I want to see how many people actually like Moffat rather than hate him
He has issues, but then again everbody’s writing has issues. He created the only DW companions I love (the Ponds) and I was about to give up on DW because I found RTD’s plots and characters boring and predictable, but then Moffat came.
Not talking about Sherlock because there is a (very high) chance that something horrible will happen, so…
people are absolutely in love with jim moriarty but hate mary morstan
I know right?? Funny!!
I don’t understand it either. They both tried to hurt Sherlock, didn’t they??
You know what people say?
They say that it’s because yes Moriarty is after Sherlock and tried to hurt him and whatnot, but he is *still* presented as an EVIL VILLAIN and not as a friend,
whereas Mary hurt Sherlock and lied to John all her life and didn’t even apologise for these things, but she is presented as a FRIEND and they want us to forgive her. And this is why they cannot like her.
I know. IT’S RIDICULOUS RIGHT?
*Sherlock saves Irene from execution*
Audience- “Yeah it’s obvious he’s in love with her.”
*Sherlock runs into and rips apart a burning bonfire with his bare hands to save John even though there were experts there who could have done it*
Audience- “Why do people say that Sherlock loves John? It’s just a friendship.”
