rape being used as a weapon of war is so heart wrenching. it was used during the partition of india, the french used it in algeria, serbians used it against bosnian women, it’s being used right now in syria and what’s so heart breaking is the fact that women choose to commit suicide because of the possibility of being raped. humanity never learns, we really have failed.
Am I the only one that doesn’t care at all that Mon El said that he loved Kara before Sanvers have said it? Like the relationship between Kara and Mon El is messy and lacks development, so I’m not surprised that he said that he loved her so quickly. In all honesty he may not even truly love her, she’s just the first person he’s truly been attached to and not a hook up, which he was doing on Daxam.
BUT Sanvers has been developed and I’m just waiting for that special moment that they actually say it. Not some type of “I’m saying this cause I don’t want to lose you bullshit,” but they say it cause it’s true. Cause they truly can’t live without one another and love each other, ride or die. When they do say it, it will be impactful and not easily forgotten like Mon El’s confession.
instead of doing the dishes in my sink that are probably gaining sentience as we speak, i made this list of headcanons re: the nine-nine’s group chat. (gina approved the name “nine-nine party line” because…..because) feel free to reblog with your own hcs! under the cut because i got carried away lmao
ok so let’s start it off with everyone’s display names in the chat. full disclosure, i don’t know if there’s actually a chat service that lets you change other people’s display names to the whole group, but for the sake of these i’m pretending there is
Jake actively changes his name to “cool” things
(kingjakerulez, deathblade, the barracuda, etc) but Amy keeps changing it to
In retaliation, Jake keeps changing Amy’s from Amy Santiago to
just dumb ridiculous names (fart monster, the second best detective in the
nypd, maxi pads, etc)
It’s a never-ending battle between the two and a running joke in the group
Gina sets her name to Queen G or Supreme Ruler or something and
everyone just agrees like “Yeah that seems right”
When Holt is added in, he’s simply Captain Ray Holt and Jake
immediately changes it to dad and after a few times of him switching it back
and Jake following suite, he gives up and relents to his unofficial dad status - he capitalizes the ’d’ though
Rosa is The Dagger or something equally as badass and no one
tries to change it out of fear for their lives
Once, Charles tried to change
it to Ro-Ro; let’s just say that after the fact, if anyone was contemplating
it, their mind was changed very quickly
The only person who’s ever successfully changed Rosa’s display name with minimal consequences was Gina when she set it to Scary Motorcycle Wife or something; Rosa just changed it back with a quiet laugh and a wink from Gina herself
Terry just puts himself in as Terry but after being reinstated,
he changes it to The Ebony Falcon and everyone is more than okay with that
Charles tries to leave his as Sidewinder after Jake dubs him so in “The Chopper” but someone (Rosa) keeps changing it to Mr.
Scully and Hitchcock are just Scully and Hitchcock but they
don’t know how group chats/phones work so they never contribute to the chat,
content to read everyone else’s messages
Also because the one time they tried to converse there, it didn’t make any sense because of Scully’s “weird dead hands”
OKAY SO ONTO THE CHAT CONTENT
For the most part, the chat is like 50% meme sharing and 50%
making plans to go to Shaw’s, asking who wants coffee in the mornings,
“this briefing is so boring”, “did you see Brian from HR grew a moustache”, etc.
Captain Holt instills a “no phones during morning briefings” rule after Jake sends everyone a stupid meme and the room bursts out in impromptu and unending laughter, although the rule was bound to happen one day anyways
“Detectives, I hope you’re aware of the fact that I, too, am in this group chat, and therefore can tell when you are texting and not paying attention to Sergeant Jeffords’ briefing.”
One day when it’s really quiet in the bullpen, Jake and Amy
start playing I Spy in the chat. It starts off pretty innocent but escalates to
the level of competitiveness that nearly gets them evicted from the group
kingjakerulez (1:07 PM): i spy something that is blue
Amy Santiago (1:07 PM): Literally everything in this building is blue, Jake.
kingjakerulez (1:08 PM): that’s a lie my tie is indigo
Amy Santiago (1:10 PM): …Indigo is a shade of blue.
kingjakerulez (1:10 PM): youre a shade of blue
Mr. Grapes (1:11 PM): Ah, young love
< Mr. Grapes has been removed from the chat >
“Oh my god, use your own damn chat for flirting” Gina
yells from her desk
Amy’s face goes bright red and Jake shoots Gina a Look™ and
insists they’re not flirting, they’re just killing time
Rosa chimes in, “Then kill time somewhere else. My phone
buzzed itself out of my pocket.”
Charles is the only one not opposed the I Spy messages and
insists everyone leave them be
“What you are seeing is the beginning of something profound
beautiful blossoming between two–”
“Charles, if you keep talking, Santiago might actually die –
her face is already unnaturally red and I don’t feel like taking any of my detectives to the hospital today” Terry grumbles from his desk
Gina put her foot down on in-chat flirting when Jake sends Amy 17 consecutive messages of just kiss-face emojis and they were banned for 3 days
Also because one time she almost replies to Rosa with something incredibly suggestive in the chat on impulse but catches herself before she presses ‘enter’
thank u to @amysartiago for listening to me yell about these hcs and also for providing the “gina kicking jake and amy out for 3 days” thing, and i reiterate that if u have anything to add, pls do!!
