okay but can we clear something up about joan and sherlock
whose orbit is either one really in?
joan watson is not a rocky planet orbiting a brilliant sun
sherlock holmes is not the massive star that’s the only thing that holds joan in place
neither is it the other way around, that’s not the way their relationship has been, especially after all the equality and partnership and “you make me better” and everything that elementary established so well in season one
THIS IS A BINARY STAR SYSTEM
THEY ORBIT AROUND EACH OTHER
(or if that’s not exactly how stars work i’m sorry i’m not a scientific expert)
(the point still stands)
YES! I was just about to post the same thing (sort of). I think Joan’s lack of self esteem prevents her from realizing she is a star, equal to Holmes. They are a binary system. And her time away from him may help her come to understand her own worth. Sherlock tells her, they each bring their special talents to the partnership, that’s what makes it work. It is a sweet way of acknowledging how much she cares for him tho’. Joan just needs to learn to value herself as much as she does him, to make the conscious decision to re-enter the dance, the orbit around each other, rather than having just fallen into it by default.
Marya Morevna, all in black, here and now, was a point at which all the women she had been met—the Yaichkan and the Leningrader and the chyerti maiden; the girl who saw the birds, and the girl who never did—the woman she was and the woman she might have been and the woman she would always be, forever intersecting and colliding, a thousand birds falling from a thousand oaks, over and over.

"I can offer you my life, but it is a short life; I can offer you my heart, though I have no idea how many more beats it shall sustain. But I love you enough to hope that you wil not care that I am being selfish in trying to make the rest of my life - whatever length - happy, by spending it with you."
