Am I the only one who thinks the fandom have misinterpreted this line?
From what I’ve seen everyone seems to think it means Sherlock feels upset when he thinks John isn’t looking at him (because he wants John to look at him, to notice him….actually I interpreted it as in Sherlock being sad because he’s going to destroy his entire life and reputation in order to defeat Moriarty, and while for him John counts (because the man notices things and cares about him) and is someone from whom he has to hide, while Molly is not someone who is going to notice him anyway, because she’s just little plain Molly in his head… But she does notice. And thus he re-evaluates her and then in 3rd season we have ‘the person he thought didn’t matter at all to me, is the one who mattered the most’. At least that is my view on the matter.
When Molly says, “I don’t count,” Sherlock has is very visibly taken aback. The indication of his surprised facial expression is that he can’t believe she thinks that. There seems to be rather icky idea that he didn’t value her before TRF or pay her any attention before she displayed insight, but his reaction in this scene shows Sherlock being shocked that she classified herself that way. She isn’t “just plain little Molly.” I’m not saying that as a shipper. What backs this up is the fact that he says point blank that she was wrong and adds, “You do count. You’ve always counted and I’ve always trusted you.” Quite frankly, I think you missed the point.
Baby ducks, apparently imprinted on the wrong mama. Luckily, she’s okay with it.
#no one realizes the significance of this #the point of this movie is not that you will find another love #it’s that douches like tom will keep falling into the cycle of chasing a manic pixie dream girl #and probably think that she’s the one #but guess what? just because you listen to the same music or because she has a cute name #doesn’t mean that you’re meant for each other #500 days of summer the most misunderstood hipster hit the world has ever seen
And let’s talk about the fact that Joseph Gordon Levitt himself said the point of the movie is not so you’d feel bad for him and fall in love with him, it’s so you’d realize how selfish some people are.
Actual quote from him from an interview:
The (500) Days of Summer attitude of ‘He wants you so bad’ seems attractive to some women and men, especially younger ones but I would encourage anyone who has a crush on my character to watch it again and examine how selfish he is.”
"He develops a mildly delusional obsession over a girl onto whom he projects all these fantasies. He thinks she’ll give his life meaning because he doesn’t care about much else going on in his life. A lot of boys and girls think their lives will have meaning if they find a partner who wants nothing else in life but them. That’s not healthy. That’s falling in love with the idea of a person, not the actual person.”
Kasi the cheetah was just eight-weeks-old when he was introduced to Mtani, a 16-week-old female labrador. At the time Mtani towered over her younger friend and let the tiny cub clamber all over her. Now, two years later, the pair are the same height, and live together full time in the Cheetah habitat at Busch Gardens, Tampa, Florida. Visitors at the park can see Kasi and Mtani being trained by keepers and making use of the specially-designed habitat to run, and chase after each other. Kasi and Mtani also travel together to schools and community events to raise awareness of the importance of protecting wild cheetahs and to publicize Busch Gardens’ conservation work.
