I have this headcanon where Joan was attacked years ago but she escaped. The guy was never caught. She has to tell Sherlock, Gregson and Bell about it when the guy begins killing again and taunting her, leaving these horrific- yet cleverly artistic- crime scenes with messages to her. And it scares Sherlock because he’s never seen anything like it.
I need to stop watching Hannibal before I watch Elementary.
pet peeve: people misspelling Lucy Liu’s surname
just wanted to say thank you for this post because i just realized i HAVE been misspelling it.
In the defense of some of us who have been doing so, when the tumblr auto tags come up for her name, lui is the main option, so that’s why I’ve always just chosen it. I never even noticed to be honest; this is the first thing i’ve ever really cared about Lucy being in, so I didn’t realize that wasn’t how her name was spelled. It’s not a purposeful oversight so it may not be for other people, either. I love her!

I love how there’s 1 single image of Sherlock fighting with Mycroft and the entire fandom knows it’s because something has happened to Joan. I mean, there’s no context to the image and there are any number of reasons he could be angry at him. We all just want Joan to be in danger so badly! We all want to see Sherlock go crazy with worry and go to the ends of the earth to get to her.
I mean… I think we’re going to be disappointed if she’s totally fine.
What’s wrong with us? ; )
I will never allow any harm to come to you.
Can you even imagine…
What you’ve been to me.
…and miles to go before i sleep.
…and grant me the wisdom to know the difference.
The truth is.
I’ve been looking for good JoanLock vids today and really only found a few. There are so many upbeat vids using really poppy music that I don’t like…or the editing is less than stellar. But I have to say, this is probably one of the best vids I’ve seen. The editing is amazing and the quality is great. The song is a really great match. More subtle and… mature, I guess the word is. Great job to the vidder.

Why is everyone romanticizing Moriarty? Why are people saying her letter is genuine or she loves Holmes? She is a
s-o-c-i-o-p-a-t-h. Say it with me. Even she admits she can’t make connections. Holmes doesn’t miss her. He misses what he THOUGHT he had with a woman he knew as Irene.
That letter was a manipulation… She’s incapable of love.
Reasons why I’m super uncomfortable with Joan/Moriarty.
Thank you for SOMEONE saying this! It drives me mad when people make her out to be some ‘epic love’. Moriarty is a person who used Sherlock to her own ends and when he became too inconvenient she faked her own death in the way she knew would destroy him the most.
Sometimes I wonder if the roles were reversed and this was some guy who did this to Joan, would people still act like it’s so romantic? Or would they see him as the abusive and evil bad guy he was?
I think people watch those ‘Irene’ scenes and think about how romantic they were but forget that Irene was a lie. She liked Sherlock, in the only way she really could. As much as a cat likes a toy mouse to play with. She wouldn’t kill him to put him out of his misery… she just takes him out to torture whenever the mood strikes her.
What we saw of her was just the human suit she wore to hide who she really was. In fact, the closest we saw to who Moriarty really was was when she kidnapped Joan at that restaurant. And there we see that she was an ostentatious, uppity, self-satisfied, arrogant bitch who is the exact opposite of who Sherlock fell in love with or would fall in love with. Since then, we haven’t really seen the real her.
I also wish Sherlock would stop writing to her. I just find that so… awful. Not only is it disrespectful to Joan— the woman threatened her life— but he should be smart enough by now to see who she really is and recognize that she’s just another drug. He’s enabling himself by writing to her as though she’s the only one in the world who understands him. He should know by now that that isn’t the case anymore.
I wish people would stop making it seem like they’re so deep and epic. Same with Joan/Moriarty. But at least that is more fantasy… it’s not an actual basis of the show.

I’m normally not into this type of music, but the video editing is wonderfully done. I don’t get how people don’t ship them… or ship them with other people. I just will never understand it. They are endgame. All the way. Till the wheels fall off. Other people might as well not exist.
