I was two episodes into Brooklyn Nine Nine when I hollered the words “THERE ARE TWO CHARACTERS WITH CURLY HAIR” into the empty house
This week’s been pretty rough, but the icing on the cake was when a girl in my bio lecture asked me how I stopped being ashamed of my curly hair. So I drew a pick me up?
Lucky for me, I’ve been proud of and in love with my curls for the past few years now, and I got there on my own, but sometimes it really helps to have someone who can express enough love for both of you until you get over the dumb, narrow concept of beauty that’s sold to young girls especially in a lot of their formative years.
(Also: I was thinking about how Rosa always wears her beautiful bushy hair down, and how she very likely wasn’t always as confident in it as she is at thirty-something, and how Andy Samberg rocked his ridiculous head of curls for so many years just For The Hell Of It and lowkey I respect that, and this emerged. Honestly, I’d be ready to watch a full show just about Jake and Rosa’s shenanigans at the Academy, but with the bonus of Jake rocking the Hot Rod ‘fro.

Todd manages to battle and conquer the entire Bat Family, except Dick Grayson as Nightwing, who successfully defeated him and relieved him of the Batman mantle.
