To start: I never thought John/Sherlock would become canon. No, really. I don’t think many people do. Lots of people want it to, but I think it’s generally accepted as a relative impossibility, no matter how much we want it.
What I am here to talk about it why that impossibility is so harmful, what that says about media today, and, of course, why I am disappointed in fucking everybody.
Also: this post contains minor spoilers and frank discussion of the appearance of a certain character, so if you don’t know what I’m talking about, turn back now before you regret it.
Not okay. Never okay.
It doesn’t matter what your feelings are about Ian Hallard’s tweet or Amanda Abbington’s response or any of the shit going on in the Sherlock fandom.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re hurt or feel betrayed by what they said.
It is never okay to send hateful messages to anyone and it is DEFINITELY NOT OKAY TO WISH SOMEONE DEAD.
Please grow up, or at the very least learn some basics to human interaction.
Feel like I need to reblog this because of my unexpectedly ranty reblog earlier. There’s no excuse for this. This is why they think the whole fandom is full of shitty wackos with crazy opinions. If you disagree with someone and feel the need to argue with them directly, do it fucking respectfully.
Come the fuck on, fandom. Surely we are better than this. What the bleeding hell is wrong with some of you?
elementary is trying too hard to be inclusive
fans of a show whose writers are not trying at all (via pancakeghost)
#because how dare they try to be realistic about the world #because obviously every show must be about white straight rich thin dudes doing white straight male stuff #how dare they acknowledge the existence of different people all at once#because in real life we never see a black man and a transexual at the same place#too much diversity #the universe says #we will never find an asian american woman and a gay man at the same place #one of them must get out so the other can get in #it’s one of the laws of nature #elementary is trying too hard to be inclusive#that’s why i don’t like it #because how dare they write women that don’t apply to the box mother/girlfriend/sisters/villain #how dare they be creative about these characters #unnacceptable #i’ll stick to my shows that are moderately inclusive#that keeps me more comfortable to continue being a piece of shit
They can fucking STAY MAD. Elementary > Sherlock
Hello, ladies, look at your Sherlock Holmes adaptation, now back to Elementary, now back at your Sherlock Holmes adaptation, now back to Elementary. Sadly, it isn’t Elementary, but if it stopped using sexism, racism and female stereotypes and switched to diversity and realistic…
Woooaaahhh. Just started reading another John/Sherlock fic, barely cracked the surface of it. More of a gentle tap-tap, really. But this-this…I don’t know how to explain it. Agh! It felt like a ummmm reverse whirlpool of emotion took me over and warm tears starting welling up, making my eyes and heart ache. I love this pairing so much — SO MUCH that it hurts to breathe and sometimes all it takes is a line or gif or graphic or song or hell just an image that pops into my head, and I’m reminded of how powerful — how brilliant, fierce, dangerous, lovely, perfectly unperfect their relationship is — how much they mean to one another and it…God, it fills me right up.
