Let’s talk about how Lestrade kept a box full of Sherlock’s things in his desk drawer for two years after his fall.
He literally just had it there for 2 years before he was ready to give them to John. He probably sat at his desk sometimes when he had nothing to do, and just opened up his drawer and stared at this box full of trinkets that’s probably the only thing of Sherlock’s that he owns. Imagine him running the train around his keyboard or re-reading when Sherlock had written on the scrap of paper until the edges are worn and starting to tear. Imagine him watching the video for the first time since the funeral and laughing until he cries. There’s nothing of much worth in there, so why else would it take him so long to bring himself to let it go?
ouch this hurts a lot
i love it
