I think this photo may make sense now.
The E string is broken.
There are 4 strings.
The 4 strings represent the 4 Holmes siblings; Sherlock, Mycroft, Sherrinford and now, Eurus.
The E string snapped.
Eurus probably had some sort of traumatizing thing happen to make her “snap”, turning her crazy, when she was a child.
When the E string snaps, it will effect the others because it has the
highest tension of the strings, and because of this it can change the tone of all the others.
So when Euros snapped, the rest of them, Mycroft, Sherlock, and Sherrinford, were changed badly because of an incident having to do with her.
It all makes sense now.
Every Sherlock Holmes Adaptation Ever:
Sherlock Holmes and Irene Adler shared a candid forbidden love, being the only two hyperintellegent entities that could ever understand one another, but doomed to never be together. Tragically Beautiful.
Canon Sherlock Holmes:
HOLY SHIT YOU GUYS I JUST GOT IRENE ADLER'S AUTOGRAPH
don’t you just….. [clenches fist] love how every one of the female villains get “redeemed” by turning into a whimpering coward or a doting mother while the men actually get to be villains and never need a shitty redemption arc
The Six Thatchers blog post from season 2 was fake, a murder mystery John wrote for Sherlock as a Christmas present. If you read it you’ll see Sherlock literally asked a mall Santa for a murder for Christmas. Because one didn’t happen, John created one as a gift. ***Oh my god, my heart hurts so much right now*** In the story the murder victim was dating a man but loved from afar by a woman. Keep in mind this was written while Irene was in the picture. Write what you know, eh John? Such a good storyteller. He even had himself do most of the work, mentioning how brilliant Sherlock was during the whole thing, barely lifting a finger. What a beautiful Christmas present. THAT’S WHY SHERLOCK WAS READING THAT POST AT CHRISTMAS IN A SCANDAL IN BELGRAVIA. It was John’s present to him. It’s the post that had the counter stuck on “1895”.
The Six Thatchers episode follows the concept of The Geek Interpreter – stories miraculously coming to life. John’s Christmas story came to life – this is why Sherlock is so bent on premonition, fate, and Death in Samarra. The Lying Detective will be more of this. ***No characters in Sherlock in episode 11 go “Hmm, smashing thatcher busts? That happened already.” because it wasn’t a case. It was a story.***
Can you believe John loved Sherlock so much as to create that for him? My heart is hurting. I welcome death.
