So, I know alot of you guys didn’t make it to comicon, and are introverts who don’t want to go out drinking and partying and stuff, but who still enjoy having a good time…

Well can I just direct your attention to this  -

These are personlised Murder Mystery games for parties. Like - you can have ANYTHING. You could have a Steampunk-Time Traveling one, and someone did a Hunger Games/Sherlock crossover. You could even have a SuperWhoLock party! And you don’t even have to do anything but play! These make SICK birthday parties! (I know, I had the Steampunk one!)

I’m just saying, if you’re wondering what to do for a party then this is worth a look.

I eagerly await the day when they release a dvd extra that’s nothing but “clips off Lestrade’s phone”

please please please please

I have this headcanon that back when Sherlock was a junkie Lestrade saw him high quite a few times. Despite disapproving, he always wanted to film Sherlock because he was so funny high, but knew he couldn’t for legal reasons…So now, every opportunity he has to catch him legally high, Lestrade takes.

Moriarty shot himself in the face. He is NOT coming back.

Seriously, the writers would have to be DESPERATE to resurrect that plot-line. He had a good death, let him stay dead.

He shot himself in the mouth, not the face. That’s actually rather easy to fake if you have the right tools (re. movie style props and makeup, we did something…

Pretty sure your mouth is on your face. But you’re right, he could have potentially faked his own death. I’ve staged a few deaths before, one for camera (Film Studies) and on stage which was alot hard because of the live audience, so yeah it can be done…Except of course that Sherlock was at one time only two inches away from Moriarty face, so you would rather have expected him to have noticed something amiss…Especially as he’s a professional at disguises and faking suicide and had full view of Moriarty instead of the selected view of a camera or stage angle…Besides which, with Sherlock faking his own death minutes later, I imagine Mycroft (under Sherlocks’ insistence) would have been quite diligent in collecting and identifying Moriarty’s body, especially as they then went on to dismantle his empire un-thwarted.)

But yeah, it is feesable that in some backward way perhaps Moriarty did fake it and inexpically sat back and watched as Sherlock fucked up all he’d built and didn’t send new assassins after Sherlock’s loved ones to call him back to play…Only, the real reasons he’s not coming back, would be because Gatiss and Moffat have better sense that to resurrect a canonical criminal who died. Any more of Moriarty would be boring. This is a 3 episode British Drama, not a 23 episode American Cop show - they literally do not have the time to resurrect Moriarty when there is still so much potential for a show that won’t go on for many more series. 

No, structurally it would be crazy, and would ultimately be seen as a bad decision, even if initially people were glad to see him. So, they gave him a death which would be hard to fake - aka - shooting yourself in the face (through the mouth) only five inches away from the greatest detective in the world… Hence my saying - He shot himself in the face. He is not coming back.

WELL BUGGER ME SIDE-WAYS WITH A BELL. I apologise. Apparently the writers went there. Who knows what the fuck is going to happen now. I don’t know whether to be overjoyed or mad with anger. 

Next season is going to be…interesting.

From A Writer's Perspective: The Next Four Series of Sherlock

disassociatedtinman:

Okay guys, here’s my contribution to the super in-depth analyses everyone’s been doing of Series Three of Sherlock. Only this one takes a look at a possible trajectory of the show based on what we’ve been seeing, and based on my experience as a writer. I am a serious…

I am afraid that I am going to have to completely disagree with you on this. Whilst I acknowledge that as a serious writer you will indeed have a perspective into the function of how stories are constructed, I am afraid you may be too geared here on the construction of fanfiction and fan-material. Which doesn’t make you any less of an excellent writer, just that I think you are used to deconstructing a different form of writing.

Now, am I not going to say Johnlock will never happen, ever - No. Because whilst I doubt it, I am also conscious of the show-writers. Gatiss in particular likes to push boundaries and certainly wouldn’t be adverse, I don’t think, to making Sherlock and John canonically together…But then I think in some respects, that’s what they already are, and I think we are going to have to contend with our lot. 

Personally, I think they are writing on a much more interesting relationship than a romantic one and I think they plan on sticking to that, because it is unique. Most other detective stories - Castle, The Mentalist, Bones, etc have elements of romance between the two main protagonists - I mean, in Bones they’re married, Castle engaged and the Mentalist is working up to it. Sherlock, I think, wants to keep that different form of love, a love which does exists in the world but is very rarely represented.

As a writer myself, my prediction for the next few episodes of Sherlock are this -

First of all, they are not gearing up for this to be the last series. I wouldn’t be surprised however, if it stopped at 4 seasons, 5 at a stretch. 

I fear for Mary, very much. I am unsure of whether they will be so bold as to kill her, but seeing as that is Canon and the writers have a thirst for blood, I think they do plan on going bold. However, there is something new in the mix - a baby that is not from the canon. So, that puts a spin in the works. 

Either they are going to go for the ultimate cliche and kill both baby and mother, which would be somewhat disappointing and predictable writing, or they are going to keep one and get rid of the other. It would be interesting if, instead of Mary dying she went to jail instead, or went away. It would also be interesting if John is faced with having to care for a baby on his own. Either way, I hope after all the build up, they give Mary the chance she deserves as a character. 

We are seeing more of Mycroft and his relationship with Sherlock, so I think that future episodes are going to focus a little more on the pair of them. I wonder if Mycroft might not actually die? It’s a long-shot, but he’s been getting a built up, and it would actually be an interesting curve-ball to throw into Sherlock’s mix. Then Sherlock really would be the cleverest man in England, and would have to not only address his feelings for Mycroft, but the duty he has to avenge him. 

We also haven’t had any drugs. Now, either the writers are staying clear of this, because they want to steer the show into something more interesting, or they are saving it up for something bigger. Either way, I wouldn’t be surprised if we don’t get an episode where we get to see a younger Sherlock without John, if only to show the progression of his relationship with Lestrade and his growth as a human being. 

I think, inevitably, John will be moving back into to 221B, though I have a dark feeling the end of season 3 is going to see a divide appearing between our two as - John, emotionally torn, and Sherlock emotionally dysfunctional - are unable to deal with the aftermath of what happens and John decides to ‘run away’ as it were. 

At this time, I would love to see Sherlock and John become canon. I am not actually much of a shipper between them, but I think that if they did it would be a fantastic step in the right direction for future media. Sherlock is one of the most successful shows coming out Britain at the moment, and has the potential to be deeply influential on the future of television.

Sherlock & Mary

His little smile when she grabs his arm is my sexual orientation

#human contact #hm

I think Sherlock actually really does love Mary. Not in a romantic way, but like a mix between Mrs Hudson and John. He thinks Mary is clever and brilliant, and he also thinks she is kind and loving…Not going to lie, I was really scared about how they were going to do the dynamic between Mary and Sherlock, but I actually love their relationship - it’s very well written. To be honest, could John really have ever fallen inlove with the kind of woman who would dismiss Sherlock? Even if he thought Sherlock was dead.
