professor flitwick was ruthless as fuck like he even addressed harry by his name whilst asking for his name 

I think what I find even funnier is that Harry doesn’t use the ‘I’m Harry Potter’ response. He uses the ‘You’ve been my teacher for five years’ response.

Daft Punk - Doin’ it Right — dancing at panel x

Tim Minchin - White Wine in the Sun — iTunes on shuffle x

Fleetwood Mac — iTunes on shuffle x

James Rhodes — iTunes on shuffle x

Elbow - My Sad Captains — when asked about favourite song at the moment
- "I’m not good at favourties. I am listening to … I don’t know … ‘Elbow’! Their new album is pretty brilliant. ‘Sad Captains’ on that album is a fantastic song." [starts to try to quote ‘And if it’s all we only pass this way but once - What a perfect waste of time’ a couple of times, but cannot get it right, so he gets out his phone - smacks his lips] "Oh I don’t know …. du-dup-du-du-duuhhh." *scrolls through phone* "Recently played …" *smacks lips* "purchased nooo .. du-dup-du-du-duuuhhh" *keeps on scrolling*… "You can talk amongst yourselves, it’s fine. du-dup-du-du-duuhhh” *someone starts whistling* “du-dup-du-du-duuhhh. No no no, no whistling, but just talking.” … ”It’s a really really good song which is why I should probably just have it playing in the background of this answer to your question. I mean, this is the song I have been listening to an awful lot. I think they are an amazing band - ‘Elbow’. Guy Garvey is a friend and he is […] a lyrical genius, I think. He is a beautiful modern poet and a very deeply profoundly lovely human being and soul and I think his music and his words reflect all of that, aaaand … yeah I just .. I love this song.” *plays song … and he sings along quietly until he gets to the line he was trying to quote earlier* … “YEAH! ‘And if it’s all we only pass this way but once - What a perfect waste of time’. That’s a pretty beautiful motto for life really, isnt’ it? Elbow. Lots of Elbow.” - Benedict Cumberbatch

The National — listening to during signing x

Sigur Rós — listening to during signing x

Puff the Magic Dragon — reply to “most embarrassing song on iPhone” — quietly singing one line to the crowd

This purple pattern flickers on and off in front of Sherlock’s wound, John’s face and Sherlock’s face during the ambulance drive.

It is hidden in the middle of the flickering of the ambulance blinkers, but it differs from the light of the blinkers radically. The light of the blinkers is blue and white, it doesn’t flicker very bright inside the ambulance and it creates shadows. The purple light doesn’t create shadows and the pattern of it is the same in every shot, even in the mind palace. This means it is placed there afterwards, and someone placed it there on purpose.

Purple lighting is commonly used throughout the series. We see it in many scenes with great importance for the relationship between John and Sherlock: in ASiP during the dinner at Angelo’s, when Sherlock rejects John, and in the same episode in the Sherlock’s and cabbie’s two pills -scene behind a window on the background, before John saves Sherlock’s life. In TEH there is purple as well on the background when Sherlock rushes out of 221B to save John’s life, and in TSoT when Sherlock leaves the wedding after John has rejected him and laughed at those rumors. All these scenes make something shift in their relationship. They are scenes of feelings. If there is a theme color for the relationship and feelings between John and Sherlock, it is definitely purple.

Here in the ambulance scene we have a rapidly flickering purple pattern. The color symbol of their feelings highlights this:

WOUND

JOHN

SHERLOCK

…mind palace.

The theme color of their relationship flickering and fading, flashing on their faces and on the wound like an alarm. I don’t know what the pattern is or if it matters, but the color is there for purpose: it tells us this scene is important. This is about their relationship and their feelings. They are flickering, they are panicking.

And because Sherlock has already retreated into his mind palace and is barely conscious, this scene is especially from John’s POV. It means the panicked flickering represents especially John’s feelings. He is concerned, afraid, terrified. He sees their relationship flicker like it’s struggling to exist.

Wound, John and Sherlock. Then into the mind palace: the pattern fades away, flickering dies.

Sherlock dies.

We didn’t get to see weeping John or a bedside scene. The cinematography tells us what he felt.

I don’t watch Supernatural so I thought these were all fake quotes so whAT EVEN IS THIS SHOW

Happiness and laughter mixed with large amounts of angst and tears, all wrapped up in a thick layer of masochism.

Accurate.
