So often, modernizations and movie adaptations get a bad rap, and those who love the heart and soul of the original works fume at them with just indignation. But every once in a while, the adaptation isn’t bad. Every so often, they bring old worlds to new people, and that’s the best thing there is.
God bless this post.
I am an intelligent life form; I think I can distinguish an actor from the character he plays. I am also a fangirl; I will ship whoever the fuck I want and I will cross over whatever fucking franchises / universes / worlds / fandoms / series / books / movies / whatever-the-fuck-else I damn well please. And if my fangirling ruins your enjoyment of a franchise, then I have only one thing to say to you: grow the fuck up. You’re not a child, you are a fellow intelligent life form, you are more than capable of scrolling past such fangirling posts or simply avoiding the art or fanfics in question. You are also not privileged just because of a long-standing love for something. Fandoms belong to everyone, and if you seriously have an issue with that, I think the internet is simply not the place for you.
They’re just lurking on Twitter and Tumblr, reading all our theories until they find one they like.
I just did the math
for every episode of sherlock, there are almost 4,000 fanfictions
no you fuckers better reblog this, I did math for this do you understand, MATH
PLEASE DO NOT REBLOG IT. IF YOU HAVE, DELETE IT. IF YOU SEE IT, ASK THE PERSON WHO REBLOGGED IT TO DELETE IT.
Also, please don’t attack people if they have reblogged it. While this has been a problem for awhile, some people are genuinely unaware. Be kind, but firm. x

What is this thing about Amanda & Martin’s children?
While on set visiting Martin during Series 2 filming, a fan took an unsolicited photograph of Martin & Amanda’s children with Benedict. They never gave permission to have their children photographed and are very careful to keep them out of the public eye. They’ve asked that the photograph be taken down, but unfortunately it still recirculates ever so often. The best thing to do is to ask people to take it down citing the reasons above. Also reference THIS POST which has quotes from our interview with Amanda where we talk about this subject, DMs from her, and more information.
CAN WE TAKE A MINUTE
TO LOOK AT MY T-SHIRT
IT SAYS, “THERE IS NO KEY, DOOFUS” IN BINARY (WELL I THINK MINUS THE DOOFUS SINCE THE DOOFUS IS SPELLED OUT)
LOOK HOW BRILLIANT
LOOK HOW WITTY
LOOK HOW FANDOM
I AM SOBBING WITH JOY
OMG. SHERLOCK FANDOM. LOOK WHAT WE HAVE ACCOMPLISHED. WE HAVE COMPLETELY INVADED THE HIPSTERS AND THEY HAVE NO IDEA!
Day 221. I have earned the hipsters’ trust. They do not suspect I am a fucking insane member of a fucking insane fandom.
For the people who didn’t believe my english teacher is the best.
OH MY GOD
my teacher is actually tumblr
Observation: Sherlock is wearing his bed sheet.
Deduction: Sherlock sleeps naked.
Posit: Sherlock is only wearing the sheet to Skype. He usually wears nothing around the house.
Sherlock walks around the house wearing only a sheet, potentially maybe even less.
Sherlock often doesn’t seem to notice whether John is actually around or not.
If you were prone to bouts of partial or full nudity that you didn’t want anyone to witness, you’d pay more attention to the location of your “flatmate” to prevent embarrassing mishaps.
I infer from this that Sherlock walks around in this state whether John is in the room or not.
If you’re going to be so obvious, then why not say that Sherlock walks around naked all the time? Pff.
I’ll go a little further with the observations, if I may:
Observation #1: At the point we enter the conversation, Sherlock already has his laptop open in the kitchen and has made himself a cup of tea or coffee. Inference: he was already talking to John via Skype before temporarily going back into the bedroom.
Observation #2: When he comes out of the bedroom he has nothing in his hands - nothing that he might have been going back to retrieve. Also, John feels embarrassed. He must have gone back into the bedroom to cover himself up with a sheet, then, probably at John’s request.
Observation #3: It doesn’t seem too early in the day and yet Sherlock seems sleepy. Obviously he was up rather late, then. (That drink is probably coffee not tea).
Observation #4: John was in Dublin the previous day. Since he’s somewhere rural now and it’s probably still morning (unless Sherlock was up really late) it seems unlikely he’s been back to London yet.
Conclusion: Sherlock had the laptop in the bedroom with him (no doubt because he was talking to John in Dublin late into the night after going to bed). His sleep was interrupted by news about a new case - on learning where the crime scene was he contacted John to send him to the location. He then went back to sleep, then once John was at the scene he woke Sherlock up again via Skype. Sherlock, needing coffee, got up without bothering to dress, carried Skype-John into the kitchen, talked to him while strutting about naked making coffee before finally giving in to John’s pleas that he go and cover himself up. Because late at night is one thing, but mid-morning on a crime scene with a bunch of police officers looking over your shoulder at your naked flatmate is another.
AHHHHHHHH!!!what are the chances of finding a doctors office that has the names of my two favorite actors on it?!?!??i almost went in to see if it might actually be Benny and Martin… (Taken with Instagram)

- Between June 3rd and July 1st, exercise! And make sure you log it in Fitocracy. You can get points for everything from taking the stairs instead of the elevator to running a marathon.
- Once the challenge ends on July 1st, prizes will be awarded as follows:
- 1st place: $50 gift credit to antieuclid’s Random Emporium, the web’s best source for round geek humor, including Sherlock and Cabin Pressure buttons.
- 2nd place: $20 gift credit.

[edited to add:] The always awesome Cara McGee has generously offered to supplement the prizes with some of her incredible fandom teas! So you’ll be able to jog your way to a triumphant future of tea and buttons.
FS says: I am honestly starting to be concerned about the BBC Sherlock fandom. There seems to be this mean spirited edge to much of their amusements lately, whether mocking people for liking this wonderful shot of London because it happens to be an establishing shot from Sherlock (which by the way I think is probably stock footage from BBC … ) or mocking Elementary in disturbing ways despite not having seen it. (And I’m not talking about people with genuine analytic concern about Elementary.)
What happened, exactly that made this kind of lashing out seem like a good idea? When did it become ‘cool’ to mock people?
Is this a side of fandom that is inevitable? Because it is a side that I find a little disgusting, to be frank.
No, you are not killing people by mocking them and lord knows I’m going to get another barrage of people telling me that I take the internet too seriously, but bear with me. It is this impulse for mockery that is so inexplicable to me. Just the need to prove yourself better than someone else in the most disgusting way possible. It is bullying, frankly, no matter how light hearted you meant it to be.
I mean I’m a heinous bitch (trust me on this one) but even I don’t strike out until I see someone who is deliberately being cruel or unjust.
And honestly this is something about fandom that I wish to study. Does getting this many people together inevitably lead to this kind of mild sadism? Is Lord of the Flies actually right? Are people with privilege always going to bash people with out it? Will people never learn to be ashamed of themselves?
With these questions, I think I might take some time to explore the horrible side of fandom, and try to figure out how it works and why. And though this particular chain of reactions to this gif are only a mild form of unnecessary mocking, I am content to locate these acts firmly on the side of ‘things we should be better than.’
Suggestions on where my study should start are always welcome.
i love London c:
Oh wait, you’re serious?
Let me laugh even harder…
yeah THIS IS ALL ABOUT LONDON , HAHAH
Sherlock Fandom: Obsessive over minute details like Moriarty’s pants to the point where they apparently forget that the show is in fact set in London.
Either that or they’re being dicks for the sake of being dicks.
No I think they actually think that this image isn’t an image of London.
How, utterly bizarre.
Are you seriously not allowed to like an establishing shot of London from the title sequence of a TV show just because you don’t watch that TV show and if you do like it everyone laughs at you
That’s fucking dumb
‘you’re not allowed to appreciate filmography unless you’ve seen every single second of this show you mother fucker’
And I present to you: A fandom which I will never consider myself a part of because they’re psychotic.
