I knooooow, it’s magical, all this reblogging and live-liking!
Did you like Big News?!?!

And you didn’t invite me over???
i feel like nobody but me remembers that this happened
ATTN annakovsky. (and everyone else.)
Jess, this is really hard and I don’t know what to do. I don’t know what to call you… It’s like a riddle.
Her face after he says, “No problem; that’s what I’m here
His face when she brings up the social component of going to the bathroom! They really want to be having this conversation in the same room. DDDDD=
They make my heart twist itself up into my throat. So very sad, so very good to each other even still, even now.
Look at this.. episode 3x01 “All In” bts
If nothing else, I think we can say they’re pretty damn good at building themselves forts out of the back of motor vehicles; Nick’s moving van in the desert and this.
(Jess watching him string up the rope, fancy fixing them an awning, his arms flexing in the stupid torn off sleeves of his shirt and her fingers tingling and now she can just say c’mere, wind her fingers in his and tug him down off the chair and onto her.)
(The sheet moving lazily in the breeze above them, sunlit and dreamy, while they lie looking up at it afterwards.)
(His fingers in her hair. Her hand on his chest.)
To ruminate on.
NOT TO BE A STICKLER BUT GOLD IS COMMAND, RED IS ENGINEERING. :P
UM, DEPENDS ON YOUR TIMELINE MY FRIEND!
BUT I WILL TAKE NICK MILLER IN EITHER COLOR, IN ANY TIMELINE, AS LONG AS HE’S BITCHING ABOUT THE WARP CORE AND STORING HALF-EATEN SANDWICHES IN JEFFRIES TUBES.
WELL, FINE, TWIST MY ARM THEN.
I’ve gotta say, seeing the phrase Starfleet Academy AU in your Brooklyn 99 version of this made fireworks start exploding in my brain, WHY DIDN’T I EVER REALIZE THAT COULD BE AN AU. AN AU FOR EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING. But especially for New Girl?!!?!? Or in your own words:
EVERYONE IS IN STARFLEET AND NOTHING HURTS. I’m thinking nu!Trek universe Starfleet, but whatever pick any timeline you want (TOS, TNG, DS9 idec) and run with it. Because everything is 100% better in space. This would function like a high school / college AU but 1000% better because chances are everyone had a career for a while and then came over to be a redshirt.
Jess is on track to be a Science Officer and even though pantsuits are more in vogue lately among the female cadets, she’s very committed to rocking the old school mini and boots look.
Nick Miller is generally slouched down in his grubby gold engineer’s jumper in the back of a classroom. His grades aren’t great, but he scored well on the entrance exam and he’s supposed to be a genius at impossible fixes of transporter systems and impulse thrusters on the old junk cruisers he spent his twenties crewing on. Word has it he once juryrigged three transporter systems together to beam Winston pingpong style across three moons of their home system as a joke. If you buy him a shot of Aldebaran whiskey (the good kind, not that counterfeit Ferengi crap), he’ll tell you the story, including the fact that he wasn’t fully sober when he did it.
Schmidt’s a helmsman born and bred. Triple check your coordinates and quadruple check your course lay-ins, that’s what he always says. Or do you want to end up in the middle of some pea soup nebula or halfway down a wormhole to the Gamma Quadrant? No, you do not. He’s tried this speech out on a lot of different women in the local divebar: so far it hasn’t impressed any of them — not the Betazoids, Andorians, Vulcans (definitely not the Vulcans) or Bajorans he’s tried it on — but he’s not giving up. There’s a cute Orion girl who hangs out there sometimes that he has his eye on.
(Nick and Schmidt each had private fantasies about rooming with some cool, exotic alien — someone who they could show Earth culture to and who would someday declare them to be an honorary member of their race, that’s how close they’d be. Turns out they just got each other, but that lifestyle divide may be even greater.)
Winston applied to serve as a Security officer but honestly all the hand-to-hand combat training and classroom footage of gory away missions and hostile bridge takeovers is making him kind of queasy. He sort of things he should reconsider. He’s also going to get in trouble soon about Ferguson because Tribbles are definitely not permitted in Academy dorms.
Cece’s not Fleet, but she’s done tours on a few missions as part of an ambassador’s team here and there. She’s Federation diplomat, no nonsense and with a connection or two on every Deep Space station in the quadrant.
NOW WHO IS GOING TO WRITE ME THIS 30,000 WORD FIC??!?!
AMY ACKER AND SARAH SHAHI ARE ON A SHOW TOGETHER NOW?!?!
… Person of Interest, huh? Le sigh. In the words of Emily Gilmore, I don’t find forensic work quite as fascinating as the rest of the world. Instead, I will just enjoy this gif set and make up stories for it in my head.
OKAY NEW GIRL AUs HUH.
S3 AU — Keep the Nick/Jess storyline for that plot line, then make ALL OF THE FOLLOWING CHANGES:
- Schmidt keeps his damn mouth shut at Cece’s wedding. Cece and Shivrang get married for realsies, and they go on honeymoon in Southeast Asia or something, idk.
- S3 is then a balance between Nick/Jess and “love matches” versus Cece and Shivrang and where you come to love the person you’re with, and you choose each other not for romantic reasons but for other ones, and how you make that work. How do you date and be married at the same time? It also gives Cece and Jess some dramatic tension in their relationship, because maybe Cece feels….not insecure but anxious about her marriage to Shivrang.
- Schmidt continues to be super inappropriate with Cece, but he’s trying to fix himself. Keep Elizabeth because SHE WAS/IS AWESOME and deserved way better. Have her dump Schmidt because he’s worthless but have her “keep the kids in the divorce” so to speak.
- Winston gets a goddamn plot line. Daisy comes back, having been promoted to a role that keeps her in town more. Keep Coach, maybe have these four do wacky adventures. Either way, make Schmidt’s emotional growth the D/E plot for the first half of the season, giving Winston/Daisy the primary C plot.
- Shivrang is slowly being accepted into the crazy that is the group’s social circle. He’s pretty easygoing and proves to be an adept “straight man,” commenting wryly (dryly! he’s quite droll!) on what’s going on around them. But he’s super not okay with how Schmidt talks to and treats Cece and eventually publicly calls Schmidt out on it, which earns him a lot of respect with the crew and bridges a pain point between him and Cece. (God, I just really wanted to see an “arranged marriage” plot line handled well and not vaguely-racist-ly on Western TV for once in my goddamn life.)
- Jess has a sister, sure, idk.
Genderflipped Three (Wo)Men and a Baby AU — Nick, Winnie, and Schmidt are roommates who suddenly find themselves with a random child and an extra room in their converted loft apartment. Enter Jessie Day, school guidance counselor and the worst with kids. Shake, don’t stir. Featuring C.C. Parekh, Jessie’s best bro and retired model.
High School AU — When Coach picks basketball over Academic Decathlon, the team needs to find a replacement stat. Enter new transfer student, Jessica Day, and her straight-A report card, looking for some new clubs to join that would look killer on her college application.
Reverse Pilot AU — Jessica Day’s last three roommates all got married / transferred / seriously injured in a car wreck, so now she’s resorting to Craigslist to fill in her loft because Lord knows she can’t make rent solo on a teacher’s salary. She’s drinking away her sorrows — no one wants to live with her and her adorable crinolines — when the bartender and his two barfly buddies casually mention they’re looking for a new place. Hijinx ensue. (Jess keeps threatening to evict them, everyone is unnecessarily naked, chore wheels, the works.)
Ouran High School Host Club AU — With Jess as Haruhi, Nick as Tamaki, Cece as Renge, Winston as Kyouya, Schmidt as the Hitachiin twins (yes, both of them), Coach as Mori, and Shivrang as Hunny-sempai. Because cracky anime-inspired AUs are the best.
THESE ARE SO GREAT AND INTRIGUING, aaahhhh! God, it makes my heart just ache to imagine Elizabeth still being around. Also what an interesting dynamic the show would be with seven regular! (Right? Jess, Nick, Winston, Schmidt, Cece, Coach, Shivrang, Elizabeth. PUT THAT PETITION UP ON WHITEHOUSE.GOV.)
But I’m totally most intrigued by the reverse pilot au. UNNECESSARILY NAKED. CHORE WHEELS. Hijinx and bossiness and Jess being outnumbered and teased and talked down and coaxed out of her huffiness, feeling kind of overwhelmed at all this boyness suddenly around her, but kind of ultra loving it too. (Oh, well, wait, I guess that’s also this universe. Heh.)
PETITION FOR THE HILARIOUS JESSICA WILLIAMS TO GET HER OWN SHOW!
YES YES YES YES YES
WHERE DO I COSIGN
kyrafic replied to your post “Prompt? I’ve never really done them? So why not?”Landlord:Accidental ménage kissing.
"I can do this and you can’t," he hisses one last time through smiling teeth and goes for it.
Jess wiggles away, pushing against him with her pale arms and why are there so many of them? What is she an octopus? Ha! Good on you, Miller. Point made. He wins. In your face, Jess!
Nick steps back, bringing his hands up in victory when she miscalculates their positions, turns too wild, and pushes them both down. They crash on the bed and Jess lands perfectly, stupidly, against his mouth in a rosy blur of lips. Her lips, his mouth. Together. And wow. Their eyes are wide open. Hers are so enormous he can see himself reflected in them, all nose and frantic staring. She closes them, grabbing fistfuls of his shirt, anchoring herself in place and just digs into him. He doesn’t know if this is her fighting back, if this is part of the dare, if she’s really kissing him or even who’s hands are in his hair. It’s irrelevant. He’s happy to lose. And he’ll keep on losing for as long as this lasts.
After a while, she pulls back. Fuck, she’s the prettiest girl in the world. They stare at one another for a bit, then scramble to standing to the sound of a fading flute solo. This song is not as cool as he remembers and now he’s going to have to remember it. Jess gasps and covers her mouth with one hand, looking behind him the way a deer might look at roadkill. He knows, he just knows this is a bad idea, but he turns anyway. Sure enough, there’s Remy, who’s apparently changed his mind about who the underpants captain is because he’s currently without, spread-eagled on Jess’ floral comforter thingy, looking more naked than anything Nick Miller has ever seen.
"That was great, you guys. I’m totally ready when you are." He winks.
MAGIC MAGIC MAGIC.
