#can we just talk about how absolutely perfect mary morstan-watson is? #out of all the people sherlock knows he sent moriarty’s book to her #he had enough faith in her to know that she’d be able to understand what needed to be done and to crack the code #mary morstan isn’t some victorian housewife who twiddles her thumbs and waits for her husband to come home #she managed to captivate and get captain john watson to fall in love with her #she is the one who doesn’t mind stepping toe to toe with sherlock holmes even though she is a lady and it isn’t her place #she is just as strong as irene adler but in a completely different way #and sherlock holmes knows it #sherlock holmes is a smart man- even he can see mary’s brilliance #i wish tumblr could (marymorstan)

Sherlock + Watson
They still live for all that love them well.
One of the volumes in the library is How Watson Learned the Trick. Arthur Conan Doyle wrote the story into the tiny book by hand in 1922. It’s only 503 words long, but took up 34 pages.
Watson had been watching his companion intently ever since he had sat down to the breakfast table. Holmes happened to look up and catch his eye.
“Well, Watson, what are you thinking about?” he asked.
“Yes, Holmes. I was thinking how superficial are these tricks of yours, and how wonderful it is that the public should continue to show interest in them.”
