Today in maths, someone behind me said “I’m cold.” and my automatic response was to reply “Hi cold, I’m dad.” and in that moment, I realised. That I, a sixteen year old girl, had become a dad.
If you were suspicious of Mary Morstan from the start, you’ve got a great ear.
Listen to the strings in these audio samples. The first is from the scene in The Reichenbach Fall where John picks up the envelope with the breadcrumbs in it. The second, also from TRF, is Donovan introducing the sound bridge from 221b to Aldate’s and the third is from the scene in The Empty Hearse of John in front of Sherlock’s grave. They all employ the same wind-blown/howling hammering effect. The scenes are connected sonically! (It’s also used in the music of TBB during the opera scene and in Belarus in TGG but I associate it primarily with these bits from the soundtrack in TRF.)
You could argue that Mary’s entrance on the scene at the grave site transforms the ominous start of the music to something brighter, a new beginning as the camera rises above the couple. But I didn’t feel that way. I took it as a kind of sugar coating of the more powerful and memorable plinkings of Moriarty’s threats in TRF. I associated Mary with the danger of Moriarty almost immediately.

when i was in year 5, i did a speech on clumsiness for my school’s public speaking contest and to be clever, i tripped on my way to the stage dropping my note cards all over the place, but then i pulled the real ones out of my pocket saying ‘if you’re going to be clumsy, it pays to be prepared!’
everyone lost their shit and i got second place
If you got second place who got first… Did they talk about fire safety and burn the stage down or something

When I was in 3rd grade, I said “damn” and the teacher heard me, so I told her I was doing a project on beavers, but I kind of freaked out that she would find out I was lying, so I actually made a diorama about a beaver dam just so no one would know I swore.
