“I want a good man for you, a brave man”

HE LOVES HER, OKAY? This scene was about loving his daughter (In spite he is not the most vocal person about it) who was sacrificing herself for the good of the family. A daughter that always thought she was born with the wrong gender and that thought he never fought for her. And now he is, saying he wants her happiness above the family’s reputation. And nothing will muddle this scene for me.

This scene made me my mom cry. It beats my dad looking over at me and going, “You look so old. When are you going to get married?”*

…It’s possible we’ve watched My Big Fat Greek Wedding a few too many times in my family.

Some Abandoned Fanfic Ideas Up for Grabs

Downton Abbey and Zombies

  • Oh, come on. You know you want it. — Lavinia comes back from the grave, and only Mr. Mason’s quick thinking and shotgun saves them all from being turned into zombies. When a zombie war breaks out in Europe, Matthew is sent off to fight, leaving Mary at home to defend her homestead. But the cure to zombie-ism may reside with the unborn baby of Anna and Mr. Bates, who was bitten by a zombie during his time fighting alongside Lord Grantham, but never succumbed to the symptoms. It’s up to Mary, Isobel, and Sybil Crawley to get the Bateses to the laboratory in London, and Mary won’t let anything stand in her way, not even the zombie of her ex-lover, Mr. Pamuk.

I AM LEGIT DYING RIGHT NOW OMG YES

first episode is probably going to be some kind of zombie apocalypse where they’re separated for months i mean you never know

The slight movements of their heads are the things that get me. Brilliant acting. And the unshed tears in her eyes.

The blinking is what gets me the most. The blinking and the whole I’m staring into your God damn soul is what KILLS me. Beautiful acting. We could not have better actors to steer our ship. They are so expressive.

And how they react to each other I think. The way they’re facial expressions change as the other one’s does. But yes, the blinking is so expressive.
Yes, also… their chemistry is CRAZY. And it’s so rare. You cannot find this kind of magic everywhere… Because let’s all note that it’s easy to have some spark when you are sticking your tongue into someone’s mouth (And some couples can’t even manage to do that… I could give you a list), but when you are apart physically, sometimes across a crowded room (Even if it’s not emotionally) and you can still cause a visceral reaction… Well, it’s a winner. Chemistry is personal in ways, but it’s also something that it’s consent. And the response people have to them is very telling. They sell the show for one reason.
Name one couple who has the same amount of chemistry they do. But in those conditions… Nothing but vulnerable eyes and longing.


Oh, man, Chuck and Sarah in their heyday? That was the definition of chemistry. Not saying that they’re superior to Matthew and Mary, but Matthew and Mary don’t have the market cornered on longing or wt/wt. The end of Lethal Weapon, gah.  Remember the end of Lethal Weapon, guys? And their flirting in First Date? And Marlin. The rooftop scene in Marlin. Their almost kiss in Gravitron. The end of Tom Sawyer.  Pretty much any courtyard scene until Pink Slip. 
Man, I miss those two. I should rewatch First Date. I think Casey would call it my duty as an American.

Day 3. Favourite guest star Character:
Evelyn Napier- I’m not completely sure as to why I like Evelyn Napier but I do. Firstly I think he is so much hotter than Pamuk, personal opinion. I’m also a huge shipper of him and Edith, I just think they would be a good couple. I really hope he is back in Season 3.

you mean EEEEEEEEEEEEEVElyn.
