the olympics!

So Yuzu brought back his SP and FP from season 2015/2017, wich I’m not even gonna complain about, because those are my favourite programmes from him (especially Seimei) AND he is breaking (his own) word records WITH HIS KNEE HURTING - despite how he usually starts in the beginning of the season. And how did I miss watching him skate <3

Shoma is also breaking record, MISHA IS BACK (wich was a huge suprise to me today when I saw it on instagram coz I didn’t watch ACl live, I’m catching up now); Javi is his usually beautiful javi-self, JASON IS SKATING TO HAMILTON and I’m just sitting here, awed.

On the girl’s side I only watched Zhenya yet, who is also breaking word records btw. (And is flawless as always)

Oohhh man this is going to be an epic Olympic Season

•the first Olympics Neil plays in Andrew didn’t make Court because of ~~attitude problems~~
•they make the final and it’s against Japan
•hearing the yelling of Japanese instructions across the court put Neil and Kevin on the back foot because they are immediately back in the nest in their heads
•they only snap out of it when Jeremy whacks them on the helmet like Andrew would have done
•after half time they get their shit together enough to be able to interject most of Japan’s plays since they can understand what the instructions are
•it comes down to 13:13 in the last five minutes
•Josten the little shit has so enraged his defender by this point that he makes such stupid mistakes Neil may as well not have a defender
•queue the perfect assist to the perfect final goal scored by Kevin in the last 2 minutes
•Kevin and Neil fall on each other and hug it out like the bros they are because this is what they have been working towards since they were 5 and they made it despite all the fuckers who tried to stop them
•Jeremy as captain tries to organise the team into something resembling a straight line to proceed to the ceremony
•as the team passes the stands Neil sees the foxes and immediately breaks formation,
Dragging Kevin with him
•the other team members ignore them, very used to these weird antics
•everyone made it
•Dan and Matt are sitting with their beautiful daughter between them, all three decked out in red white and blue with orange accessories, all stomping their feet
•matt may or may not be crying (but his baby boy just won the Olympics let him have this)
•Renee dyed her hair orange and dressed patriotically and is beaming at them
•Allison looks every bit the runway model but stooped far enough to attach a fox paw pin to her jacket
•Nicky and Erik are covered head to toe in sparkles and streamers and carrying huge We <3 Josten We <3 Day posters
•Aaron looks sullen sitting next to a beaming and very pregnant Katelyn
•his nod to the boys means more than he thinks
•Andrew
•Andrew is there and dressed in all black because he’ll be damned if the Olympics of all things makes him change
•Neil swears he can see a glimmer of pride in his eyes but before he can be sure he’s practically pulled over the bannister into hugs from his family
•it’s so much Neil has to stop and wait take it all in while everyone around him is happy
•happy for him
•the smile that covers his face is breathtaking
•this shouldn’t still be affecting you, Andrew thinks, because after all these years he can no longer convince himself that this is nothing
•hey junkie
•Neil’s total focus goes on Andrew and before he can say anything
•yes
•the small private and infinitely more genuine smile that covers Neil'a face still makes Andrew want to strike out even after all these years because this is so far from nothing
•the kiss isn’t particularly long or passionate (mainly because your boy Neil couldn’t stop smiling) but it only ends when Kevin yanks Neil away muttering about reputation
•the next morning Andrew and Neil are rudely awakened by a shriek of outrage
•YOU RUINED THE HEADLINES YOU FUCKERS
•suffice to say Kevin was not best pleased that the headline which should have read USA wins Olympic gold for Exy actually says
USA national team’s Neil Josten comes out with teammate Andrew Minyard at Olympic final
•back in the PR office the agents throw out weeks worth of documents planning the coming out
