it was a damn throwaway comment

Love Lock

Prompt: “Because I love you God damn it.”
Fandom: Criminal Minds
Pairing: Luke Alvez x Reader

This is a response to a request I received a while back from @wadewilsonnn. I’m slowly making my way through my ask box! Thank you for your support and I hope you enjoy reading it :)

You froze in confusion as you swung open your apartment door. You weren’t expecting to see your superintendent stood outside, tool box in hand.

“Can I help you?”

“Sorry to disturb you Ms Y/L/N, but I’m here to fix the faulty lock on your front door and update your security system.” He smiled at you kindly as you gestured for him to come inside your apartment.

“Thank you so much! I can’t even remember reporting these maintenance issues, I’ve been so busy with work.” You explained, leaning up against the wall as the superintendent began adjusting the lock with a screwdriver.

“You didn’t Ms Y/L/N, your nice boyfriend called up to inform me. He’s a keeper that one.” He cheerfully called to you as he rummaged around in his bag.

You raised your eyebrows in surprise. You’d been dating your boyfriend Luke Alvez for a couple of months now. It was still quite early in your relationship, but you were both falling fast for one another. It just felt so natural - as if you’d known each other your whole lives.

Consequently, you’d spent a lot of time at each other’s places. Often Luke’s apartment was the setting of most of your dates, it was just easier that way - given his hectic job as an FBI agent and his responsibilities to his dog Roxy. You weren’t complaining, you loved spending the night at Luke’s place - especially given how much you adored playing with Roxy.

However, following your wonderful date last night, you’d invited him inside your apartment. You hadn’t thought twice about his inquiries about your broken lock and faulty alarm, you’d been much too preoccupied with unbuttoning his shirt.

He’d left early the next morning, murmuring sincere apologies about a new case coming up in the office. You’d just smiled softly before gently kissing him goodbye.

He’d texted you from the plane, informing you that he’d be away in Florida for the next couple of days and that he already couldn’t wait to see you again. You’d assumed that would be the last contact you’d have until the case was solved, the BAU was very demanding.

But, apparently Luke had found the time to contact your superintendent about the security problems in your apartment.

You pulled out your mobile as you strolled into your living room, dialling Luke’s number. You grinned at the sound of his deep voice.

“Hey, how’s the case going?”

“Pretty good actually, we’ve already been able to deliver the profile. Hopefully we’ll catch the unsub soon and I’ll be back as soon as possible.” You could hear the smile in his warm tone.

“I hope so.” You bit your lip as you pondered your next words. “My superintendent stopped by to fix my lock and alarm…”

You heard Luke chuckle softly. “Good, I didn’t like the thought of you being home alone without proper security.”

“You know I can look after myself Luke.” You sighed. You really did appreciate his concern, but felt a little defensive over your independence. Stubbornness had always been a flaw of yours. “Why did you do it?”

You heard him scoff in disbelief down the phone. “I did it because I love you God damn it.” There was an awkward silence following his outburst. It was the first time either of you had used the l-word.

It suddenly made sense to you. You felt touched by his concern. He cared enough to remember the tiny details and throwaway comments about your door not locking properly.

You heard him sigh heavily. “Look I’m sorry Y/N, I didn’t meant to blurt that out like that. I just-”

“I love you too.”

“You do?” Luke sounded surprised yet the elation in his voice was evident.

You laughed softly. “Of course I do Luke…and thank you for looking out for me.”

showvigilance  asked:

How do you think the Jon/Dany relationship will go? Kit Harington said once in an in interview that they would either fuck or fight (he might have been trolling us but who knows). So what do you personally think might happen in the upcoming season with the mother of dragons and our KiTN? And what about Sansa? How will she react to that, if we presume she has feelings for Jon? Thanks in advance:)

**putting my answer under the cut, just in case this winds up in a j/d tag when it’s not fuckin’ supposed to but this is tumblr so who knows** **but i’m not about to start drama bc i’m tired and also not an asshole** **anyway consider this your disclaimer: this is not a j/d-friendly post**

Why I Think Farkle Should Be Like The 'Shawn' of This Show and Have More ~Dramatic~ Character Arcs
  • Farkle parallels Shawn in the “first meeting” scene in Bay Window
  • We’ve known from a few episodes into season 1 that his parents have a shitty marriage
  • They fight constantly, like Virna and Chet used to
  • Boy is visibly going through some shit omfg
  • Like it’s either the writers purposefully having that or Corey is a bad actor? Which he isn’t. So it’s intentional.
  • Trust me it takes a lot to go from “colorful-hyperactive-boy-talking-a-mile-a-minute” into ‘all-dark-greys-and-blacks-look-at-my-teen-angst-as-I-mumble-words-now"
  • Most tv shows and movies use dark clothing as a visual cue that a character is going through a hard time/has depression. And the way Farkle seems to have lost his energy backs that up tbh
  • Also to back this up, Shawn was always in darker clothes than Cory
  • Throwback to Shawn always being disrespectful to authority figures because a lot of kids act out when they don’t know how to handle bad situations
  • Throwback to Farkle literally antagonizing the old English teacher into retirement
  • And in the same episode they used Turner to reinforce how much Farkle is like Stuart. Except, you know, Stuart would never disrespect a teacher
  • Farkle’s mental health WHY IS THIS BOY ALWAYS FAINTING
  • DOES HE SLEEP
  • Or are his parents yelling too loudly jfc
  • And oh hey didn’t Shawn sleep in class a lot??? Could’ve easily been 'home problems’ written off as laziness, and then by the time he’s with Turner he’s developed a sleep cycle that’s too hard to break
  • That whole Autism thing??? Like okay yes he doesn’t have Asperger’s. But wtf medical professional says “Well hey kid I don’t know what the fucks up with you I quit we’ll just stop testing now” like omfg
  • Also okay listen up do you know what’s better than a direct parallel??? An indirect parallel. Opposites. We could go to town with Farkle/Shawn bullshit omfg
  • Shawn’s dirt poor, even homeless a few times. Farkle’s the son of a multibillionaire. But both grow up in situations that leave them escaping to the Matthews place just so they don’t have to hear all the screaming??? Holy shit.
  • Two different situations resulting in the same feelings of emotional neglect, depression, alllll the things that fuck up kids coming from unhappy homes
  • ALSO Shawn was always very insecure about his intelligence. Shawn never applied himself in school because Shawn firmly believed he was stupid. He thought his only real redeeming quality was being attractive (which is, of course, because that’s one of the only things people ever validated for him; People tried to get him to try harder, but no one ever really sat down and beat it into his head that he’s more than a pretty face, he's smart and a good person)
  • Farkle is incredibly insecure about everything but his intelligence. He doesn’t think he’s attractive, he doesn’t think he’s funny, he’s literally said that he doesn’t see why his friends like him. (And apart from a cute “You don’t have to impress us! We love you just the way you are!” no one’s really validated him either. No one’s really told him why they like him so much- just like with Shawn, failing to see the depth of the insecurities and therefore failing to convince him that he’s worth more than his mind.)
  • So basically both need outside validation and in their minds, their only redeeming quality is something the other one hates about himself. Do you just. See how golden this is.
  • We know Chet genuinely loved Shawn, but he was completely unable to express that the right way. Because of his alcoholism and gambling and assortment of other problems, Chet had it in his head that what was best for Shawn was anything but himself.
  • Minkus clearly loves Farkle- but it seems very strained. Like, every time he comes on the show it seems like there’s more of a wall between them.
  • Whereas a lot of Chet and Shawn’s problems tended to boil down to 'Chet can’t hold a job’, Stuart and Farkle’s problem is that Stuart’s working too much.
  • Virna stormed out and came back again how many times???? Way too many. Didn’t Cory make a quip about it in Master Plan, like 'oh hey it’s Tuesday, better leave my family’ (I really don’t remember the actual line)
  • “This is the ring my mother keeps throwing at my father’s head! But she always wants it back by Thursday, so I need to move fast.”
  • The few times we saw Virna on the show, she’d always claim that she loved Shawn and he was the most important thing in her life. Except, you know, her actions clearly showed otherwise. She never took him with her when she left, even one time took their entire home, knowing that would leave a 12 year old on the streets. Fought loudly with her husband when she knew he could hear, enough that he considers “I WANNA BE NORMAL, CHET” something…well, normal to hear. There was that whole thing where Cory was trying to convince her to go home??? And she was like “They have to learn how to be a family”??? And she said it as if any problems Shawn had weren’t her fault at all??? Then of course we can’t forget about the time she found out Chet died, and promptly sent him a letter that boiled down to “I’m not your real mom never contact me again”.
  • We’ve seen Jen on gmw exactly once, and it was…weird. She seemed really controlling in her marriage with Stuart, she brushed off everything she did on bmw as if it was a normal teenage mistake. And omfg then when she was like “Nothing ever scared me, but since I had a child, the thought of something happening to him haunts me” or whatever
  • mmmhmmm O.K. Sweetie, so then where were you on DECEMBER 25TH, 2014, CHRISTMAS DAY, WHEN INSTEAD OF BEING HOME WITH HIS FAMILY, YOUR SON IS OUT ON THE MATTHEWS FIRESCAPE, AT NIGHT, ALL ALONE, NO COAT ON, 12 YEARS OLD, NEW YORK CITY, ARE YOU KIDDING ME???
  • Or literally all the other times where Farkle is literally just shown to be spending all his time on Riley’s fire escape (I think it’s safe to assume he’s there to escape his parents fighting, because idk why they’d even mention it in season 1 if they weren’t eventually going somewhere with it you know?). But like. He’s 12 in season 1??? I feel like if Jen was really worried about something happening to him, maybe she wouldn’t be letting him walk around alone at night in New York with barely a coat on. And fire escapes are not always the safest places in the world. Am I crazy or…?
  • So I really do think that focusing on Farkle’s home life could be a great arc to cover, you know? There are kids that have to deal with parents fighting constantly, and they usually manage to convince themselves that everything wrong in the relationship is their fault. There are kids that have to deal with feeling ignored and neglected.
  • And also, I know very few people can identify with him on the 'multibillionaire father’ aspect, but there are a lot of times where people’s problems get brushed off or not taken seriously because they have a lot of money. Like that is literally a thing. And it could be interesting to see handled, like “just because someone can afford more than you doesn’t mean that they live a better life than you” or something.
  • In gm Money, his little “He’s not…around the house that much.” tore my damn heart out and honestly come on they can do so much with Stuart and Farkle’s relationship they don’t gotta indirectly parallel Chet and Shawn forever p l s
  • Okay and like consider the fighting gets worse and Farkle starts acting out even more- becomes a little more notably like Shawn
  • And once people notice they realize his little throwaway comments about his parents relationship shouldn’t, well, be thrown away
  • Y'all know Cory’s gonna figure out something’s up when he has to give Farkle an F on a history test
  • They could have Stuart and Jen finally giving up and getting a divorce and show how that effects the kid
  • I don’t think either of them would be civil about it I think there’d be a nasty custody battle
  • Farkle coming over to Riley’s in the middle of the night for angsty Bay Window talks because he feels like his entire life is going to hell
  • It could be used to explain why he’s loved Riley since first grade- whether she knew she was doing it or not, she always manages to cheer him up when he’s upset
  • (Honestly I think that’s a probable. Why else would he always go to her house? He knows where his other friends live)
  • I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again- If they do the divorce route, I deadass want to see Jen winning custody and deciding to move back to Philadelphia. We’d get a retelling of “Topanga Moves To Pittsburgh” storyline. I want it omfg (Lucas moving back to Texas would be too obvious a choice. Like a 'groan loudly and ignore the episode exists bc this is dumb’ too obvious.)
  • Everything we’ve seen and heard about the marriage so far is lowkey on my radar like Jen’s throwing things at him and “You told me to marry you” and “Who does what I say?” “Everybody!”
  • Like consider somebody actually taking time to acknowledge men can be trapped in abusive relationships HOLY SHIT.
  • ESPECIALLY ON A SHOW WITH A LOT OF KIDS WATCHING IT
  • ESPECIALLY SINCE THEY’VE ESTABLISHED THIS IS A WELL OFF, VERY SMART MAN, AND THEY CAN’T SAY HE GOT TRAPPED BECAUSE HE’S WEAK OR STUPID (which is what too many people say about male victims)
  • BUT NO THEY KNOW HE’S SMART AND SUCCESFUL SO CAN YOU IMAGINE SOMEONE BOTHERING TO DO THAT STORY
  • u g h ohmyGod so much to work with there I can’t
  • But yeah you can get a lot of drama out of Farkle and I think it’d be super interesting
  • Especially when you compare episode 1 Farkle to current Farkle- a lot has changed omg
  • Depression storylines are important we all know this
  • Also I just really want Cory and Farkle to have a lowkey Turner and Shawn relationship is that too much to ask for
  • It’d be great
  • Also if we’re being real, every show has 'that’ character who life just constantly fucks over and so far that looked like it was set up to be Maya but she’s not doing the job well lol
  • Riley seeing he’s upset or not telling them something and doing her Riley Thing to get him to open up
  • Corey can handle the acting I have faith in him
  • I had a lot more points than this but it’s after 3 in the morning
  • Overall from the standpoint of a writer, this would be a great direction to take the character and I really hope the show writers deliver
