Yeah, social media’s weird. You know, it’s like we’re not even us when we’re on it. It’s like we’re the thing we wish we were. Or even worse, we’re the thing that we think others want us to be.
Dr Iggy Frome - New Amsterdam
Entertainment Spotlight: Tyler Labine, New Amsterdam
Tyler Labine, who you may know as the voice of Hunk from Voltron: Legendary Defender, plays Dr. Iggy Frome on the NBC drama New Amsterdam, which returns for season 2 on September 24th. He also starred in BBC’s Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, Hulu’s Deadbeat, NBC’s Animal Practice, and The CW’s Reaper, among many other things. On the big screen, Labine’s most recent film was Escape Room, and some of his additional credits include Tucker and Dale vs. Evil, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, and Flyboys. Tyler took some time out his his extremely busy schedule to answer our hard hitting questions.
How has Dr. Frome changed from the beginning of Season 1 into Season 2?
In a lot of ways actually. The scrutiny he was under at the end of Season 1 and the reflection about his methods deeply affected him. Maybe more than he will let on. But as an actor portraying a man who had his beliefs rocked to the core about how to deal with his young patients, it really resonates with me. So you will see some very different tones to Iggy. Maybe not on the surface but there will be an undercurrent that I’m bringing to him this season that will feel quite trepidatious at times; a little gun shy if you will. Also, Iggy is feeling some BIG feelings about expanding his family. That will be a big thread this season.
If you had a catchphrase, what would it be?
“Welcome to The Frome Zone” Haha. It’s supposed to be pure cheese btw. Ironically bad.
Without any spoilers, what scene or moment from New Amsterdam Season 2 are you most excited for fans to see?
I have a big moment with Martin, Iggy’s hubby, in episode 1 that I think is great. It’s very sweet and telling. I think we all have wanted more of Iggy’s family. This is definitely the kick off point and early indication that more IS coming! I also have a case with an 11 year old psychopath in episode 205. Intense and difficult material.
What advice would you like to give to Dr. Frome?
Learn to let others help him when he needs it. He’s always so busy helping everyone else that I feel like he neglects himself. That doesn’t lead to anything good in my opinion.
If you could take a masterclass on any subject, what would you learn and who would you want to teach you (e.g. a cooking class with Gordon Ramsay)?
I would want to take a masterclass on beat making. Hip hop production. I already do that and have done that for almost 15 years but I feel like I still have so many technical questions and problems and walls that come up for me. I would love to be taught by the greatest to ever do it. Jamie Meline. Otherwise known as EL-P. One half of the run the Jewels and the most influential hip hop artist in my life. A genius.
What’s the most memorable thing that’s ever happened to you on set?
Getting buried alive for my series Deadbeat in Hulu. If you haven’t watched that show, you really should. It’s brilliant in so many ways. I had to do a scene where we were paying homage to Kill Bill. That infamous burial. And they put me in a casket made out of particle board and just….buried me. Under about a foot of loose soil. It was surreal. I then had to punch my way through the lid of the casket and break out. It was already scored so I could break through easily but on the first take they got about half way through covering the casket and I discovered that I am claustrophobic. Or maybe I just went to a very dark place. I freaked out and had them stop and get me out. Then we did it all over again. Haha. It’s in the show. It’s all there. It’s all real.
If you were to come up with an alternate title for New Amsterdam, what would it be?
The Little Medical Director that could. Too wordy? How about The DamFam? Too brief? I give up.
What’s something that most people don’t know about you?
That I’m a rapper. I know that sounds funny and like I’m joking but I’m not. I am a rapper. Have been since I was 15. Not gonna stop anytime soon either. Also that I’m a lefty. And I’m Canadian.
Thanks so much, Tyler! Season 2 of NBC’s New Amsterdam premieres September 24th at 10pm.

Pleasant SurprisesHi guys~! So I know I was gonna post something with my OC before I posted another fanfic but I just finished this one and I’m so happy with it that I just had to post it now 🥺! It was supposed to be posted for valentines day lol. Hopefully you guys like it~!Genre: FluffWord Count: 1,122Warnings: None
Charlotte was nervous. Very nervous. She was currently on her way to the Black Bulls hideout with a small box in her hands, today was a day she had been somewhat dreading yet at the same time very excited for. It was Valentine’s Day. Today was the day for couples to show their appreciation for each other, which made no sense to her since you’re supposed to show your significant other love and appreciation every day. But nonetheless her girls had gone out with their boyfriends and partners to celebrate and give them chocolates and other gifts. Which is exactly what Charlotte was going to do as well. The girls had somehow convinced her that today was the day to tell Yami how she felt, and she couldn’t really disagree, it was about time she finally told him.
So after all the girls had left she herself decided to head out and buy chocolates, even though Charlotte wasn’t actually sure if he liked chocolate, so to be on the safe side she also bought a bottle of wine. She was sure he’d at least like one of them. Hopefully. Charlotte looked up as the Black Bulls hideout came into view, her heart beginning to race as she walked closer and closer to the door.
‘What if he doesn’t like either one? What if he isn’t here? What if he rejects my confession?’ Charlotte’s mind raced the closer she got, every fiber of her being screaming at her to turn around and run back to her headquarters. But, she pushed all those thoughts away and held her head up high as she stood in front of the door. She was going to confess today, otherwise, she never would. With that thought in mind she firmly knocked on the door and waited.
‘That’s strange,’ Charlotte suddenly thought with a frown. ‘It’s very quiet.’ She listened very carefully and found she was correct, there wasn’t a single sound from inside the base. Which was unusual. Normally the hideout was very loud and rambunctious, a wall or two would have already been broken by the time she had made it to the door. Charlotte smoothed out her blue and white dress before knocking on the door again, but this time much louder. She looked around, the sun was beginning to set, she had left the winery much later than she had anticipated so it was probably around 6 or 7 o’clock in the evening by now. Charlotte let out a small defeated sigh.
‘He must’ve gone out with someone else. I should’ve known better than to come here, how stupid can you be Charlotte!’ She scolded herself as she began to turn around and head back home when she suddenly heard the door open.
“ Sorry I was in the can, what’d you wa- oh.” Yami began before realizing it was Charlotte who was knocking. “ Hey there Prickly Princess, what’re you doing all the way out here?” He asked as he leaned against the door frame, she turned around and swallowed the lump in her throat. How was it he was able to make being sexy look so easy?
“ U-Uh…um well,” Charlotte started nervously, she quickly hid the bottle of wine and box of chocolates behind her so Yami wouldn’t see. “ I uh…came here to see you actually.” She finished softly as a soft blush shone on her cheeks and she looked down at her shoes.
“ Ok, did something happen?” He asked her with a small frown. It was very unlike her to just suddenly show up.
“ Oh no nothing happened. Not that I’m aware of anyway.” She said quickly, knowing her luck though, they would suddenly be called away and she would have to hold off confessing to him. Again. “ But I did have something to give you.”
“ Ok what is-.” Yami began to ask when suddenly Charlotte shoved two items into his chest, he blinked and held them. It was a bottle of expensive wine and a box of chocolates. To say he was confused was a bit of an understatement. “ Uh, did one of your girls ask you to deliver these?” He asked, confusion in his voice as well as on his face.
“ N-No of course not! They’re…they’re from me!” Charlotte told him, her face becoming even more red than what it already was. She had her arms crossed and wouldn’t look him in the eye.
“ From you?” Yami repeated as he looked from the items in his hands to her and back again. He had known today was Valentine’s Day because his squad had all gone out to celebrate. But didn’t women usually give these to the guys they were interested in? So why would Charlotte be giving him these? Oh. Oh! He blinked as it finally dawned on him. ‘She was trying to confess her feelings for me!’
“ W-Well now that I’ve delivered those items, I should be going.” Charlotte suddenly announced as she turned to walk away.
“ Hey Charlotte,” Yami called after her, she turned to look at him. “ Y’know, it’d be a real shame to have to drink this all by myself.”
“ You could always share it with Vanessa or someone else.” Charlotte told him with a shrug, clearly she didn’t get the hint. He rubbed the back of his head a little nervously.
“ I don’t want to drink with Vanessa or anyone else, I want to drink it with you.” He told her a very small blush creeping onto his cheeks, he looked at her long enough to see his statement had surprised her before he looked away again. “ So why don’t you come in and have a glass or two? We can just talk and hang out.” He muttered before suddenly seeing movement out of the corner of his eye. What happened next completely shocked him.
Charlotte had suddenly rushed up to him, wrapped her arms around his neck, and kissed him firmly. Yami was stunned but quickly recovered enough to wrap his arms around her waist and kiss her back. He took note that her lips were just as soft as rose petals, which didn’t really surprise him that much considering her magic and how much she resembled a rose. Just as suddenly as she had kissed him she pulled away.
“ That sounds like a good idea captain Sukehiro.” Charlotte said with a smile, she pulled the bottle of wine out of his hand and walked past him into the hideout. Yami let out a soft chuckle before turning around and following her inside. This woman was full of surprises and honestly?
He wouldn’t have her any other way.

Warnings: Mentions of a threatening letter and a gun, but noone gets hurt :)
Charlotte Roselei was a famous singer who performed in different bars in town. Knowing she was really popular, especially among men, the police department sent Yami Sukehiro as an undercover cop to one of her shows after Charlotte received a threatening letter.
The club was rather dark when Yami entered it, and full of smoke since a lot of men smoked cigarettes in their chairs. Yami looked around until he finally found Charlotte sitting by the stage in a pretty red and blue dress while she was currently laughing with one of the band members. “She really is pretty”, Yami thought because he never saw her life. He sat down at the bar and ordered a beer as his and Charlotte’s eyes met. She was twirling her hair around her finger as she nodded at what her conversation partner said but her eyes stayed fixated at Yami. Charlotte discovered he was the police man the deputy chief promised to send to the club. A little smile appeared on Yami’s face as he nodded towards her direction and Charlotte nodded back. She concentrated on the conversation again but she could feel Yami’s eyes on her.
The lights got darker and Charlotte went behind the stage to prepare her show. When she finally got on stage everyone shouted for her and clapped. Charlotte was sitting on a stool as the sound of her voice filled the room. Merely a few whistles here and there were heard. Yami was really mesmerized by the sound of Charlotte’s voice that he almost forgot what was he there for. He stood up to walk slowly around the room, checking out every man who might seem suspicios. He arrived at the stage when a man entered the room with a long dark coat and a hat that covered his face. Yami looked up to Charlotte who didn’t seem bothered but when the man opened his jacket and put his hand in the inner corner Yami jumped on the stage and threw himself on top of Charlotte to drag her backstage. Shots were heard as Yami kept Charlotte still in his arms. “Are you okay?”, he said breathlessly and Charlotte just nodded, clinging onto his arms as she tried to calm down. “Thank you”, she whispered as she realized that Yami just saved her life. Yami smiled at her before he looked back to see if everything’s safe. Two police men brought the man down who now got handcuffs on. Noone was hurt luckily, only the stage was damaged.
Charlotte’s face turned red as she realized that Yami still held her by her waist. “Oh right, sorry”, Yami chuckled when Charlotte slowly shoved his hands away.
Charlotte was in her wardrobe when she heard a knock on her door. “Come in”, she said and through her mirror she could see it was Yami. “Just wanted to check if everything’s alright”, he said as he casually leaned against the door frame. “I am, thank you”, Charlotte said and offered him something to drink. The two chatted for a while and Yami promised to protect her again if needed.
So I decided to go ahead and make a small masterlist even though I don’t have much written yet hehe. I figured it’ll make things a little easier for people to read.
A Night to Forget (fic)
The ‘Boyfriend’ (fic)
Charlotte: I’ve been dropping them the most insanely obvious hints for, like, a year now. No response.
Yami: Wow, they sound stupid.
Charlotte: But they’re not. They’re really smart actually. Just… dense.
Yami: Maybe you need to be more obvious? Like, I don’t know… “Hey! I love you!”
Charlotte: I guess you’re right.
Charlotte: Hey, Yami, I love you.
Yami: See? Just like that.
Charlotte: Holy fucking shit.
Yami: If that flies over their head, then sorry, Charlotte, but they’re too dumb for you.
