Share a Coke with Sherlock
“Share a coke with Sherlock” is some pretty unfortunate phrasing given what we know about the guy’s drug habits.
So did he.
So I have been talking to this guy I really like for about a month now, and I was at work one day, and he surprises me, holding my favourite Starbucks drink. I had lent him the book Looking For Alaska, because he said he never really enjoyed reading, and I told him this book would change that. So he told me he was done with it, and he took me home from work. We get in front of my house and he’s like “I want another book!” So I told him I’d run inside and get him Paper Towns.
As I was getting out he grabs me by my hand and says, “Wait! there’s this quote I wanted to show you on page… 123, I think. I like it a lot and I’m surprised you didn’t highlight it!”
And so I turn to the page, and there is this post it note pointing to that sentence.
I was asked out via a John Green book.
You hold onto that boy and never let him go.
When’s the wedding?
JOHN GREEN NEEDS TO SEE THIS
MARRY THAT BOY.
MAKE JOHN GREEN FIND THE THING

Going to run an experiment. This post will have 0 tags. I want to see how many people it can reach just through the dash alone. Reblog when you see please :)
|Doctor Who:||I would like to call this meeting to-|
|Lord of the Rings:||Why are you in charge? I mean, your show is the oldest, but I was around a decade before you, and Sherlock Holmes has been around since the 1880's. If we're going off fandom age, Doctor, Sherlock should be in charge.|
|Doctor Who:||You're usually the rational one, but have you gone mad? Because of BBC, Sherlock is, well, not like he used to be.|
|Sherlock:||*sitting in the corner rocking back and forth* 18 months, 18 months, 18 months, 18 months, 18 months, 18 months-|
|Harry Potter:||We know Sherlock, we know. It's been almost 2 years for us too, except we've finished, You have somehing left at least. We don't.|
|Doctor Who:||If you don't mind, we have an issue we need to discuss-|
|Supernatural:||If you're all quite done being English, the Doctor has something to say!|
|Avengers:||Calm down SPN, it isn't the end of the World he's announcing. But if it is, I know some great heroes that can help you out.|
|Hetalia:||America's the hero! He'll save you!|
|Black Butler:||Promise a demon your soul and you won't need heroes, he'll save you.|
|Supernatural:||Did somebody say demon?! *salt at the ready*|
|Doctor Who:||There's something really important I need to tell you!|
|Sherlock:||18 months, 18 months, 18 months, 18 months, 18 months-|
|Supernatural:||Is he possessed? I mean, my show had it's season finale recently and I'm not like that!|
|Sherlock:||*jumps on the table* Your eye is twitching, a sign of nerves, and you looked up into the upper left corner of your eye before saying that, only for a second, but it's enough to prove you're lying. You have been in the state or hysetria that I'm currently in, you're just good at hiding your emotions!|
|Lord of the Rings:||He's doing it again. Sherlock, that's enough deducting for now. Last time, you found out that Homestuck and Hetalia have a 'mutual respect' thing going on.|
|Homestuck:||People hate on our fandoms, we stick together. We never made it not obvious.|
|Hetalia:||We're moirails, where have you guys been? (pases Homestuck some pasta)|
|Doctor Who:||IF WE ARE ALL QUITE DONE! *cough* Are we just going to ignore him in the seat near the end of the table?|
|*everyone looks to said seat*|
|Hannibal:||Hello, my name is Hannibal. My show is new. I brought food if anybody would like some? I made it myself.|
hello yes, 911 send me an aMBULANCE
I’m literally in tears right now. This would be so perfect and heartbreaking.
#The best part is that it’s not just a salute to the canon #It makes fun of what the collective canon has done with the detective image #Because Sherlock Holmes in the ACD canon doesn’t have that perpetual deerstalker #So it pays tribute to the image while also pointing out that it’s a little bit silly #But at the same time respecting it and having fun with it #THAT is how you adapt an decades of literary tradition and canonical development into something new
