now where are those new sherlock stills

Bad Teeth [Sherlock Holmes x Reader]

Author’s Note: This is another one of those times where I’m posting something I’d written long ago, for the sake of posting. I did want to write a fic today but of course, homework comes first, and part of my homework involves writing a lot of poetry, which depleted my creativity for the day! And now I’m very tired. I need to watch season 4 of Sherlock still. When I have the time. So then I can maybe start writing new things for the lovely detective.

HI i requested a while ago about sherlock x reader fluff but harry potter au where they're both ravenclaws (i cant say i remember the exact plot) and i just read your rules just now and idk if i said please. so PLEASE. you're amazing!! (i have like 3-4 other requests i still dont know if i put please whoops so please i love you)

Oh yeah, I remember. Don’t worry, your request was fine. The point of that rule is for people to be polite when asking rather than commanding me to write what they want. Also, those rules are “new” so I’m not cancelling any of the past request that don’t follow them by foot.

Anyway, thank you for taking the time, it truly means a lot. 

I love you too. xx.

Things that I don't understand Part I

Starting writing this to keep track right after the episode, but now see that many people share the same questions. Fair warning, I’ve only seen each ep once. 

  • Why did Molly slap Sherlock? Are we meant to think that the test actually came back positive despite her saying he was clean? And if so, why would she lie? It’s not like anyone in the room was going to arrest him. 
  • What the hell was that scene with Sherlock manhandling Mycroft? Why was he so angry? The whole thing just seemed random and bizarre. And why did John support Sherlock as opposed to telling him to get off his brother? Are we to deduce that Sherlock was actually high and that his brother was his breaking point?
  • Magnussen specifically threatened Lady Small-whatsit with the promise to publish pictures of the young woman with whom her husband exchanged letters. He also clearly had a file with the video of John being almost-burnt. How then can he say that he doesn’t keep any files? He clearly does have proof of some things, or at least enough things to get him arrested if the cavalry were to break in. 
  • How on earth was Magnussen planning to have Sherlock and John arrested for trying to sell him state secrets? 
  • I don’t really get the whole handing Mycroft to over to Magnussen plan. Was Mycroft in on it?
  • How did Mary manage to dupe Sherlock? If she’s just a genius at deception, how is it that neither Sherlock nor John want to delve any further into her past? Seeing as she could, I dunno, be faking her entire personality.
  • How are we supposed to feel good about Mary shooting Sherlock to incapacitate him? Am I missing something, because it seems like her options were not just “shoot to incapacitate” or “shoot to kill”; there was also the option of coming clean with John, which would have necessitated no shooting whatsoever. And it’s not like she could be sure her shot wouldn’t actually kill him. She put Sherlock at significant risk of death to avoid telling John about her identity, knowing that Sherlock’s death would break John’s heart. And she’s a good guy?
  • Why doesn’t John care that Mary has this shady assassin past? Just to clarify - is he just taking it on faith that she “had her reasons” for going rogue from the CIA and killing a bunch of people because he loves her? I could totally see John going for an assassin lady, but I have a harder time thinking that he would take her assassin moral code on faith, especially after she shot his best friend and lied to him (and Sherlock!) for months. 
  • Why does Sherlock keep calling himself a high-functioning sociopath??? Even if he were one, why did he scream it before killing Magnussen? I can’t think of a sociopathic justification for what he did; it was clearly self sacrifice. Why make such an effort to call it something else? Was that scene supposed to in some way mirror the “side of the angels” bit with Moriarty?
  • Why doesn’t John seem bothered by the prospect of never seeing Sherlock again? He doesn’t even thank him for sacrificing himself in choosing to kill Magnussen. 
  • Was that conversation with Magnussen where Sherlock inspects his glasses…real?
  • Speaking of real, I’m still bothered by the fact that the end of Reichenbach showed us Sherlock in full tears. If we’re to believe the Anderson story, Sherlock was faking those tears, and didn’t even have that expression on his face. So we were…what? Seeing the face that John imagined  Sherlock was making based on the voice he heard over the phone? Talk about taking your unreliable narrator to a whole new level. Is it crazy of me to now think that scenes that are presented as having actually happened could in fact be completely fake? Like…maybe that Moriarty thing didn’t happen at all or it was somebody’s dream haha jk?
  • Did I miss it, or did Sherlock actually never tell John that he orchestrated the whole fall as a response to snipers targeting John, Mrs. Hudson and Lestrade? I get that they want to make out like it’s not important to John how Sherlock did it (I have a hard time swallowing that, but at least I understand it), but it seems to me that Sherlock intentionally avoided answering the question John did want answered, which was why he did it. Sherlock’s most direct reply to that query was that Moriarty had to be stopped or some rubbish. Was a better explanation actually somewhere in TEH and I just missed it?
  • How is Moriarty back? I suppose this is the one mystery that is supposed to be a mystery, but seriously. I thought we were supposed to think that in the end, Sherlock and Mycroft had the jump on Moriarty the whole time. And also should we just never believe anything Moffat says, because I remember him in particular making fun of the idea that Moriarty could still be alive. 
  • Corollary: is Moriarty back? Or is this some vestige of his organization that Sherlock failed to wipe out? Or maybe someone just using his image? COULD MYCROFT HAVE ORCHESTRATED THE WHOLE THING TO GET SHERLOCK RECALLED FROM HIS SUICIDE MSISION?
  • Continuation of Sherlock and Mycroft having completely control of the Moriarty situation from way back thread: how are we supposed to believe that they had a foolproof plan to defeat Moriarty in which they were completely confident when Sherlock has the guy in a padded room and chained by the neck in his own mind palace? How are we supposed to think Moriarty wasn’t a challenge to Sherlock, didn’t scare the pants off of him?
  • Why is Sherlock so considerate and empathetic in the first two episodes (see, e.g., concern for Mycroft’s isolation, the stepfather/online boyfriend case, and just about every scene with Molly) and then a dick to Janine? In the original story, he knew that the woman he was courting wouldn’t be heartbroken because there was someone standing by to sweep her off her feet when he made his deception known. I guess here we’re to think that Sherlock knew she wasn’t really in love with him? Is the whole thing as inconsistent as it seems to me? Because I kinda thought the idea was that he’d matured and started valuing people. Or something.
  • What on earth are they trying to say about Sherlock’s sexuality? They keep saying it’s not important, but then they kind of make a lot of unnecessary allusions to it. See, e.g., naked Irene (if she wasn’t meant to be an object of sexual interest she probably would’ve been clothed) in the mind palace, “normal” porn preferences (IDEK guys, what does that even mean? Het porn???), refusing to have sex with Janine despite not minding actually hanging out with her naked in the shower and kissing her (yes, he’s such  pragmatist, but he avoided having sex even though it would’ve been the most straightforward route to intimacy), AND MORE…is this all just random? Are we supposed to be gleaning anything from all of this? Besides what we all want to think, that is. Like, is there any authorial intent here whatsoever?
  • Why was John not in contact with Sherlock for a month after he got married? After explicitly telling Sherlock that nothing would change? Even though he was obviously itching for a little excitement and Sherlock’s company?
  • Why was Sherlock not a weak spot for John? I feel like this is just plain wrong. And maybe a typo. 
  • How the fuck are they going to swing a baby on this show?
