ADA Barba: Home, Again series

Series Listing | Warnings: Criminal Activity, Sexual Assault, Violence, Anxiety, Depression, Angst Angst Angst, Bad Dreams, Etc.

This whole thing started with this beautiful request from an anon:

Hi! I really hope you’re still taking requests! I’ve read your All Work & All Play series (I’m dying for the next part to come out!) In the mean time could you please write a Barba x reader where Rafael has a wife, (Y/N), who disappeared two years ago. Barba has tried numerous times to find her with the help of SVU, but the trails always come up cold. When the team busts Johnny D, they find (Y/N) among the girls there and finally Barab and (Y/N) get the reunion they’ve been waiting for.

I literally woke up two hours early the next morning because I couldn’t get this idea out of my head and I knew, knew, KNEW I had to write it. Immediately.

In response to a prompt received earlier: Hi! I really hope you’re still taking requests! I’ve read your All Work & All Play series (I’m dying for the next part to come out!) In the mean time could you please write a Barba x reader where Rafael has a wife, (Y/N), who disappeared two years ago. Barba has tried numerous times to find her with the help of SVU, but the trails always come up cold. When the team busts Johnny D, they find (Y/N) among the girls there and finally Barab and (Y/N) get the reunion they’ve been waiting for.

PS- warning: mention of sexual assault, kidnapping, sad stuff.


“To have, and to hold-”

Rafael smiled as the end of the pastor’s speech approached. Of course, the ceremony was lovely; spring air that wafted the floral scents from the gardens up through the trees and ruffled the eyelash lace on your dress, the family and dear friends gathered before you to witness the union of two like souls, how his heart beat so roughly against the inside of his ribs that he was convinced you may be able to see his boutonniere move in tune. He hoped it didn’t distract you. All he could ever hope was that nothing could distract you- from this moment, from these promises he was more than willing to make. The ceremony was lovely, but he wanted to hold you more than he wanted to talk any longer

You were fine, though. Nothing could convince you to pull your gaze from his green eyes. Not his trembling hands as he held onto yours, not the corners of his lips wriggling as he struggled to maintain his stoic composure, not the whistling of the birds or the soft hum of the harp. You had waited years to make this sincere; legal and honest. All you had ever wanted ever since you met your Darling Rafi was to become his wife- funny how you had never wanted something so desperately before.

“Until death do you part?”

He gripped your hands so tightly, you thought you couldn’t feel your fingers; “I do.”

You wished you could cup his face in your palms and disappear away to your honeymoon, this was taking far too long; “I do.”

Summary

“Transformational play and virtual worlds - worked examples from the quest atlantis project” - S. Barab et al.

Centraal:  
   >‘transformational play
                > “(…) how individuals and environments develop, push on, and change one another through meaningful inquiry.” (BSA, p.1)
   > QA intends to engage children in a form of ‘dramatic play
                > “(…) both online and offline learning activities, with a storyline inspiring a disposition towards social actions.” (ibid.)
   >> “(…) transformational play involves positioning students as active protagonists who interact with game characters and virtual environments to identify and solve personally meaningful problems.” (ibid.)

Features of QA:
   - meta-game context: “(…) a genre of play in which an overarching structure lends form, cohesion, and meaning to a collection of nested activities, each with its own identifiable rules and challenges. (Salen & Zimmerman, 2004)” (BSA, p.2)

Identification
   > “Through game play, as one develops a relationship with (or projects oneself into) a player-character, the individual is extended into another world–one that is virtual but that has real-world implications (Gadamer, 1975). By creating an opportunity for students to engage with curricular content in this way, the spaces of QA allow the student to test conjectures, act upon them, and witness the consequences of their actions, making visible the functional utility of one’s understanding (Barab, Zuiker, et al., 2007).” (BSA, p.5)

Practiced identity
   > “More than a simulation, QA is fun; like many games, it allows students to become someone and do things that they are unlikely to do in the “real world.” During play, students engage a space of possibility, negotiating rules and roles and discovering the challenges and potentialities for growth within and across the boundaries of fantasy and “reality”. Through play, they transcend the borders of reality; it is this potential that, in our opinion, gives play the power to expand the learner’s conceptual and personal zone of proximal development (Vygotsky, 1978).” (BSA, p.5)

Striving of QA-project:
   > to have schools “(…) focus more on engaging students and less on providing them the manual”. (BSA, p.5)
                > Stems from consideration “(…) that schools have traditionally privileged abstractions and generalizations over particulars to a point that is becoming problematic”. (BSA, p.5)
