Actors Breaking Character To Laugh With Each Other Between Takes
"If we can’t write diversity into sci-fi, then what’s the point? You don’t create new worlds to give them all the same limits of the old ones."-
Jane Espenson (from interview with Advocate.com)\
I dunno how many which ways this needs to be said
Relevant to like 90% of sci-fi in which the story is centered on white people.(via 221bumblebee)
“pussy” is the dumbest insult ever youre literally calling someone a vagina. and if youre not calling someone a vagina, youre calling them a cat. both are fucking awesome and youre lame as hell

Floorplans that have the bed in the middle of the room always seem so weird to me. Maybe it was easier for servants to change the sheets? I’ll have to look at “The Dying Detective” again and see if it actually says Holmes’ bed is in the middle of the room…
Well…Watson WAS able to hide behind it, which he couldn’t have done if it were against the wall….
But Watson’s room was on the second store, so this plan has a major flaw.
Also, apparently Holmes’ bedroom had two doors, and/or the living room had two doors. In MAZA Holmes goes to his room through a door which opens on the living room, but his room has a second door through which he passes in order to exchange place with his bust in the living room - thus, either this second door opened on the landing, and the living room had two doors, one of which concealed by the curtain, OR Holmes’ room had two doors, both opening on the living room, and one of them concealed by a curtain.
This second explanation looks more likely, to me, as never once in the Canon Holmes leaves his room but through the living room, and a second door of a bedroom (possibly the remain of two rooms at one point united into a larger one) would have probably been concealed with drapery in order to get more space for the furniture in both the living room and Holmes’ bedroom.
As for the space behind Holmes’ headboard, there was probably a recess in the wall (possibly a former built-in wardrobe) which was less large than the bed, so, with the bed positioned in the corner, a little space remained behind its board, where the niche was.
I grew up in a very old house which had undergone a lot of reshuffle through years (and possibly centuries), and I can assure you that such occurences are not infrequent in this kind of buildings.
