i-o-u-sherlock asked: Mormor headcanon: Sebastian has a collection of ridiculous graphic tshirts that say things like 'I love boys' or 'no one knows I'm a lesbian'. Jim often sleeps in these because they are the most worn of all his clothes, and smell the most like his tiger.


Oh, oh, this is so cute.

Can you imagine Jim wearing a ‘No one knows I’m a lesbian’, with messy hair and eyes all crunchy grom sleeping and all sleepy with a coffee cup and Moran can’t help but thinking it’s one of the most adorable things.

  • Sebastian Moran knowing exactly where to touch Jim to make him scream.
  • Sebastian Moran who can tell whether Jim wants to be touched or not.
  • Sebastian Moran, first class bastard, being gentle and cautious when Jim’s in one of his broody moods.
  • Or rough and hard, if that’s what Jim needs.
  • Sebastian Moran being the one person who gets to see Jim Moriarty sweating, moaning and wreathing in pleasure.
  • Jim Moriarty knowing that his right-hand man’s more than, but neither of them will ever address the issue.

Is it just me or does he kind of sound really sad at the fact that no one could ever understand him? It’s that distant sort of echo that rings hollow because Jim knows no one would be there to buffer that empty-room sound. He just looks so disappointed at the entire world, and he’s just so alone, just stayin’ alive.

That’s what I like about this show. The characters aren’t all completely evil or completely good. Even if Moriarty looks evil, he’s just really really lonely, which then causes him to shut the world out and blow it up. 

Just look at his eyes. The way his eyes look at the ground is as if he is dreaming about having somebody in his life. Not a girl, or boy, friend perhaps but maybe just a friend. Somebody he can count on. Like John is for Sherlock. In the platonic sense. Being as cold on the outside as Moriarty you don’t get the chance to make friends. He just wants somebody to understand the real him. 

He may look young and attractive but his eyes look so old. Like they are tired of all the terror and all the trouble he causes because he is alone. All alone. He’s been fighting people for so long and he has nobody to show off to. Not even Sherlock because in the end, Sherlock is just an ordinary person. Moriarty has no one. Jim has no one. 

I remember his tone of voice from this part and I have to say, it sounds a lot like I do sometimes. Trying to seem strong. Powerful. In charge. When in fact, you aren’t. 

Andrew Scott, can I just say, you are an amazing actor, Sir. The amount of emotionality you convey in just … barely even 5 minutes air time. It is perfect. You can send chills up our spines, you can make us laugh and make us curse. Turns out you can also make us feel sorry for your character. That and you bring so much style and elegance to the role. 

The best Moriarty I have ever seen. Far above the original. Far above Granada. You, Sir, are brilliant.

I’ve seen a few fashion posts trying to expand the “Marie Antoinette is not Victorian” rant, but this stuff can get complicated, so here is a semi-comprehensive list so everyone knows exactly when all of these eras were.

Please note that this is very basic and that there are sometimes subcategories (especially in the 17th century, Jacobean, Restoration, etc)

And people wonder WHY I complain about History/Art History periodization. Note how much overlap there is to the above “eras”, and how many exceptions and extensions there are to these categories.

Oh, and by the way…















Because you wouldn’t want to be historically inaccurate.
