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

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!

11:33 am - Never Change Fandom, Oh Wait You Didn't ...

Love how much easier it is for Sherlock fans to accept Watson as a RODENT than as a woman, ala Basil of Baker Street.

Your slash goggles — they’re cutting the blood off to your brain, okay? The White Cock version of Holmes and Watson is not an endangered species nor will it be anytime soon.

Lucy Liu will be a FANTASTIC Watson. (A better Holmes, actually, but we can't have everything.)

I plan on watching the shit out of this show, especially because I'm thinking that with Liu on board it will be free of the scummy racism rampant in BBC's "Sherlock" which, after the horror of "The Blind Banker" I'd rather claw my eyes out than ever watch again.

At least one can hope.

I just can't ... THE CUTE IS SO, SO CUTE.

the case of the baker street nursemaids... )

This might be THE ALMOST BEST HOLMES ever. Except for the part where this Watson isn't as hot as Jude Law. (Yeah, my shallow is shallow.) But OMG the Holmes is hot.

I can't wait to see the rest. ::: prepares to mainline :::

01:24 pm - Sherlock Holmes - 1954 TV Series

Watching Ronald Howard/HM Crawford "Sherlock Holmes" series (1954).

Howard's Holmes is lovely, crazy-handsome and elegant, while this Watson is half-Jam!Watson, half BAMF!Watson ala JL. OMG, so much awesome, including ...

Highlights include )

And those are like two eps ...

They're adorable together. This Holmes just *loves* Watson -- in that mischievous way -- and this Watson is crazy exasperated but completely devoted to him. He's like the Missing Link between Bruce!Watson and Law!Watson.

Also, I realized that what Holmes 'invents' in "A Study in Scarlet" is Luminol. You go, fictional genius!

04:53 pm - Stuff ...

WATSON DESTROYS ALL HUMANS. During "Jeopardy", that is.

Yeah, I'm just amused at the name. Duh.


I play Farmville, like a few billion other folks. And I can't get Horse Breeding to work for me as the Snow Stallion (hi-ho, The Snow Stallion) is glitchy.


Fuck it. I'll breed Disco Cows instead.


I OWE PROPHETKRISTY A DEE/GAETA FIC. I suck. Sorry, PK! It's coming!


Posted my 33rd fic at [profile] worththewounds promptmeme (ALL H/W, ALL '09, ALL THE TIME \o/) and we've decided that we'll have some kind of wild party when the fic count reaches 100. (We're at 86 fics on the meme now, which is insane for a closed community of a dozen, about five of which write and one awesome artist.)

It's nice for me personally to have a very quiet, no-wank place I can avoid the BBC version after that rancid second episode gave me the DNW face of all DNW faces. I've never turned from "Squee!" to "WTAF? GET IT AWAY FROM ME!" so fast in all my days of TV watching. Never. OY.


I wonder how I can change the 'default' icons on my unpaid Dreamwidth list, after I uploaded a whole bunch and then decided not to pay for the service anymore. I supposed I have to delete all the ones I don't want, eh?

Meh. I wish I could just choose which I want to be 'saved' as usable during my unpaid times. Because I might pay again, maybe.

Okay, back to decorating, working and writing more fic (and prompts) for the fic meme at [profile] worththewounds.

01:17 pm - Another Set Picture - OMG

Another set pic from the Sherlock Holmes 2 movie. Spoilery in a clothing sense, I guess.



I'm also amusing myself by reading Ravelry "UGH" listings, which are descriptions of knitted projects that have gone horribly wrong. Love this one for a sock mishap ...

"If I find someone with a size 5, fat foot - I have a sock for them. Until then, I’m not going to make the second one…"

He confuses me. Sexually. Especially that part right above his belt that ... never mind.

BTW, I wrote a fill for some horny pregnant Girl!Holmes here. Man, that was fun to write. I have to get me to writing more het porn again. LOTS AND LOTS.

01:30 pm - Yes, It's That Scarf

Help-Pakistan fic delivered. \o/.

If only Red Heart would deliver MY STUPID YARN so I can start on my Scarf of Hotitude as worn by JL!Watson in the SH2 pics beneath the cut.


I'm also debating *gasp* knitting it instead of crocheting it, as this is a new skill I've developed thanks to YouTube and myself waiting for MY STUPID YARN to arrive. I'm ace at a straight knit stitch but hate purling like most novice knitters do, I'm sure.

Also I lose and gain and tangle stitches along the way, but it seems to matter slightly less in the matter of scarves.

Or I can just hdcrochet the entire business and have my scarf in a day or two versus by the time the movie premieres. Decisions, decisions.

It's all moot anyway. Because I don't have MY STUPID YARN yet.

10:58 am - \O/

STEPHEN FRY WILL BE MYCROFT IN SH2 which basically says that everything is on track and UTTERLY AWESOME for the sequel because THEY KNOW WHAT WE LIKE AND WANT AND ARE MORE THAN WILLING TO GIVE IT TO US.

Also, that young lady from The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo movie (which isn't out yet?) will be in it and I'm SO HOPING SHE PLAYS AN AWESOME VILLIANESS because she looks like a gorgeous badass and Moriarty needs a cruel'n'cool dark lady by his side.

I will never get over how RDJ (and Mrs. RDJ, a producer) are all: "Fan service? WHY YES, HOW MAY WE SERVICE YOU?" And Ritchie too. I love fun-loving fellow fans in charge of stuff instead of producers with sticks up their asses.

Songs of Spring by w.a.i.d

In a post-retirement world where Holmes and Watson are NOT living apart, but occasionally have a serious squabble, The Lion's Mane turns into a beautiful love letter to a hurting Watson.

I keep shaking this fic hoping more will fall out, but alas, I must be content with my imagination.

The BBC is on the verge of ordering a full second series of "Sherlock" says Digital Spy.

Bad news? It'll take a year to produce.
