today is trying to kill me


The post about important Sherlolly moments that was on my dash today inspired me to make a gifset.  This is one of my favorite Sherlolly moments, which always seems to fly under the radar.  It’s the key moment to the “Jim from IT” scene.  I did an analysis of the scene a couple months after TRF aired, while I was working on a fanfic, and it still kills me how many people still miss the importance of this section of the scene. 

This is the first time we get to see that Molly counts. Look at Gif 2.  That is the moment that Sherlock notices Jim trying to secretly pass Sherlock the phone number.  This gifset is Sherlock’s unguarded reaction and initial decision on how to approach the situation. 

Here’s an excerpt of my old post about the "Meet Jim from IT" scene that covers this moment:   

As he’s about to return to looking into his microscope, Jim drops the dish off the table and apologizes profusely. Sherlock stares down at Jim as though he’s simply an idiot (the same way Sherlock stares at most people)…. that is until Jim replaces the dish.

When you’re watching the scene for the second time, you already know that this is the moment when Moriarty slips Sherlock his number; and, if you’re paying attention, Sherlock’s reaction is amazing. The fact that nobody has caught it and discussed it is a bit disappointing. Watch it! Then watch it again and marvel at the perfection of Benedict Cumberbatch’s performance.

Sherlock’s jaw just hangs there, and he looks away with an offended, shocked expression. He doesn’t just go back to his microscope the way he normally does after his brief comments or glances during this scene. He sits there for approximately six seconds staring off into space and looking increasingly troubled before returning to the microscope. That’s around the same amount of time it took for him to decipher the Bond Air email for Irene Adler. During this time Sherlock’s also listening to Jim confirm his next date with Molly, and Sherlock’s mouth opens further like he really wants to say something but is holding back. This is it. This unguarded six seconds of internal struggle is the first moment where you see how much Molly counts.

Imagine if this situation were to happen while John was introducing Sherlock to one of his girlfriends. Sherlock’s response would probably be pretty much identical: offense and disbelief towards the girlfriend who is betraying his friend by flirting with Sherlock and a serious moment of pondering how to proceed. Sherlock will happily manipulate his friends to get what he needs… making John coffee with potentially drugged sugar… no problem… human testing on John in the Baskerville lab… no problem… flirting with Molly to get what he wants from her… no problem. An outsider doing any of these things to his friends… problem. It’s like the difference between Mycroft telling Mrs. Hudson to shut up and Sherlock doing it.

From this point he refuses to even acknowledge Jim. He’s not just being antisocial Sherlock here. He’s not just absorbed in his analysis. He’s not being condescending about relationships or feelings. You see him reach a mental decision in the moments before he returns to that microscope. He’s sending Jim a message that he’s not interested, and he’s sending it practically and pointedly. He’s also sending it in such a way as to try to keep Molly out of the loop rather than immediately announcing that her date is hitting on him. He’s avoiding creating a big, ugly scene. That’s rather protective behavior, especially in light of what happens later. Sherlock is capable of tact. He’s using it right there.

The fact that Moriarty fails to list Molly among Sherlock’s friends after this is a bit surprising really, and perhaps it tells us more about how Moriarty values the people around Sherlock than how Sherlock values them. Perhaps Moriarty misses Sherlock’s reaction to the number slip, as Moriarty does look directly at Molly after replacing the dish and moves to her side. Perhaps he just doesn’t know how to read Sherlock. Either way, it’s the moment of Moriarty’s fatal mistake.

Had a lil thought today about Owen and Claire lining up for something together, Claire being drowsy and leaning into him and Owen wrapping his arms around her from behind and swaying softly. And Claire thinking she could be there forever

(ARE YOU TRYING TO KILL ME?! This is so cute!)

On May the 4th (duh!) the local theater near their house was playing the original Star Wars movies, and of course, Owen had to drag her to see at least one of them because it was not the same as watching them on the TV, and of course, there was a mad line of equally dedicated nerds. And of course, it was nearing 10PM on a Friday, meaning that they both had to wake up pretty early for work this morning, and Claire was half asleep, but she didn’t have it in her to say no, especially with the possibility of sleeping in the following day. 

The line was moving slowly and it was getting chilly, so Owen wrapped his arms around her - to keep her warm and also to keep her standing before she fell asleep on the sidewalk. He kissed her temple and told her that he missed her and loved her, and then rested his chin on the crown of her head, Claire’s hands clasped around his wrists on her waist. 

They could hear the music coming from the nearby cafe, the smell of popcorn was hanging in the air, and he was warm and safe and cozy around her, feeling like home, and frankly, she didn’t even care that she was tired - it was so nice her heart all but melted in her chest. 

She was almost sad when it was their turn to finally buy the tickets. 

the worst thing about being australian on this god forsaken website is when it gets to september and everyone from the northern hemisphere is like ‘today i consumed 3 pumpkin spice lattes and picked my halloween costume and had a sexually charged encounter with a pile of leaves!!!!’ and all that ever happens to me in september is that a bunch of misguidedly defensive birds try to fuckign kill me

  • (The Team is going through a plagued area, trying to stop a bio-weapon. They stumble across a civilian in the streets, dying of the plague)
  • Civilian: Kill... me...
  • Widowmaker: Okay.
  • Tracer: Amélie!
  • Widowmaker: What? You heard him.
  • Tracer: We’ll take him with us.
  • Junkrat: orget it, he’s already dead. Look at him.
  • Tracer: Well then…..we should at least finish him. Show him that much mercy.
  • Junkrat: Shame to waste the ammo, mind.
  • Genji: I’ll do it with my blade. It’ll be quick and painless, an honorable death.
  • Mercy: Haven’t enough people died today? We’ve got to take him back to the command post, he needs medical attention!
  • Junkrat: Flip a coin?
  • Mercy: No! I’m not leaving him!
  • [(A sickening crack is heard- everyone turns to Widowmaker, who is kneeling beside the civilian, his neck twisted 180 degrees)
  • Widowmaker: Oh no. While none of you were looking, he succumbed to his illness and died. Farewell weary traveler. Your journey has ended. Can we move on now?

Big Girl Appreciation Day 👑

Right: June 2014
I just turned 19 , finished my first year of college and was working in retail for my very first time . I was extremely stressed from school/work and depressed that I tried to kill myself on March 19th , 2015 . Nobody knew I was dealing with depression because I’m the type of person who always had a smile on my face everyday . I felt like nobody in the world such as my family and friends would care if I talked to them about it that’s why I didn’t try but I was completely wrong .

Left: Present ( 2016 )
Today , I am extremely blessed to be able to have another opportunity to live and make it to see 21 this past summer . A lot has changed for me in 2 years , my self-esteem and the love I have for myself have improved so much . I had lost a few friends but I gain new ones and even a relationship . I’m just so proud of myself that I have overcome my depression and no longer afraid to ask for help . I know I am still a working progress but just know I am a beautiful black queen who can overcome anything thrown my way .

Woke up late today because homecoming killed me. My cousin and I got our nails done but I messed mine up as soon as we left the salon. Typical. Did our homework right after and I’m trying to finish 3 essays today because I have a million more to write. Also bought Ariana Grande concert tickets today so now I’m broke but I’m really excited!

2 November 2016 // [1/100 days of productivity] There are 4 exam essays (10 000 words) that stand between me and completing this English Lit degree. Crunch time. Decided to start 100 Days of Productivity to help me stay motivated and focussed. Feeling slightly overwhelmed trying to finish one degree while staying up to date with the LLB I’ve just started. But I know I can absolutely kill it if I put in the hard and long hours and give it my all. Hope everyone is crushing their goals (no matter how big or small) today and showing the world what they’re capable of!!

The signs as shit my brother has said.
  • Aries: Adults use spoons instead of hands.
  • Taurus: Don't look at your hotdog while its in the microwave or it gives you cancer.
  • Gemini: *punching his wall* I PLAY VIDEO GAMES TO RELAX.
  • Cancer: I would rather kick MY OWN ASS than watch you try to read My Immortal again.
  • Leo: *At family dinner* (wake me up) WAKE ME UP INSIDE.
  • Virgo: my room is cleaner, therefore mom loves me more.
  • Libra: *playing GTA* MOM, MOM I KILLED A MAN TODAY.
  • Scorpio: I can and will set you on fire with a sandwich.
  • Sagittarius: did you see that one episode of family feud where snoop dog said pie in the horse?
  • Capricorn: *punches self in the face* *curls up on the ground* government...
  • Aquarius: one day you're going to meet an alien and instead of dating it like you think you will, it's going to incinerate you for fuel.
  • Pisces: fuck you I'm the fish and I will slap a bitch like one.

I wasn’t even wondering what they were saying because their faces said it all!!!  Their acting is always A+ but today’s performance was flawless!! And the edit?  The black cuts killed me. I was so worried what was gonna happen next!! Isak looking for Even, I was desperately trying to spot him too! When Sonja said Even was fine with the police, I realised I was holding my breath too, just like Isak. It was a surreal journey, I was Isak every step of the way. 


Divine: The Series gag reel

Story time!

I fought a Khepri today. He was trying so hard to save his team but they just kept walking into blood baths. I felt so sorry for him. Eventually I cornered him and I would have definitely killed him. But he waved at me. I couldn’t bring myself to kill him. So I waved back and ran as far as my winged sandals could take me. Later in the match I was in a bad spot and was chased by Erlang Shen. He would have easily killed me if he caught me. He was so close to catching up to me but the Khepri from before, body blocked him enough to let me get away. I don’t condone sabotaging your own team, but I have never seen such mercy in Smite. They surrendered soon after.

Moral of the story is, no matter how small a good deed, it can always be returned in kind. Also don’t trust Khepris. Their hearts are too soft.

  • Durbe: I am not
  • Vector: Gilag is "I tried to kill him once in a dream"
  • Gilag: Emphasis on "tried"
  • Vector: And Mizael is... Eagle Two
  • Mizael: Oh thank Don.

Sold my soul and killed my wallet trying to collect the Otabek keychain today… but instead of Otabek I have an army of Victor and Chris for show. T~T Pleeeease, if anyone has Otabek (or any of the other missing 3) I’m willing to trade my extras. Or… if anyone wants to save a wallet by buying a duplicate keychain, hit me up. :3

EDIT with prices?!
