Love can’t conquer anything
If it’s lost without a trace
You might be tough, you might even be strong
But not when you’re in this place
SHERLOCK AU - One year since his supposed death, Sherlock discovers Irene Adler’s whereabouts for the first time since their meeting in Karachi. Though his unexpected appearance sends her into a panic, Sherlock manages to chase her down again.
"You being here isn’t very good for me.”
"I’ve been working to dismantle Moriarty’s network for almost a year now. It’s a slow and carefully executed process."
“So that’s why you faked your death. But I don’t understand why you’re here.”
"Serbia is the last branch I need taken care of. I assumed Montenegro would be a good and convenient place as any to polish up my Serbian before I embark on the final mission."
"No, Mr Holmes. Why are you here in front of me?”
SHERLOCK AU - Sherlock sneaks Irene Adler into John’s wedding party.
"You should at least stay for a dance, Sherlock."
"There are others things I’d much rather be doing."
"For one, keeping you from stealing John and Mary’s honeymoon trip."
"Oh, but it’s Barbados! We could go together."
SHERLOCK AU - After tracking down Irene Adler, Sherlock finds himself in the middle of a heist.
"Up to old tricks again?"
“A girl has to eat. Dinner?”
"I have a much better idea."
SHERLOCK AU - Irene appears in Sherlock’s mind palace to help him fight for his life against Moriarty’s taunts.
"What are you supposed to be? An angel?"
"If that’s what you like."
"Please. You of all people know I don’t care for such sentiments."
"Yet here I am. Angelic. And nice. Just for you, Sherlock. Just for you.”
"To be is to be perceived, and so to know thyself is only possible through the eyes of the other. The nature of our immortal lives is in the consequences of our words and deeds, that go on and are pushing themselves throughout all time. Our lives are not our own. From womb to tomb, we are bound to others, past and present, and by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future."
“You are going to break your promise. I understand. And I hold my hands over the ears of my heart, so that I will not hate you.”
