after the reichenbach falls

Just remember the entirety of Britain lost faith in Sherlock the moment his “whole life story” was exposed in The Reichenbach Fall. After that piece of media, the whole world thought Sherlock was a fake genius, a fraud, a liar, a deranged lunatic. 

Also remember the entire Sherlock audience lost faith in BBC Sherlock the moment his “whole life story” was exposed in The Final Problem. After that piece of media the whole world thought BBC Sherlock was a fake genius, the project of two frauds, two liars, two deranged lunatics. 

Just a heads up, The Abominable Bride ruined our meta-community’s spirits by accident and we didn’t even know it when it was happening. Moffat and Gatiss didn’t have TAB in mind when they were pitching or navigating their show throughout the years. They didn’t expect to have an opportunity to take their Sherlock Holmes back to the Victorian period. They said this in their behind-the-scenes footage, that the idea of a stand-alone Christmas episode was sprung on them unexpectedly. They obviously jumped at it. What a great opportunity, and it fit right in with the story the were telling. They didn’t really achieve anything huge on the surface of that episode, we all know that. It spans like ten minutes of “real time”. It didn’t need to be there. His Last Vow and The Six Thatchers can flow seamlessly together if you omit TAB completely.

You see, theory-writing picked up steam after The Reichenbach Fall and TJLC carried it through the end of series 3. Then came TAB, a gold-mine of subtext with a brilliantly happy ending, and we rejoiced! TAB was beautiful. Sherlock Holmes was finally happy. Holmes and Watson finally got to have a moment’s peace at Baker Street. Mary was as absent as she normally was in the originals. Just the two of them against the rest of the world. 

We thought that would last. But why? TAB wasn’t accounted for in the original schematic of this show. It was a last-minute inclusion that allowed Moffat and Gatiss to have their happy ending early, but in a Victorian way. We shouldn’t have gotten TAB. It should have been HLV directly to TST and then the show would’ve careened out of control like originally intended. TAB is where WE as theory-writers gained our strength. S4 is where we lost it. And this is where we have the most trouble, because without TAB we wouldn’t be writing like we are. We probably wouldn’t exist as a group, to be honest. We owe TAB everything. 

The Abominable Bride gave us an insight as to where this show is going. It told us we’ve been right all along. But we shouldn’t have been told that. The episode wasn’t accounted for in the original outline of the show. For all intents and purposes, we should not exist as a group. 

TAB gave us validity and S4 took it away, which is something we’ve been gnashing our teeth at for nine months now. But we’re lucky we got TAB, since we weren’t supposed to be given validity in the first place. 

*climbing through moffat’s kitchen window* i just find it funny, and by funny i mean unbearably annoying, how sherlock just completely ignored john’s vatican cameos *dusting myself off and going to the fridge* i mean, the entire point of this season and tbh the rest of the show was that john and sherlock need to cooperate to work efficiently *gets a carton of milk and chugs it* and sherlock just went against alla dat even though we know he’d learned from his mistakes after the reichenbach fall. also *pours all the remaining milk over my head* sherlock was gonna shoot himself and john just stood there like a fucken idiot???? whats up with that???


I’ve been musing about this for a while, and finally took the time to put it together. It’s a long one, but mainly because of the images.

In The Six Thatchers, we are shown Mary’s apparent flight from London, through randomly selected places around the world. Many of us have noticed that elements of this flight are strange; I’m going to discuss some of them here.

First, Mary seems to be selecting her destinations based on (a) three rolls of a die and (b) the selection of a location based on this roll – from this source:

Many of the place names listed here are obsolete. There are references to East Germany (reunited with West Germany in 1990), the USSR (dissolved in 1991) and Yugoslavia (dissolved in 1992). Many of the cities are very old, but Noranda, Quebec, was founded in 1926 and became Rouyn-Noranda in 1986, so that sets the date limits for this source. Most of this period was dominated by the Cold War, which lasted from 1947 to 1991.

Maps and more under the cut.

lThe Man from UNCLE is an American spy fiction television series broadcast on NBC in 1964.

It follows secret agents, american Napoleon Solo, and Soviet Illya Kuryakin who work for a secret international counter-espionage and law enforcement agency called UNCLE, U.N.C.L.E. is an acronym for the fictional United Network Command for Law and Enforcement, a secret international intelligence agency, consisting of agents of all nationalities.

Ian Fleming contributed to the concepts after being approached by the show’s co-creator, Norman Felton .

U.N.C.L.E.’s primary adversary was THRUSH (WASP in the pilot movie). The original series never divulged who or what THRUSH represented, nor was it ever used as an acronym. However, in the UNCLE novels written by David McDaniel it is the T echnological H ierarchy for the R emoval of U ndesirables and the S ubjugation of H umanity, [6] described as having been founded by Col. Sebastian Moran after the death of Professor Moriarty at the Reichenbach Falls in the Sherlock Holmes story, The Final Problem.
THRUSH’s aim was to conquer the world.

In 2015 came out a film shot by Guy Ritchie who takes on plot and characters from the TV series.

In 1963, professional thief-turned CIA agent Napoleon Solo. He has to atone for committing crimes, going under cover as a secret agent. Do you remember someone?

 HE extracts Gaby Teller, daughter of Dr. Udo Teller, an alleged Nazi scientist-turned United States collaborator at the end of World War II, from East Berlin , evading KGB operative Illya Kuryakin. 

He later reports to his superior, Sanders, who reveals that Gaby’s maternal uncle Rudi works in a shipping company owned by Alexander and Victoria Vinciguerra, a wealthy Nazi sympathizing couple who intend to use Teller to build their own private nuclear weapon and give it to lingering Nazi elements.

The trio travels to Rome , where Gaby and Kuryakin reluctantly pose as an engaged couple, and Solo pretends to be an antiquities dealer.

During the operation, Uncle Rudy turns out to be a sadistic ex  nazi torturer, but when he ends up on the electrically powered chair he doesn’t stop confessing.

He in the end dies for a short-circuit (fire) of the chair (containment structure) that he himself had designed.

The mission ends on an island with a fortress.

The landing mission is shot with cuts on the screen that resemble the style of Tiblisi’s operation.

At the end of the mission, the three agents involved, American, Russian and English form a new team, code name U.N.C.L.E.

Tiny But Mighty -Sherlock Holmes-

This is such a sweet gif of Sherlock, but it has absolutely nothing to do with the oneshot so you should just roll with it.

Prompt: To distract Sherlock, you suggest playing a game of CLUE to pass the time. Little do the two of you know that you’re both incredibly competitive. 

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 

  “How about a walk?” 

  “For the final time Sherlock, John was very clear on your rules. You seem to not notice that you are getting over being sick and you have broken blood vessels in your eye. You’re not leaving the flat!” 

It had been a few days since the incident with Culverton Smith, and Sherlock Holmes was not a man that you could keep confined inside for very long. He lived and breathed adventure, and to spend his days inside was driving him insane. 

Sherlock sat up from his spot on the sofa, a mischievous grin spreading across his battered features. “We’ve still got CLUE.” He suggested, pulling the game box out from underneath the sofa. You’d heard alot about this game from John since you’d become Sherlocks girlfriend after The Reichenbach Fall, but you’d never had the experience to play it yourself. 

  “I’m so going to regret this.” 


  “Y/n, can you be any slower? John may return with Rosie at the rate you’re going.”

 You leaned forward on your knees and intently studied the game board. “If you don’t shut up, you’re going to learn what my wrath looks like.” You snapped, pressing your lips together as his eyes lit up. It had been an hour and a half since you started, and his sarcastic comments about your actual lack of knowledge for this game was beginning to get under your skin. “Who’s to say that Mr. Boddy wasn’t killed in the sitting room? What incentive does the butler have to off his boss?” 

  “Like I said, you see but you do not observe.” 

  “I observe that you’re a cheater! You can’t use your deduction skills in this game!” You cried out. Sherlock quirked an eyebrow as you jumped to your feet and stood in a fighting position, your hands fisted in front of you. “I’m going to fight you, Sherlock Holmes.” 

The grin that spread across his face made your heart melt. “Do you want me to teach you how to observe?” He mused, gasping as you took another step forward and lightly punched him in the forearm. “I observe that you’re the cutest short human being I quite possibly have ever seen in my life.” 

  “This cute human being is going to beat that adorable smirk off your face.” You collapsed in his embrace and smiled as he kissed the top of your forehead, wrapping his arms around your waist as you flipped off the CLUE board and launched it across the room. “I vote next time you’re incapacitated and on doctors orders that we just watch movies, and you deduce the endings until your heart stops. Sound good?” 

  “Can I spoil the movies for you?” 

  “We’ll talk about it.” 

John entered the flat with Rose balanced on his hip and rose an eyebrow at the disaster that was the CLUE board and pieces. His eyes flickered towards where you sat on the sofa, Sherlocks head in your lap and the rest of his body curled up in the fetal position. “Good Lord, it looks like a tornado came through here.” He mused, sitting the baby down in her high chair. “I take it CLUE went as expected?” 

  “I may or may not have threatened to beat him stupid for cheating.” You kissed your biceps and wiggled your eyebrows at John. “I may be tiny, but I’m more mighty than anything Sherlock Holmes can deal with. He should fear me.” 

  “You’ve been saying that since we met, and believe me, we all fear your ferocity.”

My next big project is a blast from the past.  This is a fic that I thought about recording years ago, but had procrastinated because there are a lot of different languages in it, which is something I struggle with (all mis-pronunciations are my own, sorry!)  It was written after Season 2, Post-Reichenbach Falls, before Season 3 aired.  I’ve seen it listed on some ‘top 10’ Sherlock fic’s, and the author, SilentAuror ( @silentauroriamthereal ), has previously said this is one of the stories she is most proud of.  It’s really a spy/action story, with drama, angst, love and choices.  And one of the best reveals that Sherlock is alive that I’ve read.

Everyone believes Sherlock died in the fall, but Sherlock is abroad, and has been captured.  We join the story there.

Let us begin.

Sherlock: The Lost Special (2019)

… that after extensive police investigations, Richard Brook did indeed prove to be the creation of James Moriarty…

… amidst unprecedented scenes, there was uproar in court as Sherlock Holmes was vindicated and cleared of all suspicion …

… but sadly, all this comes too late for the detective who became something of a celebrity two years ago …

… Questions are now being asked as to why police let matters get so far.

Sherlock Holmes fell to his death from the top of London’s Bart’s Hospital. Although he left no note, friends say it’s unlikely he was able to cope with …

LESTRADE: Well then. (raises his cup.) Absent friends. Sherlock.
ANDERSON: (sadly raising his own cup): Sherlock.

The Lost Special isn’t happening for at-least two years. If it does before that, good, nice, very nice indeed. If it doesn’t, I will talk about it in January 2019.

Once more unto the hiatus.

Sherlock x reader

Summary: an American forensic psychologist hired by Mycroft Holmes. You thought it would be more interesting and fulfilling than your previous job with a law firm in London but you had no idea how much it would change your life. Or really, how much one person would change everything.

Word count:2929

Chapter Six

*Lines borrowed from the episode The Reichenbach Fall in BOLD.*

You were careful after Moriarty showed up in the flat and you noticed Sherlock was as well. The sitting room had been stained somehow. You barely spent any time in there and avoided walking through it at all. John had noticed and you could tell that he thought you were afraid of Moriarty and kept away from that room because of him. Sherlock had noticed but didn’t mention it. Your spontaneous distractions didn’t happen often, but you never allowed it to happen anywhere near the sitting room. Mycroft’s words would whisper in your head and you knew it would only make matters worse. Caring is not an advantage.

You sat in the kitchen staring into a cup of tea feeling a storm bearing down all around. You were just waiting for the first crack of lightning. Your phone buzzed on the table and you jumped then cursed under your breath. Glancing down, you saw Mycroft’s name flash on the screen with an attachment. You opened it and a video clip played. It was silent but you could practically hear the little girl’s scream. Another text came through with a single word, a coded message that simply meant go. It was the first flash of lightning and you only had to count until the thunder shook the windows now.

You closed your eyes, thinking back to two nights ago and how differently the night was playing out. Mycroft’s words had been driving you insane that night too. His arrogance always drove you up a wall but the way he had infected his brother’s mind had bothered you even more that night as you sat on Sherlock’s bed mulling it all over.

Alright all, since the last breeding didn’t take, I am now on a wait list for another breeding with a very similar pedigree (less French show, more Dutch and ringsport). The theme is Sherlock Holmes for registered names. I need to tie it to Castiel. Top ideas have been:

“Kennel Name’s Reichenbach” - after The Reichenbach Fall; relates to Supernatural for the ep 10x02 “Reichenbach.”

“Kennel Name’s On The Side Of Angels” - a quote from Holmes in The Reichenbach Fall; obvious relation to SPN.

Ideas? Suggestions?
