not like i was already going to explode

Figure Skating Charms and a Wealth of Nuance

Haha…so…*guiltily posts this months later* I had this in my drafts 70% completed since episode 10 came out, but with episode 11 and 12 the fandom exploded on other issues, and I thought it was kind of irrelevant since the rings have so many layers of meaning already. But in PASH magazine’s March issue, Kubo-sensei actually brings this up. 

I ended up cleaning this post and after finding out that @sachiro​ was going to make a similar post, we decided to have “pair posts” to submit for victuuriweek. You can read their yoi meta here , which discusses and connects specific moments throughout the series to the points I’ll lay out in the second half of this post.

About Yuuri’s charm. Yuuri has a figure skating precedent for buying jewelry to act as a charm - it isn’t a blasé “lots of good stuff around here…yeah, rings can make good charms, right? idk, but I’m doing it anyway.” Here’s yet another layer.

Charms are a legitimate THING in figure skating.

You won’t read about this in figure skating intros or on Wikipedia, and you won’t hear commentators talk about it either (if it’s brought up, consider it a stroke of luck and immediately save that video/interview forever). Unless you follow skaters to the point of knowing about their personal lives, then this is one meaningful aspect of figure skating that is easy to miss.

In the studio brainstorming the 100th TMNT episode...
  • Nick Animation: Ok so TMNT is getting it's 100th episode! What's it going to be? Another 80s throwback? Clip-show?
  • Brandon: ....let's kill a turtle
  • Nick Animation: Uhh...oh, ok? I guess? Will it be a somber death like Splinter in the season 3 finale?
  • Ciro: Nah, we're gonna make 'em explode.
  • Nick Animation: Wha! Uh, jeez um, fine? Well which turtle did you have in mind?
  • Brandon: Well Leo's already had a bunch of injuries, and Raph would be too obvious.
  • Ciro: And we could never kill Donnie is our lucky guy!
  • Nick Animation: WHAT?! But he's already been through so much with "Same as it Never Was" in 2003, and Issue #44 in IDW!!!
  • Brandon: I know! Let's keep up the trend! Fans will love it!
  • Ciro: And we'll get Pete to write the episode.
  • Peter DiCicco: Hey.
  • Nick Animation: But he's notorious for writing episodes that specifically torture Donatello!
  • Brandon: Yeah he'll do a great job!
  • Nick Animation: Whew, fine. So, who's going to kill him? Shredder? Some space villain?
  • Brandon&Ciro: April.
  • Ciro: Yup
  • Nick Animation: Dear Lord...Well, at least it'll be a private, intimate moment, right? Just the two of them working things out.
  • Brandon: Oh no we'll make his brothers watch
  • Nick Animation: Sweet Jesus.
  • Ciro: And instead of saying he's dead, we'll just say he's been "molecularly deconstructed" or something so no one will know
  • Nick Animation: OH! Oh well then that's fine then, if he wasn't really dead!
  • Fandom: -__-

Requested by @shjsieisks

Dean threw three more packages of Morton’s salt into the cart, hesitated for a moment, then grabbed another. You approached him, the pie he requested you grab in hand. He didn’t look up as he spoke to you.

“Look, I think Sam and I have got this vengeful spirit covered. Why don’t you head back to the bunker and help Castiel figure out that whole tablet issue.”

You narrowed your eyes, catching his subtle attempt at trying to keep you away from the fight.

“You’re only four minutes older than me, Dean, so you can stop treating me like a child. If I stay couped up in that bunker for one more minute my head is going to explode.”

Dean finally looked up at you, but his eyes flicked to the pie in your hands. Annoyance flashed over his features.

“You already are insane. I asked for apple, not raspberry.”

Sam rolled his eyes as the two of you launched into bickering. You shoved at Dean’s shoulder and he did the same to you. 

“Would you two quit it? We’re in a store,” Sam scolded. You and Dean hardly heard him. He sighed and then raised the volume of his voice, this time not talking to you or your twin, but to the other store patrons.

“Two children up for adoption. Both potty trained and only slightly smarter than they look!” 

You shot him a dirty look, forgetting about your annoying twin, but Sam kept booming out his fake advert all the way to checkout. He even leaned over to tell the cashier that he would pay someone to take “the two troublemakers” off his hands. You sent a sharp elbow into his side, grabbed the groceries and hurried out of the store with both brothers in tow.

(hm i think since i already said a 5 i’ll go for 7)

what’s your least favorite theory or fanon?

  • you seriously want me to pick JUST 1….

  • ok uh, for one? literally every popular “fanon" thing about bismuth fucking sucks (irt: ”she’d kill all the gems!!! she’d be a big Meanie to peridot and lapis!!! she also punched a baby once its true i saw h). its like they didnt even listen to her literal lines in the ep about trying to liberate everyone and how much she fucking loves and cares about others, and it’s so fucking clear they’re repainting her as someone WORSE and more irredeemable than the fucking diamonds because shes big butch and black and the diamonds are slender and non-black coded. its so. transparent.

    i have seen more “jokey” and “cute” comics and posts about the dimaonds than i have bismuth. as in. i have never seen a cutesy joke-y comic with bismuth. ever.

chth0  asked:

I dare you to write a romeo and juliet style forbidden romance between different flavours of pie.

Drabble Requests are open!!!

Kael, I know I already said that I was writing this as pie-shipping and not pie shipping, so I hope you enjoy this. XD I had a little too much fun with it.

“And you tell that son of a bitch that I know he stole my idea for braided edging on my crusts and I’m going to sue him.” Cross threw a ball of dough onto the counter, flour exploding into the air like a volcanic ash. Cross seemed less bothered by the cloud of flour than he normally would be, considering it was already settling in his hair and on his clothes.

Allen sighed as he looked down at the pie box in his hands. “I don’t think we can afford to sue him, Boss.”

“He doesn’t know that. Plus, it’s free if it’s just a threat.” Cross grabbed the rolling pin and thwacked it onto the ball of dough, the sound echoing in the bakery. “Now get the fuck over there and give him that pie.”

The Signs as Songs from Cry Baby by Melanie Martinez

Aries: Pacify Her
Someone told me stay away from things that aren’t yours
But was he yours, if he wanted me so bad?
Pacify her
I can’t stand her whining
Where’s her binky now?
And loving her seems tiring
So boy, just love me down, down, down

Taurus: Alphabet Boy
Always aiming paper airplanes at me when you’re around
You build me up like building blocks just so you can bring me down
You can crush my candy cane but you’ll never catch me cry
If you dangle that diploma and I deck you, don’t be surprised

Gemini: Training Wheels
Letting go, letting go
Telling you things you already know
I explode, I explode
Asking you where you want us to go
You’ve been riding two wheelers all your life
It’s not like I’m asking to be your wife
Wanna make you mine, but that’s hard to say
Is this coming off in a cheesy way?

Cancer: Carousel
Round and round like a horse on a carousel, we go,
Will I catch up to love? I could never tell, I know,
Chasing after you is like a fairytale, but I
Feel like I’m glued on tight to this carousel

Leo: Pity Party
Did my invitations disappear
Why’d I put my heart on every cursive letter?
Tell me why the hell no one is here
Tell me what to do to make it all feel better
It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to

Virgo: Tag, You’re It
Running through the parking lot
He chased me and he wouldn’t stop
Tag, you’re it, tag, tag, you’re it
Little bit of poison in me
I can taste your skin in my teeth
“I love it when I hear you breathing
I hope to God you’re never leaving”

Libra: Dollhouse
Places, places, get in your places
Throw on your dress and put on your doll faces.
Everyone thinks that we’re perfect
Please don’t let them look through the curtains.

Scorpio: Mad Hatter
I’m peeling the skin off my face
‘Cause I really hate being safe
The normal’s, they make me afraid
The crazies, they make me feel sane

Sagittarius: Cake
You smell just like vanilla
You taste like buttercream
You’re filling up my senses
With empty calories
I feel like I’m just missing
Something whenever you leave

Capricorn: Sippy Cup
Blood still stains when the sheets are washed
Sex don’t sleep when the lights are off
Kids are still depressed when you dress them up
And syrup is still syrup in a sippy cup

Aquarius: Soap
Should’ve never said the word “love”
Threw a toaster in the bathtub
I’m sick of all the games I have to play
I’m tired of being careful, tiptoe, trying to keep the water warm
Let me under your skin
Uh-oh, there it goes, I said too much, it overflowed
Why do I always spill?

Pisces: Cry Baby
Your heart’s too big for your body
It’s why you won’t fit inside
They’re pouring out
Where everyone can see
They call you cry baby
But you don’t fucking care
So you laugh through your tears

  • lololol
  • me
  • me

Eating Like Dean

A/N: I’ve had a headache on and off all day and have been way tired. This was the result.

Waking up, your head was already pounding. You stomach was doing cartwheels, your eyes felt like they would explode, you wanted complete silence, and of course you couldn’t do that. If you slept in, one of the boys would come drag you out of bed. Your brothers loved you, they just weren’t that tactful when it came to your period. It was nice when your boyfriend, Cas, could come help you out, but it was always touch and go.

You finally got out of bed, forgoing pajama pants, and walking out of your room in just the oversized shirt that you’d gone to bed in. Sam was already at the table, drinking his coffee and reading the newspaper. “Morning.” He smiled.

“How the hell are you so damn perky in the morning?” You asked, narrowing your eyes at him. “Are you not human?” You gasped.

Sam laughed and shook his head. “I take it we need to go out and buy more hamburgers, chips, and ice cream?” You stuck your tongue out at him while grabbing a donut.

Yawning, you sat at the table with him. “Please, please tell me there are no cases, Sam.” The last thing you wanted was to feel like this on a hunt.

“Nothing major. Dean and I will be fine. Get Cas down here to keep you company. I know how this gets you down.” He said, getting up and kissing your forehead. “You need anything while I make a quick supply run?”

“Bacon, hamburgers, cheese, soda, energy drinks, oh! and something for these damn migraines. In case Cas is busy.”

He laughed and nodded. “Go curl up on the couch, kiddo.”

After you finished your donut, you did just that. You grabbed the large throw from the back of the couch and curled up with it. You wanted to sleep, but the pain behind your eyes was preventing that. It had gotten so bad at one point (before you met Cas), that Sam had to rush you to the emergency room.

Hearing the bunker door, you knew that they would be leaving soon. Sam found you curled in a ball, only your head visible. He chuckled, making you flip him off. “Here ya go. Feel better.” He put a bag on the floor next to the couch and walked back out.

You waited a few minutes before sitting up and pulling the bag into your lap. You smiled when you saw all the goodies he had brought you. Grabbing the soda, and the bottle of medicine, you quickly popped a couple in your mouth. Letting your head fall back, you closed your eyes, sending a silent prayer to Cas.

“Yes?” He said from beside you. You didn’t bother opening your eyes, simply leaning your head on his shoulders.

“Can you stay with me while my brothers are on a hunt?” You asked.

He glanced at you. “I can do that.” You smiled.

You don’t know how long the two of you sat there, watching mindless tv when Dean came in. He groaned. He still hated the idea of his “baby” sister dating an angel. “Sam told me to tell you we’re headed out.”

“Okay. Be safe.” You said looking up at him, seeing that look. “Dean, I’m on my period. Nothing’s gonna happen.”

Dean made a face before walking out. “I don’t understand. You are an adult woman. Why would you reassure him that ‘nothing will happen’, when it’s out of his control?” He asked. “And when what would be the point when we’ve already had sex?”

You sighed and shifted. “In his mind I’m still a kid. I mean, it’s that whole stupid double standard thing. He’s kind of a hypocrite.”

Cas nodded, understanding what you meant. “Are you hungry?” He asked.

The mention of food had you grinning. “Starving.” You got up, taking his hand in yours.

“Would you like me to make you something?” Cas offered as the two of you made it to the kitchen.

You thought for a minute. “Double bacon cheeseburger with pickles, onions, and ketchup. Then fries, and I can get my soda. Oh! And then I’ll have ice cream after.” You grinned as you sat down.

Cas stared at you. “Have you ever noticed that you eat like Dean when you’re on your period?” He asked, raising an eyebrow. You shook your head, laughing. You hadn’t noticed.

“At least I’m not wanting pie.” You pointed out.

“It wasn’t every second of every day. But sometimes I’d get this boiling feeling like there was mercury in my blood. And it would rise up into my head and I’d get so angry it was like I was going to explode. And all I could think of was worst-case scenarios. And it felt like there was no way out. I’d work myself into such a frenzy that I thought there was only one way to eliminate that feeling. And I’ve already lost seven veterans that I know to suicide. Two of them were very close to me. These were educated guys. And they seemed happy. You’d meet them, and think: ‘These guys are so great.’ And I knew if it could happen to them it could happen to me. So I came here and I started unpacking this shit. It was a lot of work. The therapist just guides the conversation. You have to dig up stuff you thought you’d packed away forever. And you have to answer questions that you never answered. It’s exhausting to go that deep. But it works. I feel like I’m in control again. I know my triggers. I don’t flip out. I don’t send inappropriate emails at work when I feel slighted. I still have bad days but I’m in control again. I was afraid therapy would cause me to lose my edge. That didn’t happen. It made me stronger. It’s like gym for the mind. And I don’t want to lose one more veteran. That’s why I’m telling my story right now. I don’t want anyone to be afraid to look under the hood. Therapy is like Men’s Wearhouse: ‘Give it a try. You’ll like the way you look. I guarantee it.’”

***In this, Donna never existed so Opie doesn’t have any kids yet.***

“You ready for this, baby?” You nodded at Gemma, an excited smile on your face. “I’m nervous a little.” “No reason to be nervous. That man is going to explode from happiness. He’ll be pissed that you haven’t told him but you’ve got no reason to be nervous.” You nodded and hoped she was right. You didn’t really think there was a possibility of Opie not wanting the baby, it was just that like Gemma had said, you hadn’t told him yet. You were already 4 months and had yet to even mention it to him. You’d been almost 2 month when he’d gotten sent to county for assaulting an ATF agent before you’d been able to tell him.

You’d put it off and put it off and now your tummy was showing, had been for about a month now. All Opie’s brothers had noticed, obviously, but you and Gemma had begged them not to tell him. Gemma thought it would be best to just have Opie focus on getting out and focus on the baby after. You reluctantly agreed and now here you were, minutes before the Jax was bringing Opie home. The club was throwing him a party for coming home and Gemma had told you to tell him tonight, assuming he didn’t notice your tummy first.

You imagined how he would react. If he would smile immediately or if it would take him a minute or if he would smile at all, too shocked to even react. Would be be upset that you kept it from him and start an argument or would he be so ecstatic that he was having a baby that he let it go. Your daydreaming was interrupted by Gemma placing a hand on your shoulder. “They’re here.” You swallowed loudly and Gemma laughed at the sound. “It’ll be fine baby. Just get it over with.” You nodded and stood, your hand instinctively going to your growing tummy.

You walked towards the entrance of the clubhouse with Gemma, just as Jax and Opie entered. All the Sons present for the party already knew you were pregnant and stood by, eager to see the reunion and reaction. They’d all looked after you and helped you with whatever you needed, along with keeping it from Opie. You’d been together for a while and they all knew how happy he was going to be when he found out that he was going to have a family with you.

Kozik and Hap sat perched at the bar, Tig, Bobby and Juice by the pool table waiting nearly as anxiously as you. You stood there awkwardly and Gemma ran a comforting hand down your back, pushing you towards Opie slightly. His eyes lit up as he saw you standing there and smiled widely, his pace picking up as he walked to you. He wrapped his arms around your shoulders and brought you in close to him, his eyes slipping closed as he savored the feeling of you in his arms once again. He noticed your body felt different though, your tummy feeling firm as it pressed against his. He pulled away and held you at arms length, taking you in. You were wearing a regular top since there was no need to hide it and the fabric stretched over your bump.

Opie stared down at your tummy in silence for a couple seconds before looking up at you with wide eyes. “You’re pregnant? Are you pregnant?!” You smiled and nodded lightly. He looked back down and ever so gently placed a hand on your bump. “You’re pregnant…” You laughed at the quiet whisper of his voice and held your hand over his but let go as he pulled away suddenly. “You’re pregnant! That means I’m gonna be a dad! I’m a dad!” His volume raised much higher than before and hoots and hollers broke out from his brothers as the realization hit him. He turned to Jax quickly, smiling from ear to ear. “I’m gonna be a dad Jax!” Jax laughed and nodded.

“Yes. You are.” Suddenly Opie turned back to you. “Wait. Why the fuck didn’t you tell me? Everyone know?” He didn’t sound mad at all, just confused and that eased you. “I was pregnant when you got picked up. I didn’t want to tell you because I didn’t want you to be distracted. I had meant to tell you before you got locked up and then everything got so crazy. I’m sorry. They’ve taken care of me though. ” He nodded and pulled you back in for a hug.

“I’m kinda pissed that you didn’t tell me but I’ll let it go.” You smiled gratefully and he suddenly leaned down, crushing his lips to yours. He kissed you passionately, full of love and you melted into his touch, only breaking apart when you heard Kozik’s voice. “Better chill out. That’s how she got that way in the first place.” You blushed an hid your face in Opie’s chest, the group laughing. This baby was going to have one crazy family and you wouldn’t have it any other way.

I wonder sometimes whether you’ve exploded already, like a star, and what I’m seeing you is three million years into the past, and you’re not here anymore. How can we be together here, now, when you are so far away. When you are so far ago? I’m shouting so loudly, but you never turn around to see me. Perhaps it is I who have already exploded. Either way, we are going to bring beautiful things into the universe.

How do you find out about all the events/shows Jeffrey is attending??? The only ones I know of are the walker stalker cons and non of the cities are remotely close to where I live. I wanna meet him so bad my heart feels like it's gonna explode at just the thought 😭

Check out creation ent website because he was announced the other day for a few supernatural conventions. Those are way more expensive but just putting that out there. I follow a lot of pages that are constantly sharing where he’s gonna be, I post on here as soon as I see it. He’s already going to be attending a lot of shows this year so keep on the look out.

scyth13  asked:

Sooo... I think I love you and and I was wondering if you would be willing to marry me? So, like, we can ruin each other's lives about how perfect this ship is? For the rest of forever? Please?

WE CAN BE FANDOM BUDDIES YES? lol Sadly, I am already spoken for and he’s the VOICE OF REASON (patent pending) / Sanity / Logical One. When I start going crazy about ANY sort of fandom, he wraps me in a blanket and plops me on the couch next to the dogs. HE DOES NOT INDULGE ME BECAUSE OF THE FEAR OF ME EXPLODING (like that one time he said “did you see this?” video of Andrew Garfield kissing Stephen Colbert. I knew about it of course BUT WHY YOU GIVE ME THIS IF YOU DONT WANNA SQUEE WITH ME)
