Here's my Twitter post with YT link to post-FD GPF interview by Ondrej Hotarek, with some screenshots taken :) :) :)

Love seeing they still enjoyed the experience (and my crowns as a gift!). I will try to post my thoughts on GPF performances there this weekend (overtime at work, running crazy in for holiday gifts, booking things for travelling next year takes a lot of time I used to spend writing about skating...), but what brought me so much joy was so much confidence radiating from them, nothing given away from execution standpoint, giving their 100% and leaving it to outside scrutiny. I like that there's just so much authenticity in how they perform, the emotion specifically produced in that very moment that just makes me remember that particular feel about music, movement & picture created. It makes me over-the-moon happy as a someone, being their big fan as you can tell, who was extremely cautious after hearing that FD choice :)

It seems like the couple of weeks that they spent with Marina Zoueva really made a difference this year - they seem more idk solid when they take the ice?

I want to use my 8,000 post there - regardless of what will happen regarding Worlds - if they will be held as planned, if they will be cancelled/postponed/held without public, regardless of eventual results, i want to wish Piper and Paul the best and to say that if Worlds will be held as planned, I will try my darn best to get to Montreal, cheer as loud as I will be able to (possibly) deliver these custom made top hats for RD and merlot crowns for FD. If there will be no possibility to do so/Worlds will be cancelled/postponed/held without public - I vow to make a way to deliver them somehow, because it is because of their work and craft represented by their programs I felt inspired to craft myself :)

Beatrice, thank you for your beautiful post. It is, for me, the most memorable on GS ever :ghug:
