*takes a deep breath* If you tell me
that that is not sexy,
I WILL FIND YOU SSSSKIN YOU.
Not. Even. Fucking. Paget. Drew. Him. Anything but sexy.
[insert long erudite meta about how holmes is clearly coded as female (dark, cerebral, mysterious, musical, prone to collapse etc etc etc) and utterly the object of watson’s (and therefore the readers’) gaze from minute one. he is not merely ‘sexy’, he is presented as *desirable* (in some not-very ambiguous sense of the word).]
mostly i’m interested to see that moffatism is apparently contagious through extended exposure.
and other times the whole ‘human consciousness shoved into a meat suit and thrown into the world with no instruction book’ thing just seems like a really stupid idea.
Lookie what came today!!!! So excited.
so, i’ve seen several versions of this - people using john’s ttobb id number on a tag but including ramc as well. and it always makes me smile because in ttobb of course john’s not in the ramc he’s in the royal marines, but because i’m me his *id number* is an ramc number, it’s not a royal marine number. so, when people flip him back into the ramc, that makes the number right (tho not for his rank - if you want to make it more canon compliant, drop the last digit. ttobb john started as enlisted which is why he’s still got his eight digit number).
Hello! So I'm on chapter 6 of ttobb (after hearing many, many good things about it :) and I'm having a little bit of a hard time following the plot. This usually happens when I read things. :P but I'm just not clear on where john found the bodies and where the four men were found and what the Americans really had to do with it and why mycroft was concerned? So basically the whole thing. :P thanks so much!
<p>hahaha. okay, so, john found the bodies of the women and children in one house, on patrol, and the men’s bodies were (supposedly*) found in another house in the district, but they’re all one family. you’re only on chapter six, you’re not meant to know who did it or why yet. at this point mycroft’s concern is a) it’s disgusting and b) it’s very elaborate, as sherlock says, it’s not just simple sadism, and mycroft wants to know why it was done and who are these men who are important enough to be murdered in this bizarre way.</p>
<p>* i can’t remember whether chap 6 includes sherlock figuring out that report has to be a lie
Does anyone know if there is anyway to stop/limit commercial posts on tumblr? Because I swear if I see ONE MORE FUCKING OLAY COMMERCIAL I’m going into hunt someone down. >:(
ooh thanks for the awesome gif of the lionesses driving off the lion, i’ve been looking for something like this forever :D
coffeeshop au where hannibal owns a coffeeshop called ‘cup of joe’
where jack crawford stops off for a latte every morning while investigating a string of disappearances, in which men called joseph are snatched from their homes, and the only evidence left behind is a handful of extra dark roast coffee beans.

dude i desperately need to change mine, i’m not even writing that story anymore, but i never get round to doing anything about it.
So I have come down from the high of BBC Sherlock and am venturing into other Holmeses. Namely 1954 American series and the new Russian series. Ohgod it is so refreshing to watch these! After all the angst over what characters are feeling and angst over…
I have nostalgia for the older pastiche but they are all in Narnia until TPLOSH and Granada. So I welcome the angst of BBCSherlock as at least we are talking about the elephant in the room. I become frustrated with the older versions myself.
dude i find the howard one pretty damn slashy - they clearly adore each other, and watson always gets so flustered by women’s attention, i read it as his wanting to shoo them away so as not to upset his holmes, but not knowing how to without raising questions. and holmes gets all cool and faintly offended until he has watson to himself again.
Jimmy Stewart at race track with Robert Montgomery and Basil Rathbone, 1940
rathbone’s like ‘no, no, number two is a fairchild on the distaff side, it’ll never make it down the straight - weak in the shinbones you see, the lot of them.’ jimmy stewart’s all ‘wtf english guys. whatever. fifty bucks on number six, it looks like it’s gonna try.’ meanwhile, montgomery’s just like ‘i think i see my drug dealer over there bye’.
