Yuzuru Hanyu’s 2016-2017 FS Hope and Legacy: A (Hypothetical) Clean Performance (Skate Canada x GP Final x 4CC Mashup)

During this run-up to Hellsinki I’ve been binge-re-watching Hope and Legacy and I’m getting increasingly exasperated with all the switching back and forth from this spin from GPF to this step from SC to this jump from 4CC et cetera. So here we go, a clean version of H&L made up of my favorite bits, featuring my imaginary jump layout: 4Lo / 4S / 3F / 4T+2T (instead of the accursed 4S+3T) / 4T / 3A+2T (could be 3A+3T but I’m a sucker for his Rippon 2T so yeah) / 3Lz+1Lo+3S / 3A (I just have to switch up the 3Lz and the 3A because IMO his 4CC yoloaxel is the greatest thing since sliced bread). 

3 days until Worlds. Here’s to the hope that this video will become completely redundant after April 1st.

It's almost time

I have 18 more days until my family drives down to see me. Six months ago my fiancee and I moved about 5 hours away from my family, to another state. They are finally coming to visit us!

Not only does our place have to be in order but so does my health routine.

I haven’t been doing the greatest at sticking to eating all healthy things. I am still going to the gym though. I also have been trying to force myself to drink more water on weekends.

I have 18 days to shape up and lose what I can. It’ll be interesting to see exactly what I can do given a small time crunch. Next measurements are scheduled for the 15th of April.

You know what’s beautiful?

It’s the fact that Viktor always always forgets the promises he makes to almost everyone. But the one drunken request from Yuuri during last year’s GPF banquet? He remembers. And Yuuri has no fucking idea about it.

So God throws open the door of this world—and enters as a baby. As the most vulnerable imaginable. Because He wants unimaginable intimacy with you. What religion ever had a god that wanted such intimacy with us that He came with such vulnerability to us? What God ever came so tender we could touch Him? So fragile that we could break Him? So vulnerable that His bare, beating heart could be hurt? Only the One who loves you to death.
