Imagine: when Jake finds out Amy is pregnant with his child, he immediately starts reading parenting books because he’s so concerned he won’t be a good dad due to the fact his dad was terrible. Jake’s like “Babe, where’s your parenting binder?”. Amy tells him it’s in the spare room with the rest of her binders. Jake replies that he’s already read that one but all it had was info on things such as controlled crying, when to vaccinate, and pros/cons of breastfeeding vs formula. “Where’s the one that tells me what to say when a kid teases him, what to do when he cries because he hurt his knee, when to step in when he’s learning to ride a bike?” Amy replies “Jake, we’re months off being parents. This is weird because you should be the one to tell me to relax not the other way around. Besides, I did have a binder for the father of my child but I threw it out when I married you. You don’t need anything to tell you how to be a good father.”
I don’t even watch b99 but I’m so here for it. Give me all the edits. The jokes. I want updates on the high-key adorable father/son relationship between the cool black guy (not the one who is literally a giant fluff ball but the one who seems like a nicer Arnold Schwarzenegger) and the main dude who’s the overly smiley nerd. Also the girl that guy dates is the purest and I hope she enjoys her camps. Also that aforementioned fluff ball, is he happy? I hope so. And that kick-butt lady is goals, she feels like Ron and April from parks and rec but a cop. I just really like this show and I know zero names
Summary/Request: Requested by anon:
Could you do a one shot where the Jake (b99) and reader go to an amusement park and when they get home he rubs their feet because they’re so sore. (I just got home from an amusement park and me feet are killing me😫😫) thanks so much!
sometimes it still amazes me that despite gifsets of scenes getting so many notes on tumblr thanks to it being a genuinely funny, unproblematic show, not a lot of people actually watch brooklyn nine-nine?? listen y’all if you’re tired of tv shows being misogynistic, racist, homophobic, and all around problematic then i honestly don’t understand why you have not seen the light by watching b99 like this show has made my life so much better!! i have TWO beautiful, badass, multi layered latina detectives to look up to, who are treated with respect and admiration by their male co-workers!! i have actual cinnamon roll jake peralta who has never done Anything Wrong in his life, despite being the white male main character; he always treats his women partners as equals, and is disgusted when other male side characters say misogynistic things!! i have captain raymond holt, a black, gay police CAPTAIN who has worked his entire life to move past prejudice to get to where he is!! his sexuality is not used as the butt of ANY joke, but is simply just another part of his multi layered character, and he is shown to have a healthy relationship with his husband!! the most important relationship on this show?? the relationship between all of them, whether in duos/trios/or a whole squad, focusing on how despite how different they all are, they all love each other and have made a family out of such a group!! it also has no chill, talking about real police issues, how women have to stick together, and taking usual stereotypes and stomping all over them!! there’s no need to worry about characters being killed off for shock value or to cause manpain!! honestly there is absolutely nothing wrong with this show: it is genuinely funny, the characters are lovable, the relationships realistic and healthy, and it deserves much more recognition than it’s getting.
tldr; watch brooklyn-nine nine. you will not regret it.
