Mindy/Danny - babies.
She came into his office and quietly closed the door behind her. He looked up at her with raised eyebrows—usually she stomps in, makes a grandiose announcement and exits dramatically.
But, now, she just sat down across from him and bit her lip, not looking at him.
“Min?” he said, the concern in his voice apparent.
She looked at him then, determination taking over her brown eyes. She opened her mouth and shut it again. Danny started to sweat a little bit.
“Is everything okay?”
She took at deep breath. “Babies are important.”
Danny furrowed his brows in confusion. “I should say so. They’re kind of our career, Mindy.”
“…and I…I want one.”
Mindy took his silence as a bad sign, but she needed to get this out. “I know we agreed we would wait awhile so we could have a couple years to ourselves after the wedding, but I’ve been thinking about it and I don’t have anymore time, babe. The biological clock is a real thing, Danny. I mean, sure, Gwen Stefani had a kid at forty-four, but she’s Gwen Stefani. All those tours probably did great things for her uterus. I am not Gwen—although I’m her equal when it comes to fashion and women empowerment inspiration—my idea of exercise is thinking about going to the gym or walking the four blocks to get those really good hot dogs from Vinnie’s stand.” She took a deep breath and slumped in her chair, as if the weight of the world had been lifted off her shoulders.
“How…um, how long have you been thinking about this?”
“About a week.”
“I needed time to think about it, Daniel. Really think about it, okay? I know that it’s a decision that we both have to agree on, but it is my body, so my opinion counts a little more than yours. Like, fifty-one/forty-nine, alright? I just thought I’d come in here and…and we’d discuss it like the mature, married adults we are.” Mindy stood up and placed her hands on his desk. “This is how I’m feeling, how’re you feeling?”
He quirked a smile. “And this is what you really want?”
“Yes,” she answered without hesitation.
“Really, really want?”
“One more question. What happened?”
Mindy understood the implied question and “My favorite part of my job is seeing the look on a mother’s face the moment they hold their baby for the first time. No matter how long or painful the labor was, the mom always looks like she’s about to burst with love. There’s so much joy in that, Danny. And it’s amazing to watch. When I delivered Mrs. Greenburg the other day, I had to excuse myself to the bathroom before I started sobbing. I want that so badly, Danny. I want a family so badly. And I want it with you. We don’t even have to name it Piper or Bree or anything, we can choose the name together. All I know is, I want to do it with you.”
“Okay,” he said as he stood up to go to her. “I said, okay.” He grabbed her hand and kissed her knuckles.
They both stood there for a moment, smiling at each other. Mindy then leaned forward, capturing his lips with hers.
“Dr. Castellano, did we just decide to have a baby?”
“I believe we did, Dr. Castellano.”
i need to catch up on mmfd.
I’ve only watched the first episode of the second season and half of the second and apparently, shit just went down. Like, my dash is blowin’ up.
I don’t know if I can do this. I know what happens to Rae and Finn and right now, in my world, they’re still happy and together and I don’t know if I can do this, y’all. I just…I’m lost.
Like, I want to know more, but I don’t want my heart to shatter like I know it will.
faith, luck, and a little bit of pixie dust.
The Mindy Project was renewed for a third season. I would be lying if I said I heard the news and my eyes stayed dry.
I can now enjoy the rest of the season in peace. We all can. Because Mindy Kaling is a fucking queen.
(Oh, and suck it Cancellation Bear.)
ummmm how about Jake secretly hearing a conversation of Amy and anyotherperson in which she says she likes him? (:
He was on his way to the evidence lockup when he heard her say his name. He was about to answer, but then he saw her face. She was in the break room with a cup of coffee in her hand and bags under her eyes.
It was one of those late nights at the precinct. The squad was working hard on a kidnapping case and they were so close to nailing the guy who did it, Jake could taste it on his tongue. They just needed proof. Which is why they were there, burning the midnight oil.
He quickly snuck out of Santiago’s line of sight and casually leaned up against the wall, opening the file in his hands and pretending to go over it.
"So, that’s all you wanted from me, to give these witness statements to Jake?" Gina’s voice whined.
"Yes…?" Santiago hesitantly answered.
"Hey, didn’t you have a date tonight, with what’s-his-face?"
"Teddy," he heard her say with a sigh. "Yeah. I had to cancel on him because of this."
Jake tried not to feel smug about his partner not seeing her kind-of-boyfriend. He failed.
"He’s hot, dude. Congrats." Jake scoffed. "How’s the sex?" That made Jake cough and he hoped they didn’t hear him. Because that would have been an awkward conversation to have.
"I…I wouldn’t know."
you guys are the best.
There have been more prompts this time around than any other time I’ve called for them before, and that makes me so fucking happy.
I will say this—I need time to think about them, so forgive me if they take awhile. (I do also have a sketch show coming up, so that might take up some writing time.) BUT, I WILL GET AROUND TO IT. ALL OF THEM.
Thanks again, lovelies. Stay golden.
drabble times are fun times.
I’m taking prompts, guys. (Yay!) With only one rule:
- No smut.
I’m sorry. I know that some of you guys like that. (Not that I blame you…wait, what? Never mind.) But, I can’t do it. It’s weird for me and do you know how bad smut is if it isn’t done right? I’m not going to put y’all—or myself, for that matter—through that torture.
My inbox is open.
Once you get this, you have to say 5 nice/good things about yourself, then send it to 10 of your favorite followers. ❤️
What?! I’m blushing.
- I like my laugh. And my sense of humor. I think those are my best qualities.
- My eyes are my best physical trait, in my opinion.
- I’m really in tune with people emotionally. It’s how I connect.
- I like to believe the best in people.
- I have pretty awesome grammar skills.
(This made my day, thank you!)
