the only scene that mattered!!!!!

It doesn’t matter if it’s only a small scene, some people forget we still have a lot to fight for in the LGBT community. In at least 73 countries being gay still a crime, until 1973 being gay was considered a disorder and a lot of people still fighting for the “gay cure” and I know sometimes we act like we have it all, the world doesn’t have homophobia anymore and we already have the representation we need but this is not true.

Trini it’s the first superhero who is queer in the big screen and this is important, don’t ignore it by saying “It’s only a small scene”, because neither way it’s really important for us. This doesn’t mean we will stop fighting for more, it just means we shouldn’t erase her importance just because she won’t have a big coming out or openly talk about her sexuality the whole movie.

Mulder softly crooning, “Hey now, none of that…” and then actually reaching to cradle his newborn son will never cease to be my undoing. I have a physical reaction. I can’t watch it anymore. It lives in my dreams. 

Every year, a Valentine’s day show is put on for any student of Goldcrown Town Academy to join in with their talents. Art students and drama students work together to bring beautiful scenes to life.

No matter their skill, only a ballet dancer truly in love can participate. Mr. Cat himself hand-picks each student to ensure each dancer is putting their full, loving heart into the show. 

and one year, Duck herself got to be in the show as one of the Paper Heart dancers.

In case you were wondering what happened to Alex’s backbone in season eleven, 
apparently he left it somewhere in season ten.

John and Mary’s marriage

Okay, so consider this: 

If we take John’s halfhearted forgiveness scene at face value (and that’s a BIG if, but let’s just say we do), and if we take his burning of the thumb drive at face value (again, a huge if!), this is what that entire scene actually said: 

John told Mary that the only thing that mattered was that she keep lying to him. She told him that if he read the thumb drive, he wouldn’t love her any more, and this is him agreeing. In burning it, he is literally saying, “you’re right: I don’t think I’ll love the real you. Our marriage can only work if we both pretend you’re someone else.” That’s the meaning of “is Mary Watson good enough for you?”. It means that it doesn’t matter what her real names are, first or last, because he doesn’t want to know. He tells her in this scene, with these actions, that he believes her that he wouldn’t like who she really is. She started out by lying about absolutely everything to him, and he tells her that the only way their marriage can work at all is if they both go on ignoring her real identity. 

Mary gave John the thumb drive because Sherlock had already found out for him that she wasn’t anything like what she’d told him she was. She had no option. Yet she “bravely” handed over this information, which she conveniently just happened to have on her, as though in an act of courageous self-sacrifice. It was nothing of the sort; she’d been found out and backed into a corner. They could have taken it from her at will at any point. But John had already bracketed her with the criminals he and Sherlock usually dealt with, put himself in a group with Sherlock and Mary in a group with the scum and told her they would decide whether they wanted her or not. So she tried to spin the gesture of giving him the thumb drive as some sort of bravado on her part, because gaslighting and mind-fuckery is Mary’s entire game. 

And even given all of that, John rejected it. He took her “brave gesture” and put it in the fire and said he didn’t want it. 

People usually choose to lower their barriers and reveal themselves to the people that they love and it’s meant to be taken as a gift, an act of trust. John clearly established, by rejecting the “gift” of her information, that no trust can exist between them. It’s too late to start over and try to establish something genuine, something that he can believe in. “Is Mary Watson good enough?” he asked, the “no, don’t tell me who you really are; I don’t want to know” openly implied. He put Mary’s brave gift into the flames and told her to stick to her deceptions because he would rather stomach a mountain of lies than one shred of truth about the real her. 

That’s a pretty powerful rejection.
