The December Perspectives: Cigarettes and Eggnog (Finn’s POV, Final)
Fandom: My Mad Fat Diary
Synopsis: Set of 7 alternating POV fics set between Friday, December 6, 1996, two days after “Glue” (S2XE7), and Friday, December 13, 1996, Rae’s birthday. Each will be from the perspective of someone in the gang (Rae, Chloe, Izzy, Archie, Chop, Finn, and Danny). The character relationships will pick up where S2E7 ended and hopefully tie into wherever they are when S3E1 takes us back to Lincolnshire.
Inspired by the holiday season (a full year after I posted the original installment) and a need to complete at least one of my WIPs.
Thursday, December 12, 1996: Cigarettes and Eggnog
Birthdays are the worst. I’m going to fuck it up.
Finn critically assessed the collection of records lined up in one of the numerous plastic crates under his record player while perched on the balls of his feet in a squat, securely anchored to the floor thanks to the thick, black boots he’d neglected to take off after crashing through the front door half an hour before. His leather jacket lay on the floor next to the armchair on the far side of the room, discarded as if a careless afterthought amidst various other articles of clothing littered around the room. The disheveled teenager let out an audible sigh. “Shit…”
A voice from the bed behind Finn interrupted his train of thought, “Just pick one, dickhead.”
My Favourite Things About Rizzoli & Isles Season 5 Episode 18
1. Favourite colour combo for Jane: dark shirt / light suit
2. She simply looks pretty here.
3. Jane: What is physics? Susie: Only the greatest language ever!
4. Mix tape!
5. Gasp! Aviators!
6. Maura had a “revelation” about Jane…. and if you don’t think it’s a sexy / romantic revelation about Rizzles, then you’re wrong.
7. Angie Harmon’s ass
8. This entire scene made me breathtakingly speechless. Thank you for it.
9. Goodbye Season 5!
Overall? I don’t think it was the worst season ever. I think maybe episode 17 and 18 should have been switched. It must be difficult to put your own “stamp” onto something and still maintain the status quo. Some nice moments, some forgettable scenes…. Not the greatest, but not the worst.
Things I would like to see for Season 6? I would love to see a story arc… with perhaps a criminal nemesis who terrorises / menaces the leads. It would be great to really punish and hurt the characters to give the actors some more depth to sink their acting “teeth” into. I would also like to see both Sasha and Angie take on a more executive role, such as writer / director etc.
