Give me a character and I will answer:
I just did MM …but ya know… I gotta do Matthew!
Why I like him: He’s my Matthew. He’s kind, humble, and wears his heart on his sleeve. But he’s also smart, snarky, and hot af. He’s everything.
Why I don’t: He can wallow in his guilt for too long….
Favorite episode: S2 Christmas special. I loved him throughout this episode …especially “Lady Mary Crawley, will you do me the honour of becoming my wife?”
Favorite season: I will say …despite money plot stupidity and Mary’s bitchiness…::and that ending::… S3. I loved Matthew’s growth in this season into his fortune, his station in life, his love for Mary, and his confidence they could make it all work.
Favorite line: I have so many favorite lines. Dan’s delivery of certain lines however rise above the sometimes cliched, cringe worthy, creaky dialogue… “Don’t play with me…” “Oh God Mary I am so so sorry.” “I will love you until the last breath leaves my body.” “Robert the last time you made an investment you nearly ruined the family…” “Then Harry Stoke is a fool…”
“Hello my dearest little chap.” “Now come and kiss me.” But I truly love the obscure line right before as well: “Then I”ll get wet.”–it says everything about Matthew. He wants to stay with Mary. Be with her. |
OTP: Lady Mary Crawley
Brotp: Tom Branson
Head Canon: He secretly longs to whisk Mary away to New York City for a tryst before their wedding… ::so he does:: lol
Unpopular opinion: me agreeing with this statement: “that’s why it’s called an option.”
A wish: that we could have seen more of MM’s relationship from Lavinia’s death to the Christmas special opening to better understand how they came back together as friends.
An oh-god-please-don’t-ever-happen:: nothing bad happened… they lived happily ever after in my world.
