So i gained 11 followers today. I assume it was the Sherlolly post? Whatever it was you’re all welcome and thank you!
So I’ll talk a lot about BBC Sherlock and Sherlolly and Benedict Cumberbatch. I usually tag Benedict as “bendy” or “sir can you not.” Sherlock is tagged bbcsherlock because I don’t always want my original posts in the sherlock tag.
I will try very hard to tag all spoilers with “sherlock spoilers” though I am trying to avoid them.
I’ll be attempting to go on hiatus from December 15th until January 1st, but I’m building up my queue.
I do write fanfiction. I post links here but you can check it all out here.
I talk about theatre a lot. I’m a director and stage manager. Dabbling in playwrighting.
And then there’s a lot of random stuff mostly cats and feminism and anti racism and food.
I stan hard for female characters, especially ones that get a lot of hate.
Oh, and I’m doing a giveaway!
Benedict Cumberbatch is a big fucking dork but fucking fuck the THIRST.
This week so far has felt like being in school and going to class all day and then being in rehearsal all night except that I’m too old for this shit.
Honestly, I’m trying to avoid a lot of crap on Tumblr right now, but I’m trying to wrap my brain around anyone—much less a bunch of adults—freaking out because a female character is showing up on a television show.
Look: no one is taking away your fanfic. Canon has never matched fanfic. It never will. The two are separate entities. YOUR OTP WILL NEVER BE CANON. That’s why we read and write fanfic.
If you are freaking out and hating on a character that we haven’t even met yet because ‘OMG MY OTP’, you need to take a deep breath and remember this is just a tv show, and you still have thousands of fanfics with your OTP in them, compared to 4 and a half hours of television.
(And as a personal request: if you have to hate on a female love interest, tag it, so I can block the tag.)
Geeze, my OTP got hit pretty hard by potential canon. Am I hating on the poor guy? No. I would like to understand what the nature of this is, but hate him? Nah.
And to all of the people who are saying it sinks the ship: YOU’RE SHIPPING WRONG. If you like something, you like something, regardless of what may SEEM to “come in the middle”.
Frankly, this news has just made me want to write more smut. Which benefits everyone.
I think that I will try very hard to fill my 50 Reasons to Have Sex collab prompt this evening.
I have to go to rehearsal, so in celebration of our first day on our set and what will surely be the usual hilarity of actors and stairs, I’m bringin’ back my contribution to the “shit blank say” meme from almost two years ago.
So yeah. It’s begun. Time to analyze the crap out of the promo photos that were dropped today.
Of course, I freaked out over all of them, but as an avid Sherlolly shipper, obviously, I have been laser focused on three in particular.
This was the first one I saw and my heart kind of did a flip and I squealed.
I keep wondering 1), why they would reveal an engagement in promo pics when it’s juicy, and 2), why they would feature a likely minor character like Tom in a promo photo. They’ve never even had Molly in promo pictures before, this is actually her first time. And now they’re showing Tom, who is in two episodes apparently (the first two). It feels like we’re being baited to freak out. And we have.
YES. Like I feel like this is the exact reaction we’re supposed to have and I don’t wanna be manipulated but I’m also freakin’ out.
svartalfhild answered to your post “Thoughts. I have them.”
The Man Pain® idea is something I would completely see Mofftiss doing, but I hope they don’t.
I’ve been really afraid of it. Like, it’s really my number one reason for really not wanting to see it become canon.
