I’ve seriously lost count of how many times I’ve watched this ending, but god I still keep finding bits and pieces that make it worth praising. Look at this.
They both start dancing, Yuuri looks like he has yet to notice Victor has join him, while Victor appears in a far away corner, it’s like he just decided he needed to join the dance.
Then we see how Victor’s following each and every step, and Yuuri… well he’s to into the dance to acknowledge Victor’s presence, so he keeps on dancing.
Following the sequence, Victor is closer now, and Yuuri has already notice the other man which is dancing along with him. And you see, be it in his posture or his expression Yuuri starts to dance every step with a new gain confidence, and it’s that little smirk he tries to hide which gives it away, because he’s happy. And I know he might have forgotten everything that happened that night, BUT GOD AT THAT MOMENT THIS BOY MIGHT HAVE BEEN THANKING THE GODS HE WAS BE ABLE TO HAVE THE CHANCE TO DANCE LIKE THIS WITH NO OTHER THAN VICTOR NIKIFOROV.
Now look, Victor’s closer to the camera, and Yuuri’s following behind, both dancing to a specific set of steps, trying to keep along with each other, they start to get more and more coordinated.
After that, they finally get to stand in front of one another. And I still can’t get over the fact Yuuri’s trying to act like the bull (look at his eyes and they way his hands are mimicking the horns of the bull, he’s ready to charge), while Victor is of course the Toreador, just staring straight at Yuuri, with that confident look, like…
“Oh come on boy, I’m ready.”
They are definitely feeling it, no one in the dance floor can’t compete with these two.
THEN IT’S TIME FOR THE FINAL PIECE. AND I JUST ADORE THIS SEQUENCE OF STEPS. LOOK HOW VICTOR IS BOWING HIS HEAD, LIKE HE’S GREETING HIS DANCE COMPANION, AND SILENTLY ASKING FOR PERMISSION TO HAVE THEIR NEXT DANCE, TO WHICH YUURI JUST SMILES LIKE HE’S ACCEPTING THE OFFER, THEY ARE PREPARING THEMSELVES TO START A MORE INTIMATE DANCE.
AND AFTER THAT WE HAVE THEM HOLDING EACH OTHER, AND IT’S LIKE YUURI’S TAKING THE LEAD.
HE IS THE ONE HOLDING VICTOR. HE IS GUIDING THEM BOTH. HIS HAND SLIGHTLY HOLDING VICTOR’S FACE, AND LEG. THE DELICACY IN THEIR STANCE IS JUST MIND BLOWING.
Which it all leads to this final scene. The closeness in their touch, the fondness and warmth in their smiles, I’ll never get tired of it.
After a dance like this, who wouldn’t fall in love?
This is so gross I’m sorry… I had that stupid idea to draw a chibi of Decans if he ever gotten infected by a parasite… I had to design that gross colorful trash… Decans wouldn’t be the best host for a parasite since his soul and body is really damaged but I was kinda curious of how my silly bean would turn out if he was wearing flashy color. I’m kinda proud of the result… Dang… he looks like an exhibitionist, I cri.
what i find really cool about the dance pics is that you can really tell who the characters are by their dancing? like, yurio dances with a lot of anger and without a lot of finesse - he does a lot of cool stuff, sure, his body can do all sorts of things - but he doesn’t have any beat or flow. he’s just making his body do impressive things to impress, he’s not giving a good overrall experience. that’s something he’s struggled with in his skating, where he did amazing technically but had no feeling behind the routine. chris, of course, uses a pole. he’s a very strong man, proud of his body, and very sexual. pole dancing really highlights his skating, and his interactions with the other skaters so far. he’s got nothing to hide. then viktor - viktor is clearly moving his body with a lot of finesse and style, but he looks like he’s still on the ice, not really dancing. he throws his legs out like one would during a routine, poses his hands in the same way, doesnt use his hips. its got class, sure, but its not super dance-y. at the same time, it’s not nearly as serious as his skating can be - he’s there to have fun. viktor wants to have a good time, and dancing with yuri, he is. and speaking of yuri: he, of course, dances like his body is the music itself. just like how viktor described his skating. on top of that, interestingly enough, he seems to go along with the styles everyone else is doing. he breakdances with yurio, pole dances with chris, dances like he’s doing couples skating with viktor. going along with the flow - that’s something that yuri has admitted to struggling with, particularly in regards to choosing his own music for his routines. even though he started the dance-off, he still went along with the styles that everyone else chose. it’s really cool to see all of that reflected in the pics
god I’m fucking laughing we thought the first time Victor really noticed Yuri was after he posted the video but nope it was when Yuri got fucking smashed, had a dance off that included him vs Yurio, hitting the pole with Chris, and dancing with Victor himself. …And then it looks like he humped Victor’s leg a bit and was like drunkenly MY FAMILY RUNS A HOT SPRING COME HERE SOMETIME ALSO PLEASE COME BE MY COACH :D
And Yuri didn’t remember any of it, Drunk!Yuri came through for his sober self.
okay yes yes yes but Sirius Black and Lily Evans being bros at Hogwarts
Eleven year old Sirius trying to juggle with oranges he
stole at breakfast. He accidentally throws one right at Lily Evans’s nose. She
takes her new wand, waves it a bit and accidentally gives him horse hooves
This is how they become bros
Thirteen year old Sirius black getting his ass whipped by
thirteen year old Lily Evans in wizard chess
Lily and Sirius partnered for charms where they’re meant to
be summoning cushions and it just ends in them starting a class pillow fight
Fourteen year old Sirius taking really ugly close-up photos
of lily while she sleeps and she wakes up like sirIUS I’m GOING TO SHOVE THAT
CAMERA DOWN YOUR THROAT YOU PIECE OF SHIT
Sirius and lily taking the piss out of James because of his
stupid hair thing and his freaking walk that looks like he’s dancing
‘it’s like he’s prancing or something’ ‘yes lily.. He really is prancing.
Rather like a deer I would go as far
to say, don’t you agree Evans?’
Lily and Sirius sliding down Hogwarts banisters screaming
Twelve year old losers want to prove that they’re not scared
of the forbidden forest so they both go out there in the middle of the night
like: ‘first one to come out is a WUSS’
It ends with McGonagall finding both of them in her dressing
gown half way up a tree, with lily writing her will on a piece of bark and
Sirius waving a large stick screaming ‘THIS WAS A MISTAKE’ repeatedly
Drunk Lily in sixth year and an even drunker Sirius Black
gives her piggyback across the grounds while she stretches her arms wide and
‘Mr Black, Miss Evans, your homework answers are exactly the
same, I suspect one of you copied the other. My money is on Mr Black’
‘PROFESSOR IT WASN’T ME I DON’T DESERVE DENTENTION IT WAS
FREAKIN LILY I SWEAR’
It was Lily but who would believe him
He got detention and Lily laughed about it for two weeks.
Lily taking toast up to Sirius when he doesn’t wake up in
time for breakfast
Sirius with his head on Lily’s stomach watching as Remus
gets utterly thrashed by Mary in Gobstones while yelling unhelpful things like:
‘YOU SHOULD TRY AND WIN THIS ROUND’ and ‘PUT HER SHIRT OVER HER HEAD AND STEAL
HER STONES YOU’LL FOR SURE WIN’
For her birthday Lily gets a shit-ton of daises because
(ironically) they’re her favourite flower and she grins because she knows
exactly who they’re from
Mulciber calls Lily a Mudblood at the end of sixth year and
Sirius Black emerges from nowhere and punches him so hard in the mouth he loses
four teeth and his gums forever look a little lopsided
Being partnered for potions like:
‘this goes in here’ ‘no it doesn’t’ ‘LET’S FIGHT IT OUT’
It all ends in them wrestling on the table while Remus
laughs, Peter gawks and James feel conflicted about who to cheer for
Sirius getting a letter from his mum and when Lily reads it, then picks it up and throws it into the fire before saying ‘you’re more than
Lily refereeing him and James wand-sword fights like SIRIUS
YOU CAN’T JUST TAKE AWAY HIS GLASSES EVERY TIME BECAUSE THEN HE FALLS OFF THE
TABLE THAT’S CHEATING
Fourteen year old Sirius-no-one-is-better-at-pranking-than-me-Black
laughing his ass off when Lily makes the board disappear, flips a desk, breaks
a window by throwing a vase through it and turns a third of the class into rabbits
before climbing on James’s desk and screaming ‘FUCK GOBBLINS’ and prompts the
only reaction out of Professor Binn’s on record.
‘Black, late to class again I see. Probably doing your hair,
am I right?” “yes in fact you are Evans. I care about my appearance,
clearly you do not”
Lily flips him off and McGonagall is in disbelief because
she is head girl and Miss Evans I expected more.
‘Alright so there are goose feathers everywhere, which one
of you three did this?’ *both point simultaneously to James*
Sirius citing Lily as a source on his witches in the 1700’s
and by source he means she ranted to him for thirty minutes about the treatment
of witches by not only muggles but WIZARD MEN and he wrote it all down and
turned it in
Fifteen year old Lily really likes coffee but never knows
how to get it and Sirius showing her how to tickle the pair and OH MY GOD THIS
IS FANTASTIC and she hugs him and he sort of… stands there like so shocked
before wrapping his arms around her waist and his mother pretended like she didn’t
know who he was at Hogsmede yesterday but everything seems a little better now
‘Evans look over there’ *smears peanut butter down neck and
turns around pretending like he didn’t*
‘Oi Black look over here’ *produces scissors and threatens
to cut off his eyebrow while simultaneously throwing cornflakes *
They always talk each other up to their crushes like ‘yeah
Millie Sirius DOES have huge muscles’ and ‘James I heard that Lily has THREE
BOOBS. Evans would you stop kicKING ME PLEASE’
At graduation right after Sirius gets his certificate and he
grabs the magical megaphone like ‘SUCK IT EVANS I GRADUATED BEFORE YOU’ and
Lily’s all ‘Black that’s just because ‘B’ is before ‘E’’ but he’s too busy
yelling ‘THIS IS A SIGN I BLOODY KNEW I WAS SMARTER THAN YOU AND THE SAME GOES
FOR YOU MOONY’
Basically Lily and Sirius being bros at school and having
each-others backs is highly important u need to realize this
I don’t think some of y’all understand swing dancing is not easy and is so cute and fun and romantic and it involves a lot of lifts and is very fast and is usually seen as one of the more fun, flirtatious dances and I cannot believe that Matthew Daddario, out of all the possible types of dances, can swing dance like it literally makes me swoon how nerdy and adorable is he like swing dancing is like Danny and Sandy in Grease dancing with all the lifts and the spinning and the laughing and smiling like I want to swing dance with him so badly and do a hip lift with him and have him twirl me around and see him laugh and smile because he said people want to dance with him because he looks like he’s enjoying himself and I’m so emotional over this guys more emotional than I should be but Matthew Daddario can swing dance
