I see Cumberbatch tomorrow. So excited.
If anyone is going tomorrow, let me know? Still looking to meet up with someone…
I don’t even know how that happens.
Vote for Benedict as Alpha Male:
Fandom, we’re slacking…
Best get busy, peeps.

Okay, fellow Cumberfans, can we have a quick chat about the upcoming Hamlet business? I know I’m not alone in my excitement about the possibility of getting tickets to the production in 2015, and I plan to make a genuine effort to do so - as I know so many of you will as well.
If/when any of us are lucky enough to get in a seat at the Barbican next year, can we all agree to be on our best behavior during the performance? YES, Benedict is attractive. YES, there’s a possibility he will be in tights.OBVIOUSLY, his performance will be brilliant, swoon-worthy, etc.
Does that mean there should be uncontrollable cat-calls from the audience whenever he sets foot on stage?
Should collective cries of “Squeeeee!” erupt whenever he does something particularly adorable? NO.
Is it OK for people in the audience take photos and/or secretly film the performance, thinking they are being sneaky but managing to be totally obvious in the process?
Let’s all be respectful of both Ben and the other performers as well as the rest of the audience. Help them put on the best performance they can and have just as amazing of an experience as you’re having. Don’t be “that guy” in the front row causing a distraction. Please?
I would greatly appreciate it if you guys could please reblog this so as many of Benedict’s fans can see. This might be a serious problem, and it’s not fair to the rest of the guests who want to watch the show, regardless of who the actors are. Thank you.
Guys, this is so important. Benedict has wanted to play Hamlet since he was seventeen. Let’s not fuck this up for him with dolphin noises and camera-flashes or throngs blocking sidewalks at all the theater exits.
I want to be able to hear a fucking mouse’s sneeze during Hamlet’s monologues. I want Ben to get home easily after his performances, glowing with standing-ovation satisfaction and blissfully unharassed. I am so serious. Show some respect to one of the greatest works of the Bard, and act like fans Ben can be proud of.
This is all self-evident, isn’t it? Everybody is aware that respect is the key word here. And not only respect for Benedict, but for each and every one who will be on stage in that performance :)
Reblogging again as text because this is SO IMPORTANT! Don’t make him regret doing this. Don’t make him regret waiting to find a location that will cater to his huge number of fans. Don’t make him regret doing live theatre when he could be walled off filming in some podunk town in the middle of the swamp. (Hi there, filming for 12 Years a Slave. Why was Benedict’s plantation way out in the middle of nowhere when everyone else was less than 20 minutes from the city? Just curious.) Anyway. Be RESPECTFUL. Please. Catch more flies with honey and all that. Basic operant conditioning. We don’t want to train avoidance.
The way he sits so straight and his arms OMFGSH HIS ARMS I can’t even….*incomprehensible noises*
Always reblog… No matter how innocent this pose may be it gives me the most depraved mind images every single time… 8D
Because that’s exactly how he’d sit and watch you strip after ordering you to do so.
Can we please talk about Benedicts full name
Benedict Timothy Carlton Cumberbatch
who the hell names their child that
literally the same people that named their child william sherlock scott holmes
Not literally. But same culture, same trends, yep.
Remember when Martin and Ben were like really awkward and uncomfortable-looking at the Emmy’s a couple years ago, and they were like “omg we have to stay together, we only know each other”
and now Ben’s at the Oscars alone and he’s just on fucking crack.
I bet his parents are watching and telling each this is not what they raised.
Meanwhile Martin is laughing his ass off phone in hand because he just dared Ben to do it via text message
Head-Canon accepted instantly, because Martin totally would, I’d bet!
I WILL START A RELIGION OVER THE DIP IN BEN C’S BACK
WHO WANTS TO JOIN
I (anothermindpalace), would like to start this message of with a huge thank you to all of you who donated and help us spread the word. So far, we as a fandom managed to reach £1720 for the Prince’s Trust.
Can we make £2000 by saturday night?
I believe we can! We reached £1000 in less then 48 hours when we launched this project last week. That’s absolutely amazing. I would like to try and get the number to 2000. How lovely would it be if we, his fans, could present Benedict a gift of £2000 to the charity that he cares about the most? I believe we can make this happen.
What exactly are we doing?
Benedict is going to be in Birmingham on the 9th of February at a convention that our very own Stephy has a ticket for. Rather than just buying him chocolates that we are not allowed to give him we thought a donation to the Prince’s Trust would be greatly appreciated.
We have set up a JustGiving page which everyone can contribute to, on the day of the event I’ll write a card saying how much we have raised including the names of people who have donated.
If you would like to be a part of this click here and give to a very good cause
Thank you once again!
I know I said 2000 here but guys we are only 73 away from 2500 PPLEAASEEE
IF 73 OF YOU DONATE 1£ WE HAVE THIS AMAZING NUMBER AND I SWEAR ILL BE CRYING EVEN MORE THEN I DID YESTERDAY
I donated a teensy bit and it said 99% of goal by the time my payment had gone through. \o/
