no offense but the 2000 Russian Team Final floor lineup is iconic af
(not including Anna Chepeleva because her score didn’t count since this was still 6-5-4 and i honestly have only ever seen her routine once and like… let’s be real. The 2000 Russian Olympic team may have had six members, but only four of them mattered.)
Up first, Yekaterina Lobaznyuk, scoring a 9.750. One of my all-time favorite floor routines and in my opinion, the best choreographed floor routine to Hava Nagila ever. I still cry regularly about what her career could have been had she not had that knee injury.
Next, Zamo, scoring a 9.775. Opening up with a double-double followed up by a 3/2 into 3/1 twist and dismounting with a full-in. Insanely difficult tumbling for the time, and even now gymnasts rarely have three tumbling lines as difficult in one floor routine (obviously there are many exceptions I am just talking generally).
Oh, Produnova. 9.725, but she only started from a 9.9 I believe. Her iconic double front tumbling in combination and like, the most dramatic routine ever. The shaved eyebrow. The gold hair glitter. Your fav could NEVER.
And anchoring the team, Sveta. 9.787. Probably her best choreographed floor routine (but performed slightly better during the AA) and one of my all time favs ever. I mean… the one armed salute? The triple twist in time with the music? The kiss to the crowd at the end? Iconic.
“My hand jobs are not second rate.” Tony blurts from his
position sitting on the counter, four heads slowly turn to stare at him.
Judgmental expressions on their faces. “Well they’re not, I don’t care
what Jason from accounting says”
“No, they aren’t.” Steve agrees, smiling at Tony.
“Who the fuck is Jason from accounting?” Clint demands,
jumping out of his seat. Tony rolls his eyes at the dramatics.
“Cute guy, that’s not the point.” Tony lays back
across the counter. “The point is that my hand jobs are not second rate.”
“We can all agree to that. But, it doesn’t answer the
question Tony.” Natasha points out. “Who is Jason from accounting.” Tony
groans, throwing his arms over his head.
“What? Is Jason from accounting not enough information
for you, Ms. Super spy? It’s Jason, the one from accounting.” She glares
at him, and Tony pales slightly. Might not be a great idea to get snarky with
Natasha this late at night.
“Does this building even have an accounting department?
I’ve never seen accounting here?” Clint muses. Tony groans loudly.
“Whoever Jason is I don’t remember having talked to
him, ever.” Steve muses. Tony glares at him from where his head is buried under
"What the hell, Tony?” Clint asks. “Who is this
“ Well first of all, you guys are dumb. Of course, accounting
is in this building. Seriously it’s company headquarters.” Tony scowls at them.
Steve vaults the couch in his rush to get into the elevator, Clint not far
behind him. "Guys it is midnight! And Jason works in the San Francisco
department! Seriously guys!”
“You should really mention that first next time.”
Natasha informs him, she smiles warmly at him. Tony squints at her
“It’s midnight, I didn’t exactly expect them to go hunt
Jason down in an empty office building.” Tony defends. “Hell, I didn’t think
they’d try to hunt him down at all.”
“Okay, anyways speaking of San Francisco, I wanted to go
check out California sometime soon.” Natasha says. Tony squints at her
suspiciously. “What? I’ve heard there’s some great places to shop down there.”
“It’s midnight.” Clint announces as the elevator doors slide
open. “Jason is not here.” Tony groans, and slides off the counter, glaring at
“Guys it was a joke. Jason did not actually say my hand
jobs were second rate I was quoting a YouTube video. Please don’t try to hunt
down or kill Jason from accounting.” Tony pleads. Steve nods agreeably.
"Okay.” Clint says, and Tony relaxes. “Jason didn’t say
your hand jobs were second rate, but did Jason ever experience a hand job from
you?” Tony groans.
“Well, yes. But-” Tony starts to defend himself.
Clint sticks his finger in Tony’s face.
“Murder time!” Clint declares. Natasha nods
solemnly in the background. Steve at least looks mildly conflicted, and Bruce
seems to have fallen asleep on the couch.
“No. You cannot kill someone I slept with three years
ago.” Tony scolds, shoving Clint’s hand out of his face.
“Why not?” Clint whines. Tony looks to Steve for support,
and gets nothing.
“Well for one thing, he’s a nice guy, and also, he’s pretty.
I think his boyfriend and him are looking to adopt soon. No killing him.”
Tony says. Steve finally seems to be on his side, glaring Clint into silence. “Plus
he’s hot.” Tony tacks on.
“I’m killing him.” Natasha states.
“Nat, no. You can’t just kill every hot person I’ve slept
with.” He says, she raises an eyebrow in a way that very much indicates she’s
taking that as a challenge. “No, no, no. I will not tolerate the murder of
anyone who isn’t actively threatening civilian lives.” Tony says.
“But you let him touch your dick.” Clint whines. Natasha
“I also let every girl on the playboy calendar in 2008 touch
my dick, what’s your point? I’m a slut guys.” He points out. Steve scowls at
“You are not-“ Steve starts to protest.
“That’s not what you said last night.” Tony interrupts and
Steve goes bright red. “The blushing is cute Steve but you’re dating everyone
in this room, there is no need to be so embarrassed.”
“We can kill them too.” Natasha points out, choosing to
“If you’re killing everyone who’s touched my dick then you’re
going to have to kill everyone in this room, including me.” He points at a
sleeping Bruce. “Not exactly an easy task. No Clint, that is not a challenge.”
Clint’s face falls.
“You’d also have to kill a bunch of reporters, a few European
models, some MIT Alumni.” Tony rattles off. “Oh, and Tiberius Stone, actually
go ahead on that one if you really want to kill someone. Then there’s the Russian
Olympic team from 2004-“
“Wait, why is Tiberius an exception?” Steve asks, more like
a demand then a question. Tony’s stomach feels cold, and his eyes dart towards
“Well,” He hedges, scanning for another exit. “He is an
asshole.” There’s someone between him and ever potential exit other than the
window, and he isn’t that desperate, yet. He can hide behind a sleeping Bruce
if he has to.
“What did he do to you?” Natasha asks, and suddenly there’s
a gun on his coffee table and a knife in her hands. “I will kill him for you
“There is no call for knives on date night Natasha, no call.”
He splutters, taking a step towards Bruce. Her eyes narrow.
“Seriously Tony, what did he do to you?” Clint asks, and
that is his serious face, Tony does not want to deal with this.
“Can we not? I really don’t need an interrogation on date
night.” Tony crosses his arms over his chest and tries for his best kicked
puppy look in hopes of making them stop.
“We would like to know why we’ll be killing him, that’s all.”
Natasha tries to soothe him. “You should tell us Antoshka.” Tony shakes his
“Nope, I’m going to go hide in my lab. Please, don’t kill
Jeremy from accounting.” Tony says, pushing past Clint.
“I thought his name was Jason.” Clint mumbles, as Tony gets
blocked by Steve. Tony rolls his eyes.
“Yes, it was Jason, I also fucked Jeremy there are a lot of
hot guys in accounting, okay?” Tony throws his hands up in frustration.
“Why do all their names start with J?” Clint mutters to
himself, the rest of the room decides to ignore him.
“Tell us what Tiberius did, or we’ll have to ask Rhodey.”
Steve threatens. Tony decides he’d rather pay attention to Clint.
“Yes, all of their names do start with J.” Tony says, after
a moment of thought. “Now Steve, I’d like you to get your boobs out of my face.
I’m going to my lab now.” Steve shakes his head.
“No, you didn’t tell us what Tiberius did. We need to know Tony.”
Steve says. Tony’s jaw tightens, and he glares up at Steve.
“I am going to my lab now. Move.” Tony says, his voice
ringing with a tone usually reserved for people who ruin date night, and super
villains actively holding guns to a child’s head.
“Steve, that’s the murder face, and voice. You should
probably move.” Clint says. Steve scowls, but steps out of the way, saving
himself some serious harm. Tony would never hurt anyone he’s dating, but he
also doesn’t kiss people when they’re being assholes. With three other people
to kiss, well, he can be stubborn.
“Okay, but I’m asking Rhodey.” Steve grumbles. Tony waves
them off, disappearing into the elevator.
“Great, it’s been a joy talking to you all really.” He
flashes them a sharp grin as the doors slide shut. Clint winces.
“I think we’re in trouble.” Clint sighs, immediately perking
back up though and turning to Natasha. “We’re killing this Tiberius guy, right?”
She nods, using the knife to clean under her nails.
“Of course, provided Tony doesn’t attempt to stop us.” She
says. “He already gave us permission after all.” Steve looks hesitant.
“Shouldn’t we call Rhodey and make sure this guy deserves to
be murdered before we actually, you know, kill him?” Steve asks. Natasha
“Tony’s not hiding in his lab avoiding our questions because
Tiberius is a nice guy Steve. We’re going to kill him.” She says, it’s a fair
point, but he still wants to call Rhodey.
“We’re totally killing him.” Clint agrees, holding out a
hand to Natasha for a fist bump.
“Can we at least find out what he did, before we kill him?”
Steve asks, Natasha considers this for a second.
“Yes, I need to know how slowly he deserves to die.” Natasha
says. “Do it quickly though, it’s not going to take me long to track down
someone named Tiberius. It’s like his parents wanted him to be an asshole with
that name.” She pulls out her phone, to hunt him down.
“Okay, let’s hope Rhodey’s awake. JARVIS can you call him?”
“Certainly Sir.” JARVIS agrees.
“He’s probably asleep like a normal person.” Clint points
out. Steve glares at him.
“Let me hope Clint, let me hope.” There’s a loud beep as
Rhodey picks up the phone.
“Tony, I swear if this is another my boyfriends and
girlfriend don’t love my crisis.” Rhodey grumbles. “It’s the middle of the
night.” Natasha looks up, interested.
“We’re getting back to that. Steve wants to know what
Tiberius did to Tony so he won’t feel so bad for letting Clint and I murder
him.” Natasha explains. Rhodey groans, they can hear blankets rustling.
“Just kill the fucker and let me go back to sleep.” He
“Can’t you just tell us why we’re killing him?” Steve
pleads. Clint is staring eagerly at the ceiling waiting for an answer.
“Nope, it’s not my place to tell you, and I think I’ve
spilled enough of Tony’s secrets. Seriously just kill him. Tony didn’t let me
because of my career.” Rhodey grumbles, a hint of bitterness coloring his tone
at the last sentence. “Can I go to sleep now, or did you need anything else?”
“I’ll let you sleep if you tell us what Tiberius did to
Tony.” Steve says.
“Fuck off Rogers, I’m going to bed.” The dial tone rings
out, and Steve seriously considers calling back again.
“Well, that was rude.” Clint comments, after a moment of
“I am currently operating under the understanding that
harassing people to divulge other’s secrets in the middle of the night could
also be considered rude, Agent Barton.” JARVIS chimes in, Clint actually looks slightly
ashamed under the weight of JARVIS’ disapproval.
“We just want to know what he did.” Clint mumbles,
defensive. Natasha pats his shoulder consolingly.
“Don’t worry, we can just ask Tiberius before we kill him.” She
“Alternatively, and this might be shocking.” Bruce says,
sitting up from where he’d been napping on the couch. Natasha absolutely does
not jump, Steve absolutely does. “Completely out of left field idea, you could
respect Tony’s privacy, and wait for him to tell you.”
“Yeah, we could, but we need to kill Tiberius, and we should
know why first.” Steve says. Bruce
blinks at him, a little tired.
“Rhodey says kill him, and Tony said it was okay. I think
your morals are safe Steve, he clearly fucked up majorly.” Bruce says. Steve
nods along, that makes sense.
“We just want to know though.” Clint whines. Bruce narrows
his eyes at him.
“You can want to know all you want, whatever. Respect Tony’s
privacy.” Bruce says.
“Fine.” Clint grumbles corssing his arms. His eyes dart over
to Natasha, and he leans in to whisper to her. “We’re going to ask Tiberius,
“Obviously.” She whispers back, and Clint smiles. Bruce
glares at them.
“Natasha?” He asks.
“What?” She pulls her face into her best innocent
expression, it is surprisingly less effective on her boyfriend than it is on
international crime lords.
“Don’t act innocent with me.” He says. “I know you, both of
you.” He turns his eyes to Clint. She raises up her hands in a show of
innocence, the picture is probably ruined by the knife still held in her left
hand but the intent is there.
“I didn’t do anything.” She insists.
“And the Hulk is orange.” Bruce snarks back. “Just go kill
Tiberius or whatever, but don’t invade Tony’s privacy. I don’t want to have to
tag along to protect Tony from you nosy assholes.” She winces at that.
“We’ll be good.” Clint mumbles, and she nods along.
“Promise.” She says, when he squints at her.
“Fine.” He rolls over to go back to sleep, and something
occurs to her.
“Wait. Do you know what Tiberius did?” She asks. He fakes a
snore, and she jumps onto the arm rest, standing over him. “You know, tell us.”
He glares up at her.
“Respect. Tony’s. Privacy.” He says, pulling the blanket
over his head.
“Why would Tony tell Bruce, and not us? We’re all dating.”
Natasha pouts. Clint shrugs.
“Well, Bruce didn’t interrogate him about it.” Steve points

kiss yuuri at the cup of china, one protective hand at the back of yuuri’s head as he flings them both backwards onto the ice
choreographed his marriage proposal to yuri with the entire russian skating federation and russian olympic hockey team in pyeongchang after yuuri narrowly takes gold.
stayed sober on their honeymoon. “i get to remember this forever,” he says, leaning down to kiss yuuri, who is folded in half, calves over his shoulders.
cries when their daughter decides to pursue something entirely unrelated to figure skating. “i was always worried she would turn out like me,” he says, pressing his wet face into yuuri’s shoulder as they help unpack all of her belongings into her dorm room. “she’s so smart. she’s just like you. i’m so happy.”
fic: you know you’re supposed to keep it (parse/tater, past discussed jack/parse)
@des-zimbits wanted “fic where Tater tells Kent that Jack has a boyfriend he’s joyously in love with and telling his team about/introducing them to, and then Kent and Tater process the news and what it might mean for them?” and I thought… if Tater was so sure about Jack having a girlfriend earlier (obviously that could’ve been for show but go with me here), then that’d mean he and Kent are together but he still doesn’t know about Jack in Kent’s past… and then this story happened. Probably both more angsty and more about Jack/Parse than the prompt.
secrets you keep for so long they become a part of you
warnings: not sure of more exact tags, but Parse’s mental landscape is a Mess. // ~2k, also here on ao3.
“You never guess what Zimmboni just told me,” Tater says as soon as Kent opens up his Skype request. It’s funny: for years any mention of Jack would’ve stolen his attention, but right now all he can think about is his boyfriend, and how he fills up any space he’s in so attractively with his boundless energy. He’s bouncing on his bed right now, making the camera of his laptop jump, and Kent aches to be there, to feel that enthusiasm. He curses the length of almost two months that are marked out on both of their calendars until they’ll be able to see each other again.

More Worldbuilding doodles for the Kaitou on Ice AU! (And yes, that’s what I’ve decided to tag it as from now on)
When Minako’s dance troupe touches down in St. Petersburg, they’re granted permission to use the same recreational studio as the Russian Olympic team, meaning their daily practices are occasionally visited by famous local athletes; including Gold Medalist Victor Nikiforov and his protege Yuri “Yurio” Plisetsky. They usually don’t get to share more than a few words before heading off to their own practice, but Victor does begin to show some mild interest in one of Minako’s senior troupe members; despite the daily criticisms of Yurio that he needs to focus more on practicing and choreographing their programs for the next winter games. (Yuuri would probably mind it less if Phichit didn’t constantly tease him for Victor’s wandering eyes…)
At nighttime, the two Phantom Thieves come out to play their games; namely stealing the artifact before the other can, while doing their best to distract the other in order to gain the upper hand. This more than often leads to the two exchanging witty and playful (sometimes borderline flirtatious) banter that takes up more of their night than actually stealing whatever artifact they’re after in the first place. They never go as far as to use one another as bait for the police, however, since their challenge would suddenly stop if one were to be arrested, and the nights would consequently become less fun as a result.
Well if you want have some fun, then go and see new Team Russia Olympic outfit, coz Russian ROC signed contract with ZASport company, instead of Bosco :( it's looks ugly as ass of elephant and much more worse then Rio Qual leos :( Why Russia!? www(.)vedomosti(.)ru/lifestyle/galleries/2017/04/13/685577-zasport#/galleries/140737493226493/normal/1
