I am always amused when I hear people talk about Benedict Cumberbatch making Sherlock Holmes sexy.
Let me explain you a thing.
I am not kidding when I say that young Sherlock Holmes was one of my first crushes.
And this fellow…
Shipping is such a strange concept. You fall in love with people falling in love.

can we talk about how this fucking pbs show aimed at little kids easily talked about how anxiety is stressful but normal
Ok no but can we talk about this entire episode?
It was called April 9th, and it was actually a response to the 9/11 attacks. It didn’t talk about the attacks themselves, but rather focused on teaching kids to deal with the all of the emotions that they might be feeling as a result. They set up a situation that might evoke similar emotions in children: a massive fire at the school.
Arthur’s dad was in the fire, so (as you can see above), Arthur is constantly worried about his dad’s safety.
Sue Ellen is grieving because her journal, which contained a huge amount of precious memories, was destroyed in the fire. Muffy is confused why she can’t just cheer Sue Ellen up by giving her a new journal.
Buster wasn’t at school that day, and feels confused and guilty that he isn’t sad about the fire like the other kids. He then befriends the school janitor, who has to retire due to an injury that, at his age, is pretty serious.
Binky actually saw the flames, and is constantly traumatized by the event. He doesn’t tell anyone because he feels like he would lose his tough-guy reputation if he admitted that he was scared.
The episode teaches kids that all of these emotions are perfectly normal and natural, that there’s not one right way to feel, and that even if it takes a while, things are going to be okay.
The thing that makes this show so great, in my opinion, is that it knows that kids are intellegent and strong enough to deal with these things if you present them in the right way. It doesn’t hide them, it doesn’t sugar coat them, it just presents them in a way that children can understand and shows them how to deal with them.
"love is a much more vicious motivator" sherlock says and then goes on to restart his heart for john watson, shoot a man for john watson, and risk spending the rest of his life in prison so john watson could be happy
There’s a saying somewhere about the heart growing fonder when someone has been away.
Sherlock was not one to keep up with such idioms, and he was quite sure that he did not have a heart.
But things have changed, and time has passed.
At first, he thought the phantom pain in his chest had been a side effect from the fall; something psychosomatic, possibly from the stress of all that’s happened since then. It wasn’t until a cold evening in Siberia amid the civil twilight that Sherlock realized, as he stood over the body of one of Moriarty’s top snipers, that the ache was because he missed John. He missed John, he needed John, he wanted John to be able to look at him at the end of this ordeal and say ‘it’s alright. You aren’t a killer, you are wonderful. You are extraordinary. You are brilliant.’
‘You are Sherlock, and I love you.’
For Sherlock loved John. x
Since I’m not doing the angstlock book anymore, I thought I’d start posting the pages I did do for it. So here’s two of them =)
