*SPOILER ALERT* I hate the e when he jumps of the building it just makes me cry I mean if Sherlock was real and he told me his goodbyes I would sob to death and just run to him just to stop him from doing but I do understand why he did it.
This was lovely T_T I really love how it looks and how Sherlock's hand and scarf looks compared to John. I would just recommend that next time remove the bar inbetween because it makes it look more like two seperate images rather than a single one. It would have a better compostion if it was a single one
It was actually meant to serve as two separate pieces for dramatic purposes! It was initially posted as two piece on Tumblr and to my delight people were both amused and devastated with my decision in order to convey the meaning of "so close yet so far" lol. I understand though, what you mean by removing the bar in this submission for dA, since I am no longer utilizing the visual structure of the website itself! Oh well, I'm too lazy to change it now lol x) ;;;
I rarely comment but I really love this piece, I was recently introduced to Sherlock but I instantly fell in love with the Series. I finished a couple days ago and this wonderful piece of art really illustrates (in my opinion) the feel of the last 10 or so minutes of The Reichenbach Fall. Even though all you see are their hands' you can absolutely feel the panic, denial, and fear in the desperate reaching of John's hand as well as the sense of resignation and regret in Sherlock's. The color contrast is also a wonderful comparison of the two. John being, as Sherlock himself said an unbeatable conductor of light and Sherlock (as far as John knows) falling into the darkness of death. This is by far one of the best I have seen, remaining visually simple while still being emotionally charged.
ARGH... How a picture like THIS, wh¡ch really doesn't shows any face, can be so touching, so true, so, so... So Sherlock and John, damn it! I cried with the damn chapter and now I'm very close to tears again only by remembering it TT^TT
I hate to be that one guy. But for some reason I feel that they shouldn't have chosen this story to end the season. It would have worked better if they saved it for the very end, when the show would be ending entirely. Even Conan Doyle originally planned to kill Sherlock for good, an only wrote another story because the fans asked for it.
I think it makes sense though. I mean, in the end, no matter what the cause, Sherlock coming back to reunite with John IS a fact in the canon, so if Mofftiss place Reichanbach Fall at the very end, how are they going to adapt the part where Sherlock comes back? (Assuming they're only going to do three seasons, which is very likely considering the pattern flow)
Yeah, see but there's a problem. You can explain and get away with Sherlock falling off a waterfall and somehow surviving that. Here, he dropped from a roof of a frickin' building and Watson saw it. Unless Sherlock is a vampire or Jesus himself, I see no plausible way they can explain this or make it seem possible enough. Thing is, I always found the return of Sherlock story a little weak, and wanted that he actually stayed dead, would be a great way for such a hero to go out in a blaze of glory fighting pretty much his own nemesis. But that's just my view and opinion
oh, nonono, his survival is VERY much explained as long as you are observant enough You see, John DIDN'T see Sherlock fall-- or let me rephrase that-- John never saw Sherlock HIT the ground. That part is key. Because John was blocked by a short building in front of him. Rewatch that scene when John just arrived and Sherlock telling him to "go back the way you came from" when he attempted to round the corner. Then, notice that once Sherlock 'landed', there was a truck loaded with bags right in front of the body. It drove away the moment John regained his balance from being knocked down, or even before that. That alone tells you everything you need to know. As for the 'body', remember Sherlock asking Molly for help? Sherlock said, "I'm going to die". Molly replied, "What do you need?" Sherlock said, "I need you." Remember that Molly does post-mortem work.
This theory has been most widely established in the Sherlock fandom now.
How is it a stretch? xD I find it very plausible seeing as every angle have been considered. There are enough blatantly obvious clues to be seen throughout the episode. I appreciate Mofftiss for doing that, or else if they've just left us in the dark without giving us a chance to decipher the mystery, then Sherlock's fall won't be convincing at all. On the other hand, to explain JIM surviving/pulling off a bullet-in-mouth trick? Now THAT is effing hard, even though I really hope that he is alive.
Now that's somethin' I really doubt, if he shot himself in the temple...Umm..There is a sort of 50/50 chance of him being alive, and even then it's pretty slim. Unlesssss....Jim wasn't the real Moriarty and just one of his so called 'clones', while the real is looking from the shadows. Actually, that would be pretty an interesting twist, that Moriarty has all these doubles, and no one knows who the real one is.
