First of all, <3 to whoever cared enough to ask this. You are lovely.
Writing The Door came after binge-watching all of s1 and up to The Desert in the space of about a week, and catching up with real time just before the end of the hiatus (I know, very lucky, I didn’t have long to wait). So I got to see the whole build-up of the M/D relationship all in one fabulous blur, and when Be Cool aired and that happened, I couldn’t get the thought out of my mind that Danny was losing so much in doing what he did. How not that long ago he’d gone out of his way to keep his distance, and how that must’ve felt now, being on the outside where he once would’ve wanted to be.
I dunno, I look back and get a bit cringey when I read previous work, but I do like one line: But the minute you let a chink of light through the shutters, you’re awake, you’re seeing in technicolour.
Hope that was vaguely interesting! Thanks for asking, anon :)

This is a fantastic question. And as always I’ll throw my weird notions down, but I’d love to hear other voices on the topic. I’m coming at this from the point of view of a person who has been in a relationship with the same person for 15+ years, and my experiences are largely coloured by that. Other folks may have more to add.
I actually think a lot of their individual growth will be about their growth as a couple. Now don’t get me wrong, being in a couple should never erase your individual goals, but if you’re “all in” you will also be dedicating your time and energy to teamwork as well. In fact, teamwork is pretty much exactly how I’d put it. You have two different jobs that contribute to the same goal and in order to get there you’ve both gotta hit your marks and have respect for the effort of the other person. So…

It's 2014!”Richie nodded solemnly. “It's 2014.”Danny read a sign above the bar out loud. “Human hockey pucks. What are human hockey pucks?”“It's that thing where,” Ramon began.Richie cut him off. “Don't tell him. He doesn't want to know. Danny, you don't want to know.”“Okay.” Ramon smiled and took off into the crowd.
Thanks for asking about this one, no one ever reads it!
ANYWAY… This sprung from a conversation with lamuella on the ride back from work one day. I love Richie and the first line in this fic was a great line originally in sides that didn’t make it to screen, so I kinda wanted to pursue that. I mentioned it and lamuella said something about Stefon and how if I was setting it in a nightclub it had to be New York’s hottest club. It grew from there, was written in a night and I am 100% proud of it even if people don’t necessarily love it.
Anonymous said: Seriously though...I was rewatching FMYI and I realized that Danny unbuckled his pants when they're making out in the bathroom and I legitimately got upset this show isn't on HBO :( we're being deprived!!
I know, right, That unbuckling,unzipping, clothes hitting the floor sound can be like a herald of truly great things to come. Not that I mind the funny ending, but…I wouldn’t have hated the paid cable ending either.
Chapters: 7/? Fandom: The Mindy Project Rating: Not Rated Warnings: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings Relationships: Danny Castellano/Mindy Lahiri Characters: Danny Castellano, Mindy Lahiri Summary:
Real talk: I kid. I mean I bought that Rick Astley album back when it came out. ‘Twas my jam as a kid. I hate You’ve Got Mail and I LOVE The Crow. I can’t abide the taste of anything blackcurrant, but I’ll eat anything with that fake grape taste. Let’s not worry too hard about my weird opinion.
Taste is subjective and mine’s no better than anyone else’s. I’m honest about a couple of my preferences (no thank you to most futurefic with kids, I find Betsy boring at best and any Jetsy really disturbing, and unfinished stuff drives me up a wall) and I’d love it if anyone had a contrasting opinion on the reviews to throw them out there. Smart debate about this beautiful flawed world is kind what makes this fandom great.
Chapter 2 for St barths is now up on ffnet as well as Ao3, enjoy if you haven’t already, I know some of you have commented and I will reply to you the next chance I get,gonna be out all day, just wanted to get this posted, thank you for reading!
