Life Is Endless When Seen Thru My Eyes

Willkommen, bienvenue, welcome to the CumberNinjas tumblr page.

I reblog 99.9% Benedict Cumberbatch & Sherlock.

This tumblr is NOT Spoiler Free. Thread with caution & Enjoy your visit :)

Let’s take a moment to talk about this man. He’s an amazing actor, he has a big heart which is clear when he shares his philanthropic ways and how he adores his fans. He is kind, silly, funny and beyond adorable. Lovable, modest and ridiculous in the best ways.

I can honestly say that his influence brought back that flame that life,  work and bullshit tried to drown. He showed me love in the form of the people that I call friends. He’s shown me kindess and gentleness when his heart opens to a cause and we rally around it without hesitation. 

He’s inspired change in me when I started to fundraise. When I purchased a ticket to a play that I’d given all hope on and now I’m planning my birthday getaway. 

There’s a reason for this post. This man is just that, a man. He is a person like you or I. He has family, friends and a significant other. He’s looking for happiness and fulfillment which we all chase. 

I love this man for who he is. For the constant gifts he gives us and yes, I objectify him at times because he is beautiful and for everything that comes in that marvelous package. I am only human.

No matter who he decides to share his time or life with, I am happy for him. He makes us so happy with the many things he does and he deserves all the happiness in the world. 

A happy Benedict Cumberbatch is the best kind.

Remember his humanity when you try to tear him down, when you steal a moment to share with others and when you breach something that we all take for granted and that he holds most dear.

Fundraiser/Giveaway Wrap-Up
So all the giveaway items have been sent out to their new owners. I’m happy that everything is set but I’m a little sad too.Not because I wanted to keep all the goodies but because I loved fundraising. I didn’t expect to. I thought it would be hard to get people to donate or care since there are so many charities out there and not everyone can afford to donate to a cause.I was pleasantly surprised by the support and donations of items for the giveaway tie-in. I only asked one person, everyone else asked if they could give something and that made me so happy.meikezane, sodelightfully, @jhwilts70, punkroxmum, enerjax, @abeetata, darnedsock, cumberapron, thefittongroundcrew, @KC_in_NYC & wahnwerknr all came thru for me in the most wonderful ways. They donated items and were so supportive thru the entire fundraiser campaign.I don’t have enough words to tell you all how much you mean to me or to thank you for everything you did.That goes to EVERYONE! For every kind words, reblog, retweet, donation.For sharing your stories with me about how Mental Health has touched or currently touches your lives.I’d lost some of my faith in humanity but you’ve all restored it even when times get tough I know that there is someone out there that cares.*stops waffling* In conclusion, Thank you for everything *blows kisses, sends goodies and gives you all a hug* :DP.S. To my wonderful ones thefittongroundcrew londonphile & goflysomeplane for the encourament and support to make this all happened. I wouldn’t have gotten to do any of it without you :D <3

Warning: This might cause you to defriend, unfollow, etc. but it’s something I feel I have to get off my chest.

I haven’t been a part of the Benedict Cumberbatch fandom for as long as some of the people I know. So I doubt many people will see this or give a flying fuck what I think.
I have meet some of the most wonderful people since starting my CumberNinjas twitter. They have been supportive, kind, selfless and loving. Those are the people that make every day a happy one for me by just being friends or posting silly things.
They are the part that keeps me going and uplifts me.
Then there is the other part.. The part where because someone has countless followers that they can be mean, condescending, pretentious and just plain rude.
These people ruin what this place means to me because I see people bow down to them because of the “access” that they have to Benedict.
No, this is not me being jealous. I don’t give a fuck if you talk to the man, if you this or if you do that. Congrats! More power to you but wielding that as something that makes you better than others is not right.
It doesn’t make you more special or better than me. No one is. We should be in this together and hold the other up, not brag or bring others down because we want all the glory.
This is the world we live in regardless of the fandom or life you lead. There will always be someone like this. I get it, I can’t change it. It is what it is but I will make it my mission to spread as much joy and love as I possibility can because I CAN!
We can. We can affect change by spread kindness to others. A simple hello can make the difference in someone’s day. Trust me, I know this for personal experience.
So that’s it, I’ve said my piece. I need to take this weight off my shoulders because it’s not worth carrying around.
A Little Post About The British Takeover Of My Heart :)
I remember when I first really got the Tom Hiddleston thing. I was in SDCC for the weekend, twitter had been going crazy after he came out dressed as Loki for the Thor: The Dark World panel. Friends of mine had even texted me reaction tweets as they saw the video.
I didn&#8217;t see it for a few hours and when I did, I got chills. I feel in love with that man that day. His presence was unmistakable and profound. When the Nerd HQ Panel was announced, I tried my best to buy a ticket but it was sold out in a blink of an eye. I was disappointed as I had friends going and I would have loved to be there but I guess it wasn&#8217;t meant to be. I took the train home that day, not thinking about the panel until I finally got a chance to sit down and take a look.I&#8217;ve never regretted that decision once since I did. In fact, I credit that panel in changing my perspective on life. I work in a place that is pretty chaotic and at times feels like it&#8217;s eating my soul. The way he saw the world opened up my eyes and let me see that I was letting my job take control over who I was and I didn&#8217;t want that.After that, I was on board the Hiddles train. He&#8217;s handsome, British and smart. He re-introduced me to Shakespeare which I&#8217;d forgotten to appreciate for far to long. His Hollow Crown performance was something truly special and I&#8217;m glad that I watched it after a friend pushed me to.Tom is wonderful and a hell of a man but when Benedict came into my life everything changed.Sherlock was the catalyst for all of this. My friend had raved about it for a while but I&#8217;d resisted which was silly since she&#8217;d turned me onto Doctor Who which I know adore. 5 minutes into the first episode of Sherlock, I knew that this show was like nothing I&#8217;d seen before and when Benedict first appeared with his long coat and crazy curls, I was hooked.So here I sit now, talking to friends I&#8217;ve meet online because of Mr. Cumberbatch. Friends I know I never would have meet otherwise. Planning get-togethers and epic trips. Laughing, crying and overall enjoying the many gifts that he&#8217;s brought into my life.If I ever get the chance, I&#8217;ll simply say Thank You. For just being who he is, he&#8217;s changed my life for the better.

Benedict Cumberbatch’s first time at Comic Con ➙ Recap.

He’s so excited to be there and I love it!

This man is the one I’ve lined up for Hall H for. I’ve braved the wilds of the Exhibit Hall to catch a glimpse of him. I basically just went into the convention center to see Lego Smaug and the big beautiful Smaug head that WETA brought and Monday, he will have the honor of being the first man I’m up at 130am for.

I feel like my life has been far more interesting since he entered it. Damn talented Brit.

My London/Hamlet Debate

So as far as everyone knew, I’d given up on going to London for Hamlet because of the flight, housing, tickets, etc.

Yesterday there were lots of things that were brought to my attention. Cheaper airlines, offered housing, potential seat options for shows during my birthday week.

So now London seems very attainable but Hamlet seems impossible since thousands of people will be going after the same days and most likely seats as I.

If I don’t manage to get a ticket, I guess I can always try to buy them when in London if they release any. So that’s all up in the air at the moment.

So London, I’ll get to see you again after so many years and hopefully meet some of the people I love so much. I’ll probably take the train into Paris.. I’ve never been to you, Paris. This should change.

This is where things stand at the moment. If you will be in London from October 19 to the 26th then I’d like to meet you while I’m there.

No one knows what the future holds but I can only live in the now and in this reality. Let’s see what comes my way.

The countdown to Benedict&#8217;s birthday is nearing it&#8217;s end and I can&#8217;t help but feel extremely grateful for the existence of this being.He&#8217;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 &#8220;We have two lives. The second starts on the day we realize that we only have one&#8221; THIS was it. It was like a slap to the face. I needed that spark again. The one I thought I&#8217;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&#8217;s talented, generous, silly, funny.. I could go on for a very long time but you get the point.He&#8217;s changed me for the better and pushed me into action. He&#8217;s the reason I started the fundraiser&#8230; Oh this fundraiser.It started as a silly pursuit. I asked a friend goflysomeplane what she thought since she&#8217;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&#8217;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&#8217;t think about the friends I&#8217;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&#8217;t have happened. Your time, your donations (monetary or otherwise), your retweets, tweets, reblogs, comments, questions, encouragement, love&#8230; Without you, I wouldn&#8217;t have made it this far.I wouldn&#8217;t have started it, I wouldn&#8217;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&#8217;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.
