actual german compound nouns:
Staubsauger (vaccuum cleaner, literally “DUST SUCKER”)
Vorhang (curtain, literally “HANGS IN FRONT”)
Wasserkocher (kettle, literally “WATER BOILER”)
I smile every time I remember German birth control pills are called “antibabypillen”. Though in the interest of fairness, “fireplace”.
I have literally no reason to do this beyond OTP: JimxAstronomy is my favorite HC and other people like it too so it totally gives me an excuse to waste my time drawing it.
Interviewer: When did you last regift something that you were given for free?
Andrew Scott: Oh God… Ehuhm at the weekend! I swear to God! One of my friends were at The Stag premiere in Dublin and one of my friends was ehhh a cameraman and uhh I uhh embarrassed him on the red carpet and I turned the camera on him and made him do funny things. And the thing was sponsored by a Whiskey company and we were given out whiskey and I- I- I gave him the whiskey.
Interviewer: So he /knew/ it was given for free?
Andrew Scott: Oh yeah! It even said it on the bottle. On the bottle it said “Andrew, thank you for your…” [Scratched that with a sharpie!], I didn’t even bother! Dear behind the camera-guy!
I RETRACT WHAT I SAID PREVIOUSLY! ANDREW SCOTT’S A TOTAL SWEETIE AND THE CAMERA GUY (lol Brezzo) IS HIS FRIEND! YAY!
Differences in Moriarties.
Omg Andrew is flirting.
No but have you actually watched this interaction? Bizarre tongue movements aside, I’d swear he had it in for the cameraman. I don’t think this is flirting, or friendship. Mr Scott quit drama school, now he’s pretty famous, and this guy seems a little bitter, calling himself a “failed actor” while Andrew jokes about being a better cameraman. It’s not sweet, it’s really awkward to watch. EDIT: BUT THEY ARE FRIENDS PHEW! x
Anywho, the rest of the video is pretty interesting, I’m keen to see The Stag whenever it reaches Australia! I hear Andrew sings in it, whoo!

Theory // V i c k y ::
"Sorry sexy, some secrets have to stay secrets.”
meaning - “to conquer, victory”.
marks - met Mayfly Man online, unidentified description: “couldn’t tell; he had a mask on” … occupation: “maid”… ideal night out: “dungeon”… makeup: “whatever’s cheap”
Personal Headcanon: Mysterious online “Vicky” is actually Moriarty, toying with Sherlock. Her answers are just vague enough that they could be made up. No face-to-face meeting, done by instant messaging online. References to wearing a ‘mask’. Ideal night out would be a dungeon. Do not tell me Moriarty could not construct a female online identity and history.
Re-watch that scene.
Having re-watched the scene, allow me to play Moriarty’s advocate:
While the others met “The Mayfly Man” in person, Vicky met him online.
While the others can describe him physically, Vicky says he was wearing a mask.
When the others are disgusted at him using the houses of dead men as locations for his dates, Vicky shrugs, and says “Clever.”
When Sherlock’s grasping at straws, asking after make-up and perfume, Vicky’s answers are contrary to the others: “Whatever’s cheap” and “Estée Lauder”, not Chanel.
From my first view I thought Sherlock’s indignant reactions to Vicky’s, shall we say, unusual answers were a little over-the-top, huffing and frowning, seeming displeased that she continues to derail his investigation. (“Dungeon” seems to alarm him, as Jim knows it would).
Vicky’s is the only resumé we see much of and it’s got a few unusual features: Her maid duties include “lifting, pushing and pulling objects, bending and kneeling down” (so vague and bizarre it’s either lazy or a joke, possibly even an innuendo). Vicky is apparently also a “Chauffeur with own means of transport” (reminiscent of Jim’s appearance as a cabby?) and is capable of “Providing support for social media” (which Jim-from-IT did for Molly, as seen on her tie-in blog), as well as “Other services” (again, vague, possibly an innuendo).
And the way Vicky signs off is different to the others as well, “Sorry sexy, some secrets have to stay secret,” is reminiscent of the very first lines Jim says to Sherlock (while using someone else’s voice): “Hello, sexy.”
(Also, Vicky is looking for ten things in a man, managing to get out two before Sherlock stops her: “Someone who isn’t competitive with other men” and “Someone who isn’t constantly trying to define himself by his masculinity.” It could be argued that Sherlock fits these criteria and Jim is flirting with him through the persona of Vicky).
