route ramblings

thinking about it, this week’s episode did a lot to dispel any remaining fear i had about a power imbalance or ulterior motives in victor and yuuri’s relationship, and it’s basically because of one line.

because remember, we’ve only very recently started to hear victor’s internal dialogue, and it told us crucially here that this is exactly what victor was doing. not because of any malicious intent, sure; he was genuinely trying to help yuuri, and based on his own experiences, an extreme ultimatum like the one he presented to yuuri was the best that he could come up with. nonetheless, it was designed to manipulate yuuri in a way, to motivate him, to snap him out of his stress. 

and the thing is, even in a very well done story, that’s what we might reasonably have expected to happen: yuuri, filled with a new drive not to lose victor, someone he admires immensely, as his coach/friend/partner, delivers a stunning performance and all is resolved. that’s just how the trope seems to go.

instead, yuuri immediately sees through what victor was doing, recognizes it as out of character for victor’s coaching style and how he treats yuuri in general, and calls him the fuck out on it, because yeah, that’s unhealthy, it’s not okay, and yuuri knows it, knows that he’s in and deserves a relationship with mutual honesty and respect. 

regardless of his anxiety, his insecurities, this is not a relationship where yuuri is on thin ice, and it’s lovely to see.

Anonymous: You’re right, she is proud and if she did not outright deny the throne herself, she would fight for it. She would have a whole court and people to please, though. And what if Sakura was determined to be a wonderful Queen like Mikoto after given the news that she could become the new heir?

Would Hinoka be happy becoming the Queen? Or would she be happier becoming a leading general and helping her sister rise to the top, having her in a position that would ensure Hinoka herself could protect her without any doubt in her mind? The war between Nohr and Hoshido might be over at this point, but what is there stopping another one? This AU is still dark.

And trust me, Hinoka isn’t the only Hoshidan sister getting the stick in this AU, haha. Sakura isn’t safe, as much as Hinoka might think she is. But I’ve said too much right now.


roy0103(Who I cannot tag): In the AU, Camilla becomes a Queen who would rather settle disputes with violence and war. Long story short, she would have several rebellions and uprisings to deal with. One of these rebellion attacks leaves her with that scar.


I also saw someone reblog the previous post saying that they felt personally attacked.

This is just a fan speculated idea. You don’t need to like it.

The ideas that were bounced between Miranda and I were not pretty, they were actually very depressing. And making these headcanons for us is fun.

Let us have our fun. Our fun does not need to change your view of fun.

Be My Princess - Joshua’s Main Route in Gree - Route Ramblings [Last Half of Chapter 18]

Chapter 18 - Your Hand…

Oh, gosh! Second half, last half, the climax(?). Spoilers ahead again! And lots and lots of dialogue. Hopefully, I can just summarize it, but it’s a lot of information to swallow.

Okay, here we go! Time to find out the truth! With Joshua by our side.

The entire Jumin route in a nutshell, tbh. 

YES.  I AM NOT YOUR CAT, YOU DUM-DUM.

Am I the only one who did NOT enjoy it?  (⋟﹏⋞)  That dude went from 0 to 100 faster than you can say Elizabeth the 3rd.  I was really missing Zen the whole time, especially when he’d get all (justifiably) protective over the MC dealing with Jumin’s ridiculously obsessive behavior.  (╥_╥)  Anyone else?

Question for you guys! I’m debating if I want to start the new part tonight of “Free to be You and Me” or somehow start this overdue promise of starting the bloopers. I mean, I really want to try and tackle the first season of the gag reel, but I have one problem. How the hell do put actors messing up into words for people to enjoy? Is there a certain style you guys would like? Or would you rather have me focus on the second part of “Free to be You and Me”?

Writing for an episode is so easy because it’s sort of like a regular storyline base. But with bloopers, there’s about fifteen scenes wrapped up in the first few minutes and writing it down in words somehow is weird to me. Don’t get me wrong, I am totally up for a challenge. But having a bit of help trying to figure out about putting it into words would really help! Hopefully you guys understand what I’m trying to explain here, and my lack of progress with this!

After watching Jack’s third episode of the Undertale Genocide Route, I want to take a moment to discuss Sans.

[[spoilers, obviously]]


Sans was relentlessly difficult for me. I was only able to finally beat him after over 4 hours of gameplay spread out over 2 days, and with a total of 76 deaths (I kept a tally; after my 11th death, Sans told me to do so. So I did). And then there was the emotional pain and torment once I finally won, to the point where I was sobbing with my head in my hands, horrified and disgusted by what I had done. Even after all that, I almost reset right then and there.

(So @therealjacksepticeye, good luck with that battle.)

But that’s kind of the point with Sans. Since he knows about the different timelines and the resets and everything, he knows that simply killing you isn’t enough, because you’ll just come back for more. So his attacks are monstrously difficult and basically require multiple deaths in order for you to do your best to memorize them. His hopes hearken back to Flowey’s dialogue at the beginning of the Pacifist Route: “But what will you do if you meet a relentless killer? You’ll die and you’ll die and you’ll die. Until you tire of trying. What will you do then? Will you kill out of frustration? Or will you give up entirely on this world?”

Sans hopes to frustrate you into either 1: shutting off the game and forgetting about it, never to return, or 2: resetting the timeline and foregoing your Genocide Route to prevent you from royally screwing everything up.

Sans is the savior of the Underground, the savior of Undertale.

But in a true Genocide Route, one where you indeed kill him and everyone else, he fails.

And you feel your sins crawling on your back.
