Bighit: so do y’all prefer like colourfull clothes and crazy suits or maybe some cgi of like animals or we can just throw some random filters in or add a whole lot of dancers or some shit what do y’all think
So I was thinking about the scene in the tv series where Crowley responds to Aziraphale saying he’s “nice” by pushing him up against the wall. In the book the reaction is more subdued- possibly embarrassed but certainly more offhand. He’s annoyed but not angry.
When I first saw it my immediate thought was “ah, obviously an excuse to push Aziraphale against the wall. Very good, very gay.” But, while that is an excellent reason it also doesn’t feel 100% correct.* It is a fairly extreme reaction to something that, at most, deserved an angry snarl.
So, I got to thinking about why they may have interpreted it differently in the adaption. Crowley describes, multiple times, how he was essentially in the wrong place at the wrong time when he fell. A member of that group but not an instigator. It wasn’t a conscious choice to rebel, really. Much of the evil he does is annoying, things that make everyday life worse but they’re not as outright diabolical as many of the demons. He makes people lose faith but a lot of it isn’t done directly.
He’s a demon, it’s his job. And I use the term job here quite literally. He has to make reports to the head office, presumably that means there’s at least some kind of punishment for not doing anything- though discorporation is likely to be a last resort, I’m sure Hell can come up with all sorts of nasty things.
So Crowley isn’t truly evil and, importantly, he knows this. I’d say at worst he’s a rebel without a cause. He rebelled against heaven and against hell in about the same measure. He’s not really bad enough to be a demon or good enough to be an angel.
So where does this reaction fit in? Crowley knows if he was really “nicer” he wouldn’t be a demon. He doesn’t ENJOY being a demon, unlike his fellows. Hell is an awful, cramped place. The demons enjoy torturing each other and revel in cruelty. I don’t think he likes a single one of his “co-workers”. If not for a small twist of fate he could have remained in heaven. He knows that if he hadn’t fallen he could have been Aziraphale’s friend/lover/whatever this whole time. He wouldn’t have had to create a complicated scheme (the Arrangement) to interact with him. If he were only as “nice” as Aziraphale thinks he is maybe he could have avoided all of this. It’s an anger born of regret.**
TL;DR Crowley is not angry about being called nice, he’s angry that it doesn’t mean anything
*The Doylist explanation here is that it was to mirror Uriel in that scene by the bookshop. Which is excellent, directing-wise. But that’s not an in-universe explanation.
Can you imagine being friends with Stray Kids though? Like, imagine being able to goof around with them. Imagine teasing Jisung for doing something dumb. Imagine speaking English with Chan and Felix, and laughing at the other members when they get annoyed that they can’t understand you. Imagine being able to yell at Chan to sleep when he’s staying up too late. Imagine cuddling with Jeongin during movies or hiding behind Hyunjin when you get scared. Imagine showing Minho pictures of your cats, and seeing him smile softly when he thinks of his. Imagine hugging Woojin whenever you want to and having his arms wrapped around you. Imagine being able to have long talks with Seungmin where you talk about both everything and nothing for hours on end. Imagine working out with Changbin, and challenging him to contests where you know you can’t win but try anyway. Imagine playing around with Felix and blaming him when something goes wrong, even though it was totally your fault. Just… Imagine being friends with skz.

Why? Sure, we’re all curious about Viktor’s backstory etc., but there’s something else.
Seeing Viktor skate.
This was a thought that occurred to me quite a while ago, actually. If you think about it, we’ve never actually seen Viktor skate.
Let me explain - you see, we’ve seen Viktor skating a bunch of times in the anime. Most notably, of course, Stammi Vicino. Which is, essentially, one of the most beautifully animated sequences of the entire anime. So let’s break it down.
The series literally opens on Viktor skating. However, it’s not really a routine, it’s a mini montage that Yuuri narrates over.
Of course, during the OPs, then again, it’s not really a routine at all, and he’s not alone.
Briefly this, but there’s no music, and Yuuko is talking over the scene
Of course, this absolute work of ART
And obviously the glory that was the exhibition
Note that I am skipping out a couple of training scenes with Yuuri and Yurio for sake of too many screenshots, but they still apply to this
Not once, in our current canon, have we seen Viktor Nikiforov in a full, uninterrupted routine
I’m not counting Stammi Vicino, because the routine wasn’t ABOUT Viktor’s skating, it was far more about Yuuri. Which is fair enough, because he’s our protagonist. We see Yuuri and the other characters skate, so that we can fall in love with them, get inspired, just like we do with real skaters.
But it’s a little odd, right? We hear so much from Yuuri and others about how great Viktor is, a living legend. But we’ve never actually seen it. And that’s why we need this movie.
To fully understand Yuuri, to deepen our understanding of his character and relate to him, we need the chance to fall in love with Viktor too, in the same way he did. Through skating. So, that’s why I’m so excited for this movie, because finally, we get to see the legend skate.
Nell: hey guys, i’m still being haunted by that house that all of you were haunted by. And, might i add, you guys are still haunted by it as well. so, you know, the only reason you’re calling me crazy is because maybe you don’t want to recognize your own pain and are instead calling me crazy to feel better about yourself?
Luke: Guys, she’s right.
Everyone: Well, a drug addict agrees with her so she must be crazy.
