Seven years ago today, John Watson bumped into an old friend in a park. Had it not been for that friend he may never have been introduced to the life he now has with Sherlock Holmes. He may never have seen the world they way he does now, he may never have seen it at all.
Mike Stamford is truly one of the most important people in the lives of John Watson and Sherlock Holmes, without him there never would have been an ‘and’ to join them.
I didn’t fall in love with you. I walked into love with you, with my eyes wide open, choosing to take every step along the way. I do believe in fate and destiny, but I also believe we are only fated to do the things that we’d choose anyway.
