Remember when we all collectively squealed and freaked out (not necessarily in that order) when we saw this: Molly Hooper as his love interest. We should have known that something big (like an ILY) was coming our way but we didn’t want to get our hopes high so didn’t take it seriously. TBH I was very happy to see this. The media was giving us a clue all along. YAAAAAAY
@themarieffectasked that Mary, Anthea and Molly are besties and John, Mycroft and Sherlock find out! Mythea, Warstan, and Sherlolly. This is the last prompt! Turns out I had six prompts, and I couldn’t pass this one up!!! Prompts are closed now though. But stay tuned for more fic giveaways in the future!
There was an awful lot of commotion coming from Molly’s
flat. Loud music, glassware clinking and now and then some kind of thumping
following by hysterical laughter.
“Oh my Lawks, ‘Thea, you’re going to break something!”
“No I’m not shut up!”
“I wish you’d just wait for Sherlock to come over, he’s tall
enough, he can hang them up when he comes over tomorrow-“
This was met by a chorus of whistles and shrieking noises.
“Oh shut up!” Molly shouted, laughing.
John, Mycroft and Sherlock stood on the stairway leading up
to Molly’s flat.
“Sounds like a hen party,” John said at last.
“For…what?” Mycroft asked, still staring at the door, quite
unused to his wife making crass jokes…or talking about hisposterior outside of
their bedroom, and to other ladies.
“That’s more than I care to hear about your bottom,
“Well now we know,” John said, shutting his eyes with a
shrug. “Everyone agrees you have a fit bottom, that can also be described as ‘cute’
and ‘perky’, Mycroft,” he slapped him on the shoulder and went on up the
“You don’t mean you’re actually going up there!” Mycroft
“Look, Mary texted me, it must’ve been important. What are
you doing here anyways?”
Both Holmes brothers shifted, trying to square their
shoulders in the narrow hall.
“Molly texted me.”
“I received a text from my wife,” they both answered at
once, then glanced at each other.
“Well then…maybe they need ice or snacks, and nobody wants
to drive or get dressed or something.”
“Get dressed?!” Mycroft again looked alarmed.
“Yeah,” John said, pausing at the door. “Girls do that. They’ll
hang out in their pants all day if they like…doesn’t Anthea do that?”
Mycroft couldn’t speak, eyes glazed over somewhat.
“Molly does that sometimes,” Sherlock volunteered.
John gave a ‘there you go’ nod to him and then knocked on the
“Oh I told you!”
“You haven’t checked yet!”
“Ten to one it’s John-“
There was a ruckus as they all went running across the flat,
and fairly ripped the door open. The three of them stood there, half-dressed,
Mary and Molly had rollers in their hair, and Anthea was blowing on her nails.
Clearly, all of them had been drinking.
“Who did we say wins if all three came at the same time?”
“We do, because we’ll send them for food,” Mary said, and
reached for her wallet, pulling out a wad of cash. “Kebab shop is fine! You
boys get something for yourselves to eat as well!” with that the door shut,
leaving all three of them once again on the landing, wondering what in the heck
was going on.
“Were we just-“
“Played like a fiddle, yep,” John nodded, pocketing the
money. “Come on, we’ll get the girls something to eat, and then I suggest we go
and find a pub.”
“I concur,” Sherlock agreed. “No chip butties though, they
make Molly sick.”
“I…I don’t-“ Mycroft was still fumbling for words. “How long
has this sort of thing been going on?”
“What?” John laughed. “I dunno. Does it matter?”
“Not in the least!” Mycroft replied. “I am only surprised…”
“That Anthea’s a woman?”
“No, I’ve always been quite aware of that,”
“Then what?” Sherlock asked now, curious as to why his
brother was so flustered.
“Well, I always knew you two were idiots,” Mycroft said. “I
never expected that I would fall for something as benign as a ‘Come quickly,
you’re needed’, text, when I know for a fact there was nothing urgent about.”
“Then why did you come?” John asked. He and Sherlock
Again, Mycroft looked at them both, weighing the options of
telling them the truth or not. Instead he alighted up to the kebab shop door. “Right,
so dinner will be on me then,” he declared and headed in.
“You think he was hoping for…”
“A booty-call, yes,” Sherlock nodded.
“I don’t know if I want to let him forget that just yet,”
John said, laughing.
“Nor do I, leastwise not for the rest of the night…”
I just saw this on Facebook, this is made by a Russian girl who makes every character in a cartoon. (I don’t know her name anymore but if I knew it you get the biggest shout-out ever) I really love it. I wish I was so talented as her ✨🌙
I am so sorry to new followers, I typically avoid major wankages in the Sherlock dumpster fire fandom but some things are too ugly to ignore. Yes it may seem silly, but it isn’t silly to me. Not at all.
I’m a survivor myself, of childhood trauma, but trauma nonetheless. Seeing those posters make light of true victimhood is not ok. You don’t get to make images that misrepresent the characters of a tv show to manipulate people into thinking they embody TRUE abuse. What makes it truly horrible though, is that the person put real, actual abuse hotline numbers and women’s organization phone numbers on these images. Damn. ૮(ꂧꁞꂧ)ა
I’m fine with Johnlockers chaffing til the cows come home about their ship not becoming canon, but the continued outright LIES have to cease. Write your fanfic. Drawn your fanart. Fix the show in those ways, that’s fine. We all do it. But you guys have to stop poisoning the rest of the fans who enjoyed this thing with outright falsehoods. Move on, find a new thing that gives you what you want, fix the thing in your head…but stop ravaging the rest of us with your bitter cucumbers of buttock fruit.
I made my sister watch Sherlock, two years ago. She is not as into detective stories (AND DETECTIVES) as much as I am, but she loved it and she fell hard for Andrew Scott (so much so that she actually came to the Sherlocked Con with me).
When I asked her about Sherlock as a character, she enthusiastically told me she wanted him to be gay and in love with John. I didn’t even argue, because I was 100% ok with her for thinking J*hnlock was canon and/or endgame.
By the end of series 3, she came back to me to tell me that, yes, she still sort of wished for a homoerotic outcome of the show, but she thought it was “absolutely obvious that the writers had decided to go for Sherlolly”.
Again, I didn’t say a thing.
Now she has to watch S4.
I said it mainly as a joke, but actually the idea of lesbian dominatrix Irene Adler meeting Molly Hooper and developing a big, sloppy, embarrassing crush on her, to the point where the woman who brought England to its knees gets weak in the knees and stutters whenever she’s near her morbid, mousy lady-love is very important to me.
Molly can see Sherlock.
Sherlock can’t read through Molly.
Whilst everybody knows how she feels about him, he was oblivious up until she risked her career to help him fake his own death (and let’s point out how badly she had been treated by Sherlock only few hours before he asked for her help).
The point is, John is Sherlock’s heart because he put feelings back into his life (and… you don’t really love your own heart, do you? You need it desperately to survive and to feel) and Sherlock is gradually getting to understand other’s emotions. That’s why he opens up to Molly in S3. He’s grateful and now aware of what her love is truly capable of, and he respects it.
That’s basically why I have very high hopes for S4.
