Sherlock being all caught up in a case that spans over a few months, not noticing that he needs a hair cut until his bangs are continuously getting in his eyes. however he goes to a Very Specific stylist for his hair and he’s too preoccupied with the case to make an appt so he just pulls his bangs up in a lil ponytail on top of his head so he can see
John comes home to see Sherlock like that in front of his microscope and can’t help but just stop and stare at him, a small bemused smile and fondness in his eyes as he waits for a possible explanation until Sherlock looks up, brows knitting together in a confused frown, having forgotten what he did to his hair “what? What are you staring at, what is it?”
the evening continues and at one point John gets a picture, to Sherlock’s continued confusion, until they’re going to bed and Sherlock catches his reflection in the mirror as realisation dawns moments before he goes after a laughing John until they inevitably collapse in a tangled heap on the bed and John says, between kisses and breathless giggles, “no, really. it’s sexy. Really sexy. You should do it more often.”
I opened up Tumblr to this… lovely… barrage of anons.
I’m sorry you don’t care for what I ship, but: let me ship what I want
Let me repeat it for the people in the back, front, and everywhere: Let me ship what I want.
Sorry that you have to resort to attacking bloggers based on their choice of ship. Sorry to hear that you think I’m homophobic. (I’m not. I just happen to like Molly and Sherlock together and none of that is homophobic, coming from a asexual/biromantic person). Go ahead and block me, it’ll help the negativity surrounding my blog. I don’t send death threats to you, so why would you do that to me? I don’t need people telling me who or what to ship. I’m good on my own.
I don’t need people telling me what I should/shouldn’t ship. I’m perfectly fine on my own.
So this is a message to the Sherlock fans: don’t send hate. If you want to argue a ship, at least do it with respect. Wishing people would die because they don’t share the same opinions as you is, quite frankly, ridiculous, sad, and horrible.
Anons, if for some reason, you’d like to continue this ‘conversation’, do it off-anon so that at least it will be private. Please stop sending hate, and let me enjoy the show in peace.
Did we talk about how Sherlock is willing to kill a man again to spare the people he loves the guilt of killing an innocent (4th GIF)… and that Eurus knew he’d actually do it for them… Eurus knew he’d do anything for John and Mycroft…
I know you’re an Army doctor, and you’ve been invalided home from Afghanistan. You’ve got a brother worried about you, but you won’t go to him for help, because you don’t approve of him, possibly because he’s an alcoholic, more likely because he recently walked out on his wife, and I know your therapist thinks your limp's psychosomatic, quite correctly, I’m afraid. That’s enough to be going on with, don’t you think? The name is Sherlock Holmes, and the address is 221B Baker Street. Afternoon.
is it just me or does poor john always end up with something strapped to his chest whenever he wears this coat? here we see a life changing, ship sinking, unpredictable and highly dangerous object, ready to detonate each moment and release destructive material, such as a blast wave or gas, and the other is a bomb
I hate those arguments about how johnlock (BBC Sherlock) is more “revolutionary” than joanlock (Elementary) because they dismiss joanlock as “the same old shit” for being a “straight” relationship vs johnlock’s “gay” relationship and completely ignore that Joan is a WOC and an interracial “straight” relationship is different from a romance between a white woman and a white man.
East Asian women in (what society sees as) man/woman relationships in media is very different from white man/woman relationships. Many of these romances fetishize EA women and rely on racist tropes or turn them into racist caricatures through the “dragon lady” or “submissive doll” stereotypes.
Joan Watson is not (from what I’ve noticed anyway) like this. The friendship between her and Holmes doesn’t make her into less of a person and a potential romance between them isn’t going to do that either.
A complex friendship between an East Asian woman and a white man where the East Asian woman is not fetishized is rare. You can’t dismiss joanlock for not being “revolutionary” when EA women have very few opportunities to see ourselves in any sort of relationship on screen where we are not dehumanized/sexualized/etc.
Yeah, m/m relationships in media are important. But you can’t call a ship between two underdeveloped white male characters “revolutionary” while dismissing a non-fetishistic relationship between a Chinese woman and her best friend as “the same old shit”.
