Reaction to this post. Universally relevant and especially to the SHERLOCK (HOLMES) fandom, therefore respost here.
Okay, so I’m the last person who is opposed to homosexuality, or any other kind of sexuality. People may love whom and how they want.
But. Please stop making a big thing of it everytime someone assumes another person is straight unless stated otherwise. For two reasons:

I want to follow all those amazing people who write great articles and opinions on the Sherlock BFI screening incident, and I want to read and comment and share and discuss… but I feel terribly drained, emotionally, at the moment.
Because I think what welovethebeekeeper on Tumblr has done is a good idea, I follow:
I’ve been in fandoms – various, many of them – for more than 15 years. I started writing fanfics at approximately the same time as I first came in contact with the internet – in 2002.
Since then, I’ve written more than a hundred stories – 111 says FFN at the moment. I love writing fanfic, it’s for me a way to channel real life in a way that doesn’t hurt anyone; it gives me a good feeling and has helped me a lot in the past years. I have this quote on my wall that says, “Fanfiction – because it’s cheaper than therapy.” And it is.
At first, the title sounds like a promise. The last episode left us with a cliffhanger, but I felt with not much more story to tell, so it was natural to assume that the Neverland story will come to an end. Going Home? Sounds good. Sounds positive.
Alas, this is, after all, Once Upon a Time. And there is still half a season left. One should have known better.Continue reading

Is it too much to hope that Caitlin Moran will see any of our posts and realize what she’s done? That she’ll even feel guilty and apologize? I don’t know. Wonders do happen.
What bothers me, personally, is that after a night’s sleep (and a bad one, no kidding) I have very strange feeling about writing fanfic. I’ve written more than 100 stories in the past ten years, and I was never worried about it, but now I feel like I should be very careful what I post, thanks to Ms. Moran (anyone else noticing her last name the irony of it?).
Recently I started reading “Fic – Why Fanfiction is taking over the world” and I think it points out some very interesting and important facts. They’ve been named here on Tumblr before also – for example, that Sherlock (the BBC series, or any other televised form/cinematic realization, for that matter), is nothing else than fanfiction, either.
In which Jane orders around a whole institution just so he can be with the woman he needs so much in his life. This would be how you can describe this episode. Not that I’m complaining.

Oh well, what’s to tell. It was chaotic and exciting and exhausting and funny and OMG I SAW BENEDICT. He was, like, one meter away from me when he was signing some pics and stuff (sadly, I wasn’t close enough to get an autograph as well, but I’m not giving up!).
Oh look, they’re back…! But of course it would be too easy if all was fine now.Continue reading
This is getting ridiculous. Seriously. How can one man be so talented?
So yeah. I watched Frankenstein earlier this evening – with Benedict Cumberbatch as the Creature and Jonny Lee Miller as Victor Frankenstein. And I am blown away. Absolutely blown away.
When I read that title now I’m really tempted to say: No. Stop. Don’t do it. Henry’s getting as annoying as his grandmother. Thank God there are a few other characters around.Continue reading
