    What are your thoughts on everything everywhere all at once please?

    i really enjoyed it! we're going through a bit of Happy Nihilist moment in cultural time, i think, and this movie is such a lovely expression of that while also being like. so new, and genre-bending, and surprising. i love that at the core of all its maximalism there was really a delight in the mundane, and the way in which a (very forceful) broadening of your horizon can remind you that littleness and routine and familiarity deserve your love, too. i loved everything about jobu tupaki, her style, her dialogue, her villanelle-dialled-up-to-200 vibes. honestly, i think "colourful comedy that makes you cry" just might be my favourite genre of the year :')

    #WILL say that that exact maximalism made my friend who is more prone to sensory overload than i am a little unwell in the cinema #even though she still came out having loved it #looove a comedy that's a drama that's an action adventure that's a martial arts film that's a science fiction movie that's a #idk it fits in so well with this current zeitgeist of like #what is there still to say? what way is there still to say it? art's a factory farm & we're all on our way out #and the answer is always either a kind of gentle abnegation #(think like. the homestead slow living cottagecore thing) #or everything that's going on in this movie #and it makes me happy that this is the direction art is just......taking now? at least in places #so what if we're singing while rome burns. maybe it's a fun song. maybe it's better than NOT singing. since rome's burning anyway #asks#anon

    Hey, I hope you've been well! I wanted to ask, since I really value your meta, what is your opinion on the necessity of John's kid according to blog theory? If he invented a baby when irl it died/wasn't his/ was fake, then how would he justify this fictional story to the people? It would make his rship with Mary seem good, but he can't make a baby appear out of nowhere in his real life and it would contradict his blog. This is the only thing I can't make sense of in blog theory and it is a bit confusing!

    Hey, anon! Thank you, that's very kind of you. The short answer to your question is that I'm not really sure. My own theory is partly consistent with blog theory but not actually blog theory, and I suspect there are a few different theories being worked on by different people that involve some element of blog theory; it's possible that it's not all one thing.

    What I have gathered is that blog theory tucks S4 (and maybe TAB?) into a discrete package that can be called "fiction" within the framework of the show. However... for me, Rosie Watson is one thing that makes this difficult if not impossible, because she provides tangible continuity between TSOT and everything that comes later. And if a random person in the post-S4 Sherlock universe can pick up "S4" in a bookshop and read about Rosie's development as a toddler, that might explain her absence as a real person after S4, but it wouldn't explain how/why she disappeared/wasn't born and it wouldn't contribute to anything in-universe (such as an alibi for the real John), where people can see that there is no baby. As such, there is the opposite of "a necessity of John's kid" in a fictional S4 if the rest of the show is "real". In fact, our attention is drawn to her status within S4 ("Has that come out?"). It's one of the first things the viewer is prompted to question. Why do that if the viewer/reader is supposed to be convinced that she's real?

    TL;DR, I'm confused, too, although I am genuinely not the person to ask about this.

    But since you did ask, here's how I think about Rosie from my perspective. Mary Morstan is consistently associated with gaslighting on this show, if you look at it through a canon lens. Her pregnancy has an indefinite quality to it, mostly to do with timing (everyone's hair is too long when the baby is born and John's "I'm going to be a dad" blog.jpg post can't decide if it's past or present). The baby mirrors both Sherlock (see John and Lestrade's comedy act at the beginning of TST) and John (Sherlock calls her Watson and speaks to her as he would to John), rather like Mary herself. So, to me, the baby feels very not-real, just as Mary does (and well... we can hardly expect a not-real Mary to have a real baby).

    So, what good is a not-real Rosie, or even a Rosie of uncertain status? Why is she there at all? First, I think she is actually useful as a metaphor in a number of ways. The "Rosie is a gun" metaphor is a good example, and has interesting implications for the end of TFP. But also, she forces us to address the status of characters who simply don't appear to be real in the Sherlock universe, which is handy if you're planning an explicit confrontation between fiction and reality. That is something Doyle played with a lot and it was the focus of the 2007 film Reichenbach Falls (which... yeah, does actually feature an in-universe character picking up a book about a person in her universe who she knows is fictional, and that tension between real and not-real is the point of the film), and it's something that happens in nearly all of Steven Moffat's work and even some of Mark Gatiss's work (looking at you, An Adventure in Space and Time).

    So, you know... it seems more likely than not that we'll see a similar confrontation in S5, and I have to say, that would be more appropriate in Sherlock than it may have been in any of their other work, partly because of how and why Doyle wrote the stories, and partly because of what fans have been doing with them since Doyle's own time.
