Joan walked over to where Sherlock stood staring at the wanted posters on the precinct board. She stayed a discreet distance away and spoke without looking at him, “They’re staring at us? Why are they staring?”

“I noted the looks. I’ve been observing them and they seem quite pleased about … something.” Sherlock answered, still blankly staring at the wanted poster for one James John, murderer.

“Do you think they know? How could they possibly?” Joan snuck a peek over her shoulder.  Marcus and the Captain were watching them with huge smiles on their faces.

“Perhaps we are just projecting …” Sherlock followed Watson’s gaze and scowled at the expressions on their co-workers’ faces.

Both turned back to the bulletin board. “They know,” Sherlock stated and Joan nodded in agreement.

Fanfiction is the madwoman in mainstream culture’s attic, but the attic won’t contain it forever. Writing and reading fanfiction isn’t just something you do; it’s a way of thinking critically about the media you consume, of being aware of all the implicit assumptions that a canonical work carries with it, and of considering the possibility that those assumptions might not be the only way things have to be.

I just hear the news about Nelsan Ellis and I became so sad at the though of him gone.

I seen him in another shows, but True Blood is one of my favorites shows and his character is one of my favorites.
Nelsan Ellis did an amazing job with Lafayette and send a very nice message to the viewers: be who you want to be, no matter what, even if shit happens, you rise up stronger, cos’ you are the baddest bitch in town.

So with this post I don’t want people to grieve, I want to celebrate his life and encourage you to be whatever you want, look however you want and love yourself and anyone else.
