this is an olympics blog always

Uploaded by ElenaC as always! *people are working on subs, meanwhile, I’m going to put in one page on my blog the links to the translations I’ve done :)*

[Max is talking about V/M and their hunt for a second olympic title, 8 years after the first one]

M: “And the one who would want to achieve a back-to-back olympic title is Yuzuru Hanyu. In the meantime he won his second world title, after the one he won in Saitama, Japan. The free program skated in Helsinki has already made history; no one else has ever reached this level in a figure skating competition.”

A: “He showed us something truly incredible, striking, he is the only one who could do it. Obviously, there’s great anticipation towards Pyeongchang. He’s skating to a piece by Il Volo.”

[after the EX]

M: “As of now, the emotions he can make us feel are something rare in figure skating. It’s sad to hear and read around that according to some he’s cold and that he’s unable to move people. To me, that’s a heresy, punishable by instant excommunication.”

A: “To me he’s simply an extraordinary skater and, to say things clearly, I believe he is without a doubt the best skater I’ve ever seen, the best skater that has ever set foot inside an ice rink, for his talent, for how he jumps, how he skates, for how he executes the other technical elements and for what he gives out to the audience. His performances are poetry and even his technical movements are poetry because of how natural and innate they are.

This boy was born to do this.”

M: “In addition, it’s who he is that’s incredible, inside and outside the rink. There’s never been one like him before.”

A: “And the results he is achieving- victories and scores aside, it’s the performances that he’s able to give us…not every time, because of course he makes mistakes too, but the performances that he’s been able to give truly show how exceptional he is.”

M: “After the program that lead him to his success, he said to Orser: “Well, I have to give more.””

A: “Yes…he skated a free program like we’d never seen in history, without mistakes…”

M: “But in his own opinion, he could have done/could do even more. This is Yuzuru Hanyu, welcome to his planet. It’s only his.”


I think the best example of a Canadian stereotype is this blog itself. I popped on looking for some laughs and I got some, however, I also found the Olympics results and how we need to help Fort McMurray. That’s what makes us Canadian. The fact that we can’t sit by. We encourage one another, we care for one another, we cant just watch our fellows wither away. We always try to help, by spreading the word or doing something.

Why thank you my friend, my buddy, my pal. 

anonymous asked:

Sorry this took so long! It’s also pretty long so I hope that makes up for having taken awhile to write it? I also made this more than just Simon and Bram bc I need more of everyone and I love everyone. I’ll keep it under a read more since it’s pretty long aha.

Kana’s blog update (05/01):


WTT finished, and it’s already been a week since the the season ended…

It was so quick.

After the competition, we stayed in Japan this week!

We did the athlete check, helped out at the ice dance try outs, went to latin dance lessons, and we participated in the Pyeongchang Olympics Team Building Camp!

Basically… these two weeks were too busy. lol.

Being team captain at WTT…

When I was told that I was Captain, the only words I had were “What!!!! Why?!”

The feeling of “What should I do?” overwhelmed me, so I watched past WTT videos and thought hard.

anonymous asked:

If the characters were youtubers, what would their channels be like? (I love this blog so much!!)

Levi: criticising stuff he’s found on the Internet, basically Onision 
Erwin: directing sidesplittingly funny films like Brandon Rodgers, and also lazy day vlogs
Hanji: stupid experiments, like “WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU MIX A METRIC TONNE OF MENTOS WITH AN OLYMPIC SWIMMING POOL OF COLA?” or “DRIVING A CAR OVER A TARP COVERED IN OLIVE OIL” and it’s a lot of her cackling madly with Moblit screaming
Mike: dog training videos, and earlier videos of him, Nile and Erwin running around pulling stupid pranks
Armin: those hella useful revision videos, and they’d always involve him going off on adorable tangents that he may or may not edit out
Eren: loads of vlogs and prank videos, kind of like Ben Phillips 
Mikasa: videos of animals and sports, with a lot of Eren popping up in random places
Marco: really adorable vlogs, like Dodie Clark, and co-labs with Jean and Sasha
Jean: so many prank videos, mainly on Eren, Reiner and Connie, and also maybe some Let’s Plays
Sasha: eating challenges and badass archery and riding videos (like this one)
Connie: badass, hilarious gamer channel, known for making people laugh, and the best co-labs with Sasha and Reiner
Ymir: parkour videos and adorable vlogs of her and Krista on dates
Reiner: loads of dumb challenges and vlogs like Ryan Doka 
Bertholdt: craft channels, and also little short films and animations
Annie: lots of videos of her cats, and also really adorable videos with Bertholdt like this one, and they’re known as the two YouTubers that NEED to get together
Krista: lot’s of fashions and make up videos, but also really adorable ‘day in her life’ vlogs where she’s shopping with Reiner or Annie or Mikasa, or on a date with Ymir

Dangan's and their tumblr blogs

Naegi: really standard theme. totally in darker pastels and uses cute userboxes. tags everything. friends page, exasperated story posts about his class, memes. description is like three feet long. average following, like 200-300 followers.

Maizono: def has a pink/blue aesthetic and blogs all day about her concerts. tags her friends in everything she loves and thinks they’ll love it too. changes icon like every few days but it’s always just a different selfie. instagram and like 600 heart emojis. description is minimalistic: “Sayaka/17/Idol/🎤❤💙❤💙🎤/(inspirational quote here). Huge follower count, still makes a big deal about gaining 100 followers. Does a lot of giveaways.

Ikusaba: uses her name meaning as a url so it’s like “xxcorpse-warbladexx”. colors are the generic black bg and white text. pretty much part educating people on weapons, part vague-ing about her crush (i.e. reblogging affectionate posts and tagging as “crush”), and mostly talking about her sister. description is just “ikusaba mukuro|soldier|female” and a link to her sister’s blog. Doesn’t talk much about herself or her friends. Hasn’t touched the thing in 5 years. Still has a decent 400 followers

Kuwata: BOLD ASS COLORS AND EYE STRAIN OUT THE WAZOO. seriously, this kid has the most extreme, saturated colors of anyone else. he sees no issue with it. triggered jokes probably, only ‘cause he doesn’t understand what it even means. he posts about his wins in baseball and vagues about his cousin in a bad and really obviously-about-her way. Everyone that tags him calls him Kuweenie. He constantly sends his friends memes in their ask. Shitpost bots. Like 800 followers. Desc. is just “Yo, I’m Leon Kuwata!” and then just his fucking life story honestly. Rants about baseball 24/7, no one knows why he still plays tbh. Selfie game strong.

Fujisaki: best theme of them all, made it themself. Green colors, always posts things like “if i ever reblog something offensive please tell me I promise I’ll delete it!!” like 4 times a week just in case. The most unproblematic. Gets really excited when they get a new piece of tech and blogs about it all day. “I’m Chihiro, a professional programmer in Japan. I hope you enjoy your stay on my blog! 💚💚”. Is science side of tumblr occasionally. Uses the “dark side of ___ show me the illegal ____” meme too much. Friend page, about page, page after page after page holy shit my dude chill out. Not one to show their face but reblogs pictures of them their friends post.

Oowada: Biker aesthetic. Black and gold colors, bold text, “no spellcheck we die like mne”. If he does something that he blogs multiple posts in a row about, he tags it as an “adventure”. Blogged till post limit when he tried getting Ishimaru to learn how to ride his motorcycle. 50000 pictures of him and his gang. Desc. is literally just a quote from a movie and title is the name of his gang. Reblogs anime characters with pompadours, namely Knuckle (hxh) and Josuke (jjba) because he loves comparing his fucking monstrosity hair to theirs. Tags posts about friendship as “bro” so Ishimaru sees. 200 followers.

Ishimaru: study blog. Barebones theme, only just changed the default icon last week. Posts a lot about his class and study notes, answers asks from people about tips on doing work and finding motivation. Tags everything because he loves being orderly. Has a reminder on his phone to check Oowada’s bro tag and makes his own, but it’s just tagged as his name. Low-key conspiracy theorist and nobody knows what he looks like until the motorcycle post stuff happens. Gets anons calling him a cinnamon roll and responds “THIS IS WHAT IS CALLED AN “INTERNET MEME”, YES? HAHA, EXCELLENT! BUT, WHY A CINNAMON ROLL?“. always talks in capslock. Every post feels more intense than an action movie. No description, but the title is "ISHIMARU’S STUDY BLOG”. No emojis ever. Those are illegal on his blog.

Yamada: Anime. Manga. Probably gets deep into the discourse for his favorite things. Elitist attitude on different anime/manga. Posts updates on his doujins constantly, and everyone reblogs it with yelling. Posts a selfie every few months. Gets a lot of anon hate but he shuts them tf up quick. Separate blog for nsfw things. 1k followers and it goes down and up drastically at random. “Yamada/The Alpha and The Omega|Doujin artist|17 years young”

Celeste: Red and black aesthetic. Definitely the most edgy blog aside from Enoshima. No memes, but she reblogs a ton of those vampire aesthetic things and probably follows komaedalovemail to reblog the weird audio and video posts. It’s literally just an aesthetic blog of her in Lolita outfits, vampires, Victorian era dresses, and haunted castles. Her description is just her name and age. Like 20 followers and a cornchip.

Oogami: Flower cursor that Fujisaki helped install. Pretty much just an instructional blog she uses to teach people things like self-defense and a little offense. Half that and half talking about her friends and posts Asahina tags her in, even if she’s not particularly interested. Good following, like 600.

Kirigiri: “Blood splatter analysis” and other things like that. Actively looks for misinformation to correct it. Receipts on literally everyone, has no receipts of herself because there’s nothing you can get that she regrets. Dark purple/burgundy aesthetic. “Kyouko/Japan/Kuwata stop tagging me in those stupid memes”. Gets tagged by Maizono in a lot of pictures of her and others. Occasional gore from horror movies and she adds how it’s unrealistic looking and rates it. 400 followers.

Fukawa: book reviews everywhere. Disses Yamada’s doujins so much that he made a.doujin about her novel. She blocked him. Tags Togami in everything, but he won’t reblog it if she tagged him, even if he likes the content. Everyone gets so confused on why most of her posts go from reserved and kinda salty to ALL CAPS NO PUNCTUATION WE DIE LIKE MEN WOOOOO bc no one knows about Syo and Fukawa just deletes the posts when she switches back. Talks about Komaru and Togami a lot.

Hagakure: so many links to things it looks like a scam blog at first. Gif of a smoky crystal ball as his header. “9/11 was an inside job, click here for more”. Clickbait and unsourced info. Does post some neat videos and facts about things like tarot cards. Memes with Kuwata and tags them all in stupid shitposts. Probably taped 43 pictures of Nicholas Cage in Naegi’s dorm, posted about it, and reblogged Naegi’s frantic posts about it.

Asahina: ocean aesthetic. Takes like 40 selfies a day and blogs about her at the olympics and any of her fellow students she might see there. Stresses the importance of taking care of yourself and kinda doubles as a cute blog and a self help blog. Tags Oogami in animal memes and vines, which she always reblogs. Takes pictures and blogs about everything she’s doing atm, even if it’s just taking a walk.

Togami: Secretly a memester too. Pretends he doesn’t like memes and denies reblogging(then deleting) them. Kirigiri has all the receipts on that. Hagakure finds posts about the Illuminati and tags him with “look your family”. Generally doesn’t use his blog much except to boost his ego. Usually posts about how annoying his classmates are. Unironically says “plebs”.

Enoshima: Cutesy and mostly her modeling pictures along with her around her classmates. Has an overall tone of a generic cute, smart, popular high schooler. Has like 6k followers and gets the Gross Anons. The worst shitposter of them all, but also insensitive and posts memes reflecting that. Autoplay music player at full volume.

anonymous asked:

So, like, is there a chance of mexico becoming canon due to the whole russia 2018 cup?

Unfortunately, I don’t think so! Himaruya’s been focusing on World Stars and hasn’t posted on his blog in a long while, so it seems like he doesn’t have time to create new characters, even for big events! There was hope for canon Brazil due to the Rio Olympics last year for example, but nothing happened! He’s unpredictable, so there’s always a chance, but it seems very unlikely!

ACNL Games Masterpost

Hello everybody! This post itself contains every ACNL game that I and some of my fellow followers have come up with ^-^ I would consider this to be my main contribution to the Animal Crossing fandom! There are actually 3 ways to get access to these games. They are:

  • This masterpost itself.
  • This page on my blog.
  • By using the tag “acnl olympics”. (This is the tag I use for all of my games).

I may as well give a brief background to my reasoning for making these games! I have always enjoyed playing Animal Crossing ever since the release of the Gamecube version, and I have always wanted to keep it more entertaining by coming up with clever games for me and my friends to enjoy! My goal is for everyone to enjoy them as much as I do and use them as an opportunity to bring this fandom closer together! ^-^ Signal boost much appreciated! :D

If you have any more fun and interesting ideas, please feel free to let me know! If I like the idea, I will be willing to post it and give you the proper credit you deserve! ^-^

Without further ado, here are all the games! (I will be adding more!)

anonymous asked:

Hello, I have always felt drawn to Saturn and I somehow ended up on your blog, do you have any links or information on it?

In fact, I do! Saturn is patron of witchcraft, necromancy, and the dark arts; and also governs natural laws, vegetation, weather, boundaries, time, and death. In Greek and Roman mythology, he was father of the Olympic gods, but was castrated and exiled to Tartarus, or the Cave of Night.

In astrology, Saturn governs the zodiac signs Capricorn and Aquarius. The sign Saturn was in at the time of your birth signifies how prone to melancholy you are, the level of struggle your life will contain, how you will process mourning, certain aspects of your morality, and your accumulated spiritual or “karmic” debt.

Here is a previous post I made of Saturn’s Magickal Correspondences, and here is a link to all content regarding Saturn on this blog. If you have any other questions, don’t hesitate to ask! x

anonymous asked:

After all the drama of the past few days, I'm so happy to see you back posting again! This place was such a negative and unpleasant place to be without you. Sometimes I think you're the glue that holds the TS fandom together <3

Sorry to hear there has been drama. 😔

Do my best to keep my blog in a positive place and welcoming to others.

Drama and negativity seems to be going around enough in the world for us to bring it to a platform like this.

I hope the drama goes away especially with an Olympic season ahead.

Chin up anon 😊

Enjoy your day and thank you for your kind words. ❤Always grateful for kind people like you.

So 2 years ago today I made this blog and survived 2 years of this fandom lol but there are always good times with this fandom such as when we all live blogged the summer Olympics in 2012 and we’d always do these like guess your favorite dance things and last June we found out like 8 people in the fandom liked hockey and that was fun. This year we all live blogged the Winter Olympics and I complained about basketball in March and also live blogged the whole season. So this is not a long thing with me rambling about the last 2 years this a follow forever and I’ve kind of categorized everyone who’s in this follow forever so enjoy! :) (I was previously claralexandralukasiak I changed my URL a few weeks ago if you didn’t know)

“I take my Bible with me, sometimes two of them, when I travel… . I always pray at every competition, when the judge’s hand goes up I am praying, and there are little Scriptures I like to quote. That keeps me motivated when I am about to go out on the competition floor. I would say little short prayers, quoting Scriptures: I can do all things through Christ, don’t fear, be courageous. Little things like that get me motivated.”

jncera  asked:

Young Justice for the meme thing?

  • who is the aesthetic blogger: KALDUR. He has that calm beauty in how he presents himself and that shows in his posts. Most of his posts are reblogs, but occasionally he adds his own original photography to the mix.
  • who is the sj blogger: Artemis. She’s a minority with a disabled mom, living in the poorer area of the city with a criminal dad. Girl is probably quick to call someone out on their sexist/racist/ableist/classist bullshit. Barbara is the next biggest SJ blogger because she sees the gritty underbelly of Gotham thanks to her dad’s profession. She sees how his hands can be tied due to the red tape and knows that things need to be changed at a cultural level if they are ever going to be changed legally.
  • who is the fandom blogger: M'gann. Like, do I even need to explain why? She convinced her crush to name himself after the love interest of her favorite character in her favorite sitcom. That alone should be the sign.
  • who puts everything under a read more: Dick. Like, he’ll tag it with all these sad tags like #:(((( and #whatever Bruce and #sigh but then the others click on it and it’s like an explosion of goofy gifs and Rick Rolling. Everyone just rolls their eyes, but some of the gifs are actually pretty good so people save them for future reference. The only time he’s serious and actually using his blog to vent under a “read more” is when it’s tagged #tbd.
  • who posts the most selfies: Cassie and Karen. Cassie just posts pictures of herself doing ridiculous things, making ridiculous faces. Cassie probably won the selfie Olympics, let’s be real. And Karen doesn’t always post a lot of selfies per se, but posts a lot of pictures of what she’s doing in the lab. Mal always leaves comments on them about how proud of her he is.
  • who is the biggest meme enthusiast: Bart. It drives them all crazy because he brings back memes from months or even years ago. He still uses the “surprise bitch!” meme on a regular basis, much to everyone’s dismay. He’s been banned from doing anything with the “colors of the sky” post. It was the only compromise he was willing to make.
  • who makes really quality themes: Zatanna! She makes really fantastic, minimalist themes. But she sometimes makes more elaborately designed themes for her friends (Or really anyone else who messages her. She’s friendly like that.). Wally still gushes over the science-theme she made him months ago.
  • who reblogs posts with pointless comments: Jaime. No one tells him to stop though because he’s just so damn sweet. And all his comments, though pointless, are really positive and nice. So, they let it slide.
  • who has the most followers: Wally. No one understands why, exactly. It drives Artemis crazy. He swears it’s because of the one shirtless selfie he posted months ago, but Dick says it’s probably because Connor was also shirtless in the background. M'gann says, very sweetly, that maybe it’s from all the funny puns he posts. No one else agrees.
  • who uses 12 emojis in every post: Raquel. She’s not great at verbalizing what she’s thinking, even in person. She uses a lot of hand gestures and movement when she talks, so when she types she relies on emojis and gifs to help get her point across.
  • who had a really embarrassing superwholock phase that no one is allowed to speak of ever again: Connor. He and M'gann bond over loving tv shows together and he just… sorta let it all get away from him.

(This was so fun! Thank you!)

Hi Sousuke, Rin! I just wanted to let you know that your blog always brings me a smile whenever I'm feeling sad or even depressed and I'm really thankful!! Also a reminder that even if you're busy, once in a while just have fun and relax a little!!

This is really unexpected; I didn’t know people liked reading about our lives, but we’re glad it makes you happy! And we will! We’ve just been busy lately preparing for the Olympics, with the Olympic trials and everything.

And everyone else I follow but didn’t mention in this because I got lazy to type them all, then it can be found right here in my blogroll. Again thank you for following me and putting up with my weirdness.


Ok I’m honestly tired of the amount of hate that Calum blogs and blogs in general are getting simply because they are reblogging and posting things about Nathan Adrian. I get that some older fans feel some sort of “superiority” (?) or sense of protection because you’ve known about him longer but that is no excuse to go around and calling people rude things because they started liking him too. And no, they don’t like him just because Calum looks like him, yes that might have gotten their attention at first but I haven’t seen a SINGLE blog that only likes Nathan for his looks. They all talk about how sweet he is, goofy and overall adorable. They all seem to be genuinely interested in swimming now and have watched all the swimming events of the Olympics this year. Stop giving them hate because it’s so uncalled for and honestly Nathan wouldn’t like you all doing that. He’s always smiling and cheerful so be like him and let others live.

anonymous asked:

Why would someone "accuse" you of being white when you think Japanese imperialism was terrible? It actually was and even if someone would be as outdated to say such thing, a not little part of Europe was on the side of the axis. Also white people?

It was a sort of “why do you talk so much about non-European imperialism, don’t you know white supremacy is GLOBAL and WORSE” kind of mentality. This idea that I was probably a white person whose main motivation in saying “I hate how ppl play down the awfulness of Japanese imperialism” is to diminish the severity of European imperialism with a sort of “everyone does it narrative”. 

Which is just so incredibly Western-centric: not everyone’s families always lived in places where only white people had the power to oppress in this manner. And it usually reeks of oppression olympics. 

I generally don’t like how a lot of blogs here discuss WW2 because there’s a tendency to fit the Japanese conquest of Asia in some sort of rigid white vs POC dichotomy (as Japan fought the US + European colonial empires). It completely neglects how Japanese supremacy was a thing in Asia. Japan lost the war, but they entered it as a colonial empire with one of the most powerful navies in the world. They had real power to oppress us, and did so on racial lines (Japanese vs non-Japanese, Japanese are destined to rule other Asians etc), as Nazi Germany did. And yes, there were a lot of similarities in the militant nationalist ideologies of Nazi Germany and Showa Japan, even though the geographic distance between the two limited the extent of cooperation.
