they're just... giants

Sorry I stumbled on a gif set the other day and couldn’t get this out of my head.

THEY BOTH DO IT. Who taught these boys this move? Do you think it was Peggy?

Peggy (1940s): If I tell them falling over is a Good Fighting Tactic™ do you think they’ll believe me?

Peggy (2010s): Huh.

JUST ,,,,,,,, LITERALLY ALL WE KNOW ABOUT THE TRICKFOOTS

  • they’re deep gnomes on wilhand’s side
  • they were (are?) thieves and tricksters (which is where the family’s name comes from)
  • wilhand left his family behind when he was young when sarenrae herself came to him in a dream
  • wilhand devoted his life to sarenrae and pledged that that devotion would be upheld by both him and his family
  • pike’s parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, and great-great grandmother have not been mentioned. even in passing.

If there’s a thing Katsuki Yuuri is really, intimately used to, that must be falling. He’s been doing just that all his life, has learned the pains and the joy of a well executed fall, has been drilled on which way to turn and how to get up. He’s prepared to rise again, every time, higher and higher, tumbling down a step just to climb two.

They say the higher you fly, the harder you fall. Failures are recognizable, merciless, because they’re messy and big, always more easily remembered than success.

By this line of reasoning, you’d think spectacular falls would also make a great noise. And sometimes, they do. But not here, not now: that’s the irony of the unforgiving ice. No matter how hard you fall, the sound of your skin scraping against the cold surface is ridiculously faint. A hollow thud, and that’s it.

No matter if you ruined your whole life or just gained a new painful bruise for your already complete collection, the noise will be the same, measly and inconspicuous. Because the real sound is the one you make, grunting or screaming or crying, and the ice doesn’t ever want to steal the spotlight.

Saw a man refusing to let his pregnant wife off the porch because he “saw a rat the size of a dog and I will NOT let it bite you, please go back inside darling”. Made me wonder how protective the Maheswaran’s were of their baby.

My brother can watch wrestling where guys are getting cut open and bleeding everywhere, but I skype my mother to ask about getting period blood off a couch cushion and suddenly it’s “ew gross, I am in the room!”

*hyperventilates*
