It looks like everything I ever wanted in a Sherlock adaptation, which means I’m afraid to ever ever watch it. It looks so real and heartfelt, and I’m afraid it won’t be and I’ll be really disappointed.
You should watch it! It IS real and heartfelt and you WON’T be disappointed. I promise. Start with Season 1, episode one and you won’t be sorry.
<3 <3 Thank you! I think you’re right. I need to really go for it. I mean, I’ve never /disliked/ an adaptation, but I’ve never had such high hopes for an adaptation either. You’re great and this fandom is great.
It’s not perfect obviously but it is definitely one of the best adaptions I’ve seen. The relationship between Holmes and Watson is just so special and great.
holy shit why is this fandom the cutest thing? It’s like the Cabin Pressure fandom all over again.
The CP and Elementary fandoms are my favorite to be a part of. They are both just super great. Never seen shipping wars in either. Elementary has had some discussions about serious topics but everyone seems to be polite about it.
I agree about both fandoms. Sometimes I wish they weren’t so small, but then again, it’s nice having a small community of respectful, understanding people. ♥ 10/10 would recommend Elementary (and Cabin Pressure, of course).
I got laughed out by a bunch of underclassmen because I said that my sister watches My Little Pony, and that I used to. I said it was a really good show and they laughed harder. Then I said it was created by the same person who created The Powerpuff Girls and Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends. They stopped laughed and started moaning about how great those shows were, and how much they missed them.
Look, I hate brony culture as much as the next person, but don’t judge so harshly. It’s not the SHOW’S fault, it’s the FANBASE.
man as someone with unconventional triggers due to a variety of things being used to abuse me in my childhood and teenage life, if you want to police trigger warnings and tell someone how to “properly be triggered,” you should unfollow me
like seriously do you think anyone with major ptsd/mental illness is going to give a fuck about your feelings when they are dissociating, having a massive panic attack, or the plethora of other response that come with being triggered
because they are notand i seriously just saw a post saying “stop screaming i’m triggered” and fuck you. fuck you. fuck you a hundred times for policing mentally ill people on how to respond to being emotionally and psychologically compromised.
I really wish this post had warnings on it, but an important message nonetheless.
north Korea scares me to death. the fact that a place like that still exists in modern day. those people are prisoners.
1984 is here and now
this is too 1984 to be real
Except that it IS real, whereas 1984 is a NOVEL. Is that all you’re getting out of this photoset? That it’s scares you in the same ways that a book does? Because I have news for you: you’re romanticising the struggles and oppression that real people have to face. Don’t erase what’s happening with your first world “this can’t be real” bullshit. 1984 is the story of ONE person; what do you think it’s like for the ENTIRE POPULATION of North Korea? While you’re safe at home reading about telescreens and thinking about how annoying they must be, someone out there ACTUALLY has to listen to government-regulated babble 24/7. Yes, I looked at this post and saw Orwell written all over it. Except I had the decency not to compare actual human struggles to something I can put down and forget about at the end of the day. What we should be getting from this is that there is harsh injustice still in the world, not “I saw a really cool post about how North Korea is EXACTLY like a book I read!”
"Girl Speaks Gibberish With Perfect Accents To Show What Languages Sound Like To Foreigners"
I love this?
I ALWAYS WANTED TO KNOW WHAT AMERICAN ENGLISH SOUNDS LIKE TO OTHER PEOPLE.
In their video description: “Dont take it too seriously! Im retarded :)”
Wow, that problematic language… -.- I didn’t even bother to read the description.
At least she says not to take her seriously. As someone who speaks at least four of these, I can say that these are pretty inaccurate representations of the languages themselves. It’s interesting on a linguistic level, of course, but there are some offensive microaggressions that could have been avoided.
I follow so many people who do not understand oppression or representation. I see so many messages like “why can’t you just be happy with this?” and “why can’t people just learn to love!??!”
…why did I have to come to respect you before I realized you were insensitive and ignorant?
And I really…
IT GOT WORSE SINCE YESTERDAY. FUCKING CLASSISM AND APOLOGISM AND FETISHISM AND ENTITLEMENT AND APPROPRIATION, FUCKING NO.
I actually feel betrayed because I legitimately thought the people I followed would be more understanding than this. I can deal with this shit by itself, but when it comes from people I trust, that just hurts.
I think this photo is so important. So many people think rabbits are just a fluffy animal for them to carry around like a teddy, and think they’re really cheap and easy to look after. Definitely some very important facts that everyone should know.
I do not know the individual involved in this, but, as an EMT, I feel compelled to post things like this. Wear a damn helmet, guys. I know you may think you look awesome and all the ladies will love how reckless you are, but you’re honestly just demonstrating just how little you value your own life. I know this horse has been absolutely beaten to death over the years, and I’m sure that my words won’t change some of your minds, but just look at the damage sustained by that helmet. Now imagine if your face was put through the same situation. While the helmet merely had part of it ground away by the sheer friction involved, your skull would be pudding. End of story.
