trade mistakes // panic! at the disco

I’d like to follow more people!

My dash has a lot of multi-fandom stuff (which is cool), but is kinda lacking in gaming content (mostly non-mass effect stuff).

So if you mostly post these games, or are a gaming blog, then please reblog or like this post and I’ll check out your blog. 😄

(Most interested in are bolded)

  • Mass Effect
  • Dragon Age
  • Final Fantasy
  • Kingdom Hearts
  • Silent Hill
  • Resident Evil
  • Bioshock
  • Tomb Raider
  • Elder Scrolls
  • Bioware games
  • Knights of the Old Republic
  • Nintendo games like Zelda, Pikmin, Kirby, Paper Mario, Pokemon etc.

Thanks! Signal boosts appreciated 🦄

carry on, darling, we were built to last 

“Yuuri, Yuuri, look what I found!”

Victor’s excited voice made Yuuri pause the reading of some Russian magazine he was using to practice his Cyrillic on. They were huddled under a blanket together, Yuuri’s head on Victor’s shoulder and Victor’s arm wrapped around him, while Makkachin napped on the other side of the couch. It was comfortable and lazy, and nice, until Victor’s voice made them all twitch back into awareness.

Before Yuuri could react in any way, Victor was pushing his phone in his face.

“Look, look! We should do this together, it’ll be so much fun!”

Yuuri squinted at the screen until he could read the bold letters of the title.

“Victor Nikiforov trivia? Are you serious?”

“Scared you’re going to lose?” Victor teased with a grin, and Yuuri could immediately feel his devoted fan side rear up at the challenge.

“Oh, you’re on,” he shot back, knowing rather well that there was no question about Victor he couldn’t answer. Victor himself might prove to be a fearsome opponent, after all he was Victor Nikiforov, and who could know more about him other than himself, yet somehow Yuuri knew he wouldn’t lose. Not at this.  So, confident, he added: “We should make a bet before we start.”

“Oh, I like the way you think, Yuuri!”

Victor’s eyes shone bright and Yuuri couldn’t keep a smile off his face at seeing him this excited. It would be almost worth losing to him. Almost. He wasn’t that gracious.

“Should we just agree to name the prize after one of us wins?” Victor asked, thoughtful, and Yuuri easily agreed.

“Whoever wins can make the other do one thing, deal?”

“Deal.”

Victor’s grin sharpened and then he pushed the start button. The first question loaded and Yuuri almost groaned at how easy it was. What is Victor Nikiforov’s most significant jump?

“Oh, come on, this isn’t a challenge at all! Everyone knows this.”

“True,” Victor nodded. “Let’s hope all the questions aren’t like this.”

They were right to hope, because the farther in the quiz they got, the more complicated the questions became. And the more Yuuri could show off.

What is Victor Nikiforov’s favourite sweet?” Victor read the question and Yuuri immediately answered, “Chocolate.”

“Huh?” Victor blinked at him, slightly confused. “I don’t really like chocolate that much? You know that. If I had to pick I’d say apple pie? Maybe?”

“You and your apples,” Yuuri smiled fondly. It was overall funny how the Internet clung to things that were not necessarily confirmed. And as Yuuri found out, they rarely had anything to do with the truth. Like Victor liking chocolate, when in fact he would die for apple-flavoured anything. “But chocolate is the correct answer. Check for yourself.”

Victor did and as it turned out, Yuuri was right.

“How…?” Victor asked, utterly bewildered.

“There was this one interview after you won your last Junior title and you kept eating chocolates instead of answering questions. That’s where it came from. It’s quite silly, honestly, but I have to admit I was a bit surprised when I realized you don’t like chocolate. We’ve all been lied to.”

Victor simply looked at him with his mouth hanging open. “I don’t even remember that interview.”

“It’s a fan’s job to know these things,” Yuuri offered him a cheeky grin. And then added, “At the rate we’re going, you should probably start to prepare yourself for what I have planned for you when you lose.”

“Not fair, Yuuri!” Victor protested. “If that’s how you’re going to play then we’ll do a Yuuri Katsuki trivia later and divide the score in two!”

Pretty certain that he still had it in the bag, Yuuri agreed. An hour later they were going head to head, with Yuuri having won the Victor trivia and Victor kicking his ass left and right at his own.

“Okay, last question,” Victor said. “According to Yuuri Katsuki’s post Grand Prix Final 2016 interview, Victor Nikiforov is…” Victor read, lips curling up a little, and Yuuri couldn’t help his own smile at how cute it made him look. “…a) his inspiration, b) his soulmate, c) his most beloved fiancé, or d) the love of his life.”

Yuuri scoffed. “How about e) all of the above?”

“I don’t think it works that way, love,” Victor chuckled.

“But it’s true.” Yuuri shrugged with one shoulder since the other was pressed against Victor’s side. “I don’t really remember what I say in interviews, you know that, but no matter which one you pick it is going to be the right one for me. Even if it’s not exactly what they want to hear.”

Victor smiled down at him sweetly. “Your soulmate, too?”

Yuuri flushed, only a little embarrassed and mostly just pleased at how happy Victor seemed to be. He did not look away from Victor, just stretched up and pressed his lips to his clean-shaven jaw.

“So what if I think that?” he asked, snuggling into him.

Victor’s soft laugh was a delightful puff of warm breath against his forehead and Yuuri closed his eyes to enjoy the moment.

“I think I like that option best as well,” Victor admitted.

“Should we see which one is the correct one then?”

Victor hummed, resting his cheek on Yuuri’s head, while Yuuri wrapped his free arm around him. Victor stroked the length of it in slow motions, gentle, lazy, adoring.

“Do we really care which one it is?”

Yuuri smiled into Victor’s collarbone. “Didn’t you want to win?”

“I think we’re both winners in this game anyway, don’t you?”

It was Yuuri’s turn to hum, and once he had, Victor turned his face up with a finger and dipped down to steal a kiss, which Yuuri gladly gave and greedily turned up for one more before he smiled. Because no matter what the quizzes said they were the true winners – in life and love, both.

Discourse Callout Post: Freshman Ford/Lardo

I love you guys, I love this fandom, but I have some nits to pick, some grievances to air, and some words to yell.

I dated my first boyfriend when I was 18 and he was 22. That relationship didn’t work but for a whole host of reasons that aren’t Weird Problematic Age-Gap. I dated my second boyfriend a few months later, again at ages 18 and 22, and that lasted a good six years or so and we were pretty happy.

Freshman/Senior has issues to overcome but is not Problematic. And yet I see people doing like… CALLOUTS? PSAs? about how you should Not Ship Ford and Lardo in this dynamic. You know what’s got just as many issues as that? Dating someone you used to actively hate (Dex/Nursey) or someone who used to bully you (Zimbits which we are literally all here for).

This fandom is a desert of femslash, and femslash shippers have been wandering for forty years trying to find their promised land, and they have finally found an oasis. Let them ship, let them figure out their mistakes, let them navigate the oceans, and spare them from hypercriticism - and spare my personal romantic history from your weird discourse.
