So if this hasn’t been done a million and one times…. So I love the idea of having to take care of Barba when he’s sick, because I feel like he’s really stubborn and would hate that a little cold could take him down like this. He stands up to rapists, murderers, and gangsters, but a little cold and he cannot function. This is me though since I tend to get sick before/after midterms/finals or when I’m super stressed and I am also a workaholic like Barba soooo.
Imagine having to take care of Barba when he’s sick.
Inspired by infamous 1940′s Mob Boss and father of Las Vegas, Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel. He built The Flamingo hotel and casino; which he named in reference to his nickname for long time mistress/girlfriend/fiancee Virginia Hill.
While he ultimately went down in history under the nickname “Bugsy”, no one dared to call him that to his face when he was alive. At the time, it was a popular euphemism for “Crazy” (”crazy like a bedbug” was the old saying it came from); which he took as an insult of the utmost disrespect.
Another nickname he got was “Baby Blue Eyes” for his striking blue eyes and movie-star good looks. The murderous gangster was actually known to wear face creams, and take immense pride in his good looks. He had many friends in the movie industry, and was offered an audition, but believe it or not, his nerves got the better of him. He did, however, give more than a little bit of advice to his friend, movie star George Raft, on his portrayal of gangsters in movies.
As a side note, Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel and his iconic checkered suit became the inspiration behind “Benny Gecko” from Fallout New Vegas, a personal favorite game of mine.
