hi there! you're amazing and so is your blog c: do you think we could get some pictures of benedict cumberbatch's derp faces?

Ahh, the wonders of google images. Who knows what you’ll find!

OMFG! What happened to me? Yes, I read your warning, but I thought I could handle it. Turns out, I fucking can`t! This man is just... I have no words for it! If I ever to come across eyes like his (I still manage to be realistic enough to know I`ll never meet him IRL and would not even stand a chance, if I actually did) I would immediately fall in love with this person (I usually don`t fall in love)... and you are lovely. Hope your dream of working as an actress/writer will come true... :)

See? I told you! 
Gosh, and I tell you, you will melt into those eyes in a split second. You will not have time to react or say anything. You’ll just see the colour of pure turquoise. And you never know, you may get to see those eyes in person. Life works in mysterious ways, love. Never did I ever think I was going to meet him. And, if I’l lucky, I may meet him again (perhaps on a TV set) hehe ;) Thank you very much, I hope so too. Fingers, toes, and eyes crossed!

I’m going though a hardship right now, and I was just wondering if you had any quotes, or pics or gifs of either (or both) of my two favorite Englishmen. I know it seems a lot to ask of someone you’ve known all of two dozen+ blogs, but I read your blog at least twice a day. Sometimes five or six times even.

Aww, love. I’m sorry to hear that. But chin up! These men have wonderful words of advise to give:

  • Enjoy the journey of life and not just the endgame. -Benedict
  • The further you get away from yourself, the more challenging it is. Not to be in your comfort zone is great fun. -Benedict
  • I have an appetite for the normal in my life, as well as the abnormal. -Benedict
  • Someone will always hate what I say. There’s always going to be somebody spitting blood about my wooden-faced, toffee-named, crappy acting. -Benedict
  • I’m not confident in social situations; just going up to someone in a bar and saying ‘Hi’ is going to be even more difficult because they won’t know the real me. They will just know me as a fictional person I play on the screen. -Benedict
  • It’s difficult because nothing’s preordained by plan and you can’t control it. That’s one of those joys and thrills and nerve-racking realities of being an actor. A lot has to do with luck, no matter what your talent or contribution can be. -Benedict
  • Haters never win. I just think that’s true about life, because negative energy always costs in the end. -Tom
  • Never stop. Never stop fighting. Never stop dreaming. -Tom
  • For myself, for a long time… maybe I felt inauthentic or something, I felt like my voice wasn’t worth hearing, and I think everyone’s voice is worth hearing. So if you’ve got something to say, say it from the rooftops. -Tom
  • I don’t think anyone, until their soul leaves their body, is past the point of no return. -Tom
  • I never like to make plans. It’s nice to just hang. -Tom


Hello! Here are new pics, he started doing some exercise (I think I should follow) and then came the tragedy, but it was a joke, shame on us!



Old picture, but I love that hat

everything about this is perfection

By the way, who taught you how to dance?

I’ve been left out alone like a damn criminal
I’ve been praying for help cause I can’t take it all
I’m not done,
It’s not over.
Now I’m fighting this war since the day of the fall
And I’m desperately holding on to it all
But I’m lost
I’m so damn lost

I feel you fading away…


P.S. I am the lady who sent you the note "from the 50ish southern American lady." Just for clarification, I should have phrased it "from a 50ish USA southern lady." So, I'm from the south in the USA, not South America. Sorry for the confusion. But anyway, thanks for posting my previous note, and for all the work you do in your everyday life, studies, and posting about Benedict.

I understood exactly what you meant, don’t worry about it. :) America is just so different to what I’m used to! It would be so interesting to see the USA. Isn’t Texas in the Southern regions of America? That’s somewhere I’d like to see :)
And you’re very welcome. Thank you so much <3

Note the bottom. Birth year is 1977. In this font, I can’t think of any other digit that would partially look like this, is repeated and gives credible birth year. This, for me, settles the age debate.

Interestingly (probably just a prop issue?) the Fall date is absent. I mean, John would notice something like that…

So this means that Sherlock was 33 when he and John first met. Also, that would make Mycroft about 40 at this time.

He’s approximately three years younger than John.

He was 12 when Carl Powers was murdered and he “made a fuss” to the police.

He was about 28 when he first met Lestrade.

He is now 36 years old.

Excellent!! Though, assuming they met on Jan 29th, 2011, Sherlock would be 34. From ASiB, we know John was 37 that year.

So, the age difference is, as you said, 3 years. Which puts John’s birth year at 1974. But above news is from the time after the events at pool. So, it’s possible that John’s birth date could be in 1973 (roughly) July-Dec and he would still be 37 at the time of above news.

Mycroft’s birth year could be 1969-1970. As in, he could have been born anywhere between roughly September 1969 - April 1970 to be called 7 years older. (Stretching it more causes my mind to adjust 7 years to 7.5 years, and that is not a canonical number for me!)

He met Lestrade around the age of 28, meaning he wasn’t just out of University. Actually we don’t even know whether he completed any degree. What was he doing then? Rather, what could he be doing before meeting Lestrade? There is his addiction. Did he kick it after meeting Lestrade? Before? Because 28 years is a long time, most people are well set into their jobs (Dull), and Sherlock invented his after this? Oooh… will there be some inklings to this in series 3 given that there’s going to be some family time (speculated)?


FINALLY! I have always believed Sherlock’s age was similar to Benedict’s. Great sleuthing, cosmoglaut! I salute you.


I just increasingly enjoy the quiet moments when I can be on my own with my friends and family, or with a book, having a live experience. That’s really what I crave, and I always have done. (x)
