2008 cup

I guess it’s time to bring this back.

This illustration was drawn by Yana back in 2008:

And this is a panel from the latest chapter (ch126):

I’m not saying these are the same photo, but it’s good to keep in mind that Yana has had the idea of the “burnt family photo” since 2008 :D

U-20: 24 Goals 35 Caps

In her stint as a principal forward for the U-20 and U-23 USWNTs from 2006-2009, KO scored more goals than Alex, A-Rod and Press combined, and is tied with Syd (24 goals in 39 caps).

Jersey numbers 10, 19, 17 & 21. Pics from 2007 U-20 World Cup, Concacaf Cup, 2008 Pan-American Games qualifiers etc…

Technically not a statistical tie with Syd if you include the formula. Hate to quibble cuz I love Syd way too much, but if you add Syd’s caps for CANWNT, she has 24 goals in 41 caps as a U-20 to KO’s 24 goals in 35 caps. Add that to KO’s parallel achievements at the Stanford Cardinal, where she led the team in scoring in 3 out of her 4 years there, and led the the nation in goals (26) and points (65) as a senior in 2009. As a pure offensive starter, the case for her being the dominant collegiate and USWNT youth-development player of the late ‘aughts, is pretty good. And all without a NCAA D1—nor a U-20 championship—especially when you consider that UNC won three titles in the same period. As Bruins, Syd and Lauren Cheney come the closest…and if they played Press more as a U-20/23.

Top 10 longest fics posted on AO3 this month

1. Yours is the Earth (Hold On, Hold On) by @chickenlivesinpumpkin [E, 127.1k]

When they first meet after the end of the war, Draco doesn’t want anything to do with Harry. But as time goes by, Draco’s growing love may be the only thing that can save them both, because after a serious accident in the Forbidden Forest, Draco’s personality begins to undergo subtle changes. At first, Harry credits this to a new enthusiasm for life. But as the days pass and Draco’s behavior becomes more and more mysterious, Harry begins to suspect that something bigger–and darker–is at work. 

2. Dragon Kissed by Zakaira [E, 100.8k]

Draco Malfoy, after losing most of his family, has retreated to a cave in the middle of a dragon reserve, in the hopes of receiving the kiss of the dragon spirits. He succeeds, but when a terrorist organization takes over the reserve putting his life in danger, Harry Potter comes to his rescue. Only Draco doesn’t want to go and is clearly hiding something. Matters are complicated when Draco is kissed a second time. Can Harry discover what is really going on with Draco and the dragon spiritualism that everyone in the reserve seems to believe in? 

3. Choices of the Heart by Naadi [T, 78.6k]

Immediately after defeating Voldemort, Harry begins to have strange dreams, dreams that pull him once more into the realm of the newly dead. At first, the dreams are only a curious mystery, and Harry sets about putting his life back in order after the war. But when Harry dreams of Narcissa Malfoy, his life suddenly goes in a much different direction than the one he’d always imagined.

4. The Art of Our Necessities by dcfg21 [E, 52.6k]

After being Turned by a vampire, Harry descends into reckless and dangerous behavior. The Ministry and the Vampire Council devise a way to keep the former Savior on a leash, and his fangs to himself, by forcing him to take a Consort. 

5. The Auror Method by Lomonaaeren [M, 43k]

Draco has constructed the perfect cover for his activities as a con-man specializing in thefts from a distance: Draco Malfoy, the redeemed Death Eater and Recluse of Malfoy Manor. But now there’s evidence that some people are onto him, and as a consequence of the death threats issued to him, he gets an assigned Auror guard. Maybe Harry Potter, their leader, could be a problem when it comes to Draco’s latest con. Although how could he, when he’s getting all distracted by Draco’s fluttering eyelashes? 

6. John MacNab Didn’t Have a Wand by StacPolly [M, 42.5k]

It’s Silly Season and Kingsley’s tired of life, Hermione’s living vicariously, Harry’s had enough and Malfoy turns out to have a sense of humour. Ron’s just in it for the laugh.
When the Minister for Magic and Head Auror start to suffer from post-war ennui Hermione decides to liven them up with a re-enactment of John MacNab, infamous poacher from Highland estates. Lucius Malfoy’s albino peacocks had better watch out…

7. The Magician’s Gifts by RurouniHime | @thegertie [M, 32.7k]

Harry’s crisis is only the beginning of his journey. 
★ H/D World Cup 2008: Team Canon 

8. Love Is Indispensable by Rice-Ball247 (Koibito247) [T, 22.1k]

Draco Malfoy didn’t know anything about love, Harry concluded. The reason as to why he was giving him a chance was beyond his own understanding, but now it seems that Draco is the one teaching Harry how to love. 

9. The Other Side to Draco Malfoy by makingitwork [E, 20.5k]

Draco Malfoy’s best friend is Theodore Nott, the only person he trusts. So The Golden Trio decide to make Harry use Polyjuice Potion to see what Draco knows about the war. The only problem is, while pretending to be Theodore Nott, Harry discovers another side to Draco. A better, lonelier side. And the plan falls to pieces. As plans often do.

10. The Curse of the Little Mermaid by @darkravenwrote [E, 18.5k]

It starts with an itch, which rapidly devolves into Potter asking what ‘in the name of McGonagall’s pantaloons’ he is doing in a pond. Things can only get better from there, right?

Thierry Henry, Forward, Henry has received many plaudits and awards in his football career. He was runner-up for the 2003 and 2004 FIFA World Player of the Year awards; in those two seasons, he also won back-to-back PFA Players’ Player of the Year titles. Henry is the only player ever to have won the FWA Footballer of the Year three times (2003, 2004, 2006), and the French Player of the Year on a record four occasions. Henry was voted into the Premier League Overseas Team of the Decade in the 10 Seasons Awards poll in 2003, and in 2004 he was named by football legend Pelé on the FIFA 100 list of the world’s greatest living players. 

In terms of goal-scoring awards, Henry was the European Golden Boot winner in 2004 and 2005 (sharing it with Villarreal’s Diego Forlán in 2005). Henry was also the top goalscorer in the Premier League for a record four seasons (2002, 2004, 2005, 2006). In 2006, he became the first player to score more than 20 goals in the league for five consecutive seasons (2002 to 2006). With 175, Henry is currently fifth in the list of all-time Premier League goalscorers, behind Alan Shearer, Andy Cole, Wayne Rooney and Frank Lampard. All of his Premier League goals were for Arsenal, giving him the record for most goals in the competition for one club, until it was broken by Rooney in 2016. France’s all-time record goalscorer was, in his prime in the mid 2000s, regarded by many coaches, footballers and journalists as one of the best players in the world. In November 2007, he was ranked 33rd on the Association of Football Statisticians’ compendium for “Greatest Ever Footballers." 

Arsenal fans honoured their former player in 2008, declaring Henry the greatest Arsenal player. In two other 2008 surveys, Henry emerged as the favourite Premier League player of all time among 32,000 people surveyed in the Barclays 2008 Global Fan Report. In 2009, Henry was voted the best Premier League player of the 2000s. Arsenal fan and The Who lead singer Roger Daltrey mentions Henry in the tribute song "Highbury Highs”, which he performed at Arsenal’s last ever game at Highbury on 7 May 2006. On 10 December 2011, Arsenal unveiled a bronze statue of Henry at the Emirates Stadium as part of its 125th anniversary celebrations.
