#i just really really love louis so much #and yeah he does a lot of not so good things and some outright shitty things #but he’s not a bad person on any level #he just wants to be respected #no more than that — he wants to be accepted #he didn’t just take mike as a slight to harvey or because he wanted his help #he took mike and then took it beyond just working together/using him/keeping him from harvey — he tried to bond with him #how much he wanted mike to actually like him was written in his attempt at quoting movies with him #trying to relate to him and amuse him whatever you want to label it in the same way harvey does #he tried and succeeded really in getting mike to like him because louis isn’t some demonic asshole #he’s just desperate for people to notice him and what he can do #but more than that — to like him
#ugh yes #Louis I love you #You just want to be cared about #for someone to see you as more than just some sort of slave driver and suck up #and mike actually did #he saw how smart you are #and how good you are at what you do #and just ugh #you are so good Louis #I have faith in you
#crying #look at harvey’s fucking face #tell me he isn’t broken up inside watching mike being unable to deal with grammys death #tell me he doesn’t care about mike #tell me he doesn’t want to keep mike safe and happy #tell me he doesn’t care about mike more than he cares about anyone else #oh god i can’t #their faces #this stupid fucking ship has ruined me for all others #i didn’t sign up for these feelings
#I look at his face and I wonder…how hard was it for him to keep his mouth shut? #how badly did he want to tell Mike he knew? #how badly did he want to force Mike to confide in him? #to tell him everything? #but he wasn’t about to do to him what everyone else would do #that’s not who they are #that’s not how they work #trust…faith…concern #you can tell me he doesn’t care but his face says otherwise #Harvey doesn’t let people get close #he doesn’t let them in #but he let Mike in #and now he’s hurting because MIKE’S hurting #and he’s trusting that Mike will tell him what’s wrong in his own time #because he trusts him #I never expected to love you as much as I do
Just noticed that during the entire “I want you to— I need you to trust me!” scene, Donna’s watching from her desk. (Go to high-res and look at the reflection in Harvey’s back.)
i love that they do shit like this ALL THE DAMN TIME, too. it really adds a lot.
#this scene is fucking important #look at everything that is happening #when i sent you home i didn’t mean for you to never come back #harvey is saying that no matter what - no matter how much they fight - he always expects them to be okay in the end #that no one thing is going to keep them apart and he always expects mike to come back #and then we have mike telling harvey about grammy and harvey already knew #he knew mike well enough to know he wasn’t dealing and respected him enough to give him the time and space to deal on his own terms #and mike acknowledging that he wasn’t wrong - that harvey dealt with mike in the exact way he needed #they know each other so well and respect the others views and actions and they do whatever the other needs #if you dont believe they are the most important person in the others life i have to wonder what show you are watching #i literally can’t with these two #sometimes i wish i had never watched this show because the knowledge that they will never be canon hurts my soul
#mike the morning after the wedding #when he wakes up he momentarily forgets where he is #but then he sees the breakfast tray and hears the shower running and the soft crooning #and it floods his memory #the sights and sounds of the day and night before #the weight-y feel of the white gold band on his finger #everything surfaces at once and he starts to smile #laughing to himself and he just can’t STOP #this was all he ever wanted #oops i feel’d #again
I couldn’t resist. So..I wrote the fic. Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8465793/1/Photograph
I don’t even watch this show. But that shit is homoerotic.
I started watching this show because of posts like this.
I think we all did.
Let’s take a minute to appreciate the fact that Mike changed in the limo, and Harvey was right next to him, like, the whole time.
The fact that this “common sense” also allowed Harvey to know Mike’s measurements for said Tuxedo.
Mike being an idiot means he didn’t realize Harvey feeling him up for said measurements.
