Choose! Semifinals of Fandom Wars.

I want to cherish this image right now.

Because this death match will NOT be pretty, fandom.  Right now BBC Sherlock is crushing Harry Potter, for which I'm grateful... tentatively.  I know it won't last!

As you see, Supernatural is in the wrong position, as Doctor Who is crushing them.  I expect DW will prevail there.

The other reason I want to cherish this is that the 3 Chic Geeks are funny.  Their summary yesterday is perfect.  Sherlock cannot be out-sulked.  (NO, he can't!!)  Rowling trumps GRRM.  Trek decimated by a Time Lord.  You get the picture.

Round 4 has 72 hours from sometime yesterday.  You may ONLY vote once for each category.

So who is it?  Sherlock or Harry??  The Doctors -- all of them -- or Supernatural?
Pick one from each!  8)  Tell your friends, confuse your enemies... erm.

Eye candy, Jerusalem, and Hawking.

First, Stephen Hawking and Benedict Cumberbatch in very brief video about Hawking.

Cheekbones alert!  Because you know and I know what a great sign that is!  Thanks to virtualloki's tumblr for the pic; Tweeted here.
Alas, we didn't push Alan out of Anglo 2013 Semifinals... but we sure pushed hard.  Whoo-hoo, Cumbercollective!  8)  Ben's score kept going up (reaching 42.55%) although Alan retained his 15% lead.

So that means that Loki =cough= Hiddles will go against Snape.  Make sure to vote in the Anglo 2013 Finals if you want to aid them in their quest.  

Everything after the break is some level of spoiler, mostly for s2, maybe s4:

Scenes and other setlock.

Strictly speaking, this isn't really setlock.  But it reveals enough of a scene from s3 ep1 that I'm treating it as setlock.

Ben posing with setlock fans -- lots and lots of fans, courtesy of Buzzfeed.

Look, it's Lestrade!  Mark's so cool.

What is John wearing?  Why are you laughing, Ben?

How can Ben/SH look so hot?

John watching Sherlock at door.  Sherlock and John -- and whose coat's behind them?

Behind the scenes of ep2.  ETA:  Buzzfeed shows some mild setlock Tweets here.

A photoset of Ben, Martin, and Amanda on set.  When you're off to watch setlock, Amanda wishes you well.  8)

Political messages via setlock.

Ben has been doing statements at setlock.  No, really.  So these aren't spoilers for s3.

First was this message to reporters 17-August-2013.  Yesterday he did a four-page statement about democracy.

In all seriousness, I wonder what he'll do tomorrow?  Bless you, Ben, you lovely man.  You keep telling people about serious things.

Psst, Anglo Semifinals ends today!

Semifinals for Anglo Fan Favorites wraps today.  Voting closes 22-August-13 at 11am Eastern (GMT -4).

So mere hours left.  We fans have been mobilizing!

Ben was going below 41 percent.  Now his score is going up, and right now it's 42.12 percent.  You can watch the points rising.  Bless fandom.

Whether Cumbercookies, Cumbercollective, or Cumber-whatever-else... Sherlockians, Trek fans, LOTR fans, Cabin Pressure fans... we're all in this together.  You're fine whatever fandoms you're part of.  Remember that.

Please vote hourly and, if you're a fan of Ben and/or Team Sherlock... do please vote for Ben!  Many thanks.  Cumberhugs!

P.S.  If you're on tumblr, please reblog this post and tag it Benedict Cumberbatch, please please!  Thank you!!

Sponsored by tumblr: Sherlockian moments.

WARNING!  Any links after the s1 eps could possess feels and/or Reichenbach.  

Yay for tumblr, particularly the Final Problem's #EverySherlockianFamilyIsSherlockianInItsOwnWay tag!

Do you want to watch SH?  After three episodes.  Not.  Watching Sherlock.  I don't know why I'm doing this to myself.

-- I tried to resist doing any Cumberbatched ones, but I failed; I also missed the guys' versions, sorry!  I aimed for funnies, mostly.

Thanks, WETA; please vote Anglo Fan semifinals!

May 2013, Sherlockian (Lacy) at WETA wrote Filming wraps on Episode 2, Airdate Rumors Debunked.  Do read if you want to know what BBC factors would preclude Sherlock s3 airing in September, October, or November 2013.

Remember that Sue Vertue herself said September is not happening.  And she would know!

Spoiler zone

WETA has the July 2013 vids of Ben doing Top Gear.  STID and RF in one vid.

WETA also has a great 2012 piece about Reichenbach.  (I'd put a bunch of speculation links next, but just visit the Final Problem in sidebar.  It's easier.)

Anglo Fan Favorites has 34 hours left -- but although Ben and Alan were really close at the start, things are looking bad for our Sherlock.  I haven't given up yet.

Please vote as much as you can!  Bribe your friends and family, tell your enemies a vote for Ben would make you cry -- anything possible!  Well, almost anything.

If you have tumblr, PLEASE post "vote!" links there too.  Thanks!

Anglo Semifinals continue; also fan art.

Cumberbatched:  Smiling in grayWavy hair.  Cute from Japan.  Smiling, same outfit and haircut!  With doodle, "Don't kill me Tumblr..."  That smile of his (monochrome).

Sherlocked fan art:  Adorable Sherlock A-Z.  Fan art crossover (oops, JM!) the Pool in Great Game.

Gif of happy Sherlock from Study.

The first collar moment in Baskerville, walking up to the pub.  

In the spoiler zone of s2:

Fan art:  Sherlock poster "I may be on the side of--" which will very probably give you feels.

Spectacular fan art by Lasse17, photo set of characters inspired by Scandal.

ETA:  A really smashing list of shows that Ben is in.  Includes trailers.  Thanks, WETA!

P.S.  Please keep voting in the Semifinals at Anglo Fan Favorites for Ben!
