The power of words #19

The Doctor and Amy, The Power of Three

“This is one corner of one country, in one continent, on one planet that’s a corner of a galaxy that’s a corner of a universe that is forever growing and shrinking and creating and destroying, and never remaining the same for a single millisecond. And there is so much, so much to see… because it goes so fast. I’m not running away from things, I’m running to them. Before they flare and fade forever.”

How do people ever get bored? How did boredom even get invented?

Young & Old Amy

“You know when sometimes you meet someone so beautiful and then you actually talk to them and five minutes later they’re as dull as a brick? Then there’s other people: When you meet them you think “not bad. They’re okay.” Then you get to know them, and their face just sort of becomes them – like their personality’s written all over it… Rory’s the most beautiful man I’ve ever met.”

"One small step..."

“Ah, the moon! Look at it! Of course you lot did a lot more than look, didn’t you? Big silvery thing in the sky, you couldn’t resist it. Quite right.”

So I’ve been away for a while. In fact, I’ve been away five months. During that time I found another show that, alongside Doctor Who and Sherlock,  is now my favourite show ever. It also occasionally features it’s own spoof of everybody’s favourite time-travelling TV drama… Hopefully, I’m going to be writing about this show soon.

Enjoy! (And please check out Community for yourself!)

The Sherlock Drinking Game

21 Jul

It’s the Sherlock drinking game! Created by me (GravityShmavity) and my friends. (Best played with whiskey/Coke, vodka/Coke or just beer.)

The six main rules are as follows:

  1. Drink when Sherlock’s name is spoken. (Damn you Mycroft.)
  2. Drink when John Watson’s name is spoken. (Damn you Mycroft!)
  3. Drink when Martin Freeman does his look-up-slightly-to-the-right-or-left-to-show-frustration-at-Sherlock look. (This look. Which happens a lot.)
  4. Drink whenever Sherlock makes a deduction. (We define this as anything that warrants one of the show’s signature “deduction sequences”.)
  5. Down your drink when Sherlock and John get into a cab.
  6. Down your drink whenever somebody dies or a dead body appears on screen (except in the beginning scenes in A Study in Pink, where all the first deaths count as the same).

The following rules can be selectively added (not necessarily all at once!), for the more serious contenders:

  • One finger when Mycroft’s name is spoken.
  • One finger whenever Mrs. Hudson knocks on the flat door, says “poop poop” or calls Sherlock and John “boys”.
  • One finger whenever Sherlock places the tips of all his fingers together in a thinking pose.
  • One finger whenever Sgt. Donovan calls Sherlock ”freak”.
  • One finger whenever Sherlock says something to Anderson.
  • One finger whenever John pulls out his gun.
  • Down your drink whenever Moriarty shouts.

Combine a good drink and some enthusiastic partners and this game will make you feel like poor Sherlock after his encounter with Irene Adler… Chin chin!
