"more of a critique and an examination than anything that can tell the actual story properly" 

yes yes EXACTLY! Therein lies the explanation for my dislike of the play. It didn’t tell the story properly and I’ve got nothing else to work with.

jnffgbhn fngv fnggff now I’m all embarassed

I feel like I’ve disappointed my Togas

I’M SORRY TOGAS AAAAHHHH

I’M SORRY PLEASE DON’T BE MAD AT ME FOR NOT LIKING ROME WHEN I DON’T REALLY KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT

jkdfnjfn should I just go crawl up in a corner and die of TOGAS HAETS ME BECAUSE I DON’T KNOW STUFF ABOUT ROME AND SHE SAYS I’M MAKING GENERALISATIONS AND SAYING STUPID THINGS sdsnfhjgndfhjgndfjgnfgjfdn

I don’t know where I got the depravity stuff and the cruelty I don’t knoooowwwww

oh god please don’t hate me

I’ll never talk about anything I can’t give precise names and dates and blow-by-blow accounts of battles of again fbdhjnjnfgjfdngj

and I never said the Romans weren’t great engineers didn’t I say they accomplished a lot of things I thought I did because they did

have you seen Life of Brian? I’m reminded of “what have the Romans ever done for us?” right now

but yeah none of that “freedom liberty and honour” crap is anything I would have ever associated with the Romans

I know basically nothing about the Republic and more about the Empire (though it’s still not a lot I’M SORRY I’M NOT ALLOWED TO TALK ABOUT HISTORY ANY MORE) so that’s probably a lot of the disparity we’re having here

but just taking everyone over and actually being chill about it isn’t interesting! it’s more interesting when there are wild power shifts and weird things happening and wars

but oh my god Christianity

cannibalanity

FGHFBFHBFGHBGHGGBFH I’M SORRY I’M SORRY I’M SORRY I’M SORRY I’M SORRY I’M SORRY I’M SORRY I’M SORRY I’M SORRY I’M SORRY I’M SORRY

I’M STUPID AND I DON’T KNOW ANYTHING AND I DON’T LIKE ROME AND YOU PROBABLY HATE ME

/sobbing

do you still want to share a fridge and go to grad school with me or am I too stupid OH GOD I’M SORRY —

Gosh, I remember in… I must have been eleven or twelve or something, in the summer, going to this really silly art camp. I was into Harry Potter then and I remember talking to these other two girls there who were, too. I don’t even know how we got that far or what possessed me to admit I was obsessed with it but I jsut remember they were as obsessed as I was and they were reccing all these fics for me to read I was eleven or twelve and I had acquaintances pointing me towards Draco/Hermione fics I wasn’t even into shipping I was never into shipping

that would never happen now. It was a downright anomaly that I discovered that at least one old friend of mine has seen Sherlock, and she doesn’t understand fandoms at all and doesn’t want to watch things more than once

The only reason I was talking to her at all was that we used to be really good friends

I wouldn’t have talked to her otherwise because I am absolute shit at friend-making or even talking to people

everyone I know thinks I’m some extremely serious, extremely studious emo kid who doesn’t know how to smile and reads textbooks for fun

haha but you know better than that YOU KNOW SO MUCH BETTER

"So what do you do in your spare time"

A QUESTION THAT IS THE BANE OF MY EXISTENCE I tell people I draw and hang out on the internet and don’t watch TV and I get the “what planet are you from” stare

CLEARLY YOUR SCHOOL HAS ALL THE BEST PEOPLE

PARENTS

always assuming things

heteronormativity 

and cissexism

sometimes I launch into the transgender rant with my parents

they think I’m weird

but I can’t help it when my mum asks to see my drawings and I show her a picture of my one transdude character and his wife and I explain that the stuff on his chest is the stuff binding his breasts and first I get a blank stare and then I get “so he’s really a woman?”

NO FUCK YOU

Yeah, you do. You mention your male wardrobe a lot. I certainly don’t think it’s important at all: you wear what you want. If you want to be dapper, be dapper. Maybe this is just another case of PARENTS making assumptions and thinking things are weird and thinking that clothing clothing of all things it’s like the most boring stuff ever you put it on your body that’s the end of it is implicitly tied to gender because oooh ~everything is~ and also ooh ~she’s obviously lesbian because short hair~ no fuck that no that drove me nuts in TGG I mean I was like “really, Gatiss, really? You’re gay yourself and yet you bought the whole ‘gay because tight shirt’ nonsense? Please, I expected better of you.”   

I don’t know why it should be an issue or why it is an issue because guys guys it’s just clothes. Wear what you want. And no, you certainly shouldn’t cut back on it if you like mentioning it; if you consider it an important aspect of your personality then by all means talk about it ad nauseum. I was just wondering if it was a vital aspect of your personality from all that you talked about it, because it seemed awful important to you, almost verging on a gender presentation thing. However, I don’t think you should feel you need to identify as a waistcoat-wearing dapper-as-fuck girl if you don’t want to: it shouldn’t be a thing because it’s an issue; rather, it should be a thing because you, Togas the Asexual Sherlockian Latinate Australian Fridge-Gnome, are also Dapper as Fuck. Does that make any sense? It’s like how I’m proooobably a demi-to-asexual panromantic with an aesthetic preference for dudes, but I don’t really want to think about it like that so I just say “I’m me, I want a partner, I just don’t want to fuck and I don’t trust guys easily”. So I don’t think you should feel you need to talk about it unless it’s important to you — not to other people, fuck what other people think, other people are stupid and clearly wouldn’t recognise an awesome bro if one beat the shit out of them with raw bromantic power.     

I certainly don’t care. I don’t think it’s important. Wear what you want.
