First interview in Helsinki perhaps?
Quick translation of only what Yuzuru said:

Well, I have a tangible feeling that I have done good training.
The quality of training is such that I should be able to execute what I can do at the competitions.

I still do have a sore feeling of regret about the result at 4CC. Of course, I was frustrated with the result and the points, but what was most frustrating was that I couldn’t execute my own performance.
So I think that Worlds is to make a revenge against it.
I hope to demonstrate here at Worlds what kind of performance I can do.

If asked whether I would be happy to do a clean programme by making easier jumps, perhaps that wouldn’t be my skating.  I would still like to challenge difficult jumps, on top of which all elements are executed with high quality, including that of jumps, steps, skating, and spins. I think that is my skating.
So, I don’t have the thought of dropping anything.  My feeling is to elevate the levels of just about everything.
I hope to realise the ultimate programme that I can execute at this stage.

They sat silent for a little, the fireflies drifting down like slow green rain, their silent mating song lighting the darkening grass and trees. Roger’s face was fading as the light failed, though she still saw the line of his jaw, set in determination.
“I swear to ye, Bree,” he said. “Whatever I’m called to now—and God knows what that is—I was called to be your husband first. Your husband and the father of your bairns above all things—and that I always shall be. Whatever I may do, it will not ever be at the price of my family, I promise you.”
“All I want,” she said softly to the dark, “is for you to love me. Not because of what I can do or what I look like, or because I love you—just because I am.”
“Perfect, unconditional love?” he said just as softly. “Some would tell ye only God can love that way—but I can try.”
“Oh, I have faith in you,” she said, and felt the glow of him reach her own heart.
“I hope ye always will,” he said. He raised her hand to his lips, kissed her knuckles in formal salutation, his breath warm on her skin.“

"Permanecieron sentados en silencio durante un rato, con las luciérnagas
descendiendo como una lenta lluvia verde y su muda canción de apareamiento
iluminando la hierba y los árboles que iban oscureciéndose. La cara de Roger iba desapareciendo a medida que la luz se iba, aunque ella todavía podía ver la línea de su mandíbula, en un gesto de determinación.
—Te lo juro, Bree —dijo—. Más allá de lo que esté llamado a hacer ahora, y sólo Dios sabe qué es, primero fui llamado a ser tu marido. Tu marido y el padre de tus hijos, por encima de todas las cosas< y siempre lo seré. Haga lo que haga, no ser{ al precio de mi familia. Te lo prometo.
—Lo único que quiero es que me ames —dijo ella suavemente—. No por lo que yo pueda hacer o por mi aspecto, o porque yo te amo, sino sólo porque soy.
—¿Un amor perfecto, incondicional? Algunos te dirían que sólo Dios puede amar de esa forma< pero puedo intentarlo.
—Oh, yo tengo fe en ti —dijo ella, y sintió que su calor le llegaba al corazón.
—Espero que siempre la tengas —dijo él. Levantó la mano de ella y se la llevó a los labios, le besó los nudillos en un saludo formal, con su cálido aliento contra su piel.”

Daniella gives Natalia a look as her sister goes on and on and on…….

Natalia:  “Don’t look at me like that.”

Dani:  “Like what?”

Natalia:  “Like you’re plotting on using me for your next experiment or something.”

Dani:  “Things would be a lot quieter around here.”

Runaways Legacy History - a synopsis in one post

Music & Lyrics: Sophie Fisher [ENFP]

OFFICIAL TYPING by Charity / the Mod

Extroverted Intuition (Ne): Sophie cannot come up with ideas very well on her own; when Alex sits her in a boring room and demands she come up with lyrics, she pulls a blank – but when other people toss an idea at her, she immediately picks it up and runs with it (her innovating, on the fly, coming up with lyrics out of midair, when Alex is trying to compose with someone else). She argues that being outside “stimulates” the imagination; you see and hear and taste things that give you ideas. Sophie is a natural lyricist, able to come up with creative, weird, original, outside-the-box ideas (“You and me, we’re like a love autopsy!”). She’ll assert something and immediately contradict herself; she can see everyone’s side but – except the Nazis, I’m having a hard time with that one. Alex accuses her of being too idealistic, in wanting everything to work out well and then being crushed by reality.

Introverted Feeling (Fi): She has strong views but is hesitant to voice them; she’s so offended that a pop star wants to sex up their song with “an orgasm set to Gandhi!” that she intends to say something even if it ruins her career as a lyricist. She opens up about her previous boyfriend/teacher and how he’s ruined her life by making her a character in his best-selling novel. Sophie cannot do anything she doesn’t feel good about; after Cora “ruins” their song, she can’t write lyrics for it until she goes home and works through her feelings of anger for Alex.

Extroverted Thinking (Te): “I have no social filter, I’m sorry.” Sophie says whatever comes into her mind, and then has to do a lot of fast talking to make up for it (she implies that Alex is an old has been but that her sister loved his music in high school, she tries to talk Cora out of sexing up their song, etc). She has to rehearse what she intends to say to her ex, and then cannot do it, and becomes tongue tied. She can be blunt, authoritative, and bossy – but she also gets Alex to try things outside his comfort zone (perhaps rearranging the furniture will help the muse flow?). When he makes her angry enough, she can get a lot done in a very short amount of time.

Introverted Sensing (Si): Sophie is a hypochondriac, who freaks out when she pricks her finger on a cactus and rushes off to put antiseptic and a band-aid on it (you cannot be too careful!). Under pressure, she starts having panic attacks, and believes she’s going into “anaphylactic shock.” Sophie is haunted by a single line attacking her creativity and personality in her ex’s novel, and keeps falling back on it as a reason for why her life sucks.
