A Story of Now Chapter 3, a rookie blue fanfic | FanFiction

A Story of Now, Chapter Three:

At first, when she hears her name being called out Gail thinks she’s imagined it; such is the state of her brain after much tequila, four hours’ sleep and two classes. Then she hears it again. Scanning the crowds of students scattered across the broad stretch of green grass, making the most of the spring sun, she spots Holly, a human island in a sea of text books, waving at her.” 

you know, i remember experimenting as a kid to see if i could come up with a new color (nope, just a grey/brown mess) or invent a new language (couldn't, thought it was universal, imagine my surprise at learning about klingon! dothraki! esperanto even!) or later, trying to cook (well, i manage to feed myself... that's something, right?), so then when i'm reading your experiment i'm just like... where is the flaw??? but really i wasn't expecting any tbh ;) Experiment away! I'm reading, enchanted

I made a muddy browny purple once…

Thank you!

Hey, thanks. And No problem about the question- I do mention it in later parts of the story, but not yet, I realise.  Gail is supposed to be nineteen, turning twenty in the story, and Holly … about twenty-two? Not sure it works with the logic of their age difference in RB, but that’s all just guess work anyway, I guess.

Chapter Two: A Story of Now:

And because for every battle she fights with her mother, there is always a handful she cannot take up.  Because if she did take up every one placed before her, she’d never have time for anything else.”

Broad City all the way, yo.
Why aren’t you watching it?

I kind of loved how they made it that Gail, arguably one of the more upper middle class of the rookies, actually really knew what it mean to dress the part of ‘low rent’prostitute, compared to others, down to the grungy zip-up sweater and the panda eyeliner. Hilarious.

This … is an experiment.

Gail already knows she needs a life plan— as a matter of urgency. Now she’s also starting to think she might need some new friends.”

A Gail/Holly story. Written in response to a reader’s prompt: If Gail had got her wish from ‘It Has Been a … Day’ and met Holly when she was younger. In this Gail is nineteen, on the threshold, deciding, what she wants, what direction her life should take, and which people she wants to take on that journey.

Cloudburst, 2013

A film with Olympia Dukakis and Brenda Fricker as hilarious, codgery, aging lovers going on the run to get married before one of them is put in a home? Why haven’t I seen this already?

What Women Watch on TV

Apparently men are too dumb to ‘get’ the TV women like, according to this very odd article that also calls Game of Thrones a Sci Fi show:

On the broadcast front, Scandal and ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy dominate the landscape alongside football and the music competition juggernauts NBC’s The Voice and Fox’s American Idol, as well as CBS’ ubiquitous The Big Bang Theory. Wintsch says she thinks the scripted series that hit with women manage to convey nuances men don’t necessarily get. “I feel like my husband watches [Pope] and his only comment every weekend is, ‘She’s such a slut,’” Wintsch says. “And I watch it and I think ‘She’s so broken, she’s so flawed, and that’s why she’s looking for love with these men.’”

Geek Speaks: Women who Work in Television

Geek Speaks: The Women who Make Television

Organised by Henry Jenkins, a media academic. Jenkin was one of the first scholars to write about television audiences and frame fans as creative, imaginative and active audiences, rather than brainless, obsessive fanatics. 

Now the USC Professor is organing an ongoing panel series, Geek Speaks.

Why this one on women who work in television was important, according to Jenkins:

"We thought it was a key moment of transition, seeing shows like ‘Scandal’ and ‘Orange is the New Black’ and countless other shows which have sort of put female authorship on the horizon," said Jenkins. "On the one hand, there’s still an uphill battle to be fought. Still, the statistics are showing women face more challenges to break into the industry, that they’re not anywhere near 50 percent of the creative talent behind the camera. On the other hand, there’s a critical mass of women now in creative roles that weren’t there five years ago, ten years ago. And so it’s a moment to celebrate and a moment to define the battlefield for the next round of the struggle."

Love and Justice, Peter Stebbings, 2008 (short)

Some naughty uploaded this film onto You Tube recently. It’s Charlotte Sullivan and her husband Peter Stebbings in his short film Love and Justice.

I’ve seen a clip before, but I haven’t watched the whole thing yet. I thought the Rookie Blue fans might wanna if they haven’t already? It’s at just over 20mins long.
