Summary: A story in which John and Sherlock struggle to become what they’ve always been, Mycroft interferes, and an unforeseen obstacle climbs out of the rubble to threaten everything that they’ve all worked for.
My Thoughts: This fic definitely threw me for a loop. I had no idea it was going to be as dark as it is. That being said, I liked this fic a lot for a dark fic. There are a few things that I don’t think would happen normally, but it doesn’t really bother me because this is a dark fic; that tends to happen. Anyway, I loved the diction and the story line and some of the dialogue was so good I squealed into my pillow (because I stayed up until 2:30am to finish this. Yep). I definitely recommend reading this post-Reichenbach fic! ~M
God… the fact that he actually looks scared is just precious… Like he’s seen a demon teddy…
OK, so in ACD canon, Doyle fucked up and accidentally changed Mrs. Hudson’s name to Mrs. Turner. In BBC Sherlock, Mrs. Turner next door is a nod to this inconsistency in the Doyle canon. Basically, in the stories, Mrs. Hudson and Mrs. Turner are the same person.
The joke is taken further on John’s blog, where Mrs. Hudson frequently comments while logged in as Mrs. Turner, and specifies that it’s Mrs. Hudson:
Essentially, in the realm of John’s blog, Mrs. Hudson and Mrs. Turner are practically the same person.
Which brings me to my point:
In ASiP, when Mrs. Hudson is talking to Sherlock and John and says, “Mrs. Turner next door’s got married ones,” what she’s actually saying is, “You two little shits gonna get married.”
i want this stamp

Best stamp ever.
For all you out there wondering, there’s a lot of Sherlock Holmes stamps. Here’s a nice article on a good number of them.
That specific stamp is actually the culmination of a set of 5 that, together, actually make a mystery to solve:"Hidden within the design of each stamp is a single letter; the five letters (D, E, L, O, and Y) can be anagrammed to form a relevant word other than "yodel." The question is whether you can locate the five letters. You will need good eyes, perhaps a magnifying glass, and a supersized image (available here - click twice). Those who are curious, but too impatient to do the searching, can avoid the fun and skip to the solution.”
Oh sweet jesus
My heart was not made to cope with this
Holy shit. This is why the internet was invented.

Sex does NOT alarm me - I assure you - but I DO NOT recall acquiescing to this photo shoot! Did you drug me?!
This is only half of the drawing as it’s actually in landscape format, but I couldn’t get my original idea to work. So you’re only getting half of it until I can figure out what to do with the entire thing.
"Horsemanning, or fake beheading, was a popular way to pose in a photograph in the 1920’s. Sometimes spelled horsemaning, the horsemanning photo fad derives its name from the Headless Horseman, a character from “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.”
