love is such a wrecking ball

anonymous asked:

Ruby making Weiss blush has literally made my day. I love those two so much. They are practically canon in the manga.

I love it too because the showrunners approve of this nonsense lol. 

Weiss and Ruby are the perfect quiet couple. Like they fight and bicker and everyone kinda rolls their eyes - but nobody notices that they’re always together and that the fighting is almost always about protecting one another. Then one day they’re holding hands and sitting closer together in the cafeteria and it hits Yang like a wrecking ball. 


Then she looks at Blake who just nods. “Mmhmm.”

so he’s gone and you’re trying to let this go with him but it just won’t leave and you just can’t forget. this is an ache like lazarus; it is alive when it shouldn’t be, it is back and bigger than ever. it hurts that the memories are so soft and at the same time so goddamn wrecking ball. he was never as gentle as you remember. this was never as perfect as your naive high school eyes saw it. it’s hard to let go when the hurt is a leech and you are always bleeding. it’s hard to breathe easy when your head is always underwater.

  • Me: What's it going to take to get you to watch Yuri!!! On Ice?
  • Them: The one about figure skating? That doesn't sound like something I'm interested in.
  • Me: What if I told you the animation and figure skating sequences are awesome, it has realistic storytelling, superb character development, a lovely soundtrack, and actually surpasses its own greatness every episode?
  • Them: Still, it's not really --
  • Me: It smashes stereotypes like a wrecking ball, is full of diversity, friendly but fierce competition, and healthy relationships.
  • Them: Okay, but even so --
  • Me: Tangible tension but no melodrama, plot twists that turn the show on its heel and rewrites your perspective in five seconds, THE GREATEST LOVE STORY that's slightly mysterious and progressive and, bonus, the most positive LGBT representation I've ever seen in an anime or really anywhere
  • Them: But --
  • Them: Still - wait, what?
  • Me: Did I stutter?

I’m too salty for my own good I have to write an argumentative final paper about why discrimination against people with hair/body modifications is bad and also racist and my outline is like 3 pages of pure wank and passive (or just flat out) aggression my teacher is gonna pour a bucket of ice on me when she reads it because I need to goddamn chill

Yuri!!! On Ice is a breath of fresh air

Generally, sports anime have this certain formula. 

High School Kids + National Title (and sometimes some batshit insane moves that can’t be done in real life), basically. 

But Yuri!!! On Ice? A breath of fresh air that broke down boundaries like a wrecking ball. 

It’s very limited that you see adult protagonists in a sports anime, but here we have Yuuri Katsuki, twenty-four, generally relatable. He has anxiety, he has self-confidence issues and the anime staff addresses each of his issues in such a real and relatable way that I almost forgot it was anime. 

The progress of their relationship? The pinning? The awkwardness to the confidence? To the tender looks of just unwavering love and support from both Victor and Yuuri? What I love most is that both Victor and Yuuri are adults and through the season, we’ve seen them talk in their relationship like adults. We didn’t get that frustrating misunderstandings (granted we were given cliffhangers of death twice).  I’ve never seen anything so beautiful especially in a sports anime. 

The skating? Per-fucking-fect. I love how it was just figure skating and not some add on moves that can’t be done in real life. I love how it was realistic down to the last detail. How we all (to some t ) got our representation. 

So yeah, am I in love with Yuri!!! On Ice? You bet I fucking am. 

I can breathe because Yuri!!! on Ice wasn’t what I expected, it was more than my expectations and I am pleasantly surprised. I didn’t think I could love something as much as I did with Yuri!!! on Ice And as much as I hate to compare myself to Victor, he’s right. It gave me life and love. 

Well done Kubo and Yuri!!! on Ice staff. 

Thank you. 

How Marco gets money

I was just about to make a post about how Marco could possibly keep getting $650. He gives it to the goblin in Goblin Dogs, to the wrecking ball guy in ‘Pizza Thing’, and then he pays $650 in the Bounce Lounge.

I was so confused how Marco can keep getting that much money. He didn’t have a part time job and his parents aren’t divorced so he doesn’t get child support.

I would have never thought it was from princess Marco merchandise. That explication is ten times better than anything I could have come up with. I love the idea of young princesses looking up to Marco to become better princesses.

About that dinner...

SPOILERS FOR EP 10 OF YURI ON ICE! I tagged it spoilers but just in case you don’t have x-kit or tumblr savior (change that if you can btw, it makes the general tumblr experience so much better) sp-sp-spoilers!

I’m sure there’s going to be a ton of meta of the reveal that Yuuri actually asked Victor to coach him (granted he was drunk off his ass but still), the Otabek/Yurio scene (Otabek came through like a goddamn wrecking ball) and the whole rings bit but I want to talk about the dinner with everyone.

(Minako & Mari you are truly all of us)

This happens the night BEFORE the Grand Prix starts and it’s telling that even though they all have very intense rivalries with each other (then there’s Yurio and his galactic sized one) they not only get together when you could argue they shouldn’t, they are actively joking and enjoying each others company. Even bloody Otabek who no one really knows is there chilling and relaxing. It’s beautiful. There’s gentle riffing with each other, picture taking, Pitchit being the best and then the bombshell revelation that Yuuri basically turns into Christophe when he drinks. That leads to Victor and Christophe casually showing the others the videos & pictures and is a great lead up to the ring reveal which THEN leads to the oh shit reminder that even though they all get along, each of them still really REALLY wants to win:

Shout out to Otabek and Yurio’s matching stank eye!

They could have ended the scene perfectly right there and had Yuuri/Victor dash out but oh no. We are then treated to PISS OFF JJ (a study in 3 parts):

Even after all that blustering and IT’S GOING TO BE ME, they all either dislike or can’t be arsed with JJ so they don’t even bother acknowledging his threat and walk off together. 

Ah Yuri on Ice. You are truly one of the very very few great things that came out of the dumpster fire that is 2016. I am distraught there are only 2 episodes left. 

Can you guys imagine Ed and Os dealing with homophobes/homophobia? Real headcanon; 

Like Oswald is the sappy romantic “love is love” guy who points out things like how sad it is to make such a big deal of love and romance and then go on to assume its a right reserved only for people who meet a certian & very petty criteria 

Then Ed who is the Science Fact ™ guy who in true nerd genius fashion quickly and factually points out things such as homosexuality/romanticism is found in a wide range of different species & all throughout human history & culture. 

And together they’re a giant homophobia wrecking ball of feels and facts, sentiment and logic and basically get out of their gay way. 

( Also imagine them like having a fancy important dinner somewhere and some douche brings up some homophobic ‘but its unnatural’ crap but in a ‘polite conversation’ way just to take a low key shot at them both and Ed and Os go into this, and all the while they’re ‘politely’ tearing apart this homophobic trash they’re having total “eye sex” and making it real obvious they are digging the hell out what the other one is saying and possibly getting somehow gayer for each other because of it. )

What's your favorite Mother Mother song?

Uhhhhh… probably ‘Ghosting’.  But others I’m really fond of:  ‘Infinitesimal’, ‘All Gone’, ‘The Sticks’, ‘Bit by Bit’, ‘To the Wild’, ‘Body of Years’, ‘Body’, ‘Wrecking Ball’, ‘Verbatim’, ‘Chasing it Down’, ‘Baby Don’t Dance’, ‘The Stand’, ‘Problems’, ‘Oleander’, ‘Get Out the Way’, ‘Monkey Tree’, ‘Very Good Bad Thing’, and ‘Alone and Sublime’.

Off the new album?  I’m sure it’ll shift around a lot, but right now it’s ‘Baby Boy’!  ‘Free’, ‘Love Stuck’, ‘The Drugs’, ‘Mouth of the Devil’, and ‘No Culture’ are all pretty up there too!
