Anonymous asked: I have noticed many fan fics refer to John's gun as illegal. Was it mentioned anywhere in BBC canon that the gun was not registered?
Anonymous, 2-minute Sherlock survey!
Hey Sherlock fans! For my university biology class, I am researching the relationship between illegal consumption and legal purchases of the BBC television show Sherlock. I would really appreciate it if you could take 2 minutes to complete this anonymous survey! If you could pass it on to your friends, family, and followers, I’d be even more grateful. Thank you so much for your time! ...
Anonymous asked: I had read that the Vatican Cameos phrase came from a case where Holmes helps Pope Leo XIII recover a rare collection of ancient Roman cameos that has vanished en route to Queen Victoria. My guess is that when he came upon the hiding place of the treasure, he opened the vault but quickly deduced that there was a concealed trap, so he ducked.

Anonymous asked: WHAT IS SHERLOCK. I THOUGHT HE WAS JUST A DETECTIVE. HOW DO I WATCH THIS SHOW?!
Anonymous asked: I regards to the 'three years' question; I was given to understand, while in canon it was three years, in the real world the gap between “The Final Problem” (1893) and “The Adventure of the Empty House” (1903) was actually ten years. Early Sherlockians had a difficult lot. ;)
Anonymous asked: How come in most post-Riechenbach fics there's generally a period of three years before Sherlock returns? I've watched the episodes and I'm pretty sure they don't tell you the exact time, so did I miss something or is this just a happy coincidence?
Anonymous asked: I'm sorry, I just saw in one of the ask that there's been a fandom "crisis"? I must have missed it...what is there to hate in this fandom??
caporalawesome asked: That's really helpful blog you've got there ;3 I got in a bit "late" in the fandom, 'cause I live in Canada and found out about the series about a month before the release of season 2...
