They make a pretty great couple, don’t they?

SVU thoughts

 So… I’m wondering after scrolling the SVU tags why is  that Amanda’s saving Nick come up as such a act of a “fool woman in love” instead of the actions of  a partner and friend reciprocating?

If it wasn’t for Nick and his protective instincts she would be in jail. He discovered Nate’s manwhore ways that  lead to the discover of Amanda’s other friend psycho plan to incriminating her. In “Gambler’s” Nick went to who at the moment he thought was an  Irish mob to threatened  him away from her even after as far as he knew she wasn’t  going to be his co-worker anymore. Also, what  Amanda did for Nick is not even remotely the worst thing she has done that can ruin her career forever. Declan covered her ass but what she did  could come up at any moment. Her addiction has her career permanently at  risk and probably that’s why she is willing to risk it for something more worth it.

amaro&rollins + criminal stories

You should do 13.09  Lost Traveler.:D So much rollaro bickering in that one.

lvsvu727:

Just a few of the #Rollaro tweets from tonight :)

The date one made me chuckle out loud.

Some seem a  bit frustrated by the lack of Rollaro final scene but I think we should be happy that they clearly are developing a story with this two.

Let’s overanalyze   this.;)

She dresses like a lumberjack and drives an old pickup around Manhattan…but yeah, let’s make her straight. Psh.

Holy stereotypes !
Also, she is 30+, she is a grunge/gen x girl.

Hey, she pings. You can’t fake the ping, or do a hell of a lot to hide it. Ask Hargitay.

You mean Kelli? I don’t know or care about her personal life. Amanda the character has been written as  straight  woman. What you or others want to believe is fanfiction subject.

I’m not disputing canon; I’m illustrating the sense it doesn’t make. Like Bensidy. I was insulted on behalf of straight ppl, but so many just ate it up.

Again you’re projecting your head cannon on to others and the show. In the show Olivia an Amanda are straight and the only thing that makes sense is  for them  to be  paired with the opposite   sex. 

Lmao. I don’t have a headcanon. Making observations regarding character traits and chemistry isn’t projection; it’s observation. I know what the writers write; I’m saying it occasionally fails to mesh. Rollins pings. Barba pings. Benson pings like a motherfucker. And if it’s the actor accidentally bleeding through, it doesn’t change what ends up on camera.

Sorry, I think you are seeing what you want to see and with that I won’t argue.:)

Hey, it’s cool. But in fairness, I think you’re either blind or don’t know what to look for. Not an insult. Kind of goes with the Straight territory.

So you  as gay can see  Kelli, Mariska and Raul are gay and that’s why they should  only play gay characters? You know that  goes against the interest of your  community? I’m sure Raul hopes producers and viewers see beyond that.  I sure can’t careless and I’m not looking for  the gayness on Raul’s portrayal  of Rafael. Even when I had fun with  Barbra/Amaro on  October Surprise.

Now who’s projecting? Lol. No, I didn’t say they all three should be gay characters. I don’t think Dick Wolf would allow ANY of them to be (now *that’s* speculation), but ambiguities exist that are so obvious if you are gay, they almost can’t be anything but intentional. L&O SVU has a history of queer baiting. And not to put too fine a point on it, but it’s so very very hard to debate a Straight L&O fan without humming ‘I know something you don’t know’…

Read your first posts, you said, Kelli pings so Amanda should be gay and then added  Mariska and Raul. So far what you know that I don’t is irrelevant to the show cannon and my enjoyment of it. and  I can only advice you to stop taking  the bait.

Lol. If you’re going to put words in my mouth, then this is essentially a debate you are having with yourself. All I did was make observations that conflict with Rollins being a straight character, and mind you, she could still be bi. At the end of the day, she’s whatever Leight&Co. want her to be, and nothing either of us says has the potential to alter canon. Again, don’t confuse observation with something else, including ‘taking the bait’…

Exactly. Glad we reach and understanding, according to the producers she is a straight woman. That could change? maybe but so far the ambiguity or conflict is only in your head.

Not only you said that because Kelli pings Amanda should be gay but because Amanda wore a lumberjack and drives a pick up she should/most be gay.

*sigh* You’re doing it again, mate. Rollins does dress like a lumberjack and Rollins does drive a pickup. Among other things. Observations. Factual observations. Nowhere in there is a ‘should be’ anything. Observation. Of. Conflicting. Information. Would I like her to be gay? Sure. But it’s a tv show. I would rather have certain things the way they already are in real life with these ppl than have a fake version from a little glowing box.

Back to where we start. Wearing a lumberjack shirt  and drive a pickup doesn’t make a woman gay, that’s a fact, even less a  character that is written as straight. Your observation is based in an absurd stereotype and you wanting her to be gay.

"L&O SVU has a history of queer baiting."
That they do, but SVU also has a history of baiting ANY ship following that might draw in more viewers.  It’s a marketing ploy.   I’ve always felt that writers try to keep the sexual preference of most characters as open and as ambiguous as possible so that viewers can draw the conclusion that fits their schema the best. Look what they did with Olivia during the NB years - of course they put in a lot of Olivia/Elliot vibes - but the Olivia/Alex vibes were always close behind.  Why?  They wanted to cater  to the fans.
To assert that any character must be gay or straight (unless specifically stated as in the case of Dr. Huang) doesn’t seem to gel with the way that most of the characters are written.  I would believe an Olivia/Amanda pairing just as much as an Amanda/Nick pairing and I would believe Barba/Huang just as well as Barba/Benson. 
We don’t know much about the character’s personal lives (outside of the main vices and woes) to draw solid conclusions from.  Sometimes, something just “feels right” to a person.  Different strokes for different folks….as much as I  hate cliches….
 

So true. I have shipped Rollaro since season one for shallow, shallow reasons.LOL and I always thought it wasn’t going to happen in cannon and I was happy with that. Even when the writing started to pointed that way I thought they were just teasing and I was ok with it, damn it was so much more than anyone else had gotten.

 It can still be just one cruel tease.
