Oh, Sherlock, you bought that whole TV. And you're not even going to use it (cuz John's gonna make you return it, box and all).

Okay, this one's got roots in the CANON, you guys. And not BBC Sherlock canon, oh no. I'm talking Sir Arthur Conan Doyle-level, turn the pages and read the book canon. "The Hound of the Baskervilles," to be exact. Here's the story: Sherlock holes himself up in his room for a night to ponder, smoking the whole time. When Watson finds him in the morning the air is so thick with smoke he can't breathe and so he opens a window, and Sherlock is all "AARRRGGHHH NO MY PRECIOUS HEAD SPACE!!" (Note: that's not what he really says.) But he does make Watson shut the window, and makes some comment about how he can think best when he's in a still, enclosed environment because it eliminates distractions. He then says, "I have not pushed it to the length of getting into a box to think, but that is the logical outcome of my convictions." And I thought, well, THIS Sherlock might not push things that far, but BBC Sherlock would be ALL OVER THAT SHIT. And then I made this.

Oh, and here's a fun fact, guys: TV's don't come in boxes big enough for a human to sit inside anymore. You know, since they've gotten all skinny and thin lately. HUMOR ME.


(Perspective lulz what's that?)

Next thing you now, he will carve a castle out of the box.

Then put it on his head.

I wouldn't count on that... they still have to make room for all the protective Styrofoam packaging. ;P

Even then, refrigerator boxes are where it's at. :XD:

That would be me half of the time, hiding in the box and either

 

a) Packing peanut pica

b) Thinking

3) Naps in the dark

 

and thats what I'd do in  giant box.

He would totally do that!  :D  It's reminding me of the scene in "The Man with the Twisted Lip" where he spends the whole night in his mind palace smoking his pipe on top of a pillow fort he built himself.



Also, I love the packing peanuts.  :)

Sure, I don't mind. Just make sure to always credit me and link back to either this deviation or my profile page if you release it out into the internet. And show me the final product--I'd like to see it!

I should make some GIFs of my own....

...I can actually see the BBC people pulling this out as a reference to the books. The way they did with the Speckled Blonde and the Geek Interpreter. And the Scandal In Belgravia. I can really see it xD

I liked this so much I went ahead and wrote a short fanfiction about it! :D Hope you don't mind...eek! I credited you and put a link back to here. :D

Here's a link to it if you like: [link]

I got around the issue of TVs not being put in large boxes, by mentioning he also brought a sound system with it. Hee hee. Add that to the list of expenses.

My plasma screen came in a box big enough for my dad to fit inside--he's six-two and weights two-hundred pounds. It was mostly styrofoam on the inside and it also came with a Blu-Ray player from Brandsmart, but still. It counts! :)
