I’m the midst of Rizzoli and Isles ending, I think we should also take a moment to thank the one person most responsible for these characters: Tess Gerritsen. Yes, Sasha and Angie and the rest of the cast should most definitely be recognized for their amazing portrayals of these beautiful characters we’ve fallen in love with over the past seven years, but without Tess Gerritsen’s amazing, creative mind, we would have never gotten to fall in love with Jane and Maura. So yeah, thank you Tess Gerritsen for giving us these characters.
Alright, folks. This little oneshot was inspired by conversations with batmanshipsthegays and the following quote from Sasha: “I think Maura would love Helene. I actually think she would even be a little bit like her. I think that Maura has been kind of trapped. If you look at the early seasons of Rizzoli & Isles, Maura was an extremely sexual being. She was always the one pushing Jane to date different kinds of men. She was the one much more involved in her romantic life and that sort of withered away a few seasons ago and now, I feel like the women are just so lonely. So I think Helene would be an inspiration to her, really channeling her inner Goddess.”
Jane better go batshit crazy about Maura being kidnapped I want to see her cry and do everything Maura would if she was in her shoes I want her talking to whoever kidnapped Maura and begging that kidnapper to take her instead or giving in to all the kidnapper’s wishes because she can’t risk Maura’s life more than it already is I want her to see Maura being hurt by that kidnapper and I want her to find Maura and kill the son of a bitch who tried to hurt her best friend and her soulmate and I want her to tell Maura what she feels and GADDAMN I JUST WANT JANE TO SHOW AND TELL MAURA SHE LOVES HER AS MUCH AS MAURA LOVES HER BECAUSE IM SO TIRED OF SEEING MAURA BE TAKEN FOR GRANTED MY BABY DESERVES SO MUCH BETTER THAN THIS HELLA CRAPPY TREATMENT SHE’S BEEN GETTING FOR THE PAST FEW SEASONS OK NOW GIVE ME THE NEXT EPISODE
So I took a brief moment to glance at tumblr tonight. Wow. Unrest and disappointment in the Rizzles fandom. I’m not going to comment one way or the other about the recent statements made by one of the R&I showrunners. Instead, my mind goes to the fans. The way I see it, two things can happen from this point.
1) People can jump ship from heartache and anger. Or,
2) We can rise to the occasion and make the Rizzles fandom even better and more active now that the chains of what-if have been removed. We have an answer. Let it be freeing. I don’t know about you, but I don’t need Rizzles to be canon for inspiration. In our works, Jane and Maura are what we make them, and that’s all that matters. So make Rizzles happen where it matters most. I know I will.
