The Hours After The Night Before  
Well! This happened.

Objectively? That finale was duller than some and I kind of expected everything to be... more, but I think that's because the semi-finals were so freaking over the top. However, I don't really care about that because I am on Team Hines & Kym's Future Babies, and I'm pretty sure that's still on, so. Dances!

Their Quickstep! Len felt up Hines more than Kym did, but the routine is freaking precious and Hines says they'll reprise the dance and he's taking Kym clubbing later. Aww. Brooke really wants them to confess their love on the air and/or she's just completely confused by all the cute and really wants this cleared up. I think that if Brooke has figured out the futuristic space magic of cell phones, she's going to be texting Kym nonstop over the hiatus until Kym admits they're doing it.

Their freestyle! First of all, I found this super-cute recap article from eonline where Hines & Kym talk about their freestyle plans:

"It was her vision. She had this vision week five! I took her to a Hawks game and she saw these drummers," Hines began before his partner adorably interrupts his thought. "It was at a basketball game! I thought they would be amazing as a freestyle," she finishes gleefully.

Their Not Dating is so adorable I can't even cope.

Speaking of, in the rehearsal footage for this when they start talking about visualizing the championship and she gives him this cute smile I decided that they are so totally planning to have a lot of sex after the finale.

SO CUTE! And they totally kiss at the end possibly by accident but it's TOO CUTE. And omg, Brooke asks them how they will handle saying goodbye and they both pause for a split second and Hines says they have a lifelong friendship and Kym is grinning and they SO TOTALLY have talked about this. They have a sex pact, y'all. Which may, in fact, be why Hines told Entertainment Weekly that he's already won.

While we're waiting for post-show interviews to show up, some rehearsal footage from earlier! She's like "I don't have to wear a neck brace!" and Hines is like "You're totally putting that back on." And she totally loves it. I love him mother-henning her, and her mom's in town and you know she loves that too and is like KYM. KYM. I LIKE HIM. (He's not wearing his blingtacular earrings and I legitimately had a split-second fantasy that he was actually going to give one to her like she jokingly asked in that one Dancers Confessional. I mean, I get that Kym probably wants a mirrorball at this point more than diamonds, but you can get her both.)

Also, Good Morning America video behind the scenes of the final camera blocking. Hines says he's going to dance with Kym at the club later to her surprise, and she looks adorable as she tries to play it cool but admits that she's a little spooked about tricks after the accident.

YAYYYYYY post-show footage!!!

Kym: "I feel so safe in his arms." I realize this is totally relevant to the death-defying dance they just performed but I'm just going to lift that quote out of context and squeee for days. (Also? That she can say that after her near-death experience and appear to 100% mean it while little hearts go spinning around her head? She is so in love.)

Access Hollywood is HOLDING OUT on us. They posted Chelsea and Kirstie's videos like HOURS AGO, and I have sleeping to do! So I will add that tomorrow and link you for now to this adorable video that I somehow completely missed from after their Viennese Waltz night where Kym says her favorite thing about the show is spending every day with Hines. There is not enough squeee in the world. They have this totally adorable combination of being responsible grown-ups doing their jobs and being adorable and crushing on each other. <3 <3 <3

ETA!: We don't get Access Hollywood Batshipper Reporter this week (I really need to send her a fruit basket or something). Her fill in, Reverse Psychology Reporter, pressures them to admit that this is their Last Dance and to squash the rumors that something is going on outside the show. Kym and Hines dutifully call each other friends while hugging all over each other and then Kym promises to visit Pittsburgh and finally Hines can't take saying over and over that he's not going to be getting any and says that they'll be dancing together at the club all the time. I think that's what we're calling it nowadays. Any bets? How long do we give this before it's legit dating? I'm still putting the over-under on forty-five minutes.

Also, wetpaint.com shares my feelings that the real prize this season is Hines and Kym getting to dance together at the club all the time when all this is over. One of their reporterettes made a video summing up that they really should be dating. No new footage, but they do mention that Hines is divorced and Kym hasn't mentioned a boyfriend in a long while and that Cheryl apparently says that you inevitably end up sleeping with your DWTS partner which I'm sure is great news for all the wives of the dudes she's paired with (interesting side note on Hines' ex-wife - I saw on the internet that she turned down Real Housewives of Atlanta). I'm not linking it to you because they throw in a fast clip of Kym's neck getting crunched and I almost got whiplash trying to cover my face in time and I just need to spare you from that. YOU'RE WELCOME.

ETA: I'm just going to keep dumping links in here because no1curr, but Kym chatted with someone from Esquire who seemed oddly annoyed to get this assignment given how hot she is. Girlfriend knows her audience, because her pitch to watch the show is Where else can you see pretty girls dancing around in close to nothing? Oh, Kym. She's still pretending there's no sex pact, though:

Esquire:What's with all the chemistry between ballroom dancers and jocks?

KJ: Spending that much time with someone can do that for you. With Hines, I've got a friendship now for life. Everyone I've danced with I'm still really good friends with. I mean, you do spend eight hours a day together, for a good thirteen weeks. It's a lot of time with two people working toward one common goal. It does make you bond.

But I'll still call it squeee-positive because:

ESQ: ... what kind of partner might you be hoping for next season?

KJ: I've just had the best time with Hines. He's such an amazing person and the best partner. I can't even wrap my head around it right now.

Well, should she decide this season can't be topped, I think Maks and Tony would probably open a studio for her in Pittsburgh. ;)

ETA: There is ALWAYS MORE. All of the finalists are totally on life support right now - Maks has food poisoning, Mark had a fever, Kym "feels like a football player" because of all the treatments she's requiring. Hines holds her hand when she gets shots. I couldn't make this up.

Linkdrop: Kym's last blog of the season for OK! in which she still refuses to say Hines is the best of all her partners (I really thought he'd badger her into admitting that before the season was out), says they will DEFINITELY be keeping in touch but not specifically in a sex pact way, and whatever, she's going to be on the East Coast for the hiatus so I will infer what I want. (She will be there engaging in my personal worst nightmare - being a celebrity spokesperson on the home shopping network - but at least that explains why she's been so fixated on wearing fake bangs all season long.)

God, I miss that high school fluttery, tingly hearts and butterflies feeling that comes at the beginning of a relationship.

Have not seen the vids, but cannot wait to get home to do so. Not sure if I'll be able to stay up again tonight to live comment on the live blog, since I am old and need sleep, but... who knows. I may even try to live watch again, haha. Although this is definitely nail biting time... especially if Chelsea gets another freebie 15 points, lol.

Timezones are so evil like that!! Thanks for keeping me company and enabling last night. :)

Eeeeee hearts and butterflies and puppies and rainbows and seriously, these two personify that in such a ridiculous way. And since they clearly agreed to Not Date, they can just be stupidly cute in this high school way without skipping right to the hot sex. The heart and butterfly time is important! ;) WHERE ARE HER DIAMONDS, HINES.

Oh, Chelsea. She knows she doesn't have a chance, I think, but she was so gracious about it yesterday that I really warmed up to her. She's adorable and 22 and it's kind of cute that her pitch in her interviews has been "I've never won a trophy for anything before!" and "I can't believe I even get to hang out with these people!" and just, THANK GOD she hasn't been spouting off about how she Deserves It The Most or something like poor Bristol last season.

I like that in basically every interview Hines talks about how he's taking Kym dancing at the club. I think that's code for the sex pact.
Little Red: dwts - hines/kymmylittleredgirl on May 24th, 2011 06:53 pm (UTC)
Quick video addition for lols. Hines & Kym are only in the first bit, and they mime Jennifer and Derek winning the mirrorball. Ahahaha. Here!
Pooh: hot assmspooh on May 25th, 2011 01:09 am (UTC)
Awwww. The man has a Mickey tattoo! Maybe he was being completely serious about making love to her at Disneyland!
Little Redmylittleredgirl on May 25th, 2011 01:25 am (UTC)
I think it might be Mighty Mouse? I can't really tell? EITHER WAY: AHAHAHA, he totally got that drunk one night when his buddies dared him but it's really quite bizarrely suitable.

TAKE HER TO DISNEYLAND. She can distract you from trying to take her on the roller coasters with sex. *nods*
Pooh: SGA - Sparky kiss (by goldie_gal)mspooh on May 25th, 2011 01:38 am (UTC)
It looked like Mickey Mouse, but yeah, either way, there's gotta be a great story behind it.

For a woman who loves adding height-defying (though at slightly lower heights after her accident) tricks to her dance routines, he's amused to discover that she's surprisingly scared of roller coasters.
Little Red: established factmylittleredgirl on May 25th, 2011 01:42 am (UTC)
She totally is! They had an adorable interview that I spammed at some point or other where the interviewer asked about the most daring thing they do and she's like "I'm scared of roller coasters and would never skydive and I need to be more daring" and he's laughing behind her and then she tells the interviewer that he's scared of the ocean, so clearly, this conversation had already taken place. I have bad news for Kym, because he's probably going to try and drag her on a rollercoaster on their future Disneyland vacation and she's so full of hearts and flowers that she'll agree. I advise her to play the neck injury card, and when he gapes at her about how she let him throw her in the air after that she'll just point smugly to the sign next to the ride that talks about neck and back injuries and say she'll gladly watch from the ground as long as he buys her cotton candy afterwards.
Little Red: dwts - hines/kymmylittleredgirl on May 25th, 2011 06:11 pm (UTC)
DUDE. It's totally Mickey Mouse! I was rewatching interviews because I am that crazy and you're right and they do even say it and HAHAHA, he's totally going to have Mickey Mouse rub her back when they sex at disneyland. ;)

The post-interviews are amazing. One guy is like "You look so good together! Are you guys gonna go on vacation and figure this out!?" And they're like, we're good friends, he has to go have surgery next week, but they have plans to visit each other. It is so totally on.
Pooh: FNL - mr/mrs coach dancing (by carrielh)mspooh on May 25th, 2011 01:15 am (UTC)
Okay, watching the results show. From the camera angle at the end of freestyle: There was totally a quick kiss ON THE LIPS.
Little Red: dwts - hines/kymmylittleredgirl on May 25th, 2011 01:21 am (UTC)



I found a fanvid for Hines/Kym. SO MUCH CUTE. SO MUCH.
Pooh: DWTS - Jenerek (by scoreonemore4me)mspooh on May 25th, 2011 01:23 am (UTC)
I am watching LIIIIIIIIVE!

Omfg. A fanvid? There ARE people crazier than us! LOL
Little Red: dwts - hines/kymmylittleredgirl on May 25th, 2011 01:29 am (UTC)
Well really it's a "VOTE HINES & KYM!" fanvid not a "THEY REALLY NEED TO DO SEX!" fanvid so we're still crazier, but there's a montage of grins and some incredibly obnoxious faux lens flare action and whatever, I laughed really hard. EEEEEEE. She'd better get a real kiss, some diamonds, and a mirrorball, dammit!

Here's the vid for lolling during some LIIIIIIIVE commercials!
Pooh: PD - monkey love (foolishnpunkish)mspooh on May 25th, 2011 02:02 am (UTC)
Oh man. I lolled. But damn, that video was just made of SO MUCH CUTENESS. I feel like I'm on a sugar high right now. HEE.
Little Red: dwts - hines/kymmylittleredgirl on May 25th, 2011 02:05 am (UTC)
OMG I KNOW! I have been on a high for WEEKS now. I am going to crash SO HARD, haha. Especially since layoff news hits Thursday. I guess I will just have to write fic when the insanely cute videos stop rolling in! (Because if the world didn't need two Hines/Kym fics already, it certainly won't mind more.)

Pooh: Psych - pout (by tinamishi)mspooh on May 25th, 2011 02:22 am (UTC)
Hahaha, my boy called and I ignored him. He emailed wondering where I forgot my phone. Had to explain to him that I have MORE IMPORTANT things to do now. Like watch the results show LIIIIIIVE! And how I need all my mental focus right now to make Hines/Kym win and then force them together and have lots and lots of sex. All through the POWER OF MY MIND. Erm, I'm pretty sure he's going to mock like crazy later.

I actually had a quick idea for a short fic, but I have NO TIME OMFG to sit down and work it through, especially since it will be my FIRST attempt at writing in FOREVER, WTF. But now I fear by the time I get to it, it will be ridiculously old news. *sigh*
Little Red: dwts - hines/kymmylittleredgirl on May 25th, 2011 02:28 am (UTC)

Oh my god. OH MY GOD. I just saw... I DON'T KNOW WHAT I JUST SAW. Possibly the best/worst vid ever. It is so bad. Do not watch it. It's endless slow-motion clips of Hines and Kym intercut with ridiculous text like "THEY LIVE TO MAKE YOU HAPPY THROUGH DANCE" and I just... I CANNOT STOP LAUGHING and I watched through my fingers and now I'm like OH GOD, TO AN OUTSIDER THESE ARE MY PEOPLE. Just... I can't... I hurt from laughing right now. THESE PEOPLE WOULD APPRECIATE MY FANFICCCC. *dies*

I cannot EVEN EXPRESS. It's like this is the bad youtube embodyment of my mental state the last three weeks and it is just SO BAD. I WISH YOU WERE HERE WITH ME FOR THIS MOMENT.

You rock for making PRIORITIES GIRL.

Little Red: dwts - hines/kymmylittleredgirl on May 25th, 2011 02:36 am (UTC)
Okay, you can watch this one and just squeee without wishing for death. The DWTS rock block really needs to start on the west coast because I NEED A DRINK.
Little Redmylittleredgirl on May 25th, 2011 02:15 am (UTC)

OH LORD. I have entered into the link-jumping nexus of people taking DWTS dances and montaging them to other songs and THIS IS SO BAD, but I'm kind of desperate here for fandom SO I AM TAKING IT WITH GLEEE.
Pooh: SG1 - eh? (by lowdownbeat)mspooh on May 25th, 2011 02:24 am (UTC)
Chelsea and Mark just did their last dance. I am oddly unmoved by the clip of their last rehearsals. Does this make me a cold-hearted bitch? Or am I just so ridiculously biased toward Hines/Kym that everything else on this show is just boring filler until they get to our lovahs?

Little Red: dwts - hines/kymmylittleredgirl on May 25th, 2011 02:31 am (UTC)


Pooh: SN - time out (by artsy-hobbit)mspooh on May 25th, 2011 03:03 am (UTC)

I completely missed the Hines/Kym part of the show! WTF! I completely blame the boy. I got to see it, but I didn't get to HEAR it. So you will actually see it before me, since this means now I need to wait for the online clips.
