AU: Vintage Sherlock
London, 1959. The grisly murder of an academic puts private eye Sherlock Holmes and his partner, John Watson on the trail of the master criminal known as Jim Moriarty.
‘Anthea’, as the Woman in Black
I would watch the shit out of this.
I recognize every screencap. Yep, I watch a lot of BBC.
Sherlock can’t find the words to apologize to John so he makes due with a picture.
John liked the picture.
Note the magnets on the refrigerator.
Come and play.
But how should I sign it?
He’ll know that’s me, right?
But what if he knows another Jim?
Oh, god. What if he thinks it’s that idiot serial killer Stabby Jim from Manor Park? I hate that guy. Why does he have to be named Jim? Why haven’t I killed him yet?
Maybe if I…
Jim (from the pool)
No. Just—I can’t. No.
Unless Sherlock thinks it’s my brother. Does Sherlock know I have a brother? He might know I have a brother. Why does my brother have to be named Jim? Why does everyone have to be named Jim? Why haven’t I killed everyone yet?
Okay, okay. Calm down. You’re overthinking this. Just keep it simple.
He’ll know who I am. Of course he’ll know who I am. Unless he thinks John’s having trouble telling his Ws from his Ms again. Ha ha ha. I love how stupid ordinary people are.
Initials. Short and to the point. That’s what Sherlock would do.
That’s exactly what Sherlock would do. That’s what he always does—“SH”.
What if he thinks I’m copying him?
Dammit, dammit, dammit.
I’ll just put my whole name.
Seems kind of impersonal, though.
Jim Moriarty x
Now should that have a full stop at the end, or…?
Jim Moriarty x.
> SEND MESSAGE
Oh god, oh god, oh god.
Why did I do that?
I shouldn’t have added a full stop.
Now he’s looking at the full stop, and he’s judging me.
Does this photo not scream “All hail the Cumberlord!”
Our Cumberlord Who art in England,
Hallowed be Thy Name;
Thy Fandom come,
Thy will be done on earth as it is in Tumblr;
Give us this day our daily feels;
And Forgive us our fanfiction,
As we forgive those who call you ugly.
And lead us always into temptation
And deliver us from haters. Amen.
You are my hero.
Or, if you’re Protestant you stick a gazeebo on the back of that with:
For thine is the gorgeous, the sexy and the cute.
‘round and ‘round the garden, like a teddy bear.
Am I a terrible person? Perhaps.
I finally found the tapestry simulator again—it’s been offline for a while, but someone recreated it here.
sorry sorry sorry
I KEEP REBLOGGING BECAUSE IT KEEPS GETTING BETTER
not his lufiend
^^^^^^ EVEN BETTER THAN THE ONE I SAW EARLIER
Sorry for the constant reblogging. I’m just enjoying this far too much.
Brilliant! Sherlock, like Shakespeare, seems to be for all time.
The most under-appreciated comical moment in Sherlock.
I’ve blogged a lot about BBC Sherlock, writing, literature, and fanfiction; however, I have found very few fanfiction stories to be enthralling. Most of them just do not match the series upon which they are based or have other factors which I dislike.
One exception which I recently found are the blogs textneversent and waitingat221b. These two blogs present parallel stories from the view points of Sherlock and John. There is one repeated line which really touches my heart. Sherlock often says when reflecting on John and love:
“Only you John. Only ever you and no one else.”
Platonic, romantic, sexual, kindred spirits…no matter what your opinion is of Sherlock and John, that is a wonderful way to express the importance of their relationship.
Sherlock fandom still going strong. In 1911.
If your surname is Holmes, you are duty-bound to do this. Sherrinfords, Sigers, Violets and Enolas are also acceptable.
These guys parents are AWESOME.
Amazing! I wonder if they sometimes sat together as a family & someone read ACD’s stories aloud.
