sherlock 2012

In 2010 you were so concerned with figuring out how Sherlock survived the pool scene you didn’t notice the romance between Sherlock and John. In 2012 you were so concerned with figuring out how Sherlock survived the fall you didn’t notice the romance between Sherlock and John. In 2014 you were so concerned with figuring out how Moriarty could be back you didn’t notice the romance between Sherlock and John. Now here we come to The Final Problem, the problem Moriarty told him about all those years ago: burning the heart out of Sherlock Holmes. Sherlock said “I’ve been reliably informed I do not have one”. Moriarty, who strapped John to a bomb, had a sharp reply. “We both know that’s not true.”

Any guesses as to what love story The Final Problem will contain, or have you simply been too distracted to notice the pattern?

We need a name for this week so we can reference it in the annals of history. There’s the Sherlock fandom 2012 aesthetic, the #mary wank period, and…whatever this week is

MOFFAT: This is going to sound like something from a greetings card, but something Mark and I were talking about – this sounds awful and sentimental, but it’s *love*.    
   
We [Mark and I] love Sherlock Holmes *so* much; we’re *so* obsessed with this.  
 
SUE VERTUE: It’s made by fans.  
 
MOFFAT: –Yeah; this is *fan fiction*. This is – it is an exercise in – yeah, we *love* it.  
 
  We wouldn’t have minded if *nobody* had watched it.  
 
  If we’d been allowed to, we’d carry on making [episodes] for each other.  
 
That’s really – it *is* about love.
— 

Steven Moffat, when asked ‘Why has Sherlock hit home in such a powerful way?’

“he was never really interested in being alive.”

people are legitimately surprised about what eurus said about jim not wanting to be alive??? like???? that was at least half of his his arc, literally.

then we have this quote by my beloved andrew scott:

“I wanted to show little glimpses of Moriarty’s vulnerability. You can’t go down that road too much because that’s not what one’s job is when playing the main antagonist, but you got to see that towards the very end, when we realize he’s going to kill himself. He’s a very desolate, very lonely, very unhappy person.

it’s a reoccurring theme.

he killed himself, even after sherlock ‘redeemed’ himself so why. why are you all so surprised? haven’t you paid attention at all?
