"The violin is a pain in the arse. It makes my heart beat as well, cos you know, everyone who plays the violin, does to the standard I’m supposed to. Sherlock has learnt from the age of four and has bled over that instrument and I faking it, it feels horrible……playing a classical instrument is just such a heinous thing for me, it really really upsets me because the fingering is out, the bow is out, the position is not right, the timing’s not right and that’s what I have to do, I have to just mime it obviously. But there’s also just a bit of sound I make, you can’t hear it but I can hear it and it tortures me. There are those beautiful happy moments where I’m supposed to be serenading my best friend and his wife and it’s like, “Way to ruin that one Ben.” But the music they write for it, is gorgeous and it works and when you get it right, it really works."

Sherlock + his face while looking at John and Major Sholto

This is Sherlock thinking that it was never about men. It was about John not wanting him.

I am NOT crying.

Well, fuck.

how about instead you kick me in the kneecap

"Relapsed Sherlock" trope bugs the every loving fuck out of me

goldenheartedrose:

snogandagrope:

Feel free to ignore me. I just, vomited most of this out in a comment last night, after I saw someone saying: “I loves me some relapsed Sherlock ;* )!”

In canon, Sherlock uses cocaine and morphine, both legal, buy from a pharmacist (it shifted to prescription only in 1926), as tools to sharpen or quiet his brain. “I suppose that its influence is physically a bad one. I find it, however, so transcendently stimulating and clarifying to the mind that its secondary action is a matter of small moment.” Sign of the Four

When he says in The Sign of Four: “For me, there still remains the cocaine-bottle.” that should tell the reader that he has the Work and will focus on the work. He doesn’t need recognition or a bride.

Modern readers, however, (and possibly even ACD himself, considering how Watson whines about it) bring decades of Just say no bullshit and propaganda to that quote, (and possibly Shezza) completely missing the fact that if he really wanted/meant to get lost, be a miserable pathetic mess, he would have gone for the morphine.

Not that morphine/heroin use makes you a miserable pathetic mess. Look at Keith Richards, he’s got that shit under control. Same as Holmes did, and same as Sherlock did as Shezza.

If you have any perspective giving experience with opiates, you would know the scene in His Last Vow, with Shezza curled up pouting in his chair and then quickly shoving Mycroft into a door jam, was not the body response of a super high out of control junkie, that was the body response of a man doing just enough of a drug he’s already familiar with to convince CAM he has blackmail material. 

I suppose it’s understandable, given Molly’s reaction, (standing in there for Watson’s carping in Sign of the Four, etc.) that watchers fell for it too. But really, it’s our anti-drug culture that made Sherlock a junkie. He isn’t, never has been.

The opening scene of His Last Vow, that is straight out of The Man With the Twisted Lip. Watson finds Holmes in an opium den for a case (HLV never says what drug it is, but really, smack den not crack house). ACD had Watson go off on the evils of opium/the dens, because it was a cultural issue at the time. Cultural. Read that racial. Same as the motivations behind criminalizing most drugs.

Perspective, if anyone is still reading, not everyone who drinks booze is an alcoholic. Same with drugs (prescription, over the counter, and illegal). Despite what the media feeds you, the fact is, using doesn’t make you an addict. Your brain/(lack of) self control does.

Supposing that Sherlock is a former drug user. Possibly even a former addict (because it is possible for your body to become addicted to a drug but you don’t necessarily become a junkie over it). That’s actually my biggest sticking point. Because IF you have ever been physically addicted, IF you have ever gone through withdrawal, you know how absolute shit that is and will do anything not to go through that again.

For example: Physically addicted to a [recreationally used/probably illegal] opiate derivative in uni, break your leg or have a bulging lumbar disk or something and have to be on a[perfectly legal prescribed by your doctor] opiate derivative for pain management. You are going to skip doses, skip entire days even, to save yourself having to go through withdrawal again.

This is where “relapsed Sherlock” bugs the ever loving fuck out of me. IF you accept that this man is brilliant, IF you accept that this man values his mind over pretty much anything, AND you can wrap your head around the spectrum of addiction, non-addicts, use, and sobriety, you would understand that for Sherlock, there is nothing to relapse to

Obviously, I am very sensitive to how Sherlock’s drug use is portrayed on screen (and Watson’s reaction to it in the stories, to be honest). It’s fine to find unwashed ginger scruffy Shezza hot, but purposefully breaking a major strength of your character because you don’t understand history and how addiction works? That shit I don’t understand.

Don’t mind me, I’m just screaming into the wind.

Snog, this is perfection. I love you and what you’ve written here, and it’s something that’s bothered the everloving hell out of me ever since I heard the whisper in the wind that there was probably going to be a “Sherlock on drugs” scene in series 3. I kept thinking “Oh man, they are going to fuck this up so badly because Sherlock Holmes is not a fucking addict”. And they didn’t, at least not too badly, but the interpretations of that scene and some of the fic that followed that, well, it bothers me a lot, but I really thought I was alone in being bothered. Clearly I’m not and ahhhh just very very thankful that you’ve written this.

i’m sorry but this is true because we make everything such a big deal why do we make everything such a big deal why can’t we let each other have our own opinions and thoughts and not make people feel guilty for being “wrong” what happened to the big cuddly supportive family (((o(*゚▽゚*)o)))

Mary happened

Yep, I don’t remember this hate before Mary coming, and now suddenly it’s full of people saying that it’s wrong to not love her or that it’s wrong to ship Johnlock ‘cause now John is married and they even get all angry and upset when you answer to them “I really don’t care about your opinion.”

It seems to me that most of this ugliness stems from shippers’ fears that Mary interferes with Johnlock, but she really doesn’t. The Johnlock obviously is still all there. Mary is just another antagonist, like Moriarty is an antagonist, and as such, she’s a great one. I can’t help but feel that shippers’ hatred of Mary stems from the fact that she’s female. Since 99.9 percent of shippers are female, this sexual bias is self-loathing, plain and simple and that’s really sad. Either that or it’s hatred of bisexuals, because that’s what John obviously is.

children, there was hate long before mary

Sherlock finally agrees to eat dinner with Irene in a fancy restaurant. He invites Janine to the same restaurant at the same time. When Irene shows up a little late she sees a strange woman sitting at her table and then suddenly she gets a text “You will thank me later. SH.”

Sherlock’s Military Kink is Canon!

In A Study in Pink when Sherlock introduces John to 221B he has a copy of Eagle: Adventure Survival Truth Magazine in the boxes with his trunk. 

EDIT -> Professorfonz figured out the magazine was Eagle and found an earlier issue of it. (I tracked down Sherlock’s issue.) On behalf of her amazingness, you’re welcome!

SQUEE!

EDIT -> Tween!SherlockThis magazine appears to have run in the 1980’s only so they’re probably from Sherlock’s youth which makes sense given that they’re with what I’m claiming is the boarding school trunk. 

Trunk Photo from Arwel Wyn Jones’s 221b set panorama.

EDIT -> Sherlock’s is the June, 1983 issue of Eagle Adventure Survival Truth Magazine. Headlines include: “Street Fighting Techniques,” “L.A.W. Update,” “82nd Airborn,” etc. I’m looking for a better photo of the issue.
