"If Mary actually meant to kill Sher-"image"Mary only shot him to slow him down, not to kill Sher-"image"Mary never wanted to kill Sher-"imageTranscript, Episode (34:12 - 34:15)
But okay, maybe she didn’t want to kill Sherlock. I mean, it’s not like his heart stopped beating causing him to flatline…

OMG. OMG.

I realize that some may think I am trying to extend the current Mary Wars, but I’m not. I’ve been reading and thinking about what is going around the Mary Conflict. Not the problem with domestic violence that seems to have triggered this latest outburst. I can…

No, no, no. I don’t feel maligned at all. I can almost understand where you are coming from. I know I am a John and therefore I love Sherlock. I am viscerally  impacted when Sherlock is hurt. I can’t understand why Sherlock is trying to tell me/John that Mary did what she did to “save” him. I am a medical person and know that is a flat out lie. So I react with the same disbelief that John displays and it makes “us” angry. It’s just like in real life. Each person sees the world differently. No matter how much we wish we could we can’t “know” what another person feels unless they tell us and some things are really difficult to put into words. Thank you for your feedback.

YES!  This puts it so well.  I can’t see Sherlock hurting, it kills me.  Therefore I can’t forgive Mary for hurting him.  I don’t even care if she meant to kill him or not.  She hurt him, badly.  Physically and emotionally.  I can see logically different people’s POV on this and why some people can excuse what she did.  I however, emotionally, can’t.  The main problem I’m having is that as a John, I don’t understand why he took her back.  Maybe I’m not as much of a John as I think?  I don’t see anyway I could have forgiven her and taken her back no matter what Sherlock told me.  So I have to believe it is a plot of some sort and that he hasn’t truly forgiven her.  

I’m with you on the long game. I don’t know what it is, but I believe this time John is in it with Sherlock and Mycroft. Just to make it clear, I have no proof. I’m not the sort that “sees” things unless they are fairly plainly shoved under my nose so I can point to nothing that makes me think it except an inability to see any other reason John would forgive her. Hedging now, unless the baby is the reason. Maybe that is the reason it was “conceived” by the writers in the first place. Now I just worry about how they will bring it all to an acceptable conclusion.

All this is so interesting!

(FWIW, I identify with Sherlock, dunno why. Maybe I just want to be pretty and tragic. :-))

But I was thinking about the unconditional Mary love that part of the fandom shows. I get the impression that many Mary-lovers are also Sherlolly shippers. And that sort of makes sense. If I identified with Molly, I might promote John/Mary no matter what. John/Mary is a solid base for Sherlock/Molly.

When I Was Your Consulting Detective

Why won’t Tumblr love me?

Well, OK… maybe it’s my uberstrong opinions.  Or my persnickety personality.  Or maybe it’s because I’m old enough, to be your mother - or even your grandmother, assuming I got knocked up very young. 

To hell with me, though.  This video was so, so much work - and I’m willing to beg to get it some love.  Love it, damn you - LOVE IT.

Ooh, this is absolutely amazing!

I drew Benedict Cumberbatch on black paper. Best time spent drawing him. 

Wow, gorgeous!

This is amazingly accurate. 
And also: it’s even better if the cat has eaten it and thrown it up and then leaves it for the dogs.
