Seriously, the writers essentially gave Sherlock William Scott Holmes to us.
Moffat and Gatiss completed their part in his story, and set up each happy ending that we could want. Now, it’s up to us all to make that happy ending into the story we all want to see. No one’s end wasn’t real. No lies were told. All I Love You’s and texts and caresses gave us all exactly what we wanted and they were all as real as we want them to be. Sherlock belongs to us now.
Steven and Mark are finished telling the story they wanted to tell. Now it’s our turn to continue that into whatever we wish. Don’t talk yourself out of your happiness. We all deserve our happy endings.
I feel like Newt’s masculinity/bad-ass manlyness is sometimes squashed in this fandom and people often portray him as feminine in fanfiction and klunk so I figured I’d make a list of examples of his bad-assery:
Thomas mentions multiple times throughout the books how strong Newt is
“He (Newt) reached down and helped Thomas to his feet - he was so strong it felt like he could rip Thomas’s arm off.” -TMR pg. 36
“Veins stuck out of his muscled arms” -TMR pg. 9
When Thomas got shot by a launcher Newt casually picked him up and chucked him onto the berg like nbd
he straight-faced suggested to Thomas that he get stung on purpose
“Newt slowly walked over to Minho and stopped in front of him. Then, quick as a striking snake, he punched him in the face. Minho staggered back and slammed into the empty weapons rack.” -TDC pg. 69
He survived the Scorch with a bum leg that probably hurt like hell the whole time
he’s an intense mother fucker don’t tell me otherwise
((OOC: I knew i was going to be super inactive today so I was scrolling through some old stuff in the hopes of finding something to post and… apparently attempting to learn masculine body language just makes you look like you’re checking yourself out))
will we ever have a text that allows such perfect multi-shipping as trc though. like every single pairing of the gangsey works except ronan/blue, and not only do they all like, compute, but they have a unique dynamic to explore. and then there’s like at least 4 or 5 other characters you can mix in there
