Show me the stars
I'm only a mad man in a box.
So it occurred to me today that Mary and Sherlock are each other’s inverse. Sherlock presents a veneer of coldness and insensitivity as a self-preservation mechanism. Mary presents a veneer of warmth and affability to hide how ruthless and dangerous she is.
It reminds me strongly of Darcy and Wickham in Pride and Prejudice. Darcy is taken for a bad man because he is abrupt and prickly. Wickham is taken for a good man because he is charming and superficially pleasant. “One has all the good, and one all the appearance of good.” Like Wickham, Mary is the classic romantic false lead.
Tell me again how this isn’t a love story?
'I think there is something about Sherlock Holmes, which has possibly always been the case – there’s a kind of unapproachability about him. He’s not interested in sex… apparently. So you immediately get that Mr Darcy thing going on.' - Mark Gatiss
okay today i learned that apparently the penis has a say in whether or not a child will be a boy or a girl
female sperm swims slower than male sperm, but the males can’t swim for as long as the females. this means that a long penis will be closer to the egg when releasing the sperm, and there will be a higher chance for the child to be a boy.
so in conclusion
if you have a lot of sons you have a big dick
THIS IS MY NEW FAVORITE POST
four times Sherlock was alarmed by sex and the one time he wasn’t
so this is what happens
when you google ‘queer as folk promo pictures’
you get what i should call
the gay déjà-vu
when you know a word in english but not your native language
when there’s no english equivalent to a word from your native language and vice versa
accidentally switching between your native language and english in a sentence
hearing someone speak your native language when you’re on vacation on some weird ass country
i actually love angst but specifically as a tool to make the happy ending more satisfying
