marley93 : ’in your sketch dump, the sketch in the upper-left corner, of Sherlock and John yelling at each other… it makes me think of Asterix and Obelix’
Well, here you go!
…why? why did you make me do this? And why tumblr HATES me and delates my answers from my blog? And why did I think it was a good idea? And why everything?
omgggggg asterix and obelix! adkfjadklsfjasl
Can’t not reblog. I am a huge Asterix and Obelix fan and this is adorable.

If I post some thoughts about the new movie under a cut tag, will that be enough so that those who wish to avoid spoilers can do so?
Since I don’t usually post spoilers I thought I’d ask before I post any in case anyone reading is still trying to avoid them. Anyway-please let me know?
I had a splendid evening out, thanks for asking.

I am like you, don’t read many interviews at all because they are usually full of nothing at all. But this was was so rich with little details about his home life! Scrumptious! Isn’t it strange to have someone we’ve admired for 2 yrs become famous?
Now the thing about that is, I can’t buy the idea that BC just became famous! He’s been on the front of the Radio Times more than once, which is the gold standard over here. I’m guessing you mean that he just got famous in North America :)
Aspects of BC do surprise me, probably because the things people love most about him seem to be the ones which I consider ordinary - substantial acting talent aside, he’s a well-brought-up, self-deprecating British public schoolboy, which would describe 50% of my serious boyfriends. So not much of a novelty to me. But of course most of BC fandom is not British. (Guys, you probably can’t all date BC, but we do have others like that if you want to come over.)
Poking my nose in to say it’s not precisely that he’s a well-brought-up, sweet, charming etc, but the fact that he’s managed to hang on to that while getting famous—that’s what I admire.
Me: I’m making shit up.
Spouse: It’s plausible shit.
A year ago today I posted my very first post in this my very first tumblr blog-thing. I don’t think I’ve gotten any better at navigating tumblr in a year, but what I have done—
- put up 907 (908 if you count this one) posts
- liked 1,043 posts
- read a truly insane amount of fanfic
- started a pen-specific tumblr blog-thing
- had some lovely conversations
- made some friends
- even met some of them in person! (gasp)
So to anyone following along—thanks! It’s been pretty fun. To the friends I have made—I’m so glad I joined tumblr, because even if I never saw another photo of anyone from Sherlock I’d still have new awesome people in my life. You are worth more to me than even the very best fanfic rec. ;-)
Because I have so many Tony-feels I needed to draw something.
This pic was actually inspired by Scifigrl47s fic “Dating the long way”.
Some parts of IM3 reminded me of this great fic :)
Tony in hoodies is the best thing ever.
Except maybe naked Tony.
It’s a tossup. 8)
Hoodies are nice enough, but please. It is not a tossup. We both know which is better.
In the interest of not getting spoiled for the new Star Trek movie (and also in the interest of actually getting work done…) I won’t be on tumblr much til after I see the movie. If you want to get ahold of me, drop me a note via the ask box.
Niall Ferguson, a Harvard history professor and author, apologized on Saturday for saying economist John Maynard Keynes was less invested in the future because he was gay and had no children.
Yeah, big oops there. Posting this mostly for HBBO. Annnnnnd speaking of Keynes, if you haven’t read her fabulous fic The Obvious and Proper Sense about Lytton Strachey, John Maynard Keynes, and others, do so. I highly recommend it.
Aw, thank you, friend!
(And seriously, in addition to the “offensively homophobic” angle, what a strange thing to say about Keynes in particular. If anything, he was almost naively invested in the future, and in the ideas of the transformative power of art, and the improvability of human nature. Those concepts provided so much of his motivation for doing the economic work he did. Which I think is really interesting, considering that a number of his close friends who were actually artists, became much more jaded on that score than he did.
Also, you know. Dude was married to a lady for 21 years until his death, and his wife, with whom he described himself as “very much in love,” had at least one miscarriage, BUT WE ALL KNOW BISEXUALS DON’T EXIST. So there’s that.)
Exactly. Not only was it massively offensive, but it was just plain wrong. If you’re going to be massively offensive, at least be technically correct. But then, <ed. note: rant about Harvard removed as being irrelevant to the blog at hand.>
