Yuri!!! On Stage Event Report!

So today (4/29/2017) I went to the Yuri on Ice Yuri on Stage event. To clarify though, I was not at the actual Tokyo event, rather a live viewing at a local movie theater. Which of course does alter the experience but it’s the next best thing. At first I thought the theater was only doing the afternoon session, but very last minute I ended up being able to attend both!

So uh, Russian sandwich anyone? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)


When you’re on spring break but legit every single one of your teachers assigns homework because of all the “free time” you’ll have:

so like my fav thing about matt murdock is that he got beat tf up by some bad guys and barely escaped with his life and hes just walking through dark streets bleedin out and passes a dumpster and thinks ah yes this is where i belong rn and he just climbs into the trash with his open wounds and waits out the bad situation hes in like bless his lil vigilante heart i mean we’ve all felt like climbing into the trash to avoid facing the consequences of our actions but this man actually did it


ok guys so this info is from Facebook but here ya go

So, I’m not sure if anyone has been keeping up-to-date with the Yuri!!! On Stage announcements, but here’s a very quick recap of some /interesting/ canon things that went down!

- Yuuri & Viktor played a stripping game and Yuuri lost and woke up with Viktor’s underwear on his head
- at some point Yuuri vomits and I’m not sure if it’s the morning after or during some “fun” with Viktor lol
- Yurio yelling a lot and Seung-Gil tells Yuuri to put some clothes on
- “OVERCOME CHIHOKO” is written in Russian on Yuuri’s back
- *flashback to the night before drunk as heck* Viktor and Chris flirting hard
- Viktor called Yurio ‘kitten’
- Chris flirting with Yuuri saying “do you want to…drink my…sake?” and Yuuri replies with “it’s our sake” lol
- Leo and Guang-Hong say “adults are gross”
- Chris is SAVAGE and tells them “drink from your mother’s breast and go to beddy bye” LOL
- Yuuri getting jealous that Viktor isn’t paying attention to him:
Yuuri: Viktorrrrrr, stop looking at Chris and look at meeee
Viktor: I am looking at you!
Yuuri: You’re not looking enough!!
- Queue to what seems to be a questionable conversation but turns out to not be what they are insinuating lol:
Yuuri: Viktor…do it with me
Viktor: Do what?
Yuuri: That thing we do, when we drink…do that…with me.
- At some point Yurio calls Yuuri ‘Katsuki shit Yuuri!’
- Yurio got mad at Yuuri for 'hiding Viktor’ because Viktor disappeared to god knows where and everyone was blaming it on Yurio lol
- Otabek and Yurio arguing over possible show names for Yurio, where Otabek came up with the majority of them:
俺vs時代(me vs generation)
- At some point Viktor and Yuuri get into the topic of flexibility and Yuuri claims 'Chihoko is more flexible than you’ to which Viktor thinks Yuuri is on about an ex and gets HELLA JEALOUS
- Queue this conversation after Viktor hearing Chinhoko:
Yuuri (hella drunk): are youuuu madddd
Viktor: No
Yuuri: Yes you areeeeee
Viktor’s internal monologue: Oh…I was so mad
- Viktor then having a crisis thinking he knew everything about Yuuri…BUT WHO IS THIS CHIHOKO?
- Viktor is now BUTT NAKED on top of the ninja castle: IS THIS BETTER THAN CHIHOKO?
Yuuri: WHO THE HELL IS THAT? I could search the whole world, nobody is better than you!
- Turns out that 'Chihoko’ is a mispronunciation from Yuuri in his drunken state and what he meant to say was 'Sachihoko’ which is a fish statue which sits on top of the ninja castle
- Viktor, while butt naked atop the ninja castle, tries to stretch to look like the sachihoko fish statue lol
- Viktor then invitied Yuuri to strip and join him on the roof because “the view is better when we’re naked” LOL
- Viktor also shouted from atop the ninja castle “they were Yuuri’s past, but I am his NOW!”
- Seung-gil is apparently an affectionate drunk and kissed Nishigori lol

A couple of minor other tid-bits:
- Yurio brought the piroshki to Yuuri to cheer him up as Viktor wasn’t there/worried about Makkachin
- When Yurio was in Hasetsu and said they were going to find Viktor for ramen, it just ended up being Yuuri and Yurio going for ramen together

Also probably the biggest announcement (which I have already seen posted) is WE’RE GETTING A MOVIE! The movie isn’t going to be a recap of anything and is going to be completely new material! I’ve heard that it could possibly be about the time in between in Hasetsu and everywhere else that we didn’t see and showing how Yuuri and Viktor got to be as close as they are!

SO all-in-all we have learnt that Viktor and Yuuri can never keep their clothes on while drunk and both get extremely jealous, and BASICALLY EVERYONE IS EXTRA AS HECK.

hey spanish / july 2016 / Karolina Koryl

I’m a little too fond of the headcanon that Mika curses purely in Russian


getting ready for another year of graphic design studies more like preparing for a funeral (but black is such a happy color indeed)

anonymous asked:

About Kaz as Asian, I've always wondered which irl countries inspired the nationalities in the books? Like sure, the Shu are Asian, but which part of Asia??? What about the rest??

*cracks history nerd knuckles* 

Shu Han has the same name as one of the three major states that competed over the complete control of China during the third century. It’s named “Shu” for its geographical location in China, and “Han” for its founders’ direct connection to the Han dynasty, which was just ending at that time. I think it’s safe to say that area during the Three Kingdoms period was what Leigh used as a basis for Kuwei’s homeland. 

Ravka was obviously inspired from Imperial Russia. The book covers of the Grisha Trilogy show the Grand Palace in Os Alta, which bears a striking resemblance to the tower tops of St. Basil’s Cathedral in Moscow. The characters from there even have Russian names - very famous ones, too. The Darkling - Aleksander - is named after countless Czar Alexanders that ruled over Russia, which very much imitates how there were “many Darklings” that kept Ravka “safe” from the Shadow Fold. Our beloved Nikolai Lanstov shares the same name with the last czar of Russia who was subsequently assassinated by the Bolsheviks, the Marxist revolutionary party led by Vladmir Lenin, in a church with his whole family. Hopefully, Nikolai doesn’t go the same way (Leigh Bardugo, please don’t let this be foreshadowing). And how everyone addressed the king and queen as “tsar” and “tsaritsa”? That’s how everyone addressed the imperial Russian monarchs back in Russia’s dynastic days. 

The Kaelish are known for their red hair, their tendency to stay in their own lane, and their tradition to not cause too much drama in history. Judging from those three characteristics, I’d assume that Scotland is the inspiration for their land. But then again, we know very little about them.

Judging from Ketterdam’s worship of trade and business (even their god Ghezen rules over commerce and industry) I speculate Kerch was inspired from the Netherlands, most specifically the Dutch Republic. Not only did this country have one of the most powerful trading companies in the world during the 17th century, but they also gained their power through trade and industry because they had little natural resources to supply themselves. The people here were so focused on commerce that eventually the Dutch merchants grew more powerful than the so-called aristocracy (Council of Merchants, anyone?)

I was a little confused on where Fjerda would be for a moment before realizing the kingdom’s name was literally a play on the word fjord. So it had to be a Scandinavian country - Norway, Sweden, or Finland. However, I discovered that the term was initially used in Norway. My suspicions about Fjerda being Norway were further confirmed when I remembered Matthias mentioning that ash trees are sacred to Djel, and the one in the middle of the White Island was where the druskelle listened to his voice. It can’t be coincidence that Yggdrasil, the mythical tree that connected the nine worlds of Norse mythology, was an ash tree as well, connected to Odin, one of the most complex gods to exist in Norse mythos. 

Novyi Zem was difficult, but then I found that Ms. Bardugo had answered this one for me: the country was mostly inspired by Australia and the American colonies. Which makes a lot of sense, considering how there’s a mass amount of Sudanese Australians, Kenyan Australians, Nigerian Australians, South African Australians, Somali Australians, Ghanaian Australians, and Zimbabwean Australians due to the British Empire’s slavery network. And who can forget how America exploited countless Africans for slavery and indentured workers as well? The Zemeni mostly work on farms of their own and handle guns (see: their entrance in Kuwei’s auction in CK), but that’s pretty much it. I suspect there’s a reason behind the homogeneity of the Zemeni, considering how Leigh Bardugo emphasized the theme of slavery and slave trade in the SOC duology. 

What country are Inej’s people inspired from, you ask? The answer is heartbreakingly easy. The Ravkan government has persecuted the Suli, who have to travel across the country like wandering nomads, never permanently settling anywhere because they are a nationless state, unwelcome at Ravkan doors. Thus, most of them are living the effects of diaspora; Inej acts as a perfect example. The Suli are the equivalent of the Romani in the duology, who have been persecuted, enslaved, and most of all, forced under slave labor throughout history.
