“Just words I like,” he said. “If I say them to myself, it makes my mind—quieter. Does it bother you?”
“No!” Kit said quickly. “I was just curious what words you liked.”
Ty bit his lip. For a moment, Kit thought he wasn’t going to say anything at all. “It’s not the meaning, just the sound,” he said. “Glass, twin, apple, whisper, stars, crystal, shadow, lilt.” He glanced away from Kit, a shivering figure in his too-large hoodie, his black hair absorbing moonlight, giving none of it back.
“Whisper would be one of mine, too,” said Kit. He took a step toward Ty, touched his shoulder gently. “Cloud, secret, highway, hurricane, mirror, castle, thorns.”
“Blackthorns,” said Ty, with a dazzling smile, and Kit knew, in that instant, that whatever he’d been telling himself about running away for the past few days had been a lie. He wasn’t leaving the Shadowhunters. He wasn’t going anywhere. Because where the Blackthorns were, was his home now.

So, I thought to myself… What if Sherlock and John make TIME’s “most influential” list?
And then, as always, I got a bit carried away.
Above is the cover and article, as well as a bonus cover for another article/issue.
I’m not going to write “The Final Problem,” but my thinking is that after everything happens with Moriarty and Mary etc. (a.k.a. I have my own thoughts about it that aren’t what we were shown in series 4), John writes an article like a blog post but publishes it as a TIME exclusive in January. He and Sherlock both decide the public deserves the truth, and neither of them wants to do interviews or entrust the story to anyone else. So John just sets the record straight once and for all, and that’s the cover of the issue. Oh, and Kitty Riley edits it… because her false stories about Sherlock catapulted her to fame, and they figure it’s only fitting that she help tell their truths–and she’s willing.
In my head, that article is a few pages and would be laid out with documents, footage stills, etc., so I don’t foresee myself writing or creating it anytime soon. But if I get hit with enough inspiration, perhaps I shall give it a go.
The AO3 link below includes the above graphics, the accompanying fic, Mycroft’s article typed out within it for easier reading, and a blog post by John in both graphic and textual form.
