You already know your answer, don’t you?
I got Jay, surprising absolutely no one. Didn’t even try to skew the results! Although on this one I don’t see how you really could.ouh, i got gary… this is really surprising! o.O
For awhile it seemed like everyone else was getting Gary (which was clearly a setup by Gary himself), but now my Gary stan friends are getting other people. I’m like the only one who seemed to get their fave the first try.
I got Jason, oddly! And I wasn’t trying to get him either! Apparently Lion King and Saved By The Bell are our jams
Russia just invaded Ukraine
WHY IS NO ONE TALKING ABOUT THIS?!
Wait, for real?! Why hasn’t anybody said something about this!
GOD. DAMN. IT. RUSSIA.
SIGNAL BOOST THIS IS HORRIBLE
THIS. IS. HORRIBLE
Signal boosting the crap out of this.
From what I know, the reason Ukraine are having so many economic and political problems was that they WERE going to join the EU zone, but their President decided instead to join Russia’s own version of the EU (The Eurasian Union) - against the will of the people, hence the uprisings and the takeover.
And now Russia are invading Ukraine because they have played such a huge role in the political turmoil there.
This shit is going to escalate very very quickly, but sadly I really don’t think there’s much that can be done. Any UN decree or action can be veto’ed by Russia as they’re a very powerful council member, and NATO are going to struggle given that Ukraine is not a member of NATO at all.
no, no, this is my favorite kristanna moment. Kristoff recognizes that this man not only betrayed Anna’s trust and love, but also tried to kill her best friend and sister Elsa. He had full intention to whup Hans’s sorry butt. But Anna also sees this and rushes forward, makes him stay back with a single touch. And he backs down, accepts it, because he knows her strength and respects her wishes.
best disney prince hands-down.
In other words:
(ʘ‿ʘ)ノ✿ Hold my flower.✿＼(｡-_-｡) Kick his ass, baby. I got yo flower.
And you know what else I love about Kristoff?
Right at the end when he was going to kiss her?
He asked for her permission to make sure it was what she wanted.
Four for you Kristoff!
So, Elementary fandom has talked about gaslighting before, and how it is used in abusive relationships. We’ve seen Irene/Moriarty do this to Sherlock in Elementary, and the same pattern appears in the newly-aired Sherlock with Sherlock and John. This article defines how gaslighting takes several distinct forms most of which can been seen paralleled with Elementary and BBC Sherlock. (Also, if anyone with psychiatric background could weigh in on this, that’d be great.)
1-4: Compartmentalizing: Irene fakes her own death, then makes a sudden reappearance a year later, after Sherlock has moved on and formed healthy relationships with other people (Elementary).
Sherlock fakes his own death, makes a sudden reappearance two years later after John has moved on and formed healthy relationships with people (BBC)
5&6 - Denial, Blaming/Deflection, Chronic Invalidation: Sherlock deduces that Irene is working for Moriarty (or at least, not held captive by him as she stated) and thinks she’s lying to him - he gets angry. Irene placates him, saying it’s because he is “seeing things that aren’t there”. (Elementary)
John’s angry at Sherlock for not contacting him for the last two years; Sherlock doesn’t apologize and dismisses John’s anger, explaining that it was because Sherlock didn’t trust him. (BBC)
7&8 - Domination: Irene tries to make Sherlock take back his words - when he doesn’t, she replies with “You lied before! You don’t want to come with me, so you’re inventing an excuse not to!”. Then she walks out of Sherlock’s life and makes him think he’s cause of it because in her eyes, he is the just as bad as Moriarty. (Elementary)
John’s angry that Sherlock acts irresponsibly and the bomb is about to go off. Sherlock defuses the bomb in the tube train, but lets John believe that they’re both going to die. Sherlock fakes vulnerability, apologizes to John and uses the now-or-never-scenario to make John accept his apology. (BBC)
9&10 - Minimization: Irene waltzes back into Sherlock’s life, reveals her true identity, and calls Sherlock’s trauma at her death a game. “You’re a game I’ll win every time.” (Elementary)
Sherlock reveals that the bomb had an off switch, and laughs at John’s trauma and fear when he thinks he’s about to die. “Your face, your face! Totally had you!” (BBC)
The most important thing about this, though, is that Elementary portrays it as an abusive relationship and recognizes that Moriarty/Sherlock is not in any way a healthy relationship. Meanwhile BBC Sherlock does the complete opposite, which is all kinds of fucked up.
I’m going to get hate for this
Gaslighting. That, in a nutshell, is exactly what’s wrong with BBC Sherlock. At the core is what I’ve said in my own review of TEH: The two men running this show are shit-scared of actual, genuine, human emotion - it’s to be laughed off, made the target of homophobic and misogynistic humor, and leads to plot-twists that were ugly things in 1960s sitcoms when men pulled them on women as a joke.
okay so i definitely need to give elementary a go.
You guys realise that 6 is a perfect number, right?
Because 1+2+3 = 6
And 1 x 2 x 3 = 6
So they were perfect, right from the start.
MATHS AND OTPS
I keep meaning to put this in a deck… Maybe when I finally get my Jund EDH up and running!
For those who say this doesn’t need a sac outlet: Mikaus gives the Treskalion +1/+1, so once the counters are removed he’s still a 1/1 with no way to kill him. So you DO need something to sacrifice the Treskalion. To be fair I didn’t notice that till tonight while I was drinking haha
You could direct two damage to Triskelion, right? Starts as a 5/5 with this combo, 3 counters removed makes him a 2/2 and deal two damage to itself, one to an opponent?
But Viscera Seer is a good way of getting a sacrifice - either that, or Blood Bairn as a cheap alternative!
