like i laugh and then i'm like

(small blurb of things while I wait for my ankle to stop swelling and the painkillers to work… I hope you don’t mind!!)

So I was re-reading your tag “Space Australia” and I had a thought… from the pov of aliens, Oro is p much THE human?? I mean:

  • Will adopt anything that looks like an orphaned being. Smol alien being alone in space? Oro’s now.
  • Also has significant bonding with any alien species that looks like a snake. Has probably tried and successfully pet any last one of them.
  • His experience has an actual 50/50 chance of starting the Armaggedon but somehow??? it always works
  • Has probs eaten things no one should and came out fine
  • Walks out of a crash, ten days later “hey what did I miss? Also here’s my new child, I met them while scavenging for things and you won’t believe what the motors can do now
  • If you try and tell me he didn’t attach a kunai to a snake and named it “Stabby" you’re lying and it definitely happened.

(i’d say i’m sorry but i’m really really not)

i like nick r*binson well enough but those kinds of jokes from him have made me feel uncomfortable in the past so it’s really fun watching people laugh at someone basically saying “hey this kind of joke can make people uncomfortable” to him like it’s some ridiculous outlandish thing for people who talk about gender issues and sometimes subtle sexism in the gaming community to talk about gender issues and subtle sexism in a public tweet by an employee of a large gaming journalism site

just because we all know he’s a nice guy and didn’t mean it like that doesn’t mean he shouldn’t be told when his jokes are bad

“Love actually” + 13 years later

young married christian blogger: Guys. I get it. Singleness is SO tough. I’ve been there! During those 6 months in 8th grade before meeting my wonderful soulmate (jared the sexiest hubby in the world :):):) ) I was so alone. It’s a season of life that just knocks you off your feet, doesn’t it?! Haha. I’ve been there ladies. So if you’re 25 and have a crippling fear of being alone, WAIT ON GOD’S TIMING. His timing was conveniently perfect for me so I guess I just feel like I am the appropriate person to give you advice :) By the way, we’re expecting!!!!!!!!!

Dear Fellow Otayuri Shippers:

It’s been exactly a month since episode 10 of Yuri!!! on Ice aired and our darling prince Otabek Altin was introduced to the anime, which gave birth to the Otayuri ship. I am so, so proud that in this one month, we have collectively built an Otayuri empire with hundreds and hundreds of fic, artwork and just content in general! Thank you all so much for being in this fandom with me and making it absolutely magical!

To commemorate our one month anniversary, I decided to break down and record just exactly how much screen time Otayuri got in the anime…

Episode 10:

5:11-5:19 (8 seconds) - Otabek notices Yuri standing in the corner after turning down JJ’s offer to have dinner together. Yuri aggressively reacts by calling Otabek an asshole and asks him what he’s looking at. Otabek just turns around and walks away. Yuri looks after him with a look of bewilderment.

9:39-10:15 (34 seconds) - Yuri is hiding in an alleyway from his fans. Otabek appears and tells Yuri to get on the motorcycle while Yuri looks freaked out. Yuri realizes who Otabek is and Yuri’s fans find him in the alleyway. Otabek asks Yuri if he’s coming or not. Yuri stares at Otabek. He then gets on the motorcycle and Otabek drives away while Yuri’s fans take pictures. Yuri looks up at the sky, probably wondering about Otabek and his intentions. The news that the hero of Kazakhstan “kidnapped” the Russian Fairy goes viral.

10:15-11:41 (1 minute 26 seconds) - Otabek and Yuri walk up the stairs to the top of a beautiful structure. Otabek tells Yuri about their shared past and his own past. He tells Yuri that he thinks that Yuri has “the eyes of a soldier.” Yuri shares some of his own past in return. Yuri asks Otabek why he came and approached him. Otabek tells Yuri that he just thought that they were alike. He then asks Yuri if he’s going to become friends with him or not. Yuri looks shocked. However, Otabek and Yuri eventually clasp and shake hands, while being bathed in the Barcelona sunset.

15:01-15:03 (2 seconds) - Mari and Minako-sensei spot Otabek and Yuri having tea together, and they watch through the shop window as Yuri speaks enthusiastically to Otabek and Otabek listens fondly with a small smile on his face.

15:13-15:14 (1 second) - Otabek and Yuri are shown sitting next to one another during the group gathering.

15:19-15:22 (3 seconds) - Yuri turns to Otabek and asks with a look of disgust why they all had to get together.

17:58-18:02 (4 seconds) - Otabek and Yuri walk away from JJ side by side.

Episode 11:

14:53-14:55 (2 seconds) - Yuri yells “davai!” at Otabek and Otabek responds with a thumbs up.

15:45-16:02 (17 seconds) - Otabek reminisces about his time training at Yakov’s summer camp in St. Petersburg and his impression of young Yuri.

15:45-15:47 (2 seconds) - When Sara mentions how Otabek is different now, the shot pans to Yuri and zooms in on his face.

16:16-16:19 (3 seconds) - Yuri looks shocked and then impressed by Otabek’s triple axel, his lips curling up into a smirk.

16:26-16:28 (2 seconds) - After watching Otabek complete his quad toe loop flawlessly, Yuri smirks and says “heh…?”

17:38-17:39 (1 second) - Yuri utters a happy little “yeah” after seeing Otabek’s score.

Episode 12:

17:10-17:13 (3 seconds) - Otabek shouts “davai!” to Yuri, and Yuri responds with a thumbs up.

19:49-19:50 (1 second) - Otabek claps while watching Yuri’s free skate, a small smile on his face.

Total: 2 minutes 48 seconds

Y’all. WE BUILT A FUCKING EMPIRE OFF OF 2 MINUTES 48 SECONDS OF SCREENTIME??? THAT’S LITERALLY SO AMAZING HOLY SHIT??? I AM SO FUCKING PROUD OF US!!! LET’S KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!! <3

find yourself a lover who takes you on a first date like this

IN THE WORDS OF SAPPHO:
“Sweet mother, I cannot weave. Slender Aphrodite has overcome me with longing for a girl.”

A girl whose nose crinkles when she laughs, whose brown eyes gleam in the sun.

She smiles into kisses and hugs me from behind.
She likes to dance.
She’s not too good at it, but she looks so beautiful when she tilts her head back and giggles at her movements that I love to watch her anyway.

She is sunflowers, lazy mornings, reading books aloud.
She is boardwalks with too big a sweatshirt pulled over her bikini, watching the sunset, hair pulled sloppily into a bun, a mess of half-dry hair.

She is mine.

Sweet mother,
“Sweet mother, I cannot weave. Slender Aphrodite has overcome me with longing for a girl.”

—  O.R.E. {how did I get this lucky to hold her in my arms}
