I need a distraction...  
... because RL sucks, and not in a positive, life-affirming way. So you know what? Behind the scenes pictures from Sherlock are exactly what I need today. Besides, I've been tempted to post at least a couple of these pics for *days* and I'm tired of resisting. All of these courtesy of PBS-Masterpiece: here.

The first one is, supposedly, a BTS pic but really can you actually tell me this is NOT a missing scene from the stag night in "The Sign of Three"?

bts stag night
...and then they kissed *g*

The Holmes' Family!!!!!! Also known as the Cumberbatch family with a Gatiss on the right *g*

Holmes Family
Hopefully we'll see more of them in future. Oh and how much did I love reading Benedict saying that the way Sherlock behaves with his parents - the rushing them out of the door when he has guests - is actually the way he himself behaves with them? Too much.

This next one is a favourite and I don't even know why:

TEH bts
Lol at Martin being short enough to look at the screen from the bottom *g*

The Ladies! ♥

Amanda-Louise BTS
Hopefully they'll both stick around for a looooong time *nods*

And now.... for the eye candy part of the show....

SH bts
They used this one in a magazine, too, and I swear I faint everytime I see it... *faints*

Ben bts
....no words....

"Yes, I do." That's about all I can think of...

This one doesn't really need any kind of comment...

Yup, just what I needed.

It's nice that your obsessions offer us with pretty pictures to look at. Not having the best day either so these cheered me up nicely. Will now return to lie on the sofa and under a blanket.

Glad the pics were able to cheer you up, hon! Sorry to hear you're feeling poorly though :(

karikari77 on January 22nd, 2014 08:09 pm (UTC)
*hugs* Glad the pictures provided a bit of distraction for you. They are exceptionally pretty, aren't they. And the first one, bless them for providing such a great bts bit. :D

*hugs back*

You know what else helped a lot? Accepting an award wearing red shorts! I love him. I don't think I could love him more if I tried!! LOL! Also, yay for Benedict finally getting some recognition ;)
kari: smilekari77 on January 22nd, 2014 09:43 pm (UTC)
Oh, gosh, I'm so glad you got to see that! *hugs* Even after I tried to talk you out of watching. I mean, who knew that he could actually win awards after all!!!
I just ... he was so perfect. lol I like to think that the camera thing was also a hint to what Cate Blanchet remarked at the SAG awards, about the camera scanning the women from bottom to top, but that might be me interpreting too much into it.

Anyway, it was funny as hell. Too bad it wasn't the birds shorts though ... lol

Actually I wasn't able to stream it in the end 'cause my computer wanted none of it so I watched a movie. And then I checked online and the very first thing I found was a YT video of Ben's acceptance speech! I've replayed it a few times... *g* So proud!!!! Look, our boy is growing up! He even wins awards now!

Loved Cate Blanchet's comment, btw. It would be great if the red shorts had something to do with that too. I am giggling at Tumblr since they have this weird thing with Mondays and red panties over there so now people are in heaven for it...lol!
karikari77 on January 22nd, 2014 09:55 pm (UTC)
You haven't missed anything if you haven't watched it. Benedict's speech was the best bit. I just ... at the moment I couldn't love him more. And I'm so happy that he got that award. Now for that BAFTA ...

Heh, yeah, saw the red pants comments. True sign that we are on hiatus again ... lol
aschicca: SH_Molly fangirlingaschicca on January 22nd, 2014 09:58 pm (UTC)
I don't think it's possible to love him more but I'm certain I'll try in the future *g* And yes to that BAFTA... assuming Sherlock's eligible for that this year. Read somewhere that it might be due to the fact that they screened TEH in 2013 so... *crosses fingers*

Seriously though, everyone involved in Sherlock has won a BAFTA: Martin, Andrew, Moffat, the show itself! Ben's the only one left! I can't even believe it...
karikari77 on January 22nd, 2014 10:06 pm (UTC)
Yeah, it's not like he's playing the title character, or anything ...

It would be a travesty if the show or Benedict wasn't even nominated, but on the other hand the nomination for 2014 closed on the 6th of December ... What a silly deadline.

Here I am. Sorry I'm late but I spent the whole day with my sister and we even had an afternoon of shopping... I'm dead on my feet atm but I needed the distraction. We both did :)

Anyway, if Sherlock and Ben are eligible I think it would be an absolute shame not to give him that award!
karikari77 on January 23rd, 2014 07:43 pm (UTC)
*hugs* So good to hear that you had a nice shopping spree. Definitely well deserved.
Did you find any nice treats?
aschicca: SH_I heard youaschicca on January 23rd, 2014 07:56 pm (UTC)
I did! I bought a nice pair of sweatpants, and a set of 6 glasses with a bulldog on them :) Oh and my sister and I also bought an adorable onesie for one of our friends who's pregnant. So cute shopping for babies.

*hugs back*
karikari77 on January 23rd, 2014 08:00 pm (UTC)
Aw, those sound like great finds. :)
kari: snortskari77 on January 23rd, 2014 07:47 pm (UTC)
I just read 'edible' ... *facepalm*

Yeah well, he IS edible ;P

I've added dialogue to the second to last photo...

"I Lili take you Benedict..."

I'm sure bigamy is legal somewhere...
aschicca: SH_Benedict's eyesaschicca on January 23rd, 2014 07:30 pm (UTC)
Same dialogue I added! I guess we should start looking into poligamy, let alone bigamy! Lol

I don't mind sharing honest.

Love the pics!

Cumberbatch is too damn sexy for words. XD

I hope RL because less sucky soon. You deserve it.
aschicca: SH_Sherlock close up TEHaschicca on January 23rd, 2014 07:32 pm (UTC)
He's so sexy! And an adorable dork on top of it. What's not to love?

Thank you hon, but my RL is not about to get any less sucky very soon. I shouldn't even be surprised. Last year ended on a sucky note, it was only fair of this one to begin pretty much the same way. I want to try and keep this journal drama free, though, 'cause I need a happy place...

nightrider101: SPN Sam Dean Unicornsnightrider101 on January 23rd, 2014 10:29 pm (UTC)
I'm sorry to hear that. I do understand about needing a happy place. Those can be few and far between when things are rough.

If you ever need to vent away from LJ, hopefully you still have my email or you can always PM me.

Lynspike7451 on January 23rd, 2014 01:30 pm (UTC)
What a fabulous post.

Sorry to hear RL sucks and I hope these pics did cheer you up.

aschicca: QaF_B-J nose kissaschicca on January 23rd, 2014 07:33 pm (UTC)
Thanks, hon :) The pics and the day I spent to day with my sister helped a bit *nods*
Lynspike7451 on January 24th, 2014 12:38 pm (UTC)
I'm glad. :D
