Lying the bath last night working on a talk for media studies students next week I remembered something (I always get inspiration in silly places). I’d read somewhere that John’s eulogy at Sherlock’s gravesite in The Reichenbach Fall was very similar to Kirk’s eulogy at Spock’s funeral in The Wrath of Khan. Thankfully as I was reading fan fiction on my tablet I could use YouTube to run a check.
They are SO similar someone had to have been clued-in about something very ‘hush hush’ at the time (and I don’t think it was the writer of TRF either). When I meta I keep on about identifying writers, especially Mr Moffatt, from the rhythm and cadence of speeches in his scripts. John’s speech is pretty certainly one of his. Mr Gattis’ similarily referenced line about Spock in The Hounds of Baskerville may well mean he was in on it too.
I should remember this when I talk about Use and Gratification when I lecture to Media Students.

More A Study in Pink Cosplay.
khorazir alone in Broadwick Street in Soho last October.
I do so love photographing cosplayers, these ladies are wonderful but any cosplayers will do.They allow me to play in Sherlock’s London; go to the right places and with an open mind, the right people, and the right time of day you don’t even need a good imagination - you are there.
NOT sure why this hasn’t turned up on anyone’s tumblr before now, sphere you go.

The Mystery of the Cardboard Box …
As many guessed correctly when I posted the lineart a while ago, this scene for February’s “Let’s Draw Sherlock" Challenge: Historical Moments depicts the Fall of the Berlin Wall in November 1989 when the GDR finally opened its borders for its citizens and so a major step was taken towards the reunification of Germany.
For a while I wasn’t sure whether to depict the boys as adults or at the age they would have been in 1989, but eventually decided on the latter as it seemed more authentic. So Sherlock is around 12, and John a few years older. For extra authenticity, there’s also some … er … interesting late 1980s fashion and hairstyles ;).
Yeah …but … if that is youthful Sherlock and John sitting on the wall why are an older glasseswearing!John and a greenshirtwearing!Sherlock standing in the crowd?
