Some people think that Chuuya and Dazai might’ve had a better relationship before Dazai left the Mafia, and while I’d like to believe that’s true, I doubt it. I think Odasaku was the only one who understood Dazai, thus he became his only friend.

As a partner, Chuuya knew everything about him, and Dazai knew everything about Chuuya, but it all remained physical and practical. Dazai knows all of Chuuya’s attacks, but other than that? Maybe there was a time Chuuya tried to understand Dazai despite thinking he was weird and annoying, yet Dazai never allowed him to come closer, to move beyond that surface.

Which is why, with Dazai leaving, Chuuya has never gotten the opportunity to get to know his partner. It’s also why, I think, he doesn’t understand why Dazai left in the first place. They know eachother’s quirks, habits, strengths and weaknesses. It’s like they know eachother like the back of their hands, yet not at all.

I think that if Yuuri had skated Agape, he would’ve lost, not because Agape is easier to skate, but because it’s hard to understand. Sex sells and the reason Yuri P. wanted Eros wasn’t because he’s trying to be sexy and over-18, but because he knows what the crowd wants. It’s not often that beautiful, artistic pieces are favored against the showy, provocative pieces. Why? Because sex is something everybody can understand on some level. You don’t even have to be able to feel it to know it when it’s there. Eros is a more basic sort of love because you can see it. You can teach it. Yuuri learned how to be seductive in one night. Wink, blow a kiss, strut, jut out a hip, shake your ass, make a jerking motion with your hand. It’s SO EASY to get the point across because most people are hardwired to react to it.

You can’t teach agape. You can’t see it. It is something that is learned over time and sometimes never understood and Yuri P knew that. He knew that Agape wouldn’t get him a win because, “It was pretty, but Eros was more daring.” And the audience likes daring. They want to be entertained, not be put into deep meta.

Think about it. Most people don’t make breaking news when they sing a beautiful song or make it as a lead dancer in a ballet. Most people who break the news did something sexy: they got naked, they slept with a bunch of people in one night, they said something suggestive. That is the sort of thing that Yuri P understands and that is why he couldn’t have won with Agape, even if he had landed four quads. Technique doesn’t always make the winner. It’s the show and getting the audience’s attention and that’s why Eros would’ve been easier for either of them to skate.

Me: I want to write a one-shot about Natsu running for president.

Husband: Is Gray going to be his Vice President?

Me: Probably not… I’m thinking of making him either the campaign manager or the other candidate. Either that or Lucy will run against Natsu.

Husband: Why does she have to run against him?


Husband: Why don’t you make Lucy the First Lady?



Me: Because… Angst…

I've always considered The Gift to be a stronger ending than Chosen. While I'm glad BtVS continued on for 2 more seasons, I was never really satisfied emotionally with Chosen, I guess because in The Gift every single main character has a significant scene where they shined. In Chosen, a lot of the main characters got lost in the battle, and there was that very unnecessary Angel scene which I would have prefered was replaced with a last Xanya scene or Buffy/Dawn, or Buffy/Giles mending fences.

I kind of disagree, though. If we think of the show as Buffy’s journey, then I definitely wouldn’t have wanted The Gift to be the end of it. It’s not so much because she’s the hero and she dies. I mean, if we consider she’s constantly putting her life in the line, it would’ve made sense if her journey ended with her dying in battle. It’s the how of the death that doesn’t seem fitting for her journey. Yes, she was sacrificing herself to save the world, and isn’t that exactly what heroes do? But… her death was just as much suicide as it was sacrifice. Buffy was done, she was tired and jaded and she wanted to quit. And not just her slayer gig but life altogether. That’s why she’s so at peace when it dawns on her that was what she had to do. She was at peace, and she was happy. But it’s the wrong kind of happy. So even if I consider The Gift to be a much stronger episode than Chosen, I wouldn’t trade that final shot of her smiling because the weight of the world has been finally lifted off her shoulders and she has a life of her own to look forward to for anything in the world.

Does cultural appropriation exist?

Not really blog related but I’d really like to discuss this😂
Do you believe it’s a thing or not and how far does it go?
Can everyone wear “black hairstyles” like dreadlocks and if no for who isn’t it appropriate? White Americans? White people? Everyone who isn’t black?

Don’t want to offend anyone I’m just interested in this😊 (as an European I’m confused)
