Love’s On The Line, Is That Your Final Answer? by PearlyDewdrops (53k)

Harry can’t believe it when Louis, the boy he’s always had a tempestuous rivalry with, asks him to be his boyfriend. Well, pose as his boyfriend, that is—for a new television game show in which young couples are quizzed on how well they know each other for a jackpot of thirty grand.

Reluctantly, Harry agrees—because he’s got student loans to pay off, hasn’t he? What’s the harm? And he can totally deal with keeping his secret thing for Louis under wraps too. This is all just to win some money. It’s fine. No big deal. What could possibly go wrong?

Well, everything. Obviously.

Exclusive Interview by Nagano-san which was broadcasted just a while ago.

This is an exclusive interview done immediately after he returns to Japan. Hanyu Yuzuru senshu has continue to win in the World competitions, what is the secret to this power? What should be noted here, are a few of the words that brought Hanyu senshu running till here. His strengths, his weaknesses and the secret to how he has overcome adverse situations has been gathered.


N: Thank you for your hard work.
Y: Oh, I was surprised.
N: Congratulations to the first 4-peat win in Grand Prix Finals
Y: Thank you.
N: Here are the photos for the 4-peat wins. Do you think there is any parts that are different from the previous wins?
Y: Yes, I could do it without thinking about this successive win.
N: Oh really?
Y: I think perhaps the things that I challenge was too big. And because last seasons’ 3-peats was the first for Men Singles, I feel more nervous there. Because that was over, I think my thought was if it continues so far, what will it become.
N: That’s right. This is the short program this time, “Let’s Go Crazy”
Y: Yes. The face is crazy.
N: The pose is totally different from usual. A little bad feeling.
Y: It’s very bad feeling.
N: Did the atmosphere of the song make you conscious of creating the atmosphere?
Y: Yes. During choreography, it is a little more quiet and a little more cool, but it’s not cool when I start doing it. It’s so hard that I think is it alright.
N: Rock?
Y: Yes, it’s really rock and fun.
*skip
From 3:31
N: First is these words. “take a step forward and take a step forward”. There were actually wrote in one of the program and I was like “wow, these words are so Hanyu san”.
Y: After all I have the feeling that I do not wish to miss a step. Of course there are many things that fail, when practicing it seems like I will run away, and there are a lot of times when it is painful, just for the moment just this time I feel like going forward this season.
N: Are there times when Hanyu san will feel like the heart would break?
Y: There is. When I cannot do a jump, I sometimes will feel like giving up (despair).
N: How bad is the feeling during those times?
Y: Haha! Hmm.. how bad is the feeling? I think I do not want to do it very much. I will not quit. Because I think that is a start when I feel like quitting here. When I think of quitting, it is time to think that it is impossible anymore. I will do it with the feelings that if I can do a no mistake there, it will be cool.
N: That is one of the strengths, isn’t it? When the heart broke, when it became no good, it is hard to change the feeling that to “No! This is the start!”
Y: It is hard for me too. Basically I do not want to lose in the competition. I feel strongly that I want to do a good performance in the competition. That is the origin. The degree of my hating to lose, without that kind of thing, I think I could not have come so far.
Narration: “一進一進“ means when it’s no good, it is time to challenge. Because of that positive nature, he made a comment when he was a middle school student.
Young Yuzu: (goal is) Olympic Gold Medal
Y: I was saying to all around me. Since I was a child I thought that I could get a gold medal at the Olympic. Haha! Since I began skating.
N: It’s amazing!
N: “The most scary thing is what should I do if growth (development) stops” You think about this? This actually did not happened.
Y: When I was in my fourth year in junior school, my rink collapses (close down), I lost my home rink. There was a time when I totally cannot do any triple jumps. To me, that was the most painful. I really feel that growth (development) has stopped. However, It does not mean that growth (development) in the sense of limitation stops. I do not know how to grow (develop). There were times when I did not understand how to grow (develop).
N: At those times, do you get advice from people, or you think on your own?
Y: In the end I think that it is myself to break (that thought). In my case, I take the change to make it higher, towards a very high goal. Really, I don’t know if my fingertips will hang on or not. Jumping while not knowing if my fingertips will hang on or not and biting on the goal. I tried my best.
Narration: When growth (development) stops, whether your hand could reach or could not reach, place your goal at the limit.
Y: Should it be confidence, or should it be excessive self consciousness, haha!
N: To think of it now, that is different. When you did not understand how to grow (develop) when growth (development stops), you considerably chase after yourself (you considerably drive yourself up the wall).
N: Next is from Shuzo san’s interview.
Y: Hahaha!
N: Cliff edge (critical point of moment)! Yahoi (Yeah)!
Y: Yes.
*playback of Shuzo san’s interview
Narration: I love cliff edge is originally Matsuoka san’s words
Y: It’s full of cliff edges. At first, the rink collapsed (close down). And it reopen and I return. Then the earthquake happened and I lost it again. First of all, there is a cliff that the practice environment itself can’t be used.
N: Ah, other skaters probably will not have these experiences.
Y: I think no. Just being able to crawl from there, I do not think it’s quite easy. In this sense, I think it will be okay to be cornered.
N: You love cliff edge?
Y: I love it.
Narration: Enjoy even at the cliff edge. Adversity could be made into nourishment. But sometimes, he says weakness does show on his face. At that time, there are magic words to use.
N: While watching Hanyu san’s strength, as expected is this. Is this routine?
Y: There are many.
N: A thought. I think when I see it I understand what it is. This time is this.
Narration: “I can do it. I can do it. I can do it.” It’s the words right before performance.
Y: I did it this time too. I depend very much on this word this time in Finals. While it is nice to have confidence, after all, when it comes to competition, I just can’t feel confident, get anxious and unpleasant images will spring up. If you say it out from your mouth and listen to it from your ears, I think maybe the head will be able to have that illusion.
N: I see. Something like a spirit of words.
Y: Yes, I think there is spirit of words.
Narration: To overcome weakness, self convincing. And speaking of another routine before competition…
N: The thing that you always listen to before competition, is that the competition songs you are listening to?
Y: That’s not true. I’m singing it quite a lot.
N: Is that so?
Y: It’s lip synching but I sing various of songs.
N: I have the image that you were listening to the song for that time before the competition.
Y: When I get too used to listen to the music, when it is actual competition and the music comes out, there are times when I feel the same as I was listening to it on earphone. Though it depends on circumstances, there are times when I would get away from the music and only listen to it during competition.
Narration: Towards the new season, the new words are…
N: Lastly, what Hanyu san is looking forward to, please write the words.
Y: The true feelings as of now? (place the marker to his face) did I stain here? Ok? I stained it! I do this quite a lot. It’s ok…
N: Haha!
Y: I’m thinking a bit. I’m thinking a bit. What is good? Ok. Ok.
Y: Yes. “結ぶ“ (link/ties/bind)
N: Oh! What do you mean?
Y: It is including the meaning of my name. From the Finals to Nationals, firstly, of course that the growth and practice is linked to results. In other words, the 4 peat
could not be done without various ties. From now on, to treasure every single hour. Furthermore, I hope to be able to link with good results and to connect.
N: Actually after the interview, Hanyu san asked for the pen and wrote another sentence. “これから神る”. (神るis a new created word and it mean anything goes good, also means good in everything, in this sentence, it means from now on, to be good in everything) I’ve asked Hanyu san, aren’t you already good in everything, which he answered totally not good in everything.

Secret CIA assessment says Russia was trying to help Trump win White House
The U.S. has identified individuals and groups who passed Democratic Party material to WikiLeaks.
By https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=729171040

The CIA has concluded in a secret assessment that Russia intervened in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump win the presidency, rather than just to undermine confidence in the U.S. electoral system, according to officials briefed on the matter.

Intelligence agencies have identified individuals with connections to the Russian government who provided WikiLeaks with thousands of hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and others, including Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, according to U.S. officials. Those officials described the individuals as actors known to the intelligence community and part of a wider Russian operation to boost Trump and hurt Clinton’s chances. …

By mid-September, White House officials had decided it was time to take that step, but they worried that doing so unilaterally and without bipartisan congressional backing just weeks before the election would make Obama vulnerable to charges that he was using intelligence for political purposes.

Instead, officials devised a plan to seek bipartisan support from top lawmakers and set up a secret meeting with the Gang of 12 — a group that includes House and Senate leaders, as well as the chairmen and ranking members of both chambers’ committees on intelligence and homeland security.

Obama dispatched Monaco, FBI Director James B. Comey and Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to make the pitch for a “show of solidarity and bipartisan unity” against Russian interference in the election, according to a senior administration official.

Specifically, the White House wanted congressional leaders to sign off on a bipartisan statement urging state and local officials to take federal help in protecting their voting-registration and balloting machines from Russian cyber-intrusions.

Though U.S. intelligence agencies were skeptical that hackers would be able to manipulate the election results in a systematic way, the White House feared that Russia would attempt to do so, sowing doubt about the fundamental mechanisms of democracy and potentially forcing a more dangerous confrontation between Washington and Moscow.

In a secure room in the Capitol used for briefings involving classified information, administration officials broadly laid out the evidence U.S. spy agencies had collected, showing Russia’s role in cyber-intrusions in at least two states and in hacking the emails of the Democratic organizations and individuals.

And they made a case for a united, bipartisan front in response to what one official described as “the threat posed by unprecedented meddling by a foreign power in our election process.”

The Democratic leaders in the room unanimously agreed on the need to take the threat seriously. Republicans, however, were divided, with at least two GOP lawmakers reluctant to accede to the White House requests.

According to several officials, McConnell raised doubts about the underlying intelligence and made clear to the administration that he would consider any effort by the White House to challenge the Russians publicly an act of partisan politics. … McConnell’s office did not respond to a request for comment. After the election, Trump chose McConnell’s wife, Elaine Chao, as his nominee for transportation secretary.

Which Harry Potter Protagonists You Should Fight
  • Harry: Don't fight Harry. He deserves it, but you'll lose. Harry Potter has kicked tougher asses than yours.
  • Hermione: Don't fight Hermione. She doesn't deserve it, and you'll lose.
  • Ron: Depending on which point in the time-line we're talking about, it MIGHT be okay to fight Ron. But it's a risky bet.
  • Newt: #1 Most Fightable. He doesn't really deserve it, but you would win.
  • Tina: DO NOT FIGHT TINA. Porpentina Goldstein is a trained auror who has spent months of her life wishing a motherfucker would, and she will mop the floor with you.
  • Jacob: Eeeeeh, look, I have a strong feeling that while Jacob doesn’t WANT to fight you, he wouldn't go down easy if you tried to fight him.
  • Queenie: I mean, you'll win the fight, but none of your secrets will be safe for the rest of your life. Your choice.
  • Albus Severus: Listen, this whiny emo child is a ball of rage and bitterness. Do not fight Albus Severus Potter.
  • Scorpius: I mean, you COULD fight Scorpius. You would definitely win. But why would you fight Scorpius? Also, Draco will definitely show up at your house and beat you with your own kitchen table.

The only way I’ll accept the hydracap story line to play out is:

  • Steve’s busy being a nazi when Bucky goes to check on him and bucky’s like “wtf the fuck”
  • So he’s like “steve no” and steve’s like “steve yes” and Bucky’s like “that’s only funny when you’re a good guy doing reckless things and not a NAZI doing NAZI THINGS” and steve’s like “(ง'̀-‘́)ง” because he’s a dick now
  • but Bucky can win this
  • because Bucky’s got a secret weapon
  • an assassin you know and love who’s unafraid to step in
  • he’s constantly confusing, confounding the marvel henchmen
  • EVERYONE GIVE IT UP FOR AMERICA’S FAVOURITE FIGHTING TRASH CAN
  • Deadpool
  • so he goes to deadpool like “you know that thing you do where you break the fourth wall or w/e” and deadpool’s like “yeah?”
  • “can i use it for a bit?”
  • so they go off and fight the marvel writers (with swords) and then destroy the new issues (with fire) and then they go to see steve and steve hugs them all and he’s crying and thanking them for saving his characterisation
  • and then they go out for ice cream or something
Hey Lover

Ella. I am so sorry. I actually did not want to tell you about this until the 20th but I’m so bad at keeping secrets.

Congratulations for winning the “I’d Buy the Physical Book” - EreriFicAward

You deserved it!!! <3

So okay. Let’s talk about the book. That’s what I had in mind for the cover (I tried so much shit but liked this waaaay better than all the other covers I did). I still hope that you don’t mind the light pink colour.

The book has 665 pages (Pff actually it was 666 but I had to change some stuff for it to not stay at 666 pages. Like what the fuck Hey Lover. You can’t do that); A5 paper size; Hardcover; 80 g pages; 50 mm (book spine)

Let’s look inside the book:

Every message between Eren, Levi, Jean, etc. has this 10 percent grayscale so it would distinguish from the rest of the book. Oh yeah and the right and left messaging thingy. ;) That was a pain in the ass. They message sooooo much. Duh. But oh my god. This took me some time…

Just look 

Every chapter starts on a new page with the chapter number and title:

The application:

Oooooooh almost forgot to mention. Levi’s not 39 years old in this book. He’s 31. (Eren’s 21) A small little puppy wasn’t that happy about the huge age difference at the end of the fic. So. Instead there being a 18 year difference… it’s just 10 years now.

Okay that’s it for the time being. More to come after the 20th when the actual book arrives ;)

I’m so excited.

Do you already hate me Ella? <3
