The thing I love about Andrew Scott is not only the look of confusion and disgust in this gif but the fact that he plays Moriarty with a different view of madness and insanity almost up to the point of almost coming off sane (idk if that makes sense).
to be honest, i think it’s not surprising that the fans of the BBC series Sherlock (aka the Sherlockians) are so fucking insane. I mean look at fans from the books that lived in the 19th century. Those guys dressed up as Sherlock so Sir Doyle would continue writing the books. The fandom has been insane since fucking ever.
And now it looks like innocence is gone I know right and I know what’s wrong
What was Sebastian supposed to do, after the rooftop? He couldn’t let Jim go. Couldn’t forget him. So he created him again. In his head. And from then on it was just Sebastian Moran and his private, pretend Jim, giving him orders and whispering to him everything he needs to hear.
It has been done a lot, I know. But I have my personal view of how
Sherlock’s Characters would fit in the Houses of Hogwarts.
First of all, I’d like to point out that those characters (LIKE EVERY
HUMAN BEING) possess traits from more than one house. What I’m doing here is
trying to understand what stands out the most.
Also it is important to remember that the hat takes into consideration what the person truly wants.
I won’t lie about that. I hate it when people put Sherlock in Slytherin.
I don’t think the problem is that they don’t understand Sherlock, I believe the
reason is that they don’t really know what a Slytherin really is… or
better, they don’t know what a Ravenclaw really is.
So, Sherlock is a RAVENCLAW, of course.
Here are the differences between the two houses:
Ravenclaw: wit, intelligence, originality, open mind, creativity,
So, there is no denying that Sherlock possess a couple of Slytherin
traits, every person in the world has traits from different houses. Sherlock is
both clever and resourceful.
Though he isn’t in any way ambitious, he has no interest in leading or
in gaining power. Sherlock doesn’t do what he does for the fame, he even hates
his fame. And let’s be honest… he doesn’t even know what “self-preservation”
Sherlock is clearly a Ravenclaw. He has a witty personality. He is
intelligent, curious and has an incredibly open mind. He does what he does for
the sake of it, not to reach a good position, not to get praised for it (of
course he likes to get praised, but it is not his main goal). Sherlock has a
strong individuality; you see it from the very first moment he appears on
screen. He is so lost in his inner mind that he fails to notice other people’s
problems. Sherlock rises from the crowd, he is different.
To me it is as clear as the sun that he is a Ravenclaw.
I’ve noticed some people put John in Hufflepuff. I don’t agree with that,
I think John would be a GRYFFINDOR and here’s the reason. Of course john is loyal
and (sometimes) kind as the next Hufflepuff, but I believe that the first thing
we notice about him is bravery. We are often told that he has strong nerves and
his sense of justice is incredibly evident.
But the truth is that the real reason John would be a Gryffindor is
because he would choose to be one, like he chose to be an army-doctor instead
of just a doctor.
In total honesty Moriarty is the most difficult of all, because he is a psychopath
so his mind works in a strange way.
His case is similar to Sherlock’s, because we need to decided whether he
belongs in Slytherin or in Ravenclaw.
When I thought about it the first time I immediately picked Slytherin,
without even considering the other houses, but then I decided to go deep inside
I think the best thing would be taking into consideration all the traits
Wit: Moriarty is insanely witty, it goes without saying. He is a fast
thinker, he is humorous, he talks in puns and likes riddles. Those are clear Ravenclaw’s
Originality: Moriarty is incredibly original in his ways. The real Jim
Moriarty stands out probably more than Sherlock himself does. He is one of a
Open mind: I honestly don’t know about that… I think that to have an
open mind you reacquire to care about the world around and he clearly doesn’t.
Creativity: I suppose you need to be rather creative to organized all
those crimes and never repeat yourself.
Individuality: Well of course.
Curiosity: Jim IS curious… maybe not about everything, but still
Ambition: To know that we should understand what are the motives behind
his actions. He often talks about boredom so it seems like he doesn’t really have
a thirst for power. Though he’s got power, great power and he uses it. He also
advertised himself with that infamous trail. I think he is ambitious, but I can’t
be sure… with a character like Moriarty we can only suppose.
Self-preservation: Yes. It is true that he committed suicide, I know…
But let’s not forget that he has always worked in the dark, behind everyone’s
Cunning: Well, shit.
Leadership: He did lead a criminal web successfully!
Fraternity: I don’t really know. We have always been told how alone he
was. We’ve never seen him interact with people, so again we can only make
supposition based on really little information.
Resourcefulness: Incredibly resourceful, yes.
The problem still remains. Like John he possesses many traits from different
houses, so the only option is that he would be able to decide in which house he
Would Moriarty choose Slytherin and be the great leader of the cunnings?
Or would he choose RAVENCLAW instead, and stay away from the attention and from
the expectation of him doing evil things?
I believe he would choose the second option but it’s again a
Mary is a SLYTHERIN. There isn’t much to say about it.
Resourcefulness, cunning, ambitious, self-preservation. To me she is a true
Slytherin, and an incredible one to be honest.
Mary is also brave as a Gryffindor, loyal as a Hufflepuff and witty as a
Ravenclaw. But the majority of her traits belong to Slytherin.
Again, a SLYTHERIN. An incredible, seductive and persuasive Slytherin.
Irene is a Slytherin even more than Mary is. It’s difficult to find
other houses’ traits in her portrayal.
She played Sherlock and the British government with ease, charm and prowess.
She did everything with the aim of obtaining something.
I strongly believe Molly belongs to HUFFLEPUFF. I noticed that a few
people put her into Ravenclaw, probably because of her job. I don’t agree with
that; Molly may be smart and dedicated to her studies and job, but those characteristics
do not belong to Ravenclaw. Not every person that succeed in a job that require
years of studying is a Ravenclaw… that’s absurd.
Molly is loyal, kind, patient, unafraid of hard work and she plays fair.
A true Hufflepuff indeed.
I think we all agree that Mycroft is the most SLYTHERIN to ever slythering.
Really, there is no need to expatiate.
With Greg it is a bit difficult, because again there are two houses in
which he would easily belong: Gryffindor and Hufflepuff.
I’m more for GRYFFINDOR though, considering his job choice.
HUFFLEPUFF forever and beyond.
Considering Slytherin’s traits she is cunning, resourceful and she lead an
entire secretive prison.
Nothing from Gryffindor.
Certainly nothing from Hufflepuff.
As for Ravanclaw, she is curios I think… she is also highly intelligent.
He lurkes at the fringes of the story from the very beginning. Appearing in different roles. Playing the ‘Great Game’ with Sherlock. Showing him what he can do. Cutting loose all those people and fascinating little problems. Even thirty million quid are obviously no hardship for him. Dazzling and insane and dangerous Jim Moriarty. Then he commits suicide. He is dead. But he doesn’t stay dead. He haunts Sherlock’s mind. He reappeares like a ghost. Again and again. Raises his head in Sherlock’s victorian dream as a ghostly, murderous bride with a blood smeared mouth. And even when John throws him over the waterfall he is still not out of the picture. He comes flying back into the story dramatically with a helicopter as it seems?
Jim Moriarty - who is he? What is he? The man who set the stage for the 'Great Game’. Is he the author of that play, the storyteller … or maybe the ghostwriter …..
Following the trace of modern 'fairy tales’ I stumbled over some interesting characters:
Lmao @ antis thinking we’re mad that sherlock and John didn’t kiss and our ship didn’t become explicitly canon and exclaiming that it was such a great episode
Like ???? Nothing was explained???? Why did Eurus flirt with John and pretend to be his therapist???? When the fuck did Mary make and send these fucking dvds???? Why did TFP seem like a totally different show??? Like there was nothing that connected it to anything else??? Mofftiss threw all of their hard work out the window?????? HOW WAS THIS GROUND BREAKING TELEVISION??? IT WAS SO CLICHE???? It was just poorly written??? Tbh I’m not even mad about johnlock as much as I am about how that episode just fucking sucked ass in general it was laughable THERE WAS A GOD DAMN CLOWN AND AM I SUPPOSED TO BELIEVE THAT MYCROFT WOULD ACTUALLY LET HIS INSANE SISTER MEET WITH MORIARTY??? THERE ARE SO MANY HOLES
… gently teasing you for being nervous before a gig/appearance.
But he knows how much it means to you so he secretly books a seat in the front row to surprise you. You recognize him very soon and with his smile all your tension fades away.
(for the lovely ima-mini-cookie. I know it’s quite corny – like my whole blog lol – but you know, I bet he’d have this ‘Darling, you know I’ll blow up your whole school if they dare to criticise you’ expression :D)
