“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 is #because in making her a conscious manipulation; an artful and purposeful creation by moriarty in order to ensnare sherlock #they have destroyed The Woman; the one individual who eclipsed the whole of her sex and at whose feet Sherlock fell #they’ve taken the goddess down off her pillar and revealed the woman in the fridge was a doll all along #Irene Adler is only a story; can only ever be a story; because there is no Woman #only women #and they are villains as well as heroines and they are clever even when they make mistakes and they can hold the world together whether to take advantage of it or to save it for the people they love but there is no Woman #there never could be #and Sherlock had to learn that

#margaery tyrell literally hands out little tyrell sigils #she gives toys to the children replete with her own house colors #lest they forget who their savior was #she reminds them daily who it is they have to thank that they’re alive #and she does it while empowering them to fight for her some day #to fight for her family #the best game player in westeros ladies and gentlemen  #a golden rose on a green field
