Dick: Dick is a pretty relaxed dude and the surgery is only minor so he isn’t very worked up about it. However, he is concerned that you will be in pain afterwards so he brings your favorite blanket, some stuffed animals, and your favorite snacks (that is if you’re not too sick to eat). When you wake up groggy and a bit confused he does his best to reassure you you’re alright.
Jason: Jason is a mess but does his best to hide it. He thinks of all the things that can go wrong but he knows it’ll upset you if he’s upset so he tries to find ways to calm himself down-he steals a stress ball from the nurses station and practically destroys it. When he’s allowed to go in your room his anxieties are calmed, then ceased when you start laughing and call out, “hey, sexy!” He totally knew you were going to be fine, anyway.
Damian: Damian plans out a whole day of relaxation for you when you return from the hospital. Face mask, bath, foot rubs, favorite movies. Unfortunately when you return you feel so crappy all you want to do is lay out on the couch and complain, which annoys him. He gets over it when you ask him to lay on the couch with you and cuddle.
How do you deal with writer’s block? Does allowing myself to be bogged down in existential despair count as ‘dealing with’ it?
Do you have a favorite movie? Yes, too many to count, though my favorite Disney film is Robin Hood (hence the name and icon).
Who is your favorite author? Neil Gaiman.
How did you start getting involved in fanfiction? Oh man. Uh, I started writing CSI: fanfic back in high school, then took a break during college but got dragged back in after the Les Misérables film/fandom ate my soul.
How did you get involved with Barisi? I’ve been a (mostly casual) fan of Raúl ever since I first heard the tick…tick…BOOM! soundtrack my freshman year of high school (2003), and this past spring was bored and scrolling through Tumblr and saw this gifset someone I follow reblogged and I was like, damn, when did Raúl get so hot, and also, when was he on SVU?? One Netflix binge later and oh boy, I was sunk. I told myself I was just going to write one fanfic, because I had an idea I couldn’t get out of my head, and now I’m up to almost fifty because apparently, I have no self-control.
What inspires you to write? Literally anything, especially other media: music, movies, tv shows, etc. If there’s one thing I do not have a shortage of, Lord knows it’s ideas. The motivation and time to actually write those ideas, well…that’s a different question.
What is your favorite fic that you have written? Probably the Seven Not-So-Deadly Sins of Sonny Carisi. It’s probably the most deeply personal thing I’ve written for the SVU fandom, and it turned into so much more than I intended when I set out to write it. I’ve toyed with writing a sequel (the Seven Not-So-Heavenly Virtues of Rafael Barba, of course), but I feel like I’d be trying to recapture something that was, for me at least, really magical, and the only thing I’d be doing is setting the fic up for disappointment.
What is your favorite quote from a fic of yours? Honestly? From my fic where Barba and Carisi go to Disney World:
“It’s a fantasy!” he snapped, loudly enough that a few people stopped and stared. “If you were waiting for a sign from the universe, Detective, we’re literally standing in Fantasyland between the Dumbo ride and the magic tea cups, and you somehow want to try to convince me this isn’t a fantasy?” Carisi shook his head slowly, but Barba again beat him to it. “I think it’s time we both grew up and realized that life isn’t a Disney movie and things don’t always work out.”
For a long moment, Carisi just stared at him, expression unreadable, and Barba braced for the goodbye he’d known was coming ever since that very first kiss.
Instead, Carisi grabbed his hand without warning and all but dragged him a hundred feet from where they were standing, ignoring his protests. “Here,” he said roughly, coming to a stop so quickly that Barba almost ran into him. Barba just stared up at him blankly, wondering where the hell Carisi was going with this. “You’re so worried about the future? Fine. But we’re not in Fantasyland anymore. We’re in Tomorrowland, and if we’re having this argument, we’re having it for real.”
Mainly because I literally built the entire fic around Carisi saying those last two lines and I’m damned proud of myself for it.
What is your personal favorite fanfic? I am a simple girl with simple wants and needs, and my biggest (non-sexual) kink is when one character has every reason and opportunity to walk away but instead chooses to stay. As such, perhaps it’s unsurprising that I think my personal favorite fic is
In Perfect Parts, part of the Mode & Moment series by
, chapter 4 especially. It is the pinnacle of fic, one of the greatest things I’ve ever read for its realness, and even though I’ve never been able to come close to emulating it, it’s inspired me in so many ways.
Anything else you would like to add? Mainly I want to give a shout-out to the Barisi fandom as a whole, which continues to be, by and large, the most supportive fandom I’ve been lucky to be a part of. I’m constantly blown away by the response to my writing. Y'all make it very easy for me to keep writing, and I can’t thank you enough for all you’ve done for me, especially during the past several months which have not been the greatest in my offline life. You’ve sustained me and encouraged me and kept me going just by being generally awesome, so thanks to everyone who helps makes this fandom great!
After a long day outside Billy and Steve cuddling on the sofa, Billy has a big blanket wrapped around him trying to get warm. Also they would be watching a Disney movie and drinking hot coco, all while billy bitches about the cold weather.
Okay so I had to wait til I got home, because I take this shit serious.
Okay look. The only way Billy Hargrove is sitting down to watch a Disney movie is if he’s high or it’s the only thing on TV and maybe a childhood favorite. OH also this is ya know before Little Mermaid brought in the new golden age of Disney animated movies. So like Billy’s childhood favorite (remembering that he wouldn’t have had a VCR in the 70′s) would be probably like…Robin Hood.
But I honestly prefer Billy clinging to Steve for warmth AND smoking weed and watching, I want to say, The Jungle Book. Which happens to be on TV. Can’t get to the video store, all snowed in.
Continuing in my five prompts in five days challenge, this one is for the-not-so-evil-queen who told me she wanted OQ and to surprise her. I’ve had several requests from others to continue Irresistible so I give you part two. It contains lines from the S3 finale and also porn lol. Hope you all enjoy!
Also, two people haven’t answered my in regards to the prompts they were due so I am going to open it up. The next two prompts I receive will be written this week!
She was nervous, which was ridiculous. It wasn’t as if she were some jittery virgin. Less then an hour ago she’d been fully prepared for Robin to take her on a table in her vault but then he’d stopped.
He’d told her he wanted to romance her. He’d wanted to make their first time special and take his time.
She’d been touched. Her stomach had fluttered with the butterflies that had become all to common when she was around him. With her heart pounding she’d agreed to give him an hour to plan a date.
The hour was up and as she walked toward her office her heart was pounding for a whole other reason.
Why you love Russell? Give 20 examples or more. :)
Oh god I love this question and I love you too. Here we go:
1- I think he’s an amazing actor. He always tries his best and he doesn’t care if the movie is big or not, his characters are so important to him that he’ll always do as much research as he can. Besides I think he’s so good making you feel the character and his feelings.
2- I love how much he loves his job. Acting is really important to him and he said that he’d do it for free just because for him there’s no better job. When his parents told him to go to college because that way he would have something to fall back on he said “I told them I might fall on my face occasionally, but I’d never fall back. Acting is my life.”
3- I fucking admired him a lot when Les Mis cast sang at the Oscars and he was there even when he had received a lot of bad reviews and jokes about his singing (and they weren’t deserved btw). He needn’t be there but he loved the movie and he wanted to be there for him and his fans.
4- He’s ALWAYS giving presents to everyone especially things of his rugby team
5- Now the rugby team. He was a fan since he was a kid and he loves it so much i mean THIS WAS HIS FACE WHEN HE BOUGHT IT. HE WAS SO FUCKING HAPPY I CAN’T
6- Another moment that makes me love him even more is when he won his Oscar (this makes me so proud idk) He’s just sitting there and he CANT BELIEVE THAT HE WON and of course his speech, which is amazing.
8- His love for animals. He loves talking about his horses and his farm and that makes him even cuter.
9- He’s such a good friend. And why I am saying this if I don’t know him? Well I think that having the same friends for 15 years says a lot about loyalty. I love how he’s always with Scott, Alan and Kevin and how he casts them in his movies (Robin Hood and Winter’s Tale)
10- He’s capable of admitting his mistakes and I think that says A LOT about a person. He apologized when he knew he screwed up and I admire that a lot.
11- When the phone thing happened he went to David Letterman (his appearance on the show had been announced before the ”scandal”) and I admire that he could have used his publicist, he could have decided not to go or he could have asked the program not to ask him about it but he prefered taking responsability and he even used it to apologized in public which I think it’s really brave and honorable.
12- He’s always making people laugh and he’s stupid
13- People say that he’s rude and mean and WHAT?? He’s always taking photos with fans and signing autographs even when he’s with friends having dinner or something
14- He doesn’t see himself as a Hollywood star. He prefers being in his farm or singing with friends
15- His twitter. Do I need to say more?
16- He donated a lot of things to an Australian museam and he asked famous friends to do the same (here). What’s more, he has made a lot of donations (x)
17- His passion for music
18- He fucking helped to built a pool in Australia which helped a lot of people especially people in wheelchairs (x)
18- He’s just like a big teddy bear
19- Come on he began his career as a musician with the name Russ Le Roq singing a song called ‘I just want to be like Marlon Brando’
20- He’s so intelligent. You can see in his interviews that he knows a lot about a lot of subjects and he tells amazing stories
21- If you want an honest answer about something, ask him. He won’t tell what you want to listen, he’ll tell you the truth.
22- This fucking quote of Bruce Beresford “Sensational …. the best, the most convincing actor I’ve ever seen. When Russell Crowe is in a film, he’s what you want to see. When he’s off the screen, you can’t wait until he comes back.”
I could say even more reasons :P sorry for the long post!
Even though Pan kind of had to perish in S3A, did you like his character even though he was a villian? I knew he was evil and all but I felt sort of bad when he (litteraly) got stabbed in the back by his own son. I am glad the whole Neverland thing is over, though. Now to the yellow brick road! Ha. Maybe I just miss Robbie Kay.
If you all haven’t guessed by now, Peter Pan was always my favorite fairytale growing up. I preferred watching that and Robin Hood over the princess movies, in fact. That said: yes, I did like Pan. I really liked Pan. I thought he was amazing as a villain. He was more psychologically threatening to everyone than villains of the past have been - and I was happily surprised with how AMAZING Robbie Kay portrayed him.
The only thing I did not like was the plot twist (*gasp*) that he was Rumple’s father. It was certainly clever, I’ll give them that. But I don’t know…maybe it was just personal preference, but I didn’t really want to see him be another part of the weird family tree and rather have him be his own entity in himself.
Do I want to see him back? Yes. I’m actually one of those people who’d love to see a reboot of OUaTiW Neverland style. I felt like there were SO many questions left unanswered.
