Since you no longer write BBC Sherlock, does this mean you won't be continuing Mirror, Mirror? :(
I will be finishing it, once I get the drive to do so. I have gotten a disgusting amount of hate from people over that fic, because they have a fandom influenced, incredibly skewed view as to who John Watson is. Because of fannish jokes about Kittens and Jam, an alarming number of people have actually started to view Watson (in any adaptation) as being the fluffy, empty headed duffer that Nigel Bruce had given us. They think he is soft, and innocent, as opposed to being a gun slinging, bed hopping, chair threatening baddest badass to ever politely sip tea. Yes, Watson doted and fawned like lover over Holmes and his abilities. He also got drunk and yelled at him, gambled away half of his money, and was occasionally a bit of a dickhead. Welcome to the world of an Unreliable Narrator, everyone. Where John H. Watson views himself as a moron, but does forensic pathology as a hobby, and can become an expert in Chinese artifacts overnight.
Sorry, that got a bit away from me there. A number of people in fandom (any fandom) have developed this mentality recently, that they are owed things. They have given up filtering themselves. And it is making me never want to write again. It’s frustrating, and distressing enough, getting messages demanding something be written in a different way. But I don’t want to write for a group of people for whom telling someone to kill themselves over a disagreement about interpretation is now seen as not only a common response, but one we need to brace ourselves for.
My dad would tell me that when we were little and people would say to him “wow, four daughters, that’s a lot of weddings to pay for” (because traditionally the bride’s family would pay for the wedding), my dad would respond with “well, we’re hoping at least one of them will be gay so we can split the cost with the other bride’s family” He said people never knew how to respond
All I want is a long multi chapter completed, perfectly written, in-character angst fanfiction of my otp which includes a lot of smut and a little bit of fluff but a really good plot line with no grammatical errors idk man is that too much to ask?
gay marriage is only legal in 18 countries but being gay is a crime in 83 countries like i’d literally be breaking the law just by LIVING in 83 countries in the world but yeah go on tell me again how “homophobia isn’t even a big deal anymore” thanks
“The only person that should be pardoning anybody is him. Hopefully, the film will bring to the fore what an extraordinary human being he was and how appalling (his treatment was). It’s a really shameful, disgraceful part of our history.”—Benedict Cumberbatch saying something we should keep in mind as we get excited about the film (via cinemaseas)
Sherlock takes to calling John "love," especially when they're just puttering around the flat. When John goes back to the surgery after days off, it sometimes takes a few attempts for his coworkers to get him to respond to "John."
what if mycroft let sherlock have his last night in england back in baker street after he shot magnussen. And john spent that night with sherlock. sherlock tries to act as normal as he can, walks over to the window to play his violin for john for the last time, and after making it…
