aaaaaagh is this even fanfic? like, since i *can’t* write bbc-consistent fic anymore, and now sherlock’s wearing bike leathers (and uses his ducati more than he does cabs) and irene’s played by candis cayne and JOHN DO NOT TURN BLACK MARTIN FREEMAN’S MOUTH IS THE WHOLE POINT shit i’m just writing my own modernization of acd canon amn’t i shit shit shit.
oh. wow.I want, more than anything, a John to go with this Sherlock.
i’m just going to keep reblogging this, possibly every day forever. i can’t even explain how much i love it - it’s like a glimpse of the ‘reality’ behind the very imperfect projection of the bbc show.
INTJ: I came out to have a good time and I honestly feel so attacked right now.
back in season 1, they were saying how, if you didn’t have sherlock, lestrade would be the guy you’d want solving your case, cos he’s a great guy, smart, driven etc etc. of course, then they got bored producing quality and decided to go for the lolz instead.
Steven Moffat talking about possible Sherlock spin-offs
While I’d love a Lestrade spin-off, clearly we have rather different pictures of the Yard’s competence. And really, for the sake of my blood pressure, let’s just leave it at that.
This is why I have lost nearly every tattered shred of respect I once had for the showrunners of Sherlock. They don’t fucking understand the source material they are getting their characters from. Hurr hurr hurr, Lestrade and Watson were idiots, Holmes was hated by everyone, and hates moustaches.
i leave them up because some people, like you, might enjoy reading them. i’m not inclined to destroy them (and the lively comment threads attached) or the finished works (and their even livelier comment threads) just because i dislike the direction the show took *after* i’d written those stories.

i will say this for ‘sherlock’: i’ve been consuming sherlock holmes, canon and adaptations, for lo these 41 years (seriously can you believe that?) and this is the first time i’ve ever experienced the “i think it would better if holmes and watson had never met each other, they’ve destroyed each others lives” reaction. so, kudos for originality, i guess.
