Sometimes I think about the Weasleys’ clock

thestarsarelaughing:

And I just… no wonder Molly didn’t like them going back to Hogwarts, because every freaking year Ron’s hand swings round to “mortal peril” and she almost never gets an explanation for that.

"But mum, it’s so safe!"

"You were in mortal peril more times in your first year than your father was in fifteen years at the Ministry, I don’t think ‘but it’s safe’ is going to cut the mustard, Ronald."

shylocks:

if they are building up to a canonical romantic relationship between John&Sherlock this show is honestly pretty brilliant, and I’m not even talking queer representation and Sherlock Holmes history and what it would mean to me and so many others, I’m talking of quality, structure and construction of the narrative, literally everything is at stake at this point it’s incredible

on the other hand if they aren’t, in addition to everything else, this show is a bloody mess of plot holes and its quality is lower than EastEnders’
