I don’t typically post filming pics but I’m taking fridafrag’s helpful warning to heart, and mentioning that I’m going to be especially careful around spoilers this time. I won’t be reblogging anything more spoiler-y than the typical Moffat/Gattis vague teasing hints, because I respect those who are really really trying hard not to be spoiled and I’d rather not be spoiled myself. Plus, see above. Let’s not make Benedict self-conscious - what could be more self-defeating than making the actors not work at their best?
Sherlock Holmes is an Oscar winner in the midst of a career slump. John Watson is an Everyman actor trapped in the rom-com ghetto. When they are cast as a gay couple in a new independent drama, will they surprise each other? Will their on-screen romance make its way into the real world?
So…do you guys ever, I don’t know, sort of forget that Sherlock and John actually live together? Like, I’ll be tootling along in fandom life, no worries, and suddenly it’ll hit me again that they sleep in the same place and share groceries and their toothbrushes are probably in the same cup and see each other in jammies and just out of the shower? This is not some fanon construct we’ve put them in because of reasons. They’re not colleagues and friends and we ship them so we pretend they live together. They really live together.
