Hatred will never cease by hatred. Never. Hatred can only cease by love.
~ Siddhārtha Gautama, the Buddha
All beings want to be happy, yet so very few know how. The process of forgiveness is one way for us to remember where our deepest happiness lies. When our minds are full of anger and hatred toward others, we need to ask ourselves, “Who is the one suffering from this anger?” In most cases, we will realize that we are in fact the ones who are really suffering. Forgiveness thus actually comes out of the greatest compassion for ourselves. Forgiveness helps us create the conditions for unconditional love, which can dissolve separation and relieve us of our perpetually unresolved outrage.
This is admittedly difficult. It is much more difficult to forgive than not to forgive. National and world political leaders seem to rely on this fact: It is much easier to unite people with a bond of common hatred than it is to unite them with shared love.
Remember, forgiveness does not mean condoning a harmful action or denying injustice or suffering. It should never be confused with being passive toward violation or abuse. What forgiveness is, on the other hand, is an inner relinquishment of our resentment, which is devastating to us in the end. As forgiveness grows within us, it may take any outward form: we may indeed seek to make amends, demand justice, or resolve to be treated better. Or we may find that it’s best to simply leave a situation behind us.
Okay, so I realized I’ve written something like 60 Major Crimes fics since the show started. Most of them have been posted on FFN.
Since many people in the fandom come and go, I thought I’d make a list of all my Major Crimes fics for anyone who might be interested in reading. I am going to list even the ones that are not really good (but I promise to warn you in advance). I will post them according to pairing. Whenever applicable, I will state the relevant season.
The Sounds of Happiness - Season 4. The explanation behind Andy’s bruise in the winter episodes promo pic. Includes Mother!ship.
Romantic - Season 4. Sharon and Andy spend an unforgettable evening together. Recommended.
Staying Alive - Rusty and Andy comfort Sharon after nearly beind shot.
Damsel In Distress - AU. Takes place before The Closer. Sharon and Andy hook up during her FID days. Warning: I received a lot of negative comments about this one. While I understand why some people see this fic as problematic, I would like to explain that this story takes place during a timeframe when Andy was considered a chauvinistic prick and before he has developed respect for Sharon. Keep that in mind while reading this.
Stuck Together - M rated. Multichapter. Sharon runs into a series of unfortunate events in her life, which changes her relationship with Andy. Trigger warning for sexual assault. Not one of my recommended stories.
Freaked Out -
Based on one of the season 4 promos. Rusty gives Sharon several reaosns to freak out.
Heros Never Sleep - After a very stressful day at work, Sharon receives a letter that changes her mood.
Spring Affair - Rusty reflects on some strange new behaviors and habits Sharon has recently developed and reaches one important conclusion (+Shandy).
Becoming A Family - A compilation of mini-fics written for prompts given to me on Tumblr and Facebook during the hiatus. I arranged them in an order that made sense, even though technically, they are not related, they are all about the stages of becoming a family (+Shandy).
The Way Back Home - A tragic event from Sharon’s past resurfaces when she and Rusty are cleaning her parents’ attic. Together, they have to deal with the people in their lives who abandoned them. Read trigger warning.
So, this entire story played out in my head last night as I tried to go to sleep after this episode (who could sleep after that???), and I thought it would just live in my head, but alas, it found a way out. This is an add-on to 5x10.
What happened when Sharon and Andy reconnected after that terrifying explosion and difficult case?
Rest in Peace, Sharon Marie Tate // January 24, 1943 - August 9, 1969 // “I’d like to be a fairy princess - a little golden doll with gossamer wings, in a voile dress, adorned with bright, shiny things. I see that as something totally pure and beautiful. Everything that’s realistic has some sort of ugliness in it. Even a flower is ugly when it wilts, a bird when it seeks its prey, the ocean when it becomes
violent. I’m very sensitive to ugly situations. I’m quick to read
people, and I pick up if someone’s reacting to me as just a sexy blond. At times like that, I freeze. I can be very alone at a party, on the
set, or in general, if I’m not in harmony with things around me.”
