Okay, okay. Pardon any typos I don’t catch, this new keyboard is bent to be shaped more like hands except my hands are bent to be shaped like a normal keyboard. The S is where I expect the A to be.

This is a personal post relating to sexuality and self discovery and related whatnots after the read more break. It’s shorter than most of my other personal posts, though.

(Oh. The reason I haven’t posted anything in a while is because my older brother is back from college and he’s a computer geek and so he had to fix up all of our minor computer problems which meant other people were adjusting to the computers and I could not use them.)

So today, I found something that I ship.

This is very strange, because I don’t even particularly care about romance in things that have little to do with romance. In Harry Potter fanfiction, of course, I love it when Luna’s paired with Harry or Neville simply because she is such an awesome character and I never particularly liked Ginny. Although I may simply be jealous because all of the people I’ve had major crushes on are fictional, and she ended up with her childhood crush.

Cough. Cough.

So you know how I said a long time ago that I don’t particularly like Johnlock because it sort of implies that two people can’t have a platonic and loving relationship?

It was also sort of because I’m asexual, I suppose, and fictional characters having sex is rather boring to me, not to mention very annoying when it interrupts the plot.

But apparently this entire notion is thrown out the window when Sherlock is asexual in a fic and John doesn’t care and they have happy romantic cuddle tiems while talking about things important to the plot.

I ship Aexual!Sherlock/John.

It seems a bit horrible though, because what, I only enjoy romantic fics in which my favorite character shares my sexual orientation? But I think, considering the sexual orientation in question, it isn’t that unexpected.

While I’m typing up my post, here’s another revelation: I saw someone make a joke about Mycroft being cake-sexual. One thing that some asexuals like to say, in order to explain their orientation to people or just to be silly, is that they’d rather eat cake than have sex.

So now I’ve been thinking about how what if Mycroft is asexual and aromantic and Anthea (or whatever her name is) is his zucchini? (A zucchini is a name for a person you’re in a close platonic relationship with.)

So this is me.

Shipping things.

How do you people function when everyone could be shipped with everyone else?  This is insane! I would say I didn’t expect this much emotion, but by the Klaine posts I’ve been seeing lately I sort of did. I just didn’t expect to find myself an OTP. Johnlock is my OTP. That is a weird sentence, isn’t it? Oh, this will be interesting.

There needs to be a tag for this

Because I must not be the only asexual Sherlockian out there. (Well, I know for a fact that one of the people I’m mutually following is one. HI! But there must be more of us out there.) I often say things that have to do with Sherlock and also have to do with my asexuality, because in all honesty I only figured out I was asexual by reading a Sherlock/Harry Potter crossover fanfic written explicitly for Asexual Awareness.

Yeeeeah. It was sort of recent, actually, but not super recent as you can see that I’m aware at the very start of this blog, back from when I didn’t really understand how tumblr was supposed to work. And I started this blog at least last year sometime, but after I discovered Sherlock, so sometime after… November.

Just a teenager figuring myself out, here.

My point is that there needs to be a tag that says that a post has to do with both Sherlock and the poster’s asexuality. I propose it be “Asexual Sherlockian”, because “Asexual Sherlock” implies that Sherlock is the one who’s asexual. Although that should be a tag as well, if that’s a main topic of the post.

Another Date Related Post, with the MBTI and the Sherlock

I just think of the most awkward titles ever for my blog posts, apparently.

Right, yeah. Okay.

HEY LOOK I did research and figured out how to actually work the Read More break! I bet you’re wondering, “Hey, you, last post it almost seemed as if you half expected it to work. What exactly did you try?”

And I will not tell you what I tried, because it’s too silly and embarrassing.

"Everyone’s been asking us if we’re going any further with the relationship between John and Sherlock, and I’m thinking, well, why not? I really don’t see the problem with it, and Mark (Gatiss) has already asked us if it would be an issue if we were to kiss on screen. Of course he was joking, but I wouldn’t mind at all.” — Martin Freeman




please, please, moftiss. this one. I will never ask you or any fandom for anything ever again.

can you imagine what would happen to the fandom if it happened!! 

Reblogging again for those gifs.


As a non-Johnlocker who realized she was asexual largely because of Sherlock… I don’t know what to feel about this. I think it would be somewhat disappointing and I think if it happened, I would need a shock blanket. I would curl into a ball and not be able to read any fanfiction or even look at tumblr for several days. And then I would glance at one or the other and shrink back into my ball because they would still be happy dancing about it.

I know there must be at least a few other people out here who would have this sort of reaction for these sorts of reasons, but I can never find any. I don’t have any super strong opinions against Johnlock in fanfiction when it’s accompanied by good plot, but if it were to become canon - well, fuck.

But for the enjoyment of the rest of you, here’s a thought: What if John yanked Sherlock to his lips and kissed him instead of fainting or punching him in the face after he comes back from the dead? (I think I might actually be okay with that if they didn’t put a whole bunch of focus on their relationship, except for the fact that it means one of the media’s main pictures of asexuality is a lie. That scene would just be so adorable and emotionally charged.)
