Congratulations on being perfect, sir...  
Just when you thought Tom Hiddleston couldn't get more geeky or lovely:

I love how he attempted to sing this with some level of seductiveness before letting it default to geekiness.

I feel like this sums up Tom Hiddleston very nicely. Seductive geek.

I quite like that he couldn't sing a song without apologizing. *drink!*

It's things like this that makes me think about various vignettes for our animal tea party.

Obviously there are regular karaoke nights. Now we have proof that all of our regular attendants can carry a tune well-enough.

And meerkat!Hiddleston and faun!Whishaw apologize to each other every five seconds, while otter!Batch quietly takes care of things in the background.

Hiddleston: *reaches for the teapot* Oh, I'm sorry, you wanted that first.
Whishaw: No, it's fine, you should have it, you're the guest.
HIddleston: No, no, you're the host, you should have the right to the first cup.
Cumberbatch: *quietly pours tea for both of them and himself*

And dancing. Not sure if BC can dance but I'm guessing his would be an enthusiastically geeky dance, while TH would be more seductive geeky and BW would just be flaily.

I basically saw this exact thing in my head only involving the last tea biscuit. TH and BW would be busily apologizing and trying to give the other the last biscuit while BC either divides the biscuit or pops out to buy some more.

I think there is a video of drunk!Batch dancing to thriller out there, but I have never looked because it was stolen from Olivia Poulet's Facebook page. From a few brief moments I've seen of him in various behind the scenes type things, he can move quite well. Not as good as HIddleston, though.

I feel like Cumberbatch is very much the big brother of the group, looking after the other two who are too happy or naïve to take care of themselves. Where as he has Seen things, and Knows.

Being an only child I think BC would gravitate toward being like an elder brother only child type. Someone who takes his duties seriously while the sibling'd TH and BW are all blissfully floating through things.

I've been in a weird down mood all day so I randomly decided to rewatch "Sign of Three." I never get sick of drunk!Sherlock trying to deduce.

Yes, Tom Hiddleston especially seems well-loved by his sisters. Which is adorable. I like to think he's so sweet because his sisters make sure he behaves himself. The Hiddleston family in general are adorable, possibly even more so than the Carlton-Ventham-Cumberbatch family.


I randomly found out that Benedict has an older half-sister. I literally had never heard about her until he randomly mentioned it, and I was like, 'wait, we've known each other this long and you've never mentioned this!'. Just like John finding out about Trevelyan. :p

I'm guessing they aren't close, as he usually refers to himself as an only child. It was only in reference to his mother's naming choices that I found out Mrs Ventham had another child.

Oh, I'm sorry that you feel sad!

"Sign of Three" is the best thing ever, honestly. It's all I've ever wanted from a Sherlock episode and so much more. It's all my fanfiction come to life!

I still think I need my Trio brothers getting drunk together at some point. Or at least having a couple of them drunk while the other tries to look after them.

I'm writing Molly and Alec on their honeymoon, so you will hopefully have some fluff to read in the next little bit, if you'd like. Um...what else happy do I have? Erm, there's my emergency supply of Tom Hiddleston smiling...

Wait, what? I immediately googled this after reading about it here. I'm not sure why I'm so surprised. It was like I was so dead certain BC was an only child that my reality decided it was impossible that he have a half sibling. Weird. Anyway, yes, now the 3rd Holmes brother being largely unknown seems less bizarre.

This was one of the rare times where fanfic come to life ended in wonderful things rather than embarrassing things.

Oh, I'm sorry that you feel sad!

I think I'm just stressed out about school-related things and it's paralyzed me from doing anything which in turn only ups my anxiety. Vicious cycles...

Thanks for all the items in your happy folder! I shall stare at these and perhaps watch some more clips from "Was it Something I Said?" I'd like to believe Richard Ayoade is my spirit animal but I probably only take in his social uneasiness and mash it with Jack Dee's cynicism.

Yep, this was my exact reaction. Also, I only just recently learned that Wanda Ventham had been married before, so I hadn't yet considered she might have had children from that relationship.

I also only recently learned that Tom Hiddleston's dad is proper Scottish, too. I feel like a bad fangirl.

I understand this. It's not how I react to stress, but Ama gets really paralyzed when school gets tough for her, so I know how sort of stuck you can get. I highly recommend doing happy things and being kind to yourself. Epecially since its almost your birthday! Abby Watson's too, actually. Next year, when she'll be born, according to my not-at-all obsessive timeline.

I think I'm combination of Jon Richardson's OCD and general distain for modernity with a generous helping of Adam's optimism and love of the weirdness of humanity.

What, really? Jeez, you think you know a person...

Thanks for the e-gift for my birthday! And thanks for the suggestions to be in a fluffier state of mind. Now that I've done a meme (always a nice relaxer) and stared at some pics of otters, I'm better.

That should have been 'Adam Hills's', btw. Too late to edit...

What, really? Jeez, you think you know a person...

He does a really dead on accent in the Nerdist Podcast he did, and mentions that his dad is Scottish, and his Granddad is so Scottish he couldn't really understand him when he rang on the phone. It amused me because Alec's dad was Scottish for a bit in my head, before he wasn't anymore.

It should have been sent tomorrow, but LJ works from a different timezone and thought it was tomorrow already.

Oooh, meme! I did Cumberbatch for that one awhile ago, but never posted it I don't think. And otters make everything better. Especially ones who come to tea.

I don't think you ever posted it. But coincidentally, I did him this go around.

his Granddad is so Scottish he couldn't really understand him when he rang on the phone.

Heehee! I imagine TH apologized multiple times during the phone call for not being able to understand.

I seem to remember thinking at the time 'no, I can't post about Benedict again, it's getting creepy'. As you can see, I have no such qualms about Tom. :p

They start talking about it around 16:30 here.

This does not surprise me at all but TH is so damn articulate. It's extra impressive to me because he's articulate without sounding pretentious. He's so affable and his economy of words is just about perfect.

I was going to do Hiddleston this go around but I realized I haven't seen that much of his work.

I literally put him on in the background because I love to hear him talk. He's so well-spoken, and so joyful, and so geeky and passionate, I just feel better when I'm done. Even when people try to start on a negative topic with him, he turns it right around. He's so at ease with himself, and ironically unapologetic about it. His Nerd HQ is really great, and he's done a lot of long interviews where he really gets a chance to be thorough in his answers. /embarrassing gush

I was going to do Hiddleston this go around but I realized I haven't seen that much of his work.

I was just thinking on doing this meme for him and trying to remember what I've seen him in. Thor and the Avengers, Midnight in Paris, Deep Blue Sea, Cranford, Miss Austen Regrets, one episode of Wallander, and The Pirate Fairy. But his body of work isn't as extensive as Benedict's; he's a bit younger and seemed to stay on the stage for longer before he went into films and stuff.

I remember when I first heard him being interviewed after Thor first opened and I was pleasantly surprised by how well-spoken he was and lacked any affectation which is so rare. When I saw he went to Cambridge and got a double first, I was not at all surprised. In fact, the world made more sense.

Yeah, unaffected is totally it. If he's not genuine, he's fucking good at faking it. Mr and Mrs Hiddleston raised a very nice boy.

Randomly, listening to him talk about his passions and what he used to do as a kid, with using different voices and recording his own radio show and stuff, made me realize I wasn't and am not as weird as I thought I was. I've been noticing that lately when I listen to interviews with writers and actors. All my life I've thought I was completely alone in my weirdness, and it turns out that I was just isolated in it. It's been quite comforting to find out that being geeky about Shakespeare and history, and really liking foreign languages, and singing and dancing all the time, aren't as weird as I thought. Or at least stand me in good company.

If he's faking on this level then he'd have to be a sociopath because that would be some scary-levels of convincing.

As much as people might bitch about the Internet, I do think creating a sense of connectedness is something the Internet has helped where you realize there are others out there with your sensibilities. Like writing fanfic for instance. I thought I was the only soul who did this when I was younger and then realized fanfic made up 50% of the Internet.

Yep. Turns out that making up roles in movies for yourself to play is actually an established art form. Who knew?
