pure molly

a story even shippers weren’t really quite expecting

First Season:
Black, two sugar. BTW I’m manipulating you.

Second Season:
I don’t count? I don’t cOUNT? WHERE THE HECK DID U GET THAT IMPRESSION YOUNG LADY??!?! You do count. Now that we established that… would you mind help me fake my death? I need you.

Third Season:
Help me solve cases because I’m not good with thank yous. Also… you’re the one who matters the most. Chips?

Fourth Season:
fuck, okay, I love you. There. I said it. Wait.. oh shit. I love you.

I like to think that Sherlock ‘you’re so vain’ Holmes would go into a tizzy the moment he finds a gray hair amongst his curls. He would go into a strop, researching dye options and detractors, obsessing to the point of madness. That is, until he discovers that the gray at his temples lends him a distinguished air… one that Molly finds more than a little attractive. Suddenly, the gray hairs don’t seem so bad and he uses this new aura to full effect. On her.

George Weasley Relationship Headcanons
  • He’s more emotional than Fred, and Fred doesn’t let you, or George for that matter, forget it
  • Every time you tell George that you love him and he says it back Fred will burst in from nowhere yelling things like, “AWWWWWW! Look at the lovebirds!” Or “Oi, get a room!”
  • George buying you a ridiculously large amount of sweets at Honeydukes during Hogsmeade trips
  • Late nights spent in the common room cuddling by the fire so the two of you could get some peace and quiet for once
  • Getting angry at him when he pulls pranks on you
  • But having your anger sated by George kissing you on the forehead and apologizing profusely
  • Laying in the large field behind the Burrow and watching the clouds with him
  • Watching in pure amusement as Molly berates him and Fred about their bad behavior and forever giving him a hard time for it
  • Lingering kisses and squeezes to your waist in between lessons at school
  • Helping him finish his homework because Merlin knows he can’t focus on school for the life of him
  • Getting angry at him when he gets caught doing a stupid prank or mouthing off to Snape so he can’t spend time with you
  • But he makes up for it by sneaking you into his dorm room at night so you can sleep all snuggled into his side
  • Having the Weasleys basically, adopt you into their family because they love you so much
  • Being the best customer at Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes, you’re there whenever you can be
  • Never leaving George’s side during the war, especially after he loses his ear
  • Working tirelessly to keep each other safe
  • Barely sleeping, but when you do, it’s in each other’s arms
  • And after the war, after the loss of Fred, your relationship becomes quite strained for a bit
  • He can’t sleep, he can’t eat, he can barely even function
  • And you are the only one capable of pulling him out of that darkness
  • You are his light, his love, his life

Eurus *texting*: Molly I’m sorry

Eurus: Please talk to me

Eurus: …Molly?

Eurus: The world’s best forensic pathologist?

Eurus: The Holmes’s favorite female doctor?

Eurus: Adorable cinnamon roll too good for this world, too pure

Molly: Sorry doesn’t bring back my ducking Skittles, Eurus.


Whenever I watch Sherlock and Molly scenes from ASiB, TEH and TFP (and even the ones from HLV and TLD), I get this feeling that Sherlock can’t really believe someone with a heart so pure like Molly Hooper could actually be in love with someone like him.

“After all, not all the men you fall for can turn out to be sociopaths.”

“I hope you’ll be very happy, Molly Hooper. You deserve it.”

“So who loves you? I’m assuming it’s not a long list.”

The depth of Molly’s feelings for him surprises Sherlock. It confuses him. Scares and amazes him at the same time.

“All those complicated little emotions, I lost count.”

His facial expressions in the Christmas scene from ASiB and the ILY scene say it all.
Molly really punctures his protective shell. But he doesn’t think he is worthy of her love.

Molly Hooper is not the weak one here. It’s Sherlock.
