The sheer amount of booty in this one should be illegal.
But the simple tenderness in the eighth and ninth panels is delightful. Reapersun has had great things going on all through this. (And funny ones, as usual.)
There are many people who are dissatisfied with Sherlock S3, as anyone knows who’s not been living under a rock somewhere in Valles Marineris. In this context (not from this context of course, but now a lot more visible as a result) arises the phenomenon of the “Fix-It Fic”: fanfic that purports to explain more rationally or help make sense of something that we’ve all seen and by which many of us have been left emotionally or otherwise flummoxed.
Just now one of these has completed that I’ve been watching with increasing admiration over recent days/weeks, because it is simply the damndest thing I’ve ever seen in this regard. It makes sense of S3, and most particularly “His Last Vow”, and it does it backwards.
I am stunned and delighted and in awe. God but this is an amazing and ambitious and audacious thing: a genuine tour de force. (Not least because the reasoning is excellently sound and the characterizations are all in good order.) PlaidAdder, whoever and wherever you may be, I salute you. I haven’t seen anything like this since Will Kempe who Morris-danced from London to Norwich. (He was going to do it from London to Jerusalem, but the finance fell through. Damn all non-performing co-production partners.)
Here it is. Think season 3 needs fixing? Go read this and see how it works for you.
Hello. I just re-watched the pilot episode, and I could be absolutely wrong, but I think there is Anteros (the Greek god of requited love) in it, when the title shows. Subtext? I can't help it, I'm 'clueing for looks' all over the show, because you spoiled me. :P I love your blog & metas btw, and I think you're brilliant! Also, sorry if that's already been answered.
A bit more context, per WIkipedia’s entry on Piccadilly Circus: :
You guys. Uh, yeah. This is true.
For reference, here’s Anteros, the Greek god of requited love… the wiki picture is this exact statue. That’s REQUITED love. REQUITED. Anteros is specifically the avenger of unrequited love.
SINCE THE PILOT. WHAT HAVE I BEEN SAYING? WHAT HAVE I BEEN SAYING?
Bless you, anon. Bless you.
While the statue is generally believed to depict Eros, it was created as an image of his twin brother, Anteros. The sculptor Alfred Gilbert had already sculpted a statue of Anteros and, when commissioned for the Shaftesbury Memorial Fountain, chose to reproduce the same subject, who, as “The God of Selfless Love” was deemed to represent the philanthropic 7th Earl of Shaftesbury suitably. Gilbert described Anteros as portraying “reflective and mature love, as opposed to Eros or Cupid, the frivolous tyrant.” The model for the sculpture was Gilbert’s studio assistant, a 16-year-old Italian, Angelo Colarossi (born 1875).
However, it should be mentioned that to a British audience this statue is instantly recognizable as one of the most famous symbols of London, and could simply have been intended as quick visual shorthand to tell the viewer where the story was about to unfold.
