Books that people read romantically but shouldn’t because they’re missing the point:
- Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
- Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare
- The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
That’s your opinion.
there’s nothing romantic about a pedophile rapist, the senseless murder-suicide of teenagers because families can’t get their shit together or the hypocrisy of the roaring 20s
FINALLY SOMEONE SAYS IT
Anonymous said: John/Sherlock, family.
“I’m always amazed, you know,” says John from the safety of the kitchen as he and Sherlock watch Mr. and Mrs. Holmes bicker amicably in the living room.
“At how normal they are.” When John smiles, wrinkles crease at the corners of his eyes. “And how normal you… aren’t.”
Sherlock sighs. “It’s my cross to bear.”
“Maybe it’s a sign of things to come,” John remarks, crossing his arms. “After all, we’re all supposed to end up like our parents, in the end.”
“If this is to be my fate, John, you might as well have me taken out back and shot. Put an end to my misery before it even begins.”
“Oh, come on, that’s a little extreme…”
And as the conversation continues in this vein neither of them realizes that, in the living room, Mr. and Mrs. Holmes have fallen silent to watch Sherlock and John bicker amicably in the kitchen.
