#oh reblogging this again because i wanted to talk about the apple #the biting of the apple and the fall of man #moriarty is eve clearly #no but really this is something i want to think about a lot more and write pages and pages on #because i did a reading of eve in paradise lost asserting that she brought relational identity and the possibility of deconstruction to t… #the text/the world #and i think that could fit in so interestingly with moriarty and his status as the storyteller #and the ongoing theme of the fairy tale #i really think that throughout moriarty wants sherlock to subvert the simple antagnoistic hero/villain structure he’s setting up #which is why the ‘i’m not one of them’ line affects moriarty so profoundly
#oh god i’ve been trying to figure out the apple in the context of fairytales but didn’t think about it in a religious context #yes #because there are religious references all over this episode #with the whole ‘you’re on the side of the angels’ thing while playing sinnerman for moriarty #and the idea of the fall - as a fall from grace or a descent to hell #but then sherlock subverting the angel/devil heaven/hell dichotomy by saying #’you want me to shake hands with you in hell i shall not disappoint you’ #and asserting that while he’s on the side of the angels he is not one himself #so good yes i’ll think about the apple some more
#YES #also that final moment between sherlock and moriarty does have a religious tone going for it #what with this like heavenly light suddenly shining down on them #and moriarty doesn’t just thank sherlock he also says ‘bless you’ #i think he finds a different kind of divinity in that moment #a divinity that arises not from within either of them but in that endlessly complex space between #i like to think that when sherlock says ‘i am you’ he too ‘bites the apple’ in a sense
OH I love that interpretation of Sherlock biting the apple on the roof. God, if you read it that way…. with Moriarty as Eve and Sherlock as Adam, then the fall that Moriarty talks about can be seen as the fall from grace after they’ve both bitten the apple. So Moriarty saying “I owe you a fall” is him offering the apple to Sherlock. Offering him knowledge, a higher understanding, a higher state of being. Because Sherlock is so limited where he is on the right side of the law. Ugh I know this is a way too literary criticism-y way to analyze it, but the idea is just really beautiful.
They say you used to be so kind.
Yo también ;-; me muero por verlo yaaaaa ❤️❤️❤️ y a colin también ughhshhs nuestros bebés ya crecieron
SIIII ME SIENTO UNA MAMÁ ORGULLOSA U.U *LOS ESTRUJA* ME IMAGINO A COLIN VIENDO A BRADLEY EN SU CASA Y VICEVERSA, Y LUEGO UN ‘YOU DID IT GREAT, HUN’
COLIN MARCÁNDOLE A BRADLEY POR TELÉFONO “that’s a pretty fucking great accent you got there” y Bradley contesta “want me to use it in bed”
I DO NOT SPEAK SPANISH AND I’M TRYING TO READ THIS, AND I THINK I UNDERSTAND BUT I’M NOT SURE. NO THE MIDDLE PART BUT THE REST….IDK.
WE’RE JUST TALKING ABOUT COLIN WATCHING HOMELAND AND THEN SAYING TO BRADLEY: THAT’S A PRETTY FUCKING GREAT ACCENT YOU GOT THERE. AND BRADLEY SMILING LIKE AND IDIOTA AND SAYING: WANT ME TO USE IT IN BED.
THAT’S WHAT I GOT FROM IT. I SPEAK NO SPANISH, BUT I GOT SOME OF IT.
Brolin = the language that unites the world
misscinnamonbun: “Hello well now ive made my mind, could you do an old couple johnlock?”
Oh yes please and thank you so much for the idea, I had a great time drawing them as an old couple. Forgive me again it took a long time, hope you like it as much as I do!
can we please talk about this
# 1998 is a hard year for jackie # even working two jobs money is tight # (especially with rose’s gymnastic lessons # but rose loves them and jackie will sell her own kidneys to ensure she can keep attending) # and christmas is just around the corner # she looks over her books and feels ill: # she simply can’t afford to get rose any proper gift this year # and it breaks her heart # because rose is so excited # she loves christmas # keeps saying how she hopes it’ll snow this year # proper like # and christmas eve jackie is up late # worrying and hating how disappointed rose is gonna be come morning # when she wakes up to see the floor is almost empty beneath the tree # and that’s when there’s a knock at the door # she opens it # (with a baseball bat at the ready - it’s late on the estate after all) # and there’s no one there # just a red child-sized bike # with a note attached # 'she's gonna be fantastic' it reads in messy loopy handwriting # 'merry christmas' # and normally she’d be worried about weirdos and stalkers but tonight # tonight it’s christmas eve and jackie tyler knows when not to look a gift horse in the mouth # so she hauls it inside quiet as she can # and the next morning when she’s awoken by the sound of rose crashing her new bike # into the hallway mirror # shrieking in delight the entire time # she takes a moment to say a silent thank you (via)
and now I’m crying
So, in true Sherlock fashion, I’m going to do an experiment.
