I can’t stop thinking about flint’s Name Origin Story lately
Did I ever tell you where that name came from?…I told you of my grandfather who raised me…Well, in his youth he was a deckhand on a privateer off the coast of Massachusetts. And one night he was alone on the late watch at anchor in the Boston Harbor when he sees this man climbing out of the water and onto his ship. A stranger…The stranger approaches my grandfather and asks him for a little rum. Man said that he’d fled his fishing trawler. Accused of killing another man. And when asked his name, the man simply replied Mr. Flint. This stranger, he never said whether he was guilty of the killing or why he chose that ship or where he was bound, he just sat there. Eventually, he asked my grandfather for a little more rum from below. My grandfather went off to fetch it, but when he returned the man was gone…It was as if the sea had conjured that man out of nothing and then taken him back for some unknowable purpose.
I feel like they have to be circling back to this in some way. this idea that some iteration of treasure island flint’s end has already been told. a man named flint who asks james mcgraw’s grandfather to fetchaft the rum?!? a man who has been accused of doing dark things, but who seems nothing but a ghost, conjured out of the water and then taken back?!?
every time I read this I’m just……..can this story really end in any other way than with Flint™ being returned to the sea…….
“There may be ways of severing oneself in that way…sacrificing one part to save the other.”
or is part of the tragedy of it all that nothing is ever sharp enough to make the cut
me: haha hey guys do u dare me to retell the history of ryden

them: we’re not
me: *pulls out throam* this is so wild you guys you’re so fucked up for making me do this
so you know, after rewatching episode 10 for the 145th time, there was this little moment that somehow got me thinking. and my god it might be a stretch so just bear with me here ok?
but after their training in barcelona, victor asks yuuri what he wants to do next and then proceeds to say this:
that makes good sense, sure, but what we then see from the montage that follows is that it is still quite early? like they spend the entire day sightseeing, so i couldn’t help but wonder why victor would suggest to rest already.
then it hit me.
at this point we have, through other metas, established that victor has a ring for yuuri, so what if the suggestion he comes with was meant to be an excuse to get yuuri back to their hotel room so they could get some privacy. because victor wanted to pop the question right there. he wanted to propose in the privacy of their own hotel room, but couldn’t say no to yuuri’s plead on seeing the city and then yuuri freaking beat him to it instead. lmao you tried victor.
You stare at him; your heart is full of happiness,
your hands start to caresses his face “Bucky, are you saying this because you
are afraid of losing me?” He shakes his head a no and you can see the
disappointment in his eyes.
“You don’t have to say anything, especially if you are
not ready; I just wanted you to know that.” You smile at him, he tries to put
you down but you don’t let him “Bucky, I love you, I just don’t want you to say
it for the wrong reasons”
He places his lips on yours, he places you two in bed
with him hovering you. His hands are rooming all over body; he takes his shirt of your body and looks at you
but before he can kiss you, you stop him “Bucky, are you sure?”
