I drugged your coffee. Let's have dinner.
you know who would have made a great American Watson?







Hey Sherlock, get over here, man.

I found some

Fresh Prints.

Now this is a story all about how

My life got flipped, turned upside down

And I’d like to take a minute, just hold my Glock

I’ll tell you how I became the friend of a man named Sherlock







i think we all agree that with s3 in sherlock something in the perspective shifted. s1 and s2 were about john telling sherlock’s story to the world. s3 is about sherlock himself without john’s gaze to soften and filter and uplift.

but what i wonder is why

Agree 100% with everything above. I also think that it was important for the audience to see John specifically through Sherlock’s eyes. We’ve always been John, and seen Sherlock as this almost mythical, otherworldly creature - beautiful and almost unreachable in many ways, even as close as their bond is.

We got a more real Sherlock this series, true. And we suddenly had a much different John, because we saw him as Sherlock sees him. I don’t think it was an accident that S3 John was about 1000 times hotter and BAMFier than he’s ever been. That’s what Sherlock sees. John was also, to the dismay of many of us, seemingly a lot dimmer and slower to figure things out than he was in S1 and S2. Because that’s also how Sherlock sees him. He loves him, but he’s basically an idiot. John Watson will save your life, he’s got a heart as big as an ocean, he’s WISE, but not necessarily that smart. At least in Sherlock’s estimation.

So we got to see sides of both of them that we haven’t before, which was critical for character development. Especially if Johnlock really is endgame here, it’s so massively important that we understand both of them, and get to see the love and admiration that Sherlock truly has for John, which had been relatively obvious before, but now we have pretty irrefutable confirmation.

I do hope in S4 we return to John’s POV and see some of how he was feeling during this really traumatic and transformative period of their relationship.

Preach it. All of this. And they know their job, because it’s been really really well done. 


I really want s4 but I still have war flashbacks from Antiques Roadshow tbh

To borrow the immortal words of Garth Algar, fandom is like a new pair of underwear. At first it’s constrictive, but after awhile it becomes a part of you.

This has nothing to do with whatever is going on in the Sherlock fandom right now but I can’t hold this in anymore: During certain scenes in season 2 when Benedict’s neck is a bit bulkier, he reminds me of David Hasselhoff. (The rooftop scene in TRF, and the “I’ve only got one” scene in HoB.) I dislike this association.



Like, HOW IN THE WORLD, one of my most favorite movies, PILLOW TALK, and Sherlock, too? Awesome-sauce.

We got a dramatic reading of this by mydwynter in the hotel bar at 221b Con and I thought I was going to be sick from laughing so hard.
