why hasn't your Tumblr layout been updated in 89 years
D: i actually made my theme myself by just copying the page code of a friends’ and pasting in all the things i wanted to add. it’s a complete trainwreck i know. updating it for 2016 is a top personal goal for me.
Why would you obsess over a show that hasn't even been made yet? It could be garbage for all you know
Because I really like the premise of the show and I have also seen and liked all of the things that the Tin Can Brothers have created so I trust that they will create something equally as good. The thing is when you follow a group of creative people and you follow all of the shows and sketches that they make, you start to develop this trust and adoration for said group of people. That is how I feel about the Tin Can Brothers, I know they care for their fans and I know they will not disappoint me on this new project. But let’s say I watch the show and I end up not liking it, I will still watch it because I like the people making it and I will also still follow and support everything the TCB do. Sometimes you just have to take a chance on something.
You know i’m really glad to say that my interest in playing piano is coming back nicely bc i haven’t played in years and i sorely miss it. i honestly think leblanc had a bit of a part in helping me find my liking for the instrument again and that is probably what makes me the happiest, if i hadn’t started writing for her and developing her connections to music and how the piano has affected her in life i don’t think i would honestly want to get back into it haha. it’s a shock to see how much a single character can change so much in such a short time.
First of all, I’ve never written any kind of meta in my life.
Second, I don’t have a Degree in Psychology but my mother is a Psychiatrist and I checked this with her, aside of doing my own research. This topic is one we talk in daily basis but it suddenly made sense when His Last Vow came out. Though she doesn’t have anything to do with this. I’m the one relating it to BBC Sherlock.
Also, this is information that might be useful for any of you, so you might as well give it a read.
Contrary to popular belief, the syndrome I’ll be talking about, is not exclusive for hostage scenarios.
So now that we set that, why Sherlock forgave Mary?
As you might know, or not, the Stockholm syndrome, is a psychological phenomenon in which a victim express empathy and sympathy and have positive feelings toward their attacker. These feelings are generally considered irrational in light of the danger endured by the victims, who essentially mistake a lack of abuse from their captors for an act of kindness. It’s a common survival mechanism.
“And yet over a distance of 6 feet you could have easily given me a kill shot. Enough to hospitalize me; not enough to kill me. That wasn’t a miss, that was surgery.”
“She phoned the ambulance”
Sometimes to the point of defending and identifying with them.
Sherlock identifies with Mary when John asks Is everyone I ever met a psychopath? Sherlock says yes, to what he believes is identifying with Mary, even if we know that’s not true. Sherlock Holmes won’t even be a high functioning socio-path, less a psychopath.
Now, this part I always find unfair for John when Sherlock and Mary say this is what John likes. As if being an adrenaline junkie, suddenly meant all the bullshit that happens to him, it happens because he wanted it. “Why is she like that?” “Because you chose her.” That’s another way of justifying her behaviour.
It occurs in the most psychologically traumatic situations, and its effects usually do not end when the crisis ends. In the most classic cases, victims continue to defend and care about their captors. Both, victim and the author of the crime, want to come out unharmed of this situation, and because of this, they cooperate.
“Why didn’t you come to me in the first place?”
“Because John can never know that I lie to him. It would break him and I would loose him forever, and Sherlock, I would never let that happen.”
After the shooting, Sherlock tries to make sense of this and deduces that Mary has a problem she needs to fix, a case. Mary cooperates and tells them the story — the one we never hear about.
Victims in their wish for preserve their lives, try to fulfil to the attacker’s wish. Which in this case, it’s John staying with Mary. Sherlock practically forces John to forgive her and stay, shoving these explanations down his throat.
And it’s ironic. Sherlock, being such an analytical man and being victim of his own head at the end of the day.
And I think it’s incredibly accurate, considering how S3 is about Sherlock loosing control and being betrayed by his emotions. Showing how much of an human he is. Though I know it’s just a show, and I might be having too much faith on it. If S4 comes out and they are ignoring the fact that Mary literally killed Sherlock, then I won’t care. This explanation will keep being true to me.
Because that’s what we do, we have to find explanations when someone we love hurts us in unexplainable ways. We want to believe in them. And Sherlock is no different.
Ok level with me - where you at?Ball park what do you think is going to happen in the next week?
You’re all fucking insufferable you know that? Lmao jfc.
Next week is gonna be a shit show until it’s not. Nothing is going to happen until it does. The news is still not that big, comparatively speaking. The majority of the news talking about it mocking it, and there has been no typical “welcome to the world blah” articles, as there have been for michael buble’s son because of the way this shit show was managed.
So the next week they’re either going to have to announce that a paternity test was done and Louis isn’t the father, or Louis is going to be seen with Briana and the baby and the “welcome baby tommo” will start the way it originally should have.
If they continue to leave it, speculation is only going to grow and even less people are going to take this seriously (industry and media people are already laughing at it because nothing about it is right), articles mocking it will only grow. It’ll die down publicly but within the fandom it certainly will not.
If they were trying to bury it, it would have been done and completed by now. There would have been an announcement of paternity or there would be a picture of Louis holding his son. There’s no need to make them seem like a happy family if they don’t want to.
So because they aren’t going to bury it, I imagine they want it to be big news whenever that happens, so it’ll happen by mid week. Unless they decide they do want to bury it after all and decide to wait til the end of the week, which, if they fucking deal with this shit on the day Zayn releases his shit…….. lmao god.
If it goes beyond a week everyone involved should be fucking fired because this is not how you handle something like this.
