But Snart didn’t just leave Heat Wave behind when he died. In the moments before his sacrifice, Cold and Sara (Caity Lotz) shared a smooch. “I’m also looking forward very much to whatever the writers have in store as far as Snart as White Canary,” Miller says. “There was a kiss, remembered by White Canary, but not Snart.”

I can’t put a simple caption because this photo speaks volumes.

I am so freaking happy to see that deerstalker back. It’s playing into our hand exactly. Instead of Sherlock putting it on and John happily standing behind him to meet the press in TEH, we see Sherlock insist on wearing it but John cautious, disappointed, and exasperated. Johnlock becoming canon needs John to first reject the public image Sherlock has made for himself – the one Sherlock thinks John loves so much. That hat, that disguise, ties to Sherlock’s hetero-hero image that’s been inaccurately circulating in the media for 100 years. Sherlock threw it down the waterfall before taking the plunge in TAB because he needs to free himself from it before he can allow himself to fall (in love). But John has always liked that hat, ever since the beginning. John liked them being closeted and disguised. For Johnlock to become canon, we must see John Watson openly reject that hat. He may even destroy it. He might rip it off of Sherlock’s head and throw it in the river. But one thing’s for sure – Sherlock is going to cling to that hat in TLD because of the fact that “love is your darkest secret” theme of the trailer. Seeing that hat back gives me a fire in my chest. This is a puzzle piece, just like anything else, and it must be used accordingly. That hat is critical to Johnlock as endgame.

I finally get everything moved into me flat, completely excited about how great this place looks and less than fifteen minutes after unpacking started, I trip over the coffee table, drop a coffee mug which shattered everywhere, lost my phone and I’m pretty sure I may have really bruised my shin. So that’s what kind of day I had, and it’s not even halfway over yet. If anyone wants to save me from doing anymore damage, it would be much appreciated. 

So…I just started watching Ellie’s streams about a week or two ago (some time around the release of AToTS) and she totally got me into this adorkable show/skit/animated short? idk (Amongst other things…my brain is chalked full of madeon and electro swing now, haha). I also wanted to credit the colouring style used in this picture to her because it’s actually a really fun colouring technique that I had only used for pencil drawings up until now, so…uh, yeah! It’s real awesome and makes the whole process really interesting! It’s really flipping great!! xD

But yeah, anway. *whispers* This little film is the best so you should really go watch it. At some point. Ye.

Bonus!

We don’t even know if i’ll actually do it.

i don’t care about sports at all but the cubs are in game 7 of the world series and wow. i am sobbing watching right now. my older sister, erin, loved the cubs. we are from chicago and so we all love the cubs, but my sister dude…she loved baseball and she loved the cubs so much. ugh. omg. she passed away when i was 10, but this has reminded me so much of her and i am so grateful for it. she would have been sooo freaking happy to see them in the world series. i can’t even imagine how happy she would have been. 

i feel like i can see her smile and i haven’t felt that way in so long. my entire life is so removed from anything and everything to do with her. but here i am 16 years after she passed away and i am crying in my apartment thinking about the older sister that i loved and wishing that she was here and wondering what she would be doing or thinking or saying. i am so grateful for this.
