I like how if the Homestuck fandom is suddenly deprived of content, it goes into shock within a day and kind of starts bleeding and thrashing all over the other fandoms.
While the Sherlock fandom is just lying on the pavement in a corner. It hasn’t received much new content in more than a year. Encrusted blood is everywhere and the other fandoms are kind of pissed off about it. It’s like the dead body in the room that nobody wants to talk about and tries to ignore but can’t because dead body smells gross.
Sometimes the Sherlock fandom possesses other fandoms, stumbling wildly about, gripping other fandoms by the shoulders and breathlessly murmuring about 3’s and seasons, or using this creative outlet to create crossovers like there’s no tomorrow.
Daily the Sherlock fandom will shudder and twitch, moaning about some half-insane thing or another, maybe pause to deduce a scaringly accurate fact about the another fandom and they’ll sit with baited breath, praying that the fandom doesn’t come back to life.
But they’re wrong.
The Sherlock fandom was never dead.
We’re alive, and waiting.
