Josh Horowitz and Tom Hiddleston Never Disappoint  
They had a slumber party.

This may prove awanderingbard's theory that Hiddleston is always ready to dance.

Seriously, Josh says 'dance' and Tom is like 'yay!'

My favourite part among many is that the side tables are covered with photos of Cumberbatch.

It's like he asked for the dare hoping that he'd be asked to dance.

I didn't even notice that! Boy, they know their audience.

The 'Tom Hiddleston dancing' tag on tumblr is very delightful.

I have heard that Hiddleston and Cumberbatch live around the corner to each other in London. I like to think that they get to together sometimes and do their nails or something.

Have you seen TH on Chatty Man? I feel like there's fodder there for more Alec fic because it has a bit where TH imitates Kermit the Frog.

They better do it in secret or else all of Tumblr will descend upon them. I feel like their slumber parties would be a mix of incredibly posh and kid-like. Like they'd sport brocade dressing gowns over Muppet tee shirts.

I've only seen a gif of him dancing on Chatty Man. I'll have to take a look!

And get drunk and perform Shakespeare.

The lead in for how the dancing came about was basically a complete non-sequitur from the earlier part of the conversation. It may have seriously just been TH suggesting they all dance. I'm beginning to think he just really wanted to dance all the time and acting was sort of the easiest way to get to that goal.

And get drunk and perform Shakespeare.

I feel like once they got drunk enough they'd just start doing Shakespeare but by imitating other actors' voices. Like Rickman does Hamlet.

He also sings and plays guitar and piano. Maybe he just wanted to be Gene Kelly.

I'm now picturing this in their otter and meerkat forms, in front of the fire in Whishaw's cottage while he makes them tea and looks at them fondly.

I like the idea of otter!Batch and meerkat!Hiddleston doing slightly drunk Shakespeare in front of the fire while faun!Whishaw watches with some rapt attention while eating a cookie. It's a very cozy image.

Again I curse the fact that I can't draw.

If I wasn't so afraid of tumblr, I would submit it to the ethers and let someone take it on. At the moment, however, I'm in a very happy tumblr place and don't want to anger the gods.

That will not stop me from jumping on an offer for decently priced commissions, however.

I feel like we need to soak in the good Tumblr feels right now because I fear what it may become once the new Sherlock episodes air.
The Writer They Call Tayawanderingbard on November 10th, 2013 04:05 am (UTC)
Yeah, I've cut down my tumblr feed to fan artists, Sherlockology and a friend from LJ, plus a few factual things. Staying riiiight away from the fans. I don't want spoilers or set pics, I don't want moaning about failed ships, I just want happy thoughts and pretty art.

Sometimes I search through the Skyfall (which is basically 00Q in everything but name) and Tom Hiddleston or BC tags, but that's it. I tried a Once Upon a Time tag recently, and quickly turned around and fled. Nice to know it's not just Sherlockians ruining everyone's fun, though.
formerly lifeinsomniacjoonscribble on November 10th, 2013 04:10 am (UTC)
The Night Vale tag was doing so well. And then a reveal two episodes ago made some fans lose their marbles and it started to go south. This is why we can't have nice things when they're linked to Tumblr.

The calmest tag I might have right now is ironically the Hannibal tag.

I think fans have a false sense of entitlement, as though they should be able to dictate what goes on and the writers are somehow wrong for not doing what they want. I think that's the generation of people, though. We live in age of entitlement, where what we want is supposed to happen now without us having to work for it.

Part of what I think made Twilight so popular is that it is a world where there are no consequences, where you don't have to do a thing to help yourself and still end up with everything you want, even if what you want is actually, by the rules of that universe, impossible.
formerly lifeinsomniacjoonscribble on November 10th, 2013 04:25 am (UTC)
Joseph Fink who is one of the writers for Night Vale tweeted some interesting, non-offensive thoughts on this idea that sometimes fans have an extremely difficult time letting go of certain fanon because it's been with them for so long that at this point to them they can't tell the difference if it's fanon or canon. But the fact that the fanon became so real is a byproduct of the intense fan love for the media.

Part of what made Night Vale initially have a sane fanbase was that there was an extremely wide margin for all fanons to co-exist peacefully since the show never elaborated on basic facts. No one was right or wrong. But now that the margin is starting to narrow, the age of entitlement as you say is starting to show. And it was over something so ridiculously innocuous.

it is a world where there are no consequences, where you don't have to do a thing to help yourself and still end up with everything you want, even if what you want is actually, by the rules of that universe, impossible.

I've watched long running TV shows that started to turn into this where the number of real consequences for the characters became more or less obsolete and there seemed to be no rules anymore. I can't keep watching if there are no rules and literally anything can happen. Even fantasy has rules, dammit.

I think that with the invention of social media, fanfiction has a much wider audience than it used to, as well. And with Twitter, fans have direct access to their favourite writers and actors, and so may feel a kinship that isn't there, and so feel more betrayed. And fans can connect with each other and egg each other on. So, boo to social media, I guess.

It's the shipping that gets to me. Like, ship what you want, power to you. But...damn, it's just a ship. I just completely fail to understand how two fictional people not getting together can cause this much drama. It literally is unfathomable to me.

I think Merlin suffered from status quo near the end, and I'm not sure if it would have been entertaining for much longer. I think it got good because it was ending and they didn't have to be afraid of shaking things up any more. I stopped watching NCIS when the whole building exploded and none of the main characters were even hurt. I mean, come on! Give me a concussion at least.

...Okay, I have to know, what reveal is blowing fan-minds? Is it just Cecil's name, or...?
formerly lifeinsomniacjoonscribble on November 10th, 2013 04:49 am (UTC)
Yup, Cecil's name. I think it's less of fans gnashing their teeth and more a few of them just...ignoring the canon.
The Writer They Call Tayawanderingbard on November 10th, 2013 05:38 am (UTC)
I've seen Chatty Man now. Oddly, my prevailing thought is that British poppies are not as nice as Canadian poppies. And I do hate it when they show the actors porn. Though Tom handled it extremely well.

He needs to be careful with that party rock dance move, that's the second time I've seen him break something while doing it. But picking up his microphone pack and getting it on while continuing to dance is pretty awesome. I think he'd be good at clogging. Like, Irish dancing.

Also, being starstruck by Kermit the Frog. ^_^

I think the only time I enjoyed talk show people bringing up the slash and porn to actors was when Ralph Fiennes read aloud Harry Potter slash fan fic. That was hilarious.

Nothing can stop the motion. All objects just need to move out of the way. I did laugh rather a lot when the mike dropped and he was half laughing and half yelping, "Oh, the mike! The mike!" as he kept going.

Haha! Damn, I am both terrified and intrigued by this. No, I don't want to know. I have terrible second-.hand embarrassment, I don't think I could get through it.

I always end up hitting something when I dance, too. I have awful depth perception though (or 'persecution', as autocorrect decided. The depths hate me!). I have the same eye problem as I gave Q, I sometimes think I should have him walking into walls all the time and wondering where the hell that door came from.
aelfgyfu_meadaelfgyfu_mead on November 10th, 2013 05:59 pm (UTC)
Oh, so I wasn't imagining I'd seen Fiennes read that slash. I didn't think it was hilarious. I felt overwhelming mortification, and I don't even write that stuff. Fiennes was a good sport.

I walk into doorways. I think I'm going right through the center, but no, I'm walking into the side opposite the hinges. Daughter is an athlete but keeps getting herself on doorknobs, apparently overcorrecting for my problem (which she has surely observed).

I'm not sure how old Daughter is, but she might just be having issues with proprioception as she grows. I've lost a bunch of weight recently (planned and healthily, not through illness or starvation) and I have no sense of where I am in the universe any more. Adding my eye problem in means much bruising.

I'm also a klutz, though. So is Mum. She's spilled her coffee two days in a row by completely missing the table she's setting it down on. Of course, it might be because she won't take her eyes off the iPad game she's playing. It was not a good thing to teach her how to download apps.
aelfgyfu_meadaelfgyfu_mead on November 10th, 2013 06:32 pm (UTC)
Daughter has done this for some time now, so it may be exacerbated by her growth, but I'm afraid the basic problem may be familial klutziness.

Of course, she's not alone. When they give awards at meets, odds are pretty good that at least one person will trip on her way up to accept them or fall off the podium.

I have a friend who used to be a professional ballet dancer. She danced with some of the best companies and when she's on stage and alone or on a sparsely populated stage, she's wonderful. But when she walks or is partnered with someone, she's constantly knocking into things.

That could be a problem!
The Writer They Call Tayawanderingbard on November 10th, 2013 07:07 pm (UTC)
I took dance lessons for several years, and danced competively. Still a klutz. I think it's different when your movement is decided on, and not as you go. I am graceful as hell with a plan. Without it, I'm Frankenstein's monster.
aelfgyfu_mead: Lokiaelfgyfu_mead on November 10th, 2013 05:58 pm (UTC)
They showed him porn?! What is wrong with people? (Who was it I saw made to read porn fanfic in front of a camera? Was it Ralph Fiennes? It was so awful I have nearly succeeded in wiping it from my memory.)
The Writer They Call Tayawanderingbard on November 10th, 2013 06:02 pm (UTC)
They showed him some weird fan art, one of which was Loki and Thor (I believe, the naughty bits were blurred).

I hate it when they do that to the actors. Because I understand that the people who make the art are thinking of them as Thor and Loki, but I'm sure when the actors see it, it just looks like 'me and Chris Hemsworth'. And I'm not sure if the people who make it or show it understand that. I don't have anything against making it. Not particularly my cup of tea, but that's fine. Just...don't show it to the actors. Don't.
formerly lifeinsomniacjoonscribble on November 10th, 2013 06:10 pm (UTC)
They showed a few fanarts. Two were NSFW and one was just bizarre. It featured what Loki would look like as a single mom. So that was less porn and more WTH?
X-parrotxparrot on November 10th, 2013 04:50 am (UTC)
It is possible that Tom Hiddleston is a very complex clockwork doll designed to fangirl specifics. It's that or he's a mass-hallucination induced by prolonged squee. Either way I am very skeptical that he actually exists XPXPXP
formerly lifeinsomniacjoonscribble on November 10th, 2013 04:52 am (UTC)
We will all remember the day Tom Hiddleston fell over dancing and the wires and gears were exposed.
aelfgyfu_meadaelfgyfu_mead on November 10th, 2013 06:01 pm (UTC)
Was I hallucinating, or did TH actually break beer bottles on the host? They were fake beer bottles and not real bottles, right?
formerly lifeinsomniacjoonscribble on November 10th, 2013 06:08 pm (UTC)
I'm going to make the deduction they were fake bottles or else Josh Horowitz's reaction would most likely have been a little more horrified.
aelfgyfu_meadaelfgyfu_mead on November 10th, 2013 06:42 pm (UTC)
Let's hope so. And let's presume that both of them knew they were fake, and that Hiddleston didn't think that he was hitting Josh Horowitz with real glass!
The Writer They Call Tayawanderingbard on November 10th, 2013 07:09 pm (UTC)
I think they were probably sugar glass. I hope they were. I'm sure some of it was scripted.
