topping off

brooklyn nine nine is really good to us when it comes to friendships, because every character has such unique friendships and bonding scenes with the others but i dont think we talk about rosas and charles friendship enough because damn:

- we start the show with charles being head over heels for rosa, who is clearly not interested

- rosa tells him, very clearly, that she thinks hes sweet and really likes him as a friend but shes not interested in dating him

- it takes charles some time to get over her, but he does!! apologizes for being weird and making her uncomfortable!! and they go on having an incredibly strong and close friendship!!

- at one point charles even takes a bullet for her, which could have led to the whole “just give him a chance” trope but nope b99 doesnt do that bs, they talk it out and they never end up together

- they are so close that charles even helps rosas bf to plan for her birthday because he knows her so well!! she loves it!!

- rosa asks charles to be her bridesmaid because they are so close and she knows charles would love that!! he does!!

- charles plans her the best bachelorette party and rosa absolutely loves it!! she gets so excited she literally lifts charles up from the floor??

- sometimes between working cases they go to have foot massages together?? that was so cute??

- charles helps rosa text her boyfriend?? because shes not that great at pickup lines?? how cute??

- the writers could have easily opted to go with the “less attractive man falls for his way hotter coworker whos not interested but ends up giving him a chance because he is nice (and wont stop pestering her)” trope but instead we got this beautiful beautiful brotp

Explain your ideal first date vs your fantasy date!

Well my ideal first date would start with us at a restaurant. He’d forget his wallet but I’d pay for him. Then he’d take me to the theater to see a play. He’d ask me to chose and I’d go with a horror play. Some crazy shit would happen and his evil alter ego would try to keep me forever but them he’d show up and then they’d fight. The evil one would pull a gun but then I’d get it and I’d have to shoot one but I don’t know which is which. I’d shoot one and then other one would reassure me and take me to an ice cream parlor. I’d worry for a second that I had picked the wrong one but it turns out I picked the right one and everything is okay and he’d ask if I want to go out again sometime. Just something vanilla you know?

My fantasy date on the other hand would probably start off the same. We’d be at a nice restaurant and he’d forget his wallet but this time I wouldn’t pay so the chef would get mad and kidnap us. We’d be in the car but my date would try to hit him with a tire iron but we’d crash and end up in the desert. We’d walk a little and see a road but also a weird glowy artifact. He’d go see what the artifact was about but then aliens would abduct us! He’d get pulled into the darkness and probed and stuff and come back covered in…something. They’d send us back to earth and we’d try to take the road but suddenly these men in black would appear and put these weird masks on our faces to make us forget everything we saw. So yeah best fantasy date tbh

but thank you, you managed to cheer me up a lil c:

Things I Love About the Way They’re Handling Alex Coming Out:

  • she didn’t “always know”
  • she’s an established adult, rather than a teen or young adult in the socially acceptable ~identity searching~ phase
  • the story is apparently being managed by lgb+ people (!! apparently a gay man and a lesbian I think? so we’re in good hands)
  • the Coming Out story happened alongside/following the introduction of a character who was stable & at peace with her identity, so we got both!
  • a white lesbian is following in the footsteps of & taking cues & advice from a lesbian of colour
  • the central relationship around which this is built, and currently the only ‘viable’ one, is interracial
  • Alex experiences heteronormativity & possibly internalised homophobia, rather than existing in a world where both have miraculously disappeared
  • I find the heteronormativity part especially interesting, personally, because as someone who hasn’t faced a great deal of aggressive phobia personally in my life (other than through politics), it’s still a challenge 
  • Part of my interest in this was she didn’t express much if any direct concern or fear about what others might think, it was a very introspection-centric coming out story.
  • & even though she kinda knows it’ll all be okay and people will love her anyway and she’s relatively confident in herself, she’s still kinda scared and shy about it; it’s not one or the other and I found that really authentic to my experience
