i really like this scene okay

I’m so fucking angry about ace representation and non-representation that I can’t not be rude about it tonight, and there’s specific examples that get me real mad atm that I need to share :

Sense 8 : so okay, for a show that is really awesome and inclusive, a scene got me real upset. Sex positivity isn’t only about beeing free to have sex whenever and however you want as long as there’s consent with all parties, it’s also about the freedom to not want it. So when Kala goes to Sun and Sun gives her a nice declaration about how sex is something sacred to be worshiped, I’m like this is bullshit, okay ? If you don’t want it, you don’t fucking want it dammit. It’s a real awesome sentiment behind the words for most people, but thank you for leaving out the rest of us.

Riverdale : so okay, I got into Riverdale recently and I was so freaking happy when I heard that my fav character was canonly ace in the comics !
And then ! I saw the loads of fanfics (I didn’t do the math but damn that’s got to be more than 50 %) with non-ace Jug. And that’s…it makes me angry but okay, you’re free to do what you want, even if it’s heartbreaking when you’re already an identity that’s erased from basically everything.
But what really got me angry is seeing that people said he couldn’t be canonically ace in the show. Why ? Because he kissed Betty…
Get your fact straight before writing this kind of bullshit because it’s hurtful, people ; asexuality doesn’t mean lack of romantic relationship/attraction, that’s being aromantic ! And I bet all ace, aro and acearo people are as tired as me at being mixed up all the damn fucking time !
Plus, I don’t know as much about aromantism that I know about asexuality (unfortunately), but if having sex doesn’t take away your ace identity, I think kissing someone doesn’t take away your aro identity (someone aro could correct me if I’m wrong ?).

Last thing in this rant, I read a soulmate AU fanfic with an asexual character once, I’m not saying which fandom because I’m betting there’s more than one like this one anyway. You know what got to me ? The fact that ace people in this couldn’t have a goddamn soulmate !
I don’t personally believe in soulmates so the idea that those ones could choose their own partner (as long as they were ace too, of course, seeing as the other ones /already had soulmates/), but on behalf of all the ace/aro people that do : that is utter bullshit !
You can have a soulmate without wanting to fuck them ! You can have a soulmate without wanting a romantic relationship with them !
If I believed in this idea, I would be ready to say I’ve found mine, and you know what ? It’s my best friend !
So get fucking lost, all of you, with your ideas that kissing means you’re not ace. That sex is the ultimate kind of love. That you can’t be in a relationship without sex. That you can’t have a soulmate without sex.
We’re a spectrum for god’s sake ! And we’re not incapable of love in a non-platonic way. Thanks you so much for ingraining in us the idea that no one will want us because of what we feel or don’t feel.


Edit: if anyone else wants to say that Kala isn’t ace, here is my answer on the fact it wasn’t what I was saying in this post -> x

Fic: Where Angels Fear to Tread (Ao3 Link)
Fandom: Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow
Pairing: Mick Rory/Leonard Snart
Series: Aflameverse

Summary: Leonard Snart had a very tough childhood, and now he likes to murder people. Is that really so wrong?

Okay, maybe it is, but that hasn’t stopped him yet.

(serial killer Len)

WARNING: graphic violence, people die, main characters die, one small adult-rated scene

A/N: this is my ‘murder murder murder GOOSE’ fic that I’ve spoken about. This fic was written to be the inverse of my “Aflame” story. Len has a very different approach to serial-killer-ing than Mick does.

====================================================

They say childhood memories fade in time, but there are some moments in his childhood that Len remembers with perfect, crystal clarity.

—————————————————————–

The first: he is six years old. His mother is not well, but she has permitted him to crawl into bed with her for the first time in months. “I will be gone soon,” she says to him, her hand caressing his curling hair. “And no one will watch over you but the angels.”

They do not mention Len’s father.

“The angels?” Len asks. “How will an angel help?” He does not mean to be skeptical, but his father is cold and cruel, ever since he was released from prison too early. Far too early.

“An angel destroyed the first-born of Egypt,” his mother reminds him. “And the armies of Assyria.” Her eyes are distant and sad. “It was an angel that stopped Avraham from sacrificing Itzhak. A father sacrificing his own child, till an angel came to stop him…”

“An angel did all that?”

“Oh, yes, baby. An angel comes to you with a sword of flame, flame and smoke and ash. An angel is destruction, baby; a message from God that some things should not be borne too long.” She sighs. “I bore my pain too long, libi, my heart, and so it destroys me. Don’t let it destroy you.”

It.

She means him, though Len does not know it then.

I just read a post you reblogged and it gave me a light bulb moment. Has there been any meta paralleling/comparing the Ketch/Dean and Kelvin/Cas scenes in 12x14 and 12x15?

Ugh that’s on my gif to do list :P They were making pretty much exactly the same faces while listening to these offers, and I don’t think either of them was buying it. I’ve been meaning to make that post for a few days, actually, although I didn’t really have any long meta point, just, like, look at their unconvinced “okay I’ll hear you out but I’m not buying what you’re selling” faces. 

anonymous asked:

not a gin//t/su shipper here, more i am a little... allergic to that ship. aero, i was wondering if not implied sex scene, how would you interpret that scene? like, what do you think sorachi sensei's motivation was? sorry if it's annoying to get lots of asks about it, it made my stomach sink a bit to think of such an implication written in now :c

It’s okay, I don’t mind. There really wasn’t any subtext in that scene. If people are going to over-read into those scenes and make them out to be more than they are and ruin them with making them shippy, then the scene with Otae and Gintoki is 10x more profound than the one with Tsukuyo. Sarutobi also got her own scene and so if people are going to read into things that aren’t there, then Gintoki/Otae, Gintoki/Tsukuyo, and Gintoki/Sarutobi all had shippy subtext to them in the chapter. Gintoki and Otae even looked like an actual family, so, voila. 

Gintama is coming to an end. Sorachi’s motivation rests in giving the characters a little panel time before he wraps everything up completely. Ships have not been a focus for Sorachi at all and so far, he hasn’t hinted at anything super shippy. It’s not his fault shippers are turning scenes into something they aren’t and to let an “implication” some random fans made up shouldn’t make your stomach sink. I mean, there are people that think Gintoki and Kagura are going to be the end pairing ((links: here and here – if you don’t believe me)). 

If Sorachi wants to pair Gintoki up with someone in the end, that’s his right and he can do whatever he damn well pleases. Until then, don’t let the irrational babbling of shippers bother you.

anonymous asked:

The thing that's bothering me the most is why would you want to upstage your boyfriend on his huge day? Let Louis have one freaking day for himself fgs! He hasn't had a good thing that's happened to him in ages!

I don’t know, I have no clue. And before people come at me saying that things are happening behind the scenes and schedules will clearly overlap…mhmmm like no, he had been ghost on social media for months and he/his team would have known that louis was gonna perform tonight, so really, this could’ve waited another day or do those people want to tell me that louis would be okay with getting less attention because harry (and liam) thought it might be a good time to share news with the world? Please.

me: i know destiel isn’t ever going to become canon. jensen has said it on multiple occasions, they’ve all said that wasn’t a storyline they were going to go down, and i understand this and am now going to move on

a man and his kitten

okay so the refusal to kiss the silver medal scene is really cool because is a throwback to how they each “met” each other. 

first is viktor all up in yuuri’s space. he really wants to kiss yuuri, because they clearly have a physical relationship, but yuuri is not into it at the moment (i wanted them to kiss too, but like, they’re surrounded by people who are staring at them). so viktor gets no kiss.

anyway, it is a direct throwback to this: 

where viktor is in yuuri’s space because he is under the impression that there’s mutual interest, clearly about to kiss him, and then yuuri scuttles backwards into the wall. it takes months of trust building after that for yuuri to let viktor touch him without nearly dying. 

but at the grand prix final something kind of surprising happens, and oh man, it made me so happy. yuuri turns the tables, pushes viktor back, puts his arms around his neck, and makes a request of him.

you know, like this:

the best part are the reactions though. the first time yuuri asks something of viktor, we get this, blushy, breathy sign that viktor is kinda smitten:

the second time? holy fuck. only tiger sweatshirts have elicited this sort of passion in this show. viktor’s never been this excited about anything.

the time limits for this episode were drastic, and i think a confirmed second season also kind of twisted things around a bit plotwise. but even though i kind of wanted them to retire, the juxtaposition in this scene was perfect.

i love it, and i want viktor to make that face every day (and also never again because it’s terrifying)

edit: okay so the ending did not mean the second season was confirmed (who knew) and apparently the ending was planned all along (side eyes episode ten) but i stand by the rest of this post.

Reading the Cursed Child

me: oh my god. they’re meeting on the train. this is perfect… oh my god. they’re hugging now. i am so here for a potter/malfoy friendship… okay, so like, i mean i guess they’re just like really close friends?… i feel like i’ve never hugged my guy friends this much… hold up… “you make me stronger.” this feels pretty gay dude… “you two- you belong together.” oh. my. god. they’re not friends, they’re fucking boyfriends. <3 i can’t wait for them to tie it up in a sweet scene in the end making it canon…wait.what’s happeni- no, wait. WAIT.

Yuri on Ice interview with Kubo Mitsurou - A summary

Alright, so it wasn’t exactly an interview, it was the last episode official YOI web radio called Yuri on Radio, which you can listen to here. (Unless the videos get deleted which happens quite a lot, but it’s still there at the time of writing). Regardless of what you want to call it, it featured a few questions to Kubo (who, as you know, is the author of the story to YOI) and her answers and I’d like to deliver them to you.

Note: This is only a rough translation, not a word for word translation, though it should hopefully convey the most relevant information. Feel free to correct me if you think I got something wrong!

With that out of the way, let’s dive into the most important/interesting questions and answers.

Okay, so this first bit isn’t really a question, but more of a fun fact from behind the scenes but let me keep the format similar to the rest of the post:

The seiyuu received manga drafts from Kubo to use as references before recording sessions to better understand the characters. At first they were around 70 pages long (around the first episode) but by the last episode, there were about 120-130 pages of manga dedicated to each episode. The manga drafts were essentially drafts for the episodes and Kubo and Yamamoto had to carefully select the content they wanted to include in the anime because unfortunately there was too much she wanted to show in just 23 minutes per episode. Kubo said that it was a difficult choice because there were many scenes that she wanted to be animated but a number of them had to be thrown away and never used in the anime.

[I know that some people will ask so let me say: I doubt that the manga draft they made for references will ever be fully published. I’m assuming it wasn’t a proper manga and more like sketches with speech bubbles that look nothing like the neat little volumes you may usually purchase. It wasn’t meant to be beautiful, only useful to the seiyuu and it was a way of presenting stories with which Kubo was most comfortable and which she found the easiest to create.]

How close is Kubo with Yamamoto (the director) and how long have they known each other?

They haven’t known each other very long; Yamamoto approached her in the Summer of 2014, asking whether she would like to write a story for a figure skating anime. In the Summer of 2015 they met practically every day in Kubo’s place to create the story and often ended up cooking and eating together (she explained it by saying that they got so excited over writing it that it made them hungry lol). Kubo also highlighted that Yamamoto has great love for anime and for figure skating and she was glad to work with her and create Yuri on Ice with Yamamoto’s advice and her help in terms of details.

Why was Hasetsu (based on Karatsu in Saga, Kyushu) chosen as Yuuri’s hometown?

There are few famous figure skaters from Kyushu and Kubo wanted to show such unlikely origins for a famous skater for a change, and also wanted to present Yuuri as the ‘hope of the region’. She also hoped to make it a generic town where you could find anywhere (which would make it relatable and easy to picture for many viewers). She also thought that making it into a town located around a castle would leave a good impression (and would look nice to foreigners watching the show). So they searched the region and finally chose Karatsu as the perfect basis for creating Hasetsu. Up till now Karatsu wasn’t a famous travel location (being rather old and small and offering nothing special in particular), but it seems that the anime is already inviting more tourists to the city (which apparently was also what they hoped for).

Who was the easiest character to draw?

Kubo didn’t hesitate to say that it was JJ. She felt like she knew exactly how he would look and act so putting it down on paper was essentially simple. She said that Yurio was also quite easy to draw.

Now what’s interesting is that Kubo said that Yurio was the first character she came up with but they decided that they couldn’t make him the main character because “he couldn’t pull the story along”. He didn’t have any clear weaknesses the way Yuuri did, he didn’t have the desire to get involved with others or the predisposition to interact with other people the way Yuuri did, and they realized that the story progressed and developed much better when they paired Victor and Yuuri and the narrative began partly depending on them. She said that Yuri on Ice became what it was thanks to the decision to focus on Yuuri instead of Yurio (because they couldn’t find a good way to move the story forward with Yurio as the MC). She also said that Yurio was more of a tragic character and if he was the main character then the anime would become a sad story and they wanted to prevent that. They preferred to make it into a story overflowing with love. They chose not to speak about Yurio’s family in the anime in order not to give him a handicap and instead showed his relationships with many people who would support and help him in the future. She also said she wished she could show more of Yurio and Otabek’s friendship and she had a few scenes in mind but in the last episodes she had to cut out all of the lines that weren’t absolutely necessary. She said that she actually wanted to include many more scenes for many of the characters but it was a story about Yuuri Katsuki after all and she wanted to prioritize it in the end.

That’s about that for the relevant information, although they did mention the big seiyuu event featuring Kubo that will take place on April 29th, 2017, and, I presume, will also include some announcement regarding the second season.

I hope you found this post informative! Thanks for reading!

She deserved better. And I would’ve done anything to give it to her.

“you win if there’s a change in hyungsik’s face” ; part.1 ailee vers.
{ivy vers.}

Let’s take some time to analyze this small bit from the episode 10 preview

Not sure if it’s been done already. You guys are hella fast when it comes to analyzing scenes holy wow.

So at the end of the preview for episode 10, we see Yuri and Viktor standing/sitting/whatever face to face, right? Okay, so what I noticed, is that Yuri, at first, is staring down.

Then he blinks and looks up at Viktor. In my opinion, his facial expression makes it look as if he’s surprised. Not in a shocked way, but more like in a shy way, if that makes sense?

He’s blushing harder than we’ve ever seen him blush, too.

Then we see Viktor. Viktor has a really gentle and adoring expression on his face. He, just like Yuri, is also looking down, and still looking down by the time Yuri has focused his own eyes on Viktor’s face. 

So what I’m thinking, is that Viktor gave Yuri something. A present, perhaps. Because in the voiceover, Viktor was talking about Christmas presents. Yuri’s birthday is also coming up. So maybe a Christmas present or birthday present.

Looking at their faces, this isn’t just an ordinary present. It’s not some fancy piece of clothing, it’s not katsudon, and it sure as heck is not a pair of socks or an ugly Christmas sweater. I’m thinking it’s something much more intimate. Like a ring.

Or maybe it’s not just a simple Christmas or Birthday present. Maybe it’s a love confession. But if it were, then what could the two be staring down at? Maybe Viktor is holding Yuri’s hands while confessing?

Still, the movements and body language are rather giving me the idea that Viktor is slipping a ring around Yuri’s finger. Realistically, this seems a bit early to be an actual marriage proposal. I mean, it’s totally possible! But despite the whole proposal talk in ep. 9, I’m not sure if their relationship is already at the point where a marriage proposal is the obvious next step. I wouldn’t mind those two getting married already tho lel 

Maybe it’s a love confession where Viktor gives Yuri a ring or something as a token of their relationship/love? Not quite like an engagement ring. but more like a ‘this ring will show everyone that we belong to one another’ kinda ring? 

Or maybe they’re just talking about a touchy subject and Viktor is too shy/embarassed to look at Yuri, but Yuri feels brave enough to look up at Viktor. Viktor hasen’t ever really shown his vulnerable side towards Yuri, not in the anime at least. So this makes sense imo. Maybe all this is just me doing some good old wishful thinking.

But whatever is happening in that preview, we know it’s gonna be good anyway. I mean c’mon, that body language, THOSE FACIAL EXPRESSIONS.

I can’t wait ‘till next week.
