HE’S SUCH A BABY OH MY GOD :33333333
being an american skating fan is like having your parents insistently set you up on a whole bunch of awful dates and getting all your friends to talk to you constantly about how great the people are and pressuring you to commit to them and ignoring you when you say you just don’t like them
the dates are gracie gold and denney/coughlin, your parents are USFS and your friends are scott hamilton and sandra bezic
ahahahahaha man you gotta tell me who you are we gotta stick together
• when or if I started shipping it. PRETTY IMMEDIATELY MY FRIEND
• my thoughts: god i love ice dance/pairs ships and how so much of it is about how you still work together even when things happen and just I HEARD RUMORS THAT THEY USED TO DATE AND THAT MEANS THAT I AM PRIMARILY NOT OK
• What makes me happy about them: HAHAHA EVERYTHING FACES THE DIRTY DANCING EX WHERE HE KISSES HER FACE BC SHE INJURED HER NOSE
• What makes me sad about them: WHEN HE FUCKED UP AT WORLDS AND WALKED OUT OF THE K&C AND SHE WAS BASICALLY CRYING NOPE
• things done in art/fic that annoys me: THER EIS NO ART/FIC
• things I look for in art/fic: THERE IS NO ART/FIC
• Who I’d be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other: NONE ALTHOUGH I GUESS NATHALIE/VERNER IS OK
• My happily ever after for them: WINNING WORLDS AND DISCOVERING THAT THEY ARE REALLY INTO EACH OTHER AND HAVING REALLY GREAT SEX
• what is their favorite non-sexual activity? WATCHING MOVIES TOGETHER IN BED IN A REALLY PLATONIC THIS IS OUR DAY OFF FROM SKATING WAY
final fantasy x
favourite female character: yuuuuuuna. such a warrior spirit in such a tiny person. strength and silence are not mutually exclusive!!! just wants to keep the world safe, even at the cost of her own life. /sighs
favourite male character: probably wakka tbh? i know he’s kind of a dumbo but older brother feelings! and failing his brother and not knowing how to deal with it! and trying to make up for it after the fact by being an older brother figure to yuna!
least favourite female character: lol well yunalesca’s pretty ridiculous right
least favourite male character: i don’t actually like jecht that much???? like the game is like pretty strong on trying to get you to see him as someone who reforms and learns better but like way to kind of abuse your kid (and wife?? in implication, anyway) there dude
favourite ship: tidus/yuna. she needs it to complete her quest, man. he disappears on her!!!!!! is there anything that does not have my name completely written on it other than those two things
least favourite ship: i think i saw a kimahri/yuna fic once and NO.
film/tv show rating: 9/10. this game is so pretty, i love the gameplay and it’s fairly short in comparison to the other sagas and it’s just a lot.
figure skating (you’re funny)
favourite female character: all time: michelle kwan. this season: mao asada. when she decided to take the time and try to fix all her jumps even tho that meant a botched season, gooooosh. also talk about being incredibly graceful in the wake of personal tragedy and just wanting to push the sport to new places. (the story of her learning her like adaptation on one-handed biellman was a lot. also I’M GONNA MAKE THE 3A MY SIGNATURE JUMP yeah okay)
favourite male character: daisuke takahashi. just so much of everything. face, footwork, FACE. shining prince.
least favourite female character: haha of the season? gracie gold, and for promotional reasons more than anything else.
least favourite male character: evan lysol. i know he’s trying to come back tho and idk if he can make it by then but man were my feelings on him rather pronounced in 2010
favourite ship: real ships: gordeeva/grinkov is heartbreaking and just. shen/zhao is a lot. fluffy and cute he proposed to her after 07 worlds don’t look at me. (fake ships: i’m still really endeared to yuna/pchan and i am really into like i/k as a ship and also pechalat/bourzat as a ship. don’t look at me.)
least favourite ship: look i still don’t know if they’re true or not but the rumors abt morozov and elena still creep me out like no one’s business, i want i/k as far away from him as possible but will it ever happen WHO KNOWS (also fucking morozov and EVERYONE)
film/tv show rating: 5/10, painful yet occasionally wonderful, painful yet occasionally remembers that it likes you, PAINFUL PAINFUL PAINFUL, pls sense the pattern
