You were not the threat you had been made out to be
#natalie dormer’s goddamn physicality with all its aggression and performative lioness grace #jfc #but also how clearly you can see irene adler /was/ moriarty deweaponized; irene adler was still the same woman #the same fearsome intellect; the same sharpened knife wit and talent; just blurred instead of deliberately brought out #and put into performance #irene adler was not a lie; was never a lie; you can see it right here; in how moriarty is so clearly the same woman #just … stripped bare of sociability or obfuscation #she is better than sherlock for the same reason she’s better than irene; her singular bullet-streamlined sense of purpose #to her own will to power; where irene and sherlock have or had no greater overwhelming structural goal with zero moral compunctions #had nothing to weaponize for #she does; and is; a living breathing knife in the dark; because of the work she does; the work she has created and taken upon herself #(but sherlock was her blindspot like she was his; and that’s how she got caught) via okayophelia
Having friends on tumblr is really great. I often refer to you guys in real life as “my friend from england/autrallia/california/new york” and it makes people think I’m very well traveled when really I’ve just spent a lot of time on the Internet.
Taken near Bixby Bridge north of Big Sur, CA, this is a 12 shot vertical panorama taken around 4 am this past Monday, when the Milky Way was pretty high in the sky. The glow near the horizon is a lighthouse just around the bend.
All shots are 20 seconds, except the bottom one, which is 3 minutes
