The history of film in one scene

(Source: frankoceanvevo, via porcupine-girl)

"The best thing about writing fiction is that moment where the story catches fire and comes to life on the page, and suddenly it all makes sense and you know what it’s about and why you’re doing it and what these people are saying and doing, and you get to feel like both the creator and the audience. Everything is suddenly both obvious and surprising… and it’s magic and wonderful and strange."

— Neil Gaiman (via maxkirin)

so like

lemme make sure that i have been correctly ‘splained the thing

you appropriate AAVE (and like hey if it’s really yours to claim yay hooray i would love to be wrong here)

you appropriate First Nations terminology (ditto)

your conspiracy theory is just a joke and i really need to stop taking it so seriously

but i also shouldn’t think that i can understand it unless i study it at length

the theory is “not hurting anyone”

except that it is

and the problem here

is that i do not understand satire

honeybadger

please.

And this is why it isn’t funny.

What makes me the most angry about all of this mess is when people co-opt the language of the oppressed over a FANDOM ISSUE. Do you not understand how vile that is? To take terms and expressions developed and used by people who are literally dying because of who they are, and applying them to a situation that amounts to nothing more than “someone is doing fandom differently from me.”

For a group of people who are supposedly all about representation, y’all do an awful lot of talking over the people you want to see represented.

Yeeeah, the lack of interest in listening to people who belong to relevant minorities about things they find offensive is pretty disturbing.  Also not amused by the fact that anyone who points out either flaws in the hypothesis (which shouldn’t be a problem if we’re all just in this for fun, right, and arguing fan theories is fun, or at least it used to be …?) or calls out problematic issues is automatically branded as a bitter old heteronormative harpy who just wants gay people to keep killing themselves because they aren’t properly represented in media.  (That’s an almost verbatim transcript of a post I saw going around a while back, BTW, so I’m not overly exaggerating).  Even if that’s NOT what was being said at all. So much for “just for fun.” 

Not to mention that people who write about asexual interpretations are *also* branded as desperate, bitter heteronormative bigots who are clutching their pearls so hard over the possibility of Sherlock being attracted to men that they have to invent the fantasy of him being “asexual” as a last resort … rather than maybe people who would like to see some asexual representation in media, which is also pretty lacking, yanno? Oh, yeah, that’s right, asexuality doesn’t *really* count, I forgot.

Meh.  I’m all for people having fan theories and fun with those theories, but I’m also not fond of folks using fan theories as an excuse to act badly towards anyone who doesn’t agree.  This isn’t the first time I’ve seen it happen, but it’s rapidly becoming the most egregious version, and all the cute pancakes and glittery nails in the world can’t really help cover that up

(/rant).

Sherlock and John getting drunk and baking a cake.

earlgreytea68, if you write that vampire slayer AU, I will totally take this prompt and write it in the Mise universe.  

It will be sweet and sexy and funny and best of all, there will be CAKE (or at least a recipe for one).  I know you like cake.  I would like a slayer AU.  I think we can work something out here.

*starts throwing plot bunnies in every direction*

azriona if you write that fic, I will beta test the cake recipe. 

#azriona knows my weakness

Yeah, but you would beta test the cake recipe even if I didn’t write the fic.  :)

It’s cake azriona. OF COURSE I’m going to beta test the cake recipe even if you don’t write the fic. 

I will then post photo after photo of me enjoying said cake until I get fic in return.

Look, as much as I totally love both anotherwellkeptsecret’s fangirl gif, and your cake pic, I can do nothing until earlgreytea68 writes that vampire slayer fic.  MY HANDS ARE TIED.

#i suppose we’d have to go with a traditional english wedding cake #fruitcake

BLEGH!

I cannot stand fruitcake and candied peel has no business in my pantry. So I suggest: the Courting Cake

How about Better Than Sex cake? :D

Hmm.  I’m not sure it’s appropriate for a wedding cake….but I have to admit that sounds awfully good.  (And I have an excellent and very easy chocolate cake recipe we can use instead of the box cake mix, because I am a snot who abhors box cake mixes.)  ladyprydian, what say you?

Chapters: 10/10
Fandom: Sherlock (TV)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Sherlock Holmes/John Watson
Characters: Sherlock Holmes, John Watson, Greg Lestrade, Sally Donovan, Anderson (Sherlock)
Additional Tags: Romance, Humor, sexy!john, First Time, First Kiss
Summary:

Sally Donovan discovers an old secret John Watson considered long buried - a ten-year old “Men of the Armed Forces” calendar, which has John as a very enticing pin-up for August. The image of John might just change the way everyone sees the unassuming sidekick, even Sherlock Holmes. Rated NC-17 for eventual smut, but the story reasonable concludes before that chapter if you prefer fluff and humor.
