[AU] Sheldon Cooper Appreciation Post!

(Why? Because I just felt like it.)

AU stands for Alternate Universe, which could also mean "alternate reality". AU depicts an entirely different reality than the canon or official universe where a character in a book or movie lives or exists. 
Example: Canon - Harry Potter is a wizard studying in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry; AU - Harry Potter is an ordinary teenager with a knack for science, and is studying at the Michigan Institute of Technology.

The objective of AU is simple: blog about something other than books for at least once a month. It could be about movies, food, fashion, TV shows, etc., just as long as it's not about books. 

Sheldon is a Caltech theoretical physicist who shares an apartment with his colleague and best friend, Leonard Hofstadter (Johnny Galecki). Sheldon exhibits a strict adherence to routine, a total lack of social skills, a tenuous understanding of humor, a general lack of humility or empathy, and displays textbook narcissistic behavior. He also has a very hard time recognizing irony and sarcasm in other people although he himself often employs them. These characteristics provide the majority of the humor involving him, which has caused him to be described as the show's breakout character. Despite speculation that Sheldon's personality traits may be consistent with Asperger syndrome, obsessive–compulsive personality disorder and asexuality, co-creator Bill Prady has repeatedly stated that Sheldon's character was neither conceived nor developed with regard to any of these conditions.

Yes, I love this guy. Oh, and let me count the reasons why.
(A little graphic-heavy post. You have been warned.)

1. He's brutally tactless honest.

As the quote says, "kill me with the truth, but never comfort me with a lie".

2. Simple things make him happy.

Like trains, comic books and Zachary Quinto as Spock in the new Star Trek. Oh, and re-filling the medicine cabinet makes him giddy, too!

3. Surprisingly, he's sane!

He's not crazy! His mother had him tested when he was young! LOL.

4. He's smart!

Too damn smart and not in the least bit humble about it. LOL.

5. The picture below is self-explanatory.

Because Sheldon Cooper cross-dressing as Wonder Woman is relevant in so many ways. I'm right, you're wrong, and you know I'm right. HAH! (This is not even including that one episode he dressed up as a slutty maid!)

Sheldon's Quotable Quotes!

And of course, here's what actor Jim Parsons has to say about the character he portrays on The Big Bang Theory:

Thank you, Dr. Sheldon Cooper, for keeping me sane with your bluntness and social awkwardness through the long nights of studying. I hope you and Amy Farrah Fowler end up together and make extra-smart babies in the future. Well, that is if you get past your asexual tendencies. (I believe you're getting there. Heh.)


  1. I love Sheldon Cooper! But in the last episode, he was just really mean and I didn't like it. It was the first time I was sad over a BBT episode. But my favorite of all is Lenny. I want to date him for real!

    1. Yeah, I didn't like that episode, too. I thought I was the only one not so happy with what Sheldon did. haha I'll take Raj anytime! XD
