Later today, Amelia will be arriving in London to stay with me for a week and a half. As I also have revision to do and coursework to complete, this will leave me with limited time for tumblr, but honestly, I’m glad of that.
Lately, fandom has become exhaustingly divisive, aggressive and petty. It’s like playground wars all over again, and in all honesty, I’m a grown woman with uni stresses and work stresses and financial stresses and housing stresses and I can’t be bothered with all this online drama on top of that.
So consider me on semi-hiatus.
I’ll still be around to talk to friends, reply to messages & reblog/make the occasional post, but it’ll be at least until my exam on May 14th when I’ll be done with uni until I do any more than that.
I still love Sherlock, I still love Johnlock, I still love the parts of the fandom that don’t spread queerphobic ignorance or call people delusional or say that they’re ‘ruining the fandom’ or drive people away or send them death threats for expressing an opinion or acting like tv shows are objective or promote disturbing misogynistic ‘AUs’ involving domestic violence and murder, but those parts that do are making tumblr increasingly unenjoyable for me.
I still plan to write Conversation(s) With Other Men and I’m not giving up writing meta - that’ll be the day! - but I need a breather, and to take a step back, because this is not a healthy environment to be spending so much of my time in.
See you around, be good people, and don’t forget that there’s a world outside of wifi.

It’s important to talk about how vaccines don’t cause autism, but can we please also talk about how much people must hate autism if they’d rather expose their child to polio, measles and chickenpox than autism?
THIS. I feel like asking every anti-vac parent “Why would you rather have a dead child than an autistic one?” I think these parents ought to explain their stance to a group of autistic adults.

Irene would definitely have a massive kink for Janine’s accent. And one day Janine would reveal that she can speak Gaelic and she’d use it in bed all the time (and sometimes in public to make Irene squirm)
okay but imagine sherlock and john sharing a milkshake with two straws like at one of those oldie style cafes and they keep edging closer and closer together and by the time the milkshake is finished they’re cuddled up together in the booth corner with sherlock’s head resting on john’s shoulder and john’s arms wrapped tight around his boyfriend (❁´▽`❁)
Hello! Since school is over for me, I am opening my commissions again. I draw any fandom, and also OCs. For the full bodied + detailed background commissions those really depend on what you’re asking for so a price cannot really be given unless you email me about it! =D I draw anything, though I usually keep it sfw. If you have a particular day you need a commission by please let me know in advance.
For any further questions, or if you would like to commission me, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org!
THANK YOU I post selfies a lot but I was cat called the other day and I nearly cried, and a lot of people have this attitude of ‘Yes but its a compliment’
UGH I HATE THAT
I’m vain as shit, I love being complimented on my appearance, but there is a HUGE difference between “You look really pretty today!” and “SUCK MY DICK”
