It seriously itches me that not more people talk about Yuzuru’s unbelievable mental strength he has shown in the Free Skate. We just need to talk about it because it’s a nearly impossible human act this boy has shown us and I still can’t grasp it. Just think about it, Yuzuru has been in 5th place after the Short Programm because of a major mistake. All hopes and possibilities of finally getting that title seemed to have vanished and on top of that he felt like he just let his whole country down. The critics were already passing him off and the chances that he would be flying home without a medal were actually growing.
But Yuzuru managed to completely delete every single one of these thoughts from his mind. He went out there during his Free Skate and showed the whole world what he was capable of. Not only did he manage to skate a thoroughly magnificent performance without literally a single flaw, he also won the whole competition all while being in the 5th place and on top of that breaking his own world record of getting the most points during any Free Skate ever all over again. Just one of these three achievements alone would already be more than amazing and truly remarkable. But he skated a flawless programm, got that world record and won the world championships all in one single evening after already getting declared as hopeless.
Yuzuru Hanyu has more than my total respect and I will never understand how this boy is possible in any sense. Thank you so much Yuzuru. You’re amazing.
They play every Saturday in Billy’s basement. His mom makes like a full seven layer dip and everything.
They order a pizza each and billy’s mom doesn’t even bat an eye.
Jason never gets to play the first round. So he makes it a point to lay across the whole couch. The group just sits on top of him. Except Jasons head will be in Billy’s lap…… with his permission of course
Trini no matter how hard she tries can never break past 5th place, except for once on a rare occasion. She doesn’t like to talk about it.
Zack always comes in last Place and blames Trini for it. This usually ends in a wrestling match on the floor. Trini usually coming out on top until Kim joins the mess and wins the battle.
Billy almost always wins. He studied the game far too much to lose to these simpletons.
Kim plays to screw up other peoples games. She is the one to consistently send out the blue shell on Billy. “I can’t even be mad cause thats my color”
One time Trini was actually in first place then Kim kissed her as a distraction. it was a simple peck, but she was a mess. Billy won the match not understanding why his fellow rangers roared with laughter as Trini sat there in shock.
Jason got so into the game once that he knocked the 7 layer dip clear across the room. it took them hours to clean it up “how did this shit end up OUTSIDE of the window?!?!?”
Whenever Jason gets close to winning zack is there to slap his remote out of his hand, resulting in another wrestling match.
The night usually ends with them in a pile sleeping on the floor with the game menu playing on loop, Until Billy’s mom comes downstairs Turns off the television then lays blankets over the bunch of them
So, as opposed to the usual media angle of Shoma vs Yuzu, Hero’s has decided to put together a program about their relationship, as seen from behind the scenes footage. Most of the articles/reports are now focusing on the relationship between Yuzu and Shoma instead of the previous angle of rivals, because this time they had the shared role of Japan’s representatives as opposed to being individual skaters.
Shoma: Right now, when I’m practicing, my motivation is the desire to achieve the ability to win over Yuzu-kun. That’s the only motivation and, in order to continue growing, I would like to continue forward without changing this feeling.
Yuzu: I’ve often been told that I’m in a position of being chased by others but, if you think about it, just like how we found out with this SP, there are still many people I have to chase after. After all, after the SP the one who was standing in first place was Javier, and the one who was third was Patrick. Of course, the young skater Uno…Uno-san…U-Uno-san? *frowns at himself and laughs* Uno-senshuu** too (was in the top 3). There are many things that I don’t have, so in a manner of speaking, everything is to me, something/someone to chase after.
In which we get a behind the scenes look at the bond between Yuzu and Shoma (as viewed by the Japanese media)

The Lord of the Wedding Rings: The Return of the King - iguana’s 2017 HELLsinki Worlds recap
This is it guys, the last big competition before the Olympics. So much potential for great skates, great disasters and great distress; this competition did not fail to deliver. Nor did the announcers, who were screaming out names and scores as if it were a wrestling match. And it was, in one way or another. Albeit a sparklier one. For a brief couple of days, we thought Javier Fernandez was gonna win his 3rd consecutive World title and I almost had those memes ready but at the same time I knew coming from behind like a wrecking ball was Yuzuru Hanyu’s specialty. To nobody’s surprise Evgenia Medvedeva broke a record; to everyone’s surprise, she only broke it in the long program. Meanwhile, Wenjing Sui and Cong Han’s blues for koolk brought the pairs crown back to China and Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir purple rained on Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron’s parade. Let’s start the recap!
Until My Feet Bleed and My Heart Aches Official Timeline
Some people have been asking for a full timeline of the events of
the Rivals Series so I’ve decided to finally make one. This will be updated as
the series progresses. Also, I am listing the events by calander years (January to
December) but the actual skating seasons usually
cross from the August of one year to the March of the next so keep that in mind
as the fic tends to refer to the skating by season.
Okay so everyone basically knows that Victor has definitely gone to the Olympics but no one talks about the possibility that Yuuri has.
1. Yuri is considered Japan’s best skater
In the anime, Japan has believed this since at least the 2015-16 season. Please consider that 2 Seasons prior would have been the year for the 2014 winter. It’s reasonable that Yuuri would have been considered Japan’s best in 2014 because it’s not likely for skaters scores to vary too much between seasons. [Excluding Viktor Nikiforov & Yuzuru Hanyu who have the ability to score 35+ points above the next skater because they are considered out-liars]
Looking at the scores from Yuri on ice, the competition scores tended to vary by 10-ish points overall from competition. So likely they also all had lower scores 2 seasons ago, if they were competing, because of natural progression. [Unless your an out-liar]
he went to one of the top high schools in shenzhen (which is a major city so basically he had top grades; chinese students do a high school entry exam to see which high school they would get placed in)
he shot his first commercial at age 2 (literally what were the rest of us doing at 2 y/o)
he’s appeared in 15 dramas in total
he has been in 3 movies, one of which earned him 3 rookie actor awards
at an international kung fu competition he got 4th, 5th, and 6th places in different categories (international!!!)
won #1 at a piano competition
won #2 and #3 at art competitions
won #1 in my heart
basically the boy’s all-round talented
everyone should stan him. right now. stop what ur doing rn and stan wen junhui
