how bout the fact that mick only “betrayed” the team the first time because he thought he was literally talking to himself. how bout the fact that he never would have betrayed them again if they had just had one ounce of faith in him, the man they’ve fought beside dozens of times. huh.
this year kinda sucked for a lot of people. between celebrity deaths & political fuck-ups, 2016 was a rough one. but thank you, jack, for filling this horrible year with smiles & laughter. here’s to yet another year watching your videos & seeing you grow as both a person & a youtuber.
Y'all know Joyce and Jonathan aren’t gonna let will go anywhere alone. Jonathan will insist on driving Will everywhere even if it’s a super short walk and Joyce will find herself sleeping in his room almost every night so she can reassure herself that her baby is okay and he’s still here until Will says mom your back must hurt lets just sleep in your room. Will is secretly glad they don’t let him be alone because when he is he goes back there and he can’t handle it and it just makes my heart hurt
Generally, sports anime have this certain formula.
High School Kids + National Title (and sometimes some batshit insane moves that can’t be done in real life), basically.
But Yuri!!! On Ice? A breath of fresh air that broke down boundaries like a wrecking ball.
It’s very limited that you see adult protagonists in a sports anime, but here we have Yuuri Katsuki, twenty-four, generally relatable. He has anxiety, he has self-confidence issues and the anime staff addresses each of his issues in such a real and relatable way that I almost forgot it was anime.
The progress of their relationship? The pinning? The awkwardness to the confidence? To the tender looks of just unwavering love and support from both Victor and Yuuri? What I love most is that both Victor and Yuuri are adults and through the season, we’ve seen them talk in their relationship like adults. We didn’t get that frustrating misunderstandings (granted we were given cliffhangers of death twice). I’ve never seen anything so beautiful especially in a sports anime.
The skating? Per-fucking-fect. I love how it was just figure skating and not some add on moves that can’t be done in real life. I love how it was realistic down to the last detail. How we all (to some t ) got our representation.
So yeah, am I in love with Yuri!!! On Ice? You bet I fucking am.
I can breathe because Yuri!!! on Ice wasn’t what I expected, it was more than my expectations and I am pleasantly surprised. I didn’t think I could love something as much as I did with Yuri!!! on Ice And as much as I hate to compare myself to Victor, he’s right. It gave me life and love.
“Where are you going now, Yuri?” Viktor asks, because practice is over and his brain can focus on other things like 1) the hole in his sleeve 2) the impressive gap in Yakov’s eyebrow that he does not want to know about and 3) chitchat with rinkmates.
“I’m going to try this new club,” Georgi announces, like nobody knows he’s just seen his ex check in there. “Seems cool.”
Viktor smiles politely and turns back to Yuri, who has just graduated from juniors. “How about you?”
Yuri gives him this look. The one you give to an adult when they ask how to print an email attachment.
“Seeing my grandpa,” he says. “It’s Sunday. We’re making pierogi.”
This is the most Yuri has ever said to Viktor, and he seems to have exhausted his reserves. Viktor’s follow up questions are all met with irritable shrugs.
Sometimes Viktor says he’s going out but stays in. Sometimes Viktor says he’s staying in to do laundry when he is 100% planning to try out that new bar the next block over.
do you ever get in one of the moods were you just want to be held, and to be called babygirl and even just to be loved. like, sometimes i just get in this weird mood when all i want in the world is affection ugh
i just wanna take this opportunity to say that phil has genuinely changed my life for the better, he has been one of the most influential and positive people throughout my teen years and i wouldn’t be where or who i am today if it weren’t for him.
subscribing to amazingphil was definitely one of, if not the, best decisions of my life; and i’m sure there are 4 million other people out there who will agree.
