Virtue-Moir

“Tessa had just gotten off the phone and there was a bit of a huddle at home, and she finally revealed that she and Scott had decided that they would no longer date.”

“How old were they?”

“She was eight and he was ten. And they thought that it would impede their career. So they decided they would put it away for now.” (x)

“If we’re talking about our legacy on the ice, it would be great if when people thought of us they thought, ‘They were true dancers,’ and that we made people feel something." 

~Tessa Virtue, 2010

"What we’ll remember most is how we felt when we watched [Tessa and Scott] skate.”

~Sochi 2014 commentator

They achieved what they set out to achieve: to be remembered for igniting emotions among the audience, to be loved and cherished for making people feel.

Thank you, Tessa & Scott. You may be silver on the podium, but you will always be gold in our hearts.

When life gives you lemons a Canadian flag poncho, you make lemonade wear it on your head & fly across the ice.

“canadians need to stop complaining just because they didn’t win gold-”

“you only think the judging was fixed because you didn’t win-”

“just let us have our moment-”

WELL LET ME JUST FUCKING APOLOGIZE FOR THE FACT THAT OUR WHOLE ENTIRE COUNTRY HAS TRUST ISSUES BECAUSE WE’VE ALREADY BEEN SCREWED OVER ONCE IN THE OLYMPICS AND WE DON’T WANT IT TO HAPPEN AGAIN
