Yuuri and Victor laying in bed, languidly kissing, Yuuri above Victor. Suddenly overwhelmed with love, stroking Victor’s cheek, and they both smile at each other. Warm, full of love, knowing they are where they are meant to be.Each other’s arms are their worlds.
what is the wedding bracelet thing about? in that last anon ask you answered? would you mind explaining, sorry to be a bother
ahere we go, i kinda wanna talk about this forever (definitely not a bother, anon!)
so, july 2014, Jay and Dan got married, and the entirety of one direction descended on the wedding. (except zayn, he was at a camp with perrie’s family, moving on)
liam was there with sophia (mr. and mrs. bond, anyone?)
niall was there playing some golf
and drinking some beer (as you do, when you are niall)
and then we have mr. harry styles, perfect little snowflake, getting his titties out, its a black tie posh wedding but i am cute, i dont care, my titties need air, dont you dare
just casually chatting to sophia about their boyfriends who are both in one direction, did you know?
i dont know if this funnier because of the poster’s url or in spite of it
the jay-dan wedding is important in the larry fandom because of the timing, it was in the middle of the louis-and-harry-hate-each-other-larries-ruined-their-friendship phase of PR, oh but look who jay was introducing to everyone nearest and dearest
i kind of love their relationship (oooh daisy and pheobe in the foreground being so beautiful)
and this beautiful moment nearly five years in the making:
this is louis’ grandad, jay’s father
they have met before, anne too
and grandpa has always loved louis’ boyfriend platonic bandmate bro pal
they’re exclusive members of the ‘cheer-on-louis-tomlinson-playing-football’ club
so this is extra extra beautiful, that while evryone else got smiles,harry got hugs
the rest of the tomlinsons contributed too; this is lottie sharing a photo of her “hair” (and her brother’s “harry”, but whatever)
the tomlinsons wouldnt know subtle if it hit them in the face, but i will move on to the wrist band
so all the wedding guests were apparently required to wear this wrist band, preumably for security reasons
and even after the wedding was over, harry kept his on for days
we get it harry, it is important to you, that wedding was important to you
antis ask, “was it? maybe he just couldnt be bothered to take it off, maybe he couldnt find scissors to shear it off.”
you see, in september 2014, louis plays a charity football match in the UK, and after the newly instigated larry talk since the wedding, harry needs to be seen away, NOT AT THE FOOTBALL MATCH.
sure enough, the day before the match, harry is mobbed at LAX (which celebrity goes through airports without security? i swear i want to have words with his management team)
and what is on his bag? the frayed wedding wrist band from jay’s wedding
let it sink in that - in the middle of concert, harry ran backstage to pull off the fraying wrist band and keep it safe, so that he can pull it out and tie it VISIBLY to his bag later - let that sink in for a little bit, go on, we have time.
I'm curious: what do you make of John's love for the hat? The metas I've heard identify the hat as the persona Sherlock feels like he has to put on for the rest of the world (a persona including his straightness), and that makes a lot of sense to me. But in that case, why would John always want him to wear it? Do you read that as John trying to avoid hoping for a romance between them? Or do you not interpret the hat that way? Thanks!
In direct reference to what I added to that Moffat quote, literally on the show Mary is John’s subconscious, so the direct conclusion to draw is that John wants Sherlock to wear the hat. That is the the surface level reading of TLD, so that’s what Moffat should have said if there was nothing else to Ghost!Mary’s existence.
Except we know that she does have more meaning than just being John’s subconscious, and so does Moffat, which is why he said Mary wanted Sherlock to wear the hat.. If Mary represents Heteronormativity (”I know what you could be now that I’m gone”), then
Ghost!Mary is John’s heteronormative thoughts and his ultimate struggle to overcome them - his unhappiness in the life he thought he wanted, his desire to cheat but it still not being enough, and his feelings that (gay) Sherlock and his (gay) love for him are “monsters”.
If we remember in TAB when John told Sherlock to “wear the damn hat”, that moment gave us helpful symbolism - the storyteller is asking Sherlock to be the man he writes about, not who he really is.
The hat is what the people want to see, but not who Sherlock really is. It masks Sherlock’s true (soft, feeling, gay) self. Sherlock throws it off the cliff into the waterfall in rejection of this fake identity, which John helps him realize.
But the hat returns in TLD as Ghost!Mary repeatedly suggests to John that Sherlock should put the hat back on, perhaps as a sort of: “LOL what are these, gay thoughts?? Wouldn’t I/the kids like him better if he was straight? LOL check yourself John.” But John finally comes to terms with these thoughts at the end of the episode, and they finally disappear when he realizes that it is what it is, and he can’t change Sherlock or his own feelings for his friend.
After John’s speech about not being able to be the man Mary(/heteronoramtivity) wanted him to be, putting the hat back on is a subtle say for Sherlock to complete the thought that was interrupted. It’s a way to show John that he is Sherlock’s “piece of that”, that he can be the man John writes on his blog, the man he thinks John wants him to be. But remember that “wear the damn hat” is something TAB John said, so TLD John has no idea what it means, which is probably why Sherlock is still wearing it the first time we see him again in John’s TFP dying horror-themed nightmare.
I’m going to throw my whole self off a damn cliff because of how fucking weird Hanzo and Genji dance?? I can’t believe that canonically Sojiro Shimada knows the entire choreography for Flashdance but didn’t pass on his knowledge and skills to his only two children??? Your sons dance like #that sir, hurry up and not be dead so you can knock some sense/rhythm into them.
Leaning out of the carriage you watched in horror as the Palace guards galloped after you.
“Hurry, Mr. Goose!” you urged him, you could hear the chimes of the village clock tower, anxiety gripped at your chest and time was running out.
“Come on! Hee-ya!” Mr Goose cracked the reins encouraging the mice/horses to move faster. The carriage went careening around the corner, the motion and speed of the horses caused the carriage to tip onto two wheels. You watched in shock as you could see how close you were to the edge of the cliff. Thankfully the carriage righted it’s self, throwing you back inside. You sat back trying to catch your breath in the madness around you. The chimes of the bell grew louder as your company raced through the village; the place guards hot on your tail.
