if they were portraying a love story between mary and john from the beginning of s3 then they wouldn’t have had sherlock interrupt john’s proposal or have sherlock be the only one in focus with his hand on john’s face after pulling him from the bonfire or have the entire…
The Great Game (Jim’s POV)
Actual events on that pool encounter.
Dammit wrong door.
I’m taking this as a compliment to Elementary.
Not Featuring A Dude Who Makes Rape Jokes is `100% a compliment.
Not mayo on white bread.
Not a show helmed by a dude so racist he regurgitates Yellow Peril conspiracy theories circa 1898.
Not a show that reduces WOC to antagonistic shrews/wilting lotus flowers but rather casts a WOC in the lead to totally pwn a white British supervillain that tries to reduce her to a ‘mascot’
Not a show that constantly queerbaits its viewers and mocks them for daring to interpret the characters as anything other than cishet men.
a show featuring 100% canon trans and gay characters that handles them like real human beings
a show that turns misogynistic tropes on their heads
a show that calls its white male protagonists out on his shit
a show with an adaptation of sherlock who praises women
a show with flawless writing that showcases how women actually act
do i really need to go on
not a show that features orientalist ~chinese music~ every time joan watson is on screen
not a show that fetishizes lesbian women and has them fall for the straight white man
Currently my favorit Destiel gif! It makes me laugh
Dean: Just do it, Cas. Come on!
Cas: Well, okay then *sigh*
Yea it’s clearly our “generation that’s making homosexuality a trend.” Seriously, pisses me off when people say that. look at this! It’s always been around, it’s not a trend, it’s real. It’s beautiful.
These are really beautiful images.
History Lesson: In America from about 1700-1920 there was a social rule that said that women did not have a sex drive. According to men, all women ever were asexual and only ever had sex because their husbands wanted it and as a good doting wife they would open up for him. That said, lesbians flourished in this time! Because it was believed that women did not have sex, when two women would share a house and finances together (called a Boston Marriage, look it up!) nobody thought anything of it. Because clearly they werent homosexuals since clearly women were incapable of being independently sexual. The more you know!
My mom wants to Boston Marry her best friend because both have been single for a long time and frankly her friend would benefit enormously from moving out of her parent’s house but you know, some people just don’t want to accept change….
i hope tumblr staff is preparing for the day johnlock becomes canon because we’re going to burn this website to the ground
I don’t even watch this show and I’m fucking crying.
- the bbc research
- an enormous number of romantic tv-tropes regarding john and sherlock
- the scene at angelo’s (which would just be absolute unnecessary otherwise..why even bring up their sexualities at all?)
- 3 seasons + a minisode without clarifying the sexualities of the 2 main…
Some tumblr buddies have been discussing how to explicitly write a character as unmistakably ace/aro, and though I don’t have any clear-cut answers I do have some ideas to throw around that could be useful:
(note, this is to my fellow ace and aro writers, not a…
