Everyone look at Michael Martinez’ post. He’s a Filipino figure skater and the people speculate that Phichit is loosely based on him. I’m not sure if Michael really was the inspiration of Phichit is true or not, but seeing this gives me life.

If you’re an professional/student/beginning/aspiring animator

I’m writing a mini-thesis on animation, not only the basics of actually animating (Illusion of Life) but also how animation brings people together from everywhere of all ages. How our interpersonal relationships can develop and how our morality can develop from themes from these creations (Avatar: the Last Airbender). How it creates communities and lets people share in mutual thought.

Basically, if you could do me a huge favor and reblog with the reasons why you love animation/anime/any animated media. If you feel comfortable enough for a mini-interview please message me. I swear I’m not a spam bot.

Please and thank you!!!

Of course Yuri on Ice is just baiting

Victor and Yuuri, who gave a closure to the season by skating to the song about gay love that brought them together, as their marriage rings shined and their eyes couldn’t look away from each other, are completely straight and without a doubt not in an intimate relationship.

The writer, Kubo Mitsurou, who tweeted about her desire to write romantic relationships where gender doesn’t matter, and expressed her intention for the Yuri on Ice world to be free from discrimination, along with the director, Sayo Yamamoto, who produced other animes with LGBT characters, totally made Yuuri and Victor’s relationship like that with the sole purpose to pander to the fujoshis. This makes complete sense.

Its obvious they didn’t do all they could to portray their relationship in a romantic way. Censorship doesn’t exist in Japan after all, so writers are completely free to show characters of the same gender making out in the most explicit ways in R13 series like Yuri on Ice. It happens all the time in sports animes, because homophobia doesn’t exist in Japan and same-sex marriage is more accepted there than it is in the West.

I mean, would I be writing this if one of them was a girl? Probably not, because straight ships don’t need to do that to be canon! One look is enough! But unless Victor and Yuuri say they’re gay it’s not canon!

okay, but: yuri on ice soulmates au, the kind where you have their first words on your body somewhere. 

the banquet happens as in canon, but viktor is EVEN MORE lovestruck, because this adorably drunk japanese studmuffin is his soulmate. he has always wondered about the future of his career, knowing that his soulmate would ask him to coach them, but he is unprepared for just how much he wants to throw himself headlong into doing everything he can for this cutie.

only yuuri, blackout drunk as he was, not only doesn’t remember, but also runs away from him the next day.

viktor is pretty crushed about this, thinking that his soulmate doesn’t want him, and nearly quits skating himself. until the stay close to me video. that, to viktor, reads as “i’m sorry for running away, but i’m ready now.” obviously, he immediately rushes off to hasetsu. and hey- yuuri wanted him to coach him, so viktor can kill two birds with one stone!! brilliant!!!

meanwhile, yuuri goes through the exact same freakout as in canon, but with the added stress of trying not to fall for viktor because he’s not his soulmate, damn it! viktor is crushed to find his efforts rebuffed, but tries to give yuuri whatever space he needs- after all, yuuri is the one who reached out and called him to japan. so maybe this is just him being scared of rushing into things- fine, viktor can respect that. they can totally just take things slowly. they don’t have to act like soulmates yet- they can just be boyfriends! 

and sure enough, they grow together over time. china happens, and their relationship takes a huge leap forward. (viktor doesn’t even THINK about threatening to leave yuuri, let alone actually do it, but they still have a much-needed talk in that parking lot.) they make it to barcelona, where they independently buy each other rings. viktor is thrilled beyond belief- finally, he can show his love for yuuri to the world!

(yuuri protests to himself -even harder than in canon- that they’re just good luck charms. so what if he’s been looking up stories of soulmates that didn’t work out. and of purely platonic soulmates. and non-soulmate couples. and every conceivable type of non-traditional relationsh- OKAY, HE’LL ADMIT IT, HE’S GOT IT BAD.)

finally, we get to that scene in the restaurant, where viktor just about has an aneurism. because holy. fucking. shit. HIS SOULMATE HAD NO IDEA THAT THEY HAD ALREADY EXCHANGED WORDS. all of his efforts at being coy, at respecting yuuri’s not wanting to talk about their relationship; it’s all completely backfired. all he’s done is hurt yuuri all this time. he’s the worst soulmate ever, god, how can he ever look yuuri in the face again?!? 

meanwhile, yuuri.exe has crashed. he could have had this AGES ago. EVERYBODY IN THE ENTIRE SKATING COMMUNITY KNEW EXCEPT HIM. why did nobody ever mention- oh god, this explained so many weird comments! chris even has pictures of them posing with their words! (he is a dead man.)

yuuri goes on to win the gold at the grand prix, and he and viktor get married in the most disgustingly adorable ceremony the world has ever seen. the triplets gleefully inform the internet of the whole convoluted story. everyone lives happily ever after.

I still can’t get that gorgeous ending music that played for Yuuri and Viktor’s duet (last gif) out of my head! (I adore the soundtrack generally, though, which might have something to do with it…)
