so, thanks to @jakelovesamy for the prompt, and to her and @elsaclack for all of the help!! i’m only including the prompt because it seems important that y’all all know that this started as a creepy cabin drabble. (title is from “let it snow” bc yes i Obviously wrote a christmas fic in mid-june)
99. “We’re in an abandoned lodge in the middle of nowhere. Sure, you’re totally right, nothing bad could ever happen here.”
Jake Peralta has never enjoyed the outdoors. Sure, that one Cub Scouts camping trip in first grade was pretty fun, but that was mostly because his dad was Assistant Scoutmaster that year, and Jake got to stay up until the sun started to rise, making s’mores with Charlie Daniels and his brother. Adult Jake Peralta prefers snow plows, massage chairs, modern insulation, and easy-access delivery food.
Which makes the fact that he agreed to spend Christmas in a cabin in the middle of nowhere in upstate New York with his new wife’s family a remarkable testament to just how much he loves said new wife.
Of course, the Santiagos are a remarkably awesome bunch of people. Victor warmed up to him - finally - when Jake told the Santiagos about his intentions to marry Amy. He showed them the ring, and Victor decided that anyone who had managed to save up that much money with a credit score below 200 was plenty tenacious enough to be a Santiago. Her brothers, meanwhile, had warmed to him as soon as they learned how much he loved basketball and good cop movies (Luis once told him that there were so many Santiago brothers it wasn’t even that noticeable when they picked up a few extra along the way. Jake had never felt more thrilled to be so entirely a part of something).
Even with all that awesome, being snowed in with all of the Santiagos in an eight-bedroom “cabin” (it’s definitely way too large for that title, and yet still somehow too small for all seven brothers, their spouses, and the kids) for four days over Christmas was not his idea of a dream vacation. Jake has no idea exactly how many nieces and nephews he now has, but he knows that there are at least twenty children that made it to the cabin ranging from scarily-new infants to surly teenagers, and they all call him Tio Jake with an excitement that warms his heart.
So, now that Skam is over (😭😭😭) my dash has been slowly but surely dying…and I don’t like it.
I need more active people to follow, so if you’re in any of the following fandoms or blog about any of the things on the list (or if you think I’d like your blog based on what I’ve put on it) just like this post (and reblog if you want to boost this and help me out) and I can check you out!
Riverdale (I’m not sure about continuing the show when the next season starts but I’ll add it anyway)
DC or Marvel Shows/Movies
Pretty much any LGBT+/Queer Actors/Singers/Shows/Movies
Teen Wolf (again, I don’t know if I’m gonna be watching it but I’m adding it anyway)
How To Get Away With Murder
You don’t have to follow me back if I follow you but it would be cool to gain some new mutuals while increasing the activity on my dash!
Thanks a bunch! (p.s if we’re already mutuals it would be swell if you could reblog this as well to get the word out 💗)
