I think this is the best Granada screencap ever.
“My dear Watson, I owe you a thousand apologies. I had no idea that you would be so affected.”
Sherlock Holmes - The Empty House
Sherlock Holmes and Sebastian Moran
“You are afraid of something?” I asked.
“Well, I am.”
(Granada’s The Final Problem meets Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows)
I couldn’t get the background to become transparent because everything was being rubbish
brett!holmes is so difficult to draw AAAAAAAAAAAAA
“This, gentlemen, is Colonel Sebastian Moran, once of Her Majesty’s Indian Army, and the best heavy game shot that our Eastern Empire has ever produced.
I believe I am correct, Colonel, in saying that your bag of tigers still remains unrivaled? I wonder that my very simple stratagem could deceive so old a shikari. It must be very familiar to you.
Have you not tethered a young kid under a tree, lain above it with your rifle, and waited for the bait to bring up your tiger?
This empty house is my tree and you are my tiger!”
And you’re my tiger!
(Brettlock shouting angrily… like a tiger)
Considering they took out some of the most homoerotic lines from canon (the ones which are largely responsible for me being a massive Holmes/Moran shipper for canon), I still think this is kind of homoerotic.
I’m probably going to stop fiddling with this now.
In my head!canon Holmes is played by Jeremy Brett and Moran is played by Jason Isaacs. Since alas I’d need a time machine to put them together for real, I have to resort to manips to make this happen. So this is my latest attempt at one.
(And if you’re wondering why Holmes and Moran are in the same space and not trying to murder each other, that’s because I ship them like burning.)
Let’s play ‘spot Sebastian Moran’.
(In flashback, Moran shooting at Holmes after Professor Moriarty’s demise at the Reichenbach Falls; from Granada’s The Empty House.)
