Disappointing Pictures

Great introduction to the fic. It set off alarm bells for me wondering what’s happened, but it didn’t drag on for long until the situation steadily revealed itself.

You were descriptive in her actions that demonstrated how she was feeling instead of simply stating, “She was nervous.” I think it fleshes out your fic and provides a certain sophistication to it.

Jake’s entrance was priceless. I adore the ‘goofy grin’, and that you incorporated some of his teasing and silliness before he slips into reassurance with a subtle sappiness in the form of playing with her hand.

Oh, hey, thank you! I don’t think I’ve ever gotten such detailed feedback on Tumblr, what a nice surprise! ♥

Thank you! I try not to be like “LOOK AT ALL THIS RESEARCH” in the body of the fic itself, but I’m not sure I avoided that here. But then, I don’t think I could have, haha.

While you clearly did your research, I don’t think it screamed it in any way! :)

kasuchi replied to your post “sitcomathonnnnn! entries! TALKING! Or, hey gurl let’s talk about the sitcomathon entries because we can!”

both of you b99 ones and your b99/arrow xover (not sitcomathon i know) were so great. The handholding one was so nice; it was just really quiet.

Aw, thank you! It’s fun to try something different sometimes (and nervewracking!)

I really liked yours as well - very very detailed and researched.

sitcomathonnnnn! entries! TALKING! Or, hey gurl let's talk about the sitcomathon entries because we can!

Sure! Whatcha wanna talk about! :) Other than how awesome they all were. :)

I love Winston so much, and I clearly love cats, so when I saw this as a possibility for a treat, I jumped on it faster than a cat on yarn.

My assignment for sitcomathon, written for annakovsky. I was terrified, simply terrified, when I read that email. Why? annakovsky and I don’t really know each other, but we have mutual friends. And her The Failure of Einstein’s Universe (TBBT, Penny/Sheldon) actually got me into sitcom fandom in the first place. So… not to make you uncomfortable or anything… but I had to admit that. (Just think of Amy’s or Jake’s crush on Holt, and we’re good to go.)

I wanted this fic to be as perfect as possible and tied myself up in knots for a couple weeks. But, as I have much more calm friends about who could talk me down and help me brainstorm, I managed to get it done, and have it be something I was even proud of. 

35, Amy Santiago, Jake Peralta

Amy’s hands are trembling. She doesn’t know why, she’s done this before, she’s done this a thousand times, but for some reason she can’t control her nerves. Maybe it’s Judge Norton’s flat stare, her painted on lips and eyebrows, her gravelly voice. She’s never had to testify in her courtroom before, and Boyle’s cheerful, “Good luck, you’ll need it!” as she left the station hadn’t helped matters at all.

She starts to drum her fingernails, bitten back to the quick, on her trouser leg as she waits to be called. She wants to glance at the clock again, but she’s already done that an embarrassing number of times.

The bench moves a little, and before she can react, Jake is sliding in next to her. “Heey, Santiago.”

“What are you doing here?” she whispers at him. “Did you have to testify today, too?”

“Nope!” he tells her with a goofy grin. “And thank god, I had to testify in front of Nana Norton once and…” He shudders dramatically. “I’m just here for moral support.”

"I…"

“‘Cause you’re gonna need it. Whoo, man, she’s brutal.”

Amy nudges him. “Some moral support!”

He grins. “That’s what partners are for, right?” But then he slips his palm into her trembling one. It’s so warm and comforting, and the opposite of what she expects that she just lets her palm stay there, limp in his enclosing fingers.

“Right,” she says, quietly. Too quietly.

"You’re going to be fine.” As he speaks, he traces gentle circles with his thumb. “She’s a bit scary, but she’s fair. You followed procedure and filed all the correct paperwork.”

“I always do.”

“You see there? Be that certain and Ol’ Norton will have nothing to find fault with.”

She nods. And he stays there, holding her hand quite literally, all the way until the bailiff comes to get her.
