one program per discipline

#4 Pairs | Qing PANG and Jian TONG - The Impossible Dream, 2010 Vancouver FS

I’m not a huge fan of pairs (I hate the death spiral so much for no reason, and for pairs it’s relatively tame). Even though I admit I have not seen a lot, I just know this is one of the best ones out there. Amazing program, inspired performance: truly an olympic moment.

#3 Men | Yuzuru HANYU - Romeo and Juliet, 2012 Worlds FS

This is not his best. Numerous records and medals since this performance proved that. But I still go back to this. He was Romeo, skating to a beautifully choreographed program. Even the fall was timed perfectly to a drop in the music; it’s almost annoying. I know I am an ordinary fan whose opinions hardly matter; so if you would not take my word for it, just consider the fact that this is considered a signature performance even if he had improved leaps and bounds since this debut.

#2 Ice Dance | Tessa VIRTUE and Scott MOIR - Symphony No. 5, 2010 Vancouver FD

Breathtaking is the first word that came to my mind when I first saw this performance. I rewatch it often and every time leaves me feeling the same way. Just go watch it if you haven’t yet, because my words cannot do it justice at all.

#1 Ladies | Mao ASADA - Piano Concerto No. 2, 2014 Sochi FS

It was a beautiful program and I could go on and talk about what makes it objectively great. But I loved this program without knowing any of those technicalities. To put it simply, this performance made me want to follow this sport for real. Seeing it once was enough to convince me to get invested in the journey of Mao Asada; and eventually, other skaters. You won’t be reading an FS post from my FS sideblog if not for Mao, so thank (or blame) her for that.

TL; DR this is all about me and my feelings. more program recommendations here [x]

Narry: Through the Years

Sooo, the other day a Non-Non asked me this:

If you could pick one Narry moment from each year the band has been together, what ones would you choose?

To which, I said:

Hi Non-Non! I have a bit of a problem…limiting myself when it comes to choosing Narry moments. (I tried to do a ‘Top 10’ one time and it turned into ‘Top 100+ and counting’.) Soo can I bargain for like…just favourite moments? I can work with max five from each year? :)

No, I’m really not even kidding or exaggerating when I say it’s next to impossible for me to choose between Narry moments. It’s SO HARD. It’s like, every time I think I’ve got it all figured out I think of something else and then I have rearrange everything. SO, without further ado (and before I can change my mind for the millionth time), here we go:

2010

- Narry Mullingar trip, and how they went from innocent little monkeys:

to [seemingly] naked…monkeys:

- Protective!Niall comforting Harry:

- Proud!Niall hugging bashful!Harry:

- Domestic!Narry doing laundry together:

- Possessive!Harry:

2011

- Niall wants to hold Harry’s hand:

- Harry can’t help himself:

- Harry says Niall looks like a furby:

(and then again in 2012!)

- “Ariiii babes”:

- The day Harry Styles made Narrie hearts melt all over the world:

2012

- Who’s the best kisser? “Niall!”

- Narry making kissy faces:

- Niall stroking Harry’s cheek:

- Flying Start; Clingy!Niall:

- Pt. 2 (because I honest to goodness couldn’t choose and this is one of the moments that had me):

- Narry talking about the time Harry got the Irish pummeled into him:

2013

- “You have the best face.”

- “I’m in love with you, and all Niall’s little things.”

- Miami!Narry:

(Narry getting off the boat together; Niall wearing Harry’s shoes and carrying his own…)

- 1D Day!Narry:

- Ballroom dancing/falling:

2014

- The moment ‘You & I’ became a Narry song too:

- Aria Awards:

- “I’d do Niall.”:

- Niall offering his nuts up for Harry:

- “That was for you!”

2015

- Cake pop!Narry:

- “We are the champions!”:

- “Yes, pet?”:

- “Everything we do!”:

(#1!)

- Mistletoe kiss:

I CANT BELIEVE MY PRECIOUS SONS ARE FIVE YEARS OLD TODAY WHERE HAS THE TIME GONE 😭
