ok, I put this in the tags on my other post but I’m stuck on it, especially since the free world seems to hate Mike for everything he’s doing.
I have so much fucking anxiety right now about Mike being completely on his own. like, that kid should never be without a keeper, for one. and now he’s flailing around making terrible choices and the primary reason he’s doing that is because there’s no one he can trust anymore to say, STOP, we’re gonna figure out another way to do this. there’s no one he can run ideas by without threat of getting fired. there’s no one watching his back. I think about how unbreakable a safety line Harvey’s been all this time and now he’s got nothing to keep him from, you know, plummeting to a messy death, and I just…I feel so twitchy and terrified on his behalf. it hits all my fucking issues, man. every time we see a meeting between him and Sitwell, I have to breathe into a fucking paper bag. like, all these half-cocked ideas are him trying to keep his head above water when he knows nobody’s there to throw him a rope, and just. ok I can’t think about this anymore, I’m just gonna go. read porn or something.
MIKE WEARS HIS WATCH WEIRD
I really never noticed this. awesome. shit, now I want to use this at some point.
I don’t follow Suits (except to watch funny clips on Youtube), but there’s a wealth of potential backstory in the fact that it is most common for military (and active combat/spec ops military) to wear watches that way, because supposedly makes it easier to check on it when holding a weapon and while in position. *shrugs*
O_O I DID NOT KNOW THIS. lol. thank you. there’s no way Mike was military of any kind, but I wonder if maybe his dad was retired military or something.
or maybe he just checks his watch weird, but I like the info
if Rachel *does* get into Stanford, it’s going to be logical that she suggests Mike quit his fraudulent career and move there with her. he has no need for the huge salary anymore, no family or even friends holding him in New York…obv, he’d decide not to go (if this were canon - can’t have a show without Mike), and at that point the only reason he’d have to stay is Harvey.
I mean, I ship Mike and Rachel, actually, but…there are the feelings I have for them and then the feelings I have for the otp of my heart, and as I was following that train of thought to its logical conclusion, I had a little surge of twu wuv.
(and now I think someone should write it - free bunny to a good home)
I’m honestly confused by everyone saying Mike and Rachel said I love you “too soon.” they’ve been in love pretty much since the beginning of season 2, imo, so it makes total sense to me that they’d say it a few weeks into dating. I guess if they started dating right after they met, that’s one thing, but there’s a year’s worth of friendship and dancing around one another leading up to their relationship instead.
all the side-taking I’m seeing in Suits tags cracks me the up because literally all of them are Not Innocent. we’ve seen each and every one of them commit indefensible acts against people that trusted them. you can argue (hell, I am arguing) that they all deserve what they get at this point. they all know exactly what game they’re playing.
it’s a viper pit. it’s *corporate law.* no woobies were harmed in the making of this tv show. there *are no good guys*, just characters we root for, or not.
I personally love it - deeply flawed characters are the best characters, and holy fuck, are all these characters deeply flawed. but at the same time, there’s something to love about all of them. it’s a testament to how well-drawn the characters are that anybody manages to think of *any* of them as the innocent party at all…there’s not a one of them that I’d want to deal with on a regular basis (otoh, I’d take a one-night stand in a heartbeat with most of the office). they’ve managed to take these morally-charcoal, backstabbing, petty, power-hungry children-in-power-suits and make them sympathetic. equally sympathetic (and equally unsympathetic), across the board. it’s *beautiful*. it’s *interesting*.
the natural consequence of that is character wars, I guess, but it bums me the fuck out. because I love all of them, and think they all deserve a good hard spanking, so all the bickering and bashing just gives me a headache. half because I hate to see them bashed, and half because I hate to see them angel-ified. they’re gorgeous, endearing little shitheads, and my fondest wish would be that everyone could love them just as Korsch made them.
