YGO Actor AU

- Kaiba’s actor is actually the one who makes the most mistakes/bloopers
- Ishizu’s actress tends to space out a lot during shoots but no one says anything about it since it perfectly matches her ‘mysterious fortune-teller character’
- the directors have Yami’s actor tanned for a while in preparation for season five
- the actors actually enjoy it when the fans tell them about their ships
- Yugi’s actor tends to just laugh awkwardly to Yami’s actor whenever people try to imitate their “aibou” moments
- no one is more invested in the shippings than Marik’s actor
- Marik’s actor made it his mission to update the fans of anything shippy around the set via Twitter. The fans love him for it.
- none of the actors portraying the Ishtars are actually related. Doesn’t stop them from having family nights during weekends tho
- Marik’s actor claims that the Ishtar family night outs actually help them understand their characters more
- surprisingly, Anzu’s actress actually adore the dramatic scenes the most

I bet you Sherlock and John were pen pals when they were little, they just don’t remember it. Like Sherlock would have really cute bee stationery his mum bought him  - without lines, because he’s too old for lines - and one of those address stickers but with bees on them. And he wouldn’t really want to have a pen pal at first, because who needs those, and also, the name is stupid, his mum makes him write in pencil anyways. Which is okay because he has one with honeycomb designs. But his mum signs him up anyways and he gets a letter from John in the mail, and his letter has pirate stationery and Sherlock thinks this is so cool and Sherlock (Billy) writes to John about pirates, and John returns with another letter complimenting him on the bee stationery and asking him how he made the address sticker, and it just goes on until they get a little too old for pen pals, or John moves away. And years and years later they’re living together and in love and Rosie starts getting older and Mrs. Holmes thinks she should get a pen pal too, but who even does that nowadays, like no one, it’s an old-fashioned concept, but Mrs. Holmes gets her these fancy address stickers and Rosie just needs to use them, so she does. And she shows John and Sherlock her first letter and asks them to take her to the post office to mail it out and they both see the bee address label and think….oh

as her child grows, Lysandra will begin to gradually transform back into her true self.

Smash

“Where did my purple outfit go,” says Viktor, forlornly.

“We’re on teams now, stupid,” Yurio kindly explains from the floor, two feet from the television. His grandpa constantly frets over his eyesight. “You and I are red, and Katsudon is blue. It’s how Super Smash Bros works.”

“I want to be on Yuuri’s team.” Yuuri, who’s stretched out on the couch with his bare feet propped up in Viktor’s lap, wiggles his toes and smiles.

“That wouldn’t be fair, Vitya. Yurio needs extra firepower more than I do.”

“Nothing’s fair,” says Viktor, staring wistfully at Yuuri’s ankles.

“We’re starting!” Yurio snaps. “PAY ATTENTION!”

“Where am I?” Viktor questions, shoving at his control stick with a finger.

“Katsuki already fricking blasted you off the map, that’s what! Just! Stand over there! Shoot arrows at him with Link!”

“Did I do it,” Viktor asks mildly, eyes off the screen, as Link sluggishly swings his sword a stage away from the fierce battle between Yuuri’s Zelda and Yurio’s Samus. “Did I help?”

“NO!” Yurio screeches, as his character flies from the screen. “Get a new strategy!”

“Hmm,” says Viktor. A few moments later, Yurio’s fury turns to triumph.

“HELL YES, KATSUKI! Your playing SUCKS NOW, did you get tired? HAH!” The teen turns, controller lifted victoriously above his head. “YOU– ARGH!”

Viktor calmly sits up, disentangling his hands from Yuuri’s controller, freshly kissed lips smiling. “Go red team,” Yuuri breathes. In a great show of determination, his eyes have not left the television screen once.

“Honestly,” Viktor sighs to himself at Yurio’s death glare, standing up and walking to the liquor cabinet. “When Yuuri asked, I thought Super Smashed Bros was a drinking game…”

60. “Before you decide to murder me, let me explain…” Silverflint.

When Flint finally felt good enough to leave his hut on Maroon Island he had expected to wake up to the crew re-stocking the ship. He had caught a rather nasty cold, complete with body aches and a fever. He’d managed two days on his feet and giving orders when it had first hit him, but after that both Silver and Madi insisted he rest. So he had put Silver in charge. That included relying on him to find a way to get the crew to eat the fruits provided to them by Madi’s people to help fight off a widespread case of scurvy.

Half the crew didn’t believe that fruit could cure such a thing and the other half positively balked at the idea of eating fruit, claiming that it “didn’t go with anything edible.”

So when Flint made his way down to the beach that morning, he looked with incredulous and wide eyes at the sight of dozens of men in various positions and states of sleep strewn all over the place. Beside them were countless rum bottles, their contents in various states of consumption. 

“What the fuck?” he shouted, loud enough to jar the men closest to him wide awake. He marched over to the lone tent in the middle of the mess of drunk pirates. One man was even naked and passed out under a palm tree.

“Silver!” he roared as he threw back the tent flaps. Silver had been seated behind a small desk. He quickly stood up and held out a palm as a peace offering.

“I know,” he started quickly, “Before you decide to murder me, let me explain…”

“Those men are all dead drunk.”

“Yes, I am aware–”

“They look as though they’ve been celebrating for days.”

“Ah, no not that long–”

“I told you to feed them fruit and stock the ship. Was that so difficult?”

“Will you shut the fuck up for one minute?”

Flint’s mouth closed–just. He glared at Silver, feeling like he could breathe fire. Silver stood in front of him, looking quite sober, he notice with some relief.

“We had discussed the difficulties in getting the men to eat the fruit,” he began in a careful tone as if Flint couldn’t comprehend. Flint sighed and waited impatiently for a reason not to commit homicide.

“And we had plenty of extra rum from out last haul,” Silver continued. “So I devised a way for the men to get the fruit into their stomachs without having to suck on tart limes and oranges.”

Flint raised an eyebrow. He studied Silver for a long minute, then said slowly, “You mean to say you spiked their drink with fruit juice?”

Silver bit back a smile and snorted out a laugh.

“When you put it that way…but yes, I did.With Madi’s help and the help of a few others.”

Flint studied him for another long minute, then a smile slowly spread on his lips, eyes turning soft.

“That is the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. Will it even work?”

“It had better work,” said Silver firmly. “Do you know how long it takes to squeeze that much fucking fruit juice into rum bottles?”

anonymous asked:

How would you respond to people who say Bryke is the reason ATLA is great? Like they came with the idea yes, but they aren't writers and the show isn't great because of them.

Here’s the thing:

Bryke are, in fact, part of the reason that Avatar is as great as it is.

But their contributions are very much not to the depth of the show.

You see, what Bryke are good at, and I mean really good at is:

1. Visuals:

They made the initial sketches, character design, creature design, etc.

Aang? Zuko? Katara? Sokka? Bryke’s design. Appa, Momo? Most of the mix ‘n’ match creatures? Bryke. The Blue Spirit? All Bryke.

2.Rule of Cool:

You know what my second favorite episode of the whole show is?

“The Blind Bandit”

You know why?

It’s because those three minutes where Toph lays the smack down are the single coolest three minutes of the whole show.

Bryke are extremely good at ‘Wow!’. They don’t have the skill nor the patience for the “boring”, gradual character development stuff. They like Big, and they like Flashy, and they like it Now.

And when they have someone to reign them in, that makes for some damn fine episodes.

The problems started when they, for some reason, I’m guessing fame and fan praise going to their heads, started believing their own hype. It’s pretty much the same thing that happened with Steven Moffat. He wrote some of the best episodes of Russell T. Davies’ run of Doctor Who. Then he became show-runner and it all went to hell.

I guess that the tl;dr; would be:

Bryke were the Style part of the show. The part that hooks you, and gets you interested in it. The Substance, the reason why you stick around, and why we all remember, and talk about A:tLA more than ten years later, came from Aaron Ehasz and his team of writers.

And honestly? I think it’s time to give credit where credit’s due.

anonymous asked:

i vaguely remember mina and kirishima having any significant interactions throughout the manga, if at all. maybe i wasn't really paying attention to their interactions, but it kinda feels like a last minute decision to have one of them be an important part to the other's backstory. to me it was just a "where did that even come from?" moment. but idk. maybe it's because i never binge read the manga except for the first three volumes (and that was a looong time ago) that i don't remember. oh well

Kirishima and Ashido Throughout the Manga

The databook that came out in April 2016 says that Kirishima and Ashido went to the same middle school, so Horikoshi at least had that planned out over a year in advance. However, besides that, there really isn’t much of a hint that Kirishima and Ashido went to the same middle school. 

They are on the same team for the Cavalry Battle. However, they don’t interact directly to each other or show any indications of knowing each other that well.

These are all the interactions I could find of them in the manga before chapter 144. 

None of their interactions indicate anything special. Neither seems particularly close with the other. Neither seems uncomfortable around the other. They don’t say anything interesting to each other. They don’t look at each other strangely or stand next to each other a lot. They seem okay with each other and are able to have friendly exchanges, but nothing meaningful is shown between the two of them. This seems to indicate they didn’t have much of a relationship in middle school. In fact, they may not have had much of relationship in middle school at all since Kirishima didn’t even know who Ashido was until his last year in middle school and his friends had to explain who she was to him, and Ashido showed no signs of knowing Kirishima in chapter 144. 

Since they barely had a relationship in middle school, possibly never even interacting at all, then their very casual and lack of interactions in the manga make since. It would be nice if there was at least some sort of hint in the manga that they went to the same middle school, but oh well. It makes me wonder what part two of Kirishima’s flashback will be like. I wouldn’t be surprised if Kirishima keeps his envy towards Ashido to himself and then hardly or never speaks to her. But who knows?

anonymous asked:

You know, I don't think people remember this episode but there was one where this alien came down to Earth and was very racist towards Star (due to her being from Tameran). I remember Cyborg noticed and then told Robin and he got PISSED (like he wanted to murder the dude). But Star, not wanting to go that far, handled it in her own way and Robin respected that (he even asked what she wanted to do/ if she wanted him to help/ KEPT DEFENDING HER OVER AND OVER AND EVEN MADE THE DUDE LEAVE!)

Oh we remember it.

Such a good episode.  Much RobStar.  Very pure.

Robin was just disgusted when he found out how Val-Yor was treating Starfire and she didn’t want to tell him precisely because she knew he’d want to beat the guy up and defend her honor.

He loves her so much aaaah.

(´ q ` ” ) = The character’s “guilty” pleasure

I have to say music is her guilty pleasure.

I mentioned before she can sing, but she only sings before a black-feathered audience. Svan has longed to see opera and orchestra performances, but given her commoner status the extravagant music halls of Ishgard were only opened to the finest citizen…and low borns were not considered the finest, or even citizens.

“Let’s play a game,” Louise announced suddenly. The low hum of conversation in the room came to an abrupt halt, and the air almost stilled as everyone’s head swung towards the woman who had spoken.

“What game?” a voice piped up. It was Tyler.

“I don’t remember what it’s called,” Louise confessed, looking sheepish. “But I do know that rules so -”

“Just explain it,” Connor said, waving her on. Louise beamed.

“Okay, so. Everyone stays in their spot in the room, and then someone - in this case me - turns out the lights. You find the closest person to you and you have to kiss them, until I give the warning and then you go back to your spot and I turn the lights back on.”

anonymous asked:

I don't know where it came from, but this fandom is fond of time travel aus, so I imagined that if Yuuri retired after ch 13 or something else kept them apart, Yuuri is given a chance to travel back into one day of his past and change it. Not physically, but just his consciousness replaces his past self's for that time. However, his past self won't remember any of the things he did differently and he must not let anyone know. Therefore, his changes can't be too dramatic. What day does he pick?

He goes back to the day he slept with Viktor after the Rostelecom Cup and confesses then. He wouldn’t go all the way back to the beginning and not meet Viktor to avoid their first meeting because A) he wouldn’t risk he and Viktor never meeting and changing that might stop him ever getting good enough to compete against Viktor (it wouldn’t as we all know but he would be worried that it would). He would go back to the week when he was at his most happy and tell Viktor he loved him and then let whatever happened happen. Because if he retired after chapter 13 he would be lonely and miss Viktor and after years that week would be his fondest memory

anonymous asked:

reflecting on the other seasons that clearly didn't get the same advisement and outside help, can you imagine s3 without all the experts who said they panicked and stepped in when they heard about isak's season? good lord lmao. i don't mean to undercut julie in any way but sometimes i wonder if we give her too much of the credit. there's a clear discrepancy between the way queer issues are treated in s3 to 1 2 and even 4.

How did you know I’ve wanted to talk about this, anon? Caveat: I can’t remember where the idea came from that people “stepped in”, I don’t want to assume to know what happened there especially without reading(/rereading) a source. 

That said, something I’ve been thinking about for a while is that her writing process may be pretty dependent on the sources she’s pulling from and getting plenty of research and development time to brew them into a story. If she gets a really good idea and taps interesting sources, she great at putting it all down and figuring how to turn that into a season of television. What makes the show so strong is when she gets into the psychological underpinings of the character; we’ve heard before that she did so much research for the roots of the show when establishing the characters and the concerns of teenagers for s1. I have felt for a long time that the sources behind s3 in particular deserve more credit because it wasn’t something she was familiar with (whereas she was a teenage girl growing in Norway once, even if it was another era) and she must have pulled pretty directly from what they said about the pressures of being a gay teen and let them shape the characters too. It led to a great result; I think it’s for the benefit of the work that she lifted the coming out scene between Isak and Jonas from a real experience, for example. The power of that scene is due to the truth of the source material but also to her integration and writing of it.

Looking at s2… I think it’s the story closest to her which might be part of why it isn’t as strong? It might be that this season required less pulling back because it’s the story she always felt she knew and wanted to tell. From what I understand, she’s pulled from real people in her life for a number of characters and she says she identifies with all the characters equally but with Noora… I do think there is a bias there. Which you really saw evidenced later by the unnecessary glut of Noora and Noorhelm hijacking so much of the last ‘real’ episode in s4, imho. Season two is at its best for me when its dealing with its biggest and most serious issues, which I would think required outside consideration and research based on the real experiences of women who lived this. Though I ultimately think s2 doesn’t work for me based on the story it chose to tell with Noora and William which doesn’t really have to do with the process.

Then with s4, we know that it was decided relatively last minute that this was the last season and there was clearly a lot going on behind-the-scenes. She was juggling a lot of concerns and it appears her research and development process was interrupted and curtailed this time. She wound up pulling from a very limited Muslim experience, I got the feeling that Julie Andem saw what that small circle of “shameless” Muslim girls were saying and wrote only from that. It’s not that they didn’t have a valid perspective but the picture painted from it wasn’t a very full story. I don’t think she ever really figured out how to integrate a wider perspective: it started off strong in the first ep (the subtle way she was othered and that first use of prayer as a visual motif) but as time went on, there was a lack of detail when it comes to faith in Sana’s home and daily life (I don’t want to pretend to be an authority, see this post for more). Religion didn’t need to be the focus of her season but to be honest, I expected better for both how it would be addressed and how it would subtly be shown in the background. I’m still taken aback by the lack of lead in to Ramadan and how negative the stereotypes presented by the entitled Ramadan clip were (as well as the numerous implications caused and let sit with the fight). I think s4 shows the pitfalls of what could have happened to s3 without the time to consider and integrate the minority perspectives that the author just doesn’t have.

I don’t like to go too far in either direction though? I feel like this is a case where sometimes people want to discredit someone for the good things just because they also showed some serious flaws. Ultimately, I think she’s largely responsible for both. It can be hard to reconcile but she did have a heavy hand in creating both s3 and s4, both s1 and s2: she created, wrote and directed and all the actors and fellow crew talk about her perfectionism and meticulous dedication to this project. I just sometimes think that’s for both good and for ill. I think you can see a lack of the same awareness and sensitivity to queer issues in s1, s2, and s4 when s3 delivered in spades and I agree that’s because she only had advisement during that one season. Without that, there can be some not-great attitudes perpetuated incidentally which I think can be said of various things in the course of Skam (e.g. mental illness in s4). For example, I got the feeling she had more personal experience with knowing gay men and so wrote to that, without really considering that the work was ending with a variety of mlm and no wlw at all. (I’ve personally been pretty uncertain whether or not Vilde was intentionally coded to be a lesbian, which would significantly change how I view scenes overall, but in the work we definitely never got there.) I think Julie Andem cares about presenting important issues and tries to do her homework but she does bring a lot of her own experience and viewpoint to the show. To me, there’s been times when Skam has truly rubbed me the wrong way because I feel like the characters are presenting an agenda, that they become mouthpieces of their writer and occasionally come off defensive. 

We’ve seen Julie Andem’s writing soar when she gets a spark of an idea and spends the next number of months interviewing and researching and consulting and letting it germinate. But I think she needs that spark, she needs that time to gather those outside sources and pull them together into a work. I think the times Skam has fallen down has been when she least knows where she’s going, which comes down to both vision and preparation. But I also think there’s way more variables: there’s isn’t any one reason a season worked or didn’t work, there were many either way.
