I know Season 3 aired a billion years ago, and I need to move on, but it really bugs me that Sherlock’s parents didn’t come to his funeral. Like why go to all that effort to plan the perfect fake death if you’re not even going to have your parents corroborate your story.
I feel like their absence would be a HUGE tip off to Moriarty (if he’s still alive) or his minions (if he’s not) that Sherlock wasn’t really dead. Like if he knows all kinds of information about Sherlock, surely he looked into his parents??
(And I feel like if Sherlock’s death was the huge media event the show made it out to be, his parents would have to come to the funeral in order to not raise the suspicions of the press. Like any journalist worth their salt would go camp out on his parents’ doorstep.)
Like there are a lot things that annoy me about Season 3, but the illogic of his parents not coming to the funeral really gets me because it seems absurd that a detail that important would be overlooked by both Holmes brothers.
OK super-late rant is now over.
Cap ‘n Quote: Pride and Prejudice (2005)
request by neatandproper:
Elizabeth Bennet: He’s been a fool about so many things, about Jane, and others… but then, so have I. You see, he and I are so similar. We’ve been nonsensical! Papa, I…
Mr. Bennet: You really do love him, don’t you?
Elizabeth Bennet: Very much.
So I’ve lived in Texas 16 years and today I got my first pair of cowboy boots. Bit of a delayed milestone I’d say.

"Never thought I’d die fighting side by side with an elf."
"What about side by side with a friend?"
"Aye, I could do that."

So it appears my laptop is working again! I got a new hard drive and my Dad put it in and then Dad and I reinstalled Leopard and voila!
I still haven’t gotten any of my data back from the old hard drive yet, but fingers crossed!
I already redownloaded Chrome and am working on iTunes and then I’ll redownload Skype. And I’ll have to redownload Word eventually. And RealPlayer and QuickTime and I’m sure other things will come to me later on.
But hey! I didn’t have to spend $1000 on a new Mac so I’m happy!
