Alexandra Stepanova & Ivan Bukin
I really enjoy their FD this season and have a feeling that this team is going to achieve much more things in future.

Their reaction after seeing the scores was amazing!!
I've liked them for a while now, and thanks for starting the thread. I think they are very promising and I look forward to them improving.
And on a non-skating note: They are simply gorgeous.
Agree! I saw them in person during JGP Bosphorus Cup 2012 and they were like Hollywood stars fascinating people around their way when they walk!!

They've received some flak for their SS and TAT's overhype, but I really appreciate how different they try to be.
Their FD took a while to click with me, but I suddenly "got it" at Nationals. And they were, of course, very cute in the K&C.
Welcome S/B!!!!!! You are one of my favorites team. You reminded me of the old great Russian ice dancers.
