*arrives a month later with Sherlolly fanfiction that takes place - of course - in the aftermath of ~that episode~*
“Go away, Sherlock”
“Mrs. Hudson sends biscuits.” He blurted out, ashamed of the way his tongue rushed to bribe her with sweets. He noticed, as he noticed (almost) everything else, the fact that she loved sweets. Always during her visits to Baker Street she took her tea with not one but two of Mrs. Hudson’s treats.
“You go down there and you talk to her.” John had said. “Fix it, Sherlock, as you fix everything else. Look, Mrs. H brought biscuits. That’ll get you inside. The rest is up to you.”
Her icy command came through the closed door.
“You can leave them at the door on your way out.”
“No, Molly. You have to let me in”.
He immediately regretted his poor choice of words.
“You know, I really do not have to do anything, just because you ask”.
“N-no, of course not.”
In a manner very un-Sherlock like, he faltered. Against her good sense, she was drawn to the door at this sign of vulnerability in his voice. It was as if her presence could make it better, which was, of course, a ridiculous thought.
“I just-I really need to explain-”
The door suddenly burst open. Molly Hooper stood before him, looking at him directly in the eye. His towering form wasn’t so intimidating now, she noticed, and, in turn, he didn’t feel very powerful standing before her.
This whole post is born out of a post I saw in the Swan Queen tag, basically it was one of those “can’t we all just get along”, “ship and let ship” posts. While I agreed with most of the things they said, there was one thing I read that just got under my skin, “C$ is confirmed True Love” and all I could think was
So as not to be that person and hi-jack the post I decided to make my own.
I will never understand why people think that C$ is confirmed True Love (TL). Is it because of that contrived test that they “passed”? I don’t know why this bugs me…no wait I do, OUAT’s tried and true method of proving TL is True Love’s Kiss (TLK) which C$ does not have. In fact every couple that we’ve seen have TLK it was their very first kiss, C$ has had a gratuitously numerous amount of kisses, including a few failed TLK attempts. To me that automatically discounts them but there are still people out there who think that ridiculous test was what confirmed it when in fact it completely and utterly disproved them as a TL couple and I’m gonna prove it. Let’s take a look at the test scene in episode 5x20 “Firebird” just because I have a strong desire to rip it a new one. Brace yourselves this is gonna be long.
I’m gonna do this in sections and put it under the cut because it’s going to be so long.
I. The Dialogue
II. The Test
III. What the Show Says About True Love and Comparing/Contrasting with Swan Queen (just because I can)
Instead of telling Supergirl something like “So I will see you tomorrow” or maybe “We will see you tomorrow night” no no Lena decided to be all like “Kara and Iwill see you tomorrow night” like she can’t stop with the gayness for a whole minute.

anyways, if you reblog sherlock and/or sherlock and molly stuff, please like this post so I can follow you asap :’)
I’d like to think that Kuroo would be the biggest spoon by default. Tsukki is always reluctant to join in afternoon snuggles and so Kuroo and Bokuto have to kidnap and trap him in the middle. But Bokuto, being the child he is, usually takes the baby spoon position, mostly because Tsukki can’t move him off and after a while starts to unconsciously fiddle with Bokuto’s hair and/or hands (which he loves - small, gentle Tsukki touches are the best touches).
However I don’t think Kuroo minds much (being the biggest spoon), since he can annoy the both of them as Tsukki never really retaliates and Bokuto is too lazy to move for a counter attack. Also Bokuto is a bit demanding and specific when being cuddled while Tsukki just kinda lets Kuroo do whatever. Which is usually nuzzling. Because Tsukki has a nice neck for nuzzles. Obviously.
As for Tsukki, I think he secretly enjoys the warmth and comfort but Bokuto is so restless and moves around too much so it’s not as relaxing as it could be. On the other hand Kuroo is pretty still but he makes Tsukki’s neck hot and whispers cheesy pick up lines, or dumb jokes in general, and won’t stop till he gets Tsukki to at least smile at one of them. All the while Bokuto talks to himself with Tsukki and Kuroo occasionally humming noises of response so that Bokuto doesn’t realize that no one is paying attention.
I’ll never understand the Cloti/Clerith debate. Don’t get me wrong, I ship Cloti to my grave and they’re the first and most meaningful OTP I’ve ever had. However, I’m so disappointed in how many Cloti shippers I see trying to tear down Clerith and vise versa.
So what if they get a moment that seems canon?? Let them have it for fucks sake. You don’t have to discount the other pairing to make yours seem better, it honestly doesn’t work and makes you look shitty. Just focus on the the things that make you love your pairing and enjoy those moments. You know what I do when I see a Clerith post? I FUCKING SKIP OVER IT AND MOVE ON WITH MY LIFE. Honestly how do you guys even enjoy your pairing if all you’re focused on is hating the other? I’ve said it before, they’re all great characters and they’re all so deserving of love. Ship who you want and leave other people alone.
“I can’t believe you’re graduating college already,” Anna mused aloud as she pulled the new boxes of cereal from their shopping bags and put them atop the fridge where they belonged. Her mom’s kitchen stereo, perched in the window, buzzed and popped with the news in the background. Mom liked to listen to her CDs on it, but when she wasn’t around, Anna and Cassie liked to turn the radio to news stations to listen as they talked.
Right now, Anna wished they hadn’t. Apparently police were still trying to solve the bizarre serial murders that had been going on in the area, despite no leads and no luck. Anna got a bad feeling in the pit of her stomach that got worse the more she heard about it.
Cassie hit the power button and the radio faded to silence. Anna glanced over but Cassie was already turning to get the other bags. The glimpse she got of Cassie’s face was stony. At least Cassie sounded like herself when she replying, “I know. Time flies when you’re drowning in papers.”
Anna went to join her in unsheathing the milk, and took the opportunity to nudge her side at the same time. “You think maybe you should’ve eased up a little on your classes?” she asked. Okay, yes, sometimes she got accused of being the mom friend. Anna took it as a compliment. It meant she looked after her friends. Like Cassie. At this point, the battle was over, but there was still hope for her not overdoing it in the future.
Probably not much though, going by the sudden intensity Cassie gave off. “No way. A shot like this seemed way too good to be true, I wasn’t going to waste it on a handful of classes before they could pull the rug out from under me and make me go home with nothing to show for it.” Cassie nodded, full of determination and - Anna’s heart swelled - the amazing, beautiful pride she took in her own accomplishments. Anna loved her for it. Among other things.
When Cassie turned to look Anna in the eye, Anna wondered if she’d heard her and the world seemed to freeze. Instead Cassie said, “Believe me, I worked hard for this.”
Anna impulsively reached out and touched Cassie’s arm, needing to affirm. To let Cassie know how happy she was for her, how proud she was too. “I know you did. I was here, I saw you.” She cracked a grin. “I had to stop you from pulling your hair out the night before exams, remember?”
“Thanks for that,” Cassie said wryly. Then sighed. “Ah, I’m gonna miss this place.” Chuckled. “I never would’ve thought I’d miss Ohio.”
Anna, who had never lived anywhere but Ohio and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else, settled for a, “Yeah.”
Cassie shot her a look Anna had little trouble interpreting. “And I’m gonna miss you. That’s really the only… bad part. I mean, thank God I won’t have to get by on two hours of sleep anymore. And I can’t wait to see my parents and go home. But…”
“Cassie?” Anna asked. She could barely hear her own voice. For the moment, that seemed unimportant.
Cassie smiled painfully and Anna felt her hurt with her, as bitter and sharp as she’d felt any of her own. She could understand. If nothing else, they were practical girls. “But… what are you gonna do?” Cassie finished simply, closing the door on a question with no answer, her eyes glistening. Only a little.
Anna felt a tear break off and slid down her own cheek as she cupped Cassie’s face and kissed her, wordless.
Between the two of them, there wasn’t anything else to be said.
like, he’d listen to Clarke talk about her and he’d know that Clarke’s into her, because he knows Clarke and it’s so obvious
and then he’d meet her and he’d be a little bit terrified of her because “Clarke- she looks like she wants to kill me- Clarke does she want to kill me?” “probably?”
(Lexa is totally jealous of him and Clarke’s friendship)
when he finally gets over the fact that Lexa probably wants to kill him he spends the rest of his time around those two losers flinching and groaning and being entirely exasperated because “jesus christ Clarke, would you just hook up with her already- WAIT, I KNOW THAT LOOK- YOU HOOKED UP WITH HER?”
(he’s also completely disgusted by both of their TERRIBLE attempts at flirting and he tried his best to be a good wingman but “REALLY Clarke?out of all of the pickup lines in all the world, you go with ‘come here often?’”)
one day him and Lexa end up alone together and Lexa stares at him for an uncomfortably long amount of time and finally she says “Clarke cares for you. She trusts you” and Wells justs nods his head because he knows that’s as close to acceptance as he’ll ever get with the commander
and then he looks at her and says “She’s my best friend. Don’t hurt her,” and it’s Lexa’s turn to nod because she respects him and she can’t be mad at somebody for wanting to protect Clarke
(i have so many more Wells Jaha headcanons and i am literally always ready to talk about them)
