Irene Adler → A Scandal in Belgravia

In an interesting twist, Lucy Liu has been tapped to play Watson in the American version of Sherlock Holmes, “Elementary”.
I don’t know how I feel about this (I think maybe I don’t care?), but the fact that someone, somewhere, decided, “Let’s change a character in a male-dominated story to female!”… and they decided not to gender-swap the Guile Hero/Jerkass Woobie main character? Shocker. Oh look, another ‘head’ main character remains a male!
THIS IS NOT MY SURPRISED FACE, GUYS.
 I think perhaps this post is getting a bit misconstrued as me not appreciating the gender-swapping of Watson. Please see above for a more complete explanation.
Hey, speaking of intelligent people I’d like to stomp on (or be stomped on by), fandom- and narrative- and privilege-related thoughts are a-brewin’ and there’s a big long post somewhere in the back of my head about female love interests in Guile Hero/Jerkass Woobie narratives, tentatively titled: What We Hate When We Hate Irene Adler, Subtitled: Those Damn White Males Are At It Again!
But until then, here’s some Holmes/Adler porn, because in case I haven’t declared it enough, I’ll fucking sink with this ‘ship if I have to.Source: queen-amy-of-leadworth
more commonly known now as “Irene Adler from Sherlock Hairstyle” but still a great tutorial (and blog)
OH MY GOD.
Reblogging for future cosplay use.

Some incredibly well-put together visual Holmes/Adler porn (er, not, obviously, actual porn, but it feels like to me!) for you; a warm-up for the mass viewing of A Scandal in Belgravia later.
- Oh, shh shh no, don’t get up, I’ll do the talking.
Sometimes I have the sad realization that I am pretty much the only person on the internet that ships Holmes & Adler more than Johnlock. I can’t help it. They are just a big mess of sexy intelligence and poorly suppressed anger issues, and dammit, that’s what I look for out of my fictional romances.
