Can we take a moment to talk about how Sherlock’s real first name is William?


Did he used to call himself Bootstrap Bill when he was younger when he was pretending to be a pirate? 

Like, did his mom and dad call him Billy until one day, after they put Redbeard down, he told them he wanted to be called Sherlock from now on? Because after that, being a pirate wasn’t fun anymore.

Because what was the point of being a pirate if he didn’t have Redbeard with him? 

And by changing his name to and becoming Sherlock, he was able to harden his shell and expel emotions. He pushed away his dreams of becoming a pirate, all those feelings he had, all that sentiment, locking them away with Billy and focused on his intellect.

Where Mycroft stepped in, teaching Sherlock how to hone his skills: How to master his brain and the world around him. Allowing Billy to slip farther and farther away, and allow Sherlock to come to the surface.

And now, whenever Sherlock gets in too deep, Mycroft reminds him of Redbeard. To keep Sherlock from hurting himself again. 

To keep Billy from coming back. 


you. little. shit.

Go sit in the fucking corner and think what you’ve done

Those at YOU HQ who were still sitting on the Benedict Cumberbatch fence practically flung themselves over it on seeing this vision in a wet shirt. BC found his inner Darcy for a shoot with Jason Bell (he of cute Prince George photo fame), who was commissioned by TK Maxx to shoot a variety of famous faces, including Liam Neeson, Kate Winslet and Jerry Hall, to celebrate ten years of its Give Up Clothes For Good campaign, which has raised more than £17 million for Cancer Research. Bell’s photographs will be exhibited at La Galleria on Pall Mall, London, from Tuesday until Saturday.

John Watson loves tea so much that he can’t take his eyes off it.

Priorities, sorted.

I actually laugh like a lunatic every time I see this.

This will forever be my favorite thing.

You could pour that tea a bit faster, Mycroft.

Hurry up now with that tea, Mycroft.

Sherlock you’re stealing all the attention away from the tea.

I really want that tea.
