the genius rules of the game

You know what pisses me so immensely off about this whole Eurus stuff? It has nothing to do with how a Sherlock Holmes story works and it’s an affront to say TFP was adapted from the works of ACD. because it wasn’t.

No, this is not about canonical purity (like “She wasn’t in the books!” whining). It’s about the structure of the narrative that makes a Holmes story.

Sherlock Holmes is not a magic wizard - he operates by logic. Therefore, his deductions are comprehensible and reasonable. When he explains them, people can follow through (even saying that it sounds easy when explained), they follow logical rules to determine the truth.

Now, by introducing an omnipotent, superintelligent, crazy and therefore unpredictable previously unknown factor like Eurus into the above equation, who, because she’s mentally ill and a genius, is motivated by inexplicable and irrational impulses, Mofftiss literally threw over the board. It’s not a game anymore, indeed, because this is not the Holmesian game as it has been played for decades. And perhaps therefore the chess picture was very revealing and had to be removed? Because it showed exactly this: They broke the rules (that weren’t wrong in this case because they were shown as being right and the basis of everything previously to TFP), they revoked the contract they had with the audience, that when a Holmes story is adapted, the viewer/reader has a chance to solve the puzzle.

We hadn’t a chance. And this means there’s no reason at all to write meta anymore. What is there to analyse if they can randomly introduce factors that turn everything we thought we knew upside down? Omnipotent factors, illogical factors… Unreliable narrator indeed!

They not only didn’t give us Johnlock, they also took the game away from us. They reduced that beautifully crafted, exciting show to a pile of senseless rug pulls just for the sake of it. There is nothing to analyse, no motivation to look into, no making sense of it. And that is not only true for TFP, because by carelessly interlocking the Eurus factor with previous episodes, they even destroyed the frame of reference we thought we knew and had established. Even the puzzlesolving we so loved, the cueing for looks, was reduced to an insulting rick roll with a badly done dancing men cipher! They told us to look deeper, for subtext, only to fuck us over twice.

They took everything we loved about the show and destroyed it. Why? Because a bunch of  mostly female queer teens and neurodivergent adults came up with better ideas, more progressive readings and intelligent explanations. It seems Mofftiss couldn’t deal with that.

At least now no-one will accuse them of fan service. They killed their amazing show out of vain pettiness. Steven Moffat, Mark Gatiss, how dare you call this last episode a Sherlock Holmes adaption? Just never touch Sherlock Holmes and John Watson again!

Tom à la ferme is quite similar to Killing Stalking

This is a psychological thriller film and it creep me out  . Well , maybe i’m a little axaggerated but without blood , killing , many kind of cheapy scary stuff , you can feel the fear from this film . Dolan is absolutely a genius .I’m now realizing how KS really remind me of this Film which i watched a long time ago .

As the writers and director of Tom à la ferme is a gay man - Xavier Dolan who is a young potential writer/director , Tom à la ferme is also about a gay man :

“ Tom, a young advertising copywriter, travels to the country for the funeral of his boyfriend Guillaume. There, he is shocked to learn that no one knows who he is, nor his relationship to the deceased. Guillaume’s brother Francis soon sets the rules of a twisted game. In order to protect the family’s name and the deceased’s grieving mother, Agathe, Tom now has to play the peacekeeper in a household whose obscure past bodes even greater darkness for his “trip” to the farm.  “ - wikipedia

                                      Shy , sweet and cute Tom 

The point is Francis is really an asshole . He literally locked Tom with him , he is a homophobic , an abuser . Sound familiars hah ? He is Sangwoo , only he is not a serial killer but Francis is violent . 

Through the film , you’ll see Francis emotional abuse Tom . Tom sometime try to escape . There are still some scene which was considered romantic in this movie like when Tom and Francis danced together 

Sorry for my bad language , i can’t show anything better. English is not my first language then i learned to speak French live in Paris now , my English’ve gone worse . But the movie itself is really good , amazing scene , amazing atmosphere setting . You need to watch it >.< 

Here’s To The Crazy Ones.....

The misfits….

The rebels…. 

The troublemakers…

The round pegs in square holes…. 

The ones who see things differently… 

They are not fond of the rules and have no respect for the status quo….

You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them….

The only thing you can’t do is ignore them….

Because they change things…..

They push the human race forward….

And while some may see them as the crazy ones….

We see genius. 

why the story of Molly Hooper is incredibly dangerous

(TW: abusive relationships)

Dear God. Where do we start?

@thistle-verse wrote a spot-on reaction to the final episode. In it, she says:

It was SO Moffat on his worst days and in his worst shitstainstew ideas about women and how they just can’t help themselves, can they? They’re always gonna love the emotionally unavailable asshole. Because he’s SO SMART!

Bottom line: idealizing emotional unintelligence ultimately leads to the normalization of abuse.

Dating James Sirius Would Include...

Requested

* * *

  • It would honestly be the most fun and exhilarating relationship you would ever be in
  • He would have the cunning and “break the rules” attitude like his father but also the quidditch-genius and over-all fun and sarcastic attitude of his mother
  • He would for sure take you out onto the quidditch pitch and just you both would just goof around for hours not even worrying that the sun is setting
  • You’d make up your own rules for a weird game you’d both invent
  • Late night talks in the astronomy tower because fuck it we’re all going to die anyway
  • going to his house for the holidays and absolutely loving all the chaos that is the potter-weasley family 
  • meeting Harry Potter and being totally star struck but also trying to play it cool
  • which just results in you tripping over your own feet and James catching you - making Lily and Harry go “Aww” which turns you both bright red
  • thinking it’s lovely how close James is with his siblings - even if Lily Luna does spy on you both whispering “kiss kiss kiss kiss” 
  • “Lily you know we can hear you right?” 
  • “No you can’t! But you guys should kiss” 
  • Becoming quite close with Lily Luna and being a sort of sisterly figure whom she looks up to. 
  • Also - weirdly enough for not only James but for Albus as well - somehow becoming close with Albus when one night you find him crying in an empty classroom because he feels like he doesn’t fit it
  • “You know y/n, sometimes it’s like you’re closer with my family than I am”
  • Writing to Ginny sometimes because not only is she the most bad-ass person you have ever met but you actually get on really well with her despite being the age of her eldest son. 
  • You and James Sirius being the ultimate couple goals in Hogwarts
  • You being confused as to why literally everyone knows about you two until James admits that “When you said you’d be my girlfriend I ran into the Great Hall screaming “SHE SAID YES”.”
  • You being completely mortified yet also finding it hilarious when McGonagall approaches you saying that you’d better watch out because she knew the boys your boyfriend is named after
  • James Sirius abbandoning the stupid “bros before hoes” motto and completely putting you first before his friends
  • You never being more in love with someone in your whole life

Der Untergang drinking game

Last night Smrzj and I watched the extended 5784694673-years-long version of the whole world’s favorite nazi movie Der Untergang and created a cute little extremely handy drinking game for it. I’m gonna share its rules now because secretly we all know nothing enhances the experience of watching a high-quality WW2 movie like a good not too complicated drinking game.

The only equipment you’ll need for this genius game are Der Untergang movie (shorter cut is okay but if your aim is to get shitfaced as fuck and a terrible hangover is everything you want for the next day I’d warmly recommend the extended version) and a SHIT TON OF BOOZE.

AND HERE, THE ULTRA SIMPLE GOLDEN RULES OF THE GAME:
Take a sip of your beverage every time when
- someone makes a furious hitler salute
- a swastika cloud symbol appears
- someone gets shot/commits a suicide
- Goebbels children sing their asses off
- Hitler gets mad as fuck (aka FEGELEIN FEGELEIN BRINGEN SIE MIR FEGELEIN)
- the name Fegelein is mentioned
- someone smokes

AND THAT’S IT. Might sound too simple but believe me, it’s anything but. At certain point the movie basically turns into a huge killing/dying/shooting/smoking/FEGELEIN party and you’ll find yourself busy drinking yourself to death. Try at your own risk etc. etc.
