oh my god everything

i’m trying to write a chapter with a prof–yay co-writing!–and it’s like pulling fucking teeth. each word is draining me of all my very soul. ugh. 

i’m currently living in terror of my prof texting to ask where my updated draft is. oh god. just leave me here to die, a wreck of my former self.

以心伝心

Dedicated to the one and only @thatreallyhonksmytonk​ (a.k.a @kesskay​ <3)

Inspired by the art style of Mononoke (not ghibli) and Gankutsuou.

以心伝心 (Ishin-denshin) roughly translates to “heart to heart understanding” but literally translates to “what the mind thinks, the heart transmits,”

Ishin-denshin (以心伝心) is a Japanese idiom which denotes a form of interpersonal communication through unspoken mutual understanding.

ishin-denshin refers to a passive form of shared understanding. Ishin-denshin is traditionally perceived by the Japanese as sincere, silent communication via the heart

Man, I can’t believe Makishima’s dead #rip

I wonder if anyone has told Toudou yet

Until I retire… Please be mine.

What the subs should have said because that’s (not quite…) whAT KATSUKI YURI SAID TO VICTOR NIKIFOROV

ah- this got a lot of notes ^^;
I wanted to double check this and get a better version of the translation (the one above is what I got from my initial listen) but I think a more accurate translation would be “Please take care of me” instead of “be mine”
(the “boku no koto” tripped me up ;;; sorry guys. ITS STILL ROMANTIC AS SHIT THO)

okay but i wanna talk about this, because, i have a lot of feelings about this:

this little moment they have is right before they’re kissing against the wall. this little moment. it’s so sweet? and so playful? there’s very clearly tongue action going on, but, even then, it’s SO SWEET? and … yes i’m gonna use THAT word, domestic? like, these 2 haven’t kissed in SO long, and this is literally like one of those kisses you see where you’re kissing SO much that you’re literally tilting your head all the way, like isak is doing here, because you just don’t wanna BREAK the kiss? because isak’s missed even SO MUCH, he doesn’t wanna stay away ANY longer. 

and to some, this may look like such an AWKWARD angle? like, super uncomfortable and just really … yeah, AWKWARD? but, i LOVE that it is so … because it’s so SO much more … realistic? i don’t really believe much in “perfect kissing” and “perfect kisses” where your nose is at a 48.763 degree angle to the other person’s and yada yada,, because, fuck man, when does that kinda stuff ever happen in real life? 

kissing is MEANT to be all awkward angles yet still kissing DESPITE being in those awkward angles because you don’t wanna break away, and kissing is, stumbling backwards, but CONTINUING to kiss anyway. and kissing is “i’m gonna bend my head all the way even if it means straining my neck as much as i can because i simply wanna KEEP ON KISSING you”, just like isak is here.

and ugh, i just have /A LOT OF FEELINGS/ about this part.

MODERN WITCH AU

@reserve​ and i were talking about contemporary witch kylo on twitter dot com and we agreed a lot of it is probably just kylo buying too many crystals and trying to get hux to wear protective charms (and also kylo making up weird rituals to try to get hux to try new things in bed) ANYWAYS i really like the aesthetic

“There are similarities with Bergkamp. I think he can become a legend - if he commits (his future to #Arsenal). Bergkamp committed for a long period & played until 38. To become a legend at the club you need to stay for a long time. If you stay two years, you would not be a legend. I wish we have 10 more years of Özil”. -Arsene Wenger.
