"Today, all of humanity’s dreams are cursed somehow. Beautiful yet cursed dreams. I’m not even talking about wanting to be rich or famous. Screw that. That’s just hopeless. What I mean is, how do we know movies are even worthwhile? If you really think about it, is this not just some grand hobby? Maybe there was a time when you could make films that mattered, but now? Most of our world is rubbish. It’s difficult."

The Graduate (Mike Nichols, 1967)
there are exactly two acceptable endings for sherlock holmes and john watson:
- they die together at the exact same moment, holding hands, when they are like 100 years old
- they are immortal
also mike stamford not coming to john’s wedding is kind of important to me like i just picture him sitting at home watching telly and grumbing “fuck this nonsense i did not spend all day wandering around london looking for a toppy soldier so sherlock could be best man at his wedding jfc”
Don’t come back. Don’t think about us. Don’t look back. Don’t write. Don’t give in to nostalgia. Forget us all. If you do and you come back, don’t come see me. I won’t let you in my house. Understand? Whatever you end up doing, love it. The way you loved the projection booth when you were a little squirt.
