the refuge from nowhere

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.

11:46 am - Some Yuletide Delishyness

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!
