It was like a reward for being sociable
A muggleborn and pureblood couple having their first child and the pureblood not knowing about ultrasounds so they don’t understand why their partner is dragging them to a muggle doctor until they get there and suddenly they see a physical picture of their newborn child and hear it’s little heartbeat and it’s better than any magic they’ve ever seen.

the US is unreal like girls cant wear shorts to school, you can literally lose your job for being gay, and unarmed black children are brutally murdered on the regular but old white ppl r still like “what a beautiful country. i can freely carry a gun for no reason and some of our mountains look like presidents. god bless”
no but bi harry deliberately fucking with ron like they’re at christmas dinner or w/e and harry just goes “you know ron i’m in love with your sister and everything but if bill was single…goddamn. i’d go there”
bill winks across the table at harry
"GODDAMN IT YOU CAN’T TAKE ALL MY SIBLINGS, HARRY."
"Don’t worry, Ron, you can keep Percy."
YOU CAN KEEP PERCY
Just in case anyone missed it…!
This post always resurfaces for a little bit every couple of months, which is great because I know that the prospect of it excites a lot of people and, as always, queer folks are thrilled to see some representation.
However, there is always the person who comments on the post saying ‘omfg if you knew anything about the comics you would know that this is a surprise to NOBODY’ and I’m just like, whoa, dude, don’t be that guy.
Because, before I had been tumblr for a little while, I DIDN’T know much about the Marvel comic universe and didn’t know about Loki’s long history of fucking around with his identity. Sure, I knew a bit about it in the actual mythology, but didn’t know that this was also played with in the comics. So this article was actually an interesting and enlightening piece of media.
SO NO, ACTUALLY, PLENTY OF FANS ONLY ACTUALLY KNOW ABOUT THE MOVIEVERSE AND THAT IS OKAY. THEY HAVE TO LEARN THIS SHIT SOMEWHERE. THIS HAS BEEN A PSA TO NOT BE A PEDANTIC ASS BECAUSE IT MAKES SOME PEOPLE WHO DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT IT FEEL BELITTLED EVEN THOUGH IT DOESN’T MATTER WHETHER YOU ONLY WATCH THE MOVIES OR WHETHER YOU BOIL THE COMICS DOWN INTO A BROTH AND INJECT THEM DIRECTLY INTO YOUR VEINS. THANKS.
AND ANOTHER THING just because it is canon in the comic universe has NEVER stopped directors and such from ignoring or erasing queer characteristics when they are transferred to the big screen, so IT IS STILL NEWS EVEN TO THE PEOPLE WHO READ THE COMICS

So I honestly can’t believe I’ve never seen anyone talking about the art direction of this scene. If I’m repeating something, Ah,well. But I’ve honestly never seen it pointed out that this is the very first time we see Mary, and there are three important things here:
Mary reaches for John’s hand. John takes it, of course—he is used to being offered comfort for his loss, by now—but he is not reaching out to her for comfort in his sadness. She is inserting herself into his grief. Reflexively, he lets her.
We only see the back of her. It’s unusual to introduce a major protagonist any other way than by showing their face pretty much immediately. A major antagonist, however…a baddie…well, they often are introduced in a cloud of cigarette smoke, from a distance, in the shadows, as a mysterious voice on a phone, or in some other way that doesn’t tell us right away who they are. Our first glimpse of Mary gives us only the most vague information about her. Obviously a woman, obviously someone John is close to, as he holds her hand. Other than that…who is she? We don’t know.
Finally, it’s no mistake she is wearing a long, grey coat which flares slightly from the waist, and a blue scarf. But they are paler shades of those colours than Sherlock’s coat and scarf were, because Mary is but a pale imitation of the person we are used to seeing standing beside John Watson (even once, when they were handcuffed together, holding John Watson’s hand in a manner similar to what we see here). Her coat and scarf look cheap, “less than,” and her denim jeans are “less” than Sherlock Holmes’s designer trousers. Her dark hat is a visual echo of Sherlock’s dark hair. This whole shot is set up not only to remind us that Sherlock used to stand here at John Watson’s side, but also that This is some lesser, fake, replacement-Sherlock standing at John Watson’s side, and whether consciously or unconsciously, John has chosen a pale imitation indeed.
HOW DID I MISS THIS WHEN I WAS WATCHING IT THE FIRST TIME?!
Also this fucker
who we are led to believe is a villain until the very end of the episode
