When I first saw this scene I was surprised that Mind Palace Moriarty listed Irene as one of the people who would cry over Sherlock’s death (I figured it would make more sense to include Molly in that slot). However, after mulling it over, I concluded that there’s a deeper meaning to it. When you consider who these people are to Sherlock or what they symbolically represent, this list has a pattern.
First, Jim mentions Mrs. Hudson. Mrs. Hudson has always been like a surrogate mother to Sherlock and, up until S3, she was the only mother figure in Sherlock’s life that we knew about. So you could say that Mrs. Hudson is symbolic of parental love and affection. Next on Jim’s list are Sherlock’s actual parents; they are the literal representation of parental love.
Then, the camera angle changes—this change further emphasizes how everyone is paired off (Mrs. Hudson/Sherlock’s parents, Irene/John)—and Jim lists Irene who, as many others have pointed out, is often the symbolic representation of romantic love and sex. So, if we continue the pattern of symbolic love followed by literal love, what does John represent?
do you ever get in those moods where you don’t feel like reading and you don’t feel like being on the internet and you don’t feel like watching a show and you don’t feel like sleeping and you don’t feel like existing in general
BUT YOU WANT TO DO SOMETHING.It’s in words
It’s like, I wanna wear beautiful dresses, but I also wanna wear sweats and huge t-shirts. But then I also wanna wear 50s clothing, and also fancy royal 1700s dresses. But then I just wanna wear jeans and a sweater with a messy bun, and maybe tights and pretty shirt, but then there’s flannel shirts. And then there’s the Hogwarts uniform, but there’s also a camp half blood t-shirt, and aLSO LEATHER JACKETS, YOU FEEL ME?
Usually when people do that “you’re special” crap I tend to roll my eyes.
But when Mister Rogers said it…
That’s because Mister Rogers meant it.
Mister Rogers genuinely cared about everyone and that’s why he will forever be the best. All of my feels.
True fact: He was considered to be one of the hardest people to interview, because he would turn it around and ask questions about the interviewer with genuine interest. Asking about their children and spouses, their dreams of the future, etc.
Just in case you needed any more proof of why feminism is still a fucking necessity.
Go watch her play the cover HERE and tell me she isn’t fucking talented as fuck… on another video of hers, where her cleavage isn’t in plain sight, comment after comment is “where are the boobs?!”
Reblogging to give her some proper publicity. She really is amazing at that guitar.
People wonder why I am a feminist. These guys are disgusting
