(I have a few more good photos but I selected these as my favourites. Might post more later.)

EDIT: Tired of seeing people reposting these and not giving credit to me. At least now “Oh I didn’t know who took them” can’t be an excuse. Will be doing these to all my photos as I can. 

John’s final message to Sherlock. “One more miracle, for me.” This part is so goddamn painful.

The second I heard him say it, “it was all a miracle was incluided in the speech in my headcanon.

You don’t even necessarily need to lose a friend to know the meaning of the word “miracle”. Sometimes you have a person, or people, in your life that CAN’T HAPPEN, shouldn’t, couldn’t have happened if the laws of nature and the universe whatnot had the slightiest bit of sense left, but there they are, the unbelievable and amazing people and you, YOU know them. It’s the overwhelming feeling of privilege and gratitude of knowing them and having the possibility to be with them.

To John, Sherlock is that unbelievable coincidence that completed his life - a MIRACLE.


</but I mean it>

Can we talk about the HLV music?

From the moment that Sherlock opens his eyes in the padded cell until he opens them on the operating table, the music is bloody sensational.  And it wasn’t until I’d listened to it many many times that I realised that that musical sequence is based on what I and a friend refer to as the ‘John alone’ music. 

There’s a now-very-recognisable sequence of four notes which have often played when John is at his most vulnerable – they were the first notes we heard in A Study in Pink when he woke from his nightmare; they played in Hounds when John was in the Baskerville lab and starting to get scared and Sherlock wouldn’t answer the phone; they played as he cried at Sherlock’s grave at the end of Reichenbach … and the sequence is absolutely what this music is based around as Sherlock claws his way up from death in order to keep his vow to John and Mary. 

It’s a staggeringly brilliant concept and makes me cry even more every time I listen to that piece.

Arnold and Price - ALL the awards.

  • Sherlock:This is going to be incredibly dangerous. One false move and we'll have betrayed the security of the United Kingdom and be in prison for high treason. Magnussen is the most dangerous man we've ever encountered and the odds are comprehensively stacked against us.
  • Sherlock:I feel the same!
  • Sherlock:....
  • Sherlock:...
  • Sherlock:Oh you mean it's actually Christmas
