the ships that i end up investing myself the most in are the ones where at first im like, “meh i guess i can see that” and then somewhere along the line my brain just fucking snaps and i cant control myself its like a demons possessed me and im going 900mph to hell
I think if it wasn’t intentional, then it’s a happy coincidence. Because they do love the countdown thing.
Like this, which we see just as Mummy Holmes says:
"Someone’s put a bullet in my boy, and if I ever find out who, I shall turn absolutely monstrous. Oh, this is for Mary…"
And then of course, there’s the great TEH countdown. Well…count-up. Number progression.
1. There’s John’s train ride to 221B, set to porn music.
2. John and Sherlock were reunited (and we met Mary) at The Landmark – an interesting name, and an even more interesting address…222 Marylebone Road.
3. And then Sherlock gets the thumbs up to
dicktrains from Train Guy as he poses next to train #223.
4. "Sometimes a deception is so audacious, so outrageous that you can’t see it even when it’s staring you in the face. Look – SEVEN carriages leave Westminster…but only SIX carriages arrive at St. James’s Park.”
221, 222, 223. Plus 7, or plus 6? Depends on the missing carriage, the empty hearse. The thing that left Westminster (Mycroft’s employ) and vanished on the way to St. James (Jim’s employ). Mary. Whether or not it all adds up to 230, or falls short at 229, whether or not Sherlock and John can face their feelings together – it hinges on her.
This is actually illustrated in the show. Remember the bi-bomb?
So, yeah. All kinds of hints that we’re looking at a countdown to something big. “A story for which the world is not yet prepared.”
Bus seats in Finland - for the unsocial people, like me.
Rule number one in Finnish public transport culture: Don’t sit next to anyone. Unless the seats are like this.
In every other cases fill the spots from window seats. Then standing up seats. If the bus gets crowded sit next to someone but sit as far as possible from the other person and turn your head to look to the completely different direction. Don’t say a word.
And if you’re the one sitting next to window pray all the gods that the other person leaves before you, because otherwise you’d have to speak to him/her. Usually it’s something like “Umm..ileavenow”. Remember, no sorries or smiles. Just say it as low and fast as possible without making any eye contact.
legit advise for people visiting finland. that “ileavenow” is “mä jään täs” in finnish. it’s okay if you don’t pronounce it perfectly right because the only reason someone would talk to strangers in public transport is to ask them to move, so they will get the hint.
BUT! usually just things like putting your phone away and rustling your bag and looking like you are about to leave will do the trick. no need for words.
….and this is how you wait for a bus in finland:
Reblogging because of that picture. So true. And familiar.
This is the most bizarre thing I’ve ever seen…what the actual fuck. It almost seems like a joke but I feel like it’s actually serious????
100% dead serious
also in all my years here I’ve never had to speak to a stranger in a bus to tell them that I have to leave. I’m lucky as heck.
seriously just start rustling your bag and put your phone away and the other person will stand up at the speed of light and let you leave because they don’t want to talk to you either and all this is very awkward and its best done quickly.
this is really true and i love it. It feels so comfortable to be able to trust that you can have your own space and that everybody else thinks just like that too^^

“I love him. It’s been four years and I’ve kind of seen Jack grow up — he’s very smart and he’s very funny and he’s very charming. And he’s great company! You form friendships and that’s been a really special one to me and I literally look into his eyes and I get very upset because I go, ‘No!’ But he’s going and I get it.”
