well not really an animation

i had this friend. loud, vivacious, and brimming with energy and colour. her sun-bright smile drew others to her like moths to flame; and yet she could always pick me out from the crowd effortlessly. i wondered how she did that, why she’d pick me over many. 

she was the kind of person you could never look away from for long, but i saw her better from my peripherals. when she lifted her chin, her face would become awash with glowing light; and then she’d laugh about her pale skin, and the ruddy cheeks and dark freckles would appear again, as if they’d momentarily blanked out. when she grew protective, her blue eyes would spark dangerously and burn white; and then she’d blink, and the glint of her glasses would stand in with explanation. 

but i saw her best from the back. when she’d run, her fire-bright curls would flare out behind her like wings.

as flighty as she was, she always came back to me. i wondered why. 

she told me, once. 

one day, before class had started, when i was in the middle of falling asleep in the sunbeam warming my desk, she turned around in her seat to talk to me. she spoke with her whole body, from her waving hands to her bouncing shoulders. 

then she petered off, and settled into stillness. watchfulness. despite all the eyes on her, she only saw me. 

“hey,” she said. “could you look at me for a sec?” 

and when i lifted my head to look at her straight on, she smiled as if she’d found the answer. 

“look at that,” she murmured. “your eyes have halos in them too.”

Why Yuri is Great (and not just because it’s gay)

1. The story is really good.  You’re seeing a character (Yuri) who is really struggling with self worth, confidence and skill in the first episode and to overcome this and attempt a comeback within one season of Figure Skating competition. It is compelling. Both my 63 year old father and 7 year old kid are sold on this story just as much as my 32 year old self.

2. The characters are really good All the characters have depth. Yuri especially has great character development but Victor does as well and so does Yuri’s main Rival (also named Yuri) who I thought I would hate but I love him. Even though I want Main character Yuri to win in the end I still really like other Yuri as well. That is I think a great accomplishment.

3. The animation is really good Now it’s not perfect and there are certainly times when I think it could be a bit better but on the whole I think the quality is high. Even down to the reflection in the ice when they skate.  It feels like a lot of time was put into it.

4. The music is really good Seriously the music adds so much to the show. 

5. It’s gay as hell By this I mean it’s not like Yaoi. The relationship between the two main characters isn’t exploitative or for purely for titillation. It’s a real romance.  The moments that have the fanbase screaming about how beautifully gay it is are grounded in genuine moments of character development and story building. These are human, romantic moments between the characters. Yes there is fanservice naked butt shots but it’s not all the time. 

There isn’t really any jokes about it either (other then the fact that even the background characters are clearly going “These guys are in a relationship”) 

Yuri on Ice is un-apologetically and openly gay. It is one of the gayest things I have ever seen and so far it doesn’t seem like anyone is going to die and it’s so awesomely open about it. 


You should watch it because it’s awesome

I have finally joined Voltron hell.

anonymous asked:

Hallo! I have a question about your Gravity Falls Never Human Au. How many eyes can a fae get/open (is there a limit?).

They start with

two sights…

to gain more you’ll have to…well, devour other ones

the higher amount of sights, the stronger the Fae is

be wary of the one in the Deep..

the One with Many Sights

so anon, there's no actual limit, depends on the Fae.

Hopefully Tumblr won’t fuck this up

I’m still not over yesterday lmao, I’m so glad they’re okay again! I am a bit salty at the lack of dialogue- I was looking forward to the awkward (?), but anyways that’s that and now everyone’s happy and it’s all I ask for ; v ;/ 

I also realized that all my animations on tumblr follow the awkward HS theme for some reason lmao (x)(x)
