Sherlockians – In a Nutshell

Today, I came across this image of our beloved detective, and the first thing that came to my mind was “This right here…is literally an image that describes the Sherlock fandom.”

Do you not agree though, Sherlockians?

Let’s break it down.

  1. Overtired eyes, from excessive drug usage late-night binge-watching and full-season-in-one-sitting marathons. Other potential causes: excessive Tumblr browsing.
  2. Messy hair, because who has time to shower when rewatching all previous episodes?
  3. Hands covering face in what is either shock, anger, sadness, terror, or or perhaps some strange attempt to resuscitate oneself due to constant holding of breath while watching a season finale.
  4. Overall, a generally tired and stressed out appearance.

If that doesn’t describe the Sherlock fandom, at least at this point in time–what with our controversial ending to Season 4, and an unknown or perhaps infinite wait time for Season 5–I don’t know what does.
