Mariska Hargitay, Chris Meloni, Law & Order: SVU, Old Couples


Have you long been harboring a crush on Detective Elliot Stabler? Or, more specifically, a crush on Detective Elliot Stabler's butt? You are not alone.

And now, there's a place for you to speak your truth and let your Stabler freak flag fly. That place, dear friend, is Tumblr.

There's a new obsession growing amongst the Tumblr ranks, and it's called These Are Their Stories. The meme, which is named after the infamous line from the Law & Order: SVU intro, is basically just a collection of awesome (and awesomely weird) pictures of Christopher Meloni, accompanied by the phrase "These are their stories." (Imagine your own dun dun following.) The trend has everything an SVU fan is looking for: Elliot Stabler, Elliot Stabler and Elliot Stabler. 

A good chunk of the images feature Meloni's best feature: his butt. (There is a God!) It really is the gift that keeps on giving, as you can see in the below pieces of fine art: 


But the meme has also started to expand to include pretty much anything Detective Stabler (or Chris Meloni himself) has ever done—whether that be taking a selfie, stretching, or, um, pole dancing?

He's a man of many talents, but first and foremost he's good at looking good. The man can even pull off a unitard! Three cheers for Elliot Stabler, and three more cheers for These Are Their Stories.
