Who is your favorite character? :D

Jessica! In addition to being a super hot HBIC, she's also a good boss (authoritative yet fair) and was/is an excellent mentor to Harvey.

Re: TELL ME WHAT TO MAKE

Mike icons. Enough Mike icons to feed a small army. An army of Mike icons. Feasting on Mike icons.
And also some Rachel icons, because she's rad.

As of now, we have 69 prompts. Someone should celebrate by requesting a 69 fic. Just saying.
Let it never be said that I haven't done anything for you!

How has no one else responded to this before now?!


Women in Suits

How do you all feel about the treatment of women in the Suits canon so far? I know we don't have much to discuss yet, but I think it's important to keep it in mind as the show progresses.

What I like, so far, is that the women are depicted as smart, capable and clever. In shows with Genius Characters, all too often, women mostly stand around Not Understand but In Awe Of his intelligence. However, here, the women are not only unimpressed by the Genius Character, but they are also better equipped to survive.

I also really like that the head of the firm is a woman (a woman of color, at that!). While Jessica recognizes that Harvey is a Special Snowflake, she still doesn't buy a lot of his shit. My only fear is that she will become a useless authority figure - brought in only to show how much Harvey doesn't care about the rules.
(Think Cuddy from the show House. Most episodes go like this:
House: I will do this thing.
Cuddy: No.
House: I will still do this thing.
Cuddy: Why?
House: Because you are dumb and I am right.
Cuddy: Oh, look! I am dumb and you are right.
SCENE)

ANYWAY. Thoughts?

Re: Women in Suits

You're right, in so many shows, the women are portrayed so despicably. For example, I love Supernatural to bits, but it's the men of SPN that I dig, and not because I'm sexist of women. They are just badly characterized and often damsels in distress - like, I seriously HATE Lisa, the woman Dean dates the longest, because she actually claims a year with a man who was mourning his brother, depressed by their domesticity, and self-medicating himself with copious amounts of alcohol, was the BEST year of her life. I CAN'T EVEN! I don't like that because it actually offends my feminist sensibilities, that a woman has to need a man to be happy. So far, in Suits, all the female characters are self-motivated and kind of badass. I hope they stay that way, because while Cuddy was initially alright, now she does annoy me with how much of a rug she is for House to walk all over. :/

I love this meme and fandom and everything it chooses to be!

Hope it's okay to ask a question here ...

... It's show related, at least.

Does anyone know (or want to guess) where the Pearson Hardman offices are supposed to be located in NYC? I can't remember if they've given it a canon address in the show. :/

Re: Hope it's okay to ask a question here ...

Its somewhere near I want to say 52nd street. I regonozie the outside of the building but I can't remember the exact street.

Fanvid

So...I was feeling a bit silly yesterday, so I made a fanvid for Harvey and Mike set to "I Won't Say I'm In Love" from Disney's Hercules. The basic premise is that Harvey refuses to admit he's in love with Mike, despite the fact that everyone at the office - Mike included - thinks its very obvious.

Here's the link if anyone wants to check it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vFdPCYK2p1Y

Re: Fanvid

This? Is awesome! They're so in-character, and everything's timed perfectly!

NOTICE FROM FANDOM

Apparently, if we can get #ShirtlessHarvey trending on twitter (those of you that participate in the twittersphere), the co-producer of Suits, Gavin Barclay, will make it happen.

Meme problems

(Anonymous)
Is anyone else having problems with the meme or is it just me?
I have been having computer problems recently and I'm not sure if I'm the only one or not but sometimes I get everything posted in a thread, sometimes I get half, and sometimes I only get the first comment. Is this just my computer being stupid?

Re: Meme problems

(Anonymous)
It's LJ, bb. The entire site has been having problems for the past few months. Sometimes newly posted comments fall into a black hole, never to be seen from again. :( I find that browsing while logged in solves the problem of disappearing threads, though. Usually. Then use a separate browser for posting anon comments. Try it, nonnie!

hi~
Is anyone interested in Suits Wallpapers? :3
I'm thinking about making some and if anyone has any request I would love to fill them! -u-
Also, I'm making some icons from episode 2&3 if anyone is interested in suggesting/requesting on what I should make. ^^;
(I can go back to episode one also~)

Re: i'm drowning in Suits. NBD <3

:O

I AM! If they're anything like your icons, I bet they'll be gorgeous. Not sure as to specific requests. Maybe just Harvey and Mike with many of their more provocative lines - "you smiled when I came in today," "admit it, you care about me," "I thought this was OUR time," and so on - splashed across it.

As for icons, you should DEFINITELY do something with the fist-bump, at least! That scene was so adorable! And maybe with Mike, when he had his hair fixed to look like Harvey's! ♥

Sorry, I'm rambling too much, lol.

hey, so does anyone have any guesstimations for characters ages? i looked at the usa website but it was entirely unhelpful.

Harvey wrote the paperwork for the car company "a dozen years ago" when he was two years younger than Mike's current age. So, that makes him ten years older than Mike, right?
Say he's thirty right now. A dozen years ago, he would have been eighteen. Which is two years younger than Mike, making Mike twenty. And he couldn't have been eighteen, because that's ridiculous. But, yeah, they're ten years apart.

Oh God, this is why I'm an English major.

cries ok i'm back for more. :| i need ideas for books mike might have read in recent history. (i even screencapped his bookshelves, i know, that's how cool i am. but alas all was blurry). he mentioned Freakonomics but nothing else, at least as far as i remember.

thoughts? is he a fiction guy, genre fiction guy, non fiction guy, or just an everything guy?

(Anonymous)
I see him being an everything guy.
As for what books he might have read...Probably since joining the firm he'd be mostly reading things pertaining to the law? Or maybe a lot of reference books so he can join in conversations with clients and co-workers and prove his worth by being knowledgeable on a bunk of topics. I know that isn't fun stuff but if I was Mike it's what I would be doing.
Well no. That’s not true. I would be getting every book you would have read as a Harvard Law student and tearing though them as fast as a I could but it doesn't look like Mike's done that considering all the problems he has been having in the office.

Who would you vote best dressed?

(Anonymous)
Whose wardrobe do you like best on suits?

While I love three piece suits (waistcoats make me weak in the knees) and the slicked back hair I have to admit that I like Mike’s skinny ties and his lovely casual wear better. But that all was kind of pointless since Jessica wins for me.

Re: Who would you vote best dressed?

Harvey's wardrobe makes me swoon. I totally agree with the waist coat comment, they make me weak in the knees too. While I love skinny ties, and I think Mike would look awkward in wider ties (like a child trying to dress like their dad). Although it could also be because of who is wearing the clothes and Gabriel Macht/Harvey is just to charming to resist...

um, hey~
just wanted to put my love for suits out there.
and the meme is AMAZING! i love that this show hasn't even been on a month, and yet there's such a lovely fandom.

my adventures on wiki

HI I'M BACK LOL.

ok, so i was going over that first scene between harvey and mike again, i was intrigued when i realized mike never actually comes out and claims to have a photographic memory. in fact, they (the producers) seem to take pains to avoid that claim, having mike say instead:

"I told you, I like to read. And once I read something, I understand it. And once I understand it, I never forget it."

anyway, this inspired me to go on a quick run to Wikipedia (the fount of all knowledge, right?) and it turns out that eidetic memory (photographic recall) is so extremely rare (for the long-term variety, anyway) that it's never actually been concretely, scientifically documented.

science! human brains! weird stuff. i like it. but yeah i couldn't come up with a technical term to apply to mike other than "really smart, and REALLY good memory", so. i guess more foraging through wiki is needed, idk. or maybe the producers will be nice and address the extent of mike's abilities and give us some specifics, lol.

Who would you cast...

...as genderswap versions of Suits characters?

imo --

Harvey: Charlize Theron or Naomi Watts
Jessica: Idris Elba or Boris Kodjoe
Rachel: Wentworth Miller

question regarding consent

So this is a bit more serious than the other posts so far, and I don't intend to offend anyone, but it is something I want to consider for potentially more serious fills. (This is not intending to disrespect the prompter who initially got me thinking about this! I hope that anon gets the fill of her dreams.)

What are the Pearson Harden (Hardman...? USA will need to help us out and make a decision here) fraternization policies? If someone found out Mike and Harvey were in a relationship (or just suspected), what might happen? Jessica seems like she's especially sensitive to workplace harassment.

With these two characters specifically, the power dynamics are kind of screwy. They do have a boss/employee relationship, but they also both have blackmail on each other, they're both relying on the other to keep their jobs...do you think that a non-consensual relationship is possible with one party being unaware that the other is only in the relationship because they feel they have to be?

In my opinion, it wouldn't be possible with the characters we've been presented on the show due to the perceptive nature of the main and supporting characters, unless we're saying that the other person is deliberately using the leverage of continued employment or threatening disbarment. Thoughts?

Re: question regarding consent

(Anonymous)
I think in the real world, there are rules against fraternizing, especially with people you directly work with. (Or not even. Harvey could be in a relationship with a mail room clerk and use his power as senior partner to give his sweetheart time off or something.) Though, I've never worked for a law firm so I can't say for sure.

I think this is a really interesting idea to bring up. A lot of it has to do with the characters themselves, and how they would handle a relationship like you're describing.

Mike might be wary from his screw ups with Trevor, so he could either be hyper-aware of unhealthy relationships, or he could be emotionally fragile enough to not realize what's happening. Harvey seems to have rules or about the people he goes after (like not sleeping with married women), so that could make him very aware of his power over his potential-lovers. He could also throw himself into the "worship me I am your boss" role and take complete advantage of Mike.

So many things to think about!

Oh my babies! I am so proud of all of you! Usually, the filled:unfilled ratio of prompts is waaay off, but I am so happy to say that of the ~220 prompts we have, 50 of them have been filled. That may not seem like a lot, but it's a little bit less than a quarter. Not bad odds for a kink meme, am I right? And I can guarantee there are some super talented people working on EVEN MORE FILLS now.

haha, working on popping my porn-drawing cherry...

(Anonymous)
So I've decided to make this my first fandom for NC-17 art! And it's going pretty well on the art front.

I just got a weird feeling while I was glancing over my work for the night. And I realized how awkward I felt about making naked gay art of a guy whose tumblr I follow.

...Also, totally can't post anything porny I draw to tumblr. Adams reblogged Suits fanart. HE'S WATCHING THE TAG YOU GUYS. I can't.

So yeah. Any advice on getting past this?

Re: haha, working on popping my porn-drawing cherry...

(Anonymous)
...Don't post on tumblr? I dunno, bb, it's a conundrum. Why does Adams have to be so internet savvy? Most celebs don't (shouldn't?) have tumblrs. THERE IS A TUMBLR DEDICATED TO HARVEY/MIKE DOES HE KNOW ABOUT IT?

He probably mods it.

OOOH OOOH. If I did this I'd put Harvey in Slytherin. Not bad-guy Slytherin, just...sly. With people thinking he's a jerk though there's more depth to him than they know. (But not really like fanon!Malfoy)

I'd totally rip apart the preconception most wizards have about all Slytherins being bad (even though Rowling seemed to believe it herself, or at least didn't disprove it individually**).

**aside from Regulus Black, I guess, who wasn't shiny and good and pure, but more mislead/wrong then felt remorse, from what I gathered.
