Viktor’s Final Goodbye to Figure Skating: Two Yuris and Two World Records

Alternatively titled: English Major With Nothing Better To Do With Her Life Overanalyzes Things (finals??? haha what are those)

Now, for the sake of sparing you time because this meta is going to get long as hell, here’s the gist right now: I’m thinking 1. Yuuri’s going to take Viktor’s World Record in the Free Skate and 2. Viktor’s never going to go back to competitive skating again. 

Now, am I right about this? Who the fuck knows! Is that going to stop me from writing a god damn essay about it? No. No it is not. So. Let’s begin:

Okay, so I know people have talked about it before (a lot), but the OP is the crowning jewel of both this show and my theory, so bear with me. 

One of the most interesting things about the OP is that, despite being sung by one singer, it’s generally agreed that the different parts of the OP are “sung” by different characters. The OP starts off with someone talking about how they’re “tired of feeling” like they’re “never enough,” and Yuuri’s shown on screen. Then, Viktor shows up on screen and the lyrics are about encouraging someone to believe in themselves. That is, Viktor encouraging Yuuri to believe in himself. Basically, the main idea here is that skater on screen = who’s singing the current lyrics.

SO THEN:

Yuri shows up! And Yuuri’s on screen with him! And the lines are “Don’t stop us now, the moment of truth, we were born to make history.”

There are two singers in this part! In fact, go listen to the song right now and you’ll notice that there are literally two singers in this part (a background vocalist joins in on this line). So the “we” is Yuri and Yuuri, and they’re both singing about how they’re going to “make history” during “the moment of truth” (aka the Grand Prix Finals). 

Well, guess who just made history by blasting Viktor Nikiforov’s SP record out of the water?

Over the past few months, we’ve been given the gift of numerous trailers for The Lego Batman Movie. Just in case you decided to skip the year 2014, the gist of it is this: The Lego Movie was tremendously popular, partly due to the fact that it had a killer soundtrack, and also partly due to Chief Secretary of Hilarity Will Arnett’s voice acting of Lego Batman. Combining “blustering idiot” with “deteriorating rock star,” Arnett primed us for a spinoff movie from his first piece of dialogue. And since money exists, we’re getting that spinoff.

It also means that we’re finally getting a Batman movie that’s free to be, well, fun.

Now, at this point, saying that your favorite superhero is Batman is like saying that your favorite coffee is Starbucks and your favorite holiday was high-school prom. It seems almost innocent to do so. Of course he’s your favorite. Considering that most mainstream superhero entertainment is focused on him, it’s hard for a lot of people to have any other favorite. And when snobbish fans hear that he’s your favorite, they react in the same way that the one kid who’d been to Europe before college reacted when he heard that you’d never left the Southeast. “Oh, Batman? He’s okay, I guess. But have you ever had … BOOSTER GOLD?”

And if Batman is your favorite and all you’ve seen are his movies, that’s cool. I’m not going to invent a problem by telling you that you’re a piece of shit because you’re within driving distance of a theater. But people who have deemed Batman their Bat Lord and Bat Savior, like me, have often done it because of the well-kept secret that Batman kicks a lot of ass in his non-movie ventures as well. My personal favorite incarnation is Batman: The Animated Series, which did a great job of balancing gritty crime stories with bare-chested sword fights against immortal eco-terrorists.

‘Lego Batman’ May Be The Most Pure 'Batman’ Ever

anonymous asked:

Do you know anything about SHINee's sexual harassment issues going on right now? I saw an article about potential twitter users getting sued but nothing has really been translated into English :(

(sexual harassment tw) the full details aren’t known (though @shineetalks will be translating something on it in the next few days), but the general gist of what’s going on: there’s been a lot of issues over the last year involving antis sexually harassing shinee online. most of the harassment has been on instagram and twitter (especially the latter) and involved material from fansites being taken. from what i’ve heard: fansites have been dealing with it for months and trying to compile evidence against the people most actively around but it blew up in the last week after jonghyun apologized for the homophobic comment that he never actually said. (the person / group that accused him of saying it are rumored to be some of the people who are frequently involved in the harassment.) they were actively making tweets related to it at the start of the week which i-fans caught on to / were confused by because absolutely no context was out at that point, and… yeah.

there’s a lot more to it than that but, like said, full details aren’t known yet. i-fans are still kind of in the dark about it, but they became more curious yesterday when kpopfans translated a pann article about sm possibly taking legal action against those harassing shinee. that’s all i really know but when @shineetalks finishes their translation on it i’ll post it here.

58) Kankri wakes up with a jolt. He seems to have returned home. He can hear his brother urging him to get up. And he can also feel the dampness in his eyes.

59) As he is making himself look presentable, Kankri is looking all over the living room, trying to find the Nutcracker, his mind still filled with the events of the previous night. The toy is nowhere to be seen, leaving Kankri to feel incredibly uneasy. The boy cannot get the young man from the dream (?) out of his head.

Still restless, he overhears one of the children talking to someone in the foyer. It’s Uncle Drosselmeyer! Frantic, Kankri rushes over to ask the inventor about the fate of the Nutcracker.

60) However, he halts as soon as he reaches the foyer, his heart skipping a beat. Uncle Drosselmeyer notices and greets the boy, saying they have been expecting him. He introduces Cronus Ampora, his older nephew, who’d just come back from the military service for Christmas break. The dapper young man beside the clockmaker approaches the boy, as Drosselmeyer introduces the latter to him.

61) “hello, Kankri.”

62) “Hell9… Nutcracker.”

Just A Shout Out

Do the people at the controls of Arrow, WM, MG…  and the list goes on, think that they can write their stories solely based on ratings.  (WM on Olicity—”we’ll play it by ear on where that will go.”) Paraphrasing of course, but you get the gist. Do they not have the same numbers we have, like the percentage of Olicity fans vs the percentage of comic fans, or just the general public numbers?

if they do, maybe they should look more closely at those Olicity numbers again. Do they not hear the screams of the faithful? Have they forgotten the chemistry that ignited the show? Did they forget they’re the force that created Olicity in the first place? Does lightning in a bottle mean nothing to them?

Am I ranting? The numbers say yes.

Are we as fans only numbers now to them? if so, remember that there is strength in numbers.

Let me give you the gist: while I work all day what I get paid can hardly cover all my bills and I got myself on a pickle. I crashed my dad’s car (it’s my curse, crashing cars) and while it was not something huge there was another car involved and now I am panicking in how the math is going to play in the next few months, so I decided to ask tumblr for help. I couldn’t find a single donation site like go fund me or even pay pal me that works in Brazil, but I can use paypal if you guys provide me an email and a value you would like to donate me so I can make a ‘payment request’

Any amount will help me out a lot.

I know its too much work but it’s the only way I found to do this (if you know something better please hit me up!) but if you could help a brother out I will be forever grateful and If I ever find a way to repay you, I will.

OK well here’s the summary for Chapter 14 of Killing Stalking for u anon and @chinas lmao, which isnt actually out in English yet but eh. Might be less accurate but you’ll probably get the same gist.

Anyways so now it cuts to Sangwoo going to Bum’s apartment posing as another interested tenant. He curves the gross land person who asks if he has a GF or something LOL and hands him a wad of cash as rent for him to go away, and then starts to pack up Bum’s clothes and stuff. He also finds Bum’s rubber dildo :^)))

After that he returns and teases Bum about the dildo and gives him his “gifts” which are his clothes and crutches! He forces Bum to use them, and then takes him out to his car. There’s a weird scene where he like, cuddles up with Bum and Bum is visibly freaked out and they go shopping. During this time Sangwoo’s all like “is this sweater good on me or nah"and they go into the fitting rooms, where i think he then sends Bum out for another size of the jumper or whatever.

Bum then cant find Sangwoo,and proceeds to freak out, wandering all over calling for Sangwoo, and is getting super desperate and everything (the stockholm getting worse..? Who knows) and has one of his weird hallucination where when he looks into a rack of clothes Sangwoo is there watching him. Meanwhile Sangwoo is actually on the other side of the store, listening to him and goes and fetches him.

You then see that he’s texting his friends and the messages are like “oh yeah a new friend? Does he drink alcohol” and he’s like “yeah i want you guys to meet him im gonna bring him to the festival” and the chapter ends there.

Idk what the festival is it’s either actually gonna be normal party or some freaky prostitution ring. That’s my call. Anyways chapter 15 when..

Can we talk about how white washed the Pagan and Wicca community is?

All the aesthetic you ever see is of white women tromping around a foggy forest. Gods and goddesses are drawn as white- even Egyptian ones. Pictures of white people are used as god and goddess aesthetic.

Can we stop? Why are we letting blatant racism bleed into this group of people?

Not to mention the cultural appropriation of:

Shamanism (a closed tribe and religion)

Hoodoo (a closed practice)

Santeria (also closed)

Voodoo

Bindis

Smudging (a native american practice)

Dream Catchers

(I’m probably leaving out a lot more, but you get the gist.)

Also:

“Gypsy” (a racial slur of the romani AND the roma- sinti who were victims in THE HOLOCAUST for goodness sake)


SO CAN WE STOP NOW?

I would really like the difficulty level of finding a diverse aesthetic collage or god/ goddess illustration to go down by, like, 50%.

Thnx

just kill me i need to get the feels out so i can work

Just dating Nero things:

Originally posted by andyacklesspn

  • This lovable loser picks fights with every-fucking-thing, okay? If you’re the kind of person to do the same thing then go and have fun fighting things together because what is life if you can’t fight stuff? If you’re more patient then you’re lucky Nero loves you so much because you’re literally the only person who can talk him down from fighting the things. Like legit, the look Dante gives you when you’re like “Please don’t fight right now” and Nero just sneers at him before doing as he’s asked is like pure awe. Wow.
  • Speaking of Dante, be ready for him to bug you a lot. He does it because it pisses Nero off. Like, for sure you and Nero are a thing, but Dante flirts with you in a way that constantly pushes Nero’s buttons. If you’re really frustrated by it, Dante will get the gist and not bug you anymore, but if it looks like you’re just tolerating him then he’ll keep going until Nero punches him in the face and they have a fist fight or something, I don’t know.
  • Nero can get really defensive about somethings. He’s kind of self conscious about his right arm when it comes to you. He’s scared you’ll turn around and say the demonic side of him terrifies or you or that you lied and it bothers you after all. Some days he’ll seem jumpy or distant and its just him struggling to come to terms with that fact that you do not mind being with him. Just leave him alone for a bit. If you push him to talk or interact he’ll most likely get aggressive before feeling more guilty and running off to disappear for a bit.
  • This dumb dork really sucks at flirting. He’s not a natural like Dante and coupled with the fact that he genuinely likes you, Nero is just a really cute mess when he tries to impress you. He can’t even give you a gift properly. Instead he just leaves it in places where he knows you’ll find it and when you see him to thank him he just plays it off like it’s no big deal or he just saw it randomly and got it for you. It doesn’t matter how obscure the thing is, when you grill him about where he got it from, he’s just like “I just got lucky and found it, okay? Drop it.”
  • Bad at flirting doesn’t mean he’s awful at being affectionate though. You just gotta recognise what affection looks like when it comes from him. It’s things like how sometimes you catch him looking at you and then turning away and pretending he wasn’t. Or how he quietly eats whatever food you cook for him, no matter how good or bad it actually is. Or like how whenever you go out and you get scared from a noise or something he’ll grab your hand right away. Sometimes he’ll just grab your hand for no reason to be honest and pretend he’s not doing it. He pretends he doesn’t do a lot of things, he’s an idiot.
  • But lets be real, his hugs are the best. Hug your boyfriend as much as you can. Nero will sometimes complain and whinge about how ‘clingy’ you are, but note that he never refuses to hold you if you ask or hug him first. It’s always warm, welcoming and secure and if you fall asleep in his arms, you’ll magically wake up all tucked into bed safe and sound.
  • No, but seriously you’ll be watching Nero and Dante fight a lot. They might even ask you to keep score, so enjoy that.

JK: So that’s the gist of it. These are the individuals I spent most of my time with and work with. I hope this answered your question hyung and I hope you best of wishes in wherever you may reside.

On The BBC

Ok, some things you guys might need to know about the BBC. Because some of you, especially non-Brits, have a very wrong understanding about it. It is not this progressive beacon by any stretch.

Background: In our country we have Labour (was centre left, sort of like Hilary, now going left again with Corbyn, like Sanders), and the Conservatives (right wing). I’m simplifying but you get the gist.

Conservatives have been in power since 2010, originally as part of a coalition, then as a majority. They hate the BBC, pretending it’s about money and texes and shit, but actually because truth errs towards the left. 

The BBC is now run by ex high up Conservatives, people married to high up Conservatives, and some ex head bankers iirc.

If you’ve got to watch BBC news, you might have noticed in the last few years it’s becoming increasingly more right wing, with tone, choices of what to report etc.

Shows have been doing a similar thing, such as one that had people compete to do minimum wage jobs, whittling them down to a winner who would recieve the prize of a year’s living wage. Sit and parse that. I’ll wait.

I believe, if there is nothing else, that Sherlock was not allowed to continue with their original story, and that they decided they’d rather burn it down as a statement to prove that there is a need and a gap for the story they want to tell. I’d suggest they’re betting that f it doesn’t get picked up for Series 5, they didn’t get to pick up new writers and half ass something, and if it does get picked up, it will be with the allowance to tell their story cus you saw how that went last time.

As to why they wouldn’t openly criticise the BBC, that’s easy (and if you’ve been reading Mark’s tweets carefully, you’ll see that he has been having subtle digs for a while). The BBC is in constant danger of getting shut down, you have no idea how bad it is. The idea behind the BBC is vital, the independent broadcaster etc. Unfortunately it’s not been independent for a VERY long time. Now people are starting to wonder if it’s worth tacitly supporting more right wing garbage, but keeping the foundations for the future, or speaking out against what’s happening. All this while they are still one of the biggest media employers. Most are staying quiet and fighting in other ways, like they’re doing in the NHS (the UK’s free healthcare), because the root is worth keeping.

Slowly eating away at a service to make it worse and to stop people’s support of it, is what the conservatives do. It’s their MO. It’s why they chronically underfund the NHS to ‘prove it isn’t working’.

I would absolutely believe that their story had been shut down. I’m not saying it’s true, but I am saying that the situation with the BBC is a long way from that old LGB report, and has been for quite some while, and I need all of you to understand that.

Yo, I made another ask blog. :D

To tell you the main gist, basically each month this blog will have a new AU. This blog is for me to become more active in drawing as well as get better at it. As you can see, the first AU will be SCHOOL (high school in particular). I chose SCHOOL first because it’s the most basic AU and I knew it was probably going to come up eventually so I might as well just do it now. 

Because my asks will probably not be colored (mostly) and it’s hard to differentiate the members in my drawings, I will be using different shapes/badges(?) in different colors so you know who’s who. 

Namjoon: Purple bear (cause Ryan and Brown, etc..)

Jin: Pink heart (for obvious reasons) 

Yoongi: Blue music note (also obvious reasons)

Hoseok: Orange sun/star thing (cause he’s our sun)

Jimin: Green flower (cause he’s a cute flowerboy type dude)

Taehyung: Yellow triangle (cause he’s part of the illuminati idk what to do)

Jungkook: Red bunny (cause he’s a cute bun bun)

Anywho, that’s pretty much it! Because you might have a different time zone as me, I’ll just post whenever the month’s AU is over! (Even though there would only be like a day difference.. >.>) Thank you for reading and I hope you will enjoy my blog! :]

45 maybe? ... or 47 if you don't want to give away blatant spoilers...

24. Favorite scene you’ve ever written
Answered!

45. share the synopsis of a story that you haven’t published yet
I have a oneshot I’m hanging onto for… reasons, but the gist of it is that Hinata wakes up from a sexy dream and gets into even sexier situations with nearby bystander/roommate/boyfriend Kageyama

47. how many unfinished ideas/stories are you working on at the same time?
Usually 2 - 3; I would’ve been at 2, now that HOTJ is done, but I’m back to 3… though that’s because I’m picking another longer project back up! And that number may increase when I begin to work on polishing up Kinktober. (But those are more or less completed, with a few significant exceptions.)


More “asks for fic writers”!

Crossed out are answered already!

give me carmilla speaking 12 different languages. give me carmilla teaching laura some of those langauges, starting with french and german, which laura already knows bits and pieces of but not nearly enough to keep up with carmilla. give me carmilla saying things in relatively rudimentary french, and laura saying, “i know you said something about an apple, but what was the rest of it?” and carmilla patiently, amusedly repeating the sentence back to her in english. laura making progress and understanding more and more, so that carmilla starts quoting french poetry at her but refusing to translate the couple words or phrases that laura’s missing because “you should be able to get that by now, cutie”; laura blushing anyway because she understands enough to get the gist (and then teasing carmilla for being a giant sap). carmilla saying really raunchy things in german while they’re in public, just to see laura get all flustered. the two of them switching to french mid-conversation for the sake of privacy in front of other people. carmilla making some comment in german and laura responding in english, understanding each other perfectly. give me the subtleties and nuances of phrases unique to every lanuage, give me a new level of communication and understanding, give me my multi-lingual world-travelling power couple

Sometimes I can’t help but feel angry at the frivolity of the world around me. The cult of celebrity is so pointless and meaningless in the grand scheme of things meanwhile there’s vast inequality and innumerable horrors occurring worldwide. I understand that for myself, in my comfy life in a middle class American family that it’s uncomfortable to engage with such horrors. It can do a number on the psyche to be faced with such things. There so much I want to do in this world and it’s hard not to feel helpless sometimes. That’s why I try to transfer the anger I feel towards others in my life who get carried away in meaningless distractions into trying to help others. It’s small actions that add up to make big change.
