At the discretion of Reapersun, red thongs have continued to show up as part of your regularly scheduled Red Pants Monday.
Trend status achieved.
It was reapersun again! Well, a bunch of her followers technically. Some fanartists (I’m not clear on exactly which artists, but there were quite a few of them working together) decided to covertly take over Red Pants Monday by submitting a bunch of red thong fanart.
Reapersun became enthused, so everyone jumped on the bandwagon. Now the trend is to do red thongs instead.
Edit: people are claiming that it’s not the “trend” now and that it was only for the one Monday.
Let us wait for next Monday and we shall see if there are still thongs.

8-bit sherlock unlocks the red pants easter egg!
[i’m having too much fun with my pixels today]
I warned you this was going to happen.
Red Pants Blend- Honestly, you either get it or you don’t. Either way, this is one sexy blend, guaranteed to get your blood flowing. Dedicated to Reapersun who is really entirely to blame for all of this nonsense.
someday someone will ask me ‘so did you contribute anything to your fandom?’ and I will look back at this and cry.
WHAT DO I DO I DON’T EVEN DRINK TEA
CAN I ICE THIS OR PUT MILK IN IT WILL THAT WORK
Usually, I’m a fan of chubby!jawn instead of buff military John but this was fun anyways.
This was also entirely reapersun’s fault.
Red pants on the desk （？！） for reapersun.
I don’t know the rules, sorry.TVT.I just want to give you a picture.

John’s Red Pants/Red Pants Monday
The glorious individual responsible for the red pants is Reapersun (http://reapersun.tumblr.com/) who, many moons ago, responded to a request demanding: “draw more bebop!sherlocks or OR or draw a butt your choice”
Our dearest Reapersun chose butts: http://reapersun.tumblr.com/post/10473458482/butts-im-sorry-i-choose
Then continued to be sorry for having chosen butts when she had these incredible business cards printed:
She then distributed the business cards (I have one myself in fact) thus causing the red pants to make the leap from the internet to reality, and ultimately from minor amusement to full-scale meme. Other Sherlock fan artists began making red-pants tribute art, and Reapersun was so flattered that she started reblogging them, as well as doing more red red pants art herself. There is now a day dedicated to John’s red pants (Red Pants Monday).
Unrelated to the origin of this meme, it should be noted for my American brethren that “pants” are not the same in Britain as they are in America. In Britain, “pants” means “underwear” and “trousers” are what we would call pants. Thus, it is more proper to call them “red pants” not “red underwear.”
Brace yourselves for slightly kinky examples.
