why have people taken to talking about johnlock as ‘the johnlock conspiracy’? what even is that supposed to mean?
the way i understand it the whole tjlc thing started as something of an in-joke/in-theory among a group of friends which grew over time (im a little sketchy on the details sorry) but basically afaik there are a collection of theories floating round that the writers are thinking long-term and johnlock will become canon in much, much later seasons. i’ve read a couple of the theories and they were definitely interesting and raised some good points but i’m not really deeply involved in fandom anymore to know more than that, sorry!
You guys are really rude to sherlockians...just saying
Hello! Does the "high functioning sociopath" thing make you guys at least a little frustrated as well? Perhaps I'm over-reacting, but it makes me real upset, because I dream to be a psychologist one day, and then Sherlock just writes it off as "high functioning sociopath" without any proper psychology training? High functioning is on the autism scale, and sociopath is not. Also, aren't sociopaths and psychopaths the same thing? Do you think I'm unreasonably mad or am I justified in my anger?
i’ve heard it said that the line is from the original acd novels, though i can’t verify because i read all of those in eighth grade and they weren’t particularly stellar so i didn’t soak up every single line in them, but it is definitely true that there is no such thing as high-functioning psychopathy/sociopathy and people labeled as psychopaths/sociopaths actually have personality disorders
i think you’re justified in your anger, just because mixing the autism scale with things like PPD isn’t correct and a person like sherlock would probably know that. i think it’s easier to be angry at people who brandish that line from the show and apply it to themselves or others because they’re wholly incorrect, but
I AM HAVING AN ARGUMENT WITH A SHERLOCKIAN ON INSTAGRAM AND I CANT GET OVER THIS
so you can laugh too.
Highlighted the most absolutely hilarious ridiculous bits
"The show doesn’t condone his behavior at all"
"No real sexism"
"I am a Sherlockian asshole"
⬆️ actual comments from this person
'no real sexism' oh boy. ohh boy
I’m laughing so hard I can’t breathe.
I love when johnlockers try to pretend that relationship is completely healthy.
it’s definitely time for people to brush up on this bluetext again and realize that john and mary have legitimate love but with sherlock he has a “textbook abusive relationship”
smh don’t kid yourselves, sherlock and john are not a pristine perfect in-love pair
I have no words for how done I am with people sometimes.
I blocked out the name of the teacher and the child she was talking about, but the thing that’s getting me is that there are people commenting about cute these things the kids are saying are and that’s it okay that she’s teaching kids this stuff.
Just in case anybody thought it wasn’t true, that RPer I was talking about the other week just posted this.
submission relating to this post
I’m not sure if I’m submitting this right, but yeah, anyway, I RP on tumblr, and there’s this Lestrade RPer who works in a child care centre, and she teaches the kids about Sherlock constantly. Like, this has been going on for more than a year. Instead of drawing pictures of their families, they’re drawing pictures of Moriarty etc. It’s disgusting how much she pushes her fandoms onto the children she’s been trusted to watch. They’ve even had conversations about her ships! Eg. “Do you think Sherlock should kiss Molly?” And she talks about bloody murders etc. with them when they’re not even out of day-care!
Her excuse is that a lot of the parents have watched the RDJ version of Sherlock, but that’s so convoluted, I have no idea how it’s supposed to affect what is and isn’t appropriate for toddlers. Despite being confronted about it by a few people, she intends to continue pushing Sherlock down their throats, and it honestly disgusts me. She encourages them to re-enact the Reichenbach episode in their playtime. The whole time she spends with these kids seems to be focused on her fandoms, and she refers to them as her babies. It’s damn creepy and so inappropriate. I wish I had an email for her boss or something so I could report her! If anyone did that to my kids, I’d be so angry!
