with all the skaters

anonymous asked:

New figure skating fan here! Who all do I watch out for the Men's SP? I can't watch all of them skate, i have no time (ಥ~ಥ)

Hey!

I would recommend the following skaters:

  1. Boyang Jin
  2. Denis Ten
  3. Nathan Chen
  4. Yuzuru Hanyu
  5. Shoma Uno
  6. Javier Fernandez
  7. Patrick Chan
  8. Jason Brown
  9. Mikhail Kolyada
  10. Michal Březina
  11. Maxim Kovtun

All of these skaters have placed pretty highly at Worlds and other international events in the past couple years. Incidentally, this is PRETTY MUCH just the last couple groups. The only one I didn’t list was Alexei Bychenko of Israel. He could have a shot of placing high (he’s the 2016 European silver medalist) though, so we’ll see.  

Basically I’d say if you’re pressed for time just watch the last two groups? If you just go through youtube videos and don’t stay around for all the kiss and cry stuff/waiting for scores, you should be able to breeze through them relatively quickly! SPs are less than three minutes long, after all. 

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.

FINALLY THE MAPPA YOI calendar. Team St. Petersburg, VICTOR BESIDE YUURI, SO SERIOUS AND READY TO KICK SOME ASS. BECAUSE NOW HE’LL WIN GOLD AND GET MARRIED, NO DOUBT ABOUT IT.

EVERYONE’S DRESSED UP. Look at that little makkachin puppy on Victor’s lap, and the katsudon bowl. ALSO A NEARLY NAKED CHRIS… AND THE CUTE TRIO IN THE FAR RIGHT CORNER, MINAMI IT’S FINALLY HERE. 

LOOK AT VICTOR IN THE BACKGROUND, SO PROUD AND CHEERING FOR HIS BEAUTIFUL HUSBAND.

THE “Welcome to the Madness” scene! GOD LOOK AT YURIO’S SMOKY EYES, NEED THAT MAKEUP, VICTOR SINGING HIS HEART OUT ON STAGE, BOTH MILA, SARA AND EMIL AND MICKEY PAIR DANCING.

And look at the back, IT SAYS “HASETSU EXHIBITION, ONSEN ON ICE”. MEANING THEY ALL TRAVEL TO JAPAN AND AND CREATED THEIR OWN PROGRAM TO SHOW.

AT THE END WE HAVE ALL OUR SKATERS IN A FINAL POSE, I’M DYING HERE. BECAUSE PRECIOUS VICTOR IS WEARING A FLOWER CROWN MATCHING YUURI’S OWN POCKET BOUQUET. CHRIS AND PHICHIT ARE SIDE BY SIDE. VICTOR HANGING OFF HIS BEST FRIEND AND HUSBAND. ALSO YURIO’S MAKE UP, AND OTABEK WITH HIS ARM AROUND THE SMALLER BOY. JJ WITH HIS LEATHER JACKET, JUST PERFECT.
