tv shows: dancing on the edge

Morning After Confessional.

Summary: Following a TV marathon, your best friend wakes up groggy… and with a confession to make. 

Pairing: Lin-Manuel Miranda x Reader 

Prompt: I got the entire “Lin and reader watching crappy reality TV” request from anonymous here and then incorporated prompt #199 from @otpisms as well to make it all well-rounded and fluffy. Just how I like ‘em. 

Words: 2,615 

Warnings: Mild cursing. 100% fluff. 

Enjoy! 

(Another shoutout to @hamilbye for reading this for me again. You’re the best, Nat. My favorite person. Seeing as this trope is one of your faves, this is dedicated to you.)


No!” You screamed, covering your face with your blanket, letting only your squinted eyes see the television screen. Next to you, Lin only laughed, remarking on the female heroine’s actions on screen. You glanced over at him and rolled your eyes.

“How are you not freaked out by this?” You questioned him, your eyes narrowing as you watched the light from the television dance over his facial features.

He looked over at you, “(Y/N), you invited me over for a horror movie marathon. This is entirely your fault if you’re scared.”

“Yeah, but I didn’t think you’d enjoy the horror movies.” You remarked back, almost grumbling under your breath.

“It’s cinematic mastery at its best – controlling the human psyche, predicting your next reaction. What’s not to love?”

Why Iris matters to me

There’s a reason Iris and Westallen are so important to me. As a Black girl, I will naturally gravitate to the person who represents me on-screen. I like seeing Black women get more visibility, more room to play different kinds of roles, and in fact, shine in central roles instead of being in the periphery. I am nearly 30 years old and it’s only in the last decade that TV seems to have woken up and realized that Black women can be leads, can be love interests who are cared for and adored, can be both action heroes and soft and feminine, can be independent and vulnerable at the same time.

Before Iris, there were two Black female leads I absolutely loved but who didn’t always get the love and respect they deserved from fans or even the show. Joss Carter (Taraji P. Henson), and Lacey Porter (Kylie Bunbury).

Detective Joss Carter, Person of Interest (CBS)

To me, it seemed pretty obvious that Carter, an attractive older woman would be a natural love interest for the lead character, John Reese. They had great chemistry together, and their interactions would range from the downright hilarious to the deep, solemn and intimate – and this was all as friends. On any other show featuring an exasperated detective working with an unorthodox man in a suit, these two would have been clear endgame (Mentalist, Castle, Lucifer), but POI producers claimed that romance didn’t really fit this kind of show. I took that at face value, even as lost romances drove both the male leads in the show. A ship featuring the two men sprang up, and I saw that phenomenon in action (slash shipping as a way of circumventing the black female lead). But for the most part, the two shipping fandoms actually coexisted peacefully.

So the show kept teasing, kept having them flirt, kept having this thing dance right to the edge of romance, without ever going there. Jim Caviezel, though, definitely played his character Reese, as if he was in love with Carter. To the point that he initiated an unscripted kiss in one of their final scenes together. Some parts of the TV audience exploded with indignance: where the heck did that kiss come from??, they bellowed. They had never seen anything remotely romantic between the two characters ever. Either they had been blind, or they had simply never wanted to see it. This, like Sleepy Hollow, also suffered from the “Can’t men and women just be friends? They are my brotp. So tired of romance in every show.” complaints.

Only after Carter died did they explicitly refer to her as someone John Reese was in love with. Another lost love to add to his angst. If only he had not been so hesitant (he, or you POI writers?). And only after Carter died did the show seemingly change its mind about romance, having a full-blown romance between two of the main female leads. But hey, that’s none of my business.

Let me say though, that Carter was very well written during her tenure on the show. I grew to like her more and more over the seasons. I started off pretty ambivalent, but Taraji won me over. Even her relationship with Reese, defined only as “whatever this is” was a joy to watch. She was an important member of the team, with relationships with all the other team members, plus her own nemesis later (not a whole lot of her home life but still). But even though POI was brave and innovative in other ways, it always seemed a bit too scared to go there with Carter and Reese. Her death was an ignominious end to a fantastic character, was done just for shock value, and turned a good number of fans off the show for good. Also, the show had always been a hybrid sci-fi/police procedural but losing Carter upset that balance, and the sci-fi aspects became more prevalent, alienating other viewers. The show’s ratings never recovered.

Lacey Porter, Twisted (ABC Family)

Lacey Porter was a lot like Veronica Lodge in Riverdale: a spoiled princess with a huge heart and a complicated home life. She was a third of Twisted’s main trio of erstwhile friends, which also included reformed juvenile killer, Danny Desai (Avan Jogia), and earnest loner, Jo (Maddie Hassen). The show was supposed to join Pretty Little Liars as an ABC family guilty pleasure. But inconsistent storytelling (they got a new writing team between the first and second halves of season one, leading to a significant drop in quality) was it’s main downfall.

The first half of the season did get a couple of things right. The suspense was there - did Danny really murder his Aunt as a child, or was he covering up for someone? And what about the fact that a girl died just as he got out of juvie and slinked back in town? It was great. The other stroke of genius? Danny and Lacey. Danny had Barry Allen levels of thirst when he saw Lacey again for the first time in 5 years. Like he drank her in every single time he saw her (btw, in real life this can be creepy as heck, but on TV, well).
Anyway, the two actors had amazing chemistry, and fell in love head first, with Lacey moving from suspicion and wariness to total conviction that Danny was innocent.

In the second half of the season, the new writers broke Danny and Lacey up, and #PoorJo’s unrequited crush on Danny was finally… requited. “It’s always been you.” He says to her, which made little to no sense. Danny and Lacey had heat. Danny and Jo reminded me of custard.

The show threw away one of its strongest assets. An overall mess of a second half spelled doom for the show and it was gone with a whimper. But for a while, Twisted had given us an interracial relationship featuring two POC, and given it time and attention. Kylie made Lacey as lovable as Camila makes Veronica, but unlike Veronica, we didn’t get to see her home life very often either. We had an entire episode about her family that took place at her younger sister’s birthday party. And the show didn’t even bother to cast a girl to play the sister. Lol. I mean, come on. Try. In contrast, we saw Danny and Jo’s home lives in every episode.

Iris West, The Flash (CW)

Now back to Iris. The difference between these shows and the Flash, is that the latter has been clear from Day One, that Iris is the love of Barry’s life. Unlike POI, they actually took the plunge, and unlike Twisted, they have stayed consistent throughout about their endgame. You can’t know what it means to see this woman be earnestly and wholeheartedly loved like this, by a superhero. She’s the Lois to his Superman, and it’s not a role I had ever ever imagined I would see a Black woman in.

It’s not surprising that there are haters. There was a predictable whitelash. Iris, like many Black and female characters, was under increased scrutiny at every turn, and many times criticism turned into vitriol. And although crackshipping is all over the show (Cisco x Peekaboo ♡), only SB was insidious enough to replace Iris in her own narrative with the closest white girl.The ship was crowned before anyone had seen the GG and DP act opposite each other, on the show or even in the first trailer. But it was formed after Candice Patton was cast as Iris. It pained me to think that there were people who were so repulsed by this beautiful Black woman that they would make up a ship with literally nothing to go on and then make so much noise about it, that people began to think it was real. I sometimes see posts saying that they ship SB out of love for them, and not hate for Iris. Some joined the Flash fandom years after the premiere and can claim ignorance. But, regardless of whenever they joined, the beginnings of the ship were rooted in anti-black racism, and I don’t think 3 years has been enough to actually distance it from that. I’m a fan of live and let live because there will always be a diversity of opinions, but we can’t be disingenuous while we are at it.

Now, the writing on this show is nowhere near POI quality, and I have said a lot in other posts. The only thing I will point our here is that in Season 1, because Iris didn’t know The Flash’s identity, the writers had to construct an entire world just for her (CCPN). That season, we saw journalism progress from a class project, into a hobby, into a genuine interest and then flower into a passion. Without CCPN, Iris would barely have been in the show since it mostly took place in STAR Labs, and the Police station.

Since then, it seems that because Iris is in the know, the writers aren’t working as hard to build her own world around her, which is sad. I’m glad she is more visible, and I am glad that she and Barry have the romance to end all romances (he proposed twice!!!), but I hope that the writers will remember next season that Iris’ career matters too. It’s part of that representation that we value so much. Who are the major black journalists on scripted TV? I can’t think of any off the top of my head. There is still a lot of story to tell with respect to Iris’ professional and even social lives.

So, yes, I have experienced some fandom foolishness around Black women. I have seen writers give their Black female characters half-baked story lines compared to some of their white counterparts. I have seen shows underestimate the draw of these Black women to their own detriment (looking at you, POI and Sleepy Hollow). Iris West, for all the shortcomings in her writing, sits in that TV Black Girl Hall of Fame, for being a demonstration that black girls can and should be adored, loved, uplifted and protected.

Questions Answered

Title: Question Answered

 Prompt: @tangle-of-ivy: You get thrown into TV land along with the boys! At first you stay with them, but soon you start getting placed in separate channels. Gabe is usually there too.  ***I took out the rest of the request because of spoilers ;p

 Pairing: Gabriel x Female!Reader

 Summary: The boys hated TV Land, when Gabriel threw them in…but you had a different experience.  

 Warnings: Language.

To say this was a weird day was an understatement.  First off, you were stuck in some random TV Land special, curtesy of your local Trickster, the gorgeous blonde haired man who loved to screw with you and your brothers. Secondly, you got to watch your brother fanboy over being in his favorite TV show…but the weirdest part was what came after.

You registered that the ‘channel’ had changed.  You looked around to find yourself in the middle of a dance floor, people sitting at tables around the edge.  There were couples dressed up in nice clothes standing around you. “Sam?  Dean?”  

You called out, but you couldn’t see them.  “Don’t worry sweet cheeks, you’re safe here.”

Hello, Not sure if this is of interest, but here's a recent review of Grantchester from my local paper in Australia. We are 1 episode behind. "This was one of my standout shows of last year. Which is strange, because, at under 60, I'm not exactly their target demo. Still it had an edge to it that I love, thanks to James Norton's Reverend Sidney Chambers. Tonight he's swing dancing at the local pub with his beloved (swoon), but trouble's brewing." Claire Rigden Sunday Mail TV Guide

Thank you so much! Of course we are always interested in reviews of Grantchester and in anything related to our beloved Sidney Chambers. I can assure you, a lot of Grantchester fans are under 60! That’s not surprise, because James Norton is undeniably appealing no matter how old you are, the characters are interesting, the drama is riveting, the cast is brilliant.  And a *swoon* is always certain with the dancing vicar…

The Outsiders Preference: How They Dance With You...

Requested by anon

Darry: 

You didn’t know Darry could dance until he did. It was intimate and oddly seductive in its manner, but not obscene. You loved dancing with him. The closeness it brought the two of you. 

Two-Bit:

Drunk and Silly, that’s how you and Two-bit preferred to dance. It was always in the privacy of your own room or his, and it was always ridiculous in how it looked, but it was fun and relaxing and Two-Bit was just the person to do that with. 

Ponyboy:

He’d usually be cooking breakfast when it happened. The others still asleep or not really bothered at all and he’d swing you around the little kitchen and something would get knocked over…but you enjoyed it and it brought you some peaceful moments with him.

Johnny:

Johnny needed to smile and you knew that. So you’d always drag him into some silly little dance when you saw him frowning. It gave you the opportunity to help him in your own way and watch him smile properly. 

Dally:

Dally had always been a bit rough around the edges and bit crude, so it wasn’t really any surprise that dancing with him was intimate and sexual in every single way…not that you minded of course. 

Sodapop:

Soda was a sweetheart, everyone knew he was a sweetheart and so spending time with him, dancing with him, hugging him…it was all reminiscent of those old romance movies you’d seen on the television. Slow, gentle, tender. 

Steve: 

Steve was stupid. He was an idiot and a show off and dancing with him was usually a public thing that made you blush and wish you weren’t having such a good time acting like an idiot with him. But it never failed to make you smile and perhaps that’s what matters…

You’ve been asking for death for years.

But when he knocks on your door,

Sits on your couch like you are on a tv talk show and he,

Is the surprise guest

You panic.

Death looks you in the face and says

“Kiss me.”.

“No” you say.

“Kiss me” he says.

So you do.

You pull back.

“Again, softer this time. More gentle. Think about the movement of your lips like they are a pen stroke and try not to cover up your mistakes.”

“This,” he says, “is what it is like to dance on the edge. Do a cell block tango on your lifeline and pray that tumor is not terminal. Like it is not out to get you. Like it does not creep into your mind and into your dreams like the ghost of all the bridges you have burned. Pretend it’s a joke. Laugh like it is as I dip you slowly into slumber, and pretend that it doesn’t scare you.”
