At the center of the zone the remnants of the palace hulked dark and tangled against the autumn light. A few spurs of iron protruded; most were molded together in a complex weft, like giant brambles—choked and impassable. Magical vapors clung low about them, motionless, as if fused to earth. Their acrid taint made Kitty cough. She stood there quietly for a time.
"So much for your promises," she said at last.
No answers sounded from the ruins. Nothing stirred. Kitty did not linger. With slow steps, she returned to the living world.

burningupasun said: To be fair, Christian Camargo isn't white, his grandfather was Mexican American, apparently. But I agree about not needing more dudes, or anything to do with Joan and love interests, blech.
whoops, guess i should have looked closer. but honestly after the disaster that was mycroft the idea of spending more screen time on joan’s love life makes me want to run screaming for the hills regardless, so.
and mostly i’m just so disappointed because i can easily see myself rarely dating and never getting married, and i don’t see a lot of female characters i can relate to on that front. i didn’t even realize how much i’d latched onto that aspect of joan until the writers took it away. (oh, the irony that as an ace person i id more with joan than sherlock.)
and lbh, if they’re going to insist on giving her another love interest it should 100% be a girlfriend.
