I'm a simmering ball of Pens hate with no current rooting interest in the Metro; would you care to give me a short rundown on the Flyers? (Younger ones especially, I know all about and am delighted by Simmonds and Giroux and co.)

My dearest, you’ve absolutely come to the right place. You want to know about the young Flyers? Get some snacks, put your reading glasses on, and pull up a chair because I’ve got a lot to tell you.

The Flyers prospect pool is really talented and really promising. Like, really promising. The amount of talent that’s going to be NHL-ready within the next few years is slightly orgasmic overwhelming at times. Since he took over as GM, Ron Hextall has focused mostly on drafting and building from within and his infamous patience with development has Flyers fans excited and ready for the dividends to finally pay off.

Look for Flyers development camp this summer. Especially for Shit the Beach.

The rest of this is…. really long. So I’m gonna put it under a cut. Enjoy!

So, theres little things like "i hate you, now fuck me" that people latch onto and I think you said you didnt expect the big reaction? Are there other little things you threw into either of your stories hoping people would notice but no one has? Hopefully that makes sense, sorry if it doesnt!

People latch into the things you absolutely don’t expect! ‘I hate you, now fuck me’ was just supposed to be a clarification line to prove that Viktor knew what he was getting into with Yuuri and that Yuuri wasn’t just leading him on by making Viktor think Yuuri was in love with him or anything. But somehow it’s become an ‘iconic’ line!

And there are lots of little things scattered in my story. Some references to other pieces of media that I don’t really mind if people notice or not because I just had fun writing them. Some reoccurring themes that most people don’t seem to really see like the fact that there has been religious imagery in every chapter of obs&bh tying in with Belle (which is something that will continue) and the fact that both Yuuri and Viktor compare each other to stars. Yuuri says it a lot about Viktor in umfb&mha and in obs&bh it’s both in the title and Viktor’s to go to comparison for Yuuri is the sun. He compares Yuuri or his smile/laughs etc to the sun a lot, his free skate in the last chapter was to a song called Sun and Moon where his own costume involved moonstones and his nickname for Yuuri that will appear later is the Russian pet name for sunshine.

Then there are a few big things that I thought I had made clear but obviously didn’t make clear enough. Yuuri’s 'other lovers’ from chapter 12 as present tense not past I thought people would see instantly but it seemed most didn’t until I said it explicitly here on tumblr. Why Viktor thinks Yuuri knows he’s in love but doesn’t return the feelings is another. I tried to make it clear in umfb&mha and obviously didn’t make it clear enough so I tried to do it AGAIN and still I think a lot of people missed it. I originally wanted to clear up that mystery before I wrote obs&bh but since it didn’t come through well enough in the last fic I’ve decided now to not say it and keep it a secret until the moment happens!

Bitty Adopts Tater Like He Did Chowder

Stay with me here.

Aside from them having food names, Chowder and Tater are like adorable rays of sunshine who will fuck you up on the rink. Both of them really like Jack. More importantly, both are a long way from home.

Of course, Bitty would mother the fuck out of Tater. What the hell kind of question was that? He and Jack are the least subtle boyfriends ever in the history of secret relationships.

So say Jack talks about how Tater seems a bit down and maybe he’s feeling homesick? Bitty doesn’t even think twice about it. Because that sweet Russian ray of sunshine. He researches Russian dishes that could survive the trip to Providence and he sends Jack a care package for Tater (along with things for Jack himself).

Fav andreil hcs?

i have so many headcanons you don’t even know. also i know this took forever im so sorry i tried to make it long to make it up to you aah

  • first is that the two of them definitely get in andrew’s car and drive to columbia by themselves at least once a month
    • they both want to spend a calm, stress and exy free weekend with each other
  • (i saw a hc about this but since i can’t find/link it, i’ll summarize) they never use pet names for each other in english, but they use endearments in russian
    • neil starts to call andrew sunshine in russian (solnishko) as a joke, but it slowly begins to develop into a name that neil and andrew both associate with him
    • andrew calls neil another common russian endearment, little fox (lisichka) for obvious reasons
      • it’s also the best phrase to use when calming neil down from a panic attack
  • speaking of panic attacks
  • andrew can calm neil down anytime
  • it may take minutes or hours, but it always happens
    • when he’s away for neil’s 5th year, andrew calmed neil down from a panic attack just by talking to him on the phone
    • but the hand on the back of the neck technique always works best
  • also andrew likes to to touch neil’s scars
  • usually during intimate moments, but also sometimes he just rolls over on their couch in the evening and sticks his hand up neil’s shirt
    • the scars identify neil as neil, because they’re so completely unique to him
    • they remind andrew that he is living with neil josten, and he is safe
  • also the cats. neil loVES those cats. no one is allowed to lay a finger on those cats or talk bad about the cats. he loves the cats as much as the foxes
    • kevin tried to insult the cats. neil shut him down so fast no one saw it coming
  • they have the most soft and domestic mornings this is a fact
  • they have a habit of wearing each other’s clothes
    • neil loves andrew’s shirts and hoodies, he loves the way they hang loose on his shoulders
    • andrew prefers neil’s sweatpants to his own because they’re somehow softer and warmer and they flop around his feet
  • they’re the power babysitting couple for the foxes’ kids
    • andrew oddly enough has one of those calming baby personalities
    • he’s one of those people that when he picks up a baby, their head instantly falls to his shoulder before they fall fast asleep
    • and neil is just so good at playing with them
    • once he gets used to the tiny humans he participates in tea parties, chases them around pretending to be a monster, and laughs at every single terrible joke they make
  • they never get married, but the day andrew is finally able to admit to both himself and neil that this is a something is the day they both know
    • that they’ll be together until death do them apart
