Well, we made it. We made the eighteen month hiatus. We’ve watched. We’ve rewatched. We’ve gifed every single frame of every episode. We’ve taken over the fan fiction websites. We cried at Alone on the Water. We cringed at Flowers in a Box. We gawked…
My god, the Third Star-ish quote nearly brought me to tears. Dearest Sherlockians, I raise a toast to you tonight!
Freshmen: The ones who are new to the fandom and are still too innocent to understand exactly what this fandom is.
ROTC Guys: The members who have been through everything. And survived.
Preps: Practically everyone preparing and planning how and what they will do on the day Season 2 airs — in particular the way in which they will try to survive.
J.V. Jocks: (reversed) The entire fandom pining after two middle aged men.
Nerds: Members of the fandom who are fans of every re-creation and can tell you everything about anything to do with Sherlock. Respect these guys - they’re dedicated.
Cool Kids: The people who supply the Gifs, downloads, links, articles, and pretty much anything that you yourself can’t get your hands on. This in itself makes them the cool kids of the fandom. Highest of these go to the fan-artists — those who create the graphics, the sketches, the comics, fan-vids, etc.
Unfriendly Hotties: Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss. Don’t let them fool you - they can be kind to your face, but when they have things that can tear down your world - like a 48 second video preview to the long-awaited second season - they will burn you. They will burn the fangirl heart out of you.
Girls who reblog their feelings: Entire fandom during the hiatus/The Great Flood of December 2011.
Girls who don’t eat anything: The fandom members who Gif ALL the things! And I mean all the things…
Desperate Wannabes: Those who are confused between wanting to bethe characters/actors, or wanting to fuck them. …Or both.
Burnouts: People who dedicate so much time and effort to this fandom that they’re actually beginning to either fail school, lose friends, lose what little social life they (possibly) had to begin with, or their sanity. Or all of the above.
Sexually active band geeks: They ship everything. Everything. Be it John/Jam, Mycroft/Umbrella, Sherlock/Violin, Anderson/Dinosaurs, Mystrade, or John’s walking stick/Anyone. They read and/or write crack about it all; Rule #34 applies to everything. Be cautious around these ones because they will do anything to release their sexual frustration and do not judge them; they will go down with their ships and they will fight to survive.
We are the greatest people you will ever meet; Anderson’s the worst. But most of all - MOST OF ALL - ship Johnlock like there’s no tomorrow.
Oh, and on Wednesdays we wear sweaters.
Is that sweater Wednesday thing official? Because I need to start participating in that.
Also, this is extremely accurate, and some several almost all of these things apply to me.
Guys, I'm either a genius or I'm over thinking this.
Do you remember towards the beginning of The Great Game when Sherlock gets the pink phone in the envelope? He says the envelope is Bohemian and a woman wrote “Sherlock Holmes” on it. As far as I know, Moriarty is a guy. Confusing…?
So, this is my theory: Irene Adler is in league with Moriarty. I know it sounds crazy, but if you think about it, it really doesn’t. How else would Moriarty get a girl to write “Sherlock Holmes” on the envelope? I considered his first victim at first, but then ruled it out because she would be shaking terribly and would be unable to write it so neatly. Also, why else would the gender of the writer of the envelope matter? Why mention it? I understand it may just be Sherlock being Sherlock, but keep in mind this is a TV show. They don’t just throw things out there unless there is a purpose.
Another thing [SPOILER ALERT]: in the trailer when Sherlock is looking at Irene’s website photo’s, she get’s a text from someone that says, “I’m sending you a treat,” before she get’s all of the text pictures of Sherlock and his sheet. Who would be sending her that text? Considering her line of work, she wouldn’t be getting those just to have some fun with Sherlock. She has ulterior motives.
Also, in the Guy Ritchie movies, Adler does work for Moriarty. Mofftiss is straying enough from the canon to pull it off as well. I’m just saying, it’s possible. You heard it here first!
Or I’m going to look like an idiot come Monday. I’m willing to take the risk.
