This scene was actually when I went from feeling more or less neutral on Joan to actively disliking her.

Because wow, that was patronizing.

I loved that scene in Elementary.

1) Firstly, because it immediately deconstructs the “hero throws and breaks something in frustration” cliche (Sherlock throwing a glass slide in HoB, anyone?) it might even be seen as a parody of that cliche.

2) Secondly, because the dynamic is different between a man and a woman than it would be between two women or two men, the visual of a man smashing something in a temper in front of a woman can be taken as threatening or borderline abusive. Joan Watson immediately shows that she is not intimidated by Holmes’ behavior.

3) Lastly? One of the running themes of Elementary is the deconstruction of Sherlock Holmes as the solitary, antisocial genius, and his becoming a member of a community. Holmes’ gifts are given their due respect, but no one in Elementary plays the game of Because Sherlock Holmes is a Bloody Genius He Can Do Whatever He Wants So There. When Sherlock goes after Moriarty (“M”), Captain Gregson suspends him. When Sherlock doesn’t want to talk about his addiction, Alfredo says “You’ve got to get over yourself.” And when Sherlock behaves like a spoiled child, Joan tells him “Use your words.”

You see Joan patronizing Sherlock. I see a member of Sherlock’s community teaching him how to behave like an adult member of that community.

Additionally, Watson’s done good work for a number of years as a sober companion, not a manchild enabler. It’s quite literally her job to deconstruct people’s shitty self-defeating habits and demonstrate that there are better ways to live your life. She’s not in the business of humoring anyone or playing along with their tantrums, she’s in the business of fixing them. And what she does works! It gets spelled out explicitely in the text of the show: Sherlock himself admits that what’s changed about him, for the better, is her. 

I really want to see this show now.

But the Tatum story was really cute, I am so sure he only thought POSITIVE things about you!
Thanks but did I tell you that I was so giddy after the con that I ended up sending him a package for Christmas as a thank you present? I’m sure he thinks I’m a creeper lol. But thank you lol. It is my FAVORITE story from that con. It REALLY saved me that experience. Truly was going through a lot. But still…I wish I didn’t cry lol.
ALSO…if I in fact go back to AAC this year, and he’s there…what’s he gonna think if he recognizes me? I would feel so silly. I’ll wear my groucho marx glasses lol.
As requested, a pic of my face. Some sing in the shower, other use toys as props and sing while wrapped in their Batman blankets at 3am.

Anonymous asked: oops, picture, quality (that's not a sentence, it's for the Ask questions meme lol)

Oops: What’s one thing you’d like to fix? Hmm…well on a personal level I honestly would’ve liked to fix how I acted like a fool in front of Mr. Tatum ^^; I think the dude thinks I’m quite goofy lol

Picture: Post a pic of your lovely face. Awe…thank you. I shall.

Quality: Name your three favorite blogs. OH…that’s why you’re on anon lol. Uh…I don’t like playing favorites with internet pals hon. Sorry ^^; I love all of the blogs I follow/follow me that I interact with for their own unique qualities and just don’t feel fair judging 3 as better than the others. <3

batsuit-butt asked: Okay the question thingy... Blue, Game, Read, Money, Naughty?

Blue: What song do you listen to when down? Currently it is Wrecking Ball by Miley Cyrus

Game: Last board game you played? Well I believe that was something called Arkym Horror, a complex but awesome game with the right peeps.

Read: Last book you read? The Big Bang Theory and Philosophy

Money: What would you do with 1 million? Well I’d pay my student loans off. I’d give some to my mom, my brother, my dad and his family, and if there was some left over I’d divide it for my friends and charities.

Naughty: Three things parents disapprove of? I’m not too sure really…Laziness (particularly my giving up on my physical fitness), selfishness (eating the last of something when someone didn’t get something is an example) Arguements (they don’t approve of arguements between me and my brother specifically and will often interfer)

Chronically ill dragons.

Dragons who try to avoid breathing fire as much as possible because it hurts.

Dragons with PTSD.

Dragons who can’t fly anymore and miss it so much they get depressed until they take up diving as a hobby.

Blind dragons.

Dragons with allergies.

One of my characters is going to collect pennies going back to 1900 and she’s going to attach them to a massive time line poster board thing and all the way up until modern day she’s going to have these pennies. Below each penny will be important dates from that year. Like 1931, underneath there would be serious issues and stuff but there would also be stuff like Dracula Staring Bela Lugosi came out.
