I come from a strange, faraway land where if you enjoy dancing you can dance with your friends just because it’s fun.
(Not that I am saying anything against Greg/Sherlock shippers in any way. I may not be a shipper, but I’m not anti-ship. You do your thing and enjoy it, Greg/Sherlock shippers!)
Should I point out there are actually 15 posts per page, or…?
and tonight i’m confirming that one of my major underlying annoyances with the writers following series 3 has nothing to do with the actual episodes and everything to do with having to properly write up old theories that only had a messy version when i was really hoping i’d run out the clock on that
Just realized I went a whole week without making a dent in the theory post to-do list. Oops. But trust me when I say I’ll get back on it as soon as I can, ‘cause it’s certainly more interesting than the reason I’ve been distracted.
Also: the Americans are with us now! Huzzah! That means there will be another [s p o i l e r] policy update soon-ish, so watch http://finalproblem.tumblr.com/sp0iler-policy for that if you still haven’t seen the new episodes.
Don’t get me wrong. The idea that the writers took the Moriarty mystery and divided it over three episodes in Series 1 and then scaled that concept up to have more moving parts and potentially stretch across three series (2 through 4) is very interesting structurally. And it may all work beautifully when it’s done and all of the pieces are finally assembled. But if I don’t talk about that much in the meantime, it is because being stranded in the middle of something that is pretending not to be a three-part story was always going to suck.
Just realized I’m not going to be able to make it to the live PBS watchalong of His Last Vow on Sunday. (And no, not because of the Super Bowl.) But the chat room will still be open, and I think you guys can handle running the show yourselves this time, right? Right.
I’m sorry you’re having a really crappy day, anon.
Is there someone you trust who you can talk to about whatever’s going on?
Or maybe you can do something nice for yourself, like go for a walk or play a game or take a bubble bath?
I hope you feel better soon.
Me: Oh man, that elephant post is still going around? I can’t believe people started taking it seriously and coming up with theories and stuff. It was just something for fun!
Brain: HA HA HA, YEAH. But did you notice that one theory you haven’t written up yet would connect all three elephants?
Brain: Just saying.
Me: I really, really hate you sometimes.
