This gif set has come down my dash multiple times and Indigo even tagged me in it. I…I need it big time.

So, uhh, ya’ll heard of the anime “Yuri on Ice”? I heard some pretty good things about it, though I don’t have the means to watch it (it’s probably on Netflix, which I don’t have). I do imagine that I will, though, because Amarie’s favorite sport ever is actually professional figure skating. No joke, no lie. And this scene right here?

So I treasure having found these idioms.

Now, see, if all the elves in Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings series looked like this, I just might be able to get into it.

Domestic, happy Disney femslash featuring Tiana. That is all.
