I was re-watching Yuri!!! on Ice, when I began being curious if the ending instagram posts have captions. I dont know if someone already pointed this out, but Im still shook. I mean..
This was just a normal caption of Viktor Nikiforov, when suddenly..
LIKE REALLY, WHAT
WHAT DOES HE MEANT BY THIS?!!!!
IT WONT MAKE SENSE IF HE WOULD JUST WRITE THAT CAPTION JUST BECAUSE HE FELT LIKE IT. HE WROTE THAT BECAUSE HE STILL REMEMBERS THE TIME YUURI GOT DRUNK. THE TIME HE BEGAN TO NOTICE THIS BOY. THE TIME FROM THAT MOMENT HE WAS JUST CURIOUS TO THE DAY HE’S ACTUALLY NEXT TO HIM. IT FELT UNREAL. IT WAS SO LONG YET FELT SO FAST. TO VIKTOR, IT ONLY TOOK A SPLIT SECOND TO REALIZE WHY HE WAS PRACTICING AND COMPETING ALL THOSE YEARS. IT WAS TO MEET THIS VERY MAN IN FRONT OF HIM. (Im sorry, I made it sound so emotional. lol)
THE THING IS!!! THEY WERE ALREADY HINTING ABOUT EP 10′S ENDING SCENE WAY FROM EPISODE ONE. WHY HAVEN’T I NOTICED THIS?!
i finally got hearing aids today after years of waiting and realized i can kind of hear voices now! i’ve never really heard yuri!!! on ice before and i am so beyond excited!!!!! so here are my thoughts after hearing the subbed yoi episode 1 for the first time (written as I watched)
the opening sound of victor’s skates with the piano is the literally the most beautiful thing i’ve ever heard
THE THEME SONG. THE THEME SONG!!!!! I had never heard the marimba/xylophone (hard to distinguish) in the beginning before, also the words are so pure? Like??? YES I AM BORN TO MAKE HISTORY how motivating it sounds like a good running song.
yuri’s voice sounds EXACTLY like he looks. like, he sounds like this gif:
yuuri katsuki sounds like an angel and i want to protect him a thousand percent more after hearing his sweet voice what a babe
victor is a big, sweet dork, and i always imagined his voice to be deeper but like…he sounds so warm and fuzzy and it is so cute i love him (although based on what i’m hearing i think i’m pronouncing his name wrong in my head)
STAMMI VICINO IS SO BEAUTIFUL. I can’t make out the words at all but the melody is so gorgeous-I’d never been able to make it out before (tbh I actually thought it was sung by a soprano oops)
oh my god hearing the skates is so…amazing? i can’t even describe it, but i had forgotten that sound because I haven’t skated since I was a kid, so hearing it again is really strange and incredible and is giving me so many emotions.
MAKKACHIN HAS SUCH A DEEP BARK WHAT
The way yuuri says “vicchan” is the cutest thing i’ve ever heard in my life
HAHAHAHA THE SOUND IT MAKES WHEN VICTOR HOLDS OUT HIS HAND SOUNDS LIKE HOW GLITTER LOOKS
tl;dr: Yuri!!! On Ice sounds just as amazing as it looks and even though I can’t perfectly hear everything, I can pick up so much more with these hearing aids and I just…I am so in love?? I am crying, it’s like watching my dreams come to life on screen
I’ve noticed a trend in a lot of MEA discussions that really bothers me. (Yes there was a recent post that led to this one, but it was by far not the first, just the one that finally prompted me to say something.)
Sexless relationships =/= ace relationships
Please please please stop saying “ace” when you mean “sexless.”
Not only is asexuality an umbrella term as well as a standalone identity (which covers other identities such as demisexuality and gray-asexuality, where sexual attraction is experienced rarely or only under specific situations), behavior has nothing to do with and in no way defines orientation. Someone who feels no sexual attraction to other people can still have, want, and enjoy sex.
Instead that gets into how individual people feel about sex. Some language commonly used in ace circles (but not only applicable to people who are ace) are sex-adverse/repulsed, sex-indifferent, and sex-favorable (occasionally “sex-positive” is used but that tends to cause confusion between personally wanting/being okay with sex and the overall “sex positive” movement).
Sorry if this is getting a little too “asexuality 101.″ My main problem with the way “ace relationships” has been used lately is that the moment its discovered that there will be a sex scene (and usually an implied sexual relationship past what the game shows) with a companion, people write off that they and their relationship cannot be ace. Which is fundamentally untrue.
While I would kill for more relationships without sex scenes or the simple ability to skip those scenes for any/all characters, that is not what makes them ace. That idea just adds more fuel to the “gold star ace” (never has sex, never wants sex, never gets aroused, never masturbates, etcetcetc) fire that the general ace community has been fighting to stop for a really long time.
Even just talking about ace characters and the potential for canon ace characters is a massive step forward, and I’m so grateful for that. But we have to stop stuff like this early, especially when it might be the first or only mention of asexuality that some people see. I’ve read stories from and talked to so many people that thought they couldn’t be ace because they didn’t fit that gold star standard and its heartbreaking. And I just can’t stand the thought of that idea being unknowingly perpetuated, especially in a fandom I feel so close to.
So I am just listening to Tae’s playlist and I saw this song was on there… I am in tears right now…
I’ve been listening to this song a lot and this band because I’ve been going through a lot… reasons why I haven’t been on tumblr very much because I’ve had to put things aside and put more important things first
For me I am very strong in my faith and just knowing that V listens to this brings me so much joy…
does the fact that john and paul loved each other ever just.. hit you? like these were two lads from liverpool, they learned guitar together, they wrote together, they had all of these incredible experiences, they traveled, they had a totally unique and extraordinary life together, they shared that with each other. they grew as people, as friends, as lovers, competitors, muses. they turned each other on. and we know such a tiny fragment. we are privy to a tiny part. i am so happy they had each other. i am so happy they had one another.
*rolls over in bed to grab and answer her ringing mobile* Hello? This is Dr. Molly Hooper.
Molly, it's me. I'm using a different phone.
*sighs heavily* Right, what now?
I just need you to do something very easy for me.
*clenches her jaw* Are you trying to be funny, Sherlock? When you said that earlier today there was nothing easy about it.
Yes, but now I mean it. Because all I need you to do now is listen. Can you do that?
Good. *exhales* You count to me, Molly, so very much. And I trust you. I trust you with my work, with my secrets, and with my very life. You matter more than most of the other people that inhabit this entire planet. You are unique, intelligent, brave, and puzzling to me in the best sort of way. And you're beautiful; so very beautiful in every way a person can be. And...I love you, Molly...I love you.
Y-yes I'm here.
*her voice unsteady* And...was that it?
Yes, that was all I needed you to do.
Wait! Sherlock, can you do something for me now?
*pauses* Come to my flat please.
Yes, now please. Because...I'm not saying it over the phone this time.
If there’s a thing Katsuki Yuuri is really, intimately used to, that must be falling. He’s been doing just that all his life, has learned the pains and the joy of a well executed fall, has been drilled on which way to turn and how to get up. He’s prepared to rise again, every time, higher and higher, tumbling down a step just to climb two.
They say the higher you fly, the harder you fall. Failures are recognizable, merciless, because they’re messy and big, always more easily remembered than success.
By this line of reasoning, you’d think spectacular falls would also make a great noise. And sometimes, they do. But not here, not now: that’s the irony of the unforgiving ice. No matter how hard you fall, the sound of your skin scraping against the cold surface is ridiculously faint. A hollow thud, and that’s it.
No matter if you ruined your whole life or just gained a new painful bruise for your already complete collection, the noise will be the same, measly and inconspicuous. Because the real sound is the one you make, grunting or screaming or crying, and the ice doesn’t ever want to steal the spotlight.
