┕ Sherlock Holmes; "Point I’m trying to make is that I am the most unpleasant, rude, ignorant, and all round obnoxious arsehole that anyone could possibly have the misfortune to meet. I am dismissive of the virtuous, unaware of the beautiful, and uncomprehending, in the face of the happy."
As someone who ships Sherlock with both Molly and Irene, I’ve always loved this scene because Sherlock has always been aware of Molly’s feelings for him but, until this moment, he didn’t understand them. He couldn’t understand how hard it is to desire someone who you believe will never return your affections and how could he? He’s never felt that way about anyone before.
But then he met Irene Adler.
This scene is so important because Sherlock, not only understands and respects Molly’s affections for the first time, he empathizes with them. Which is as good as a confessing that, not only does he have affections for Irene Adler but, at this point, he believes they’re unrequited.
(Magenta is a purplish red color and one of the three primary colors of the subtractive CMYK color model. In the meaning of colors, magenta represents universal love at its highest level. A combination of red and violet, magenta contains the passion, power and energy of red, restrained by the introspection and quiet energy of violet. This color is also an instrument of change and transformation; it helps to release old emotional patterns that prevent personal and spiritual development and aids us in moving forward.)
My favorite thing about acting isn’t necessarily the acting part. It’s that you never stop learning, you’re constantly learning new skills and new things about people. To me that’s really interesting and fun.
