Victor/Yuuri and the Media

Alternately titled “Sachiro can find Victor character development pretty much anywhere he looks”.

As an attempt to get over the writer’s block that has been plaguing me for a month and a half, I decided to try and tackle something new. Something that’s a more outside-of-the-box idea in terms of analysis (at least I think) so let’s take a look at an aspect of the series that I haven’t seen talked about too much in terms of character development: the media!

I started thinking a while back about how we can actually see a clear change when it comes to Victor and his interactions with Yuuri in regards to the media, especially when we compare the earlier episodes to the later ones, and it got me thinking. Why does Victor act so protective of Yuuri in front of the media in earlier episodes and what changed by the later ones to the point that he’s so noticeably not there (and at what point did this shift take place)?

Victor himself actually enjoys the media attention and we have that shown to us repeatedly over the course of the show. Yuuri, on the other hand, tolerates the media but while he doesn’t enjoy the attention he isn’t actually a terrible speaker in front of the cameras.

Before we get into the meat of the discussion, let’s take a quick look at how each of them interact with the media when left on their own (at the start of the show anyway).


Victor

The very first time we see Victor, he’s in front of the cameras. His heart may not have been into it but he was still able to pull out a big smile. Even more in our faces later, we see him winking at the crowd at Worlds and sending everyone into a tizzy. He’s very much an extrovert and gets his energy from others around him.

Even after he moves to Japan, and especially once Yuuri and Victor get back into the competitive circuit, we see him thriving off any media attention he can get; whether it’s interviews, at the kiss & cry, or from the attention given to him by his fans.


Yuuri

On the other hand, Yuuri is very docile in front of the cameras. He’ll respond with phrases that you can tell he prepared ahead of time. You can see that he doesn’t really enjoy the attention but he’s been at this long enough to know how to deal with and tolerate it. In contrast to Victor, you don’t see Yuuri waving at the cameras and actively seeking out attention from his fans.

We can see examples of Yuuri on the far side of this spectrum in episode 1 where he actively tries to avoid interacting with his fans. We can also make the assumption that he avoided all media and social media in the space between the GPF and the Stammi Vicino video due to no one having an inkling as to what his career plans were (even though him skipping out on Worlds as the only Men’s Singles skater for Japan would have already been suspect – I wonder what excuse he gave because it definitely would have hit the press either way).

Edit: he didn’t qualify for Worlds at all due to his poor performance at Japanese Nationals, my bad!


As you can probably guess, putting both of them in the same frame would certainly cause some interesting interactions, and that’s exactly what happens! So let’s take a look from the start and see how they managed to somehow get to a point where Victor is leaving Yuuri to deal with the media alone/actually been tame in front of the cameras as seen in the last episodes!

(More under the read more due to length/images so please enjoy the rest of the analysis!)

Hi there! I don't know if you'll have anything to say aside from what you told that other person asking about building towns, but. I don't DM, but I have been interested in creating cities based off medieval history for D&D lately. However, I'm kinda at a roadblock when it comes to structuring that info. I tried to find a blank sheet or something but had no luck. How do you (or others) usually arrange information? Also, if I were to come up with something I liked, should I send it here?

Please feel free to send me ideas, your art, etc! I don’t post every idea I get, but I’ve gotten a lot of good ones I never would have thought of. 

I’m pretty unorganized tbh but this is what I do usually: [real vs example versions]

Lockston

Large population, human with some dwarfs.

Strong guard presence.

Typical, but at night everyone hurries home. Everyone thinks their family is cursed to be werewolves, and others will kill them. No one knows everyone else is also a werewolf.

Not close to other towns, no allies. Enemies with the nearby Drow settlement.

Beer n Booty: typical. Run by Ava. Sells endlessly empty mugs.

Sleeping Ugly: Expensive. Run by Burt. Complimentary breakfast, but it’s all weird fancy stuff.

Mixer’s Elixirs: Potions shop run by Mixer. Yes, that is his name. No, you cannot buy anything deadly. He sells perfume but insists on calling it potions.

Luthur. 42. Very hairy. The townsfolk are worried about him, he seems to be acting strange. He’s salivating at the sight of meat, has fleas, and is growing hair on his legs at an alarming rate. He is the first werewolf, slowly transforming into a full wolf. The rest of the village is soon to follow.

3.10 part 5 - Bånder: The three times Isak broke eye contact, closed his eyes, or averted his gaze + the three times Even doesn’t let Isak let go of him

anonymous asked:

I want you to know that I had a semi-nightmare involving a lot of half-naked Angie and Yandere Saihara after seeing that post. I'm. So confused. Why did I have that dream. Why was Angie half-naked. Why did Saihara have teeth as sharp as a freaking alligator. These are the questions I will never have answers to.

the answer is that i… may have made an au on the words “half-naked angie” and “teeth as sharp as a freaking alligator”…

congrats, i guess we might have a cult au on our hands??? HaHA,,,,

also, saihara with sharp teeth..!! in my elusive, super serious style. he actually looks rlly good–

I know I’m late for Asexual Awareness Week, but just a quick reminder that asexual people exist, have always existed, and will always exist and it would be lovely if people would recognize and respect that.

We deserve support and representation and our concerns deserved to be acknowledged. Asexual people are amazing and bring light to this world, and will endure.

(If you are not asexual, you are welcomed to reblog this.)

Why is there even a fucking controversy about supporting Antifa. THERE IS NO FUCKING MIDDLE GROUND WHEN DEALING WITH NAZIS. YOU EITHER SUPPORT THEM AND THEIR VIEWS, OR YOU DON’T. Neutrality only lets them breed their toxic and hate filled ideology like? There is no fucking neutral ground to stand on. YOU ARE EITHER A NAZI, OR YOU’RE NOT. THAT’S IT. 

and Nazis only understand VIOLENCE. Peaceful protesting is great and all but when you’re dealing with people who openly and actively want to COMMIT GENOCIDE IN FAVOR OF A ‘SUPERIOR RACE’, YOU BEST BET YOUR ASS THAT PEOPLE ARE GOING TO NEED TO SQUARE UP AND TAKE THESE FUCKERS DOWN, BECAUSE THEY WILL NOT BACK DOWN WILLINGLY. 

Like I GET not wanting to be violent but there is no, absolutely NO choice when it comes to fascism and nazis. And TBH, if you think they(Nazis) DON’T all deserve to be punched, hurt, preferably killed, then get the fuck off my blog! Unfollow me! Block me! I don’t want your fucking shitty ass person near me!!!! Fuck you!!!!!!!!! These assholes don’t deserve any sort of platform to spew their uglyass hate speech! AT ALL!!!!!! There’s no ‘but we need to be the better person’ or ‘we need to hear all sides of the debate’ BECAUSE THERE IS NO FUCKING DEBATE. NAZIS SHOULD NEVER, EVER HAVE A VOICE IN ANYTHING. And if you think otherwise then FUCK RIGHT ON OFF.

TL;DR: If you don’t support Antifa because you don’t condone violence against people who desire genocide and death of anyone who isn’t straight, white, or Christian, fuck you, fuck your shitty opinions, and I hope you have a terrible fucking day.

Do you have any favourite headcanons about how Klance would get together (and if so what are they)

Omg right ok

- So after a while of knowing each other, they become more like friends than ‘rivals’ like Lance said, so they’re less likely to argue and more likely to banter just let T HEM B E FR IENDS
- Anyway the competitive streak never goes away
- Ever
- Keith and Lance have this incredibly long game of truth or dare going on, which has thus far only been used for dares
- Everyone was in on it at the start, but as it continued and the game stretched on for w e e k s people started dropping out of it
- Shiro was first to drop out (”but daaAAAAAAAAAAAAAAaad”) and Allura was the last, besides Keith and Lance
- It’s just meaningless shit like “Keith, I dare you to SHOOT SHIRO” “Lance I cant do that -” “so you lose? Makes sense, considering you’re the drop out” “…. Pidge make me a squirt gun or something I need to shoot Shiro”
- “Lance I dare you to get through the fucking maze for once” “FUCK YOU, KEITH”
- After a while they’re spending Too Much Time being little shits and daring each other to do the dumbest shit like Lance once nearly got thrown into space because of a dare it was hilarious
- Spending Too Much Time also means noticing how cute it is when the other laughs
- And how freakin funny they can be
- And how good a match they are
- Hooooo_boy.jpg
- Anyway cut to a few weeks later, the game’s still going and they’re in the middle of an Intense Battle
- Shit’s getting real™
- Keith and Lance end up separated from the rest of the group and their lions are damaged so they land and Hope
- What Lance doesn’t know is that Keith is a Lil Bit Hurt
- Just a Lil Bit™
- As in he is bleeding Quite A Large Amount
- Like not bad enough to be deadly but enougto make him Very Woosy
- So the moment he stumbles out of the red lion Lance is like shitshitshiTKEITH ARE U OKAY and he’s scrambling to get over there and fuss over him like the freakin mother hen he truly is inside
- Keith has no idea how much blood he’d have to lose to die but his head is like, kill bill sirens I’M BOUTTA DIE GET ME OUTTA HERE
- Keith just kinda stares at him and is like
- Fuk
- Imma die
- I can’t die without having kissed Lance ONCE
- Like that’s his 1 thought
- So Keith is like v v quickly “LANCE TRUTH OR DARE”
- “What?? What the fuck Keith you’re basically bleeding out, we nee to get in touch with everyone else- “
- “LANCE. TRUTH OR DARE”
- “For fuck sake - truth”
- “OH FUCK YOU LANCE PICK DARE”
- Lance is like ??????????????????????
- “Fine ok dare wtf”
- “I dare you to kiss me right now”
- Moment of silence for the fallen, rip in pieces Lance
- He doesn’t do that bc Keith is probably delirious from blood loss but Keith is like ooOOOOHHHMGOODDDD LANCE and just grabs his face and kisses him
- The kiss lasts for like 5 seconds probably and Keith promptly passes out
- Lance is just ????????????????????????????????????????!!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!??!?? 
- Cue extreme confusion and probably screaming from Lance until somebody comes to get them both
- Keith spends a day in a healing pod and Lance spends a day FREAKIGN THE FUCK OUT and probably also getting advice from Hunk
- Once Keith is out they don’t have eye contact for a couple days until Lance is like . fuck this. what the fcuk. “Keith, truth or dare.”
- “Truth.”
- “Why’d you kiss me?”
- Silence for a couple seconds. Then, “’cause I like you.”
- Lance is like . .…  ejsuUE SU UU SU S US
- Lance is like “I’m taking an extra turn since you technically did my dare for me before. Truth or dare”
- Keith’s like “…Dare?”
- “Kiss me again?”

and that’s how klance got together adksjfdslkhj; ur welcome
