visiting mary

  • Watson: Gosh! It's so weird how every time I go visit Mary Morstan, Holmes is agitated and miserable when I return. And he doesn't seem to be sleeping or eating. He must be really wrecked about this case.
  • Holmes: *looks into the camera like he's on The Office*

anonymous asked:

my aunt (married to my mother's brother) and her four sisters are all named Mary! Each is specifically named after one Visitation of Mary.

That’s actually sort of interesting, if crazy

Okay but imagine this

-Chat Noir and Marinette become friends (idk how- they just start hanging out)
-Chat Noir regularly visits Mari
-One day after an akuma fight, Chat decides to visit Mari but she’s not there so he goes into her room to wait for her
-Cue Lady Bug swinging in through Marinette’s trapdoor
-She sees Chat and is internally screaming cause W H A T
-Meanwhile Chat, the oblivious kitty as ever is like, “Woah Lady Bug, you know Marinette, too? Want to wait on her with me??”
-Lady Bug @ Lady Bug: G E T O U T
-I just think it would be hilarious

Miraculous AU

So what if Chat became a super hero before Ladybug did, and he had been doing it for a few months when shy little Ladybug came in and made his job 10x easier. And when she first starts to help out, she’s super shy, blushy, and adorably quiet, and Chat finds it super endearing and cute. But bonus! Chat visits Mari and starts falling for her too, and flirting with her at school, and Mari does the same (but with Chat) and they’re just so conflicted.

His Majesty King Philippe and Her Majesty Queen Mathilde of Belgium will make a state visit to Denmark on 28 and 30th March 2017.

The forthcoming state visit aims to strengthen the already strong ties between Denmark and Belgium. The close connection between the two royal families that descended from the Glücksburg line dates back to the year 1863. Thus attended the Belgian royal couple in celebration of HM the Queen’s 75th birthday in 2015 and HM Queen Mathilde is also godmother to HRH Princess Isabella .

2.04 - There’s just a few things from this episode relevant to s12, other than the obvious surface level stuff, like this entire hunt springing from the fact that Sam wanted to visit Mary’s grave.

And of course Dean notices something strange around another grave, and he just can’t let it go. Hijinks ensue.

Sam doubts everything about the case, from whether it’s even a case at all, but Dean’s doing all the legwork, asking all the right questions (even when he’s doing it in a blunt and unprofessional way):

SAM: I think I know what’s going on here. It’s the only reason I went along with you this far.

DEAN: What are you talking about?
SAM: This is about Mom’s grave.
DEAN: (scoffs) That’s got nothing to do with it.
SAM: You wouldn’t step within a hundred yards of it. Look. Maybe you’re imagining a hunt where there isn’t one so you don’t have to think about Mom. Or Dad. You wanna take another swing? Go ahead, if it’ll make you feel better.
DEAN I don’t need this crap. (DEAN grabs his jacket and keys and starts for the door.)
SAM: Dean, where’re you going?
DEAN: I’m going to go get a drink. Alone.

And of course, Dean DOESN’T go get a drink. He goes snooping around on the case again. Alone. Which is why I think Dean wasn’t storming off to get drunk at a bar in 12.14. He SAYS he’s going out for a drink just as an excuse to get some alone time, go for a drive, feel like he’s doing something productive.

But Dean doesn’t tend to imagine hunts where there aren’t any. Just like in 12.14. He readily admitted he knew that one “hunt” was nothing, but he was just restless and antsy and tired of being stuck in the bunker with nothing to do. But here in 2.04? He’s insisting there’s a hunt, because he KNOWS there’s a hunt.

Sam finally believes Dean when he comes back after all that snooping with enough evidence to convince him. They dig up the girl’s coffin, but it’s empty and carved with symbols Dean recognizes from her father’s house, Dean absolutely goes off on the guy, finally blinded by his own emotions about John’s death that it’s Sam who recognizes the fact that the girls father is entirely innocent.

It’s this overreaction that prompts Sam to shake Dean up a little here:

SAM: You’re on edge, you’re erratic - except for when you’re hunting, because then you’re downright scary. You’re tailspinning, man. And you refuse to talk about it and you won’t let me help you.
DEAN: I can take care of myself, thanks.
SAM: No, you can’t. And you know what? You’re the only one who thinks you should have to. You don’t have to handle this on your own, Dean, no one can.
DEAN: Sam, if you bring up Dad’s death one more time I swear…
SAM: Stop. Please, Dean, it’s killing you. Please. We’ve already lost Dad. We’ve lost Mom. I’ve lost Jessica. And now I’m going to lose you too?
DEAN: We better get out of here before the cops come. I hear you. Okay? Yeah, I’m being an ass. And I’m sorry. But right now we’ve got a friggin’ zombie running around, and we need to figure out how to kill it. (SAM laughs.) Right?

And no, that doesn’t magically fix everything, but at least they’re on the same page again. Part of the reason why Dean was “tailspinning” in the first place was the fact that Sam didn’t trust him that this really was a hunt. He spent so much energy just trying to convince Sam that he wasn’t crazy, that he wasn’t seeing things, or wishing it was a hunt because he was so messed up about John’s death.

But in the end, after the Bad Thing is put back in her box, Dean does have a little moment.

DEAN: You can’t tell me there’s not a connection there. I don’t know how the demon was involved. I don’t know how the whole thing went down exactly. But Dad’s dead because of me. And that much I do know.
SAM: We don’t know that. Not for sure.
DEAN: Sam … You and Dad … you’re the most important people in my life. And now … I never should’ve come back, Sam. It wasn’t natural. And now look what’s come of it. I was dead. And I should have stayed dead. You wanted to know how I was feeling. Well, that’s it. So tell me. What could you possibly say to make that all right?

And I think Mary’s feeling a little bit of this (minus the guilt from believing someone else traded their life for hers, but still… this whole “I never should’ve come back,” and “what’s dead should stay dead” are things she’s expressed herself in s12. And to think, this entire episode took place around her empty grave (because there was nothing left of her to bury). At least Mary knows how and why she was brought back. All she has to deal with are the consequences of her having been dead for more than 30 years, and everything that’s happened in her absence.

I hope they do a spin off manga about Erwin’s life.

What happened to his mother. What his bond with his father was like, how he was in class. How he reacted to his fathers death and where he lived until he was old enough to join the military.

His trainee time. The first time he met Nile and Mike, how they became friends. Seeing him excelling in all subjects. The three of them visiting the bar Marie worked at. The awkward love triangle between him, Marie and Nile. Mike making fun of them.

When he and Mike joined the SC and Nile the MP, the possible arguments they had about this.

Seeing Erwin rising in the ranks. How he killed titans and how he came up with new strategies. How he and Keith Shadis worked together.

The first time he met Hanji. How their bond developed. How he cultivated Mike and Hanji’s talents and built up a bond of trust.

We’ve seen how he met Levi. But afterwards, when Levi decided to stay in the SC. How their relationship developed. How Levi went from not liking Erwin, to completely trusting him.

His relationship with Nile changing, how they went from best friends to what they are now.

Erwin becoming Commander. Him further developing strategies, getting funding for the SC. Him giving Hanji, Mike and others the space and resources to develop their special talents. Him dealing with the stress of the job.

And most of all, a look inside his mind. How does he come up with these brilliant tactics? Him struggling with the guilt of seeing his comrades die. Him reacting to Mike’s death. His day to day interactions with his collegues.

Erwin, Mike, Hanji, Levi and the other vets having fun on their rare moments off.

I just want to see all of this. But it’ll probably never happen.
