leave some for later

I don’t like to talk much about my personal life here you know?…

But I’ll try and make an exception today, because I feel like I really messed up last night…

shoosh pap pap shoosh

The dub of episode 12 was wonderful, but one line really stood out to me, as a summary of the unique format of the Yuri on Ice story and how it plays with the usual happy ending cliches. (It was in the sub as well, and it caught my eye there as well but something about hearing it made it a lot more interesting.)

“No tale is more compelling, than one that never ends.”

In context, it’s about JJ and Seung Gil Lee, two skaters who are in the prime of their career and whose subtle interactions with each other will continue long past the Grand Prix Final. After all, the Grand Prix is just the start of the skating season. There is so much left to do, and so many stories to be told on the sidelines of the greater Victor/Yuri arc. 

And the thing about skating is that it never stops. Individual skaters work through their careers, but then they coach or choreograph or inspire other younger skaters, who step into their places and continue refining the art. It’s a neverending story, one that only gets greater over time. There’s so much love for the immortality of the ice- the infinite and eternal possibility of greater things in the future- in the writing. No ends, no neatly tied up resolutions. Everything keeps going, and that perpetual motion is beautiful. 

Look at the story we get told with Yuri on Ice. It starts with two skaters in a standstill, trying to figure out how to move forward with their lives. Their victory is not winning a gold medal or getting married and having babies, it’s continuing with their careers, continuing to contribute to the eternal story. They don’t get to settle down, they get to be immortal.

Even if we get a season two, I don’t think we’ll ever get a cut and dried ending, where everyone waltzes into the sunset. That would be a betrayal of the story they’re trying to tell. It isn’t about finding happiness, it’s about progress, about inspiring each other to be better skaters and attaining happiness in the process. 

Maybe one of the main characters will retire, but certainly not permanently. There will always be the next generation in the wings to be tutored, a surprise comeback to be made. One more competition, one more year, one more medal or routine, all the way into forever. 

Not only is that sort of open ended storytelling uniquely poignant, it’s also perfect for a show that endeavors not just to tell a love story but to tell the story of an entire sport. Nothing ever stops, there is no final goal to reach, only an ever evolving conglomerate of beauty that every athlete contributes to. A happy ending for Yuri on Ice is an anti-ending, one forever that promises a more glorious future just around the corner.

Archie, Veronica, Kevin, Betty, You and Jughead were all sitting at a bench at school, you and Jughead were sitting next to each other, hands holding underneath the table just casually taking but you wanted a bit more intimate attention from your secret boyfriend. Getting up from the table and giving Jughead a quick look to follow you, you made up some excuse to leave, him doing the same a few minutes later. Meeting up in an empty classroom giving him a sweet kiss on his lips. Keeping your relationship a secret was difficult but it was also fun. Very fun.

hey, is there anyone that lives in the slc utah area or anywhere in northern utah that can take me and my cat in for the night?

I can’t add too many details because i can’t really think straight right now, but my roommate is threatening to hurt me and kill my cat (who is my emotional support animal) and I need to leave this house as soon as possible. I promise to not stay longer than a night, I just need to have somewhere safe to stay for now until i can figure out what I’m going to do next.

everyone, please enjoy some hope lovee <33

Another small bit of characterization the anime missed.

Today, I fucked up... by cleaning my son's room

I was cleaning my 6y.o. son’s room, and doing my annual purge of crap he’s managed to hoard. I have this big pile of stuff to throw out in the living room, when he comes in, pulls some stupid paper butterfly out of the trash pile and tells me I can’t throw this away because it was a present.

He goes to a lot of birthday parties and gets a lot of goodie bags with this sort of thing, so I tell him it’s junk and it’s going in the trash. Besides, it’s all bent up and I tell him (like a douche-dad) that if he values things he should take care of them.

He leaves, and some 5 minutes later he returns, visibly distraught (he’s clearly been thinking hard about this). He says “It was a present…for you.”

“For father’s day.”

I swear at that moment I heard every angel in heaven slow clapping.

On the list of things that were seriously considered but not done because a companion was in the room at the time, we have Fisto.

If it were just ED-E or Rex, or if the companion of the moment were Arcade or Cass or Veronica or even Raul, then maybe he would’ve gone for it. But poor Boone’s brain doesn’t need to be scarred that badly.

Hey, I absolutely adore your writing and I have read all of your fics multiple times. I would just love if you could tell me what are some of your favourite Malec fanfics? So basically if you could do a rec list of sorts. Thank you and once again you are very talented hope to see more from your Malec wedding planner au fic.

ok but this is so nice tho?? also i’m working on the au i promise, i promise. i finally posted the lightwood family dinner scene i’ve been futzing around with for way too long and the next part is where the malec starts to pick up so i can’t wait tbh!!

but more importantly, recs! so i read an enormous amount of malec fic and i always mean to do a rec post but then i.. don’t. i’m sure i’m leaving out some that i’m going to kick myself for later but this has already taken way too long, so here are some of my faves (these are my own thoughts/non-official descriptions for these fics, so if any author wants me to remove theirs, just let me know!):

  • Magnus Bane’s School for Young Warlocks (WIP - Part 21/30) - single dad!alec meets teacher!magnus au set in the shadow world. this is one that gets rec’d a lot, but there is a reason for that because it is fantastic. single dad!alec is such a weak spot for me and insomiak writes him so well
  • Strange Love - fake dating mundane au. mutual pining kills me and this fic does it really well. super cute and frustrating to no end
  • Never Stand Between Two Mirrors - canon!alec meets alt!alec au. i am such a sucker for this trope, and oncethrown’s characterizations are always the best. you will love every character you already love a little bit more after reading this fic
  • Blue (WIP - Part 8/?) - dom/sub au set in the shadow world. aaaaand yet another trope i’m hopeless against, but this story starts off really strong and well-written so i’m excited for it to be continued
  • Five Times Alexander Lightwood Almost Lost His Virginity (and One Time He Learned Virginity Was Imaginary and Stupid) - this is a slightly different take on alec than i’ve typically seen (one where he’s been in love before), but such a great look at his character through the lens of different relationships (and non-relationships) he’s had over the years. really, really great
  • A Fighting Chance - mundane mma fighter!alec meets dance instructor!magnus au. oh my godddddd. this might be my favorite fic in this fandom. it’s so so good, and the payoff at the end is fantastic
  • morning’s come, you watch the red sunrise - single dad!alec meets neighbor!magnus mundane au. just super cute and fluffy with great characterizations
  • Counting Lies - heroes/villains au? i don’t even know how to describe this fic except to say that you should give it a shot. it’s a wild ride from start to finish and leaves you with a ton of questions about the world you just stepped into (in a good way)
  • We Face the World - future canon!verse. despite the fact that this 5+1 style fic deals heavily with homophobia, it’s also a really sweet look into the lightwood-bane family
  • Guide Me (To You) - blind!magnus meets cursed mute!alec au set in the shadow world. this is such a cute story? the premise of alec’s situation is a little odd, but it has a great payoff at the end of the story
  • spend the days dreaming and the nights awake - canon!verse magnus and simon roommate shenanigans. this one is kind of more gen with a heavy focus on simon but it is soooo perfect (and there’s background malec and simon/alec interaction that’s golden tbh)
  • White Wine and Lamp Posts - canon!verse. this one’s very gen but i still want to include it bc it’s just some really cute alec and clary friendship in a way that feels like it fits with their canon relationship so far

+ some smut:

  • can’t take my eyes off of you - kinks: masturbation, voyeurism. alec gets bored and impatient waiting for magnus and starts without him and then magnus watches him finish, a++
  • coax the coals - kinks: figging. oh man… did not know what figging was and did not think I would enjoy this from the description, but boy was I wrong. wow
  • Everything Golden - kinks: sex pollen. this fic deals with issues of consent since it’s a drugged, ‘fuck or die’ scenario, but if you’re a fan of the sex pollen trope, this fic does it really well and in a way that definitely has angst but with a generally happy ending to balance it out
  • don’t take it easy - kinks: edging. !!!!!!!!!!!!! this is my favorite malec smut ever. there are no words

My gas station doesn’t sell beer on Sunday. We are usually pretty dead all day, aside from a few rushes, so our drive thru is closed. A man comes in and asks why the drive thru is closed. I explain to him that we don’t sell beer on Sunday, so we aren’t busy, and most people who come through the drive thru get beer, so we just keep it closed. He tells me that makes no sense, then gets some gas and leaves. He comes back not even 10 minutes later and goes into our beer room, which by the way, the lights are out and there are signs saying “No Sunday Sales,” and brings an 8 pack to the counter. I tell him again we don’t sell beer on Sundays, he says “Oh yeah, you just said that.” And as he’s taking the beer back into the beer room, shouts “Well why am I able to get in here then?”

BERENICE WOLFE APPRECIATION POST . S18 E20 ALL FALL DOWN. 

Thanks to the legendary; NatsAshes and her fangirl-enabling playlist I’ve spent my day rediscovering Bernie Wolfe, right from the start of her holby city journey and it’s delicious. Throwing around some praise for her first day as a fully fledged GS Locum Consultant on Keller, even though she spends the day in Darwin.  

Excessive fangirling under the cut.

I think an interesting side effect of Nightsister magic would be that it leaves Savage with some memory problems, later on. As the effects wear off over the years he is left to fill in a lot of blanks about his early days after the ritual.

Min Yoongi x Reader | Drabble

Request: Anonymous- 25 + 26 angst and a little bit fluffy with Yoongi pls 😊❤

Word Count: 1,038 words


25. “I’ve moved on.”

26. “I’ve been in love with you my whole life.”


Min Yoongi was the type of man who had a lot of pride. He would never admit his faults, and he would never go back on his word. When he said something, he meant it.

As you felt the train move from its still position, you looked down at your hand and stared at the line where your engagement ring used to be. You leaned back into the cold seat and pulled your thick coat around you even tighter. You hated cold weather. It reminded you about the time Min Yoongi had proposed to you. He fed you false lies of safety and protection just to later on leave you for some other girl he had on the side.

You remembered the week before he had left. Everything had been fine. Every moment of that week was ingrained in your mind.

I found loads of snails around where I live - I just couldn’t resist when I was walking home one day, as the area where I live isn’t really suitable for snails :/

Now they’ve finally found a new home where they can shelter from the sunlight, and find much more nutritious foods! I just hope that they’ll be able to have a better life in the woods and greenery as opposed to being stuck to a fence! After I released them all, I made their little tree stump more of a hideout by adding some leaves. I checked on them about an hour later and they had settled in just fine :) 🐌🐌🐌🐌🐌
