I need a friend that would go to different forests and abandoned places with me

I live in Scotland. 
I voted Yes in the referendum. 

I was massively disappointed with the result when it came through on Friday morning but happy to now work with what we have been giving to make sure that things change in the UK to make it better for everybody. I was incredibly proud of how many people in this country became involved in making a decision about Scotland’s future. We had more people turning up to vote than we have had for years. It has been an time of incredible positive political activity for our country. So many people from so many different walks of life have been involved and that has been amazing. 

However, the things that have been happening in Glasgow today make me sick to my stomach. I went from my being so proud to hugely ashamed of this city. The violence and attitude from a small, but loud group have embarrassed everyone on both sides of the argument. There is never any excuse for behaviour like we’ve seen today and i’m so upset by it.

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.

If Scotland becomes an independant country, can we still have access to proper tea?!?! OR will we have to settle for Irn Bru flavoured everything? 

Haha “settle”… *guzzles Irn Bru*
