I spend so much time making art and fanworks and I just -- I get 3 likes and no reblogs. I work so hard, and practice, and think so hard about what I'm going to make. But no one cares. I feel so discouraged and sad. Its been so amazing to watch the two of you grow and gain all the recognition you both deserve. How did you deal with this feeling?

One of the hardest lessons of posting art online was learning to not let the attention (or lack thereof) get to us. It can be really difficult when you put a lot of time an energy into a piece that gets crickets (we’ve been there) and then something you didn’t put a lot of thought or care into gets a ton. There’s really no way to tell what will and will not resonate with other people.

What we’ve come to learn is that, while seeing others enjoy what we create is nice, ultimately we need to satisfy ourselves first. I know that this can be hard, especially in an online environment where thoughts and communication are shared quickly and easily, but keeping ourselves happy with the content we created helped when we got discouraged. It still existed, it still mattered, even if it was only to ourselves.

It’s okay to be feeling discouraged and sad. There’s nothing wrong with that. Those emotions are honest and valid, and god knows we’ve have a history with feeling inadequate with our art. What’s important is to acknowledge those feelings and not let them stop you from doing something you enjoy.

As long as you’re happy with it, others will follow. It may take time (it certainly did for us), but that’s okay. I know that feel that lack of recognition can be trying, but it shouldn’t stop you from creating. I think fanwork is an act of love that the creator has with the source material, and eventually you will see other people share that love with your creations.


Oh darling, what you think is clinging is only there because it won’t melt away super quick. It takes time, it takes patience and I promise you you’re not actually gaining. If you’re eating less than 1,200 calories the body naturally retains water, and that will go away on its own time hon’ i promise you. You’re going to be alright. Take a deep breath in, let it out. You’re alright.

I hate the phrase “let that sink in”

I've been getting misgendered a lot more than usual lately, or maybe I'm just around to notice it, but I'm starting to realize I'm sort of numb to it? It happens and I correct them when I can, but a lot of the time I just let it go because I don't want to deal with it. I think I'm just tired and weary of dealing with it all, but I guess I just wanted to tell someone who knows what it's like and get their opinion..

Honestly? That’s So Common. After so long its just something you’re used to.

There was this one war table mission, where you were supposed to boost the soldiers’ morale at the keep in the Western Approach. The suggestions gave me some pause. This is how I imagine it all played out at the table XD.

Okay, let me be the one to say what we’re all low-key thinking about episode 8:

It didn’t have enough Victuri moments.

And not only that, but also the fact that you could probably pass the ones that we did get all off as ‘acting for the cameras’.

Or the fact that the kiss from ep 7 was never mentioned or otherwise acknowledged in the story.

And I think all of us may worry: Did YOI finally reach its limit? Did episode 7 have no significance to Victor and Yuuri’s relationship at all? Did they mark the kiss off their list and went “good enough, let’s forget about their mutual attraction now”?

In my opinion? No.

Is Victuri still canon? Yes, very much so.

Why did episode 8 focus on them so little then?

I think this much is apparent by now: Yuri on Ice has very little time left. We literally have only 4 episodes to go, one of which will be Rostelecom Free Skate, and at least two of which will be the Grand Prix Final. This time around, Victor and Yuuri’s screentime was taken by the 4 new skaters (not sure if it was entirely necessary) and Yurio (which was absolutely necessary and I’d argue that we didn’t get enough of him). And trust me when I say that I love the creators’ ambitions and their desire to show that each skater is unique and the world of figure skating is diverse and interesting, and their dedication is admirable but we just don’t have enough time for all of that.

However, I also don’t think that the focus will stay away from Victor and Yuuri for long now. This episode was important in terms of establishing the new skaters, but I believe that in ep 9, Victor and Yuuri will be in the main picture once more (even without Victor being physically there, and God, this can go in so many directions).

Is YOI trying to do more than it has the time for? Yes, absolutely, and it might just be a shot in the leg for the production team.

But does that mean that we should worry? No.

Yuri on Ice has taught us many times that it can surpass our expectations. I think we can trust it to impress us again.

Meant to get this out sooner but @nightsofllyn ‘s amazing fic Our Fragile Co-commandership ended and boy was it a wild ride. I’m sad its over but at the same time the ending just hit me really hard

So here’s a totally hilarious exchange between Kylo and Hux that was probably my favorite in the whole story, I think the funniest scenarios in this chapter where the ones that may or may not have happened (especially the bit with Phasma at a cantina) 

Honestly this whole fic was like reading three different fics. the styles and plots were so different but tied together really well regardless so I wanted this comic to be in a different style than the other ones I did. So if u haven’t read this work of art yet go do that I will never stop plugging this fic


I believe that it wasn’t just by chance that we met but that it was written in our plan long before anyone knew. I think that by [God] placing us together was his way of letting us know that we needed each other. Looking back to the day we were formed I would have never thought even in my wildest imagination that we would make it to this point. I love you all for each of your own reasons. I love you for making my dreams come true.
