Pros-and-cons of Sherlock and Elementary, rebloggable by request
Something that I really wanted to add about Elementary v. Sherlock that’s really important to remember when keeping them both in the context of the books is the characterisation of Holmes;
In canon, Holmes was not an asshole. He sometimes screwed up, because he’s peculiar and brilliant and has a bit (ha ha) of an ego, but if he offended someone he cares about (not just Watson, but clients & near-strangers who didn’t deserve the abuse), he regrets it.
He has a massive heart; it’s half the reason he solves crimes.
- Sherlock doesn’t seem to even touch Sherlock’s humanity outside of John.
- Elementary handles it brilliantly. Sherlock has a heart, and while he often steels himself, he is very much human. And when Sherlock screws up, Watson holds him accountable for it.
this is legitimately my favorite reaction image when someone is whining about watson being a bad character just because she’s female and asian
mostly because i don’t see anyone in the great mouse detective tag whining about how unrealistic and against canon it is for watson and sherlock to be talking mice
What if season 3 of Sherlock airs, and Sherlock comes back and everything, but when everyone asks him how he did it, how he survived the fall, he just smiles
And it’s never explained
omg HE WOULD SO DO THAT dammit
I deduce there is nothing under my microscope
I laughed way too hard at this.
New headcanon - Looking into the microscope is Sherlock’s equivalent of a kid putting their fingers in their ears and going “la la la I can’t hear you”
So whenever John nags him about leaving heads in the fridge or toes in the sink or something, he goes and “looks busy” on the microscope, even if there’s nothing there.
John’s totally aware of what he’s doing, but he finds it too amusing and endearing to call Sherlock out on it.
“la la la I can’t hear you”
Jesus… this fandom…
I’m sure that Mrs. Hudson’s husband committed a great number of crimes in order to get sentenced to death. From the way she flinches when Sherlock slams his hands on the table, I’d say it’s safe to bet that one of his many crimes was spousal abuse.
(( Why the hell did you think Sherlock got so goddamn pissed when two men barged into the flat and physically roughed her up?
He was regular level of angry up until he saw the signs of physical harm. Then he decided one of them was going to fall out of a window several times. ))
funny how John’s first case with Sherlock started with suicides that weren’t really suicides
and John’s last case with Sherlock ended with a suicide that wasn’t really a suicide.
you. and. i. have. a. very. different. FUCKING. IDEA. OF. WHAT. IS. FUCKING. FUNNY.
Roses are red, Sherlock’s blood too, there’s pain in John’s voice, “He’s my friend let me through
If Sherlock was an animated show : part II
Due to the overwhelming and wonderful response to my first post (like holy shit I really didn’t think people would like them that much) I decided to draw more from a Scandal in Belgravia. I added the new images to the original post if you want to reblog all of the screencaps.
