what “corrupted the youth” before comic books, films, TV and video games came along

*ahem* I thought it didn’t matter to Sir ACD what happened to Sherlock Holmes books? Or was it just character?Also, when I started reading this, I thought it was going to lead towards how it might have inspired people to go to Reichenbach Falls and maybe how that increased incidents of suicide or accidents, and hence the books were considered menace. But apparently it was just “moral corruption”.

Probably Sir Arthur didn’t want his character besmirched by being associated with all the lowbrow “fan fiction”

Anyone wanting to know more about my fight with armscythes can see it under the ‘how to make’ tag on my LJ.

Part One of the Coat Pattern Photoset Here

The original post, with the side by side comparison shots of my coat and Sherlock’s.

I changed my url, and now all my old links are gone because someone grabbed the old url. Like, wow - that fast!

Anyway, old links to the post aren’t working, so now I am reblogging some of my own old shit, SORRY FOLLOWERS, it’s just so people can find it again!

“I don’t want people to like her anymore, almost, that sounds really, really bad.I want people to realize that actually she’s not the same anymore. You can’t root for her forever, because she’s not there to be your favorite character. That’s not what she’s there for. She’s real. People go down bad paths and they make bad decisions, but it’s always justified in their head. I want the audience to differentiate that and not just be like, ‘Oh, it’s Arya, we love her.’ Because actually look at what Arya’s doing. She’s being eaten away from the inside out, and she’s not stopping it.” - about Arya

Finally finished the companion piece to Watsons are less concerned with The Game so I put references to their lore in a more obvious place. Can you spot them all?

most of the people I know who watch the show sherlock ship johnlock. Now that John and Mary are canon, they are more comfortable with sherlock remaining single and sticking to being asexual, rather than seeing him end up with Irene/Janine/Molly. Another friend I know who is an adlocker and believes that sexuality is fluid anyways, thinks that the rest of then are borderline misogynists for thinking this way. I don't think that's the case though, everyone has their own pref. your thoughts?

I can’t even begin to unpack this, especially the “sticking to being asexual” part. I’m sick and I have to leave for work in 20 minutes.  If someone else wants to tackle it, please do so. 

Anon, you and many others in this fandom seem to have a massive misunderstanding of what asexuality is.  Asexuality is lack of sexual attraction.  That’s it.  That’s all.  Sherlock’s asexuality alone has no bearing on whether or not he can engage in a romantic relationship with another person.  Furthermore, if he decides to be with a woman, that does not mean he’s suddenly switched to being heterosexual.  He could be shagging Molly against the wall every night and still be asexual.

For further clarification, see this post.

Why are we playing games? London’s terror alert has been raised to critical. I’m just passing the time.

"Miss, do you really expect me to believe that you accidentally burned your house down with an orange peel?”
"Uh, it looked cool on the internet?"
