Let the games commence!!! by xanseviera Let the games commence!!! by xanseviera
"The beating heart of the nation. Londinium to the Romans. Lundenwic to the Saxons. Lundenburg to Alfred the Great. But to all generations since: London. Our London of today. London has known suffering…

But London always rises again. London is a monument; to the hard times, to the good. Celebration of what we have been, what we are today. London. Our heart, and our sinews, and our voice. Poetry, and prose. People, and places. London now throws open its doors to a new theatre of dreams. A city in waiting. A city on the move; humans on the move. Fascination with making the next step faster, stronger, and being the fastest and the strongest.

This… is London of the Olympic Games. And since this is our heart and our voice, London must feel and speak of romance, of love. London is ready- so take a deep breath… But not for long, for London is about to cry out… with heart and soul!

Let the games commence."


Benedict Cumberbatch, London 2012

Kreig - Someone call the Narcotics unit! I think someone poisoned the writer!
Minna - She's just in awe. *takes a look* Mmnn... I can see why.
Kreig - What?
Minna - This one's a ten.
Kreig - Wait... You said I was a nine...? I lost to a Brit?

Sorry, my a little shameless adevertizing for a totally different fandom. My detective's a bit Sherlockian. We both very much like this. [link] to her.

Oof, awesome job! I live in America so I didn't get to see this on tv, but thank goodness for Tumblr and YouTube, that's the only way I found out about this! :D
Best opening for tv coverage ever.

I wonder if they would have picked another to do this if Benedict hadn't played Sherlock? It was definitely a squee for all the fangirls! :D

I totally agree. :stare: I saw him on that roof and gave a little internal squeak. Which actually turned out to be external, because everyone in the room was suddenly looking at me xD
