Benedict Cumberbatch singing and playing piano in August: Osage County.
My friend and I went to the premiere yesterday in NYC and I managed to record some of the bits Benedict appeared in. We weren’t expecting all this and my friend GRABBED my hand when this started happening. Overwhelming tbh i want none of it get it away
“He says ‘fuck’ frequently and adjectivally. Yet he ends the meeting saying confidently, ‘At least I managed not to swear,’ and then looks genuinely distressed to discover he had in fact been swearing throughout it.”—Interview with Martin Freeman (x)
Dear people attending the Sherlock premiere in 3 days,
first off, Congratulations. secondly,
PLEASE NO SPOILERS. PUT IT IN A READ MORE PLEASE. DEAR GOD PLEASE DON’T MAKE A BIG POST ABOUT HOW SHERLOCK DID IT OR HOW JOHN FEELS OR WHATEVER THAT PEOPLE MIGHT SEE UNINTENTIONALLY. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD PLEASE
yours is the first sherlock/pokemon headcanon I've seen where John doesn't have a growlithe/arcanine! what do you think about Jim? I'm unsure about a full team but something tells me he'd have a zorua in there somewhere
Oh, hello! I’m so happy to talk about pokemon headcanons U3U
I don’t know why! I sometimes consider that he might have an Arcanine. He just has to have a big dog pokemon. I just, whenever I see Stoutland I think it’s very much a John pokemon. Maybe it’s the moustache?
It’s much more unassuming than Arcanine, I think that’s why I prefer it.
I haven’t thought as much about Jim, but I think he’d definitely have a Zorua. Him being a criminal mastermind and all, I always picture him with one of those stereotypical criminal mastermind pokemon e.g. Persian or Purrloin. Something grass/poison, maybe a Vileplume? Though I honestly think he’d have some really flashy rare pokemon. Shiny something. Something on the Gastly evolution chain. I need to think more!!!
Also, secret Lestrade headcanon includes Granbull because I just love the idea of Lestrade with a cute lil fairy pokemon.
One day I will actual sit down and come up with a full list of Pokemon team head canons for every Sherlock character, but I usually think:
John: Sandshrew, Stoutland, Chansey, something like a Gallade (he just needs a fighting type) and yeah that’s it for now. I’d imagine him going for mostly sturdy, functional Pokemon, and they’d probably be good in a desert, hence Sandshrew. Maybe Scrafty, since I have a soft spot for those.
Sherlock would have some pretty impressive Pokemon, definitely like one of the scientist types in the game. I see him with a Reuniclus, something like a Rotom or Deoxys, probably a Muk, and some cool dark type like a Murkrow or Umbreon. A lot of dark and poison. Ooh, a porygon!
Mycroft would just be the guy with five drowzees and a hypno that fuck over everybody in his path.
Maybe a chandelure. I’d say a slowbro or sloking too, except those don’t seem… Dignified… Enough…
