With Stephen gone, it’s left to you to tell your own stories.
(Bloom & Stephen, through the years)
It’s Sergeant Terrance Jeffords that shows Amy around on her first day at the 99th Precinct.
“What’s Rosa like?” Amy asks, curious about her absent colleague.
Gina smiles. “She is just the sweetest,” she enthuses and then cackles. “Ell oh ell. I couldn’t even say that with a straight face. She is going to eat you alive.” Gina makes a strange abortive claw gesture, as if miming detaching Amy’s eyes from their sockets and using them as the key ingredient in a margarita.
Amy grew up with seven older brothers. It takes more than some admittedly wacky pantomime to scare her. It’s possible that Gina didn’t mean that as a challenge, however coupled with Amy’s pathological need to be liked, and the fact that she had yet to meet a person she couldn’t charm through sheer persistence - well - Amy and Rosa’s first meeting was always going to be a recipe for disaster.
“There is an elf. On my shelf,” Captain Holt pronounces. It’s entirely possible he sounds more aggrieved than usual - Jake can never tell. Amy’s frowning though, and as the leading inhouse expert on all things Holt, she’s most likely frowning because he’s unhappy. Or she could be frowning because she just remembered she forgot to floss that morning.
“I didn’t put it there,” says Amy.
“ - Name of your sex tape!” Jake says, because it’s basically a reflex at this point, like punctuation, except he doesn’t use punctuation so that’s a bad example. Scratch that analogy! But the point remains.
Amy’s biting her lip. Maybe it’s the floss thing after all.
“You misunderstand,” says Captain Holt. “I placed the elf on my shelf.” There is a long pause. “His name is Jingles,” Captain Holt offers, as if this will clarify proceedings.
Jake blinks. Twice.

“Phryne. From the Greek for toad,” Phryne said, and her voice sounded delighted.
Twenty years later, and she still has yet to meet another Phryne - although she’d certainly met many toads. Kissed some of them, too.
