is there an official ship name for them or...

History of YOI fandom

As a YOI fandom grandparent, I felt it was my duty to write out all the fandom explosions for the newer fans who weren’t there to witness the big bang and gradual week-by-week creation of this universe. All the arguments, people blowing things out of proportion, blaming characters, death theories, awesome fans clearing up miscommunications, YOI breaking the internet… 

This isn’t a post to call out specific people on their arguments and theories - I’ll stay respectfully away from restarting flames and picking fights, thankyouverymuch. Rather, this is an overview of the topics and conflicting views that swept across hundreds and thousands of people and prompted strong reactions. I’m doing this now, because I know that 6 months later, 1 year later, 3 years later, etc. there will be new fans who will have many of the same exact arguments. We’ve been there and done that. I see fans now who say things without knowing where the spelling/quote comes from, or who don’t realize how much has changed, or don’t know why there are certain perceptions of characters. So here’s a little bit of passing down history.

I also don’t want to forget the crazy ride this was. Laugh with me at the silly theories; smile with me at how deeply YOI has impacted our lives.
For those of us old-timers, let’s take a trip down memory lane. Remember when…

—————-
(Large arguments will be italicized or bold. Special thanks to @sachiro for reminding me of a bunch of stuff I missed, and looking over the draft in its various stages of being written and edited.)

Pre-series

  • Idea that there would be a love triangle (Yuri P.–Yuri K.–Victor)
  • Some fans started spelling Yuri Katsuki with two “u” in order to tell them apart.
  • Victuri ship name created for Victor x Yuri K. (in a comment to the PV)
  • The title
    • “lol ‘Yuri’ on Ice? Where are all the lesbians?”
    • “When it said Yuri on Ice, I thought we would get girls. Y’know what I mean?”
    • “Yuri on Ice? More like Yaoi on Ice! amiright?”
    • etc.
  • J.J. misspelling (English spelling “Jean Jack” instead of French Canadian “Jean-Jacques”)
    • you can see the remnants of this in the audience banners during the episodes, but it was corrected to “Jean-Jacques” on the official website and the in-show text
  • Phichit x Seung-gil ship created (there was more art for this than for Victor x Yuuri)

Episode 1

  • Victor vs. Viktor spelling arguments 
    • Although “Victor” is the official spelling and seen in-show, people argued that the creators are wrong and that we fans know better than them about Russian culture - thus the “Viktor” spelling was born.
    • People argued back that spelling is subjective and you can spell a name multiple ways and still be correct - thus transliterating his Russian name into English as “Victor” would be just as acceptable.
    • The YOI wiki held fast for a time on using official spellings and information from the official website, but the transition of power led to a new team that started using agreed-upon info rather than solely using official info. “Viktor” replaced “Victor” on the website.
      • this change from “Victor” to “Viktor” on the wiki happened around episode 2~3, but the arguments were in the page comments since episode 1 – with moderators explaining their reasoning with sticking to official sources.
  • Victor is a flirtatious over-the-top character who will seduce Yuuri
  • Victor is the overwhelming seme and Yuuri is the shy whimpering uke.

Top ten ships? (Friendship, relationship, etc)

1. Mchanzo - Overwatch. God. My life, my blood, my reason for living, my heart, my everything. This. Them.

2. Reaper76 - Overwatch . Grouchy dads in love, what’s not to like? The angst and pain that comes with it is just a plus.

3. JayDick - DC. Dick Grayson is Love. Jason is Life. I adore them as bros or as a romance. Just…leave me here to die, I’ll be fine.

4. Sheith - Voltron. I’m so weak. So much love. Whether it’s as bros or otherwise, just let them be happy.

5. SuperBat - DC. The eternal ship. If I one day decide to stop shipping them, it won’t matter because they’ll continue to ship themselves. I ship the bromance and the romance. 

6. Angbang - The Silmarillion. My weakness…Dark Lords banging.

7. Pharmercy - Overwatch. HAVE YOU SEEN PHARAH?? DAMN. I love the contrast of this ship, they’re beautiful.

8. Sidlink (Slinky) - LoZ. Idc what the official name is, Slinky is cute. As Bros or romantic ship, I ship.

10. Stucky - Marvel. See a trend here?? Bros or romantic couple, it’s until the end of the line with these boys.

nursey + chowder: cuddling

Nursey wanders into Chowder’s room. Chowder knows its supposed to be a casual thing, like Nursey just so happened to stumble upon his bedroom, which doesn’t really work since he is very familiar with the layout, because he also lives here. But he thinks its cute, despite it being maybe the fourth time Nursey’s done this in the past week. Chowder is laying on his bed, one of Lardo’s art books, which is basically entirely Georgia O'keefe paintings, laid out in front of him. He can see where she got the inspiration for the boob painting, now. Nursey being Nursey, immediately recognizes the distinctive floral paintings, and shoots Chowder a wry grin that might make him go weak at the knees if he wasn’t laying down.
“Hey Nursey! You wanna look at this vagina with me?” Chowder pats the space behind him, a purposefully wide gap between the wall and his back.
“That’s probably the worst possible way you could’ve worded that.” Nursey hovers, like he’s still unsure about Chowder’s very clear invitation. It’s a very Nursey thing to do and Chowder might love him for it. But then again, he loves basically everything Nursey does. It’s getting to the point where he thinks he might just love Nursey? There’s maybe an 85% chance but he’s never been very good at probability, so he turns the page and says,
“I find them relaxing.”
“Vaginas?” Nursey says, a tiny chuckle escaping almost as an afterthought. He’s very bad at keeping a straight face, but Chowder admires his tenacity.
“The paintings, but I get how you would be confused.” Chowder flashes a grin at him, and Nursey cracks another little smile. He’s never seen Nursey like this except in these moments, bashful and maybe a little flirtatious. He might get there sometimes with Dex and Chowder might see it, but when it’s directed at him it’s like sirens are going off in his head.
“Oh, right. Paintings.” Nursey fiddles with his watch, a nice, handsome leather and Chowder waits for a moment,
“Come over here and spoon me, I know you want to.” He says, and finally, finally, Nursey closes the door with a soft click, kicks off his shoes, and hops into Chowder’s bed, warm arms sliding around his stomach. Chowder shifts a little and then, well, life’s pretty much perfect.

no one asked about my soulmate au but you’re gonna get it

  • so you can pry demi shiro from my cold dead hands
  • meaning the names (yes NAMES) on his body are smudged and faint
  • he hasnt met these people, he hasnt formed a connection, but he could
  • meanwhile matt’s soulmark (just the one) is under his collarbone, easy to hide with a casual t-shirt
  • the problem is he cant read it. his soulmate has horrible handwriting
  • and allura is in a cryopod, so she cant spend much time thinking about the strange scrawl on her hip
  • shiro and matt meet at the garrison and they just click together
  • slowly, the mark under shiros collar bone starts to darken and take shape
  • and its two years after they meet that shiro looks in the mirror and realizes holy crap not only is that matt’s name but its his HANDWRITING
  • he rushes to find matt and they happy hug because they’re soulmates!!
  • but shiro decides to just tell him now
  • “i have another name.”
  • he shows matt the indistinct grey blur on his right hip, and matt shrugs
  • “as long as you don’t leave me entirely, and we all communicate with each other, we can make this work”
  • shiro’s like “but you only have the one mark”
  • matt laughs and says “the universe must have decided we wouldn’t match”
  • bc matt is hella gay. he understands why he only has the one mark when shiro later introduces him to allura. he laughs and they get along great, the bestest of platonic buds
  • so matt and shiro go on the kerberos mission (imagine going to see a moon with your soulmate!) 
  • and the galra get them
  • and they get separated and shiro is back on earth and now that he knows what having matt by him at all sides is like hes not ready to give it up
  • so hell yah he gets in that weird lion thing and hell yah he flies to that alien planet and hell yah he helps that princess (who’s really pretty and why is his hip tingling every time he speaks to her?)
  • and allura is kind and smart and strong and resourceful and beautiful and powerful and sweet and wow shiro realizes shes pretty amazing
  • and then he looks in the mirror and her name is on his hip in bold black, in a pretty cursive, as dark and as valid as matts name
  • when he tells her she looks at him with wide eyes
  • “you have awful handwriting”
  • seriously shiros poor soulmates no one can read his handwriting
  • allura understands shiro has two soulmates (“it happened all the time on altea!”) but she only has one and matt only has one and honestly its fine
  • she helps him get matt back and shiro may cry a little when they rescue him
  • “matt, this is allura, my soulmate. allura, this is matt, my soulmate”
  • he introduces them to people like that a lot
  • so basically the rest of this au is fluffy nerds being nerds
  • matt/shiro/allura is Good and Awesome they are the dorkiest adults in the world
  • coran officiates the wedding
  • they are the space parents
  • poly space parents
  • some other Thoughts:
  • allura teaching them both Altean
  • Poly!! Parents!! Getting!! Kittens!!
  • allura and matt stage an intervention. shiro really does have awful handwriting. 

oKAY BUT HEAR ME OUT, because someone unmentionable said that in this official pic, Pine totally looks like he’s gonna put his arm around Lilium and also they hang out together during breaks and in episode 3, they were always?? together??? and??

this has been a long time coming, who am i even kidding…

The Dinner Date

The Dinner Date

Bucky x Reader

Requested by anon;

‘Okay so i had a dream and i need an imagine just like it. So the reader is dating bucky and for the past week or so she becomes distant and he starts to notice. And then when he went out with friends to like a fancy restaurant he sees her there with thor and another couple. Not knowing they’re undercover as a couple he thinks she’s cheating. When thor and reader see bucky they start to panic and start hiding like bringing the menu up in their face so he doesn’t compromise the mission.’

Contains fluff, a brief drowning and Bucky Barnes


If you had closed your eyes for a moment you could almost have willed yourself to imagine you were at the beach with your family; playing chicken with the ocean and laughing at the sand stuck to your ice cream. But your eyes remained open, scanning the room in the flashing red light as your ears protested against the blaring alarm. “Does anyone copy?” You said into the comms, desperately hoping that someone would respond

Water dripped from the ceiling onto your forehead and you wiped it away impatiently. You needed to get out; this boat was sinking, and it was sinking fast. Your ear piece hissed and Steve’s voice came from the other end. “This is Steve, I copy loud and clear. What’s your position?”

“I’m in the cargo hold, and I’ve got something down here that you’re gonna need to see.”

“Y/N, get out of there; you’ll be locked in if this thing takes on too much more water.”

You looked around you and knew he was right; the water was waist high and rising more by the second. In another couple of minutes you wouldn’t be able to get out alive. Not ready to give up, you tried to persuade him to pay you a visit.  “Cap, you need to come and-”

“Work your way back up to the deck, now! We still have hostiles onboard, there isn’t any time.”

You groaned and kicked at the crate in front of you, puzzling frustratedly over the contents. How was it that years after he had stopped manufacturing, you were face to face with a crate full of Stark weapons?

-

You lay on the floor in the quinjet, soaking wet and shivering; you hadn’t seen the hostile until it was too late and she had thrown you overboard. You remembered what it felt like to fall, the moment it had taken you to comprehend what was going on before the ocean slapped you in the back and pulled you under. It was like being encased in ice; you couldn’t move; you couldn’t breathe, despite your lungs desperately trying.

As you had coughed the last of the ocean water from your lungs safely on board the quinjet with Natasha slapping you on the back, Bucky watched in a mixture of relief and horror. How had he missed it? One moment you had been stood six feet away from him; the next you were a ripple in the ocean. There had been a horrible, sickening moment when he had realised you weren’t going to resurface on your own. He hadn’t hesitated to dive in after you, and when he had found you motionless beneath the surface he had prayed to whatever god there was above that you would live.

You gasped for air, turning your head to the side to search for him with stinging eyes. You scanned blurry faces until you found his, watching you feebly. You stretched your shaking hand out to him and he was there in an instant; dripping wet and everything that made you feel safe. Your Bucky. “It’s okay,” He whispered into your hair as you used all of your meager strength to cling to him “you’re going to be okay.”

As his heart ached with joy one unshakeable thought entered his mind; he was most definitely, helplessly and completely in love with you.

-

The next day you lay in bed, feeling like you’d been run over and worrying about most things under the sun, particularly the crate of Stark weapons you had found in the cargo hold of that ship. How had they gotten a hold of them? Tony had gone on a veritable crusade after he shut down his weapons manufacturing division to reclaim any and everything that might have fallen into the wrong hands. Nothing had been unaccounted for; or so you had all thought.

You sat up slowly and groaned in pain. You knew without looking in the mirror that your entire back was bruised from the force you had hit the water with. “FRIDAY?” You asked, picking up the tablet from your bedside table “I’m gonna need your help with something.”

“Tony says you are to be on complete bed rest today, Y/N. I’m not technically supposed to do anything for you other than open netflix.”

You frowned and crossed your legs beneath you. “Then let’s keep this between us for now; we can’t let Tony know any of what I’m about to tell you.”

If FRIDAY had had a physical form, you were sure she would have been rolling her eyes at you. “Fine, but if anyone asks I had nothing to do with this.”

“You’ve got it,” You muttered before elevating your voice “do you have access to who purchased Stark weapons back in the day?”

“Officially or under the table?”

“Let’s start with both for now.”

For the next two hours you sifted through suspects, trying to find any possible connection between them and the ship you had raided last night. Two names brought up red flags; Michelle Henson and Steven Santana. You knew them by reputation, but had never had the pleasure of meeting them in person unlike the rest of the team. Well, that was except for one person… “FRIDAY, have you got a location on Thor right now?”

-

Thor leafed through the file you had given him with all the information you had gathered so far; you had asked FRIDAY to print it for you so there would be no chance of anyone else on the team stumbling across it in your online research files. “And you are sure it is these two who are in possession of the weapons?” He asked, looking up briefly before returning to the file

You shook your head “I’m not sure of anything, but it’s the best lead I’ve got so far.”

Thor nodded slowly, hovering on a photograph of Henson and Santana together. “Are they a couple?”

“Nobody is really sure; they’re definitely business partners though. One never goes to a meeting without the other.”

“How are you planning to contact them?”

You pulled a battered flip phone from your back pocket. “I pulled this from an associate of theirs a few months ago before he went into hiding. I’ll impersonate him through text and say that we’re an interested party. If there’s anything I know for sure about those two it’s that they’re greedy, if there’s even the slightest possibility of getting their hands on some money they’re in.”

Thor closed the file and put it on the water table next to you with a nod. “I will help you, Y/N, as much as I can.”

You let out a sigh of relief and placed a hand on his arm gratefully “Thank you, Thor. I wouldn’t normally ask, but I don’t think I can do this alone. Remember, you can’t tell anyone what we’re doing, not even the team.”

“You have my word.”

The door to the training room opened to reveal a frazzled Bucky Barnes. You quickly removed your hand from Thor’s arm and slid the file down the back of the table out of sight, trying to act casual. Bucky regarded the two of you strangely before clearing his throat and walking into the room. “I’ve been looking all over for you, Y/N. I stopped by your room and you weren’t there, I thought something had happened.” He said, looking at you with a caring intensity

You smiled and grabbed his hand, giving it a light squeeze as your head became a little foggy. You definitely shouldn’t have been out of bed. “I was looking for you,” You lied “I figured you might be in here like you are most Thursday’s.”

You cringed inwardly; you hated lying to him. Especially considering that you prided yourself on the fact that there were no secrets between yourself and Bucky. After dating for three months and having been close friends for nearly three years, you could truly say that you knew the man well. Which also meant that he knew you, which meant he always knew when you were lying. This was going to be hard.
“Well, here I am.” He smiled, putting an arm around you “C’mon, let’s go watch a movie and eat pizza.”

You closed your eyes and smiled as you walked out of the room, deciding to leave all thoughts of the mission behind until at least tomorrow morning. “Fine, but only if it has copious amounts of ham and pineapple.”

“You monster, fruit doesn’t belong on a pizza.”

“That’s what you think.”

-

You woke up the next morning in Bucky’s arms with a half eaten slice of pizza lay on your chest. At this point, you really weren’t sure who’s it was, and you didn’t particularly care. You picked it up and were about to take a bite when you heard it. A faint tapping at the window. Gently disentangling yourself from Bucky and grabbing your gun from underneath your pillow, you cautiously approached and raised the blind with your gun raised and your finger poised over the trigger ready. What you found on the other side made you blink in surprise. A large, inquisitive raven sat on the windowsill staring right at you. Trepidly, you opened the window and lowered your gun. It was then that you notice it; the small piece of paper tied to its left leg.

You made short work of the knot and took the heavy paper in your hands, unfolding it delicately to read the the message scrawled upon it;

Y/N,

I thought this means of communication would be more secretive than electronic messaging. I have spoken to Stark and informed him that you are assisting me with some reasearch on infinity stones for the next week. You will need to meet me at 16:00 in the garage to discuss things further. Please send your correspondence with a raven in future.

Thor Odinson :)

How the fuck were you supposed to find a raven to reply with? You shook your head, tearing the letter to pieces and taking it into the bathroom where you flushed it down the toilet. You looked at your watch and resolved that you had two hours before you had to meet Thor. That was plenty of time to eat leftover pizza and watch How I Met Your Mother. How would you explain your absence to Bucky though? You would have already told him by now that you were going to research on infinity stones. There was no way you could get that past him, right?

-

“Thor, for the last time; I don’t have the time nor the inclination to find and train a raven for this.” You groaned, leaning against the hood of one of Tony’s cars

Thor looked indignant “We must be discreet.”

You rolled your eyes “Yeah, because a raven screams discretion.”

He shook his head “Enough. What news have you on Santana and Henson?”

You pulled the flip phone out of your back pocket and passed it to Thor. “They replied in the early hours of this morning, agreeing to meet with us on the east coast in two days. I gave them your phone number for future contact. I think we should go tomorrow and sweep the area; check they haven’t set any traps. These guys are serious, we’d be idiots to go in blind.”

“Tomorrow.” Thor agreed, passing you the phone as he mulled something over in his mind

“What is it?”

He twirled his hands nervously and avoided eye contact. “I think it would be wise to distance yourself from Barnes until this over.”

You felt a weight drop into your stomach. “Why? Do you think I can’t pull this off?”

“I am in no doubt of your skills, Y/N. However you and Barnes are extremely close, and I think it would pain you to keep this from him.”

“It would pain me to be away from him as well, Thor.”

He smiled and shook his head “There will be plenty of time for you both to spend together when this is done, but for now you should be careful. We are doing this for Stark, not for ourselves.”

You nodded heavily. He was right; as much as it was going to hurt, you needed to back away from Bucky for a while to help save Tony from the demons of his past.

-

The past week had gone by in a terrible blur; you found undercover work taxing enough without trying to keep it from everyone. You would leave so early in the morning that nobody was awake, and arrive back at such random intervals that nobody would know you were there. It was torture. All you wanted to do was tell the team all about it; you wanted to moan to Nat about how Henson and Santana had automatically assumed that you and Thor were a couple, so that meant you had to pretend to be one which was embarrassing for everyone involved; you wanted to laugh with Sam and Clint about how Santana wore far too much aftershave and was covered in so much fake tan that he was practically a carrot; and you wanted to ask Steve how you should handle this strategically, because he was the one you always went to for guidance in these situations. But most importantly of all, you wanted to tell Bucky how much you missed him.

Bucky had been much harder to avoid than the rest of the team; when you walked into the building he would always be waiting outside your door to see you with that agonisingly perfect smile on his face. You were running out of excuses about why you couldn’t talk to him, and quite frankly you didn’t have the will to put him off for much longer. This mission had better come to a close, and fast. Thankfully, tomorrow was the day the transaction would be completed; you and Thor had to go to a restaurant (one not too far from the compound, actually) and have dinner with Henson and Santana. While you dined, the valet would drive your car to a garage on the other side of town to fill with the goods so that by desert everything would be ready to go.

You and Thor had argued over how the transaction should be handled; he had wanted to take them down once and for all to bring an end to their chaotic deeds. You had told him that, for now, it was more important to get a hold of the weapons. Besides, now that you had both established a relationship with them it would be easier to set a trap later. As you both pulled up outside the restaurant in your eveningwear, you felt a little anxious. “Thor?”

“Yes?” He asked, straightening his tie

“Are you sure we can pull this off?”

He turned to you and smiled kindly “There is no doubt in my mind.”

You had every intention to reply, but before you knew it your door was being opened for you and you were both walking into the building arm in arm. You took in a deep breath and closed your eyes. It was going to be fine. Everything was going to go smoothly.

-

Bucky had been hesitant to accept the invitation to dinner he had received earlier that day, but he had attended on the grounds that he needed something to cheer him up. He lifted a glass of water to his lips and tried to look as though he was invested in the conversation going on at the other end of the table. If he was being completely honest, he hardly knew any of the people he was dining with; it was a birthday meal for Greg, the guy Bucky had been hanging out with a little recently from his book club. Greg, it turned out, was not much fun to be around when alcohol was involved. Lifting his sixth glass of scotch to his lips, Greg slurred the beginnings of another story nobody particularly wanted to hear.

Bucky found his gaze drifting through the room, taking in the different dishes of food and discussions around him. He had been particularly engrossed in lip reading a conversation between two men when he saw it out of the corner of his eye; the edge of your blue dress.

Everybody has a little black dress, Buck.” You had told him some weeks ago while you were getting ready to go out “But the real secret is to have an elegant blue one,”

He directed his gaze to the table you were seated at and couldn’t stop himself gaping in disbelief. It was definitely you, no doubt about it. He could distinctly make out your profile from across the room; you looked a little anxious, underneath the table your leg bounced up and down so violently it shook the table. A hand reached across and covered yours, in an instant your leg stopped shaking and you donned a perfect mask of composure. Bucky looked over to your dining partner and died a little inside as he recognised Thor sat opposite you with a smile. What the hell was going on? His stomach twisted unpleasantly. He knew exactly what was going on. It all made sense now; your near-constant avoidance of him over the past week; how much time you had been spending with Thor on ‘research’. You were cheating on him.

Bucky was about to walk over to the two of you and demand an explanation when a strangely familiar orange man and a relatively pale by comparison woman waltzed over to your table and embraced the two of you. As you embraced the woman your eyes met Bucky’s over her shoulder and you jolted in panic.

-

Shit. Shit. Shit! What the hell was Bucky doing here? And who the hell was he with? You quickly tore your gaze away, painting on a fake smile as you all took your seats and began to exchange pleasantries. You swiftly kicked Thor underneath the table and inclined your head ever so slightly towards Bucky, who was staring at the four of you in bewilderment. Thor’s eyes widened so much you were briefly concerned that they would fall out of his head before he began choking on his drink. Miss Michelle Henson- who had been flirting terribly with Thor all goddamned week- hit him delicately on the back, her exquisite features twisting into a delicate mask of concern. “Are you okay?” She asked, her voice as smooth as velvet

“He’s fine,” You assured, swatting away Santana’s orange hand as it tried to rest on your knee underneath the table

The man made an indignant noise and sipped from his wine glass, grimacing at the unpleasant bouquet. You picked up your menu and held it in front of your face, beckoning Thor to join you behind it. He raised an eyebrow, face still flushed from coughing, and ducked behind the menu with you. Henson and Santana looked at the two of you in confusion. “Do you mind?” You asked, impatiently gesturing between yourself and Thor “We just need a minute.”

They exchanged a look and reluctantly turned away. Thor peeked over the top of the menu and briefly locked gazes with Bucky, who raised an eyebrow at the pair of you before Thor ducked back behind the refuge of the menu again. “What is he doing here?” You mouthed

I have no idea!” Thor mouthed back, looking more than a little perturbed

You eyed Bucky from behind the menu, who waved at you painfully. Shit. “What do we do?

Why must I be the one with the solutions?! He is your associate!

Associate? He isn’t some guy I say hi to in the street! I’m in love with him for crying out loud!

Double shit. Thor smiled as the realisation of what you had just admitted flowered across your face. You were in love with him. “I’m in love with him…” You whispered to yourself in bewilderment

Michelle peeked at the two of you over her slender shoulder. “Is everything alright?”

You flashed what you hoped looked like a dazzling smile and nodded. “Fine, thank you Michelle; I was just telling Thor that I-”

“Thor?” Santana asked, turning into the conversation “What is that, a nickname?”

You gave a short laugh and shook your head, trying to think on your feet. “Well we saw a woman in the street earlier today who was convinced that he wa-”

“Good evening,” A familiar voice said from behind you, loaded with rage

Oh please no. You turned in you seat to see Bucky stood behind you, looking very hurt. How on earth were you going to talk your way out of this? He looked around the table and crossed his arms “Anyone want to tell me what the hell is going on?”

Everyone exchanged a look; two men at the table next to you took a sudden interest in events and didn’t bother to hide their gaze. Santana gasped and pointed at Bucky “You! I remember you!”

“I’m sure this man is not whoever you’re thinking of, Mr Santana.” You panicked, kicking Bucky lightly in the shin

A group of women at the table behind you nudged each other discreetly and nodded in your direction. Bucky crinkled his brow and regarded Santana “Who the hell is this bastard?”

“This is the bastard who had his leg broken by you last year,” Santana growled, his orange skin turning red “twice.”

Thor groaned and threw his head into his hands as Bucky frowned and waved a dismissive hand at the man. “Whatever, I don’t care about that.” He turned his gaze to you and Thor who were both on the verge of banging your heads against the table “What I do care about though, is why the hell you are on a date with my girlfriend. Anyone care to explain? Thor, perhaps?”

“Barnes,” Thor said, regaining some composure “you are mistaken-”

Henson gasped and stood up from her chair upon studying Thor closely “It’s a goddamned set up! They’re a part of the Avengers!”

Bucky raised an eyebrow “What do you mean a set up?”

Michelle fished around in her bag and pulled a small gun out of it. Shit. You looked at Thor who had discreetly stuck his hand out to summon Mjolnir while you slowly started to reach for the gun you had strapped to your leg. “Steven, we’ve been compromised. We need to leave, now.” She hissed, dragging him out of his seat by the sleeve of his dinner jacket

You got a solid grip on your gun and tore it from its holster; you didn’t want this to end in a shootout, but there was no way you could let them get away from this. Without them, there was no hope of reclaiming Tony’s weapons. “If it’s all the same to you, I’d really prefer it if the two of you stayed.” You said as coolly as you could, sipping from your glass of water with your gun pointed directly at the other woman “After all, dinner really isn’t the same without company,”

A sudden crash came from the window as Mjolnir flew through it into Thor’s waiting palm. A woman sat near where the window had been let out a sudden scream. “Let’s not make a meal of this,” The woman smiled sweetly, aiming the gun at Bucky “I would hate for anyone to get hurt.”

Bucky squared his jaw and stared at the woman in defiance as your heart leapt into your mouth. You looked at him out of the corner of your eye and felt a nervous sweat creep up the back of your neck. “Let me make one thing clear, Miss Henson.” You said, desperately trying to stop the slight tremor in your hand “If you cause any civilian casualties today, you will be tried and prosecuted in a court of law for your actions; but if you so much as touch this man standing next to me, I will eviscerate you.”

She scoffed, trying to maintain her composure even though it was clear she had lost it a few seconds ago. Her gun now pointed in your direction. “And if I decide to kill you instead?”

“Then the outcome will still be the same,” Bucky said, stepping towards her menacingly “I can promise you that.”

She and Santana exchanged a glance and nodded before she slowly placed the gun down on the table. “A wise choice.” Thor said, grinning at you as he stepped forward to secure them

-

After the rest of the team had been called in to apprehend the car full of explosives and Henson and Santana had been formally arrested, you found yourself stood in the women’s bathroom staring at yourself in the mirror; you looked tired, and pale even by your standards. You heard the door open and ducked your head, not wanting to talk to Bucky just yet. “So the legends are true,” Tony said, walking into view with a smile “the ladies bathroom really does smell nicer.”

You rolled your eyes and turned off the running faucet beneath you. “There’s also a portal to another dimension behind the mirror,”

“That, I didn’t know about.”

Tony sat on the counter beside the sink as you turned to grab a paper towel. “Y/N?”

“Yeah?”

“Thank you,” He said truthfully “what the two of you have done is just sickeningly thoughtful, and it makes me seriously re-think the Christmas gifts I’ve bought for the two of you.”

You smiled, tossing your paper towel into the bin with a shrug “We just didn’t want to drag you back into the past; I figured it would only upset you.”

Tony shook his head and hopped down off the counter  “What upsets me is that neither of you told me what was going on; if something had gone dreadfully wrong and one of you had died just for the sake of protecting my feelings-”

“We’re a team, Tony. You’d do the same for us,”

He smiled and put an arm around your shoulder “Come on, kid. Let’s go back to the compound and order enough pizza to make us all sick for a week.”

“Sounds great, but there’s something I’ve got to do first.”

-

Bucky was the only one left in the restaurant when you walked in; all the diners had been vacated and the staff sent home. He was sat at a table staring intently at a silver fork. You wrung your hands in front of you nervously. What were you going to say? Summoning your bravery, you walked into the room lightly knowing he would hear your tread.

Sure enough, he turned in his chair and smiled at you tiredly “Hey doll,” He whispered, standing and closing the distance between you

You looked up into his eyes and felt a rush of love and fear fill your veins. “I’m sorry,” You said without drawing breath “for everything; I wanted to tell you, I really did but I was worried that if I did then I would somehow screw it all up. And then you were nearly shot and I-”

Bucky held up his hand to silence you and smiled “I’m sorry too; I should have known you were undercover when I saw you. I guess I was just worried that you and Thor were- well, you know.”

You laughed a little and shook your head, pulling him into a tight embrace. “Hey Bucky?” You whispered

“Yes?”

“I realised something earlier when I saw you giving Thor and I the death stare.”

“And what was that?”

You took in a deep breath and replied “That I love with you,”


You felt a chuckle vibrate through his chest and looked up, feeling a little hurt that he thought your feelings for him were amusing. He met your eyes and smiled, brushing his thumb across your cheekbone as he brought his lips to your ear, breathing in the scent of your perfume as he whispered the words “I love you too.”

Two Minutes (part 2)

Sooo - a recent discussion with @panickypaladin brought a level of this to my attention that I never would have thought of and frankly - it’s terrible.  Like, heartbreaking terrible.

So of course I had to swing my story to follow that route.  All the thanks to them for this next part.  And to @theprojectava for the original picture of Ryou that lit the fire under me to write anything at all about this in the first place.

part 1 if you need it

———-

He wasn’t Takashi.

He would never be Takashi.

But if Takashi could pilot anything - Ryou was the one that could build it.

They walked around the ship once it was done, closer to it than Takashi had been up until this point.  Ryou though - Ryou had been living inside its guts for the past year and a half.  He’d never been so proud of himself, of something he’d had a hand in creating and Taka was glowing at him, that warm, deep, water-drowning glow that only Taka could glow.  Ryou felt like a helium balloon, floating along next to his twin, feet barely touching the ground, exhausted from far too many months without enough sleep and almost giddy at the same time.  He watched as Taka lifted his hand, laid just the pads of his fingertips against some of the paneling of the vessel, soft and reverent the way they both touched machines and he watched with satisfaction as his brother then stepped forward, laid his whole hand against that sun warmed ceramic, palm flat, soaking in the heat of the giant structure as if he could soak in its personality and essence, eyes closed, entire body going still.  Ryou felt like a proud father or… or a proud older brother as Taka admired the ship without words.

“What her name?” Taka asked finally, in that voice of his that was half dreaming, half awake excitement and Ryou grinned.  Because of course the ship had an official name - but  - Ryou always named his ships private names he never shared, a secret promise between just the two of them, an intimacy that only Taka was allowed into when he piloted one of them. 

“Little Magpie.”

Taka turned his head with a laugh, edges of his eyes wrinkling, and Ryou grinned back.

“Little Magpie,” his twin repeated softly after a moment, looking back at the ship with love.

The ship that would travel to the edge of the solar system, as far as mankind had ever dared reach and then come safely back home.  A bridge across the distance of space.  And the Shirogane brothers were going to make it there.  Together.

Ryou wasn’t the pilot his brother was.  No one was.  But Ryou had a way with machines that was as close to love as human hands could carve and when the twins had joined the Garrison, Taka’s path had gone up and Ryou’s had gone down.  Down into the depths of tangling wires and piping, down into circuits and motherboards and air tubes and compressors, down into the dark depths of ships where welding was a melody and the groan of plastic and ceramic and steel was a deep whale’s song of harmony or warning.  While Taka had been busy knocking every single flight simulation to ribbons because it couldn’t keep up with him, Ryou had been twisting and adjusting and simply creating things that the Garrison had never dreamed for its ships.  They’d both graduated with highest honors.  The averted Venus disaster they both wore woven into the ribbons on their dress uniform’s chest had been Taka’s impossible piloting to get them in and Ryou’s spit and bubble gum save of the giant gas drilling platform’s orbital decompressor.  And, while Ryou hadn’t been along for the Io Miracle, he’d been the one that had just recently installed the changes to the stabilizers in the ship that Taka had piloted in and saved the plunging research station workers with.  The Garrison, the conglomerates that ran the Garrison, knew when they had not one but two geniuses inhouse and, young or not, still untried in so many ways or not, there was no end to the possibilities they provided for the twins. Takashi Shirogane was a rising star - but he was binary, because Ryou rose just as fast on the opposite horizon.  Ryou even had his own team, the pride of a real, honest to God, own team, that answered to no one but him, that he was entirely responsible for, and more projects to chose from for the whole of them than he could ever hope to complete.  The private sector was hungry for him too but -

but Taka was with the Garrison - and Ryou couldn’t imagine leaving his brother behind and going elsewhere.

He couldn’t imagine creating ships his twin wouldn’t make dance like dragonflies on the surface of a stormy pond like love given physical form.

And now they were going to Kerberos.  Taka - and the ship Ryou had helped build just for him.  Just for this mission.  That he’d poured every advance he could think of, every safety feature, every gift of speed and grace and power and strength he could pour into every inch of it, down to the smallest torque of a bolt.  His team wasn’t the only team that had worked on the ship - but Ryou had gone over ever inch of it until he was satisfied.  The shuttle was his ship and his brother was going to take it into the pages of history. It was the greatest gift he could give his twin.  So far.  He had more plans -  but first, Kerberos.  Taka turned eyes that held stars in them already, on him and his smile said it all.  They were laughing when they hugged, twins about to punch their way right through the impossible into forever.

Five months later, Ryou was in the command center when the feed from Little Magpie went dead. 

The ship he’d sent his only brother into space in. 

The ship he’d built to keep their dreams alive. 

The ship he’d told his brother would never fail him.


The entire mission control crew waited a full forty-eight hours - hoping…

But Little Magpie never spoke again.

Matsuno sextuplet combo & pairing nicknames in Japanese fandom

Part of the fun of the Osomatsusan series are the six main brother protagonists, who all have different personalities which clash in different ways! Though a lot of segments feature all six together, more contained skits will often put the brothers together two at a time and let their personalities drive the plot and humor of the skit. And because there are six of them, there are total of 15 different ways to mix them up. As a result, fans (as well as official sources) have come up with various nicknames for these sextuplet combos.

Fans of BLmatsu will often refer to their ships with these nicknames on Twitter and  in Pixiv tags. However, these combo names are used in non-shipping contexts as well, so even though there is also some misconception among Japanese fans, the names don’t necessarily imply a romantic pairing (ships in particular use name portmanteaus ordered in certain ways; skip to the end of this post for a few more notes of explanation about Japanese ship-naming conventions.)

Osomatsu & Karamatsu (OsoKara, KaraOso)

長兄松 (Chokeimatsu)

“Eldest-Brother Matsu”

Straight-forward enough. Osomatsu and Karamatsu are the two eldest brothers (first and second, respectively).

This combo nickname was used by Namco Najatown for their “Osomatsusan in Nanjatown” collaboration promotion. Thus, it is considered to be an official nickname.

Osomatsu & Choromatsu (OsoChoro, ChoroOso)

速度松 (Sokudomatsu)

“Speedmatsu”

In reference to a wordplay on Osomatsu and Choromatsu’s names, contrasting Oso (遅い, osoi/slow, late) and Choro (チョロチョロ, chorochoro/darting about, moving rapidly).

Osomatsu & Ichimatsu  (OsoIchi, IchiOso)

パーカー松 (Parkamatsu)

“Parkamatsu”

In reference to the fact that Osomatsu and Ichimatsu are the two brothers who have fewer alternate outfits than the others and are the ones most likely to be wearing their signature color-coded sweatshirts.

Osomatsu & Jyushimatsu (OsoJyu, JyuOso)

馬鹿松、いちご松 (Bakamatsu, Ichigomatsu)

“Idiotmatsu”/“Strawberrymatsu”

Oso & Jyushi are arguably the two stupidest brothers of the group according to their official character profiles, which describes Osomatsu as an idiot having the mental maturity of a 6th grader and Jyushimatsu as “exceptionally cheerful, exceptionally stupid”. An alternate nickname for them is Ichigomatsu, meaning strawberry, but also a pun on their birth order (ichi/one, go/five).

Osomatsu & Todomatsu (OsoTodo, TodoOso)

紅松 (Benimatsu)

“Redmatsu”

Refers to Oso and Todo’s similar image colors of red and pink, respectively.

Karamatsu & Choromatsu (KaraChoro, ChoroKara)

水陸松 (Suirikumatsu)

“Water-and-Land Matsu”

Refers to Choro and Kara’s image colors of green and blue, reminiscent of land and sea.

Karamatsu & Ichimatsu (KaraIchi, IchiKara)

色松 (Iromatsu)

“Colormatsu”

A pun on the pairing name KaraIchi (カラ一) which looks identical to the Japanese katakana rendering of the English word, “color” (カラー, karaa). Iro is the Japanese word for color.

Karamatsu & Jyushimatsu (KaraJyushi, JyuKara)

筋肉松 (Kinnikumatsu)

“Musclematsu”

Karamatsu is arguably the most conventionally masculine of the bunch, as well a “nikushokukei” (肉食系, lit. a carnivore, meaning a “man’s man” who aggressively pursues women). Jyushimatsu on the other hand is the most physically active and athletically gifted brother. Thus, they are the “power-kei” matsus. This nickname is also reinforced by Jyushimatsu’s “Muscle, muscle! Hustle, hustle!” catchphrase.

Karamatsu & Todomatsu (KaraTodo, TodoKara)

材木松 (Zaimokumatsu)

“Timbermatsu”

Karamatsu and Todomatsu are the two brothers whose names are a wordplay on species of trees (唐松/karamatsu is a Japanese Larch and 椴松/todomatsu is a Sakhalin fir).

Choromatsu & Ichimatsu  (ChoroIchi, IchiChoro)

年中松 (Nenchumatsu)

“Middlematsu”

A reference to Choromatsu and Ichimatsu being the two middle brothers (third and fourth, respectively.)

This nickname has been used officially in online promotion for the “Osomatsusan in Nanjatown” collaboration at Namco Najatown.

Choromatsu & Jyushimatsu (ChoroJyu, JyuChoro)

若葉松 (Wakabamatsu)

“Young-Leaf Matsu”

In reference to their color combination of green and yellow. In Japan, newly-minted drivers will attach yellow and green arrow feather-shaped stickers to their cars called wakaba-marks.

[Also, on a purely personal note, coming from Attack On Titan fandom, I’m a huge fan of the Eruri ship, which incidentally are also the characters voiced by Kamiya Hiroshi and Ono Daisuke in that series. The fact that those characters are represented by similar color schemes and feather motifs, the wakaba has another level of symbolism that I enjoy a lot, LOL.]

Choromatsu & Todomatsu (ChoroTodo, TodoChoro)

サイバー松 (Cybermatsu)/ツッコミ松 (Tsukkomimatsu)

The nickname Cybermatsu derives from the fact that Choromatsu and Todomatsu are the two brothers who were initially shown with electrical gadgets in promotional art (laptops, smartphones). They are alternately referred to as Tsukkomimatsu, since they are the ones most likely to be playing the Straight Man in contrast to their other brothers’ funny antics.

Ichimatsu & Jyushimatsu  (IchiJyushi, JyushiIchi)

数字松 (Suujimatsu)/電池松 (Denchimatsu)

“Numbermatsu”/“Batterymatsu”

The Suujimatsu nickname refers to the fact that Ichimatsu and Jyushimatsu are the two brothers whose names are a wordplay on numbers (rendered in kanji as 一 ichi/one and 十四 jyuushi/fourteen, respectively. It’s also notable that they are the only two whose names are written entirely in kanji!) Their alternate nickname comes from the 十 and 一 in their names resembling plus and minus symbols, suggestive of their polar-opposite personalities, yet close bond.

Ichimatsu & Todomatsu (IchiTodo, TodoIchi)

110松 (Ichitomatsu) 

“110Matsu”

Another wordplay on numbers, this time with 一 (ichi/one) and ト (“to”, an alternate pronunciation of ten.)

Jyushimatsu & Todomatsu (JyuTodo, TodoJyu)

末松 (Suematsu)

“Endmatsu” or perhaps “Youngmatsu”

In reference to Jyushimatsu and Todomatsu being the two youngest brothers (fifth and sixth, respectively.) Todomatsu is the family 末っ子 (suekko, “youngest child”), which is an alternate reading of the 末/matsu kanji (which means “end [of a series of numbers, etc]”.)

This nickname was used officially along with Chokeimatsu (OsoKara) and Nenchumatsu (ChoroIchi) for Namco Nanjatown’s promotion for the “Osomatsusan in Nanjatown” collaboration.

A few notes about shipping names and terms (BLmatsu warning)

Keep reading

It might just be me but....

I kind of want Adrinette and Djwifi to hook up as the power ot4.

We know the two ships sail themselves, plus Nino crushing on Mari, and Alyanette can totally be read in subtext. Nino and Alya to Adrien might vary, but I’m all for Chalyanette and unopposed to adrinino. Because I’m trash and I feel the need to sway you, have some headcanons about alyadrininette (proposed ship name):

It started with double dates, but then the chemistry between them all heated up, and after Alya and Mari almost made out at a sleepover, they decided to sit their boyfriends down, surprised to learn that the boys had nearly done the same.

They got together officially after that, and there was a lot of heated make out sessions in broom closets and places whenever one of them could get their hands on another.

They live together in a big apartment near the Dupain-Cheng bakery. Mari has a studio for working on designs (which her significant others are more than happy to model for her) of which Alya has a portion where she keeps a cork board with her leads on articles. Nino and Adrien split the smaller room which doubles as Adrien’s office and Nino’s space for DJ things.

Adrien had a special bed custom made for them so no one has to worry about falling off. Nino is a blanket hog, so he sleeps with a separate blanket while the others tend to share.

None of them are graceful risers. When the alarm goes off, they all groan in unison and try to ignore it until Adrien finally mumbles something unintelligible and gets up. From there, he has to start the coffee to lure his partners out of bed.

Alya and Mari are openly affectionate with each other, but they never get tired of making their boys drool.

Tom and Sabine weren’t surprised that Marinette brought home Alya or Adrien (they were a little surprised by Nino) they were surprised that she brought home Alya AND Adrien and Nino. But they were happy that she was happy, and they loved those kids anyway, now they just had more reason to spoil them with affection and pastries.

Alya’s parents took it in stride because apparently Alya’s great aunt was polyamorous too or something. Her mother offered her a recipe book that’s great for serving larger groups.

Nino’s parents were surprised that Nino wasn’t straight, but his father patted him on the back for landing the hottest boy in Paris and the prettiest girls in school.

Gabriel was furious when Adrien announced that he had two girlfriends and a boyfriend, but after Adrien refused to back down, Gabriel announced it to the press, playing a supportive father. Thanks to that, his company got more press than ever, and he made things hard on the group for a while. The press had a field day trying to get them to talk.

After that, Adrien moved out.

His lovers moved in with him, one at a time, but eventually they were all settled. It took a long time to find a rhythm. To figure out how to manage the budget, and the housework, and Adrien and Marinette’s superhero responsibilities, and how to share the counter space in the bathroom, and how to keep the toothbrushes separate, and ‘I swear to God, I fed Plagg like three times today, someone else can get the damn cheese!’, and ‘Who ate the last cookie? This isn’t cool guys, I’m pretty sure it wasn’t Tikki so ‘fess up!’

Marinette becomes a famous fashion designer like they always knew she would. Alya became a famous investigative journalist, much more careful with her facts now, but still writing biting exposés as promised. Nino got his dream job of DJing. He started off working at clubs, but he eventually got a position as the DJ of his favorite radio station. Adrien continued modeling, but after his trust fund kicked in, he stopped working for his father almost entirely, choosing to model for Mari instead. He got a dual degree in physics and business, helping Mari run their company, Lady’s Noir.

Adrien is very big on cuddling and hugs. He will drape himself all over Mari or Nino because they don’t protest, but he doesn’t do it to Alya as often because he knows his hair makes her ticklish.

Nino and Alya are fiercely protective of their baes when the two are tired from crime fighting. They will tuck the two into bed and glare at anyone giving them a funny look on the streets.

They have a ton of video games, and the play together a lot with varying degrees of mercy toward each other. Marinette is unbeatable.

Mari and Alya are super ticklish, and in attempts to tickle them, the boys have gotten punched.

They have a civil union, making sure they all have the medical and legal rights to each other because you never know what could happen, and they’d rather have their loved ones there.

Alya has pet names for them. Mari is Sweetheart. Adrien is Darling. Nino is Honey.

Think about it.
