Coffin1 by ShyCustis Coffin1 by ShyCustis
Sherlock watched the doctor faze out after his final string of words. John was a dweller, worrier. Sherlock was clearly alive before him, but he still seemed burdened by the idea that he had been dead. “Well, you’ve made your decision now- you can be yourself, again.” It wouldn’t be that easy, though Sherlock wouldn’t understand. “And it is a foolish decision, but you’ve tied my hands and I’ve nothing left but to accept it, even if bitterly. Your stubbornness might kill you alongside me, but-” he sighed, though it sounded more of relief than anger, “-we’ll just have to share a coffin, I suppose.”

“Oh, God, share a coffin? With you?” John muttered, humour lacing his words. “I thought 221B was enough.”

(Excerpt; Kenzie as John, Shy as Sherlock.)

This picture is really, really, really amazing. I like, want it tattooed. I want it tattooed on my eyelids so i can look at it all the time.

I really love this so much. ;________: :heart: It's so beautiful... and the dialogue that goes with it makes my heart hurt it's so good.. this is too good shy.. wow. I don't know what the circumstances are or how they got into this or what but the fact is I love the idea of them sharing a coffin together I love them tucked in together like this and John just look at John and omg I can't express how much I love this I'm shutting up now but I always come back to stare at this picture every time I see it and spend time on it and yeah it's like perfect man.

Gorgeous, morbid, and absolutely perfect. I love how the Moriarty coffin is perfectly arranged and put together, with lots of flowers, while in the Holmes coffin everything is turned awry, and crumpled newspapers and origami lotuses(!) make do in place of flowers. I think it says a lot about the characters.

Thanks! I believe you're the first person to mention the difference in how they're arranged. <3

You're very welcome!

I'm surprised, as that was really the first thing that jumped out at me about the pictures... well, the first thing after the roses in Col. Moran's eyes. :D

I think he fact that this is so creepy is what it makes it so hauntingly beautiful... •______•'

technically a very good drawing. i like the outlines and the little paper flowers from tbb included here. but i don´t really understand the story/ symbolism this pic tries to get across

Ohmy. *brain explodes*
That's.... Sad, but gorgeous. I love work that doesn't spell itself out, and this seems to have quite the story behind it. They lived so fast, they couldn't even buy a second coffin or get laid out properly? Or is it some kind of expression of their friendship/love? Or am I thinking too hard? :O
