this show is kind of gold

one thing I love about Yuri on Ice is how filled with… positivity it is. Because they all make mistakes, they all aren’t perfect, yet they all go on, and find happiness. The writers didn’t delve in overused angst tropes that hurt the character needleslly and I think that’s great? 

JJ doesn’t win yet he’s loved and supported by his family and girlfriend, and it’s important even if he was kind of a jerk. Because whe you’re the “best one”, you’ve got so much more pressure to keep being the best, and you’re always afraid to fail and disappoint everyone. Here they showed that if you fail it doesn’t mean that people won’t love you. 

Yurio wins the gold medal, but his resolve is to beat Yuri, because winning doesn’t mean having reached the end, but only another milestone. And he’s so mature to know that. 

Yuri fails again to win the gold, but this time he doesn’t let himself feel down. He wanted that gold medal for himself and Victor, but you see him beaming on the podium anyway. Because he now knows it’s only a matter of time before he can have it. 

Not to mention the relationship between Yuri and Victor, that’s so mature and supporting and respectful and where do you even see that in media? I know it would have been much better if they showed a kiss or explicitly said the three words for a number of reasons, but this felt real, tangible. They showed a love so believable it didn’t need to be stressed.

And these are only the things that come to my mind about this last episode. And I mean, it doesn’t mean that life it’s like that, there are always struggles, but the point is that you can tackle those struggles and overcome them I think? Even if you need to take one year to think about it. Maybe it can give you more perspective to make a better choice later. 

And tbh I don’t know where I was going with this post, I’m just glad Yuri on Ice exists. 

victor and yuuri are NOT on the same page

a few more thoughts before i pass the fuck out

in victor’s mind, they’re engaged.  they’re going to get married.  there is literally nothing more he can do to show his love to yuuri.  nothing more he feels he has to do.  he is secure in their relationship.  he assumes the same for yuuri.  when he says “we’ll get married after you win the gold” he (obviously) doesn’t literally mean that yuuri winning the gold is a condition to their marriage, he means it as a lighthearted, motivational joke of sorts.  

look at his face when he says it.  

“ne, yuuri?? ;D” 

he doesn’t realize he’s just unintentionally reinforced the conditionality of his love for yuuri’s anxiety.  

he’s kind of an oblivious ditz where the impact of his words and deeper emotional shit come in, as has been very well established at this point.  

so of course now, at the grand prix final, after having essentially told yuuri the night before that the ring on his finger symbolizes their eternal bond, he is perfectly content with paying more attention to the event than to yuuri.  

he’s off in his own lil world (again).  he literally cannot fathom that yuuri would feel insecure in their relationship at this point, and for the most part, reasonably so– he pretty much just proposed the night before.  so he’s thinking about his future and his friends and shit now that he has found the missing part of his life he was looking for: life & love with yuuri. and now he’s symbolically eternalized that bond.  

so of course, the future and friends and competing are good and healthy things to be thinking about, yknow, not fixating on one person and one person only– when it is not at the expense of your boyfriends BLATANT ANXIETY THAT IS HAPPENING RIGHT IN FRONT OF U. 


STOP BEING A BAD BOYFRIEND VICTOR.  LOOK AT THE MAN IN FRONT OF U.  LOOK AT HIM.  HAVE U EVEN TOLD THIS BEAN ABOUT THE LOVE AND LIFE HE INTRODUCED U TO?  HM?  HAVE U?

AND YUURI, STOP ASSUMING YOU KNOW WHAT VICTOR WANTS AND WHAT’S BEST FOR HIM.  TRY ASKING HIM, YOU LIL BISCUIT.

these precious tadpoles honestly need to get their shit together and i have every inch of faith that they will

Archie, pointing at Henry, Emma, Snow, Charming, Belle, Zelena, Hook, Pongo, the Blue fairy, some random citizen of Storybrooke, and the whole Ouat fandom:

It does not hurt you to show heart. It is not difficult to give someone a little bit of happiness, a little bit of kindness or even the simplicity of human decency. And yet, some act like it is gold dust, gold dust that would pain them to have to share, gold dust that is not worth sharing at all. When you are unkind, when you are cruel or unnecessary, you do not look like greatness, you look like a coward.

It also jumps a lot between perspective’s so be warned

peculiar masterpost.

MASTERLIST. KO-FI.

Keep reading

Me, the Ranger Half-elf, to a blacksmith, “May, I have armor for my cat please.”

The game master sighs frustratedly and responds as the blacksmith, “Excuse me, what? Is this some kind of joke?”

In between giggles and snickers, I say, “No, it’s not a joke, I need armor for my cat, I travel a lot.”

“Just leave the cat at home then!”

“It’s a special cat,” moves character to the side and shows off my Tressym companion, “I need armor for it.”

Game master, breaking character, “You know what FINE! I’ll let you armor the stupid cat, just shut up about the stupid cat. Also you need to give up all of your gold for it.”

Me, out of character now, “That’s fair, especially since you keep trying to kill her.”

In the same game I tried to heal our Dragonborn monk and rolled a zero, and he wouldn’t stop saying ‘he wasn’t intrested in half elves’ even though I was just trying to heal him.

Just got back from Moana. I cried so many times rip my tear ducts

Shiny is one of the best villain songs ever omg. it is exactly the kind of song i would sing if I, too, were a giant, gold-encrusted, bioluminescent murder-crab monster. i don’t know what i’m saying but i relate to Tamatoa on a weirdly deep and spiritual level. i love Jemaine Clement’s villain songs.

‘you could try, try, try, but you can’t expect a demigod,

to beat a decapod, (look it up)’

so good I really love the stupid crab *finds the Moana soundtrack and puts the song on repeat*

also in the trailers, they showed the Cars 3 crash and the seven-year-old kid across the aisle sighed loudly and said ‘Do they really have to make a Lightning McQueen 3?’

same, kid, same

That post got longer than I meant it to but the juxtaposition of catastrophic magical or supernatural power with completely unforgiving situations that their incredible expertise is a plot thread that I absolutely adore, both in serious works, and because it’s comedy gold. Imagine an evil wizard dealing with a toddler in a context stripped of the easy out of “blood sacrifice” 

And Lapis. I can’t believe the fandom has not gotten in on this, but that’s exactly Lapis’s problem. She’s the ancient, mysterious, catastrophically powerful Ocean Gem and she’s currently stuck making abstract art in a barn off the edge of a small coastal town. One time she played baseball and committed almost zero effort into it. 

Lapis is exactly the kind of character I think a lot of other shows would save, hide from view, try to only present in serious, dark situations rather than ever incorporating her into the slice-of-life elements of the show, but SU does, and that’s what I think is the real gift of SU.

It isn’t that all our scary villains are huge dorks with nothing threatening about them. These are, in fact, incredibly powerful and dangerous people. If you think Peridot is a declawed kitten, this episode showed us that she can in fact pick up cars with her mind now and Gem Harvest showed us that she’s built guard robots in her downtime. She made a functional tank. I’m already preparing myself to have this argument when we eventually have Jasper… learning to knit or taking up impressionist painting or however her arc boils down and people start talking about her like she’s a fluffy puppy and not someone who could probably break the largest bone in your arm with her thumb and forefinger. 

Because these things aren’t mutually irreconcilable. Because the whole charm of the show is the idea that from the start, the premise was “let’s take a supersoldier and a couple of terrifyingly powerful revolutionaries, one of whom regularly trains against holograms armed with sharpened weapons trying their hardest to murder her, and make them live in an idyllic tourist beach town and awkwardly raise their 13-year-old son.” 

The point is that the same person who thinks popping the collar on her jacket is an Incredible Act Of Rebellion and considers it a wild night out if she’s drinking apple juice is also someone who took a sword in each hand and sprinted across a crowded environment full of enemies, cutting them down in devastatingly effective strikes and could, and would do it again.

It’s hilarious, and it also affords a degree of intimacy and character exploration we wouldn’t normally have. And that’s something I try to capture in my Abstract Gems AU, too- I might draw Blue Diamond as an unearthly, ethereal Ancient Being but that doesn’t change the fact that she literally came to Earth to cry and kidnap Steven’s dad.

RogueOne The Italian Job AU  » 

Jyn Erso - estranged daughter of criminal mastermind Galen Erso - lead a completely normal life, working as a private safecracker for the police, when one day a ghost from the past showed up at her office and offered her something she couldn’t resist - revenge for her fathers death.

One year ago her father assembled a team to steal 35 million dollars worth of gold bullion from a safe held by Italian gangsters in Venice. The team included Cassian Andor, a professional thief; Bodhi Rook, a computer expert; Baze Malbus, their wheelman; Orson Krennic, their inside man; and Chirrut Îmwe, explosives expert. When heist was sucesfully completed, Krennic betrayed the team, killed Galen and left everyone else for death, while taking all the gold with him. 

Now, when Cassian and his team are back to Los Angeles, their only purpose is to revenge their mentor’s death and get back their gold. But they can’t do it without a  safecracker, and this is where Cassian needs Jyn. The girls with whom he always had tense relationship; the girl who blames him for her father’s death and constant absence; the girl he always had very mixed but very strong feelings about.

Their enemy is strong, the odds are not in their favor. They don’t have luck ,but they have each other.

Would the team make it out this time?

Following Rusty’s footsteps

As some of you may know, @drambuieandscotch, also known as @askrustynail, has passed away. This is and has been an incredibly hard time on a lot of people, and the loving outpour of people with art and kind words just goes to show how cherished he was by so many people.

But one thing Rusty did, was take the work of others, and make it into his own original thing: drinks, for no reason other than to make other people happy and a unique and creative way.

For him and @technomod, his loving wife, I am also following this tradition.

Ladies and Gentleman and everyone inbetween, I give you


The Rusty Nail

This gold and red crystal soap is jam packed with scent, my most powerful and popular one, BlackBerry and Amberwood. It’s loaded with glitter, golden mica dust, a shimmering white mica star that leaves a lovely shimmer on your skin, all topped with a wedge of lime.

The Techno Mod

A true ocean gem, with gemstones and pearls of white and pink, ang crystals that fade from turquoise to seaweed green. Each shard loaded with the sparkles you only see in the rolling waves, and scented to match with a hefty amount of Seaspray essential oil


and finally

The Unity

this was a very special one to make

A beautiful combination of Jasmine oil and Mint oil went into this. Each part was made separately, from the gold and blue mica hearts, to the mic of rose and raspberry mica crystals, to the sapphire and silver ring. This scent has left my room smellings delightful, in a subtle and lovely way.



My heart goes out to all of Rustys’ friends, his family, and his wife. 

@technomod , please contact me with shipping details so I can send these off to you as soon as possible. They’re all yours.

From these three soaps though, it gave me enough offcuts to make quite a selection more

If you would also like these, they are yours, be they for friends, family or whoever.


Crayon himself was lucky enough to get a custom made drink by Rusty 8 months ago. It was a simple gin and tonic, made in the most delightfully unique way, by a delightfully unique man.

Here’s to you, Rusty

BITS AND PIECES OF SUPERGIRL 210 THAT I LOVED OR HAD FEELINGS ABOUT – a list compiled by me

  • i loved a lot of things, which was a massive plot twist even to myself.
  • UGH SPACE FAM <3
    • SPACE DAD AND HIS CRIME FIGHTING DAUGHTERS <3
    • “to be your friend” ;________;
    • “i’m here with you, i see you” ;_______;
    • (enjoy your new space mom, girls)
    • (SHARON LEAL IS TOO GOOD FOR THIS SHOW. THAT SCENE WAS TERRIBLE AND SHE MADE IT GOLD. I CRIED, YOU GUYS. ACTUAL TEARS.)
  • KARA DANVERS, CATCO MAGAZINE.
    • “like having a deadly penpal you see once a year.”
      • only kara would find having a nemesis cute, and then… follow through on it kind of being cute. it was weird, and totally bonkers, but entirely consistent for kara. “you did this one good thing so you get a gold star and a chance to escape!”
        • KARA LIKES HAVING A NEMESIS OKAY, THAT’S KIND OF ADORABLE.
        • “that was nice of you. stupid, but nice.”
      • “i will punish him for you”
        • KARA HONEY. your heart is in the right place.
    • and i forgive her because leslie was on fire this episode:
      • “this is copyright infringement asshat. i’m going to sue you, and then i’m going to murder you.”
      • “your cosplay sucks.”
      • “you know what i love? little boys who think they can do a better job than the woman who’s an actual superhero. it’s pathetic.”
        • this was fucking hilarious, but also true.
        • but i also think it was supposed to be the mission statement of the episode, which they totally failed on with james and winn. i don’t want them to quit, which is a total turn around from how i’ve felt about this storyline all season. they can’t have us believe mon-el is doing this for the wrong reasons, set james’ motives up as the right ones as a contrast, and then still want us to believe he shouldn’t be doing it. i don’t think that anymore, which leaves unanswered: why does kara think they shouldn’t be doing this? that they’re putting themselves in danger doesn’t cut it for me. no one at the DEO has powers and she happily works with them. her own sister is the one on the front line with her more often than note (side note: NOTABLY ABSENT THIS EPISODE WHEN SHE SHOULD HAVE BEEN FRONT AND CENTER and tbh that’s how you know kara’s position is false because okay this is not a side note this is important we’re leaving this parenthetical behind– alex proves kara doesn’t actually feel this way, and they had to sideline her so it wasn’t glaringly obvious (or bad writing but you can’t change what you’re given to work with okay) 
        • WHY DOESN’T SHE WANT THEM DOING THIS?
        • WHAT IS KARA’S DEAL? 
        • i have some theories. i’m not saying they’re doing this well if it is what they are doing, but there were two shots in this episode that screamed something that i’ve felt they’ve been trying to set up all season long: KARA IS SO ALONE RIGHT NOW.
          • and we got kara as supergirl standing alone in the middle of the DEO, and kara as kara sitting alone without her glasses on in the middle of her apartment.
          • cat’s gone. clark stopped in for a second and then bailed. alex has her own stuff going on. james didn’t revert back to friend!james, he basically disappeared from her life. winn is working at the DEO but the superfriends are completely over.
            • and yes some of that is her own doing LOOKING AT YOU, JAMES, I’M SO SORRY BUDDY.
              • every scene where he talked about mon-el like he hadn’t been cast aside for that dude in kara’s life HURT ME.
          • but it makes the whole mon-el thing… slightly more weighty.
            • because okay i was going to save this for later but kara to me in that scene where she confronted him about why he was doing this looked hurt. because in the absence of anyone else, mon-el at least wanted to work with her on this path she’s chosen. everyone is off doing their own thing and he wanted to do her thing. and then it turned out he just wanted to do her. that’s not a team mate.
              • and her sad, sad face at the end knew she’d lost him as a team mate too. :(
          • so back to winn and james. them being out there without her is more dangerous than being out there with her. but remember how she learnt a small lesson earlier this season about her path not always being the right path?
            • (side note to say i wasn’t a fan of what i think was an accidental implication that powers are what make them powerful when she shut down james and then turned to leslie. if that’s something they were going for then this show is fucking lost. but i don’t think it was.
            • “you two were heroes to me way before all this.”)
          • and how everyone else is off on their own paths at the moment?
          • last week kara worked out what kind of reporter she wants to be. and this week we saw her having a little adventure with that and then getting completely sidetracked by her nemesis, but if wishes were horses the way this is going is kara realising she has to step out of everyone’s shadow and cast her own. that everyone’s shadow is slowly drifting away from her. supergirl is an ideal, according to cat, but kara has to live inside that ideal and i don’t think she’s ever put any thought into her actual purpose.
            • maybe now she will?
            • (it’s there, there is good stuff in this season but god the execution is just appalling and making me sad.)
  • ALL THE OTHER STUFF:
    • THEY DIDN’T EVEN HAVE CAT IN THE PREVIOUSLIES. OUTRAGE.
    • MAGGIE AND ALEX BETTING ON KARA. SHARED BB SISTER.
    • MAGGIE IS A VEGAN. thank you cliche.
    • i love winn so much these days, who even am i?
      • “superhero kindergarten.”
      • he called siobahn leslie’s girlfriend!
      • “…and they are also maybe captured.”
    • j’onn and m’gann’s faint-and-catch was so OTT my eyes turned into hearts.
      • spacemoooooom.
    • what is this arbitrary prison facility leslie was being kept in? wasn’t she locked up by the DEO?
      • kara asking the important questions - why was she in a human facility?
      • GUYS YOU’VE LOST CONTROL OF YOUR SHOW’S INTERNAL COHERENCE. REMEMBER WHEN ALIENS WERE A SECRET AND THE DEO WAS CAPTURING THEM ALL?
    • “i’m the other superman.” I LAUGHED. VERY HARD, I LAUGHED.
  • AND NOW A REENACTMENT OF MY THOUGHTS DURING THAT LAST SCENE:
    • oh no he’s waiting for her and there is music.
    • OH NO
    • OH NO
    • OH NO
    • OH— WAIT.
    • SHE’S NOT INTO THIS.
    • THIS ISN’T GOING WHERE THE MUSIC SAYS IT’S GOING.
    • WE ARE BEING PLAAAAYED OH MY GOD IT’S OVER AND IT DID NOT HAPPEN OH MY GOD.
  • (this is either the worst romantic setup in the history of television, yes including every terrible example you are currently thinking of (maybe), oooooooooor they are geniuses and this is possibly the first case of straightbaiting in this post-UST era. PLEASE BE THE LATTER, PLEASE BE THE LATTER.)
You are so stereotypical:
The boy from the ‘burbs
all short brown hair, stark cheekbones
and just enough muscle tone
The guy with a sharp wit to woo with
and a reluctant tongue to kiss with
The kind who makes one girl an exception for a while
Just long enough she thinks she’s special
Just long enough she believes in her heart of hearts
That his is solid gold
Just long enough she finds herself saying:
‘Nobody else understands him’
‘He needs someone to ground him’
‘I’ll show him what it means to love and be loved’

Girl, run.
Girl, hide.
Girl, cut your losses and torch that bridge now.
Boys full of half-promises and bitter laughter aren’t worth your time
An asshole is an asshole and what you’ll get from him is shit

And to the boy I still remember
with the dancing eyes and the teasing mouth:
You didn’t teach me anything
But, oh, I learned my lesson

This is Bruce Levens’ 1951 Ford Coupe.  Built by Chad Wick the car is an absolute work of art. The engine is a 1956 Lincoln V8 and it along with other details like one-off gold wheels, custom hood and fender panels, a hand-made dashboard and hand crafted bucket seats covered in Italian leather, all add up to a truly one of a kind custom.  SEMA Show, Las Vegas, NV.

Heartlandians

Ok. This has been a long time coming. The wonderful Heartlandians blog is why I’m here on Tumblr because in my online perusing I kept finding myself directed here time and time again. And, even though I didn’t know how to use Tumblr I could see this was a gold mine of Heartland content/community. 

So, here we are a few years later and I wanted to take this opportunity a) to thank the Heartlandians blog and its following for their amazing community and b) give you some insight into why it’s important to me and the show.

I can finally prove it to you with some data. Since I run the BordenWithoutBorders site I monitor the analytics. All the data that comes in about who is using it, how they got there etc. This is incredibly important information to someone who does my kind of work. 

One of the things I always pay the most attention to is how did they get here. As in, how did they find BWB or a particular blog post? The number 1 referrer is always Facebook. Of course. The CBC site points a lot of people. Google search. More and more are finding it directly as in typing in the URL BordenWithoutBorders.com which is great. And, all of those things makes perfect sense.

But, do you know who is the top referrer following our top social channels where we get millions and millions of reach every week? 

That’s right. This very blog. Heartlandians. It drives the most traffic out of all non-Heartland affiliated sites (and google). Pretty impressive. 

So, thank you. And pat yourselves on the back. This stuff is important not just to people like me. It all adds up to help make Heartland one of the top digital performers in all of Canada. That is very important to CBC when it comes to renewal. 

Poem

Modest is the boy with Hazel eyes,
That his work is nothing but bad,
But you see to me it is surprise,
For his work makes me most glad.

Shy is the girl with gold hair,
That she’s not good enough for love,
But to another she is beautiful and fair,
But they can’t convince her enough.

Kind is the mother who lives alone,
Undeserving of her lovers betrayal,
When her heart sank like a heavy stone,
And became cold,withdrawn and pale.

Sick is the man who leans upon wood,
But he dares not show that to man,
Because he is afraid of the never ending love,
That he will leave when he fails to stand.

Emotions are enemies to us,
They take away things we need,
Like the want to kiss and laugh and hug,
And instead make us weak.

But do not worry my dear old friend,
For the boy,girl,woman and man,
Eventually escaped their worries and doubts,
Just like you and I can.

Newt and the beasties take three

I pretty much love it more every time I see it. I notice more things, think about what it’s trying to say more, just have a richer experience. And it’s just fun. I love it. Things I thought about in particular this time:

1. The MACUSA is paranoid as hell. You enter the British Ministry of Magic and you see (or at least you did pre-DH) a giant gold statue of magical people lording it over creatures. The centerpiece of MACUSA is a dial showing how far away wizarding society is from disaster. Seraphina Picquery mentions the possibility of war almost every time she speaks. They are terrified of Muggles, to the extent–and from what I’ve read this is intentional JKR’s part–that you almost kind of see Grindelwald’s point (aside from the mass slaughter, of course). I find this fascinating in the context of UK history vs American history.

2. Newt. Other people have written about this already, but I just can’t thank JKR enough for giving us another hero who is heroic beause of his heart and his fierce kindness, rather than because he’s a kickass fighter. SO BORED and weary of violent super heros. Newt’s devastation at the loss of his creatures is heartbreaking. He loves them so much. He talks with such sadness about his attempt to save the Sudanese Obscurial girl. And his “They’re not going to kill it” line before going off the try and save Credence. He doesn’t even think twice before throwing himself into danger to help someone in distress (which reminds me of Harry a bit). And yet I don’t think he used a single non-defensive spell the entire film. Maybe he did when he was facing off with Graves/Grindelwald in the subway? Mostly he was trying to protect Credence and shielding himself, though.

3. I think we do actually see Chastity’s body. There’s one body face down when Graves first enters, but Mary Lou’s is on her side. So I think the face down body is Chastity’s.

4. I also find the commentary on American culture made through the execution scene really interesting. And man, that scene is so chilling. The white-coated executioners are so kind. They’re smiling and gentle. They show no signe whatsoever that that they’re taking someone’s life, someone they know on a first name basis. It’s so horrible.

5. Queenie doesn’t take Jacob’s memory with her wand in the rain scene. Her wand is buy holding up the umbrella charm. I looked carefully and she doesn’t. I still think Jacobs gets at least some of them back in the final scene, though.

6. It’s actually really obvious that Credence survives? The camera focuses directly on the little flame which doesn’t so much float out of the wreckage as swim through the air like a little fish. Meaning it looks like it has intent. And Newt 100% sees it and knows.

7. I don’t know how anyone involved in that film can expect the audience not to read the alley scenes between Graves and Credence as sexual. I know what Colin Farell and Ezra said. Nah. Those scenes were blatanly erotic in a really dark way. imo, of course.

MASTERLIST. KO-FI.

You came to a screeching halt as the cool metal shifted to cement behind the soft fabric of your clothes and with an exited yelp you fumbled into a pit of dry debris and cracked flooring. The sizzling sound of Newt riding down the pipes echoed in the dimly lit area. You coughed, accidently inhaling a breath of white dust. You could faintly smell mould and the familiar stench of water from the pipes. Your sides were most definitely bruised. Your spine trembled when something wet slid down your back –it was strangely cold, so your best guess was water. Newt suddenly yelled and you gasped, a body slamming onto your own as your face drew deeper to cobble. Your forehead stung and you hissed, your bones groaning as the boy atop of you lazily opened his eyes.

Keep reading

i’ve been thinking about this art for a long, long, long time and I’ve always assumed that it was a hint about their upcoming marriage but then I started thinking…

what if it’s someone else’s wedding?

what if they’re guests at someone’s wedding?

but who else in this show would be getting married?

and finally after watching episode 10 it’s kind of clear??????

and as much as it breaks my heart to think that JJ is probably going to win gold (bc let’s be real- he’s never shown any indication that he might make any mistakes and his performances are beyond difficult) THERE ARE STILL SO MANY GOOD THINGS ABOUT THIS!!!!

-JJ GETS MARRIED AND MORE THAN LIKELY HE INVITES EVERYONE FROM THE GPF AND EVEN FROM THE CUPS BEFORE THAT

-THAT MEANS PARTY TIME?? ALCOHOL???? YOU CAN BET THERE’S GONNA BE A STRIPPER POLE SOMEWHERE OR CHRISTOPHE WILL HAVE ONE WAITING IN HIS CAR FOR AN ENCORE PERFORMANCE

-YUURI AND VIKTOR WILL HAVE TO TRAIN TOGETHER FOR A WHOLE NEW SEASON AS FIANCES AND GEE WOULDN’T THAT BE A SHAME IF WE HAD TO SPEND A WHOLE SECOND SEASON ON THAT

-YUURI PROBABLY CAUGHT ISABELLA’S BRIDAL BOUQUET AND THAT’S WHAT HE’S HOLDING IN THE PICTURE ABOVE?????

THERE ARE NO ENDINGS TO THIS SHOW THAT COULD POSSIBLY BE ANYTHING OTHER THAN SPECTACULAR AND BEAUTIFUL AND ALL THINGS AMAZING GOD BLESS YUURI ON ICE AND EVERYONE ON THE PRODUCTION TEAM FOR BRINGING ALL THIS JOY TO THE WORLD

ONCE UPON A TIME : the reboot
by drew and menelaos

season 1, episode 10 : The Thing You Love Most

present : While everyone else mourns Graham at his funeral, an upset and restless Emma decides to investigate Regina’s home. She finds Henry’s book of tales in Regina’s dresser, planted there by Mr. Gold, and she begins to read, finding not just simple tales but a complex narrative that reflects everything Henry has been telling her about Storybrooke all along. Emma finally believes the truth and understands her role as the savior. Regina’s previous use of magic proves to have unforeseen repercussions, as it seems to have torn the fabric of the Dark Curse, and Mr. Gold witnesses the citizens of Storybrooke beginning to experience brief flashes of their past identities – and he hurries to bury the Servant’s dagger in the forest before anyone can go looking for it. David, overwhelmed with guilt and confused by the glimpses of his past, decides to end his affair with Mary Margaret and leave town. Just before he reaches the town’s border, David has a memory flash of the kiss that woke Snow White, and his car crashes into the Storybrooke sign.

past : Prince Charming awakens Snow White with true love’s kiss. A handful of years pass, and Regina now lives in exile with her aging mother, a weathered woman named Cora. The former queen has been usurped by her own stepdaughter – a tale for another time – and has watched from afar as Snow White and Charming have married, Luciana and Goldilocks have married, Robin and Marian have married, and happily ever after seems to be overflowing throughout the realm. But Regina reaches a breaking point and receives a visit from a stranger who reminds her of a Dark Curse mentioned long ago by her former magical mentor, the imprisoned imp Rumpelstiltskin, a curse that would alter the very fabric of the Land of Ever and trap everyone in a prison of time in the fabled Land Without Magic. She secretly visits him in the dungeons of Castle Misthaven and demands to know the final ingredient for the Curse. Rumpelstiltskin obliges but only on the condition that he will be provided with a life of luxury in the new land. When Regina concedes, Rumpelstiltskin reveals the sacrifice that must be made: the heart of the thing you love most. Having gone too far down this path to turn back now, Regina finally casts the Dark Curse by killing her own mother.
