I'm sort of newish to the fandom (I've watched the show since the beginning but i just recently started over analyzing and obsessing) and i was wondering what are so really good fics that like everyone in the fandom has read? or just some of your favorites?

Here you go. Some of my favs including some fandom classics. These are actually tip of the iceberg. There are more. Come back and ask again when you complete these.Sorry I couldn’t include any descriptions. These ranges from fluffy to smutty to angsty as hell. Some are AUs. Always read the tags. Happy reading !

i know we’re not really supposed to talk about bbc sherlock anymore because we’re all supposed to have agreed that it was bad actually, but sometimes i think about that scene where mary shoots sherlock in the chest and he’s flatlining on the table, like the doctors have given up and called it, until the moriarty in his mind palace says “john watson is definitely in danger” and sherlock restarts his own heart and comes back to life to protect john watson

because that is the most romantic shit i’ve ever seen in my life

the way that supernatural posts have both brought this site together and made it unusable again after all these years. it doesn’t get better than this.

i almost feel sorry for the people who didn’t use this site back in the superwholock heyday because you may think this is funny and but you don’t really Get It. and you never will. what you’re experiencing is but a pale and fleeting imitation of the past. the passing shadow of a far mightier beast.

however i’ve been on tumblr since 2010 so i think it’s undeniable who the real loser is here

I mean i would have been on tumblr but i was too busy being 5

sometimes i feel wierd about being so late to the game on good shows. then i remember i was watching cartoons when they were actually airing

the boys are flirting in front of everyone

This was by far one of the best scenes. The romance, the equality, the teasing. The free use of magic. Arthur being humiliated by a servant, which is the exact opposite of their first meeting. And yet somehow exactly the same. The knights cheering for merlin without any ill intent towards Arthur.

The poor fun of the entire scene. It is magnificent.

I need more of these kinds of scenes in my life

in BBC’s Sherlock one thing I absoluotly adore is the recognition and space give to the possiblity of gay people existing within this universe

BUT

it makes me so mad that they don’t actually have any cannonically gay characters. it feels like such a cheap trick, like a facade of being accepting without actually following through, like when people say “I accept gay people…as long as I dont need to see it or etc. etc.”. Don’t just pretend to have representation without following through

(and if anyone is going to say that the Woman said she was gay, please remember she was attracted to Sherlock, so she may have been bi but dammit just call her bi then)

EDIT: I sorta re-(?) realized after I wrote this rant that this is actually queerbaiting, so I guess this is one way of describing it

I feel the need to point out that it’s never Sherlock denying them being a couple, and John always denies it by specifically saying “I’m not gay”, not “I am straight” which still leaves many possibilities. Furhtermore it’s always John, the denier, making the comments about how things make them look like a couple as if he wants it to be true

Ok- hear me out. 

The peekaboo gays in media are these (often) poorly written characters who everyone assumes are straight because yes, everyone is straight right, Karen?

BUT THEN some other character interacts with them as though they’re clearly (highlight on clearly) gay.

My fellow LGBTQI+ people already know what’s gonna happen next. 

The peekaboo gays are going to deny it and later on, for the rest of the TV series, film, book or whatever, they’re gonna say/do sum fruity shit like stare intensely into a same-sex character eyes, sensual touching them, saying “I love you” before they die (I’m looking at you, Supernatural), and so on. 

A great example of this is Sherlock and every single fucking main character on there. Hannibal, don’t let me start on that, or Merlin. I’ve already talked about Supernatural. 

These are just the most popular ones, only talking about TV shows. Who knows how may peekaboo gays are out there! 

So yes- I know there’s already the term “Queerbaiting” but I don’t think/I never came across an actual name for the characters used for queerbaiting. 

PEEKABOO GAYS; are they there, are they not? Who knows?

Once, just once, I want Sherlock to do all his deductions and be all wrong simply because the person is a complete and utter dumbass

Like just imagine it

Sherlock: You are clearly left handed and have recently won a fight. You can see bruising on the left knuckles but no apparent marks anywhere else. You have three dogs, your clothes are covered in different fur. You’ve traveled twice around the world in the past month, judging from your watch. The back of your legs have splash patterns so you’ve been dragging a suitcase. Last but certainly not least you have been sleeping with Larry here. Oh don’t look so surprised Larry I can smell your deoderant on her.

Me *cracks knuckles*: I’m right handed, I wacked my hand on the bathroom sink due to a complete lack of control of my limbs. I quite literally ran into three separate dogs today and insisted on petting them all, hence the fur. I bought this watch second hand three days ago and I can’t figure out how to change the date. The splash marks are from jumping in a very small puddle, and no offense to Larry, but ew, my roommate is my brother, obviously I hug him in the mornings. Turns out the universe really is that lazy sometimes

S: …

Me: *tries to do a cool backwards walk thing and trips over my own feet, thus firmly proving my point*

Angel Coulby, Bradley James, Colin Morgan and Katie McGrath on set of Merlin [1/2/3/4/5]

The best thing about filming in France is that we’re all out here and get to hang out together. Like the jousting - we all came in and spent two days sitting on the grass in the sun watching stunts. We were thinking, ‘How is this our lives?’ We had a game of hide and seek last night in the court yard - the four of us - in the dark, me in full costume clacking across the cobblestones thinking, ‘If I fall and break my ankle, the producers won’t be happy!’ All the extras were watching us running around screaming at the top of our lungs like 12-year-olds. You wouldn’t know we were grown ups. ~ Katie McGrath [x]

alshdgdkajdhdhkaakjabss I just got a brand new Mortal Nemesis^TM and now I feel like my life is a fanfiction with some kind of friends to enemies trope

tea??? who is it??? where did you get an enemy during a pandemic

lol drama class

Should I tell the story? I feel like I should tell the story. I’m gonna tell the story.

SO basically we had to do like end of term conversation thingies with the teacher, and we were in a line of who went next, and she kept trying to STEAL my SPOT so we had a socially distance fake fight and then she stole the spot!! So then as soon as the other guy was done I ran straight past her and through the door before she had a chance, thus gaining myself an enemy. We also ended up yeeting pinecones at eachother, she straight up shot me in an improv and we engaged in a fierce battle of line dancing but that’s for another day

Oh and also I put her number in my phone as Arch Rival and we’re sending eachother vaguely threatening messages

this is my favourite thing ever please keep me updated

Update:


I’ve got absolutely no clue what this means or how to respond

cause witches are soluble in water, she’s saying you’re a witch and she sent the rain to dissolve you

Jokes on her, I love rain

Heteronormativity in BBC Sherlock

(and how it affects Johnlock)

First of all, what’s heteronormativity? Here’s Wikipedia’s definition:

So basically it means that usually in people’s mind being straight is good, being straight is normal, being straight is the “default setting”, heteronormativity is the reason why lgbt community isn’t really accepted by society and it often creates homophobia, because it makes people think that not being straight isn’t natural. Unconsciously, for example, many people see more easily that a man and a woman are in love because they have been taught that it’s natural and normal. (As I did with Sherlock and Molly)

Before I explain to you how specifically the relationship between Sherlock and Molly is just a straight version of Johnlock you have to know what mirror characters are and how are they used in bbc Sherlock, you probably already do but in case you didn’t here you can find some metas about it - Molly is John’s Mirror -

Now, Molly is a girl, she’s in love with Sherlock and we all know it and see it, in many scenes she showed affection to him and it’s not deniable. In the first scene where she appears she just offers Sherlock a coffee, and yet we all get that she feels something for him, probably just a crush, but the way she acts make us remember about all the cliche tv series with the shy clumsy girl crushing on the tall smart guy, it’s not necessary to explicitly say that she wants to date him. But if it was a man doing that not everyone would have understood (or accepted) that he had a crush on Sherlock. They would have had to explicit it. That’s how heteronormativity works: a men and a woman? Possible couple, typical love story. Two men or two women? Nothing more than friends, it would be weird thinking of them as a couple unless they’re openly gay.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s okay to ship the shy girl with the smart guy, but if we see Molly as a John’s mirror we should also see some Sherlolly scenes as a “straight heteronormative version” of Johnlock. Thinking of Molly as John’s mirror is really helpful when you try to understand Johnlock, because her love for Sherlock is more easy to see for ordinary public since they’re a man and a woman, even the fact that she’s jealous of Irene is obvious, like in these scenes for example:

Instead, it’s more difficult to see that John is jealous of Irene because he’s a man, but he’s acting even more jealous than Molly in these scenes:

Molly wasn’t in the ACD’s books and I personally believe that Mofftiss introduced her character with the main purpose of making Johnlock more obvious. Just take a scene like the one at Angelo’s restaurant, if you keep the exact same lines but you think that one of them is a woman the flirt will be impossible to ignore. Molly makes the most heteronormative minds see that Johnlock is there and that if everything John said and did was said and done by a woman (or vice versa with Sherlock) probably no one would argue about the fact that Sherlock and John are acting like a couple at this point.

Also with Irene the things are similar, even if she’s a Sherlock’s mirror, we can see for example that when she tries to seduce sherlock the scene is shot with the same angle and the same movements as the scene of the stag night as you can see here (credits)

With Irene is more obvious, she’s The Woman, The Dominatrix, she talked about “having someone”, she touched Sherlock’s wrist and everyone thought about the fact that “dinner” was something else in that scene (and in the whole episode). But when John during the stag night scene touches Sherlock’s knee and says “I don’t mind” there are still people that don’t get, or don’t want to get, the subtext, which is honestly obvious here too.

So in conclusion I don’t actually think that all the female characters or all the straight ships in Sherlock have the only purpose to mirror John and Sherlock’s relationship, but if we take Johnlock as the very endgame of the series then we should consider that those characters and ships are also meant to make people see Johnlock in different ways.

Hope you liked this meta! Probably my longest one, it took really long to be written. What are your thoughts?

This was really good!

I will say, I watched commentary at one point that said that Molly was originally supposed to be a one off character. She was just supposed to be the pining woman in the first episode, and that was it, but fans really liked her, so they decided to keep her around.

I don’t think she started out as a way to highlight Johnlock, but maybe that’s what they decided to use her for when they decided to keep her as a reoccurring character.

Yes, Molly’s character was meant to appear only in S1, and her purpose was to show how clueless Sherlock is when a woman is obviously pining for him and hitting on him (while he immediately picks up when John’s doing the same at Angelo’s), and also how little he cares - if he notices at all - if his words hurt someone’s feelings. But I agree that they decided to keep her as John’s mirror and to highlight Johnlock and heteronormativity, and they were upping their game with her character and what she was meant to highlight until the very end.

It’s interesting how they wanted to show him clueless with Molly, but then they have him supposedly able to tell quite well when women are interested in him, according to John on his blog.

Also, notice that, even in the first episode, Sherlock is oblivious to the fact that Molly is head over heels falling in love with him. Yet, when John and Sherlock go out to have dinner, he notices immediately that John is trying to flirt with him and tries to let him down slowly. But when John says that that was not his intention, Sherlock gives him this look that plainly says that

I don’t believe you, I’m suspicious, but I’ll stay quiet for your sake and mine”

And if he can’t see this in Molly, who’s literally asking him out for coffee, why can he see this is John?
