history meme(french edition) → free choice: relationships (2/?) Claude de Guise and his daughter Marie.
“[Claude and Antoinette] oversaw their daughter’s upbringing themselves and kept her close in a way that many other parents and children of their class must surely have envied. For the next four years, Marie was Claude and Antoinette’s only child and revelled in having her beloved parents’ attention entirely on herself. While growing up, Marie worshipped her charismatic father more than any other man in the world; when the devastating news arrived of her beloved father’s death on 12 April 1550, her mind was made up and she began to make plans for departure.” – M.

My favorite Mary moment was in The Sign of Three when they are outside the hotel door and Sherlock kisses her on the forehead. That scene really showed me how close Mary and Sherlock were, he doesn’t give that kind of physical contact to just anyone. I also loved the cute face Mary gave when Sherlock kissed her, such a sweet scene.
