we’ve seen victor make a mistake. he’s trying to ease yuuri’s nerves, but this isn’t something he’s used to. anxiety, self-doubt, not his forte. but for the love of him, he’s trying.
he wants to do something, anything and he comes up with the worst possible idea that his mind thought would work. but it doesn’t and it backfires
in the end, it’s communication, a whole lot of tears, and
then silence to think it over, that resolves the problem.
in this episode we see yuuri, with their promise on the line, make a mistake. one tiny mistake but he takes it hashly. this is where his anxiety and self doubt come to the forefront. it comes crawling back as he sees victor watch these promising skaters and now he thinks he’s holding victor back from the sport and people that love him. so he comes to a decision
they’re gonna talk, they may argue, there may be tears but they still care for and love each other deeply. nothing changes that.
The first time Auston Matthews met Mike Babcock, it was in the Detroit Red Wings’ coaches office at Joe Louis Arena.
Matthews was 17, playing for USA Hockey’s National Team Development Program about 45 minutes west in Ann Arbor. His coach was Don Granato, brother of Tony Granato, assistant to Babcock in Detroit.
The morning of a Red Wings game, Matthews and teammate Matthew Tkachuk came with Don Granato to watch practice and preview life in the NHL. Babcock had seen them play against the University of Michigan, and he told Matthews, “You’re a good player, but you can’t let your talent make up for your work ethic.”
“It’s something that I’ve always remembered,” Matthews said.
Matthews grew up in Scottsdale, Ariz., and didn’t realize how good he was until he tried out for the NTDP and stood out against the best players of his age group in the United States. It gave him top coaching, top teammates, top competition and experiences like meeting Babcock.
It also gave a glimpse of his personality: humble but confident, calm but competitive, unaffected and unafraid, the kind of person who could play pro hockey in Switzerland at 18, play in the World Cup of Hockey 2016 before his NHL debut and star in Toronto without acting much like a star.
“I really enjoyed my time there, thought I learned a lot, really progressed as a player, as a person,” Matthews said. “Some of my closest friends kind of come from those two years.”
Matthews lived in a suburban subdivision with his billet family: Brian and Heidi Daniels, their sons Cole and Camden, and teammate Luke Opilka. He kept his room clean, brought down his own laundry, made his own breakfast and lunch. One day, the family brought home some mulch. He grabbed a shovel and helped spread it out.
“I’ve never met a more competitive kid,” said Camden Daniels, now 15. “If he lost, you weren’t going to hear the end of it for a couple days.”
But you wouldn’t hear much about ice hockey.
“Whenever we went out to dinner or anything and some of my friends would be with him … Everyone knew how good he was, and he would just play it off like it was nothing basically,” Camden Daniels said. “You would have never thought he was doing what he was doing.

a lot of you guys may already noticed that yuri on ice has some scenes that are similar to studio ghibli and i think thats really AWESOME ! I want to make some comparisons in this post, feel free to add if you find more !!!
lets get started:
First in ep 7 when yuuri cried, look how big his tears are just like..
in spirited away when chihiro ate the onigiri you think thats coincidence ? then look at this…
that pic of yuuri really reminded me of this (its mainly spirited away cuz i just watched it ok)
This was the first thing i thought when i saw this scene with chihiro..idk it has something that reminded me of the way yuuri looked in the pic above maybe cuz of the eyelashes.
In ep 10 when victor showed us his side profile you can see that his philtrum is quite long..thats also a typical ghibli feature:
See what i mean, there are probably a lot more scenes where you can see it…
Next the other crying scene with victor. His tears are just like pearls that roll to the ground.
Resembles don’t you think ? There is maybe a movie/scene where you can see it even better though correct me if im wrong.
THE BEST COMPARISON AT LAST:
In ep 12 when yuuri grinned ((yes i also thought they would kiss)) LOOK AT HIS TEETH…
Looks exactly the same to me if you ask me uwu.
I don´t know if it was on purpose or not from the animators but now i love yoi even more. Thanks for reading my messy post pls feel free to correct and add ;))
so here’s… another VERY long headcanon post ;;;;; mainly because i wanted to and also i got a few people asking for my thoughts on these boys
very long and unorganized i’m sorry ahaha, i talk a lot in the first portion about how i think things would happen before their romantic relationship even starts so you can skip that if you just want some silly thoughts on these two and 500 things i talk about wanting to write but will probably never have time for. i tried to space this so it’s a little easier on the eyes since there’s uh, a lot. ill learn how to shut up one day i promise
As a May stan (and Philinda stan) I’ve been loving Season 4 so far
I cannot tell you how much I LOOOOOOOVE that the show is dedicating so much screentime and attention to exploring Melinda in different ways. Within this arc we’ve now seen:
1) LMD!May and May feeling that something is off before she knew and having to deal iwh the revelation that she’s not the ~real May (and what does that even mean for her if she has the same feelings and memories as the real May?)
2) Melinda and her feelings for Coulson (both as the LMD and pre-LMD -> “I saw you” and their plan to open that bottle that has even more meaning after 4x14)
3) Melinda’s personality and headspace in her induced coma (the spa day was stressing her out and she kept fighting and beating the second simulation and then finally, the heartwrenching revelation that to keep her calm Radcliffe let her ~beat Bahrain)
4) and speaking of Bahrain, we finally got to see pre-Bahrain Melinda in the flesh
What I’m hoping to see in the future:
1) I’m praying to god we’ll get to see Melinda inside the framework, living in a world where she didn’t kill that little girl in Bahrain. Are she and Andrew still together? Did they actually have children? Is she gonna get that feeling LMD!May had where something feels inexplicably off and wrong? What is her place within Shield? How does Coulson factor in? etc.
2) How she is going to deal with waking up and realizing that she DID kill the little girl in Bahrain all over again. My personal theory wrt this is that it might actually help her to have lived in a reality where that weight wasn’t on her shoulders but we’ll see.
And how will she react to finding out what happened between Coulson and her LMD counterpart. What will their relationship look like going forward? etc.
[prompt: 2009/10 D&P skyping & P tells D that he’s going to go take a shower & D can’t stop thinking about P hot, naked, & wet in the shower so he decides to finger himself & hump into a pillow in front of the camera. P took a quick shower & walks in on D moaning his name & say things like “faster please” “don’t stop” “harder phil”. P doesn’t announce himself bc he really wants to hear this through & he starts masturbating too. they finish at the same time. the author can decide what to do from there~~]
