Hi! I'm from the UK and my favourite things at the moment are Downton Abbey, Thor and the Avengers, The Hunger Games, Merlin and Doctor Who.

Links Some of my favourite ships include Mary and Matthew from Downton Abbey, Sif and Loki from Thor, Peeta and Katniss from The Hunger Games, Amy and Rory from Doctor Who and Snow White and William from Snow White and the Huntsman.

I’ll mainly be posting about my favourite shows and ships, and any other random things I like the look of!

Urgh, this new Mary/Gillingham is bringing back all my Mary/Matthew feels.

Cause Mary and Matthew’s story was just sparks galore and sooooo angsty and glorious and heartbreaking and beautiful. From that very first meeting to the final kiss, the chemistry in the air was crackling like wild fire. And yeah, ok… I still ship them a lot!

But Mary/Gillingham is NOTHING like this at all. It’s just flat with no sparks or wit or banter. Heck, she hasn’t even said anything mean to him yet! There’s just nothing between them at all like there was with Mary/Matthew. And no wonder Mary is unsure, it’s just the complete opposite of the greatest love story of her life! She needs someone who can give her even hald of what Matthew did - intrigue, challenge, wit, banter, chemistry, heck, anything!

And Gillingham gives her nothing but safety and stability. It’s like she thinks she should like him, so she’s trying to, but it’s just not really working! And their holiday away was just soooo cringeworthy and felt very OOC for Mary!

I think Blake is much more like Matthew and can offer her much more what she had with Matthew. It’s not the same, but he definitely ruffles her feathers a lot, which is a sure way to win her heart!

So whilst I’m still pretty sure it’ll be Blake in the end, I’m not sure how much cringeworthy Mary/Gillingham I can take!

Literally the only thing Blake and Matthew have in common is they argued with Mary. That’s it. Matthew respected Mary. He recognized her intelligence. When she decided to marry Carlisle he never implied she’d be shut down or have to hide her intelligence. He never sat around making bitchy remarks about her choices. He was a middle class man with a middle class perspective. Blake is an aristocrat who insults them while keeping hold of his future title and possible estate. I don’t love Tony but I don’t see Blake as remotely like Matthew.

You don’t need to sing Matthew’s praises to me! I think he was just so 100% perfect for Mary. It was such a shame they had to kill off his character.

But compared with Gillingham, I do think Blake has more in common with Matthew. He’s more stubborn, challenging and more likely to ruffle Mary’s feathers. He’s much more “new school” and modern/forward thinking than Gillingham.

To be honest though, I don’t really ship Mary with either Blake or Gillingham, but for me, Blake is a much more suitable match. I don’t think his character has been properly developed tbh. And he’s certainly not a main character like Matthew was. So I’m hoping we see more of his character and he starts to come across as a nicer guy. I think there’s the potential to have a lot more layers with his character. Unlike Gillingham.

It’s weird, because I much prefer Gillingham as a character (the stupid week away plot aside), but I just don’t like the idea of him and Mary much at all. IDK, maybe it’s just cause I’m still shipping Mary/Matthew so much! LOL!

 » The Honorable Evelyn Napier
 The truth is, Lady Grantham, I am not a vain man; I do not consider myself a very interesting person… but I feel it’s important that my future wife should think me so. A woman who finds me boring could never love me, and I believe marriage should be based on love… at least at the start.

It might be a long shot, but still hoping him and Edith get together some day. Or at least that we see him again this series!

They’d be perfect together! And, guess what Edith, he’s not even married!

Mary and Matthew Tv Tropes [x]

Love it!

All my favourite TV Tropes all in one perfect ship.

Cand I just pretend the current Downton is totally an AU or parallel universe or somethig, and the real Downton Abbey ended 5 minutes before the end of the Christmas special series 3?

"You came. To be honest, I wasn’t completely sure you would." "I’m glad to hear it. I should hate to be predictable."

Sorry, still drowning in the resurgent Mary/Matthew feels!

They were just my OTPs of OTPs!

Seriously Mary? Are you not getting it yet?

Firstly no one will ever make you as happy as the love of your life Matthew (sob, I still miss them soooo much!).

Secondly, if you’re not sure, I doubt a scandolous week away is going to make a difference. Heck, it’s almost desperate! Like Mary’s trying to find a reason to like him, like surely if she sleeps with him, she’ll want to marry him.

I just hope she realises he’s not the one for her soon, this storyline is not only tedious, but this episode very, very cringeworthy and out of charcter!

Just excuse me whilst I sit and cry in a corner over this beautiful ship that was just so perfect and epic and awesome and is no more.

Leaving us with stupid storylines like Mary/Gillingham! Urgh, why, Fellowes!

That’s it. That’s their relationship.

These two are definitely my favourite Downton Abbey pairing now! I don’t care about the romances, these two are comedy gold! They are totally best friends even if Violet would never admit it!

They are soooo funny together and I can’t wait to see what havoc Violet’s matchmaking causes!
