Kingdom Hearts…. Ice Skating.

KINGDOM HEARTS ICE SKATING!!!

KINGDOM HEARTS ICE SKATING!!!!!!!!

KINGDOM HEARTS ICE SKATING!!!!!!!!!!!

what makes the Welcome to the Madness exhibition skate even funnier is that on ONE HAND we have a pair like Viktor and Yuuri:

looking at each other in pure love and admiration

doing romantic lifts

sensually caressing each other’s faces 

AND ON THE OTHER HAND WE HAVE YURIO AND OTABEK PERFORMING TOGETHER

WHO JUST

FINGER GUNS

tfw you double a quad combination and so you then throw in a quad-double and a triple axel and end up with a season’s best high score 

4 types of clapping demonstrated by Figure Skaters

Okay, here we go:

  1. The “That was awesome!”-type. Usually used when feeling a great amount of joy and amazement.

       2.  The “You rock! Keep going!”-type. Often seen when people feel the              urge to cheer on performers they’d like to continue performing and/or                as a sign of support.

      3. The “I’ve no idea what I’m doing but I don’t want to be rude”-type.            Executed when a person did miss the reason for cheering but still desires          to be polite.

      4. … and then there is Yuzuru Hanyu

ZEBRASWAN IS BACK. Ahhhh.

Someone give me seventeen-year-old Yakov Feltsman at the 1964 Olympics wearing bell-bottoms and a peasant shirt with a scarf around his head, hair cut into a moptop and skating to The Twist. He landed the first triple flip in competition and, in an interview, announced that his inspiration was the most beautiful girl he’d ever met, his girlfriend of three weeks Lilia Baranovskaya.

Yakov’s coach is banging his head against a wall somewhere just off camera.

Forty years later and Viktor Nikiforov, he of the fae-like looks and waist-length silver hair, wants to wear a bondage costume on the ice and Yakov can’t even tell him not to because when he tries Viktor starts screaming “COME ON BABY LET’S DO THE TWIST” and Yakov is immediately paralyzed with shame.

“I mean, really, you have no room to talk,” Lilia tells him, examining her nails as Viktor announces that he’s engaged to a skater he’s barely known for eight months. Who he’s still actively coaching.

Yuri shows up in his exhibition skate outfit and doesn’t even wait for Yakov to open his mouth before he’s holding up a picture–an actual printed picture where did he find it–in full color of Yakov on the podium at the 1964 Olympics.

“Bell bottoms, old man?” he says, flipping his hair as he skates onto the ice.

(Lilia frames the picture. It hangs in her office underneath a laminated poster reading “Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it”)

On May 26, 2017, Yuzuru Hanyu revealed his short program for the Olympic season at the first show of Fantasy on Ice (Makuhari). He will skate to Frederic Chopin’s Ballade no.1 again for the third season, debuting a different jump layout of 4lo, 3a, and a second half 4t-3t combination. (x

Yuri!!! On Stage Event Report!

So today (4/29/2017) I went to the Yuri on Ice Yuri on Stage event. To clarify though, I was not at the actual Tokyo event, rather a live viewing at a local movie theater. Which of course does alter the experience but it’s the next best thing. At first I thought the theater was only doing the afternoon session, but very last minute I ended up being able to attend both!

Yuuri’s costumes from my Viktuuri time travel fic <3 

Trying to keep elements of the canon costumes while also changing things up is hard OTL, but this was generally what I had in mind :0

Friend: i don’t think yoi is a good anime

Me: i don’t think you know what you are talking about

soooo….competitive figure skating Voltron AU? (there’ll be more to come w Shatt, Pidge/Shiro as a duo, coach Allura and PT Hunk! :D)

Almost all of these poses are ref’d from routines of Yuzuru Hanyuu! He’s got such a beautiful style of figure skating, with lots of flair and flamboyance, it felt really fitting for these two ^-^
