the most beautiful sport in the world

sapphic animated lady date nights

Korra and Asami: Mountain date, hike up a mountain with a giant dog, tease each other about ‘getting tired’ and have a kiss tax if one of you stumbles, point out weird rocks that look like your boss, make everyone feel less sporty when you both race the rest of the way to the top and the winner swings the loser around in her arms

Ruby and Sapphire: Embarrassing Mom date, giggle at all each other’s jokes, hold hands, take the family out to the fair and compliment your child when he does anything, win prizes for each other, practice cheesy pickup lines and have loud declarations of love in public when your wife so much as smiles

Bubblegum and Marceline: Meandering Date, serenade your workaholic gf with more and more obnoxious versions of ‘All Star’ until she agrees to go check out this cemetery with you. Accidentally upset some haunted tax collector headstones, destroy them, and then make out on a hilltop until dawn

Rose and Kanaya: Stay-in Date, stay at home and make mac-n-cheese with wine, quote Shakespeare/space alien Shakespeare, reenact famous movie scenes- except gay and you’re drinking wine and sometimes you fall over and kiss, pretend to be grownups and then play mario cart in your pjs for the rest of the night

Tsuyu and Ochako: Gal Pals School Night Date, high school girls go to a haunted house, scream, hold hands, tell each other they are the most beautiful thing in the entire world, make funny faces at each other and cuddle, get told by classmates you’d make a cute couple if one of you was a guy :), be gay 

Sailor Uranus and Neptune: Sophisticated Lesbian date, power couple goes to local high-end restaurant and are the most glamorous things in the room, show up in a sports car and make every girl in the vicinity 25% less straight, ballroom dance, get free cocktails, maybe fight a dude at the end of the night and make out up against an alley wall after they deck them 

drowsy mornings

my master list ;)

summary: peter parker loves the days that you get to be the first thing he sees in the morning, especially when you’re wearing one of those sweaters of his and nothing else.

warnings: none just fluffy fluff

word count: 618 (a quick one cause i have homework that i’m procrastinating to do ahhhhh)

author’s note: it means the world to me if you spend the time to read this ahhhh :,)

Your eyes fluttered open, feeling the sensation of soft lips pressing against your forehead. A gentle smile adorned your face as you gazed up at the love of your life, sporting tousled chestnut hair and tired eyes. Peter had nothing, but admiration coursing through his veins at the sight of the beautiful girl, that he had the honor to call his own, smiling up at him. He had the pleasure of waking up to the thing in life he loved most, you.

“Morning Peter,” you said, rubbing the sleep out of your eyes groggily and sitting up.

“Good Morning, gorgeous,” he easily replied, running a lazy hand through his bed hair. “You sleep well?” He asked, genuine curiosity tugging at his brows as he pulled your hands to his lips, kissing your knuckles gingerly.

You nodded, interlacing your fingers with his. “I always do when I’m here.” You gestured to his small twin-sized bunkbed, piled with blankets from the night before, because Peter insisted you needed twelve to ‘make sure you weren’t cold’.

Peter smiled, cupping your face in his hands and kissing your nose playfully, then pulling away. You groaned, grabbing his jaw and pulling him back towards you, planting an eager kiss on his lips.

“A little needy, huh?” Peter laughed, teasing you as a light, rosy tint spread across the tip of your nose and cheeks.

You scoffed, feigning hurt. “So, you wouldn’t mind if I just left, right now?” You pushed off the covers on your lap, swinging your legs off the mattress, your feet hitting the floor defiantly. You stood up, one of Peter’s knit sweaters drowning your frame as you placed your hands on your hips.

Peter couldn’t help but think how absolutely breathtaking you looked at that exact moment, his jaw dropping slightly. The sun had risen, morning light shining through the edges of his blinds that didn’t quite cover the whole window. These rays of light hit your face in the most perfect way, your captivating bright eyes sparkling so effortlessly in the new lighting. Your face and hair were also just as perfect; natural, just the way Peter preferred you. Something about seeing you without any traces of makeup or the sight of you with hair done up with irons made his heart beat faster. It was something about the vulnerability of it all that made it so endearing to him. It was like you were sharing a part of you that no one else got to see, except him, and he cherished that. The fact that you wore his sweater to sleep and nothing else was just the cherry on top.

“Peter,” you teased, bringing him back from his short daze. “Earth to Parker.”

“Wha?” Peter sat up straight as his eyes widened, realizing he’d just completely zoned out.

“Obviously, you don’t really care if I leave..” you trailed off, looking up at his ceiling and tapping your foot on the ground.

“No, no, no, no,” Peter quickly stood up, shaking his head profusely. He wrapped his arms around your waist, pulling you against him back onto the bed. He tucked his head into the crook of your neck, placing kisses along your collarbone. “Please, don’t go yet, y/n.”

“Now, who’s the needy one?” You laughed, smirking at the boy who’d do literally anything for you. And honestly, you’d do anything for him too.

“Okay, fine we’re both needy,” Peter grumbled, pouting, placing the palms of his hands on your cheeks. “Just promise me, you’ll stay.”

“A drowsy morning with you sounds good to me, Parker,” you responded, pushing your fingers through his soft, curly hair and savoring the taste of his lips on your own.

If You Still Entertained Doubts That Argentine Men Are Among The Most Beautiful Men In The World…

Woof, Baby!

You’re still beautiful.

Originally posted by unicorn-with-scars

Imagine: Jupiter townies jumping you, while you were on your way to meet Jimmy.

Not my GIF.

Jimmy paced impatiently around the main tent. It was a gorgeous Sunday afternoon on the Freak Show grounds. He was expecting Y/N for a swim in the lake. He checked his watch for the hundredth time. It was 2 O'clock. Y/N was late. By an hour and a half to be exact.

“Stupid,” he thought. Maybe she’d finally gotten with someone of her own kind. Jimmy shook the thought away immediately. He knew damn well that she was crazy about him. Loved the way he’d lead her around the grounds with a proud hand around her waist. She’d press her chin on his shoulder as she’d glance up at him. 

“Jimmy?” Ethel’s voice interrupted. “Not now, Ma, I’m waiting for Y/N.”

“Well, I’m afraid that’s what this is about.” She motioned for him to follow. Not really saying much besides, Dell found her on the side of the road. He wasn’t sure what to expect. Not that he had much time to speak. His heart was ready to beat straight out of his chest. He certainly wasn’t expecting to see what he did.

Desiree had her arms wrapped around Y/N in a tight embarrassed. Swaying back and fourth, shushing her softly. “We’re gonna fix you up, right as rain. You’ll see.”

She was covered in dirt smudges and scrapes. Her hair, once long and beautiful. Her silky strands used to reach in between her shoulder blades. It was mangled and butchered at uneven lengths. Her split lip quivered as her gaze met Jimmy’s. It was clean that along with the new do, she’d been roughed up.. It were eyes that killed him the most. Puffy with traces of fear written all over them.

“What happened,” he said putting a hand gently on her face.

She sniffled and hid her face in her hands. “Some townies caught me on the way here. And they-they cut my hair,” she whimpered.

Jimmy didn’t bother asking why. It was an unwritten rule of Jupiter. If you associate with freaks. You’d pay the price. They did it because she was in love with a freak like him.

Guilt racked his entire being as he held her face in his hands. He had to fight the rage that threatened to split him in two. “I’m gonna find the guys that did this okay? And when I do-”

“Dells already in town,” Ethel said grimly. An understanding washed over the quiet caravan. The strong man always got his man.

Jimmy sank down into the couch and pulled Y/N close to his chest.

“See? He’s gonna get em. And I promise, no one’s gonna touch you again,” he mumbled as he kissed her temple.

She nodded and kissed his shoulder lightly before laying her head down.

“They messed up one thing though,” he smiled lightly.

“What?” She stiffened and craned her neck up.

“You’re still beautiful,” he grinned. “If their goal was to take that away from you, I’d say they didn’t get the job done.” 

“Shut up,” she muttered. She turned her head away to hide her rosy cheeks. Coaxing blushes onto her cheeks was one of Jimmy’s favorite things. There was no real sport in it. She was naturally bashful anyways.

“I mean it,” he playfully growled. “You’ll always be the most beautiful girl in the world.”

anonymous asked:

are there any lengthy fics with smut? I think I read most of them and I need a new story :) thanks!

tenacious d in the dick of destiny by jhopeg - In the midst of struggling with debts and empty plastic packets of instant ramyeon, Taehyung and Jeongguk joined forces to put the phrase “sex sells” to good use.

Carnal Contract by GiiGii - The underworld is no place for outsiders. Jungkook understands this completely but Taehyung has already stepped in too far. Yoongi knows he’ll never escape the underworld and Jimin just wishes he could have nothing to do with it. Namjoon’s too curious and Jin can’t keep him away forever. Hoseok might be the only one happy where he is. Jungkook is fighting to inherit the underworld and Taehyung might turn out to be the enemy’s best weapon against him.

Mileage May Vary by rix  - Jeongguk is a stripper with a penchant for trouble. Taehyung is curious.

of smokey bars and burning hearts by madeliefie - The boy -man- is beautiful. The way the light shines on his face tugs at Jeongguk’s heartstrings and for the first time in his life, he’s caught off guard. Jeongguk knows he isn’t going to heaven and he figures that this boy is the closest thing to an angel he’ll get. Taehyung wants the world to know who he is and Jeongguk is dangerous enough to make that happen.

Cage Match by SlimeQueen - Taehyung knows he likes the rush of adrenaline that comes from fighting. He likes his knuckles split and stinging, heart pounding in his ribcage, the rush of blood in his ears. Jungkook is new to it all but all he knows is that he likes Taehyung.

Long Road To Ruin by jvante - To: Chiminy Cricket [24:09]
Ok so i’m texting you like you told me to instead of drunk texting Taehyung and telling him how badly i want his cock right now From: Unknown [24:19]
this is taehyung. hi.

Then there’s the landing by Sharleena - “The thing about Figure Skating is that it’s the most brutal sport disguised as something incredibly beautiful to look at, something elegant and frail. Just like Kim Taehyung.

own it (it’s yours) by dehluxes - We all live in a world wherein temptations and desires reign over everything else.

loving easy by aeterisks - After two years of being a cheerleader, Taehyung has come to know all the people who usually attend the basketball games. So obviously, he wouldn’t fail to notice him. (Or, Taehyung is a cheerleader, Jeongguk is a not-so-really punk and Taehyung never thought he could fall in love so effortlessly.)

Reborn in Water by TrappingLightningBugs - Freshly graduated from high school, Jungkook loses his class ring in the nearby lake, and despite the fact that his parents would be super pissed, it’s not that big of a deal. That is, until a stranger decides to appear in his bath one night, wearing his ring.

It Can’t Rain Forever

(In response to this post


That’s all Stanley wanted.

He just wanted to feel clean.

But every time he looked in the mirror and saw the scars, he was transported back to that dark and dirty sewer. The complete and utter loneliness would take hold of him and suddenly, his bathroom lights were too bright. They were too close. They were growing closer. They were towering over him. They were paralyzing him-

He was dirty.

So, so dirty.

And he couldn’t get clean.

No matter how hard he scrubbed his face, the marks wouldn’t leave.

His hands began to shake, frantically tugging at his face. The wash cloth in his hand came back bloodied this time; he must have picked one of the scabs off. So be it. He couldn’t feel his face anymore anyways. And the lights just kept getting brighter.

He felt like an actor, and this was his scene. The spotlight was on him, just like it always is. Like it always will be.

So he better play his part.

He must play his part.

And it all makes sense to me

You and Dean had held hands plenty of times, but the first time you paid attention to the way his hand felt in your was when the two of you were cuddled up in the couch. His hand engulfed yours as his thumb rubbed curled on the back of your hand.  

You studied his facial features as they became delicate in his sleeping state. You never noticed how many freckles he actually had, and they added to the things you love about him.

Summer 2017 Anime Anticipation

My friends, the end of spring is upon us  yet again, summer is approaching bringing with it my first quarter-century birthday and a wave of new anime of which there are no sequels of interest for me, so the list of shows I may end up watching is unusually diverse and pretty wild. HeroAca, Virgin Soul and Re:Creators continue into the summer too, the first two being brilliant, the latter… eh. I’ll talk about it in my final review of the season

Top interest

Shokoku no Altair: Definitely my most anticipated show of the season. The manga’s been making waves all over the place and getting praised for its story and beautiful artwork and since MAPPA now has all the money in the world after Yuri on Ice became the fifth (potentially even third, time will tell) best-selling anime since 2000, I hope they’ll do something really good with it.

Ballroom e Youkoso: Production I.G. picking up another sports anime? And one based around an artistic-interpretative competitive sport? Sign me the fuck up a hundred times over! I gotta say though, that my excitement for this show has soured due to 1) the fucking giraffe necks in the concept art and 2) All the fuckboys rallying up around it saying “don’t worry, this one isn’t gay shit like Yaoi on Ice™”. But I still have high hopes for this

Vatican Kiseki Chousakan: The premise sounds so kooky and cool and fun and I’m weak okay? It’s definitely different and sounds interesting so I hope it delivers

Katsugeki Touken Ranbu: After the massive let down that was Hanamaru, my interest in this franchise has dwindled quite a bit. Since they’re doing this as a more plot-heavy historically-focused rendition of the characters, I’m hoping it’ll be more my kind of thing and that ufotable makes it look amazing.

DIVE!!: The other sports anime of the season and it’s about diving of all things! Diving is one of my favorite sports to watch, but the studio doing this is kinda new so I’m worried they won’t be able to produce the animation this kind of sport would require. Fingers crossed. Just hoping it won’t be another Battery.

High expectations

Kakegurui: Looks cool? Not a concept I’ve seen before so I think it could be very fun and unique. I literally don’t know, I’m casting a sort of wide net because there are no sequels of interest for me this season but there seems to be an abundance of “I’ve never seen an anime about this!” shows which is kind of a rare thing in the medium.

Isekai Shokudo: I’d usually pass on anything that uses ‘isekai’ on its title, but my interest for the growing trend of food-centric anime beats my zealousness against otaku isekai LN. Hopefully it’ll turn out sweet and fun

Keppeki Danshi Aoyama-kun: The concept sounds weird enough to work in the same way that Tanaka-kun, Sakamoto, Saiki Kusuo and Nozaki-kun did. I’m only crossing my fingers for a weird af comedy, I ain’t asking for much.

Who the fuck knows, could go either way

The Reflection: This has been in the works for a while and it’s actually a collab with Stan Lee so basically I have no idea of what to expect but it has 50/50 chances of being amazeballs/a train-wreck and I’m quite curious.

Centaur no Nayami: In principle I like the idea of a slice-of-life about centaurs, definitely looks like something more in my taste than raunchier monster girl shows, but since this is a Chinese coproduction and the main girl has huge tiddies I’m cautious about it.

Saiyuki Reload: I haven’t watched the original Saiyuki –I’ve meant to, but my pile of shame is so big- so I don’t even know if I’d be able to watch it, but if it turns out to be something newbies on the franchise can enjoy, I’m definitely interested in checking it out

The Fate Line aka I have no expectations whatsoever but still intend to check them out (maybe)

Fate/Apocrypha: Back when this blog was young I managed to anger the Fate otaku because UBW was shit, but as I said repeatedly back then, Fate as a concept is something I find very engaging. Do I expect this one to be good? Nope. Why am I watching it then? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I mean if I suffered rape-facilitator Archer in UBW I can’t imagine Apocrypha can have something that’ll make me quit… unless it’s offensively boring which can always happen

Konbini Kareshi: Everything below the Fate line I have no real expectations for, but if I have time to check this out it might turn out to be dumb and fun ala Starmyu or Dance with Devils. Who knows

Hitorijime my Hero: I mean, it can’t be worse than Super Lovers…. Right?

Netsuzou Trap: If there’s something I have even less faith in than questionable power dynamics BL it’s fetiche yuri. Still might try to watch ep 1, depending on the kind of reactions it gets

And that’s the season folks. Really lots of variety and with no sequels, pretty much everything on the list is a wildcard. Still I hope the top 5 shows won’t be a disappointment. Oh well, even if they are I’ll stillhave HeroAca and Virgin Soul.

What shows are you looking forward to for next season?

So proud of Yuzuru Hanyu. Congratulations to Shoma Uno and Boyang Jin. It’s sad that Javier Fernandez didn’t get to defend his gold medal here but at least we got Hanyu back on track. Nathan Chen you can do it. Don’t pressure yourself too much about how many quads you’re gonna do. Figure skating is a brutal sport and you’re still too young to injure yourself to the point you might need to quit the sports. Patrick Chan you made your fans so proud and your short program is the most beautiful to me.

Proud of our Asian men.
A love letter to women’s soccer

Dear women’s soccer,

you are the best thing that happened to me. You taught me countless lessons that changed my life. The world is a cruel place. It is often unfair to those who work hard, but go unnoticed. But you give those people hope, you gave me hope when I was an insecure little kid and still give me hope today as a young adult. You lifted me up when I was bullied in school for being too small, too weak, too unathletic at 13 years old. I always dreaded PE class because every time I stepped into the gym, I was going to be ridiculed and laughed at once again. And every time I tried, it wasn’t enough. I was never enough in the eyes of my teacher and in the eyes of my peers. Phrases like “you never tried” were thrown at me, but how am I supposed to try when no one even gave me a chance? Women’s soccer has shown me that my body does not limit my ability to succeed, to thrive, to shine. That the voice inside of me speaks louder than any bully. Aya Miyama, a 5’1 Japanese soccer player, played a key role in bringing home the world cup trophy in 2011. Hope Solo, the former US goalkeeper and an international superstar, never let her dark past define her performances on the field and her mindset helped her team to win two Olympic golds and a world cup.

Sports are such a beautiful thing. It’s the will to optimize yourself, be bolder, be faster, be stronger. And then the excitement, the happiness when you finally reach your goal…it’s priceless.

Soccer unfortunately happens to be probably the most male-dominated game that exists. Female players struggle to make a living and usually have second careers to support themselves, beside soccer. Rachel Buehler decided to continue med school after retiring from soccer and Whitney Engen has just recently started law school. These two and many others turned the adversities society throws at them into being total badasses. And it requires so much for players to take a break from soccer, have children and then get back to playing professionally. Putting up with crappy wages, personal sacrifices and endless discrimination, but still stepping out on the field and keep going, is the definition of strength. Meanwhile, male soccer players do not even think of second careers because they get a shit ton of money for getting their privileged asses promoted.

Dear women’s soccer, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. Because of you I know what it means to embrace myself and play like a girl. Because of you I know that gender does not equal limit. Please never doubt your worth just because the world isn’t as grateful for you as it should be.

Love, Anne

So I know we’re all probably excited and happy for Sam Kerr to be featured on Sportscenter and on their Instagram page, like how often does that happen with female athletes? Allow me to answer my own question. In the last month alone, Sportscenter has posted 421 posts on Instagram. Of those 421 posts, SIX (6) of them featured women, though one of the women featured was Steph Curry’s wife Ayesha who is not an athlete, but I’m fuckin’ counting it. That means that in the last month, 1.4% of their posts have featured women. 1.4%. That’s absolutely outrageous. So, after realizing how rare it is for female athletes to be featured on Sportscenter’s Instagram, I decided to scan through the comments and see how everyone was reacting to the video. And now I’m pissed. I’m going to put the rest under a read more so this won’t clog your dash.

Happy 125 Birthday Vogue!

This days Vogue is celebrating 125th Birthday. 1892. during the Belle Epoque, the first issue of legendary Vogue magazine was published by Arthur Turnure. Under his direction a new publication was created  that celebrated the “ceremonial side of life”; one that “attracts the sage as well as debutante, men of affairs as well as the beautiful ladies.The magazine targeted the new New York aristocracy, establishing social norms in a country that did not value class and ceremony as much as England or France. The magazine at this time was primarily concerned with fashion, with coverage of sports and social affairs, carefuly made for its male readership. Who would say that from only couple hundred of first issues it will become most prestigious fashion magazine in the world today, followed and adored by millions of women and men together.

For this occasion Vogue made beautiful cover with two icons: Jeniffer Lawrence and Statue of Liberty….What a great choice!

Congratulations ! Happy 125 th. Birthday Vogue!  

Strong Is Beautiful 👸

So according to some female “writers” Serena’s SI photo shoot should be considered soft porn. So what do they call the issue where the models “swimsuits” were painted on? They were basically naked. Women wear less than she did on beaches all the time. Do they consider those women porn stars? Of course not. That would be ridiculous. 

I’m so sick of this double standard fake feminism crap. White women pose nude and women call it empowering but when WOC especially Black women show off their bodies they’re accused of being vulgar and pornographic. That is so stupid!

Serena Williams has a strong, beautiful, curvy feminine body that she has worked hard to maintain over the years in a sport that is physically draining. Most women her age have retired from tennis at least 5 or more years ago but Serena is still going strong. She is number one in the world and has won 23 Grand Slams. She should be praised for her endurance, strength, intelligence and beauty. 

Why do some people have issues with females with athletic bodies especially WOC? Strength and beauty is sexy.

Women come in all shapes, colors and sizes. All women are beautiful.

Hi! Can I have a scenario where Ushijima's S/O has depression and lots of insecurity and he helps her forget all about that with fluffy smut? Lots of body worship(him giving) and NSFW pls! Thanks so much!

(I hate myself because this isn’t as NSFW as it could’ve been I’m sorry)

“Wakatoshi, I can’t do this…”
“Do what?”
Ushijima was never good with reading other people’s emotions. Hell, he wasn’t even good at reading his own. Although, when he looked into her bloodshot, broken eyes, he could see more feeling than he ever thought he could comprehend. Sadness, anger, frustration. Every conflict and insecurity she had was the pitiful gloss over her eyes. It hurt him to look at her like this, the usually bright, bouncy girl he had fallen in love with now an apathetic stone. He was confused, his focus now drawing in on her shaking hands. This whole situation was making him think. How long has she felt like this for? Did it just start, or was her charisma a facade? He didn’t know what to do once she started crying, and rambling away on a self deprecating tangent. As she continued to vent his heart continued to break. He loved her, he knew that much for sure, and he couldn’t help but feel like this whole scenario was at his fault. Was he not giving her enough attention? Was he saying the wrong things? Was he really the terrible boyfriend he feared himself to be?
She scowled up at him, bloodshot eyes more malevolent than before.
“I’m going to bed.” She stuttered in a broken voice. “Thanks for being here.”
He couldn’t help but wince at the sudden malice in her tone. She stood up from the couch, wiped a few more pitiful tears from her eyes, and slumped towards their bedroom down the hall. Half of him wanted to go after her, but figured that was the last thing she wanted right now. So he stay put on the couch, his hands balling up into fists.
“Damn it…” He muttered to himself, staring at the bedroom down the hall longingly, hoping that she would be ok.

Three hours passed and Ushijima knew that there was no way she was asleep. It was 10:24 on a Saturday night, and he knew that girl well enough to know her sleep schedule was too fucked up for her to be able to sleep this early. She was doing an amazing job at staying silent though, so Ushijima thought that maybe she was, in fact, asleep. He wanted to go check up on her, but didn’t out of the fear that she would yell at him for disturbing her. He stood outside the bedroom, and stayed there for thirty minutes, before building himself up and opening the rickety wooden door. He could see the figure of her curled up under the duvet, and judging by the fact that he couldn’t see the soft glow of her cell phone, she must’ve fallen asleep. He sighed, out of relief or lethargy, he didn’t know. He had been stressing for the past three hours, worrying that she would hurt herself, or hurt something. He snuck up next to her, the sudden shift of weight on the bed causing her to stir. The pale light emitted from the lamp in the hallway allowed him to see her features perfectly. Her rosy red cheeks laced with reminiscences of sadness, her under eyes, purple and depressing. He pulled the cover down slightly, examining the rest of her. He checked her arms, legs and hips, searching for something he didn’t want to find. She came out clean and he sighed again, leaning over to press a soft kiss on her cheek. He couldn’t help but admire her for a moment. His definition of beauty was her, and her definition of repulsive was her. God knows their opinions were different, but this was one opinion he was hoping she had agreed with.
He kissed her again, lingering more this time, hoping that she would wake up. He needed to hear her, to see her, to know that she was alright. Just because she physically didn’t hurt herself, her mind was still a mess. He kissed her lips next, then her neck a couple times, and her lips again, until her bloodshot eyes full of desolation fluttered open.
“Wakatoshi?” She whimpered, her voice shallow and broken from the crimes her mind did. A sudden weight was lifted off of his chest, his heart beating rapidly at the release of the pressure.
“I’m here…” He kissed her again. “I’ll always be here. I love you.”
She kept quiet, her eyes glued to the ceiling. She was upset, because if she was staring at the ceiling without complaining about its ugly popcorn design, she was far beyond happiness, or anger, or any emotion at all.
She was empty.
He slipped an arm under her head and kissed her deeply, her lips chapped against his. His ministrations continued downwards, on her collarbones and chest, her stomach and hipbones. He could feel her heart being to beat rapidly under the palm of his hand, her chest rising and falling and quick as her heartbeat.
“Is this ok?” He pondered.
“Wakatoshi I’m scared.”
“How so?”
“I don’t know…” She whined, jumping slightly when he began to rub her chest. “I’m just embarrassed, I guess. I don’t want you to see my body.”
“But I’ve seen your body before. I think it’s beautiful.”
“But it’s not.”
Ushijima sighed, kissing her hip bone once more.
“__, we don’t agree on things a lot, we are very different people. We don’t have to agree on sports teams or paint swatches or anything like that but please… Let’s both agree that you’re the most beautiful thing in my world.”
He heard her whimper, grabbing him by the shoulders and tugging at the fabric of his t-shirt to signal him to move upwards. He crawled up, stiffening when she jerked forwards and pulled him into a hug. She buried her face in the crook of his neck, tears welling up once more, and prickling his skin. He let her cling to him, tug at his shirt in agony.
“It’s hard, Wakatoshi, you don’t understand. You’re perfect, you always have been, you always will be. You… you don’t understand how self deprecation feels, do you? Because you are perfect, you have no reason to ever hate yourself. You’re attractive, and smart, and talented…”
“Don’t assume that I don’t know how you feel.” He muttered. “I might have a good life but it wasn’t always like this. I may not have hated my body, but I know how insecurity feels, and I’m sorry.”
She frowned, tilting her head upwards to kiss him softly on the cheek.
“I’m sorry. It’s just been a really hard week… I’m sorry I put you in this situation… I’m-”
“You don’t have to be sorry.” He cut her off, his hands sliding back up her shirt. “You’re upset, I forgive you.”
“You’re too good for me.”
“I could say the same.”
He ducked back down underneath the covers, kissing her stomach and hips and inner thighs. He kissed her through the fabric of her underwear, humming in content as she squirmed.
“I love you.” He looked up from underneath the soft fabric of the duvet to meet her averted gaze, her lips turned upwards into an endearing smile.
“I love you too.”

thoughts on my first season as a figure skating fan + favorite skates

With the 2016-17 figure skating competitive season firmly behind us, I’ve had the time to look back and reflect on my first season as a figure skating fan.

Like many newly turned figure skating fans this season, I got into figure skating fandom thanks to Yuri on Ice. A recommended Youtube video–and a world-record breaking free skate in Barcelona later–I had crossed fandoms entirely and unwittingly signed up for what was to be the most nerve-wracking, heart palpitating Experience™ ever. I even started writing fic to cope with the trauma. (How do you veteran figure skating fans last? I deduce that figure skating fans must either have nerves of steel or a streak of masochism to cope with the emotional highs and lows of the season.)

My figure skating fan journey officially kicked off in Marseille at the Grand Prix Final. It’s a little mind blowing to look back and see how the first figure skating competition I followed became an exercise in absurdity (#frencheventplanning). Next stop was my first livestreaming experience at 4am in the morning (#greatlifechoices) for Four Continents in Gangneung, a reputedly low-key competition transmorgified into a terrifying, heart-pounding prelude to the World Championships in Helsinki where history was made, hearts were broken, and some of the most inspiring skates were recorded.

Keep reading

“For the love of God, baby… Are you done yet?” Jiwon huffs, body sprawls out across the beige suede couch of your living room, eyes still glue to the bright screen of his phone.

“Five more minutes…” You sigh softly, hoping to buy just a little more time from the impatient man. The night had started out so splendidly well with music and wine, Jiwon waltzing in the front door impeccable in a simple black suit adorning raven hue heavenly soft velvet lapels. He twirled then tripped, as expected of your clumsy Jiwon, then laugh when you jumped into his arms near spilling the flutes of liquor still in his hands. Once laughters had simmered and mood settled, a fervid kiss ensued like the first spark of summer vibrant firework. He whispered words of love then words of lust softly in your ear, giving you a taste of what to come for the rest of the night. It wasn’t a birthday nor anniversary, neither was it a holiday but that’s just how your relationship works. Getting dressed up and having a fancy dinner aren’t just saved for special dates because honestly, why do you need for it to be some special day to celebrate love. Love should be celebrated any time as Jiwon had so casually whispered the first time he swept you off your feet for a mini vacation that soon started this tradition of unscheduled festivity. And so you were whisked away by your lovely man holding a large shopping bag filled with your outfit for the night. 

That brings the story back to why you were now standing in front of the mirror in the beautiful white satin dress Jiwon had picked out with a frown on your lips. Jiwon had a nasty habit of letting his hands wander, not matter the time or place. He especially loves the summer months when you bare more for the world to see even if it’s out of necessity to combat the sweltering heat. There is almost next to nothing in comparison to the way your skin feels under his fingertips. It’d just start out as a casual protective draping of the arm over your shoulders but soon his fingers begin their dance down your arm. He’d then so cheekily slipping his hand under the strap of your top before letting it graze the curve of your bare back, occasionally even sneaking a feel under your shirt if he feels particularly bold that day. And so surprise, surprise - the back of the back of the dress dips low, it would’ve make everyone blush had it not for the strategic excess of the velvety soft fabric pooling at the bottom hiding just enough. The front low enough to entice but as always, keeping it classy by leaving it up to imagination. Like a waterfall, the satin falls off your body accentuating curves but forgiving enough for any food babies you might gain later in the night. The floor length gown makes you feel like a million dollar princess yet you couldn’t shake the anxiety bitting at your soul. You love your body, and so does Jiwon. You had learned very earlier on to accept everything about yourself because your dear boyfriend would have no part of you comparing yourself to anyone. “You’re the most perfect girl in this world, don’t you ever forget that”, his words echoing in your mind yet you still couldn’t get yourself to slip into yet another pair of ridiculous high heels he had bought. 

That was it, you love yourself, you do but there’s one thing in this world that not even Jiwon could make you accept - you fucking hate how tall you are. Most your friends, even strangers go on and on about how blessed you were with the height department, how convenient it must be but you just don’t see it. Before you had become Kim Jiwon’s other half, when you were just the best friend with the monumental crush that was obvious to everyone except one person, you had watched as he filmed videos, then shows, then skits with girls after girls after girls. All of them gorgeous and of course, all of them dainty and petite like a daffodil dancing softly in the light breeze of spring while you’re like a giant sunflower that just towers over everything. You tried on flat, even the tiniest heels you had and nothing could save the ridiculous amount of left over fabric dragging on the floor. Your eyes meet the pair of nude heels sitting pretty on the plush softness of your vanity chair warily, almost fearful to put them on. Against your better judgement, you slip them on anyways, how could you not when he had put so much effort in picking out the perfect shoes with your perfect dress. With a sadden sigh, you stare at your giant reflection, twirling then gazing from back to front. Although you couldn’t deny that the shoes were made for this dress, your coward heart couldn’t bear the thought of everyone staring, the whispers as you pass by even if the rational side of yourself know they could just be talking about any mundane thing in the world… You couldn’t let yourself face the world, you just weren’t brave enough so off the shoes go and so is the dress.

Jiwon couldn’t understand what in the world could his girl still be doing after nearly two hours of getting ready. It’s not like he doesn’t know make up, he himself has to go through the whole process every single shoot. Not just so but every time he gets the chance to laze around the house, he’d be right there by your side, watching as you carefully pat in layers that he honestly feels like you don’t need. Yet he never say a thing because he loves the effort you put in, even if he thinks you’re already the most beautiful person in the world without the extra helps. Patient running low, Jiwon pulls himself off the couch he nearly fell asleep on 3 different times, wincing that the crisp white shirt was now sporting lines like a well seasoned old timer. 

You were so enthrall in your world of self pity that the creak of the door completely misses your ears. Jiwon crept in, lightest steps he could with a smirk on his face, it’s time for payback for the whole hidden wasabi fiasco a few weeks ago. There’s no way he could bring himself to feed you something so caustic even if you did just that, ruining a perfectly good piece of sushi but never mind that he spent the rest of the night groaning and dying, he will be the bigger man so a scare will have to do. Snickering a bit, he pokes his head in preparing to jump onto you but the second his eyes met with your figure, his smile dropped. 

There you stand so beautiful and sweet yet your features, solemn and tormented. Your hand smoothing over your hips then with a quick grasp, your hand pulls the dress up just enough to review the pair of heels he had spent hours on picking. A gentle smile graces Jiwon’s lips at the sight of how perfect you made the dress look but once again, his smile falls when you frustratingly kicks off your heels, eyes glisten no doubt on the brink of tear. Your fingers carding through your hair before they move onto unzipping the dress, he couldn’t take it anymore.

“Baby girl, what do you think you’re doing?”

Your soul nearly jumps out of your body when those familiar hands clasp tight around yours, guiding the small zipper back up. 

“Ji-Jiwon. I- nothing…”

You lie even though you knew there was no point, he had already seen through your curtain of deception and truthfully, if anyone could read you like the back of his hand, it’d be Jiwon. 

“Baby… why are you taking off the dress? Do you not like it?” His arms found purchase around your waist, tightening you in a soul crushing hug as he rest his chin gently on your shoulder. 

“I love the dress…” You pause for a second. How could you lie to him yet at the same time, how could you trouble him with something so stupid. 

“But?” curiosity at the tip of his tongue, anxious to know why you can’t see yourself the way he sees you. 

“I just wanted to wear the black pair of heels and it didn’t go together, you know. Just, girl stuff.” a chuckle left your lips but his eyes train on your eyes, plague with sadness… Something he never, ever wants to see.  

“Come on, love. We’ve been together long enough… Tell me…” His face snuggles into the crook of your neck, nosing at that soft scent that brings him so much comfort because it means home, it means you. Soft kisses sprinkle the way down your shoulder before finding their way up to your cheeks. You couldn’t hold it in anymore, eyes squeezing shut at the thought of keeping this stupid insecurity from him.

“Is there anything you’d want to change about me?” Your voice frail and whispery, barely audible, at the edge of your seat for a reply.

“Uhm…” He pauses and your eyes shut, waves of despair hitting you like a freight train, you knew it… “You know when you sleep, sometimes you hit me in the face. I know you don’t mean it but it still hurt, babe. But it’s okay, I love you regardless.” A sweet kiss chases your confusion, what in the world is he going on about.

“I mean, you know, physical aspect… not that.” You honestly lost all your words at this point, Jiwon had always been strange to say the least but that was such a random answer that you were completely thrown off.

“No, I don’t know. Our sex life is beyond great… I mean, look at you, look at me. How could we not have great sex… I could show you right now if you’re still doubting.” That grease ball, honestly, you have no word at how often he could get it on. With a few sly winks, his hands snake their way up to your chest, no shame on his face as he gives them a few squeeze all the while littering kisses all over your shoulder. “Hmm, no bra huh… Looks like i picked the right dress” He near moans and any other day, you’d already be on your knees but not right now, not today.

“Not that. Stop it. I’m serious, babe~” He earned quite a few slaps on the hand from you before one more lingering kiss meets your neck, halting his fun to a stop.

“alright. Well you’re obviously have something very specific in mind so why don’t you just tell me… that way we can solve it together.” Spinning you to face him, his lips find their way back to yours, hand gently cupping your cheeks.

“I- Don’t you think I’m too tall?” You exhale against his lips, only to be push off from a very shock Jiwon.

“Why would your height matter. Baby, what?!”

“I know it’s silly but don’t you think I’m too tall for you? I just think we don’t match… when I watch you film with other girls, they looks so cute and delicate under your arms… Me? I’m like an ugly giant. I’m already near your height, plus the 10 million pairs of heels you keep buying me aren’t exactly helping the case. I don’t kno-”  You words like vomit, ugly and spewing without care of where it hit but it wasn’t long before Jiwon shut you off, upset lacing in his every word. Jiwon loves to listen to you vent, no matter the topic but this is one thing he couldn’t bear listening to.

“No. Shut it, Y/n. I will not allow for my girl to be bad mouthed even if she’s the one doing it, especially if she’s the one doing it. God, Y/n… how long have you been keeping this in? It’s not silly if you’re worrying sick about it. You can tell me anything, love.  Baby, I told you, I will love you no matter what. You’re the fucking most beautiful girl in my eyes, why, why won’t you see that? Even if your boobies sag and your butt wrinkly in the future, I will still love you and think you’re the best person in this world.” Forever mischievous, his words always find a way to lift a smile onto your lips. “Beside, I didn’t get with you because you’re beautiful. I fell for you because of your kind soul and eccentric self that match me so well. Even if you weren’t pretty, I’d still fall for you.” His eyes frantic, searching for any sign of doubt still left over in yours but all he sees was tears. “No, don’t cry. Listen to me, not the world. Who care what the lame ass media say, you’re my girl and I won’t have you any other way… Slapping me in the face in your sleep or not, you’re still my girl, don’t you dare change yourself.” He finishes his speech with a big grin, thumbs working overtime to wipe away whatever tears ruining your make up. 

“You make me the happiest woman everyday, you know that? I love you so much. I-Thank you.” Diving into his arms, you snuggle close to his chest feeling your worries smoothing away with each pass of his hand over your back. 

“So, what do you say… Put them heels on, then we can have another best night of our lives?” With a fleeting kiss to your cheek, he proposes an offer you could never turn down. With a soft nod, the bright bunny smile was back on his lips as he bends over, slipping those shoes that you’re no longer dreading on as if you’re Cinderella before pulling you in for one last hug. Insecurity isn’t something you’re going to fix overnight nor is Jiwon a fairy godmother that can fixes it with a flash of his handsome smile and a wave of a wand. It’ll be awhile before you can forgo all your anxiety and proudly stand next to him, heels and all, but at least for tonight, you’ll be okay. At least for tonight, you’re taking one step forward in the long journey of learning how to embrace yourself and the best part of all, Jiwon will be there every step of the way.
