But anyway, the reason I'm posting, is that I was way late to the party in watching Parks and Recreation. I didn't know Chris Pratt was in it! It's so good to see him again! Unfortunately, it's spurred my craving for Bright-related fanfic and revived a plot bunny I've never been able to write or find something similar to read.
I've never been able to really let go of the episode where Bright won't use Colin as an excuse for his failures and when he's arguing with Harold about whether or not he can get to college without sports, Harold belts out "Because you're not SMART ENOUGH!" Of course, you know the moment he said it he regretted it, and I loved the way it all played out, but I'd be really interested in a story where it kind of pushed Bright over the edge and he leaves Everwood without a word, moves to Denver and is just really low until becoming a paramedic and starting a new life before running into the Abbots while on the job and rekindling a relationship.
Yeah, I'm probably going to have to write it. Or just keep imagining it. That works, too.
