A haven for lovers of the written word

Five Reasons To is basically my way of convincing you to love the same things I do. Because I love a lot of things for a lot of reasons. Hopefully my powers of persuasion will work their magic on you, and you can find new things to love!

Today, I am going to give you five reasons to:

Watch Sleepy Hollow

1. Ichabod Fucking Crane

So Ichabod’s been asleep for something like two hundred years, and when he wakes up in the modern day, he really has no idea what to do, or what things are, and it is just PRECIOUS. He doesn’t understand phrases, or the internet, or paying for water, or the frothy stuff on top of cappuccinos and I JUST LOVE HIM. HE IS PERFECT AND PRECIOUS AND NEEDS TO BE PROTECTED UNTIL THE END OF TIME. MY BB. And just look at that face, FFS.

2. Ichabod and Abbie

They are the epitome of best friends, seriously. They’re always supporting each other, and risking their lives for each other. I don’t think there’s anything these two wouldn’t do for each other, in all honesty. FRIENDSHIP GOALS. They also love each other, but haven’t figured it out yet.

3. The Humour

Even though this series is serious AF, there are so many little moments that are funny and adorable. Most of them revolve around Ichabod – BLESS HIS COTTON SOUL – but it’s such a relief to be able to smile and laugh among all the terrible and serious life-threatening shit that happens on this show.

4. The Storylines

For some reason, there’s a kind of consensus that season two of Sleepy Hollow wasn’t as good as season one, but I disagree. I actually loved the fact that there was a whole storyline in most of the episodes. It wasn’t like a villain of the week trope – they were all connected in really important ways. It’s also super interesting to see new creatures, and see different interpretations of creatures I’ve seen before. And a lot of them are kind of heartbreaking, like the episode that the GIF above is from.

5. The Shipping Pain

As much as I adore the fact that Ichabod and Abbie’s friendship bond is so incredible and true, I desperately want them to end up together. Imagine that perfect friendship, but with KISSES. It would be the most epic relationship ever. They care about each other so much, and THE LOOKS they get when they look at each other, and THE SCENE ABOVE. I just want them to realise their true feelings for each other. And it is so painful wanting that, and seeing it NOT HAPPEN. But I hope it will one day. IT BETTER.


So these are five reasons for you to watch Sleepy Hollow! It’s definitely one of my favourites, and I hope I have convinced you to give it a go :D

Ta ta for now,

    I was looking into this one recently and thought it looked good. But then I was distracted by all the other shows because boy there are a lot to be distracted by. I just watched the trailer and the humour is PERFECT. The line about Starbucks was so funny and the MC has no clue about present time, so that should provide many laughs.

    I’m convinced. You’re work here is done.

  2. Awwww man, you’re making me wish I’d kept watching this show. I watched all of Season 1 but never ended up watching Season 2 – I didn’t have the time, now I regret missing out on it. I think I need to put it on my to-be-watched list!

  3. So this one has been on my list approximately for eternity – alas, it was pushed aside by all of the other television shows I want to watch and books to read and films to see and music to listen to and podcasts to hear and, and, and… but it has been bumped up a notch after this lovely post. Will most certainly let you know what I think of it! xx

    • Chiara says:

      I’m so glad I was able to bump this up on your list! I definitely know how you feel re: endless list of things to listen/watch/read. But this one is definitely worth it :D I hope you love it, dear <3

  4. Tasya says:

    I saw few episodes from the 1st season, but didn’t continue watching because it wasn’t that appealing to me :( But I agree with you, Ichabod is such a cutie! He’s basically clueless about everything! XD And I saw that crossover with Bones and that episode was pretty interesting! Maybe one day I would re-watch this show :D

    • Chiara says:

      Oh, no! I’m so sad that it wasn’t for you, Tasya :( But I’m glad you acknowledge the cuteness that is Ichabod ^.^ I haven’t seen the cross-over episode yet! But I am pretty keen for it. I hope you do! You might like it more now :D

  5. Another show I’ve been meaning to get into! I’m pretty sure I’ll end up loving this

  6. I’ve heard about Sleepy Hollow but OMG ICHABOD SOUNDS LIKE STEVE ROGERS. I’m already intrigued so much, and SHIPPING PAIN EEEEEK. Your fangirling has infected me — I’m adding this to the to-watch list!

    • Chiara says:

      ICHABOD IS SUPER LIKE STEVE, I TOTALLY JUST REALISED. I love their endearing “I don’t get this”-ness. It slays me. SO MUCH SHIPPING PAIN, ALYSSA! :D I hope you get around to watching it, and that you love it when you do! <3

  7. Valerie says:


    Off to watch the first episode because I have nothing else to do at the moment, and I recently finished Jessica Jones and I need another show to fill the void.

  8. Aentee says:

    OMG this show gives me serious life. Is there anything more endearing than watching Ichabod trying to figure out the horrible bafflement that is modern technology? I think not. I am also in LOVE with his relationship with Abbie, they’re just so good for each other and I like them whether it’s going to turn romantic or not – just… STAY TOGETHER YOU TWO. THAT GIF OMG This reminds me I need to catch up on the series.

    • Chiara says:

      RIGHT? I adore watching him being so confused. It is the cutest thing EVER. I really do like them as friends, but they need to get together. I will be so sad if nothing romantic happens between them *crying* Catch up, Aentee!
