A normal conversation between my dad and I about Sherlock: 

#sherlock #i do have way too many feelings about this #personal

So, my dad and I were watching TV and we saw the preview for Elementary.  

he had never heard of it, but because I live on the internet, I already knew all of the details and the controversy and the debate and the criticisms/praise and the predictions, so I was already scowling hatefully at it. He asked me what was wrong, and I derisively told him all about it. Including:

Me: And Lucy Liu is going to be “Joan Watson.” No. Just…no. I can’t, I can’t have that. 

Him: Why not?

Me: Because! The best part about the Sherlock Holmes stories is the subtle homoerotic subtext! Ugh.

Him: ….they’re gay?

Me: …I’m not really sure, but that’s what makes it FUN.

MY DAD WAS DEFINITELY JUST TALKING ABOUT THE CUMBERBUM

AND I THOUGHT I HEARD HIM WRONG OR SOMETHING, BUT NO, HE ASSURED ME THAT HE WAS REFERENCING BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH’S BUM FROM A SCANDAL IN BELGRAVIA

SERIOUSLY, ALL OF YOUR DADS CAN GO HOME, MINE JUST WON ALL OF THE AWARDS

#AND HE IS PROUD #BENEDICT #CUMBERBATCH #CUMBERBUM #I CAN'T CALM DOWN #I'M HAVING TROUBLE FUNCTIONING #IT'S THE CUMBERBUM #MY DAD KNOWS THE CUMBERBUM #OH YEAH #SHERLOCK #WHAT IS THIS WITCHCRAFT #personal

So, I went out to lunch with my dad today, and I made a comment about how a few of my friends thought that Benedict Cumberbatch wasn’t attractive (blasphemy, I know, just bear with me). My dad disagreed, but did allow that he was a bit strange looking. I accepted that, but he went on to say that Benedict’s head was kind of strangely shaped, and as I laughed and vehemently denied it, he demonstrated his point by drawing me a picture. We were laughing so hard, and the waitress just stared at us as he drew it for me on the back of an invoice for work. 
me: What is he doing with his hands?
him: He’s snapping!
me: Is he dancing? Why is he dancing?
him: He’s got a case! He does that, you know. 
me: What is his hair?
him: ….
me: Is he naked?
him: No, he’ll have clothes. 
me: Will you draw him in Westwood? No, wait…is that…oh my god, is that—
him: It’s that silk, dark purple shirt. 
me: It’s the purple shirt of sex!
him: Yeah!
And then he ordered a burrito, and I had a sandwich, and the waitress thought we were crazy, and we probably didn’t give her enough of a tip for as weird as we were.

Don’t believe the lies. Moriarty was real. Richard Brook was a fake. I’m fighting John’s war. I believe in Sherlock Holmes.  

This has taken over my life. I was so dedicated to the show before, but Reichenbach made me a real aficionado. I am so seriously considering writing these phrases where anyone and everyone can see them.

My reaction to absolutely everything today while trying to write my first Sherlock fanfic:  

#BBC #I need mental help very badly #I seriously worry sometimes #Sherlock #Sherlocked #breathing has become menial #holmes #it started with the litterbox and spiraled out of control #mind palace #this is an actual quotation #this isn't normal #personal

I believe in Sherlock Holmes. Moriarty was real. Richard Brook was a fake. 

#BBC #I believe in Sherlock Holmes #I cannot processes anything right now. #Moriarty #Moriarty was real #Richard Brook was a fake. #Sherlock #personal

I JUST WATCHED THE FIRST THREE EPISODES OF SHERLOCK IN A ROW. I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH ALL OF THESE FEELINGS. I’VE NEVER MADE THE SOUNDS OR GESTURES I DID WHILE WATCHING IT. I PHYSICALLY CANNOT ANYMORE. I FEEL LIKE I WANT TO CRY.
