this might be a lil crappy ‘cuz i’ve never written faranda before but THANK U AND ENJOY <3
“Farah,” Amanda said mischievously, rocking on her heels. “Were
you hiding in the bushes?”
“What? No, no, I
just- I just drove here. Came right up to the door, just now.”
“Right. So you
only just got here?”
“Uh-huh. There’s a leaf in your hair.”
Amanda smirked and leaned forward, reaching out and plucking
something from Farah’s head. She twirled the leaf between her fingers with a
knowing smile. “You know, you should really
clean your car more.”
Farah blushed furiously, rubbing the back of her neck. Okay,
truth be told she maybe didn’t just get
here. That was the plan, originally.
Just get here, go to the door, knock on it and ask Amanda… what she wanted to
ask her. But then she’d just, just freaked
out and turned round and… hidden in the bushes.
So much for playing it cool.
“I, uh…” Farah cleared her throat. “I just came round to ask…
do you… uh… like… food?”
Amanda blinked. “Uh. Well, I kinda need it to live. But
yeah, yeah, food’s pretty cool I guess.”
“Good. Good.” God, she wanted to punch herself in the face. “I just thought, y’know, since we
both like… food. Er, we could, we could go have food. Together. Sometime.”
“You and me?”
“You mean,” Amanda said slowly, tilting her head. “Like a…
Oh, God, she isn’t
into it, ABORT, ABORT- “Y-es?”
Farah blinked. “…Really?”
“Yeah, man, sounds cool.”
“Good! Good, that’s- good!”
“You’ve, uh… you’ve got another leaf in your hair.”
Farah’s breath caught as Amanda leaned into her space again,
reaching behind her head to grab the leaf with a sly smile.
And when Amanda stretched the rest of the way to steal a
quick, playful kiss, she pretty much lost the capacity to breathe altogether.

☆ word count → 6.3k
The long time running game between you and your brother’s best friend started when you noticed his fascination with boobs—yours specifically. It was never supposed to amount to more than harmless flirting and lingering glances, but now, one year later, Jimin was ready to change that.
alternatively: Jimin and you play a game. the loser is fucked. metaphorically. literally. all the above??
→i had to split this into 2 parts rip (& in this work of fiction, jimin’s penis isn’t a jelly bean) happy 3 months !!
Diana and Steve have like 7 kids, all girls, and most of them have Greek mythology names except for one who’s named after Steve’s mother, so that’s how they ended up with: ADRASTEA, EVADNE, HECUBA, Mary, IANTHE, OENONE, AOIDE
Like a whole bunch of other people, I saw @charminglyantiquated ’s Elsewhere University Comic and got SUPER INSPIRED. And since she’s so generously encouraging other people to play in her sandbox, I present ‘Feathers’. EDIT : PART 2 HERE
You go to Elsewhere University. You’ve been going to Elsewhere University for (years and years and years and years) for three years now. You know how things are. You’re not an RA, but… Mm, you could have been.
Might still be. Aren’t yet.
This is your junior year (you think). You know how things are. You carry salt in one pocket, iron in another, trinkets to bargain away in your book bag, offerings in your purse, pearls around your neck.

and maybe the truth is: i don’t love you. maybe i only love the idea of you and even just the idea of love. maybe i’ve spent so long looking and waiting for love that i fell in love with it and you just happen to be there.
People make fun of me for being single and never dating anyone, but I don’t want to. I don’t want a relationship. I don’t want someone to feel obligated to text me all the time, and compliment me like crazy. I don’t want someone whose always gonna sugar coat or for me and be nice. I don’t want someone whose gonna hide stuff from me. If you wanna text me great, text me. If you think I look nice say so. I want someone whose gonna be blunt and tell me how it is. I want someone who can make me laugh till I can’t breath. I want someone who is gonna be my best friend and my lover. I want someone who I can talk about pizza rolls with and have the deepest conversations. I want someone who I can tell them Everything I have been and who I wanna be. I want someone who wants to go on crazy adventures and travel. I want someone who I can chill with in sweat pants and eat chipotle, or go out and party my ass off. I don’t need expensive dates or gifts, or undivided attention. I just want someone who wants me and just me. So it’s not that I don’t want a relationship, it’s more that there is no one who is worth a relationship…yet.
every time i meet an adult that says that children are liars, i automatically distrust them. yes, some kids lie. but you need to focus on why your kid feels the need to lie before you start labeling all children as liars. they may need attention for a reason more complex than you write it off as.
do you know what calling children liars does? it guarantees that the day a child comes to you with the truth, asking for help, maybe over a matter as grave as their god damn lives, youll disbelieve them and let that child suffer. what happens to them will be your fault because you didnt fucking save them. and if it rots their mind when they grow up, itll be your face haunting them just as much as their abusers’
Maybe it was the alcohol, maybe it was the truth, maybe I didn’t want things to turn abstract, but I felt I should say it, because this was the moment to say it, because it suddenly dawned on me that this was why I had come, to tell him “You are the only person I’d like to say goodbye to when I die, because only then will this thing I call my life make any sense. And if I should hear that you died, my life as I know it, the me who is speaking with you now, will cease to exist.”
From point A to point B really.. but I’m open to interpretations :)
“Had another talk about where it’s going wrong, but we’re still young, we don’t know where we’re going but we know where we belong” - I can picture Gemma being someone he talks to when he needs advice on something serious. He’s always saying how she’s smarter than him and stuff. And I think Harry’s road ahead is new one, and maybe an unsure one for the first time in years.. And maybe Gemma feels the same? But the one thing they have, is a strong home life :) “We know where we belong”. ❤️ And yeah, they’re both young, duh.
“We started two hearts in one home.” They def did :)
“It’s hard when we argue. We’re both stubborn, I know.” I can see this lol. Them arguing a bit over silly things sometimes, and I def think Gemma can be stubborn. (not in a negative sense, but she’s very opinionated and clever and I don’t think she’s afraid to tell him the blunt truth, and also, maybe stuff he doesn’t wanna hear sometimes. Like siblings do, hehe.)
“When I run out of rope (road?), you bring me home” Again, she’s someone he can count on when he’s a bit directionless and/or needs advice.
“Sweet creature, we’re running through the garden, where nothing bothered us” An imagery of them running around in their garden as kids, and how he sometimes thinks about simpler times when they were young, like nostalgic thoughts :)
“I always think about you and how we don’t speak enough” They grew up and Harry has been traveling the world since he was 16 basically.. and he’s always mentioned how the one thing that’s negative about his job is that he doesn’t see his family much, and I can imagine that Harry sometimes can forget to call/text? Like, I don’t think he means anything by it, I can just see him as someone who sometimes just zones out from that stuff, ‘cause he’s not huge on social media and stuff and he prefers actual face to face convos. Which with his job, is difficult sometimes :p And I can see him thinking about how he wishes they spoke more, and meaning to do something about it, but then time just slips away from him… maybe esp when he was away on tour, which he was pretty much every year, you know. And then it was the album and Dunkirk, so.
He’s repeating this sentiment of how they don’t talk enough, and they’re both stubborn and yadda yadda haha, but in the end, he just really misses this person, and they’re always in his thoughts and he values them so much.
TST is just all kinds of weird. Everything feels off,
and even the first third, which is supposed to be light-hearted and funny, is
unsettling in many ways (for instance, why was John, a doctor, driving the car when his wife, Mary, was going into labor instead of having Sherlock drive?
We know Sherlock can drive very well from THoBV, so wtf? And why would Sherlock
ever say that Mary is better than John when it clearly hurt
John that he’d say that? And what was the narrative point of the dog being
there, apart from the fact that Sherlock likes dogs? Anyway, I digress.)
One theory that I’ve seen going around is that Sherlock is narrating this episode, and therefore,
we’re dealing with an unreliable narrator. If Sherlock is in fact telling this
story to his therapist, Ella, at the end of the episode, and is lying about some parts of his story,
then what is he lying about? Well, one option is that he’s lying about how Mary
died in order to protect someone. But he’s Sherlock… who would he bother
“It’s always you, John Watson.” Of course. It
probably has to do with John. With saving and protecting John, as is Sherlock’s
One theory by @the-7-percent-solution that I’m extremely fond of at the moment is
that John killed Mary, and Sherlock is lying to his therapist in order to protect John (just
like Watson may have lied in the original ACD story Charles Augustus Milverton to protect Holmes after Holmes
presumably killed Milverton, which is what Mofftiss believe happened), and to give John an alias. Which would
mean that quite a lot of the episode is either a fabrication, or changed
slightly in order to make the story more convincing.
And, since I noticed that there is
a LOT of blue in this episode, I decided to go through and examine the most
blue-lit and blue-colored scenes, and see if I anything popped out at me. Something
did. It might be nothing, but I’m gonna roll with it and see where it goes.
This is the scene where Sherlock discovers the A.G.R.A. memory stick in the Thatcher bust, and fights with Ajay. Everything in this scene is blue, or lit up with blue: the pool, the pool lights, the waves painted on the walls (real subtle with the Water Thing there, Mark), the police lights. It’s overwhelmingly blue. Which means that, if blue coloring or lighting means that Sherlock is lying (and I will explain why I think that might be the case in just a second) then Ajay’s story about why he’s actually hunting down Mary - or even the way/reason that Sherlock discovers the memory stick - might be either a lie, or a half-lie on Sherlock’s part (assuming he’s telling Ella all this after it’s happened.)
These screenshots are taken from the montage of Rosamund Mary’s escape trip. Again, there is quite a bit of blue, especially in the transitions and maps. And the dice. Again, just like the scene where Sherlock finds the A.G.R.A. memory stick, this part of the narrative has been twisted or is unreliable. We’re not seeing the full truth here. Maybe Rosamund Mary had a much more sinister reason to leave London than just escaping another assassin. (I’m not sure this part holds up as well as some of the other blue-colored scenes, but still. I thought it was very interesting how they stuck with this one-color scheme across so many scenes in this episode.)
This is the scene where Rosie begins crying, and John texts the girl from the bus stop. Again, everything in this scene is pretty damn blue; at least it stood out as being strangely blue to me. I mean, c’mon, even the bathroom tiling and towels are blue:
So maybe that means that this scene isn’t entirely true, either. The unreliable narrator - Sherlock, possibly - has embellished or left out something critical to understanding (in context) this scene. I’m not entirely sure what to make of this one, but maybe someone can help me out with figuring out how/why this scene might possibly have been a lie or a half-lie.
So I think this one is pretty self-explanatory. This whole scene is so strange and off, as many people who are much better at this whole meta thing than I am have already pointed out (I.E., John, an army doctor, not doing anything other than talk to his dying wife when he could clearly do so much more to help save her… jfc?)
Maybe Rosamund Mary didn’t really die in this sccene. Maybe, after finding out something about Mary’s past or present while confronting her about the A.G.R.A. memory stick or Morocco (again, assuming that both those scenes weren’t shown to the audience exactly how they happened) John killed her, and Sherlock’s protecting John by not telling the story how it really happened. Or maybe it’s something else… but there is an incredible amount of blue in this scene, which very clearly connects it (for me) to the previous scenes I’ve mentioned.
After Rosamund Mary’s death scene, the camera pans up and we get this shot:
A blue shark. And since sharks have repeatedly been associated with villains already on this show, that’s pretty damn suggestive. The shark is still swimming - it hasn’t stopped, and therefore it hasn’t died.
After the blue shark, we immediately get this shot a box (coffin? Ashes?) burning with blue flames:
Again, this is sticking to a common color scheme present in many other
scenes that could easily have been changed or fabricated to hide a much
more sinister side of Rosamund Mary, and a very different version of
that aquarium scene. So maybe Rosamund Mary isn’t actually dead, or the how/why of her death is a lie, or, or, or…
And that brings me to why I think that blue might be important. In one of the last scenes in the episode, we see that Sherlock is in therapy, and trying to figure out what to “do about John.”
Strangely, the therapist, Ella, has an office that’s painted blue: walls, ceiling, everything. (It is also shaped similarly to the tube in the aquarium, and lit in a very similar way to the room where Rosamund Mary died, but I’m not entirely sure that has any significance?) Oftentimes, when pressured to make something up or lie about something, people will look to what’s around them to help them come up with material for their lies. So if Sherlock is recounting this story from his memory, isn’t it possible that his surrounding are leaking into how he sees those memories, especially the ones that aren’t coming from his memory because they’re partially or fully falsehoods?
And then the episode ends on this shot:
More blue, with Sherlock framed in front of water, on his way to “save John Watson.” Real subtle, Mark.
