when you almost forget you’re supposed to appear human
i’ve…tried 3 times to write a coherent explanation about yunamao and i just. can’t. it’s not something that i can dissect and explain. it’s one of those things where…you either get it or you don’t.
#it’s such a jumble of feelings#the young girls who might have formed the beginning of a friendship before things changed#the prodigies who burst onto the senior scene swapping podium places at every competition#so different but similar and always always compared under constant media attention#challenging and motivating and maybe changing each other#becoming more than themselves - symbols of their nations upholding the expectations of millions#going through their own personal struggles and fighting towards the end - an ending - in sochi#being able to end it on their own terms.#’i think i’ll remember her the most’#’we both did it. and i’m glad.’#and - always friendly with each other but never quite friends#and i can’t help but wish they had been#and that they’d both medaled in sochi so they could finish what they started together.#you don’t have to like both of them but they are both legendary in their own right#and their legacies will stand for a long time#(i said i couldn’t write a COHERENT essay ok so here’s a very incoherent one)
