What if someone started watching SVU for the first time in S18?
What would they think, if they had no prior knowledge of the show? What if they didn’t know anything about the dorky goofball Sonny used to
be? What if they didn’t know anything about Amanda’s turbulent past, or Liv’s struggle toward motherhood, or Barba’s big brass ego?
What would be their impression of each character?
A new viewer would think Sonny is a guy who got bullied as a kid, and is now overcompensating by being angry and loud, to prevent anyone else from walking all over him. They’d think Sonny is a hotshot lawyer-slash-detective
who always had everything figured out. They’d think
and wants to do the ADA’s job, even though he’s a cop. They’d think he is not a devoted cop, because he’s off doing job interviews without telling his boss. They’d think he’s generic and has no personality, no outside interests or hobbies (except crossword puzzles). A new viewer would probably not know Sonny has sisters and a niece, and is great with children. They would think he’s pessimistic, and jaded, and fed up with being a cop, because he can see it changing him for the worst.
A new viewer would think Amanda is the most professional and reliable squad member. They’d think she has a rocky relationship with her sweet sister, but nothing too bad, since they’re now living together. They’d think she is a little judgmental and harsh, but she’s justified in doing so, because she has her life together and she’s obviously very responsible. They’d think she is respectful of her superiors and always follows orders, even chastising her colleagues when they don’t. They’d think Liv trusts her with delicate personal matters, because she is Liv’s confidant and friend.
A new viewer
would probably know Amanda has a child, but only if they didn’t miss the one time baby Jesse was mentioned. They would think she barely knows Fin.
A new viewer would think Barba is a sweet and sassy guy who is trying his best, but needs input from Liv and Sonny in order to do his job, because he can be indecisive. They’d think he’s funny and quick-witted, but relies on sass to cover up his shortcomings, namely that he can’t win a case unless Liv talks to the victim or his witnesses. They’d think Barba is not one of those prosecutors who can make or break a case (say, a Cabot or a Cutter), but he has to rely on the cops he works with. Liv, especially, since he follows her instructions every week.
They’d think he’s meek, and quiet, and accepts multiple putdowns from his colleagues without standing up for himself, because he doesn’t like conflict.
They’d think he’s a good friend to Liv, and a good listener, and a supportive, warm person who has no personal issues of his own. No worries, no concerns, no anxieties. They’d think Barba is happy and settled, and the perfect sounding board, because he has no firm opinions.
A new viewer would think Fin is Ice-T, and that would be good enough for them, lol. They would also know he was once in the Rangers (unless they blinked during that episode) and he wants to make Sergeant.
A new viewer
would probably not know Fin has a family.
A new viewer would think Liv is sanctimonious, and self-righteous, and has to make everything about herself, or her son. They’d think she is willing to dismiss the wishes of the victims, as well as the strategy of the prosecutor, just to get the result she wants (which varies, sometimes it’s a conviction and sometimes it’s a plea deal). They’d think she doesn’t trust her squad enough to delegate, because she is a Lieutenant and yet she’s always out on the field, talking to people the squad has already interviewed. They’d think she is wholly unable to balance her work life and her personal life, and has probably never had a successful relationship in her life (oops that part’s true lol). They’d think she supports victims passionately, except when she doesn’t, like when she knows the parent of a rapist, and she’s willing to allow him to fabricate evidence to exonerate his guilty son.
yes i know this is not 100% accurate, or even 90%, i’m exaggerating for effect lol
also you know this is at least 75% accurate, admit it
Who is more true to character in S18? is anyone lol?
Is there anyone out there who started watching this season? Please show yourselves! Do you agree? Did you go back to watch the earlier episodes? What did you think about your faves?
What happens when you love the memory of a character, but not the current, actual character? What if the disparity is so great that you can no longer fanwank see them as the same person? Do you view them as a new (inferior) character, played by the same actor? And how long until you stop caring?
ngl i’ll keep caring as long as i get mah eye candy
but i will only care on a shallow level, because i may not have feelings but i still got eyes
Brain stahp stop coming up with new AUs from looping the new subunit songs
I haven’t even finished the JobSetAU doodles/headcanons yet
If you like these, you are free to take these headcanons and write/draw lolol
CYR’s P.S. no Mukougawa (On the Other Side of a Postscript) A couple broke up some time ago on good terms - there wasn’t really any reason for breakup, both just felt that this relationship won’t last and they better end it while they still thought fondly of each other. GirlB moves away soon after. GirlA, however, begins to feel like something’s missing in her life. Her mind wanders to her ex whenever she least expects it, such as when she is just sipping tea in a cafe, or even just doing crossword puzzles. She regrets ending the relationship so early, but she remains positive and believes that they would meet some time again and when they do, she will try to work on their spark again.
GirlB also feels the same, and she’s obtained GirlA’s contact information through a friend. She’s too shy to take a direct approach, so she decides to write GirlB a friendly-casual postcard with a postscript: P.S. I miss you A fluffy, diabetes-inducing shoujo story? XD
AZA’s Lonely Tuning A freelance composer is at a pinch at creating a melody she is satisfied with. She sits in a cafe, jotting down notes with her headphones on, trying to refine this new tune she just can’t seem to perfect. She always sees this girl waiting for her bus outside the cafe; the girl looks stressed, perhaps even a bit melancholic, most of the time. The composer is intrigued at first, merely curious about the girl and what could be causing her to wear such expression. The more the composer wonders, the more attracted she becomes to the girl. Whenever the composer is at home, she’d look out of the window or even go on the balcony and gaze at the night sky, wondering how the girl is doing and if anything is able to cheer her up. Repeatedly and tirelessly, she edits the tune hoping to give it to the girl one day, see if the music would bring a smile to her face.
Little does the composer know, the girl has noticed her too… A simple, light-hearted romance story that could have drama in between
GK’s Guilty Eyes Fever After a one-night-stand, GirlA regrets it and wants to pretend that the night of passion ever happened, though a small voice in the back of her mind seeks more. The night of passion empowers her with confidence, something she lacks in everyday life. GirlB is unable to forget GirlA, wanting to get to know her more. Luck is on GirlB’s side as the two keeps running into each other, whether at cafes, on transit, in grocery stores and so on. GirlB doesn’t push it - she chats with GirlA to understand more about her and only flirts from time to time. If they somehow meet at night, GirlB lets GirlA lead the conversations, or if they get touchy, GirlB would entice GirlA but allows GirlA to take control. She wants GirlA to truly fall for her out of her own volition - to be the first to admit she needs her, even though GirlB herself is the one falling deeper in to this web of love.
GirlA realizes her growing desire to be with GirlB but still struggles to fight against temptation in spite of losing to it every time. Most likely a smutty/limey drama? angsty? story
i don’t know if any of you remember Motthieu, but I decided to make a low poly-ish model of him for my open-ended post-thesis assignment! I had a lot of fun and might do a few more things with him in the future >:3c
it's me, the nervous anon again lol. there was one interview back in february that people flipped about on twitter. she basically implied that the engagement thing was a joke, that the quad flip held 0 symbolic value to viktor and yuuri, and actually brought up how some japanese fans *did* in fact need clarification on the kiss (unlike how she stated they didn't earlier) but still proceeded to be ambiguous regarding it. ive been sort of shaken up ever since? and every time i hear (1/2)
I’m not sure I got the second part of your ask!!! Sorry D:
Ohhhhh hmm that’s weird of her?? I’m afraid I haven’t seen that interview but I could see how you’d be concerned – nevertheless I’d just have faith and hope!!! <3 <3 I think it’ll be fantastic, and hey, if not, we always have season one!
Pick whatever you like- fighting/practising/exercising together leading to smut. Also any overused cliche trope that every ship has: fake dating, mild jealousy which leads to hilarious situation, etc. Colleen introduces him to pop culture that he missed (bonus if it's GoT for obvious reasons). Smut? :D You could write anything for that ship and I'd read it lol. And no hurry I'm glad someone's even asking for prompts <3
you said ‘the two of them watch GoT.’ I comply. starting with crack is always a good idea. HOPEFULLY IT’S DECENT if not forgive me I’m still getting the feel of the characters but the next one should be better xD
“And we should watch this… why?”
Colleen is suddenly quite sad that her phone is charging in the next room over, because the expression he pulled deserved to be saved for posterity and she could have taken a picture, but that’s sadly not going to happen - she doubts he’d hold it for thirty seconds.
“You look more perplexed than I’d have thought.”
“… Game of Thrones? It just sounds stupid. How do you play anything with a throne?”
She snorts as she turns on the DVD player. “Well, you said you wanted to catch up with pop culture before we leave, and this is the rage these days.”
“Bloody and ambitiously epic… it’s addictive… once you start, Thrones dominates your life?” He reads from the back cover of the DVD as she puts the first one in the player. “Seriously?”
They apologized before you even posted that screenshot dude. Come on. If you're gonna make fun of someone at least blank their username so they won't receive any more hate.
Hmmm… I think if someone does something as stupid and tasteless as bringing up their fandom in a discussion abt real people getting murdered and tortured, they deserve all the hate that gets sent back their way, even if they do apologize ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Oh my god lmao you are really going for it today!!! Let it be known that this is the only thing I’m answering about this, because I have Harry and his beautiful new single to focus on, and I can’t waste my time with this.
If I complain about something, it means I’ve personally seen it. I’m glad that you didn’t see people who are celebrating the link, but I have gone into the various tags and seen it so I don’t know why when someone complains about something, there’s always someone else that has to go “THIS ISN’T HAPPENING, YOU MADE IT UP!!!” I don’t fancy making up this kind of stuff????? Why would I even???????? People literally said that any promo is good promo and his team planned this, how do you /read/ this? What’s your interpretation?
Also, “people are amused about the tweet with the Louis pics” No, people aren’t amused, people are celebrating it, people are using it as #proof, people are taking a huge and gross invasion of PRIVACY and making it into something that’s not. What’s there to be amused by? How would you feel if someone hacked your tumblr and posted for you? How would you feel if someone guessed your Facebook password and used it to do whatever they want with your profile? Like, if speaking against gross behaviours makes me a twat, I’m gonna be the biggest twat of all.
