Benedict Cumberbatch fangirl

So I want to take a moment to discuss my current crush on Benedict Cumberbatch.

When I was a teenage girl living in Indonesia, I had major crushes on the stars of that age. But then I grew up, and life was not as starry driven. And I think I didn't really crush on an actor till David Tennent. For you non-geeks, that's the 10th Doctor Who. But he quit being the Doctor (Booo!) and so my love for him waned. But he's still on The List.

Anyways, so then I watched a few episodes of BBC's Sherlock. And as a proper geek girl, I loved the show. But somewhere around Season 2, as I was watching, I realized: Dude. Benedict Cumberbatch is HOT. And then I decided I had a crush on him. So apparently at this point, his star was rising as well, and he was Kahn in Star Trek, and now in a million upcoming movies.

But I feel like as a geek girl, not that many people know about Benedict Cumberbatch. But apparently I was wrong. Because he is all over the internet and apparently his fandom consists of really geeky and snarky girls like me. Apparently, Sherlock is pretty popular. And the more I learn about that guy, he seems like the nicest guy. He is super sweet on his fandom, seems to find it bewildering that he suddenly has a fanbase. The fandom decided to call themselves "Cumberbitches" which he adorably thinks is just not right. According to Cumberbatch: "I won't allow you to be my bitches. I think it sets feminism back so many notches. You are… Cumberpeople."

Anyways, yes, I have a crush on an adorable actor. Matt Smith would've been the natural succession to David Tennent but he is more cutesy then sexy. Here's hoping for a sexy 12th Doctor.
