It’s just been brought to my attention that there are rumors being started and spread by manipulative members of our own meta-fandom saying that vocal bloggers are being contacted by the BBC and are instructed to be quiet because Sherlock isn’t over. My name’s come up as one of those contacted to keep the secret. Yeah, this isn’t true at all. You’re being played, again. As much as I’d love for that to be true, it’s not. No one on here has secret information from TPTB. No one. Bringing my name into it in order to gather followers to what might be the farthest-reaching conspiracy yet is actually insane. Do i believe we might get more footage? Yes i do. Do i know when? Obviously not, I’m a rando with a Sherlock blog that writes meta as a hobby. I have never supported any secret online ARG theory and I never will. I was crucified back in mid January for having the audacity to suggest the concept of a secret episode based on 50 different facts spanning 130 years of content, but now it’s totally okay for people to blindly follow fake ARGs into oblivion without so much as a thought to check the sources? What’s happened to this Fandom? Where are the priorities?
The fact that I’m listed as part of an ARG because i took a hiatus just shows how desperate fans are to believe the show’s creators and distributors care about the inner workings of a tiny online community because they are awfully quiet. I took a hiatus because Internet life is exhausting and I have pressing in-person priorities that supercede anything on here. Much like the creators of this show. They are quiet because they want to be. Because they have a lot of waiting to do.
Don’t. Get. Caught. Up. In. Fake. ARGs.
