The Universe is getting chronically LAZY with all of this coincidence. Not sure how to post a pic, but Rachel Talalay changed her Twitter header to some sort of diagram of a "cut scene" from her Sherlock episode. When someone asked her to identify what it was, she had the DP of the episode answer. She changed it before he saw it, but his answer? "Damnit! Missed it! Guessing it was a highly detailed and comprehensive representation of the transition between scenes 13 and 14? ;-)" Giant Shrug™
Oh yeah, Nonny? Hmm. Yeah, all these coincidences are making me So Tired™. I mean, Logic Steph says it was probably an honest mistake on Rachel’s part and she quickly wanted to rectify it. Tinfoil Hat Steph, though, is banging pots and pans screaming “RELEASE THE EFFIN’ SPECIAL ALREADY”.
Just an FYI, you can submit pics through submissions rather than asks (I believe anon is on for that too :))

Did you see the Sherlock Twitter pinned "Not 🐝🐝🌊" / "Not bee bee sea"? RIP
Anonymous said to inevitably-johnlocked: So Twitter accounts confirmed that they’re not bbc. As I don’t think they’re lying (why break the 4th wall then?) my last hope just died a very painful death. I guess mofftiss and the whole Sherlock crew don’t comment on the 4th series much because they genuinely thought TFP to be their best episode. In this case just imagine how shocked they are by everyone’s reaction. So shocked and alarmed, they didn’t even send “the perfect” TFP for Emmy and avoid Sherlock talk like plague😭
Yeah, I saw that, though there are mixed stories about the context to it. I don’t know for certain since I don’t really follow them except whatever is posted here on Tumblr.
Personally, I have always believed that the twitters were probably 50-50, so I’m not really all that surprised. But then there’s always the issue that TPTB lie all the time. BUT then why would the BBC put out for all of this? A million different questions and things that may or may not add up.
I don’t know, with the current direction that the twitters are going (the Victor Trevor jealousy crap) kind of gave it away for me as a fan-made twitter; it’s a trope that’s highly prevalent in the fandom, so I’m not really surprised. BUT they’re still lovely, and I don’t think that we should stop enjoying them (well… maybe we can enjoy them again after this stupid dead-horse Victor bullshit). This was literally the one and only time I recall them “breaking the fourth wall”, and really it’s not a shock to be honest – as a tinhatter I like to maintain a level of skepticism about EVERYTHING. Don’t let it get you down; the fan(s) behind the account clearly just want to make people happy after the fallout of S4. That’s really not a bad thing, in my opinion.
That all said, re: the second ask: Well, really we shouldn’t be surprised… Mofftiss thought it was a fantastic episode, then the general public HATED it, and decided on their actual best episode of the season since it was the one more praised and had a better shot at a nomination… that would be my guess. It still bothers me that they’re STILL so radio silent on the whole thing, and I think it’s one of the reasons I’ve still got a shoe stuck in the tin-hat camp.
Anyway, TL;DR – we knew the RP accounts were suspect from the beginning, so it really isn’t a surprise that this all came out. But I understand why there’s upset about it; some saw it as a final hope. I am sad that y’all are sad, truly I am, but I hope you can still enjoy what they are trying to do – provide a canon-feeling Johnlock ending to a series that didn’t deliver.
Okay this is quite literally why I hate having This Discussion on my blog considering how my inbox just imploded a little. Let’s just peel back the door of reality for a sec and say Your Fave Is Prob At Least A Little Gross. Yes, you too, your Unproblematic Fave probably did at least one (1) gross thing in his life
Tbqh I don’t know who is and isn’t a Tr*mp supporter when we’re talking hockey players. Considering how there’s varying degrees from “We should be chill and love everyone and respect the government” blind complacency to full-blown “I wanna suck Tr*mp’s dick” love. Where we draw the line is up to us, but there’s kind of a reason why I don’t go digging through players’ social media
People keep saying that they find the contact-twitters to be incredibly in character but I've honestly never thought so? I obviously mean no disrespect to anyone I actually came to believe I kinda just misjudged their characters completely. I don't know, most of their tweets (especially recent ones) seem very far fetched and don't sound like their voices at all to me. This has been bothering me for quite some time now, I just wanted to get it out. What do you think?
Personally? I think they’re very much in character; as someone who METICULOUSLY studies the characters of both John and Sherlock, these are the sides of the characters that they only show glimpses of on the show. They’re EXACTLY like they are on John’s blog, which is OFFICIAL. PLUS, have you READ the one and ONLY OFFICIAL-THAT-WE-KNOW-OF TWITTER ENCOUNTER from the actual writer of the blog, Joe Lidster, during the #SherlockLive event? Like, I think it shocked a lot of people to see just how sassy Sherlock really was in-universe (Telling Miss Piggy that Kermit was busy with Sherlock? C’MON. IF THAT WAS ANYONE ELSE BUT ON AN OFFICIAL ACCOUNT, WE WOULD HAVE THOUGHT IT FAKE). I feel they’re very in character, so PERSONALLY, the RP blogs are a bit fucky too me because of how exclusive the content is, and how very in-canon it feels, at least for me.
BUT that’s my thoughts, and possibly I’m biased. I mean, there are people who hate S3 because they think Sherlock is OOC, because a lot of people refuse to RE-READ the series as a whole after S3 and see JUST HOW TERRIBLY SOFT AND FUNNY Sherlock really is, and how much he uses his over-confidence as a shield. John too… you can just read the blog and see that the “feel” of the blog (John’s sassiness, mother-henning, grumpiness, and love for Sherlock) is slightly different than what people THINK John is like.
It’s all about our personal reading of the series and characters, Lovely. If you don’t think they’re in character, that’s fine – no one’s asking you to believe it. But I implore you to read the entirety of both John and Sherlock’s blogs, read that Sherlock Live twitter stuff, and then go back to the RP. It feels very much in character to me, even if it’s not official (which I, for the record, am 50/50 on. It’s the time, dedication, and exclusivity of photos and locations that have me side-eying it).
