seriously though first time i have ever posted anything and it has gotten over 2 notes

Monsters on Ice

Seriously though these guys are flipping ridiculous. They aren’t super-saiyaan powering up and shattering whole planets, but they’re shattering world records like they were cheap wine glasses at an Asgardian wedding. 

Victor Nikiforov: 

While Victor may have been heavily influenced by Johnny Weir, I think his Career Path is probably a lot closer to the modern top figure skater in the world – Yuzuru Hanyu – who currently eclipses the competition.

Now I know a lot of people have been comparing YUURI to Yuzuru, but Yuuri’s career is far from the absolute Rocket-ship that has been Yuzuru’s career so far. And Victor’s rise to World’s Top Skater appears to be even BETTER than that.

Victor’s Medal Career:

Gold at Junior World Championships

5 consecutive Golds at the Grand Prix Finals (Yuzuru Hanyu only has 4 – but if he wins this upcoming December, that’ll be 5, and the most consecutive golds won at a grand prix final… ever. I mean he already holds that title, but it’d be by 2 fucking golds. If you aren’t blown away by this guy, you should be.)

5 consecutive Golds at the World Figure Skating Championships (Yuzuru only has 1, and nobody’s ever gotten more than 3 in a row In recent history - so we’ll say after WW2, typically 3 is the most anyone gets in a row, with the exception of Scott Hamilton who is the only skater since 1945 to get 4 in a row. Total number of medals, if you count them even if they didn’t get them consecutively adds Kurt Browning with 4 and Alexei Yagudin with 4. Our boy Victor here, has 5. With potential to win a nonconsecutive 6 if he heads to Worlds in season 2.)

Gold at 2004 European Figure Skating Championships

However many golds he earned at the Russian Nationals every year from 1999 to present (If Kubo-san borrowed Evgeni Plushenko’s record, that would be an additional 10, with a silver in there for good luck) 

At least 1 Olympic Gold medal (unofficially officially at Torino) 2006

At least 2 time Olympian (Torino in 2006 and Sochi Winter Olympics 2014) If Kubo-san’s pattern of putting Victor in Gold anywhere a Russian took Gold holds though, then Victor is at least a 2 time Olympic Gold Medalist - One at Torino, One at Salt Lake City 2002, with a silver in the 2010 Vancouver Olympics which would make him a 3 time Olympic athlete) 

Golds we’ll never know about in his Junior days, but I’m sure were plentiful in his younger years because HE’S FRIKKING BANK. 

Long-time World Record Free-Skate score holder, Likely World Record Short Program high score Holder, and I’m putting money on long-time world record combined high score holder. 

THIS MOFO was pulling 300+ combined score in 2012.

Look at that leaderboard, okay. Chris and Victor have literally BLOWN the world record off the fricking charts. Just tossed it to the side like a sweaty sports towel, and the announcers aren’t screaming their lungs out like they should be. Yuzuru Hanyu, the current WORLDS TOP RANK SKATER was the first to bust 300, but that didn’t happen until 2015! 

Psst - I would also like you to note that Yuri’s score at 6th place is right on par with the average TOP WORLD RANKED SKATERS today. Victor is so fricking extra. 

Okay. Now that we’re all excited, remember that Victor has been regularly pulling over 100 in his Short Program routines. So regularly, in fact, that at the beginning of the series he is able to off-handedly suggest he thought Yuuri would be able to get there, too. And Yuuri replied with a ‘casual’ “oh yeah because you do it all the time…” in all seriousness.

(Yuzuru wouldn’t start doing that until the 2014 Winter Olympics. In fact… NOBODY was doing that until Yuzuru Hanyu was doing that. And almost NOBODY is doing that to this very day, except Yuzuru Hanyu.)

Yuuri Katsuki: 

Yuuri is getting there, with Victor’s help. His Grand Prix Final Short program score of 106 would have been GROUND BREAKING in 2014. Yuzuru Hanyu wouldn’t score that high until the 2015 NHK Trophy – and immediately followed it up with a mind-boggling 110.56 at the 2016 World Figure Skating Championships just March.

I want you to understand why I lost my literal shit when Yuuri Squinted at the score in the GPF and they announced it at 106. 

NOBODY but Yuzuru Hanyu has scored that high.  In fact, Yuzuru holds the top two spots in short program scores for all history AND the top score in the free skate at over 200 (219.48 to be exact), which is just as mind-blowing as a 106 SP Score.

Yuuri’s Record-breaking Free Skate score in the GPF is 221.58. Again – absolutely GROUND BREAKING. Yuzuru Hanyu would be the first to break 200, and he did it with a 216.07 in the 2015 NHK Trophy, where he was also the first skater to breach the 300 total score mark. 

Yuuri’s Free-Skate score at the GPF is higher than any skater has ever scored in the history of real life figure skating

But before that, Victor had held the world record Free-Skate score for a ‘long time’.

Yuzuru Hanyu’s world record combined total score is 330.43, which he got in the 2015 Grand Prix Final.  Yuuri isn’t quite there, but I imagine we’re going to see our Ice Monsters completely obliterate that. Or at least match it, during the next season. ** VICTOR ALREADY OBLITERATED IT**

You need to STOP boi.

Yuri Plisetsky:

He CRUSHED his Juniors. We don’t have anything official, except that we know he won gold at his last Junior Worlds because he goes hunting Victor to make good on a promise. 

Then he turns around and in his Senior Debut snags two podium spots in the GPF Qualifiers and DESTROYS the world record at the Grand Prix Final. Held by none other than Victor Nikiforov until earlier that same day, when Yuuri CRUSHED IT. 

With his world record GPF Score and Gold Medal at 15 FRICKING YEARS OLD, He’s already proving he’s the next Bakemono no Aisu.. no .. we can do better than that..   YOUKAISU !! 

((IF you aren’t watching Yuzuru Hanyu, you should be. Watch for him in March/April at Worlds, Oct-Nov for the GPF Qualifiers, and very probably in December for the Grand Prix Final. ))

***NOTE: OP is only a casual fan of Figure Skating and may have made mistakes - but did his best to research what he could to make sure he was gushing as close to the truth as he could manage.*** 

Also. 

Watch Yuzuru Hanyu. Because if you want to see where Yurio is going to be next season, that’s where to look. 

**Couple of edits, due to some feedback - namely the WFSC record for number of consecutive golds - I’d like to point out that people prior to WW2 were pulling in as many as 10 … but that was Ulrich Salchow who was a pioneer in the building of the sport to what it is today, so I’ve chosen to go with post WW2 as that is what we would consider ‘modern’ figure skating.** 

** Thanks for the notes/messages you guys! I’m so stoked to see other casual fans willing to gush (and help) about IRL Skaters and records, and how fricking Extra our boys are.** 

Hot For Teacher - Ian Thomas/Alison Crush (Master Theory)

Some of you were unsure of our Hot For Teacher being about Ian Thomas so here’s what we’ve gathered that indicates he is the one she wrote about in her diary entry and that he could be the starting point of the whole ordeal/master plan of A.

Ali wrote ‘Hot for Teacher’ when she spotted Ian interviewing for a teaching position at Rosewood High. In the 4.24 'A is for Answers’ we spotted his resume in the top right hand corner of Ian’s laptop.

This also goes with another clue that we mentioned in our 4.15 recap post:

Alison wanted to learn to use the field hockey stick to preferably get Ian’s attention. The one thing we aren’t sure about is if the flashback was before or after the Ian and Spencer kiss. We are thinking that since she saw him interviewing then she possibly had some idea of what position he was applying for. Which could have sparked her sudden interest in field hockey, meaning the above scene could have taken place before the Ian and Spencer kiss.

If that is the case, then this would explain why Ali was a bit pissed when she spotted her crush kissing her BFF. Also, it clears up what Ian meant when he told Spencer 'see you on the field.’ He could’ve received the coach position during this time since Spencer mentioned that she and Ian “had a moment, early in the summer before Ali went missing” (1.10). Meaning, if Ali hadn’t disappeared he would have started his new job at Rosewood High the beginning of their Sophmore year.

After spotting the kiss, Ali would by any means taunt Spencer until she tell Melissa about the kiss. But sadly it didn’t go down that way. Spencer threatened Ali that she would 'tell everyone the truth about the Jenna Thing’ which is what pissed Ali off even more. Not only did her BFF steal her crush, but she also heard her crush say “she doesn’t mean anything to me” when she and Ian were at Hilton head.

I don’t know if you guys have ever seen the Alicia Silverstone movie The Crush (1993), I think the Ali, Ian, Spencer, and Melissa thing is pretty similar to that movie.

A journalist becomes the unwanted center of attention for a 14-year-old girl whom proceeds to sabotage his life after he refuses her sexual advances. Read More about the movie HERE. I also posted the video link for you guys to view the trailer.

I believe that Ian’s remark pushed her over the deep end and she basically snapped in the worst way, seeking revenge in the cruelest way possible. Ali was in love with an older guy and apparently she wanted to be loved back. If you guys remember in (1.18), Ian told Spencer that “Ali was a psycho stalker, who wouldn’t take no for an answer.” Meaning he was telling the truth. Also, this lead to the newspaper the girls found in 2.23, Labor Day Events for Philadelphia, Brookhaven, and Rosewood…a trail of Ali’s events after she left Ian in Hilton Head.

  1. Her first stop was to make sure Spencer’s threat never surface (the truth about the Jenna Thing), and that was to keep Jenna Marshall quiet with the blackmail. (Philadelphia - Jenna)

  2. Meeting with -A (Mona) her tormentor and possibly settling on a deal that will make both girls happy. I want to point out one more thing with this flashback, a lot of you claim that Mona was lying, I don’t think she was, Mona even told Spencer in 2.25 that Ali was “spying on a guy she had a crush on.” Spencer confirmed she was seeing Ian that summer. If so, when Mona saw Ali in Brookhaven Ali was indeed spying on someone, my guess is it was Ian and Spencer.  (Brookhaven - Mona

  3. Hiding the videos in a storage unit in Rosewood as a way to make sure her two new BFF's  (Jenna and Mona) stay on her team. (More on this towards the end) Ali also wanted to give Spencer one last chance to tell Melissa about her and Ian but Spencer wasn’t backing down which meant Ali had reason to give up on her friends because evidently the girls were on Spencer’s side as stated by Spence during the argument. (Rosewood - Spencer, Ian, & Melissa)

AlI was calling Beach Hottie or Board Shorts obsessively all summer, I seriously think the guy she was calling was Beach Hottie, who I believe was Ian Thomas.

I recall episode 4.02, Spencer told Hanna and Aria that “I’m guessing Ali called Beach Hottie-” Hanna quickly corrected her saying “Board Shorts” Review the trailer I posted above and you will see how Alicia Silverstone, who played Dorian, called Nick obsessively. We believe this is exactly how Ali was calling Ian from Georgia that summer.

The summer in Cape May, also unlocks even more secrets from that summer.

Alison’s obsession with Ian possibly traveled to the shores of Cape May where Melissa (who CeCe claimed to have took the picture) and possibly Ian spent their last moments before she finally broke it off . The Cape May visit took place before Ian and Ali were in Hilton Head, as it was earlier in the summer. Therefore, when Ali told CeCe that she was pregnant (3.17) she could have been lying all along to get some sort of sympathy from CeCe and make it seem as though the guy would kill her. Melissa broke up with Ian after finding out he could have gotten some other girl pregnant.

There’s a strong possibility that Ali has had a trail of crushes with older guys and the mysterious deaths of Ian, Garret, and Wilden were all crushes ending in a gruesome way.

Ever notice how all of the liars boyfriend’s were involved with Ali first.

Notice the tweet from Bryan Holdman. Now with Paige, we aren’t sure of a crush with her but if Ali did have one she was possibly unsure of her sexuality and therefore hated Paige because she was into Emily. We all know how Emily is Ali’s favorite. She could have plotted to expose Paige as a way for her to stop looking at Emily with “goo goo eyes”. W e posted the blog entry here.

Therefore, we are not backing off our Ali killed Ian theory, because we seriously believe she killed him. Our original theories below :

Retracing the Events at the Bell Tower - Did Ali Kill Ian?

We’ve been trying to figure out what exactly happened to Ian Thomas as well as, why Noel Kahn was in the finale.

The Bell Tower:

1. She hit her head and never woke up …

During the struggle between Spencer and Ian at the Bell Tower, Ian recites a possible suicide note for Spencer as he proceeds to unsuccessfully push her from the tower. He also mention this:

And the letter, the one I wrote on your computer won’t answer all of the questions but, it’ll answer enough.

At this moment we learn that Ian had Spencer’s suicide planned out.

2. What are you doing here …

As Spencer was dangling from the tower, a black hoodie walks up and Ian instantly recognizes this person. His shocking response was none other than “What are you doing here?” The widening of his eyes showed that he was shocked/surprised to see this person. In the 4B finale this hooded person was revealed as being Alison DiLaurentis.

The girl thought to be dead during this particular scene but, Ian’s reaction wasn’t that of a person seeing a ghost but more of a person he hadn’t seen in a while (if that makes sense). His reaction wasn’t shocking enough for a person who was seeing someone who was presumed dead, which made us wonder if he knew Ali wasn’t dead.

As hooded Ali knocked Ian off the tower, she quickly walks away to get out of sight.

3. You did what you had to do …

As the liars try to comfort Spencer, Ian is left dangling in the ropes; a rope around his neck and one underneath his arm. You have to wonder how he managed to untangle himself when he could have easily been hung to death from the ropes. This is impossible to do for a person hanging at the feet he was, also we reviewed the screen cap of his body hanging and noticed that the ropes were carefully knotted in certain spots and there was a main rope leading out and away from where he was hanging. We believe this is how he was pulled down and we question Ali’s story.

Ali said that she was waiting in the back and that she saw him, “he was still alive.” If Ian wasn’t dead and was just unconscious, then who pulled him down? Besides the Liars, Ali confirmed she was there at the scene, Mona claimed in 4.01 that “I didn’t push Ian from the Bell Tower. I wish I knew who did,” and Noel Kahn was in the crowd. Therefore, we figured that Ali and Noel Kahn could have worked together during this time to pull Ian down from the ropes and put him in a car out back.

We’re suspecting Ali and Noel because he had to have served some sort of purpose to what happened at the Bell Tower especially since he was seen standing in the crowd that night. In the finale he was the one who was helping her so it’s possible he knew about her being alive for some time. Also, Ali had a few reasons to kill Ian; a broken heart from Hilton Head, the risk of him telling others that she’s alive.

4. He’s been dead over a week …

Ian was dead longer than a week, this was mentioned by Melissa. If Ian was dead longer than a week than we assume that after his body was taken from the Bell Tower Ali and Noel decided to make it look like a suicide. We also suspect Ali because she wore the black hoodie that night at the Bell Tower and Ian could have very well been dead after falling into the ropes, but he was shot in the head to make it seem like a suicide.

The person who murdered him was seen in 2.04 putting Ian’s phone into Spencer’s bag. Remember this is the same person who was texting Melissa and asking for drugs. We still believe this to be Ali because who would want to see Melissa hurt more than Ali.

  1. Melissa was threatening Ali during the summer of her disappearance and she followed Ali and Ian to Hilton Head.
  2. Melissa told Ian that “if he saw Ali again someone would get hurt.” That sounded like fighting words to me, so “game on b-tch!”
  3. Ian said he was just “killing time until something better came along” - she was young and this was probably her first crush so to hear those words was very upsetting.

5. I killed Alison …

The suicide note. We decided to review Ian’s suicide note:

I killed Alison. I lost my temper because she knew too much. But there’s only so much you can bury. It won’t be that easy, but I know how to get rid of the pain. I can’t run from the law. Com and find me.

After reading this letter we matched it up with some things from what we saw in the season finale and this is what helped us with this theory that Ali could have possibly killed Ian (please click the link above for the photos). Because she didn’t deny or say if she did or didn’t, no one bothered to ask.

A list of things to think about as to why Ali is the number one suspect:

  • Ali wore the black hoodie
  • Ali’s stories doesn’t match up with Mona’s, they share some of the same events but are slightly different. Who do you believe?
  • Ali told Hanna “the four of them combined remember more about that night than they think they do.” Meaning the girls memory from that night is still gone and have yet to surface. Therefore, could Ali’s story be the truth are a lie?

Ali is Black Veil

Did Ali kill Ian - Part 2 (Better Explanation)

To break down our Bell Tower theory so that it is not confusing for you guys because I know a lot of you said you were confused :)

The story Ali told the liars in the finale could have been half truth and half lies. Remember Ali told Hanna that they “remember more about that night than they think they do.”

What we were implying with the Bell Tower theory was that Ali was setting up Spencer and the other liars because they can’t seem to remember what exactly happened the night of her disappearance. The four liars can’t remember that they were the ones who tried to kill Ali and buried her alive. They only have bits and pieces from what actually happened that night.

Ali only told the liars in the 4B finale ‘A is for Answers’ that her own mother did it because she realize that the girls still don’t remember. 

Noel have been helping Ali this whole time and the night of the Bell Tower incident the ropes were set up for Spencer (probably) but Ali realizes she does not want Spencer dead but perhaps to continue torturing her that’s when she emerges to knock Ian from the Bell Tower.

She and Noel pulled Ian’s body down from the ropes and placed his body in the trunk of a car out back. That is why we see Noel appear out of the blue in the crowd the night of the incident.

After Spencer pawned Melissa’s wedding ring, Ali/A paid to get it back out and gave the guy a horse shoe which was missing from the barn that Ian’s body was found in. The horse shoe was a symbolization of Spencer and all of her races won from horseback riding.

Ali shot Ian in the head in that barn to make it look like it was a suicide but she composed the letter out of the texts and messages that she’d sent the liars. The messages were clues relating to the night that she disappeared.

Also, Ian’s suicide note were all texts from - -A, meaning that - -A was Ali and the other -A was Mona.

Ali was setting the girls up and torturing them because they tried to kill her. We broke down Ian’s suicide note here but we will explain what it means:

I killed Alison - meant that the four liars attempted to kill Alison that night, either by shovel, or rock, or field hockey stick.

I lost  my temper because she knew too much - This meant that Ali knew too many secrets about the liars and were using these secrets against them. The liars were fed up with her bullying them so they decided to take action the night of the slumber party.

But there’s only so much you can bury - Meant that although the liars thought that by killing Ali (who isn’t dead) would free them of her and exposing their secrets they were wrong because although you buried the secrets, they will eventually emerge.

It won’t be that easy, - This meant that although Ali was young and manipulative she wasn’t dumb, she knew that one day the girls would turn on her, so she planned for Grunwald to show up that night and rescue her.

But I know how to get rid of the pain. - Meant that Ali had a plan of revenge and although and she would use an unexpected person (Mona) to help plan out her revenge against the girls.

I can’t run from the law - This meant that Ali knew that one day she will be discovered as not dead, and she will face the consequences.

Come and find me - This meant that Ali was still in charge of the liars and although their secrets were thought to be buried with the she-devil, she was more alive than ever. Therefore, seek me out.

———————————————————————————-

Back to the theory:

Ali was texting Melissa from Ian’s phone because she was the one with his body, and this was a way for her to get back at Melissa for what she said at Hilton Head.

She decided that after they discovered Ian’s body that she would frame Spencer by placing the phone into Spencer’s bag and call when she and Melissa were together.

This goes into play with Ali telling Spencer to tell Melissa about her and Ian but Spencer couldn’t/wouldn’t do it.

We don’t know if this is the route the writers are taking but we love making theories and we really enjoy piecing together plot holes, so this theory was really fun to work on :)

Ali wAs sleeping at the KAhn’s!!!!!

Ali was sleeping at the Kahn’s during the same time that Maya was. Also, this would explain the whole “Maya Knew” thing. Maya knew about Ali being alive, not that Nate was in town like we were told.

Therefore, if Maya knew Ali was alive Maya perhaps, knew that Ali was the one who was torturing the girls.

Another thing to justify that Ali was involved is that we believe she was the one who was looking through Maya’s bag and took the pills from Maya’s bag. We believe she has been drugging the liars which explains their prolonged memory  loss. This is why the girls can’t seem to remember what exactly happened the night of Ali’s disappearance.

This also explains why A was seen looking at Emily’s picture as she was.

I have so much more to add to this, . . but first I need sleep, I’ve been working on this since yesterday.
