sky is your limit

look into your eyes

Summary: Five times Yuri Plisetsky’s eyes had left Otabek helpless, even if he didn’t know it at first. (word count: 2303)


1. and the sky’s the limit

He did not have the natural talent, nor did he have a lot of resources. Compared to the others, the ones with so much more, he was nothing. It felt easy to just give up, leave Russia, and forget about his dream of becoming an ice skater and making his country proud.

And honestly, he was about to do exactly that. Not only was he stuck with students 2-3 years younger than he was, he still keeps getting scolded for not being able to do what they could.

All those thoughts were erased from him when he looks up and sees a boy - probably ten or eleven, at most - do the exercise perfectly, lifting his leg and pointing his toes exactly as the instructor had told. But it wasn’t that that had captivated him.

09.30.16 || Goodbye, September! As usual, my schedule isn’t complete yet, but next week’s spread is pretty much finished. I still have some papers and reading I need to complete, but today is still a pretty good day. 🍃

Dream as big as you can, because that is what you will become overtime. The sky is not the limit, your mind is. Liam Tinker [x]

Boy you got me helpless
Look into your eyes, and the sky’s the limit, I’m helpless
Down for the count, and I’m drownin’ in ‘em!

Please forgive me for what I’ve done to your masterpiece LMM, I just really wanted to draw a loyal as hell blue kid from a big family who always feels second best swooning over over a hotheaded, reckless orphan soldier with beautiful eyes

….but I went with Lance and Keith instead of Eliza and Alexander

YO @ichiwashername-o!! I’m your Secret Santa for the @undertalesecretsanta! 8D 

I actually wasn’t exactly sure what to draw you, at first. (Your prompt was GB!Papyrus, so the sky was the limit) So have some long-overdue What Are Friends For-related fanart! 

I really enjoyed drawing the WAFF version of GB!Papyrus - he’s a little more slender and draconic than my Puppyrus. If you guys haven’t yet, you can give the fanfic a read right here, or check out Ichi’s Tumblr!

The second image is a scene from Chapter 10 of WAFF. It features a flashback of how the Skelebros met Grillby after they escaped from Gaster’s lab. Sans isn’t doing so well, hence why he’s being carried by Grillby, there. And our favourite fire elemental’s the one who gives Papyrus his iconic scarf. It’s probably one of the scenes that stuck with me the most.

The last image is just me trying to sort out how to draw WAFF Pap’s skull, but I think they turned out alright, so have those as well! WAFF Papyrus is pretty sheepish in quite a few scenes. Big dragon dork.

But yeah. Merry Christmas, Ichi! : D 

I was this close to animating the entire musical number of We Are Number One featuring Magester and his students, but I ran out of time. I hope this suffices, in the end.

It’s easy to write off the idea that there are just some things you won’t be able to accomplish as laziness or lack of effort, to say, yes, you CAN be anything you want, just get back on your feet and keep trying.  Why are you giving up?

It’s easy to write off the idea that you can accomplish the things you set your mind to, that you can be anything you want within obvious physical limitations as cheese, as some pie-in-the-sky delusion people have that doesn’t take into account your disabilities.  Limitations aren’t all in the mind, you asshats, now leave me alone.

The answer is usually somewhere in the middle.

Overcoming our disabilities and thriving is necessary to function in the world, but it often feels like they bar us from achieving our dreams.  This is untrue–but the whole “limitations are a product of the mind” thing?  We’re nothing but our minds.  Does it make you a lesser person to not have the willpower to commit to your most difficult dreams?  Hell no.  There are neurotypical people who can’t commit to a diet.  Hard works sucks and is hard and you have to work at it.  Tautologies aside, I spent the better part of a decade undergoing grueling psychological self-conditioning that I wouldn’t wish on anybody else in order to learn the ins and outs of social math.  Was it worthwhile?  Well, I wouldn’t be here yelling at cartoons for a living otherwise, so, yeah, I’d say it was worthwhile for me.  Is it worthwhile for someone else?  That’s for them to decide.

Your limitations are generally all in your head, but you’re allowed to choose whether to push them or not.

I got kind of lost in the middle of that somewhere and went a-rambling for the rest of it, but what I’m trying to say is this: don’t ever think less of yourself for choosing what makes your life better, in either direction.
