I can't believe I've just now gotten over to Emily and Ian's FF:bow: thank you, @GoneWithTheWind !! I suppose it's because I've spent so much time re-watching their Good-Bye Yellow Brick Road FS from 4CC.

Does anyone have a link to their Nationals or GS skates? Of course I used to have them on Peacock ... and hope they'll be restored ASAP.

I am just obsessed with Emily and Ian. They're one of the most natural couples in ID I've ever seen. I love that Emily said in the interview linked above that their skating feels so natural because of their similar styles and knee bend. Even more impressive is that Charlie and Greg incorporated Emily and Ian's ideas about elements and so forth into their FS when they choreographed it.

And they literally don't look like anyone else when they skate. They are unique; they're themselves.

Literally the only thing I've been annoyed with is how Tanith played down their strengths in the Nationals commentary. I understand why; she doesn't want her coaching to affect her commentary. But still. I certainly appreciated Johnny's sincere appreciation of them! I hope they can keep their youthful joy in skating together. It's so contagious. ❤️
