Holmes: Watson! My fucks, please.
Watson: Holmes, I don’t think you have any. We used them all on the last case.
Holmes: well, there you have it. I have no fucks to give.
The opening of basically every interview Sherlock Holmes grants to people requesting his help. (Usually after a few minutes he finds some spare fucks in the couch cushions.)
Watson then usually looks disapproving until Holmes finds them, then neglects his practice/wife/life while he helps.
This is also quite true.
WATSON! HOLD MY FUCKS!
Sherlock Holmes and the Adventure of the Missing Fucks by Sir Arthur “Here’s another fucking Sherlock Holmes story, ffs” Conan Doyle.
This is beautiful.
we’re sherlockians. we’re good at finding everything.
except how sherlock faked his death we’re still working on that
That last comment ^^^^
"Never underestimate the element of surprise, John."
The Sherlock fandom is starting to go off the rails.
I would like to take this point to indicate that I never was ON the rails. Thank you.
We have rails?!? When did that happen?
Apologies, fellow Sherlockians! Upon closer inspection, it turns out that for some reason the tickets for the midnight premiere aren’t on sale?? But there’s a “Fan Sneak” showing the night before at 11pm, so I’m shifting the meetup to that showing instead.
Please take note of the changes below:
Star Trek Into Darkness
AMC Metreon San Francisco
WEDNESDAY, May 15th @ 11pm in IMAX 3D
» BUY YOUR TICKET NOW «
Tickets are assigned seating, and the seat I highlighted below is the one I bought for myself. :)
To compensate for the extra cost of buying an IMAX ticket, I’ve made some adjustments to our pre-show dinner plans as well! Rather than going out to eat, I think it’d be fun (and cheaper) to have a potluck instead! We’ll have a little hotel party. :) I’ll bring fandom teas and muffins and caprese salad. Bring a little something to share with a handful of people, and I’ll provide the plates and cups and utensils. :)
We’ll be meeting in the Union Square Hilton (333 O’Farrell St.) Lobby @ 3pm.
Since seating is assigned, we don’t really have to wait in the theater, so we’ll probably just head over around 9:30 or 10pm to give everyone enough time to get snacks and settle in. We’ll hang out, play Cards Against Humanity, and maybe watch a movie or something on a laptop in the hotel room until then. Even if you’re not staying in the hotel, you’re welcome to hang out there with us before the movie. :)
Let me know if you can still join us on Wednesday instead of Thursday? If so, I’ll be contacting you directly about payment for the hotel room (or if you’re gonna crash with littleselfia instead). Price will be $15-20/person.
Hope to see you there! Leave your replies here, please?
I am SO THERE. We will have blankets and pillows enough for a Blanket Fort in one room, and the other room will be a sleepy time/early workday room, so either way, we can totally accommodate you!
(Also, I am bringing scones and jam or cheese bread balls, or maybe both.)
OH! Joanie, do I need to bring my electric kettle again?
this is for the elementary tag
and all those lovely people who come into it from time to time to share their lovely opinions with us
As it should be.
The sets are being re-assembled
The scripts are being sent out
The actors are preparing
The pigeon is going to London
Sherlock fandom strikes again.
Photo with 5 notes
It was too perfect to hit reblog and ruin the note counts.
Because 5 in Thai is said Ha, and right now I am going HAHAHAHA, oh, it will only get MORE insane in this fandom now as we gear back up for the release of season 3.
So this just happened. I honestly don’t think we’re even ashamed of ourselves.
this is the fandom I’m debating joining…
atleast I know I’ll fit right in with the creys
You should join us. Just be careful, or you’ll fall quickly.
Counterintuitive, that was cruel. But funny.
Because in the end, Arthur Conan-Doyle hates us all equally.
and that is the most beautiful part of all.
THIS. Yes. We Sherlockians, no matter how we came to be fans of his works, should understand that the Author of the core works would tell us off for all the energy we pour into celebrating Sherlock. And we should get along and do awesome things just to celebrate being a part of the oldest fandom- and continue to fly in the face of it’s horrified and angry creator. Because Sherlock and John live on, separate from their creator, because of US.
Especially back in the day. He tried to kill them off so many times it wasn’t funny. :P
New headcanon: Nobody at Scotland Yard knows how to flip the water bottle onto the cooler without spilling, so they never have water to drink. The detectives just stand around the water cooler staring longingly.
Did a post about a water bottle in the background really just get more than 1000 notes in under three hours?
Oh, fandom. Never change.
I SHOULDN’T FIND IT HARD TO STOP LAUGHING AT THIS BUT I CANT HELP IT
I blame Anderson.
I BLAME ANDERSON.
I BLAME ANDERSON.
“Anderson, why isn’t the water cooler set up?”
“I can’t figure it out!”
“Christ, do I have to call Sherlock for everything?!”
A water cooler has 22k notes.
This Fandom… XD
So I know that everyone’s been crying about Sherlock 3 being pushed back another few months.
But just think about how much more deranged the fandom is going to become as a result.
The more bizarre we become, the more fun I have on tumblr.
My thoughts exactly!
insane doesn’t even come close!
Recently I’ve been disturbed to see BBC Sherlock writers Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat receive extremely rude tweets from people on Tumblr. It’s absolutely not the first time this kind of thing has happened to any celebrity; the fangirl stereotype has been around for a long time for a reason. However, it saddens me to see people being disrespectful and crossing the line.
I decided to write this to Mark Gatiss, Steven Moffat, Louise Brealey, and Lara Pulver (and to the rest of the cast and crew) in hopes to show them that the fandom does not just consist of the extremist fanperson and that we do love and appreciate everything they do.
I am not in anyway condemning the fanperson lifestyle. I love being a fangirl. I love reading every type of fanfiction, staying up late with friends to watch a show or movie, making our own art out of cannon, bouncing and flailing like a hyper-bunny in excitement over something that happened, wildly speculating on what’s going to happen next, shipping, reblogging the flawless fandom art created by people here on Tumblr, etc. My fangirling is absolutely an expansion on the stories that I love.
What I refuse to do is to go overboard with it. I will never be intentionally disrespectful to anyone in these fandoms, cast and crew included. Our fandom is based on their collective art. While they might occasionally want to hear what our thoughts are about their show, we should never shove our fandom in their faces. They have their own ideas on where their story is going. They are professionals who have their own legacy that they’re trying to create. Frankly, I feel like a series looses its intrigue when it gives itself completely over to the fans to placate them.
I want to know what their story is. If I’m not satisfied wholly with it, I’ll go read or write my own fanfiction or I’ll make a gifset or something. I will not attack the writers and actors for not taking the story where I want it to go.
Theater and writing is about having your own voice. About having the courage to tell a story that might just provoke thought.
So, please, be respectful of everyone in this fandom. Don’t dehumanize the very people who bring us their art.
Thank you. Thank you all for sharing your creativity and filling my life with its beauty.
And there is nothing more to say.
There should be a WELCOME TO THE FANDOM pack handed out to all new Sherlockians. Especially those who frequent Tumblr. It would have all the usual warm fuzzies but ALSO.. THE GOLDEN RULES. These are, as follows.
1. DO NOT REBLOG PHOTOS OF MARTIN AND AMANDA’S CHILDREN.
2. DO NOT REBLOG PHOTOS OF IAN AND MARK’S WEDDING.
3. AND I DON’T EVEN WANT TO SEE THRILLERBATCH ON MY DASH.
We are not trying to be spoil sports, this is a privacy issue. They don’t want them out there for good reason and we should respect that.
Some new folks honestly don’t know. So make sure to be nice about it when you point out they need to delete it. :)
Also, if reblogging to say NOT to reblog, you can Reblog as a text post and it removes the picture. :D
