Crying about birds

Yorkshire scientist person based in the North East of England looking to re-establish fandom presence on the internet after over a decade of thankless loyalty to Livejournal. Somewhere in her latter twenties which on tumblr seems old. Unsure of what this is going to be* but you should expect occasional fandom monogamy, books, films, telly, music, whatever nutritional item I'm cramming down my neck, whatever fancy craft beer I'm cramming down my neck, nature, science, wildlife, frustrated efforts at so-called art (mostly birds, occasionally fanart), and a predilection for Benedict Cumberbatch's weirdy face. Should fit right in, then.

*Oh wait apparently it's going to be constant Sherlock reblogs. Never mind.

It is called an-everyday-sort-of-magic and posts are scheduled to begin Monday. Love me :(

I’ve the next four days off work and we all know what that means.

Perfect, perfect books.

Perfect, perfect books.


I just realized that in this godforsaken scene:



When Sherlock says “I think it could work”

He’s saying I think the name Sherlock Watson could work”

And then John, still laughing, realizes what he just heard and does a sort of puzzled look back up at Sherlock:



And Sherlock just:




And in conclusion, we’re not exactly looking at an aborted declaration of love.

Embarrassed by how much I like this interpretation and not completely convinced but it makes me happy-sad-cry ow-my-soul-hurts so HEADCANON ASSIMILATED.

Just had a poke at my old(-old) Livejournal to see if I could find any of my old art. This still exists! I did it when I was 16/17 and I was so proud. It’s nice to see that I have improved. And that the grotesque horse thing isn’t a recent thing….
