Woo, I got tagged by mild-lunacy! <3
- Describe your favourite scene from S1-S3 of “Sherlock”
- You can use gifs or do a plain text response, up to you!
- Talk about why you chose this particular scene (you can be as verbose or succinct as you wish!)
- Tag as many people as you wish in your response
For a few minutes I thought it was going to be difficult to choose a favorite scene, but then suddenly I knew what I had to do: the reunion scene in The Empty Hearse. A lot of people hated it, but I thought it was absolutely brilliant.
Minor little side-note: based purely on intuition from watching both Sherlock and Doctor Who, I would say that Moffat loves to write romance and flirting and epic stories, whereas Gatiss loves to write human flaws. The more tragic the flaw, the better. And that, right there, is why Gatiss had to write the reunion.
So here goes.
Behind the cut because gifs.
holy shit there is a name for it
Well damn. Explains a lot.
Suddenly I understand some of my fan base a LOT better. That is Awesome.
"holy shit there is a name for it" was my reaction before I even scrolled down to the comments.
I just need to keep reblogging this because I cannot even begin to tell you how profound a feeling of YES and THIS and THERE IS A WORD FOR ME OMG I get every time I see this, and I hope it helps others too.
seriously, anytime you see a post with a comment saying “theres a name for it?!” reblog that post because even if it doesnt apply to you any of your followers could be waiting for that revelation.
Important things from Igbohistory Instagram. European colonialism has, and still continues to dismantle the myriad of sophisticated social constructs upheld by so many African ethnicities, by presenting Africa as a unit by choosing to ignore the huge ocean of differences between ethnic groups, let alone countries.
Did Igbohistory quote the person who actually wrote this? As I read this, I had the feeling that I’d read the exact words before and not from Igbohistory. In fact I believe that I shared a link to the original essay on my tumblr years ago but I can’t find it now, I will sha…
I was taught this in my African History class, and since then i stopped referring to my people (Yoruba) and other ethic groups of Africa and the world as tribes. This large groups of people are nations with strong rich history and deserve to be respected as such.
i do hope that igbohistory doesn’t claim that this is their own work, and they simply forgot to cite where the information comes from.
I updated! I made a mistake pls, it was very similar to another essay I’d read but not the same.
I BEEN saying this, YES.
'Tribe' is a white anthropological word meant to diminish.
And can people still stop referring to the Amazigh as “Berbers” which means “barbarian”. Otherwise great points.
startingwiththeridingcrop said: You are beyond pretty and I am beyond insanely jealous! ❤
Thank you so much! ❤ Please don’t be jealous!! I can look hot when I want to because I’ve taught myself to be confident and people who find themselves attractive exude that to others, but I don’t look hot when I wake up with cry lips and messy hair and uneven skin and blurry eyes. I’m still clever then, though, and still creative and eloquent and good at my subjects. Don’t be jealous of something so temporary and inconsistent, learn to love how you look and focus on the attributes that you’ll never lose!! xxx
I have Keratoconus which is a genetic condition that causes the cornea to turn cone shaped. It makes it hard to see, because bright lights form halo effects, obscuring the vision, and making it difficult to read, and in my case, draw. The day before my birthday, I went to a specialist, who gave me three options; Cross linking eye surgery, (which is still considered experimental in the United States, and not covered by insurance) Intact lenses (also not covered by insurance) or complete cornea transplants (Which is covered by insurance, but much riskier than the other two listed).
Although there is some hope, since the Intacts is currently going through trial runs and studies for it to be approved by most insurances, I will learn by october, if I will be an acceptible participant for the study, and receive the intacts at either a reduced price, or not pay at all.
But, worse case scenerio, I will have to pay $5000-9000 per eye.
I cannot afford that, on my walmart salary. My family is barely skating by with what we have, and we still struggle every month to make ends meet. There is absolutely no way we would be able to pay for this surgery.
And, that really scares me.
As an artist, and a writer, I depend so much on my eyes. Keratoconus is not curable, and will only worsten, if they go untreated. I NEED this surgery, but I can’t pay for it, with the few hundred bucks I get from putting up with walmart customers.
So, I turn to you, Tumblr. This is very hard for me to do, since I was raised to believe that if someone can work for their money, they very well should, and reserve the free help to the people who truly cannot help themselves. But, if you feel like you can, and want to donate, please feel free to send that money to my Paypal, at email@example.com
If you want to help in another way, please spread my Commissioning Info or feel free to commission a piece of artwork from me directly by sending me an ask here, note me at my Dev.art, or Email me your information at the same Email stated for my Paypal.
Simply re-blogging this really helps as well.
Thank you for taking your time for reading this out.
I’ll share this before I close the blog because it makes me sad.
You know, the funny thing about this tune is that it was the second theme I wrote out for the Ruby Quest album, and it was really done as an after thought. Since then, this tune somehow became the most popular track off the album!
So yeah, I actually had a lot of fun with this. I was initially hesitant to write it, since I really didn’t have a clear idea on how to improve this tune, but as I worked around with some sounds I loaded into FL Studio, this soon came together quite nicely! I’m actually really pleased with how this came out.
As always, I hope you enjoy this revamp of Red’s cause if you don’t he might slit your throat…
The actions of 19 Islamic extremists on 9/11 left an indelible mark on America. Today, millions pause to commemorate the attacks’ 13th anniversary, to honor the victims and to remember that all life is special and sacred. But there’s an untold story amid the many speeches and moments of silence — one filled with a different kind of pain, grief and strong sense of loss.
BBC Sherlock S3 Character Alignments
Irene Adler made deals with actual terrorist organizations, put “the lives of millions of British citizens at risk” ( her words)….and somehow Mary Watson is the “neutral evil”.
Since I am in such a good mood for some Mary
First, what exactly does chaotic neutral and neutral evil mean?
Chaotic neutrals are generally free spirits. They value individualism. They’d go on great lengths to protect their freedom but couldn’t care less about others’. They don’t disrupt a good organization unless they’re driven by their need for themselves. Which was exactly what Irene Adler did in ASiB, if you recall. She cornered the British Government for her own safety and gain. It wasn’t her who had deals with terrorist organizations, it was Moriarty. You do know how Moriarty works, right? Clients ask for help and he gives out plans. Irene only followed them to achieve what she wants. And we have no canonical evidence of this anyway.
Neutral evils, on the other hand, does whatever they can get away with. They have no qualms in turning on their allies for their own sake. They do not care about who they kill, whatever the reason is. They also hold no regard of the laws and morals because they think those won’t make them any better.
Mary Morstan, on the other hand, did kill a lot of people for money. That’s what assassins do, right? If we watched the same episode, you’d know that she lied to John all throughout their relationship, potentially endangering his life without him having any idea about it, oh, and she shot Sherlock that made him flatline for a minute there and continued to threaten him while he was still fresh from being woken up, not to mention that she kept all her assassin gear, also potentially endangering her unborn child’s life and hasn’t shown any sign of remorse until the episode ended. Sounds like a neutral evil character to me.
What made that studio what it was, the heart, is that man. He knows it’s just a name. Life changes and moves on while you keep searching for what makes it good. The last part shows this best. In that heavy moment of reflection he is still finding something around them that he finds pretty to see.
Apply this attitude to your entire life, the world, and the species, and you’ll be happier.
