why is this show so relaxing

Just bros havin’ hot pot

Phichit and Yuuri are very clearly good friends. Friends who have history and who facetime. Friends who haven’t seen each other in a long time. 

Which makes the scene where they’re all having hot pot so much more in-your-face Viktuuri. 

Viktor and Yuuri are just 2 bros eatin’ n chillin’ at a 4 seat table. Viktor’s taken off his grey jacket which is folded over the free seat beside him. Got a full bottle of alcohol in front of him. He’s comfortable, relaxed. The boys are seated against the wall with the other two chairs keeping them and the rest of the restaurant apart. It’s more private and intimate that way, so that they can chill in peace. 

Why did Yuuri not think to message his other good bro Phichit and invite him to join? Well, it’s the night before a competition and Yuuri’s already feeling nervous, it’s fine that he just wants to keep things cool with Viktor for now.

But Phichit shows up all the same, so might as well all sit together and have a nice meal, right? Right.

And oh look-y here, there are two free seats right by Phichit, it’s going to be real easy to just sit down. But wait, Viktor’s jacket is over one of these seats. That’s a social no-no, a sign that says ‘seat-sorta-taken-unless-you’re-pregnant-or-injured’. No biggie though, the other chair is free and yey, it’s right by his buddy Yuuri!

Hang on a minute. 

When Celestino “Ciao ciao” Cialdini shows up to join the party, Phichit is seated where you’d have expected but Yuuri has moved?

That’s right, Yuuri changed seats.

Instead of just staying put, and having his pal Phichit sit down next to him with literally zero fuss, Yuuri thought ‘hey no, I’m gona go sit next to Viktor now that I have the excuse to since there are more than 2 people here’. 

And wait, what’s this? 

Viktor has taken off his black shirt at this point, and it’s folded over Yuuri’s (occupied) seat beside him. But then, what happened to Viktor’s grey jacket that was there before?

So basically, when Phichit arrived, Yuuri: 

  • got up, 
  • shuffled over the empty seat beside him,
  • moved around the table,
  • removed Victor’s jacket from the chair,
  • and then sat down.

Socially, this seems like a lot of obstacles to go through just to sit next to Viktor. But hey, it’s just sitting next to Viktor. It’s not like anything special happened from Yuuri being next to him. I mean, who knew Viktor was gona get hammered? The bottle of alcohol on the table that Yuuri had no intentions of drinking before a competition certainly wasn’t a sign of that. Not like Yuuri had any idea how Viktor behaved drunk, he’s obviously never drunk anything back in Japan…

And Yuuri was surprised by the pic Phichit uploaded? How could the boy not when Yuuri was being so obvious? Clinging and naked he may have been, but Viktor had the ‘drunk’ card in his arsenal of excuses for this. Viktor wasn’t the one who moved round the table in a clear effort to sit next to you. That was all you, Yuuri, and Phichit couldn’t ignore that when you were being so very obvious about it. He couldn’t! He your bro.

And bro got your back. Now you’ve got a picture of yourself with a naked Viktor Nikiforov. There’s something you’re gona wana frame and put by your nightstand. You’re welcome.

…..I must admit my favourite things to draw or paint to relax are things like this. (maybe thats why i do so much) 

that day everything i had draw wasnt to my liking and i pretty much painted this as a way to test my shimmering paint (who sadly doesn’t show here because scanners….) and “reset” my brain.;u;

….next art will be more dynamic!

(still might add this one to the shop maybe…i just wish the shimmer would show…)

ALPHYS
Hm. They have a point!

GASTER
What?

ALPHYS
Why were you in such a p-panic, sir? L-like they said, it was just Asgore.

GASTER
!

GASTER
Oh, just the king. Just his majesty King Dreemurr. Just the king of all monsters.

ALPHYS
W-well yeah he’s the king, but… S-still, I thought you’d be more relaxed about it. He’s your oldest friend, isn’t he?

GASTER
Yes, but… That doesn’t mean I can slack off, or that I shouldn’t show him respect!

ALPHYS
Aww. That’s n-nice of you to think so, sir. B-but I don’t think Asgore would expect that of you. I mean, you guys go waaay back, right? B-before the war even. 

GASTER
Hmph. Yes, that’s true.

ALPHYS
And you helped him to explore and map out the Underground, right? 

GASTER
Everyone knows that-

ALPHYS
You built the CORE on Asgore’s request, you designed reinforced c-containers that can keep SOULs alive, you assisted in the d-design and construction of the capital- 

GASTER
What are you getting at?

ALPHYS
W-well, sir. You’ve known Asgore for most of your life, and yet you’re the only m-monster I know who still insists on calling him by his title.

GASTER
A-and what is wrong with that? He is our king! We should recognize him as such!

ALPHYS
M-maybe, but I don’t think he really e-expects us to. I mean, e-even Undyne just calls him “Asgore” and she’s his bodyguard.

GASTER
That’s a special case-

ALPHYS
Heck, even Gerson calls him “King Fluffybuns”-

GASTER
Gerson should know better!

ALPHYS
But Gerson has known Asgore almost as long as you have, sir-

GASTER
Almost! And that doesn’t give him permission to refer to him by such a diminutive nickname!

ALPHYS
B-but everyone calls him Fluffybuns, sir-

GASTER
Then maybe more of his subjects should follow my example!

ALPHYS
… You really won’t call him by his name, huh?

GASTER
NO.

ALPHYS
You sure are adamant about this.

GASTER
Harumph!

ALPHYS
… Are youuu…?

GASTER
What?

ALPHYS
Shy?

GASTER
What! Why would I be shy?! This is the king we’re talking about! My oldest friend!

ALPHYS
Exactly, sir.

GASTER

anonymous asked:

C-could you please not reblog art where the characters are white washed? You recently reblogged one where Lance is borderline but Hunk is pretty pasty. Thank you.

Sigh. This isn’t what I wanted to write about tonight. That said, maybe it’s time.

I think I’ve made it clear that this is an anti-discourse blog. That includes race discourse. I think it’s a side of fandom that has done MUCH more harm than good, and I would like it to go away entirely. I understand why it exists, and I would never tell someone else how to use their time, but I will not agree and I will not engage.

I think I know which art piece you’re talking about. The artist was using a rather pastel color palette. It looked like the paladins were sitting in a bright patch of sunlight, relaxing and hanging out together in a lovely room. And that’s all. Yes, Hunk and Lance’s skin tones were lighter than they are in the show. But so was everything. It was clearly an artistic choice and I have no problem with it.

I’m sorry it bothered you. But I’m not going to delete the post. Neither do I intend to keep an eagle eye out in the future to avoid “white-washed” fandom art and avoid reblogging it. I’m sorry if that’s an issue for you. Feel free to unfollow me. I’m not going to train myself to look for problems.

I think the entire mentality in recent years of fandom in general and the Voltron fandom in particular to hunt down “problematic” fan creators and punish them is not only awful and damaging and unhealthy, but also dangerous in a way. Most of the things fans are complaining about their fellow fans doing wrong, or even the show itself, are very minor. By searching so hard for things to be offended about, by finding them and reinforcing them with likeminded fans and working yourself up into a frenzy over them, you are TRAINING yourself to be offended. You are teaching your brain to be pleased and satisfied when you find things that upset you, because the rush of energy and anger feels good. And that just makes you find more and more and more.

This is not a good road to go down. It leads to misery. It leads to depression. It leads to believing that the world is awful and only getting worse, and no matter how much you fight it you can never make a difference, because there’s always going to be some other “problematic” thing to get worked up over. And it’s just going to keep getting worse and worse.

It’s the same way I feel about the “microaggression” thing you hear about in the larger American culture. Racism is bad, and I hate it. But someone asking where you’re from? Not racism. Most of those things I see listed as microagressions are tactless and a little rude, but they aren’t crimes. By teaching ourselves that they are, we’re only making things worse and worse for ourselves and for each other. Morgan Freeman said it best. The best way to cure racism is not to seek it out and decry it, but to find commonalities and learn to love each other instead. You’ll never change a racist by yelling “RACIST!” at them over and over until they shut up. That just makes them hide away in likeminded communities and discuss how awful you are and how abused they are and how they’re right in every bad thing they’ve ever thought about you. You change a racist by showing them that we’re all the same, and our differences are things to be enjoyed and celebrated and shared, not sequestered and hoarded and gloated over like gems.

This is something you learn in therapy for mental illnesses like PTSD and depression, by the way. It’s similar to the counseling I got. Part of the problem with PTSD is hypervigilance, the way your brain is constantly on the look out for things that threaten you. The more you notice, the more tense and alert you become, and then you see more. It’s the same thing with the whole fandom callout culture. I worry a lot about kids who come into the internet fandom bright-eyed and happy, eager to share and discuss the things they love, only to be beaten down by these eagle-eyed folks who see problems everywhere they look that need to be attacked. And these kids are learning to fall in with the crowd, because not to do so is literally dangerous to their mental and emotional health.

We need to train ourselves in the opposite direction. We need to learn to accept each other with a few little bumps and bobbles here and there. If you have criticism to offer, do so, but in a constructive way. And if the creator doesn’t agree, accept that. Accept that their work is just not your cup of tea, and move on with your day. You will be much happier and healthier for it, I promise.

One of my fandom friends was basically hounded out of the Voltron fandom with hate messages she got for one of her fics. The reason? Lance wasn’t Latino enough. Because he was singing showtunes with Blue instead of more “Latin” songs, I think was the crux of the complaints. Mind, this was before he was even revealed to be Cuban, so it was based entirely on fanon. This friend of mine is biracial and grew up in a mixed Latino family. Her godson is a gay Latino, and she based the characterization of Lance on him, because he loves showtunes and his relationship with his partner reminds her of Lance and Keith. The persecution of this friend of mine based on her artistic choices in a cute little ficlet about Lance and Blue having fun together still upsets me and breaks my heart. I want it to end.

I’m sorry if this little essay offended anyone. As I said, feel free to unfollow me if my stance makes you uncomfortable. I hold no grudges. But this is something I feel quite strongly about, and I’m not going to change. And congrats if you read this whole thing! It was quite a piece.

anonymous asked:

Asuna and Kirito suck as a couple. I don't understand why people like them together. Asuna is always one way or another in trouble and Kirito has to save her allllllllll the time.

I’m going to to have to stop you right there because it’s obvious you haven’t read the progressive novels or any of the other novels. So please, sit back and relax as I teach you a lesson and hopefully burn this into your brain and anyone else’s who don’t get it. I’ll pull two examples from the show and then from the novels.

(SPOILERS FOR LIGHT NOVELS 1-17 AND PROGRESSIVE 1-4)

Episode 14 and SAO Season 1 

DOES THIS NEED ANY EXPLANATION? Nobody can give me any bullshit on how Asuna didn’t save everyone in SAO. She literally jumped in front of Kayaba’s sword to protect Kirito and she ends up “dying”. 

If she didn’t do that, Kirito would have died and everyone would have to beat all the levels to 100 and then defeat Kayaba.

But that didn’t happen. Kirito was so desperate to meet Asuna in death that he ended up getting himself almost killed, then felt he should go out defeating the game, and then DOES.

It was an emotional rollercoaster to go through but hey, we made it.

Episode 21 SAO Season 1

Does this need explanation too? Asuna escaped her cage on her own in this scene. Yes, she gets caught and has to go back into her cage but she wasn’t willing to wait for someone to save her. She took initiative to get out and see Kirito and her life again. 

And yes, Kirito does ultimately save her but I believe that if he didn’t come when he did, Asuna would have tried again until she got out.

SAO Light Novel 10

LOOK AT MY BABY.

For some background with minimal spoilers: Kirito is stuck in a “game”. It’s not really a game.. you have to read the novels to completely understand and I don’t want to give too much away because it’s really interesting. 

But literally Asuna is a detective trying to find Kirito and SHE DOES. She skips school and lies to her parents so she can find him and stay with him until he gets out of the game and heals. This takes about 1 or 2 weeks.

SPOILER: She disguises herself to find out who stole Kirito away from his hospital in Volume 9 and placed him into the “game”. Why he is in the hospital is not for me to tell ..

She didn’t wait for him to turn up somewhere, so she is saving HIM.

THE BESTTTTTTTTT SCENE IN SAO HISTORY

MAJOR MAJOR SPOILERS:

Asuna has to go into the “game” Kirito is currently healing in because his soul is being destroyed. Kirito has so much guilt in his heart and is very depressed (about an event that happens that I can’t say because SPOILERS) and ultimately is destroying his own soul because of it. He can’t move or talk and so Asuna gets into the “game” in an effort to save him.

HIS FUCKING SOUL GUYS

So, to anyone who still thinks “Kirito saves Asuna all time” please message me so I can give you the full extreme of my lessons.

I didn’t have enough time to write all of them but anyway.. hope you learned something.

Soft Boy™ Derek Hale

There are many reasons why I think Derek Hale is a soft boy™ underneath all of his brooding and anger. These are my first headcanons and writing please be gentle with your criticisms.  

Originally posted by holyhalehottness

  • The way he dips his chin when he smiles like he’s embarrassed to show that he is happy. After all the bad things that have happened to him he doesn’t smile much so when he does he gets quite shy.
  • He likes having his hair played with it relaxes him to have someone touch him softly instead of hurting him.
  • Derek likes cooking like really enjoys it. Whether it for himself or for others, the smell of food coming from the oven or the stove fills him with warmth. 
  • He wants to keep everyone safe. He has grown such a close relationship with the pack. He’d be so upset if he lost them or if they got hurt because he would immediately blame himself. 
  • Derek knows the names of most flowers their meanings and their meanings in different colors.
  • When Derek was younger he was a total momma’s boy. He loved spending time with his mom. He would help her with food shopping and do other things to help his mom.
  • Even though his werewolf abilities keep him warm enough, Derek likes to sleep with a bunch of soft fluffy blankets. 
  • Derek likes candy like a lot. His favorite caramel. 
  • He smells warm like cinnamon when he isn’t running around fighting or sweating from training.
  • He’s really embarrassed about it but Derek really likes having his tummy rubbed. After an especially stressful and hard day. He just wants to lay down with you while you rub his tummy and stroke his hair until melts into the bed.
  • When Derek first wakes up he has terrible (-ly adorable) bed head. His hair is sticking in different directions. It’s matted down in the back and front of his head.
  • He really loves cuddling a lot. He likes the safety and comfort of being wrapped in another person’s arms. He has his head on your chest so he can listen to your heart beat. He’s the calmest at those moments.
  • He finds the fact that caring about you makes him the man he is now since it’s been so long since he cared for someone.
  • He’s been hurt so many times emotionally and from emotional abuse from Kate  and Peter makes him very soft. 
  • He likes watching Disney movies. His favorite movie is Lilo and Stitch because of how the characters are all a family even though they are all different. He thinks the pack is like that.

She paces around the room, searching hard for the right words to say.

“I don’t think he ever truly loved me,” she whispered. “If he did, he wouldn’t have been able to breathe as easily as he did when he left me.”

Her best friend paused for a while. She took a sip of her coffee and glanced at her broken best friend with relaxed eyes. “Then why did he say it so often, and with such certainty?”

“Because he was a dreamer,” she continued. “He knew how it would all go down. He continuously brought himself down and proved time and time again that he only wanted me for my body. He showed no effort. I cried every night for him because I wanted him to be okay and he never shed a single tear for me. He kept me not because he fought for me; but because every night he would whisper a breathless "I love you” and it would sweep me every time.“

"You fell for it.”

She felt uneasy. “He said I was the girl of his dreams,” she said, “but he made every day a nightmare.”

-Kara barely talks and is just staring at her a lot
-They both seem so happy

@doriardyn just takes the greatest photos of Ardyn and they were so nice to allow me to edit one of the shots they took! I just loooove all these photos, they show Ardyn in so many different perspectives and views you never get to see of him. Like this one.

So after the last one, have another “Older Ardyn”.

I don’t know why, editing Ardyn just relaxes me inbetween studying. And seeing him older and somewhat happy as the King he could have been makes me happy, too. It’s nice. Could have been so cool.

PDA

My chemical Romance preference. REVENGE ERA. (Ray, Mikey, Frank, Gerard) | request are open |
-

FRANK I.

Frank would love PDA. Everywhere you two went, he had to be holding you hand. If you two were waiting in line for coffee, he wouldn’t miss the opportunity to kiss you. At home, he would be more relaxed. He could cuddle with you, and tell you the million reasons why he loves you. If you weren’t so into PDA, Frank would hug you. When he would hug you he would whisper sweet nothings in your ear.

RAY T.

Ray wouldn’t show much. He would always |like Frank| would hold you hand, and constantly tell you how much he loves you. At home he wouldn’t be so shy. He would love to shower you in kisses and cuddles. To Ray, he loves when you blush at his actions.

MIKEY W.

Mikey would be shy. Hella shy. He would ask to hold your hand, and when he did he would be all nervous about it. Mikey always wants you to be comfortable. At home, he would try the cheesy things, like the fake yawn so he can put his arm around your shoulders. At home you and Mikey spend most of your free time cuddling. Cuddles were the one thing you both were addicted too.


GERARD W.

Gerard is cheeky when it comes to PDA. Lots of butt grabs. Yes, lots of dirty pick up lines and jokes. But he will do random kisses, things that he knows will make you smile. At home, PDA wasn’t around much, since you two were always goofing off. But when there is, Gerard spends the whole day showering you in affection.

anonymous asked:

I know that you are annoying about no malec sex scene(me too) but think about why they showed the jace scene, they wanted to show how lost jace really he is and he doesn't seem to care about anything but then later in the episode we see how he still cares about clary. also I'm hoping they didn't have sex and thats why they didn't show that scene.

No, no, Anon, don’t get me wrong. I am not annoyed about no Malec sex scene. I am annoyed how Malec had been written in that scene (since it was so important, it was their first time, jfc!) before it lead to them having sex. Because like I said before, I never needed a Malec sex scene to begin with, but I wanted to see them having some intimate and relaxed moments. And even those were robbed when you look back at the balcony scene.

Especially in regards of Jace hooking up with some random girl. Sorry, but this was unnecessary af. I know what they wanted to show us but when you take this scene and how much time they spent on it…. and then you look at the important Malec “sex scene”—sorry, but I am annoyed. Besides, they show us Jace’s fuckboy behavior during the “Hunter’s Moon” scenes, too, so they could have cut this short at Magnus’. It really wasn’t that important. We still understood that he is kinda lost rn and still hung up on Clary, thank you very much!
