gorgonetta replied to your photoset: This is why I love Granada Holmes. The attention… Wait what episode was this? I have never seen this one. The episode is called The Master Blackmailer. It’s from The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes, so one of the really late episodes.
annotated-em: popularmechanic: anedumacation: That’s the thing, gay subtext doesn’t actually mean that the couple in question is queer, no matter how hard one might ship it. Fanon isn’t canon. For those of us who are pretty deeply immersed in fandom, we blur the lines, because we like fan-created material more than the official creations. Canon doesn’t mean half as much to us as do the...
You know what I would like? A modern adaptation of Sherlock Holmes without the gay jokes.
This is what I think about when I can't sleep
I want a giant Cabaret crossover with all my other fandoms, an AU set in Berlin in the early 30s. Hagrid would be the bearded lady. <3
tofslan: too-ticki: tofslan: acid-eater: “Odin Nipon” Magazine featuring Reinhard on its cover. Wow! o_o I… I…. WHAT is going on with his lips? I KNOW RIGHT? I just keep staring and going “wait, what…”
Tumblr: America needs to stop being racist and sexist, pay more attention to women and PoC ok
CBS: Hey guys guess what we decided Watson should be played by a Taiwanese, female actress in our version of Sherlock Holmes
Tumblr: NOOOOOOOOOOOO YOU CAN'T DO THAT HOW DARE YOU I AM BOYCOTTING YOUR SHOW I HAVE NEVER SEEN THIS IS THE WORST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED

tofslan: bienenwolf: too-ticki: bienenwolf: Nooo, I don’t want thiiiiis. Why can’t you just do those things because you’re a good and honourable person who’s preconceptions have been challenged and dismantled through the last 20-ish episodes? Nnn this is where someone calls me unromantic generally but I can’t help it this makes me so uncomfortable. T___T Huh. I always thought of this...
If anybody does marry you it will be for the pleasure of hearing you talk piffle– Strong Poison by Dorothy L. Sayers
I suddenly decided to catch up on Hellsing Ultimate. I’ve been thouroughly reminded why I stopped following it. I’m sitting through hours of awful and stupid to get to a few moments of Integra and Alucard. Seriously, who enjoys these amounts of gore? ;;; The good thing? When tofslan woke up in pain in the middle of the night I entertained (or tormentented?) her with my theories...

My girl has written me fic about a character from an obscure space opera wearing his mothers dresses. And it’s not crack. I am so lucky. *sappy* tofslan: Teenage Reuental tries to avoid examining his feelings, with limited success. With warnings for… all of Reuental’s many, many issues. For Too-ticki, who knows what she likes. AKA The Crossdressing Fic (that wasn’t crack). Yes. ...

Pop culture stress. So many books to read. So much anime to watch. So much to learn. ARGH.
dragonitehugs: why isnt there an anime about trans magical girls
It has begun
tofslan: I am officially writing this thing. Writing reuental as a woman delights me, honestly, more than I can say. So excited. *vibrates*

Fuck everything, I’m watching Brideshead Revisited.
So far this year the blinds have collapsed in 4 windows. Without warning. Any moment now the doors will fall off the kitchen cupboards and then the sky will fall.
Trigger warning - physical violence
Went back to Glass Mask, which I haven’t touched in weeks, and so far the following has happened: our inexperienced and insecure lead character has been convinced to star in a theater competition, against the greatest theater talent of our times! rehearsels have been going on around the clock for 5 days straight, everyone involved collapsed as soon as the last line was spoken physical...
Two languages in one brain? No one can live at...
Not exactly the first person to ever rant about this, but I need to get it off my chest. The thing is, not everyone has English as their first language. Depending on level of proficiency we may mess up sentence structure, spelling, grammar and punctuation. This may bother you but try to understand what we’re trying to say. Helpful pointers can be appreciated, but rudeness never is. If...
Stress Impacts Good Parenting →
Good parenting requires psychic resources. Complex decisions must be made. Sacrifices must be made in the moment. This is hard for anyone, whatever their income: we all have limited reserves of self-control, and attention and other psychic resources. In that moment, fretting about the deadline, your psychic resources were depleted. Facing pressure at work, you did not have the freedom of mind...
