Sherlock AU: It’s been a couple years but Sherlock’s time after the fall still haunts him.
i keep wondering if there were any jaeger pilots who, after a successful kaiju killing, just couldn’t wait a second to have a little victory dance. and thousands of confused citizens look out to sea and see a jaeger pelvic thrusting into the sunset.

I love Jim Carrey. I once met him in a 7/11, and I was getting a soda, I turned and saw it was him, and he saw I was going for a Doctor Pepper, so he said “Oh did you want one of these”, to which I stuttered out a yes and he grabbed all of them and said “too bad” and brought them up to the front. Then he bought his stuff and left the sodas there, and left. Almost immediately after, he ran back in and began putting the sodas back and paid for mine.This is what happens when Candians are let lose and try to prank people
Robin De Noir is a bandit who arrived in Pandora mid-January. After spending his first few months in Pandora in the woods, he headed to Horizon, stumbling into a handful of sticky situations along…
Interesting cases only please.
I’ve seen this image going around, and I feel compelled to point out that it’s only half-right. It’s true that high heels were originally a masculine fashion, but they weren’t originally worn by butchers - nor for any other utilitarian purpose, for that matter.
High heels were worn by men for exactly the same reason they’re worn by women today: to display one’s legs to best effect. Until quite recently, shapely, well-toned calves and thighs were regarded as an absolute prerequisite for male attractiveness. That’s why you see so many paintings of famous men framed to show off their legs - like this one of George Washington displaying his fantastic calves:
… or this one of Louis XIV of France rocking a fabulous pair of red platform heels (check out those thighs!):
… or even this one of Charles I of England showing off his high-heeled riding boots - note, again, the visual emphasis on his well-formed calves:
In summary: were high heels originally worn by men? Yes. Were they worn to keep blood off their feet? No at all - they were worn for the same reason they’re worn today: to look fabulous.
so then how did they become a solo feminine item of attire?
A variety of reasons. In France, for example, high heels fell out out of favour in the court of Napoleon due to their association with aristocratic decadence, while in England, the more conservative fashions of the Victorian era regarded it as indecent for a man to openly display his calves.
But then, fashions come and go. The real question is why heels never came back into fashion for men - and that can be laid squarely at the feet of institutionalised homophobia. Essentially, heels for men were never revived because, by the early 20th Century, sexually provocative attire for men had come to be associated with homosexuality; the resulting moral panic ushered in an era of drab, blocky, fully concealing menswear in which a well-turned calf simply had no place - a setback from which men’s fashion has yet to fully recover.
FASHION HISTORY IS HUMAN HISTORY OK
Thank you, history side of tumblr. That “stay out of blood” thing has been driving me mad.
Sorry to bother you.
Once again… I can not with this scene.
One of the more deliberate moments where the watcher witnesses the depth of Sherlock’s pining. Sherlock is referring to John’d romanticism in relation to his blog.. which, let’s be clear, is a blog revolving around Sherlock. John isn’t romanticizing crime, or murder, or the generality of cases… he’s romanticizing Sherlock, his mind, his acuity, their time together, who Sherlock is specifically as a man and John responds to Sherlock’s identity by writing about it with great depth and affection.
Up until now Sherlock has been the primary recipient of John’s romantic attentions. Not outright physical romance, but something with perhaps even far greater intimacy. John accounting Sherlock with beautiful sincerity, and genuine respect, his words making Sherlock into something desirable. (Which in turn, Sherlock returns that same level of romanticism in his best man’s speech.)
Sherlock was probably content just having that from John. Having love expressed through the safe medium of John’s blog. Sherlock’s small hesitation and and averting his eyes so he’s not looking right at John, pursing his lips. His tone and expression is a cocktail mix of regret, guilt over having these feelings in the middle of this event, and internalized longing.
Holy guacamole! I clicked on a link in this post and oh my giddy aunt, it turned out to be the motherlode of behind the scenes photos from Dominion, most of which I’ve never seen before!!
