01:13 pm - Elementary

I have so many thoughts about Elementary, but without spoilers, I just need to say:

I SHIP JOAN/SHERLOCK SO HARD IT HURTS ME.

No regrets, no apologies and no need to have it be canon. But there will be all the squee'ing, all the fic, all the picspams, all of everything.

It's got that Mulder/Scully thrill to it that I cannot resist. Which makes sense as Mulder/Scully one of the looser Holmes adapts.

More on "M" later ...

03:28 pm - *tapping toes*

Waiting for [community profile] fandom_stocking to open and see all the prezzies everyone got. :D (Although somehow I screwed up posting the collection on Ao3 and it showed up when it shouldn't have showed up and I wonder what the hell is up with that.)

I have some editing work to do (in RL yet!) but I'll tackle that tomorrow. I'm also crocheting gloves for a friend and a few other things.

AND the tree is down. Was so dry that it pinched me with every ornament taken off, but DONE.

AND WRITING. I have an amnesia story to work on with [profile] enkiduts, Joan/Sherlock schmoop because I HAVE NO SHAME and sundry.

Twin Peaks Recs! Mmmm.

Putting Out Fire (With Gasoline) (9128 words) by Amatara
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Twin Peaks
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Characters: Dale Cooper, Harry Truman, Audrey Horne, Albert Rosenfield, Annie Blackburn, Lucy Moran, Dennis "Denise" Bryson
Summary: When you've pulled someone back from the brink, how do you put them back together again? A series of recordings and interviews, made at the Spokane Valley Hospital, where Dale Cooper was taken after being freed from BOB's control.</p>

Semi-epistolary, amazing voices and the Twin Peaks ladies being HEROIC. Even Lucy!!!! (And Annie!)

The Tender Boughs of Innocence (4398 words) by Amatara
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Twin Peaks
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Albert Rosenfield, Gordon Cole, Chet Desmond, Dennis "Denise" Bryson, Dale Cooper
Summary: Albert didn't reckon himself a coward, a crybaby or a cream puff. What he was was a tender twenty-nine, which at the Bureau still counted as green behind the ears, but he had skill and wit and a bloodhound's instinct for clues, and he didn't rattle easily. Which was what had earned him this case to begin with. Right now, calling him 'rattled' would be stating it mildly.</p>

Pre-series Albert angst gets recc'ed forever. FOREVER. And this is very, very well-done.

01:31 pm - Happy New Year

Got sucked into the wanky vortex that is Tumblr for a while there, as well as hermitizing in email (which was more fun and much less wanky) but I miss talking with people and having this wordy space I can carve out for myself and like-minded conversationalists.

Pictures of cats in PJs, defending Elementary against people who can't walk and chew gum at the same time and posting the gif of RDJ and JL fake-kissing in AGoS for the six-thousandth time is fun, really, but it's definitely missing something.

Therefore to be the change I want to see, I'm making a resolution to post here a whole lot more often.

Items of note:

- I'm really into [community profile] fandom_stocking this year. The easiest, least-pressure challenge, with ficlets, gifs, icons, graphics and plain good wishes given to folks who aren't expecting anything at all. It's over on January 5th and here's the tag list for available fandoms. (The mod is also now looking for volunteers to put something in any empty stockings there might be.)

And because I'm not shy, this is my stocking. I like everything, so ...

- I'm obsessed with Elementary. Obsessed with Joanlock and while some folks don't want that (and that's okay!) I LOVE IT AND WANT IT AND ADORE IT. Sorry, but canon Holmes/Watson will never not make me happy. See above for 'I like everything ..."

I'm a bit shy about writing fic in this universe ... I've been shy about posting fic in general lately, that's just my insecure thing, but I want to read all the USTy RSTy casefile hot nookie angsty romance in the world as well as the fluff.

Come on, former MSR X-Files writers! This is catnip for you! Come and get it! ;)

- Wonder Woman and Superman are currently canon. This makes the world an ever awesomer place.

Things to look forward to in 2013

- Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters (LOL DELICIOUS CHEESE), the next Star Trek, new Teen Wolf (not in the fandom, I just watch), new Swamp People, MORE Elementary, possible filming of the third RDJ/JL Holmes, Oz: The Great and Powerful and other stuff.

And more DW/LJ, hopefully.

Now, how are you guys? Anyone still here? :D

and yes, you get the fake H/W kissing gif under here )

09:08 am - FIC: A Certain Point (Elementary TV)

A Certain Point (1167 words) by faviconingridmatthews
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Elementary (TV)
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Sherlock Holmes/Female Moriarty, Joan Watson and Sherlock Holmes
Characters: Joan Watson, Sherlock Holmes, Female!Moriarty - Character
Summary:

A short, quick speculation on what might happen if the Woman In London is Moriarty. Based heavily on ACD's "The Final Problem".


~*~

She's supposedly a professor of quantum physics, author of notable papers published in the most prestigious journals and teaches in a small, private university somewhere in London. From her picture, all Joan can see is a beautiful woman with brilliant dark eyes, smooth brown skin and a slight smirk that doesn't look particularly evil ... just a bit of the same arrogance more than one intellectual might be guilty of, even Joan herself during certain points in her life.

Holmes insists that Jeanne Moriarty is much, much more.

read the fic below )

Need more Elementary icons. Feedback is appreciated and check out Elementary on Thursdays!

09:56 am - Teen Wolf and Tea

From the Sick As a Dog Files, so nothing to do but mainline the Teen Wolf I dl'd months ago ...

(No spoilers)

It's a surprisingly good show. Good in the continuity department where even the best shows fail after about ten eps (WOW, WHEN DID THIS BECOME A THING), the world-building department (maybe some of the wolf behavioral stuff stretches, but hey, werewolves, not real wolves), the suspense and *gasp* TWIST department and is well-acted, particularly by the older actors (Michael Hogan, WHOA!) but the kids are no slouches either.

The girls in particular are so sympathetic and heartbreaking, the boys aren't too much of the irritating manpain trope (okay, maybe a little bit), and even the boys who are meant to be dicks aren't unwatchable. But the grownups ... SO FLAWED, even the good guys and the 'bad' guys -- who don't think they are bad, just practical -- WHOA.

I'm a little worried about Season Three, for Reasons, but considering I wasn't expecting to get past the fourth ep, I'll be watching.

For the record, I really didn't see overt Stiles/Derek, but I sure as hell saw the Lydia/Allison. Oh, and there are gay people in this! Ordinary, almost boring gay people, who aren't quippy queens or suicidal sisters! They are just ... characters. WOW, WHEN DID THIS BECOME A THING!

Now to get on some SH writing I've been dithering over, after a SECOND week of surprise!vacation and *cough* sickness.

Okay, when you go to a place called "Low Price Animal Clinic" or the like, you really shouldn't complain about what you get.

BUT SRSLY, RECEPTIONIST AND DOCTOR? YELLING AND THROWING THINGS AROUND THE CLINIC LIKE SOME DYSFUNCTIONAL HOUSEHOLD IS NOT COOL.

Damn it. First the receptionist has her bitch on (not directly at me, thank goodness because that's a place she didn't want to go) and then the doctor comes in and starts flinging things in the sink in anger and cursing under his breath. I can't believe I had to ask him, "Are you all right? Should I leave?" while my cat is cringing in the box and he refuses to answer me.

My poor cat was clinging to the carrier door with his claws. I don't blame him, I wanted to climb in there with him. I mean ...

HOLY SHIT, CAPTAIN UNPROFESSIONAL. And then, he looks at my cat, hardly listens to my description of his issues, grumbles over his blood work, barely looks at the actual animal and SHRUGS. "Seems okay to me."

WHAT THE FUCK? At least give me some professional information about WHY HIS BUTT BLEEDS and why I shouldn't be PANICKING. Trying to get a decent answer out of him was like trying to pull teeth -- which my cat needs and HELL NO, YOU AREN'T DOING IT. I wouldn't trust my cat being anesthetized by him if he were the last vet on earth. I'd bring it to my wacky neighbor and let her perform a voodoo spell to cure the cat first.

I hate the vet when they are nice and smiley and informative. NOW I HATE THE VET MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE.

Now I have to find a new place that's a million miles away. But that will be worth it. Damn, I'm so angry right now.

08:29 am - *frowny face*

My recently adopted kitty has bloody stools so it's off to the vet we go. :(

I'm always nervous when I take my pets to the vet. They're upset and scared, I'm upset and scared and it's usually a disaster. (When I take the Sproglet to the doctor, I'm cool and in-charge and ready for anything. I have no idea why I'm so freaked out taking the kitty to the vet. Maybe because the cat cries the entire time?)

OY. MUST BE STRONG. STOP IT ANXIETY, STOP IT.

Anyway, my new cat is very cute. He's a senior and rescued from a cat hoarder and very strangely, had the same name as my late cat, which sealed the deal. He's not the same color, he's a gold tabby with a very fluffy tail (love his tail). And possibly the most affectionate cat you'll ever meet.

Plays with the Sproglet like a kitten, is the lap cat of my dreams, is very well-behaved. We love him so HE'D BETTER NOT BE REALLY SICK.

*sigh*

09:08 am - OH, RAFFLES.

I've just discovered the joys of "Raffles" by E.W. Hornung, ACD's brother-in-law's affectionate tweaking of the Holmes and Watson dynamic, making his genius AJ Raffles and baffled wingman, Bunny Manders, (BUNNY, OMG) criminals instead of crimefighters.

Not to mention that the '70's BBC series (streaming on Netflix here) is the Best Thing Ever, in that '70's British Show way.

There's a very long post about all this in me somewhere, but for now ...OMG. THE BEAUTY OF IT ALL. My Tumblr has more, a lot more, but this place will get some too.

I'm afraid to fic it. I don't think there's any way I can get the nuance and language close enough and I just want PORN. And there's hardly any fic too. :( Boo.

08:25 am - Porn Battle Amnesty!!!


pbamnes

Found here


"Happy mid-July, everybody! It's recently been announced that Porn Battle XIV will happen in January of 2013. That means we've got some time to play before the next official challenge, so, to make those months drop off the calendar a little more quickly, I'm quite happy to present what I'm calling the General Amnesty. (The idea actually comes to you courtesy of campylobacter, who suggested it to me.) You can think of this as sort of an "unfilled prompts" drive, but, instead of only covering the most recent Porn Battle (note this link to that amnesty post, still active), you get the entire field of prompts from previous Battles. So! If you had something you always wanted to fill, but never had time to fill before, well, here's your chance."

Features links to all the prompts of all the last Porn Battles.

*rubs paws* Yesssssssssssssss.
