i don't know what scene this is but i need it

What hit me the hardest in the airport scene was Victor’s expression when he runs to Yuri. Victor’s almost always cool and confident, or flirty and silly. A few times we saw him shocked, worried, or confused, but he’s never looked utterly vulnerable like this:

Just from being separated from Yuri, he looks so desperate to hold him again, like he’s broken without him. There’s so much concern and yearning in his eyes.

And then he stands there with his arms open, silently pleading for him, like  Please I need you

Victor Nikiforov, you are in SO DEEP.

My “Oh, Victuuri is canon” moment

So, I was watching YOI episode 6, probably unblinking in my calm, awestruck daze as usual, when there was a scene that hit home what we unanimously felt was going to happen: Victor and Yuuri are canon. But it wasn’t the hand holding/forehead touch scene, nor Yuuri’s internal monologue of “Victor is mine and mine alone” bit, and it wasn’t Victor telling Yuuri that he doesn’t have to picture katsudon and women anymore to seduce him/the crowd. The part that got me thinking that Victuuri is practically canon is rather understated but none the less important.

This. This right here made me audibly gasp at the weight of my revelation. There’s a saying that when you fall in love with another person, their problems and triumphs become your own. Even before the score was known, Victor was overjoyed with Yuuri’s performance. He showed more emotion in someone else’s victory than he did even in his own.

His was more of a reserved, “What else did you expect? Of course I won.” But in this case, Victor was unrestrained and visibly overjoyed and overwhelmingly proud of Yuuri as he pumped his fists in the air, jumped a little, and shouted loud enough to probably echo inside a real skating rink.

This is when I first picked up on, “Victor’s in love with Yuuri.” But then we have this.

Victor is showing even more emotion than Yuuri is over his own victory. He claps his hands, his cheeks flushed, and then he throws his arms around Yuuri because he just can’t stand not hugging him for a second longer. There is pure bliss written in Victor’s face the moment he wraps his arms around Yuuri, and then he’s got the biggest smile on his face as he works to reassure Yuuri that his performance was above and beyond amazing.

Yuuri, I’m sure, is frozen in numb disbelief. That’s my only real thought about why Yuuri didn’t seem to react like I would have expected. Until it was pointed out, I thought at first Yuuri was leaning forward and squinting because he couldn’t believe his own score. After all, last episode we found out that his score of 94.36 was his personal best in SP. And now his score is triple-digits in the SP? It would shock me too. (Of course, I rescinded this thought after I remembered he was near-sighted. Boy, don’t I know that feeling. lol)

Anyway, my point is that following the moment after Yuuri finished his SP and Victor rejoiced with such passion, there was a certain tenderness in the way he behaved toward Yuuri that solidied my, “Yeah, they’re canon.” I just wanted to throw my own two-cents in.

“I am the governor, and protecting the people who live here is something that I must do.”

Let’s all pray that what I am about to say will have become obsolete by next Sunday night or the end of the series, but still, it needs to be said.

This scene is nonsensical garbage.

So much progress destroyed in a heartbeat. And turns out it’s not even Sherlock’s doing.

You know what I hate the most about it? Molly Hooper is a tool. And I’m not even talking of her having to deliver John’s message. Which is dreadful enough.

I’m thinking ‘narrative tool’.

Molly is undermined as being Victorian Mrs. Hudson’s worst nightmare: a plot device. This scene erases what Molly fundamentally is only to emphasise the drama going on between John and Sherlock. All I’ve read since are wonderful attempts in fanfic to fix this mistake. Because let’s face it. The Molly Hooper we know would never have agreed to say such a thing without at least providing some sort of comfort to Sherlock. Amirite? I call that a royal screw up. This is Mofftiss yet again shifting things around to serve their purpose. 

You can’t blame them for distancing their writing from ACD’s. They did their own version. Fine. But I am not going to let slide the fact that they managed to betray their one and only original creation. In one single line! All because everything needs to revolve around the two blokes. 

Utter bullshit.

Now, putting that disgusting fact aside and focusing on the story: by the end of the first episode, not one but two main characters are sacrificing themselves for the sake of keeping this toxic relationship at the center of the stage (and female ones at that. Talk about feminism. Is that what TAB was about Mofftiss? To get you off the hook for what is to come?).

One of them is even sacrificing herself in the most literal sense. 

And you know what? I should have known. They keep repeating it and yet I didn’t listen. It’s all about the two blokes. Molly doesn’t count. Mary even less. I’m heartbroken. 

What’s the point of my rant? This:

It is of course too late for Mary. And that’s a massive shame. But Molly. Molly Hooper is due. She is fucking due. If nothing comes out of this, and I’m talking BIG, I’m done.

Arthur came back to life without any warning or whatsoever. He just one day popped up behind Merlin and took him by surprise, aka the merthur au no one needed

In case you wanted another feels angle for the ILY SCENE...

I just realized that there’s something else in Sherlocks expression when he utters the second and heart melting ILY. There isn’t just realization…there’s peace. Which sounds crazy, considering the circumstances. Think about that.

The rest of that phone call, before and after his declaration, he is bordering on panic. But in that moment of the second ILY, something visibly shifts. And you can see in his suddenly softer gaze that it’s almost like he’s been transported away from the fear for just the briefest moment. It’s like his words and that accompanying realization physically calms him, even in that horrifying scenario. And if this doesn’t fit with everything else we’ve ever been given of Molly and Sherlock, I don’t know what does.

That love is a force to be reckoned with and nobody can convince me otherwise.

So. I’ve been quite obsessed with Yuri!!!on Ice lately, and my blog is not even about yoi, but i really need to post this.
Maybe i’m overanalizing this scene, but hear me out.
I want you guys to look closely at Victor’s right arm.
At the end of this sequence, he is skating backwards. And his body follows him.
Everything but his right arm.
It just stay there, it doesn’t move as the rest of the body. And what does that mean?
In what situation does a body do that?
When you’re pulling someone towards you.
Plus, we can say that he’s looking at somethig (someone?) right in front of him. (and that little smile he makes? 💗)
I would like to add too that in a promo like eight months ago, you can also see Yuuri in an ice rink with the same lighting, skating. Idk guys, but to me it seems like something that would explode in our faces for having it but not noticing.
So yes, I firmly believe that he will skate “Stay close to me” with Yuuri, maybe in Hasetsu. We’ll see.
Again, maybe I’m overanalizing. But I wanted to share because I’m so hopeful for this to finally happen.
(is my grammar ok? hope it’s ok. I’m just a poor foreign fanboy with so much to share)

EDIT: I just fixed something. This scene was actually in ep 1. In the promo what you can see is Yuuri dancing, but not Victor. Still, they seem related because of the lighting and the perform they are making.

“I didn’t want it to be my way. I wanted it to be ours. Me and you.”
“We’re still here. The two of us. We’re still standing.”

I’m still not over how Michonne specifies that “we” means her and Rick. Like a lot of characters, Michonne often speaks in plurals this way because family and solidarity are important themes of the show. And in the previous scenes like this, you can infer that while Rick and Michonne are having the conversation, the sentiments are equally applicable to the whole family. 

And it’s applicable to the whole family here, too, but in this scene, the writers consciously put the group on the back-burner and prioritized Richonne.  

In doing so, they illustrate how Michonne prioritizes Rick. Everyone is in this together, but Michonne is acknowledging that just the two of them are also in it together in a way that’s removed from everyone else - as leaders and lovers and parents and kindred spirits. So when something needs to be done about Negan, she doesn’t want to make anything happen unless it’s with Rick. And when she looks back at everything that’s transpired, she sees Rick as the person she survived it with. 

Which, you know, shouldn’t come as any surprise because she’s in love with him and fucking him but it’s still nice when it gets verbalized. 

He is honestly so important to her. This is the man who saved her life. This is the man who claimed to want her gone but repeatedly allowed her to stay. This is the man who cracked a fucking joke just for her. He told her she belonged with him them. He scrambled to the gates to see her when she came back from runs. He asked her to be a parent to his child. He brought her back

She would do anything for him. 

We interrupt your regularly scheduled blogging to inform you that I saw The Handmaiden last night and it instantly catapulted into my top ten movies list

If you like

  • lesbians
  • HAPPY lesbians
  • WHO GET A HAPPY ENDING
  • (I know that’s a spoiler but IT’S IMPORTANT)
  • absolutely gorgeous visuals
  • and costumes
  • and music
  • not a single white character because the setting is 1930′s Japan-occupied Korea
  • lesbians
  • absolutely gorgeous visuals that vaguely reminded me of Hannibal, because of the very deliberate cinematography and the attention lavished upon the DEEPLY DISTURBING and the fact that pretty much every scene has a very tense thread of eroticism
  • Eroticism that sometimes purposefully REALLY SHOULDN’T BE THERE, OH DEAR GOD
  • a plot that folds in and around on itself like a fucking origami
  • and that is explicitly about how the exploitation of women is awful
  • and that made my jaw hit the floor at least four different times, somewhere M. Night Shyamalan is sobbing in the corner
  • no seriously, I need to watch this at least once more because THE TWISTS, SWEET JESUS, I WAS RIVETED
  • lesbians
  • who are smart af and also ADORABLE SCHMOOPY NERDS
  • villains who get what they deserve
  • obligatory sexy corset-removing scenes
  • obligatory sexy bathtime scenes
  • obligatory explicit sex scenes that are really the only beef I have with this movie because was that really necessary did the camera have to linger that long
  • literally being able to make all the handmaiden and feudal lord jokes I know you guys love
  • Gone Girl if everything was much prettier and 500% more gay
  • literally gay
  • LESBIANS

you need to see it. 

Probably twice.

Funny story: I promised myself this go ‘round that I was under no circumstances going to analyze the Holby City: Winter Trailer.  At all. I was going to be very mature and watch the Trailer one time like all the normal people in the GA general audience who have watched it the way it was meant to be viewed. Once.  And that was going to to be that.

Apparently the actual, literal translation of I’m not going to analyze the Holby City Winter Trailer this time around is: Imma gonna watch that sucker 75 times, backwards and forwards, in slow motion, frame by frame, screenshot Serena’s scenes, catalogue and label blouses, earrings, hair-line and makeup, cross reference with spoilers and official synopses and a preview video to come up with some ideas.  Forget one theory. I’ve got six. I could blame @nicolaruth27 because she tagged me this morning and asked for some CSI level investigation, but that would be unfair as we all know I would have done this anyway.  In any case I’m shoving it all under a read-more, mostly to save my six, I can’t believe you’re hanging in you precious people followers who don’t watch Holby City and obsess over Serena and Bernie and anyone else in the tag who simply like to watch the pretty gifs and have no use for the rambling prognostications of the obsessed theories.

In which anti-shippers prove not watching scenes they don’t like and then meta’ing about how they’re not important makes them look foolish.  

Regina expressing a desire for romantic love.

Here we have Tink offering to help her find love and she doesn’t think it’s possible.

Tinker Bell: You know, I’ve got an idea. I can help people find what they need, Regina.
Regina: And what do I need?
Tinker Bell: You don’t even know? That’s so sad. Regina, love. You need love.
Regina: You’re gonna help me find another soulmate?
Tinker Bell: It is possible to find love again. I’ve never seen pixie dust fail. It will find you your perfect match. If you let it, you’ll find your happy ending.

And here we have Regina expressing regret that she didn’t allow herself to take a chance on love.

3.18

And here we have Snow telling her not to hold herself back and… shockingly she goes and finds the man she has feelings for.

Snow:  Don’t let anything hold you back.

4.08

And here we have Regina wishing she’d taken a chance on love decades ago.

Regina: This makes me wonder why we didn’t do this a few decades ago.

Essentially the entire season 3 and 4A plot revolves around Regina’s desire for this relationship and for romantic love in general and her belief that her loss of it is karmic.  That’s why she goes looking for the author.  It is her central motivating force.

No matter how much whining you do about the idiocy of the pixie dust plot device will change that this is the story they told.  If it’s the story they should have told is a debatable point.  If there were better stories they could have told is a debatable point.  But pretending that this material isn’t relevant just because you don’t want it to be is silly.


Oh and let’s go back to how her entire soul broke in two.  So you don’t like Outlaw Queen.  How about some Stable Queen.

1.18

2.05

REGINA MILLS HAS A STORY THAT IS EXPLICITLY ONE OF WANTING, LOOSING, AND REDISCOVERING ROMANTIC LOVE (AND LOOSING IT AGAIN).

If you are saying that is not her story you have willfully ignored entire swaths of the narrative that don’t fit your desires.  Frankly I don’t care.  You are perfectly welcome to not like Outlaw Queen (or Stable Queen but I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like Stable Queen).  But you look like a fool to sit here and argue that Regina doesn’t want romantic love.

This is the danger of skipping scenes you do not like and not taking the writing of your NoTP seriously while still claiming to meta about one of the characters involved.

You can not discuss Regina Mills canon story and ignore Outlaw Queen.  You can’t.

‘I wanted to give you something.’

‘Why? For what? Why are you giving me anything? What is it?’

‘Open it and see.’

It was a book—an archaic-looking hardcover book with a reddish-gold cover. The spine was elaborate despite the fact that most of the cover was faded with age. He could just make out the words ‘Paradise Lost’ on the spine.

‘You’re giving this to me? Why?’

‘I wanted to give it to you as a thank you.’

Sin had no idea what to say. A voice in the back of his head ordered him to give it back, but Sin’s fingers only dug harder into the cover. ‘Why do you keep thanking me?’

‘Because you’re nice to me. And you listened when I—You could have ignored me and you didn’t. And I… I appreciate that.’

‘Oh.’ Sin stared at the book. ‘I see.’

heterosexual pandering? in my danganronpa?? it’s more likely than you think

It’s the last 5 minutes of 6x11, there’s a new big bad (SHOCKER) and Beacon Hills is in trouble (AGAIN, SAY WHAT?). 

We see Scott and the rest of the pack, they’re worried but ready to fight and they need all the help they can get if they want to defeat this villain, but they’re missing a few people and they can use their help. The scene changes– 

It’s Lydia and Stiles in D.C. in bed together, snuggling, a duvet covers their otherwise naked bodies. They give each other a short but sweet kiss. A phone rings. Lydia picks it up. It’s Scott. The scene changes again–

It’s Lydia, now clothed, packing her things while Stiles watches with a concerned face. 

S: “I hate that I can’t leave… I want to help. And I can’t if i’m stuck here.”

L: “Stiles, it’s gonna be fine. And you know you can’t miss training…”

S: “Yeah, I know. But don’t forget to call me. For anything. Keep me updated. I need to know that you guys are all okay.”

Lydia seeing how worried Stiles is, walks over to him and holds both of his hands.

L: “It’s gonna be fine. I promise. Just focus on training. Scott’s got it under control.”

Lydia and Stiles lock lips, the kiss deepens until they have to catch their breath. The scene ends with them in a tight embrace.


So this is a rough draft of how I would like Stiles to be incorporated in some way other than just the finale. I know Lydia wouldn’t be in most of the episode, but if it could end like this, I would be more than content. Plus, once she gets to Beacon Hills she would be a part of the whole plot. 

I picture Lydia trying to be with Stiles as much as possible before she has to head out to MIT, since Stiles can’t really leave D.C. if his training has already started.

I need more Stydia, in any way (any position *wink*) and as many reminders that Lydia and Stiles are in fact a couple as we can possibly get.

Once, when his uncles asked him what gift he wanted for his nameday, he begged them for a dragon. “It wouldn’t need to be a big one. It could be little, like I am.” His uncle Gerion thought that was the funniest thing he had ever heard, but his uncle Tygett said, “The last dragon died a century ago, lad.” That had seemed so monstrously unfair that the boy had cried himself to sleep that night.
