When you meant to talk to somebody but left it too long and now it would be weird
I’m emotionally volatile right now.
I just realized that Vinette Robinson was born in 1981, making her 32, which means that she was only 28 when BBC Sherlock first aired, and considering that most shows whittle ages of an actor to their role down by a year or two (and sometimes many more), it’s safe to say that when we first meet Detective Sergeant Sally Donovan in A Study in Pink, she was about 27 or 26. And while Sergeant is very similar in ranking to a constable (from what I’ve read), she’s trained in Criminal Investigation (thus detective). She has her age, gender, and race against her but throughout the series she’s shown as being just as competent as Lestrade, who’s a rank above her.
Actually, a Sergeant is a rank above Constable, and any Constable would have to work a two year probation before even applying to sit a Sergeant’s exam - which doesn’t guarantee them the rank, even if they pass.
That moment in your childhood when you realize that Diagon Alley is just the word diagonally….
And the Mirror of Erised is just the word desire backwards.
Didn’t even realize. Does that mean Knockturn Alley is nocturnally (dark/night)?
Yes, and Grimmauld Place is a play on grim old place.
And Dumbledore is just a dumb old door
Actually Dumbledore is an old english word for bumblebee
And Albus is Latin for white
remember when we were kids and we used to all sing that demented version of the barney song where it was like “i hate you you hate me let’s go out and kill barney”
i don’t remember ever doing this. you were a fucked up kid
i hate you
you hate me
let’s go out an kill barney
with a baseball bat
and a 4x4
NO MORE PURPLE DINOSAUR
I hate you
you love me
I will kill your family
with a great big gun
and a dagger in your eye
shoot them stab them ‘till they die
