Hiddlesweek Day 2: Favourite Short Video: Fall In Love With Tom Hiddleston in 20 Seconds Or Less

even though two seconds would have been enough…

Oh and now it’s the train station scene (spoilers for the end of North and South ahead!)

I know it’s hugely anachronistic and I really do prefer the ending scene in the book in some ways– not least because book!Henry is a lot more perceptive than movie!Henry and spares me from feeling embarrassed for his dumb self– but seriously, I love this scene so much. As soon as their eyes meet I start not being able to breathe and then he’s just watching her, thinking “Sure it’s just a business proposition, tell me again how it’s purely a business proposition”:

He’s only interested in how her proposition will benefit Marlborough Mills.

Uh huh.

Seriously his face I can’t take it.

So then he takes her hand because that’s what you do with a prospective business associate who also happens to be your landlord:

And Margaret joins me in not breathing. And then she kisses his hand because clearly that’s the only possible thing to do:

And he thinks, “Let’s not stop at hand kissing, shall we?”

HIS FACE I JUST CAN’T

I once read a blog post about the acting Richard Armitage does with just his thumb during this scene. It was strangely accurate.

Margaret’s train is called and she blindly gets up and walks jerkily away (I cannot blame her AT ALL for her sudden loss of fluid motor skills) and poor John thinks that he’s overstepped and she’s leaving but then she’s standing next to him with her bag in her hand and he asks in this wondering, almost breathless voice, “You’re coming home with me?” because apparently he stopped being able to breathe as well and he just looks SO HAPPY.

Of which there apparently aren’t a lot of pictures out there (why?) but this is the dawning of the super-happy-I-now-have-everything-I-ever-wanted-how-is-that-even-possible face:

Of course, this would NOT have happened, it’s like 1855 and she wouldn’t have just hopped on the train and gone back to Milton with him and does she really want to have his mother (who hates her) as a chaperone until they can obtain a marriage license?

But who cares about that when clearly the correct answer is: “YES!!! Do not pass go, do not collect $200, let’s head straight to a Milton vicar!”

The music swells and off they go, dappled with sunlight and the reflection of leaves and they’re so happy and I notice I’m still not breathing.

So as the credits start to roll I take a deep, wheezing breath.

Then I press the back button on the remote and watch it again.

“I do not know…but…it is as if…my heart is welling up…[…] That voice…it couldn’t possibly be…”

These two are so precious ;^;

anonymous asked:

Sherlock x reader. The reader is just as smart as Sherlock, but is a selective mute. She'll only talk people she trusts. Like, Sherlock, John, Mrs Hudson, Greg and Molly. When she's called a freak by Anderson it makes Sherlocks blood boil

So be it!

Name: Do Not Open Your Mouth Again.

“The freaks are here,” you hear Anderson tell Greg, as you, Sherlock, and John walk upstairs to see the crime scene. You roll your eyes, but say nothing, hearing how Sherlock squeezes his teeth.

“Sherlock, Y/N, John!” Greg greets you, as you walk in the room and look at the dead body. “We’re totally stuck.”

“I do wonder why you keep bringing two of them,” Anderson comments. “One freak is enough, but you always take the second one as well…”

“What did you say?” Sherlock turns around, looking at Anderson with his face deadly calm. Anderson shuts up, but Sherlock looks too full of rage, as he approaches the man and grabs his collar.

“Sherlock!” you call him, but the Holmes is not really listening, as he keeps shaking the poor idiot.

“Anderson, you know how much I know about you. Your cheating. Your incredible stupidity. And guess what?” Sherlock smiles with a terrifyingly happy smile. “So will your wife. If you. Open. Your. Mouth. One. More. Time. To say anything. Anything. About her,” Anderson starts nodding. “Are we clear?”

“Sherlock,” you reach out for him and grabs his hand, making him let Anderson go. “Sherlock, it’s ok.”

“It is not,” groans Sherlock, and you feel Greg’s stare on your back.

“Sherlock, let it go! It’s an Anderson. It is not the first time he is being an idiot, is it?” Sherlock grins and lets go of the man, then turns to you. “I am glad that you are trying to defend me, but… Come on, he is an idiot.”

“It’s… It’s very strange,” Sherlock notices, as he looks around, as if he is dizzy. “Very strange.”

“Sherlock?” John tries to get his attention, but the detective keeps staring at you. “Guys?”

“The way I was trying to defend you…” Sherlock starts talking incredibly slowly, as if measuring each and every word. Then his eyes open widely, as he is looking at you, not blinking, not even breathing, until you take his hand.

“Sherlock? You’re scaring us,” instead of answering, Sherlock turns around and runs away. You look at Greg and John, as you all sigh. “I guess…”

“He knows it,” nods John. “He finally figured it out.”

“That he is in love?” Greg grins. “It felt good to know something he didn’t know though, didn’t it?”

“Yes, it did. But now we have to deal with Sherlock who just figured that he is in love,” you murmur, rubbing your forehead. “Do you know how annoying that will be?”

“Oh yes. But you will be the one suffering the most,” Greg and John grin, and you giggle, realizing that they are going to have the fun of a lifetime. Looking at you two trying to figure it out.
