Its not fucking fair. You get to move on while you destroyed my heart by cursing with nothing but darkness. I can never move on because you’re always there reminding me of what I lost. I feel like I’m trapped and I can’t escape.
Watching my stepmother negotiate my cell phone bill is an incredible experience and it’s really opened my eyes up to how much shit you can get done and how much better your life can be in like, material ways - spending less money, getting better service, etc - when you go into every interaction that you have with a fundamental, unrelenting belief in the fact that you are a valuable member of society and that you, as a human being, deserve to be treated fairly and with respect. Like I don’t think a lot of people really know this - how being told you are nothing and that you are not entitled to dignity, fairness, etc, leaves people more vulnerable to being taken advantage of, not just by individuals but by institutions as well. How can you deal with a 400 dollar phone bill that you know is unfair when you have been told systematically for a good chunk of your life that you are fundamentally an unlikeable fuckup who deserves bad things and doesn’t deserve to have money, and you still on some level believe that? There’s a reason a lot of abuse survivors live in poverty. Poverty makes you vulnerable to abusers who make you vulnerable to conditions that enable your further poverty. May 2017 be the year we all start channeling our inner 50something cranky German stepmother and become better advocates for ourselves and those we love.
A/N: I don’t know what this is. I got this idea one day, and I couldn’t stop thinking about it. I know this story may not be everyone’s cup of tea, if not that’s fine. But, I’m really excited about this series and I’m going on start part two today. I also have another series coming up called The After. So, don’t be surprised if I randomly post it. lol
blue and gansey not being able to kiss is a narratively unsatisfying choice because the curse storyline has no tangible endgame and therefore loses its whole purpose. for me, the storyline was always about either gansey dying for good thanks to blue’s kiss or blue and gansey breaking the curse by fulfilling it. that seemed to be the only two rational outcomes and neither happens and that makes blue’s curse quite pointless, to be fair. all that build up in four books leads to literally nowhere because nothing changes, not the fact that they can’t kiss, not the fact that they still desperately desperately want to. gansey dies, he comes back, and nothing changes, and that just falls flat in my opinion. it makes their storyline feel really unfinished and incomplete, thus i am electing to ignore this for the rest of my life.
YOU SHOULD'VE SEEN THE RING! THE CAPTAIN SWAN RING! THE RING SYMBOLIZING MY OTP'S DEVOTION TO EACH OTHER! THE WEDDING RING! THE RING THAT SPARKLES LIKE MY EVER-LASTING LOVE FOR THE PRINCESS AND THE PIRATE! SHIPPING CS IS THE BEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO ME!
NO FAIR! LET ME SEE! I brought Hook back to life. The two of them wouldn't even be together if it weren't for me. I DESERVE to see the ring!
Oh, don't be so dramatic, darling. It's just a ring. Nothing to fuss about.
Yoi episode 9 has just slayed any romance/shoujo manga/anime out there. They truly are making history. This is the time for the anime industry to take notes and see how it’s done! We finally saw a genuine hug (two) out of love, and care not just a prize for doing great. That scene between Victor and Yuuri made me cry, I was sobbing, and I still am if I think about it. I have turned into an emotional wreck. I have never been so impressed with a couple in my entire life and oh boy I had my own fair share of anime. Nothing can top YOI.
The scene between the Crispino twins was very emotional as well. It’s hard to let go of the hand that you always held. I kinda’ get where he’s coming from. It’s not creepy, it’s genuine love.
Yurio, I never liked him, EVER but after this episode…I adore him. I want to protect him and cheer on him until I die. He was so beautiful during his free skate (better than JJ any day) Indeed a prima ballerina <3 He genuinely was worried for Yuuri and he wanted to cheer him on. He gave him piroshky! What a sweet child!
JJ was extremely douchey during this episode! Just a quick reminder mister, Yuuri might not be the skating King you are , but he’s Victor’s King! He even pitied Victor at some point. God, he has no idea how happy Victor’s been since living with Yuuri. I really want JJ to lose the GPF. I don’t care if Yurio or Yuuri gets the gold medal but he just can’t! I’m done with his cocky ass!
I’m so happy Makkachin is safe, I had a feeling nothing bad would happen to him, that’s why I didn’t make a fuss about it.
Yuuri can’t give his best when Victor isn’t around. He looked extremely miserable at the beginning of his performance. He IS skating for Victor so I wasn’t surprised. This just means, they have to be together forever ;)
Yakov is adorable and he’s a great coach. Lillia was crying during Yurio’s performance, she’s so precious :’D
Thank you Mappa for making this beautiful series <3
I’m a bit sad that we didn’t found out anything about Victor’s past and didn’t see Yuuri and Yurio train together but overall this was the best episode so far. I’m still crying while I’m typing LOL…. I’m very excited for episode 10! I wonder if Victor is giving Yuuri a ring? XD If he does, please all come to my funeral :D
“I’ve trusted people before in friendships or relationships and have felt betrayed, I judge people based on their moral code; I think someone is nothing without a moral code. I don’t care if you’re talented or celebrated or successful or rich or popular, if you have no moral code. If you will betray your friend, if you will talk about them badly behind their back, if you will try to humiliate them or talk down to them, I have no interest in having a person like that in my life.” — Taylor Swift (Vanity Fair, September 2015)
This is my last post. As said in my previous update, I’m taking a break from simblr for awhile. I want to focus on things in my life and my inner introvert’s calling for a retreat to recharge my energy ;) So, I’m putting all social things aside for now and I’ve been feeling overwhelmed with a lot of things lately. But, I am fine. Don’t worry about me. I also want to focus on writing. Solely writing and nothing else.
And thank you everyone for commenting on my previous update. It means a lot. I decided to hang around here abit ‘cause I saw a few things pending in my Askbox and notifications and just to catch up with you guys before I go. Seems fair :)
So, with all that, I hope I will be back soon. Hiatus for now. Toodles!
