Sweet/Vicious is one of the best shows I have ever seen! Jules and Ophelia are the strong, independent, intelligent, capable, badass, feminist female characters that I’m constantly looking for on television shows and movies.
I am in love with the way the show addressed sexual assault and its ramifications; I’m inspired by Jules’s and all the other victims’ courage; I am exhilarated to see two young women kicking ass and taking no bullshit - something that I long for in today’s entertainment; I’m blown away by the manner in which the show incorporated racial injustice, slut-shaming and the importance of female friendships, all in 10 episodes as well as kept it light-hearted, hilarious and most of all, real. I feel empowered, aware and courageous. That’s what watching this show did - it made me ( a 16 year old girl ) feel like I can conquer anything - and that’s what makes it so important to the world right now!
Every single person who has and will watch this will fall in love. It portrays sexual assault in a way that the world has never seen before and the world needs to see this amazing work of educating art!
Honestly, I don’t know how to describe what I feel for this show - words fail me. But if there’s one thing I know for sure, it’s that the world NEEDS more Sweet/Vicious!!
If you haven’t watched Sweet/Vicious, I am urging you, begging you to please please go watch it ASAP! Like right now! It is mind-blowing! And please sign this petition because this show has to go on!
Sweet/Vicious creator Jennifer Kaytin Robinson said that if the show is renewed, she would love to address more stories - “We think male survivors are important. We think race issues are important. We want to talk about bullying.“
How can we let such a fantastic, awe-inspiring show die?! How?!

Hey, I really like your fic recs and wanted to let you know I appreciate them , also could you recommend me some super long fics , I'm kinda new so I don't mind the #classics Thank you and 😘😘
Thank youuuu! So nice! Let me present to you, the 10 longest Drarry fics I’ve read* (*that I love enough to want to rec to you & everyone else):
• Secrets by Vorabiza (411k) Beginning with Draco’s unexpected arrival at the Dursleys, Harry’s summer after sixth year becomes filled with activity and many secrets. As his summer progresses, Harry generates several unexpected allies as he finds himself actively becoming the leader of the Light side.
(I have about ten thousand favorite scenes in this fic, it is SO much fun, I love the characters, BAMF!Harry, the sweet Drarry, the details of the plot etc.)
• Cunning and Ambition by MinaAndChao (371k)
Harry Potter has found out he’s a wizard and is on his way Hogwarts. He is found by a boy on the train. Who knew one simple sentence and one simple gesture could change history? A Slytherin!Harry AU. (Tear my heart out, why don’t you? This fic kills me, it’s the canon rewrite I always wanted. Much darker, more emotional. I’ve read it many times.)
• Foundations!verse by Sara’s Girl (a total of 364k) Harry is about to discover that the steepest learning curve comes after Healer training, and that second chances can be found in unexpected places.
(This entire ‘verse is SO wonderful, you are going to fall so hard for this Harry and Draco. A+ characterizations, such sweet domestic fluff, EVERYTHING!)
• Turn, by Sara’s Girl (306k) One good turn always deserves another. Apparently. (I have too many words about how much I adore this fic, see my dissertation on the topic here. Beautiful story, amazing characters, excellent writing.)
• Malfoy Flavorby Vorabiza (222k)
Harry’s ready to banish the Golden Boy image and take charge of his life. Unfortunately for him, or fortunately, there are surprises in store for him.
(Fic aesthetic by me. I always have such fun with this one, I’ve read it multiple times. Very pro-Slytherin, secret identities, badass!Harry, sweetness…)
• Big Dick, Come Quick by Calanthe (204k) Draco’s got a theory. About sex. After much searching for the right candidate, it appears that only Harry Potter, his life long enemy, can help him test it out. (This one is amazingly hot, amazingly fluffy, and sooo sweet. Might not be ideal to read in public, but I think it’s well worth a read or five. Lovely Drarry.)
• Draco’s Boyby empathic siren (186k) A mysterious little boy named Harry moves in next door to Draco Malfoy, and he’s determined to make him his friend and learn all of his secrets. Years later, he’s determined to make Harry more than a friend. (I feel like this fic shortened my life with at least ten years, THAT’S HOW MUCH I CRIED. Sweet baby!Harry deserved better. Perfect for you angst-lovers.)
• Temptation on the Warfront by alizarincrims0n (180k)
Draco Malfoy is forced into hiding with the Golden Trio and dragged into their search for horcruxes. What ensues is a journey of redemption, unexpected friendships and an unwanted, turbulent romance with Harry Potter.
(Omggg this fic. Harry and Draco have such passion in this, there’s so much desperation, and the angst, oh it hurts. Another favorite of mine.)
• All Our Secrets Laid Bare by firethesound (149k) Over the six years Draco Malfoy has been an Auror, four of his partners have turned up dead. Harry Potter is assigned as his newest partner to investigate just what is going on. (Love. This. Fic. I have so many headcanons thanks to this one. Great writing, and wonderful pining, also humor, badass magic, Death Eather safe houses…)
• Consequences of Redemption by bobbirose (120k)
When Draco makes an impromptu decision to rescue Harry Potter from Malfoy Manor, the two find themselves alone and facing the looming climax of the war against Voldemort. Harry must start from the beginning with Draco–and starting over has more consequences than either of them anticipated.
(This one is all fluffy fun and sweetness, I mean they’re ADORABLE… until it casually decides to ruin your life. It’s not like I needed a heart anyway.)
I see a lot of posts saying Molly Hooper deserved better, poor Molly or Molly is such a weak character. Really, are they all watching the same show. So here I am trying my best to negate them.
I think she is the strongest and the most badass character on the show. You don’t need to be a consulting detective,
an ex-army man, an ex- super agent, the British Government, a DI, the widow of
a drug dealer or a dominatrix to be considered badass. Look at our sweet pathologist Molly, she dated
and dumped Jim Moriarty (the Consulting Criminal) and she was so freaking casual about it.
wasn’t scared or worried even after knowing who Jim really is, and can we
please talk about how she casually calls him “Jim” , whereas every
other character addresses him by his full name or Moriarty as they are all a
bit scared of him.
still a bit unclear as to why Jim let her walk away unscathed even after
“she ended it” (my Molliarty shipper heart has its own reasons
though). Anyway this is just one of the instances to show that Molly is neither
a weak nor a timid character.
coming to the ILY scene, a lot of
wonderful meta is already written about it but I would like to add my two cents
to it. Firstly, I think Jim Moriarty
the one who told Eurus about Molly because the Jim we all know ( come on he’s a genius) would take into
consideration the various possibilities regarding The Fall. He would have
considered the possibility of Sherlock
going to Molly for help, as he knows Molly loves Sherlock and would help him regardless of what people
say. I think Jim always planned for
Molly to be a part of The final Problem. Anyway coming back to the ILY scene, I
don’t know if this was deliberately done by the writers or not but there is an
important thing we tend to miss. John
“ I see but I don’t observe”
Watson thinks the coffin is for Adler
and Mycroft “ I’m the smart one” Holmes thinks the coffin is for somebody who loves
Sherlock, both of them are wrong because the person who is in the coffin
doesn’t write their own epitaph or the engraving “I Love you”. It’s
the person who buries them, in this case it’s Sherlock who has to bury Molly if
she dies, who writes the epitaph. So the whole point of the scene is to get
Sherlock to admit his feelings and say the words to Molly. He most definitely
means it when he says it the second time because that is the look of
realization of a man who has fallen in love for the first time.
Molly deserves to have her love and feelings
returned by the man she’s always loved and that is exactly what happened in
TFP. Even Loo Brealey in a recent
interview said “ After playing Molly for seven years it was great to do
her justice and give her a good send-off if it is the end…” I think this
means Molly got her happy ending and we all know what her happy ending is and
more importantly with whom. So I don’t
understand from where this ‘Molly deserves better’ posts are coming from.
My point being Molly got her happy ending and there is no need to take pity on her or call her weak. Thank you very much
Finished ACOWAR and the only real thought I have right now is that Azriel, the infamous spymaster, the badass shadowsinger, my sweet lil’ bby bat, better find the love and happiness he deserves in one of the spinoffs because Azriel ‘Be careful how you speak about my High Lady’ is the real fucking mvp of Prythian
-So Jules is a teacher and Ophelia is a cop.
-O actually has normal colored hair (forced by her job)
-they are hella over protective parents
-their kids are kinda really sheltered
-And juphelia is the perfect parents who “never do anything wrong”
-so their kids dont really know that they are kind of badasses (except O bc shes a cop, but they always thought that O was like a good child and crap)
-so as their kids get older they begin to tell them about their younger selves
-and the kids are just kind of like wtf
-they show them pictures from college (“mom are you wearing a weed shirt?” “No…” “that is definetly weed” “how do you even know what that is” “mom im fifteen, please” “dont you ever do weed! It is a gate way drug and itll kill you” “there is literally a picture of you smoking a joint, you cant say anything” “shut up! Dont smoke weed”)
-they find out about the vigilante thing and o being a weed dealer and their like wtf our parents werent always lame
-and then thy beg jules to teach them how to fight (at first she says no, but then shes like “rats, you do need to know how to defend yourselves”)
-so their children become badasses as well and thy want to carry out their parents legacy (which o and jules flip the fuck out about and lecture their kids about not doing for three weeks)
-the kids dont listen and become vigilantes, and O ends up arresting them for vigilante work and gets so pissed bc she lectured them on this
-so the kids get grounded, Ophelia yells at them and Jules gives them the silent treatment (bc it makes them feel worse when shes just silent, with a dissappointed/angry look on their face)
-they try to go out again but jules follows them, and they almost get hurt by the guy their going after and Jules ends up saving their ass and beating the shit out of the guy
- jules takes them home and is silent the whole way and the kids are like holy shit that was awesome but crap she pissed
-and when they get home she just goes to her bedroom and leaves them to O. O looks at them and shakes her head then follows Jules.
-the kids apologise and that stops their vigilante adventures (for now at least)
All you really need to know about Mickey Milkovich is that one time, Kev robbed him at gunpoint, and all it took for Mickey to forget about it was Kev making Mickey’s plate for him at Yevgeny’s christening party.
