gay people make the most ridiculous reaches to prove that holmes and watson are gay lol
johann fucknuts, a straight:
using this timeline i constructed by looking up victorian weather reports i can prove that watson was married three times, is allergic to peanuts and has six toes on his left hand
He [Holmes] loved to lie in the very centre of five millions of people, with his filaments stretching out and running through them, responsive to every little rumor or suspicion of unsolved crime. -The Resident Patient
S: “Well look at that! Guess my rusty talking sword just beat King Arthur! Heheh!”
SH: “… Hold on…”
K: “ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?”
Thanks to @neonnautilus for drawing that hilarious idea from me, them, @verdoiier and @bitter-fell-child !!!!! Where Sonic and the Black Knight is actually an elaborate game of DND and Sonic just keeps rolling perfect d20s despite not even making a proper character!
And which book / story sequence should I read for Moriarty’s case?
Sorry if I missunderstood your question but you are asking for the order in which you should read the SH books in, right?
The order doesn’t matter for most (like 90%) of the stories as they are all
self-contained. However, I’d advise you to read A Study In Scarlet first since it’s not only the first published Sherlock Holmes story but also the story in which Holmes and Watson mee. You could go for A Sign Of Four next because not only is this the second Sherlock Holmes story but also because Holmes and Watson get to know eachother a little bit more. Furthermore, you certainly need to readThe Final Problem (which is the Moriarty story you asked about) before
The Empty House, as this is a ‘direct’ follow-up to the events of FINA. I personally would adivse you to read His Last Bow (the short story not the collection of short stories) last because, even though it’s not the last Sherlock Holmes story ever written or published, it’s the epilogue. When it comes to the order of the rest of the stories, it really doesn’t matter as I said before. You could go by the chronological order - which is what I did, exept that I didn’t read the short stories in the order they are already in but picked the ones that sounded the most promising or mysterious first and then read the rest, or maybe read all the novels first and then the short stories (I personally find SCAR and VALL rather weak compared to SIGN, HOUN and most of the short stories which is why I wouldn’t choose that order but maybe you really like them!), or go wild and chose which ever stories you want first.
I hope that helped. In case the abbreviations I used are unclear, you can check their meaning here - I’m usually too lazy to spell the title of most of the stories out, which I’m really sorry for.
