casual reminder that if you are a Sherlock fan Arthur Conan Doyle would HATE you and everything you stand for.
“If in 100 years I am only known as the man who invented Sherlock Holmes then I will have considered my life a failure.” - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
the original Robert Pattinson
sO APPARENTLY CHINA WENT TO THE PRIME MINISTER OF ENGLAND DEMANDING MORE EPISODES OF SHERLOCK AND I AM LAUGHING SO HARD I CANNOT
And some Supernatural fan was like “OMG YOU WIN THIS ROUND”
But really, guys…
Neither of you “win”.
Because neither of the shows have ANY Queer main characters.
And that’s a huge problem.
Please make this happen people! Spread the word!
Guys, please, PLEASE don’t do this.
I know it won’t take off fully, because there’s no way the fandom won’t celebrate new content in that way, but please don’t even consider participating in this.
As someone who has studied media, I CANNOT STRESS ENOUGH HOW IMPORTANT RATINGS ARE TO THE FUTURE OF A PROGRAMME. If the initial reception of series 3 is too small, not only might we not get a 5th series, but the 4th series might be decommissioned.
Furthermore, the writers have lives! The directors, producers, cinematographers and editors have lives! The actors have lives! They all have personal lives and work outside of Sherlock and Benedict’s career is really taking off at the moment and THEY DO NOT HAVE TIME TO WORK OFTEN ENOUGH TO RELEASE SERIES MORE OFTEN. Stop blaming the creators for scheduling issues. It’s ignorant and childish.
DON’T DO IT FANDOM
Are you serious, fandom? Are you SERIOUS? Y’all are childish as heck, these people don’t have to do ANYTHING for you and yet they are. They’re HUMAN. They have their own lives, they have other stuff they’re working on, give them a darn break! You’re all being ungrateful children at this point, grow up!
Why is this even being considered a thing? Wow you had to wait a while for a new series. Be glad it’s being made at all. You try making a series with top actors while managing other productions within a short range of time. If some ridiculous people decide to go through with this to ‘make a point to Moffat and Gatiss’ well go ahead because that will literally be roughly 100 meaningless examples while the rest of the fandom, which will be a huge number, reblogs pics and gifs to their hearts content. Try as much as you want to make this ‘a thing’ but this really will not happen.
My reaction to all the Doctor Who/Sherlock posts on my dash over the past 24+ hours:
IT MAKES ME UNCOMFORTABLE THAT HIS NAME IS HANNIBAL AND HE IS A CANNIBAL.
It’s like if Sherlock’s name was “Hetective”
or if Dean’s was “Helf Hoathing”
should we just get everyone on tumblr to post the werdest stuff we have to scare away yahoo
im looking at you Sherlock fandom.
here we come
bring the crack au’s
supernatural fandom you’re up next guys
Basically the big three trying to figure out what the heck is up with this new fandom.
