“It’s worth saying – because we never get the opportunity to actually say it. The whole notion, the idea of them possibly being a couple is inspired by the joke in the Billy Wilder film The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes, our favorite version. And we thought that was a good idea to run with that. In the 21st century it wouldn’t be an issue. People would just assume. Maybe we’ve done it too many times I don’t know. That’s all it is.  

He explicitly says he is not interested. Doesn’t mean he couldn’t be. Doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with it. I’m a gay man. This is not an issue. But we’ve explicitly said this is not going to happen – there is no game plan – no matter how much we lie about other things, that this show is going to culminate in Martin and Benedict going off into the sunset together. They are not going to do it. And if people want to write whatever they like and have a great time extrapolating that’s absolutely fine. But there is no hidden or exposed agenda. We’re not trying to fuck with people’s heads. 

Not trying to insult anybody or make any kind of issue out of it, there’s nothing there. It’s just our show and that’s what these characters are like. If people want to do that on websites absolutely fine. But there’s nothing there.”

SDCC 2016: Sherlock & A Case of Sexual Identity

Thomas tries pickup lines
  • Thomas:Hey Newt, did you fall from heaven?
  • Newt:Yeah, and somehow ended up in hell. Go away, shuckface
  • Thomas:Hey Newt, is that a mirror in your pocket?
  • Newt:Nope, it's a knife
  • Thomas:Hey Newt, is that a banana in your pocket or are you just-
  • Newt:It's a banana. Doctor says I need more potassium
  • Thomas:Hey Newt, if I was a superhero I wouldn't be Iron Man, Batman, or Superman. I would be-
  • Newt:A really shit superhero. Get back to work, greenie
  • Thomas:Hey Newt, are you from Tennessee because you're the only-
  • Newt:Bloody stop this whole thing, Tommy. If you wanted to take me out on a date, all you had to do was ask

In 1960, during her divorce to Sir Laurence Olivier- her partner for the past two decades and also the man who she left her baby daughter and first husband for- Vivien Leigh declared, “If I were really and truly given the chance to live my life all over again, I would be certain of only two things. One is that at an early age I would become an actress. The other is that at not a much later age I should marry Laurence Olivier- and do the proposing myself if necessary. I would want to do everything again, except the last few months.”

Do you have a view on this article? www (.) withanaccent (.) com/2016/07/27/sherlock-a-case-of-sexual-identity/ ? It is making me very sad - it seems so earnest a denial. I am sad.

(Article)

Okay, so this must be the thing everyone is upset about right now. Hmm. 

Yeah, you know what Nonny? This sounds NOTHING like our dads and it COMPLETELY contradicts the atmosphere and attitudes of everyone at the con and EVERYTHING that they stand for and EVERYTHING that they have been trying to do since TAB. Ask yourself this: Why the hell would a gay man queerbait in a day and age when you no longer need to? Honestly, it’s quite ridiculous, if you ask me.

I do not know for 100% certain, but I have learned from @vanetti  that there are reports of people asking for the transcripts of the so-called interviews and requesters are vehemently blocked AND past articles on the site are problematic (post 1) (post 2) (post 3). The author’s twitter is rather distasteful as well, very childish behaviour for someone who is supposedly a media professional. AND Vanetti has responded excellently here, so read that.

Until I see some proof from more reputable sources, or the context within which these quotes were written, like the Guardian or Independent, I’m going to take this with a grain of salt. One negative article out of the entire positive vibe of the weekend isn’t going to dissuade me, nosiree. Honestly, I have written WAY too much meta and analysed the SHIT out of the subtext of this show to believe anything other than Johnlock is the intention of Mofftiss. Do Mofftiss say problematic things? Sure, they’re only human. But a journalist who refuses to cite sources is highly suspicious to me. I’ve worked in news for 10 years – that kind of shit can get you into all kinds of trouble.

I think we can all relax now because this is real. Even the media is accepting it now. We don't have to be anxious anymore if we don't see them together.,These two mega stars would not be together if they didn't want to. When was the last time you heard of a celebrity of Taylor's stature basically drop her own life, family and friends to follow her man all over the world? I mean she has a 'squad' doing squad things and now she sees no one really but Tom. This is very serious for her. Him too!

yup, very true. i knew the media would come around and you’re right, no one is really calling it fake anymore which is a nice change of pace

anonymous asked:

My ex doesn't wanna be with me, so I let her go... But I keep thinking about her.. What should I do?

thats tough man, if she doesn’t want to be with you the best thing was to let her go so you did the right thing. thinking about her is totally normal as you’re still getting over her, i would say to try and move on you need to keep a good circle of friends around you and go out and have fun, whilst also keeping yourself busy to avoid the breakup blues; so stuff like reading, writing or learning music, doing sports etc, don’t worry, you’ll be over her before you know it <3

The thing about spoons is that you can't accurately measure exactly how many spoons you have any given day, or how many you use. You have to estimate/guess, and that stresses me as an autistic person, as I feel like I need to know exactly how many spoons I have (and I can't know for certain.) It's the same feeling as when I need to know my schedule for the day and what's happening when. I love the concept of spoons, I just wish I had an exact number so I could make a chart or something.

Oh man, I wish we could predict spoons. It would make things so much easier. It’d go like this: How many do we have today? How much will each activity take up? Careful planning is about to take place so we don’t exhaust ourselves (and that planning just took up a spoon).

anonymous asked:

I understand your passion for equality. But do you believe that some things should traditionally be done by the man. E.g. you said you would say no to her proposing, is that because you would like to. Or just because you dont want to get married?

I mean I would say yes if she was the one, but its just that ive had things planned out about how im going to propose since like middle school. So id still want to surprise her

I cheated on my boyfriend.. It was in the beginning of the relationship.. Weve been together two months now.. And he just recently found out about what i had done.. He almost left me.. But didnt.. Yet everyday i feel lost with myself because i know i hurt him.. Im in love with this man.. But they say that two broken pieces can go back together. There will always be a fracture from the break where you put the two back together again.. If thats so.. Should i stay or should i go..

You’re lucky that he didn’t leave. I would, no matter if I loved that person or not. You love him now, so why do you think of leaving him? Be happy that he gave you a second chance. Things won’t be like they were, but you both can make it work if you try.

“i’m expecting the same annoyed ambrose like we saw him the last time on TD. It’s nothing new that he hates it beeing followed by cameras”

And yet the girl that claims to be dating him and says that “they’re so in love” agrees to be on a reality show. I’m sorry, but if I’m dating a guy who has shown his hatred for camera’s and reality shows on more than one occasion if I got asked to be on a reality show I would say no. Even if I wanted to do it out of respect for my man I would say no, I couldn’t make him go through it knowing he’d be angry and miserable.

But this is Bitchnee we’re talking about, this child has not the slightest clue what respect really is. If she did she wouldn’t of done all the offensive things she has and made up this fake fantasy relationship with Dean and use him to get the fanbase she has now.

She wants to be famous and live the Hollywood life, wait until Total Divas comes out and people start to nit pick at her and point every flaw she has like they do with all the other reality stars. She’ll be crying to Dunn wanting to be taken off Total Divas, we all know she can’t handle criticism. She’ll start crying playing the victim.

Random but what's your favorite thing about aph Denmark, since you love him so much~ thanks

Probably his personality! I’m not gonna go straight for looks because being honest with you, I liked Norway before him actually but Denmark’s personality was what made me pay more attention to him. 

He’s such a caring guy and he just wants his family and friends to be happy even at the cost of his own like goddamn the man just wants people to be happy. He just seems like the kind of guy who would do all he could to cheer you up and that’s what I really like about him.
