“I will come as the rain.
I will come as the first snowfall.
I will beg the Heavens

Sonny Thoughts

Based on this script spoiler posted here by @minidodds​:

Ummmm.

Thought 1: Is Rollins actually blaming a victim of abuse (a mother of an abused child, I’m guessing) for “letting” a man hit a child? Do the SVU writers think victim blaming is better when done by a female character? And can we get one single episode without a “bad” mother? And do Amanda’s issues run that deep, that she thinks every single woman (including herself) is possibly a terrible mother? What the fuck, writers?

Thought 2: Do we really need the male character to explain the cycle of abuse to a woman who’s probably had her fair share or run-ins with abusive assholes? Not to mention, a woman who’s suffered psychological abuse at the hands of her own family? If it were that easy to escape it, why has Amanda been completely unable to cut off her mother and my queen Kim? It’s one thing to have Amanda being judgmental about addiction (also troubling, but more consistent with a recovering addict who is trying hard to stay on the straight and narrow), but this? And, again, a man with no children chimes in to set her straight? What the fuck, writers?

Thought 3: What if the writers are attempting to retcon Sonny as a victim of abuse in his childhood?

(just spitballing here, of course, to balance out all the Barba theories with some Sonny ones)

Depending on how Peter plays that scene and if it doesn’t get cut and then posted as a “deleted scene" a week later, it’s a possibility. The text is somewhat suggestive, isn’t it? “It beats you up on the inside”? This would fit with Sonny’s anger (almost to the point of rage) when working cases with underage victims, and it might also explain why he’s always so sweet to children and teens.

It might clash with his early happy-go-lucky characterization though, and with the fact he’s always painted the picture of a happy family with a bunch of sisters and a dad who loved inflatable Santas. That, plus all the early interviews, when Carisi was first introduced, clearly stating that the “new guy” had a healthy family life, unlike Amaro and Rollins (and Barba). Then again, we have never gotten the slightest solid hint about Sonny’s home life (except when he said he never told his parents he was applying to college), and this type of retcon is nothing unusual for a network drama.

Or, what if Sonny sounds so knowledgeable because one of his sisters has suffered domestic abuse? And he tried to help her? Maybe when he was a teenager himself? What if she’s still struggling? That would be interesting, and it would honor the classic Carisi trait of saying “my sister…” every few minutes.

I’d imagine there’s a chance Sonny is just saying this because, like, he’s read it in a psychology book (also consistent with Sonny’s personality plus the writers’ aversion of giving anyone a personal storyline this season) or he had a friend of a friend etc, but still, he could be speaking from experience.

What do you guys think?

Dear. God.

I haven’t read something new this good in ages.

Guys. This story has some premise similarities to The Fic That Shan’t Be Named, but that is pretty confidently where things end. It seems the author didn’t even know that story existed but read it after it was brought to their attention and assures us it won’t go down the same way.

So ahhh…pile in, guys- this is gonna be a good one. Oh how I’ve missed dark, screwed up, overly-confident Kylo, a strong and resistant Rey who’s still capable of feelings, and smut so good they don’t even have to do it to be perfect. That is what we’re dealing with here, folks, so climb aboard!!!

for @pixilatedpocky and @anxietyhermit in particular because they were kind enough to cry about my au with me

bonus:

i think these days i’m a little less enthusiastic about sh… and not in a bad or sad way, it’s more like my appreciation for it is more healthy now. like i’ve said before i tend to idealize the things i love and that always works well for me UNTIL i am forced to face the reality that no media is perfect and that’s what happened with this show too. and i really think i can see it more objectively now, i can be passionate about the things that are good about it but it’s not… the only thing making me happy anymore. it shouldn’t be that way. it’s not the only good thing in my life

Get to Know Me Meme (anime version): 2/5 otp’s 
↳Suoh Mikoto/Munakata Reisi (Mikorei) from K. Mikoto was the former third and red king of Shizume City and Reisi was his rival as the fourth and blue king. They are fundamentally different people, with diametrically opposed views on everything from philosophy to ideology to leadership style. Despite their combative and political rivalry, they had a unique and peculiar friendship, as they were the only ones who understood each other’s kingly burdens. At the end of the first season of the anime, Mikoto entrusted Reisi to kill him and in the process save the entirety of the city, thus showing that they had an inexplicable amount of trust between them. Even after Mikoto’s death, Reisi is still sometimes haunted by thoughts of him.
