Real-life people played by Benedict Cumberbatch.

Absolutely beautiful.

The countdown to Benedict’s birthday is nearing it’s end and I can’t help but feel extremely grateful for the existence of this being.He’s shown me and so many others a different way to live. I feel like my transition to a different state of mind started with Tom Hiddleston.I remember watching his Nerd HQ panel and that quote “We have two lives. The second starts on the day we realize that we only have one” THIS was it. It was like a slap to the face. I needed that spark again. The one I thought I’d lost because of my job and feeling like I was going nowhere in life. He changed the way I looked at the world.Then came Benedict.. How does one even begin to describe what a wonderful person this man is? He’s talented, generous, silly, funny.. I could go on for a very long time but you get the point.He’s changed me for the better and pushed me into action. He’s the reason I started the fundraiser… Oh this fundraiser.It started as a silly pursuit. I asked a friend goflysomeplane what she thought since she’d done something like it before. I bounced ideas off her then when off to research. Sounds simple enough but I can give up on things fairly quickly so this was a pretty big thing for me to do. I researched and found the Mental Health Foundation.Benedict had briefly touched on the subject of Mental Health at a convention which is a huge thing since there’s such a big stigma around this subject.I asked 2 more friends ( londonphile thefittongroundcrew ) for help on finalizing the page and getting a description and photo made. With that all done, I waited until May 1st then launched it.My main goal in this was to help people and celebrate a great man. I didn’t think about the friends I’d make, the people that would enter my life or the overwhelming feeling of pride that I would feel.Without every single one of you, this wouldn’t have happened. Your time, your donations (monetary or otherwise), your retweets, tweets, reblogs, comments, questions, encouragement, love… Without you, I wouldn’t have made it this far.I wouldn’t have started it, I wouldn’t have increased the goal and I KNOW that I never would have surpassed it like this.From the bottom of my heart, Thank you. Thank you for everything you’ve done and for being amazing human beings.

"Hello! Just letting you know that I have donated under the name of Blythe Soper, Cambridge. I forgot to add my url to my donation, so here is your means of contacting me! Thank you so much for setting up this donation page, I'm sure Benedict would really appreciate it, and your incredibly generous giveaway <3"

Asked by thexth

Hi Blythe,

Thank you for letting me know. I will add this as your contact info.

I wanted to do something to help others and love this fella so it all came together nicely :)

Thank you for your wonderful comments

"no one has ever become poor from giving. kind of a bad choice as a picture, as some people actually would miss payments or groceries for a week if they even donated 10 bucks. it is great that you want to thank people but please don't make other people who simply cannot give, much less give to every fundraiser that is going on this year for his birthday, bad for it. that's just not fair."

Asked by Anonymous

Anonymous,

My intention with this post was to thank everyone that has given in some way.

It’s an umbrella term as I value a reblog as much as a donation because you are giving of your time.

I would never ask anyone to donate who is not financially able to do so.

I understand where you’re coming from and apologize if this made you feel bad in any way.

Charity is good for the heart :)

As the fundraiser nears its end. I can&#8217;t help but think about the journey that brought me to this point.Just a question, a desire to do something for someone that has inspired me so much and has brought great people into my world.One of those being, Aki. Who is one of the main reasons I decided to pursue this. I&#8217;ve honestly never done something like this before.Zachary Levi inspired me to donate to Operation Smile and Tom Hiddleston to UNICEF which I do when I can but I was never inspired to start a fundraiser. Benedict inspired me to do this.3 People knew what I was planning before I announced it to everyone and they were all so supportive and lovely. I feel that if these people had not been there, it would have a been a very different story. (I love you Aki goflysomeplane, Jenny thefittongroundcrew &amp; Silvia londonphile )Everyone that has donated to the fundraiser has shown me that anyone, no matter what the circumstance can really make a difference. That $1 can go a long way and that this fandom can do wonderful, charitable things.I&#8217;m so thankful that everyone has been so supportive of this charity and of me in association. I appreciate every RT, Reblog, Minutes, Hours that you spend helping me promote this and encouraging me when I thought I couldn&#8217;t do it anymore.I didn&#8217;t give up because you wouldn&#8217;t let me. Even when I got down or when people weren&#8217;t being as supporting as I thought they&#8217;d be. The kindness and love shown to me have amazed me. The generosity of so many when I added the giveaway element to the fundraiser. So many wonderful artistic people donated items which frankly still blows my mind a bit.Thank you x 10000000000 for everything you&#8217;ve done, said, given, donated and the love you&#8217;ve magnified by being a truly amazing human being.XOXO :D

"Hello Dear! I just put $10 toward the bday fundraiser. Thank you for supporting a wonderful charity."

Asked by flightdeckorchids

Thank you for donating. Would you like me to contact you thru Tumblr or thru thr email tied to the donation?

It’s my pleasure. It’s such an important charity.

"Hello, I wanted to say what a wonderful 'giveaway' you are doing to help the Mental Health Foundation. I'm such a huge fan of Ben that this was just perfect. I was only able to donate $5 but I know every bit helps, I put my twitter name on there but I just wanted to avoid confusion because I logged in with FB (name Raine Dawson-same as Twitter), but I signed with my real name- Kimberly. I can best be contacted by my Twitter account @ buzzyngabe. Thanks :)"

Asked by barkergirl33

Thank you for donating. It means so much and I’m glad you could participate. I will note your Twitter as the primary contact.

great. more teasing.
No disrespect to Sherlockology here, because this is clearly out of their hands. I appreciate their work regarding this.… But rather a bit of a sassy raised eyebrow towards the BBC, the Sherlock people, the Con people … to everyone who has been pushing it and pushing it recently. I get it. Finalising plans for anything related Sherlock must be a nightmare. I also get that this sort of ‘teasing’ is seen as a valid marketing strategy. But if you don’t have official news: say so. If you don’t want to say that you don’t have news: don’t tease about it and come up empty handed! If you haven’t finalised details, don’t let people closely connected to the show tease about a maybe maybe not possible possibly not Christmas special… twice, without an immediate follow up!
I am tired. I am broke. I am waiting. I don’t need to be toyed with on top of that! … it’s not exciting anymore … to be perfectly honest: it’s exhausting!

all of this.

Hi Guys!

So as some of you know, I’m currently fundraising for the Mental Health Foundation in honor of Benedict’s Birthday. Well I thought a giveaway would be a great tie in since I want to reward the efforts and generosity of the collective.

DC vs. Marvel (via)

YES. FUCKING YES.

ALL THE YES

This is the reason I’m not too keen on DC, and why I adore Marvel, perfectly summed up and I didn’t even realize it until I read it.

I guess I’m showing my age, but GOD DAMN I want a Wonder Woman movie. The ONE TV series she got is as old as I am. (Seriously, it began airing in November 1975, when I was FIVE MONTHS OLD!) I grew up idolizing Lynda Carter, even if I didn’t like her alter Diana Prince. (I thought Diana was too hung up and moony over Steve.) 
DC is too busy being an old, tired dinosaur of a company to realize that *HOLY SHIT* they have other characters besides Batman and Superman.
(I love Superman and Batman too, (esp. Batman Beyond) but JESUS FUCK, let’s get some other ideas, please!)

I FUCKING LOVE THIS!! I love my Batman and he&#8217;ll always be my guy but Marvel kicks it in the ass SO FUCKING HARD!
