I love when cats decide they love something.

That is a very patient bunny.

The cat is totally saying “you will be delicious. Were I not stuffed full of “Tender Vittles” I would devour you now.”

…and the rabbit totally knows this.

PREACH IT GURL 

TRUE FUCKING STORY

Important digression time:
Is this a female-thing? Or a “once again SaintJason is fucked up and different from the rest of humanity” thing? Because I’ve never gotten anything even close to this. And the only people who I know who have gotten this obsessed are female. So speak up fellas. Has this happened to you?

all fandoms have that one fucking overused quote that is on 99.9% of the edits

“A rich guy, a white guy and a black guy sit down at a table together. There’s a plate of 12 cookies, the rich guy grabs 11 of them and says to the white guy “watch out, that black guy’s trying to steal your cookie”.”

This scene was actually when I went from feeling more or less neutral on Joan to actively disliking her.

Because wow, that was patronizing.

I loved that scene in Elementary.

1) Firstly, because it immediately deconstructs the “hero throws and breaks something in frustration” cliche (Sherlock throwing a glass slide in HoB, anyone?) it might even be seen as a parody of that cliche.

2) Secondly, because the dynamic is different between a man and a woman than it would be between two women or two men, the visual of a man smashing something in a temper in front of a woman can be taken as threatening or borderline abusive. Joan Watson immediately shows that she is not intimidated by Holmes’ behavior.

3) Lastly? One of the running themes of Elementary is the deconstruction of Sherlock Holmes as the solitary, antisocial genius, and his becoming a member of a community. Holmes’ gifts are given their due respect, but no one in Elementary plays the game of Because Sherlock Holmes is a Bloody Genius He Can Do Whatever He Wants So There. When Sherlock goes after Moriarty (“M”), Captain Gregson suspends him. When Sherlock doesn’t want to talk about his addiction, Alfredo says “You’ve got to get over yourself.” And when Sherlock behaves like a spoiled child, Joan tells him “Use your words.”

You see Joan patronizing Sherlock. I see a member of Sherlock’s community teaching him how to behave like an adult member of that community.

Additionally, Watson’s done good work for a number of years as a sober companion, not a manchild enabler. It’s quite literally her job to deconstruct people’s shitty self-defeating habits and demonstrate that there are better ways to live your life. She’s not in the business of humoring anyone or playing along with their tantrums, she’s in the business of fixing them. And what she does works! It gets spelled out explicitely in the text of the show: Sherlock himself admits that what’s changed about him, for the better, is her. 

In this very episode it’s explicitly spelled out that Joan is right - Sherlock admits that he’s been childish, and that he’s embarrassed. The growth arc on Elementary is easily the best I’ve ever seen for Holmes and Watson. As much as I love and cherish the Granada Holmes, even in that definitive version Watson puts up with too much nonsense. Not Joan. She is the most emotionally healthy Watson ever.
