#OH FINALLY#Sherlock#this is how I see Sherlock#this is how I get angry when people say he’s an asshole#or when people don’t realize how much he has to cope with without knowing how tags via wintermindpalace
YES! Thank you Lu! One reason I was able to love S3 so much was we finally got a glimpse of what goes on in Sherlock’s head and how Sherlock perceives the world.
1) Sherlock is NOT kind to himself. In TEH we begin to see it. John’s voice in his head is derogatory, negative, unkind. And it continues throughout the series, all the way to the culmination in his mind palace where there is not ONE kind soul to him. No one is nice to him in his head. And maybe it’s because that’s how Mycroft has trained him to be, but still. Sherlock has never learned to care about himself, his body, his well-being. Only his mind. And even his mind is unkind.
2) Sherlock perceives everyone as wanting something from him. Be smart, be intelligent, solve it, please can you fix it for me. He and Jim Moriarty are much alike, but mirror opposites still. Is it any wonder Moriarty has a special place in his mind palace? Everyone wants something from Sherlock, and Sherlock is never one to disappoint when it comes to those he cares about.
3) We call Sherlock selfish a lot. And yes, he is, but geeze, given how he sees himself and those around him, really who are the selfish ones?
Sherlock can be an asshole, can be selfish, but he is also, at heart, a person who wants to do good, who wants to please, and who is still that child left feeling different and hurt, like no one wants him because he is so different. S3 really gives us a lot to think about, does it not?

Yup, we’re called Tumblr XD
Maaaan this is such a bull shit quote. It makes Benedict’s fans - as a whole - sound like like a bunch of cult, loony followers. It has such a stalkery smell about it. Myself and many others are not that warped to think that we “do not care what he does” - It’s like they’re saying some things he does or says doesn’t annoy me and that whatever he does in the future i would 100% behind. I am a huge supporter of his, don’t get me wrong but he isn’t perfect. I don’t see him as a perfect human being. Just like everyone, he says some silly things and no doubt does them too. Damn, ‘as long as they get to observe him doing it’ paints us all like brainless sheep that are fumbling in his general direction, completely brainless robotic little girls. Some may argue with me on that, but i certainly speak for a few people - we certainly are not THAT. Such a douche bag fucking quote. I’m sick to the back teeth of fan shaming and the bad stories always outweighing the good. I have heard some pretty fucking awful stories but i’ve heard more amazing ones. I’ll get blind ass drunk the day i see a reporter or Benedict instead talking about all the money his ‘rabid’ fans have raised for charity. But i won’t because i guess that shit don’t sell. Tired of reading ‘they call themselves the Cumberbitches?’ and see Benedict awkwardly tip toe his way of the question. It’s bollocks, a little bit of research goes a long way. Some of his fans do amazing things and these amazing acts should something he should be proud of and get to be able to mention instead.(via cumberbuddy)
are we not just a loony cult who assembles on this website to flail over him though? I feel like we’re reaching supernatural levels.(via johnisagirlname)
You sir… I love you ^^^
