I cannot wait to move into my own apartment, where the walls are painted white and the only thing that’ll magnify colour will be my collection of rare art work sourced from random artists online. Vanilla candles will be lit in the evening - no form of fake energy seeming through bulbs, and the flickering of the flame will cause the shadows in the corners of the room to dance. My TV will be connected to my laptop and the sounds of reggae and soul will be heard throughout the entire house non stop. The aroma will be a mix of marijuana, washing powder and incense sticks and the house will remain minimal with hardly any furniture, so I’ll always have a clear mind. My new apartment will basically resemble the household my mother raised me in, peace and tranquility.
Spending the day in Minneapolis with my little sister before she moves away to AZ. 🌵 Words can’t even describe how sad I am so see her and her husband and their sweet baby Giddy go. Soaking up the moments with all that we have. Shopping at my favorite locale, pizza for lunch, sweet treats at the candy shop and cozied on the couch chatting and playing with the babes. Cannot even wait to visit them in hot Arizona! 😭 Love you so much @danaetorres. Don’t goooo!
Here’s a picture of the crime wall the morning of John’s wedding.
See in the reflection in the mirror? The crime wall is full of stuff. All the careful planning that Sherlock put into John’s wedding.
Now. Here’s a picture of the crime wall at the beginning of HLV.
It’s all gone! The wedding stuff is all gone! Sherlock (or someone else, but I’m guessing Sherlock, Mrs. Hudson knows better than to touch his stuff) took it down at some point in the month between the wedding and HLV.
Wait. Hold on. Think about that for one minute. Let’s think about what happened on the wedding day for Sherlock. He gets ready for the wedding. Goes to the wedding. The wedding plays out….the way that it did. Sherlock leaves the wedding early, because he simply cannot bear being reminded of the fact that he could have had true love, and instead he let it slip through his fingers.
He goes home. Opens the door, relieved that it’s all finally over with, relieved that he can finally escape. And:
This is literally what it looked like when Sherlock finally made it home after the wedding. He walks in and is assaulted by the wedding again. This time, with the full knowledge of what exactly it is that he had planned. He planned this. He did this to himself.
At some point, Sherlock had to remove every single one of those scraps of paper, pin by pin. Maybe he did it right then, in the dark. Maybe he did it in the cold light of day, early the next morning, after a sleepless night. It doesn’t really matter, does it. The wedding is over now. It’s done with.

so i made this thread on twitter, and of course….it was taken the wrong way. most times i never feel the need to explain my unpopular opinion but i’ve gotten so many “you tweeting like a pick me” and “i’m not waiting on no nigga” tweets at me since last night. i’m slightly irritated. YOU CANNOT BULLY A MAN INTO A RELATIONSHIP. It is not right nor is it fair. alot of women are so pressed for a relationship that they’ll push a man that doesn’t wanna be in one or isn’t quite ready then complain that he isn’t putting in effort. when i say ride the wave. i mean go with the flow. let things happen naturally. stop jumping into shit prematurely out of fear that you just gone be played. because when he told you what was up, you refused to accept and thought “you can change their mind.” no honey. men are NOT entitled to being in a relationship with you if. he. does. not. want. to. be. i don’t care how much trey from round the corner said your pussy make him cum, ion care if you support his dreams, suck his dick upside down, cook like his great great grandma, he’s not obligated to be with you. the sad reality is , relationships are not fairytales. they’re real. and when a man tells you he doesn’t want a relationship right now either he doesnt wanna be with YOU , (and thats ok) or he really just doesn’t want one. relax baby, if you not willing to let nature take its course with the one you’re interested in, then go find a nigga that wants to jump in a relationship right away too and be happy. but don’t lash at me. and don’t say i’m tweeting like a pick me darling when i’ve already been picked. i have a man. and guess what???? i didn’t force him to be mine either.
Both Elle Fanning and Eddie Redmayne have recently come under fire for playing trans characters. Do you think only trans actors should play trans roles?
I think only good actors should play those roles. [Laughing.] I haven’t seen Elle’s movie trailer yet, so I feel ill equipped to discuss it… But I did see the trailer for The Danish Girl and I am so excited. Lili Elbe’s story is so important. I hope they get it right. I don’t know what that even means, but I hope they do. I was in Berlin for the very first time ever this year, and I got to see photos of Hirschfeld’s clinic that was burned down by the Nazis. He had a clinic for human sexuality. Lili got her first gender confirming procedure there.
They were doing this in the ‘20s?!
Isn’t it fascinating to think if it weren’t for fascism, if the Nazis hadn’t burned so many books, Weimar Berlin was a very accepting space for queer people, for trans people. Lili was able to change her gender marker and live as a woman all the way back in the 1920s! And where would we be as a community, even just in terms of medical progress, if all that knowledge hadn’t been suppressed by evil people? So that there’s a movie about trans history, I am so excited.
@robwilson-work designed this amazing logo for the first new podcast from Joseph Fink since Welcome to Night Vale (episode 1 coming March 8). It is a fictional podcast series telling the story of a truck driver (played by Jasika Nicole, @sugarbooty) who travels the United States in search of her wife. Jon Bernstein, @disparition, composed the music. It’s going to be great, and I cannot wait till we put it out into the world.
Alice Isn’t Dead isn’t related to Night Vale other than Joseph is writing it and it is a part of our new podcast network, Night Vale Presents. I don’t know if you know this about Joseph, but he likes writing and storytelling (don’t tell him I told you this), and this is a character and storyline he’s been working on for a while. So if you’re a fan of Night Vale, I’m pretty sure you’ll love this new show, these new characters, this new world.
I have another fiction podcast I’m working on right now, as well (more on that in the coming months), and Joseph and I are looking forward to producing new podcasts in the coming years.
We’ve already begun working with some amazing artists to create original podcasts, doing some cool new things and telling unique stories. We’re so thrilled to make more things for you, internet.
