"Every artist was first an amateur"- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Well back to working on my Melinda May story which is how you know I’ve got five billion other things to do

We’ve talked about what a terrible houseguest Chilton is, now let’s talk about Barba. He’s not outright annoying but is irritating but only in ways that you can’t exactly bitch about without sounding overly particular. He’d do things like not taking his dishes to the sink even though he’s literally right there and leave his shoes laying about so that his half blind brother can trip over them and almost die. He’d not put books or movies back where they go (just because there doesn’t look to be an order doesn’t mean there’s not) and he has loud conversations on the phone at two in the morning despite the fact that Chilton has to be up at six. He’ll move Chilton’s glasses while he’s sleeping so he has to stumble around looking for them all morning. And he leaves his laundry in the living room for days instead of putting it away like any normal freaking person.

When you discuss the wage gap, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Only white women make $0.77 to a man’s dollar.
  • Black women make about $0.68 to a man’s dollar.
  • Latina women make about $0.58 to a man’s dollar.

Intersectionality matters.

I will keep reblogging this to point out that disabled people, including men, make 22 cents on the dollar. Mostly because it is legal to pay us below minimum wage, but whatevs.

To the WHITE man’s dollar*

every woman on tumblr should have this on their dash

And every man

Look how nobody’s yelling or arguing or making things into a competition. Look how this is to straight up educate people through a different perspective. Look how effective that makes the message.

Chilton loses his voice and convinces Barba to give the lecture he’s has to give through the various use of hand motions and puppy dog eyes.

okay but, it’s not like Chilton would make his family known. I mean a over-protective mother, a brother who’s good at everything and a disapproving father meant that people would not take him seriously, would not respect him as much as they should, or at least that’s what he thought. So he left the emergency contact list blank and pretended like he didn’t have anyone around the people at work. And everyone believed it.

So when Abel Gideon happened, no one tried to contact anyone. Not that it would have been all that hard (Chilton’s parents are in the phone book and Rafael makes the news every now and then), it’s just Jack or his team or Freddie didn’t think there would be anyone to contact so they didn’t even look. In fact, no one knew he was even in the hospital (because Freddie wasn’t writing about it and Jack kept it out of the news) until he missed Sunday dinner without calling. 

And even that in itself wasn’t unusual because sometimes he lost track of time, but Mama C likes to think she reacted properly to the situation. She did after all check his house and his work before stealing his phone from his office desk (which, okay, she did panic then because he never goes anywhere without it) and contacts that psychiatrist he used to work with. And Alana is tasked with telling her about Abel Gideon and the kidnapping and the cutting and offers to drive her to the hospital. And Alana did sit with the older woman by Frederick’s, who was still not awake, bedside until her husband got there. And much to Alana’s surprise two older sisters.

Rafael, who had missed Sunday dinner that week in order to work on a case, didn’t hear about Frederick until much later. And granted they’re relationship was strained and they didn’t really talk much but he should have known what was going on. And he can’t fault his mother (but he will his father) because she was practically hysterical about everything and telling him probably wasn’t at the top of her to-do list. He ended up dropping his case on someone else and heading for Baltimore within the hour.

Rafael felt like crying when he busted through the door of Frederick’s hospital room, his brother looked pale against the white sheets and small and sickly..and dead. He was asleep but his mother assured him that he had woken up on more than one occasion even asked about work of all things (which really shouldn’t surprise him). Rafael stayed by his side until Frederick opened awoke with a simple “that’s an ugly tie.” 

Rafael tells him he’s a jerk. 

I understand that chemistry is important but it’s eight in the morning and there are so many fan fictions about Bucky Barnes.

Frederick Chilton being accident-proned is my favorite thing

I like to think after Gideon, Chilton checked himself out of the hospital way before he should without anyone knowing but not really wants to be alone or smothered by his mother, he takes a cab to New York. Which is why Rafael’s court win was a short lived happy moment because he’s got a frantic call from his mother about how his brother isn’t in the hospital or at home. So he rushes to his office to get his keys and finds his brother, pale and asleep hunched over his desk, and thinks briefly about murdering the idiot. And he was totally justified in waking him up by slamming a pile of books right next to his face (which he does feel bad about later). After he explains that he didn’t know where to go but he couldn’t stay in the hospital and rambles on about everything and anything that he’d been refusing to talk about since the incident in a voice that makes Rafael want to cry, Rafael calls there mother and promises her that Frederick’s safe and will return home tomorrow. 

Then he gathers up his brother who is both sore and very tired and still to weak to walk long distances and takes him to his place. He puts on Frederick’s favorite movie and makes soup and chatters on about nothing until he falls asleep. And Rafael stays by his side throughout the night so when he awakes from a nightmare he knows he’s not alone.
