Entry #22a: This is it! This is why I went back from Vancouver Island early. Stage 49 of the Bridge Studios are shooting Once Upon a Time in Steveston, Richmond and THIS time, there will be enough open space to watch. The shoot was announced from 8am - 5pm and the
night scenes from 5pm - 8pm. I came about 12am, because I had a feeling that they hadn’t done much. However, Lana Parilla and Rebecca Mader had already made their appereances. Not matter, I still got to see them in action a bit later.
And this is how a flm set looks like.
So many people just to shoot a single show. These weren’t all, there were about 50 - 100 fans waiting at the end of the road, all from different countries. The french ladies I had met before were there as well, just like the ladies from Spain. I had long conversations with people from Great Britain and America as well. All nice people. All in all, I was suprised how well behaved everyone was. When the crew changed a scene, security would come up to us, asking us to change the side of the road or walk to the other end and the entire group would move like a well trained flock of sheep. It was nice to see that everyone behaved well. I had thought there would be at least one or two crazy fan girls running up to an actor in the middle of a scene or something stupid along the lines, but no. Everyone wanted to see a successful day of shooting, as it should be.
And look who played along as well:
It was sunny and bright, but unfortunately, freezing cold as well. Every once in a while a fan or two would leave the group to warm up in one of the cafes while the others kept shivering.
Those who stayed got to see the stunt doubles in action.
The stunt double of the black fairy getting ready for action.
And now it’s the actors turn.
All the while, the actors and doubles who weren’t shooting hid and relaxed in the cannery cafe aka. Granny’s Diner.
This stunt double is definitely just as pretty as the real Prince Charming :P
Victor Nikiforov is poised to win gold in his fifth consecutive Grand Prix Final. He has the world at his feet, is unparalleled in the sport–right up until a snowstorm blows into Sochi, and he finds himself repeating the same day over and over and over. He stumbles over Yuuri Katsuki, and everything changes.
(Or, the time loop au. Loosely based on Groundhog Day.)
For the second time, the Sochi Grand Prix Finals arrive, and with it a reborn Yuuri Katsuki. “Viktor,” Yuuri thinks over the pounding of his heart, the crowd going silent as the music begins. “I’ll show the world what you meant to me.”
Yuuri often thinks of his life as Before and After Viktor Nikiforov, the marking point being the day Viktor swept into his life and turned his world upside-down. After many years together, an accident leads to Yuuri suddenly waking up in the Before—back in Detroit, before the GPF, before he ever knew Viktor as anything other than his childhood idol.
“If anything, Yuuri could console himself with the fact that his husband remembered him most of the time and that he still cared about Yuuri in his own way, when he did.”
Yuuri wakes up in Detroit after going to bed under heavy stress and emotional turmoil due to Victor’s declining mental health. Things are different. He’s dreaming obviously. And in dreams, people can do what they want.
So Yuuri decides to do what he wants. If only he could have accepted this new reality. Then the realization wouldn’t hurt so much later on. But ignorance keeps the pain of reality away.
An idea suddenly bursts into Yuuri’s mind as he looks down at his poodle-decorated phone. It was also not his current one—this one had been broken about a year ago after Viktor had dropped it into the toilet on accident.
He hesitates, his finger hovering over the “on” button. Taking a deep break, he clicks it.
He looks at the date, then promptly drops his phone. For on his home screen was not January 10th, 2019, but instead October 15, 2015.
Eight weeks before the 2015 Sochi Grand Prix Final.
also known as: that fic where Yuuri and Viktor go back in time separately, only to find each other again.
When Victor Nikiforov dies in a traffic accident, he is given the chance to go back in time and change the future. What he doesn’t realise, however, is exactly how far back he needs to go in order to change the fates of not only himself but also of those he loves.
When Yuuri and Viktor wake up over thirty years in the past, they don’t know what to do. Does the other remember?
Luckily that particular question is quickly answered and they can relax slightly, but what about afterwards? Viktor was brought back to right before his first Olympics, and Yuuri isn’t even old enough to compete in Seniors’!
Then there’s the fact that they’re still very much in love, but a physical relationship would be illegal (and would gross them both out considering Yuuri’s age), and they can’t count on anyone to just trust them not to do anything age inappropriate. So maybe being long-distance (with as many in-person meetings as possible) would be better until Yuuri becomes a legal adult physically, never mind his actual age.
But it’s hard to behave and act naturally when you’re forced to be apart from your husband of twenty years, especially during one of the most stressful parts of anyone’s life, so Yuuri and Viktor have to distract themselves somehow, right?
And if everyone around them ends up completely confused and blindsided at their sudden changes (though admittedly they seem to have changed for the better), then so be it!
“World Champion figure skater Viktor Nikiforov was found dead in his apartment in St. Petersburg, Russia, earlier this morning. Investigators say that Nikiforov’s death was most likely the result of a suicide attempt.”
Yuuri Katsuki keeps stumbling through different lines of his own story as time continues to loop after one particular event- Viktor Nikiforov, his longtime idol, commits suicide. As Yuuri’s choices continue to shape the paths he walks, he finds himself getting to know and love someone who’s having a hard time living.
I’d give Howard Phillips Lovecraft a wedgie, and would fistfight Pliny the Elder. Then… Then I’d go and lay down in a ridiculous pose, Jojo style, and wait for my disgusting form to be consumed by Mount Vesuvius’ famous eruption; trapping myself forever in a pose I’d regret after a minute.
On Battleborn Day (2), I was solo-queuing for Bots Match and got matched with a team of four people, all together, who all had loot boosters on. No one had picked a character yet, so I picked Kid Ultra. Then everyone went Kid Ultra. We even tried to do the same taunt, though not everyone had one and time ran out before we could coordinate more. But that was a great capture match. So much heroic nyooming! And catch phrases!
*another heroic submission from the superhero Battleborn time-travelling-cellist.
