Some superfans compile threads of feel-good GIFs and quotes from family, coaches, and friends about Virtue and Moir’s relationship.
Others write fan fiction about the lingering rumors of an unconfirmed romance.
The most notable part of this series to VM shippers is that, throughout the competition season, Moir never introduces his girlfriend, Cassandra, to Virtue.
They’re serious enough to exchange “I love yous” over Skype, and for her to fly to Paris to watch him compete, yet she appears purposefully shielded from his close skating partner.
is a helpful source for discerning other nebulous forces at play.
Like any good reality TV show, it’s edited to accentuate the mystery of their partnership, which Moir’s parents compare to a marriage at one point.

Think it might have been to hide something, like abdominal muscles that were starting to stretch and separate a bit as her uterus rose out of her pelvis? Practically every televised interview featuring the two was picked apart by fans in search of hidden meanings. Hell, they could wank it and say we have no ‘SECRET’ baby as the baby is not a secret to anyone who can work their six degrees of separation down to a reliable source.
Of course, that hasn’t stopped fans from posting conspiracy theory art like this: I’m going to make the call now: There is no Moir toddler. To understand their romantic potential, it’s helpful to know that they first began skating together as kids.
But given that the pair’s public appearances continue to fuel a Jim-and-Pam level of inquiry, it’s only natural to ask: Will they? As slick an ice dancing couple as they are now, Moir and Virtue haven’t always been dazzling.
After Virtue and Moir were asked about her injury on a Canadian radio show a year later, a fan who runs the Blogspot Dubemoir posited that the conversation was really about this secret pregnancy, and created a frame-by-frame analysis of Moir’s expressions to suggest he was lying. In another post from 2013, the same author doubles down on the theory: “Can’t they say the words—not ‘we’re not dating’ but ‘We’re not married’ and, more to the point ‘We’re not parents,’” the post reads. That would be just semantics.” (The name Dubemoir, by the way, comes from an old rumor that Moir was dating fellow Canadian skater Jessica Dubé.
This is one of several intra-ice skating affairs VM fans have invented over the years. ) As far as conspiracy theories go, this one is extremely weak.
