I’m just really tired and sad of seeing so much Mary Morstan hate.

Johnlock is fantastic. I ship it. But Sherlock is not a show about your OTP. If anything, it’s trying to be as faithful to the canon as possible in a modern setting. Bringing a canon character into it and making a canon couple come true should not in any way prevent you from shipping johnlock, seeing it was not canon in the first place.

THIS!

Amanda asked us to pass on her thanks to all of you who work so hard to keep those photographs of her kids down. She really appreciates it and this is a matter obviously very close to her heart. If anyone EVER gives any of you sass for asking those pictures to be taken down, point them to this screencap here. Point them to this quote from our interview with her.

Kristina: I think, in general, how fandom works, it’s sort of like this big family, and if anyone acts out, it’s like, immediately, “You need to stop that!”

Amanda: Yeah, it’s great. You’re protective of the show and of Martin and Ben and the people that they love, and that’s one of the things that I love. I do. I love it. It’s really sweet and caring, and, like, everyone was very sweet when the picture of our children went up. Everyone was really lovely, and they were kind of very protective. Of course, we can’t do anything about that. It’s an unsolicited photograph. I had no idea it’d been taken, and the next thing, it was up. Martin and I are very, very careful about not involving our children in any of this, but you know, they have to see their dad. We have to go down and see him, and you can’t stop people from photographing. We are so careful about not getting them involved in anything.

Kristina: Yeah, I know.

Amanda: Everybody was very lovely about making sure that came down.

Kristina: I haven’t seen it for a while. I think the issue was that when they first went up, there was a big attack. It was like, “Take it down!” And then new people came in with Series 2, and they didn’t realize. I hope that it’s well aware now.

Amanda: Yeah, it’s lovely, and I really appreciate it. It means a lot to me that you care about that concern. Thank you. I do appreciate it.
She has been so kind and so sweet to fandom, the least we could do is to be amazing back to her.

OK so the photos we found on instagram of Martin & Amanda’s children have been removed, but they may have spread, so please keep an eye out and report them the moment you see them.

bakerstreetbabes:

If people want to know what to write in the report, you can use this.

This is an unsolicited photograph of Martin Freeman and Amanda Abbington’s children. They have stated numerous times that they did not want the photograph circulated online and have asked for its removal.

Scandinavian Sherlockians: The Origins of the Fandom Part 2

scandisherlockians:

Some time ago I posted ‘The Origins to the Fandom’ It was list of the origins of fandom’s little shenanigans such as ‘The Jam’ ‘Anderson and the dinosaur ’ and ‘The cat jumper’ . I wasn’t expecting it to become any popular. But I was wrong and soon it will reach 1000 notes….
