So… I made a thing! Because Robin and Regina are AWESOME and because @revolutionsoftheheart wrote a thing years ago that gave me insanely many feels!
Let me know what you think! And do not ask who’s the beauty and who the beast… When it comes to Robin and Regina… they were always both. And they loved each other as a whole, the good and the bad. And that’s why we all fell in love with them too. ♥
I've never been hit on POLITELY at a bus stop....until now
Ok so he came up to me and said that he really likes my hair, after I said thank you, the man asked if I liked any of the restaurants around downtown, and asked if he could take me sometime. I politely said no, so he asked if I’d like to exchange numbers to get to know each other first, I said no thank you, and he backed off immediately. He didn’t mention my butt or my tiddys he was literally the sweetest guy in the world. I just thought you should know.
Do you think they are having Carisi yell at Barba so much so that we'll KNOW we're not going to get Barisi ? Like , they've been teasing us with Barisi , but now we're definitely not getting it .
lol I don’t think either of those things is true.
(warning: keeping it real, and referring to canon, platonic Barisi)
Season 17 Barisi
I don’t think the writers ever actively teased us with canon romantic Barisi. They just saw the potential between two “opposites”, two very different characters with one major thing in common (the law), and they let that dynamic unfold. The initial banter, the jokes, the grudging respect, the eventual support and camaraderie. On paper, it made perfect sense, and Raul and Peter brought it to life beautifully.
About the [Barba/Carisi] relationship, Esparza admits, “I don’t think [Barba’s] a
very good mentor, but I loved the way the Carisi/Barba stuff played out.
I didn’t respect him at first and then little by little I began to
Esparza and Scanavino are both happy with the evolution of this
relationship, says Esparza. “They started really writing for us and I
remember we had a moment were we looked at each other we were like, ‘oh
they’re giving us some really good stuff!’
So, to me, Season 17′s Barisi goodness was just clever writing. Making good use of two of the show’s best characters, letting two wonderful actors have fun, and exploring the Barba/Carisi dynamic in a humorous but also poignant way which enriched the entire season.
Season 18 Barisi
As for this season’s yelling, I don’t think it has anything to do with Barisi either. It has to do with Sonny personally. He’s not just yelling at Barba. He’s been yelling at witnesses and perps, too. In a recent interview, Peter said he feels that Carisi has been going through something dark:
There’s been nothing said explicitly this season, but I feel like off screen he may be dealing with some heavy stuff.
So I think that’s what the yelling is about. I don’t know if Peter knows something we don’t, or if this is his way of rationalizing all the Angry Cop scenes he has to act out. Still, it seems that Sonny is working through some personal issues, and his relationship with Barba is an unintended casualty. As is his sense of humor. Then again, the writers haven’t really cultivated any of the interpersonal relationships in S18, or even the feeling of a “squad”, so this isn’t surprising.
Also, let’s not forget (even though the writers clearly have) that Barba set up a job interview for Sonny, with a Brooklyn ADA, as a favor (btw you know how Strauss was on the show last week? A Brooklyn ADA? But he was a defense attorney, suddenly? lol). We never did find out how that job interview went. Maybe Sonny didn’t get the job? And he’s mad, lol? And he’s taking it out on Barba, because Barba made him believe he could do it? But he can’t?
I’d like to think Sonny’s professional frustrations are getting the better of him, and he’s lashing out at Barba because Barba has the job Sonny wants. Problem is, Sonny needs to shit or get off the pot. You don’t get to backseat drive a criminal trial. Sonny is welcome to offer suggestions, but he’s in no position to make demands. Barba is the ADA, Sonny is the cop. Barba makes the trial-related decisions, and he doesn’t owe anyone an explanation. If Sonny is frustrated, he needs to blame himself for deciding to stay with the NYPD.
Maybe that’s exactly what he’s been doing, and that’s why he’s angry. I truly hope that’s the season-ending conflict/culmination of Sonny’s anger issues. Otherwise, it’s all pointless. Which could very well be the case, of course. The writers seem to think that yelling = tension, and when an episode is otherwise dull (so, like, every week), they add some anger. Unfortunately, Sonny seems to be the popular choice for those outbursts, which is strange, since his previous characterization was far more mellow.
Let Peter and Raul have fun acting together, please :D
Well if the exam tomorrow is only worth 10% of our assessed mark and our assessed marks only count for 50% of our final mark then each of the three segments of work in tomorrow's test is less than 2% each!
When a loud crack of thunder echoed through the apartment, Yoongi both cowered and relaxed. The thoughts of a storm raging outside while he was snug under his blankets comforted him, but the thunder definitely didn’t. Instead, Yoongi tucked his hands between his knees, bringing his chest down and trying to block out the loud noise.
A loud screech came from beneath the blanket when a flash from lightning along with the most booming crack came from the sky above. Yoongi should have known he’d end up here, he always did most nights, but he still tried to deny it.
Soft knocks accompanied by a groggy voice of “Yoongi?” prompted said man to walk in the other bedroom, feet shivering from the cold floor and shoulders hunched in fear.
Almost immediately, Hoseok opened his arms, flipping back the blanket and welcoming Yoongi in. Again, on instinct, Yoongi scrambled in, hand automatically curling around Hoseok torso when another rumble of thunder comes from above them.
“Shhh, take a deep breath, it’s okay.” Hoseok’s left hand rested on Yoongi’s head, fingers curling and massaging his scalp and hair. As always, the ministrations work, and Yoongi let out a breath he hadn’t known he was holding.
The heat of Hoseok’s body seeped into Yoongi’s brain, automatically making him limp. The thoughts of doing this every night, without having to ask, without this being all platonic, ran through Yoongi’s head.
Nothing could be heard from Hoseok, and Yoongi was sure it would take some time for himself to fall asleep, what with being surrounded in a warmth that will surely be gone in the morning. What started out as comforting a friend turned into torture for Yoongi, having to hold himself from saying everything on his mind.
“Thank you.” Yoongi whispered, nuzzling his head closer to Hoseok’s heart, hoping to somehow stake claim, live there forever, because it was warm, it would protect him from the thunder and the cold end of his bed.
Just as another crack of thunder came form above him, Yoongi turned his head slightly, lips so close to Hoseok’s chest, mumbling the words, “I love you Hoseok, so much.”
Yoongi hoped the thunder would drown out his voice, that Hoseok would never hear those words come out of his mouth, because Yoongi couldn’t take rejection.
Just as Yoongi was about to fall asleep, a pressure rested on his head, and his heart stopped. Hoseok pulled back from the kiss he placed on Yoongi’s hair, smiling and saying back. “I love you too, Yoon.”
Instead of being scared, the combined noise from Hoseok’s humming and the warm hand rubbing patterns into his back, Yoongi felt safe. As usual, Yoongi felt relaxed in Hoseok’s arms, but more so now that he knew Hoseok felt the same.
That was the best night of sleep Yoongi got in years.
