The Brothers Grimm, lovely fellas; they’re on my darts team. According to them, there’s this emperor, and he asks this shepherd’s boy, ‘How may seconds in eternity?’        And the shepherd’s boy says, ‘There’s this mountain of pure diamond. It takes an hour to climb it, an hour to go around it. Every hundred years, a little bird comes and sharpens its beak on the diamond mountain. And when the entire mountain is chiseled away, the first second of eternity will have passed. You must think that’s a hell of a long time. Personally, I think that’s a hell of a bird.’
—  Twelfth Doctor, Heaven Sent
Things other than the actual content of the show that make no sense outside of tjlc

• Mark and Steven saying that TPLoSH is both their favorite movie and that it’s one of their biggest inspirations for BBC Sherlock.
• Mark and Steven being as excited as they were for the waterfall scene.
• The fact that Mark and Steven have explicitly said they lie about major plot points, when all they’ve really talked about is not doing johnlock and the baby.
• The LGB surveys BBC put out right before making Sherlock.
• Everyone on the show and the commissioners really, really liked the pilot, and only remade it so it would be longer and more polished.
• The writers going on and on about LGBT representation, proving that queerbaiting is not an option for this show.
• Amanda accidentally saying that they’re bringing a “hus- wife for sher- john” (damn she did that)
• Arwel posting elephants nonstop when they clearly know that we know what the elephants mean, so either they’re queerbaiting (which they aren’t) or they’re planning to address the elephant in the room
• “love conquers all”

BBC Sherlock has me so fucked up I've started applying tjlc theories to real life situations
  • Someone: *prefers tea over coffee*
  • Me: *understanding gay eyebrow wiggle*
  • -
  • Someone: *has an elephant in their house/on their clothing*
  • Me: what are they hiding in plain sight?????
  • -
  • Someone: *lends me their phone*
  • Me: *tearing up* omg I love you too

Harry Potter is like the gateway fandom. You start reading the books, then all of a sudden you have a sonic screwdriver, you want to go to Rivendell, and you have this awkward fascination with Sherlock Holmes. And you don’t really know how any of it happened, but you’re pretty sure it started with Mr. and Mrs. Vernon Dursley of Four Privet Drive who were proud to say that they were perfectly normal thank you very much.

The Silent Flying of an Owl. 

The video shows how effortlessly an owl fly’s compared to other bird species. 

A pigeon that has a relatively large body and small wings needs to flap furiously to produce enough lift. A falcon has large wings that move more aggressively so the bird can gain much faster speeds. 

Both birds create large turbulence in the air and noise as a result. Comparatively, the owl is the perfect night time hunter, silently flying through the sky.
