I’d also like to make it very clear that if anything happens to me before Series 4 or whenever it is we find out how Sherlock survives, I don’t want any of this feels crap from you lot. Just avenge me.
Anonymous asked: #sherlock theories You're right to be disappointed, since 3 or 4 years is far too long for answers ,but there is a big and a few small smoking guns in HLV, that TRF will have to be revisited). And the revisiting will not be awkwardly backwards, but very much in tune with HLV. BUT you have to let go completely of your fall theory. It was wrong in almost every aspect. If you do that, you might get somewhere. You were right about the Waters gang though. And a bit about the Moran motif.
Everyone who is uncomfortable with conflict needs to look away now because I have to talk to the anon and this is the only place I can do it.
Right, okay. Let’s do this. Let’s get it over with. Let’s talk about me.
If I look back at my posts since HLV with an outside perspective, I can see where you might read my blog and get I was unsatisfied with how things have gone down. But I’m not sure you’d totally get why.
marmellatadicervello asked: Do you really think that in mind palace Anderson is "the believer"? I think he is survival desire. Or just a good pathologist.
No, that’s not necessarily my interpretation, but like I said in the tags I’m just thinking a lot about Anderson. And believing. And waiting. So there we are.
every time i accidentally start to come up with a theory it just makes me kind of angry with myself now
i’m sure i’ll find a way to work through it
but that is where i’m at this morning
it’s sort of like watching someone set up a fancy domino chain reaction for ages and then they’re like, “hang on, i decided to add a couple more years’ worth of dominoes before i kick this thing off” and there is suddenly no more ignoring the literally thousands of other things you could be doing with your time
glitter-king asked: It says "ugly duckling" on the top of Mycroft's screen when he's looking at that map of Poland. What do you think that could mean?
It means “I AM SO DONE WITH THIS SHOW RIGHT NOW.”
(Okay, seriously, if anyone doesn’t know the reference because of cultural reasons: The Ugly Duckling.)
(But seriously-seriously, I am so done.)
- My Watson: So Wiggins is a bit like Sir Digby Chicken Caesar
- Me: OH MY GOD
No, wait. I do want to say one thing.
I have already been on record as believing this series has too many damn Billys.
And then they added another one.
AND THEN THEY MADE SHERLOCK ONE.
NO MORE BILLYS, SHOW.
NEW THEORY: ALL THE BILLYS ARE THE SAME PERSON.
NOTHING HAS EVER MADE MORE SENSE.
#they’ll even name the baby girl billy
And once again, your fetal!Watson theories give my life meaning.
i am having a hard time thinking of how to say some things
without having people either tell me they’re worried about my mental stability
or call me names
so i’m just gonna take some time
and be mostly quiet for a little while
(except for the part where i continue to curse the writers under my breath, of course)
it won’t be forever
but i do like
have a job
so don’t stress out if i’m not back posting at a high rate all week
i’m just working
not having a meltdown
so don’t jump to conclusions
don’t jump to anything
we’ve got enough problems there already

DO NOT WANT
If you’re about to watch, remember to stay till the end of the credits!
I’ll see you a few hours after the episode’s over. This time, consider this your warning post that I’ve watched and remember to block any tags you need to block per my [s p o i l e r] policy.
Sherlock writers, cast, crew, and fandom, thank you for a bizarre yet wonderful two years.
Blocking out an entire day of my schedule to watch a show I won’t get to see until early evening during a time when I am simultaneously avoiding every interesting area of the internet to avoid [s p o i l e r s] may have been something of a mistake. I’m getting kind of thumb-twiddly over here.
So I guess I’m going to go ahead and do a few more posts cataloging some of the ways the Lazarus solution from The Empty Hearse is too intentionally filled with errors to be believed. I think many (most?) of you are already on board with this idea, but if you don’t want to hear about it you can block my #the empty fall tag as usual.
This is slightly embarrassing but it’s also funny, so I’ll share.
You know how most people’s Sherlockian dreams are like, “And then I met Sherlock and John and we all went out for ice cream”?
Last night I had the Sherlockian equivalent of the test stress dream.
Suddenly I realized that in Reichenbach, there was a shot of Sherlock standing on top of St. Bart’s dropping breadcrumbs off the roof.
And I was all OH NOES TIME IS ALMOST UP HOW DO I NOT HAVE ANY THEORY POSTS ABOUT THAT ON MY BLOG.
So… yeah. That happened.
To be fair, I know that dream had 900% more to do with a stressful real-life situation from yesterday than it did with Sherlock. (Despite what some of you seem to imagine, I don’t like… sit in the dark all day playing the episodes backwards and forwards desperately looking for clues. I only watched s3e2 for the second time last night!)
All the same, tomorrow can not come soon enough.
