Took me longer than it should have to figure out that was a shower and not a Dalek
Plot twist: The next companion is a normal girl/boy who only dies once in their lifetime and has no remarkable back story but he thinks they’re wonderful because they are human and the Doctor needs reminding that you don’t need to be a mystery to be remarkable.
so basically we want Donna back
In their duo, Sherlock is the brain, John is the heart, yes?
Sherlock’s problems are in his heart (sociopath, not caring)
John’s problems are in his head (the psychosomatic limp, post traumatic stress disorder)
In the time they were together they sort of “fixed” each other. Sherlock made John’s limp go away and John helped to coax out Sherlock’s more human side.
These two are just lovely little puzzle pieces. Platonic or not, they’re just such SOULMATES.
My absolute favorite thing about BBC Sherlock is how in series 1, you think it’s a show about a bunch of normal people living with a sociopath; but by series 3, you realize it’s about a clever landlady who used to work in a drug ring, a pathologist who convinced the world’s most terrifying criminal mastermind to watch Glee, an ex-CIA assassain trying to rebuild her life, an ex-army medic with an adrenaline addiction who laughs at crime scenes, a powerful British government official who cares more about his little brother’s safety than the security of the entire country, and an emotional genius who secretly loves dancing while he suppresses his feelings to prevent his heart from being broken.
The Oncoming Storm
My take on a darker version of the Doctor, reminiscent of the Dreamlord or the Valeyard. A man who’s been wounded one too many times, whose defenses have finally shattered under the guilt and pain and loneliness of centuries. He has finally turned his back on the universe, becoming the one thing he feared the most. The blood of entire worlds is on his hands, and there is no one left to stop him.

I will always reblog this because it’s spine-tingling.
