Q:He doesn't have a crush on anyone. He's asexual and it's stated my many sources. It's written that the only person he has a physical attraction to is Irene Adler, which is also made present in the fact that she's still in his head even after years apart.
This is a joke right ?
Oh, anon, if you’re going to claim ‘many sources’, you’d better be ready to cite them. How about I cite some for you?
Steven Moffat: ‘It’s the choice of a monk, not the choice of an asexual. If he was asexual, there would be no tension in that, no fun in that – it’s someone who abstains who’s interesting. There’s no guarantee that he’ll stay that way in the end – maybe he marries Mrs Hudson. I don’t know!’
[Discussion of that here.]
Benedict Cumberbatch: ‘Well, I see no reason at all why he shouldn’t be sexual. Everyone recruited him to their perspective, their interpretation. I’ve had asexuals come up to me and thank me for representing asexuals. I don’t know how that came about. I mean, the man’s too busy to have sex. That’s really what is it. Not every man has a sex drive that needs to be attended to. Like a lot of things in his life where he’s purposely dehumanized himself, it’s to do with not wanting the stuff that is time wasting, that’s messy. That goes for certain relationships, as well as sexual intimacy.’
Mark Gatiss: ‘Well, she’s gay and he’s only interested in brainwork […] and yet something happens. But it doesn’t have to be something as mundane as a love story. It’s far more interesting than that.’
I am also sick to death of people failing to distinguish between sexual and romantic attraction. They are not synonymous. Being asexual does not necessarily make you aromantic. Even if Sherlock was asexual, he could still experience romantic attraction (i.e. ‘crushes’) and fall in love.
A World Ahead - A Johnlock fix-it-fic
Chapter 3 : The Great Game
It was as if the atmosphere shifted and all the adrenaline, the stress, the anger and the fury united, begging for release. Without thinking Sherlock grabbed John’s head with both hands and pulled him down within an inch of his own face. Their eyes locked and Sherlock could read everything that raced through John’s mind in those dark blue eyes: anger, surprise, hurt, interest - arousal.
'If I were to kiss you now, would you let me?' he whispered.
'Try me,' John growled.
Martin’s concern for my ego is a very touching thing, and I’d like to return the compliment by saying, just don’t tell him anything about the way he looks, what he’s dressed like, how his acting is superlative, how his comic timing is nonpareil. Just don’t say any of that shit, just keep it really humble with him, you know? He’s a little guy, but he has a huge, burgeoning ego as well.
My coworker’s 19 year old son died in a car accident late Tuesday evening. We found out yesterday morning. My heart broke for my coworker and his family. All day I held back to tears and thought about how I would hug my kids when I got home and tell all the people I love that I…
The closure of BBC3 is to be proposed by the broadcaster’s director general, the Guardian understands, bringing the curtain down on the youth-oriented TV channel after 11 years.
Tony Hall is expected to announce later this month that he is axing the channel – which first aired programmes ranging from Gavin and Stacey to Hotter Than My Daughter – as part of a plan to save £100m a year. Read more
