while the world watched

A compilation of all the skater cameos in Yuri!!! on Ice:

These little shoutouts to the real figure skating world amused me greatly while watching the anime, so I’ve decided to mash them all into one post:

Yuzuru Hanyu - Sochi 2014 Olympic Gold Medalist, 2014 World Champion, four time Grand Prix Final Champion (2013-16), two-time Four Continents silver medalist (2011, 2013), four time Japanese National Champion (2013-2016), current world record holder for highest short program, free skate, and combined score.

Now works as a professional skater and TV commentator, and also specifically requested to appear on Yuri!!! on Ice (I’m still laughing, what a dork)

Dumb headcanon of the day: since Victor and Yuuri are so popular, they get a lot of requests to do promotional work for stuff and publicity stunts and things, and they turn down anything that’s too outrageous…but one time an animal rescue group asks them to help with a fundraiser, and they can’t say no to helping doggies in need. You know that buzzfeed video where they get those girls drunk and then let them play with puppies? That’s pretty much what this ends up being. Please donate money and considering adopting a shelter animal while watching a livestream of these world class athletes drunk off their asses and surrounded by puppies!!

Yuuri keeps picking up each puppy to kiss and rub his face against while sobbing about how cute they are. Victor has his arms full of puppies and tears streaming down his face ‘I SHOULDN’T HAVE DRANK VODKA, I CAN’T PROTECT THEM’

It ends up being very successful, and Makkachin gets a new sibling because they just couldn’t leave without adopting at least one puppy.

current sexual orientation: series one IK, with particular reference to wet and/or beaten up IK

The world burned while Atlas watched
(no, that isn’t right)
Atlas died screaming, trying to save those he’d watched over

Aphrodite is about romantic love
(no, that isn’t right)
Love comes in many forms but it always leaves a mark - Aphrodite


Artemis fell in love once
(no, that isn’t right)
Artemis loved the maidens she raised, the trees, she loved all who tried


Peresphone was manipulated by the King of Underworld
(no, that isn’t right)
Peresphone chose power, chose love, chose freedom, she chose


Achilles was golden
(No, that isn’t right)
Achilles was rusted, bruised and bloody. He was in love

Third wheel | Kian Lawley

You’re in the couch with Kian and JC and they’re like having their own world while you just sit beside them watching netflix.

“Dude just do it.” JC said half yelling and whispering to Kian and you hear a little ‘I don’t know how’ from him.

They’re just too close to each other you thought any second they might kiss now.

So since the movie’s getting a little boring, you take your phone out and took a selfie with them on the background while they look like they’re cuddling.

You opened you twitter account and tweeted the picture with the caption “Third wheelin’” and tagged Kian and Jc.

You instantly got many retweets and likes. Kian and Jc’s head turned toward you. “What?”

“Why did you tweet that?” Kian asked irritated.

“Why?” You chuckled. “You two look cute together.” You added with a smile and lean your back to the couch and your feet up.

“Awe, don’t be jealous.” Jc said.

“Why would I be jealous? I ship the two of you.” You said.

“Well, I ship us.” Kian said momentarily shocked at what he says and looked at him confused and you felt your face heating up.

“Big fan.” Jc raised his hand and put it back down immediately while nodding. Kian glared at him. “Oh yeah. I’ll leave you two alone.” And he went straight to the kitchen.

“Uhm.” It was so awkward but Kian is looking at you.

“So uhm.” He started and scoot towards you. He looked back at you. “I like you.” He said going straight to the point.

You have no idea what to say because all along you developed feelings for Kian. “But you don’t have to like me back. I mean..” He looked away scratched the back of his head, blushing.

“No. It’s cool.” You said and he looked back at you. “Honestly,” you said looking him straight in the eyes. “I.. Like you too.”

He sat up, his eyes sparkling. “Really?” He asked with a big grin and you just nodded. “So..?”

“Yeah. You can totally take me out on a date sometime.” You said with a smile as he screamed “yes!” At the top of his lungs.

Then you heard Jc clearing his throat. “You done? I.. I would like to watch the movie.” The both of you laugh and let Jc sit beside Kian.

Kian put his arms around you while you rest your head in his shoulder.

Then your eyes keep getting heavier until you heard your phone dings. Jc mentioned you in his tweet.

It’s a selfie of him with you and Kian cuddling on the background. “Guess who’s ‘third wheelin’’ now.”

I like that Sansa and Littlefinger were both screwed over by a feudal system that considered their lives and safety unimportant (a female political hostage and a minor lordling from the middle of nowhere) then they both had a horrible turn of fortune that defined and scarred them for years (Ned being executed and the duel with Brandon) that eventually led to new situations where they were afforded soft political power (the daughter of a lord-protector and the master of coin) which led them to grasping even more power (married to the heir of the Eyrie and dubbed lord of Harrenhal).

Yet Sansa will rule with love and diplomacy and lead Westeros to a new Post-Long Night age, while Littlefinger sought only to watch the world burn through treason, plotting, and murder and will eventually be undone and revealed as a monster.

Two people with two incredibly similar life experiences, responding to those experiences in completely different ways. A careful, deliberate exploration of morality and choice. Hell yeah GRRM. Hell yeah ASOIAF.

And hell yeah Sansa Stark.

Something I noticed while watching Coraline

The Other World almost seems as if it is at the bottom of the old well that Coraline finds in the beginning.

The first thing I noticed was that in the beginning, Wybie says that the well is so deep you could see a sky full of stars in the middle of the day, and in the scenery for the Other World it is ALWAYS night, even in the middle of the day when Coraline is going to Miss Spink and Forcible’s show after lunch.

Also, the passage to the Other World behind the door is practically identical to the inside of the well which we get to see at the end of the movie.

And the last bit is that when Coraline is searching for the eyes of the ghost children, the moon is being eclipsed by a button for her time limit

and it is just like when Coraline and Wybie are covering the well back up after throwing the key away.

Now, I might actually just be really slow and this could be something that literally everybody knows, but I just thought it was kinda interesting. Maybe the Other Mother made Coraline’s world similar to the well because she was interested in it? Or maybe the Other World is actually the bottom of the old well? Either way it is pretty cool that they parallel each other *shrugs*
