I’ve often said that when you start looking into the backgrounds of the mainstream Black actresses in Hollywood, you will find a set of credentials that, to me, highlight the Black Tax and how it may be uniquely applied to Black women who wish to act. Considering the percentage of the country in general who has a degree and the backgrounds of other actors, you cannot convince me it is a coincidence that this much excellence and education was required of Black women in particular, just to be given the opportunity to fight for a chance.

That being said… i’d like to celebrate these women.

I like to imagine Barba having swallow-shaped wings and preening them incessantly, so they’re always tidy and glossy and beautiful. He uses them to be dramatic and sassy, but one was broken a while back and didn’t heal properly, so he can’t fly very well and this is a source of insecurity that he puts a lot of effort into hiding.

-OR-

With wings and the name “Rafael,” I can’t help but be reminded of:

“And again the Lord said to Raphael: ‘Bind Azazel hand and foot, and cast him into the darkness …”

Angelic!SVU AU: Archangel Rafael defends victims in a heavenly court and convicts rapists to hell while God is the judge, but he just sits there rolling his eyes at this shit.
