At least once, Sherlock has jolted awake during the night looking scared and John’s sat up quickly next to him like “oh God are you okay was it a nightmare was is Serbia what was it love are you okay can you talk to me??” and Sherlock just shook his head a bit dazed and was like “no I just dreamed there was a really big spider in the room, will you check under the bed?”
The IT (2017) fandom has not even hit it’s peak in shit posting. We still have TWO years. I have been in fandoms before that had to wait longer (Sherlock for example). The hiatus gets scary. Pretty soon, us fanfiction writers will be writing Reddie ‘The Great Gatsby’ au fics and the posts will literally be just small icons of Stan’s face saying “same”
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.

BILLY: What with the monster and that ruddy prison, I don’t know how we sleep nights. Do you, Gary? (Gary stops and puts a hand on his shoulder and looks at him affectionately.) GARY: Like a baby. BILLY: That’s not true. (He looks at John.) He’s a snorer. GARY (embarrassed, trying to shut him up): Hey, wheesht! BILLY (to John): Is yours a snorer? JOHN: … Got any crisps?
It makes me want a weekly update of the supernatural fandom slowly losing their shit.
Like, “what do we have this week Tom?” “Well Frank today marks the third week Supernatural has been on hiatus and also since Castiel has died *screams and sobbing heard in the background* and it looks like some are taking the song "carry on my wayward son” and using a bagel" “wow what’s next for them?” “Well tune in next week for the next mental break down…now for an update on the Sherlock fandom *everyone holds up middle finger* yep that’s stayed pretty consistent”
When it’s been almost nine months since TFP and your faith in TJLC is beginning to wean and you’re considering giving up and saying goodbye thEN BOOM BBC HAS DONE SOMETHING FUCKY AGAIN THERE’S A WHOLE NEW SHIT TON OF METAS AND THE FANFICS ARE ROLLING IN AND THIS IS YOUR ENTIRE LIFE TIL AND YOU WONDER WHY YOU THOUGHT YOU COULD EVER LEAVE
We’d like to Introduce H.I.A.T.U.S. a monthly Johnlock writing challenge blog.
After the lackluster BBC Sherlock Series 4 we received from TPTB, we wanted to create a way to encourage Johnlockers to keep creating amazing Sherlock fan work!
Our goal is to create a space that promotes community among Johnlock fanfic writers and their audiences through interaction and feedback. H.I.A.T.U.S. aims to be a fun place for readers and a safe space for aspiring writers to explore, make friends, find a project, and promote their work to a wider audience.
Every month we will run writing theme challenges, everyone is welcome to join in! Any submissions received will be posted to the blog during that month. If you’re interested in finding out more, please check out our submission guidelines.
We’re also in the process of creating a Johnlock Fic Masterlist of fanfiction written by our brilliant fan community! This list will be broken up into categories so it’s easy to find whatever story you’re looking for. If you have a fic that’s 25,000 words or less that you think is fantastic let us know by sending us a link through our ask box.
Please help us spread the word by reblogging and signal boosting this post!
Please let us know if you would like to be tagged in our future posts and challenge announcements, or if you would like to be removed!
