Seriously, the writers essentially gave Sherlock William Scott Holmes to us.
Moffat and Gatiss completed their part in his story, and set up each happy ending that we could want. Now, it’s up to us all to make that happy ending into the story we all want to see. No one’s end wasn’t real. No lies were told. All I Love You’s and texts and caresses gave us all exactly what we wanted and they were all as real as we want them to be. Sherlock belongs to us now.
Steven and Mark are finished telling the story they wanted to tell. Now it’s our turn to continue that into whatever we wish. Don’t talk yourself out of your happiness. We all deserve our happy endings.
I may not represent my whole fandom, but I do know this: The ones who care for the show will not back down. At least not until you give us some respect alright.
Here are some common things I’ve seen:
“We’re the bigger fandom, and you’re the smaller one, thus you get out of the tag” translates into “We’re the bigger kids, thus we’ll take everything”
Look, I know Sherlock is a bigger fandom, I actually like Sherlock. But you guys should hear yourselves saying that alright? Transformers Prime may be a small fandom, but we’re a strong one. We like Transformers Prime just like how you like Sherlock. What would you do if let’s say a bigger fandom stole your main tag? Wouldn’t you protect te tag and fight for it?
Which leads to te second statement I’m seeing: “Transformers is just robots what’s the big deal” well congratulations, Sherlock is just about some egoistic manchild detective. OH BUT WAIT! This isn’t what Sherlock is about is it? No. It’s not it’s much deeper. Just like how Transformers Prime is much deeper then just transforming cars. It’s about loss and war, and getting over death. It’s sacrifice and virtue, and the questioning of the morality of a civil war that occurred centuries THAT DESTROYED THEIR HOMELAND.
“But it’s just some cartoon right? So what’s the big deal?” Do you know how much animation cost? It isn’t something that some amateur can do. No. It’s frames of frames of repetitive work that consumes time and energy. It’s a work that is admired by artists because of how much dedication they put into a show about “just transforming robots”. You guys claiming that it’s a cartoon we shouldn’t complain is just insulting. Alright?
Please. Please understand this. We just want the TFP Tag to stay with us, just like how you guys would if someone took your tag. Alright?
genuinely pleased about Sherlock’s small-kitchen deduction. And once you know
she’s his sister, you would like to believe that she’s just delighted by him.
When she says he’s not what she expected, he’s nicer, I wanted *so badly* to
believe that, because it’s what I believe about Sherlock Holmes, and it’s
probably what Sherlock Holmes would love, so very much, to have a person say to
him, in the midst of all the rejection and blame he’s getting from all corners
at the moment, and it’s so devastating to have that rug pulled out like that.
This show is brilliant so often because you get the feeling Moffat and Gatiss
really know exactly what we want to happen and uses that expectation to walk us
into their traps. (Which is why aspects of this episode were so annoying to me,
but that’s for a later point.) And then she’s in cahoots with a villain and
holding a gun on John Watson so…yeah.
maybe that whole miss me? thing was never moriarty to begin with, it was eurus the whole time but just used moriartys face because she knows it will get sherlock attention. I mean what else would you say to your sibling that haven’t seen for how long “miss me?”
now the question is why is she here? or will Sherrinford be involve in the next episode? could it be possible that Eurus knows Moriarty or could possibly worked with him? or is this some big scheme for there supposed sibling rivalry?
*pacing the flat, rocking his son; yawning* Alright...alright, you win! You can come with me on my cases.
*making coffee; scoffs* I don't think so.
*desperate* It's been an hour, Hamish *sighs* Fine, I'll buy you a car, you can play with John's gun...I'll even give you the entirety of Mycroft's liquor cabinet if you let Mummy and Daddy sleep.
*chuckles* I'd prefer for you to take him on your adventures *places his coffee on the table*
*rests Hamish on his shoulder; smirks* I knew you'd come around.
*relieved* Oh, thank God. Don't move...I'll get some blankets *hurries to the bedroom*
*rolls his eyes; to the baby* Thanks, son.
*returns wiht the blankets and baby monitor; sets them on the sofa* Be careful. Don't wake him up!
*gently lowers to the sofa; sighs* Oh, I'll be fine, don't worry about me. Excessive time spent sleeping on the sofa, not to mention supporting our tiny human-
*kisses his forehead* I'll massage you in the morning. Fair?
*ruffles his hair* Happy Anniversary, handsome.

i’m fucking fascinated what people think would make sherlock “canonically” gay?? is him saying in the first episode that women aren’t his area not enough? him rejecting every single woman who tried so much as looking at him is not enough? moriarty putting on a twink persona to flirt with him is not enough? him reciting a love letter to john is not enough? him on knees ass up with semen like vomit on his lips is not enough?? will him finally kissing john not be enough? being with john still not enough? moffat and gatiss proclaiming to all that will listen that tplosh is their biggest inspiration, a film where sherlock is canonically gay, is that not enough?? does he literally have to stare straight into the camera and proclaim “i am super gay” for people to finally accept that he’s gay???
like i am all for outspokenly gay characters who say they’re gay but there’s also a need for those who are a smidgeon more subtle, like you know real people who don’t go around wrapped in a rainbow flag telling strangers they like it in the ass, and drawing these arbitrary lines in the sand is tiresome, stupid and sometimes just fucking homophobic
Sherlock would be your messy friend. Like you’d be like, what happened to Sherlock. And someone would say, Oh Sherlock had an idea after dinner, so he jumped into a dumpster, and now he’s digging through the trash. And you’d laugh nervously like, Well that does sound like him, but I’m starting to feel like I should do something.
