Jermajesty, Princess J, and Angel Boy for the US Nationals podium 2013. I don't even really know what order I want them in, tbh. Adam in 1st or 2nd, because I am such a stan and I want him placing at least as high as he did this year. Armin, Ross, or Jason Brown for pewter. I feel badly that there is not room for all of them.

I don't know as much about pairs and ice dance other than there are two US teams each that I know I like, so no premature thoughts about that yet. Also I'm less worried, though I would prefer if Denney and Coughlin didn't take first. I worry more about the guys, I guess. But yeah, Shibs & D/W on the ice dance podium and M/B & E/L on the pairs podium please.

As for ladies, I like all of them. I don't stan anyone, but I also wish most of the ladies well. I actually feel kind of proud of myself that, as of right now, I feel like I will be totally happy with any podium as long as I agree with the judging.

I should be focused on Worlds, or figuring out what Juniors I like, or doing my homework like a responsible student who wants to let herself get a decent amount of sleep tonight and tomorrow, but nope.

Not watching men's fs live because a friend decided to do a birthday thing tonight.

I know, you're all heartbroken.

Only gonna liveblog these ladies if I have more to say than "not bad," "good costume," "good music" etc. Because of that, I'm probably only going to talk about one skater in group 3 and dedicate most of this to group 4 (plus some side comments).
here we go )

I think I'm not going to liveblog this last group, but I'm wishing Caroline the best!

I decided not to liveblog the men's here last night, but I'm going to try doing the ladies' here. Hopefully I'mm be less emotional about it than I was last night, because while I love the ladies I'm not as opinionated. As long as Ashley does well I'm good. Same for Mao, I guess, but it's hard to actually worry about whether she'll do a good job. I mean, she's Mao Asada. This'll probably be a really long post, followed by more long posts.
keeping all my thoughts under here )
I gotta do the twitter liveblogging thing, it looks like, but I feel badly posting lots in a row. Also I can't remember my password.

so excited

4 Continents starts tomorrow night. I'm skipping the second half of a club meeting to I can watch live because I decided to pay for a pass to watch 4CCs and Worlds online.

As I may have said in an earlier post, I'm not well-versed in the different skaters yet (esp. not pairs and ice dancing or anything below seniors) and I have mostly seen US people since watching Nats is what got me so into skating, but here is who I am rooting for, in order of where their names appeared on the list online:

Men: Daisuke Takahashi, Denis Ten, Ross Miner, and Adam Rippon (natch).

Ladies: Mao Asada, Victoria Muniz (because she is reps Puerto Rico and is from Guam, and I have feelings about the US territories; idgaf if she has no chance at getting on the podium), Ashley Wagner, and Caroline Zhang.

Pairs: Not Caydee Denney and John Coughlin.

Ice Dance: Um...whomever I like when I watch?

Working on getting Becca into figure skating. She likes Yu-na Kim so far, because that's who she has watched, and now I have to decide to to get her into next. Teams USA and Japan are my favorites overall, but even narrowing down to that I don't know. I guess current elite senior skaters (as in, not currently retired ones). Mao Asada, Ashley Wagner, and Alissa Czisny are, of course, probably great choices for ladies skaters. For mens I'm thinking Daisuke Takahashi, Yuzuru Hanyu, Adam Rippon, or Jeremy Abbott.

I'm still working on watching more people and finding out who else I like. I mean, right now I know that I prefer skaters to be lyrical, artistic, and good at actually skating with the music, rather than just skating to music, if that makes sense. The ability to emotionally connect is, of course, really good, and I also like nice spins and choreo. Still, I haven't actually watched the majority of good skaters who are currently active (or who were active in the past).

My roommates all think I'm crazy, but for whatever reason skating fandom has gripped me. I figured it would be my other new fandom, Sherlock, that I'd be blathering on about. Nope! All skating all the time.

I'm sorry about posting twice so close together, but man this post is giving me feelings right now.
I had to look up how to do a cut )
mysterismileimport: (esperanza)
I mostly use tumblr now if I want to blog, but I recently have a new fandom obsession that I get the urge to post about so often that I think I should spread it out a little by posting some of those things here.

This of course means the content of my journal will change slightly, so get a more specific focus. I don't expect to as much notice here for opinions compares to tumblr, where the tagging system works well for having people you don't follow find individual posts and "like" them or respond to them, but I mostly need a place to blather about my feelings about figure skating, struggling with wanting to ship skaters without doing so in an AU, and yeah.

At some point I'll probably go through my interests and userpics and stuff to adjust.
