oh god i'm losing it guys

You know what I love about episode 10 of YOI? It's Victor's "oh for god's sake I'm just a guy" episode.

I still remember watching it for the first time. I kept having to pause it because I was losing my shit. Because one minute Victor’s Mr Perfect, floating beautifully in the pool, talking about Life and Love, and next minute his nose is running because it’s so fucking cold and then he’s being silly with his bestie Chris. 

We learn how lonely he was AND heaps about Yuri P as well, who he clearly cares a lot about and he’s clearly trying to prevent from making all his mistakes. 

We realise he’s even more romantic than we thought. And how much he loves Yuuri and how this whole thing was actually instigated by Yuuri - Victor NEVER would have done something as crazy as we’d been thinking all season. 

I fucking love episode 10.

Next Anti Appearance?

There’s been a lot of question as to whether or not Anti will be showing up in October this year. Now personally, I’d like to think he’s not going to show himself and here are the reasons why:

Firstly, Jack’s going to be going on tour, so I don’t see how he’d have the time to create any Anti stuff. Secondly, I recently saw him respond to a post about whether or not we’d see Anti in October and he seemed really unsure, plus it seemed to him that it’d still be a bit too early to bring Anti back (which I have to agree with him). Also, I know October’s the spooky month and all, but if we always expect Anti to show up on Halloween, where’s the surprise in that? Anti’s all about being unpredictable. He showed up at PAX, no one expected that. He showed up in the middle of SUMMER - such an odd time for him to show up!

Personally, I’d like to think he’ll show up either in November or December. Could you imagine? We’ll go through October, all on edge expecting him to show up, but not once does he make an appear. So we let our guard down by the end of October. And then come November, Anti hints start showing up and suddenly it’s part 2 of the Antipocalypse, and it leads up to December. But what would really mess us up is if come the week of Christmas, suddenly everything stopped. No hints, no zalgo text, no images, no suspicious videos titles. It all just stops and goes quiet for DAYS.

Now I got a REALLY twisted idea the other morning. Bear with me here and just imagine this:

If Anti is going to go after Chase (which I honestly think he is), and if he did show up around Christmas, imagine this:

You get up Christmas morning and have a great lovely morning with the family, opening gifts and what have you. You know, having a happy fun-filled Christmas morning :) And after everything’s calmed down, you go online and find out Jack’s posted some sort of Christmas video.

It’s a video of Chase and he’s going to FINALLY get to see his kids (because it’s Christmas! Why the hell not?!) It’s all happy fun times….until things begin to go awry and Anti comes in to fuck things up. What would happen, I don’t know. I don’t know if he’d corrupt Chase, torture him, kill him. Either way, I got this sick idea that he’d kill our “favorite boy” and that would be like his Christmas present to us all. Could you fucking imagine?! Do you know how fucking twisted and sadistic that’d be - for him to kill our precious cinnamon roll (ON CHRISTMAS DAY, WHEN HE WAS GOING TO SEE HIS KIDS!!!) - and we can’t do fuck all, and he does it as some twisted gift idea for us all?! It’d be worse if Anti made Chase’s kids watch too! It’d be so messed up!

We would be scarred for days, weeks, MONTHS! We would NEVER forgive Jack for doing something like that - we’d probably temporarily hate him for a day or two. But the scary thing is just how easily I could imagine something like this happening. For crying out loud, Jack loves horror and he knows how much we love Chase, plus Anti’s know for being unpredictable. You put all of that together and the possibilities are endless (and frightening).

Could you guys imagine?

OH MY GOD I JUST WATCHED THE MOVIE FOR THE THIRD TIME AN I REALIZED SOMETHING THE BEWILDERBEASTS REPRESENT STIOCK AND DRAGO NO BUT THINK ABOUT IT THE WHITE ONE IS A GOOD LEADER AND AN OVERALL GREAT GUY AND DIES RIGHT BEFORE STOICK AND THE GREY ONE LOSES HIS TUSK AROUND THE SAME TIME DRAGO'S METAL ARM FALLS OFF AND THEN THEY BOTH DISAPPEAR INTO THE SEA Okay I'm done

YES. I’ll be honest, I didn’t notice the Stoick/Drago vs. Bewilderbeast parallel the first couple of times I love it, but if there is one thing to be said about Dean’s directing style, he sure does love him some parallelism. I mean just with Hiccup’s character, you see that he’s trying to balance the person his dad would have him become with the person he would have been with his mother. I think that’s part of why feral!cup appeals to me so much, because it’s the same character tackling the same problem from a vastly alternate perspective. I adore the idea of two different universes cutting down to who Hiccup is at his core; it emphasizes his values.

But. Back to the rant. 

Over the course of HTTYD (and, of course, HTTYD2), we’re presented with a ridiculous number of foils. If your high school literature teacher hasn’t yet taught you or didn’t teach you about foils, it’s basically just a fancy word for saying THIS character and THIS character are used to highlight each other’s similarities/differences. This movie is CHOCK full of them. From the very first scene, we see Hiccup drawing a clear line between himself and the other teens. Snotlout and/or Astrid are probably his specific foil, because they’re everything a Viking is supposed to be— strong, capable— and everything that Hiccup is not— including accepted by his village. Then you get the fishbone rant, and he basically paints the picture of what his dad wants. It’s Hiccup vs. the Hiccup Berk wants him to be. That’s the major plot thread running throughout the film. 

THEN. If you break it down you find other, smaller details. For instance, Hiccup and Toothless. Both part of a culture, but neither quite fitting in. Hiccup because of “well, Hiccup”, and Toothless because of his new disability. They have to learn to work together, side by side, to eventually become (as Hiccup puts it in httyd2) “one”. I’ve mentioned this a couple of times before, but I really hate the cliff scene where Hiccup says, “I looked at him and I saw myself.” Because that felt like forced parallelism to me instead of so much of the actual parallelism that Dean included. Like, maybe I’m just missing something (I definitely don’t claim to be some sort of expert), but I don’t exactly get what part of Hiccup he was implying he saw in Toothless. Feeling trapped, maybe? The fear? The humanity? Either way, I think it could have been better fleshed out. The scene felt a little thrown together to me. But then in the end, we get that glimpse of Hiccup and Toothless walking out of the Haddock house. Toothless’ left tailfin and Hiccup’s left foot are gone. And that was the scene right there that sold me on httyd forever. 

BUT. That’s not all. I think the strongest parallelism in httyd comes directly after the cliff scene. You’ve got Stoick the Vast and his men sailing through thick, almost opaque fog. Gobber approaches apprehensively, tells his chief that the men are afraid, that they want to know what the plan is. How does Stoick reply? “Find the nest and take it.” No strategy, no reassurance, nothing. Then we flash to Hiccup in the kill ring, approaching the dragon cages. The teens approach, obviously excited and enthused. Snotlout exclaims, “I love this plan,” and Astrid asks, “So, what is the plan?” And Hiccup smiles. 

This, I think is the most powerful foil in the whole movie: Hiccup and his father. On the ship, you have the Vikings sailing into the unknown, led by a man so distracted by his bitterness that he can’t even see that his men are uncomfortable. Then on Berk, you have the skinny kid who they see as a traitor becoming a leader that his peers can trust and depend on. And then when they fly into battle, Gobber comments that Hiccup is “every bit the stubborn, boar-headed Viking [Stoick] ever [was]”. This is a foil that stretches into the sequel— Stoick sees no choice but war, and Hiccup almost blindly believes in peace. Hiccup’s whole issue with becoming chief in httyd2 is that he’s only ever seen his father in that role, so he only associates Stoick’s qualities with that role. He thinks he’s too different from his father to be able to become the effective, committed chief that Stoick has been. But, as we all know, that’s not all true. 

But yeah, what I mean to say is— yes. The Bewilderbeasts were an awesome parallel for Stoick and Drago. Drago and Hiccup are two ends of a vast spectrum. Valka is an incredible foil for Stoick. And Dean DuBois has a little bit of an obsession. 

  • what she says: I'm fine.
  • what she means: Are Jae-ha's feelings for Yona just a side effect of his being a dragon warrior, or have they developed purely because Yona is a babe and an inspiration to everyone? Can't really blame the guy, I mean damn, even I'M in love with Yona. I must know. I can't keep losing sleep over this. And furthermore, I've only recently joined this fandom and already see people hating on Jae-ha and telling him to get out of Hak's way? Like?? He can't help the way he feels?? Oh my God???

anonymous asked:

you've probably been asked this before, so feel free to just link me to a past post. but when do you think Mulder and Scully said "I love you" for the first time? who said it first? or did they not even have to say it? *prepares to be emotionally slaughtered by your answer*

Oh anon. I want to give you a hug before I answer this. Actually, I want you to give me a hug. Ok. Deep breaths.

Well first of all, they most definitely said it at some point. By IWTB, they had been together (romantically) for over six years, so I’m pretty sure that even these two emotionally reserved wrecking balls must have exchanged a few “I love you’s” during this period. (I’m guessing the majority of the time they said it in bed. But I also picture Scully leaving for work one random day and Mulder just casually looking up from his computer and saying “I love you”. And she smiles and leaves and then she calls him at lunch and says “I love you too.”)

Ok. Now onto the first time. My theory is that they said “I love you” to each other during “all things”. I believe they had been sleeping together since “The Goldberg Variation” (aka around the time of the final failed IVF attempt), but they were still very cautious and careful with each other. I think they both knew how the other one felt, but they just weren’t ready to say it.

Cut to “all things”: Scully has a major revelation about her life. She feels empowered by the realization that she is exactly where she wants to be, and she is with the one person she wants to be with. She feels peaceful and brave, and when she wakes up sometime in the night she goes into Mulder’s bedroom and they start to make love and she just quietly tells him she loves him. He smiles and kisses her and says it back. Nothing dramatic, just some simple, heart-felt declarations of a sentiment they both already know to be the truth.

So that’s my theory. I have to reiterate that I really don’t think Mulder and Scully are the kind of people who say “I love you” all that often. However, that doesn’t mean they don’t say it in other ways:

“You made me a whole person.”

“Maybe I did want to be out there with you.”

“Get over here Scully.”

“Shut up Mulder, I’m playing baseball.”

“Never give up on a miracle”

“Well I’m fairly happy…. that’s something.”

“I’m not gonna risk… losing you.”

And my personal favorite:

“THE TRUTH WE BOTH KNOW”.
