fave archetype is definitely the sad noodly neurodivergent gay who secretly cries a lot, has issues with his brother, and misses his childhood pet. oh and who also dies in front of the love of his life only to then return and go through great pains to rebuild what they once had.
“You told me once that you weren’t a hero. There were times I didn’t think you were human, but let me tell you this: You were the best man and the most human human being that I have ever known and no one will ever convice me that you told me a lie, so … there.
I was so alone and I owe you so much.
Oh, please, there’s just one more thing, one more thing, one more miracle, Sherlock, for me: Don’t. Be … Dead. Would you do that? Just for me. Just stop it. Stop this.”
Just listened to it again and noticed that the way I feel about the outcome of series four can be described perfectly by John’s gravespeech.
I still believe, because I’m convinced that we’re reichenbached, but at the same time I feel like, “What have we done at all to deserve that?”
Moftiss, this is your own words adressed back to you.
ME: No, please, there’s just one more thing: one more miracle, BBC Sherlock, for me, for us, for the love of everything pure and beautiful in this world. Don’t… be… dead. Would you do..? Just stop it. Stop this.
I’m sorry but I might already have reached forgiveness stage with Moffat and Gatiss if they pull this off. No-one codes a secret image into a BBC news article for no reason. All the ‘Series Records’ and Season Passes are still up. I believe.
They weren’t trying to make us feel crazy - but show the world we were right all along. And everyone who laughed, every bully, every nasty comment gets to be shown just how ignorant they are. They’re the ones they want to bait, not us.
You don’t have to forgive, god you don’t, but for me - for the effect it had on me personally, this would be enough. Just pull it off. One more miracle. For me.
“You told me once… that you weren’t a hero. Umm, there were times I didn’t even think you were human but let me tell you this, you were, uh, the best man and the most human… human being that I’ve ever known and no one will ever convince me that you told me a lie. That so… there. I was… I was so alone. And I owe you so much. Oh, please, there’s just one more thing, right? One more thing. One more miracle, Sherlock, for me. Don’t… be… dead. Would you, just for me, just stop it? Stop this.”
