It’s just been brought to my attention that there are rumors being started and spread by manipulative members of our own meta-fandom saying that vocal bloggers are being contacted by the BBC and are instructed to be quiet because Sherlock isn’t over. My name’s come up as one of those contacted to keep the secret. Yeah, this isn’t true at all. You’re being played, again. As much as I’d love for that to be true, it’s not. No one on here has secret information from TPTB. No one. Bringing my name into it in order to gather followers to what might be the farthest-reaching conspiracy yet is actually insane. Do i believe we might get more footage? Yes i do. Do i know when? Obviously not, I’m a rando with a Sherlock blog that writes meta as a hobby. I have never supported any secret online ARG theory and I never will. I was crucified back in mid January for having the audacity to suggest the concept of a secret episode based on 50 different facts spanning 130 years of content, but now it’s totally okay for people to blindly follow fake ARGs into oblivion without so much as a thought to check the sources? What’s happened to this Fandom? Where are the priorities?
The fact that I’m listed as part of an ARG because i took a hiatus just shows how desperate fans are to believe the show’s creators and distributors care about the inner workings of a tiny online community because they are awfully quiet. I took a hiatus because Internet life is exhausting and I have pressing in-person priorities that supercede anything on here. Much like the creators of this show. They are quiet because they want to be. Because they have a lot of waiting to do.
Happy (Belated) Birthday @50-points-for-ravenclaw!!! This is pretty silly but well, I obviously can’t write anything else.
Jack can’t help but smile at the sound of Bitty’s voice and
the sight of his smiling face, even though his heart aches to reach through the
computer screen and touch him. This is enough though, for now, and he can just
imagine the feel of flushed skin beneath his palms, soft hair and lithe
“Hey, how was your day?”
“Oh,” Bitty sighs, and Jack can see the heaviness to his
eyes that means he needs sleep. It’s midterms, and if Jack wasn’t so selfish,
he’d insist that Bitty get some rest or study instead of spending an hour
talking to him. But god, he needs this.
“It was long, you know, we had practice this morning - Ransom seems to have
decided that good captains force us
to practice at ungodly hours of the morning.” Jack smirks in the face of Bitty’s
glare, pleased when his skin starts to light up a bit. “And then, oh lord, I
can’t believe I forgot about this! Nursey was singing to Dex in the showers, I
wasn’t really paying attention to be quite honest, and then Chowder starting
yelling and came running out of there, the poor child’s face was so red, he
couldn’t even string a sentence together, but when me and Holster ran back
there everything seemed to be normal. Dex was bright red, but well now, that
one is always blushing about
something, and Nursey was just doing his usual thing. I don’t know what’s going
on with those boys but I am really starting to get sick of this tension.”
“Dex has a crush on Nurse,” Jack says, freezing when he
catches movement out of the corner of his eye. Uh oh. Act natural Zimmermann.
