“NamJoon, wouldn’t it be a great thing to have an invisible red tie of fate with the person you are destined to be with; to know that somewhere in this world, there is someone out there, waiting for you just as you wait for them?” her sleepy voice asked as she was hunched over, supposedly studying.

“In a romantic perspective, sure, but in reality, it would only hurt you more at the end.”  He answered curtly, shutting his book and sending her a fleeting glance. “Why? Thinking about marriage already?” it was a childish jab at her, the kind that they always played upon each-other, only this time there was silence as his reply. “Wait, seriously?” his eyes widened in shock, and his heart swelled with pain. “Aren’t you a little bit too young for that?”

She sighed disdainfully and pushed off her `Psychology on the human behaviour` books to the side. “I have one too many debts nowadays; can’t keep up with them, either. Marriage seems like the only way out of this mess, you know?”

The Aftermath Of “I Love You”

This takes place just after Sherlock gets out of Eurus’ game at the end of s4 ep3 of BBC’s Sherlock. 

~~~

Sherlock Holmes dragged his feet up the steps at 221b Baker Street. Each step groaned and creaked eerily as he made his way up to the flat. 

Sherlock felt exhausted. Physically, mentally, and emotionally. The games his sister had created had taken everything out of him. Even when he was shooting narcotics into his arm at a deadly rate, he hadn’t felt so drained as he did now. 

His conversation with Mrs. Hudson a minute before didn’t help. She had scolded him like she was his mother. Then suddenly, she began to cry. Something which completely threw Sherlock off. She was furious with him, but then all of the sudden she was a puddle of tears on the ground.

anonymous asked:

How were steve and bucky? ppl have been saying their relationship wasn't emotional enough and they weren't together enough? And apparently Steve doesn't care at the end??? While I get that nothing can be better than winter soldier was it really that bad?

Hi anon! I’m sorry I didn’t answer yesterday, I was too high on adrenaline. Some spoilers ahead.

I don’t agree about the lack of emotion. There was a lot of emotion, the scene were they see each other for the first time is amazing and every step Steve does in this movie is considering his feelings and emotions for Bucky, their relationship is very much the driving force behind all this. What happens tho is that the directing style is a little different here from TWS. Instead of showing the reveals and spending time focusing on the characters’ faces taking in what happened (which is something I appreciate in films because even without words we can grasp the impact and intensity that the moment caused to the character), in Civil War the movie is so packed with action and with so many characters and motivations to outline that the characters are showed reacting to the things that happened instead of being shown contemplating and assimilating them. I prefer the more intimate way of TWS because it allows us to absorb and soak in the moment way more, and the other direction style is more like getting hit in the head time after time, you leave the theater emotionally drained and kinda dizzy, but it’s also good, just different approaches. 

And Steve cares a lot. I can’t believe people are saying that he doesn’t. Did I wanted some tears, promises or hugs? Yes. But Steve is not how we read in fics and we spend so many time reading fics sometimes we can get a little disappointed when the canon character doesn’t meet those expectations, but on screen they are a little more subtle. What happens is that Steve respects Bucky’s choice, because no one else did in the last decades. Steve showed during this whole movie, how selfish he can be to get what he wants. And he wanted Bucky back. When Bucky takes his decision, Steve immediately gives up of what he wanted, of his kinda selfish personal agenda to let Bucky have his choice. And that shows how much he is willing to do for Bucky. He spends the whole movie trying to get him not caring about anything beyond what he wants just to let him go by the end because it was Bucky’s choice and Steve surrender his own needs to make sure Bucky is doing what he wants, since he got no choices during all the years he was tortured and brainwashed. Did it hurt? Fuck yes. But it just added to the complexity of their relationship and how much Bucky influences Steve, how differently he behaves when it comes to Bucky and how he is Steve’s number one priority, his own desires be damned. 

The Dunbonnet’s Cave: Chapter 2, Beltane

The first chapter can be found here, and all my stories can be found here.


A/N: This story is divergent from the books, rather than the show. Assume that Claire hasn’t spoken to anyone except Frank about Jamie. The poem is the famous, “To a Mouse,” by the incomparable Robert Burns.


The whole story poured out of me that evening after the girls had gone to bed. I hadn’t meant to say anything, but Mrs. Graham possessed not only a sympathetic ear, but an open mind as well. When she asked me about the relevance of the poem by Catullus, I told her everything, and to my relief, she believed me openly and without hesitation. Grateful tears sprang to my eyes at her gentle acceptance. I had told Frank the truth, but he had simply thought me mad. And even if he hadn’t, my current husband was the wrong man to speak with about how badly I missed Jamie. It was unreasonable to expect understanding from him. But with Mrs. Graham, I found a friend and a kindred spirit.

After I eventually fell silent, Mrs. Graham said the words I had been too afraid to say aloud, the ones I could hardly bear to contemplate. “So he lived. After all that, yer husband survived Culloden and made it home.”
