    I’ve never really thought about that, really - possibly so, yes!

    Let’s not forget Victor Trevor. It might be him…I hope it’s him! That would mean a lot!

    Mary is extreeeeeemely manipulative! I think it’s something she does to both John and Sherlock all the time, even when she’s just “taking the piss” or making a little joke. I know it’s a very English thing to make jokes of that sort, but Mary’s really get under the skin. What I mean by manipulation is that she does things like correct John’s perceptions of reality, as though he can’t see anything clearly and needs her to set him straight (as it were). For instance, when he starts to say that she’s the best thing that could have happened to him (since Sherlock’s death), he’s stumbling over it, not entirely sure if it’s what he really wants to say, and Mary asserts herself firmly, changing it slightly: “I agree; I’m the best thing that’s ever happened to you”, which is not quite what John was saying - and he reacts as though slightly incredulous by her assumptive statement. Or Mary laughing at John’s awkward-as-arse proposal - it’s a subtle way of suggesting that John is laughable, that his proposal isn’t something to take seriously, that John isn’t someone to take seriously. It’s a very small way of undercutting someone, making them feel small. 

    She does it again in TSOT with the serviette folding thing: “I’m not John; I can tell when you’re fibbing”. In one neat little sentence, she’s undercut them both: she’s suggested that John is stupid and/or gullible and that Sherlock isn’t as clever as he thinks, that she can see through the fib he was hoping to pull off - which he does in an effort to save his own dignity, but Mary relentlessly forces him to admit that he was so into wedding planning that he looked up how to fold fancy serviettes on youtube. It’s mean-spirited. She could have let him have his dignity.

    She does it again with Sholto, at the wedding. Let’s consider this honestly for a second: if Sholto was super important to John, would John have talked about him a lot? Does John ever talk about things that are really personal to him, really important? No. (“I find it hard, this sort of stuff.”) QED: either Sholto is not all that important to John, if he talks about him “all the time, won’t shut up about him”, or Sholto is somewhat important to John, meaning that John very likely does NOT talk about him all the time. We saw how John clammed up when Sherlock asked about him; therefore I’m more inclined to believe that John’s commanding officer during his three tours of duty in war-torn Afghanistan where John nearly lost his life, was indeed important to him. Either way, Mary is - if not lying directly - certainly exaggerating the truth to a large extent. Why? All to make Sherlock feel that he isn’t as important to John as he would like to believe he is. And Mary tops that off with the added implication that John confides in her more than he does in Sherlock - double-whammy. And then the cherry on the sundae is reminding him that there is one person present who is more important to John than either Sholto or Sherlock, and that’s her. “It’s my wedding day!” she pronounces gleefully, fully aware of Sherlock’s unhappiness and jealousy. Of course Mary wouldn’t love it if she suspects that her husband’s best friend is in love with her husband - that’s bound to be awkward/uncomfortable/undesirable in general. But they’re friends, and friends treat unwanted emotions with more tact and gentleness than this. Normally. This has more the feeling of Mean Girls politics. It’s not nice. It’s not kind or compassionate or understanding. It’s just mean. And it relies on half-truths to twist the knife. How is that in any way necessary?

    I mean, why is she so damned happy here? Compare her expression to Sherlock’s!

    Mary undercuts Sherlock and John’s friendship to John, too. At the beginning of HLV, John says that he hasn’t seen Sherlock “in ages” (and sounds bothered about it) and Mary corrects his perceptions again and states that it’s been a month. Kate Whitney asks who they’re talking about, and Mary pointedly says to John, “you see? That does happen!”, correcting John’s perceptions about how famous/well-known Sherlock is. And then she calls into question John’s ability to rescue Isaac Whitney from the drug den with a host of questions that are unnecessarily rude: “Why you?” (Why NOT Captain John H. Watson of the Fifth Northumberland Fusiliers? I think he can handle a drug den!), “Since when [are you neighbourly]?” (Is she calling John an anti-social jerk? Possibly true, but still!), “Why are you being so… what’s the matter with you?”, or ”What is that?” to his tyre lever (as if John wouldn’t know how to handle it - and as it happened, he didn’t need anything but his bare hands!). We can see that John is bothered by it when he shrugs off Mary’s (attempt to apologise?) comment that it’s “a tiny bit sexy” with a cool “I know” before he unsmilingly turns and walks away. He doesn’t want her to come along; she comes regardless. He tells her to just leave if there’s any trouble; she stays. Does she ever credit John for actually knowing what he’s doing? That’s what I mean about subtle manipulation. 

    But yeah, her treatment of Sherlock at the wedding was one of the main reasons I didn’t like or trust her even before the big shocker in HLV came about.

    I want Sherlock to end with John and Sherlock getting married and retiring to Sussex to keep bees, and then nothing horrible happens and they just happily and quietly live their lives together, sometimes going on cases, and sometimes not talking for days on end because the two don’t need words…

    • John: So, hmm, when did you two get together ?
    • Pilot!Joh: Right after our first case, we had dinner at a chinese restaurant and got back to Baker Street and shagged like mad
    • Sherlock: ....
    • John: ....
    • Pilot!Sherlock: It's not like John hadn't propositioned me at Angelo's 2 hours after we met
    • John: *stares into the distance*
    • Sherlock: Hmm John ? I think we need to talk.

    sherlock creates a shortcut on john’s phone so that whenever he types sherlock’s name it changes to “my arousingly brilliant and surprisingly flexible husband”

    john always forgets about it until he embarrasses himself while answering blog comments from his phone

    finally john gets revenge by creating a shortcut on sherlock’s phone that changes “case” to “cock”

On rainy days when there’s no case to solve John cuddles with Sherlock on the couch, keeping the bad mood from taking him over.

    If Stuntmen from the old movies don’t have your full respect then I just don’t know what to say to you

    l tried really hard not to reblog this

    Yeah, it is indeed really hard not to reblog a fucking thing.

    Can we all agree that the man in the first gif is the manliest man in the world?

    Are we just going to all silently acknowledge that the last guy is clearly dead and that we just saw him die. 

    HOLD UP FOR A SECOND

    ALL OF THESE GIFS ARE ONE MAN

    THE SINGULAR BUSTER KEATON

    WHILE FILMING THE GENERAL

    HE SNAPPED HIS NECK ON THE RAILROAD TIES AND WENT HOME AND ICED HIS BODY

    AND CAME BACK FOR WORK THE NEXT DAY

    HE ONCE GOT HIS HIP RIPPED OUT OF ITS SOCKET BY A MALFUNCTIONING ELEVATOR AND WAS DISAPPOINTED WITH HIMSELF FOR BEING INJURED

    HE ONCE HAD TO FALL 100 FEET DOWN A WATERFALL INTO A NET

    A STUNTMAN TESTED IT AND BROKE BOTH LEGS AND DISLOCATED HIS SHOULDER

    BUSTER DID THE STUNT ANYWAY AND LANDED WITHOUT A SCRATCH

    IN ‘THE HIGH DIVE’

    BUSTER DID A TRICK DIVE THROUGH A CARDBOARD DECK THAT WAS CAMOUFLAGED TO LOOK LIKE THE REAL DECK

    ONLY HE COULDN’T TELL FROM 100 FEET UP WHERE THE CARDBOARD STOPPED AND THE REAL DECK STARTED AND THERE WAS ONLY LIKE A THREE FOOT MARGIN FOR ERROR

    AND WHEN HE HESITATED A SUDDEN BREEZE LITERALLY KNOCKED HIM OFF THE DIVING BOARD AND HE HAD TO JUMP ANYWAY

    AND HE MISSED THE REAL DECK BY LESS THAN A FOOT BUT HE MADE IT

    IN THE SECOND GIF HE’S RECREATING SOMETHING THAT THE ACTUAL GENERAL PURSUERS HAD TO DO IN THE CIVIL WAR

    IF HE MISSES THAT TIE

    THE TRAIN WILL BE DERAILED AND HE WILL DIE IN THE EXPLOSION

    IN THE THIRD GIF AN ENTIRE HOUSE IS FALLING HE HAS ONE TAKE AND IF HE HAS NOT DONE THE CALCULATIONS CORRECTLY HE WILL BE CRUSHED

    HE HAS AN INCH-WIDE MARGIN ON EACH SIDE

    AND THE HOUSE LITERALLY BRUSHES HIS LEFT SHOULDER ON THE WAY DOWN

    YOU CAN SEE HIS LEFT ARM JUMP BECAUSE HE’S FLINCHING FROM THE PAIN

    THAT LAST GIF

    HE WAS SUPPOSED TO MAKE THAT JUMP

    HE WAS NOT SUPPOSED TO FALL AND THEY HADNT PLANNED FOR IT

    BUT HE SURVIVED

    BUSTER KEATON SURVIVED 100% OF THINGS THAT WOULD HAVE KILLED LESSER MEN INCLUDING WWI, TORNADOS, HOUSEFIRES, ALCOHOLISM, BROKEN NETS, CRUSHING DEPRESSION, THE DEPRESSION ITSELF, THE MCCARTHY WITCHHUNTS, THE END OF SILENT CINEMA, AND ABOUT 900 MORE OF THE STUNTS YOU SEE ABOVE

    BUSTER LIVED TO BE 70 YEARS OLD

    FATHERED LIKE FOUR KIDS AND EIGHT GRANDKIDS

    HE CAME OUT THE OTHER SIDE OF ALL THAT

    THINKING THAT LIFE WAS GOOD AND PEOPLE WERE WONDERFUL

    BUSTER KEATON IS NOT JUST A STUNTMAN

    HE IS A GODDAMN SAINT

    BUSTER KEATON’S PARENTS WERE PART OF A TRAVELING SHOW.

    THEY WERE ACROBATS.

    THEY TOOK BABY BUSTER UP HIGH IN THE AIR WITH THEM.

    THEY DROPPED HIM.

    LUCKILY SOMEONE WHO WAS STANDING UNDER THEM CAUGHT BABY BUSTER.

    THAT MAN WAS HARRY HOUDINI. 

    HARRY HOUDINI SAVED BUSTER KEATON’S LIFE.

    if you don’t think that’s the coolest shit you can get right out.

    I AM SO HAPPY TO SEE BUSTER KEATON LOVE ON MY DASH YOU GUYS HAVE NO IDEA
    WHERE IS THE BUSTER KEATON FANDOM SHOW ME THE WAY
