one of the things i love about the tjlc gang, and maybe this is me just noticing this because we happen to be part of such a large fandom, is how we all have kind of different interests beyond sherlock. people talk about wholock a lot but not everyone i know is also into dr who. i feel like a lot of us have come from and continued onto a pretty large array of different interests which to me feels like theres this sort of universalness to johnlock that makes me really happy (’:
I wonder when and how the next Intimate Sheith Moment is going to go down. Like,, the creators aren’t just going to have just and only The Sheith Hug as an indicator of their closeness, especially with 6-8 seasons, so I really need to know WHEN, WHY, WHERE, and HOW it’s gonna happen, like today
Oh my god yes I need to know how survivor AU goes down
well then I guess I know what I gotta do lmao!! I won’t be drawing Jeff Probst though, partially because I don’t know how and partially because in my house the joke is that he’s actually a chaotic eldritch god that puts people an island to torment for fun … so he physically cannot be drawn.
You know where I called “bullshit” lately, in the context of Dean/Cas? When I was rewatching “The Rapture” a month or two ago - when we met Jimmy Novak.
Because Jimmy Novak is a character that HAS NO SEXUAL TENSION OR CHEMISTRY WITH DEAN WHATSOEVER. None. Nada. Their interactions are completely flat. If anything, he would punch him in the face and run away, but it’s not even personal, he would punch anybody. There is no spark between Misha and Jensen when they are Dean and Jimmy.
Which means that the romantic tension of Dean and Cas is of course helped by the natural chemistry the actors have, but it means that Misha IS ABSOLUTELY CAPABLE OF ACTING AGAINST JENSEN, AND NOT MAKE IT ABOUT UST.
Which means, this romantic/sexual tension is not Misha and Jensen, it is a part of Cas’ character and his relationship with Dean. It’s an acting CHOICE.
Dean has that with every version of Cas that is still Cas. BAMF!Cas. Human!Cas. Emmanuel!Cas. Crazy!Cas. Endverse!Cas. God!Cas.
He doesn’t have that with Lucifer!Cas or Leviatan!Cas, it is harder to see though, because these are predatory characters that are charismatic villains.
But Jimmy is the only character that really has NOTHING to do with Cas. He is a different person. And the chemistry is gone, like it was never there. But the moment Misha becomes Cas again (even brainwashed one) it’s back. Like magic.
Kudos to Misha for his acting, middle finger to everybody (actors, producers) who has been gaslighting us for the last nine seasons, telling us we’ve been seeing things.
Charlie Hunnam was emaciated and had lost 20 pounds for the last season of Sons of Anarchy (2008). During auditions, Guy Ritchie was very bothered by his look though he liked his performance and asked him 4 times during the process about his poor physique and ‘What was the heaviest he had been’. Hunnam said that when Ritchie brought up the 4th time, he knew that the physicality of Arthur was very important to Ritchie. He promised Ritchie that he would get into incredible shape for Arthur and to prove his fitness for the part, offered to physically fight the other two finalists - Henry Cavill and Jai Courtney. Hunnam told Ritchie, “Look, dude, you keep bring this up, the physicality. Its obviously your primary concern. So if you want to do away with all this auditioning bollocks, I’ll fucking fight those other two dudes. I know who they are. You can bring them both in here. I’ll fight them both. The one who walks out the door gets the job.” Hunnam won the role after this.
Charlie proving that you can take the boy out of charming, but you cannot take charming out of the boy xD
