-Beka and Leo are both majoring in music and are friends because Beka was once remixing Still Alive for a gig and Leo LOVED his version.
-His most popular mixes are actually those of classical music. Beka wants everyone to appreciate the classics.
-Beka met his DJ friends once while walking home from skating practice and they were about to rob him when they realized he is that guy with the sick beats!!!
-Beka is the designated smol of the group. He may not be as big, buff or scary as them but they adore him and what he does.
-Beka bans DJ friends from seeing him skate because they cause such an uproar…he thinks they’re worse than Yuri’s Angels sometimes.
-DJ friends are very protective of him. While they smoke, drink etc. they keep Beka away from that “Heyy man it’s okay for us but don’t you dare try this stuff for yourself!”
-DJ friends also apologise to Beka and correct themselves when they curse infront of him “Oh fuk! Sorry Otabek! I mean oh fudge!”
-He introduces DJ friends to classic literature/music because deep down we all know Beka is still a nerd with a badass passion.
-Beka didn’t explicitly tell them he had a crush on Yuri but they noticed how happy he gets when he watches Yuri skate on tv.
-DJ friends steal Beka’s phone to stalk Yuri and are like “Daaaam bro you scored a hottie! What’s your secret???”
-When Beka returned from the tea date his DJ friends wanted all the details “Well??? How was it??? Did you get some???” Beka just gives them a thumbs up and they throw him the DOPEST PARTY EVER because they are sooo proud of him!
-DJ friends are actually just as mad as we fangirls are that Beka’s bronze was stolen from him…R.I.P JJ.
-The guy who books Beka’s gigs is SUPER RICH but also SUPER CHILL and thinks Beka can make in the industry if he decides to make DJing a full time thing.
-The first time Beka invites Yuri to a gig DJ friends notice how nervous he is to make everything is perfect and they decide to make sure nothing would ever ruin any of Otayuri’s dates.
-At first Yuri gets real jealous of DJ friends but they assure him Beka is all for him.
-Beka and DJ friends have this real complicated handshake that Yuri is determined to master!
-DJ friends are the biggest Otayuri shippers! Someone flirts with one of them??? “Hey you slut! Don’t you see they’re taken???” Someone thinks their relationship is wrong??? “WTF you been saying about our OTP???”
-Don’t ever try to mess with Otayuri because DJ friends are always around to beat the shiz out of you if you even look at them funny!
-You just KNOW Viktuuri/Mila/Grandpa Plisetsky will interrogate Beka AGAIN for not telling them before about this “double life” of his and DJ friends!
-His DJ name probably used to be something badass but when Beka’s DJ friends heared Yuri call him Beka there was no going back.
-Otayuri gift eachother cat ear headphones and they use them ALL THE TIME.
Okay. But consider this. Ice skater extrordinare Eunwoo and hyped up fanboy ballerina Moonbin showing Eunwoo how to do a spin on a non slippery surface on metal slabs of thin blade
oh my god !!!!! yeS ANON I LOVE IT THANK THA N K i got this during work and yelped a bit a lot
ok so Bin’s dad’s friend has a small job opening and he’s looking for an intern to temporarily fill the job
it’s mostly just working backstage for a show
and this mostly consists of cleaning the green room before rehearsals start, putting up a buffet line for staffs and performers and sweeping the green room after everyone leaves
and also a lot of busy stuff in between like shadowing stage managers and following whoever needs help and stuff
idk how to say this in english but in singapore we call them saikang warriors
and so Bin’s dad, looking at his son’s plans of lazing around the house all summer, signs him up immediately without even asking Bin
not that he really needed to ask Bin
because the moment he mentions “The Ice Prince: a Musical on Ice” as a casual conversation starter Bin leaps at him and starts talking a mile a minute about the most amazing lead actor slash ice skater
truly what is that title why am i bullshit at naming things
and when Bin’s dad casually slips in that his friend might have offered Bin a job as a backstage crew intern
cr a z y
backstory time Bin is a danseur in a small ballet school
i mean, he’s easily one of the best in the school
if not for Minhyuk he’d easily be the principal ballerino too
and recently his ballet teacher brought their class out to watch the musical, saying something about paying attention to the muscles needed for ice skating and how that compares to ballet and something else about the choreography
although honestly the moment Bin laid eyes on the lead actor he’ll admit everything his teacher asked him to pay attention to flew out of his head
forget the plot, forget the musical, forget the choreography
all he paid attention to throughout the entire thing was the lead
how he executed beautiful bracket turns and butterfly jumps and death spirals and biellmann spins
i’m so sorry if i get this wrong rip i’m reading off wikipedia as i go if anyone knows anything about ice skating or ballet feel free to correct me!!!!
and all the while singing and delivering his lines perfectly
literally ????? Bin’s idol
so naturally when Bin‘s offered the chance to work backstage and meet cha Eunwoo, ice skater extraordinaire,
he jumps at the chance (no pun intended)
and so the first day he walks into his new job, in a simple black t-shirt and fitting jeans, nametag affixed on his shirt, bright and eager to help wherever he can,
only to see Eunwoo casually doing a split in the middle of the green room
oh my god
in the flesh
in real life
casually, in a t-shirt and loose sweats
in the middle of a room
i mean Bin can do a mean front split balance, sometimes en pointe, sometimes not, but
truly he has never seen someone look more beautiful doing a split than Cha Eunwoo
Eunwoo isn’t even smiling he’s so focussed on stretching
His hair is totally mussed up but he looks so regal still
Bin is so shook
But he swallows the nerves and goes about with his mop and starts cleaning up around the room
In relative silence
Until a very amused voice comes from the back, “you can stop avoiding the centre of the room now, I’m done stretching"
And wow truly Bin has heard Eunwoo speak before
I mean, obviously,
Given that he’s in a musical
But wow his voice irl??????? A magical???
Bin thinks “Ice Prince” is a great title because Eunwoo’s voice sounds kind of like if you have a glassful of ice and was clinking it around
And Bin flushes and scrambles for a response and goes: “uh yessir"
Only for Eunwoo to laugh
And wow really if you think his voice with a hint of smile was beautiful
His voice with a lot of smile
Bin’s not sure how fast you can fall in love with someone without meeting their eyes or looking into their face directly
But he’s pretty sure that voice has him already dead
"don’t call me sir, I don’t think I’m that much older than you"
And he really doesn’t think so - this new intern looks about 20???
There’s no way he’s that much younger than Eunwoo
And Eunwoo is pretty young too, if he does say so himself
"I’m???? the new intern yes hello"
Cute when flustered, Eunwoo’s brain notes
Must fluster more, Eunwoo’s brain notes
"yes, I gathered"
Cue Bin spluttering because wow what possessed him to inform Cha Eunwoo, star of the show, now sitting cross legged in the middle of the room, that he, an intern, mopping around the room, was (guess what?!) an intern
Must fluster more, Eunwoo’s brain insists
Ok fine, Eunwoo thinks, I’ll get up and go over
Maybe follow some romance field manuals
Lean close to him and make him blush or whatever
(Haha "or whatever” playing it cool here, Eunwoo, Eunwoo’s brain snorts)
Cue Eunwoo trying to get up from the floor
Cue Eunwoo’s foot deciding it would be hilarious if he couldn’t
Cue Eunwoo tumbling back onto the floor
Bin: oh my god
Bin: oh mY GOD ARE YOU OK
Because this is the lead actor on ice!!!!! what is he going to do if he can’t move !!!!!!!!!
Eunwoo just chuckling in embarrassment because
Wow truly good job, foot, Eunwoo’s brain snorts
If you weren’t so busy staring at the very fit new intern perhaps I would have moved better, Eunwoo’s foot retorts
Eunwoo’s brain is stunned into silence for a while
@ Bin:“Ah it’s normal"
@ Bin: "Lmao did u expect people on ice to be that graceful on land too"
"But you look so good on ice????? You do all these beautiful bracket turns and spirals and splits and??????”
Eunwoo flushing because wow it’s one thing hearing it from coach Jinjin and from critics but hearing it from this cute human blinking at him from behind a mop????
It’s a whole new level of praise
Maybe it’s because you think he’s cute, Eunwoo’s brain hums
(Oh my god shut up???)
Eunwoo flushing even more
Bin, now slightly embarrassed bc Eunwoo hasn’t responded other than blushing quite a bit: “well yeah I bet you’ve heard it quite a bit before"
Eunwoo, attempting to be suave and saying "well, not from anyone as cute as you are” while leaning back on his hands
Not today, his brain cheers
Eunwoo landing on his back with his hands splayed out like he’s cheering too
He’s crying inside, he really is
And cute intern boy is probably leaning on his mop and judging him now, Eunwoo doesn’t dare to look
Until he feels feet shuffling alongside him
He opens his eyes
And looks right into Bin’s worried ones
Wow his eyes are really nice
His hair’s really nice too
Jesus what is this intern
“uh are you alright” @ Eunwoo
Bin’s gripping his mop and blinking anxiously
And Eunwoo’s trying to stand up and get his bearings but
Immediately falls on his ass again because heck nobody’s supposed to be able to stand up from a lying position that fast without getting dizzy
And all that echoes in Bin’s mind is "lmao did u expect people on ice to be that graceful on land too"
And slowly he starts to smirk
Because Cha Eunwoo, ice skating extraordinaire, prince of the ice rink and king of musical theatre,
And is currently lying on the ground blinking up at Bin with the most beautiful eyes with the darkest eyelashes Bin has ever seen in his life
And for a while Bin is speechless, staring mindlessly at Eunwoo,
Until he remembers courtesy lmao and offers to help Eunwoo up
And Eunwoo’s clutching onto Bin’s hand praying that Bin doesn’t mention anything about how he’s basically a klutz on land but then all he sees are bright eyes and a toothy smile and
Bin, hauling Eunwoo to his feet: "Wow you can spin all you want on ice but the second you get on dry land you’re basically a klutz aren’t you"
agree with him, Eunwoo’s brain demands
Eunwoo, stuttering a bit: "um yes, probably”
And he sees Bin’s face crinkle into the cutest smile and decides that as much of a lil shit his brain is, it’s worth embarrassing himself to see this boy smile
And they stand awkwardly there for a while, Bin leaning against his mop and Eunwoo not-so-subtly staring at Bin’s face
Until Bin coughs and Eunwoo startles and
“Well I should continue str-"
"Uh I should go back to clea-"
And they both laugh because wow clean or stretch all you want all you’re going to be thinking of for the next hour are each other buddies let me tell you
Eunwoo sliding glances over at the cute intern occasionally
Eventually deciding to attempt to do a scratch spin in socks
Even though coach Jinjin tells him never to try anything not on ice because he’s just an idiot with two left feet when he’s not on ice
But to impress the cute guy mopping his way around the room???
Yes, Eunwoo’s brain says
Do it, Eunwoo’s brain says
And so Eunwoo gets into position and starts trying to push off into a spin
No, Eunwoo’s feet suggest brightly
Fall down! Eunwoo’s feet suggest, beaming
And so Eunwoo does, staggering against soft cushions laid strategically around the room by Jinjin, familiar by now with the nonsense Eunwoo tries to pull even though he’s not on ice
And so Bin watches as the Ice Prince, star of the show, impresser of multiple ice skating judges,
Trips over his own feet into a pile of cushions on the floor
And usually when younger danseurs try Fouetté spins in class Bin snorts and leaves a nicer person (usually Minhyuk) to help them
But this time,,,,,,,,,,,,, Bin can’t help,,,, but,,,,
He pushes his mop to the corner and toes off his sneakers and slides over to help Eunwoo up from the pile of cushions
His feet are big, Eunwoo’s brain helpfully supplies
You know what else is bi-
Eunwoo shakes his head violently and takes Bin’s outstretched hand and gets up
Just in time for Bin to let go
(Eunwoo’s hand silently mourns the loss of rough warm palm against his own)
And execute a perfect fouetté spin
WHAT THE HECK IS THIS INTERN
Eunwoo doesn’t even bother hiding it he just openly gapes at Bin
Like ???????????? WhO
"ah,,, I’m a danseur” ok tbh Bin’s a little unnerved by Eunwoo’s staring like he’s handsome and all but
Bin really can’t take anymore staring or looking into Eunwoo’s eyes because wow truly he’s standing close enough to count Eunwoo’s eyelashes if he looks up he might have a heart attack and cry
Eunwoo, echoing: “a danseur,,,,,,,,"
Ok that explains all the lean muscle & fitness & it definitely explains the perfect Not-on-ice scratch spin Bin just did
not his cute smile though, eunwoo thinks that’s just a him thing
"A fouetté spin,” Bin quietly corrects
He said that all out loud ??? :—-)
Lmao judging by Bin’s blush he truly did wow thanks Eunwoo way to go
“I can teach you if you’d like” and now both Bin and Eunwoo are flushed red and shyly avoiding each other’s gaze
Good wood - how have I never seen this before? Might just be the coolest pad I’ve posted to date… especially if you’re a hardcore skater. The ‘Merello House’ by WMR architects in Pichilemu, a coastal resort southwest of Santiago in central Chile.
You know, there’s this one quote that keeps coming back to me from Dragon’s Den.
Andromeda is the protector of Polaris, a beautiful kingdom of crystal and ice, until the day the evil wizard Orion casts a curse on her. She’ll wander the world forever… but no matter how she searches, she’ll never find her way home.
So Andromeda makes the best of it. She tries. Every day she follows the North Star, which lights the way to Polaris, and on her way she saves people and stops Orion from hurting others… but she never breaks the curse.
Brutal? Maybe. I’ve always found it… beautiful. Sad, of course, but… Andromeda chooses not to accept any of the places she saves. She insists on going to this home, this place she can never go back to. And insists. And insists.
Because it calls back to something we heard earlier.
Y’know – looking at the guy he became, it’s easy for me to forget the kid Mick Mercury used to be. Easy for me to forget the feeling I had when I first saw him, leaning against his hovercycle and telling stories about the city outside Oldtown, where the buildings were made of gold and nobody ever went to sleep hungry, where there weren’t any alcoholic parents or foreclosed schools or murders right outside your bedroom window. Kids up and down the block would gather around him, bringing their scuffed-up faces and hearts, and they’d listen – and you could tell his stories were like food to them.
He was lying, of course. I knew that from minute one. But I stuck around because I was just as hungry as the rest of them. Still am, I think.
So tomorrow I’ll pocket my blaster and I’ll knock on doors and I’ll plan the first battle of my war. But for now I think I’ll sit here awhile next to the King of the Freeway and I’ll think about the past, the loose handful of Good Ol’ Days I can scrape together, and I’ll listen to him spin yarns and lie and build shining cities in the air between us.
His stories don’t make them real, of course. But I need to hear em anyway. Because without someone to tell us what those cities look like… how would we know we found one when we got there?
Juno is Andromeda. That much I think is clear.
But Mick isn’t ever going to be the hero. He can’t– because he’s the one holding the book.
Also he needs to get a job at Northstar because he was doing their job for them since he was a kid. Get on that, Ramses.

Since everyone is doing intro post to their favorite skaters, what the hell. Might as well do one of my own. Many of my favorites already have introductions (and much better than this) but there is one which I haven’t found and I really wanted to do: Javier Fernandez. Many people just know him because he’s Yuzuru Hanyu’s training partner, but this guy here has an awesome story of his own.
Warning: Very, VERY, long post. Read at your own risk.
Tfw the official ISU twitter posted about Malaysia’s Julian Yee qualifying for the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics with the hashtag #HistoryMaker [x]
(Coincidence? Perhaps. But it certainly isn’t the first time ISU twitter has directly or indirectlyreferencedYuri on ICE before. As you may have noticed from my sidebar, I’m Malaysian, so this is highly amusing to me. )
Yoongi was helpful around the house in a way that fits the system you run the household. He did very well with chores like washing the dishes, sweeping the floor, doing laundry and occasional mopping if he’s up for extra cardio (especially on weeks where he didn’t go out as much).
There are also days where he’s a lazy potato and wants to indulge in sofa time and that comes with a complete opposite to go all out and for an amount of time it’s do or die. He goes full-mode cleaning from the windows to the cabinets (excluding miniature decors because no one has time for that), laundry hung out by the balcony and lastly, heading straight to mopping the floor before he does the final bit that would be a reward for all the hard work.
Yoongi lives for the way your eyes widen at how spotless everything looks and feels at the bottom of your feet. Just waking up and in your pyjamas, he knows you’re rubbing your eyes to make sure this is all not a dream and when you look up to lock gazes with him, he confirms it’s most definitely not.
See, Yoongi knows when your heart is uneasy or when you feel like there’s a boulder blocking your way. He doesn’t say it out into words but his actions prove that he feels what you feel even when you don’t tell him what you feel. Yoongi was a man of actions (which got him into trouble for a good amount of times) and that’s what you like about him.
He grins and sets the sponge mop to the side, eyes twinkling with mischief, “I just waxed the floor. Go grab your fluffy socks,”
Yoongi watches as you battle with hesitance with your mouth opening and closing, finding the words to say. He raises a hand before you can try to think of anything and surprising enough, you oblige and keep quiet. Your eyes follow him and it’s until you turn around when he walks past you to head into the bedroom. With a couple of thuds and sounds of him rummaging through things, he appears again with…
Your body moves according to how he wants, starting with one foot and then the other as he slips on your socks. When he stands, he manages to do the same for himself and less than two minutes, the both of you are solidly on the tiled floor with a cheaper version to ice skates, home edition.
Even though your heart is weighing you down, Yoongi effortlessly lifts it up when he clutches onto your hand and drags you down the hall. It’s like falling in love with him all over again, being reminded of the adrenaline rushing through your veins when you first saw him and then slowing down to match your heartbeats before they take off again and again and again. The light returns to your eyes and Yoongi stops the pair of you in time, knees buckling forward and into the sofa with his arms cradling you to lessen the impact when you land on your back.
In the midst of heavy breathing and sweat trickling down your foreheads, you manage a small smile and a kiss you press to his lips.
“Thank you, Yoongi,”
He responds with a longer kiss, and a wider smile, “Anytime, Y/N.”
