most important part of the movie

Things I learned from the PP3 Facebook Live

1. Stacie is going to be in the movie, but have a different storyline than the rest of the Bellas… Maybe a baby plot?

2. The girls will be traveling all around the world, including Spain.

3. The girls have another find their sound moment in an old fisherman’s warf. 

4. That Trish seems like she has a great vision for the music and spectacle of the movie, but respects that the relationships between the girls are the most important part.

the reason why you should watch/read Doukyuusei

i know i someone has probably done this already but i just want to truly display why I love “Doukyuusei” so much.

the movie and manga’s visual art is stunning, with a simplistic art-style and light lines with lighter colors. the gorgeous aesthetic is simply too attractive to pass.

the voice acting is simply breath-taking, the well known Hiroshi Kamiya (Levi of snk, Yato of noragami, and Choromatsu of osomatsu) plays Kusakabe Hikaru. 

whereas, Kenji Norima (Chiba Mamoru of sailor moon crystal, Taihei Doma of himouto! umaru chan, and Natsuya Kirishima of free! starting days) plays Rihito Sajou

they play the parts of nervous and shy teenagers in high school beautifully, with all of the normal “hiccups and stutters” of a teenager confessing to a loved one. 

however, the most important part of this movie is the message.

the movie’s portrayal of youth finding their sexuality is just so accurate to the real thing, something you do not often find in the shounen-ai community. 

the “but we’re boys” comment is mentioned, but is not a revolving issue of the relationship between our two protagonists Kusakabe and Sajou. it is mentioned but quickly dismissed as they realize their feelings for one another.

the two boys suffer the same hardships that any person going through a relationship will suffer such as school and college, and not only that they move at a normal pace of a healthy relationship. 

in contrast to the trope in bl stuff today, the couple does not have intimate interactions until they have been going out for a year and this is just deep kissing. this is realistic for a high-school couple of japan, thus displaying how NORMAL a same-sex relationship really is as many depictions of shounen-ai couples have had the couple have bedded one another within days of their “get-together.”

the movie not only depicts a warm and loving romance between two young-men and their innocent love for one another, it also pushes for the acceptance of same-sex couples, showing that they are not any different than the social norm.

same-sex couples have blushing confessions. same-sex couples have arguments. same-sex couples have confusion and thought.

just… this story and series is gorgeous and stunning and something i would absolutely recommend to anyone.

A Wand or a Weapon

I’ve noticed something recently that I really like about the Harry Potter/Fantastic Beasts universe, and the fandom itself.  In a lot of games, books, and fandoms, you find people who want lightsabers, gunblades, Keyblades, Hidden Blades, etc.  

These items are intrinsic parts of the universes and the stories, and hold personal meaning to each and every player, reader, or participant.  They’re wonderful.  But, you might notice that for the majority of these stories, the main key item is a weapon.

Very few books, games, or movies these days have a central, key item that isn’t meant to be a weapon first, and a tool second.  There are definite exceptions to this (i.e. the sonic screwdriver) but for the most part, a weapon is the most important thing a character can have.

In the world of J.K. Rowling, this isn’t the case.  It’s the wand that’s most important; an item that, although has the ability to do terrible, awful things, can just as equally be used to heal, create, and protect.  This is a tool given to young children and the first things they learn to master are levitation charms and useful functions; not ways to hurt another person or creature.  This item can only be used as a weapon if the wielder themselves decides to.

None of this is to say that other fandoms are in any way wrong for having weapons.  A lightsaber is meant to restore balance.  The Master Sword can only strike down evil.  A Keyblade can be used to save entire worlds and there are so many others that are just as fantastic.  

There’s so much to love about all of our favorite, meaningful items from these other series.  I simply adore the idea of the wand- a tool that can be made to create wonderful, beautiful things, and leave the rest up to the witch or wizard who owns it.



Request: Hi, I had this request on my mind for a while but was kind of unsure about it so it’s totally fine if you don’t wanna do it!! I was thinking something like the reader and Bucky are just friends and watching a movie and the reader is wearing a skirt and when she goes to put the movie in, Bucky sees she’s not wearing panties and smut from there? Like I said, it’s 100% ok if you don’t wanna do it, I just really love your work! - @rozasalavisa

A/N: This took me like an hour and a half to write. Thank you for sending in the request, it was so much to write and made me laugh so much.

So now you were picking out a movie from the highest shelf. In a normal position, your skirt reached a few inches below your ass but as you reached up the hem moved closer to your butt. Threatening to show him that you weren’t wearing any panties. What? It was comfortable.

‘What’s this called again?’ He called from the couch. He had sat down with a bowl of your favourite flavour of popcorn, two drinks and various other snacks to last you the night.

‘Twilight!’ you spun on your heels showing him the box set you forced Tony to buy. ‘10 hours of Teenage, angsty, vampire goodness’. You walked over to him, your bare core giving you a little more swing in your step than usual, and took a few pieces of popcorn from the bowl. Most of it had already gone but there was five more packets in the kitchen.

To the BBRae and Robstar shippers:

You know, I didn’t get to watch Teen Titans growing up because I didn’t have cable, and thus, wasn’t able to watch Cartoon Network.

The only reason I went and watched it now was because my friends were telling me how TTG was an insult to the original.

And I bingewatched every season of the show (still need to set up some time during the break to watch the movie)

I think it’s important that people know that I’m not blinded by what I saw as a child because I never saw TT as a child. I think most people who are still going at the shipping wars in the TT fandom just aren’t willing to look past what they saw as a child.

Now, as an adult, I’d like to think I can understand the writing with more appreciation that I could as a child.

Bingewatching the show in the better part of a weekend, I never saw any chemistry between Robin and Starfire, nor Beastboy and Raven. Starfire’s romance is so one sided it’s utterly ridiculous that people ship her with Robin.

The same goes for Raven; she’s always disgusted or annoyed whenever Beastboy is around. The only times they got along were at the end of Spellbound and after Terra sacrificed herself to save them all.

Robin and Raven, on the other hand, had so much potential. I’ve said before how they don’t need to have fluffy romance moments, because as I watched the show, the ship I saw between them was so clear.

So many important character developing moments happen between the two. Season 4 was basically just robrae fanservice.

There are lot of smaller moments that happen between the two, like in Nevermore

Robin tells Beastboy to apologize for getting on Raven’s nerves, then actually respects her wish to be alone (unlike the others. Beastboy, especially).

The two of them being wary of Terra, the fucking mental bond they formed so she could save him from Slade’s hallucination, how she stopped time and out of all her friends, rescued Robin because she knew she could count on him, not to mention Robin teamed up with his mortal enemy and went to hell because he never stopped believing in her for a second.

There was so much potential between the two, none of which I believe for a second was between bbrae and robstar.

So when you start shitting on my posts, stop for a second and realize two things:

1) I’m never going to not ship these two, so don’t waste time trying talking shit

2) bbrae and robstar are canon anyways, so instead of shooting down a bunch of people who didn’t get what they wanted anyways, go be smug somewhere else you sons of bitches.

1. Relax

Relaxing is one of the most important parts. It helps you take your mind off things, and will help you become more motivated to do your work. Read a book, take a bath, watch a movie, anything!

2. Go over the notes from the week before, and if possible, rewrite/type them for easier reading.

It doesn’t matter whether if you don’t have homework in that certain class. Going over the notes will help you in the long run, and will also prepare you for any upcoming pop quizzes or tests that the next school day.

When I have time on the weekends, I do rewrite my notes to make them neater. It helps me retain the information and mark any important information I forget to add during class.

3. Update your calendar for any upcoming events/update bullet journal or planner

Just a way to make your life more organized the next week.

4. Do your homework

For my classes, homework doesn’t count as an academic grade, but it plays an important part for citizenship.

DO NOT SKIP YOUR ASSIGNMENTS. I REPEAT, DO NOT SKIP YOUR ASSIGNMENTS. You have homework to go over what you just learned, and also provides you with harder problems that may come up on a test. Doing your homework also means you can study off from it when there’s an exam coming up.

anonymous asked:

I have a bunch of stories that I'm working on but none of them feel... good? Like original or something that people would want to read. It makes me sad, and not want to work on them... do you have any tips for feeling like this? Have you ever felt like this? I'm frustrated with myself

I feel like that all the time. It’s hard not to when you spend so much time reading and watching Tv/movies. It seems like every thing I want to write about has been done before in a more interesting/more cohesive way.

But let me tell you why that’s definitely not the case.

You, as a writer, have your own historical perspective. You have values and opinions that differ from everyone else’s, events in your life that no one else has experienced, and you place importance on different parts in a story as a result. 

In little Red Riding Hood, what’s the most important part of the story to you? That her mother let her go through a wolf-infested forest in her own? That she wore red into a wolf-infested forest? Or is the most important part the way the woodsman bursts in to save her? Is it important what they do after the wolf is dead? Or do you think that’s all to tell?

Where are you going to start? Where will you end?

My advice is to take joy in what’s going to happen next. Write as much as you want on scenes that are important to you and as little as you can on those that aren’t. Your passion will change the shape of the story, make it something that feels new and exciting.

(actually, go ahead and try to rewrite a story like Little Red Riding Hood as if it’s one of your own stories. Then read someone else’s telling, then read yours. I think that’ll illustrate this point better than I can explain it.)

Be interested in what you write. Don’t just focus on Point A to Point B to Point C. Everyone can write Little Red Riding Hood, but only you can write The Tale of the Crimson Adventurer and her Unfortunate Foray into the Forest.

It’s not always about being unpredictable when you write. It’s about being compelling and the best way to be compelling is to be passionate.

So I have every confidence that you do have a wonderful story that people want to read. I have every confidence that you have a gorgeous story that needs to be told. The hard part is going to be finding the best way to tell it from your perspective.

My dudes, if you’re looking for a good LGBT+ story with a happy ending, go watch The Way He Looks (on Netflix right now). It’s about a blind boy named Leo who gets bullied at school and who wants his parents to stop being so protective of him, and he ends up falling in love with another boy named Gabriel.

There’s some not safe for works bits (there’s a shower scene where both Leo and Gabriel’s bare behinds get shown, and it’s implied that Gabe gets physically aroused, plus a scene where Leo fondles himself inside his underwear), but for the most part, it’s a very sweet, realistic story with a happy ending. Plus they have a female friend named Giovanna who’s a main character and very important to the story (and NOT just as a plot device). And while the romance is the main part of the story, it’s not the ONLY part of the story.

Now, it’s a Brazilian movie, which means it’s all in Portuguese, but Netflix provides subtitles. So if you’re feeling down, as I have been lately, go watch it right now. It’s really, really great.

Movies teach us important lessons, like “The power was in you all along” or “If you travel back in time, don’t have sex with your ancestors, even if they’re really hot.” For the most part, we’re all happy to agree that “Love conquers all” and “We’re stronger together” and “Werewolves really should be allowed to play basketball.” But sometimes, Hollywood tricks us into thinking that because these lessons should be true, they are true. But in reality, if a werewolf tried to play high school basketball, he’d be shot in the face by Betsy DeVos.

But movies (you may want to sit down for this one) aren’t real life. On the mean streets of existence, “When they go low, we go high” is a great way to get punched in the crotch. Or eaten by vicious owls.

Obama’s election caused (or, to hear the Koch Brothers tell it, just happened to coincide with) the rise of the Tea Party. The Tea Party went through several incarnations, and meant a lot of different things to a lot of different people, but somehow they managed to coalesce around one deep political conviction: Everything Barack Obama said was wrong. If he said “Grass is green,” they said “No, it’s purple,” then noted that green is the unpatriotic color of Islam, and lawns should be defunded. It wasn’t fair, and it had very little to do with reality, but it was damn effective. Now Obama is being the perfect picture of class, urging the world to give Donald Trump a chance. Which Trump is repaying by tearing up as many of Obama’s policies as he can fit in his little hands.

Trump is even more polarizing than Obama, but elected Democrats aren’t as ruthlessly efficient at stymieing his agenda. While Trump is up to his eyeballs in Emoluments Clause violations, Democrats are burying the lede by only focusing on his nominees. It’s ridiculous that they aren’t able to mount an effective guerrilla-style political opposition to Trump, as he seems to be serving himself up on a platter. It’s not like liberal groups are always bastions of moral behavior.

Tofu Guys Don't Eat Meat by Vicki Woods for Vogue, May 1990 (Part I)

River Phoenix is only nineteen. That’s the most important thing about him. He’s been in the movies so long you’d think he’d be older by now; really knocking on, like… oh, I don’t know. Twenty-two or something. But nope. Nineteen. Wholesome as a tofu omelet. And as good-looking as all get-out.

When River isn’t making movies, he’s making music. He lives with his family in Gainesville, Florida. Ever been to Gainesville? Neither had I. North central Florida isn’t exactly a tourist hub, being humid, flat, spotted with alligators, and at least a hundred miles from the ocean in any direction. But it’s warm, and Arlyn Phoenix likes the heat. And Gainesville (population ninety thousand and rising) has thirty-five thousand college students living there. The University of Florida, one student told me, is about the cheapest public university in the entire United States, which is why it’s busting at the seams with crop-headed, athletic-looking boys in white T-shirts and bermudas who play football by floodlight until the early hours of the morning. Arlyn Phoenix liked the idea of a university town when it came to settle finally, because she wanted plenty of cultural facilities for her brood of children: arts, music, drama.

River Phoenix isn’t crop-headed of course. And he doesn’t wear bermudas. He arrived at my hotel in his mother’s car wearing a jade green Gap sweat-shirt, navy blue long johns, and tennis shoes. He’s grown since we last saw him (in Running on Empty - what a tearjerker). He’s now five eleven (“Barefoot!”), slim as a willow and hung with wisps of beard like Florida’s Spanish moss. He wouldn’t shave them off, even for Bruce Weber’s pictures. He didn’t have to fatten up for his new role in Lawrence Kasdan’s I Love You to Death. He plays a pizza chef who has a fairly off-center weltanschauung and tries to help his boss’s wife (Tracey Ullman) attempt to murder her husband (Kevin Kline) numerous times .He’s a lean pizza chef, playing his age. (He put on fifteen extra pounds for Stand by Me because he was fourteen playing twelve and fatter looks younger.) After I Love You to Death comes Dogfight, directed by Nancy Savoca. I’m really looking forward to it. River plays a marine who has a bet with the other guys that he’ll pick up a worse dog - an unhandsome woman - than any of them. This should be a real coming-of-age movie and the first that he’ll have to carry on his own. Director Savoca says, “River has an emotional weight that other young actors just don’t have.”

We went for coffee in Gainesville. The teenage waitress was a little excited, but she kept her cool. “Do you have Venezuelan coffee?” No. “Do you have carrot juice?” No. “Well, I’ll just have a double espresso then,” he said, and promptly ticked away for hours about how hyper he felt from the caffeine. I told him he was a pinup even in the British teen mags and then immediately wished I hadn’t. So did he. He laid his beautiful head on the table and groaned with real embarrassment. “A pinup. Oh, God. I wish you hadn’t said that. A pinup!” He told me about the publicity stills that were taken of him “when I was younger.” You do everything they tell you, he said “they teach you how to pose, you know, they say, ‘you have to do it like this!’ And you tilt your head, and they show you how to push your lips out and suck in your cheek… oh, oh [groans] and then all the outtakes that you never want to see again in your life go through the teen magazines forever. Oh. oh [more groans].”

It was very funny, but he meant it. Gentlemanly modesty is River’s strong suit.

River’s press so far has been a combination o large paragraphs about the state of the planet (which can read kind of irritating, from a fifteen-, sixteen-, seventeen-year-old) and a “Wow, freaky!” examination of his unconventional family. Let’s take the family first. Arlyn and John Phoenix (him I didn’t meet - he was in Mexico with Leaf Joaquin) had a pretty wacky life until they go to Gainesville (and compared with Married… with Children mainstream America it’s still a tad wacky). They were sixties dropouts, they were on the road, they thought LSD was a truth serum, they found God, joined a sect, went to South America as missionaries (River was fluent in both Spanish and English from age three), had their babies by natural childbirth, believed in a Whole Earth… you know.Arlyn and John seem to have followed the beat of the sixties drum harder than most, and instead of turning into eighties yuppies, they’ve hung on in there. They are now perfectly regular folks, with twenty acres of property, a few cars, a few bank accounts, a cook, a gardener, a business manager, and five handsome kids, most of whom are actors, but - they do vegetables instead of drugs now, they don’t eat animal products, don’t waste paper, wear leather, or overconsume any of the planet’s resources. They have SAVE THE RAINFORST stickers on their cars, and their two big dogs, a Doberman-German shepherd mix and a full German shepherd, are both vegans. 


Bangalore Days warm fuzzies 2/∞

Gatecrashing the first night for one last picture

(2 Years of Bangalore Days)

anonymous asked:

Rey, Finn and Poe are the heroic trio of TFA? For me, Rey, Finn and Han are the true heroic trio of TFA, they are the good side characters that the movie takes most of its time to focus on, and they are the characters who undergo the most character development. Just like in ANH Han develops in TFA from not wanting to take part in the war to sacrificing himself for his son. Poe goes from a sassy awesome pilot to a sassy awesome pilot. Perhaps he'll be more important in the future films...

…but I haven’t watched them yet so I can’t tell for sure. If marketing is any indication for how the movie goes than Phasma should’ve been the main character of TFA lol.

THIS. My main issue with the disproportionate importance people place on Poe is that it disregards that Poe is a shallow character. He has no journey and no development in The Force Awakens. There is nothing wrong with that at all, and that’s because he’s a supporting character who’s there to do exactly what the word ;’supporting’ would suggest - ‘support’ the other characters’ stories and growth. That may well change in The Last Jedi since it sounds like Poe is given a more prominent role, but I can’t comment on that since I haven’t seen the film yet.

As it stands, the main characters with journeys and development in TFA are Rey, Finn, Han and Kylo. That, as far as I’m concerned, is a statement of fact. It’s nothing to do with disliking Poe.

I think it’s really important that Dan posted this tweet. I know he talked about Moonlight in his liveshow but reinstating his views shows that he really does believe how important this movie is. Not only is it about the LGBT community, it’s about gay poc. 

As a society, we NEED more representation of people of colour who are part of the LGBT community. Intersectionality is so incredibly important and is hardly ever seen in lgbt films. In fact, most LGBT films centre around white, male, gay men. There exists within all facets of society hierarchies of privilege. Therefore, within oppressed groups there are hierarchies of privilege. Representation of the varying people within oppressed and marginalised groups needs to be more prevalent, and Moonlight succeeds in representing protagonists who are rarely seen within media. 

By tweeting this, Dan is using his platform to direct people towards the voice of poc within the gay community. This is what people who hold privilege need to do more; not talk over other voices, but direct people towards the voices of those with less privilege.

I’m not going to praise Dan for doing this, because I think that someone with such a huge platform as his and who purposefully engages in societal and political discourses should direct people to other voices that aren’t a white man’s. Dan deserves recognition for doing this, but my praise is reserved for those involved with the film Moonlight.

I’m writing this because, to be honest, I don’t see enough intersectionality within the phandom. The reason is fairly apparent; because our blogs are dedicated to two white men. Obviously the frequency of posts that aren’t related to two white men (within the phandom) is going to be fairly low. So therefore I’m taking this opportunity where an intersectional discourse can occur to talk about intersectionality. 

I think moments like these when we can think beyond the parameters of the specific privileges that DnP have as white men are important to note. Because it’s always important to be aware of the privilege that both of them hold. I hope everyone will bear in mind Dan’s privilege and rather than unabashedly praise him, we will take note of these select words, and go and see Moonlight and listen to the voices of those with less privilege and praise them more instead.

TFP - Mycroft residence scene

I am refering to my former theory, that all of TFP is mind palace, so Sherlock’s view, memories and imagination.

The most ridiculous part of the whole episode, completely over the top scene is Sherlock detecting Mycroft. First of all, his sexual orientation.

This is the movie, which he is obviosly enjoying.

Sherlock is framing Mycroft as straight and old fashioned, as he is attracted to a  movie of the 40ties, showing a male detective and a female suspect flirting (funny because we know, that Mark is a married gay man, while Ben… maybe we see here an opposite of the  real life ;-) But this seams to be important for the story, as we did’t see anything about Mycrofts sexual interests before.

When the male character tells ‘I can put you on a close watch…’ the film is starting to brake and we see a home made family film which tells us a lot if we take the time to look at it in detail:

Happy Mycroft…

and a happy, small, slim Sherlock, maybe 5 years old, with their parents at a picnic on the beach.

In the next picture we see the teenage adipose Mycroft with enormous appetite, scolded by his father.

Mycroft instantly pics up on the childhood film.

Sherlock want’s to play with his brother and father…

but Mycroft seams to be more interested in his book.

and is shocked to read

‘I’m back’!

We see the family waving to the person that is filming - and now something realy creepy happens:

Please watch out and explain…

Are this the eys of the woman that we saw in the film before? - Or is the family or Sherlock closely watched since then?

Remember: (S)he was capeable of manipulating people since (s)he was 5!

Maybe it is nothing, but why… did they reverse the picture? It is just for one second!

The difference between both pictures:

1. The facial expression of Mycroft, who looks sad in the first picture without waving, but kind of smiles in this one and also waves back.

2. The mother ist the same as Mycroft, sad without waving in the first picture, now she is smiling and waves, too. ???

Then the film starts melting. When this is Sherlocks memory of that day, something has been manipulated and he has forgotten the rest of it.

There is no Euros, and we do not know who was behind that camera. ((Euros?), Sherrinford, Uncle Rudy?)

When Mycroft leaves the room, Sherlock can’t resist to scare him with Steven King horror movie images like the blue dressed  girl,

(btw. nice reference to the red/blue theory of some reblogged stuff, nice picture of Ben’s parents, too ;-)

the Clown (Mycroft trying to fight the Clown with the sword and the gun does not work, we learn that he is defenceless, like the voice is telling him.)

the bleeding pictures (this painting looks strongly familiar, like Timothy Carlton alias father Holmes, dressed up like Isaac Newton :-)

And the next two picturers are showing a woman that is looking at the Newton picture, so maybe his wife, Mycroft’s and Sherlock’s mother? (Sorry, did’t get a good frozen picture of it.) But the picture that he is looking at, is showing a young, sad man, a ‘Knight’, a ‘Dragon slayer’ maybe this represents Sherlock.

Clearly, we are dealing with a family affair here.

(…and again, there is no image of a third sibling, no image of a sister (or brother), we only get three – … people always give up after three… so are there other images at this wall??? It is all in the dark, and Mycroft stops here at the picture of Sherlock to fight back!!!).

My assumption is, that Mycroft was much like his mother and Sherlock is more like his dad, as you can see in the short family movie before, they are opposites (Mycroft with mum, Sherlock with dad) in the images, here, Sherlock is facing the same direction as the Newton picture does. I am also recalling the Christmas scene in HLV, where we can see both parents today. She seems to be intelligent, but somehow emotionless cold. Dad is warm and caring. ;-)

All of it should show us as the audience, that this all is not real as it is all presented to ridiculous. But if you have any siblings, it is quite understandable that Sherlock is also making fun in imagining, how to scare his elder brother.

Now about the ‘scary’ part. Who is the scary east-wind (Euros), and what has Mycroft to do with it (her)?

(I am refering to my pre-posts on TFP and EUROS here, sorry, I’m blogging the first time in my life, so please be a little patient as I am still learning how to do it properly also no native speaker ;-)

When Sherlock enters the scene trough red curtains (!!!) like in a play, (can never resist the touch of the dramatic), he wears the deer stalker, symbol of his public persona, not his real self (Rebecca, TJLC explained). He is perfectly well, no signs of the stitches or the injured eye (so clearly mind palace, because this kind of injuries need some time to heal.)

Mycroft wears a red tie, and is standing next to the only lamp with a red lamp shade in the entire room, so if red has anything to do with emotions, this is possibly a heart to heart conversation.

Sherlock comes to the conclusions (to set up his mind palace imagery):
1. He has a sister, Euros.
2. His sister is institutionalized since early childhood by his brother
3. Mycroft is terrified of her
(4. She is out now (John, perfectly well, mentions this). I will come back to this later.)

In TAB we learn, that in Sherlock’s mind, John is always smart and more offensive than we see him in real life.

In this scene, he and John are the smart ones, not Mycroft. Sherlock picks up on spoiling Mycroft’s obviously enjoyment of the movie and that he has disabled his security system (very promising :-). So he is researching the persona of his brother behind his smartness.

Sherlock knows that John has been shot at the therapy session (in real life) , the word EUROS and SHERRINFORD, too (I guess, this is what John may have told him , when Sherlock  found him shot, as this infromation is needed to make the mind palace work).  

To make the mind palest version work, it has to be a tranquilizer (we have seen a real gun, no injection gun 4 times in TLD)– but he needs John at his side now to find out the truth.

He has again used his homeless network and will pay the actors, reminding them not to spend the money on drugs :-)

He give the smart explanation and invitation to Baker Street to John, (he does no longer need to be the cleverest person in the room).

‘There is a place for the desperate, scarred and terrified people with nowhere else to run’ – this is how Sherlock thinks about his work as the world’s only consulting detective, so not a dragon slayer ;-)

And this was just the first 7 minutes of TFP - There is much more to be investigated - I will continue with the next scene in 221B, in case you are interested…

P.S.: Rewatched the picture scene again today, there are 5 pictures at the wall, the first is showing a house, maybe the family home. But the last is not bleeding, showing another person… it is in the dark… I asume that Mycroft does not have a picture of himself at the wall, so there might be another sibling… I like to keep you guessing…;-)
