I keep seeing TJCL around, but I must have missed something BECAUSE I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IT STANDS FOR! Can you explain? It's probably something really obvious, innit?

TJLC is The JohnLock Conspiracy. It’s the belief that Johnlock has been endgame since the beginning of the show.

And with that giant lampshade, I conclude my argument that Mary is intended to be a morally grey character.

Now that’s out of the way, let’s talk about something more interesting: Who was she before she was Mary Morstan?

The Proposal

okay so allow me to just revel in what’s been pulled off here, in terms of these characters and how much they’ve grown together, through knowing each other. 

sherlock knew for a week, and sat on it, and in fact tried to smooth the road so she’d know it was cool, she could go. and yeah, he’d be bummed about it, but he’s not gonna pull some petty shit and emotionally blackmail her into staying. in fact, what actually precipitates the above is this:

Sherlock: I’m frustrated because despite the recent attempt on a colleague’s life, you still have not agreed to learn self-defense. 

Joan (while pacing and somewhat forcefully snapping off latex gloves): You know what, I appreciate your concern with my safety, I really do, but I think we need to have a conversation about boundaries. Okay, you know, you’ve given me this incredible window into what you do, and it is fascinating, but at the end of the day, I am not your apprentice, I am your sober companion.

AND LET’S BACK IT UP EVEN FURTHER because this, to me, is a scene that stems directly from the “you even made a friend. …I AM TALKING ABOUT ME, YOU BUTTHOLE” scene. so basically sherlock’s week has been:

1. ex-“friend” tries to sabotage his entire life 

2. he calls dad, finds out joan lied to him 

3. JOAN IN DANGER OH GOD WHAT 

4. JOAN IS FREND?? joan says hey i am your friend you butthole

5. as a newly minted friend, tries to make leaving easy on joan

6. joan stays???? we are frends?? joan? joan???

7. right maybe if i hit her with things maybe that is what friends do

8. AND THEN THIS SCENE WHERE JOAN PULLS THAT NVM I AM JUST YER SOBER COMPANION CARD 

9. sherlock holmes, addict, butthole, and friend, respects them both enough to say “NOOOOOOOOPE.”

because this scene, with different dialogue, could have been selfish. it could have been purely i need you for my brain to go smooth, so there. but it didn’t go that way. it’s so full of his massive respect for her, his sometimes incredulous awe of her (jesus jlm, the line reading and body language on “the most curious thing happened. you stayed.”), he doesn’t ask her to stay at a point when it’s something purely that he needs, he waits through that. and asks when he figures out that she’s there because she wants to be there, and it’s freaking her out to teeter on that precipice.

GUYS I COULD FREAK OUT ABOUT THIS WHOLE THING ALL NIGHT I AM NOT EVEN KIDDING BUT JUST ONE MORE THING I SWEAR

bringing up the confidentiality clause

because it makes the relationship unequal

in a way that’s to his advantage

jlaks;dfhjsdfsdf;jsdf

OKAY I LIED ONE MORE THING

is that because this is fucking good writing and 100% honest to these characters:

she 

does

not

immediately

agree.

she doesn’t turn around and say “to hell with thinking it over! WEEEE FIIIIGHT CRIIIIIME!” and then they do a mid-air high-five framed by Bell’s (ludicrously enormous) television screen.

but she’s joan motherfucking watson. she does this on her own terms. 

okay i’m gonna go to bed and cry about it now, thanks for your time. 

I can honestly say this is by far one of the most perfect scenes ever written about the connection between two people that is based on trust and partnership, and caring, with absolutely zero sexual tension.
And holy hell, it’s between a man and a woman.
Could it be that writers on shows are finally getting it?

Elementary, you are WONDERFUL. I love you.

The Princess Bride, Moffat, and TJLC

loudest-subtext-in-television:

In my reading, TJLCers!

If you didn’t know, one of Moffat’s favorite movies (and books) is The Princess Bride:

I’d recommend reading The Princess Bride. It’s a wonderful book; it’s about storytelling. It’s supposedly him adapting a story his father used to tell him, for his son — by cutting all the dull bits out, and any kissing, and getting rid of it all.

I think it’s both a wonderful book —and a film, which is a double whammy.

— Steven Moffat (x)

Consider this as a summary of The Princess Bride (which has some of its own parallels with ACD canon):

The audience for the story is a kid who explicitly says he doesn’t want to hear a kissing story; he thinks they’re gross. His grandfather sells him the story by making it sound like an adventure story. As the adventure story goes on, the kid starts shipping Westley and Buttercup and caring a lot about their relationship.

Westley returns from the dead in a disguise and pisses off Buttercup, his true love. She forgives him rather quickly, however. Unfortunately she is engaged to someone else she doesn’t truly love because she thought Westley was dead for years; she says the engagement all happened too quickly. Westley rescues her from a kidnapping plot and fire but then has to return her to her fiance, who turns out to not be in love with her at all, but rather is a murderous psychopath who is lying to her as part of an elaborate plot. Buttercup is unaware for a while, however, because her fiance seems so nice. Buttercup has nightmares because she’s in love with Westley but thinks she must marry her fiance. She makes a last-ditch effort to break things off with her fiance and get with Westley. Meanwhile her fiance kills Westley, who comes back via a “miracle” wherein someone asks him what he wants to live for: he awakens gasping “true love.”

At this point the kid REALLY wants Buttercup and Westley to be together, and for Buttercup’s fiance to be killed because he’s so awful: he killed Westley, and has been lying to Buttercup.

Westley manages to outsmart Buttercup’s fiance with the help of some friends. Westley and Buttercup literally ride off into the sunset and, according to the grandfather, the kiss is more passionate and pure than every other kiss ever. By the end of the story the kid is heavily invested in their relationship and wants to hear the kissing part, going so far as to become agitated when his grandfather tries to skip it.

Now reread that, but replace Westley with “Sherlock” and Buttercup with “John.” And substitute “John Watson is definitely in danger” for “true love” as the trigger that brings Sherlock back to life — which, of course, according to TJLCers isn’t much of a substitution at all.

Meanwhile the audience, who would have not willingly watched a romance they perceive to be gross, is taken in by the adventure story facade and gradually comes to root for Johnlock. By the end, they care more that John and Sherlock end up happy together than they care about any particular adventure in the story. Softly, softly, isn’t it?

Also fun: the entire cabbie confrontation in ASiP is an homage to The Princess Bride. Westley engages in a battle of wits with a man over which of two glasses of wine are poisoned: the man has to pick which of the two he’ll drink, and then they’ll both drink their glasses to prove who is smarter. He does this by working through whether it’s a double bluff, a triple bluff, etc.

watsonsbooty asked:

Hey Kelley! I wanted to know if you had any recommendations for drawing tablets and programs! Because I'm going to get a tablet and I wanted some artists opinions on what their favourite is! (Also I LOVE your art!)

I’m afraid I’m biased because I’ve only ever used one style of program and one style of tablet. XD I use Photoshop for all of my coloring and I use a Wacom tablet, which was available at my local Best Buy so I thought ‘why not?’. (THANK YOU!!!)
