Ask me anything   Submit   Hi! My blog is about Lara Pulver (Irene Adler in Sherlock), Michelle Dockery (Lady Mary from Downton Abbey), musical theatre etc. Not too many posts, minimum of reblogs, lots of original photos. "Sky sparkling with diamonds" is a line from "Uncle Vanya" - a play by Chekhov, in which both Lara and Michelle had played.

My Irish Dance blog is sky-dance.tumblr.com

I’ve waited a long, long while for us to get started
I’ve got a list of things that I want to do.
I know you’re scared and shy,
But don’t leave me broken-hearted
Sherlock, let me get closer to you.

Since I first saw your lips, that’s where I’ve been headin’.
I’ve had so many dreams that you never knew.
Now we’re alone at last;
Let’s not wait for Armageddon!
Sherlock, let me get closer to you.

I can be cool and calm or dominating.
I can be anything you want me to,
But let it start tonight,
‘Cause i’m ready and i’m waiting –
Sherlock, let me get closer to you.

Feet turning black
Is this the path we must walk?
No turning back
Wish I could just hear you talk

#irene adler  #Sherlock  #adlock 

together and apart: one of the many fascinating things about a scandal in belgravia is the “choreography” between irene adler and sherlock holmes. in all their scenes, they are engaged in a dance — stepping forward, pulling back, going past, turning, following, encircling — locked in each other’s orbit, yet refusing to be bogged down by gravity. it’s an indication of what they are (mirrors), what they could be (partners), and what they can never have (constancy).
