reminder: you don’t have to write a character off a show by killing them
This person deserves the internet award.
why isn’t it acceptable to just ignore everyone for a few weeks
ok but when people say “that character isn’t canonically gay” when they’re talking about a character whose sexuality is never actually mentioned in the books/show/whatever. no. no actually u chose to infer that the character is canonically straight because u think straight is the automatic sexuality of all beings unless the word “gay” is in bolded size 60 font and that’s shitty
friendly reminder that scott mccall would never shove an abuse victim into a wall over a girl, because scott mccall doesn’t consider women property and he isn’t a total asshole who hurts his close friends just because they show interest in people he’s no longer with.
basically this episode was sherlock showing how much he values and appreciates and loves john and john showing how much he values and appreciates and loves sherlock and it was just beautiful yet absolutely heartbreaking
I wish there was a codeword for “you sprung that plan on me too last-minute and I didn’t have enough time to mentally prepare myself” because I feel kinda bad when someone spontaneously invites me to do something and I’m just like no no no no I need wARNING I have to have enough time to build up my social energy
I really wish people understood this.
people who complain about the reunion being a big joke and nothing was taken serious and sherlock was really ooc
john’s reaction is expected he is trying so hard not to cry in the middle of the bloody restaurant he is in shock and he is really angry he slams the table with the fist and he hisses to sherlock his voice is broken and he is so confused and flooded by contradictory feelings he is a big fucking mess we can all agree it’s a good response to ‘short story: not dead’
and sherlock is all giggly and joking and seems so unaffected by seeing john again it seems like he saw him last week to have a couple of beers but sherlock holmes is a fucking liar he is not ooc he is scared as fuck he is anxious and nervous and he just wants everything to be as it was when he left and the worse is that he knows it’s not going to be that way but he is the great sherlock holmes he doesnt do feelings he is not going to whine on anybody’s shoulder and less talk about it with john he makes stupid jokes because he doesnt know how to deal with all his feelings he doesnt know how to tell john he is sorry in a meaningful way he doesnt know how to do all that stuff and he is terrified john isn’t going to forgive him he does not even tell him he was out of the plan because he had to be safe at all costs he lets john believe they didn’t trust him so he doesnt have to talk about his feelings towards john sherlock is not being out of character he is just a really good liar and a scared soppy baby
okay but like the way sherlock was hearing john’s voice when he was with molly trying to solve that ‘crime’ imagine the entire two years he was away and taking down moriarty’s network he always had john’s voice there making comments and he couldn’t get back in touch with the one person who means the absolute world to him for fear it would put john and his plans in danger and that voice wasn’t making things better it just made him feel more lonely and isolated and goD SO MUCH PAIN
