rewatching the final problem just to see watson happy for one second at the end of the episode
Bitch how the fuck did I memorize the entire Holmes Moriarty conversation from the Final Problem, this is sort of embarrassing bro
In a twisted way, Eurus saved Sherlock by making Sherlock save her, just like Sherlock saved John by making John save him
I just finished the last episode of Sherlock
listen, say whatever you want about the finale of sherlock, im with you 100%, but the soundtrack man. nothing is ever going to slap as hard as who you really are. nothing.
the violins. they harmonize, slowly trying to get used to one another. and the moment they do, there’s suddenly a beat. there’s something new there, something exciting—and suddenly it’s a sweeter melody but wAIT, something else is going on because what’s that rumbling?
oh!! more sweet things?? more harmonizing?? more beats? what is going on—hOLY SHIT, THE GAME IS ON
(pursuit version), only that it’s bumpy and upbeat and happy!! and now we’re suddenly being hit by a wave of nostalgia because it’s CHAOTIC. it’s chaotic but it’s beautiful and there’s a sweetness that wasn’t there to it before.
and it keeps going! the violins and the bumps and then wHAT THE HELL, THE INTRO SONG BUT SOFT? in a way that literally screams out family. and then it gets faster. and faster. and faaaaaaster, until it eventually softens out and by the time it does you have goose bumps everywhere and tears are streaming down your face because what the HELL.
it’s not just the characters and the plot that are wrapping the show up: the music is doing it too. who you really are feels not only like a conclusion, but also a summary of the story the soundtrack was trying to tell.
the entire song is overflowing with emotions, and it’s just. it’s everything. it has everything. it’s one of my favorite things that have ever been composed.
Me: *Watches sherlock*
Today (May 4th) is my favorite holiday of the year: Sherlock-Holmes-Pretends-To-Yeet-Himself-Off-A-Cliff Day!!!
Omg I was just watching Sherlock 4x03 and when Mycroft said “This is family” Sherlock shouts at Mycroft “That’s why he stays!”
And John just looks down and smiles to himself a little bit mY hEaRt
STORY OF SIR-BOAST-A-LOT
“Are you ready for the story? This is the story of Sir Boast-a-lot. Sir Boast-a-lot was the bravest and cleverest knight at the round table, but soon the other knights began to grow tired of his stories about how brave he was and how many dragons he’d slain, and some of them began to wonder, "Are Sir Boast-a-lot’s stories even true?” Oh no. So, one of the knights went to King Arthur and said, “I don’t believe Sir Boast-a-lot’s stories. He’s just a big, old liar who makes things up to make himself look good.And then the king also began to wonder if his stories are even true. But that was not the end of Sir-boast-a-lot’s problems.No.That was not his final problem…” -JM
“Because it’s not the fall that kills you, it’s the landing” -JM
Considering how Eurus expresses affection and her need for closeness (trying to murder the object of her affection, here Sherlock)… and how Mycroft expresses affection (through overprotection and excessive control)… I think John is lucky to be the object of the sanest Holmes sibling’s affection 😅
