so. many. emotions

I just realised

the concept of the heart of the cards is that when you believe in your deck/monsters, you get rewarded by drawing the card you need to win

so in DSOD the last thing Yugi says before passing out is “I believe in the heart of the cards” and then Atem descends in all his glory and wins the duel

so basically

the heart of the cards

rewarded Yugi for his belief

by giving him what he needed to win

Atem

why is this movie causing me so many emotions

because that’s what Yugioh does to me, that’s why

Greatest night of my life :)

This past Friday, I was finally able to see BTS perform live in Newark and it by far was the most incredible experience that I have ever had! For me, this was a “third time’s the charm” kind of event. Back in 2015, I happened to stumble upon them at the end of their live in Odaiba (after trying to find if they would be in Japan). Then, I missed my chance to watch the Epilogue tour in Manila the following year. So, this was “fate” in my mind to finally make seeing them perform reality!

There’s so much that I want to say and so many emotions that I want to convey but words wouldn’t be enough to express what I feel. So, first, let me just say THANK YOU BTS! I know you’ll never see this message but I want to express my gratitude for giving me this night. This concert was honestly the most amazing live event that I have ever attended! From the VCRs, to the costumes, to the choreography, to the transitions, and the performances themselves, everything was PURE PERFECTION! I’m still processing that this night actually happened haha

As a fan of BTS from their pre-debut days (I remember counting down the days till No More Dream was released), this concert really struck a chord within me. Watching the opening VCR play, hearing the fans chant and scream in the US, and seeing the sea of ARMY BOMBs nearly brought me to tears on multiple occasions throughout the night. BTS has come so far and grown so much and keep getting better and better with time and I am just so proud and happy for them for all the success and love that they are receiving! Each member was extremely talented and charismatic and the level that they all are on is just so high! While all the performances were perfection, 2 that I would like to point out were Taehyung’s solo and Hobi’s solo. Taehyung has been my favorite member since the beginning so to hear him sing solo and own it was breathtaking! In the end, after NAILING all the high notes in his song, he went for 2 more long high notes and ABSOLUTELY KILLED THEM! Hobi’s solo song is probably my favorite one so I was of course looking forward to seeing him perform it and once that chorus hit, I was blown away by the charisma radiating off of him! 

Thank you again BTS for giving me these memories and for creating music that has the ability to touch and inspire others! To answer Namjoon’s question at the end of the concert: Yes, I will stay with you forever :)

Kim Namjoon! Kim Seokjin! Min Yoongi! Jung Hoseok! Park Jimin! Kim Taehyung! Jeon Jungkook! BTS! <3

Angsty feelings in the tags. Apologies, I just need to talk about this somehow. You can just ignore me please.

The post that gets me every damn time is "on the next chapter of lucky us" every time I see that post I get so happy I literally feel like crying lmaoooo. Then I see a preview and I actually start crying lololol even if it's funny I just have so many emotions it's pretty bad.

I’ll have you know that me and my classmates are commissioning an artist to do a painting of us as a thank you present for our instructors

and in it, I’ll be holding a goblet that two or three readers will be crying into.

This is my legacy.

I’m starting to think that Victor is not planning on returning to the ice. Yes, it’s still not conclusive at this point, but with the release of Episode 9? It’s getting to the point where I believe that maybe Victor is thinking about retiring.

Remember this scene from Episode 8:

When Victor was interviewed regarding his return to skating, this was his answer. He wanted to wait for the GPF to be over before making any announcement regarding his own career.

Being a coach, Victor turned the subject towards praising Yuuri’s skills and promoting the skate during the interview, which prompted one reporter to ask:

Victor doesn’t actually answer the reporter-he just smiles and even uses Yurio to evade doing so, which is successful. And while the reporters were thrown off the scent, it has left us fans to wonder:

What does Victor plan for the future-for that time when the competition for the Grand Prix Final is finally over?

It reminded me of one scene from Episode 2. It was during Yakov’s, Victor’s former coach, interview.

Now, Yakov may just be saying this out of disappointment from Victor leaving, but it also got me thinking if this was some kind of foreshadowing of the end of Victor’s career as a skater.

We do know he was in a slump by the time the anime rolls around from this commentary by Yurio in Episode 2.

Victor himself is aware that his achievements are nothing new anymore. He’s won competitions so many times that I guess people aren’t expecting any surprises from the Russian skater. He had slowly been losing his inspiration with regards to skating, about what he could do to thrill the audience.

But then, Yuuri came into his life. 

Recall what Minako had said in Episode 1:

And I think Victor realized it when he watched Yuuri’s rendition of the program.

Something about Yuuri caught Victor’s attention, and it gave him a new idea, an inspiration, if you will. It was something that made him try a different path than that of a skater: being a coach.

In the onsen, Victor had offered to coach Yuuri to help him win the Grand Prix Final. Looking back now, I guess Episode 1 gave us a deadline from the very beginning. That the story of Victor being a coach ends once the GPF is over. Maybe, Victor thought that by being Yuuri’s coach for a while would help him get some motivation to get him back into skating.

But, something changed along the way. As Victor and Yuuri went through their journey as student and coach, a different aspect of their relationship also bloomed. We were there to watch as they both fell in love with each other.

Victor never saw Yuuri as merely a skater. Please bear in mind that from the beginning, Victor tried to get to know everything Yuuri by asking all sorts of questions. That enabled both of them to support each other, even if they had fumbled at some attempts.
And yes, I’m talking about Victor making Yuuri cry on Episode 7.

Whatever they went through though, their relationship came out stronger together. And I believe Victor realized this as well. They were not merely student and coach, what he and Yuuri share had now become something more. Which, in turn, affects whatever he had been planning for himself when the GPF finally comes to an end.

And that ending, it’s right around the corner. Yuuri was thinking of it too.

Like I said in this post:

“and…” what? Was Yuuri thinking about them separating, going different ways?

after watching this again, Yuuri didn’t sound sad or depressed about his thoughts at the time. It was more like, “I have something I want after the GPF; I’ve made up my mind”. Which somehow made it more positive for me.

Yuuri has decided to make Victor stop being his coach. But the tone of his voice didn’t give me the impression of negativity, the opposite actually.

Was Yuuri thinking that once Victor was not his coach anymore, once he had retired from skating, could he and Victor start something new, together albeit in a different aspect? I would like to believe so.

Episode 9 also told us that Victor was thinking about what happens next too from their reunion at the airport.

And Yuuri…

Yuuri’s unintentional proposal,

which Victor points out and accepts,

that Yuuri does not negate.

We were all very happy at this point, weren’t we? So were the both of them. Until YOI hit us with more feels.

Victor: I wish you’d never retire.

From my earlier post:

Since Yuuri wanted Victor to stay with him until he retired, Victor expresses the sentiment of not wanting Yuuri to do so.

Victor wants to stay with Yuuri forever, to never leave the skater’s side.

He was not expecting that, not at all. He was thinking that Victor agreed to stay until he stops skating. But Victor, the goner, doesn’t want it that way

Yuuri is finally realizing and getting it into his head that Victor doesn’t want to leave his side. I think he was so overcome with emotion that he gets tears in his eyes.

Yuuri is finally starting to believe that Victor will stay with him. That Victor wants to stay with him and never leave.

This is made all the more poignant by the reminder that their time as student and coach is coming to a close. Some may think of it negatively, but I don’t believe we should view it as so.

Just before that line, they were hinting at a marriage proposal. Victor himself expresses his wish of not ending their time together, that he wants to stay as Yuuri’s coach.

Which brings us full circle to why I am posting this in the first place.

Victor, a legendary skater, who everyone is waiting for to come back on the ice, is willing to stay as a coach for Yuuri so that they can stay together.

It hits me now that maybe the time they had apart, that one or two days that separated them, made Victor realize how much he wants to remain beside Yuuri. So much so that he was willing to leave his skating career behind.

He left the ice to find inspiration, but he found someone he now wants to protect. He found someone he loved so much he was willing to give up skating professionally.

This doesn’t mean that Yuuri didn’t love Victor with the same intensity, with the same capacity for sacrifice. No.

Yuuri was thinking of making Victor step down as his coach and return to skating, return to Russia, after the GPF, whether he won gold or not. He was willing to be separated from Victor if that was what Victor wanted, what would make the other man happy.

So, what happens when the Grand Prix Final ends?

Yuuri may yet change his mind about retiring, or Victor may choose to retire with Yuuri. whatever their future holds, I want to believe that they will do it together as a unit and not as separate entities.

That marriage proposal was put there for a reason. Let’s believe in the power of love that Victor and Yuuri has taught and shown us.

What else could you call this kind of ability to sacrifice, to think of the other person more than yourself? They have set the standards high for any kind of love story, in my opinion. I can never look at any sort of romance the same without comparing them to these two. And this is from a sports anime.

Thank you for reading this. And remember:

LOVE WINS!

I still can’t get over how Alex is at a loss for words about describing Maggie. “She’s so-” like there aren’t words big enough or perfect enough to describe how she feels about Maggie and how important she is to her. You can see her light up thinking about her. You can see the warmth and comfort wash over her as she pictures Maggie and describes her. “She’s smart, tough, beautiful,” then Alex repeats “beautiful” for emphasis. It is Maggie’s inner and outer beauty that makes her “so beautiful”. Maggie is a beauty that she has never seen before. She is a beautiful light that helps Alex see her inner beauty, like Kara said “so are you”, as well as making the world a brighter more hopeful beautiful place.

the script of this comic is not mine, but actually from the EVER so talented @franklyfilthyfantasies who captures both characters i n c r e d i b l y !! PLEASE go read their wonderful story behind this comic starting with part 1 here and part 2 here  !! ♡♡ Thank u again @franklyfilthyfantasies this was the bEST

Headcanon that after Matt is rescued, he starts travelling the galaxy, fighting on behalf of the rebellion and doing whatever he can to screw over the Galra. But he also develops a habit of picking up souvenirs on each of the planets and moons he lands on - just little stones or leaves or sticks, whatever he can find - whenever he thinks of Shiro or has a moment where he wishes Shiro is with him. He collects and keeps all of these little trinkets in a box that he carries with him, promising himself that one day he’ll get to show Shiro his collection.

Then he and Shiro are finally reunited. Matt brings out the box and explains what it is before handing it over. Shiro thinks it’s adorable that Matt made a little collection for him, but then he opens it up and is absolutely gobsmacked when he looks inside. 

Because the box is filled to the brim and there have to be hundreds or thousands of little rocks and shells and plants and twigs and just so many things from so many planets and this is how often Matt thought of him and this is how much Matt missed him this is physical proof of Matt’s feelings for him and he’s just so overwhelmed he has to put the box down and rest his head in his hands and just breathe because holy god, Matt.

And then Matt has to sheepishly admit that this is just the first box.

Let’s appreciate that Killian Jones, the Captain Hook, realized that he needed to talk to someone about how he was feeling. A man notorious for internalizing his pain and his emotional struggles. A man who, in the past, would  much rather have drown his problems in the bottom of a rum barrel than have anybody share the burden. If this isn’t a sign of growth and emotional maturity, I don’t know what is honestly. It also shows that Killian encouraging Emma to talk to Archie wasn’t some hollow sign of support. He’s practicing what he preaches, holding himself to same expectation he held to Emma. It’s such a big step for him. This was such a huge moment for him on a personal level and it makes me so proud.
