again please don’t be offended or anything if you don’t see yourself here, these were just a few off the top of my head. i’m thankful for all of my followers. even the porn bots.  also if we’re mutuals and i didn’t say so here punch me sorry i’ll fix it. thank you all again!! 

I am a nerd.  

(A shocking revelation, I know.)  

I am a nerd with just enough DIY knowledge to be dangerous, and friends who enable my obsessions.  At the suggestion of one such friend and with a judicious application of red thread, I managed to elevate my $12 thrift store coat from low-key Sherlock to mid-key Sherlock.


I’m not sure if she thought I would take her seriously, but I doubt she’ll be surprised.


when i was younger, my mom used to just listen to her friends bragging about their sons. she just listened to them without saying anything. so i thought i want to make my mom be proud of her son, too. and today i made my parents proud thanks to you. i want to tell my family that i’m very thankful. I love you, mom and dad! I love you too army 

happy birthday to the hard working kim seokjin that wanted to make his parents proud and im sure they’re really proud of him, we all are. you worked hard kim seokjin and deserve nothing but good in your life. i know i joke about this but i really mean it when i say that i would rob all the stars from the sky if it meant you would always be surrounded by love and happiness and never once doubt the light in your heart thank you for your existence. happy birthday, i love you


So if at times I seem overprotective of the system that we’ve built, if I worry that the resentments of others might disrupt it, I have good reason.

#what elementary did with it’s 100th episode was a testament to the kind of show is #to the kind of show #the kind of holmes adaptation - it has tried to be from the start #what they chose to do with their milestone episode is the epitome of all the ways it stands in stark contrast to any other adaptation #any other show not just any other sherlock adaptation but any other crime procedural would have pulled out the big guns #and dealt their lead/s a huge case and packed it full of guest stars or notable minor characters #for sherlock stories specifically no one could begrudge you for assuming moriarty would play a key role #but that has never been what drives elementary #the 100th episode offered all it’s emotional significance to what has always been the core of the show #that sherlock is better because of the people he surrounds himself with #that there is no true reward in playing the lone genius cut off from society/humanity #and his partnership with joan is the finest exemplar of that #yes the bit with marcus in the opening was nice #and gregson’s little speech at the end pulled at my heart strings #both because of it narrative significance and the subtext of it being written for the cast and crew’s dedication to the show bts #but it always comes back to this #one holmes #one watson #the single fact that elementary is fundamentally about sherlock valuing human connections and interpersonal relationships #over solving the puzzle #will forever set it apart from any other sherlock adaptation #and that might be a criticism for some #but it will forever be one of the key reasons that i cherish and adore it

To all my writers out there, particularly fanfic writers because I am one and I’m feelin this hardcore

  • It’s okay that you haven’t written for a while, you can take breaks.
  • You can start writing again whenever you want, you don’t need an excuse.
  • If you would still like an excuse, here it is: I want you to start again, you should totally do it.
  • It’s ok if you’re out of practice, you’ll pick up traction again.
  • We’re all learners and its good to have role models, but try to be better than the writer were before, and try less to be ‘as good as’ someone else.
  • It’s alright to abandon a piece if you have no enthusiasm or passion left for it.
  • It’s okay to be needlessly dramatic.
  • It’s okay to be needlessly ridiculous.
  • Write the crackfic, write the rarepair, or write the popular pair. Write what you want to write.
  • Yes someone has probably written this scene before.
  • Write it anyway if you want to write it.
  • Yeah that trope has probably been done a million times.
  • Use it anyway if you want to use it.
  • Probably there are people who are tired of reading about that AU.
  • Write it anyway, they don’t have to read it.
  • Respect your audience, but don’t let other people dictate what you create.
  • Reblog your own work. Be proud of it. You deserve to pat yourself on the back.
  • I’m proud of you, you’re doing great.
  • Keep writing, keep making stuff. People will care. 
  • Future you will especially care.

He gotta give him that air you know


Than any boy you’ll ever meet 

Sweetie you had me
