goodbye mr holmes

Me watching the ending of ASiB

*Irene texting Sherlock “Goodbye Mr Holmes”*

*Irene’s text alert goes off* “When I say run, run.”

*Loud passionate, romantic music playing in the background* *Scene fades out from Irene smiling, scene fades in to Sherlock laughing fondly at the memory*

“The Woman. The Woman.”

I’m not hungry, let’s have dinner

Bored in a hotel. Join me. Let’s have dinner.

John’s blog is HILARIOUS. I think he likes you more than I do. Let’s have dinner.

I can see tower bridge and the moon from my room. Work out where I am and join me.

I saw you in the street today. You didn’t see me.

You do know that hat actually suits you, don’t you?

Oh for God’s sake. Let’s have dinner.

I like your funny hat

I’m in Egypt talking to an idiot. Get on a plane, let’s have dinner.

You looked sexy on Crimewatch.

Even you have got to eat. Let’s have dinner.

BBC1 right now. You’ll laugh.

I’m thinking of sending you a Christmas present.

Mantelpiece.

I’m not dead. Let’s have dinner.

“Like a proper big brother!”

“Idiot boy!”

“Then you’re very limited!”

“Am I happy too? I haven’t checked.”

“I believe there’s a heart inside me”

“Goodbye, brother mine.”

      “Mr. Holmes?”

Mycroft froze as solid as a teaspoon of water in the dead of space and turned his widened eyes towards the open door of his study, not moving the gun at his temple a single millimeter from its position.

May We Meet Again

Pairing : Sherlock x Reader

Summary : Imagine working for Mycroft and working with him and Sherlock after his fall to take down Moriarty’s network, but when it’s time for him to go back to London Sherlock says his goodbyes.

You had been in the awaiting car with Mycroft as you watched him ‘fall’ from the roof. You watched as his friend cried and when John was dragged away by other agents disguised as civilians, Sherlock walked to the car while the agents placed Moriarty’s body in his place - a mask of his face over his.

He was risking a reputation he’d built to protect the people he cared about. For a man that claimed he felt nothing - he seemed to care a lot.
