i’ll probably never polish this up so here’s the barebones:
[ID: Yamato and Sai approach a campfire, around which Kakashi, Sakura, and Naruto are all huddled under blankets, looking uncomfortable and exhausted, perhaps slightly ill. Naruto sneezes loudly.
“Like teacher, like students, I suppose,” Yamato says, failing to keep a hint of smugness out of his expression while Sai beams amiably at his comrades. “You should learn to pace yourself.”
“Don’t you lecture me.” Kakashi says. “When’s the last time YOU took a vacation?”
Yamato looks taken aback by this for a second, and sai glances up at him, surprised.
Yamato’s expression flattens into a blank mask before he responds. “I take plenty of vacations, all the time.” Sai is looking at him curiously now.
“Coward, quit hiding behind that face. You’re just as bad at self care as I am,” Kakashi says.
“I am not.” Yamato says.
Unmoved, Kakashi continues, “I bet the last time you took a break was my final anbu hospitalization.”
“Can you even hear yourself?” Yamato asks.
In the background, Sai is holding a hand to his chin. “Nobody has said that I’m bad at “self” “care,”“ He thinks. “Perhaps..I am the best at “self” “care.”“

the thing about s11, in terms of gallavich, is that despite it not being up to standard, despite stupid storylines and somewhat unsatisfying resolutions sometimes, i still think that overall it was worth having bc it didn’t ruin gallavich, if anything it just showed how solid and stable their relationship is, especially compared to how it was in the past.
from their conflict about money we got to see how important it was for ian to be a provider and how much he wanted to save money so they could move out, get their own place and officially start their life together. we also saw how much mickey cared about ian when he tried to get a ‘normal’ job bc he wanted him to, and when he tried to cheer him up by getting him to join him on his security job when he noticed how down ian was after losing his job; from their ‘who’s the man of the relationship’ conflict, no matter how you feel about such gems as ‘dirty convict’, ‘jonas loving slut’, ‘dom top daddy’ and ‘uber masculine slut’, you could say they have a good healthy sex life (no kinkshaming, you do your thing boys) and the end of the ep showed their willingness to compromise, be open to new things, and give each other what the other wants during sex while still enjoying themselves; even the whole ‘sex with others’ thing in ep 7, whether you’re into that or hate it, whether you think it’s ooc or not, the most important thing is they’re in this *together*. they clearly had talks about it which means healthy communication and setting boundaries respected by both, and they’re open to experimenting (more of that good sex life mentioned before) but even then nothing is more important to them than each other and their relationship hence why they’re only willing to do it *together*.
so tl;dr ofc i wish some things had been done differently, i wish there’d been less arguing and fighting, i wish there’d been more happy sweet moments (we were robbed of their honeymoon phase, again!), i wish there’d been better conflicts that had been explored and dealt with better....but s11 gave us ian being a good husband who’s obsessed with keeping mickey safe and out of prison, who wants to build a home and start a life with him together, who comforts him when bad shit happens, who just wants him to have nice things and a better life like he deserves. and it gave us mickey being a good husband who loves ian more than anything, who wants to provide for him (even if his ways are not the most legal), who notices when ian’s feeling down and tries to snap him out of his bad mood and give him something to do, who wants to work with him (as if they don’t spend enough time together already), who wants to be a good man better than his dad ever was, who’s willing to pretend everything’s ok so as not to ruin ian’s happiness, who’s willing to struggle and fight his own insecurities and fears and push his limits in order for ian to be happy and have his dreams (for the both of them!) become a reality. and even in those more shall we say questionable storylines they had this season, you can still find something good and positive about gallavich, and ultimately the fact that all those arguments and conflicts eventually ended with them being happy and in love? it just shows how soild they are and how low the stakes have become, bc just like noel said, they truly are UNBREAKABLE.

It’s so wild I was just thinking about this Disc Horse™️✨ I saw a little bit ago where people were saying that watching a show and focusing on the ships is problematic and I just... I’m actually really interested to see how far they’ll go with this??
Like, in this day and age finding love and exploring relationships in a way that doesn’t hurt anyone and makes you happy is what keeps some people alive, y’know?? And in the end it isn’t like a cartoon is a piece of classic literature being studied in school. Sometimes all you wanna do is look at two characters and go ‘hehe I would like to draw them holding hands’ and that’s okay!!
And it’s interesting to see just how many harmless things some people in fandoms will label as ‘problematic’ just because they don’t like something. Broski it’s okay to be annoyed when your fandom doesn’t focus on the platonic ships as much but that’s your problem and you can’t force the other people in the fandom to make art of what you want. That’s the beauty of art, babey... ya wanna see characters being so in love?? You got it!! And if you want people to focus on a certain platonic pairing or on a different aspect of the source material your basic options are to either commission someone or to make your own stuff.
But finding something completely harmless and labelling it as problematic just because you don’t like it... does NOT sit well with me and it’s really sucky that I’m seeing it more and more.

RuneScape is legit taking the piss, can finally log into my account again after a full month of being locked out due to their fuck-up and I get redirected to this page
Latest updates according to the thing are ARCHEOLOGY AND ANACHRONIA jesus christ mates that’s OVER A YEAR AGO how long did you expect this to take
Anyway, no longer locked out, it’s a good day, only had a slightly messed up bank upon logging in and no other apparent bugs, just kinda wish this wasn’t the last day of my week off.
