Please stay, please stay there a little longer

Yuuri didn’t actually mess up at the Sochi GPF theory

Okay so I was rewatching episode one when I noticed something from the news articles about the Free Skate failure:

The word “today” really did stick out at me here. As you know, both programmes would not be on the same day, so with the way this article is phrased, it sounds like he at least did okay during his Short. And then this comes directly afterwards:

I’m not sure about the original Japanese, but the use of “fell” here suggests a dramatic turn around. To fall, you must be at some height. And for them to make an article on it? No, Yuuri must have not been already in last place. We know Viktor must have been in first place, but Yuuri? I think he was fourth MINIMUM based on this. He even says in some internal monologue:

His ‘big day’? Why would it be a big day if he’d already done disastrously a day or two before in his Short? Surely, a ‘ big day’ would symbolise him possibly winning a medal?

If he was in last place already, he wouldn’t HAVE that kind of pressure. But all of these lines highly suggests to me that he at least had a shot at doing well during the GPF, maybe he was even close enough that he could have had a chance for a silver medal.

We find out during episode five that during the GPF, Yuuri can’t have scored above 94.36, as they announce it to be his personal best. Still, there’s no reason he couldn’t have scored around 90 ish, which when looking at the other scores that year, probably would have put him in a good position

I did the maths as yes, if you plug his Short score at around 90 it gives a realistic Free score considering he pretty much messed up all of the technical points.

Yuuri Katsuki was most likely in line for bronze or silver after his Short

What does this mean?

This little interaction of Viktor not recognising him as a skater is so much worse, as is Yuuri’s FS failure overall

tl;dr Yuuri actually did very well in his short last time


Edit: I’m kind of bored of getting the same response now so I’m just adding that I don’t really think Viktor actually didn’t know Yuuri as a skater. What I think is that Yuuri probably took the interaction to mean that, and he thought Viktor didn’t recognise him maybe. 

voltron characters as things i have heard people actually say in my ap classes part two:

sendak: “i would willingly stab out my own eye with this pencil if it means i look more badass”

haxus: “sometimes i just look at myself in the mirror and think ‘holy shit i’m so attractive’ or ‘who the fuck dragged this piece of shit out of the garbage’ and there’s just no in between”

thace: “sometimes i sigh so loud that i’m genuinely surprised my lungs aren’t catapulted from my chest cavity”

prorok: “wow can you believe you get to breathe the same air as me ??? you must be blessed *finger guns*”

rolo: “wanna hear about the time i saw jesus after mixing four shots of caffeine with two red bulls and a redline ??? lol i don’t know how i’m alive either but i got my essay done in like twenty minutes”

nyma: “i got an 89 on the last essay and a 36 on the one we just got back and all i can say is get you a girl that can do both”

shay: “*shoving cloth into her bag from the theater department* i keep telling everyone that i own cats but it’s a lie. its a dirty dirty lie these are for the raccoons that visit my backyard. i also buy cat food for raccoons can you believe the predicament i’m in”

kolivan: “bitch i would punt you into the sun no hesitation”

ulaz: “my life is the bee movie except every time someone says ‘essay’ i die just a little more inside”

antok: “everyone says i’m a chill guy but my life is crashing down around me and my internal monologue is one giant keyboard smash on caps lock *takes sip of coffee*”

I swear this fanfiction gives me so much life.

He’d had would have tried!
He’d would have faced you!
All night long!
Then at last you’ve gone!

Now, you thought I wouldn’t draw any angst.
AND YOU WERE WRONG.

I fell in love with Talon!McCree by @thelonecoywolf and I just need more aaah–  (〒u〒)

so, i noticed that my human bill turned a year old this month (ayy same birth-month!) so I thought it would be funny and interesting to compare him to the first real drawing I ever made of him (theres more but they are all sketches and TERRIBLE) and OH BOY CHECK THIS OUT the guy changed a lot! I love it tho, it’s a good change and he went through a lot of that but I’m super at peace with where he is right now. I really wanna draw my AU as a comic now.

i’m not a hoe in the way that i’ve done stuff i’m a hoe in how willing i am to do stuff u kno? like some dude could be sitting behind me in a movie theatre and kiss me on the neck and if i thought he was cute i would leav w him

Hope everyone is doing well! Sorry for the relative silence lately - work, social commitments, the usual (also the cold I caught when I supposed to be out catching Pokemon). :D I’m going to try to queue up some posts while I still feel up to editing (before I resume binge-watching The Office), but fiiiiirst I wanted to share my Valentine’s Day surprise…

In anticipation of SnK Season 2, @ghostmartyr and I would like to host a Season 1 Watch Party. Sound like fun? Great! Want to know more? So do we! Throw us your rabid thoughts, and we shall cater to our adoring public with great aplomb.

Take the Season 1 Watch Party Survey

Songbird

A/N: This is the sequel to Silence, which was far more popular than I thought it would be, so thank you all for that! This sequel was requested by @pixikinz (it’s not tagging you I’m sorry!) and a few other people that I’m having trouble finding and tagging… I’ll tag @princess-of-erebor1992 for helping me get up the courage to write it. I hope you enjoy this!

Summary: You adjust to life with Thorin’s Company, and find yourself drawn to its charismatic leader.

Word Count: 1,551

Warnings: Shirtless Thorin (shield our eyes from the beauty!!), mention of wounds


Once Thorin learned your name, he used it as often as possible. It made you feel more at home to hear your name so frequently, even if it was in a voice that did not at all sound like home. Thorin’s voice was deep and resonant, regal with a hint of wildness that you wondered if he might ever tame.

You hoped he wouldn’t.

His company had gotten better about not begging you to sing at every moment. They only asked for music every few hours, which was easier on you. Kili and Ori asked most often, the former with fluttering eyelashes that betrayed his flirtatious youthfulness, the latter with a shy bashfulness that you found hard to refuse. In the end, you sang more than you meant to, though Thorin was always mindful of his dwarves’ requests. He would quell the requests that would tax you the most, smiling in that close-lipped way of his as you nodded your silent thanks. Some days he would not let you sing at all, to your bafflement.

I’ve been feeling really discouraged and lonely in my fanfic writing lately. While it may be true that I’m writing primarily for self-expression, I would also really like to write in community and have more feedback. I feel like I only get a tiny bit of that here and in the few scattered reviews I get on AO3 and FFN. I didn’t get much feedback at all on my last chapter and it was a bit demoralizing — I don’t know if it’s because my writing sucks, or if people dislike my take on things, or if it’s just a matter of people simply not having read it yet. 

I’d also really like to discover more fanfic and encourage other writers however I can. 

All that to say, does anyone know of any good online communities that involve sharing fic (particularly about Han x Leia)? I seem to remember stumbling across a Han x Leia writers blog at some point but I can’t remember the name. @graciecatfamilyband I might have stumbled upon it through one of your posts?

Anyway I just thought I’d throw this question out to the wind and see if it catches. If anyone has any pointers for this relatively new fic writer, it would be very much appreciated!

Hello hello! I know there’s already plenty of points made about the controversial kiss or hug between Yuuri and Viktor, but I happened to notice something else that could help provide some evidence it was more likely to be a kiss. However, this does not mean it’s 100% set in stone it was a kiss, and this is just my opinion and something I happened to notice whist analyzing the clip as I tried to decipher what I thought about it myself.

In the first photo when the kiss is initiated you can see that they are almost upright as the scene is slowed down and they haven’t fallen that far.

Then we pan to Minako, and then to Yuuri’s family and friends at home with their shocked reactions.

Now in the second photo (the part that caused most of this controversy) Viktor’s head is to the side of Yuuri’s. But notice how they are now a mere inch or two off the ground compared to the nearly upright stature they had when they began the kiss.

See what I mean? Viktor obviously was not going for a makeout session when he initiated the kiss, he was just going to get a simple ‘smooch’. So from the time the kiss was initiated while they were nearly upright to the time they were only an inch or two from the ground it’s quite likely the kiss was not long and ended, then Viktor moved his head to the side of Yuuri’s. He also would have done this because as Yuuri’s head hit the ground it would have recoiled back to Viktor, and if they were to keep kissing all the way down that wouldn’t have ended well now would it?

EDIT: Another thing to notice, not in these photos but if you watch the clip (which is no doubt everywhere right now including my own blog). When we see them kissing from the side view as they fall, Viktor’s head stays in the same place even though they’re moving down. If he were just hugging Yuuri his head should’ve continued to move past Yuuri’s face and to the side of his head as they continued to fall. But no. It’s suspended in the same spot as they are falling down.
