    i mean usually men who are in a platonic friendship with another man are really happy for their friend when they get married and don’t longingly stare at their chairs or obsessively fold napkins or y’know, leave the wedding early and start doing drugs

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    That’s my birth certificate.

    Yep.

    One of the things I love about the dynamic between these two is that while Sherlock totally breaches John’s privacy, repeatedly, he does it basically right out in the open. If he’d wanted to find John’s birth certificate so as to ascertain his middle name, he could have easily, easily concealed it from John. He’s not only not trying to hide it; he’s standing just inside the doorway, waiting for John to come home and see him with it. Just as he’ll openly say that he reads John’s emails to his girlfriends, knows what sort of naked women can be found on his computer, etc - it’s all totally done in the open, and John gets exasperated, but he never really objects. It’s a completely different category than the ways in which Mary has gone behind John’s back. With these two, it’s a game - a game that John will never win, maybe, but it’s because a part of their dynamic from the beginning. We’ve seen John in a serious temper and his long-suffering looks of martyrdom are not it. I would actively argue that he even likes it, on some level. Likes having someone so interested in him, maybe. And Sherlock doesn’t hide it from him - his interest is right there in the open. This isn’t an abusive friendship; this is their twisted version of flirting. :P

He is playing with your mind too. Can’t you see what’s going on? - Sherlock

i don’t know if Sherlock was more scared or surprised that John wasn’t fooled by Moriarty.  that he always believed in him.  i wonder if this was the moment that Sherlock realized how much he was going to have to hurt John because John was going to continue to believe in him.

You know, I have wondered that too.

    so we’ve all conjectured that sherlock’s commentary on the crap telly (“course he’s not the boy’s father, look at the turn-ups on his jeans”) is foreshadowing that the baby isn’t john’s, and in particular i’ve seen people pointing out mary wears her jeans cuffed, but if it IS intended as foreshadowing then i think it’s a little more figurative than that.

    what a weird, arbitrary piece of evidence, right? sherlock’s level of deductive skill is absolutely the stuff of fantasy, but they DO generally try to provide us with coherent, logical explanations for his train of thought. this particular piece of evidence is utterly opaque, decontextualized, and ludicrous, however. how could the way a man cuffs his jeans possibly ever tell us anything about a child’s paternity? i think that’s supposed to draw our attention a little more closely to this line, and when you look a little closer you realize that the obvious reinterpretation that brings the evidence (“the turn-ups on his jeans”) into the paternity context is swapping in “genes” for “jeans” (which is pretty hard to argue is a coincidence, given the apparent randomness of the sartorial evidence sherlock is ostensibly citing and the fact that we’ve basically been told coincidences don’t really exist in this narrative).

    but what about “turn-ups”? obviously we aren’t talking about cuffs on dna. well, as it happens, john himself provides us with the key to that mystery just a few minutes later:

    course john’s not the father. look at the totally unexpected content of the baby’s genes.

    Oh. My heart. Sherlock helped him get to the point where he could stand up and say that he is someone. He is a very competent someone. And just….We all know that John made Sherlock a better , happier person. It’s so lovely to be reminded that Sherlock made John a better, happier person too.

    isn’t it weird that John probably planned Sherlock’s funeral and Sherlock planned John’s wedding, and in that order

    Imagine if both turned out to be fake. Wait..

SHERLOCK HOLMES 3 NEWS!!
“We like BIG movies,” Downey says of Team Downey, which he runs with producer wife Susan (Levin) Downey. “We are working on a Sherlock Holmes 3,” he says, without providing details. 
(From RDJ’s interview published in the Toronto Sun, August 27, 2014) 
Lots of other good news in the interview, too, but that was what we focused on!

    OKAY, CAN WE TALK ABOUT THIS FOR A SECOND?

    Moriarty is in Sherlock’s Mind Palace. CHAINED UP, IN SHERLOCK’S BLOODY MIND PALACE.

    Not only did Sherlock fully accept the whole “I am you” “You’re me” conversation that they had, he recognizes it IN HIMSELF that there is a part of him that truly is Moriarty.

    AND HE CHAINED IT UP.
