Hey Sherlock fans at DashCon! Come to the threepatchpodcast meetup at 7:00 pm tonight in the Adventure Hall to hang out, eat Sherlock-themed snacks, and get a few other freebies — drinks charms with art by foxestacado, Lestrade coffee sleeves, Sherlollies, and more!

I love this because they literally pasted stickers and cheap printed out paper sleeves and called it “Sherlock themed snacks”

I hear DashCon had a lot of problems (like a lot a lot). But unless OP was actually one of the con organizers—and I don’t see anything to indicate she was—that’s not her fault.

Meanwhile, yes, those snacks are totally Sherlock-themed. Read the labels and look more closely at each snack. Every single one of them is a reference to the show or fanon. And they even went out of their way to include a bunch of characters other than the main two. So I actually do love this. In a non-sarcastic way.

Here’s something that happened in Series 3, though

If we say a recurring character is someone who has appeared in more than one episode of Sherlock and has actually been given dialogue or otherwise individually highlighted, then before Series 3 our recurring female characters were:

  1. Ella Thompson
  2. Molly Hooper
  3. Mrs. Hudson
  4. Sally Donovan
  5. Sarah Sawyer

After Series 3, we add:

  1. Anthea (bumped up to recurring with her second appearance)
  2. Irene Adler (also bumped up)
  3. Mary Morstan
  4. Mrs. Holmes
  5. Janine

So, while this post is 100% about quantity and not quality, we have doubled our number of recurring female characters. (I didn’t count Claudette Bruhl since she only reappeared in old footage, but you could if you wanted to.)

thevelvetdays replied to your post: I think maybe they’ll still revisit th…

Thank you, yes! I mentioned this in an ask to someone yesterday. Anthea and Mycroft only say that the man gave his life, not that he died, which makes me wonder if this is a case of someone going deep undercover?

Yeah, that is weird…

I mean, obviously “gave his life” in that context would usually mean “died,” but they say “gave his life” at least 5 times between Anthea, Mycroft, Sherlock, and John I think… That many people using the same euphemism that many times is suspect. Huh. Maybe Ronnie’s still kickin’?

"Welcome Home"
Here’s my last (sigh) tribute to Norman Rockwell's art for #letsdrawsherlock!
This is a pretty sentimental version of Sherlock’s homecoming. And home is not only 221B Baker Street, but the place where his affections live. Home is where his friends are.
From left to right: Mike Stamford, Mrs Hudson, Anthea, Lestrade, Angelo, Mary Morstan, Anderson, Mycroft Holmes, Sally Donovan, Molly Hooper and DI Dimmock. And obviously, before them, John Watson and Sherlock Holmes.
Here below you can see Christmas Homecoming, Rockwell’s wonderful painting that inspired me:

Is anyone else gonna talk with me about how not only is Anthea bam-slammin-bangin gorgeous beyond belief, she also seems to take care of all of Mycroft’s affairs and appointments single-handed?

People give her shit for texting all the time but can you even imagine the kind of shit she organizes? And then she has to also deal with the occasional “go pick up Sherlock’s flatmate so I can interrogate him again” at the drop of a hat?

Where is an Anthea appreciation post?

You know what, here is it.

GOD KNOWS SHE DESERVES A DAY OFF MORE THAN ANYONE
