Exams over, and I'll post here to show that this journal is not dead yet. I had a strange idea last night and my sister agrees with me that it makes a lot of sense , so I'll just put it here.

I have found a way to cross figure skating and ice hockey. Kim Yuna is Sidney Crosby obviously, she's a legend at 20. This makes Mao Asada Ovechkin, Sidney is the okay-looking one to Ovechkin's fugly, Yuna is beautiful to Mao's pretty.
Michelle Kwan is Mario or Gretzky, Yuna says she grew up watching and admiring Michelle so this makes a lot of sense.
Mirai Nagasu is John Tavares because she is the next big thing. Caroline Zhang is Angelo Esposito I guess because they've both fallen off the track in terms of development. I'll add more when I can think of a way to do so.

These are somebody's parents and his brother--I had to blank out his face or it would be way too obvious.

DBSK fic!

This was dedicated to me and I know for a fact that it's excellent cos I've been reading it over the author's shoulder as it was being written.

It's a Yunchun, which is my favourite pairing. There's so much room for exploration of characters and feelings due to the combination of, perhaps clashing, personalities. I love the writing style, there's a naturalness that most fic lacks. And the emotional depth and characterisation is moving and it really struck a chord with me.

I love Yunho here. He's exactly as he would be in real life--kind, mature, responsible, thoughtful. Not at all the macho neanderthal he's made out to be in a lot of fic. He has his weaknesses as well, and his struggles are considered beautifully in this story.

And, well, the plotting is brilliant: Yoochun is a transexual, Yunho falls for her without knowing. Eventually the conflict must emerge.

Here's an exerpt from the beginning.

'Yunho's fascination with lost souls began in the dreamy time before he turned ten. Perhaps it was because he had seen so many of them when he accompanied his mother to soup kitchens at their church.

Yunho remembered being a restless five, six, seven year old in the stuffy back room, unable to help chop the vegetables (that were brown at the tips, unlike those at home) or stir the porridge over the stove. But every fortnight he would jump at the chance to go, just to see them emerge, the withered creatures who were usually invisible to him: the poor who slept in hidden corners of train stations and under bridges, runaway teenagers, the old who had been thrown out of their homes. He stood out like a sore thumb among the group of middle aged women, the church committee, as they spooned food into disposable paper plates and plastic bowls and told these visitors to eat well and come again as if they were any ordinary guests. Yunho would be sitting on three chairs stacked up high and gaze at the queue of people with glittering eyes, searching for stories behind the faces that had closed and withered, wishing hard to put himself behind their eyes.

That was half a life ago, but he still retained an insatiable hunger for the twilight, the dark spot in a sunny garden. Like a cypress tree.'

So, please go read it!!!

Chris Mabee retired. Not that I'm upset or surprised, but well, it just made me sad. He's spent 12 years on this, been mediocre even within Canada, he's finally quit because he didn't want to compete anymore, and he's doing ice shows, but not SOI--he's doing HSM on Ice, and something on a cruise ship.

I can't really express my feelings right now... I don't know. I wish he would go to school and get a degree, get a proper job instead of doing something that is a shadow of a shadow of his dream, even if it's not his dream anymore. Perhaps that makes it even less than if it were.

I hate it when it comes to this. For myself or anyone else.

Oh my, Jeff's choreographing for Fedor... he's on his way to working with tall men... like Evan! Hahahaha

I can't wait to see what he's done for Fedor, it's worth looking at the article too to read his words on Fedor... truly worthy of reproduction. I mean, Oh! Fedor is sexy and good looking and masculine and strong!!! Swoon!!!

Not really but still strange, then again, Jeff is the type of guy who talks twee. I think it 's worth holding one's breath for though--the programs he made--he said he worked on Yu-Na Kim's SP several years ago. I was ever directed to the programs she won Junior Worlds in 2006 with regards to this subject--the programs Jeff choreographed--the SP in particular was lovely. Of course, I have no idea if that was actually his work, it was only a skating forum.

I'm happy that Fedor is skating again, on top of all this. He's wonderful.

Stephane Lambiel retired. This is old news really, but I just put it up here for posterity.

He's young and brilliant and sadly, injured. I thought some of his comments in some articles I read sounded quite bitter. I feel so sorry and sad for him.



Even older news, Naomi Nari Nam retired because her hip can't take it anymore. This is the second retirement of sorts in her career--she used to be a very gifted up-and-coming singles skater until her injury ended that.

I guess that's the very last of the Baby Ballerinas*, since Sasha Cohen is most probably not returning.

*Sarah Hughes, A.P. Mcdonough, Sasha Cohen, Naomi Nari Nam, Deanna Stellato, Jennifer Kirk.... not sure if I'm missing anyone, but most are hardly relevant anymore. It's all in the distant past anyway. : (

Okay, so there's no real reason for me to live anymore.

I was so looking forward to next season!!!!

Jeff, I will always love you. I just wish you didn't have to go when I just arrived. You've always been my favourite for some inexplicable reason. : )
