Mash Appreciation Week
Day One » Why do you love them

 I think I love them because they have everything I look for in a fictional couple. There’s the friendship, the “I want but I can’t” element, the attraction, the understanding, the mutual trust, the way they gravity around each other without ever be able to let go completely and all the little things that just say there’s always something between them. They weren’t supposed to fall for each other, but they did, despite all the odds and the situation they lived in. They had to marry, but in the end they wanted to, because they realized they were really in love with each other. They’ve fight for each other, saved and helped each other, with such passion and devotion and open hearts, that my heart melted and bled and screamed at each one of their scenes together. Nothing was boring, even the worst parts, even the angst, I loved it all, because “I love you, I do” and everything was worth that single sentence that just spoke the ultimate truth. They had my heart from the very start and I know that my heart never betrays me, even if sometimes it hurts like hell. But the beauty of a true otp is this, too. There’s no love without pain and Mary and Bash just have it all, so good times or bad times, they will remain the ones who are able to give me emotions, and I am grateful for that.

MABASTIAN APPRECIATION WEEK:

  • Day 1: Why do you love them

So, I really don’t know where to start, I mean, I don’t actually know why I ship them so hard as I do, but here I go

Some people say Mash is too forced, but I just can’t stand at them, I mean, Mary always knew she was going to marry Francis, at least, it was what she believed. She prepared her whole life to him, and that’s why I believe she wasn’t ready to love someone else, but the point is that, even knowing Bash was never an option to her, that he was just a bastard, when she meets him she start to have feelings for him. And we can see their development, of course not as Frary’s one because in the fist episodes, they focused in Francis and Mary, but her feelings start to grow since episode one, and they kiss after five episodes, and then they give another kiss four episodes after, so I love to rewatch reign and pay attention to their little moments that mean a lot, to me.

I also love how Mary is “Just Mary” When she is with Bash. I mean it’s not like she forget about her responsabilities as queen, but she just open her heart to him and he accepts her opinions and support her, and listen to her. All the times she was sad and he cheered her up. THE LOOKS THEY GIVE AT EACH OTHER, how they can communicate by looks, it’s really painful.

And just to lock this post, a quote from Johnny Depp that I ALWAYS relate with them: "If you love two people at the same time, choose the second. Because if you really loved the first one,  you wouldn’t have fallen for the second". - JD  I believe that it fits with their relationship because Mary just wanted to love someone and be loved, she wanted to be happy, so she made an effort to love her future husband because she wanted him to put her above anything, even knowing that would be hard. And Bash gives that to her, He loves her more than ANYTHINGand he would do anything for her, but the time she spent with him was so short comparing to the time she spent with Francis, and she opened so much her heart to Francis, that she was afraid of loving someone else.

I feel like Frary is way more forced than Mash because I mean, if Bash was the prince, and Francis the bastard, she was going to fall in love with Bash first…So she fell in love with Francis simply because she did not want to suffer, we can say she loved “the crown” and not “the man”… (she fell in love with Francis because of the circumstances)… But she just start to have feelings for Bash even knowing he was never going to be an option to her (or think, bcs later he turns into her only option).

That’s why I ship Mash, because he is her perfect choice

MABASTIAN APPRECIATION WEEK

~ Day OneWhy I love them

God, I don’t know why this is so hard to answer. I guess I never really thought about why i love them. I just do. And I think that may be essential to it as well. Does love need a reason? 
I shipped both Frary and Mabastian in the beginning but it wasaround ep 8/9 when I became a full fledged Mash shipper. Don’t get me wrong, Frary is still amazing and i respect all the people who ship them and I get why, but Mabastian to me is just so much more captivating. 
The way they fight with one another, the way they fight for each other, the fierceness of their protectiveness over one one another, the loyalty, the respect. And do not even get me started on the longing looks. The way Mary accepts Bash for everything that he is and the way Bash would do anything for Mary. The fact that they each have a smile that is only revealed when they are around each other.
I think Bash allows Mary to be herself when she is around him, that she is more than just a queen, and vise versa. Mary makes Bash feel like he’s more than just the King’s bastard son. I think they were both a bit lost in France.Mary was this foreign Queen who was forced into an arrangement since she was six to save herself and her country. She was forced to live in a place where she was in constant danger. Bash was the bastard son who even though he never resented his brother for his title, he was always on the outside looking in. They both found a sort of solace and haven within each other and grew together as individuals, as a couple and as rulers, however brief a time it was.
I believe that no matter what happens from here on out, Mary and Bash will always have a place for each other in their hearts. Who knows if they end up together, but all I know is, they will always be there for each other. 
And anyways, who wants a couple that’s always happy and perfect? Give me angst and tragedy any day. Isn’t it the couple that makes you feel things, the one that stays with you? The one you remember? The ones that make you cry and ache and hurt but in a good way.

And that is why I love them.
