A new pack! You can find some more of my recent stuff at my twitter! I usually upload my drawings there first (and then forget to put them here ) (yes, I’m going to spam my twi’ pretty much under every post)
And a few ancient refs (not really) on my US! and SF! versions of Sans are under the cut.
THIS IS NOT A DREAM I REPEAT THIS IS NOT A DREAM. I AM WIDE AWAKE AND SO ARE YOU
And I think the only one that can actually kills me in the recent episode besides the kiss is the way they look at each other >///<
LOOK AT IT THEIR GAZES ARE JUST SO FULL WITH AFFECTION AND LOVE IF THIS ISNT LOVE THEN I DONT KNOW WHAT LOVE IS
I remember the way you used to text me at 3am asking if I thought vampires were real. I remember how you always hated the way your hair fell on Thursday mornings and would never let me tell you that it looked amazing. I remember what your nicknames were for me, and how anytime anybody else called me them, you got angry. I remember the way you used to chuckle at my idiotic jokes and the way your eyes disappeared when you smiled. I remember how your voice sounds and how you used to sing random pop songs mockingly under your breath. I remember every detail of your favorite sweatshirt, I remember every second we spent laughing at nothing in the middle of the night, and I remember how much you used to hate it when I spammed your phone with 103 texts while you slept, but I did it anyway. I remember the way it felt to love you, and I remember the feeling I got in my stomach when I realized you loved me, too, but in the end, I would still want to forget your name and every stupid inside joke we had and everything in between, because the memories of you only ever make me realize that I lost you and I still don’t know where things went wrong.

I need her side of me to push me sometime (even though you obviously see me creeping in fb all day lol). Anyway, pats pats. You said you’re feeling better but honestly I’m worried too lolol.
★ Yuri on Instagram, or, How this story lives in snapshots ★
This post wasn’t originally meant to happen; I wasn’t
planning on writing for YOI, and it’s always a little hazardous to write
extensively about shows that have yet to end anyway. But sometimes I get ideas
that refuse to leave my head until I type them down, and I’ve spammed my
twitter enough as is. So here’s something I’ve been thinking about for a while
now; namely, a quick post I call Yuri on
Instagram, or, How this story lives
I’ll try to contextualize a
little: it took me a while to warm up to YOI. I’m the type of viewer who likes
slow build-ups, to really witness dynamics evolve, but much of YOI’s pacing
seemed to work on fast-forward. It wasn’t that I disliked it, but the
show didn’t initially engage me as more than a casual viewer. However, halfway
through the show that started to change. At first it was hard to pinpoint the
reason; I’d always liked the themes and atmosphere, but also understood why
some people felt the execution didn’t deliver. So why was I suddenly being pulled
in by the narrative that left me somewhat detached before?
Interestingly enough, when trying to explain my
new-found fondness for YOI irl, what came out was this:
“The show makes me feel like I’m watching snapshots.
There are all these glimpses at themes, elements, personalities, dynamics –
almost as if it’s not about a single, in-depth story, but several stories in snapshots instead. And so I can fill in all the gaps,
however I see fit.”
Filling-in-the-gaps is, of course, a method often used to
draw in the fujoshi audience. Its success often depends on the creator’s
ability to recognize when and how much subtext and/or ambiguity to use, in
order for the viewers to run off and transform the original text. Of course, this might accidentally make the pacing come off as confusing: isn’t leaving all these gaps between the extravagant scenes only a sign of bad writing, if the actual development is only referential on screen? Well, sometimes it can definitely be. But what I’m proposing is that with YOI, employing this snapshot-like subtext is actually a rather deliberate narrative choice through which to tell the entire story.
The first thing most of us noticed when we
started watching was YOI’s gratuitous use of internet and social media, mainly Instagram. Shorter
scenes are expanded through the use of “behind the scenes” material
shared by Phichit and co. This relies on the way we’re taught to interpret social
media: we understand that there is more to the image than we see. Moreover, we
love the snapshots because it leaves that
room for our imagination – a glimpse at someone’s photo feed only ever alludes
to the real story behind the picture, one that’s ours to construct in our head.
In this manner, you can take almost any episode, any
scene and apply the same logic: there’s more story behind these characters and
their dynamics, their dreams and aspirations, even the training that goes into
their skating programs. What we see isn’t the full picture, surely, but is it even meant to be? Or is it meant to give you a glimpse into this world, like a snapshot scene, just enough to
cultivate thought and feeling before moving onto the next?
In this regard, I found episode 10 even more proof of the
idea that YOI is intended to be told in snapshot scenes. We literally go back a year in
history playing out in the images of a photo roll, and the stories they share
are more incredible in our heads than they ever would be on screen. How long
did this danceoff take? Did Yuuri drink all those champagne flutes? Who first
pointed out the stripper pole? This is the world fanfics are made of, the world
of imagination that fujoshi love. This is the real subtext of Yuri on Ice, and evidently very successful in what it’s trying to do.
For a story that takes place in so many countries and the minds of so many people, it makes sense for the narrative method to employ this kind of subtext/ambiguity. For example, my ultimate favourite JJ comes off as
either a legendary egomaniac or a friendless loser depending on the scene you
catch him in. This leaves it up to the viewer to construct how these identities
work together, much the same way we piece people’s identities together through social
media every day. Another example is my other favourite, Yurio, whose true
loneliness was always hinted at (through the scenes with his grandfather, or
things like being hung up on Viktor’s promise); yet when Otabek asks Yurio to be
his friend, the scene is effective depending on how long you really think he’s been
waiting for someone to ask him that question.
Admittedly, at the beginning of YOI it was tricky to suspend my disbelief at the rapid-fire rate everything was taking place. By
the time episode 10 rolled in, though, combined with everything I’ve since
learnt about Kubo-sensei’s fondness for ambiguity, I realized I had actually
been following a pretty consistent internal logic all along. The end of that
episode confirmed this for me, because when the audience learns of the memories
Viktor has that Yuuri doesn’t, everything you’ve constructed in your head
rearranges. A single snapshot is all it takes, because the expectations we’ve
cultivated over Viktor’s motivations were based on snapshots too. The more
ambiguity over this, the more our expectations are taken by surprise.
Still, in order for that twist to work, you’ve had to fill
in the gaps between these snapshots with some sort of meaning in the first place. In other
words, the success of constructing narrative in such scenes calls for voluntary
participation. This is ultimately also the reason why this kind of style does
not work for everyone; if the script relies on the willingness to imagine how
the rest of the story happens, not every viewer is going to want to do
that. If the chosen themes, characters or dynamics fail to strike a chord, not
every viewer finds something worth imagining at all.
Even so, I would claim this ambiguity remains Yuri on
Ice’s biggest strength. Not only does it piece the multifaceted narrative
together (for such a character-oriented show, a good chunk of an episode can be
spent on the sports alone), but it also doesn’t dictate how the story should be
consumed. The way the show is structured really encourages that active
participation: just jump right in! Here you’ll find enough solid content to get
your imagination going, and enough freedom to interpret it as you see fit! Sure,
you can turn down that opportunity if it doesn’t seem suited for your needs as
a viewer, but like an Instagram feed, at its best it can turn into a colourful,
vibrant platform – to be inspired, to be entertained, to dream.

Tiny bit from our second shoot this weekend. Yep we did KHR too~
And I feel just so comfortable being Hayato xD
As much as I love Kikyo it’s REALLY hard for me to take good pictures in his cosplay so I’m really stressed when I do him, even tho I don’t really want to stop doing him? But when I do Hayato, still there are crappy pics but I’m like ‘chill’
It’s so weird cause even tho I like this guy he’s nowhere near my favs and is easily one of my two fav KHR characters to cosplay, or maybe even the favourite. And my favourite characters actually suit me much less ;-;
ANYWAY XD I’ll be spamming with cosplay for a bit. Please forgive me xD
Eiki Cosplay as Yama
Pompous Cosplay as our photographer :)
