Anonymous asked: Your son is gorgeous.
I think so too but I would :)
Anonymous asked: I'm so sorry to ask but i really would like too know if your son is transexual. My nice looks very much like your son and i was wondering that if your son is you could help me with that situation.
I don’t think so. Despite the hair, he insists he’s a boy, dresses like a boy, likes things boys generally do. I think wanting longer hair is because his dad used to have long hair and his uncle still does.

6-The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes DVD.
7-My edits as nine magnets and 2 prints of fan art (not mine).
All DVDs are region 2 and used (I’m not that rich).

Benedict Cumberbatch - 86th annual Academy Awards

;aslkfjd;aslfjasj i’m so mad this is literally a gif of benedict clearly and visibly taking the time out to process and appreciate the fact that he has made it on stage at the oscars
TAKING A DEEP BREATH THROUGH HIS NOSE LIKE HE’S LITERALLY STOPPING TO SMELL SOME FUCKING ROSES
i’m ajs;fjsadfj JUST ;asfjd :sfjdaj ;IM FUCKING FURIOUS
Yep, it was very clear how important it was for him to be there - ringing his Mum saying “Your son is going to the Oscars.” He was so present and clearly thankful to be there. BUT YOU SMELL THE OSCARS BOY, TAKE IT ALL IN, TAKE IT ALLLL IN. YOU MIGHT BE THERE NEXT YEAR TRYING TO GET TOGETHER A THANK YOU SPEECH. <333 Me rn :

He’s the one with the long hair. The one with the long hair AND the flower is my daughter.
Anonymous asked: Mary is not a villian! She is great friends with ben, they would never make her a villain you didiot
…. maybe a visual representation will help
for the last time AN ACTOR AND A CHARACTER ARE NOT THE SAME
I continue to be baffled beyond belief by the line of reasoning that people who get along together in real life cannot play roles in which they oppose each other. It’s called acting for a reason? They are literally pretending to be completely different people? Their off-set personalities and relationships are literally completely irrelevant???
Not to mention, I’m about 9000% DONE with the idea that it is somehow objectively better to be playing a protagonist rather than an antagonist. If Mary truly is the villain many of us suspect her to be, her character will arguably be MUCH more interesting than if she were to be given some sort of redemption arc and live out the rest of the show doing… what, exactly? Fading into the woodwork while John solves cases with Sherlock? There have been plenty of instances where playing a great villain has served as a tremendous boost to an actor’s career, and many actors have a BLAST playing morally reprehensible characters. Stop acting like it would be some sort of a slight for Amanda to have to be playing the role of a villain.
Which brings me to my final point: Think for a second about what we know of Amanda Abbington. Do you REALLY think that she wouldn’t enjoy the hell out of playing a really fucking badass villain in this show? Do you really think she would think that would not be fun an interesting and challenging? She’s played villain roles before; there’s no reason to assume she wouldn’t enjoy doing it again, or that she would have a problem with that being the direction this character is going.
Mary is the characters name, Amanda is the actress
they have little to nothing in common except for the way they look. i’ve seen several series with Amanda and Martin as a couple and in all 3 they never worked out. it was always a bad relationship. sometimes people who have great private relationships end up acting as if they horribles ones. also sometimes actors who really dislike each other work really well pretending that they’re in love.
the show runners are not going to bow down to the powers of Benedict and not kick her off the show cause he said so. he is not almightily. he also seems like the kind of person who doest feel almightily. several people including Amanda have already talked about the fact that Mary is going to die. at this point it’s not about if, it’s about how and when.
also as the person above said, why shouldn’t she be a villain? she’s played one before. it could be a good turn for the role cause so far non villain Mary is really boring.
and i have to say it sounds really heteronormative when people say John has to end up with Mary. i’m getting so sick of it
So John -finally- doesn’t care what people think.
Can’t deny it; I was -slightly- inspired by…
things like that:
