So I mentioned in my video on shipping that Sherlock utilises a lot of the conventions and narrative devices of the romance genre, as well as developing layers of eroticism and romance within the text, in such a way that subliminally encourages the audience to view the relationship between Sherlock & John in a romantic light. This is an attempt at laying some of these out, illustrating what these techniques and layers are and the effect they have on audiences.

There are several rooms in my mind palace that are not fit for public consumption

Benedict Cumberbatch (via admiralsushishin)

actual quote: 

"There are lots of doors in my mind palace marked ‘not for public consumption’."

and yes, there is a difference. I understand that things get misheard in the heat of the moment, so I’d just like to point out the actual quote, adhering to BC’s dislike of being misquoted (which he also made a point of this weekend)

To Build a Home.

I made it 40 seconds before tears.

It makes me sob. The vid just blends all those little beautiful moments of happiness and looks between them, and it’s painful and S3 made it even more difficult to watch.

(plus, the lyrics and images are perfectly synced) 

10 minutes later I’m still thinking about this video with lump in my throat. Poor Sherlock, imma cry buckets and buckets if they never get together.

Right here with you, probably going to hit replay until I drown in my own angst.

We’re all different, in different ways, if that makes sense, which in the end I guess is what makes us the same

He really knows how to explain these sort of uncomfortable/illegal clips that affect his personal life… QQ

Decoding the Subtext

"Being an examination of the homoerotic subtext contained within the Sherlock Holmes Canon"

Okay, I don’t know how many people have read all these, but basically they examine the ACD stories for Johnlock subtext. Every one. They manage to get it into one coherent story and everything, basically if you’re interested in the ACD stories and Johnlock you should read them.

What’s interesting though is how many parallels we’ve found in our BBC Sherlock in terms of subtext. The way the characters feel, how they react to it, a lot of it’s… eerily similar. I reread them the other day and wondered if perhaps Gatiss and/or Moffat had read them? They seem like something that Gatiss, at least, would be interested in, as a Holmes fanboy with an apparent liking for subtext. And if they set out to make Johnlock a thing, it makes sense that they’d see what they could find as far as subtext in the original books.

Anyway. Would highly recommend these essays. Might take a few days/weeks, but very cool and possibly relevant to TJLC.

I BRIGHTENED IT UP SO YOU COULD TRY AND READ HIS LIPS IDK IDK

I replayed this video 15 times just to make sure I wasn’t mishearing. SHERLOCK DEFINITELY SAYS ANYTIME. OMG

Hell. He does. There’s this very defined /t/ sound and an /a/ at the beginning. 

I hear it too, but I wonder if I’m hearing it cos I deliberately listened for it? Stupid John why do you have to talk over him so loudly? :|

Whatever was said, I think we can all agree it was not in the realm of stag night platonic times with your bro.  Whatever he’s saying, all I see is that look he gives afterward, and “Anytime,” really just looks like, “OMFG John groped my knee. Finally. It was magnificent, best knee grope in the history of knee gropes.  Brilliant.  Please, feel free to feel up my thigh while you’re at it, you were half way there as it was.  Single most erotic experience of my life so far.  Would it be too suspicious if I fell between his legs and groped his knee, as well?  I don’t mind either, John, and don’t you know that yet?  Fuck me, John.  That would be lovely.  We should really do that.”

 That scene would have been 4000 times better if Sherlock thought the knee grope was the go ahead to throw himself at John. He’s confused by social situations. Aren’t you supposed to pull your mate’s cock out and play it like a Stradivarius in that situation? 

I have seen the light. It IS “anytime.”

It definitely looks more like “anytime” here. The lip movements for the initial sound in ‘me’ and final sound in ‘too’ would require more compression or rounding.
