My serious but kinda crack headcannons for the Victuuri wedding
Yakov gives Victor away. Yurio is the ring bearer (because in episode 10 he was lashing out from anxiety and fear of failure/replacement so he’s not really mad at Victuuri he’s just a scared teenager and this violent reaction shows he does actually care). The triplets are the flower girls. Minako is the maid of honour. Chris is Victor’s best man. Phichit is Yuuri’s best man
Minami faints when he gets his invitation (which is from Victor no Yurri so our poor katsudon is very surprised to see his #1 fan at his wedding)
Phichit, Guang-Hong and Leo take so many pictures everyone wonders why they bothered hiring a photographer
DANCE BATTLE. Featuring reining champion Yuuri Katsuki-Nikiforov and his arch nemesis Yuri Plisetsky!!! With special guests Victor Nikiforov-Katsuki, and to everyone’s amazement (and because of Yuratchka’s begging) Otabek Atlin!!!!
A portable stripper pole courtesy of everyone’s favourite hoe Christophe Giacometti which gets brought out at the after party (which Yuri, Otabek, Minami, Guang-Hong, Leo, the twins and Yuuri’s parents are not there to witness as they all went home as Chris poured a 15th glass of champagne down Yuuri’s throat)
Victor picks their tuxes because he (and I quote) doesn’t trust Yuuri’s fashion sense.
After the minors leave bodyshots galore.
Drunk Yuuri begs Victor to be his husband and Victor is just like “Oh little katsudon” and everyone’s hearts melts.
Yuko and Yurio have a reunion and my brotp lives once more
- I CREID WHEN VICTOR CREID BECAUSE THAT WAS UNEXPECTED. SHIED MAN.
- JJ– OH MY GOD. SEE THIS IS WHY I LOVE YOU. YOU DESERVE 3RD PLACE. I STILL DON’T GET WHY PEOPLE HATE YOU. I STILL DON’T GET AFTER THEY REVEAL A DIFFERENT SIDE OF YOU, THEY CONTINUE TO BASH YOU AND COMPARE YOU TO A CHARACTER OBVIOUSLY DIFFERENT FROM YOU.
YOU DESERVE THE CHEERS JJ. I ALSO LOVE HOW DAD JUST SAY THAT “NO MATTER WHAT HIS SCORE IS, WE’LL GREET HIM WITH A SMILE”. LOOK GUYS. HIS PARENTS WERE FREAKING ICE DANCING OLYMPIC CHAMPIONS. IF YOU GO THOROUGHLY WITH JJ’S TYPICAL CHARACTER TROPE, HIS PARENTS SHOULD HAVE BEEN BOSSY AND DEMANDING OF HIM TO WIN GOLD. BUT NO MAN. JJ EVEN MENTIONED HE DOESN’T DESERVE THE CHEERS FROM HIS FANS. HE ALSO DID NOT WANT TO WIN OUT OF PURE LUCK. HE DID NOT WANT TO WIN BECAUSE HIS COMPETITORS MADE MISTAKES IN THEIR PERFORMANCE. LIKE, BITCH, IF HE WAS A OVER-CONVIDENT BOSSY PERSON, SHOULDN’T HE HAVE TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF HIS COMPETITOR’S FAILURE??? HE, LIKE OTABEK AND OTHER CHARACTERS WORKED HARD ON HIS SKATING CAREER TOO. IMAGINE BEING UNDER AN OLYMPIC CHAMPION’S SHADOW. LIKE– HE IS A PRODGY (FOR ME AT LEAST) AND HE DESERVED TO WIN. HIS PROGRAM WAS MORE DIFFICULT THAN PHICHIT AND OTABEK’S COMBINED.
I DON’T SEE WHY. BUT IT’S OKAY, WHATEVER YOUR REASON IS TO DISLIKE HIM, I UNDERSTAND. JUST DON’T STEAL OUR THUNDER JUST BECAUSE YOUR “BIAS” DID NOT WIN. HAVE SOME GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP. WE DIDN’T EVEN EXPECT HIM TO WIN 3RD PLACE EITHER. STOP SPREADING HATE, WHERE HATE IS NOT DUE. LOL.
(AND I HOENSTLY DO NOT MIND IF HE DID NOT WIN. I JUST WANT HIM TO BE PART OF THE MAIN CHARACTER’S LITTLE SKATING SQUAD BUT IT SEEMS LIKE HE’S MADE AN OUTCAST, SO WHATEVS. I ALSO AM TEMPTED TO DRAW A CUTE TISSUE BOX PLUSHIE FOR HIM COZ I HAVEN’T SEEN ANYONE THROW PLUSHEIS AT HIM. I WAS THINKING OF A LION, WHAT DO YOU THINK GUYS??)

So now that they are over I would like to extend my congratulations to all the skaters and here were the highlights
Welcome to the US National ChenpionShibs, Asian Americans dominated the field with this fabulous lady skating an incredible short program and fiery free skate.
Congratulations Karen Chen on her gold medal and her first US Nationals title
Congratulations to my boy Nathan and his gold medal and first US Nationals title along with becoming the first skater ever to land 5 QUADS IN THE FREE SKATE AND 7 OVERALL EVER and take gold with a MASSIVE lead and 318 points. This kid is only 17 and doing all these quads a year after hip surgery, seriously one to watch out for in the coming competitions and seasons. I was literally breathless and shaking the whole way through both his programs
Now onto my loves, a huge congratulations to Maia and Alex Shibutani for defending their title as reigning US Ice Dance champions and their second US nationals gold medal. These two are a huge inspiration for me and are the new torch carriers of an incredible era for Ice Dance, not only in America but also around the world. These two are definitely ones to watch for the coming Olympic season
I didn’t get a chance to watch pairs this time but congratulations to Haven Denney and Brandon Frazier on their Nationals win
As for Canadian nationals
Congratulations to Patrick Chan on his 9th National title, PChan’s short program is one of my favourites for the whole season
congratulations to Tessa and Scott for their 7th National title, so much love for these two, their free dance is stunning!!
Congratulations to Megan and Eric for their 6th straight national title,
and congratulations to Kaetlyn Osmond for her 3rd national title, seriously a wonderful skater
Other highlights for me were Mirai Nagasu’s extraordinary short program and record breaking score (seriously I love Mirai Nagasu so much and I want her to be happy, I would sacrifice so much to see her happy) and Tessa Hong and the way the crowd rallied behind her when she struggled during the free skate, she is only 14 and i’m predicting great things from her.
As for the men, oh god I have adopted so many new sons (if you ever hangout in the sywtwfs live chat this is a running joke that I have to many sons) Jimmy Ma, Vincent Zhou (2nd place baby), Sean Rabbitt (and that little butt slap), Antony Cheng and MY SON Elladj Balde (I love him very much and I hope to see more from him this was a painful nationals to watch for his fans I just want him happy).
In other news, I am now the Vice President (one of the) of the Antony Cheng fanclub and Chairwoman of the Jimmy Ma fanclub. Also Joe Johnson is adorable and the jj style in the K&C killed me haha.
I’m super excited for the rest of the season and I’m currently working on getting all the asks answered.
Here’s to an awesome Nationals season!! and congratulations to all the new stars (I loved Nathan before he was famous and I am so proud)
Olympic ice dance champion Charlie White posted a screenshot on
Twitter on Jan. 17 of something he’d written “from the heart.” It
began, “Words matter. Action matters. The role we play in society
matters. These are lessons I learned as an athlete, and they are the
words I live by as an Olympian.”
The micro-essay was a signal
that things were about to change on White’s social media portal for his
fans and followers, where his profile invites them to “Join me here for
an important conversation.”
Since then, amid personal snapshots
and promotional tidbits for the ice shows he does with partner and
co-gold medalist Meryl Davis, White, whose Twitter handle is
@CharlieaWhite, has posted a steady stream of strong opinions about
national politics. Many of his Tweets
have pointedly criticized the Trump administration, but White keeps
returning to a more general theme he felt keenly as an international
athlete: the image and example his country presents to the world.
also engages in lengthy, patient, but firm reply threads with those who
disagree with him. It’s a huge departure from his sanitized competitive
persona where, as he admits, “I wasn’t a good interview. I didn’t say
Taking such a public stance is unusual in
the Olympic sports realm, where active athletes often refrain or are
discouraged from making political statements by their sponsors and
governing bodies, and are formally barred from doing so on the field of
play at the Games themselves. (One outspoken exception is six-time
Olympic shooting medalist and gun-rights advocate Kim Rhode, who
addressed the 2012 GOP convention and last summer openly backed
then-candidate Donald Trump.) White, who is married to 2006 Olympic ice
dance silver medalist Tanith Belbin White, says he has felt no external
pressure to censor himself. He and Davis have not competed since the
2013-14 season that culminated with their gold medal at the Sochi Games,
but they have not ruled out a comeback. “[Tanith and Meryl] are both
supportive,” he says. “They know 100 percent that when I feel strongly
about something, I can’t stay silent. We’re on the same page in terms of
what is important in the world, and there are things worth standing up
White, 29, has been chipping away at a degree in political
science at the University of Michigan for many years. He still makes his
living in the figure skating realm as a performer, commentator and
He realizes some may think he’s on thin
ice, whether or not he and Davis ever compete again. But White says he
is driven by a sense of obligation. “Post-election, I had to look at
myself in the mirror and say, ‘What are you really disappointed with
here?’ And unfortunately the answer was 'myself,”’ he said in a recent
interview. The following are excerpts from that conversation.
Ford: Was [commenting on politics] something that you had to ponder for a while, or did it happen organically?
It’s very interesting to be doing an interview of this nature [laughs].
I’ve gotten so comfortable with my go-to answers regarding sport and
figure skating. I’m a bit nervous to take this on publicly, both in this
interview and via social media. I’ve long been interested in politics,
but I never expected myself to become a political commentator, objector
or relatively outspoken person one way or the other. It had less to do
with being an athlete and more to do just with the fact that I really
have worked hard for people to like me. And I have always enjoyed being
able to make people happy. Unfortunately, it’s always seemed to be that
when you step into the political realm, you don’t get the benefit of the
doubt any more. That’s weighed on me.
Following the election, I
wasn’t happy with the result. I understand the way politics work, as a
living, breathing organism in our society, and that so often, change is
revered for the sake of change. I got it. But I did, at that moment,
recognize that being upset with the way the election turned out, I could
really only hold myself accountable, as I hadn’t participated as a
vocal, active citizen in the process. I determined that if I want to be
able to be at peace with myself, I have to take a larger role. I’m
almost as surprised as some of my skating fans that follow me on
Ford: I don’t know what percentage of your replies [on Twitter] you’re responding to, but it seems like a lot. What’s that like?
That’s an important part of it for me. Being able to engage with
people is ultimately what will allow us to coalesce as a nation. I
understand the deep divide and I understand partisan politics – it
doesn’t seem there’s an easy way out. So I think beyond being able to
engage people with different kinds of ideological beliefs, and set a
baseline for expectations that could be universally applied to our
political system, that’s a way in which you can start to heal what has
been a grueling process that started with the campaigning for this last
We’re all coming at this from very different life
experiences. To be a good citizen, you have to be able to come to the
table with an open mind and a respect for the diversity of the people
you’ll be dealing with, to learn something as well as contribute. On
Twitter, it can be difficult. You’re stuck with 140 characters, but that
doesn’t mean you can’t give people an opportunity to listen to
something they might not have heard before, in a respectful way. Being
able to listen to people, even via social media, and make them feel
they’ve been heard and understood, even if you disagree vehemently, I
think that’s something they can take with them and allow them a better
way to enter into the next conversation they have with someone. It’s
been very important for me to engage with those who raise objections –
but also those who agree with me – but do so in a way that I don’t
think is conducive to a healthy conversation. I have taken stands
against people who, you know, they’re trying to be funny, they’re trying
to be witty, I get that. So much of dealing with things that scare you
is to trying to make it funny. But when that “funny” is at the expense
of someone else, you put them in a defensive posture, and it’s certainly
not going to solve any problems.
Ford: Has it been hard to be restrained? Are there times when you draft a tweet and say, “No, I’m gonna trash that one.”
Yeah, of course. I’m fallible. I don’t expect that all my interactions
have been perfect or will be perfect. But I do have very high
expectations for myself because I recognize that what’s at stake is much
bigger than being petty. It’s so easy to be petty when you think
there’s no hope you’ll be able to even have a respectful conversation.
That’s how it can often devolve. Online, when you’re not face to face
with someone, you can ignore they’re a real person. Lately I have gotten
some of those messages where it’s like, 'OK, this person clearly isn’t
trying to add anything or take away anything. They might not even
believe what they’re saying, they just get a kick out of being mean.’
You have to be aware of what you’re dealing with. I generally try not to
block people. You deserve more than one opportunity to bring something
constructive to the table. Who knows what epiphany someone could have?
Skating can be a very snarky, subjective environment. But I’ve got to
believe the worst of what you experienced then is nothing compared to
what you could experience now.
White: As an athlete, I
always had a very stoic approach. I want to apologize, but it was
probably the right way of handling myself when we were competing – I
wasn’t a good interview. I didn’t say interesting things. I probably
said about the same thing in 90 percent of my interviews for about eight
years. But for me, it was always a matter of show, don’t tell. If I
had something to say, I did it by practicing hard, being consistent,
keeping a level head and going out and doing my best. I think that
allowed me to stay away from making critical mistakes at the wrong
times. I feel the same way now. As long as you take an intelligent and
measured approach to the things that matter to you, and you do so with
an open mind and a kind heart, thinking about more than just yourself,
then you can’t be disappointed with the outcome. I feel that way about
Twitter, and I feel that way about politics, and I feel that way about
life. I think it’s served me well so far. If through my actions and my
words I can give strength, or courage, or a new take on the same
information to 10 percent of the people who hear me or listen to me or
care about what I say, then I think that will have been worth it. Even
if zero percent are interested in what I have to say, I can’t be
disappointed in my own effort. That’s certainly something I’ve taken
from what I had to go through in skating.
still in that skating world, making a living in a different way, and I
assume will do so indefinitely. Your sponsors, your agent – have there
been any uncomfortable conversations?
White: I haven’t had
a direct conversation with anyone about it. I know my parents are
proud, which means a lot to me. Taking my tone and my approach into
account, I don’t think there’s much to be worried about. Ultimately,
when you feel as strongly as I do about questions of morality and
ethics, you can’t sell yourself short on that. There is a balancing act,
of course. But I feel a great sense of duty to the country that allowed
me the opportunity to have such a fantastic life, to represent them at
the Olympics. I guess if there’s an issue that ever arises, I’ll have to
deal with that. Right now, I feel fortunate that I haven’t had any
pressure to stay quiet.
Ford: Is it possible we would see you out marching?
Yes, absolutely. It’s been exciting to see the way the public has
responded. It’s not easy to go out and take a stand for something you
believe in. But that’s how we started this country. It’s a way of
getting people – not to think the same way, but to really think hard
about what it is our country should be representative of.
Viktor and Yuuri had help from JJ’s parents to develop their dance for the gala!
Like it or not Viktor and Yuuri are both singles skaters, and you can’t just casually turn a singles program into an ice dance program overnight. Yes, they probably relied on instinct/applied what they know of RL dancing to their routine, and learned a lot from watching videos and whatnot, but they would’ve needed at least some guidance, esp for the lifts and how to execute them safely
The only people we know of in the anime who would have the knowledge and expertise to help them are JJ’s parents, former Olympic ice dance champions!
And if this can double as an opportunity to break down some of the walls separating JJ from his fellow skaters then all the better imo
