in fact i was pretty lazy with the entire thing

When I saw that post about how ASIB must have happened after THOB because of Mrs Hudson’s dress and other little inconsistencies I was like “it actually makes 100% sense” but I totally forgot that John actually mentions Irene in the THOB entry so that pretty much destroys the entire theory. I mean, I won’t ever learn, will I? Tons of things, like Mrs Hudson’s dress and the fact that dates are inconsistent throughout the entire show are just lazy plot holes. And that’s not an insult, that’s a fact. There is not a single show without plot holes and we can’t expect Sherlock to be any different. Some things don’t make any sense because there is no way they ever could, they are just mistakes.

a love letter to the doctor who/sherlock fandom

you deserve so much better than these shows. 

alright, let me explain. a couple of years ago, these fandoms were my life. i was very interested in these shows, and since the fanbase was and is made up of primarily teenage to 20-something girls, i was immediately welcomed and made comfortable in it. i had fun with you guys! we made theories, analyzed every bit of information we got, and it motivated me to write more and work on something that i found i loved. as “cringey” as it can be painted as, this fandom was a fun thing to be apart of and i had a genuinely good time as a part of it. 

the issue isn’t with you guys, though- it’s with your showrunner. 

steven moffat runs both of these shows, and they both have one thing in common- lazy writing both about women and for women. 

i am absolutely not attacking you for enjoying this and loving these characters. i also loved these characters and were inspired by them! the issue is with how they’re treated in the show. 

here’s a good example from sherlock: irene adler. putting aside the fact that she pretty much revolutionized my entire life, she was deeply interesting, intelligent, and good character- for the first half of the episode she was in. 

irene was so cool and interesting to watch because she posed a serious threat to sherlock. she directly countered him and beat him when they went head to head, showing that he could be outsmarted and she, more importantly, was capable of doing all of this on her own. 

this unravels towards the ending- it’s shown that she needed moriarty to do all of this and she was secretly crippled by her love for sherlock. 

the issue with this isn’t even just that she’s “turning straight” for sherlock (or that she’s another stereotype of the hypersexualized bisexual if you’re looking that way), it’s the fact that she is helpless if not for men and because of men. she depends on moriarity to be intelligent and she falls apart for sherlock because he’s a smart, intelligent, better than her man. 

she isn’t the only character like this. think amy pond and how the doctor constantly yells at her because he knows better than her. think clara and how her entire life, everything that makes her special, revolves around that she lives for the doctor. think mary and how her entire life is a tool to give john and sherlock reasons to develop as characters. think the master turned missy, suddenly a flirty, hypersexual being completely enthralled with the doctor in a way she wasn’t in her earlier incarnations. even river, an amazing and mysterious time lord, dies for the doctor because he’s so wonderful that she had to see him. 

it doesn’t even stop there! can anyone explain where demon’s run came from? i am genuinely wondering here and i have been for years now. where did kadavra and her space army come from?! why can the doctor cause a second big bang but can’t go back in time slightly before or after the paradox where amy and rory are stuck instead of leaving them behind? i haven’t seen the new season of sherlock, but i’m seeing even more complaints about the plot with that, too.

every time someone questions moffat on it, he treats the fandom as though they’re just too dumb to figure it out. 

first off, if your viewers couldn’t put together how something was done on your show without it being explained, especially in something that has such a massive and diverse following, you are a bad writer. fact. cut and print, you are. if something doesn’t make in-world logical sense to your viewers your writing is weak. 

the fact of the matter is, moffat views you all as too stupid to be able to realize that he made giant plot errors. he creates these female characters the way he does because he thinks that this is all you guys are limited to.

here’s the thing: you aren’t. so many of you are incredibly creative and smart. you guys invented ways for this shit writing to make sense in fantastical and spellbinding ways. you didn’t find yourselves in the shit boxes that he made for you, but instead took his “superior men” characters and made them more interesting and deep than he ever could. you drew and wrote and thought and inspired yourselves and each other in more ways than anyone else. 

you deserve so much better than a shit writer who thinks he’s better than you all when you’ve all done so much more creativity than he ever has in his garbage shows. take what you’ve learned and go. go make your own stories. make women you can relate to because they’re actually closer to people than puppets. fall in love and build worlds and travel the world with the power that you have inside of yourselves. you made friends and little worlds and families out of this. take them with you and make them better. you can do anything in the world alone but you don’t have to. you made friends and a community, and you can help each other and continue to build each other up while also spiting the same shithead that accidentally brought you together. 

these shows aren’t shit because you guys are interested in it. it’s shit because it’s underestimating all of you. you can and will make better things that you can all love and share. 

so yeah. fuck moffat and his shit writing. love yourselves. that is all.


My future is promising,
That’s why I take rests sometimes.
–Don’t Say “Lazy”, K-ON!

Arguably one of the most popular ending sequences in K-ON, spawing hundreds upon thousands of pieces of fanart of the girls in their respective outfits, ‘Don’t Say “Lazy”’ not only stands out as one of the more memorable segments of the series visually, but lyrically as well.

Most K-ON fans know the music of the series is not half-assed–not in the slightest. This song proves that fact and while the lyrics can seem just like a jumble of personal thoughts and trouble, along with the music video being a big moment for the series artistically, there lies some good messages, themes, and interesting tidbits laced throughout the two mediums. Taking apart the lyrics and music video separately, beyond the read more cut we will analyze the lyrics and music video in depth and connect themes and such that give this great song an ever greater clarity.

So do you think Sans' health sucking is just restricted to the hit points, or are there more reasons for the constant mentions of Papyrus "taking care of" him besides his being lazy as hell? Good grief this might actually connect to why he's asleep so often-- I sleep as much as possible when I feel awful.

I’m not entirely sure, but I think it has everything to do with why he’s always so tired and “lazy.”  Depression can really take a toll on somebody’s personality, y’know?

I think Papyrus makes every effort to “take care” of his brother, and without his constant prodding and encouragement, Sans may in fact be pretty lost.  It’s probably part of the reason why Sans admires his bro so much and thinks he’s so cool: he doesn’t give up on anything, not even on Sans, even when things look so bleak.

That said, I’m not sure Sans’ lack of energy is 100% due to his implied depression.  I think he spends a large amount of his time working on his studies of the timelines and the ability to reset, SAVE, and so on and so forth, and as a result tends to work throughout the night.
