i-messed-up-on-the-other-one

The other thing that’s troubled me in a lot of the posts I’ve caught glimpses of today in response to that James Arthur quote is the amount of “intelligence”-based elitism. Like one post I saw literally listed on one hand how Louis is clever/smart/smarter than lots of people combined, and on the other listed how Louis is not a “chav” or lad. Beyond the larger issue of how metrics of determining what it means to be “smart” are messed up in lots of ways, it also frustrates me to see value judgments given to people based on their perceived intelligence. Louis’ perceived intelligence level shouldn’t impact how you view him as a person. And it especially upsets me when intelligence categorized as traits associated with wealthy people, and drawn as a direct contrast against traits associated with middle-to-lower income people, as if you can’t be both intelligent and a chav/as if intelligence is only held by people who present themselves in a certain way and come from certain backgrounds. 

Money ≠ intelligence ≠ your value as a person.

I HC that Jesse was a persistent flirt (trying to impress Hanzo but not sure if the archer felt the same way at all and didn't want to ruin their friendship), but Hanzo was the one to initiate their romance.

Yeah I agree with this. I think Jesse would flirt with him all the time and try and see what boundaries he could press, and that would light the fire between the two of them. But I think he would be too nervous about messing it up and having it fall apart to push it all the way. Hanzo, on the other hand, I could see just bridging the gap and kissing him one night, laughing as Jesse gets all flustered and pulling him into another embrace to kickstart their romance. He’s not one for beating around the bush, and would rather go for what he wants.

Slasher

Anonymous asks: Sandor and Sansa are in the cast of a horror movie. Sandor is the killer and Sansa is one of the victims. The problem is Sandor can’t bear even play acting that he is hurting or killing Sansa so he keeps on messing up the shoots. You could also make it that Sansa has a hard time acting like she is afraid of Sandor. They could already be a couple or just be major crushing on each other.

For the record, I love horror movies, especially slasher ones. :3

Except for Nightmare on Elm Street… No. Just…no.

Man I want people to message me memes or anything really just to start a friendship with someone I can mess around with and draw berry bee Benson with and have friends but I like just seeing what others post and their friendships cause that’s cute too and I ain’t someone to push my way into things, especially friendships that are there. Like it was hard for me to message (—@/just-a-fandom-mess—) cause they already had such good friendships going on and I didn’t wanna just randomly show up like. “Aye lmao” and be a turd.

But alas. I am a turd.

Seriously tho I have felt so much love being in the BBS fandom (besides the negatives) than I have in any other fandom I was in. I’ve been included in a few things that I am happy with and i appreciate the people who actually took the time and all to include a turd like me in and tagged by people who felt like I needed to be tagged and the love given to me by a few people that I’ve talked with and just

I fucking love you all and I think the BBS fandom will continue to be one of the most welcoming and beat fandom I have gotten into. And I feel it’s greedy but I would just love to have more friends to talk to and have a good time with and all. But o well my I’m happy with where I am at now. And still to ANYONE WHO READS THIS and has gotten this far,

I LOVE YOU AND THANKS FOR FOLLOWING ME AND READING MY SHITTY LITTLE POSTS.

now Imma quiet down and sit here in my small corner of this fandom and observe all of you who are starting out or have been here for a while. I’m happy I can be someone to see you all grow (even if that’s weird)

JJ’s Crossing Himself Isn’t Religious

I’ve seen a couple of things about how JJ might be Catholic because of this:

and I’ve also seen a couple of people say that it’s weird because most Catholics don’t cross over the bellybutton (except for Russian Catholics, apparently), and the YOI staff probably messed something up there.

It’s not. A religion thing. Not this one. When I first saw him do this, my first thought was they did not just do that. The cross thing is actually a figure skating thing, although as far as I know, only one skater actually does it regularly.

That skater being none other than Yuzuru Hanyu, reigning Olympic and GPF champion, and the former World champion (current reigning Worlds Silver Medalist).

(watch the first couple of seconds) yeah i know they’re both purple that’s just an unfortunate coincidence i swear

Anyways Yuzu does the cross thing as an axis reminder: keep your back straight, shoulders perpendicular, arms tucked. He was asked that in an interview once and he said:

“That’s not a sign of the cross. The first vertical line is to check my vertical body line. The two horizontal lines I draw across my body are to straighten out my upper body core…“

tld;r: The staff know what they’re doing and JJ is reminding himself to stay on axis during his jumps.

concepts:
  • yuuri and yuri having trouble knowing who is being talked to

“ Yuri! Redo that toe loop! No, no, Yuri! The other one! Godammit.”

  • victor practicing his routines and stopping in the middle because he gets distracted by yuuri

“Vitya! Why did you stop??” “Yakov, have you seen my husband?”

Hogwarts Houses as Fantastic Beasts

Gryffindor: Niffler

A bit of a show off. Most likely to break rules of all the beasts and is also likely to refer to itself as a #beast. Will unintentionally get you into trouble, but will stand by what they did while apologizing. Proud of its abilities and unwilling to submit to others.

Uses its brain to solve problems. Knows exactly what you’re up to. May get you in trouble, but so smart that it’ll avoid capture even if it was their fault. Adapts based on changing situations. Approaches bad times with a calm head and helps others in need.

Hufflepuff: Bowtruckle

Loyal. Generally underestimated. Unlikely to get into trouble unless it’s particularly prone. Decides where it will be happiest at an early stage and will hold onto that decision forever. Uses its abilities to solve problems. Generally peaceful but if you hurt it or one of its few close friends it will mess you up.

And finally (the whole reason I made this post)…

Given a bad rap. Default is offensive rather than defensive. Extremely loyal if you put in the time. Looks like it could kill you but is actually a cinnamon roll. Will not get into trouble ever at all because it knows when to take risks and when to stay out of it. Highly skilled and will do whatever it can to help a close friend.

Anxiety and Retirement

I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about Yuuri’s feelings towards retirement. Last night my TL was filled with worried fans, alongside those excited about the defacto proposal. And seeing that, compiled with the preview for episode 10 have built up quite a bit of emotion in me. So, I’m just going to spill my opinions here. This is just how I view the situation. It’s my thoughts on how it might be handled. It could very well go in a different direction, but I’ve found my thoughts different from some of the others I’ve seen tackling this issue. I thought it a good idea to add in another viewpoint to the mess.

One of the things I really want to address is Yuuri’s anxiety. It’s something very real in the series, brought up by Yuuko early on, and seen affecting Yuuri in many ways. From his failures after the GPF last year due to his inabilities to cope with losing and Vicchan’s death to the explosion in episode 7 and so much more. I feel like the moments his anxiety is obviously explored are very clear to the fandom. I’ve seen a lot of people with anxiety expressing how clear a portrayal of the disorder Yuuri is. As a sufferer myself, I have to agree.

And that brings me to something. I feel like there are parts of Yuuri’s anxiety that are maybe downplayed, or less noticed, that greatly affect some of the recent moments we’ve had. And that is Negative Thinking. Yuuri is a clear case of this. He says it himself.

Yuuri got into the GPX, yes, but it was essentially on a technicality. The only reason he was granted invite over Michele was due to the fact he had a Silver in China. That’s it. And that… that can’t feel good. That is not something to be proud of. That’s a feeling of failure because, really, do I deserve this chance now? You can see it in his desperate search for comfort after the medal ceremony. It’s a funny scene, dead-eye Yuuri running around hugging people, Yurio running away, but it’s also so, so sad to me. Yuuri is looking for something he can’t find. Release from his anxiety.

Release he finds in Victor’s arms. From that first hug before Eros until now, Victor has been the one there to abate Yuuri’s anxiety when it flares up. He’s made it this far and built so much confidence, but that’s the problem with anxiety. You can build and build and build, and then that one things comes in and tears it all down in a moment. The next time you rebuild, you have a pattern, a blue print, and it’s easier, but that doesn’t negate the fact that for those moments you feel hopeless and lost all over again.

And that’s, in my opinion, where Yuuri was as he stood outside on the street in episode 9. His thoughts during the skate, about Victor understanding, about not wanting to make Victor’s work look like it was for naught, all nagging in his mind and being consumed by a cloud of anxiety over the ‘I don’t actually deserve this. I’m not even as good as I was last year, when I got in and wanted to skate on the same ice as Victor, and I have him by me and I’m still this useless.’

So, he feels he’s done and over with, he can’t move up. He just keeps falling. He wants that gold, but either way it’s it. He’s done with because, look at him, he’s failing even now. He’ll let Victor go, because obviously he’s wasted on him, no matter how much Yuuri wants to keep him. It’s selfish.

And Yurio comes and literally kicks him out of it. And tells Yuuri to buck up. Something he’s heard before. He’s heard that he shouldn’t be this upset before. He’s heard don’t retire – from Mooroka, from Minami – and he shakes back to life a little.

But then, then he goes home. And there is Victor. Those arms he was so desperately searching for. Waiting, open, rushing for him. And he flings himself into those arms. And immediately Victor tells Yuuri he was thinking about him, how he can be a better coach to him, what he can do for him. And Yuuri wants that, but didn’t he also just make a choice? To retire and let Victor go? That’s the best course of action, isn’t it? But for a moment, he’s selfish, and please god, at least until I make it official I gave up, stay with me. Take care of me, because you do it in so much more than skating, and I need that. Because once he says he’s done, will Victor go? Back to Russia? Done and gone? He’s just here to coach me through GPF, isn’t he?

But then Victor says those words. Those few words Yuuri so desperately needed to hear. I want to stay with you, forever. I don’t want to leave. Don’t stop, keep going, so I can stay with you. It sounds like a proposal, I hear what you are saying behind the guise of skating, and I get it. I truly do, Yuuri.

And those tears in his eyes. They could be for many reasons, because he was so sure about it all ending and he’s changed his mind, he’d gotten confidence back, or because he’s shook by finally, finally feeling affirmed that Victor is his. He’s not seducing the playboy anymore, he’s caught him, fully, entirely. Or it could be because he’s scared that he’ll say he still wants to stop and maybe Victor’s mind will change. Because that’s what anxiety is. A monster haunting you and stopping you from processing that things can be good and okay.

And in the next episode there will be a talk of some sort. And we see that church and those soft looks and I can only hope, that in those moments, maybe they have both grown enough to admit to wanting to stay by each other, never leaving, without the idea of skating. Because then, either way, they will grow stronger. Yuuri will be able to skate, without the anxiety that if he doesn’t do well enough, this will be it with Victor. That his love, in regards to his love, it is truly about him now, not just the skate. About YUURI, the one on the ice, not the ice itself.

So all this, all these muddled feelings, mixed with the possibility of a second season existing, this makes me think it’s not the end for Yuuri. That he will fight down that monster and keep going. Because as much as he seems okay with winning and ending, I know that fire in his expression when Minami told him to keep going, I know those haunted thoughts that stop me and make me okay with stopping even if I don’t want to, and I see them in Yuuri. I don’t think he truly is okay with ending his career here. Could he and be fine? Yes. But is the desire there, deep down, to keep going and reach further heights and surprise the world and Victor more also burning in him? I certainly think so.

I love how these two moments contrast nicely to each other, even though they do seem similar.

In both cases, the recipients of the messed-up bento are smiling gratefully at Sanji, telling him that his food is great. Although Sora was clearly lying to protect her son’s feelings, little Sanji is oblivious to his mother’s kind intent, ever so happy that he made her smile with his cooking. 

In Luffy’s case however, I’m pretty sure he was telling the truth; he really enjoyed Sanji’s bento because he was that much hungry and missed his cook’s food sorely. But Sanji tells him that he’s lying - maybe because he can’t bear the thought that Luffy even enjoys something like a ruined bento as long as it’s from him. 

I think it’s also possible that Sanji might’ve been irresistibly reminded of his mother, and told Luffy the words he should’ve told her had he not been so young and naive. 

More than anything, the title of this chapter “you liar” clearly refers to Sanji, but it’s ironic how he’s the one telling it to Luffy, who is anything but lies.
