You know what else “wasn’t canon in the original stories”?
-The modern day setting -Mobile phones -Texting -Watson having a psychosomatic limp -Watson having a therapist -Watson and Stamford getting Starbucks -Molly Hooper -Mrs. Hudson being married to a leader of the drug cartel -Mrs. Turner and her married gay couple (Mrs. Turner WAS Mrs. Hudson) -Blogs -Laptop computers -Taxi cabs -John’s gay sister -Sally Donovan and Philip Anderson -The lady in pink (the victim was a man) -The scratched message (it was written in blood) -The case being solved in one night -Angelo’s -Holmes and Watson sitting around inquiring about each other’s sexualities and history of significant others -Mycroft kidnapping Watson -Mycroft being in the first story at all (Holmes’ background was pretty much a mystery to Watson until the case of the Greek interpreter; he only made appearances in a couple of the 60 stories, not almost every Goddamn one) -Watson murdering Hope to save Holmes -There was no case of the Blind Banker -Nor the Great Game (there were canon elements tied in - West and the Bruce-Partington Plans - but never in canon did Moriarty challenge Holmes to solve a series of puzzles to save people from being turned into suicide bombers) -Moriarty kidnapping Watson at any point -Moriarty was really only in one story, and foreshadowed in another -Irene Adler being a dominatrix -Adler was involved with the King of Bohemia, not Kate Middleton -Adler being romantically/sexually interested in Holmes -Adler elopes and escapes with her blackmail material in the end of “A Scandal In Bohemia”; she outsmarts Holmes -The fear gas from The Hound Of The Baskervilles
-Baskerville being a secret laboratory
-The glowing rabbit
-Holmes was barely in The Hound of The Baskervilles at all
-Moriarty stealing the Crown Jewels
-Holmes testifying against Moriarty in court
-Kitty Riley or whatever that ginger reporter’s name was
-Moriarty publicly discrediting Holmes
-Moriarty went over the side of a waterfall in Switzerland; Holmes did not willingly jump from the top of a hospital in London. And Watson was not there to witness it.
-Holmes was gone for three years, not two. Before his disappearance, Watson married Mary Morstan and moved out of Baker Street and she passed away some time during Holmes’s absence.
-Mary is a governess, not an assassin, and initially a client of Holmes before marrying Watson
-Sebastian Moran attempts to assassinate Holmes, not Mary
-There is no bomb threat on Parliament
-Watson is not thrown into a bonfire
-Holmes actually explains himself to Watson upon returning and Watson forgives him. He does not beat Holmes repeatedly (in fact, he faints).
-There is no wedding celebration story for Watson and Mary (ACD could barely remember her name)
-James Sholto and Watson have no connection (professional or otherwise)
-Mary and Watson never have children
-Billy Wiggins is a street urchin, not a drug dealing adult
-Charles Augustus Magnussen is actually Charles Augustus Milverton
-Holmes doesn’t court CAM’s PA, he courts her maid (under the guise of a plumber)
-Lady Smallwood does murder CAM, not Holmes
-Mary doesn’t shoot Holmes
-The entirety of The Abominable Bride
-Mary never goes along on cases (outside of The Sign Of Four, she barely gets any dialogue at all)
-Some kid doesn’t disguise himself as a fucking car seat
-The AGRA team
-Mary doesn’t die by gunshot
-Watson doesn’t blame Holmes for Mary’s death
-Mrs. Hudson never stunt drives a Martin Aston
-Culverton Smith only kills one person that we know of, his nephew Victor Savage. There is no mention of a daughter.
-Smith attempts to infect Holmes with a deadly virus, not drugging and smothering him
-Holmes fakes his own illness for Smith’s sake, not for Watson
-THERE IS NO EURUS
-THERE IS NO EURUS
-THERE IS NO EURUS
-Baker Street getting blown up by a grenade
-Sherrinford is the third Holmes brother, and only in paracanon
-The Three Garridebs is totally wrong
-Musgrave is not the Holmes’ summer home
-“Redbeard”/Victor Trevor is not a little boy who was Holmes’ childhood friend. He was Holmes’ friend for university whose dog bit Holmes.
So don’t tell me Mofftiss couldn’t have Sherlock and John be in an openly romantic relationship because it wasn’t in the original canon.
*if you’d like to listen to some tunes during this, i would just recommend the wreck of our hearts by sleeping wolf.. over and over again!!*
There was a
pounding ache in your head. It felt like a million pieces of your brain
shattering to the ground, falling apart into almost nothing. Your throat felt
dry and with the little strength within you, you swallowed the dry spit in your
was blurred and your memories felt cluttered – one here and another there. The
lights were bright in the room, too bright. The ceiling was staring straight
down at you. There were all these wires tangled around you, you felt paralyzed.
Part 4: Chapters 50-65 (this covers the Campania arc and since this arc is heavily inspired by the Titanic incident (and by the movie for it) I’ll also include some references to the Titanic in here). ;)
He has yet to formally announce the news – but Benedict Cumberbatch has become a father for the second time.
The actor’s wife, Sophie Hunter, 39, gave birth to their second son at the £1,200-a-night Portland Hospital in London on March 3. And in true thespian style, Cumberbatch named his boy after a Shakespearean hero.
Hal was the nickname Henry V had before he became the hero of Agincourt. But in choosing the name, Cumberbatch could also be acknowledging his affection for fellow screen star Tom Hiddleston.
The pair starred together in 2012 in The Hollow Crown, an amalgamation of Shakespeare’s history plays in which Cumberbatch played Richard III and Hiddleston took the role of Hal.
The baby’s full name is Hal Auden Cumberbatch, and is a brother to Christopher, who was born in June 2015.
On the Road to Reconstruction with Imprint of Hope
On the road to reconstruction in Baghdad, with volunteer teams from the Imprint of Hope organisation, who have spent over 15 days, doing up the replica Assyrian city gate and the land surrounding it.
From the early hours until late into the night, work included redeveloping the gardens surrounding the gate, trimming the palm trees, washing and removing old paint from the gate, before applying fresh layers to the structure.
This ongoing campaign, is a small but starting point, to recreate both hope and positivity in Iraqi society and Imprint of Hope will continue to reflect this bright image, which in the past has made Iraq truly great.
Since it was founded, Imprint of Hope has painted hundreds of blast walls across Baghdad. It has swelled to more than 370 volunteers from a range of backgrounds, including students, carpenters, iron-smiths, artists and doctors.
In addition to decorating the city’s walls, Imprint of Hope also paints orphanages, nurseries and public buildings, including a children’s cancer hospital.
Last December for Christmas, Imprint of Hope painted the Our Lady of Salvation Catholic Church, which was heavily damaged in a 2010 terror attack. They also painted murals on the blast walls, that were set up to protect the church from further attacks.
Bryce and I had the tremendous pleasure of spending some time with our new buddy Elle and a few other patients at Great Ormand Street Children’s Hospital in London. I’ll never fail to be moved by the unbreakable spirit of a child. #godisgood Psalm 107:8-9 Let them praise the LORD for his loving kindness, for his wonderful deeds to the children of men! For he satisfies the longing soul. He fills the hungry soul with good. 🙏🙌👆♥️ No doubt. Today my longing and hungry soul is filled.
The photograph from the ‘Morning Post‘, that was published on August 19, 1925, shows a nurse carrying children in a donkey cart. The children in the cart are the patients from the Park Royal Hospital, located in Willesden, London
Medical Steggy AU for @peggyrogerx:It’s been eight years on the dot since she last saw her American college sweetheart after a mutual break-up. Now 33, Peggy Carter is an RN working for the children’s hospital in London as a scrub nurse. Everything changes in her already hectic life when renowned paediatric surgeon, Dr. Steven Rogers, arrives from Brooklyn as the new head resident of the cardiac team. Old feelings resurface for the nurse who never thought she’d see the love of her life again, much less work alongside him.
