reblog and make a wish!
this was removed from tumbrl due to “violating one or more of Tumblr’s Community Guidelines”, but since my wish came true the first time, I’m putting it back. :)
lets see if this works…
(cant believe im wishing on a star on tumblr)
Submission by shefferle
"he won’t accept any calls or agree to listen to information about any case no matter how urgent…"
Yeah, the Met would totally let him have some me-time like that every morning. And I can absolutely see Lestrade insisting on it - “Oh, you have urgent information on where those kids are that were snatched? Yeah, get back to me in 20 - it’s my break. They can wait.”
I sometimes wonder if half the Sherlock fandom were watching the same Lestrade I was (and have any clue what the police actually do)…
I just don’t know how anyone extrapolates from that one *tiny* two second flash of a scene into *this* *much* *wrong.*
I sincerely doubt ANY job, not just the police, would allow you to just faff about for twenty minutes at the beginning of the day. You get in, maybe get a cup of tea so that it’ll cool while you turn on your computer and get started working.
I do sometimes wonder at how many people don’t pay attention to Sherlock’s “you see but you don’t observe” thing. Things like this and things where they’re amazed people ship things that aren’t overtly shoved into your face, as if the only interaction characters have are shown on screen and NOTHING ELSE OCCURS OFFSCREEN.
Why can’t people just think? Before creating such a submission and before publishing something like this in the characters tag?
This headcanon was written and submitted out of nothing but love for DI Lestrade and his “Jesus Donovan, NOT NOW” attitude in this scene… No gray-haired Gregs were harmed in the making of this headcanon, although that much can’t be said for the fans and to that I say ….
Lighten up people !
SUR la FORME
