#SherlockLives: The Resurrection

The day is April 23rd, 2017.  It’s an ordinary Sunday afternoon in London.

The crowd bustles, trains whirr, birds chirp.

Life in the city is business as usual.

Three teenage girls take photographs outside 187 North Gower Street, soaking in the ambiance of the Sherlock set.  They step into Speedy’s for a cup of coffee.

The women lament over the loss of their favorite show. On March 8th, the BBC announced Sherlock would not be returning for a fifth series, and cowriters Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss were quick to assure their fans that it was time to lay the beloved program to rest.

But what the women saw next changed their lives forever.

You know why.

No, I don’t know why.

P.S. I know you two. And if I’m gone, I know what you can become, because I know who you really are. A junkie who solves crimes to get high, and the doctor who never came home from the war. Well you listen to me, who you really are doesn’t matter. It’s all about the legend. The stories, the adventures. There is a last refuge for the desperate, the unloved, the persecuted. There is a final court of appeal for everyone. When life gets too strange, too impossible, too frightening, there is always one last hope.

You’re in a round room with a 360° security camera suspended from the center of the ceiling.

What do you do if you want to hide something from the camera’s view?

Face the wall.


(Yes, this possibility requires a lot of assumptions. As does literally every possibility suggested based on the trailer. So meh.)

The spotlight has turned to point at the audience

I keep thinking about Derren Brown’s 2011 show “The Experiments” because I’m convinced Moftiss have drawn straight from this particular episode for some of their symbolism in S4, which would tell us that this series ended with the spotlights swinging around to point at us, the audience.

Derren set up a fake game show and filled a big audience who thought they were just there to watch an “experiment” on a man who was being watched with hidden cameras on a night out with friends. Well into the swing of the game show something unexpected happens. The subject they’re watching on hidden cameras is hit by a car (it’s okay, it was a stunt guy). But for the audience it sort of came out of the blue while they were yelling and cheering the events on. The audience gasps in shock then goes silent. Derren listens to his ear piece and paces the stage. The transmission cuts out, replaced by the TV test pattern screen.

While the Sherlock S4 promos were being released in Nov/Dec last year, somebody (maybe @skulls-and-tea?) noticed that the flashy rainbow colours behind the “It’s not a game anymore” text on the promos matched the colour bars of the standard test pattern screen:

The order of colours is the same - see? White, yellow, cian, green, pink, red. Once the test pattern pops up, the house lights go up and cameras turn to the audience.

The audience sits stunned because tragedy has struck during something they were cheering and laughing about only moments before (It’s not a game anymore). This audience is basically the tjlc fandom as the credits rolled on TFP.

(Tag yourself, I’m the girl leaving)

Derren turns to the audience again and reveals the secret to them that the ‘show’ was fake and it was all a stunt. THEY were the subjects of the experiment all along. Not the guy they thought they were experimenting on. I think the hidden test pattern in the S4 promos is a BIG hint. Those colour test bars are behind the pretend game show that was S4, the flickering image hinting that we’re about to go off air.

[Basically I’d wager that Moftiss drew specifically from this Derren Brown stunt, at least for the test pattern idea: it aired in 2011. It’s not that outrageous an idea. Anything Derren does is of interest to us, for these reasons.]

In TFP we’ve gone off air earlier than expected (no S5?) because something unexpected and tragic happened (John Watson was kidnapped and replaced with an imposter, villains became heroes, the baby survived, sherl0IIy threatens being considered canon. Basically, the show was hit by a car). We’re on stage now, or in other words, the cameras have spun around to point at us, the audience. Luckily, for Derren’s participants at least, it’s soon revealed that it was all fake, and all done for their benefit. He never leaves people hanging for very long (just long enough to make his point).

I just need to nab this gif (from @sofuckingchuffed) and put it here with this Derren quote, because it’s relevant.

“We’re all trapped inside our own heads. Our beliefs and understandings about the world are limited by that perspective. It can not work without you. You are a fundamental part of this show”

Team I can’t draw for shit or  make quality fanfiction so I kinda just sit here not contributing to this fandom at all

Put this in your phone, right now. This is the hotline for the US Congress. All those House bills you’re hearing about, (such as the one to terminate the EPA, defund Planned Parenthood, repeal the ACA, etc), this is where you start protesting them. It starts with a recorded message, and will ask you to input your zip code. It will then give you a list of your representatives, House AND Senate, based on that zip code. Leave messages for all of them.

I know this is tough for some of you. Believe me, I know. My hands shake all day leading up to and following these calls. Some of you might not have the time during your workday. You might not be able to even hear the prompt over whatever is going on in your head, in your home, in your life. If all you feel you can do is signal boost, please do. Type  “Who represents me” into Google, find out who your reps are. Visit your representatives’ websites, fill out those “Contact Us” forms, blast their contact info all over your FB page if you feel it’s safe to do so. 

I haven’t been seeing many stories lately about conservative representatives whining that their constituents won’t leave them alone. Let’s change that. 

WHY 👏   IS 👏   NO 👏   ONE 👏  TALKING 👏   ABOUT 👏   THE 👏  FACT 👏 THAT 👏   THIS 👏  IS 👏  MORAN????

i’m reposting buT IT MEANS THIS IS MAYBE SORT OF PROOF THAT THIS WHOLE JOHN CHEATING THING IS IN SHERLOCK’S HEAD. we already had hints that this is mind palace/dream sequences with the glowing skull on the wall, with sherlock admitting to reoccurring dreams, with water references happening everywhere (including when he was drugged and dreaming about pirate times). the newspaper he’s holding references a case he was working on ‘two places at the same time’, the advert peeking over her shoulder is of culverton being creepy af and she is culverton’s daughter (or in some way related), Sherlock’s mind is filling in the blanks and adding random faces to people in his dream and then he’s trying to make sense of it by going to ella, either for real or more likely in his mind palace

it’s sherlock’s nightmare that not only john decides to cheat which is bad enough bUT HE DECIDES TO CHEAT WITH SOMEONE WHO ISN’T HIM. and then proceeds to tell him to fuck right off for something he had no control over/no way of helping

Problem in being in a lot of fandoms #256

There is no way I can show my love for all these shows/books/movies on one lock screen.
