priorities off

Oh my glob - the next chapter of Needs Must and TVD are both done!

Both are in need of (likely heavy) proofreading, but in sheer desperation to finally post, I might skiv the amount of proofing I normally do. I’ll either have something up tonight or else tomorrow sometime :3

スタジオ生出演、羽生に聞く by hana02015

Rudimentary Japanese translation of some interesting points from Yuzu’s recent interview because it’s quite comprehensive and I’m not sure if someone’s subbing it~~ (note: my Japanese is far from perfect so corrections are welcome- this is more of the ‘gist’ of the conversation and not word for word)

  • Said his season began with injury so he was essentially starting from behind the line, but also because of the hard times, he was able to grow
  • Re: Worlds - announcer praised his perfect FS and Yuzu said it was to the point where people were asking if he failed the short on purpose to trigger his fighting spirit lol but he admits that he probably wouldn’t have skated the FS with that sort of spirit if he had done well at the short so he needs to keep improving
  • Re: WTT Yuzu said doesn’t usually get the chance to watch other people’s performances from close by. Seeing the ladies skate so cleanly, he realised that the high level of this era of competition, where even the smallest mistake will cause you to drop in the rankings. In the Mens, it’s not simply that you have to jump quads, you also can’t miss. He said that was very instructive and he learned a lot
  • Re: New Quad Era’ and the 4A. Yuzu said he’s tried it during practice in the off-season but it’s difficult – says it’s a special jump (due to the entry method) with high risk and so he has to consider risk of injuries etc. when practising it
  • TV station made a hologram/projection of Yuzu landing a 4A. Yuzu: ‘whoaa this is cool, I want to jump with it’
  • They say he has to jump 17cm higher than for the 3A. Yuzu: ‘huh, it sounds quite high but it’s…kind of really just my hair isn’t it?’ He’d also need to land 1.1m further than 3A and rotate 10% faster. Yuzu fairly unfazed: ‘Looking at it now, I feel like I…can probably jump that?’ and thanks them because he feels like he can visualise it now, thanks to the hologram lol
  • Yuzu’s old (first?) skating teacher was all like: ‘I feel like conversation about quints is coming closer’ lololol
  • Yuzu doesn’t feel particularly unnerved/scared that the sQuad are younger than him. Said he knew Shoma since very young and though Shoma is a kouhai, after fighting through the competitions together, he also sees Shoma as a nakama ( ; u ; )
  • more discourse on quads: Yuzu says what helps you land the quads is not really young age/experience but ‘sense’ for the jumps
    • The next part was hard for me to understand since I didn’t pick up on all the words but I think the gist of it is that successful jumping comes down to each individual and if you have the instinct for it, a ‘challenger’ can come from anywhere
    • 最終的はそれぞれの個人の体((退学に合わせたもの)))??? idk guys soz lmao
  • SHOWED THE QUAD LUTZ : D
  • They were like ‘can you…land the lutz in practice? should we put a circle or triangle?’ and yuzu laughed and was like ‘t-triangle….’, implying his Lutz isn’t perfect yet 
  • ‘It’s a hard jump but it’s fun! Since the season is finally over and we’re finally free from competitions, I wanted to try it.’
  • Says he’s not going to put the Lutz in the Olympic program - says having a lot of quad varieties does not mean you can win
  • they talked a bit about the 3/11 earthquake and Yuzu said bc he had the experience of losing his home-rink and still remembers the hard times that followed, he’s always quite happy and grateful to be able to practice in a rink
  • Has absolutely no plan for Pyeongchang at the moment LMAO
  • first plan for off season………wants to improve a lot of skating skills (#typical), esp 4Lz and the 3Lz because 3Lz went a bit weird (bc he’s practising 4Lz?) lmaooo
  • Goal for next season: ‘Towards perfection’ - 理想の先へ (literally: towards the ideal destination but he implies he means ‘beyond’ the ideal). He’d characterise this season (with the Loop) as a season of getting closer towards the ideal. Next season he wants to surpass the current ‘ideal’ he has. People say you shouldn’t have limits but Yuzu thinks it’s good to have limits, but if you set your own limits, you should set them higher than you’re able to achieve right now (I think? I’m not entirely confident I’m hearing it right)

Hey guys! This has nothing to do with PJO but a week ago, when I came back from running, I found this dying baby on the street without too much hopes, so I started to take care of it, take it to the vet and feed it.

Now, luckily, it’s better, and if everything goes well, on Monday it could go fly and be free.

So, can I ask you a favor? Can you wish for it recovery? It health is the only thing that occupies my mind now.

Warning for cussing. That’s about it.


“What closely Paladins.”

With a sharp command from Allura, the training “dummy” materialized in front of her. Allura sunk into a stance of an Altean fighting style in which the simulation mimicked. There was a moment of complete and utter silence, the only form of movement were Allura’s pupils gliding up and down the dummy With a sudden burst of speed, the simulation shot forward, trying to land a kick on the princess’s head. The white foot bounced off of the tanned wrist and to compensate for the imbalance of its stance, the dummy drove its right fist towards her abdomen. Allura caught the fist in the palms of her hands and thrusted away from her body. The simulation stumbled backwards before charging once more towards the princess.

anonymous asked:

Leia freaks out and decides not to Marry Han, right before their wedding. She doesn't tell him, and when she runs off telling Luke she can't do it, Luke decides split second that he'll marry Han and let the man decide what to do when the papers need signed. So Luke finds himself being put into her wedding outfit, finding it a little loose and needing tightened a bit. and he tries to tell Han, or give him a sign, but he doesn't have the chance until they're finally alone.

I mean the problem isn’t so much with Han – if Leia told Han she didn’t want to get married he’d probably pull some joke about not wanting to go through with it either and drop the topic (he’s happy to have her in his life in whatever way works for them and if that doesn’t involve the “traditional” route of marriage, well, he isn’t much of a traditionalist). The problem is the fact that Leia is very much politically and socially held up high. So her wedding is a BIG DEAL in the greater galaxy (which TBH probably makes Han anxious about it). For her to have just left the last second looks bad and will undoubtedly go through the gossip circles so fast and just be bad. Also there’s all the money spent on it making it a pretty big affair and to call all that off similarly looks bad.

And Luke knows this. So does Leia but she can’t do it.

So Luke is a good brother and takes her place. Which TBH isn’t actually that big of a deal to him. Although it is a bit weird to be put in his sister’s wedding dress and going through all sorts of Alderaan marriage traditions (because it was supposed to be Leia’s marriage) but he has dealt with a lot weirder in his life so whatever. He just sort of wishes he could have had a chance to explain what happened to Han, you know, before they met in front of probably thousands of people to get married.

And honestly, the amount of times Han has had to just roll with whatever plan the twins came up in a split second is high enough that he’s probably fine. Actually I’m sure there’s some hand gesture between the three of them that means “change of plan” and that’s the one Luke gives to Han when Han gives him a questioning head-tilt because he was pretty sure it was Leia he was going to marry. Not Luke. And honestly once he gets that signal he’s just assumes the twins are up to something and whatever he’ll play along for now they’ll explain it to him later (they always do).

So once they finally are alone Han asks what’s up, probably expecting something about an assassination attempt or you know big political stuff, and instead Luke’s explaining that Leia just… couldn’t do it. Which probably cuts Han a bit but again he just makes some joke about it (including the fact that okay which twin is he actually married to now? The paperwork says Leia but Luke’s the one in the honeymoon suite with him and the one he kissed when told to) and moves on.

TBH when Leia finally manages to probably sneak into the room with them she’s apologetic. She does love Han but… couldn’t do the whole wedding thing. Which probably earns her some grumbling about Han not much having been wanting to go through with the massive extravagant wedding (he had probably been advocating for “sneak off and get married somewhere small where nobody knows us”) but didn’t get much of a choice but he gets it and forgives her because he does love her.

“Where is he, Q?” M asked tersely when Q answered the phone.

“I’m not sure. The tracker is offline, ma'am, I–”

“Well, I suggest you get it back on. And quickly.”

“Yes, ma'am.”

Q held in the sigh. This was not the first time that week the tracker had been offline - something that might have gotten Q in trouble if it weren’t for whom the tracker was attached to. Bond had apparently figured out how to deactivate it and had done so periodically throughout his mission. It was unsafe and negligent, not to mention it pissed Q off to no end.

“Q.”

“One moment, ma'am,” he said as his fingers flew over the keyboard.

He opened the program on his computer and went through the process of reactivating it manually, as he had done each time previously.

“Well, he appears to be on Earth,” Q said as the program came back online.

M did not respond and Q cleared his throat.

“England, specifically,” he said as the map zoomed in. “London, south of the Thames, along Oval Pl–”

Q clamped his mouth closed and pursed his lips.

“Q? What is it?”

“Sorry, ma'am,” he said, “I have to go to the loo.”

“The loo? Can’t that wai–”

He quickly pressed the button on the phone and ended the call. He was certain to catch bloody hell for that later, but not before he unleashed some of his own. After grabbing his jacket, he left the building and caught the afternoon bus, rode it to the juncture of Dorset and Meadow. Then he walked the few blocks to his apartment, stomped up the stairs to the door, and opened it to be greeted by Bond standing in his kitchen and making a sandwich.

“Welcome home, love. Would you like me to make you one?”

“What I would like is for you to stop turning off your tracker, and to report to M as soon as you get back from a mission.”

“I was on my way. Just needed a bite first.”

“In that case, I hope you’re ready to get your ass chewed out–”

“Oh? Are you offering?” Bond asked with a smirk.

It took Q a few moments to realize what Bond was getting at, but when he did he felt his face flush and he frowned. “I’m not one to reward bad behavior.”

“And if I was good?”

“That would be cause for celebration indeed.”

Bond hummed. “Then perhaps I should start with this.”

He came over and grabbed Q’s chin, tilted his head back and pressed their mouths together, ran his tongue over Q’s lips–

“Am I interrupting something?”

They split apart and turned towards the apartment door where M had just entered sporting a deep frown and a stern glare.

Shit.

“I’m glad to see you’ve made it back to London, 007, but I think you’re priorities are a little off the mark. We have things to discuss.”

“In my defense he wasn’t supposed to fall off the roof.”

M ignored him and looked at Q. “You and I need to talk as well.”

“Yes, ma’am.”

“I have a car waiting outside. Let’s shove off.” She turned pointedly and walked out of Q’s apartment.

“I think that went well,” Bond said.

Q elbowed him in the side.

sad organa thought for the day: i headcanon that bail and breha knew about the deathstar going to alderaan a couple hours before the planet was destroyed and had the choice to leave, seeing as they were the royal family they would be priority to get off planet. however, they had heard that leia had been captured by the empire and that she was going to be executed so they thought she was dead. so instead of leaving alderaan they decided to stay and die with their people because they thought their daughter was dead so they had no desire nor any need to keep on living without her.

favorite things about the cullen romance:

  • how he quickly shuts the door behind some of his troops in a frantic attempt to let you both have the tower to yourselves
  • how he takes you to his childhood town and is oh-so careful about it
  • leather gloves
  • how meticulously he picks his words, trying to make them right
  • who doesn’t want to kiss a man in uniform
  • (that they actually address his lyrium addiction praise be)
  • when you knock something off of his desk and when you go to apologize he throws every priority off of his desk in one sweep so the only thing on it will be you and him. nothing else.
  • he throws everything off his desk
  • he throws eveRYTHING OFF HIS DESK

Apologies to @nijiru, @agentpiku, and @legrandfoyer for this part. I didn’t mean for it to take such a dark turn but after I started, I just couldn’t stop! I hope you still enjoy it anyway. This is the final part to The Beast. Enjoy, my darlings!

Prompt[s]: Pleeeeease make a third part… ❤❤

I think you did a great job on that second part of “The Beast” :) I feel like you even made room for a third part if you ever wanted to on how Loki and the readers relationship would evolve from there.

Aaahh I loved ‘the beast’! …  It would be great to see more of them if you ever decide to do a part three :3

‘The Beast’ (Part 3)

Part 2

It had been 3 years. Though still not accustomed to the idea, Thor had accepted his brother’s rule and obeyed it. However, at your insistence, he was made a member of Loki’s council, with the deciding vote on any ultimatums. There were matters of delicacy that could be discussed with honesty and fairness as a result.

“The council thinks that you should be looking to take a queen,” you said as you accompanied his majesty through the corridors.
“They would think that,” he snarled. It was his one gripe with his role. He’d intended to abolish the need for marriage to remain part of the monarchy – it was exceedingly unfair – but other issues had taken priority.

“I know your opinions on it,” you smirked, turning a couple of pages on your clipboard, “but I’ve drawn up a list of potential candidates anyway. I think with some careful evaluation we can find someone that the people would approve of, with enough political experience and wisdom to benefit the regime.”
“I’ve seen your list,” Loki snorted and you raised a cautionary eyebrow, warning him to watch his tongue. “and whilst I agree with the suggestions, I can think of another who better fits your criteria. The people are familiar with her already too.”

“Fine,” you said, releasing the paper and returning your focus to the notes on top. You had other business to attend to, and you studied the notes for it as you spoke. “I’ll make the necessary arrangements for you to pitch your suggestion to the council. The sooner we get this in motion, the better.”
“I agree,” Loki said as he lowered himself onto one knee, “but I’d prefer to actually ask you first.” Your eyes remained focused on your clipboard, your finger moving down the paper.
“Yeah, sure, I’ll let you know what I think about her” you said, completely oblivious. “I’ll get Thor in the loop too so that he can give his judgement. He’ll appreciate that.”

You continued to mutter to yourself about details of this and that as you left Loki on the floor, completely absorbed in your clipboard. He rolled his eyes and eventually stood up. Perhaps he’d try again later.
