That certainly came and went quickly. I had a grand time, a blur of Stargate faces mixed with video of Stars on Ice. Dancing around the hotel room, celebrating that I was nowhere near the elevators and could actually sleep. It was almost, dare I say, relaxing. At this point, I've met and gotten autographs from nearly everyone and it was such a relief to skip the evening autograph sessions. The only guest that I took the opportunity to personally meet was Kate Hewlett. Because I love her.( Just a brief summary )
And while all that was happening, I was simultaneously freaking out about Stars on Ice. It was weird - in the room, SOI and Scott/Tessa all the way. Outside the room, I didn't really think about it at all. The first reports trickled in and I was thrilled to pieces to hear that Funny Face had not been adapted into a show piece. I couldn't think of how it would work. Instead, we got word that Tessa and Scott had chosen to skate to Jeff Buckley's Hallelujah. And I promptly died.
The next morning, finding that some amazing awesome attendee had captured most of the show and put it on YouTube made my day just that much better. Tessa and Scott, in the "Up" group routine, playing the young and in love Carl and Ellie. (Not much of a stretch. Really.) Scott wearing glasses and Tessa's adorable dress and the adorable moment when she takes his hand and puts it on her belly and he does a heel click! Hee.
Later in the day, I was standing in line at a restaurant, grabbing dinner and idly checking Twitter. Word on the feed was that a video of Hallelujah was up. I grabbed my food and almost literally sprinted back to the hotel. It sat abandoned for a very long time. I have no words for Hallelujah. Gorgeous and moving and intimate doesn't even begin to describe it. The beginning is just...guh. Scott and Tessa, standing together, foreheads touching and slowly, he takes her hands in his and runs them down his face to his chest. They repeat that move several times in the program and I love the moments when his hands are on her shoulders as well. I've watched it an embarrassing number of times since.
At this point, I feel like I'm almost just waiting for some confirmation that they're together off the ice. I don't even know. There's just been too much weirdness going on lately. Is it May 16th yet?
