I—I just thought about how after Reichenbach, no one’ll take care of Sherlock’s Tamagotchi, and it’ll probably die.
Now I feel like I’m going to cry, this is so ludicrous. AGGRESSIVELY GOES TO WORK OUT INSTEAD.
I hope you guys are prepared for the most important homecoming of Series 3.
Many of the messages FYSS continues to get crack me the fuck up. I had to restrain myself from allowing him to reply immediately.
Omg I'm more excited about Texts updating than about series 3 coming out–Anonymous
Haha, yeah. Thank you. I hope series 3 gives Texts a good foundation to build on top of. Dear Santa, all I want for Christmas is Sherlock’s characterization to not suck.
I was in a sort of self-imposed exile while I finished that chapter of The Sigerson Letters. I have quite a few messages dating months back to answer, so bear with me, please. Mental health problems, etc. I don’t know how to socialize.
In that time, though, Texts’ second anniversary came and went. It’s still gaining followers every day for some reason. 9,400 right now. What? I don’t know what happened, but thanks all the same.
Reading the trio of flashbacks re: the night that Sherlock and John spent together before John's deployment gives a whole new spin for me on the warehouse conversation that Mycroft and John have in PINK. Because I don't doubt that Texts!Mycroft would remember exactly who this soldier is.–afrogeekgoddess
Yes, exactly. And if Sherlock had wished for Mycroft to locate—or even retrieve—"the soldier" for him back then, Mycroft would have done it. It seems like a bit of fairy tale fate that things lined up the way they did anyway.
I just wanted to say "thank you" for all the hard work and dedication you've put into texts. I loved every minute of it and every tear it caused (and there were quite a few). Thank you so much for devoting yourself so fully. You're a fantastic Sherlock, and your devotion and talent really shows.–thelovelyrhapsody
Thank you so much!
Thank you for roleplaying Sherlock in Texts!verse! I am one of those who had a breakdown after sweet/hurtful? 40 hours! As an ESL person (if it's somehow grammarly correct) and I've been forcing all my Sherlock-fangirl/boy friends to read the texts blog (and suffer with me), it's difficult to allure them due to the language barrier even though I assure them this is NOT THAT hard, so the question is: Would you please recommend a relatively fast way to introduce this brilliant Text blog? Thx! xx–eekwgermany
Sorry, I’m not that great with concise summaries. Texts from John and Sherlock is a Tumblr blog where John and Sherlock answer questions from the audience, set against a backdrop of mostly series 2 canon. It fills in the gaps between episodes with additional plot lines, and explores the characters’ histories too.
OOC: I absolutely LOVE/ADORE what you have done with this fandom and how you tied in the arcs of your own story with the ones from the series itself. I love all of the little references to the official ACD works, and pretty much everything else on these blogs. I'd love to read them after all is said and done. I am curious as to whether or not you will be posting them on AO3. (Please don't think of this as an actual ASK message for the blogs. Thanks).–Anonymous
Thank you! However, if you haven’t seen it already, Chelsea answered your question here.
Hi Seth! I just finished reading all of the post fall stuff and it hit me that it is all over. I just wanted to thank you for the journey. You both did such a wonderful job with the project.–obnoxiouscupcakes
Thank you! I’m still reeling a bit from the ending, personally.
I never said before, but I figure now would be appropriate. Thank you so much, Seth, for the trigger recovery mini-interlude. That post has helped through so much, including my own realization of rape. I would not be where I am without it. Thank you. It still means the world to me.–Anonymous
I hope you’re doing well, anon.
A friend of mine just sent me over to read texts about a week ago because she had just steamrolled through the entire thing with me, knowing I'd love it. When I mentioned being nervous about reading the fanfiction for fear that I'd get annoyed with how wrong most writers would render John and Sherlock, she sent me over here with the assurance that "this is the best one out there." And I do love it, I finished just at the final arc. It was perfect <3 thank you.–dreamerserenade
Thanks much. I know my Sherlock is controversial in many respects, but I think I’ve done something spectacular with him. And, of course, it is a privilege to play in the sandbox with Chelsea’s John. Glad you enjoyed it.
Does it ever blow your mind some people have shed 7000 tears over words you have written?–Anonymous
That sounds like fatal dehydration.
Jesus bloody Christ Seth. This final Texts post. Devastating. Edifying. And the perfect bloody end to the two-year journey you and Chel and the community has built together. If I never read another BBC!Sherlock fanfic, I think I could be happy. Thank you, and Chel, and everyone for making this a fantastic ride.–Anonymous
Thank you very much. I keep putting off answering these asks because I don’t know what to say that isn’t trite, but it really boils down to this: thank you.
So how much exactly does Sherlock remember about drunkpickup!John? He didn't remember enough to identify him, but bits of the conversation? A feeling?–Anonymous
I intentionally left it vague within Texts itself. It’s amazing what the subconscious will absorb, though. If you really want to know more about it, please refer to Letters for an unnamed soldier.
Just re-watched Reichenbach Fall after texts... and almost hyperventilated with the added context. Simply an amazing job. You and Chel have written my head-canon for me, and I am ever so grateful.–fabricofink
Thank you. My own rewatch of The Reichenbach Fall was similarly emotionally difficult.
