. Poor guy also probably has PTSD from the colony. someone give my boy a hug.

option D: what would never work with canon but the canon is shit so I believe it anyway:

This one is tough? i guess because canon isn’t that deep™ so I guess technically all my headcanons could go here XD uhhh I guess Grif can surf and dabbled in football a bit when he pulled his like together in his late teens for scholarship money? (who fuckin knows how he had time for it, I sure don’t.) That’s one of the reasons his go to move is to tackle people. It’s the only thing he knows how to do that works and doesn’t actually kill people. 

Grif hates actually killing people so if its close range combat he hesitates and messes up a lot. It’s easier when they are far away or he’s in the warthog because then he doesn’t associate them with people as much as when he’s face to face with other soldiers.

Grif is pretty good at instruments. he knows how to play the ukulele and guitar and likes to mess around with other stuff but those two are his main instruments. and we need a resident artist so maybe he likes to doodle and sketch but never shows anyone any of his drawings EVER. One time Donut caught hin and asked him “is that anime” so now he even more secretive about it.

Kai

Headcanon A: what I think realistically: 

this is hard because she has so little character development but I guess that she’s actually smarter than she seems. Like Grif, she plays dumb and says weird shit just to mess with people. She’s also really good at manipulating people for this reason.

She’s a really good gymnast because of her flexibility and cheerleading experience. She’s agile and can give Carolina a run for her money in the sweet flips category

Headcanon B: what I think is fucking hilarious:

Kai is just a funny character to begin with but I do headcanon that she and Tucker never really went further than talking or flirting. Tucker was so nervous about hanging out with her that they just played video games or something. She was really nice about it tho, she didn’t even mention that he didn’t bring the sniper rifle XD

C: what is heart-crushing and awful but fun to inflict on friends:

a lot of this is kinda the same as Grif as far as the childhood goes, but I do like the idea that since their parents abandoned them on father’s and mother’s day she would get (or steal) cards for Grif and cross out mom/dad and write brother. Grif always cried. every time.

option D: what would never work with canon but the canon is shit so I believe it anyway:

literally all of my Kai headcanons can go here. She is such an underutilized character. I really like the idea of her being a language nerd? Like she knew Spanish way better than anyone else at blood gulch and probably also knows Hawaiian and I think it would be cool if she learned Sangheili after hanging out with junior so much at blood gulch.

my new favorite thing that is more of a hopeful prediction that will never come true I guess than a headcanon is that at the desert arts fest at the alien temples, she found an alien sword because I need my girl to have some freaking character development, please. 

Kai loves to dance, is a decent singer, and can play the ukulele!


ok this got SO LONG and I still have more but this is all I could think of for now XD

hannigram - an abusive relationship?

Spoiler alert: it’s not. (But it kind of is. I’ll go in depth about that in a moment.)

I wrote this for a conversation I had in twitter, and thought I wouldn’t need to post it here, but since I saw yet another person claiming that hannigram is abusive I thought I’d post this.

People use the term abusive about relationships that are unhealthy (in their opinion), as evindence for why it should not be shipped/supported. The correct definition of abuse is:

“Treating badly or injurously, mistreating, especially psysically.”

And of relationship abuse it is:

“A pattern of abusive and coercive behaviors used to maintain power and control over a former or current intimate partner. Abuse can be emotional, financial, sexual or physical and can include threats, isolation, and intimidation. Abuse tends to escalate over time. When someone uses abuse and violence against a partner, it is always part of a larger pattern of control.”

So according to this it is abusive, I get it. They both try to kill each other multiple times, they manipulate and lead each other on. They don’t sexually abuse each other though, which at least in my opinion is the worst sort of abuse and I couldn’t ship a couple who did that to one another.

The other thing in this description that doesn’t quite match Hannigram is “abuse tends to escalate over time – it is always a part of larger pattern of control”. The mental abuse between them is at it’s worst in S1 where Hannibal manipulates Will into believing he’s a killer - but this is not to show his power over him, it is simply the only way Hannibal can bring Will into his life. Hannibal has after the first half of S2 been ready to drop the manipulation and violence between them as soon as Will does. And I haven’t seen anyone blame Will of being the main abuser, even though it could be argued that it’s solely his fault that the abuse continues.

The reason why Hannigram doesn’t fit the normal description of abuse is because their relationship is meant to be read as symbolic, not as a literal ideal of love. It’s fiction, and it should be treated as such. Fiction is great, because we can explore possibilities and relationships etc. that aren’t possible in real life. Thankfully the majority in this fandom are really intelligent and understand this, and only few people have failed at understanding what the shoe is about. That group still exists, and that’s why I felt the need to post this

What I believe the antis actually mean when they say it’s abusive is not just that it is violent and manipulative, but that “It’s an abuser/abused relationship, Hannibal is evil and Will is innocent, their relationship won’t work and does more bad than good for both of them, or at least for Will”.

Like I said earlier, it’s not a healthy relationship and it’s not one that I literally want for myself or for anyone I care about - but it’s not unbalanced. At least when we reach the end of third season they are certainly equals, there’s no denying it. I understand that some people don’t ship it because it’s too far from an ideal realtionship, and that’s okay, but hating on it and denying the fact that they’re equals who both choose each other in the end is just plain ignorant.

Will has always been alone, always been different. His relationship with Hannibal gets so close so fast because Hannibal is the first person who actually sees him. I’m gonna quote a Hannigram fic here because I think it described their relationship so well. (Will to Hannibal:) “You always wanted me to be the best version of myself when no one else accepted me for what I already was.” Just like Hannibal let Will see him, Will also let Hannibal see him. Hannibal didn’t “make an innocent puppy become a murderer”, he helped him to become what he already had the potential for.

If the antis and/or deniers have only seen season one, I need to admit that I understand them. Will did kind of seem like an innocent dog loving introvert back then if you didn’t pay much attention to details (like how coldly he treats the parents of the missing girl, how he isn’t afraid of human contact but despises it, how his humor is so dark that it often shocks his colleagues and friends and so on. I could make a post about this, if anyone is interested about that let me know). The first season is about Hannibal manipulating everyone into thinking Will is a killer, experimenting on Will and he does seem like a coldhearted psychopath there.

In season two we see Will gaining more power back, him manipulating and even seducing Hannibal. He isn’t afraid to kill a man in the progress, he eats people with Hannibal almost flirtatiously. This is not what an “innocent” man would do, or even what innocent man physically could do. The darkness inside him is becoming more clear, and even he himself admits that even though he wants to, he can’t hate Hannibal.

Will (to Peter): “I envy your hate. Makes it much easier when you know how to feel.”

He still betrays Hannibal in mizumono (even though he does call him at the last minute to warn him). Before I always though it was just because Will was still trying to cling to some sort of morality, but after Hugh’s comments it is obvious that Will was also afraid Hannibal didn’t and/or couldn’t love him the way he loved him, and so he thought it would be dangerous for him to run away with him and trust Hannibal with his life and wellbeing. Here is what Hugh said:

“I think Will has probably in some way never conceived the possibility that Hannibal could be in love. I mean, he’s got such a black heart. The awareness that they have this connection is something Will knows and is probably in some way profoundly ashamed of, and is also, you know, he keeps coming back to and actually kinda fills him with joy as well. But I don’t think he’d ever give it the name love, because I don’t think he’d ever associate love with Hannibal. – He’s never thought of Hannibal as being capable of love. Because like most of us, he probably had love put off on a kind of pedestal, as an idea, a more perfect thing, as he made the awful realisation: ‘Oh crap, maybe this thing I’m feeling is like love.‘”

I think it is clear to everybody at this point that Hannibal loves Will. His love, though, isn’t your typical “murderer obsessed with a beautiful and innocent woman (obviously man in this case)”. Hannibal loves Will because they understand each other, because they share a way of seeing the world, but also because they have interesting conversations and because they share the same sense of himor and have fun together. In a way, it’s just normal love, just deeper and richer since neither of them has ever had a change to explore that kind of love with anyone else before.

So to conclude: if you take it literally, yes, it is abusive, but that doesn’t make it wrong to ship it, by Hannibal standards at least. (The whole show is a little fucked up so if you can’t live with that why are you here?) Also, it has been abusive until this point only because they (well, mostly Will) have still struggled to accept their feelings for each other. Hannibal has only physically hurt Will if he has betrayed his trust or tried to hurt him first. Personally I don’t believe Hannibal would ever hurt Will again if they were to be a real couple. He also stopped the mindgames and manipulation as early as when Will got out of prison, knowing what he was. And Will has hurt and betrayed Hannibal mostly because of the reasons I stated earlier, because he thought it was the only way to save himself. If they stopped their game of cat and mouse (a game of cat and mouse where the roles change from time to time, or maybe even better description would be a game of cat and cat like Bryan called it) I wholeheartedly believe that they could live in a relationship where neither of them abuses the other.

Like Bryan once said, the core of their relationship is that:

“They had imagined they were unique before they saw each other. Obviously it took Will longer to appreciate that because he didn’t quite realize what he was dealing with in Hannibal, but Hannibal sees it instantly. It’s two people who have never been - I mean Will probably wears it heavier - but still, essentially alone in the world and then see some kind of, maybe not mirror image but the other side of their coin.”

And like Hugh said:

“In a sense the two of them have been wandering the Earth, totally isolated, because they have such a specific and elevated mentality. Not identical, but it is as if not only are you the greatest chess player on the planet, you’re actually the only person on the planet that can play chess. And then suddenly you walk into a roon one day and there’s a guy playing chess. I think that’s how they feel about each other.”

If you leave out the murder and cannibalism and manipulation, Hannigram is about two people who are different than anyone else finding love in each other. Their relationship evolves slowly from friends to lovers, and even though they try to move on neither of them can because they share something so intimate. So in its own, weird and symbolic way, i think Hannibal and Will’s relationship is build on a much better base and is possibly even healthier than many other ships and canon couples out there.
