We call ships ‘she.’ We call our war machines 'women.’ We compare women to black widows and vipers. And you’re going to tell me it’s not 'lady-like’ to scream, to take up space, to fight and demand respect and do whatever the hell I want. You’ve looked at nuclear bombs and been so in awe that you could only name them after women. Don’t try to down-play my power.
some very important Christophe Giacommeti & Viktor Nikiforov headcanons:
shoutout to @lavenderprose who has the same brain as me when it comes to YOI/Viktor hcs
Chris and Viktor have been friends for 10+
years. if the scene with Viktor at juniors is his last year as a junior, that
means they met when Viktor was about 15 and Chris was about 13. They have
almost certainly been through Some Shit together and know the other one better
than they know themselves.
every year at worlds, the night after the free
skate, regardless of the results, the two of them buy 3 bottles of shitty wine
and watch whatever movies they’ve been texting each other about throughout the
season. The Notebook, Pitch Perfect, The
Avengers, whatever it is, they get
wine drunk and MST3K the hell out of it after the medal ceremony.
(they keep doing this even after Yuuri –
actually, Yuuri was invited one time but couldn’t quite get the hang of the
banter. you can’t make up 10 years of friendship for 6 months of dating, no
matter how in love you are.)
They are fully aware of the idea that they’re
dating/have dated/are sleeping together/have slept together etc. They think it’s hilarious. There’s even a
ship name for it – Viktophe – and they regularly browse the twitter tag and send
each other screenshots of the funniest ideas.
they also read the RPF about them to each other
in hotel rooms during events
that meme where one person bursts into the room
like “I knew you were having sex” and one of the pair is like “oh no one told
me I would have put down my book”? that’s them.
They have biweekly bitchfest skype/phone calls
where they just dish on whatever dumb shit has happened to them recently.
When they were younger and Viktor still had
really long hair Christophe would fix it for galas and events. He really liked
to try out pinterest/youtube tutorials but didn’t have a model so Viktor would
volunteer, then show up to a sponsorship event with like a hairbow updo.
you’d think Yakov would hate him considering the
both of them 100% are terrible influences on each other re:acting like drama
queens, being massive flirts, buying lululemon yogas with “peach” emblazoned
across the ass
but actually Chris is a really good influence on
Viktor in more important ways. i.e. ensuring he doesn’t kill himself and making
sure Yakov knows to keep an eye out on him.
there have been at least 3 times Chris has
called Yakov at an ungodly hour of the morning insisting he go check on Viktor
because he was very worried that Viktor was going to do something stupid
chris is almost always right about this. yakov
has found his star skater on the ledge and had to coax him down and into the
shower more times than he’d like to admit. chris knows viktor, knows his tells,
knows when he’s starting to get bad again
by the time they’re 20 and 22, yakov goes to
chris if he’s worried about viktor’s mental health but viktor won’t talk about
it. no one’s ever said it aloud, but
they all know that Chris may well be the reason Viktor is still alive
tl:dr – chris has been worried about his best
friend for a long time and when he sees how viktor lights up with yuuri, he
gets to breathe easy for the first time in a long time
I know very little about this "Colin Wilkes" character. Please inform me of this person who is hanging out with my beautiful baby bird.
SOOOOO this is the most exciting ask I have ever received. My sweet, precious anon… LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT COLIN WILKES! I am protective of the baby bird as well, but Colin is 1000% approved company :)
Basically, he was Damian’s first friend that he ever made outside of the Bat family, which I think is REALLY important. He mainly only appeared in the Dick-Bats book Streets Of Gotham, and the extremely adorable Lil’ Gotham, but sadly now he doesn’t exist or something because DC CONTINUITY LOL. This gives a nice summary of his origin, but essentially Colin Wilkes was an abused orphan the same age as Damian who was kidnapped by the Scarecrow and given Solomon Grundy-esque powers and used as a weapon against Batman. Batman ultimately saves him (but doesn’t adopt him ??? wtf) and Colin, who idolizes superheroes, goes back to the orphanage, where he decides he should use his new powers to fight for those who can’t.
(There’s also a fairly solid theory that Colin may be the son of Tommy Elliot, aka Hush, but who cares)
And it’s all gemshippingtrash‘s fault like I somehow wandered onto their blog and BAM GEM EGGS and I was pulled into it all. And because it’s adorable (and sad but idc I do what I want) and because I’m otp/ot3 trash I did a thing and Jasper is just stupidly proud of all these gems like just wipe that smug grin off your face you’re all trash for this
Hey, I joined the fandom right after Virgil's name was released, what was it like before that? I'm very curious, as I know what it was like before Moving On but not Accepting Anxiety.
Oh boy kids strap in because I’ve been here in the fandom since April 2017 and have seen some things.
So back in April basically the only two ships that existed were Prinxiety and Logicality with just a little bit of analogical sprinkled in helped along by the Negative Thinking video. I joined almost directly after the Negative Thinking video because I couldn’t hold back any longer and I think that’s about when this blog somehow turned into a Sanders Sides blog but I digress.
The fandom was mostly calm with a good mixture of senseless out of character angst and senseless out of character fluff and was generally pretty nice. However, it did have one fatal flaw. Morgan.
That’s right you guys. I’m not letting you forget about Morgan.
Everyone was convinced, and I mean convinced that Morality’s name was going to be Morgan. I tried to warn then that it wasn’t going to be Morgan but noooooo. People were begging Thomas to make that the name and putting that name into fanfics and let me tell you those fics did not age too well. Which is a shame because a lot of them were pretty good.
Growing Up was the first video I witnessed the fandom react to, and for the first few hours everything was just a nice mess. Everybody was happy about the new name, the Morgan supporters didn’t throw a riot, and the biggest confusion was that we at first didn’t know how to spell it. Everything was sunshine and rainbows for like a day. But then we saw the birth or perhaps just surfacing of an idea that unfortunately I was at least partially wrong with my stance on it.
Patton is hiding his feelings.
Yeah, yeah, I was proved wrong on this with the Moving On videos, but to be fair, so were the rest of you that loved this idea. I thought he never hid his emotions while everyone else seemed to think that he was just constantly in hell and never ever happy. Jeez.
Needless to say there was a whole bunch of both angsty and fluffy fanart and fanfic in this era surrounding this idea during this era of the fandom. Ugh.
Now, there has always been a whole lot of Anxiety angst and fluff in this fandom. People want to see him being loved and cuddled and crying helplessly on the floor and I never thought that fit his characterization at all but hey we’re here to have fun not be accurate so let the people do what they want.
Anyways, after the Changes video, the already fan favorite Anxiety got even more angst about him. The poor baby (gag) had his body changed without consent and nobody listened to him and you know how it goes. People cooing over grown adults and/or part of the mind of a grown adult in this case. Moxiety also took a small spike in popularity after this video and everybody saw it as pure and cute even though I most definitely didn’t but I agree it’s an interesting dynamic so that was a good thing.
After the Cartoon video we called it. It was the fun filler episode before things got deep. In all honesty, the biggest change after this video was that we could all taste the name reveal and everybody was theorizing their heads off.
Angel, Ethan, Atlas, and so many more. Unlike Morgan, nobody could agree on a name for Anxiety. We all got a little more antsy and insane as the days went on. Well, everyone else did. I was patiently waiting and was willing to wait a little longer. If you want to see my legacy look at this thread where I cursed the name reveal to be delayed one more video. At the end I look defeated, but I won. Because the next thing turned out to be a two parter. (and the thread is so long a lot of the gifs in it have frozen so if you want to see what they are you’ll probably have to click on where they originally came in to see how they moved.)
Come Accepting Anxiety Part 1. Hoo boy. Everyone was so sad and upset while I was laughing evilly in the corner. That video was absolutely hilarious but everyone around me was just crumbling to their knees and sobbing in a heap out of confusion and despair. I still don’t understand why though, because like I said that video was hilarious.
I like to refer to the week between Acepting Anxiety Part 1 and Accepting Anxiety Part 2 as the week Prinxiety fell into Hell. Everybody and their dog in this fandom was hating on Roman so hard and I think this is as toxic as the fanders get because people that defended him got shut down sometimes and fanders have generally very polite discussions on these manners and for the most part this was no exception but things got kind of… tense, at times. It scared me a little and I got as far away from it as I could but I think I defended Princey once or twice I dunno. It’s all a blur.
After Accepting Anxiety Part 2 came out things calmed down a bit but obviously the fandom was changed forever. We had all the names, Anxiety’s redemption arc was complete, and we had been introduced to the concept of rooms and that there are “others”, whatever that may mean. Prinxiety began its slow climb out of hell, Moxiety became the top ship in the fandom, and the other ships slowly began to work their way into view.
And I’m guessing you know the rest. Crofters, Virgil becoming more of a representation of the feeling of anxiety rather than when you see your anxiety as an other, and the Morality angst coming to a peak in the middle of the moving on saga. This fandom has been on a journey, man. And we’re only roughly a year old. I mean specifically the Sanders Sides subsection of the Thomas Sanders fandom, not the Thomas Sanders fandom as a whole. The fanders have been here since 2013.
Some headcannons with Lotor giving his S/O their own custom jet fighter? :D
//I WANT MY OWN FUCKING FIGHTER JET, LOTOR, YOU’RE HOLDING OUT ON ME–//
God I’d be a handful for that man;;
• “NO, it can NOT be pink.” • “No, you cannot name it the ‘U.S.S Enterprise’.” • “n O I WILL NOT ALLOW YOU TO ‘BEJEWEL’ A GALRAN WEAPON OF WAR.” • “I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT ‘BEJEWEL’ MEANS, BUT I KNOW IT DOESN’T BELONG ON A JET.” • “…I thought I told you nO GLITTER” • tbh Lotor tells you that you can’t do anything • but in the end, you have a pink, studded, bejeweled, glittery fighter named ‘U.S.S Enterprise’ • OKAy no, in all seriousness, Lotor would only allow you a fighter jet on certain terms • You’re allowed to add whatever you fit necessary (hell straight there’s a mini fridge and a cupholder in there) • Also even custom design the weapons • But Lotor would only allow you this one because of the protocol he’s installed • Should the ship take massive damage, or even detect an outnumbered fleet, it is to retreat, using emergency fuel, to take you back to the Galra ship • It’s more reinforced than most other fighters bc he’d kill someone if you got hurt out there • He cares a lot about you • And obviously trusts you enough to pilot a fighter • Congratulations~
Hi alex! I dont know if you take prompts and if you dont thats ok. If you do can you write a scene in your bth verse where emma tells killian about her ability to spot lies please? Thank you and dont worry if you dont have time to write it i understand.
So, this is one of those things where it’s clear that at some point in Beyond the Horizon, Killian finds out about Emma’s superpower, but I never wrote the actual scene where she tells him. Then I got carried away and wrote 4,000 words once I started thinking about how it would have come out. Unlike the other BtH extras, this isn’t a single scene, this is some missing bits and pieces that take place over several chapters of the main fic.
Also on ff.net here as part of my Interlude at Sea series.
(and yes, there’s smut)
Something was nagging at him.
It was a faint but insistent tug at the back of his mind, a lurking shadow in the corner of his eye.
“Women on ships are bad luck.”
Killian Jones was superstitious - all sailors were, to some extent. He wore charms around his neck to guard against the cold grasp of Davy Jones (no relation) and never dared to challenge the wind by absent-mindedly whistling on deck. He steered well clear of the flocks of albatrosses soaring about overhead in search of dinner and avoided the sleek schools of mermaids below - treacherous, untrustworthy creatures they were, but he’d never held much stock in the old belief that a woman aboard a ship was bad luck. He certainly didn’t think that his golden-haired treasure had brought him any ill since he’d stolen her away for his own, the single storm (that they’d forded with no casualties and no cost save a lost day or two on repairs) aside, he’d had nothing but astonishingly good luck with Princess Emma by his side.
In his arms.
In his bed.
But still, there was something about her that he couldn’t quite put his finger on. Some mysterious quality about her that had nothing to do with her more obvious, feminine charms, like the tilt of her lips that practically begged for his kisses or the curve of her waist that seemed to have been made for his hands to circle and pull her close, lovely and dreadfully distracting whenever he tried and failed to get to the bottom of exactly what was bothering him.
