THIS IS SO BEAUTIFUL
Made rebloggable by request.
Honestly, people just need to stop overshipping.
Interesting fact: No, they don’t.
People can ship just as much as they want, and who they want. They can ship a completely non-canon pairing, and ship it to the ends of the earth. Or, they can ship nothing. They can write fanfiction, or draw fanart, or they can write analytic essays detailing points within a canon, to justify why they ship what they ship. People can disagree with what is considered canon, and they can find subtext in places where there is none. They can discuss, joke, tease, laugh, and argue their ships with other like minded people.
But do you know what people do just need to stop doing? Sending hateful anonymous messages about things that have no effect on them in any way, shape, or form. And this goes for each end of the shipping spectrum. I don’t go into someone’s ask box, berating them for not shipping something. What right do they have, coming into mine, doing the same thing because I do?
This one here? Is possibly the most polite ‘hate anon’ I’ve ever received about johnlock. Most get deleted, because I don’t like to subject my followers to homophobic slurs and bigotry.
This is glorious
This is brilliant, thank you for writing this!
“You smell like strawberries, do you taste like strawberries?…”
Another scan from my new Moleskine-sketchbook. Chinese ink and black marker.
I promised Morrgan ages ago that I would make an illustration for her short-story of Little Red Riding Hood!John and Wolf!Sherlock, LINK TO STORY. In short Sherlock is the big bad wolf and John’s mother should have thought him to not speak to strangers :D. And since John is a child I guess this also makes this kid!lock? I wanted to draw something that was similar to the style of this piece—>[link], since I’ve fallen in love with the style. So I interpreted the story in my own way and changed it a bit to go with the style I was drawing.
I hope you like it M:)
Sherlock is counting on John to believe the worst in him. And John does. For the entire episode up until that point, John has been fighting Sherlock’s corner and defending him no matter what while others have fallen for Moriarty’s plan. And while Sherlock is at first indifferent as to whether people think he is a fraud or not, the one time he does care and starts to panic about it is when he thinks John is beginning to doubt him. It’s a double tearjerker; firstly for the fact that John’s belief in him means so much to Sherlock and then he has to purposely shatter it to save his friend. And secondly; the fact that it worked and John did lose faith in him. It was only for a moment but it was enough for him to turn on Sherlock and leave him all alone to his fate.
For extra heartbreak, what does John says this at Sherlock’s grave, “ Um, you once told me that you weren’t a hero. There were times when I didn’t even think you were human, but let me tell you this- you were the best man, the most human… human being… that I’ve ever known and nobody will ever convince me that you told me a lie.”
John pointing out that he knew Sherlock was the “most human… human being…” functions as an apology because one of the last things he ever did was call Sherlock a machine. It may also be a reference to the fact that John had once made the mistake of calling Sherlock ‘Spock’ when he was in the middle of having a panic attack. John never got a chance to tell Sherlock to his face that he didn’t mean those things. And while we all know Sherlock is alive, John thinks he will neverhave a chance to tell Sherlock he was sorry, and probably thinks calling Sherlock a “machine” and turning on him about Mrs Hudson may have been a catalyst in hissuicide.
On the above, this is John’s current, end-of-season-2 view of events: he was called away to Mrs Hudson. Sherlock coldly refused to go with him. They had an argument which more or less involved John yelling at Sherlock, who was uncharacteristically passive, who couldn’t even force himself to look at John; even more: he was avaiding John’s eyes. Yet John abandoned Sherlock in the lab. He found Mrs Hudson and she was fine. He rushed back to St Bart’s in time to witness Sherlock’s suicide from the roof.Sherlock had shown no signs of being suicidal before. None. The last time he and John talk before the “Mrs Hudson” diversion, Sherlock’s messaged John because he’s apparently had an idea about using the code against Moriarty. It’s nonsense, of course, but to John it’s pretty clear that Sherlock intends to beat Moriarty, and people intent on committing suicide don’t plan for the future like that. The rooftop jump, so far as John would be concerned, would have come out of nowhere. John seems to not know that Moriarty was ever on that roof with Sherlock. The only suicide trigger that would be immediately obvious to him? His turning on Sherlock and abandoning him. Yep, that’s right. There’s no sign that John ever believed Sherlock to be a fraud or a kidnapper, but he was Sherlock’s best friend, and on the lam, his only friend. And when Sherlock was in a dark place emotionally, he made the mistake of criticizing and then leaving him. No wonder he’s in therapy. He blames himself.
And when John sounds like he’s choking back a sob and says, “Probably one the the killers that you managed to attract! Oh Jesus!”
On top of calling him a ‘machine’ and abandoning him, John essentially says that it’sSherlock’s fault that their landlady is dying. Having that sort of guilt on your shoulders on top of the rest of your life falling apart most likely would drive someone to suicide. John can’t be certain whether the thing was set-up by Sherlock or an outside party but the accusation, which even he finds too harsh and has to cut himself off, was still heart-wrenchingly brutal and would add to the list of words that would no doubt haunt John until he discovers the truth.
who invited satan
Wow, thank you for pointing out that heartbreaking plot detail that I had completely managed to miss until this point, not like this episode wasn’t ALREADY SAD ENOUGH SATAN
You know, it could be true. It could be that Sherlock was driven to suicide by John. But he’s selfish. He wanted John to suffer the loss of him, but what’s the point in revenge if he’s not there to see it? He’s angry with John, really angry. But then he sees him in the graveyard and decides that it’s OK. He forgives John right then and there. Possibly for the first time he forgives someone unconditionally because they apologized.
i don’t know if you noticed that we wrote this thing from john’s view, and that’s the most crucial part: john’s. sherlock needed him to leave so he made this situation with mrs. hudson up. it was john who was angry, not sherlock; sherlock was just fulfilling his plan: to kill moriarty. he couldn’t risk neither john’s nor anyone’s life in it, so he forced him to leave.
and then he’s crying on that rooftop, knowing that neither john not moriarty’s sniper can see him. he’s crying because he already knows, at that point, how his suicide (faked, yeah, but john doesn’t know that yet) will affect john. he’s crying because he knows that john is probably starting to wonder why it’s happening and once it’s done he won’t avoid the thought: “what if it was all because of me? because i left?”, he won’t avoid the guilt. he’s crying because he couldn’t make john lose his faith in him, he couldn’t make him stop unconditionally loving and admiring him.
an then in the graveyard there are two guilty people. sherlock isn’t forgiving john, because he’s got nothing to forgive. i think they both apologise for what happened: john confessing that he’s never stopped believing, sherlock who needed to see john, his john, his friend to whom he lied so cruelly, whom he left ‘cause in the end, it was sherlock who left. and now he came to see his friend apologise him. i think he needed it as well, to be able to function, because living knowing that john is no longer his… wouldn’t be possible.
