Sherlock’s Military Kink is Canon!
In A Study in Pink when Sherlock introduces John to 221B he has a copy of Eagle: Adventure Survival Truth Magazine in the boxes with his trunk.
EDIT -> Professorfonz figured out the magazine was Eagle and found an earlier issue of it. (I tracked down Sherlock’s issue.) On behalf of her amazingness, you’re welcome!
EDIT -> Tween!Sherlock. This magazine appears to have run in the 1980’s only so they’re probably from Sherlock’s youth which makes sense given that they’re with what I’m claiming is the boarding school trunk.
Trunk Photo from Arwel Wyn Jones’s 221b set panorama.
EDIT -> Sherlock’s is the June, 1983 issue of Eagle Adventure Survival Truth Magazine. Headlines include: “Street Fighting Techniques,” “L.A.W. Update,” “82nd Airborn,” etc. I’m looking for a better photo of the issue.
I’M LAUGHING SO HARD I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS
THIS IS FANTASTIC. Though Sherlock would have been two years old when this issue came out. So either he got it/found it used later to add to his spankbank material at boarding school, or…he stole it from under Mycroft’s bed. 0_0
new bra from victoria secret! :)
A woman stands in her bedroom. She is with her attractive male lover. The air is filled with desire. They both look into each other’s eyes. The female, with a slightly bashful smile, takes off her clothes, starting with the pants first, and finally the shirt. She is wearing the bra. The man’s eyes opened wider in interest. His interest is peaked. The woman strutted closer to him, her eyes batting and her smile growing. She leans into his ear and with a breathy voice, she spoke:
I graduate in three days, I pay my own bills, I have a car, and I’m reading fanfiction about a lettuce bra.
It has a little lettuce bow.

AND I DEFEATED THE KING OF THE HUUUUUUUNS
This is the best thing ever.
The scene removed from A Study In Pink that I FUCKING WISH WAS STILL IN IT OMG
MOFFAT HOW COULD YOU WRITE THIS AND NOT INCLUDE IT OH GOD
Every now and again, I get asks from people who’ve read the S&S entries for ASiP and TBB and don’t believe that we’re supposed to suspect Sherlock is suicidal. (Or John, for that matter.) Here’s another piece of evidence.
The first episode is about suicide for a reason. There are suicidal shot compositions and visual metaphors for both John and Sherlock in that same episode for a reason. It’s because they’re both depressed and clinging to reasons to keep living.
This makes that moment in SoT, “we would never do that to John Watson,” about six million times more poignant and painful for me. Particularly with Reichenbach in between these two moments.
