okay i’m stupid and tired and almost forgot about the barisi fandom meetup!!
anyway, here i am.
so hello followers, let me introduce myself, my name is logan, i’m canadian, i obviously love barisi and kpop. i’m not entirely sure what to talk about here so i’ll just rant for a bit; about barisi, svu, my blog, etc etc.
so, my parents have always liked svu, i remember hating it because it would take up space on the pvr and it would air at the same time as castle so my family wound fight over which show to watch. eventually, i walked in on s16 ep17, parole violations, and that’s when EVERYTHING started. i started to watch a few episodes more frequently. then i talked about them at school, specifically to my now girlfriend-then best friend. i distinctly remember me trying to describe amanda to her while we were walking home from school. anyway, i started watching svu to impress her… that lasted for a while… until the season ended and i had no way to watch it.
then, months later, i was on ao3. now, when i search for fics, i press the search button, then click ‘edit search’. but, after you press ‘search’ it brings up every single fic on the site. every. single. one. and what was the first one to pop up? a barisi fic. out of the two-some odd-million fics on ao3, the one that popped up was a barisi one. now me, knowing who they were, shrugged, and said 'hmm i’ll read it’.
and boiiiii i was ruined. that happened in the morning before school, so for the entire day in class, i was SCREAMING about barisi. i wasn’t even pronouncing carisi’s name right, i was a mess. anyway, i got home that night and binge read almost every barisi fic on ao3 at the time. i was obsessed.
then, march break this last year, i found out svu was on netflix, and oh boy this is when it got bad. i binge watched the four seasons that were on netflix at the time and i was DEAD. i remember the thumbnail between episodes was one where the squad was all hunched around the table. barba and carisi next to each other, and i thought, yeah, i ship them.
now, i continued to read barisi on and off, i continued to watch svu, but when it really got bad was when i got tumblr. i actually got tumblr many, many months before i started posting. but on one fateful night when i was bored out of my mind with an essay, i decided to reblog some barisi gifs. and that’s when everything accelerated.
i literally just followed all my recommend blogs, reblogged a crap ton of barisi stuff and made a sonny gif. that sonny gif is what i really think blew up my acc. not totally, but it’s what earned me my first followers. from there on, i had a few url switches, but eventually, i ended up here. 440 followers and over 1000 posts later, here i am, trash and all.
sometimes it still blows me away, that there actually is a barisi fandom. every couple days i do his thing where i think 'wait is this actually real? like we’re talking about the same people, right?’
i’m lame idk.
so yeah, i’m a BIG supporter of the barba-is-demiromantic headcanon. i also just generally love barisi fluff.
and if i could leave you with one thought, it would be, read the sweet barisi series (on ao3). it’s what REALLY got me hooked on barisi and it still rips my heart out to this day :’)
/i feel like i’m the only boy in this fandom oops/
