Red Scharlach Points At Interesting Things

Not for the first time, my brain woke me up in the middle of the night and this time it whispered “What lessons would they teach at the Sherlock School of Dance?” It then refused to let me go back to sleep until I’d written this silly list. So are you prepared to burn… the dancefloor?

So Benedict is Tigger but Sherlock is Pooh? Wow, he really does have furry mammal acting down to a fine art…

chamilet said: Oh, please, please. please could you add Esther? And maybe Esther + Jack? I love all of the Miracle Day cast, but especially her.

No problem, I can add Esther from Miracle Day! Here she is, and a sticker version is available here.

In case any other readers missed my mini-Torchwood post, my offer to add other characters to the set is still open, so feel free to let me know if there’s someone you’d particularly like to buy…

the real question is how the fuck did Ben jump so high??!!?!

His top is made out of rubber, his bottom is made out of springs. Basically, he’s bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, pouncy fun, fun, fun, fun, fun.

According to bbcone, Doctor Who leeks are being maliciously posted all over Tumblr. While they are dealing with this situation, I thought I’d show viewers what to watch out for. Stay safe out there, veg-lovers…

Yes, with a little time and effort, you should be able to train your moustache to sit, roll over, fetch your newspaper and do minor household chores. Hopefully it will also wriggle off your face and jump straight into the bin when your flatmate decides that you don’t need it anymore…

…sorry, John

Jonathan Greeting David After David Killed Goliath (mid-18th century) by Gottfried Bernhard Göz
This week’s Mighty Moment In Slash History is devoted to the greatest of biblical slash pairings: David and Jonathan. I won’t go into how canon it is, but the short answer is: very. 
As we know, David getting his kit off has long been a classic subject for paintings and statues, but the theme in this case is usually his slaying of Goliath. When artists bother to portray David and Jonathan together, they disappointingly ignore the bit where Jonathan strips off for David and choose instead to focus on man-hugs with a side of decapitation. The severed head of Goliath often looks pretty cheesed off by this turn of events, as I suppose you might if your disembodied noggin was reduced to the role of gooseberry.
If all we get to see is a hug, however, this depiction is surely one of the cutest ever. See how blissful they both look. You can almost hear Jonathan saying: “Oh darling, the decapitated head of a Philistine! How did you know? You always give me the sweetest prezzies! And I didn’t get you anything!" Then David explains how Jonathan can make it up to him later, possibly by wearing David’s slingshot as a thong and dancing around the living room to Israelites by Desmond Dekker. Meanwhile, Goliath’s skull lies forgotten on the coffee table and heaves a deep sigh of resignation…
