“I’d like to see Florent Amodio do my short program. He’d probably do my step sequence very well, much better than me but I’d like to see him do some lifts, be lifted or do the lift.” - Happy 30th Birthday to Vanessa James (9/27)
I was thinking about something Molly said in the ILY scene phone call and somehow it morphed into a cute and also kinda angsty hc.
Y’know how she’s like, “is this one of your stupid games?” Naturally we all start envisioning many off hours phone calls from Sherlock to Molly in which he is in some way or another being a bit of a pain and taking up her time. But what if it wasn’t what she thought?
Imagine if that was actually Sherlock calling many different times with the genuine intent to tell her how he felt…but losing his nerve every single time. But then he’d already be on the phone with her and have to come up with some question or case research to make his call seem legit. I can just imagine him pacing his flat late at night as she questions why he’s calling this time, and feeling his heart sink at the realization that once again he just can’t get the words out. And then he scans his sitting room, eyes narrowing in on something- anything- that can serve as a subject matter and reason for his call. No doubt it would often end up sounding pretty ridiculous.
It both warms my heart and breaks it to imagine all his “stupid games.” 😭💕
