Dr. Strange: Really? What do you have to gain out of this New Age dimensional utopia? Kaecilius: The same as you, the same as everyone. Life. Eternal life. People think in terms of good and evil when really time is the true enemy of us all. Time kills everything. Dr. Strange: What about the people you killed? Kaecilius: Tiny. Momentary specks within an indifferent universe. Yes. You see. You see what we’re doing. The world is not what it ought to be. Humanity longs for the eternal for a world beyond time, because time is what enslaves us. Time is an insult. Death is an insult. …
Rosie is addicted to Sherlock’s safety goggles and loves grabbing them while he’s still wearing them which usually leads to Sherlock being hit in the face with them because she tries to put them back on his nose
He doesn’t mind though, he actually thinks it’s kind of sweet. Also everytime it happens he keeps telling John how good her motoric skills are and how smart she is for her age
And of course for christmas Sherlock gets her her own pair of safety goggles (’Look John, they even had them in kids’ size!’)
‘No Sherlock! Just because she now owns her own pair doesn’t mean she can watch you blow up a cow heart, she’s not even 2 years old!’
Also for some reason she loves the skull which John would be ok
with if she didn’t try putting it in her mouth everytime she sees it
Of course her first word was idiot and John is still mad about Sherlock for being the reason behind it
one time John takes her when he’s getting groceries and they bump into
Anderson and the moment he starts talking to her she starts to scream
‘IDIOT’ at least 10 times and John can barely contain his giggles
Sherlock smiles smuggly as John tells him about it, although he does call John
stupid for not filming the moment, at which point Rosie once again
starts screaming ‘IDIOT’ and Sherlock has never felt more proud
So imagine if Martin and Ben co-introduce some tv event. So they walk up there but they’re wearing their Sherlock clothes. Everyone is confused and the TJLCers are going insane on Tumblr. They get up to the stage and are like “hello welcome to the (blank) event!” They say the normal stuff but then they pause and ben Says “ok I know a lot of people are confused about what we’re wearing. But some people will get it” then Martin takes over “So seems like everyone is really mad about the end of Sherlock” small laughter goes around the room. Meanwhile TJLCers are screaming at everyone to turn on your Tvs!!! Martin continues “so yeah queer baiting eh?” Martin does weird Moffat impression “make history! Love conquers all!” By this time the whole Sherlock fandom has their eyes glued to the tv. Ben starts “we want to make it up to everyone part of the Sherlock community after all these years. AND” he says with a wink “johnlock shippers. They step closer to each other. TJLCers are burning things and screaming. Ben and Martin step even closer. Sherlock and johns theme songs start playing. Suddenly their demeanors change. “John” Ben says “I should have told you sooner but… I love you” The audience gives a gasp. Martin looks back “oh god Sherlock.. I.. love you too” they lean in centimeters apart. Suddenly they kiss. The Sherlock fandom starts screaming at their tvs. The audience starts yelling, confused. “What’s going on?!?” Ben and Martin pull away cheeks flushed grinning like lunatics. “Sorry sue" Yells Ben. “Sorry Moffat but love conquers all RIGHT?” Now Martin. “Welcome to 2017s (blank event)!!!” The camera cuts to commercial. The tjlc fandom starts going crazy. The next day every news channel is talking about “the kiss” Moffat and mark deny that they had anything to do with it. Ben and Martin get called to hundreds of Sherlock events where thousands of TJLCers are thanking them and crying.
This’ll be an unpopular opinion and I’m sure I’ll lose followers for this, but I really feel like I need to get it off my chest...
tbh, I really don’t want to be around Tumblr when Sherlock ends. I should do, because I’d want to soak up all that fandom goodness and emotion that we’ve all spent so many years building up to. The jokes, the gifs, the fun, the hard-hitting emotion after Reichenbach, and of course, the sadness of our beloved show coming to an end. But I know that the vast majority of Tumblr content will be people who watched the whole series with “Gay Goggles™”, analysing every shot and blink of an eye to mean that it somehow had homosexual tension between Sherlock and John, bitching about how they reckon the whole show was just “homophobic queerbaiting trash” when it ends with Sherlock and John not together.
Don’t get me wrong, I used to do that analysing too. But it was only as a bit of fun because none of it was actually believable. It was all just stuff us kids had pulled out for the sake of a laugh, and I didn’t realise at the time that people were genuinely under the impression that it was ever anything more than us taking things out of context and ignoring the way actual human behaviour occurs.
I really hope I’m wrong, but considering I’m already seeing people go on about how ‘If this doesn’t end in Johnlock, then the whole show is just queerbaiting shit’, so I know that’s how it’ll most likely go down, and that’s really upsetting. I miss what the Sherlock fandom used to be. Full of crack, marvelling at the cinematography, and the endless fanart about something silly like Jawn loving jam and shit like that. That’s how I want to remember the fandom, but that’s not how it’s going to end after the show ends, and I’m really mad about that.
So far, so good. Taehyung and you have been able to keep your secret for a full month now. Granted you don’t get to go on dates or do things normal couples do, but you’re managing. The looks he gives you and the little touches here and there are enough for you.
Today is just like any other day; busy as hell. Everyone is exhausted and it is starting to take its toll. You’re having to pay extra attention to your work because your hands are starting to shake from the effort. Therefore you are taking a little bit longer to finish with the members than usual. Currently working on Namjoon Oppa, you concentrate on steading your hand long enough to conceal away the dark circles that have formed over the past few days. Namjoon Oppa is awake surprisingly, but totally zoning out.
I have a textchat idea. After the special and the mind trip Sherlock did to the victorian era, Sherlock appears at the morgue with a fake mustage and wears it in Molly, trying to figure if she's more adorable with or without it, but it get's in the way when he's trying to kiss her, so he throws it away! Can you please do it?
of course I can, my dear… **DO NOT READ UNLESS YOU HAVE SEEN THE ABOMINABLE BRIDE**
Sherlock: *enters the morgue, sporting a little brown moustache* Molly: *looks up; sighs, shaking her head* No. Sherlock: *stepping closer* It’s not for me. Molly: *giggles as he presses the stache onto her upper lip* You’re something else, you are. Sherlock: *strutinizing her closely* Shhh. Pull you hair back… *gesturing* sweep it over. Molly: *chuckles nervously* Are you having some sort of turn? Sherlock: No, don’t be basic *smiles innocently* Please? Molly: *begrudingly does as she’s told* Sherlock: *steps back; narrowing his eyes, mumbles* How did I not see it? Molly: *confused* Huh? Sherlock: *still watching* Shhh. Molly: *annoyed* Sherlock, I have work- Sherlock: Strange. Molly: What is? Sherlock: Don’t move. Molly: Sor-ry. Sherlock: Molly! Molly: Sherlock Holmes, if you don’t tell me what you are doing right now- Sherlock: I’ve never found a moustache adorable before. Stop moving. Molly: *giggles* Something you want to tell me? Sherlock: Have you ever thought about growing a moustache? Molly: *thinking* Well, when I was a kid I always wanted to be Hercule Poirot. Or Inspector Clouseau. Or- Sherlock: *kisses her* Molly: *blinking; in between kisses* Have you gone mad? Sherlock: *pulls away* Hmm, you’re right *gently peels off the moustache; smiles* It was alllways you *boops her nose* Molly: *frowns* What was- Sherlock: *kisses her again*
