I love this because you can read his lips and look at his hand gestures and just know he’s saying “Oh look it’s daddy, hiiiiii!!” and who the fuck says that to anyone without using a patronising baby voice?!
So really; Sherlock is using a baby voice to try and teach Rosie works and hand signals so she responds well to him and isn’t that just some fine character dovelopment RIGHT there
every single character in your room. All of them. Every single one you have ever read about, watched, imagined, created. All of them putting you to sleep. All of them surrounding your bed and protecting you from all harm with whatever kind of weapon or defense technique they have. They are all there for you. You are safe. And I think that is very very comforting to think about.
Check out this gorgeous mirroring in TBB, the episode that never fails to show you something you hadn’t seen before… note the mannequin behind Andy in the background, looking like Soo Lin (Sherlock’s mirror), reaching out to Andy (John’s mirror), through glass <3 <3 <3 (Read this mind-blowing piece of meta about the character mirrors in TBB if you haven’t already)
I mean disagree if you must I don’t really care aha. I’ll try to add more when I think of them, just wanted to get this out since I said I would write a list. I got lazy on why I think these things and kinda had a moment where I went “wait why am I even explaining myself. I don’t give that much of a fuck to explain myself.” so yeah. Enjoy.
1)Sherlock Holmes – Why you ask? Because Sherlock is just
too cynical to be from any other house. A lot of people think he’s a ravenclaw
(which he could be!) but nah I don’t believe so. Sure Sherlock is smart AF but
he’s not like other smart people. He’s cunning and clever and just so Slytherin
it hurts. (SIDENOTE*** I do believe that brave John Watson is in fact a
Gryffindor. But he’s more like “aye that’s my favorite Gryffindor, John!” than “Ew
Gryffindors” ya feel?)
2)Kayne West- Do I really gotta go over this? Sorta obvious.
3)Jim Halpert-100% Slytherin. Well maybe 98% but close
enough. His constant pranks on Dwight (who is arguably a Gryffindor) is just so
… Slytherin? Aha sorry but I don’t even have the patience to argue this, it’s
set in stone in my mind.
4)Doctor Gregory House-This is another one of those that
doesn’t need explanation.
5)Mare Barrow (Red Queen Series)- I don’t know what it is
about her… But Mare just reminds me of a Slytherin. Just something about her is
so badass ya feel me?
6)Robert Downey Jr.- I’m not sure if I have to explain this
one because come on :’)
7)Ariana Grande- Not a big fan of her, but she’s just very
like mean girl Slytherin (even though I know she’s probably a very sweet girl,
just like the way she looks makes me think of like a mean girl lmao)
8)Hugh Jackman- Totally. Couldn’t see him in any other
11)Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier- There is just something
about him that is so Slytherin (you could probably argue Gryffindor as well…
12)Jyn Erso- I’m a multi fandom nerd and I 100% am so for
this. Jyn is such a strong lead character that takes no shit.
13)Princess Leia- Completely and totally a Slytherin.
14)Zuko (Avatar the Last Airbender)- I know this doesn’t
help the whole “villains are not Slytherin!!” but like he gets a redemption at
the end (sort of last season). So to me he’s like a good mix of “bad” and “good”
15)Lestat De Lioncourt (The Vampire Chronicles)- He’s a mess
and that’s amazing. Also he’s kind of the stupid (he’s not stupid I know but he’s
just like… a dumb blond which I find hilarious) mean Slytherin.
16)Louis Tomlinson- Louis William Tomlinson is for sure a
Slytherin. He’s just like the popular outgoing kind of Slytherin (they exist
lmao), but he can just be so savage/sassy.
17)Anne Boleyn- Fucking queen (literally and just as an
adjective) as fuck. She’s especially boss and Slytherin-y in The Tudors.
