Agape, It means more than you think: A minor history lesson to basically headcannon Otayuri for episode 11

Okay kiddos let’s have a chat about Archaic greek. Agape currently means “unconditional love/pure love given by God,” but that’s not what it originally meant.

Agape is used in Archaic Greek to represent love for one’s children, for a spouse and one’s close friends, it was also used to denote a feast of love (definition from a Greek Lexicon). Nowadays it refers to the pure unquestioning love of god, this is due to the prevalence of monotheistic omnigods in our current world and the influence of Greek Philosophers on medieval Christianity’s scribes (e.g. Thomas Aquinas being a massive Plato and Aristotle fanboy).

Now I believe this to be important on the sole basis that Yuratchka’s performance of Agape follows the original definition, focusing on love of family. But it’s not enough. We’ve seen Yuratchka’s performances and we know he’s lacking emotional depth. How does Yuratchka fix this? Well he needs to see the second portion of the Archaic definition. “…a feast of love…”. Yuratchka NEEDS more love. He needs to understand another form of Agape, friendship. I think our brilliant YOI team are obviously aware of Agape’s meaning and this leads me to believe in the Grand Prix Final Yuri Plisetsky will have to channel his love and the love felt for him, from his Grandfather, but also for his very first friend, Otabek. So to win our Yuratchka will have to have them trademark flashbacks and think of Beka and his Grandpa.

This symbolism and just pure character development (from an angry lone wolf to forming tentative but strong bonds) is absolutely beautiful and as an lover of stories I freaking adore it. Plus I really want my darling to have an epiphany about Otabek during his skate, maybe even a snippet of memory from when they were even smoller than now…




welcome to me…

Thy heart is sawn for deep crimson
Why do you never want to refuse pain?

This is not me, hate me, do you know where I am?
I can’t remember how it started. Tell me why you harbor a doubt.

Thy heart is sawn for deep crimson
Why do you never want to refuse pain?

Start creating, father’s breath re-forms life of sin.
The origin of birth explodes into pieces for a sake of god.
The deep dark is dyed with white to begin the day of pledge.

The night spreads their soul out
The time has began with thunder’s sound
The sky turns into a trial


Can you stand by me?
戸惑い続け辿り着いた最期は(I wish I could see you again)
Do you feel sorrow?
想いは褪せない 砕け目の前の壁(I wish I could see you again)

This soul is forgiven, 裁かれよ 罪深き羊
This soul is unforgiven, 許しを乞え 灰に化す迄

New heavenly object rise above the horizon.
The sun will warm it like a mother’s favor,
and little seed will be sign of beauty.
Descending, agonize

This soul might turn line beyond the mark
Resume the trail by ordeal

We suffer the pain or mire
Hate is much stronger than love. Unhallowed human being has been distorting justice.
I can’t accept this fatal. My sinful son, it’s over. A punishment is my love.
I cleanse your soul, and cleanse your blood, your sinful blood.

The night spreads their soul out
The sky turns into a trial

Can you stand by me?
彷徨い続け巡り合えた最期は(I wish I could see you again)
Do you feel sorrow?
想いは消えない 足掻け哀しみを越え(I wish I could see you again)

This soul is forgiven, 裁かれよ 罪深き羊
This soul is unforgiven, 許しを乞え 灰に化す迄


Das beliebte japanische Label Omnigod ist zurück mit seinem Herbst/Winter 2013 Lookbook. In Kooperation mit Paraboot und Hyperion, besteht die Kollektion aus klassischen britischen und amerikanischen Stilen, die mit angepassten Proportionen und neuen Materialien etwas moderner und tragbarer gestaltet wurden. Woll- und Tweed-Anzüge, Jacken und weit geschnittene Chinos sehen sehr vielversprechend aus. Auch die Womenswear mit modifizierten Stücken der Herrenkollektion machen einen interessanten Eindruck.
