I hate it when you get those books where the first couple are fucking awesome, and then you read the next one, or the last one and it’s just nope.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DON’T SCROLL PAST THIS.
Scarleteen is a vital queer and trans positive sexual health resource. Their staff do an amazing job of creating really comprehensive and helpful articles on literally every sexual topic you can imagine. They also provide live chats, advice columns, moderated discussion forums, and SMS-based peer support. This site has helped me on countless occasions, and I refer at-risk queer and trans kids to this site every single day.
Scarleteen is invaluable.
And Scarleteen needs your help.
During their annual donation drive this year, the site was only able to raise $1,500. Only fifty people out of Scarleteen’s 350,000 unique monthly visitors contributed to the fundraising drive.
This means that unless Scarleteen sees a stable, sustained, 50% increase in donations, the site will essentially be forced to go dark on May 1. No more new content, no more advice columns, no more forums, no more live chat, no more SMS support. 
This is devastating.
If Scarleteen goes dark, millions of young people, vulnerable queer and trans teens among them, will lose access to essential, fundamental sexual health resources. We cannot let this happen.
Please, please, please donate to Scarleteen. Consider making a recurring monthly contribution if you feel that this is within your means. Even $5 or $10 a month will go a long way to helping this very, very deserving organization.
And whether or not you’re able to donate at this time, please signal boost this and spread the word. Scarleteen does incredible, very necessary work, and they need our help.

To be honest, my ideal way for Johnlock to be revealed is just in the final episode of the last series, after everything has fallen apart and put back together again, the ultimate case has been solved, John and Sherlock are standing together; the camera pans slowly down and we see that they are holding hands.
Cue end credits.

In defense of slash pairings

This is something I’ve been pondering for some time now, and I hope I can phrase it intelligently enough not to sound daft. I only recently joined the wonderful world of fandom, being drawn in by my love of Sherlock and then sticking around because of the wonderful friends I’ve made. I’m also one of the many who ships the romantic pairing of John and Sherlock. In fact, quite a few of my main ships (e.g.Merlin x Arthur, ) are gay pairings. I’ve in a sense been lucky, as by being fairly quiet I tend to avoid some of the crueler accusations that come with shipping male/male pairings (“you’re fetishising homosexuality” and the like) But taking a look around(and please excuse my generalization here) the majority of popular pairings are male/male. Why?

People such as wsswatson and sherkeys have made some incredible posts delving into homo-erotic subtext and it’s draw which I would advise you to read (I’d link them but I’m only semi-technology literate), but one point that I haven’t yet seen made is that a lot of the tv shows and films we love have male led casts. For example, in Sherlock the show centers around two detailed, flawed male protagonists who we have seen interacting constantly with each other and whose faults and personalities have been explored in depth. The main secondary characters (Lestrade and Mycroft), also male. Even Anderson has been bumped up. Now, I’m not denying that the show has great female characters- Molly has (thankfully) had some decent plot development in S3, I personally thing Sally is fabulous and whatever your opinions on her actions nobody can deny Mary is a badass. But is it any wonder so many fans fall for male/male ships when the male characters are so often more developed and complex? 

It took me a very long time to realise people were saying ‘I will cut you’ not ‘I will gut you’

No wonder my fish jokes made no sense..

Just because I ship fictional characters portrayed by actors does not mean that I ship the actual actors.

Just because I find it cute when actors have a legitimate friendship does not mean that I ship the actual actors.

I am not discriminating against those who do, I just want to be clear.

I would just like to point out that I have never watched a single episode of Teen Wolf, yet have somehow become massively invested in Sterek, TW fanfiction, and Erica.. I do not know how this happened.

Also, why did nobody ever tell me Stiles isn’t the main character? I have literally JUST found this out?

Has anyone read the starcrossed trilogy?

Because I love it and I need to talk about it and fangirl about Orion and Lucas and hector and everyone

1st two books broke my brain.. last not so much :/

I didn’t like the ending of the last book.. But I think I’ll reread then in easter holidays :)

I tend to only re-read the first two- I felt like the last one went a bit too twilight-y. But Orion, Lucas and Hector are probably some of my favourite male characters ever!
