Mabastian Appreciation Week: Day 2∟Favourite Scene scene/moment

"Away where?""Far.""That’s my destination as well."

I debated between three scenes, but ultimately, this scene from Fated won out. The dialogue in this scene is important, but it’s everything that underlies that words that makes it meaningful. There’s unspoken acceptance, understanding, trust, and respect here. Mary expects Bash to talk her out of leaving, just as everyone else has, but he offers her something else instead: support. She needs that more than anything else and he offers it without hesitation. She says “I’m leaving” and he nods like yes…let’s go. His favor in court is hanging in the balance, but he offers his protection anyway. And she’s also taking a risk by running away with him, but she allows it. Because she trusts him, she trusts him with her life—she trusts him to take her to Scotland,  she trusts that he will keep her safe. It’s that instinctive trust and respect that is so vital to this ship and these characters. And that’s why it’s my favorite scene, because of these underlying things within it. Also, can we get a parallel to this scene when Mary/Bash leave for Scotland after Francis dies? Because that would be spectacular.

Mabastian Appreciation Week: Day 1
Why do you love them

"You would do anything for them in spite of the risk to yourself. I think it’s noble.”

"Just trust me. You can do this.”
"I jumped off a cliff with you, and I survived. Now let me take the lead."

Why do I love Mary/Bash? Let me count the ways. But really, I had to think long and hard about what I love the most about this ship because there’s just so much to love about them. But what it all boils down to is this: mutual respect and trust. The trust is instinctive, it was there from the moment they met and it only grew over the course of the season. Mary always knew she could trust Bash, not only with her life but also with herself—her thoughts, her feelings. Whether it be good or bad, she trusts Bash enough to be herself. And even when things broke down between them, that remained in tact. Because he knows her and he doesn’t judge her for her choices, even the ones he disagrees with. And he supports her unconditionally. Because he has an incredible amount of respect and trust in her. He knows she’s her own woman, her own queen, and needs his support/trust/respect more than his ridicule.

But it isn’t all one-sided, Mary also sees and respects who Bash is. She knows he’s noble, kind, and brave. She has seen it through his actions, towards her and his family. And he trusts her with the secrets of his family, secrets that could get him killed. He also trusts her enough to be completely honest with her, something he has been unable to do with Francis or Henry (even before the king’s madness, he kept his pagan ties a secret). It’s this instinctive trust and respect that I hope continues throughout the show because it’s what makes this pairing so special, especially in this court of lies and deception.

MABASTIAN APPRECIATION WEEK:

I’ve seen many of these appreciation weeks but i didn’t see much Mabastian,  so thebashtille and I bashooking have decided to plan one about this perfect otp Mary and Bash.

The “rules” are simple: every day for 7 days starting Friday, April 18th (next week) you make a post (it can be a text post, gifs, graphic or anything) that shows the following things:

  • Day 1: Why do you love them.
  • Day 2: Favorite scene/moment.
  • Day 3: Little Mabastian Things (like the things they do as kissing, touching,gazing at each other..etc..)
  • Day 4: Favourite song moment OR a song that reminds you of them.
  • Day 5: Favourite things they said to one another.
  • Day 6: Favourite Episode
  • Day 7: Free Choice ( can be AU meme,gifs,graphics..etc..)

the tag for the week is #mashaw put this tag in the first 5 (cause we can only track the first 5 tags on tumblr)

please reblog this post to promote this week, because the more people participating, the better it is ! message me if you had any questions or ideas :)

let’s enjoy and participate (even if you can’t make an edit!)

(via thebashtille)

crowd-of-stars asked: No writers, you can't convince me that she loves Francis more. Not when she giggled when Bash called her wife and touched her lips to keep his kiss. Like she couldn't contain her feelings. You can't convince me that the girl who proposed to Bash and almost wept when he dropped to one knee is a girl who always had Francis first and foremost in her heart. You can't convince me that he doesn't challenge her, exhilarate her, and inspire her to be just Mary--wild and free. I reject your 1x13 canon.
