    Actually, there are not that many trolls - just a few of them. Although lately I haven't noticed anyone who could be called a troll - except pani, that is. But, of course, the negative stuff is noticed more and tends to stay in memory for longer. That's why I also vote for changing the thread title. BTW, trolls couldn't make me stop liking Meryl and Charlie. Only bad dances (quite impossible) that I woldn't like (slightly more possible) could do that (that is, make me stop liking them as ice dancers).

    Much like the current D/W thread title, it's related to V/M's free dance.

    Thanks. Guess they are just showing their support for Carmen. Makes sense.

    So, Meryl Davis just tweeted:
    Quand les années auront passé
    On retrouvera sous terre
    Nos squelettes enlacés
    Pour dire à l'univers
    Combien Quasimodo aimait
    Esméralda
    Sent Sep 11, 09:30 PM


    ETA: Perhaps something from the above could be incorporated into a new thread title?

    Meryl's ability to be cryptic in the classiest of ways is an astounding talent. Even if we're usually onto her shenanigans.

    And of course Meryl would drop her hints en français.

    Anissina/Peizerat have a beautiful exhibition to Danse Mon Esmeralda: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LQO-od6NcYI.

    They are the only high-level ice dancers I know of that have used Notre Dame de Paris.

    Maybe his curls are being taken away
    I'm going to twizzle into a triple axel and spiral out of it.

    I seriously doubt that! Gwendal still looked fabulous as Quasimodo.

    i dont know if d/w will do the more tragic angle for this dance, and if they do, i would be a little concerned of charlie's level/range of expression. meryl can certainly do highly dramatic expressions, but i dont feel charlie has that range.

    SO excited for this. It'll be nice to see them go back to a more dramatic-type program after all the strides they've made in presentation the past few years.

    He is maturing and gaining more life experience...I wouldn't count him out on pushing up his level of expression. I actually thought he was quite expressive in POTO and I liked his expression in the Tango FD as well.
