take care of yourself; you deserve it.

# I’m not crying
# I’m totally over this scene
# I don’t miss Cragen at all
# nope totally not
# …nope…
# ……………..godDAMNIT CRAGEN WHY DID YOU HAVE TO GO
# YOU WERE LIKE A BIG SQUISHY PUPPY FATHER FIGURE
# YOU PRETENDED TO BE MEAN AND GRUFF TO HIDE HOW ADORABLE AND SWEET YOU WERE
# YOU WERE MY FAVORITE CHARACTER AFTER LIV AND ELLIOT
# YOU WERE THE FATHER FIGURE THAT LIV AND EL NEEDED IN THEIR LIVES
# YOU WERE LIV’S ROCK AFTER ELLIOT LEFT
# EVEN AFTER MUNCH LEFT
# AT LEAST SHE STILL HAD YOU
# AT LEAST YOU WERE STILL THERE
# AT LEAST THERE WAS SOME /STABILITY/ AND I KNOW THAT WORD IMPLIES ELLIOT BUT I N THE ACTUAL DICTIONARY DEFINITION YOU WERE IT
# YOU LOOKED OUT FOR YOUR SQUAD
# YOU WERE NOBLE
# AND KIND AND CARING AND YOU HAD A HEART BIGGER THAN THE SHINE ON YOUR BALD HEAD
# YOU HAD THIS TOUGH EXTERIOR TO HIDE AND PROTECT HOW QUALITY OF A HUMAN BEING YOU WERE
# AND DANN FLOREK WAS FUCKING AMAZING AND UNDERRATED AS FUCK IN HIS PORTRAYAL OF YOU
# DO YOUR FAVES HAVE MORE THAN TWENTY YEARS OF CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT WITHOUT A SINGLE YEAR BREAK???
# NOBODY HAS THAT
# EXCEPT JOHN MUNCH
# AND THIS FUCKING GUY
# THE SQUISHY FATHER FIGURE OF SVU
# THE GUY THAT STARTED OUT ON THE FIRST FUCKING SEASON OF THE ORIGINAL LAW AND ORDER
# IN 1990
# THE YEAR MY PARENTS GOT MARRIED
# I WAS NEGATIVE THREE YEARS OLD WHEN THIS CHARACTER CAME TO BE # AND HE WAS THERE UNTIL 2014
# TWENTY. FOUR. UNINTERRUPTED. CONSECUTIVE. YEARS.
# THAT’S LONGER THAN ALEX CABOT CASEY NOVAK AND RAFAEL BARBA COMBINED
# LONGER THAN FUCKING ELLIOT STABLER
# LONGER THAN FUCKING GEORGE WONG
# AS YOUR FAVES CAME AND LEFT THERE WAS ALWAYS CRAGEN
# CRAGEN WELCOMED THEM AND WATCHED THEM LEAVE
# HE EVEN OUTLASTED JOHN FUCKING MUNCH
# CRAGEN WAS AT MUNCH’S RETIREMENT PARTY
# STILL THE CAPTAIN
# AND HE WAS ROASTING THE FUCK OUT OF JOHN MUNCH WITH THAT WITTY BANTER
# HE BEAT OUT JOHN MUNCH FOR LONGEST TIME AS A DICK WOLF CHARACTER BY AT LEAST A FEW MONTHS AT SVU ALONE
# NOT COUNTING NINE YEARS ON THE ORIGINAL LAW AND ORDER
# AND I COULD TELL SO MUCH ABOUT YOU JUST FROM THE WRINKLES ON YOUR FOREHEAD AND THE GLISTEN IN YOUR EYES
# BECAUSE YOU’VE BEEN THROUGH SO MUCH
# I COULD TELL THAT WITH ALL YOU WENT THROUGH YOU WERE STILL TRYING SO FUCKING HARD
# AND YOU WERE SUCH A GOOD GUY
# YOUR WIFE DIED IN A PLANE CRASH
# YOU’RE A RECOVERING ALCOHOLIC
# THEY GAVE YOU A GIRLFRIEND AT THE END BUT YOU WERE SO LONELY FOR SO LONG
# AND AT THE END OF IT
# WHAT DID YOU GET?!
# YOU GOT THE TAIL END OF AN AMARO-CENTRIC EPISODE TO SAY GOODBYE
# YOU GOT FIVE MAYBE TEN MINUTES
# YOU AND THE SQUAD HAD BROUGHT AMARO BACK FROM THE BRINK OF LOSING HIS BADGE FOR THE UMPTEENTH FUCKING TIME

# AND YOU WERE SUDDENLY LIKE
# BTW GAIS I’M RETIRING
# AND THEY WROTE THIS CORNY-ASS SPEECH FOR YOU TO SAY
# THAT CORNY AS FUCK OUT OF CHARACTER SPEECH THAT EVEN AFTER-SCHOOL SPECIALS ARE LAUGHING AT
# I KNOW YOU CAN DO BETTER
# YOU WERE DOING BETTER SPEECHES AT MUNCH’S RETIREMENT PARTY
# YOU DIDN’T EVEN GET A RETIREMENT PARTY
# YOU DIDN’T EVEN GET A COMMERCIAL ON NBC SAYING ‘DON’T MISS CAPTAIN CRAGEN’S FINAL EPISODE’
# YOU DIDN’T GET ANY OF THAT
# YOU GOT A CHEESY SPEECH
# AND THE SQUAD APPLAUDED YOU FOR YOUR YEARS OF SERVICE AS WELL THEY OUGHT TO
# AND THEN YOU HAD THIS SCENE WITH LIV THAT WAS A MAJOR FUCKING IMPROVEMENT
# AND EVERYONE CRIED
# BUT YOU DESERVED BETTER
# YOU DESERVED SO MUCH BETTER
# CAPTAIN DON CRAGEN YOU ARE A FUCKING LEGEND AND YOUR PRESENCE AT SVU IS DEEPLY FUCKING MISSED
