I want you to be the happy to my ending.
Steven Moffat (Sherlock co-creator), introduction in the first of the BBC’s Sherlock book series, A Study In Scarlet, works by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
“I’m not as good as you are with all this inspirational stuff and everything but… do you know why John Watson really stays with Sherlock Holmes?”
Frank finally looked up, confused by the change of subject. “Uhm… Other than the fact that they’re obviously gay?” He shook his head curiously. “I have no idea. Why?”
“Because Sherlock’s a natural genius – right? And a person like that comes with a lot of drama; they’re so out there that they can’t help but stir things up, no matter what they do. That’s just how it is. So what they need is a right hand to keep them from escalating completely, like John Watson, for example.” Gerard shrugged. “That’s kinda why I’m here, you know? I’ll be your right hand if only you could calm down a little, so I can keep up with you. Meet me halfway or something.”
Sherlock reference and Frerard? Does it get any better?!
Consulting five-year-old. Always.
I love this too much.
“You, being all mysterious with your cheekbones, and turning your coat collar up so you look cool.”
This is probably why I have a massive crush on Sherlock Holmes.
