JJ’s Crossing Himself Isn’t Religious

I’ve seen a couple of things about how JJ might be Catholic because of this:

and I’ve also seen a couple of people say that it’s weird because most Catholics don’t cross over the bellybutton (except for Russian Catholics, apparently), and the YOI staff probably messed something up there.

It’s not. A religion thing. Not this one. When I first saw him do this, my first thought was they did not just do that. The cross thing is actually a figure skating thing, although as far as I know, only one skater actually does it regularly.

That skater being none other than Yuzuru Hanyu, reigning Olympic and GPF champion, and the former World champion (current reigning Worlds Silver Medalist).

(watch the first couple of seconds) yeah i know they’re both purple that’s just an unfortunate coincidence i swear

Anyways Yuzu does the cross thing as an axis reminder: keep your back straight, shoulders perpendicular, arms tucked. He was asked that in an interview once and he said:

“That’s not a sign of the cross. The first vertical line is to check my vertical body line. The two horizontal lines I draw across my body are to straighten out my upper body core…“

tld;r: The staff know what they’re doing and JJ is reminding himself to stay on axis during his jumps.

Another Arc V ending

I mean, we could explore the ramifications of a horrific reality where Yuya and Yuzu have to live with three other people in their heads, Shun Kurosaki has his best friend and sister gone, and Reira Akaba is still a baby and we can go into depth about how Leo gets a family back and suffers minimal to no consequences.

Or we can write an actual happy ending.

Because this is Yugioh and I demand everyone gets a good end. Everyone.


The silhouette reached out to him.

Yuya’s heart momentarily stopped in his chest.

Someone is gonna be mad and “mecha-kuyaashi” for months.

Anyone can have a off day really. And today, definitely one of those days for some of the men.

It’s funny though, usually Yuzu is very strong for his SP. Yet, he looked…more nervous and tense than usual. Somewhat….dejected.

Probably because he wanted to do so much (the event is in Japan afterall), but something in him wasn’t quite kicking in.

But all-in-all, this means he’s gonna be training hard for his upcoming skating season, because his disappointments will be converted into good ol’ Hanyu fire fuel.

What happens to all the Plushies that skater get!

Here is a little video that explains what happens to all the plushies from the official #helsinki2017 Facebook page!

Most of the vid is about Yuzu’s Plushies though!

Yuzu wants all the postcards and greetings and plushies will be donated to a charity project for children!
(It does not say if he keeps some of the plushies and presents!)


When she comes home, Yuzu finds the TV on.

It’s one of Yusho’s earlier duels, back when Entertainment Dueling had just taken off and was first being accepted by the public.  As great as they all are though, she has trouble recalling more details then those few.  Her mind’s so fuzzy from the long day, all she can think about is why this thing was left on in the first place.

She turns around to see Yuya sprawled on the couch and sighs.

So that’s why.

He’s still in his day clothes, the only difference being a bit of drool staining his t-shirt.  On the coffee table ahead, more and more dvd’s are scattered around.  It seems either he planned to spend the rest of the day watching these duels or was simply caught up in their magic and lost track of the time.

Either way though, Yuzu is in a good enough humor to coddle him some.  She darts into the storage closet and pulls out a giant quilt blanket Yoko gifted to them.  As she goes to work tucking him in, making sure he was all snug and secure, a light groan passes from his lips.

“Yuzu…”  Red eyes blink slowly.

“You can go back to sleep, Yuya.”  Gently she cups his cheek.

“No…”  He moves to sit up.  “Need to tell you something…”  

“What is it?” His arms hang around her neck weakly.

He looks completely lost in thought as he studies her features–like the secrets of the universe could be unlocked the curve of her lip if he gazed at it long enough.  Then with a shaky breath he whispers two words in a small voice.

“Don’t go…”

“Don’t go?”  It’s hardly a complicated sentence, but she can’t help but repeat it in confusion.  Where else would she be than here?

“Dreamed you were…”  It’s hard to tell whether he runs out of energy to finish the sentence or simply can’t bring himself to voice it.  Instead he seems more interested in trailing sleepy kisses down the side of her face.  “…just stay…don’t go.”

It’s easy enough to read between the lines, and besides Yuya knows just how to charm her, even when half-asleep.  As discretely as she can, Yuzu kicks off her shoes and snuggles under the blankets with him.  With a quick peck on the lips, she settles herself on his chest–ear pressed to listen to his heartbeat.

“I’m not going anywhere.”  Out of any of the four dimensions, there was no place she rather be.


This took so long to make……

Finally I have finished the biggest project that I have ever worked on, and I meant it this picture is huge. (but anyway…)

I give to you all the bracelets girl dressed as their ace monsters, this drawing was based on a post saying something about the girls decks having a musical pattern or something like that. ( I cant find the original post so I might have explain this wrong)

Yuzu: Melodious- orchestrates or creates the music

Rin: Wind Witch- Plays the instruments or creates the background sounds

Ruri: Lyrical Luciana- Sings to the Music

Selena: Moonlight- Dances to the Music

So basically the girls are performing what their specific decks are supposed to represent or something like that.

I think this is my favorite drawing since the 1920′s headband drawing I did.

(I obviously love how I draw ruri but yuzu comes as a close second)

I hope you all like it


anonymous asked:

Yuzu is quite femenine sometimes or that is what people say... what do you think about that? Is that normal in Japan? Here Spain , people call gay to femenine guys, so my family cant underestand my love for Yuzu

I understand there’s a difference in culture and each culture appreciates certain attributes oppose to others. So, I’m not gonna judge you.

Here’s a small run down:

Truth is, Yuzu’s outward attitude and personality kind of shifts depending on what language he speaks in.

He appears to be more feminine when he is speaking English, but that’s probably because he’s picked up on some mannerisms from his coaches, who are gay. 

[ Note: No, I don’t believe that every gay guy speaks a certain way, nor does speaking a certain way necessarily make someone gay, unless that person says they are gay. ]

So, though Yuzu may seem like he has feminine mannerisms when he is speaking English, it does not mean he is gay. 

In contrast, Yuzu is quite normal when he is speaking Japanese because there are ways for him within the Japanese language to project a masculine image for himself.

In Japan, he isn’t regarded as feminine than to say he is endearing and cute. Sure, among Japanese men, he may not be considered “manly” per say, and he has expressed this sentiment before, but he certainly does carry the pride of a Japanese man and this would make him a manly patriotic figure in the eyes of the Japanese public.

But to be honest, regardless of what you’re family thinks, if you like Yuzu and you like him for who he is, then you shouldn’t weigh others’ opinions over your own.

If they can’t appreciate it, you can’t force them to. I know it’s going to suck not being able to openly express your thoughts and feelings about Yuzu, but what can you do?

This is what online communities and fanbases are for.
