This is another small moment I really like. When Yuri makes a mistake, Victor reacts very negatively but then shakes himself and goes back to being stoic.
Considering Yuri had just earlier been very uncertain about his own performance and stated that he needed Victor to have faith him, to me what happened here is Victor telling himself a) to not show any outward negative body language to not impact Yuri should he glance Victor’s way and b) to have faith in Yuri and thus not act so pessimistic over one small mistake.
He paid attention to what Yuri needed and wanted, and adjusted to it.
Talking to a reporter in 2013, kidnapping victim and rape survivor Elizabeth Smart recollects the conversation she had with her abductor shortly after he led her into the hills behind her family’s home.
At just 14 years old, Elizabethwas abducted from her Utah home one night in 2002 after a man broke in and forced her out of bed. The intruder warned her that if she attempted to make a noise, he would kill her family while they slept. Not wanting to endanger her loved ones, Elizabeth bravely followed his instructions and was led out of the house at knife point. They then walked through the hills behind the home and into dense woodland, and it was during this time that Elizabeth came to recognise her captor. Just months prior to her kidnap, Elizabeth and her mum had given $5 to this man after they saw him begging on the streets, and they even offered him some work. His name was Brian David Mitchell.
Mitchell took her to a temporary camp built deep into the woods, which is where she met his co-conspirator for the first time: Wanda Ileen Barzee. Elizabeth was led into a tent, where Mitchell began performing a wedding ceremony and announced that the young girl was now his wife. Proceeding this, he pushed her onto the ground and raped her. For the next 9 months until her discovery, Elizabeth was moved across the country while being starved, raped and forced to consume illicit substances on what she described as an almost daily basis.
In March 2003, after convincing her captors to return to Utah, Elizabeth Smart was finally rescued. She had even persuaded her captors to hitch-hike in the hopes that somebody would recognise her as a missing person. One citizen did recognise Mitchell and Barzee suspiciously escorting a young child dressed in robes and a veil. Police immediately responded to the call, and the kidnappers were caught and subsequently arrested. Brian Mitchell, now 63 years old, spent 6 six years in a psychiatric institution and is now serving a life sentence as a federal prisoner. Wanda Barzee, now 70 years old, was given 15 years for her involvement.
So here it goes for me about 2.10 and Sanvers : we’ve all established that there was not much about Sanvers BUT what we’ve seen was pretty great nonetheless. Their little bets are absolutely everything I want to see about their relationship : inside (AND MULTIPLE) jokes, intimacy, laughs, companionship, beautiful complicity. The fact that they are able to work alongside each other on the field and maintain a coupl-y kind of relationship without saying too much or be near one another physically shows me how much they understand each other on that matter. Like “Ok babe we’re working now but can I just say by making jokes how much I love you this ?” Not to mention the fact that their bet is about where they’re gonna spend the night. They’re at that place now : I wanna spend as much nights with you as we can because I can’t get enough of you. Plus the way they are SO competitive with each other gotta be the most canon thing of all, I mean of course they are gonna place bets on everything, even the smallest of things on a daily basis. It’s not the first time they did that, it shows how much they’re alike and I loved this, I abso-bloody-lutely loved this kind of intimacy. It was just a glance of how they behave around each other, teasing, banter and all, but boy even if it was ridiculously a short amount of time screen it was perfect and fun. Which leads me to their second and last scene : ARE THEY ALREADY MARRIED OR WHAT ? God I loved every second of it. The fact that Maggie is at the DEO (do they let her in and out that easily now ? Why was she there in the first place if not to flirt with her gf ? I MEAN THERE IS NO OTHER EXPLANATION RATHER THAN BEING WITH ALEX) and waits for them to be alone to tease Alex about yet another bet. Now that we know Maggie is soon going to be introduced to the gang (2.12) I think Alex is not completely out at the DEO yet and that explains this adorable shoulder bumps (AND THE LEGS SYNC HOW GAY THAT SHIT WAS?), with that Alex is simply saying “I’m not ignoring you at my work place, I love having you around here, let me put my body against yours discretely so that I can show you just that, just how much I can’t wait to lose anymore bets”. I just love how their relationship is now established and we get to see this on tv every week now. And now I’m only waiting for Winn to glance at Alex like “OH-kay so you were into that Maggie person !” with a huge smile on his face because he’s so happy for his big sister.
Yes, I honestly just giffed this bit because I love how Magnus’ gaze flits down at the end here. It looks to me like he is eyeing Alec’s lips.
I desperately want to see Magnus taking some initiative in 2b now that the “I love you,”’s have come out. :)
(Go ahead, Magnus. Just plant one on him. We know you want to. :D)
Had to repost, because I was stupid —I was trying to make soothe my cat (whilst making sure he didn’t vomit on my shoes) as well as doing something on my iPod; as it turns out I can’t multitask those things— and accidentally deleted the post when I meant to hit ‘edit’ instead. (I don’t even remember what I was editing it for.)
Thanks to the wonderful @queendavethegreat for helping me relocate the post. (and for reblogging it in the first place. *hugs)
I just want to thank all of you for spreading my post like wildfire. You have no idea how much faith has restored in me from all the good people in this fandom.
You all are the fucking best. You really are. Excluding the assholes that have potentially lost my respect, you TRUE Eddheads out there are fucking amazing. Even people who aren’t even familiar with Eddsworld are helping out, and that its just wonderful.
Now, we can all make one simple change just to make things better in the gaping wound of this fandom. It’s 5 simple steps, and I hope you guys can come to an agreement.
1. Replace current shiptags or character names to something not predictable in a simple websearch. This means do not include the full real life names of the cast as their counterparts, the whole purpose of an AU to begin with is to be as close to unoriginal from the Canon universe as possible.
Note: Under Data Protection laws in Europe and the USA, it is absolutely illegal to use full information of any persons full name, date of birth, place of residence etc. dead or alive, in any database website or even on places like Tumblr without their legal permission. So please do not use ACTUAL REAL LIFE peoples full names intentionally if you want to avoid even bigger trouble. As it can count towards an actual criminal offense if things get serious. Simply falsifying Patricks name and birthday can really damage his career as a whole (Please refer to his Tumblr post.)
2. Keep everything NSFW of any ship in the #sw #sinsworld tag or keep them for your personal eyes only. Do not let a single source of it escape the safe abode of the tag provided for said NSFW art.
3. DO NOT SEND NSFW OR EVEN SFW EDDSWORLD FANART TO PAUL, PATRICK OR TOM. They have made it genuinely clear that they do not feel comfortable with the fandom. Unless we shapen up and grow up, they will continue to reject and block anyone sending this kind of art. That includes Matt too, he is also not interested.
4. If you see any form of harrassment within the Eddsworld community, including the creators, please report them and be a reasonable human being. Harrassment is not a joke, and telling the perpetrators to “KYS” isn’t mature either. Be mature, firm and professional, and take actual methods of action to prevent further drama from happening. The last thing we want is to lose Matt because of the scum side of the fandom. Protect Matt. Protect the ginger smiling bean.
5. STICK TOGETHER! As a fandom, we are a community, majority, minority and a temple of inspiration and creativity. Use and don’t abuse that creativity…What would Edd do if he was here today? I bet he would zoom in and silence us within the click of a mouse just to keep the peace!
So lets do that for him! Lets all love and respect eachother and the creators for keeping his world spinning. Let’s take care of his world, just like taking care of the real world. If we can all just integrate, we can all agree to disagree and vice versa!
Thanks again for your support.
