“I rose to my feet, stared at him for some seconds in utter amazement, and then it appears that I must have fainted for the first and the last time in my life.” - The Adventure of the Empty House

I crept forward and looked across at the familiar window. As my eyes fell upon it, I gave a gasp and a cry of amazement. The blind was down, and a strong light was burning in the room. The shadow of a man who was seated in a chair within was thrown in hard, black outline upon the luminous screen of the window. There was no mistaking the poise of the head, the squareness of the shoulders, the sharpness of the features. The face was turned half-round, and the effect was that of one of those black silhouettes which our grandparents loved to frame. It was a perfect reproduction of Holmes. So amazed was I that I threw out my hand to make sure that the man himself was standing beside me. He was quivering with silent laughter.

John: I would have thought I was as trustworthy as your brother.
Sherlock: Of course you are, John!
John: You could’ve told me.
Sherlock: No, I couldn’t have.
John: Why? Because I’m not as clever as you are?
Sherlock: No. Because you had too much to lose.
John: *bitter laugh* You mean Sarah?
Sherlock: You have a life, John. You have a career, you have your habits, you have relationships. But me, I had nothing but Moriarty. I couldn’t drag you down with me.
John: But I would have gone with you anyway.
“John… are you genuinely chastising me… for doing the one unselfish thing I’ve done in my life? The one time I truly tried to protect the one person who matters the most to me… and you think that’s wrong? Or is it because it’s so unexpected from a man like me? Is it so wrong to try to be, just this once, a good man?”
“You don’t realize it do you, Sherlock? I never needed you to be that good man. I never needed you to be unselfish. You wouldn’t… you wouldn’t have needed to prove it if… if I hadn’t failed you. If I had been there… with you… to save you… you wouldn’t have needed to be a good man. That should’ve been me. I should’ve been that good man. I should’ve been the one you depended on, the one you’d count on to be with you every step of the way. And in that final step, over the falls… I failed you. I failed you, Sherlock.”
“I never needed you to save me, John. I just needed you alive.”
“DAMN IT, SHERLOCK, I NEEDED YOU ALIVE TOO, AND YOU MADE ME BELIEVE YOU WERE DEAD!”
Super indulgent reblog of my own art but seriously, the writing in the comments is killing me. You guys :___: here, have a bucket of my creyes.
