Top Ten Tuesday (TTT) brought to you by The Broke and the Bookish.
April 4: Fandom Freebie — top ten fandoms I’m in, 10 reasons X fandom is the best, must have merchandise for x fandom, etc. etc.
I should probably stop here and mention that NONE of the graphics this week are mine. They are all fabulous finds of mine on Pinterest. If you so desire, you can visit me over at my I am SHERlocked board for more.
There are so many great fandoms out there. Books, TV, and movies are the ones I gravitate to. Harry Potter. Star Wars. Doctor Who. All things Disney. Gilmore Girls. Veronica Mars. Pretty Little Liars. You get the idea. But there is one fandom for me that sparkles just a little more than any other.
Of course, I’m going with the fabulous SHERLOCK fandom this week. (No one is surprised by this announcement, I’m sure.)
Now, for those of you unfamiliar with BBC Sherlock, it is a wonderfully fantastic show staring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, filled with short seasons and extraordinarily long hiatuses in between. The show has been on the air since January 2010, and we Sherlockians now have a grand total of 13 episodes to watch. Oh, yes. You read that right. THIRTEEN episodes. Three per season (or series, as they say in the UK), four seasons (series), and a 2016 Christmas special.
So the Sherlock Fandom has a lot of time on it’s hands to get silly while awaiting our next fix. (Which sadly now may be never, there may not be a season five. *sigh* But I digress…)
TTT: Silliness in the Sherlock Fandom
As I trolled through my Pinterest board, I knew there was no way I could keep this to just 10 silly gifs. Sorry. (Not sorry.) You get a lot of silliness this week. So much so that I lost count. 😉 (You know I can talk about Sherlock all day long, right?) BUT I did group them together for your viewing pleasure. Click on the pictures for a larger, easier-on-the-eyes version.
Somehow the fandom started comparing pictures of Benedict to pictures of otters. Then Martin Freeman to hedgehogs. It was all downhill from there.
These are ridiculous. And make me giggle.
Sherlockians. We are a weird bunch.
Just a couple of examples of the silliness that hiatus brings.
More Hiatus Fun (OK, Just Really Long Graphics I Grouped Together)
These are super narrow pictures from Pinterest. I shrunk them to fit on the page, but they are hilarious. Open for a closer look.
Welcome to the Sherlock Fandom.
What Fandom did you highlight this week? I can’t wait to hear about it and what makes it so fantastic! Are you a Sherlockian too? (Or a Cumbercookie? Or both?) Sign off below and link up to your own TTT if you’ve got one!
