My big dream in life is to write a magical series of books called Twilight Potter and the Spiderwick Games that will touch the heart of every child in America for only 17.99. After which I shall retire to the Bahamas and never be heard from again.
Me : Oh no, why’d I get up this morning?
Boyfriend : To strike fear in the hearts of your enemies?
So like, what if John is just swimming in pain at the end of season two and all of a sudden Mary pops up and is like hiiii~! But John is having none of this eventhoughshe’ssoaddorableandohmygodnoooo. So he’s like my man pain is too epic for this super bubbly chick and even though he thinks she’s cute he’s just not ready yet because, god!
But Mary doesn’t care about the way he falls into silence sometimes, or about the days when the shadows seem deeper under his eyes. She saw what went down on the telly, she’s hip to what going on, and she doesn’t give two rats asses about what any of the tabloids say. And one day she shows up at the door to johns new place, and he’s had a terrible night because it was the first night officially not living in the place where he lived and loved with Sherlock, and here she is at the door at an ungodly hour of the morning, and he starts to say something about man pain and taking his time, and she’s pushing her way through and saying hey thats cool and all but maybe he wants to share her Starbucks? And then John notices she really does have Starbucks ….. So John lets her stay for a bit.
And after that she’s just THERE all of a sudden. Muscling John out doors on bad days, and cracking totally inappropriate jokes about his butt on good ones. She forces him to buy a pair of pants that are a bit tighter than he’s used to, even though he swears he feels ridiculous and is too old for them, just because she made him laugh till he turned red when he tried them on. In an especially meta moment she’s a Robert Downey jr fan, but this world doesn’t have Sherlock so it’s just Iron Man she’s a fan of. One year for halloween they celebrate american style and she shows up in this awful, I mean just god awful, Iron Man costume and John looks at this incredible dorky woman and thinks maybe this could be his life after all. I mean, he’s a man already living on after the end of the world so what does he have to really loose anyway?
And that’s when he realizes he might just really love her?
