And how his mother ran away and how another parent is never mentioned and how Grif supported himself and his little sister for who knows how long.
And how Grif is uber protective of his sister not just because of some big brother thing but because she’s either barely a legal adult or a minor and she has sex with people significantly older than her.
Can we talk about how Grif got drafted while he had a dependent in high school and how he tried his absolute hardest to get kicked out so he could go home
Can we talk about his inability to hold grudges against people and how Tucker ran him over with a tank but he never brought it up again. Or how at his core he trusts his teammates to have his back even with how many times hes been shot and threatened and generally smacked around.
How about the fact that he became a sergeant over Simmons despite his professed apathy. How about the fact that his friendship with Simmons is so strong and important and well-worn and that they are so attached at the hip that they were going to be executed together despite the fact that Grif was the only one that did anything wrong.
Can we talk about the fact that Grif has survived some of the most devastating and ridiculous injuries in the show and that he has apparently survived solely because of luck and his own hearty constitution
Talk to me about how he went over the edge at the end of season 8 and purposefully made his scream get fainter and taper off like he was actually falling when he was dangling a few feet below the edge. He’s such an asshole
And can we talk about how he jumped on the meta’s back (a fucking huge growly former-freelancer) and stole his huge ass gun knife off his back? Or how he ran down Wash through a wall?
How about how he can pilot pretty much anything an is good enough at it that the others immediately and silently decide hes the most obvious option to fly a stolen Pelican to the battle
How about how he probably still has the speed unit installed. I wanna see where that goes.
And how he’s so unaggressive and lazy that Omega can’t budge him into any kind of aggression besides an aggressive nap
Tell me about his new squad and the fact that hes training them for extraction and stealth and being clever
Please, please talk to me about Minor Junior Private Dexter Grif, Negative First Class
When I was first learning how to write, my brother called me into the bathroom to show me something. He had somehow managed to poop the letter “P. He looked me in the eye and told me "I did it for you.”
Mom: Hey, remember that time in junior high when you came out of school all excited about some new interest, got in the car, and talked non-stop without looking up or breathing for ten minutes before the person in the driver’s seat cleared their throat and you looked over and realized you had gotten in someone else’s car?
Mom: In retrospect we really should have caught this whole Autism thing sooner, shouldn’t we.
So my youngest brother is unemployed, has a criminal record, and is currently facing a drug charge.
He smokes weed in my dads apartment every day, all day.
I am a full time student struggling to support myself and pay for my own education. I have credit card debt that is ruining my credit because my dad ran up my credit cards and doesn’t understand why I can’t afford to pay them off.
He happens to be at my house right now and I went to light up half a joint, because I had an exhausting fucking day taking care of an elderly lady who has a rare form of dementia and wanted to decompress and unwind after work.
My dad gets mad and says that I’m stupid for smoking and starts lecturing me about it and then bitches about how I lit it up next to him.
Why is it that my brother doesn’t get any backlash for it and I get ridiculed? My entire family thinks I’m a drug addict and yet I have no criminal record, no history of drug abuse, I am an honor roll student and take 4 classes every 11 weeks, I struggle to pay the bills because I can’t find any employers to work with my school schedule and yet I still manage to pay everything in order for me to live day to day. I am stuck with credit card debt from my dad, he left me in a house he bought to live with his ex girlfriend, who is fucking lazy and doesn’t pay anything and yet makes $18 an hour, I have to supply the food in my house, and pay the electric bill while paying for college and making sure I have gas and car insurance in order for me to get to class.
And after all of this bullshit, I get bitched at because I wanna smoke a joint?
So my brother who is a complete fuck up doesn’t get shit for it, but I get accused of being a drug addict for smoking a little pot…
I don’t fucking understand my family. I am the only person in my family who is making a life for themselves and yet I get the most bullshit.
This is so fucking exhausting… I honesty don’t know how much more of this I can take.
