what a gold mine that would be


i understand this fandom is in a complete state of panic right now, but please hear me out

I highly, highly doubt Yuuri was talking about their relationship.

I completely believe that Yuuri is talking about his competitive skating career.

They’re going to get married regardless of whether or not Yuuri wins gold. They would not exchange rings and get engaged, only to call off the engagement if Yuuri doesn’t win gold. What kind of ending would that be.

No. Yuuri is talking about ending his competitive career after this competition. “Let’s end this.” AKA let’s end you being “Victor Nikiforov, my coach”

“The final event” is not referring to the free skate. No. “The final event” is referring to their life. “The final event Victor and I will face together is about to begin.” Yuuri is talking about their lives. Their life together

This was Yuuri’s face when Victor asked him what he wanted to talk about. Does that look like the face of somebody who wants to part ways with Victor? NO.


  • interviewer: so you two are against each other. does that affect your relationship at all? add tension? cause fights?
  • victor: oh, well I'm rooting for yuuri. he better win.
  • yuuri: no, victor has to win. he's the one who would truly deserve it. i mean look-
  • victor: okay, but yuuri is going to win??? idc what he says?? he has to win??? like-
  • yuuri: victor is going to win??? sure i might win gold, but he will too? what's your question here?
  • victor: yeah what are you trying to imply? that we won't win gold?
  • interviewer:

He was asking Yuri to excite him by kissing him

1-He couldn’t have been asking Yuri to excite him by doing something big in his next competition, as at that moment in time, Victor had been told Yuri was retiring, so there’d be no way to compensate through his skating. 

2- What he wanted to do was kiss the medal, not see or touch it. Which implied Yuri would have to give him something as exciting as kissing a gold medal.

3- His body language (cornering Yuri, leaning over him and keeping their faces close) and the focus on his engagement ring shining point to something romantic.

He was telling Yuri to kiss him. Yuri is shy, and all the times we’ve seen them kiss so far, Victor initiated it, so Victor was telling him to do something different and initiate a kiss in public.

“Tell me what that look means,” Tarquin said, bracing his muscled arms on the gold tablecloth. I said baldly, “I’m thinking it would be very easy to love you. And easier to call you my friend.” He smiled at me—broad and without restraint. “I would not object to either.”


My fate, O King, led me hither, through perils such as few even of the Elves would dare. And here I have found what I sought not indeed, but finding I would possess for ever. For it is above all gold and silver, and beyond all jewels. Neither rock, nor steel, nor the fires of Morgoth, nor all the powers of the Elf-kingdoms, shall keep from me the treasure that I desire. For Lúthien your daughter is the fairest of all the Children of the World.

Reasons Why I Love George Harrison

1. He was a beautiful human being. Inside and out.

2. He spoke so eloquently and shared such words of wisdom.

3. He had a great sense of humour. He never fails to make me laugh.

4. His laugh warms my heart. It’s so nice to listen to.

5. He wrote amazing songs. They’re so underrated, but that’s partly what makes them even more amazing. It’s like finding a mine of gold that only a few people know about.

6. I would’ve loved to have met him. It breaks my heart that it will never happen.

7. He introduced Indian influence to The Beatles’ music and added a new dimension to it.

8. He gives me hope that kind people have existed, do exist now and they will in the future.

ok im late to the party but this last episode of Camp Camp was lit just. a GOLD MINE for “max has the tragic backstory” theory fuel

Like this is not a “wait what’s going on, oh this is sad” face. this is an “i know. EXACTLY what you’re talking about” face


this is probably the closest to crying we’ve ever seen max??? like as a person who has panic attacks max looks like he’s on the edge of a panic attack. he’s not paying attention to whats happening in the scene anymore, because his eyes aren’t following david’s voice or movement. He’s 100% in his head right now

when max said “wow, Nurf is way more fucked up than I thought,” hes saying “I didn’t expect for Nurf to have similar issues to me”

The female audience of Star Wars is underestimated, but I have met so many female fans. And I hope there are more, encouraged by Rey.” ─ Daisy Ridley in response to “Are you worried about being seen as a role model?“

You're Not Paying This Time

Thank you for your request. Here it is. I hope this is what you wanted.😊

-GIF isn’t mine-

“Gold digger???? What?” I say, talking to myself and looking at my phone. “If they hate me why do they keep talking about me? I don’t get it….” I add.

It wasn’t the first time that I was reading comments about my relationship with Seunghyun. We’ve been dating for a little bit more than four years, but we recently made it public. This is why I was reading these comments. 

Some of Seunghyun’s fans thought I was some kind of sick woman who would only date him for his money.

This whole drama started few weeks after we made it public. Some pictures were posted only, in which we could see Seunghyun leaving an expensive shop with a bag. They were immediately assuming it was for me.

To say that it didn’t affect me would be a lie. For the past two weeks it has been driving me crazy. The good point was that Seunghyun and I weren’t living together so I made sure he didn’t know about this.

Whenever I see these comments I would start to think ‘what if Seunghyun starts to believe them? What if he thinks I don’t love him? What if he wants to leave me because of this?’

“Why can’t they be happy for us?” I whisper.

*Ting ting*

I didn’t realize that I crying until I saw my reflection on my phone screen.

“SHIT SHIT SHIT!!!!” I yell to myself. “How am I gonna explain to Seunghyun? He’s going to see my face.. 

The second I hear someone type my door lock’s code, I rush to my bathroom and jump in the shower.

“Hey” he quietly says, smiling at me. “I missed you Jagi” he whispers, kissing my cheek.

“Hi! How was your day?” I quietly ask, going to the kitchen.

“Good. I was working with the guys!” he yawns.

“What do you want to eat tonight?” I ask, opening the fridge. “Whatever you want. We can order take out or something. We can’t go out, you’re in you pajamas. So it’s up to you! If you want to cool, you obviously can” he chuckles, back hugging me.

“Hum yeah sure!” I awkwardly nod. “What’s wrong?” he suddenly asks, frowning.

“Nothing why?” I ask, facing him. “Y/N! What’s wrong?!” he sighs, crossing his arms.

“I’m okay. Don’t worry about it!” I slowly nod with a smile. “So do you want to order?” I ask, trying to change the subject.

“Whatever you say” he whispers. “I don’t care. I told you we could order or cook” he adds, staring at me with a concerned look.

“Oppa! I’m fine. I had a big day at work. Some of my employees weren’t taking care of our clients and I had to improvise a meeting. My assistant wasn’t efficient because she was a bit sick” I sigh. This wasn’t a lit, I had a big day at work.

“I”m sorry.. I just.. I want you to tell me if anything bothers you. I don’t want you to keep it to yourself. I’m sorry” he quietly says, stroking my arms. 

“It’s okay” I smile. “Let’s order take out” he smiles, kissing my lips.

“Jagi, can I use your phone to check the tv program?” he asks from the living room. “Yeah sure, my phone should be somewhere in the living room” I say from the kitchen.

“I need to take glasses and napkins and we can eat” I whisper to myself.

“What’s this?” I suddenly hear Seunghyun ask.

“Oh my!! You scared me” I chuckle, not expecting him to be next to me.

“Answer my question. What is this??” he asks.

“What are you talking about?” I ask, frowning. “This” he simply says, showing me my phone.

I didn’t know what to say. I could lie but it would be pointless.

“Have you been reading these comments?” he asks. “I… Yes” I quietly answer, looking down at my feet.

“How long?” he asks, clenching his jaw.

“Oppa, I-”

“HOW LONG?” he asks, raising his voice. 

“I don’t know.. maybe two weeks?!” I shrug.

“Two weeks? You’ve been reading these comments for two weeks and you didn’t tell me a thing about it?” he calmly asks, still clenching his jaw.

“Why would’ve tell you something about you?” I frown. “I don’t know, maybe because I’m your boyfriend?” he sarcastically chuckles.

“I didn’t want you to be worried..” I sigh, taking the two glasses and napkins we needed.

“Can you stop!!! This is serious! We need to talk about this!!!” he says, pointing at my phone.

“So.. This is what you want to do?” I slowly ask, looking up at him.

“This is the best thing we can do. I don’t want you to receive these comments for the rest of you life” he whisper, stroking my hand.

‘Rest of my life? Is he planning to stay with me for the rest of his life?’ I started to think, frowning.

“Are you seriously thinking about this?” he chuckles. “Yes, I’m willing and planning to stay with you for the rest of my life” he smiles, kissing the back of my hand.

Seunghyun’s POV

“So you recently made your relationship public. How long have you been dating?” the interviewer asks, looking at me.

“We’ve been dating for a little bit more than four years” I answer, nodding.

“Four years? That’s a lot. Why have you decided to make you relationship public?” he adds.

“We’ve reached a point in our relationship which makes us think about our future. Personally I don’t see my life without her” I shyly admit, giggling.

“That’s cute! You look happy” he smiles at me.

“He is, well they both are. They look really happy when they’re together” Jiyong suddenly says. “When did you discover about Y/N?” the interviewer asks the members.

“Huuum, I think it was like a year and half ago. He invited us to his place, which is something he rarely does. Y/N was at his place and cooked us dinner. We had a really good time. She’s really nice and she makes him really happy” Taeyang answers.

“Wasn’t you scared about your fans’ reaction?” he suddenly asks me.

“Well, I- We didn’t really think about it. We mostly did it because we didn’t want to hide our relationship. You know, it’s exhausting to hide yourself whenever you go out” I explain.

“I think most of them are happy for me, for us. But obviously some aren’t” I add.

“Hyung doesn’t really talk about his concerns. But he came up to us about a week ago and he was upset because of the comments Y.N was receiving” Seungri quietly explains.

“She still does” I sigh, frowning.

“Yeah, unfortunately she still does. Some fans thinks that she’s dating him because of his career or money. Daesung says. “We’ve met her and she’s one of the nicest person” he adds.

“Ah really??” the interviewer asks, looking surprised.

“Yeah, I saw some comments which were saying that she was using me for my money, that I should break up with her. I think that because we made our relationship public few months ago, they assumed that our relationship was recent” I explain.

“But what they don’t know is that she doesn’t use my for my money. She’s not a gold digger. As her boyfriend, I like to buy her gifts” I say. 

“But what you don’t know is that she has her own company. Her business works really really well” I add. 

“If you think she’s only dating me for my money, I would like to know why she would regularly buy me gifts? She likes to buy me gifts, whether it’s for a special occasion or not. Recently she bought me a really good bottle of wine. She’s actually the one spoiling me” I admit, chuckling.

“You really didn’t have to do this” she says, smiling at me.

“No you’re right! But I wanted to” I smile. “As I said, I want to spend the rest of my life by your side and I don’t want you to go through a hard time because of some stupid comments” I add, holding her in my arms.

“Thank you. Thank you so much oppa~” she says, holding me back and leaving little kisses on my neck.

“I love you” I whisper in her ear. “I love you too! Now we’re going out for dinner” she says, leaving a gently kiss on my lips.

“You’re not paying this time” I chuckle, kissing her back.

I hope you liked it. Feel free to send me feedback about it, I would love to know what you thought about it.

You can send me requests for scenarios, drabbles or fake texts.

Hello! I'm not sure how much you know about the 1848-50 California gold rush, but as a native Californian, I've always been fascinated by the topic. My question is multifaceted. For one: how big would miners plots of land along the various rivers be, and would people actually live on the same plots that they mined for gold? Also, what would it be like for a young woman and/or young men and children in an area like this?

Hello there! Well, aren’t you in luck because we have the Archivist from @scriptlibrarian answering this one! The Archivist has also studied history and has got your back so just read on!

There is gold in them darn hills!

Quick history of the California Gold Rush.  In 1848, John Marshal found flecks of gold in the American River, just below the Sierra Nevadas, in Coloma California, while building a water powered sawmill for John Sutter.

Just days after he discovered the gold, the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo was signed, ending the Mexican-American War, giving California to the United States and essentially the gold.

The discovery of Gold shaped California into the state is today.  California saw the largest migration influx in the history of the United States.  In 1848 there was roughly 157,000 people in California (150,000 Natives, 6,500 Spanish/Mexican, 700 American/Non-Native).  Within 20 months the Non-Native Population soared to 100,000 and by the mid 1850’s was past 300,000.  This massive population influx put California on fast track to Statehood, and with the Compromise of 1850 California was allowed into the Union, just two years after the land was acquired, as a Free State - leading a imbalance in Free vs Slave States.  

So now that we got background history established let’s look at your questions.

How big would miner’s plots of land along the various rivers be…

I admit, I dug around for this information and beyond going into deep dark storage and digging out (pun intended) my books from school … the best answer I could find is - depends.

Yeah I hate that also.

A miner would first have to  Staking a Claim, which involves first the discovery of a valuable mineral in quantities that a “prudent man” would invest time and expenses to recover them. Then mark the claim boundaries, with wooden posts, capped steel posts, both of which must be four feet tall, or stone cairns, which must be three feet tall. Then filing a claim with the land management agency (USFS or BLM), and the local county registrar.   

There are four types of Land Claims, a miner could make:

  • Placer (minerals free of the local bedrock, and deposited in benches or streams) - This would be your typical visual of Gold Miners.  Bent over a stream with a pan, looking for flexs or small nuggets of gold. 
  • Lode (minerals in place in the mother rock) - next stage up.  The Miner has a section off shoot of the river, and is breaking up the rocks looking for veins of gold.
  • Tunnel (a location for a proposed tunnel which claims all veins discovered during the driving of it) - This would be someone with enough capital to start mining operation looking for gold, and could hire workers.
  • Millsite (a maximum five acre site for processing ore) - This is a full on organization, that is mining not just gold, but other minerals as well.  Has a team of miners, and likely a full town surrounding it to supplement the miners.

So if your character would need to find the gold, stake out his claim, then register it.  Depending on how much gold found, expense to work the land, and fees for the register - would determine the size of his land claim.

Would your character live in the same spot as they mine?

Yes, they would have a camp with a tent and supplies near by, so they could work their claim dawn to dusk.  They did this for a variety of reasons:

Ease of access to the claim.  The last thing anyone wanted to do was hike in and out of the area, wasting precious time traveling when they could be mining.

Protecting their assets.  If they are away from their claim, someone could sneak in and mine the area, or re stake the claim stating it was abandoned.

Also, what would it be like for a young woman and/or young men and children in an area like this?

The Gold Rush was not really a place for children. It was a brutal work, and a very lonely existence.  Many men left their families behind in hopes of making it rich to bring back the gold to them.   

That doesn’t mean that there wasn’t women in the camps.  

At one point there was a call out to women to go to California, because there was a fear men would do ‘untold’ things without the calm and stable influence of a woman (not many headed the call).

There were wives that worked the claims with their husbands, and likely even a few who took over the claim after he died.  Though this was dangerous as she would be on her own, and had very little rights to the land.  

Most of the women seen in or around the camps were washers, cooks, those seeking out a living for their family.  These women came with their husbands, fathers, brothers and ended up making the money for the family to survive, while the men panned for gold.

By the 1850’s there were roughly 1000 women working in and around the mines, but they were still a small part of the population, and  by the 1860’s they were less than 19% of the population of California.

A good resource to look into the role women played in the Gold Rush would be They Saw the Elephant: Woman in the Gold Rush by JoAnn Levy.

Now as for young men, it would depend on what you mean by young men?  

There were many teenage boys out in the fields, either they came with their father or ran away from home. The Gold Rush was an opportunity to make it rich fast, and men from all walks of life, old and young found their way to California.

Children were less likely in the mines or panning for gold.  If the whole family was in the gold fields, the younger kids would be with mom, helping with cooking, washing, etc.  Older boys maybe 12ish would be with dad.  There are not many accounts, but it didn’t mean they weren’t there.  

William Tecumseh Sherman - the future Civil War General, worked in San Francisco during the Gold Rush as a banker, and had his two young sons with him during the time, while his wife and daughter stayed back East.  Now this was in the city and not the gold fields.  Women, kids and families were very common in San Francisco.

In contrast Ulysses S. Grant was in the Army at the time, stationed in the gold fields and had left his family behind.  This also led to him being discharged from the Army, because of his drinking problem, as he had never done well being away from his wife, Julia.

Irony both men would come together a decade later, a friendship that some say changed the world.  But that is another essay.

Some interesting facts about the Gold Rush that could be helpful.

  • The Gold Rush attracted immigrants from around the world, by 1850 more than 25 percent of California’s population had been born outside the United States. As the amount of available gold began to dwindle, miners increasingly fought one another for profits and anti-immigrant tensions soared. In 1850 California’s legislature passed a Foreign Miner’s tax, which levied a monthly fee of $20 on non-citizens, the equivalent of more than $500 in today’s money. That bill was eventually repealed, but was replaced with another in 1852 that expressly singled out Chinese miners, charging them $2 ($80 today) a month. Violence against foreign miners increased as well, and beatings, rapes and even murders became commonplace. However no ethnic group suffered more than California’s Native Americans. Before the Gold Rush, its native population numbered roughly 300,000. Within 20 years, more than 100,000 would be dead. Most died from disease or mining-related accidents, but more than 4,000 were murdered by enraged miners.
  • Early sections of San Francisco were built out of ships abandoned by prospectors. The Gold Rush conjures up images of thousands of “’49ers” heading west in wagons to strike it rich in California, but many of the first prospectors actually arrived by ship. Within months, San Francisco’s port was teeming with boats that had been abandoned after their passengers, and crew headed inland to hunt for gold. As the formerly tiny town began to boom, demand for lumber increased dramatically, and the ships were dismantled and sold as construction material. Hundreds of houses, banks, saloons, hotels, jails and other structures were built out of the abandoned ships, while others were used as landfill. Today, more than 150 years after the Gold Rush began, archeologists and preservations continue to find relics, sometimes even entire ships, beneath the streets of the City by the Bay.  Map of where ships can be found in San Francisco
  • Mining wasn’t cheap! Most of the men who flocked to northern California arrived with little more than the clothes on their backs. Once there, they needed to buy food and supplies, which San Francisco’s merchants were all too willing to provide for a cost. Stuck in a remote region, far from home, many prospectors coughed up most of their hard-earned money for the most basic supplies. At the height of the boom in 1849, prospectors could expect prices sure to cause sticker shock: A single egg could cost the equivalent of $25 in today’s money, coffee went for more than $100 per pound and replacing a pair of worn out boots could set you back more than $2,500.
  • The merchant’s made the money not the miners.  As the boom continued, more and more men got out of the gold-hunting business and began to open businesses catering to newly arrived prospectors. In fact, some of America’s greatest industrialists got their start in the Gold Rush. Philip Armour, who would later found a meatpacking empire in Chicago, made a fortune operating the sluices that controlled the flow of water into the rivers being mined. Before John Studebaker built one of America’s great automobile fortunes, he manufactured wheelbarrows for Gold Rush miners. And two entrepreneurial bankers named Henry Wells and William Fargo moved west to open an office in San Francisco, an enterprise that soon grew to become one of America’s premier banking institutions. One of the biggest mercantile success stories was that of Levi Strauss. A German-born tailor, Strauss arrived in San Francisco in 1850 with plans to open a store selling canvas tarps and wagon coverings to the miners. After hearing that sturdy work pants, ones that could withstand the punishing 16-hour days regularly put in by miners, were more in demand, he shifted gears, opening a store in downtown San Francisco that would eventually become a manufacturing empire, producing Levi’s denim jeans.
  • And to prove how fate is fickle - the man who’s name will always be associated with the California Gold Rush - John Sutter - died in poverty.  As news had spread about the discovery of gold on his property, within months, most of his workers had abandoned him to search for gold themselves, while thousands of other prospectors overran and destroyed much of his land and equipment. Faced with mounting debts, Sutter was forced to deed his land to one of his sons, who used it to create a new settlement called Sacramento. Sutter Sr. was furious—he had hoped the town would be named after him—but he had more pressing concerns. Nearly bankrupt, he began a decades-long campaign to have the U.S. government reimburse him for his financial losses, to no avail. While thousands became rich off his former land, a bitter Sutter retired to Pennsylvania and died.

I hope this information is helpful, and will give you some insight of the world during the California Gold Rush.

I got a phone call that there was a situation.


“Jesus, fuck,” Namjoon breathes out.


Hwasa side eyes her best friend and dips her fries in some ketchup.

“He’s wearing them again.”

Namjoon points in the direction to the front of the cafeteria, where Seokjin and Byulyi are getting their lunch and Hwasa rolls her eyes.

“So, your boyfriend is wearing glasses. I mean, he looks good, but why is this a big deal?”

If looking confused and offended at the same time would be a sport, Namjoon just won the gold medal.

“What do you mean, what is the big deal?”

He waves his arms around to emphasise his words.

“They’re my glasses, Hwasabi, mine,” he says. “And he looks so fucking good in them I’m in physical pain.”

“Well,” Hwasa says as she takes a sip from her milkshake and winks at Byulyi who’s making her way towards them with Seokjin in tow behind her, her cheeks turning a nice pink. “Good luck with that. This is nice blackmail material, I’ll be sure to tell Seokjin how much you like him wearing your glasses.”

“Don’t you fucking dare-

“Hi, baby.”

Seokjin sits down next to him, kissing his cheek, and Namjoon shoots Hwasa a look that screams ‘we’re not done yet’.

Hwasa only smiles back cheekily, a perfectly manicured middle finger up in the air as a silent answer.

‘Oh, yes we are’
