if you haven't done this yet, top five serves in haikyuu?
I’m….so weak for all the serves tbh
1. Oikawa. Ah, nobody serves the way you do, baby and I’m so here for people being absolutely dead inside and outside before during and after his serves. He truly is the most beautiful and I think that this particular one from the last Karasuno vs. Aoba Johsai match could really be my favorite. But also, every Oikawa serve is my favorite Oikawa serve so there’s that
2. Yamaguchi. This moment. I cried all the tears I’ve got in my eyes and I wanted to run on the court the same way Noya and Hinata tried to do. It was so epic and it meant so much for our little Yams. A person who always felt behind everyone, the only first year not on the starting line, who’s not so good at anything and yet was able to trick with his killer serve one of the best liberos in Haikyuu. And not only him. That happened with Nishinoya too during practice. I can’t even find the words to describe how endlessly proud I am of him :’)
3. Semi. “I want to show my abilities. This desire is too strong. Although I know that the current Shiratorizawa does not need such a setter, this desire is un-containable. But, when I’m serving, I am free.” Like, damn. Semi is honestly so badass and he reminds me of Suga on so many levels. It doesn’t matter that he’s not the official setter anymore, no one could ever dare take his desire to fight away from him, and he will. He’s untamable and I love him so much
Plus that tongue thing he does before serving really makes me feel…things
4. Kageyama. Same as Oikawa (I mean he’s his student, after all), every time Kags serves is just mesmerizing to watch
Sorry for the spam it’s just that I could really watch him serve on repeat for the rest of my life and be quite happy with that
5. Bokuto & Iwaizumi aka my favorite aces…missing their serves ٩(ఠ益ఠ)۶
(You thought I wouldn’t find a way to put Bokuto even in this top 5. Jokes on you.)
- Bonus: BUT there’s just one, true person that deservers the most iconic Haikyuu serve award. And that person is…HINATA SHOUYOU (…mmmh watcha say?)
What he means:
Being the product of a society that places no premium whatsoever on emotional attachments, I can only express or comprehend friendship by couching it in professional terms, however wildly out of context they may be in this case. But yeah you're p cool, 10/10 would follow into Hell
Day 8: Front’s Seat’s For People Who Haven’t Been Kidnapped By Fucking Numpties
“Front seat’s for people who haven’t been kidnapped by fucking numpties,” said Simon, his words sinking from his lips to mine as he kissed me (in between sentences just like he knew I liked).
“I really wish I never told you that,” I said, biting at his lips.
After a moment of this (time lulling to a honey-like consistency) he pulled away, though he kept his arm wrapped around my shoulders.
“I can’t believe we’re snogging in your aunt’s car,” said Simon with a breathy chuckle.
“We’re like any other teenage couple,” I said, cocking an eyebrow in his direction. He smirked.
“Except you’re a vampire and I’m the Chosen One and I don’t even know if I’m gay or not,” he said.
“It doesn’t matter,” I said firmly, digging my fingers into the thick fabric of his jumper. “But you know what does? This.”
I leaned forward and kissed him hard enough to push him back against the passenger side door. Whatever he was about to say faded into an indignant muffle. I never ceased to feel a spark of triumph whenever he reached for me, held on to me. I hoped that this never changed.
When I leaned back he was breathing heavily, his rosy cheeks even rosier.
(I loved that I had this effect on him).
“I guess it doesn’t matter,” he said after a pause. He shook his head, almost like resignation. “You’re attractive either way.”
“Damn right,” I said, tossing my hair for good measure (I knew he secretly loved when I did that).
“Oh fuck off,” Simon sighed.
Instead I pulled him close, nestled in the crook of the driver’s side door. There wasn’t much leg space, but at the moment I didn’t quite care. I cared so acutely about this moment instead. Because Simon was curled into my arms, and his hair was brushing my chin and I could feel his heart racing beneath the wool of his jumper. These were the things I cared about. I relished every bit of this, even the fact that our legs were tangled and pins and needles had begun to bloom in my feet. It wasn’t perfect—but then again, neither were we.
Sure, the front seat wasn’t for people who had been kidnapped by fucking numpties. It was for an ordinary teenage couple.
Well… one was a vampire and one was supposed to save the world. But this—this felt almost normal.
percy blowing his action surge to run out of the mansion, grab vex, and try pulling her into safety during the pit fiend battle (which, although he didn’t get her all the way through, did allow vax and keyleth to get to her in time to heal her of poison and unconsciousness) is always going to be one of my favorite underrated perc'ahlia moments tbh
Okay but El’s reaction after the kiss is one of my favorite moments in the entire show. She probably has no idea what a kiss is, and it completely took her off guard, but you can tell after that split second of shock, she liked it. She smiles because she has feelings for Mike too, but she doesn’t know how to express them. It’s such a cute moment, it makes me happy whenever I rewatch it.
I have a lot of fave Percy moments but one that’ll always hit me from time to time is in SoM when Hermes and Percy are gazing up at the stars and Percy admits his favorite constellation is Hercules not because he was strong or famous or anything, but because Herc had really bad luck, like way worse than Percy, and it makes Percy feel better. it’s an equal parts mature and sardonic response and like same tbh
“I told you I was a human being with rights and freedom, but I was wrong,” Sakura says, holding his eye as he watches her. “I’ve become more than that, haven’t I?”
His breathing is shallow, like hers had once been. “They told us a god would come for it. They said it needed a champion, so we went into the desert, where there were savages closer to their chakras, ones far stronger than ours. We wanted that honor, the honor of winning, but we also wanted to live. We wanted to survive the darkness of the end times. You will bring our world to a close, will you not?”
Sakura thought about gates and what happened to them after the dreamer moved on to a new kingdom. What became of the TeaLion Express, of The Monarch Woods, or the Marble Gardens? Did she care?
“I move from world to world. When I leave one behind, there is no purpose in its existence anymore. Maybe your world will fall apart once I leave. I can not say.”
“You will damn us all.”
“You’ve been dead for centuries already. It’s just your turn to move on.”
He struggles, but there is real anger weighing his words down. “You devil! We deserve better than this destruction, you can’t do this to us!”
Sakura reaches for the crown shaped wreath, feeling the dream around her shiver. “I am no devil, but this is my dream and I will be its god.”
She crowns herself and her destruction is undone in darkness as the world falls away.
Truth is that I’ve heard about this drama since it was aired (and the fact that it was Nam Joo Hyuk, huh. Of course I’ve heard about this). BUT I wasn’t really planning to watch it (at least not so soon). However, people talk about this drama. A LOT. So I got curious. And honestly, watching this drama was one of the best decisions I’ve made in 2016! I watched it on the last day of 2016 - how cool was that (but anyway).
I thought it was just another (boring) drama with nice actors but this drama is anything BUT boring. I was so hooked (still am, tbh) on the first episode. But my favorite part? When Joon Hyung agreed to see a clinician (I was actually expecting that he wouldn’t.) I thought it was just another drama that will worsen the stigma by refusing to seek professional help BUT NO. At that very moment, when he agreed with his brother that he will do it, I know that I will love it. And this drama is more than that so allow me list the things I love about it:
Hi Vanessa, I just remembered about one of the funniest/one of my favorite Larry moment and wanted to remind you too: Harry's face when Louis said he wanted a dressing gown for Christmas 😂😂😂 OK BYE GOOD NIGHT
I can barely recall how far and wildly I delved through Tumblr to find it, but I stumbled across your fanfiction The Next Step a few days ago and have decided it's one of the best-written (albeit frustratingly short) fanfics I've ever read. Since then I've read so much more of your stuff, and your prose and descriptive skills are wonderful. You're an incredible writer. :)
Ooooooo my gosh, this was unexpected! Just… wow, thank you! Honestly, it feels like it’s been ages since I wrote httyd/those two, and the longer I go the less sure I am that I had anything worthwhile in the first place (dramatic, but unavoidable, sentiments). And yes, it must have been quite far and wildly you delved, as it’s rather old at this point; still, I think my favorite sort of fics to write were the ones that could theoretically be canonical moments–hardly even qualifying as a story, tbh–but I’m real glad you thought so highly of it nonetheless.
Really, thank you for taking some time out of your day for shooting me a message about it - you’re awesome. Maybe the new season (though more likely the next movie) will get me back into writing httyd, because skimming over it made me miss exploring things like that!
