#Manipulate
quote

In the recent BBC iteration of Sherlock they‘ve created a character who finds ways to #manipulate people and events more than I think Sherlock does in canon. Also, the scene this quote from just #manipulates all the feels right out of you.

ErinSueMreads Ughhh stopppppp! That was the worst ever 😭😭😭😭 (but definitely one of my favorite episodes 🤷🏻‍♀️) 1y
Lyanneee Poor John 😭 1y
TK-421 I ugly cry when I watch this scene 😭 1y
jpmcwisemorgan @ErinSueG @Lyanneee @TK-421 I think this show did a great job showing their relationship and how much it actually meant to both of them. In canon John faints when Sherlock comes back but I think that his response in this show is much more accurate to how a person might respond. I mean, I might not punch someone but I‘d be mad and it would take me a little bit to come to terms with not being told. 1y
ErinSueMreads I completely agree!! When he comes back is absolutely my favorite episode! I‘d probably punch him hahahaha 1y

“People like Henry always came back, because people like Henry knew how to use trust. It was the only thing people like Henry did know how to use. First they changed trust into need, then they changed need into a drug, and once that was done, they - what was Eddie‘s word for it? - push. Yes. They pushed it.”

“‘Lost to history is a story...‘ Those were his opening lines. About a tale you hoped was long forgotten. The story of a dark god, a lord of nightmare. But as you can now see, as I unwrap your ancient eyes... The Birdman lied.”

What is real? Who can be trusted? What happens when everyone is trying to #manipulate the story for their own ends?

Fun story and fantastic artwork for #cbbr #WeveGotIssues

#QuotsyJune18 Day 25: Because to #Manipulate another is to strip them of the capacity to choose for themselves. Seems to be happening a lot recently with fake news as a form of insidious manipulation.

Slajaunie I agree wholeheartedly with this quote! 1y
GatheringBooks @Slajaunie likewise! :) 1y
