I believe in Sherlock Holmes
I believe in Sherlock Holmes
James Moriarty you are hereby found guilty of ruining carpets everywhere.
So… I guess you all have heard/read/seen the news. It’s been pretty hard to miss it - the death of Sherlock Holmes. I’m gutted but I’m doing my best to keep it together. I don’t know about you guys, but I refuse to believe it. That he was a fraud. He just can’t have been, can’t have! I saw him at a crime scene once, I had followed the sound of sirens in hope it’d be one of his cases, and there is NO WAY he was a fake. You can’t make that sort of shit up, he was too good! He was an inspiration for all of us to be more observant in our every day lives, and I won’t accept the so called truth about Sherlock that is all over the media. I know you feel like I do, and now it’s our turn to show that we haven’t lost faith in him. Sherlock might be gone, but I won’t sit silent!
Imagine being a Sherlock fan in the show universe. You’ve been following the blog, stalking Sherlock a bit at crime scenes, try to be within earshot so you can hear him do his deductions. You’ve got cutouts from the papers. Then the news reach you. What do you do? Some would believe the papers, but not everyone would buy it. And they would do what they could to clear his name.
This is my take on what I would like to propose as a tribute campaign, to show our love and support. Yes, in real life. We put ourselves in the mindset of the in-show fans, and we take a Bad Wolf/Who Killed Amanda Palmer twist on it. Guerilla art/campaigning. (Not sure if everyone is familiar with WKAP. Palmer is an american artist who in order to promote her album told her fans to spread rumours about her death through street art. I can’t seem find any of it documented online though I’m afraid)
Let’s scribble on cubicle doors, back of bus seats, lamp posts. I won’t tell anyone to do anything illegal, but graffiti like in the pictures would be amazing. Paint on t-shirts, make buttons, go to the beach and write in the sand. Take photos of what you’ve done, put on twitter or tumblr and tag it!
suggestions of things to write:
- I believe in Sherlock Holmes
- Moriarty was real
- Richard Brook = FRAUD
- No doubt, Sherlock! (instead of no shit)
And feel free to come up with your own stuff!
Using digital media and spray paint is relevant to this chapter of the fandom. Why repeat what the original fandom did, when we can do something that is unique to us?
(I suggest you just grab an old t-shirt and slap some paint on it, but in case you’re not able to do that, I took the text from the two examples here and put them on a couple of shirts)
PLEASE SPREAD AND REBLOG!
Dude I’m up for this!
So I think a lot of people aren’t really in the right frame of mind right now to think about the fallout of this episode outside of John and Sherlock and how long this wait is going to be, but there are some interesting implications of all of this.
Mostly implications for Lestrade, one of Sherlock’s only friends and a man who, there is no doubt in my mind, still trusts him despite everything that has happened.
What Moriarty did, to discredit Sherlock, did not just ruin Sherlock’s reputation. It ruined Lestrade’s, too. Every case that Sherlock ever helped with is going to be discredited. They will probably have to re-try every single one. This will cost not only a lot of time and money, it will also, very likely, let a lot of very guilty people go free. How can they hold a case up without all the evidence Sherlock personally handled? Personally brought to light? And Lestrade let him in, asked for his help. He is personally responsible for the legal quagmire that comes with finding out that your ace in the hole is, apparently and self-admittedly, the man behind most of the crimes that he “solved”. I have no doubt his superiors will let him shoulder the blame, alone.
Greg Lestrade will not have a job by the time this is done. His reputation will be ruined, his record so tarnished that his word will mean nothing. Everything he’s ever done will discredited and dismissed. He will be made a mockery.
So then, where does that leave us? What does a man who is so, at his very core, a copper do when he cannot do the job he was born for? How does he keep his life together then his actions come under public scrutiny, when his cases and his marriage and his life become the stuff of gossip?
There are possibilities. Maybe he will become a detective. Maybe he will go work with Mycroft. Whatever he does, I just really hope that the show addresses that there are serious implications that come with dragging Sherlock’s name through the mud that effect more than just Sherlock and John.
someone’s always lame enough to do this and today it’s me
good luck with the last two, can’t read a thing, but those glasses are gr8
‘Award Winning Actor Joins The Cast of Top Medical Drama’
Even after twenty-two years it still beings in eleven million viewers every Sunday. “Emergency” is the highest grossing drama serial on British television. And today it has a new man joining the team. Soft-spoken Irish heart-throb Rich Brook has been delighting Dublin audiences with stage performances, but on Thursday he will join the cast of Britain’s favourite midweek drama.
The mental image of Jim sitting down to type up a description of himself as a “soft-spoken Irish heart-throb” is too much.
Spoilerish aspects below, be warned
Reichenbach= Rich Brook
Richard (Rich) Brook= Reichenbach
Rich Brook= Moriarty
STEVEN FUCKING MOFFAT AND MARK FUCKING GATISS YOU ARE TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE BASTARD GENIUSES
Realization from here, screen caps from me
I DON’T KNOW WHETHER TO KISS THEM OR PUNCH THEM IN THE FACE
Death frisbee. By the way, this episode had gorgeous dialogue for Sherlock. The best of the three episodes, in my opinion. Fatally fantastic writing, Steve Thompson.
How do you stalk a deer with a hat?
Douglas Wilmer, aged 92, played Sherlock in numerous Television and Radio adaptations of the famous stories. He is, after Jeremy Brett, the actor perhaps most recognised for the famous role.
Bless this man.
P.S. GATISS’ FUCKING HUSBAND IS IT IN AS WELL.
called it that it’d be a former Holmes
WAIT WHAT WHERE
Do you mean Ian Hallard? He’s that judge who handled Moriarty’s side! ;3;
