ready for sochi

you wanna know what @venenix and i have a lot of feelings about? viktor and yuuri’s wedding + bachelor’s party. admittedly, we have a lot of feelings about viktor and yuuri in general, but we spent roughly three hours texting headcanons back and forth about the night before the wedding and we though it’d be a pity to keep them in our phones, so here goes

  • Viktor and Yuuri obviously get married in Saint Petersburg, considering how Yuuri moved there (and please imagine Yuuri saying “yes we have a lot of beautiful memories in Hasetsu, but Saint Petersburg!!! your home!!! our home!!!” and Viktor proceeding to bawl his eyes out in Russian)
  • they’d also get married during the off season, obviously. and the off season is in summer. you know what Saint Petersburg has, during the summer??? WHITE NIGHTS. BE STILL MY PUSHKIN-LOVING HEART.
  • is there anything more beautiful than the thought of our favorite skaters strolling down Nevsky Prospekt under the white nights i dO NOT THINK SO
  • as for the bachelor’s parties, they obviously start our divided in Team Viktor and Team Yuuri and then they all meet up at a night club and things can only go downhill from there
  • there’s a lot of Phichit singing Abba, specifically say i dooooooo i do i do i do i do with accompanying Guang Hong+Leo chorus
  • when they meet up at the night club, Yuuri has already drank his fair share of champagne and is reADY TO GO BRING BACK SOCHI!YUURI
  • viktor is Ascending
  • somehow Chris has decided that he has to keep the future bridegrooms Pure and Chaste™ and is being a cockblocker extraordinaire
  • also he’s dressed in one of those very tacky “sexy nun” costumes that you find everywhere in Italian carnivals and you can pry this headcanon from my cold and very catholically raised dead hands
  • “NO TOUCHING VIKTOR”, “but—”, “YOU’RE NOT MARRIED YET DON’T LIVE IN SIN”, “chris what the actual fuck”
  • “CHRIS WE’VE BEEN LIVING TOGETHER FOR THREE YEARS ALREADY”, “IN SIN”, “CHRIS YOU’RE NOT MARRIED”, “THAT DOESN’T COUNT”
  • “I CHOOSE A LIFE  OF HOLINESS AND CHASTITY VIKTOR”, “YOU’RE WEARING FISHNETS! AND YOU LIVE WITH YOUR BOYFRIEND”, “HOLINESS”, “CHRIS YOU HAD THE POLICE CALLED ON YOU TWICE BECAUSE YOU WERE SO LOUD”, “CHASTITY
  • half through the evening no one can find Yuri and Otabek because they’re speeding through first and second base behind the dj booth
  • “i fucking hate those two”, “of course you do Yura”, “they’re all over each other look at them!”, “Yura you literally have a hand down my pants not that i’m complaining”
  • during a pause between two songs JJ randomly shouts that “ISABELLA JE T’AIME LET’S HAVE AN ENFANT” and it’s a bit weird but Isabella is just In Love
  • sara and mila take hold of a sofa and spend half the night making out because they haven’t seen each other in a while and really missed each other
  • since it has been discovered that Seunggil is an affectionate!drunk you know he’ll be all over Phichit who is very flirty and so incredibly stunning that a little bit of Seunggil’s soul Dies
  • michele has found out that mediterranean blood mixes incredibly well with alcohol and is dancing like his life depends on it and Emil Sees Heaven
  • when it’s time to go home Phichit drags Yuuri to his hotel room because “you can’t sleep together the night before your wedding are you insane?”
  • the next morning Chris wakes up with a random stripper’s underwear on his head and shakes Viktor awake classic cliché Hollywood comedy style (but considering how we know that he climbed the Hasetsu Castle naked i will not apologize for making him Extra™ not now not ever)
  • “VIKTOR OMG WE HAVE TO GO TO THE WEDDING WAKE UP”, “why who’s getting married”, “WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU MEAN WHO’S GETTING MARRIED VIKTOR YOU’RE GETTING MARRIED”
  • viktor’s eyes turn teary and his lips quiver as he asks “really? with yuuri?” and then he starts bawling
  • but the ceremony is beautiful everyone cries we cry and then they party all over again under the Saint Petersburg white nights amen

Diving To Sochi???

There Are some Sports That Should Be In Both Olympic Games!!

Tom Daley Epitomizes The Olympic Spirit!

Sexy As Hell, Baby!

I’d never been in an environment where I would train alongside other top class skaters. That’s what made me want to move to Cricket Club. I want to be ready for Sochi. I will miss Nanami-sensei. I discussed this with her, and she gave me her whole-hearted blessing. So, I really want to work hard, for all the people who support me, and especially for Nanami-sensei.

Vancouver 2010 Olympic Rewind. Who’s ready for Sochi 2014?

Men’s ice hockey, Alexandre Bilodeau, Joannie Rochette, Tessa Virtue & Scott Moir, Charles Hamelin, Christine Nesbitt, Kaillie Humphies & Heather Moyse, Jon Montgomery.

Get ready for the Sochi Olympics with Russian lit expert Andrew D. Kaufman, who’s picked three books for us that give a deeper understanding of the Caucasus.

For centuries, Russia’s greatest writers have been inspired by this volatile region full not only of immense natural beauty, but of human misery. No matter how or why these writers came to the area, they found a land full of possibility and pain, rich in beauty, yet rife with violence: in short, a concentrated microcosm of the contradictions of life itself.

These three works, each from different periods of Russian history, will give you unforgettable portraits of the splendor and suffering that comprises the Russian Caucasus. And, at fewer than 160 pages each, you won’t have to sacrifice enjoying the Olympics to give them a go.
