please don’t ever laugh at someone at the gym who’s lifting very little amounts of weight, or running only a little bit on the treadmill. don’t make fun of someone for putting a machine at the lowest weight or only bench pressing the bar (it’s already 45 lbs on its own). don’t laugh at the people who are just starting out or who physically can’t do too much weights or running or pull ups or squats or whatever. Everyone has to start somewhere
[AU] the “year” between their first meeting and their reunion
ETA: I’ve been (thankfully) notified that my timeline of events is way off so this is 100% inaccurate. However, it makes for a lovely AU (because who doesn’t like pining!Victor amirite) so I’ll leave it up. Just keep in mind that this does not follow the canon timeline. At all. Thanks, @nika11ama, for clarifying things for me!
I kept asking myself why, if they’d previously met (at the Banquet) and Victor had really fallen in love with Yuuri that day, had he treated him that way in this scene? How could he be so nonchalant in that situation? It didn’t make sense.
But what if Victor had spent the entire year lying to himself? Telling himself over and over that he couldn’t possibly have fallen in love with someone after only a day? Forcing himself not think about Yuuri or web-stalk him. Chastising himself every time he caught himself remembering their danceor, worse, pining.
So a year passes and he thinks he’s golden, thinks that time has finally done its job and eroded his little “crush.” And then he sees Yuuri again and tries to treat him like he pretty much treats everyone else, only it completely backfires on him.
He watches him walk away and tries to convince himself everything’s fine. That he’s fine. That he doesn’t care. And yet he can’t bring himself to tear his eyes away from Yuuri’s back even after the other man is long gone.
And it’s like a floodgate opens. Every wall he built over the past year to keep himself from obsessing over Yuuri collapses and he finds himself incapable of not thinking about him.
And then he sees The Video™…
…and every lie he’s ever made to himself just turns to dust. His defenses are down. He can’t fight it anymore. He doesn’t want to fight it anymore. He’s in love. Has been in love since since the day they met, and maybe it doesn’t make sense but he’s reached a point where he just doesn’t care anymore. He’s going after what he wants, and what he wants is Yuuri.
So when an opportunity presents itself he seizes it and flies to Japan without a second thought or a backwards glance. He’s wasted enough time and has no patience left.
See, he made a promise the first day they met, though not with anything as obvious or empty as words. Yuuri seduced him, and Victor fell, hard, and the traitorous little organ in his chest promised itself to Yuuri without him realizing. It took him an entire year to.
And that’s why Victor, who’s notorious for never remembering–and therefore keeping–the promises he makes, remembers Yuuri’s request an entire year after he made it.
#when will the Original Iwatobi Relay Team come back from the war
I was feeling nostalgic earlier and i skimmed through the high speed manga and i remembered again how much i love my tiny rarepairs, like makorin who are adorable and smiling up there because they were friends and also had fondness for each other.
and also i saw this tiny panel
it’s smol and like… at the back of a Very Important Haruka panel but this made me smile so much because this was the scene before Nagisa went to say “I’m really nervous!” all smiley at Haruka??? this implies that he was more nervous and worried but rin talked to him so he’s kinda more smiley after?? that’s such a cute small detail!!! also rin and nagisa are so touchy, i appreciate my cuddle buddies being on #brand.
I managed half of the first episode before I gave up and read an article that gave me the pertinent information to keep me current on what’s happening in that ‘verse.
I don’t pretend to be an expert, but the “action” in Iron Fist is… laughable. It’s slowed down and simplified so anyone can follow it, but it has the unfortunate effect of making Danny appear like a first level student and everyone else bumbling idiots. So he walks around barefoot and can throw someone against a wall—it’s not hard to do when his opponent can’t even get his gun out of his holster during the thirty seconds of Danny telegraphing his punches before they land. (From what I understand, Colleen Wing is definitely better, but I gave up before I got to her, I couldn’t take any more of Danny.)
That’s not even getting into the “white savior” bullshit and the utter fucking racism of the show, or Finn Jones’ douchey behavior. (I don’t think he’s a terrible person, but he is tone-deaf and insensitive, and that’s a problem.)
So I won’t be watching the rest of the season, although I’m sorry to miss my girl Claire being her usual badass self. (She needs to open a home for superheroes, istg)
We all know, but it never ceases to amaze me, just how
much Hide means for Kaneki. How many times he’s been to one to push Kaneki
forward. How many times he’s turned a sorrowful day into something brighter. He
was the one to always trust him, always support him, always care about him.
Hide wasn’t just someone who accepted Kaneki’s existence; he appreciated him, Kaneki ken, and loved him no matter what.
Romantic or platonic, I don’t think it
matters much. But one can’t deny that what these two share is beautiful and
I think we all remember that scene where Kaneki used
his kagune for the first time to save Hide from Nishiki.
“The bird fights its way out of the egg. The egg is
the world. He who would be born, must first destroy a world.”
Just as people say, living is far more than just
existing. For Kaneki, stuck between the desperate need for love and the doubt
that he deserves it, existing was merely a wait until the moment when his
desires would be fulfilled. But in that cycle of hope and fear there was no
room for accepting the love people were already giving him, he just couldn’t
see himself being loved.
But he still couldn’t give it up, and searching for a
way to satisfy it his wish to be loved became a reason to die, rather than a
reason to live. He became unable to see his own worth, deaf to his own voice
that, deep down, wished to go on.
But now the world he used to live in, under a wish
that only brought him closer to his end, has been destroyed. That world and his deadly wish have both been broken, through the voice
of the one that’s saved him again and again by proving him that there’s a
meaning in him being alive.
K’s egg, his world has been destroyed. What kind of
new world has he been born into? What kind of meaning will he find in it? We
can’t know for sure, but we do know that this world is one Kaneki has walked into
by himself. This is a life- a true life that he has chosen to live from now on.
Because in the end, that “I wanted to live on
with you” wasn’t said by Hide.
It’s what Kaneki thinks, and I’m glad he’s finally
realised it himself.
