Despite all the incredible previews, I’ll admit I was a little wary going into Moo Moo, only because racial profiling is a really heavy topic to cover in ~22 minutes, especially in a comedy. I spent a lot of time thinking about how the conflict between Terry and Holt might play out. My fear was either the episode would slip into “after school special” territory and ultimately present a superficial, overly simplistic depiction of the issue, or veer all the off to the other end and give us a dark, bleak ending devoid of that hope and optimism that makes B99 so special. Nothing against B99 – I’ve just been burned by many a show before, and this is a topic that could be an absolute disaster in the wrong hands.
But then there’s this? A show that is thoughtful and nuanced while showing us the horrors of racial profiling and the complexities of reporting it, that doesn’t shy away from the fact that we still have a lot of work to do but also allows Terry and Holt to have their own personal victory? That covered a super serious subject, including a conversation where two beautiful young black girls asked questions they should never have to ask, but still allowed for moments of joy and laughter that felt genuine? And that did it all in about twenty minutes, wrapping up on a beautifully bittersweet note that was just the right tone for an episode of this level of importance?
I’m just in awe. And I feel really, really lucky that we have so many incredible people involved with this show who share it with us.

It wasn’t exactly obvious, at first.
Veronica had always been the more affectionate of the two, for obvious reasons. She was the one who grabbed JD’s hand in public, she was the one who kissed his cheek when he did something she found adorable (which happened all the time- JD could have sworn he had a permanent lip gloss stain on both cheeks, not that he was complaining), she was the one who bought him cookies and flowers and coffee when he was sad or tired or hungry.
JD showed his affection for Veronica in other ways. When she shivered, he wrapped her in his trench coat. He was the one who stood behind her and glared at anyone who tried to hurt her in any way. He was the protector.
And he was so used to the way Veronica mixed endearments into her speech, always calling him ‘honey’ or ‘darling’ or ‘sweetie’ (terms which he would never admit gave him butterflies, just a little), that it took him a while to catch on.
When they were at school, she would say it when they met and again when they parted. When they were on a date, she would say it through laughter or in a lighthearted way. When he was sad or angry or afraid, she would say it gently as he put his head in her lap and she ran her fingers through his mess of curls. It was second nature.
It dawned on him as he was in her kitchen one day, listening to her sing as they washed the dishes from the meal they’d made together.
“Your voice is amazing, Veronica,” he said to her after she finished her song, and she giggled, splashing him with water.
“Thanks, sweetie,” she laughed. “I love you.”
He paused for a moment, then turned to her with a slight frown. Her eyebrows raised.
“Are you okay?” she asked.
“You say that all the time, you know,” he mused, and her face relaxed into a smile.
“Well, you always love hearing it,” she said with a shrug, and JD felt his face heat up just slightly as a faint blush dusted his cheeks.
“And I always love saying it,” Veronica added.
JD didn’t reply, just walked across the room and tossed her a hand towel. She caught it, automatically drying her hands, as her face creased in confusion.
“What’s this for?” she asked, setting it aside as JD dried his own hands with another towel, setting it on top of hers.
“I’m going to kiss you,” he said seriously, taking a step towards her as her face flushed adorably. “I’m going to kiss you, and it’s going to be amazing, because you love me, and I love you too.”
Veronica’s hands flew to her mouth, and she pretended to be shocked.
“Why, Jason Dean, you’ve never said that to me before,” she said, and her tone was only slightly joking.
“Well, expect a lot more of it from me,” he replied, standing in front of her.
“Because I love you,” he said.
His arms wrapped around her waist, pulling her close.
“And I love saying it,” he continued.
Her hands rested on his chest as their faces drew closer together.
“And I’m always going to love hearing it,” she whispered.
Their lips met, and he kissed her until her head spun and her world dissolved and she forgot everything but one eternal truth.
WOO THIS BLOG JUST REACHED 180+ ( almost 200 aaa )
But um yes! I wanted to make an art raffle since I’ve never done one before and I think it might be fun so I think some of these are pretty self explanatory and all the I guess ‘rules’ apply here as well!
- You must be following me, it doesn’t matter if you unfollow me but it’ll be nice if you stuck around
- Reblogs and likes count!
I WILL DRAW:
I’ll draw any character! Even OC’s but refs will be needed if you’d like me to.
I’ll try to draw furries but my experience with drawing animals are kinda rusty but I’m more than willing to try!
Light gore is fine like blood, exposed bones and such
Any ship is fine with me just as long as it’s not pedophilia or abusive type ( I live for fluffy and cuddly relationships )
I WILL NOT DRAW:
I won’t draw nsfw but if they’re in like their undies or something that’s fine just no explicit nudity.
Like it says about no pedophilia etc.
No fetish art.
If you have any other questions on what I will and will not draw you may ask away! The raffle will end on June 12th!
“Slow” marine animals show their secret life under high magnification. Corals and sponges are very mobile creatures, but their motion is only detectable at different time scales compared to ours and requires time lapses to be seen. These animals build coral reefs and play crucial roles in the biosphere, yet we know almost nothing about their daily lives.
doodles of harutaka fankids that i literally just improvised because i was bored!!!???
(fankids that should be canon by now bc as dead as it is the fandom already agreed that they have a boy and a girl that are literal rip-offs of konoha’s and ene’s personalities so jin what the hell are you waiting for????)
I love Wintergatan and Martin is the most brilliant person I’ve ever seen. I’ve been a fan for about a year now and only now do I draw some fanart, GG self lol. I was gonna draw the Marble Machine but… Christ, have you seen that thing?? It’d take me a month to draw it :’3 So instead here’s Martin with the music box, which wasn’t easy to draw (even when I simplified it a little) but it was easier than the Marble Machine at least.
Go check out Wintergatan if you haven’t yet!! (x) (x) (x)
