probably one of my favorite looks

2

honestly maybe i’m over-thinking this, but this is probably one of my favorite heat moves in the whole game? like, not because of how it looks or the style of it but like mainly because of Majima himself. one thing this game does really well is showing Kiryu and Majima’s characters through their fighting styles. Kiryu’s basic brawler style is much more brutal and less refined than in the later games because he’s young and inexperienced, but almost every single one of Majima’s attacks in his thug style is precise and skillful.

and then there’s this one.

like Majima’s whole thing in the story is about him going over the edge and turning into who he is in the later games, and while for most of the game that side of him is covered up because he doesn’t have a choice and is always under control of Sagawa, it’s always there, but it only starts to come out near the end of the game (and here). just the way he stumbles carelessly over before locking the guy down and beating the fuck out of him, it’s way more vicious than Kiryu’s version of the same move even though Majima’s supposed to be the more skillful fighter.

I DEMAND YOUR FAVORITE SELFIE!!! (pls...)

OH GOSH–I TAKE SO LITTLE SELFIES THOUGH ORZ OKAY, OF ALL TIME OR RECENTLY?? 

recently, i really like this one (…it’s not technically a selfie but still) bc i’m surrounded in my aesthetic and i look so autumn-y:

of all time is still this one because if im being honest, it’s probably the most photogenic pic i’ve ever taken of myself:

I got to thinking recently and I realized that Yuri on Ice is the first anime I’ve felt passionate about in years.

It’s the first anime in a long time for me, where I wanted to get involved with the fandom, write fanfiction, support artists and their beautiful art, analyze scenes from the anime and create theories, share memes and jokes and just have fun with people who love the same show.

The new YOI episode is always the highlight of my week, it’s the one thing I look forward to. It’s what I get excited about for 6 days and rave about for the next 6 days until the new one is out.

I probably haven’t felt like this for any anime since 2014.

And finding love for anime when I was beginning to think that I might never find a new favorite, might never enjoy something the way I did at the when I first encountered the medium is a beautiful thing.

I also think that I’m not alone with these feelings. I think this anime means a lot to many people, whether it’s because of the characters and the narrative, the animation, the sport itself, the representation and diversity within the cast, or just their love for their ships and memes and fun.

I know there are many people out there who are already tired of hearing about Yuri on Ice all the time, whether it’s from their friends, on their dash, in the anime community in general or wherever else. I know there are people out there who see the fans of the show, see how much they talk about it and soon label them as ‘stupid’ or ‘childish’ or ‘insane’ or whatever else. But please, try to understand that the reason we pay so much attention to it is because it’s important to us.

I know it’s tiring, I know you may not agree with us on many issues, but please bear with us. All of this will only last for another 7-8 weeks. Please let us enjoy this short period of time with all the fangirling/boying we wish to give it without making us feel guilty for it. As long as no one is getting hurt, I am rather certain that we do not deserve to feel bad just for being excited and enjoying an anime.

Yuri on Ice allowed me to meet a number of great people, it made me want to return to ice skating even though I quit the sport years ago, it made me want to return to playing piano even though I gave up years ago, it gave me hope in the anime industry as whole, and most importantly it made me love an anime even though I thought I stopped being capable of that years ago.

I’m just a queer woman from Eastern Europe but Yuri on Ice made me feel like I matter. I will never be ashamed of being a fan of the show.

decided i’d try to draw them all like this ?? so i did the cousins !!

This is the single best page in Berserk and I will kill all who disagree. I could probably write an entire book on why I love it so much. Guts’ massive growth as a character is perfectly shown in a span of only four panels and two lines of dialogue. It’s incredibly simple but equally as powerful. He’s become a towering and monstrous black shadow, while also becoming a significantly more kind and caring person. The way that Berserk’s hero slowly becomes more demonic in appearance, while it’s villain becomes more angelic looking as the series goes on, is one of my favorite things about Berserk. Also Guts says yo and I think that’s hilarious and adorable for some reason.

Underrated* but extremely good shots of Yuuri from episode twelve:

There are a lot. There’s so much Yuuri I put it under a read more starting about halfway through. 

Yuuri please stop honey you are too good and too selfless. HE WANTS TO STAY WITH YOU FOREVER. PLEASE TALK TO EACH OTHER YOU HELPLESS DORKS. 

Screaming. 

Hamster hat only adds to his preciousness, honestly. 

This shot, animated is one of my favorite bits of animation in the series. It’s so good?

Sweet as can be.

Yuuri, probably: I doubt I have many fans…

LOOK AT HIM

Is it the costume sparkling or is it Yuuri himself?

BOY!!!

My longest yeah boi ever. 

look like hell I’m not including this gorgeous moment.

when he literally SCREAMS and it’s wonderful.

I’m not crying you’re crying (we’re all crying).

you are an absolute angel.

precious Yuuri so nervous for his scores after the skate of his life (his eyelashes continue to be amazing). 

Keep reading

Okay so...

This is one of my favorite Ziam moments:

The fact that they even kept this in the video is still surprising to me. Anyway, what I love about it is how nonchalant it is; Zayn looks perfectly content to have Liam on his lap and is untroubled even when Liam starts acting silly for the camera. It just looks like an every day thing. 

However, what made this moment better/worse for me was when I saw this:

It is clearly from the same day/place (SNL) though I don’t know if this was before or after the previous gif. Once again Liam is being silly for the camera while Zayn could care less (talking or warming up) in the background. From this moment we can see that there is a TV on the wall. 

Now looking back at this moment:

I used to not be sure if Zayn was talking to someone out of frame but now I’m fairly certain he was just watching TV. Though its quick, it also looks like Liam’s head is tilted up in the direction of the screen before he turns to the camera. So…they were just casually sitting like this while watching TV. Pardon my language but that is some cute domestic shit. 

I don’t know why I love it but I do. 

*not my gifs

“To the people who look at the stars and wish, Rhys.”
Rhys clinked his glass against mine. “To the stars who listen— and the dreams that are answered.“

So, I got these pictures of my Feyre Cosplay a while ago and I’m in love. I enjoy just being her SO much, she’s probably my favorite character to do. ❤️
The wig is not how I imagined her hair, but I didn’t have time to get a new one and I thought it was fitting. I’m going to get a new one soon!
You can’t imagine how much I miss my tattoo arm. I want it back 😭

Enough of my thoughts, it’s credit time!
Pictures were taken by Miclast (Facebook) and the lovely costume design is from @taratjah .
I asked her before starting the costume if I could use her artwork and she allowed me to do so. Which is awesome and I’m forever grateful <3
(That’s actually a very important point. Always ask the artist before just redoing their art and respect their choice!)

fanfic rec list

Okay y’all, I don’t read much fanfiction, but what I have read so far has been amazing and I really wanted to share some of my favorites! Enjoy :)

Never Stop Until The Grave by Naraht. AO3, WIP, 2/3 chapters completed. Rated M.

Thoughts: This is probably my favorite YOI fic. It’s Victor POV, set directly after the season ends, and deals with the aftermath of Victor’s decision to coach Yuuri and compete at the same time. It is gorgeously, hauntingly written, with plenty of sweetness and double the bite. The descriptions of St. Petersburg alone are enough to make you shiver. An incredibly realistic look into the world of Russian athletics and Victor’s mind.

Heartbeat by emilyenrose. AO3, one-shot, complete. Rated T.

Thoughts: Beautiful, quiet relationship introspection. Set after The Kiss™, and features cuddling and listening to each other’s heartbeats. Sweet and so, so good.

live with a man who knows you by jinlian. AO3, one-shot, complete. Rated T.

Thoughts: I said this in my tags when I reblogged it, but this fic is so achingly tender and warm and sensual and romantic and just. Wow. It’s worth reading for that opening glove scene alone, and the writing is gorgeous and atmospheric. Good stuff.

Russian For Dummies by cutthroatpixie. AO3, one-shot, complete. Rated T.

Thoughts: College!AU, in which Victor pretends he doesn’t speak Russian in order to woo a cute boy (Yuuri, obviously) who wanders into one of his study sessions. This fic is so funny and adorable while managing to be completely in-character, and if you’re having a bad day, it will definitely put a smile on your face.

the piano is not firewood yet by silvercistern. AO3, one-shot, complete. Rated M.

Thoughts: Some of the best characterization I’ve ever seen in a fic. Balances humour and sexiness perfectly. It’s sweet and funny and deals with the communication issues between these idiots in a really creative and cute way. A favorite, for sure.

it’s you i want to go on seeing by aubreyli/100demons. AO3, one-shot, complete. Rated T.

Thoughts: This may be T-rated (and it never veers into mature territory) but it is without a doubt the sexiest fic I have ever read. It’s 2000 words of Victor zipping Yuuri into the Eros costume, and it is very /eros/ indeed. Whew. Don’t read this one in public kiddos, you’ll be blushing for sure.

I’ve been picking which fan child should I do first sooo perhaps I shall share you one of my other favorite ships; Sansby~ I still need to look for the source that inspired me to do this but anyways :DD

I’m pretty happy about his outfit; I figured he’d always be semi-formal and casual. He probably works part time at his father’s bar to earn some extra cash and uh..share puns with customers lel~

He calls himself Ghost Rider sometimes, or Comic Rider(given by Impact cuz he’s a cute lil shit). The Amazing Papyton and him obviously get along very well <:

and I ended this with a stupid fun cause I’m a filthy sinner nyeheh~

anonymous asked:

what are your absolute favorite yoonmin fics? Someone has probably asked you this before, but I've scrolled back for so long with no results, and you're my absolute favorite yoonmin blog so I'd love love love to know

my favourite fics are here! but some more recent ones are:

  • IFHY: love hurts. yoongi and jimin realise this.
  • light me up (i’ll keep you warm): (in which jimin has a crush, yells a lot, and maybe falls into like.)
  • look it up: yoongi stumbles on a “yoonmin” video while trying to find his most viewed fancam. upon realizing the fans have noticed he tends to stare at jimin, yoongi becomes hyperaware of their interactions. did the fans realize something he himself didn’t even know?
  • want me: jimin needs attention and his boyfriend is kind of being a huge dick.
  • shall we date?: jimin just wants to stay home and play games, but his roommate has other ideas. or: 4 times taehyung sets jimin up on a terrible blind date and 1 time it isn’t so bad.
  • make me your wish: jimin wants to see the flowers, but yoongi might have given him a little more…. and maybe vice versa. (au where the genie wish-granting system is an actual legalized business, and each city is appointed one “wish-granter” whose job is to offer its inhabitants three wishes in their lifetime.)
  • who’d have known: yoongi thinks jimin is too happy. jimin’s just trying to be happy and make others feel the same.
  • out of your arms (i’m out of my mind): if being right means being without yoongi, jimin would rather live a wrong doing life.
  • perfect blue: while contemplating the loss of his job in the middle of an urban mini-mart on white day, yoongi meets a strange truck driver and decides that going on an impromptu road trip would be good for him.
  • deeply addicted (to the prison that is you): yoongi becomes infatuated with jimin’s ass… and then falls for jimin himself. 
  • helpless: yoongi goes into his rut and jimin helps him through it for the first time. (aka they have gross, messy sex non-stop for a few days) 
  • when you smile like that: jimin falls in love with yoongi every time he smiles at jimin. 
  • pull me closer in the backseat of your rover: jimin had just wanted to get off. he didn’t think he’d end up with a boyfriend at the end of it all.or, another friends with benefits au.
  • perfect is the sound of you breaking: jimin likes being good, he likes being perfect. 
  • practice makes: the facts in the case of the unfortunate min yoongi: the gay that can’t suck dick. 
  • praise me like you should :“i like it when you compliment me,” he bursts, “you have this way of saying things,” he’s staring down at yoongi’s lap, too afraid to meet his feline-like stare, “it’s nice, how you validate me… how you tell me how good i’m doing at any given thing.” (or: jimin loves to be praised).

ongoing:

  • electric love: the dream jimin is having isn’t feeling so sweet anymore. or, alternatively, the soulmate/abo mashup no one asked for, featuring namjoon as an english tutor, taehyung as a (not so) starving artist, jin and kookie being as sweet as ever, salty suga, helpful hoseok, and emotionally vulnerable jimin.
  • i wrote this for you: jeon jungkook is a frustrated reader who just wants to have a decent conversation with his newly proclaimed favorite author, an up-and-coming young adult novelist min yoongi, and maybe force out the ending of his cliffhanging heartbreaking motherfucking breakthrough debut novel. (a.k.a. a love story told in jungkook’s perspective)
  • just a little company: “we’ll have a strictly business type relationship. you give me company, and i’ll give you money, or buy you whatever you’d like. it’s your choice, you can choose if you’ll take my offer.”
    “it’ll be a no strings thing, hyung? no attachments at all?”
    “nope. i don’t want to date, i have no interest in it right now. you’ll be my.. investment. you’re cute, i’m bored, and i don’t mind splurging a bit.”

The Oathbringer (Stormlight 3) first draft is at 99% ! So I decided to draw some stormlight archive, which I don’t do often enough. They’re my favorite books, but I have trouble bringing the characters to paper in the way I want too (probably because I love the books so much and don’t want to do them injustice). This one turned out ok though :) Kaladin looking all contemplative and stuff.. 

there were a lot of moments in Star Trek Beyond that emotionally compromised me, but as i am irrationally attached to the Enterprise herself i need to vent feels about my very favorite dilithium-powered inanimate object.

The previews made it pretty clear that she was going to be destroyed so it wasn’t a surprise; but watching the extended, gratuitous destruction scene - every puncture to her hull, seeing her nacelles severed, watching the drone ships pick her apart piece by piece - was still painful.

but… 

when Chekov & Kirk are standing looking at the burning ruins of her saucer and kirk says “She still has a few tricks up her sleeve, ” i. lost. mY. SHIT.  OF COURSE SHE DOES BBY. SHE WILL GIVE THE LAST PIECE OF HERSELF FOR YOU.  SHE LOVES YOU ALL.

This is a gift for cupcake @sabomuii! She’s the person who got me into MysMe, so I thought this would be fitting. Yoosung is probably one of her favorite characters in the game and sunflowers are beautiful, so this came out!!! I never drew flowers before but I hope it looks okay. ;v;

Alright sit your butts down, ladies, gentlemen, and all other configurations of being. I’m about to tell you why this latest episode of Steven Universe turned Pearl from probably my least favorite character in the show to one of my favorite characters of anything.


So now that we know that Pearls are mass produced on Homeworld, we know that Pearls are also seen as nothing more than servants. And this fact has made me go from hating Pearl to loving her,

We don’t know how long Pearl was on homeworld, I assume a few thousand years. And she was in this demographic that was seen as inferior. And you know how that happens in the real world. She was looked down on. She wasn’t allowed to excel at anything. She was nothing more than a tool and if she DARES to be anything more than that, she’s a defective threat. This was her LIFE. 

And then she comes to earth, and serves under Rose Quartz. A woman who lets her be more than “just a pearl”. She learns sword fighting. She learns spear fighting. She learns all these things and does all these things that she previously wasn’t allowed to back on homeworld. And for once, she actually feels like she’s worth something. Like she’s proving to all those people who called her “just a pearl” that she’s MORE than a pearl.

And then it all goes to her head. 

She wins the war. She’s proven herself. And now she’s so high on self esteem, something she usually doesn’t have, that she becomes the very person who looked down on her.

She becomes the person who look down on others. 

“You’re a human. You’re a novelty. At best.”

“Humans just lead insignificant lives until their ultimate demise.” 

She’s so used to being looked down on that she absolutely MUST be on top. And thats why she learns so many things and does everything she can to better herself. So she can continue being “more than a pearl.”

And whenever she’s proven wrong, whenever she’s beaten, or threatened, thats when her defenses kick in. That feeling of being “just a pearl” starts flowing, and she’s so desperate to be “more than a pearl” that she gets mean. Rude. Condescending. 

Thats why she hated Greg so much at first. He was taking the one person who believed in her and hogging her all to himself. He was being more to Rose than Pearl was. And she was feeling like “just a pearl” again. So she does whatever she can to fix that. 

She instead comes off as an egotistical bitch.

Then Steven happens. He’s sure of something. He just KNOWS he saw something in the warps. But Pearl knows better. He was seeing things. And than he suddenly says those magic words.

“You’re wrong.”

Whats this?! Pearl thinks. This LITTLE BOY think he knows more than ME?! This is UNNACCEPTABLE.

And she does it again. She refuses to be looked down upon so much that she starts looking down on others herself, and she ABSOLUTELY needs to be right. She desperately tries to prove to Steven that she is “more than a pearl”.

Again. She come off as an egotistical bitch.

Then. Sardonyx. She finally fuses Sardonyx. And thats the breaking point for Pearl. Pearl may have done everything she can to prove she’s “more than a pearl”, but while fusing Sardonyx, she feels something else.

She feel POWERFUL.

She has POWER.

She has a thing that NO OTHER PEARL HAS.

And she gets SO addicted to that power that made her feel superior to ANYTHING, that she wants more. She wants to feel that again. She doesn’t want to feel like “just a pearl” ever again. And she thinks Sardonyx can do that.


And then. She’s caught. Garnet is mad. The one person she doesn’t look down to is outright pissed. And Pearl KNOWS it’s because she FUCKED UP. And now she feel like “just a pearl” more than she has in thousands of years. And when she finally admits it, that she’s “just a pearl”, Garnet shuts her down. Shows her that she’s more than that. She’s her own person.

And now.

Now we have the best part.

Peridot.

Peridot comes in and outright says it.

You’re “just a pearl”

And this sets her off. She’s on the defensive again, and now she’s determined to prove herself again.

But this time it’s different. 


I’m not “More than a pearl”

I’m not “just a pearl”

I am A PEARL.

SO LET ME SHOW YOU WHAT A PEARL CAN DO.


…but she lost the fight. Peridot gets her way, proved to the others that she’s “just a pearl”

And best of all, it doesn’t matter. Steven and the other still came to HER, thinking no less of her. 

And now I think she’s realized that it just doesn’t matter. 


She’s not “just a pearl”

She’s not “more than a pearl”

She’s not “a pearl.”

She’s Pearl

And thats all that matters.
