hey, i love you too. because that’s what sybil would have wanted.
Oh wow, this is really much, much too kind of you! Wow, you’re so nice.
“Shrimpy?” being a very, very small reference to Violet’s incident with the telephone. But ah, wow, this is really sweet of you. I’m sorry I don’t actually provide quality and only semi-bitter essays. Some of you guys are really far too nice to me, but all of this really does mean a lot to me. Thank you for putting up with all of my tedious choices!
(to be honest I just reblogged it after skimming through parts because I thought it probably had some relevant points - and then I went to a family shindig and was like ‘yeah I’ll read this later and formulate some opinions.)
(- but then I forgot about it and here we are. let me be a responsible blogger and read it and leave you some opinions because you are lovely.) (or just tell me more.)
HELLO ANON DID YOU COME HERE TO MAKE MY DAY, because congrats, you have !!
No, ah, thank you so much. This is astronomically kind of you and lmao wow it’s so reassuring to know that some people appreciate this weird, specific way I watch this soap opera. Who knows.
I DON’T EVEN KNOW IF I’M EMOTIONALLY INVESTED. I mean, I feel like I have to cry about this show to enter an emotional threshold, but then again I’m very invested in proper/at least consist narratives I don’t know. (There is still a part of me that would have been open to Mrs. Hughes dying of cancer but not in this season and would I still be watching the show without her we don’t know I’m sorry what am I saying.)
BUT WOW RESPECT FEELS GREAT THANK YOU SO MUCH I’M GLAD MY OVERWROUGHT, WORDY POSTS BRING YOU SOME HAPPINESS THAT’S THE GREATEST COMPLIMENT OF ALL TBQH.
I am so glad you asked. So glad I wrote over a thousand words (I’m so sorry).
just for you anon, I spent a few minutes in ms paint
this is it this is the total summation of my mary headcanon
so like, the summation of them in series three, basically
oh anon, I thought you’d never ask
since downtonline went down (rest in peace), I was basically reduced to what I have on hand/what I’ve edited and forced through inhumanly high levels of contrast (why didn’t you stop me god) in the past:
more facts than headcanon, but under a cut to save everyone the headache
putting this under a readmore because I can? in any event, I really hope we never get facts because like a) they’ll probably be inconsistent and b) I’m really picky about my headcanon at this point.
