i will literally never forget the watching the season four premiere of the office like we spent a whole summer agonizing over whether or not jim and pam were FINALLY dating and then in the beginning my brother actually threw a pillow at the tv when it looked like they weren’t together and then they kISSED and i swear to god my whole family started screaming and hugging like we woke up my three year old sister lmao and my friend called me during the commercial break so we could yell about it and then we stayed on the line so we could scream every time they did anything like when they held hands we hit decibels that weren’t audible to humans and to this day i have never seen my brother literally flail about something the way he did on that fateful night in 2007
andrew goes on to play exy professionally because it’s all he knows. it’s a borrowed obsession and he knows neil will play pro until he physically can’t anymore. so he joins a professional team, and he keeps playing. for years. until eventually he figures out what he wants to do with his life
he wants to work with kids. he wants to help vulnerable kids because no one ever helped him. so he retires and he becomes a social worker and for probably the first time in his life he has a passion. something he loves doing, that makes him feel good. something that makes him feel like he has a place in the world

Sorry, I just learned that apparently the entire Leverage fandom doesn’t like/hates him and believes that the show should be all about dat OT3 and I’m just… I don’t understand it. I honestly don’t understand how people could be so blind to his contributions and character development. And for goodness sake, he’s the dad of that OT3 you ship so much!
you could kick my ass without breaking a sweat and I respect that
when i was in college i would kick box with this guy who was literally twice my size - 6′5″ and 280 pounds - and he always said he loved grappling because he could just sit on his opponent and they’d tap out. so i was like okay if you take me to the ground while we box then i’ll grapple with you.
the first (and last) time he took me to the ground, i wiggled my way around and was so damn slippery that it took him a solid 10 minutes to get me to tap out.
afterward, i was ready for round 2 and he was so out of breath he had to sit down and lament that he never wanted to grapple again in his life.
so like the advantage of being tiny is that i probably can’t beat up everyone i meet, but i can definitely wear you out and then run away without breaking a sweat.
