What is a legacy? It’s planting seeds in a garden you never get to see.

some reminders if we do get sana for s4:

  •  with all the islamophobia and xenophobia in the world at the moment (such as geert wilders, whose twitter banner literally is ‘stop islam’, being one of the leading candidates of the dutch election yesterday) a season with sana in the lead couldn’t have come at a better time tbh 
  • to people who think sana as s4 main is “rushed”: sana had a major subplot in s2, and she was involved in s3 (even if that was to a large extent to help isak’s development, sana and her religion was still important) so she’s not more rushed than any other character on the show imo 
  •  a season with sana would probably break some of the norms of the show which would be very interesting to see (for example, her backstory in s2 had to do with her family relations – how will the show solve that, when sana still lives at home?) 
  • apart from the boys, sana is probably the character who would give isak (and by extension, even) the most screen-time
  • on that note: the last season’s main is always ‘followed up’ in the next season (eva and jonas post-breakup in s2, noora coming back from london in s3)
  • RETURN OF THE GIRL SQUAD!!! 
  • sana is so wise and clever and perceptive and can you imagine how cool it would be to see a whole season from her point of view? 
  • also sana has such a tough exterior, so seeing what goes on when she lets her guard down? probably amazing and emotionally touching 
  • i know many of you want even for s4, and i get that, i really do… but whichever character julie has chosen, it’s probably with good reason, and we probably have an awesome season in store no matter what 
  • have faith in julie andem!! lord knows she’s earned it  

MY NOZOELIS

it’s not the most recent (from february 2017) but here’s some iwaoi!

i simply wanted to draw soft iwaoi and use a bunch of pretty colors, because i’m still a softie and also very weak

Otabeks cheeky friends in Almaty Headcanons!!

- amongst all his posters of famous Musicians and DJs and festival promos there’s at LEAST two or three glossy creaseless fullbody shots of the beautiful soldier eyed Yuri Plisetsky (his friends may or may not have bought for his birthday as a joke, but secretly knowing he’d love them and he does)

-when his cheeky friends in Almaty found out that Beka was finally going to be in the same competition bracket as his (exclusively) highly spoken of (super) crush, the (loving? friendly?) brutally teasing banter (kissy noises, heart eye emojis, birds and bees and protection talks) didn’t stop until Otabek was safely through airport customs.

-when he turns his phone back on after landing, however, theres a hundred new messages and a photoshop edit of Bekas face over a water bottle Plisetsky is drinking from with the caption “this could be you”

- when the candid snapshots of one Russian Ice Fairy straddling the motorcycle backseat of one Kazakh Hero spread across the internet like the sleet of a Siberian mid-winter blizzard, Otabeks friends absolutely lose it.

-every single social outlet of Otabeks (although few) blows up mental. His phone, his friends group chat, hundreds and hundreds of caps locked screaming, heart eyes, tongue winky faces, “FINALLY"s and various funny edits of the leaked photographs and the support makes Beka chuckle quietly, completely red faced, happy.

-Otabeks friends go over to the Altins home for a viewing party of the Grand Prix Final.

-like they do for every big competition. They’re always so proud of him (some of them say so some of them don’t but he knows they all are)

-although understandably upset for Beka, cannot help but continue to tease him about how his “boyfriend not only stole your gold, but ours as well ;)”

-they all go out for drinks when Otabek returns to Almaty, and force him to spill every detail about what happened between him and the Russian Tiger.

-when they hear he’s going back to visit St Petersburg in the new year, the group is almost thrown out of the bar for the raucous uproar that explodes between them.

i just like drawing jimin (photo cred)

Courfeyrac is the greatest defender of platonic kissing and physical affection in general and you can bet your ass that he kisses and cuddles and holds hands with every single one of his friends who is comfortable with it
