amorilinguae asked: You should do more of these.

I should, but I just don’t have the motivation. Those entries took HOURS to make, y’all. I can totally answer questions, though! That doesn’t take much time.

old-yodalicious asked: Where did the Anderson/Dinosaur mash up come from? And what about Sherlock being drawn as a hammerhead shark? I understand the shark comparison with Michael Fassbender but Sherlock? I'm stumped.

Anderson’s dinosaur fetish came around from a prompt on the kink meme saying that Anderson got off on dinosaurs. There’s more info about it (plus a link) on Anderson’s Fanlore page.

Sherlock as a hammerhead shark came about because
1. the “handsome shark” thing from Misfits started making people think of handsome-but-weird-looking dudes as sharks and
2. Sherlock’s eyes/head/face/etc. is kind of wonky like a hammerhead shark is wonky.

Anonymous asked: Don't know if this is still run, but if it is, where did "Jawn" come from?

It is, if by “still run” you mean “staring woefully at Tumblr and then going off to watch Youtube videos for five hours.”

:D

To answer your question: I think it comes from a “Sherlock on drugs” meme? (Coming off of the “Roes loves drugs” meme from Doctor Who, maybe?) Which means his speech gets all fucked up, which means he pronounces “John” like “Jawn.” There’s a subset of that meme where John’s on drugs, too. You may have seen a few macros of that floating around.

ironmanismyspiritanimal asked: I think that Mycroft Poppins should be included in this. :)
Here's a link: http://mycroftpoppins.livejournal.com/

DEFINITELY YES

Mycroft Popping will most likely be the next entry now. 8U Yes.

novacorps asked: THIS IS AMAZING! I'm compiling a list of resources for general sherlock fandomy stuff with things like how to track LJ comments on the meme without a paid account among other things. And yes! I will DEFINITELY be adding this and send a link your way once finished if you're interested. <3

That would be awesooooooome! I’ll link to your list too, if you want. :D

Also, sorry if this has been sitting in the ask for a while— I haven’t been getting alerts! :(

Wow!

Only one day in existence and already 23 followers! :D How amazing~ thanks everyone!

Now, the next entry I’m going to write is, I think, the “Martin Freeman is made out of kittens” one. But I’m finding it pretty impossible to track down where or when the actual MF = KITTEN!! thing started. I think it was maybe Livejournal? Back near the beginning of the Sherlock fandom? But I’m not sure. Which makes the whole originator/first instance part of the entry pretty lame.

SO if anyone out there maybe knows where/when they first heard this kitten thing and can tell me some sort of WHATEVER about their experience, that would be awesome. Also if you know of any major Martin Freekitten events. I’ve got robbicide’s comic and the Wikipedia entry tampering as two recent ones— what else happened?

New meme alert: Martin = God

AND IT WAS GOOD

New meme alert! Maybe. This might just be put under the Freeman’s Rage category instead. Anyway, it’s fun.

Other possible names: Our God Martin, Martin Godman, His Jaminess, O Holy Jam, Jamgodrage, Angry God of Kittens

robbicide’s come up with “O Holy Martin”; that’s a really good one. O HOLY MARTIN ♥

anarmydoctor asked: Hi! Well, first of all, your blog is awesome and it's an honour to be in your dictionary and right now i'm just like hsbdajhdbajhsabdjashj i can't express my feelings properly... About the jam/little croissant thing, i just wanted to add that i think all the thing started with this post and that brilliant, perfect tag:
http://anarmydoctor.tumblr.com/post/3547819246/disinfectant

Again, you are amazing! And thanks from the bottom of my jam!! ;D

Thank you! It’s always great when someone remembers when something maybe-definitely started; generally everything’s just a massive Katamari ball of fandom insanity and trying to track down when a thing got added to that ball is tough. Although I’m insane and am trying to do just that. FER THE CHILDRUNS~

ANYWAY. Updating the post now! :D

Hipster Freeman

You know what a hipster is. You know what a Martin Freeman is. This is a hipster Martin Freeman:
image
If you DON’T know what a hipster is you need to read more internet. If you don’t know what a Martin Freeman is you need to put your head back under that rock you’ve been living under for the last year.

Originator: Martin Motherfucking Freeman
First instance: Whenever the above picture exploded onto the wider Sherlock fandom part of the inter internet (Feb. 2011, maybe?). He’s been a hipster for longer than that (and the picture is from Sept. 2010 I think) but we didn’t notice at first because of all the cableknit sweaters.

Branched off into: Martin Freeman vs Matt Smith epic hipster showdown
Matt Smith is also a hipster. Proof:
image
(See also Fuck Yeah Hipster Doctor)

We already associate Sherlock and Doctor Who because of The Moffat, so it’s natural to mesh the two together into one glorious ball of fucking hipsterdom. If you don’t think this is a natural thing to do you need to spend more time on Tumblr.

Originator: Matt “The Giraffe” Smith and his fabulous hipster outfits (also whoever drew/wrote about the first actual battle thing, of course. If it’s you, please tell me!)
First instance: Shortly after the Hipster Freeman phenomenom (Feb. 2011?).

Example:
imagegeothebio (Mar. 28, 2011)

* Notice how we never crossover Sherlock/DW with Moffats OTHER shows, even though it could totally work— with Jekyll especially. Deliberately preying on our slash fangirl mentalities, that Moffat.

Note: I feel like there’s another aspect to the Hipster Freeman meme— something with Benny C.? But I can’t actually remember if that’s a thing or not. Possibly it’s related to scarves/ties/something? Someone let me know, please. (I think it’s scarves.)

Updates:
4/1/11 6:25pm: Whoops, typos. Also, like all the other entries— if you know something I don’t know (names/dates/whatever), please do let me know that thing! It makes the dictionary better and thus ALL OF FANDOM or something. Also this entry is probably the funniest I will get. Sorreh~
