The absence contradicts itself:
the missing conjures what we miss.
You are not here, I’m not myself,
but still I talk to you like this.
You’re in the crowd, the news, the glimpse -
I make you there when you’re not there.
I trace your steps, I map your face,
I say your name, see you in air.
You’re all I know and so unknown.
I cannot hold you, yet I do:
please let me hold you in my head
and where you are now, hold me too.
How can you be so near and far?
You are not here. But here you are.
By Clare Pollard.

You were not the threat you had been made out to be
“You talked to one of my lieutenants. He has, over the years, played the role repeatedly and with great conviction. More often than not, he’s done so to protect my identity. Other times, it was because I suspected a potential client might.. struggle with my gender. As if men had a monopoly on murder.”
let me explain to you how genius the deconstruction of Irene Adler isbecause in making her a conscious manipulation; an artful and purposeful creation by moriarty in order to ensnare sherlockthey have destroyed The Woman; the one individual who eclipsed the whole of her sex and at whose feet Sherlock fellthey’ve taken the goddess down off her pillar and revealed the woman in the fridge was a doll all alongIrene Adler is only a story; can only ever be a story; because there is no Womanonly womenand they are villains as well as heroines and they are clever even when they make mistakes and they can hold the world togetherwhether to take advantage of it or to save it for the people they lovebut there is no Womanthere never could beand Sherlock had to learn thatelementarythe best goddamn showyour favs could never
