(if i made any mistakes, shoot me an ask here and lmk!)

what do people do if they aren’t in fandoms ??

Just for the record, in 12x10 we have:

  • Cas in a female vessel
  • Dean and Cas bickering like an old married couple
  • Dean and Cas giving each other the silent treatment (seriously I have read this in SO MANY fics, and now it’s actually on the show like)
  • Sam trying to be the mediator
  • Sam and Dean standing up for Cas against his siblings
  • Also Dean not being able to wait outside while Cas is in there with other angels
  • …Three grown ass men all sitting on one bench
  • Seriously. CAS IN A FEMALE VESSEL and so hot as a girl as well

Just. The Destiel in This Episode. It gives me life.

RIP The Final Problem

It’s been a strange week. A week of “art imitate life; life imitates art” on a constant loop. As I dreaded the approaching Inauguration Day, the last thing I expected was the creators of Sherlock breaking the fourth wall to remind me “life is rarely pure and never simple.” Uh, thanks. I guess?

I have engaged with TFP in good faith and expressed my disappointment and constructed my theory. I have attempted rewatching in multiple occasions since in hope to gain insights but failed miserably. There have been many brilliant readings by so many of you, and honestly, you gave me the brightest and most lighthearted moments in an otherwise miserable week. You rule, truly; and from the bottom of my heart, I thank you.

TFP is an abnormality in bbc Sherlock canon – you don’t have to see or believe in the romance between Sherlock and John to recognize the fact. Many audiences did as well, and I hear the same conclusion from friends (most casual of all casuals) – the creators jumped the shark. There is likely a reason; everything about the episode screams inconsistencies, and they were made to be noticeable. But there’s the rub – without proper context (TPTB’s silence), every single explanation is plausible. We can speculate, endlessly, because anything is possible. The exact same could be said of the plot of TFP.

My feeling regarding the possibility of a fourth episode remains the same: there is no evidence supporting the claim, but I cannot ignore the abnormality that was TFP even if I wanted to. But I am done trying to justify an episode that defies logic: where the text and the subtext seemingly cancel each other out at every turn. TFP offers just enough for every reading possible under the sun yet providing an equal amount of plausible deniability; an episode that could mean anything, therefore nothing at all. The only thing left of TFP at this point for me is its potential for spectacular crack (and there’ll be plenty).

One thing is clear, however; the crisis of narrative is one manufactured deliberately by the creators of Sherlock; they may not have anticipated the severity of its impact on our corner of the fandom, but to say they are not aware of the queer reading of acd canon, and of Sherlock due to the queer codings they applied in their own show is utterly laughable. A fourth episode will not change this fact – no matter how much I still love the story of Sherlock and John, I will continue to hold Mofftiss and Co. responsible for employing the offensive tactics at the expense of the show’s most loyal fans. So good riddance, The Final Problem; I will not let the ill-intention or ignorance of a few in power denies us the beautiful story between Sherlock and John — one that we cherish with all our hearts and souls ever since the day they met (7 or 130 years ago, take your pick).

Finally managed to work past my art block (kinda)!

Jedi! Shmi is dedicated to the magnificent @mirandatam. I hope this helps out with your writer’s block, friendo. (I also hope this shade of green is okay. If not, lemme know and I’ll alter it a bit <3)

(And pssst, other peeps. Mira has a Jedi Shmi AU that is pretty damn popular. Take a looksie. I definitely gotta read it myself soon!)

Word Count: (without translations) 2880, (with translations) 2982

Genre: fluff, coming out, humour, literal miscommunication (because of different languages, I swear there’s no angst)

Warnings: bad French probably

Summary:

Based off this post (x)

Phil is dating Dan and today is the day he was finally going to meet his parents. Of course he’s nervous, who wouldn’t be? He wants to make a good impression. This may be made a tiny bit harder by the fact that Phil’s terrible at French and that’s mostly what Dan’s parents speak.

(Big thanks to @thereisspringintheair and @justcuzfandoms for basically doing most of the translations for me! Any mistakes are on me and me alone, although I’d like to formally say “screw you” to google translate.)

A/N Just in case you don’t understand, Dan’s family speaks mostly French. Dan himself can speak both French and English fluently, and Phil is just terrible at learning another language. The English translations are in bold next to what they say in French. Also, Dan is asexual.

So you’re in McHanzo Hell and want Fanfic

McHanzo Hell: It’s fast, dangerous, and by the time you realize you’re infected you already have a new fetish for pony tails AND hats. But don’t worry, you’re not alone when it comes to really really REALLY wanting to see McCree and Hanzo smooch. There are plenty of fanfics of the pair out there, and Auntie Arachne is here to share some of her favorites!

Beware, most of these aren’t finished yet! But I know you’re strong enough to handle waiting

Hang the Fool - Read this fic. Do it. Put away whatever you’re doing and read this fanfic. Good Lord this is THE McHanzo Fanfic to read! A very canon take on McCree and Hanzo meeting, falling in love, and a whole bunch of stuff getting in the way. This story is so good it made me re-edit romance scenes in my own writing to make them better. That’s right this fic made me want to WRITE AND EDIT oh my god it’s so good

Oh Simple Thing - DID SOMEONE SAY ANGST AND H/C BECAUSE BOY I GOT THE FIC FOR YOU it’s years after Overwatch and McCree and Hanzo meet as old, broken men. There’s a lot of angst and pain but good lord the ending had me muffling my fangirl screams of joy

A Losing Combination - Over in AU land we have one where Hanzo and McCree never left their life of crime. But don’t worry, they make it work anyway. With some added in Reaper76 because in for a penny in for a pound. (Heyooooo)

An American Werewolf in London - McCree is a Werewolf! Hanzo loves him anyway! There’s werewolf sex! Tada!

it’s like an episode of friends but only with more robots - a cute short fluff about when Hanzo and McCree kiss in front of the group for the first time

Dragon Heart String - Look, if there’s one thing you need to know about me it’s that I am absolute ‘soulmate/mating/bonding au’ trash. So here’s one now! McCree learns to meditate, not knowing that it has some side effects.

Like the River - McCree sees Hanzo’s dragons and is like a moth to the flame. The question is, will they hurt them as bad as Genji said they would?

12:00 AM - McCree and Hanzo are suffering from insomnia and decide to pass the time together.

Tips for Expanding Your Business on an International Scale - Man, I’ve been really slipping with these descriptions. Let me try to get my head back in the game. This takes place long ago pre-Overwatch when Hanzo is still with the Shimada Clan and McCree is has been sent to Japan by The Deadlock Gang to work out a business deal with said clan.

Now Streaming: McHanzo - My own personal trash! Six months ago D.Va noticed a spark between McCree and Hanzo. Now she’s determined to catch their first kiss live while streaming on her Twitch TV channel. Because it turns out everyone in the world of Overwatch are McHanzo shippers, too

Okay! I think that’s a good list! There’s lots more good fics out there but I need to cut this thing off at some point. Enjoy!

Remember when E’dawn gave Hui a ring that said “I love dawn” on it

I mean they’re literally a married couple so uh
