Newest pet peeve: “I don’t watch the show, but I like the fandom.”

Bonus pet-peeve points for creating fanworks for such fandoms (super bonus if these are items for sale).

Reblog and spread the words. We are now officially a Cumberbabe.

*note: gif is not mine

You know what? I dislike the Cumberbabes epithet applied to myself, and I bristle at any attempts to put us all under one fan nickname umbrella. I actually don’t mind Cumberbitch when applied to myself (or when used as a verb, ex. “There goes Emily, Cumberbitching again about how long she has to wait for Star Trek Into Darkness to come out.”) But that name doesn’t work for others for various reasons, and I understand that. I would expect others to grant me the same respect regarding the reasons Cumberbabe/Cumberbunny/etc. doesn’t work for me.

As a Benedict Cumberbatch fan, call yourself whatever you want, regardless of what ANYONE (even BC himself) says, and fuck the haters.

reasons why Steve Thompson is MADE OF GOLD BRICKS:

  • HE WROTE FUCKING REICHENBACH
  • NOT MOFFAT
  • THIS DUDE:
  • HE ALSO WROTE THE BLIND BANKER AND WHILE AS A STANDALONE EPISODE IT ISN’T THE BEST
  • HAVE YOU THOUGHT ABOUT HOW THEY RELATE
  • HAVE YOU
  • SHERLOCK EATING ON THE CASE? GOT IT. 
  • REALIZING THEY’VE MADE THE WRONG MOVE AT THE ENDING? GOT IT.
  • THAT PARALLELISM, JESUS CHRIST
  • AND IF YOU HAVEN’T READ THAT GENIUS GRIMM FAIRYTALES ANALYSIS
  • FUCKING STEVE THOMPSON
  • HE’S THE MAN
  • HE’S SO COOL THAT IT ACTUALLY MAKES ME WANT TO CRY
  • FROM A STORYTELLING STANDPOINT, TOO
  • THAT RULE OF THREE
  • STEVE THOMPSON HAS SO MANY THREES IN REICHENBACH THAT I JUST. MIGHT. DIE. THREE BULLETS. THREE GUNMAN. THREE VICTIMS. THREE IOUS. THREE LETTERS IN IOU. THREE BREAK-INS. THREE ASSASSINS. AND THERE ARE MORE, I PROMISE YOU. AND THIS IS ACTUALLY. REFERENCING. SOMETHING.
  • AND DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT’S REFERENCING?
  • FUCKING FAIRYTALES
  • STEVE THOMPSON BRINGS SHERLOCK’S CHARACTER ARC TO A HEAD
  • STEVE THOMPSON PUT JOHN BAREFOOT IN 221B
  • STEVE THOMPSON WROTE “NOBODY COULD BE THAT CLEVER” “YOU COULD”
  • STEVE THOMPSON WROTE “YOU WERE THE BEST MAN AND THE MOST HUMAN HUMAN BEING THAT I HAVE EVER KNOWN AND NO ONE WILL EVER CONVINCE ME THAT YOU TOLD ME A LIE. SO… THERE. I WAS SO ALONE, AND I OWE YOU SO MUCH.
  • ONE MORE MIRACLE
  • NOW PEOPLE WILL DEFINITELY TALK
  • WHAT DO YOU NEED? YOU.
  • ALL THE CLUES THAT YOU’VE BEEN PICKING APART?
  • THOMPSON.
  • SOMETIMES I JUST SIT AND WATCH THE BLIND BANKER AND THE REICHENBACH FALL BACK TO BACK
  • AND IT’S WONDERFUL
  • HE’S SO AWARE OF THE CHARACTER’S
  • IT’S SO AMAZING TO SEE HOW FAR THEY’VE COME
  • IN TBB SHERLOCK IS SURPRISED TO SEE THAT JOHN CAN FIGURE STUFF OUT ON HIS OWN AND IN REICHENBACH SHERLOCK PULLS “THE FACE” BECAUSE HE ASSUMES THAT THEY BOTH KNOW WHAT’S GOING ON
  • THAT
  • IS
  • PURE
  • PERFECTION
  • AND IF YOU DON’T LOVE STEVE THOMPSON
  • I DON’T LOVE YOU.

this has been a public service announcement I’m very sorry for any inconvenience I may have caused

STEVE THOMPSON YOU ARE THE CAUSE OF MY PAIN

Yeah, I agree the characterization is solid, but he’s still on notice as far as I’m concerned.

John Watson’s psychosomatic limp was in his right leg.  He got shot in the left shoulder.  And his eyes are BLUE.

Thank you, that is all.

Also, to non-UK fic writers in general:

  • We have electric kettles;
  • We have electric kettles;
  • Our kettles? Electric;
  • I swear to God if I read one more fic with them boiling water on the bloody hob I will scream until I’m hoarse;
  • WE HAVE ELECTRIC KETTLES;
  • Sherlock uses it in Reichenbach! It glows up blue when it’s switched on! 
And another aside, which doesn’t happen as often, but it still happens:
  • Neither Sherlock nor John would avoid medical treatment because they don’t have insurance. They don’t need insurance. They have the NHS and you know, John’s a doctor. IT MAKES ME CRY SO HARD WHEN YOU STOP THEM GOING TO THE HOSPITAL. It makes me want to scribble on my screen with red marker pen and ask you to come and see me after class. 

Just use this, okay? Easy peasy.

Love, a fellow stupid American foreigner.

Some of you may be catching wind of a story about some state level Michigan Republicans huffing and puffing because a female representative said the word “vagina” on the floor of the House.

Ignore this story. It is a sideshow.

Instead, please turn your attention to this guy. His name is Bruce Rendon, and he is a state representative from a tiny little backwater town in northwest bumble-fuck Michigan with a population of less than 1000.

Bruce Rendon is not an evil man, just a simple one. He has an associates degree in how to draw a straight line. He’s in the construction business just like his daddy used to be, and his idea of a god-fearing good time is judging dairy cows at county fairs. That’s fine. The world needs men who pin prize ribbons on cattle, but those men should not be given the power to legislate complex bioethical issues, because that’s how wars on women get started.

You see, this pointy-headed numnard recently introduced House Bill 5711, a ham-fisted piece of legislation that’s being called the nation’s worst anti-abortion bill. All the ridiculousness on the floor of the Michigan House is a direct result of this ignorant piece of draconian drivel.

It’s unsophisticated men like Bruce Rendon who in their righteousness are fucking things up for the rest of us, and though he may not be an evil man, that doesn’t make him any less an enemy, and I personally believe it’s always a good thing to know your enemy’s name.

Go fuck yourself, Bruce Rendon.

Should we name that sticky, sometimes slimy substance that gets left behind on your dildo or rabbit vibrator after fiercely masturbating with it in my empowered, free, liberal vagina after this guy?

And in case you were still wondering why I left Michigan, here’s yet another reason.

He wrote ‘The Blind Banker’ and ‘The Reichenbach Fall’ for BBC Sherlock. 

We don’t talk about him enough or give him enough love.

So this is me, giving him some love for being an awesome writer. You go, Steve Thompson. 

Except that I can’t, because “The Blind Banker” is dripping with Orientalism, Asian stereotypes, and inaccuracies. I’m an Asian Studies scholar. You really think you can put all that in front of me and have me accept it without question or criticism? Ha ha NO.

I still love you, show, but seriously, two minutes in the penalty box for “The Blind Banker.”

Michigan Republicans have ILLEGALLY passed over 96% (546) of their bills using an emergency loophole

It’s much, much worse in Michigan than we even realized

Last night, Rachel Maddow broke a huge story that has been happening since Republicans took over in Michigan in 2011 and has gone completely under the radar. Since January 2011, 566 bills have been signed into law. Of those, 546 of them, 96.5% were passed under “immediate effect”. Click through for the video from last night’s show. Pay particular attention to around 12:30 where they show it in action. It’s astonishing.

but, but, but, DEMOCRACY

Wow, that’s terrible.

I think for this fact alone, Michigan is getting +5. Sort of a “the whole damn system is wrong” criteria I’ve decided to add.

What’s that sound? It’s the sound of my own keening wail.

I am not here for your amusement. I hear your honks and your whistles and your catcalls. It’s not cute; it’s not funny; I am not flattered. You are seriously harshing my aloha spirit. Please stop.

Sincerely,
