[HIGH-PITCHED HUMMING NOISES]
I just have absolutely zero interest in talking to dishonest people, I don’t even care if they’re compulsive liars or people who like taking advantage of gullible people or who pull pranks all the time or people who make everything into a stupid contest oh my god I don’t even care about your fucking calm and collected veneer I give zero fucks about your one-upmanship
all I care about is talking to people and talking about things we’re interested in like you tell me about your passions and I’ll tell you about Sherlock Holmes adaptations and we can discuss religion or philosophy or whatever
but if you’re an arsehole who makes everything into a contest and mocks people for having emotions and is always trying to find weaknesses in people so you can be better than them or show off or put them down then I don’t even care I will just mock your grammar and walk away I have zero interest in hanging out with the facade of a person
- mum: you know, you're really lucky you buy so many men's shoes, because they're usually such better value...
- me: yep, that'd be good old sexism happening again
- mum: no, no, it's because women buy so many more shoes! men only buy a few pairs, so they expect them to last, whereas women --
- me: no, mum, I'm pretty fuckin positive that it's sexism
- mum: but men aren't really interested in buying --
- me: no
- me: mum
- me: listen to me
- me: s e x i s m
hey hey guys remember that one time John had explosives strapped to him and snipers aimed him but he still held back a homicidal criminal genius to try to give a man he’d known for a matter of weeks a chance to escape
I read a fic with a ‘Sigerson’ reference in it and now I’m unbearably sad oh dear
fffffffffffffffffffffffffffff respect for your characters’ emotions is one of the most important things IF YOU DON’T PAY DUE RESPECT TO YOUR CHARACTERS AND THEIR ARCS AND TRAUMAS AND JOYS AND DEVELOPMENT THEN I HAVE NO RESPECT FOR YOU lookin at u moffat yeah you and your mysteriously-disappearing-PTSD and dealt-with-in-one-episode divorce
Every time I think I am over my butthurt bbc sherlock feelings I see a post like this and I just go ugh.
Togas, please never stop posting these.
shit yes, thanks for pointing that out
there is honestly no doubt that John should still be going through that, maybe intentionally making him ingest a drug which makes you terrified and paranoid WOULD NOT… BE OPTIMAL… FOR AN EX-SOLDIER??!??!?
but naw, that’s cool, because our manly man-heroes don’t have emotions or mental health issues, because they’re straight manly man-heroes who only have feelings when its beneficial to the plot or all about the man-hero’s progression
not when it would just be an interesting, realistic, and respectful addition to the character (and particularly not when that character is the sidekick)
