"Falling is just like flying, except there’s a more permanent destination."

"Sherlock Holmes is a great man, and I think one day—if we’re very very lucky—he might even be a good one."

"Would you like to-"
"-have dinner?"

Re: 100 question BBC Sherlock quiz - ANSWERS THREAD

veecee, but you can still do this, you don't have to read my answers.

Mary, I think that statement was meant in general and not related to a certain person. We can assume that he's been dating other women but we only really know about four. But I think that's a matter of opinion.


"Yes, of course I forgive you."

Re: 100 question BBC Sherlock quiz - ANSWERS THREAD

Geez, I could answer all but two questions on the spot. Maybe there is such a thing as overthinking in this fandom? And I only ever watched the whole series about four times!!
