Little Deuce Coupe

I have driving headcanons.

-Yuuri is an incredibly conscientious and also frustrated driver. That twenty minutes of traffic? He could’ve done attempts #3027-#3030 of his quadruple salchow in that time. Why is the man in the car next to him looking directly at Yuuri and honking his horn while winking? Why is the woman in the car to his right applying makeup and occasionally fluttering her eyelashes at him? Yuuri will never know. Americans are strange. Cars are far more enjoyable, he thinks, when you’re in the backseat of one with your fiance.

-When he gets the chance to drive, Guang-Hong likes to reenact The Fast and the Furious, to the horror of his coach– he has a whole soundtrack to go along with it, thanks to a certain American. Leo’s tinkered with the speaker system in his refurbished, classic car until the bassline can vibrate the entire metal frame.

-Viktor is a fairly laid back driver, who whips around corners with a delighted smile and never obeys the speed limit, at least when he’s in Russia. Living Legends don’t get tickets. But when he has road rage– oh, Viktor has road rage. A month or two before their wedding they take a road trip (Viktor’s going to be in a small space!!! With Yuuri!!! For several hours straight!!!) and a red sportscar cuts Viktor off, weaving dangerously close to Yuuri’s door, before flipping both of them off. “Take a picture of their license plate,” Viktor says calmly, and steps on the gas. Twenty minutes and several wrong turns later, they are not at their destination. They are in a mall parking lot. “Do you know,” Viktor hums cheerfully, “how a man like that is going to park?” The red sportscar sits at the far edge, across two spaces that aren’t supposed to be spaces. Viktor legally parks opposite him, and boxes the red car in. For evidence, he takes five pictures on his phone, writes a note he won’t let Yuuri read before dropping it on the windshield. “Do you want to see a movie? Oh, this one is only three and a half hours long. You get the tickets while I make a phone call?” After making out for 3.5 hours like two teenagers on a first date, they come back to the red sportscar being towed. “Oops,” says Viktor. Yuuri wishes he was surprised.

-Yurio hates driving. Like hell is he going to trust a bunch of strangers in metal death machines. A system that gives Viktor Nikiforov a license is not a system Yuri believes in. “Get on my motorcycle,” says Otabek, and despite himself Yuri does. When they rev up to 45mph (the Kazakh obeys road laws), Yurio could be flying. “This is awesome!” He yells in Otabek’s ear, but it’s lost to the wind.

-Phichit drives an red Volkswagon Beetle, which he has nicknamed Tata. Every time he has a passenger, he forces them to play Carpool Karaoke or his own version of Cash Cab. “Oh no,” Phichit chirps when he sees the congested highway. Yuuri sighs. The car is at a standstill, which means it’s perfectly safe for Phichit to check his phone. “I hate traffic!” He says, or more accurately, tweets. Phichit, Yuuri thinks, is the sole person that enjoys traffic.

Dear Mom -
There’s not a day that goes by that I’m not thinking about you, and missing you.
That fact that you’re not with us still doesn’t feel real to be quite honest.
I’m not much of a writer, so I’m relying on my other strengths to express my love and gratitude this Mother’s Day.

Beach life was definitely the life for you, so I dedicate this animated loop to you.
It’s a mix of things I’m pretty sure you loved (Ocean Drive in Miami Beach; your old Volkswagen Beetle), and things I know I love (pixel art, some 80s aesthetic).

Love you always <3

Buggy Still Fun

Despite all the power that a huge 4x4 truck like a RamRunner can provide, sometimes a little Buggy is all you need to have some fun in the desert. The engines are in the back, they’re aircooled, and for the most part simple, so what could go wrong?

This cafe is highkey based off of my towns ice cream parlor, as is basically everything in this since I’m highkey basing this town off mine. Oopsie.

Enjoy!!!


Rushing out of class at the sound of the bell, you held your bag close as you swerved through the throng of people in the halls. If you didn’t hurry, you’d miss your shift and dear god you didn’t want to get there right during rush hour.

Some of my film shots of an abandoned VW bug in Chincoteague VA that is pretty much the greatest thing I’ve ever come across while urbexing.
