Title:Bridging the Ravine (Link goes to ao3) Author: SilentAuror Complete? Yes, but I’m posting one chapter at a time! Chapter 2 will be up tomorrow around the same time! Length: This chapter: 28,209 words Pairing: Sherlock/John Rating: Explicit! Notes, etc: Set after series 4. Not a fix-it as such. Summary: Sherlock and John go undercover at Ravine Valley, a therapy centre for same-sex male couples in an investigation into a possible human trafficking ring. As they pose as a couple and fake their way through the therapy sessions for the sake of the case, it quickly becomes difficult to avoid discussing their very real issues. Set roughly six nine months after series 4.
It’s finally up!! Despite a sudden trip out of town, thinking my phone was broken and having to run a long errand out of the way, and then having the electricity go out in my neighbourhood and having to go to a hotel!!
We have a new season of The X-files, people! Season 11 is coming! We will have shooting days with candids, fake call sheets, many-many gates, hundreds of theories, huge press tour, interviews, photo shoots, tonnes of fuckery and of course sleepless nights. We will have months of new experiences to share and 10 new episodes of our favourite show! 10! Not 6, but 10! Just think about all the crazy good things we shared after Season 10 was announced. On the road leading up to the new season, new people joined the fandom, new friendships were born and people were here to discuss all type of topics. It can always go a bit too crazy, but hey, this is a fandom. We are weird, so there is that. Tumblr is a sanctuary to everyone.
Or it was, until a couple of months ago the fandom has been divided and not because of the ships, but because of egos and personalities. Out of a sudden, we had a Tumblr police going around policing & bullying people. They were yelling at people about respect while attacking them why they live in a fantasy world and calling them names. People deleted their blogs, because of this! I’ve never seen so much hate in this fandom before and I don’t want that darkness in my home, again.
Now, they want to come back, ‘cause The X-files is back, and pretend like nothing happened. Well, I’m sorry but “You’ve made your bed, now lie in it.” You called people stupid, delusional, crazy - to say the least offensives - you created a blog for the sole purpose of mocking people, you hated on David, you said Gillian would never do X-files again, you said Gillian and David’s relationship is toxic. Feeling superior, bullying and mocking other people’s hobbies, making fun of their obsessions and enjoying all of this is not okay. I don’t think this behaviour should be forgiven, ‘cause if you did it once, you’ll do it again. So, please just stop creating another drama the deeds are done.
The two sides could exist next to each other, you just have to stop obsessing about the other side. You clearly stated your beliefs, your interest, stick with it. At least have the guts to stick with what you preached for months! I made the choice to have no interest in some topics and bloggers, you should do the same. Everyone should do that, instead of debating why people treat them the way you do. (Hint: not because who you ship, it’s never been about that)
I’m not gonna ruin our - probably - last chance to enjoy the crazy ride, this new season will bring. I only follow bloggers who don’t go around judging people, who treat each other with respect here. I have my happy place and I’m perfectly ready to lose our shit together, fangirl and not sleep once August comes. I advise all of you to do the same! This place can be the best, I promise you!
This blog will stay drama-free from tomorrow - cause let’s be honest, I might have to reply to some messages 😂 - and will only concentrate on joy, positive energy, love and a good spiralling is really overdue, don’t you think? This is what I’m here for. Bring on Season 11! ❤️❤️
You know how there’s an Easter egg in each “Investigations” game where Phoenix shows up in the background? I was tee-heeing about the fact that Edgeworth just happens to talk about couples at that moment in AAI and decided to look into the dialogue in Phoenix’s AAI2 cameo. It did not disappoint.
AAI: この橋を一緒に渡った恋人たちは幸せになるという言い伝えがある。(They say that couples who cross this bridge together will find happiness.)
AAI2: どこかに特別なヒトがいるようにも見えないですし。(I don’t see anyone special around here either.)
It isn’t as striking in the English version, but in the original Japanese, Kay uses the term 特別なヒト - literally “special person.” She isn’t using it in this sense, but it’s often used in the same way as the English “special someone” to refer to a significant other. (If you don’t believe me, trying googling
and see how many love/dating sites pop up.)
So basically both times Phoenix shows up the game practically shouts, “HEY LOOK, THERE’S YOUR BOYFRIEND.”
