So, according to my Facebook memories, today marks six years since The Great Game aired and left us all floundering with the First Great Sherlock Hiatus.

It'll sound silly, but I have such fond memories of the first Hiatus. That was when I really got into the fandom; there was so much speculation about what was going to happen, how Sherlock and John were going to get out of the tight spot they'd been squeezed into, and where the show was going to go. During that time, I wrote a lot of fanfic, met a lot of people and was really pulled into a fandom like I'd never been pulled into anything before. It was good timing because just a couple of weeks later I was going off to America and Sherlock and the entire fandom, helped in ways I just cannot put words to. I was a long way away from home, but despite everything, it helped me ease. I couldn't stick to the edge; I sank in. I discovered so much about myself.

Just... thanks for that, Sherlock Fandom. Thanks for that.

Poor Sherlock fandom. We are literally made of 98% hiatus. I mean I don't know if anyone calculated it but it seems like even an understatement.
My best hiatus was s2/3, the speculations of How Did He Do It-- followed by "lol whatever why does it matter" season.

We are made of mostly Hiatus, indeed! Poor us.
Yeah, Hiatus #2 was made of many How Did He Do It Theories, but now it's more John is a Jerk and We're Not Happy With That. (Although TAB restored my faith in him a bit... hope they keep rolling with that).
