hey knitting nerds (and cross-stitch nerds)
 I made it this wide because I want to knit a wide scarf with sock yarn or maybe a little lighter, but you can divide this pattern exactly in half and still have a nice looking pattern for a scarf in DK
john and sherlock would be totally romantic with each other but not in the squishy cuddly way more like in the "i will die for you and i will kill for you and I will ravish you when you are a sweaty, adrenaline-high mess with blood all over your face" way
and the “i will bitch about everything you do while also obviously loving everything you do even when you are legitimately annoying the fuck out of me” kind of way
We started [filming] in April and we finished in June, for the first two episodes [of Season 3]. And then there was a hiatus when [Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch] went off to do other things, so we had to wait a long time for the third episode [to film].
And I had no idea what [Mary’s] story was going to be, in the third episode. Mark had said. ‘She’s not what she seems’, but they weren’t telling me what she was. I didn’t realize that she was going to shoot Sherlock. I had no idea! I was like, ‘Oh, god!’
Martin [Freeman] and I got the third episode [script], and we read it in the sitting room together. When we got to that page, I was like, ‘They’re gonna kill me! They’re gonna hate me! Everybody is gonna hate me! I kill the hero in 40 minutes.’
And then, once we got to the end of it, we were like, ‘Oh, no she’s fine. She didn’t mean it. She just did it because she was really scared. It’s fine.’ It was good because people were like, ‘Oh, poor Mary!’ They had forgotten that she just shot Sherlock.
So it was quite nice that I didn’t know what was going to happen. It was nice to be in the dark and just play her as somebody with a secret. We didn’t know what it was, but she was still very strong-wilIled and a happy character. I think Mary is quite cool. [x]
Raise your hand if you’re straddling the line between crippling anxiety and not giving any fucks about anything
I think about a week ago some people asked for pics of the nerdy 221b I made on sims 3 so here:
the awning on speedys is really low and i can’t fix it :’(
there’s a lot of little details that are different, but overall i think it’s not too bad. especially since I only used patterns and items from the expansion packs. I’m kinda proud of this.
i have no life.

One billion kisses from your friend who always get jealous of everybody who had the privilege of hugging you today,
Once again… I can not with this scene.
One of the more deliberate moments where the watcher witnesses the depth of Sherlock’s pining. Sherlock is referring to John’d romanticism in relation to his blog.. which, let’s be clear, is a blog revolving around Sherlock. John isn’t romanticizing crime, or murder, or the generality of cases… he’s romanticizing Sherlock, his mind, his acuity, their time together, who Sherlock is specifically as a man and John responds to Sherlock’s identity by writing about it with great depth and affection.
Up until now Sherlock has been the primary recipient of John’s romantic attentions. Not outright physical romance, but something with perhaps even far greater intimacy. John accounting Sherlock with beautiful sincerity, and genuine respect, his words making Sherlock into something desirable. (Which in turn, Sherlock returns that same level of romanticism in his best man’s speech.)
Sherlock was probably content just having that from John. Having love expressed through the safe medium of John’s blog. Sherlock’s small hesitation and and averting his eyes so he’s not looking right at John, pursing his lips. His tone and expression is a cocktail mix of regret, guilt over having these feelings in the middle of this event, and internalized longing.
Sherlock realizing his miscalculation at the end of every series.
Important to remember this, many look back and think Sherlock always won. Maybe it’s the halcyon days effect of S1, but this is a YOUNG Sherlock Holmes that is growing into the iconic detective, and he has failed, miserably, and to great cost.
