When I’m on the cusp of falling into despair over Mash, I think back on the wise words of Logan Echolls:
"No one writes songs about the ones that come easy".
Just keep repeating that mantra my Mash family. We can get through this together! It’s always darkest before the dawn.
These two references (Reign+VM!) together make my life. And I must add this:
"Spanning years and continents…lives ruined, bloodshed…EPIC."
small things to do that make your mind feel clearer
- close all your internet tabs except the one you’re using
- delete all your text messages
- delete negative people from social networks
- throw some things away. just throw them away
- tidy your desk. make a blank surface
- drink 3 glasses of water
- open the curtains
- wash your face and brush your teeth
I think, when you boil it down to the bottom, we aren’t upset about Mary marrying Francis, we’re upset that she’s so happy about it while Bash’s entire life has been shot to hell as a result.
She made a careless, childlike choice, under pressure and not carefully considered at all. She wasn’t thinking about Bash at all when she made it, but I believe Bash will probably be ALL she can think about in the coming days.
I hope when she realizes what she’s done to him (pulling him into this plot and then abandoning him without a second thought at the end of it), the doubt and regret is absolutely exquisite.
