My Endless List of OTPs (in no particular order)

Danny and Mindy

 I love you. Mindy I love you. I wanna to be with you.  Look at me, I want to be with you.

I think the reason that I tell everyone about us is because I want it to be real. And the more real it seems, the less likely it is that it can all get taken away from me.  

It’s real. 





New promo for 302!! Thanks grelca for spending an hour at a truckstop in Mississippi trying to get it for us!!

This is SUPER funny and I laughed out loud at my workplace, but it also makes me crazy sad, thinking back to dating white guys/non-black POCs and the worry and stress and apprehension involved in meeting the parents because of racism/black hate. It also reminded me of the time I as unasked to be a bridesmaid because the groom’s family “just wouldn’t understand” me being up there/in the pictures, so anyway, yeah, this is funny, but it’s also a shitty-ass reality for a lot of black/brown folks dating, and even just befriending, out here interracially, hardee-har-har.

I think that’s the beauty of it, for me. Mindy has always been good at speaking from her own perspective, and being thought to be the ‘cleaning lady’ is her reality too. Yeah, she’s mining it for comedy because that’s the show (and who she is), but I bet the heart of this episode will be in Mindy’s real, justifiable fear that she won’t be accepted.


I love this town. And when you love something, you don’t threatened it, you don’t punish it. You fight for it. You take care of it. You put it first. As your City Counselor, I will make sure that no one takes advantage of Pawnee. If I seem too passionate, it’s because I care. If I come on strong, it’s because I feel strongly. And if I push too hard, it’s because things aren’t moving fast enough. This is my home, you are my family, and I promise you, I’m not going anywhere.”
