They are mirrors of each other, similar in so many ways and yet subtly different in others. It was why they would be rubbish together for any longer, why they are thrillingly intoxicatingly together now…
I won’t miss you, she wants to tell him. But the words that come out, that are murmured against his lips, that are pressed between their mouths as if they can physically be contained, are “I’ll miss this.”
She wouldn’t miss him, she’ll know exactly where he is, where to find him, what case he’d solved, because John Watson’s blog will record it all, but she will miss this, the feel of his hands against her cheek, the warmth of him next to her, the freedom of being simply as they are now, not the Consulting Detective and the Woman, but the late Sherlock Holmes and Irene Adler, nearly ghosts, free to move, to embrace in the middle of a Moscow street.
to my fellow children of immigrants: I’m so proud of you. I’m so proud of you. you make phone calls for your parents, you learn two languages at the same time growing up, you bring your “weird” foreign food to lunch, you teach your parents how to spell the easiest English words, you are terrified your friends will make fun of parents’ accents, you tell your mom to turn on the regular radio rather than your own cultural music, you joke about your culture as a way to lessen the pain, you struggle to think of yourself as beautiful when you see white all over mainstream media, you struggle to learn how to be proud of your skin and culture, you’re too American or too ____. life’s not easy. I feel your pain. I know your pain all too well. you’re valid. your culture is valid. it’s so hard to love yourself and your heritage in a whitewashed society, and sometimes it’s hard not to be ashamed, but you’re not a bad person or a coward for it. it’s not your fault. you’re valid. you’re okay.
What's the worst Scott meltdown you've ever come home to?
“Well, probably back around the time after Dad’s crash. Of course, we decided to carry on International Rescue, but it took a lot of… adjustment.”
“I’d rather not get specific, but it was a rough time for us all. Scott, as always, took the brunt. I suppose I really should have realized what happened then could happen again; that everything could build back up for him, but that’s hindsight for ya, right?”
someone being on the comet observatory while rosalina is crying because she almost forgot her mom again, the someone hears, checks out rosalina’s room, and is shocked to see rosalina’s face wet with tears and buried into her hands. proceeds to console rosalina through the rest of the night.

You can say I spend majority of my year with Dan & Phil. I am so glad that the phandom welcomed me with open arms. I made a lot of new friends, did fun projects and achieved many goals that I’ve set for myself; like having an entire art summary filled with colours+digital and completing inktober. To me, it was been a very successful year. I may or may not still be in the phandom but where ever my art takes me, I hope to create new memories in 2017 like this year.
