well this was fun!!!!!

Okay, I'm still super happy, but I'm also confused/worried about that last interaction between Yurio and Victor. Wth was going on? Both of them were being way too aggressive and I have no idea why (we've never seen Victor act that way before, even in situations that should have made him angry)

It was super confronting to see Viktor lose his temper like that, and i’m not 100% sure what set him off? Like sure Yurio was being a pissy brat about winning the GPF and degrading Yuuri, but he’s always like that. Maybe a little more so this ep because of some underlying nerves about the GPF, and a desperate need to prove himself.

My only guess is that Viktor also had a lot of hidden anxiety surrounding the GPF and Yuuri’s well-being, and his day before coming across Yurio had been so fun and the first time he would’ve relaxed a little and spent non-training related time with Yuuri. And then Yurio comes along with The Attitude and he’s just done? And of course Yurio is one to fight fire with fire and riles Viktor up, but then Viktor remembers he’s dealing with a kid here and drops it. In any case, i think all the characters are packing a lot of tension rn.

Seeing him again, after, what, twenty-five years?, was as uncomfortable as Jagged could possibly imagine. Writing songs about ex-lovers tends to do that.

Jagged didn’t want to see him, he didn’t want to look at his stupid face, or discuss what they had been up to since the early nineties, or talk about that particular album, or the Adele Agreste thing, or—

Where to go for an easy hike in Whistler, BC, Canada? Ancient Cedars Trail

It is about a 2hr roundtrip hike. I seriously wouldn’t even call it a hike. You walk uphill for maybe around 30 mins at a steady incline and then it’s flat. Very educational walk as well, with all the little posts explaining the surrounding wildlife.

If someone one wants to create a character with the intention of causing harm (politely trying to say make a serial killer) can you list some who've made a mark in history in their methods of killing and evading the police and such? And for fun who do you consider interesting killers in history?

Hey there @heartoffawn, you’ll have the pleasure of reading Sherls fangirl about serial killers. 

The three serial killers that immediately jump to my mind are Paul Bernardo, Robert Pickton, and Ed Gein (but that may just be my Canadian bias coming out) in terms of making a mark in history. I’ll give you the highlights of each career and echoes of them seen today. 

Bernardo: So this SOB started out his career not as a murderer but as a rapist(you’ll see a theme if you learn enough about serial killers). He was, for a while, nicknamed the Scarborough rapist, and would ambush women as they got off of TTC buses late at night. As a side note, Toronto now has a request stop program at night time because of him, essentially they will let you off between stops so you’re closer to home. What’s terrible here is police had Bernardo in for questioning, but let him go because he was so sincere sounding. He then escalated to kidnapping, rape and murder with the aid of his wife Karla Homolka. It’s a messy bit from here, but honestly the Wikipedia article on this guy will give you more than enough serial killer fuel, without even having to look at the other two. The highlight being the rape and murder of Homolka’s sister in a twisted birthday present type thing.This case also revolutionized how serial killers were tried in Canada, and how evidence collection is handled (his wife got off on what is the biggest technicality of history). 

Pickton: This guy holds a special place in my heart, as one of the most interesting and lucky serial killers out there. In essence, he was only caught because a sharp-eyed policeman noticed an inhaler with a missing woman’s name on it in Piketon’s living room while the police where there on an unrelated weapons call. Pickton was a drug dealer of sorts, and would rape and murder prostitutes that came to his farm looking for drugs. He would then dismember their corpses, and either fed them to the few pigs on his farm, and also buried the chopped up remains on his property. He went on doing this for almost 5 years, and even admitted to a friend once that the diner they had shared had contained human meat, but the police didn’t believe this friend because he was a known drug addict. This guy is Canada’s worst and yet least well known serial killer. I find him interesting purely because of how many times police were called to this mans property, yet never suspected him or found any signs of murder.   

Gein: If you have seen the Hannibal movies (Watson’s note: She really enjoys NCB’s Hannibal and would really recommend it, even if there is not a lot of forensic focus, the characters are super interesting), and know of the character Buffalo Bill, this man is the inspiration for that character. Gein was only ever convicted for 2 murders, but he confessed to over 50. He was known to have taken great pleasure in consuming human flesh, and also turned human skin into leather to make wastebaskets, seat covers for chairs, and a lampshade to name a few. The house he lived in is now a tourist attraction, and I am fairly certain you can see some of his creations there as well. So that covers most interesting, and some influential serial killers. 

In terms of evasion, I am sure you have heard of both the Zodiac killer, and the first ever serial killer Jack the Ripper. These two are interesting in that both actively taunted police with hints about future crimes, and by killing in fairly public place. As far as we know, neither was caught, but it is more than likely they were imprisoned for unrelated crimes, since they stopped so suddenly.

I really hope this helps, I thought I would give you some lesser well known serial killers to consider, since Dahmer and Bundy get so much love from TV already.

okay friends, tis the season to be giving, and i’ve got a project that i hope you all will join me in giving to several local new york institutions that would really appreciate a donation, especially in the incoming months.

so you need to buy a gift for your friend but you also want to give to an organization this holiday season. well, i’ve made these 6 fun tee shirts, each linked to a specific local charity that i feel relates to the character. buy a tee shirt, and whatever money doesn’t go to redbubble will go to the associated charity. christmas donations MUST be placed by the 15th, as that is when the artist “pay day” is. the charity is still in place after december 15th- however, know that purchases made after that date will not be able to be donated until after January 15th, when the cycle begins anew.***

***APPARENTLY red bubble will allow you to take the money early, so hopefully if i pay a small fee on December 24th, I will be able to also make donations on Christmas Eve! However, if this doesn’t work, January 15th will be the next donation date (and then Feb 15, and so on.) And also, you will still get the tee shirt in time, but that’s on Redbubble more than anything.

so how does this work? after all, i’m just one person and as such none of these tee shirts are officially affiliated with the charity. i understand full well why you’d be skeptical. here’s a couple fun steps that are going to be taken:

1. when you order an item, i get your name and email- I will personally email you with the item you ordered, when you ordered it, what charity it goes to, and when that money will be donated.

2. when payment is received on the 15th, i will be moving the funds into a specific account made for donation money- i can’t touch that fund for everyday purchases, and so don’t worry that your money will be spent whenever i use my debit card. also, the intent is for this account to have $0 dollars in it at the end of the donation period, or $10 of my own money if that’s needed to keep the separate account open.

3. when the donation is made in YOUR NAME*, i will send you a screenshot of the charity page having received your donation. I will also send you a confirmation email from the site, or forward it to your account from my personal email, depending on your preference.

and you may be saying to yourself, rachel, i’d really just prefer to give to charity, and to that i say, have at it! here are the links to donate to each respective organization.

• kendra’s tee shirt goes to the lower east side girls’ club. donate here.

• laurel’s tee shirt goes to the child center of new york. donate here.

• cisco’s tee shirt goes to the ali forney center for homeless lgbt youth. donate here.

• len’s tee shirt goes to big brothers big sisters nyc. donate here.

• the flash rogues tee shirt goes to the bowery mission. donate here.

• iris’ tee shirt goes to literacy partners. donate here.

* don’t want the donation in your name? shoot me an email or add a note with the order. 

** Have an idea for a character and a charity in your area that could really use some help? DM me by december 9th and i will add it to the roster. keep in mind that it will be a last minute addition in time for the holidays, but will hopefully have gained traction by the january pay date! 

I have a lot of fond memories of the DOS version of The Lion King. It was just one of those games I’d play for hours, start to finish, and I’d have an amazing time.

Looking back, I kind of wonder how I actually did that because this game is hard. Not so much because of actual difficulty but more due to the incredibly confusing and unresponsive controls. 

I’d think I’d made a jump successfully or navigated some kind of obstacle only to immediately die and wonder what exactly I did wrong, only for my jump or whatever to be a single pixel off and therefor unacceptable. But I think that’s just a very common part of these older platformers. 

And that’s honestly my only real issue with the game. Other than that? This game is a pretty faithful Lion King experience. The visuals are gorgeous and still hold up pretty well. The game is bright, colourful and offers a fun trip through locations from the movie. And… Locations that were never in the movie but I suppose they had to do something to make the game playable. 

The game starts at the very beginning, playing a young Simba traveling through the Pride Lands and various levels with the occasional mix-up in gameplay, like riding what I assume is some kind of ostrich or evading the buffalo stampede. Were they buffalo?? I don’t know a lot about African animals. 

Though the levels where things are mixed up is often the levels where the controls fall flat as it becomes confusing due to perspective and control changes that don’t respond as they should. But the basic platforming levels are great, if simplistic. Though given this is a game for kids that can be forgiven. 

Both young and old Simba have their own move sets, young Simba can only pounce and give off a pathetic roar while older Simba has a powerful claw swipe and a much bigger roar. Which you’d expect. 

The game is honestly a lot of fun and a pretty neat big cat experience. Also the tiny little roars of young Simba are super cute.

Like your analysis of the HC winter Tr. If it helps, think Elinor's burgundy dress & coat are hanging behind Serena when she shouts at Jas. Agree that its probably same ep as the crying face. I do think that the devastation on her face indicates its after the crash. Also agree she shouldn't be in work, but maybe she's just using the office, or, as when her mum died, working when she shouldn't be. Might explain screaming a bit unprofessionally. The hug could be before, unrelated 2 crash?

Hello Nonny!!! Thanks for stopping by and with theories too.  It’s such fun isn’t it?  Time well wasted.  I am trash and regret nothing.  Interesting idea about Elinor’s coat but I shall have to respectfully disagree with you on that. As you can see from this little gem it was very hard to find a shot of Elinor where her face didn’t look like a smacked arse I’m sorry Serena this was the best I could do Elinor’s coat is a different colour and has a different collar than the one hanging in Serena’s office during her Jasmine-dressing-down scene.

It’s one of her winter coats that she often pairs with her Fluffly Head Holder™. Also one of her signature scarves is hanging with it. It seems like Elinor’s red dress as the colour bleeds into dark burgundy at the bottom

A close-up Yes I know I’m ill and should be running instead of cropping Serena out of her own shots and focusing on her garments

You’ll see her in all her splendour here with Ric in said coat.  Also she tends to wear this little number with the Fluffy Head Holder™ in the winter so the timeline is spot on.

Having said all of that I am perfectly willing to admit that I could be most definitely utterly wrong with my wild speculatin’ off base with my theory that Jas’s dressing down comes before the Jason Elinor Serena Crash Trifecta but I don’t think I’m wrong about the coat.

Given that this could be actual footage of how the Holby Production Team decides to splice the trailers together………


 …The HUG™ could very well be before the crash but given the definitive ‘twittery spoilery’ evidence to the contrary I’m going to go out on a limb and say that I’d be willing to bet an entire vat of Serena’s best shiraz that the glorious hug won’t show up on our screens until February.

Odd liar.

A victuuri thingy based on @aina-p‘s AU post. Warning, this is awfully written but I was in a rush to finish this out of excitement. Does this story have a sequel? Maybe, maybe not.


Yuri was, to be fair, quite young when he started skating. And he did it mostly because he thought Yuko was cute, and she liked skating, so of course he had to find a way to impress her with that. He wasn’t exactly talented, but there was no denying that he had potential and talented or not, he was good at it; and he had fun doing it, which was important as well.

So years after his first time on ice, Yuri was now a skating teacher alongside Yuko and her husband Nishigori, and while teaching wasn’t as fun as skating on his own, he had no reason to complain. He was helping others and making some money in the process.

It was weird to have older students; Yuri was pretty used to deal with kids and on rare occasions, teenagers.

Not only the man that crossed the front door was older but he was also not Japanese. And he was undeniably attractive. With his silver hair, piercing blue eyes and cared figure he was drawing all the attention from people all around regardless of their gender. Yuko was obviously impressed when he approached her at the front table.

If you could rewrite Zetsobou, how would you go about it?

Make Ko a time looper, make Ko a time looper.

…Okay, fiiiine, I get this question so often I might as well actually answer it despite my previous pledge, you guys are no fun.

I guess I have to answer with a question first, too, am I required to keep it close to what DR3 ended up being, just changing some things around? I’ll try that, it sounds harder.

Basically, I think I’d make Yukizome’s role in the story a lot like Ryouko’s in DR0; Ryouko is technically at the center of the story, but she doesn’t really have 100% of all the information or knowledge of what’s exactly going on in the story. Mostly, there’s hints to things that the reader gets and can elaborate on and see the bigger picture on, but Ryouko can’t. I think I’d make Yukizome a lot like that, if she’s still going to be the ‘main character.’ Still make her the teacher, but have her be a kind of outside perspective, who hears about these things happening around school, is told to investigate for Munakata, but never 100% gets knowledge on it, while also struggling to take care of her class, who has problems of their own. In the end, she can’t juggle all of that and collapses after she sees that one by one, her kids have been falling to despair and she’s barely been able to notice with all the other things she’s been doing.

Have Junko be in the background, the sdr2 kids talk about her, but maybe don’t reveal her until the end, when she finally pushes Yukizome into despair after she sees how badly she’s failed her students, which simultaneously reveals her as the mastermind of mirai-hen.

Basically, leave it a lot more ambiguous what’s actually going on, because the watchers already know the sdr2 kids are falling into despair. (not too ambiguous, though. I mean Komaeda and Nanami if I made her real would obviously try to talk to Yukizome and the others about what’s happening, so we’d get some info on how Junk is manipulating them, but again information is very vague and shady and uncertain, everyone’s kind of unreliable narrators and they don’t realize it until it’s too late.)

Keeping it as close to the final product as we got, that’s what I’d do, something along those lines. If you wanna hear what I’d do if I got free reign, then you can send another ask! This answer is just getting super long, lol.
