Anonymous said: get it straight (no pun intended) - it's not john that can't keep up. in most fan fiction (and fan art, including some shown on television), ex-military john is topping sherlock. perhaps one reason cumberbatch always sounds a bit uncomfortable in interviews when he describes what he has seen or read.
…martin is that you

yo, fandom that’s not my own:
- actors do not own their characters
- but neither do you own those actors
If people write weird fic about actors and/or their characters (and I do too), they have the right to be upset, especially if it involves their image being used in sexual situations they are uncomfortable with. I would be extremely creeped out if strangers wrote porn about me, and actors are human too. (Though it’s… intriguing that Benedict apparently read enough slash to get an idea of what the common narratives were.)
At the same time, writers *also* have the right to be upset when those actors misjudge and insult or dismiss their work, because writing is often something so personal and that - for fanfic - often comes from a place of deep love and appreciation. And if you’ve invested yourself in this literary labour of love, in part because of a work or character or actor that resonated with you and whom you deeply connected with, or as your way of exploring painful personal issues through the safer medium of fiction, it would really, really hurt when someone you looked up to scoffs at it and by extension at you. And it disturbs me that there are people mocking them. Oftentimes this isn’t just about someone’s silly fantasy. Fics go deeper than that. Have some compassion.
You can defend both Benedict and his fans who were hurt by what he said. The fourth wall exists precisely to protect both sides, and bad things happen all around when it’s breached.
And, heck - what he said about Sherlock is true. He would look at you like an insignificant piece of garbage, tell you every single thing that you hate about yourself, and then flick you away like the unimportant mortal creature you are.
…now go write fic about Sherlock meeting Benedict Cumberbatch and doing exactly that to him.
(And then maybe they fuck. In space. Chained to each other. Because Sherlock, in Benedict’s words, is a lustful cockmonster and John can’t keep up.)
*prepares for the fandom's onslaught of heated debate and Cumber-bashing*
*prepares for the fandom's ironic fan art of John and Sherlock fucking in space*
