my choice would be something indian/afghan, like ‘sowar’ (‘horseman’) or ‘risaldar’ (‘horse-officer’) because i think acd watson would be struck by bbc sherlock’s half-wild appearance, very suggestive of the pashtun tribesmen he saw on his foreign service.
Drawing a complete blank as to what sort of pet name ACD Watson would use for BBC Sherlock. Any ideas?
For reference, Watson calls Holmes My Love My Dear, and Wee Lad. Holmes calls Watson Dearest, Dear Doctor, and My Watson (Canon…)

You don’t really think a couple of lines of computer code are gonna crash the world around our ears?
I’m disappointed. I’m disappointed in you.
i’m not saying two men in their thirties/early forties couldn’t tie themselves in miserable, mutually destructive knots over their unspoken love/lust/what the fuck ever; i’m saying that my reaction would be ‘grow the fuck up’, not ‘omg let me watch a show and write a novel…
yeahsee i’ve already passed that point. even if S4 has them fling mary off a bridge/train/whatever and run off into the sunset together, i’m still left with ‘you’re both blind, immature, destructive fuckwits, and i bet anything you’ll break up again in a month because you’re incapable of being honest with each other. if it’s not about omg dicks it’ll be about omg the electricity bill or something. this shit is not the stuff of which epic love stories is made’.
tl;dr: eleven/river song gave me the creeps, too.

To be a fangirl in a relationship is to, by unfortunate default, settle. You will never love anyone as much as you love your OTP. No one will ever love you as much as you love your OTP. And you and your partner will never, sadly, love each other as much as the people in your OTP love each other.
i love everyone in this
It’s actually kind of funny that the return of Moriarty is enough to give Sherlock absolution and bring him back from his death-sentence exile. It was Sherlock and Mycroft who were meant to have dealt with Moriarty the last time, and apparently they absolutely failed to do so….
