one thing that’s always bothered me about most people’s depiction of Holmes’s usage of cocaine is that most people in Victorian England were only just beginning to realize how badly it affected people???
like tbh I feel like a better modern equivalent would just be Holmes dumping a five hour energy into his fifth cup of coffee while Watson, a trained medical professional, stares at him in horror
While rummaging through a box he found in the attic, England uncovers some old photos, along with old memories.
(These took so long to make, I hope you guys like them! I was trying to put subtle stuff in the photos to try and tell a story, I’ve never done it before so it was good practice! I might end up writing something for this if I decide to stop being lazy.)

My grandmothers house (A WW2 air control tower in the Cotswolds, England). Only ten minutes drive from the main road but with the surrounding forest feels totally isolated and more than a little spooky in the tower. I grew up in the upper level of the tower but now wouldn’t even consider staying overnight. @sixpenceee your kind of place?
forgot about this i made this in 2015,,AU idea where england accidentally sleeps on the subway home and he ends up 2hrs away from his house. Alfred, a police officer, patrolled the subway that day notices arthur asleep for those two hours and wakes arthur , who freaks out. Arthur tries to play it cool and gets off the train (al also gets off with him). well later arthur tells alfred that he was lost all along and they spend the whole night trying to get to arthurs house ((THENTHEYDATEANDSHIT//i wrote gilbert twice lmfao))
his eyes were green like emeralds so green they were like staring into the rarest form of emerald so emerald were his eyes I can't imagine anything more emerald it's as if God took two emeralds and shoved them in his fucking eye socke-
So after the seven years war some British troops who were in charge of surveying and inventorying abandoned french forts, found stockpiles of American made supplies. You can expect a very broke England who just fought a very long war wouldn’t take to kind to know that American’s were selling to both sides.
Also before the stamp act the other taxes that England imposed on America really weren't all that bad like the sugar tax actually went from 0.06 cents to 0.03 cents. The only difference was England actually started enforcing the tax hardcore instead of allowing the American courts who were pretty leadeant about the whole thing.
The stamp act became an issue because newspapers printers and lawyers use a lot of paper and there the last people you want to piss off lol.
