This is a place for all sorts of off-topic discussion.

You can post anon or un-anon, per your personal preference, as usual.

All I ask is that you stay civil and (hopefully) friendly.

If you also want to use this thread to try to find a beta for a fic, or ask a brit-pick-ish question, I think that would be an acceptable use. Have fun!

Just re-watched ASIP

Every time I watch the cabbie, Sherlock, pill I'm struck at how wide apart Sherlock/Cumberbatch's eyes are.

They don't appear that way in any other scenes. Lighting? Make up?

It's disconcerting.




Re: Just re-watched ASIP

Looks normal to me (one eye-width in between.)

Need some upbeat fic recs

Christ, was this weekend horrifying. I'm an American anon who follows the news as if I were its shadow, and... Jesus. I'm an emotional trainwreck right about now, and I don't even live in Arizona.

(For those unaware: http://thechronicleherald.ca/World/9019302.html )

So... anybody have a link to some feel-good fics? Don't care about particulars (pairing, character, genre). Just need something upbeat.

Re: Need some upbeat fic recs

I heard about that over at RBR. Lemme dig around my files....

You Want Off Topic?

You got it. I bit into the tougher, burnt end of a bread stick last night and cracked my tooth in half.

Its the second top bicuspid, filled years ago by a kiddie dentist.

It's still hanging in there, in the gum, all squirmy. I have a dental appointment first thing tomorrow. Vicodin.

My dentist's biggest suggestion? "Don't wiggle it." JESUS! WHY DID YOU HAVE TO SAY THAT? I'm like Tracy Jordan on 30Rock, "The only thing you can't do now, Tracy, is dog fighting." "...Hmmmm, dog fighting!"

Added bonus, I'm way old and haven't had a loose tooth since I was seven. Despite the sharp pain, the wiggling is oddly familiar and nostalgic. And I've always had reoccurring dreams of loose or losing teeth. (Asked my shrink about this once. "You could be unconsciously worried about losing your physical attractiveness, sexuality as you age...or you may just need to floss more.")

Don't expect any suggestions or sympathy.

Typing this out is just one more thing to do to take my mind off that loose tooth.

This is not precisely BBC, but awhile ago, I remember reading a Victorian verse fic where Watson goes to a whorehouse to hire one of the prostitutes, and it just happens to be Holmes undercover for a case. He doesn't find out until the next day, but the sex was really really hot, there was a blindfold involved, and there was lots of unrequited love/angst. I've asked on the other kinkmeme and looked through the various comms/archives that I have bookmarked, but I can't find it anymore! So, on the off-chance that somebody here has read it as well, help an anon out?

Damn. I read that one, but I´m not sure where. Are you on the holmesslash yahoo mail list? I believe I got the link from a rec there.

I declare this the "WOE IS ME!" Post!

Because my computer with all my WIPs has become unfixably corrupted and won't even boot up. I'm going to have to reformat the harddrive. If I'm lucky I might be able to save some of my files. (I'm on a borrowed computer now). I'll know in 4 hours how much this expensive program was able to pull from my sick, sick drive.

So meme, how's your day been?

Re: I declare this the "WOE IS ME!" Post!

Aww, I'm sorry to hear that. ;_; That's the worst.

Rec me some fics?

I'm sick with some sort of low-grade flu, and both the cats seem to have gotten into something they shouldn't and they're all weird and pukey. The vet says watch and see, so I'm stuck trying to stay awake to keep an eye on them/clean up their vomit/etc., even though I just want to be in bed with a flannel over my eyes.

I'm just looking for something to keep me entertained while I wait this out. It may be a very long night.

I know I've read some good H/C fics in this fandom with one of the characters sort of muddling through something when they really ought to have been in bed (I know there was one where John followed Sherlock out on a case despite being feverish, as an example). Things like that would do wonders for me right now.

So... anyone have any good recs?

Re: Rec me some fics?

I feel like the rec nurse tonight. :)

Sweet, but triggery if you're feeling nauseous: http://sherlockbbc-fic.livejournal.com/2727.html?thread=5942439#t5942439

I hope you've got someone dropping by to look in on you like Sherlock here: http://sherlockbbc-fic.livejournal.com/5564.html?thread=18541500#t18541500

It sounds like now would be the time to call in some favours. :\ Hang tight, anon. Mycroft says you're perfectly entitled to grumble.

So some channel or other was running a Star Trek movie marathon yesterday. And I've never seen slash in the original series, but good grief, I certainly had my eyes opened re the movies yesterday.

Now I can't unsee Sherlock as Spock (obviously), and John H. "Three Continents" Watson as James T. "Three Solar Systems" Kirk, and Lestrade as McCoy--weird sense of humor, bit grumpy, would defend either of them to the death.

You never saw slash on Star Trek? =P

Try this: Gene Rodenberry himself admitted on basing Kirk and Spock on Alexander the Great and Hephaestion. He says the only difference between the relationships is that they never hinted on Kirk and Spock having sex, but "there was certainly enough affection for that, had that been the particular style of the 23rd century".

Also, google "t´hy´la" and "the ship´s closet". xD

The entire story with dinosaurs and Anderson: anon made a joke about it, and somehow it never went away.

I know there was a previous thread for good fic recs, but is there a place for a constant supply? / Anyone have something burning hot and well-written they want to wing my way while I wrestle with a terrible design assignment?

My own tastes are too peculiar for me to make recs that are "good", but if you tell me what sort of objectively definable thing you are looking for (fluff/angst/pairing/fetish/situation) I can tell you what I know is out there.

Twitter fakes

Is anybody following @SherlockSH @WatsonJW and all the lovely profiles affiliated with them? I highly reccomend it. They are very fun, in character and incredibly slashy. Whoever is behind them also ships Mystrade and has made profiles for Poor Yorick(Sherlock´s skull) and Pocky Face (the face Sherlock drew on the wall with the gun). Everytime they´re online the followers are sure to get a few laughs.

Re: Twitter fakes

Haha, they're so in-character, the first time I ran into them I thought they were actually "official" Twitter accounts. They're an absolute scream!

What are some underrated fics, or who are some underrated authors? I feel like leaving loads of comments today.

I may not see a reply before I shuffle off to bed, but what's your fancy in terms of pairings, ratings, and/or general themes/styles?

What's your favorite Guilty Pleasure?

Okay, we are all anon here, so we can be honest, right?

What are your favorite fandom fics that you are too ashamed to rec to others because of the whole "other people have standards" thing.

I've read all the safe recs, I'm looking for the stuff that's fun even though it's not perfect. Maybe it's got lots of spelling errors, or it's kinda perverted in a not quite socially acceptable way, or it'll give me diabetes. You know, the stuff on your delicious that you read and reread, but horde to yourself because "fandom has standards" or some such nonsense.

Re: What's your favorite Guilty Pleasure?

Mine is: http://sherlockbbc-fic.livejournal.com/2262.html?thread=3408598#t3408598 John's being smexed by an incubus that looks like Sherlock. I don't know how many time's I've reread this. It's the hottest thing ever. I don't think I've ever seen it get recced, maybe because of the whole OC thing.

Lulzy moments from other Holmes?

I just had to post this as soon as I saw it - so I just started watching "Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Weapon" - Holmes in 1945 versus Nazis with Basil Rathbone, loving it - and this moment I totally did not expect popped up.

So Holmes comes back to 221B and finds a pair of Watson's gloves left on a table. He picks them up, examines them, then imperiously snorts, "Hm. Dr. Watson's. Very untidy fellow."

Then he up and chucks the gloves at the camera over his shoulder.

I laughed for three straight minutes 'cause I just did NOT see that coming. :D

So, anons and non-anons, share your favorite lulz from other bits of the canons!

Re: Lulzy moments from other Holmes?

Sherlock wrapped in about a million blankets in The Disappearance of Lady Carfax, a Jeremy Brett episode. (Can't remember if it's in Casebook or Return of Sherlock Holmes). He also appears to wear a blanket around the manor house and at one point he takes a random nap in a missing woman's bed. It's sort of ha ha erg, because he's coming down from a pretty obnoxious cocaine high the night before. But the blankets and the whole journey in towards the manor house are pretty hilarious. That and getting to hear Brett say "I should be kicked from here to Charring Cross!" in The Man With The Twisted Lip.

I love Jeremy Brett. I fear he has ruined me for all other Holmes.

Rec me?

Hey there kink meme!

I'm in the mood for some John/Lestrade fluff, any recommendations for me?

Re: Rec me?

5 + 1 fic, Lestrade and John's aborted attempts at going on a date! Five times it gets Sherlock-blocked, and one time it all turned out rather nicely
