So for VictuuriWeek day 7, I’d like to talk about the rings and all the various promises they hold. This post is written as a complimentary piece to @lazuliblade‘s amazing meta here (2 metas for 2 rings) so please make sure to read that one as well! In this analysis, we’ll be looking at the various tie-ins the series has to the various layers of meaning represented by the rings.
I’ll be going in the order of how they’re mentioned in Laz’s post so please enjoy!
EDIT: No more bootlegs, sorry :0 see comments for more info
Here’s a list of bootlegs I currently have saved on my computer. If you want any of them, just dm me, I’ll be happy to share the link! Most of these are pretty easy to get, but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I also have not watched a lot (maybe even most?) of them, so I can’t specify the exact casts.

Ahh… good ol’ memories. The very first kiss between Shin and Eun-Tak in episode 6… a kiss so pure, innocent, and naive that all the snowflakes started floating upwards. What is gravity? Apparently it doesn’t work in the presence of these two sweethearts. So what makes this kiss important being their first kiss? Well this kiss set the stage for Shin to start thinking about life instead of dying. This kiss was initiated by Eun-Tak not because she necessarily loved him at the time, but because she didn’t know the consequences of Shin’s sword and what love really encompasses. This kiss compared to their last kiss is totally different in terms of romance and their mutual feelings. Shin was still only learning what it meant to be in love and Eun-Tak was still only desiring love. This is seen in their body language as Eun-Tak was struggling to stay on her tiptoes to hesitantly peck him and Shin’s shoulders were completely slumped forwards in utter dumbstruck. A perfect way to get our silly couple rolling. Despite this kiss being not hot and sexy, I appreciate this kiss as I love Shin’s reaction to Eun-Tak kissing him… to think this supposedly “weak” and “defenseless” girl can easily make this 939 yo Goblin confused and break down his defenses. But I desperately needed more than this kiss.
Now this was a proper “first kiss” of them being an official couple; what better way than for Shin to redeem himself by initiating the kiss while Eun-Tak asked for it in episode 10. The setting was perfect for our silly couple: fun date in a tent while drinking soju, a kick-ass entertaining performance, and a sweet and happy kiss shared between the two. This kiss was literally the definition of happiness as their kiss even has it’s own Sun shining a random light of unknown origin. It was quite hot of Shin to grab her face so gently as he kissed her and then Eun-Tak stole another kiss right afterwards. This made me love Eun-Tak more as she’s not afraid to ask for kisses… I understand why, lol. Just look at who her boyfriend is. I do like this kiss a lot, as said by Eun-Tak herself, “It’s perfect.” It was the perfect kiss to show how they mutually love each other after coming to an agreement that they will both fight to be together as compared to episode 4′s kiss. I wasn’t expecting anything hotter or sexier since our couple finally got together after jumping the hurdle of Eun-Tak finding out the truth behind Shin’s sword. But still, I needed more! lmao
The cute photo booth kiss. That’s all that really needs to be said about this kiss, lol. It was a cute and off-guard peck that Eun-Tak gave to Shin which left him flustered and giggling like a little girl. >.< The funny thing is that Eun-Tak had pure intentions while it left Shin thinking about (most likely) not so pure thoughts … this girl can literally kill Shin on the spot whether she removes his sword or not, lmao. I just can’t get over how Shin caught himself using “tiny” and “small” in the same sentence! And then he proceeded to say he wants to come here every day, lmfao. This entire scene in episode 12 is adorable and especially how pure Eun-Tak’s intentions were to 1) get a picture with him and 2) give him an excuse to see his sister. Of course, it wasn’t enough to satisfy my fangirl desires and I was desperately hoping… praying… for a kiss that would exceed my expectations.
Now we’re talking… this kiss swept me off my feet when Shin turned back to give her such a desperate, passionate, and engraving kiss before his imminent death. THIS WAS THE KISS WE WERE ALL WAITING FOR 13 EPISODES LATER!!! Just look at this beauty! Till this day… I love this kiss so damn much, it’s the kiss of the century. Just look at how Shin cupped her face as he kissed her with such a passion knowing that he might disappear forever. Look at Eun-Tak unable to say or do anything as she just closed her eyes in compliance… worried why he would suddenly kiss her like that. It was the perfect hot and passionate kiss to show how our couple loves each other and wants to be together. THEIR CHEMISTRY WAS OFF THE CHARTS! OMO! The only that that disappointed me about this kiss was how they DIDN’T FULLY CLOSE-UP FILM IT! Like why you gonna film a friggin hot kiss but not show us the whole thing close up??? Ugh… That was the good stuff there. >.> Despite my love for this kiss, I was praying that an even better kiss would happen once she was 29 yo.
This kiss was sooo good… a slightly melancholic kiss that was filled with feels as Shin immediately embraced a frantic Eun-Tak into a kiss as she finally remembered him. All I can say is that this kiss was so good from the angle it was filmed, from how it focused on Shin’s hand tightening on her, and to how both Eun-Tak and Shin’s eyes were filled with so much pain, sadness, and longing for each other. I started ballin like a baby cause they needed to be in each other’s arms and I was so happy when she finally remembered him! Ugh… To think this all happened in episode 15… T.T But this wasn’t the kiss I was waiting for… there was something else I needed to see from the episode 14 preview.
Just another really lovey dovey peck between the two… oh wait… two pecks cause Shin wanted another one, lmao. I just love their height difference… *incoherent giggling* BUT I’M STILL WAITING FOR THE BEST KISS DAMNIT! DON’T FAIL ME GONG YOO!!!
Gifs Credit | Rating : Sexiness = _(꒪ཀ꒪」∠)_, Dirty thoughts = ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡° ), Satisfaction = ∞ w/ too much salt
What more can I say about how much I am absolutely obsessed with this long over-due sexy make out between these two? Just look at how Shin launched at her… but at the same time Shin is such a gentleman as he stopped to make sure she was okay with it.. OF COURSE she would reply back enthusiastically! BUT I DIED WHEN SHE JUMPED AND WRAPPED HER LEGS AROUND HIM! OMG! AND FOR THE LOVE OF ALL MAKE OUTS, when Shin started planting kisses on her face and she was smiling from enjoying his touch… that was the sexiest thing I’ve ever seen!!! BUT DAMNIT! WHO THE FUCK CUTS IN THE MIDDLE OF GONG YOO AND KIM GO EUN’S KISSES??? WHY WOULD YOU DEPRIVE US OF THESE TWO WONDERFULLY AMAZING KISSERS??? WHY COULDN’T YOU SHOW US THE WHOLE DAMN THING??? (╯°益°)╯彡┻━┻
Seriously, the only issue I have with this kiss is that they abruptly cut the kiss at the GOOD part. They could have gradually transitioned out of the scene instead of just cutting in the middle of the kiss; they had plenty of time to add 30 more seconds – oh for goodness sakes, I would’ve been glad to see another hour. PLUS, WHY WOULD YOU NOT SHOW SOMETHING YOU TEASED US IN THE FUCKIN PREVIEW??? Two lovers who defiedtime, God, death, and were finally together would NOT just simply call it a night after sharing a passionate kiss on the couch AFTER staying together overnight in fuckin luxurious hotel (with probably a huge ass bed)… just saying. ┻━┻ ︵ヽ(`Д´)ﾉ︵ ┻━┻
And that’s all folks… I can’t really say that I’m completely satisfied since I love Shintak so much… It makes me sad that Gong Yoo and Kim Go Eun will probably never costar together again since it’s rare for people to costar together a second time. WHAT A SHAME! YOU HAVE TWO AMAZING KISSERS COSTAR TOGETHER AND THAT’S IT? Like I would have been okay if they didn’t show any skin… just some more steamy moments between the two because their love is so fuckin tragic that they deserve some more lovey dovey couple scenes. Ugh… just because I’m a salty grandma, friggin 15 age rating ruined it! At least the kisses got better and better and we got a few Gong Yoo certified kisses in Goblin. T.T

‘American Gods': Bryan Fuller Teases Longer, ‘Much More Exciting’ Season 2
Expect more episodes for Season 2 of Starz’s “American Gods, showrunner Bryan Fuller told TheWrap following the Season 1 finale of the Starz drama.
Season 1 of the series adapted from the novel by Neil Gaiman consisted of 8 episodes, but expect 10 episodes for Season 2 and, perhaps, a faster-paced story.
“Much of the pacing and dreamlike quality of Season 1 was about Shadow Moon’s (Ricky Whittle) mental state, and now that he’s been activated [as a believer], we can expect something a little different from how we’re going to tell the stories,” Fuller previewed.
Whittle’s character made a huge transformation in the Season 1 finale when Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane) revealed his true identity – the Norse god Odin – and Shadow subsequently became a believer.
“Whenever anyone engages in a faith bargain and they commit to it, they change their perspective in a massive way,” Fuller said. “So the story we get to tell with Shadow in the future is one of a character who’s crossed that first benchmark, which was non-believer to believer. Now that he believes, how does he believe? And how will what’s happened with his wife and Mr. Wednesday shift those beliefs? Suffice to say, Shadow will have a much more exciting arc in Season 2 than he did in Season 1.”
The preview recap that’s been buried because it doesn’t fit the “poor Kylo” narrative.
I have no idea if this is real. It sounds a lot more plausible than the first one that used a detail from a previous preview and added something about Kylo, not least of all because the opening scene involves Finn, Poe, and Rose, and fakers tend to forget they exist. It also has the Resistance making a decision that is not noble, which you’d think fandom would love, except it’s followed by Kylo acting very villianous.
It’s a little bit of a bummer that they have so much freedom though, as having censors on Regular Show forced the crew to be more creative and work around things. For example, we got “how in the H are we gonna fix this S” out of that. Another result of that was we also got that bizarre machine gun that literally shot pillows instead of bullets. Also, sodas in paper bags.
But having said that…Regular Show was awesome! And this is JG Quintel we’re talking about. He’ll give us something good. It already looks funny from the previews.
i’ve seen a couple posts about boots today and this is a psa that if u want to know what i have just message me! i don’t have a very extensive collection yet so if you have anything to trade that’d be cool, but i’m also 100% happy to gift whatever!
Hello! First of all, thank you for posting all interviews, pictures and TLJ spoilers. :-) I want you to know there is a Jedi Council Forum user describing a 10-min-footage of TLJ at Cinépolis. It is nothing like your anon´s post. So can we presume there were several screenings? What do you think? Take a look at JCF, "Early screenings / early buzz & reactions" thread, page 11, Tasu Leech post.
I just saw that, and yeah it definitely seems to fit better within those 10 minutes. It’s also way more spoiler-y if true, so I won’t link it here.
That anon from yesterday did mention something about another preview which was a lot longer:
So it seems like that other person may have seen the longer one?
This anon was still the first to tell us there would be a 10 min preview hours before it was confirmed, so their info was credible, but I’ll wait and see. There could be another person who can corroborate them.
Hi! I just left a little bit on kofi (your stories always brighten my day!) and saw your message about writing a drabble for kofi supporters. Would you mind writing anything johnchurch, or something from the ZoT universe, or a preview of your taakitz fic? Any of those would be great! And absolutely no rush, I totally get how school is starting and that can be crazy. Thanks for being so wonderful!!
i saw that, thank you so much?! you’re way too generous! I think the epilogue will be able to sustain anything else from ZoT (you’ll understand when i post it!)
so here’s a preview of upcoming mad scientist!taako/detective!kravitz fic whichhhhhhhh has yet to be named. at all.
Kravitz looks down at the note in his hand, then back up at the building he’s standing in front of. It’s the most renowned magic school in the land, and he would be a fool not to recognize it. Everyone who is anyone in the wizarding world has either graduated or worked here at some point in their life.
But he isn’t here for education. Kravitz maneuvers around the winding halls of the school with discretion, not necessarily hiding but keeping himself out of suspicion. The academy is large, given it hosts the majority of magical students in the nation. It’s dramatic, all tall ceilings, marble floors, and dark wood columns supporting the walls up unto balconies leading into the second floor.
He reads over the words on the report in his glove clad hand once more.
‘3/27 Retrieve results of cryogenic particle detector from T.T., Room #416 at A.A.A.′
Although he doesn’t know who T.T. might be, Kravitz is familiar with the Academy of Arcane Arts, or Triple A. It doesn’t take a detective to find a given room number, and yet here he is, standing in front of a door reading ‘416 - Transmutation Laboratory #2.’ He knocks on the closed door with the back of his hand.
After a minute, he repeats the action.
No response comes.
Kravitz lets himself inside, pulling open the heavy mahogany door. Immediately, he finds the room is not empty–across the expanse of the messy laboratory, an elf stands with his back to the door, stirring something rapidly. “Excuse me?” Kravitz says, a little louder than usual in case he just hadn’t heard him at the door.
“I heard you knocking and didn’t answer for a reason,” the man says with a lilt to his voice. “I told you I don’t give extra credit to wimps who can’t even demand it.”
His brows furrow together in slight frustration at the misunderstanding. So this man is a professor? Odd, given he wasn’t aware the teachers’ dress code allowed for shorts and crop tops. Especially in a laboratory, though he is wearing a sheer lab coat on top of it. “I’m not a student–I came to speak with the supervisor of this department.”
The elf barks out a laugh at finally sets down what he’s been working on. When he turns and faces Kravitz fully, he crosses his arms over his chest and leans back against the counter he’d been busy at. “You’re looking at him, sweetheart. You aren’t here to beg for your kid, are you?”
It had been a possibility, but Kravitz didn’t want to believe it. Facing him like this, he can read his name tag where ‘Dr. Taako Taaco - Director of Transmutational Sciences’ is printed in fine print. He can also see his face, and is stunned to discover he’s absolutely beautiful. Ethereal, honestly.
But he can’t be swayed. In his pocket, Kravitz runs a finger over the paper hidden there; this man is without a doubt the person helping host Lucas Miller’s experiments.
Doctor Taako Taaco, renowned transmutation wizard across the country, professor at the top magic school in the world, and mad scientist leading a circle of necromancers in experiments to raise the dead.
I wonder if Jean has been doctoring Lucien again in this scene. Or, maybe he was fixing her up and is kissing her boo boo all better.
The first picture is from the “Episode That Shall Not Be Named” from season 4. On the desk, you can see a bowl of bloody cotton balls Jean used to clean up his head injury. In the second picture that comes from the latest preview, there is a bowl of something that looks like cotton balls similar to the one from the first picture. His medical bag is open too.
I have been reduced to analyzing every bit of each new picture or video we get. I am not ashamed.
Idk if you were asked this before but have you considered maybe posting the first chapter of your novel on Tumblr or something as a preview of what to expect from the story? It would let the reader determine if they would want to complete it or not instead of diving into Patreon for a story which they have no idea what it's about/if the writing style's their cup of tea/etc. :)
OH!!!!! That’s a great idea, actually!!! I just finished editing the first chapter yesterday, too, so its as clean and pretty as its gonna get for now! maybe i’ll make a post for it later today! Thank you!!!!
I was so worried from the preview that something bad was going to happen this update but I didn't need to be at all! That was so sweet and pure and you draw these boys so well, I am Nick's little heart right now. Thank you for this beautiful comic.
aaaa nope, no drama in this update :’) thank you for reading!!
