SO KUBO-SENSEI JUST CONFIRMED IN AN INTERVIEW THAT VIKTOR AND YUURI ARE SOULMATES
AND OBVIOUSLY, just like the rest of the fandom i was sCREAMING but then i had a flashback to my philosophy classes and i remembered this:
according to plato, the origin of soulmates is that humans used to have four arms and four legs and a head with two faces. but that annoyed zeus, who determined they should be split in half so they wouldn’t be as powerful and consequentially there would be more people to praise the gods and all that jazz, and it was said that when the two separated humans find each other there would be a deep understanding of one another and they would feel unified, and then they would be truly happy.
AND THEN I THOUGHT “BUT WAIT, THIS SOUNDS FAMILIAR”
THE CONCLUSION OF STAMMI VICINO IS ABOUT FINDING YOUR SOULMATE
this is random but i feel like i have a moral obligation to promote these fics on more than just my sideblog sooooo if any of you enjoyed Captive Prince, you NEED to go read a few fics right this second, okay? okay.
we all know AU’s, right? well, for those who don’t, it stands for Alternate Universe. Basically, they take a certain aspect, and give it to all the characters in a game, or fanfic, or whatever medium. For example, theres underfell, where (almost) every character in undertale is evil. going off this knowledge, I have a bit of a complaint. it deals with the “AU” inktale. I put the quotation marks on au because I feel it isn’t an entire alternate universe. In it, there is a sole character. just one. who knows what happened to the others, but the only character, not only is one of the most popular characters in undertale, but is just a “creative” version of him. this….troubles me to say the least
now don’t get me wrong, I love ink sans style! but to say the entirety of his form is an AU, is a bit of a stretch. I feel like “AU”‘s such as inktale, and underfresh focus on drawing sans in a particular style, then just call it a day
not that theres a problem with that, but
can you really call something an AU if it only features one character? I mean, sure you can, but theres really no depth to the rest. like, “ok so heres ink sans…wheres ink frisk? or ink undyne?? or anyone else for that matter????” it really seems like a large chunk is missing
if you’re going to go so far as create an entirely different universe, I suggest you make *ahem* MORE THAN ONE CHARACTER to fit said universe. like I get it. sans is very popular with the fanbase. but hes not the ONLY character in undertale
