I think sometimes people forget how vital comedy can be. It isn’t just good for a laugh, it can cure sadness, anxiety, depression, and in my case, save lives. Like over the summer, I was so violently depressed that I went for days without getting out of bed but then I started watching The Office. This sounds silly, but it gave me a reason to get up in the morning. It gave me motivation to get out of bed and go to my jobs. Beyond that, it taught me a lot about relationships and what healthy relationships were vs unhealthy, all while making me laugh. It literally lifted me out of one of the worst times of my life emotionally, and by the end of watching it, I didn’t feel so hopeless anymore. This has happened to me multiple times with different comedians, TV shows, and movies. Comedy has saved me time and time again just when I start feeling bleak about the world. Comedy is so, so important. It’s beautiful.

id honestly give so much to see a b99 episode of the squad going camping together one day. like, mayhem ensues, gems include:

  • rosa telling scary campfire stories and jake lowkey clinging onto amy for dear life
  • charles attempting to cook a gourmet bbq for the squad but something inevitably catches on fire
  • hitchcock and scully getting lost and jake and rosa attempting to search for them in the woods
  • gina building a Luxury Tent ™ and filming people for her blog 
  • terry relaxing in the corner playing kwazy cupcakes, oblivious to everything that is going on 
  • holt knowing a shocking amount of professional wilderness survival skills and prepares to chip in with lifesaving advice at the last minute, every time
  • however he surprisingly doesn’t account for amy bringing and memorising two binders’ worth of wilderness skills herself
  • holt and amy end up having a lowkey mentor mentee competition as to Who Knows What To Do Best in every situation that comes up. rosa ends up winning due to girl scout experience
  • bonus: 3 am and the entire squad rests peacefully around the campfire together after an Eventful day. jake is huddled close to amy for warmth, rosa is chatting with gina, charles is proudly serving everyone food (hitchcock and scully openly love it), holt is curiously watching terry’s kwazy cupcakes game. everyone can hear holt periodically saying things like “that was an error, i would swipe up instead of left.” 
  • the whole squad swap old stories and inside jokes, and all silently agree that this trip was a success.

Sorry, but imagine if the squad in Brooklyn 99 met the parks department in parks and rec
Like imagine Amy santiago meeting Leslie knope and discussing binders and stationary
Or rosa meeting april and talking about knives or whatever
Captain Holt and ron Swanson meeting and enjoying a comfortable silence
Boyle and Chris meeting and both being really enthusiastic about each other’s weird interests
Jake meeting andy and talking about cop movies and their awesome girlfriends
Like that’s just the tip of the iceberg

Y’all, we need to take a moment to appreciate the story of how Marc Evan Jackson (aka Kevin Cozner in B99, Trevor Nelsson in Parks and Rec, Sparks Nevada in the Thrilling Adventure Hour, etc) met his wife because it legitimately is a Real Life Vet AU and is the most adorable thing. ♥♥ OK, SO: 

  • His wife is a vet, and they first met because his cat was sick.
  • When she walked into the tiny patient room, they had a “two-way, star-in-the-eye, twinkle moment.” 
  • As she was listening to his cat’s heart during the physical exam, his actual thoughts were: I’M GOING TO KISS HER. Wait, no, I could go to jail today if I do that… She doesn’t need me in her life. I’m not going to do anything. 
  • He was planning to travel somewhere and needed a permit/certificate for his cat to fly with him, so he had to go back to the vet. 
  • At the second visit, she asked him out by saying she wanted a tour of downtown because she had been away from the area for several years. 
  • He wasn’t 100% sure if they were on a date, but he took her out to dinner, coffee, and dessert anyway.
  • He actually did bring her on a “total bullshit tour” – he had no idea where he was driving her to because he had been so busy with work and really barely knew the city. 
  • Right when he was lost in the middle of the nowhere, she started giving him directions… And then he realized that it was a date! She knew exactly where they were and didn’t need a tour at all!!! 

In conclusion, ADORABLE AU-TYPE MEET CUTES CAN HAPPEN IN REAL LIFE AS WELL.

Yoongi: “I didnt understand why people care so much about their dumb dogs until I got a dumb dog myself. I’ve only had Min Holly for a day and a half. But if anything happened to him, I would kill everyone in this room and then myself.”
