we can go to a beach

I think we’re going to the dog beach tomorrow after church! I made sure to get out Pi’s shirt, sun screen, and sun glasses. Also flexi leads for everyone! 

I know everyone hates flexis, but I can control Nalla from a distance verbally. She could be off leash and be fine. She just isn’t allowed off leash at the beach because the sign says so.

I’m super excited and I got Nalla’s water retrieve toy packed for her. :D

CAN’T WAIT. GUYS LOOK AT THIS.

YURIO WITH HIS BIG SITER MILA, HAVING A GOOD TIME AT THE BEACH.

AND THIS…

BOTH VICTOR AND YUURI, DRESSED UP, AS SOMETHING… ADORABLE, I’M SURE. And that little makkachin puppy on Victor’s lap.

NOW, THIS HAS TO BE A “Welcome to the Madness” scene! please let them all go crazy!

We’ve got Team St. Petersburg, AND VICTOR IS THERE, BESIDE YUURI, SO SERIOUS AND READY TO KICK SOME ASS.

Georgi is now part of Free!

AND ALL OUR SKATERS IN A FINAL POSE, I’M DYING HERE.

So YOI is just full of ingenious, subtle and entirely graceful dialogue. No scene is wasted and every conversation, however brief can explain so much with just a few lines. I’d like to take a moment to talk about one of the last scenes in episode 10 when Yurio and Victor are on the beach. In all honesty, I thought about this scene a lot and it took me a little while to really, truly understand what was going on here.

HUMAN POV

“Are you poisonous?”
“Can I try to pick you up?”

“You’re even prettier than legends say.”
“You speak our language surprisingly well.”

“Is it true that you can erase memories with a kiss?”
“Wait! Please don’t leave! I’m not going to hurt you!”
“If I fall in love with you, does that mean I’m into zoophilia?”
“If you could get rid of your tail for legs and feet, would you?”
“So, like… were you hatched from an egg? Or born like a shark?”

youtube

this is my biggest project yet, and after quite some time of work frankensteining together my sketches and jamie hewletts old storyboards, i can show what ive been up to for quite some time now. id appreciate if you guys spread it around as much as you could, what with everything thats been going on with youtubes algorithm and whatnot, animators need all the attention we can get!

 OK BUT GUYS I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE HOW YUURI GOES FROM BEING A BLUSHING MESS BECAUSE OF A SIMPLE TOUCH, TO FULL ON “LET ME WASH YOUR HAIR”. 

THAT’S THE RELATIONSHIP BUILD UP I WANT TO SEE.

And i’ve said this before but in the beach sequence there’s no longer any type of boundaries when it comes to touching, their physical contact now is just another part of their relationship and this is huge because if we see the timeline of events, Yuuri and Victor WILL HAVE A WHOLE LOT MORE MOMENTS TOGETHER, EVEN AFTER THE GRAND COMPETITION. GOING TO FESTIVALS TOGETHER, EATING TOGETHER, DANCING IN THE BEACH, FOOLING AROUND, THEY’LL HAVE TIME FOR ALL OF THAT.

They are both facing the preassure of time, 23 and 27, one is being expected to retire soon, while the other thinks it might be time to do it, and we know “Figure skaters are only competitive for a short time…” But without even realizing it themselves, they will have time to think and face this future together, from this point on they’ll have to take decision thinking in the other and I couldn’t be happier.  

  • Victor: I have very high standards. From the food you eat all the way to the training you get daily. Slaking off is absolutely prohibited.
  • Yuri[on Instagram]: Look at this picture of Hawaii.
  • Victor: we should go there sometime.
  • Yuri: can we take practice off for today?
  • Victor: sure, wanna get some ice cream while we walk by the beach?
  • Yuri: But my diet-
  • Victor: we'll be walking.

Finished my watercolor Lapras for #WorldWaterDay  💦
My obsession with water isn’t just for looks guys, there are so many issues threatening our oceans with the worst being pollution. However, we can do our part by recycling every day and participating in beach and park cleanup activities.
If we don’t have a drop of clean water left on this planet, then what point is there?
Please do your part to help keep our waters clean!!✍🏽🌊💙💧
We can make a difference guys!

I always make fun of my province, New Brunswick, because it’s small, boring, there are no job and everything is going out of business. But what NB does have is amazing scenery! This was shot at an old defunct park in the north of the province. We got together with a photographer friend and trekked down to the beach in frigid weather and brutal wind for some cool shots! And boy was it ever worth it!!

Ps there was nobody flipping capes and whatnot, that was all the wind’s work! So you can probably imagine how thrilled I am about the 5th pic ahah

Guys think about this

Remember the scene on the beach when Victor was trying to figure out what his relationship as a coach was supposed to mean with Yuri? 

And remember how the first thing he offered was to be a father figure?

Based on most of Victor’s interaction with Yuri as a coach thus far, we can see that he’s going by experience with his own coaches, wondering how Yakov would react in certain situations and admitting that he’s really not experienced with this side of the skating world. 

So if you want to go into it from that point of view, Victor’s instinct is to offer to Yuri the same role that his coaches had offered to him; a father figure. 

This leads me to believe that Victor has been either fatherless or at least an outsider within his family since a young age. Father figures as coaches generally start when athletes are younger, and you can see how this would make sense with Yakov in the scene where Yuri pokes Victor in the head. The Russian coaches words “You still have a lot to learn Vitya” were laced with sympathy and had a softness to them that we don’t generally see from this character.

And so while we don’t have a background for Victor at all, I’m fairly certain that this could play a part in it, if not a major one.

Safety Tips For Tourists In Australia

(all of which are based on things I see tourists doing every single year. You frighten us. Seriously. We know you haven’t been taught any better, so this is an attempt to help)

  • I know not everyone is swimming between the flags at the beach. I know. It’s because locals know what a rip looks like, know where all the rocks are, and know when the tide is going in or out. And you know what? We still find ourselves in trouble. But we’re all usually experienced enough that we can stay afloat on the rare occasions we actually need rescuing, and everyone knows you’re an idiot and calls you such when you get out. You do not, and you’re also in the way of surfers (surfboards, by the way, do not have brakes). Stay between the flags.
  • Watch your children at the rockpools. Seriously. Tell them that looking is fine, but under no circumstances are they to put their hand in the water, and they DEFINITELY shouldn’t try to pick anything up. If you’re driving home from the beach and your kid (or anyone) is unusually tired, GET THEM TO A HOSPITAL IMMEDIATELY. They may have been bitten by a blue-ringed octopus, in which case they’ll need emergency treatment.
  • Those blue jellyfish-like things that wash up on the beach? They’re a Portuguese Man O’ War, or bluebottle. They’re not dead – just stuck until the tide comes back. Don’t touch them – their sting HURTS. Hot water helps. You shouldn’t need a doctor, but it won’t hurt to get it checked out if you think you’re having an allergic reaction. Also, don’t pop the tops of the little guys – that’s just cruel.
  • Similarly, don’t stomp on the little molluscs and things growing on the rocks. I’ve seen so many kids make a game of this. They’re not dangerous, but they are living creatures. (Also, don’t walk near them barefoot. Trust me - I’ve made that mistake myself)
  • It’s recently been brought to my attention that other countries don’t have this, so I’ll add it here – if you hear a continuous horn/beep/siren at the beach, that’s a shark alarm. It’s a good idea to get out of the water at that point.
  • The size or hairiness of a spider has nothing to do with how venomous it is. See: huntsman spider vs. redback spider.
  • If it’s summer, wear sunscreen. I don’t care if it’s overcast. Skin cancer is one of the biggest killers here, and that’s for people who are used to our sunlight. Not to mention that it IS possible to get so sunburnt that you can’t even wear a shirt. I remember attendance at my school dropped 50% after one carnival because no-one could get their uniform on.

Feel free to add more in reblogs! I will be doing so as I think of them.
