I'm fairly sure...
- this is not the exact object I've got the idea from;
- the original explanation I've read elsewhere (where???), is not 100 % the same as this;
- I don't know where the hell the Magnum-parallel came from;
- I still can use the "caricature"-part of the explanation;
- it still makes sense on a very "modern" level;
- the original explanation didn't mention pin-ups;
- this needs more research;
- it's too much work for a so pointless-little SGA fic.

Like Brother and Sister: With Emily, in an odd, rather codependently unhealthy way. (He is simultaneously terrified of her and desperate for her approval and friendship, while she claims not to need him while calling in favors from him every five minutes.) At the same time, the two of them are probably the only people in the world who know each others' secrets, and they share some moments of genuine affection.

How the hell can I communicate with Tumblr? Do I want to? Anyway...

While I agree with about 82% of this post, I still don't get how anyone can miss this:

"Sherlock saying things doesn’t make them true."

No, John inmediately agreeing and confirming Sherlock's statements, mentioning he was right on everything except her gender makes them true. I mean you know... John? John Watson? Little awesome guy sharing a flat with the protagonist? Seriously how the hell can someone miss this? How? The? Hell? (And why I am overreacting like this?)

By the way:
- It would make an interesting subplot Harry having nervous tremors, or other visible symptoms and John, as a doctor, still being estranged from her.
- If Harry isn't an alcoholic, one has to find a damn good reason for John to be estranged from her.
- Almost all the Harries I've seen are not butch!lesbian!Johns, but Catherine Tates. Especially on Tumblr, especially on Tumblr gifsets.
- Or poorly disguised self-inserts.
- Hair dye. (Almost makes sense in context.)

'Nuff said.

I am thoroughly convinced that Juliette Silverton of Grimm is Cancer, and I think I can argue in favor of Nick Burkhardt being Taurus. I *am* on a skeptical side regarding... everything, including astrology, but until I see one of them celebrating their birthday in winter, I'm unconvincable otherwise. Headcanon, yay.

Love Match: Taurus and Cancer
Touchy and Feely
By Molly Hall, About.com http://astrology.about.com/od/tauruslovematches/qt/TaurusCancer.htm

Upside: Lovers of the cozy cave; both crave stability; loyal and long-term minded; builders of material comforts; wealth-oriented -- creating abundance; sensuality meets emotional potency; family-oriented.

Downside: Can get bogged down, stagnant. (earth water = mud); possessive of each other; messy boundaries; loss of objectivity.
