✨ 🌸 mildliner inspired study playlists🌸 ✨

blue pack (cool)

  • mostly instrumental music for improved concentration
  • best for “chill” study sessions i.e. re-reading lessons, rewriting notes, making annotations, flashcards etc
  • of cool breeze floating gently into the room, causing the edges of curtains to flutter. you look up from your notebook and notice how quiet the world is, how clean your desk is. books are neatly stacked in a corner; the vase has fresh daisies in it. you can hear your soft breathing in the silence.
  • everything is so calm, and yet you’re crying.

pink pack (neon)

  • for when you have something due at 7am and it’s already 4am but you’re just 50% done RIP
  • no really why did you procrastinate???!
  • YA SO TIRED BUT YA GOTTA GET THAT A
  • gotta have some power POP instead of power NAP
  • “I swear I will never do this again!!!”

yellow (warm)

  • nothing really matters in life anymore; you’re just numb™
  • but you still have to study because people expect so much of you; you expect so much of you
  • this is sitting in a room feeling tired and lonely, pale sunset light surrounding you. this is thinking you’re too old for your body; that everything good has already happened.
  • this is flipping absentmindedly through textbook pages, re-reading every sentence twice because your mind is elsewhere.
  • and maybe this is about remembering something to live for, even if it’s that one friend, that one tv show

me: will you look at THAT, this sweet radiant ethereal angel has a smile so bright his eyes are literally SPARKLING, his irises are GLOWING, i’ve never seen this phenomenon before in my LIFE 

someone: yeah i think it’s just the tv reflecting in his eyes or someth-

me: literally an angel sent from above, how is he REAL. wow. look at that face, LOOK AT THAT FACE 

One of the more amusing claims I have heard from the salt resulting from the anime awards was that “Yuri on Ice became so popular only because of gay-baiting/fujoshi-baiting.”

I really have to laugh at this because every season we get a number of anime that could be described with the words “gay-baiting” or “fujoshi pandering”, yet somehow none of them get anywhere near the popularity YOI has? Some of them are based on manga and even despite that, their fandoms (and the resulting popularity) are smaller than YOI’s.

Wanna know the secret?

It’s because Yuri on Ice was not baiting.

Which is exactly what makes the difference.

But the thing is that it wasn’t just “not baiting” because there do exist anime that explicitly show gay relationships - yaoi anime. Yet somehow yaoi anime also get not even a fraction of the attention and popularity YOI has.

Wanna know why?

Because Yuri on Ice presented a natural, healthy, and what we should highlight, fully consensual, romantic relationship between two men, which was not sexualized or fetishized in any way. We had no ‘seme’ (dominant or ‘male partner’) and no ‘uke’ (submissive or ‘female partner’), we had two humans who were in love and in a deeply emotional relationship. And while this is minor, we also had no ‘sparkly pink backgrounds’ and whatnot, which make everything feel so unreal and displaced, and instead everything happened in the real world and was witnessed by other characters and just felt natural and grounded in reality.

The proper gay representation was enough to make the anime popular (because it is just so rare and well-done), but it is certainly not the only reason why it is so loved by so many and why it reached such levels of popularity.

One of the reasons is that it wasn’t just a romance. It was an anime with a plot and figure skating as its main focus, which showed a love story on the side, as the story unraveled and characters drew. The love story was important, but the anime was always more than that.

Many people also really enjoyed other aspects of the anime, be it the characters themselves, their development, the handling of mental illness, the ethnic diversity (and lack of stereotypes!), the presentation of figure skating, the music or just all of the above.

Yes, the LGBT+ aspect was important but an anime without any other enjoyable qualities wouldn’t have gone as far as YOI did, wouldn’t be as loved as YOI was (and as it still is).

Yuri on Ice perhaps isn’t an anime for everyone, but it certainly deserves credit for all it managed to do, because if it were really just ‘bait’ then it would have never achieved the success and popularity it has now.
