i waited a year to watch this

Waiting and Watching and Believing

Sometimes things are not as they first appear in life or in this fandom. We have seen it time and again.  Something happens and we think one thing and then a few days later, something else happens which changes our perspective.  I do not put much stock in photos, people and/or narratives that materialize from unknown sources for unknown reasons.  I prefer to take my cues from Sam and Cait.

Over the past three years, Sam and Cait have shown a special connection, one filled with a love, respect and admiration that I believe exceeds that of very close friends/colleagues. I could catalogue the list of reasons I think they are together, but others have done so previously and I do not want to go on for pages.  If I only reflect back over the past six months - to the WCC campaign, Caitriona’s birthday tweets, Sam’s forehead in Paris, checking the baws photo, supporting each others’ charities, the ECCC announcement video, the Golden Globes Twitterfest, the Trainspotting 2 premiere, the People’s Choice Awards thank you video and Q&A video, the behind the scenes photos - wow, that is quite a list.

Here are two other reasons I continue to believe in Sam and Cait:

  • their integrity and decency as human beings, as attested to by many who know them, have worked with them or have met them in real life and
  • the sheer joy they show when in each other’s presence.

In my opinion, you can’t fake integrity or joy. And so, I wait and watch and believe.  There is always more to the story.

koichi's actor probably convinces everyone to pitch in and buy a nice dinner for the special effects team. kira's probably plenty happy to help and pitch in because the Magic Hair Scene has provided him humor for years to come, and everyone else is probably still amazed at how realistic those darn hands are.

but also how many takes would that “youve got a nice watch” scene take. jotaro can’t keep a straight face. kira cant either. koichi probably giggles from off screen and ruins the take, too            

“Nice watch–wait…What was the line again?”

“N–nice watch, too bad you won’t be able to s…s..”

“BREAK YOUR FACE THAT IS”

“Hey, hey, I haven’t even gotten there yet…”

“BwaaaHAHAHAAA–”

100 FOR CURLY, PLEASEEE

“Kiss me? For good luck?” – “You don’t believe in luck.” – “No, but I want you to kiss me.”

You could see Reggie Williams from across the lot. He was surrounded by eight other River Kings, and the bottle of Jack glinted in the streetlight as they passed it around. Beside you, Tim sat on the hood of his car and watched them closely, waiting for the moment Reggie gave in and took a sip. The two of you knew it would work in Curly’s favor, because Reggie’s big for a 19 year old, standing at 6′3″ and weighing well over 200 pounds. He was a force to reckon with, and you mentally cursed Curly for being dumb enough to even think about lifting his hubs.

Five minutes later you hear Tim mumble a quiet “fuck”, and the two of you watch as the Kings toss the empty bottle behind a tree, Reggie walking away free of one sip.

You glance quickly at Tim, who had his fists clenched in his lap, and then to Curly. He sat with Danny, and you watch with a small smile as he breaks into an easy laugh, not even thinking about the upcoming fight as he punches his friend in the arm before meeting your gaze.

He knows you’re worried, knows you’re against the fight, but you know there’s no talking him out of something Tim tells him to do. And it’s not that he’s a bad fighter; he’s been taking guys on since before he was thirteen, but he’s not Reggie.

Curly had just turned eighteen. His muscles, although defined, were hidden under his slim structure. Where Reggie’s strength was his punch, Curly’s was his swiftness. He could see a fist coming before they lifted it, and could counteract it just as quick. He fought fair, Tim raised him to, but you knew he always kept his switch in his back pocket.

You were thankful for that, at least, remembering the time one King beat a kid from the Tiber Street Tigers with a chain. That fight was supposed to be clean, too, fists only. The kid ended up in the hospital for three months.

You cursed Tim for agreeing to the fight.

Heart beats fast
Colors and promises
How to be brave
How can I love when I’m afraid to fall
But watching you stand alone
All of my doubt, suddenly goes away somehow

One step closer

I have died everyday, waiting for you
Darling, don’t be afraid, I have loved you for a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

Time stands still
Beauty in all she is
I will be brave
I will not let anything, take away
What’s standing in front of me
Every breath, every hour has come to this

One step closer

I have died everyday, waiting for you
Darling, don’t be afraid, I have loved you for a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

And all along I believed, I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me, I have loved you for a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

One step closer
One step closer

I have died everyday, waiting for you
Darling, don’t be afraid, I have loved you for a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

And all along I believed, I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me, I have loved you for a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

anonymous asked:

Excuse me, do you know if there's any way someone in South America can watch the first live?

Unfortunately, your options are limited to the following:

  1. Travel to Japan or a country that has a Live Viewing to watch the concert.
  2. Wait for the Blu-ray to come out.

This goes for any region that did not receive a Live Viewing ヽ(゚、。)ノ

My D&D character for the campaign my friends and I started is a paranoid-schizophrenic automaton (construct) with a human soul bound to it. Not to mention 200 years obsolete. Also I guess he’s Warforged, a term I just discovered and think fits him PERFECTLY! I can’t wait to try him out :) It’s also a good way to learn to design robots.

D&D characters are fun! I think I’m gonna start commissions for them in a few weeks. Be watching for that!

Ronin Diaries: Baby Blue Saga

Tonight was my first class as a blue belt and it was pretty surreal. It felt odd not grabbing my tattered white belt that I had drug with me to practice the past 4 years. We arrived early to get a good parking spot and I sat and chilled and watched two people belts drill some smash passes while we waited for the Muay Thai class to clear out. One of the purple belts hand me come over so he could better illustrate the smash pass to the other. 

Class soon circled up and we started going over half guard. We covered the basics and covered a few ways to get to the persons back and other ways to get your hooks in. Afterward, I stayed for 3 rolls and tried my best to start in half guard and to work what we learned. Had a blast and got to land a few of the things we did in class which is always nice. 


  • 8 year old me: *watches movies with characters that are 16* Wow! They’re so grown up! I can’t wait to be like them!
  • *fast forward to 16*
  • life: Okay! You have to learn how to drive, get a job, support yourself, Graduate from school, Don't forget about applying to colleges! Make sure you get a job you like, file taxes, get your own house-!
  • me: *trips* *fumbling through piles of papers* stop- wait! I'm just a kid! I'm not ready for this!!

Okay, so as I’m sure you’ve already heard, Stéphane Lambiel will appear in episode 12 of Yuri on Ice as himself (he’ll be voicing the animated version of himself, how cool is that?)

And just in case you weren’t sure Stéphane Lambiel is sort of a big deal in the figure skating world.

Of course, he’s not Plushenko or Johnny Weir but he was an amazing skater in his time too, which resulted in his becoming the two-time (2005–2006) World Champion, the 2006 Olympic silver medalist, a two-time (2005, 2007) Grand Prix Champion and a nine-time (2001–08, 2010) Swiss national champion.

Not to mention that he’s just a beautiful, beautiful man with equally beautiful performances.

Watch his program to “Don’t Stop The Music” from 2011 and you’ll understand what I mean. (Skating in a suit? Yes, please.)

But wait there’s more!

He retired a few years ago and now works as a coach and a choreographer - this season for Deniss Vasiļjevs.

How is this relevant to the YOI fandom?

You may recall this tweet/picture:

Yep, that’s them.

Not to mention that people (including the staff of the anime) have been saying that they’re the closest to the real life versions of Victor and Yuuri you could find, not on the romantic level, but more in the sense of physical closeness and working together well.

I mean

They have a point.

And shall we talk about their selfies? Both of their twitter accounts are full of their selfies from all sorts of events and trips. (Stephane’s is here, Deniss’s is here).

And that’s just one of them.

Okay, so where am I going with this?

To this last photo, from the recording studio where Stéphane was doing his lines for his character in the anime:

See that blond haired boy in the lower right corner?

Stéphane took Deniss along for the recording session, and I just find it incredibly sweet.

Call out post for Travis Willingham: so supportive???

I just realized we’ve waited a whole year for this date. Magnus first asked out Alec for drinks in 1x05, an ep that aired on Feb 9th, 2016 and we’re finally getting this date in 2x06 on Feb 6th, 2017. Can you believe this?? We legit waited a whole year for them to go on this date?! This is fucking iconic and we fucking made it everyone!!

You know what made me the happiest about this episode? The fact that we didn’t see the bullcrap where Victor makes it in time for Yuuri’s performance.
We didn’t need Victor to be there. We knew. We saw Yuuri work with Yakov (who is a big softie tbh). We saw Yurio and Yuuri have the purest friendship.
But most of all, we saw this. We saw Victor’s love for this man, waiting for him in his home country, with the dog they both love (praise Jesus he is alive), with his hands wide open.
This was the most beautiful episode of anime I have ever seen. I have watched anime for 8 years, and Yuri!!! On Ice beats them all. Every single time.
