i loved this monologue

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 (Of course, I rescinded this thought after I remembered he was near-sighted.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.

  • everyone else: Fuck Tom Nook what a crook !
  • me: Only 298,000 bells to add a second story to my house ?? Wow that's a good price for installing an entire floor, AND Nook does it in one night !
  • everyone else: He charges so much for just a simple house !
  • me: I sure am glad Nook lets you take as long as you need to pay off your loan. He doesn't even charge interest rates !

Monologue assignment from 1st year of TAW with a grumpy Wirt (Over the Garden Wall) I just now tied down and colored. AND the monologue is Martin from my favourite BBC radio sitcom Cabin Pressure <3 

We had lovely Sarah Airriess - aka @tealin - as our teacher this time, and being a fangirl herself she had selected this as one of the clips we could choose… So of course I had to take it. 

(Also, I have rarely fangirled more than when she did an animation demo of Arthur from the show… *sigh*. It was amazing.)

“I think about you a lot,” she told him. “Every now and then, you’ll cross my mind, and I just can’t seem to shake the thought of it all… I let go of something that had so much potential to be so beautiful. Just like that.”

His heart started thudding so loud that it echoed in his ears. “You can’t say this to me here,” he said. “Not now. Not after all this time.”

She looked down, embarrassed. “It’s selfish of me to say, I know.” She looked up and met his eyes. “But you were so sweet to me. So kind. And I let the thought of missing someone else drive me away from you.”

He shook his head. “You weren’t ready for love again,” he told her. “Don’t blame yourself for the scars that someone else left on you. It was never your fault that you couldn’t be with me, it was the reminisce of him, still holding you back. Just when you were ready to jump in, he would pull you back. And that was no one’s fault but his.”

She watched him closely as he comforted her. He was always so good at soothing her broken heart — something that was never his job to do, but he did it anyway. “It could’ve been us, you know,” she said quietly. “You and me against the world. And I’m just sorry that it didn’t work out like that.”

Then, in the corner of her eye, she could see his fiancé returning with their drinks. She turned to leave him, but before she did, she heard him say it. It was soft and hidden under his breath, but it was there.

“Sometimes, I am, too.”

how you get six books into Rivers of London and not realise that essays on the police system are an essential part of the whole thing I genuinely do not understand 

things chris has done for me:

- napped w me on a stranger’s couch when I got blackout drunk at a halloween party

- said “you’re right I should think about you and your feelings more” after I exploded at him and basically said fuck you to him over a small thing

- buys me tea all the time

- tells me I’m beautiful all the time

- let me eat the rest of his spicy cheeto covered pizza (which is rly good btw)

- literally never gets mad at me and my mood swings

- is the best big spoon I’ve ever dealt w

- once serenaded me w the metal gear rising ost on guitar

a few of my favorite things about the “chance of failure” scene in Rogue One:

  • Kay throwing out percentages like it’s no big deal
  • how done Cassian is
  • when Bodhi, very politely, tells kay that he doesn’t want to know the chance of failure
  • “I understand”
  • when the ship hits a mountain and Bodhi falls backwards… like… same
  • everybody’s hapless yelling
  • kay’s eyes when they hit the mountain
