buncha tweets I just made. please consider, @syfy and @CW_network
I actually think this would be a joy to watch, and I’m serious about the musical/fashion show aspect of it. And the non-continuity, just only make even numbered episodes.

Seriously I haaaate the trope of like… they’re the genius so they can get away with anything and everything and there’s no serious/lasting consequences to their actions

Haaaaaaate

Utter loathing and distaste for that trope

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.

I really love Dutch floral paintings, honestly, they’re somehow delicate and bold and full of color and oh-so-soft all at once and I’m pretty sure if it were possible to just download artistic styles and understandings into minds I’d like to just install that one because I don’t think I have the proper skill set to ever understand how to do Dutch floral paintings

I’m very bad at remembering her last name (other than that it starts with an R), but Rachel Ruysch has some of the loveliest floral paintings, her flowers just glow in the best way possible, and her colors were just so lovely

I heard from one of my art teachers today that Dutch floral paintings were a way to show world dominance as they could bring flowers from around the world back to the Netherlands to paint from, which is also why the paintings feature things in bloom together that don’t naturally blossom at the same time. Interesting tidbit, I thought, though I haven’t double-checked its veracity (well I’m pretty sure about the latter bit, just not the former, though I wouldn’t be surprised)

Kill the idea that naivety is an unforgivable flaw but cynicism is just wisdom, murder it, chop it up and serve it for dinner, I don’t care, just end this bullshit idea that it’s better to hate than to love and better to rot in miserable bitter resignation than to hope for the best.
