Dean - Cas chemistry

So, after this post by @margarittet we and @destielonfire were discussing the chemistry and I wanted to note other non-chemistry versions of these two as a direct comparison to the real, acted, directed and scripted chemistry between Dean and Cas.

Dean - Cas: ultimate chemistry. Lust and passion turns to love and devotion and #married by season 12.

Of course Dean - Jimmy: As @margarittet says, zero sexual / romantic chemistry here, especially from Misha, the guy is such a brilliant actor.

Originally posted by isthemachinesinging

Dean - Emmanuel: Dean has all the angst written all over his face throughout the whole episode, knowing it’s not really Cas, he does have some chemistry towards Cas though it’s not ‘I wanna bang you’ its ‘I want Cas back’ (same as some of the later Crazy!Cas). Misha plays Cas with ZERO chemistry with Dean, until he is Cas again. It’s brilliantly done…

Dean - Crazy!Cas: Dean’s face before he realises Cas isn’t himself:

Dean - Crazy!Cas when he realises he isn’t his Cas: Zilch (except for the ‘I just want my Cas back’ looks) until 8x01 when he’s Cas again. 

Cas has zero chemistry with Dean, UNTIL he spends a little time with him, gets to know him again and by the end he offers to go with him even though he said he wouldn’t… it’s not quite falling in love all over again but it does show that in a way, any version of Cas will end up choosing Dean, its so poetic and @margarittet and I are trying desperately to remember as there has to be a story out there with parallel universes, a romantic story throughout the worlds where no matter what version of a person they always fall for the other, I just can’t remember what it is! Anyway, this is probably very relevant for season 13.

Dean - Casifer: Zero chemistry, just pure hatred and resolution.

UNTIL IT’S CAS again….

This needs no explanation. Jensen’s acting is a gift.

Cas - MoC!Dean: As Dean descends into the mark, the chemistry only comes out when Dean is really DEAN and clearly escaping the mark’s influence such as the burger date:

Originally posted by theywearpink

Otherwise Cas is generally pretty cold, it’s like he can feel Dean’s soul is not the same. Jensen generally acts Dean pretty cold towards Cas (and Sam of course) unless Dean is having a real DEAN moment in the middle of it all. 

eg. 9x22: Cas has literally just given up his whole army for Dean, yet although Dean is softer with Cas than even with Sam, he is still nowhere near normal Dean levels of chemistry with Cas here:

Originally posted by theywearpink

Meanwhile Cas is desperately trying to save him but the chemistry is not the same, all the way until 11x01, when it is back over the phone and 11x03 back in person with a bang:

Anyway basically yeah, it’s not just Cockles, it’s on purpose specifically between Dean and Cas and this is no accident.

Harry Styles tweets - and quickly deletes - snaps of Louis Tomlinson
The side-by-side images, which were retweeted by Harry's account, showed his One Direction bandmate sipping iced beverages in pictures apparently taken years apart.

On Monday, he was seen touching down in New York City as he prepared to pressed on with promotional efforts for his newly-released single Sign Of The Times.

But Harry Styles left fans scratching their heads by Tuesday night, when he tweeted - and then quickly deleted - snapshots of Louis Tomlinson, captioned ‘then and now’.

The side-by-side images, which were retweeted by Harry’s account, showed his One Direction bandmate sipping iced beverages in pictures apparently taken years apart.

And as if the point of the post - which was also accompanied by a link - wasn’t confusing enough, it vanished almost as soon as it arrived.

Hordes of followers took screenshots of the fleeting post - and then promptly took to discussing it, with an almost unanimous chorus of fans concluding he was hacked, while other speculated that he may have sent out the tweet in error.

As a scattering of fans popped up to counter both theories, another struck back by writing: 'Do you really think Harry would come out of the blue during SNL rehearsals to tweet a picture of Louis when he never even tweets?’

The 23-year-old heart-throb is currently in the Big Apple, ahead of making an appearance on Saturday Night Live, where he’ll perform his new track.

Harry will be performing Sign Of The Times and another track yet to be revealed on SNL, in an episode presented by comedian and former SNL regular Jimmy Fallon.

The singer - whose band embarked on an extended hiatus in March 2016 - sent social media into meltdown after unveiling his hotly-anticipated debut solo single on Radio 1 last Friday.

One fan enthused: ’@Harry_Styles my baby! I’m super proud of u! That was amazing. I’m feeling like a proud mum love u so so so much! #SignOfTheTimes’.

'Holy s**t @Harry_Styles . Brilliant. #signofthetimes Not what I expected. Loving it. Can’t wait to hear more’, another posted.

Others cooed, @Harry_Styles IM SO PROUD FOR YOU ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤’, 'Harry Styles is the best thing to happen since sliced bread!!!’, and 'my ears have been blessed <33 @Harry_Styles’.

His fellow bandmates Liam Payne and Niall Horan also took to Twitter to congratulate Harry on the track.

New dad Liam wrote on Twitter 'proud of you H. Glad you’re getting to do your own thing’, while Niall added: 'Love it H.’

However, there are concerns that Harry could miss out on the number one spot, as a number of fans could not listen to the single on streaming service Spotify due to a 'glitch’.  

There are loads of things I’d change, I’d change all my mistakes but that would be exhausting so let me just choose one mistake, I’ll choose one mistake because it just rankles me to this day that I got this wrong. There’s a scene at the end of a season five episode, called Flesh and Stone, where Amy comes on to the Doctor. It’s a very good idea for a scene, it’s a very good idea because she’s been through this traumatic experience and she doesn’t quite know who or what the Doctor is and she actually doesn’t quite know what his interest is and there’s a brilliant scene to be written there and I entirely avoided writing it. I played it for laughs and it was so wrong.

Steven Moffat

Very interesting to have some sort of retrospective look on that scene seeing as it’s one that has always made me (and many other fans I know) fairly uncomfortable. Not sure I entirely agree with everything he says but it’s nice to see him acknowledge that it was a bad move to try and put it in a humourous context.

GoT S07E06 Thoughts

So I don’t know if this is late or early considering technically the episode doesn’t air till Sunday, but whatever, here we go: 

There was only one awesome thing about this episode, which was anything to do with the Night King and the Wight Dragon. Everything else was a complete departure from all we’ve come to learn about these characters, but that aside, let me try to understand it as best as I can.

We start the episode on Jon and the rest of the A Team trudging along and making fun of Gendry. I actually really liked all these scenes because the male bonding was done well, the dialogue was funny and the chemistry between these characters was believable. I mean I didn’t know I needed a Tormund x Sandor best friendship till that episode, especially when they begin talking about Brienne. Mr Tormund “I want to make babies with her” Giantsbane. It was brilliant, needless to say. 

What’s not so brilliant but a great moment of foreshadowing was Tormund’s conversation with Jon. He essentially tells Jon that although Mance Rayder was a great man, his pride got a lot of people killed, echoing Jon’s own words to the man: 

“"Isn’t their survival more important than your pride?”

And of course Dani’s words to Jon in the Cave of Invisible Chemistry. 

The problem I have with this is that it comes from Tormund, a wildling man whose pride is as much as a defining factor as his ginger beard. But whatever, I see what they’re trying to do here. They’re trying to justify what happens later because if Tormund can understand the dire need for Dani’s help over his own pride then Jon should too, and he does, of course, as we later find out. 

Here’s the thing though. I am still firmly of the camp that it’s all a ruse, and this is the moment Jon realises he might have to bend to Dani’s will for her alliance. He doesn’t want to and he knows fully well that the Northern houses will not accept her as their queen in any capacity, but all he cares about is his people’s survival through the Long Night. He’s willing to lose his kingdom for their safety. And this thought becomes even more concrete in Jon’s mind the moment Dani arrives to save his dumb ass with her three dragons. The look of awe on his face as those dragons rain hellfire on the wights is indicative of this because up until that point, he’s had a very abstract understanding of what these dragons are capable of and how they can help him. Seeing it in person, seeing them turn a hopeless situation into a victory, Jon fully understands now that the only way to survive is for Dani to fight with them with her dragons.

Unpopular opinion about HTGAWM

Unpopular opinion but I actually liked the finale????

Like, I totally and completely understand where everyone’s anger and disappointment is coming from, but I thought that all in all, it was a good way to end season 3 and it leaves a lot of new potential storylines for season 4.

Now, here are some things I wanted to talk about:

[[SPOILERS AHEAD, OBVIOUSLY]]

1. Wes’ death:

Yes, I am pissed that they ACTUALLY killed off Wes. I was pretty damn sure that the body being “moved” was just an excuse to cover up for the fact that THERE WAS NO BODY because HE DIDN’T ACTUALLY DIE. I thought that that was going to be the big plot twist/OMG moment. I was latching onto the possibility that maybe, just maybe, he faked his own death with the help of whomever he called on the phone in the cab that night. I was wrong. HOWEVER… I get WHY the writers did that. Killing off, for example, Frank simply would NOT have had the same emotional response from the audience and wouldn’t have really opened up any new and exciting storylines to explore in the future either. Same thing with killing off Nate. (It seems that the majority of the fandom is kind of indifferent about his character, so the consequences of his death would have been lackluster for the most part – other than some inevitable scenes of Annalise grieving). Killing off Simon (the annoying new guy) would have just been plain dumb and a total cop out. As sad as it is, Wes’ death is opening the door to a lot of new storylines. Killing off Connor, Laurel, Michaela, etc. without knowing enough of their respective backstories first would have been stupid and unfair. At least with Wes, we’ve already spent 2+ seasons exploring his backstory in great, great depth. Most of the main storylines on the show revolved around him. Now his arc has come to an end and it has undoubtedly impacted every. single. character. The fact that it was overwhelming tragic continues to show what we all already know about HTGAWM: it’s one of the REALEST shows out there in terms of depicting everyday life and social issues. HTGAWM is woke af. There’s no denying that. Life is tragic. Did they really have to kill off Wes? No, of course not. But did really have to make Annalise be raped repeatedly by her uncle when she was just a little girl? What about Bonnie? No, right? And did they really have to make Annalise be in a car accident that caused her to lose her unborn child, thus traumatizing her for the rest of her life? Nope. But you know what? These things happen in real life and not a lot of shows have the BALLS to depict that on screen. HTGAWM does. Wes’ death is so powerful precisely because of how UNFAIR it was. I’m not justifying it. I’m just saying it makes for powerful storytelling. Again, how many of you would have cried if it had been Frank or Nate? Likely, not many. Would Frank dying have started a discussion about the kind of crap POC experience everyday? That was the point. In conclusion, at least Wes’ character was not rushed, his death was premature for the character but not for the story, and at least now we can focus on Laurel, Michaela, Connor, Oliver and put the spotlight on their backstories more.

2. Annalise throwing Wes under the bus

Idk why so many people were upset about this. This is literally what Annalise has been doing since day 1. She’s a brilliant character but has ALWAYS been morally questionable. Season 2 Episode 4, anyone?? That was the EPITOME of Annalise’s dubious morality! Do you guys remember what Michaela said to her after they framed Nate in season 1? “How are we supposed to be okay with this? He’s innocent. And he’s Black.” Here’s the thing: Annalise framed an INNOCENT Nate for Sam’s murder. And you know what? After the framing served its purpose (protecting Wes and the others), she got him off about four episodes later with Eve’s help. She then framed an INNOCENT Catherine Hapstall for Sinclair’s murder AND her own shooting/attempted murder (at the hands of Wes, might I add). And you know what? She took the blame away from Catherine literally in the next episode. Right now, Annalise has pinned Rebecca’s murder on Wes and has also outed Wes as Sam’s killer (which, remember, is NOT a lie… Like Bonnie said, Wes IS a murderer) Why did Annalise do that? Well, to prevent them all (herself, Nate, Bonnie, Michaela, Connor – WHO WAS KIDNAPPED AT THE TIME, Laurel, Oliver, Asher, Frank) from going to jail! And you know what?? I’m willing to bet that next season she’ll think of something to restore his good name and image (just like she did with Nate and Catherine) AND get back at Denver. She just couldn’t do it all at once. Poor woman needed a break after the LITERAL HELL she’s been through. She just needed an impromptu solution asap.

3. Wes’ killer being Laurel’s dad

Not random at all, seeing as how WE DON’T EVEN KNOW THE MOTIVE YET. If when we finally find out his motive and it turns out to be lame and stupid, THEN we should complain!! NOT NOW!!! In season 1, we didn’t know WHY Frank was the one who murdered Lila. It seemed random as fuck. Then in season 2, we find out why and it was such a well-written and complex backstory that even managed to involve a number of characters (Sam. Annalise, Eve, Wes, the Mahoneys, etc.) Pete Nowalk already confirmed that we’ll be finding out more about Laurel’s family and backstory next season so CHILL. (Side note: My personal theory is that Annalise hired Laurel’s dad to murder Frank – since the first hit man she hired failed – and the guy that Laurel’s dad hired messed up and killed Wes instead. That would explain Frank saying to Annalise, “I know it should have been me.” That would also make Laurel’s “It should have been YOU” to Frank at the hospital technically be considered foreshadowing/a clue/hint).

4. Laurel’s and Oliver’s offensive comments

Laurel’s telling Connor to kill himself was NOT OKAY. Oliver assuming Laurel’s dad worked for a drug cartel because he’s Mexican is NOT OKAY. You know what else is not okay? The way Annalise treats Bonnie, Annalise also telling Frank he should kill himself just a few episodes back, Connor telling Laurel she should get an abortion and that it was good that Wes died, etc. These aren’t writer flaws. They are CHARACTER FLAWS. It is BELIEVABLE that after all the traumatizing shit these people have gone through, that once in a while, a darker and uglier side of them comes out. A side that will make them go, “I’m sorry… That wasn’t me…” later. That makes sense to me. Is it okay? No, of course it’s not okay. But it’s believable. They are human beings completely capable of fucking up and unintentionally hurting others, especially when they’re panicking, when they’re in the middle of a crisis, and after all this life-changing insanity that’s ruined their lives and screwed them over and has likely permanently damaged them and, let’s be real, has probably given them suicidal thoughts, too. 

Let’s remember that HTGAWM continues to be one of the most diverse shows out there, with an abundance of POC and LGBT+ actors and characters, and that it also shines light on a variety of pressing social issues. That’s it, y’all. That’s all I wanted to say.

So… see you all in season 4.

(Sorry if there are typos in this post. I don’t feel like proofreading).

We all expected that Mary killed Jessica - no OMGs there at all. The more shocking part is that yes, this actually was Mary in the house. Some would say that’s not shocking, but I still think it is, because I can’t believe they had Mary’s storyline perfected back then in season 4. But on top of that, what Mary was doing is shocking too. She was trying to get Peter’s pills, to frame him for Jessica’s murder which she was about to commit. Peter looked guilty as hell in 5A for killing Jessica - I’m kicking myself for not thinking that he was being framed by the person that was snooping around in his house the episode before Jessica’s death. That is truly brilliant. I’m so happy right now with this answer. This is a good mystery. 

So about M. Night Shaym-Aliens

People have probably thought about this plenty and my two cents aren’t really needed at this point. But I was late to the Rick and Morty fandom, and I didn’t really see people talking about it, so I want to talk about Rick’s behavior in the simulation.

By the end of the episode, Rick reveals that he knew he was in a simulation alll aloong. Obviously. And then we’re expected to think he knew that Morty was a simulation alll alooong, or else he wouldn’t be giving Morty instructions to mix chemicals that would blow them up. So are we expected to believe his freak out after the credits is for nothing?

Naw, I think Rick really wasn’t sure at first if Morty was a part of the simulation. He tried to dismiss Morty as part of the simulation at first (”Sure buddy, yeah sure. Brilliant. Very convincing.” “Ooh and responsive too. In real time.”) But I think, when he gets Morty in the shower and sees that he has genitalia, he really does believe that this is his Morty.

Until:

It makes no sense that the little processors would be here when the simulation shuts down. This is the part where Rick realizes that he’s still in a simulation, and Morty is part of it. And it makes sense why they could act so out of character just before this.

And that part is actually pretty sad on second viewings. When I first watched this episode, I thought it was Rick who was fake at this part.

“Don’t worry about it, Morty. There’s plenty of ‘em ya little goof ball.”

Boy look how totally “out of character” Rick seems here!!!

“Nothing wrong with just a little bit of horse play now and then, little fella.” Boy Rick, you sure seem SUSPICIOUSLY NICE HERE!

So where I’m going with this: Rick only seemed out of character at this point because fake-Morty was responding to Rick positively. What this part actually shows is HOW RICK WANTS HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH MORTY TO BE!! Real Morty woulda complained that Rick was wasting escaping time getting those processors (and who could blame him?) And Rick would have responded out of anger because Rick doesn’t deal with Morty well. Or people in general.

This scene is so sad because this is how Rick and Morty’s relationship could be if Rick wasn’t so self-destructive and self-centered! But we’ve seen how Rick disconnects from people (leaving his family) and how hard he falls when relationships don’t work (look at Auto-Erotic Assimilation). It’s why he’s so quick to be angry at Morty. Which is part of why Morty is quick to argue back.

Look, we know how freaked the fuck out Rick gets when he’s uncertain (A Rickle in Time; Total Rickall). That’s why he distances himself. Because dealing with people is like “a horse trying to fix a merry-go-round” as he put it. And that’s why he has a hard time bonding with Morty. And that’s why Rick freaks out about Morty being a simulation during the credits (see 2nd pic again).

So what was the point of this post? I just want people to know how sad it was that Rick’s most out of character moment was probably how he wants to be deep down. But Rick sabotages himself and his relationships. Just something to think about.

Meeting Dirk, Todd, Farah and the Rowdy Three for the first time in the episode 1 script (x)

I’ve been thinking about it for a while, and I think I should say this once and for all. I think the episode was brilliant. One of the best so far.

Harry, Alan, Matt and Will were absolutely brilliant and the rest of the cast as well. I’m thrilled that Magnus is getting his own storyline (about damn time!), even though it means we had to watch him go through hell and get tortured by the Clave. It isn’t about what that last scene entailed.

It was in character for Magnus to keep quiet and for Alec not to touch him, because he doesn’t touch the people he’s hurt, not as long as he hasn’t found a way to make things right, even if it means blowing the very ground he stands on. He is blaming himself, so his reaction makes complete sense and so does Magnus’.

My problem is with the emotional balance of the episode, which that last scene made non existent. Because 1) it was too short, and 2) we didn’t get to see Magnus’ immediate reaction once he was back in his body (except for tackling Valentine which is just a proof that he is a hero but we already knew that). We should have seen that silence for what it was, Magnus’ way of coping, and what it is meant to be, a hint at what awaits us for the rest of 2B. Instead, the scene was cut off.

It’s not about Malec. It’s about Magnus and the attention he deserves after the emotional and physical torture he went through. Which is more than 20 seconds and the attention drifting back to Clary’s much less pressing issues with Sebastard asking her out (ew) and yet another unnecessary scene with Simon. I’d have rather had 15 more seconds of silence from Magnus, enough time for us to fully grasp the impact it had on him.

There are seven main characters, and when you write an episode centered on one of them, you need to go to the very end of it, and not sideline it to bring back the focus on another one. Jace discovering his origins and Magnus going through what he did would have made for a rich enough episode without adding the Climon drama and that ridiculous scene with Sebastard at the end. That could have waited for the next episode.

Magnus’ traumatic experience should have had the attention it deserved until the very end.

anonymous asked:

In 8X1 when Dean tells Sam that Cas is dead, Sam tells him "I'm sorry" but it does not sound like normal condolences when a friend dies, it sounds more profound than that. Just puttining it out there 😉

Yep… like the time Sam accidentally put on a love song all about missing someone who left right after Cas died in season 7 and apologised kindly and with compassion rather than joking or being confused when Dean seems upset.

Or the fact that every time they have to contact Cas it’s Dean who does it, it’s now just agiven that it’s weird if Sam calls Cas by season 11. 

That Sam doesn’t even speak to Cas before he leaves in season 9 (I’m not saying he doesn’t care, it’s just set up like that, but they’re super cute bros in 9x09 and it warms my heart, while Dean and Cas are disgustingly flirty as well as Dean trying to keep his distance and failing) or that Sam and Cas barely have any moments alone and when they do its pretty much all about Dean (in the Gadreel extraction episode they still end up talking about Dean, in s10 they basically only interact to talk about Dean and both know they can rely on the other to do anything to save him - I mean brother in law trope 101!).

Dean is the one who is most upset by Cas nearly dying while Sam is upset of course but focuses on Wally’s actual death in 12x14, that Mary turns to Dean every time Cas comes up in conversation or says something meaningful to them as a group (albeit whilst starring at Dean).

Or all the times Dean worries about Cas and Sam tells him he will be ok or when Dean is upset and Sam consoles Dean like a brother about his brother in law and reacts like Dean had lost his partner when Cas is gone or missing…. I think I made a whole post just about that, it’s so brilliant, how Sam is framed as the supportive brother and brother in law to their relationship through these small little moments in the bunker, in the open or close of the MotW episodes especially throughout season 11 and 12… 

It’s basically 2 seasons of opening and closing episodes with Dean being like “But what about CAS?! I’m worried about CAS” and Sam saying “we’ll get him back I promise! He’ll be ok!”

7x01, 7x02, 8x01, 8x07, 8x22, 11x15, 11x17, 11x19, 12x04, 12x15, 12x17, 12x18, 12x19, 12x20, 12x22, 12x23… you know, just off the top of my head…

But you know…

Ok (so I watched The Scene..thanks @theleftpill). So Sherlock kinda deflates from his deductions the moment he sees the name on the coffin lid.

He knew who it was for because, as it was pointed out when the episode aired, the dead dont write on their own coffins, its the living who do it in the memory of the dead. Those were the words that would’ve been on Molly’s coffin. 

This again emphasizes what I had posted some days back; that it wasnt Sherlock realising that he loved Molly, it was the acknowledgement and public acceptance of the fact that did him in.

Eurus knew a lot about Sherlock, but didn’t understand how he functioned in order to feel those things. She didnt try to learn about obvious facts about her brother, but what those facts meant emotionally! What was the impact, the consequence, the reasoning, the reaction due to those facts.

I am going to HC that Eurus knew he loved Molly, but couldn’t understand how or what that entailed.

Thats why that entire scene. So we now have it from a person with beyond-Newtonian brilliance…Sherlock loved Molly. Yep.

OKAY. 

But the fate of the team depends on Jemma reuniting with Fitz. Because yes, Daisy’s in there too and will do her own badass duties, and she’ll be amazing, and yes. But if there’s anyone in the real world who’s going to reach anyone in the Framework and snap them out of it, it’s going to be Jemma Simmons and Leopold Fitz. Their connection is too deep. The fate of S.H.I.E.L.D. depends on the romantic entanglement of these two characters. 

So just… level with me. Regardless of the scenes they do or don’t get. Regardless of the kisses they do or don’t get. Regardless of seeing Fitz with another woman. Regardless of… well. I literally have no clue about the Jemma being dead thing… but anyway…

Look. It could take one episode for Jemma to find him (or like. Be alive.), or it could take five. 

But all I know is Jed Whedon chose to heavily feature FitzSimmons tonight in his first ever written and directed episode. Jed and Maurissa chose to feature Elizabeth Henstridge in a bottle episode last season. 

Daisy said what the writers wanted us to know tonight. FitzSimmons are the real deal, they are endgame, and the writers never stopped caring about them. 

I truly believe that. 

So let’s just enjoy this brilliant arc together. Let’s see how the team finds each other. 

And let’s be forever grateful that the heart of the show is and always be our favorite science duo. Regardless of the screen time, scenes, etc. they’ve been given.

And enjoy the fucking ride. 

Because they sent Fitz in with the rest of the team in an alternate universe. 

And Jemma is going to fight tooth and nail to get him back. 

Of that we can all agree. 

Update: Sherlolly: A Male Newbie’s Perspective.

So…the long awaited Sherlolly: A Male Newbie’s Perspective, is on it’s way. Promise!! I had no idea my son and his friend’s comments would be received with so much interest. Live and learn, right? Truth be told, their response to His Last Vow wasn’t nearly as interesting as their previous thoughts. In my humble opinion. They watched with rapt attention, and offered - quite vocally - their thoughts on the overall episode, which was far more serious than TEH and TSoT. I’ll finish it up over the weekend.

In the meantime, for those who asked, and because it’s still fresh in my mind – here’s a few conversations that took place amongst my daughter and sister, after The Final Problem. Parts of the conversations are slightly paraphrased, although I did have a chat record with @swjmart about those conversations immediately afterward, while they were fresh in my memory.

I feel a bit silly posting this, but given all the crap Sherlollians have put up with over the years, I wanna add to this ship and see it turn into an Arc. Just sayin’.

I’ll start with my sister, who is the quintessential casual viewer. She didn’t start watching Sherlock until this past autumn, when she binged on Netflix. Lucky girl – she did not put herself through an agonizing three year hiatus. Whether she realizes it or not – she digs Sherlolly! Yay!


It all started with a late morning phone call….


Sister (which will be referred to by ’S’): So, did you watch Sherlock?

Me: Surely you jest.

S: Just thought I’d ask. Did you like it?

Me: Of course. You?

S – Oh gosh yes! T (her hubby), sat on the edge of his seat the whole time, even covered his face in a few places.

Me: God, he’s such a pussy.

S: What?

Me: Never-mind. So, what’d ya think.

S: It was excellent – I loved the whole season, but wish there was more than three episodes.

Me: Welcome to fandom.

S: Pardon?

Me: Nothing. Continue.

S: Can you even imagine having a sister that brilliant and insane? That was so heartbreaking. Really, T almost cried.

Me:  I know, completely mind-blowing, although there were clues in previous episodes that some shit went down. (silently begging her to get to the good part about Molly and Sherlock saying I love you, but not wanting to be overly obvious.)

S: I wish you’d stop swearing. (sister does not swear ~le sigh~)

Me: Do you know that recent studies showed people who swear —

S: Whatever, P. Those clues never indicated a child was murdered.

Me: I know, but even though it was ‘technically’ murder, I don’t think that was the intention of five year old Eurus. She wanted her brother to play.

Me: Hmmm. Weren’t you even a bit disappointed that nothing was said or shown about Victor Trevor’s family, or any investigation? (I’m not being serious, of course, just baiting for opinion)

S: No, it’s not that kind of show. It’s not CSI Sherlock.

(now I get to go in for what I really want to know!)

Me: But there were so many things left unresolved!

S: Like what?

Me: What do you mean 'like what?’ I thought you said you watched.

S: T and I thought the season finale was great – there was nothing left unresolved. I don’t know if they’re going to make another season, because all the actors are so in demand, but if not – I don’t know how it could have ended more perfectly. The only thing I’m really sad about is Mary dying. She was such an interesting character and I liked her a lot.

Me: You didn’t get put off that she shot Sherlock? At one point I found it very hard to believe how easily she was forgiven.

S: Of course shooting the protagonist was dramatic, but he didn’t mind, why should you?

Me: What?

S: You do know these are fictional characters, right?

Me: Don’t be ridiculous.

S: These characters are very dark and most of the time suicidal. Sherlock was on drugs probably all of season three and most of season 4, so of course he didn’t have a problem forgiving Mary. He probably admired her for it. They’re fun to watch, but you can’t think of them as normal – they’re not. Except for Molly. She is the only relatable character. I think she’s T’s favorite part of the show. It’s just too bad they didn’t give her more.

Me: Agree. But…but what about the Molly / Sherlock phone call dealio? I mean, what happened there? The only thing we got after that was a 2 second montage of Molly walking into Baker St.

S: So?

Me: So?! What happened? One minute she’s crying, Sherlock’s smashing a coffin and then she’s all smiles. WTF?

S: They’re not going to show that. I thought you preferred British television over American? British television is always more subtle.

Me: I know, but still – they could have given something more than a stupid montage.

S: They got married. That wasn’t hard to figure out.

Me: What? LOL!

S: Molly has always loved him, anyone who watched the show could see that. Sherlock is probably the most emotionally constipated fictional character ever written - Spock doesn’t count because he’s Vulcan - and he finally realized he loves her too. Probably always has. They’ve been building this up from the beginning. Didn’t you ever pay attention to all the stuff he pulled? Sabotaging her date before he knew that guy was his enemy? He told her to give up on relationships. It’s not like he was joking, although it was funny. He’s literal about that stuff. He didn’t want her to date because he couldn’t cope, it was about him, not her. T really loved that part – wished he would have thought about it when he was trying to date me. Then there’s Sherlock’s temper tantrums, and getting her to do things he could do himself. It’s typical stuff men do when they’re jealous or stupid. They think they’re being smart, like no one can see through all their crap.

Me: Looking at it that way, he probably broke up her engagement, too.

S: Oh, you know he did. T called it right away. What episode was that, where he told her how important she was and basically had eye sex with her. If it had been any other woman they probably would have burst out laughing. What a guy move.

Me: Ummm, the one where he came back, that one? And, btw, I wouldn’t have laughed if Benedict Cumberbatch was staring into my eyes.

(okay, this is literally the most surreal convo I’ve ever had with my sister. I had. no. idea. she even thought about stuff like this.)

S: Well, he’s not Benedict Cumberbatch, he’s Sherlock, lol! Not real life, remember? And, yes, that’s the episode. After that scene T said, 'her engagement just ended.’ Thought it was a smooth move. I’m telling you, this is typical guy stuff.

Me: He probably caused her to doubt herself.

S: It doesn’t matter, it wouldn’t have lasted anyway. It was over when Sherlock came back.

Me: So, why do you think they got married?

S: How old is Sherlock and these guys? Mid to late 30’s? What do you think he’s going to do? Start dating? He’s not going to do that. He can barely cope with what he does feel and Molly is patient and independent enough to be his partner and she’s not needy. Which is good because he is.

Me: So you didn’t see her as weak with unrequited love?

S: Where would you get that idea? Who cares if she’s loved him the whole time. It’s not like she sat around waiting for him to do something about it. She has life and must have felt he cared too, otherwise she wouldn’t have stuck around. She’s not one of our girlfriends who has no self-will or independent thought, and lives in a constant state of angst because her boyfriend or husband is horrible and we have to constantly tell her to leave. It’s not real life. Besides, Molly is sane and helps him connect to people and the world, like John does. Speaking of which, wasn’t it the episode before this one where John gave Sherlock that big speech about how a relationship would make him complete?

Me: Yep, he did. But, he was talking about Irene Adler.

S: Oh, she doesn’t matter.

Me: No?

S: He doesn’t love her. She’s every guy’s fantasy, it’s not real. T still believes Drew Barrymore will adore him if they ever met. Keep dreaming, big guy. Anyway, the writer’s set up some big dramatic relationship thing with John’s speech. So, you knew something was going to happen between Sherlock and Molly.

Me: It’s called foreshadowing.

S: Sherlock is completely ignorant about how to do relationships and love. He trusts Molly with his feelings and heart – she kept his secret for two years about being dead - and now that he knows how much he loves her, why would he let her go? He wouldn’t do that. The only way to keep her around is to marry her. At least that’s what I think. Or, maybe they live together forever…although if I were Molly he’d have to come to my place because it’s so much nicer and she can make him leave when he’s annoying or too clingy. Besides, his place is too dangerous and it’s more like an office than a home.

Me: I just read an interview this morning from Steven Moffat, the show’s creator and writer, who said that Molly was wounded by what happened, but Sherlock was devastated. He went on to say Sherlock apologized, Molly called him a 'bastard’ and they got over it. Then he added that Molly probably had a drink and shagged someone. What the hell, right?

S: That doesn’t sound like the character I saw, but then you probably shouldn’t take stuff like this so literally. I’m sure Sherlock apologized and you could see he was devastated. She almost died – I mean, I was holding my breath and wondering if they were going to kill her. Honestly, that was the most heart-pounding part of the whole episode. Of course he was devastated, but Molly was really hurt. She thought he was making fun of her and they both thought that whatever they did have together was over at the end of that scene. Maybe what the writer is saying is that they had sex together? That would make more sense after something this horrific. Wouldn’t you? I know it’s not real life, but if you were Sherlock and realized you loved someone and that person almost died, those emotions are powerful, overwhelming and mess with your mind. They probably had sex first and then he told her what happened. You know, like couples have sex after they argue.

Me: I didn’t realize you were such a romantic.

S: The whole show is a romance, with some mysteries thrown in. It’s not Hollywood, it’s very subtle. I thought you minored in English composition and literature? You should know this stuff.

Me: I do, but just thought I’d get your take. Hey, let me ask you one more thing…there’s this idea that John moved back into Baker St.

S: Why would he do that?

Me: Probably because he did that in the books, only it was very different because they (S / J) were much older and Mary had already been dead for a long time. Of course John didn’t have a kid in the books, at least not that anyone knew of. Although, I think there’s some pastiches that suggest, or give him, a child.

S: I can’t think why that character would do something so dumb and irresponsible. He’s smarter than that. Baker St isn’t safe for a baby and why would he or Sherlock want a baby around all the time?  It’s Sherlock’s office with a bedroom. His kitchen is contaminated and he keeps body parts around. They meet clients and really dangerous people come there. Plus, John has his own house. If he did anything, maybe he should experience what single mother’s go through and have to take care of his child after working all day and saying 'no’ to things because he has to put his child first. I understand people helping out right after Mary died. Mom had all kinds of help after our dad died, remember? But, this isn’t RL and he and Sherlock have their 'the game is on’ thing, so the baby is going to be sent to be with others.

*** Pretty much the end of of our convo, unless someone wants to hear about how we planned an outing at Sephora and met for lunch…. Probably not, right?


Phone call from daughter, who is known as 'K’ – another casual viewer.


K: So, did you watch?

Me: Of course. Watching it again, to be honest. What did you think? Just give me the Molly / Sherlock low down.

K: Wow, he really lost his shit, didn’t he?

Me: Yup.

K: I honestly thought they were going to kill Molly.

Me: I was a bit worried too. So, what do you think ended up happening between them? We were only given a few seconds.

K: They got married or living together.

Me: Have you been talking with your aunt?

K: No, why?

Me: Because she said the same thing.

K: It’s the only thing that makes sense.

Me: Why do people keep saying that?

K: What else is Sherlock gonna to do? He could barely do stuff without her before he knew he loved her, and now that he knows, it’s not like he’d let her disappear.

Me: Wow, I guess something’s just aren’t that obvious to me. (just kidding, of course)

K: Yeah, well, you don’t watch much television, so maybe you don’t notice stuff.

Me: You don’t think they’d date for a while, that sort of thing?

K: Why? Like Mike (her boyfriend) said – Sherlock just got played by two women.

Me: I don’t understand.

K: The evil sister set up the test for Sherlock to get Molly to say I Love You, right?

Me: Yeah.

K: But, that’s not what it was about. Molly wouldn’t say it until he said it first, because she thought he was playing a game and making fun of her. But, his sister had been watching Molly and maybe watching Sherlock too and knew Molly loved him but would never say 'I love you’ unless Sherlock said it first. But, Sherlock is thinking he just has to get Molly to say it, when the real game was about getting him to say it. But, he’s not going to say it, he won’t even consider it, because he’s an emotional dwarf. So, the only way to get him to say it was knowing Molly wouldn’t, thereby applying the appropriate pressure needed for him to grow the fuck up and get some balls. Well, that’s what Mike said, but I agree. Molly didn’t know she was being played, but his theory still works.

Me: So, his sister played Dolly Levi.

K: No, she’s just bat-shit, fucking crazy and didn’t care. She wanted the thrill of the ride. She doesn’t understand emotional attachment

Me: But, why married?

K: Maybe not married, but they’re definitely living together in a committed relationship for life. Sherlock isn’t capable of anything less. I mean, he could be, he is smart, but I doubt it. God, mom, he railroads her all the time. He would literally implode if she went off and found someone else. I mean, think about the few genius people you know. They have no idea how to do shit and need normal people to help them.

Me: I don’t think he’s that bad off.

K: Maybe not, but he was shooting up all last season because he couldn’t cope with the changes with his friends. John got married, Molly was engaged. He was able to be part of John’s life, but not Molly’s. And he spent most of this season high as a kite. He almost overdosed on the jet when they shipped him off for killing that guy.

Me: Part of that was because Mary asked him to save John.

K: Yeah, but not the jet part. He doesn’t cope with loss and there were other ways to help John. He was dying, mom – headed toward renal failure. Maybe now that he has those memories about his sister, he’ll be able to do better and won’t have the need to self-anesthesize. Plus, he finally understands he loves Molly, like really loves her and being with her helps him stay grounded – she keeps him centered. It takes a village to raise Sherlock.

Me: True dat. So the coffin part was pretty intense.

K: It was. But, he was scared, emotionally vulnerable and couldn’t manage what he was feeling. He had to vent and the coffin was handy. I also think he realized how much he’s hurt Molly. Not just the phone call, but all the other stuff he’s done. She couldn’t trust him and almost died because of it. He got to see what he caused, the consequences of his bullshit. He didn’t know that. He never connected the emotional dots about why she couldn’t say 'I love you’. So, yes, I think he married her and probably will never, ever do another thing to cause her any doubt. His life is too dangerous to put his bullshit on her, leaving her not knowing when he’s being a douche and doing his fakey mcfakerson shit, or being serious. And, why wouldn’t Molly want marriage or a committed life with him? She’s been on the ride since the beginning and it’s better for both of them to be on the same page. They’re both kinda lost without the other.

Me: Right on. So, the I love you was real?

K: Later, mom.

So, there ya have it. Two perspectives from non-fandom people. I love Sherlollians, even the ones who don’t know they’re one. : )

anonymous asked:

I love that scene when Tony tries to take a nap in armour and Steve panics, especially how his facial expression and voice change from openly worried to stoic as soon as IM opens his eyes like, Cap doesn't want him to know how much he worries for him

THANK YOU FOR BRINGING UP THIS SCENE BECAUSE IT’S ONE OF MY FAVORITES TOO AND I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR AN EXCUSE TO SCREENSHOT IT

three main reasons why i love this scene so much:

  1. there was absolutely no purpose to this scene at all. The AA writers could have EASILY just had Tony tinkering with a project when Steve brought Kamala and Inferno into the workshop. In fact, if you watch the episode again, this above moment seems so incongruous that it’s as if the AA writers were halfway through drafting the episode before they realized “oh man……we haven’t met our stovetuba quota for this ep yet……quick, have steve grab tony by the shoulders or something…..yes……brilliant”
  2. FRIDAY definitely ships it. Think about it this way: if she has the power to override Tony’s armor, she most likely has access to his biometrics, especially since Tony is actually wearing the suit. She knew he was okay and had just fallen asleep. But I guess she saw Steve enter the room and decided she wanted to see her two favorite idiots in action again. Nice.
  3. Kamala and Inferno watched this entire exchange happen. As if this episode didn’t have enough of a “supercouple adopts superkids” vibe already………I bet this was the moment that Kamala realized all the fanfiction she had ever read about Steve and Tony were true.

ALRIGHT MOTHERFUCKERS I TALKED TO MY OLD ROOMMATES TODAY AND I’VE HAD 6 SHOTS IN THE LAST 10 MINUTES LET’S FUCKING DO THIS SHIT!

So we decided that the next story I should tell should be one where I’m the asshole so we decided the story I’m going to tell is really the first story from this apartment and guys I am estatic because this is one of my favorites

Okay so since like a yeaqr before we moved in together Kyle was dating this girl Grace. Almost 4 years later they’re still dating it’s fucking cute as FUCK. Grace is fucking awesome we all love her also she is fucking fine like this girl probably could model. She also had a best friend from high school who I’m going to call Gary because that sounds like a sufficiently douchey name for this asshat Gary was a fuck like a whispy little piece of shit noone of us like Gary except Grace because apartently when Grace was in high school Grace was not fine and Gary was one of her only friends.

The problem with this was that Grace could not see how incredibly desperately in love Gary was with her and just thought they were friends and it was really awkward for Gary because she would do sloppy makeouts with Kyle in front of him it was pretty great for the rest of us poor Grace never believed us when we told her how crazy Gary was well she believed us after this shit.

Anyways it’s the second week we’ve been in this apartment Grace’s old lease ended at the end of our first week and her new lease didn’t start until the start of our third week so she had a week of nowhere to live so she was staying with us in Kyle’s room they were pretty happy with it and also very loud it set a precident that should not have been set sxo early anyways one day we’re all out doing errands and Grace is home and Gary comes over to see his bff for totally non scummy reasons and they’re aparently hanging out in our living room watching TV when Grace gets a phone call maybe idk she goes into the other room is the point and this is hwen Gary decides to put his master plan to finally win Grace’s heart into motion.

You see, while Gary had seen Grace date other guys in the past, he had always been confident that they would not last together, and that he would always bee therewhen it ended to try to sweep her off her feet and make tender, probably disappointing nerd love to her. While this never worked, he was confident it was only a matter of time. However, Kyle genuinely loves Grace, and always has, so there is a fear in Gary’s mind that the breakup that will get him with the girl of his dreams might not come, so he has become desperate.

So Gary decided to pull a play out of the playbook of a famous character from How I Met Your Mother. Not Barney, that would have required skill, game, and a basic understanding of how women think. No, he decides to try Mitch’s play. If you don’t remember who Mitch is, don’t feel bad, he’s only in like two episodes. He’s better known as the Naked Man.

That’s right. He pulled that move.

So Gary’s buck ass naked in our living room, BUT LITTLE DID GARY KNOW that while he was setting his brilliant plan into motion, I was walking into the aparmetn with my fuck buddy Jane, and we turn the corner into the living room to find Gary fucking CAPTAIN MORGANING ON OUR COFFEE TABLE. He is FULLY ERECT and we made eye contact.

I was told that we only stared at each other for like 10 seconds before I spoke but it felt like 10 years.

“What.”

As I say this, Grace walks back into the room and I swear to god the sound she made she has never replicated it was like a mix between a shriek, a laugh, and a gasp it was awesome so she and Jane gtfo because they want nothihng to do with this and I’ve finally realized how insane all this is so I’m laughing my ass off and trying to tell Gary to put his pants back on and leave and he’s getting all pissed off because the love of his life ran away from his dick so he’s acting like a pissant I fucking love that word btw and he starts toward the hallto go confront Grace and I stop him because he’s not walking through our apartment naked.

So he takes a swing at me. He misses because he closes his eyes before he throws a punch but still he throws a punch at me.

Here’s the thing: I fight a lot. Like way too much by any sane standard. I weigh like 180 something and I’m fucking strong. Gary is 130 at most, weak as fuck, and also has spent the entire time I’ve known him annoying the shit out of me, and also is naked in our living room and trying to fuck my friend in her boyfriend’s apartment.

So I swing back. And I don’t miss.

Gary stummbles back and I kick hm in the ass because why not. I fucking rain on him for like 20 seconds before he tries grabbing on to me.

This is the point where I realize he’s still ROCK FUCKING HARD.

So I grab him by the dick.

And I pull.

Hard.

I fucking lift Gary off the ground by his dick. At this point Paul and Kyle are getting back from their errands, and they walk into the apartment to see me giving Gary the worst handjob of all time while he tries his best moose call. They kinda just stare for a minute while I spin Gary around the room by his dick before Grace comes in screaming about what happened and Kyle jumps in to beat the shit out of Gary.

So we kick the shi9t out of Gary and make him put pants on before we kick him out because we aren’t a bunch of fucking savages and we all joke about it every time I’m arguing with someone at a party Kyle tells everyone I’ll rip their dicks off. Like a week later Grace hears from a friend that Gary tore a groin muscle from our little fight and it becomes even more hilarious to all of us we spoke to Gary once after this he called Grace a bitch and I threatened to feed him his balls.

So that’s the story of the time I gave a dude a mid-fight handy that was so rough I sent him to the hospital.
