Well, I'm Kha0s_Absolute, but I use Secret-H more often.
I read. A lot. I write a little. I'm a pretty good drawer, but not so good with the technological side.

I got into Sherlock, half because of the Movies, and half because I tend to read stories about books/shows/movies/games, that I've never actually read/watched/played.

A prompt hmm...
John & Sherlock, Mycroft/John Omega!verse---Mycroft is one of the most powerful the most powerful Alphas in Europe, Sherlock is a beta that no one wants, and John is an omega that kept it hidden solely to join the army.
Sherlock gets hurt, so Mycroft and John indulge in some comfort sex. Unfortunately, John ends up knocked up and enlist Sherlock’s help to keep it a secret, because if Mycroft is so over protective about his hateful little brother, there is no way John would be leaving whatever isolated mansion/facility Mycroft would spirit him off to if he found out John was baring his children.
Not necessarily a dark!verse, but omegas, no matter what sex, are the only ones who can have kids, which makes society very over protected of them. I guess their a little misogynistic-ish.

I have awesome ideas, but no skillful outlet.

I'm more of a John fan than a Sherlock fan, but I like a lot of fandoms, from different medias.

Along with the generic pairings, I also have some that I don't know why I like them.

That's all I got.

Edited at 2012-03-16 01:46 am (UTC)

I like that you didn't mindlessly conform to the suggestive layout of the questionnaire (like I did). And of course, Mycroft/John and omega!verse is always a good idea. I really shouldn't like the omega!verse stuff, but I do.

Friends?

Name/nickname: Mandy.
Age: 33.
Location: East Texas.
How you got into Sherlock: I'd meant to watch it for ages, but seeing all my friends squeeing over how perfect it was sort of lit a fire in me and I finished all the episode within the last week/week & a half. And now I'm hooked beyond belief.
Other adaptations you enjoy: I've never actually seen and/or read any other adaptations. I'm not even sure I want to. How do you improve on perfection?
Favourite Sherlock character(s)/pairing(s): Sherlock, John, Sherlock/John. Yeah, I could just watch those two all day.
A prompt you'd like to see filled: I love good text fic and I've read some lovely ones in this fandom. I'd love to see them come to terms with their feelings for each other via texts over a certain number of days apart and then come back together and you know. Get together. ;)
Favourite episode and why: I can't pick a favorite. No possible way. There are moments in all of them -- yes, even that horrid one that I adore.

How you got into Sherlock: i kept seeing it all over my friendslist, but it wasn't until an irl friend demanded for me to watch it it that i finally got around to it last summer. and the rest is benedict cumberbatch's chins history.
Other adaptations you enjoy: i actually only recently got around to reading the acd books, just finish the sign of four yesterday! and i love both rdj and jude law so fan of the movies too. *__* but fandom wise, sherlock bbc all the way.
Favourite Sherlock character(s)/pairing(s): i kind of love molly a lot. i think mycroft is a fantastic character. huge fan of john. sherlock is a dick but i love him anyway. i'm sure i'm missing people! and as for pairings, i stick mostly with john/sherlock.
A prompt you'd like to see filled: i should really browse the kinkmeme more because i can't but i could see this escalating into a really hilarious fic. :D also there was this prompt about peter guillam disguising himself as sherlock to flush out moriarty and how the fall was the conclusion of this particular assignment but peter/sherlock not expecting to fall in love with john and DOES ANYBODY HAVE A LINK TO THIS BEAUTIFUL PROMPT THAT I HAVE LOST?
Favourite episode and why: REICHENBACH. because it made me cry and i don't cry at anything lol.
Things you enjoy in fics: good writing. believable characterization. bonus if it's plotty and action packed. :D
Other fandoms: hbo war fandoms (band of brothers, the pacific, generation kill), the eagle, inception, durarara, & white collar are fandoms i've written for. i've lurked in countless others though--my interests range from parks & rec to breaking bad to pokemon.
Non-fandom interests: i'd really like to learn how to cook better aaaa, but i absolutely suck at it. i also like walking around in beautiful weather and settling on a bench in a park with a book. oh and science. so much science.
Five random facts about you: 1. i am a pretend graduate student working in an immunology/epigenetics lab and my lj consists of a lot of whining about that, 2. i have elbows that hyperextend and sometimes when i catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror while stretching, i get weirded out by the hyperextension, 3. the more i learn, the more i realize i don't know anything, 4. i have performed cpr on a real person, 5. miike snow's new album is currently the love of my life.

Name: Spurandsaddle (deindae in other places)

Age: 21

Location: Massachusetts, not Boston the other side (yes there is things in Mass besides Boston)

How you got into Sherlock: I read the books when I was 7-9. Last summer I had surgery and was stuck in bed all summer. It was on Netflix.

Other Adaptions: I really Enjoyed the RDJ movies. I felt like it updated Sherlock Holmes in making us feel a bit like the victorians would have felt about it. Gave it that little bit of racy edge that they original stories had that became quaint.

Other Fandoms: LoTR; DCUniverse; Classical History (I will write that Iliad cross over one day!); Avatar:Last Airbender; Star Trek (all of them); X-men; Star Wars; Dr.Who; Torchwood; Firefly; Harry Potter; Way to many other random ones to count.

I tend to write short stories, and only really post them to memes. Usually anon.

Name/nickname: Fern
Age: 21
Location: Seattle originally, Missoula for school.
How you got into Sherlock: I was already a Whovian, and a fan of both Moffatt and Gatiss's writing. Then my fandom buddies started going on about this new "Sherlock" thing, and I started making grabby hands.
Other adaptations you enjoy: I have to admit, I haven't really explored the other adaptations much, though I plan to eventually. I'm working on the stories right now and enjoying them; I thought the Guy Ritchie films were cracky popcorn fun; and I was pretty obsessed with the first few seasons of House, which I think should totally count.
Favourite Sherlock character(s)/pairing(s): ALL OF THEM. I mean, I love Sherlock/John as much as the next kid, but my approach to fandom generally involves loving all the characters and shipping everyone with everyone else. If you write it well, I will totally read it.
A prompt you'd like to see filled: I'd like to see more fics that explore Donovan in an interesting way. She gets demonized a lot, and while I totally get why Sherlock finds her irritating, she's pretty obviously competent and doing her job.
Favourite episode and why: Probably Reichenbach. It's so exquisitely crafted. Plus, Molly gets to be awesome, and I'm a sucker for that.
Things you enjoy in fics: It depends on the type of fic, really. I love a clever plot, for instance, but I'm not going to hold the lack of one against something that's obviously meant to be a vignette. That said: good dialogue, thoughtful characterization, no character-bashing. If there's sex, I appreciate it when things don't always go perfectly and characters have to negotiate what works and what doesn't. Not that I'm against a good PWP by any means, though. :D
Other fandoms: Doctor Who, Torchwood, Homestuck, The Mighty Boosh, Harry Potter, Whedonverse, probably some I'm forgetting.
Non-fandom interests: Social justice, music of all sorts, reading, writing, being outdoors, swearing like a sailor, being a giant queer, crafting, learning all kinds of shit.
Five random facts about you: 1) I play quidditch. 2) I also play the violin. 3) As a result, whenever I go to quidditch practice I have to stop myself from calling it "quidditch rehearsal." 4) I can't decide if I want to marry Rachel Maddow or be her. 5) I'm taking a human sexuality class right now. It's kind of the best thing ever.
Something you'd like to do this year: Finish writing a story.
Anything else: I has a tumblr!

Ahhh, so jealous of your quidditch playing! That is awesome. Also, I took human sexuality a few semesters ago. It is definitely the best thing ever.

How you got into Sherlock: Fan of ACD canon then I got sucked into series one while laid up post partum and here I am...
Other adaptations you enjoy: Prety much all of them but I have yet to see the Russian version lol.
Favourite Sherlock character(s)/pairing(s): Sherlock/John, Molly/Lestrade, Molly/Mycroft, Molly/Lestrade/Mycroft
A prompt you'd like to see filled: LOL any of mine, several D/s ones and most molly-centric ones.
Favourite episode and why:ASiP for the initial meeting, as above mentioned, and also TRF mainly for Freeman's opening scene.
Things you enjoy in fics: strong plot and consistent characterization... Also love love love character backstory (when done well) and *ahem* good smut.
Other fandoms: SyFy's "Alice," "Primeval," Being Human, Doctor Who
Non-fandom interests: Belly dancing, reading, museum hopping esp with my kiddo, writing (someone actually published me IRL...weird, lol)
Five random facts about you: Belly dancer, writer IRL, can touch my tongue to my nose,I have a master's degree, and I'm a bisexual polyamorous pagan geek

Hi, where in AZ? I'm in Safford.

(Deleted comment)
Name/nickname: Steph
Age: I'll be 26 in about 2 1/2 weeks :D
Location: London, UK
How you got into Sherlock: Obsessed with Sherlock Holmes since I was about 9/10, joined the Sherlock Holmes Society as soon as I moved to London when I was 18. Was very excited/scared when they announced 'Sherlock' and am very glad that it turned out to be awesome :D
Other adaptations you enjoy: Big fan of the Russian!Holmes series - I think Vasily Livanov is tied with Clive Merrison as my favourite Holmes. I really enjoyed 'The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes' when I first saw it when I was about 12 and I have soft spot for Nigel Bruce's Watson (I maintain that the best on screen version of 'The Musgrave Ritual' was done by Bruce/Rathbone).
Favourite Sherlock character(s)/pairing(s): Without a question, Mycroft :) I don't have a favourite pairing, Anthea/Molly makes me happy.
A prompt you'd like to see filled: Oh. Er... I prompted that Moriarty was an actor and that it was all a test of Mycroft's loyalty. Sherlock worked it out but couldn't tell Mycroft. Following Sherlock's 'death', all is revealed and his loyalty is 100% without question. Sherlock returns and they work together to bring down Mycroft's 'masters'.
Favourite episode and why: oooh...tie between 'A Study in Pink' and 'Scandal in Belgravia' - I like the way they made the update work and I really liked Irene Adler (no I do not think she was working for Moriarty, remember, he's a consulting criminal...she consulted him). I also like the interplay between everyone in those stories, particularly between Mycroft & Sherlock.
Things you enjoy in fics: I quite like 'normality', you know, every day stuff...and humour. A character trying their best to have a cup of coffee whilst everything around them is trying to stop them having that five minute sit down...that sort of thing :))
Other fandoms: Not particularly active in but I've written some 'Grey's Anatomy' fanfic (my guilty pleasure :P) and I'm a huge fan of 'The Thick of It'.
Non-fandom interests: Theatre, photography, guinea pigs, films, gaming
Five random facts about you: I've had tea at the House of Lords, been to tea & a show at the Magic Circle, worked with Michael Crawford, I used to live off Baker Street...er....I once walked from the Lyceum Theatre to Upper Norwood with my friend following the route in SIGN using 19th century maps.
Something you'd like to do this year: finally pull it together and submit something to the Sherlock Holmes Society Journal. Oh, and lose weight but to be honest, I'm with Mycroft on this - I detest legwork :P
Anything else: I talk about my job a bit on my journal, which I understand is quite boring but I promise it's not all boring...honest :)

Hi! I remember your prompt, I think it could turn into a really interesting story. I hope it gets a fill. :)

I loved Irene, too, and "Scandal" is also one of my favourite episodes. :D

I once walked from the Lyceum Theatre to Upper Norwood with my friend following the route in SIGN using 19th century maps.

That is totally awesome.

We seem to have a few interest and friends in common, so - wanna be friends?

Name/nickname: Rose
Age: 22
Location: Essex
How you got into Sherlock: A lot of my friends kept telling me to watch it after they saw the first episode. I watched the Blind Banker and was sort of; "Meh...this isn't for me." Then last December I decided to give it another go because I was on a bit of a Sherlock Holmes fix after watching the Guy Ritchie movie and Great Mouse Detective. Ten minutes into the first episode and I was in love.
Other adaptations you enjoy: Granada, Guy Ritchie, ACD!Canon, Great Mouse Detective and I am a little curious about Elementary, I have to admit.
Favourite Sherlock character(s)/pairing(s): Sherlock/John are my platonic OTP. I also like Lestrade/Molly and Jim/Seb.
A prompt you'd like to see filled: There was a prompt I remember seeing a while back that was about the whole "It's all a dream" trope except both Sherlock and John were hallucinating but they sort of made up this world together. And it turns out John is being tortured in Afghanistan and Sherlock is still a junkie but when they 'wake up' they find each other even though they haven't really met (or so everyone thinks).
Favourite episode and why: A Study In Pink. Because so many other Holmes/Watson adaptations I've seen usually have their relationship pre-established like Granada, Guy Ritchie, Basil Rothebone etc. While I love those versions of the characters as well, this Sherlock and John are the most precious to me because we get to see them meet and how they made each other happy when they were both so alone before.
Things you enjoy in fics: Hurt/comfort is my kink with an equal emphasis on both. In that order. I'm a bit of a sadist, I like to see a character brought to breaking point and then I love seeing them be put back together. I can never just leave them broken, I'm not that evil. :P I also love humour. I don't have many sexual kinks but when I do it depends on the pairing.
Other fandoms: Doctor Who, Supernatural, Misfits, Mass Effect, Ouran High School Host Club, Being Human, Star Wars, Red Dwarf, Black Books (some of these aren't fandoms, just other shows I like).
Non-fandom interests: Gaming, I have an 360 and a Wii. Jobseeking and my volunteer work takes up the rest of my time at the moment.
Five random facts about you: 5"5. An Essex girl who doesn't wear fake tan. Agnostic (sort of spiritualist). I can instantly know a quote from any episode of the Simpsons pre-1999. My first same-sex crush was one of the women who used to host Nickelodeon back when it was that sort of channel (I was 11).
Something you'd like to do this year: Get a decent job. Move out, preferably to London near my friends.
Anything else: Not much. I'm a bit of a loner but I do like to get to know people if they're willing to put up with me. Outside of fic, I'm more into vidding and if anyone wants to check out my channel on YouTube it's RoseNoir90. Shameless self-plugging is shameless.

Re: Mad Woman in the middle of the desert looking to make new friends

Favourite Sherlock character(s)/pairing(s): I've always loved Molly, and have recently become quite fond of Jim.
A prompt you'd like to see filled: I have such a hard time keeping up with this meme any more. I don't even know what's out there.

A prompt you'd like to see filled:
The prompt where Moriarty brainwashes either Mycroft or Sherlock into obsessively thinking about getting it on with the other one. It would be sooo messed up.
http://sherlockbbc-fic.livejournal.com/17487.html?thread=102071119#t102071119
Favourite episode and why: This one's hard. I'm going to go with ASiP. ASiB could have rivaled it for me up until about 20 minutes before the end, when it got a bit silly for me.
Things you enjoy in fics: It varies a lot. I like gen casefics. I like what-if-one-event-happened-differently AUs. I like stories that address how a pairing got together in the first place. For PWP, I like power games.

It's so nice to see other crazy cat ladies around! :-D

Name/nickname: verucasalt123
Age: 39
Location: Marietta, Georgia
How you got into Sherlock: peer pressure from fabularasa
Favourite Sherlock character(s)/pairing(s):John/Sherlock, Mycroft/Lestrade
A prompt you'd like to see filled: John getting all bossy on Sherlock and Sherlock responding accordingly.
Favourite episode and why: Hounds. Because of the scene where Watson says "That's an order, Corporal".
Things you enjoy in fics: First times, schmoop, any kind of dominance/submission, filth.
Other fandoms: Supernatural, Angel, Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Non-fandom interests: neurology, insights into medical and psychological disorders, SyFy Original Motion Pictures.
Five random facts about you: 1) I am a single mom with two kids. 2) I've only been reading/writing fanfiction for less than a year. 3) I was raised in the deep South of the United States and have a really obnoxiously pronounced southern accent. 4) Once I was a prostitute. 5) I got married VERY young.
Something you'd like to do this year: Find a job that I don't hate.
Anything else: Sherlock fandom is amazing, I find myself very hesitant to write anything substantial because I am intimidated by the stories I read by much more talented authors.

Well, we're already new friends, but I figured I should mention that I have a really obnoxiously pronounced Southern accent, too. :)

Name/nickname: Lyss
Age: 18 (I think I'm the youngest person on this page...bit depressing, really.)
Location: West Florida, near Tampa
How you got into Sherlock: Loved Moffat's work with Doctor Who, friend was raving about it, it all went downhill from there.
Other adaptations you enjoy: Granada! Who doesn't?
Favourite Sherlock character(s)/pairing(s): John/Sherlock, like everyone else on the freaking planet. Uh...I'm a fan of Mystrade, as well. Favorite character would have to be Molly, because she does remind me a lot of myself, sadly.
A prompt you'd like to see filled: A bunch, but none that I can think of off the top of my head. There was an Artemis Fowl/Sherlock crossover that I'd just like to see for the lulz, even though I wasn't a *huge* fan of the Artemis Fowl series.
Favourite episode and why: A Study In Pink. I love watching pilots of series to see how the director introduces us to characters. Plus the whole plot was pretty awesome, and A Study In Scarlet was the first Holmes story I ever read.
Things you enjoy in fics: Er...fluff, after/before sex things, omegaverse without knotting/mpreg (i.e. hormones, bonding, stuff like that).
Other fandoms: Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Star Trek, Harry Potter.
Non-fandom interests: PC gaming, marine biology, animals in general, steampunk, geeky things, cooking.
Five random facts about you:
-I'm in college, majoring in marine biology.

-I'm on a maritime search and rescue team that takes up 65% of my time.

-Coffee, alcohol, pot, and other drugs don't affect me, or they take more than the usual amount. (This proved interesting when I got my wisdom teeth out-- the doctors IV sedated me with five times the normal amount of drugs, and I still woke up during surgery!) I do have to be careful with alcohol though, as it still affects my liver and stuff but I don't show any real major symptoms. (Obviously this isn't a major problem as I don't drink.)

-I'm asexual, but not aromantic.
-I'd like to think I'm an Amy Pond or a River Song but really I'm more of a Molly Hooper.
Something you'd like to do this year: Finish this Young Wizards/Sherlock fusion. Also finish my first year of college and not have a nervous breakdown.
Anything else: I don't use LJ much. Pretty much I just use the kinkmeme and that's it. I do have a tumblr though-- message me if you want the url.

Hey, I'm way older than you (33), but alcohol doesn't affect me, either. Haven't tried pot. And I just about have to mainline caffeine -- I'm talking 12+ cans of DP and 5 or so cups of strong coffee a day to feel a good buzz. I had 5 shots of Morphine when I came out of one of my surgeries and tbh, I probably could have passed a driving test while taking the SATs. Heh.

Anyway, it's just so nice to find someone else who isn't affected by this stuff! Always makes me feel a bit boring. ;)

Name/nickname: Dani, or Makhsi
Age: 26
Location: Denver, CO
How you got into Sherlock: I idolized Moffat as a writer thanks to his work in Doctor Who. I heard about this other show he did and wanted to see it, but it wasn't until my partner got me the season 1 DVD for this past winter solstice that I actually saw it. I was immediately hooked.
Other adaptations you enjoy: Haven't seen very many, I'm afraid. I did like Guy Ritchie's adaptation enough to buy a copy of the DVD, which is a serious rarity for me.
Favourite Sherlock character(s)/pairing(s): I rather love all of them, this isn't exactly a fair question! ;)
Favourite episode and why: Scandal in Belgravia! It hit all the right emotional buttons for me, and I loved the development of the dynamic between Sherlock and John. Plus Irene is a BAMF. And there was further depiction of Mycroft and Sherlock relationship dynamics which is a favorite of mine.
Things you enjoy in fics: Angst. Torture fic. Hurt/comfort. Asexual!Sherlock. Romantic friendship between Sherlock and John. Brotherly interactions between Mycroft and Sherlock. Exploration of Sherlock's addictive behavior and addictions. More hurt/comfort (it's seriously a narrative kink). Bamf!John. Various configurations of BDSM interactions between Sherlock and John (hey, I favor asexual!Sherlock, but I enjoy indulging in porny slash sometimes too).
Other fandoms: I'm a much more casual part of other fandoms. Doctor Who, Jacqueline Carey's Kushiel novels, and Buffy, I think. By "fandom" here, I mean I watch it/read it avidly, think about it, and read some fanfic. Sherlock is the first time I've gotten seriously into fandom since high school.
Non-fandom interests: Psychology! Roleplaying (I LARP, as in medieval fantasy costumes in the mountains for a weekend with padded sticks for swords geekery). Egyptology. Exploring myth (ancient and modern, including fiction as myth) as an integral part of existance/spirituality/tool for personal development (okay, that's maybe less of a hobby and more of a spirituality thing). Just starting to get into baking (still a newbie but enjoying it).
Five random facts about you: Sometimes my hair is blue. I don't identify as gendered. I'm left handed. I'm going to grad school this fall for transpersonal counseling psychology. I worked as a mental health worker in a youth treatment facility for 2.5 years.
Something you'd like to do this year: P90X. Mostly because my current workout routine is boring me, and I think it would be intense but a serious accomplishment, and I think I actually will be capable of it by summer.
Anything else: This is my fandom journal, so anything I post is going to be more fandom related than anything... I made it to avoid flooding my personal journal's friends list with Sherlock flailing.

denver is seriously my heart and home and overall just the best city in the world. <3 i love all of your academic interests and would love to know your thoughts on myth as a tool for personal development! do you use it in your counseling?

and p90x--massive kudos to you for taking that on. i joined my friends for all of one session (the aerobics one i think) and it was just too intense for me haha.

Oh hi there fellow Malaysian Chinese with English as a first language! I'm from Kay-Hell (blasted traffic!).

Where was there a prompt on sciency things? I like those too, and if I spot one I like, I might fill it for kicks. I like HP too and books and reading are my lifelong obsession. A rather desultory letter writer though, but I can do emails! :D

Age: 27

Location: London

How you got into Sherlock: Friend forced me to watch it XD

Other adaptations you enjoy: I liked a Game of Shadows

Favourite Sherlock character(s)/pairing(s): Johnlock always, I could RP some Moriarty/Sherlock maybe, if someone was a really good Moriarty

A prompt you'd like to see filled: I usually write them if I like them >> but I was impressed by the one with John having a PTSD attack after some verbal abuse, or the one where John gets attacked and everyone thinks it was Sherlock, I think that with the right amount of angst and some fluff and happy ending, they could be epic to read... don't know if I'll ever come around to write them though.

Favourite episode and why: Episode 1 is my favorite... I think it is the best when talking about script, case, wit, characters depth... fell in love with John right there.

Things you enjoy in fics: Romance, first-kiss or first time, happy ending, angst with a purpose, films or fairy tales retelling... I just love love XD

Five random facts about you:
I am an English teacher
I speak Japanese and used to live in Japan
I write a lot when I am obsessed by something

I am very honest and straightforward

Something you'd like to do this year:
Visit Japan again
Get rich? XD

Anything else:
I really need friends >_< especially in the London area, none of my friends who live here at the moment care much about Sherlock >_<
Also RP people who like the same things as me would be cool~~ from anywhere~~

Johnlock always
fairy tales retelling
Merlin, Supernatural, Harry Potter, Doctor Who
RP people

Friends? :D
