God damn it this is so touching I'm crying so much
This is the reason why Victor (and I) feel like it is a marriage proposal:
Yuuri: (To Victor) Please be my coach until I retire! (Subs)
Yuuri: Intai made, boku no koto, onegaishimasu!
Do you know what he uses in here
He uses boku no koto
Not boku no coach (looks weird but you get what I mean)
Boku no koto: It’s like please be mine
So it feels more like Yuuri’s saying: Until I retire, please be mine!
THIS SO GODDAMN TOUCHING DO YOU GET ME
Victor kisses his hand like a response towards his proposal.
Victor: (so gentle and lovingly) I wish you’d never retire.
Victor: (Yes, I’ll be yours forever)
DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH I CRIED AM AND STILL CRYING OVER THIS SCENE NOW
EDIT: A little error up there. When Yuuri says “boku no koto” onegaishimasu, it’s like saying he’s entrusting himself to Victor’s care (which makes more sense now that I think about it, because I realized boku no koto is like about me. Credits to @miyukieijun for pointing this out!)
in which adrien & marinette attend a wedding reception and marinette notices how adrien looks at the bride and groom wishfully.
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
//sorry for the lack of art lately! i’ve been swamped with work but i’ve been thinking about my whole wedding au and the events leading up to it….including proposal *stuffs my face in a pillow and screams while thinking about their proposal scene*
“I’ve come here with a view to asking you… to marriage me. I know I seems an insane person because I hardly knows you but sometimes things are so transparency, they don’t need evidential proof. And I will inhabit here, or you can inhabit with me in England.
Of course I don’t expecting you to be as foolish as me, and of course I prediction you say no… but It’s Christmas and I just wanted to… check.”
What I really love about it is that it could actually be a proposal. That’s how you traditionally propose in Japan - no falling on one knee and asking the other to marry you, just a casual thing like saying “I want to always come back home to you”. And that’s it.
In fact, I used to read a lot of stuff about Japan’s culture and language written by a woman from my country who is now studying at Waseda University. She also used to be engaged to a Japanese man. She’s talked to her followers about the engagement and said that it’d been no big deal; her boyfriend came home and while eating the soup his girlfriend had made for him, he said “I would like to come back home and eat dinner made by you every day for the rest of my life”. And she knew exactly what he meant. That was his proposal.
So yeah, the scene could in fact be a proposal, though it probably wouldn’t really go like this in their case. I’m not saying it was or wasn’t a proposal, just wanted to point out the whole engagement thing. :)
I think you all are missing an important point of the proposal scene… Yuuri said, “Stay with me until I retire,” and Viktor eventually answered, “I wish you would never retire in that case.”
You can read this response in two ways. The first, of course, is it being a lovely declaration and affirmation of their mutual affections and love. The second is also lovely, and, perhaps, part of why Yuuri begins to cry.
Do not forget that Viktor is also Yuuri’s coach. He is with Yuuri initially for that purpose alone, to coach Yuuri in Yuuri’s potentially last season, while abandoning his own season of skating. So, with that in mind, Viktor saying “I wish you would never retire” is also about him making a specific declaration. That he values Yuuri above his own skating career. That he would continue to coach Yuuri for as long as Yuuri skates. That he might be willing to give up his own skating career just to be at Yuuri’s side.
So I was chatting with @renach4n
and unearthed something very fascinating about Yuuri and Victor’s dynamic. This
one line here applies to absolutely everything they have ever said to each
other. EVERYTHING. And even more so than you might think. Let’s take a look.
Pre-post edit: RIP me, I got that won’t-allow-you-to-save tumblr bug right when I was about to click post and lost a massive chunk of this when I attempted to back it up, so I apologize if some sections (namely the airport and proposal scenes) seem lacklustre. Their re-write was mostly fuelled on salty tears. Hopefully I still got my point across well enough!
i found this through my docs. it is an old thing i wrote for a fic i planned to do (but that lost it’s magic to me) , where adrien gets a girlfriend , named sara, and mari gets hurt protecting her. i felt like i needed to rescue one of the drabbles bc i still really like it, mostly bc of alya.
Marinette’s vision turned red. She had to save her, she had to save Adrien’s girlfriend. She wasn’t going to let destiny take someone else away from Adrien. He wasn’t going to lose someone he loved, not if she could stop it.
She threw her yo-yo to the closest building, jumped off and swung as fast as she could. She extended all her body and released her yo-yo to drop fast to the ground.
“Watch out!” She shouted and pushed Sara out of the way.
Everything happened so quickly. Marinette wasn’t looking around or thinking of the consequences, she only had eyes for Sara.
She was on the floor with her mouth hanging open looking at her. She was safe, Adrien’s girlfriend was safe.
“Are you okay?” Ladybug asked and offered her hand to the girl, when she was kneeling to go closer to her is when she felt the pain. And she understood the expression on Sara’s face.
In her left side, close to her hips a big branch full of thorns cut across her body. Ladybug heard a laugh behind her and then in a fast move the branch was gone.
“Oh my god!” Sara shouted and pointed at Ladybug
“Run” Ladybug ordered and turned to face the akuma.
The Gardener was smiling from ear to ear and for the first time in a long, long time Marinette felt real fear.
It was time to quit… Marinette had to quit.
She jumped back to the street. It would be easier to move if she wasn’t jumping from rooftop to rooftop, and hiding was easier since the building projected shadows where she could hide .
It was still hard. She had a hole in the middle of her tummy, and it wasn’t a tiny one, no matter if Tikki was helping with magic making the suit regenerate and create a type or bandage on top of her wound. It wasn’t enough.
After running four blocks down, she saw her.
Alya was running with Nino behind her, camera in one hand and phone in the other. She was pointing at the rooftops… she was looking for Ladybug, as she always was.
Alya always had found a way to be in the middle of the fight, she was reckless and now, since Nino wasn’t able to stop her, he came along.
Marinette hated how her best friend didn’t thin about the consequences of being in the middle of an attack, but now she couldn’t be happier to see her. “Alya!” Ladybug shouted and ran in her direction, dodging branches and people, trees, and cars, trying to hide in between them so The Gardener couldn’t notice her presence.
Alya didn’t turn around, she was too immersed in the report of the fight, but Nino did and he took Alya’s hand to stop her and point at Ladybug.
“Ladybug!” Alya shouted and ran towards her. The smile on Alya’s face completely disappeared when she realized the different shade of red on Ladybug’s costume.
“Ladybug” Alya gasped.
“I need your help” Marinette said and threw herself to Alya’s arms.
Alya dropped her camera and took Ladybug on her arms. Getting help from Nino after he picked up the camera she had threw to the floor.
“We gotta go… an alley… with no one around…” Ladybug said between heavy breaths.
“You need a hospital, Ladybug!” Nino shouted but moved along with Alya who was doing what she was asked.
“Not now” Ladybug answered and let the strength who was holding her body go, relying only in the strength of her friends.
Alya and Nino ran with Ladybug on her arms to the first abandoned alley they could find. Hiding beside a dumpster and placing Ladybug against a wall
“We have to call Chat Noir” Alya said and took her phone, tapping on the screen a few numbers.
“No” Ladybug shook her head in negative “Y-you g-gotta help-p him”
