I used to have a list of fandoms here, but it became too long. Suffice it to say that I have many interests. Among other things, I am also a gamer, feminist, and lucid dreamer. I do my best to be nice :)

psilentasincjelli asked: AU where Sally is in a consensual romantic and sexual relationship with both Anderson and his wife and they all think it's hilarious that Sherlock hasn't figured it out yet so they just play along with the "omg yep you CAUGHT ME" bit every time he "deduces" that Anderson has been "cheating" with Sally
if by au you mean ‘no one can convince me this isn’t what happened’ amirite

About Sally Donovan
I’ve seen several posts about Sally Donovan from the TV show Sherlock, which assert that anybody who dislikes her is probably a sexist/racist and only dislikes her because she is a WoC who dares to disagree with the great Sherlock Holmes. Well, I kind of disagree. I mean, I’ve seen some pretty misogynistic and racist stuff leveled at her before, but I do think it’s possible to have legitimate, non-bigoted grievances against the character.
Honestly, I was fine with her in series one. She was one of the good guys as far as I could tell and she had legitimate reasons to distrust Sherlock (he’s a jerk, he frequents crime scenes, and is a self-proclaimed sociopath after all). But in The Reichenbach Fall from series 2, I quickly lost pretty much all sympathy for her when she thought it would be appropriate to mock John after Sherlock was arrested. I get that she doesn’t like Sherlock, but really, why would she think it’s at all okay to mock JOHN after his best friend was just arrested? It kind of painted her in a petty, malicious light and at that point (to me at least) she crossed the line from being “no-nonsense police officer doing her job” to “really kind of a jerk.”
I don’t think she’s the worst person in the show and I can’t really say I “hate” her. But, I kind of understand when people say they dislike her and I don’t think that they’re automatically racist/sexist for saying so.
