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!

I have to vent this somewhere

(Anonymous)
I love/hate the "it get better" project.

I love its purpose and hope to all the gods that are that it keeps GLBT kids from killing themselves.

I hate it because it emphasizes that I'm not a sexual person so there's no-one out there for me.

I'm sure that's not the intention, but all the talk of how everyone met their soulmate and is all happy now makes me want to fucking cry.

Re: I have to vent this somewhere

(Anonymous)
I know how you feel.... I once had a whinge to a lesbian friend of mine who has been happily partnered to an FtM trans sexual for a while. And revealed that her partner was asexual these days and it worked out fine for them

Which sorta made me feel better in that at least it was theoretically possible, but given the circumstances I still felt my chances were minimal.

But it did get me wondering... Is it easier for women than for men to say "nope, not interested in sex?" It being such a part of the public masculinity?

Maybe there are way more guys out there than I think, but they can't say it and have to pretend they are sexual?


What happened to jjgd?

That's what I'm wondering, too. Last I heard jjgd was saying she was very ill and now her journal is deleted? Makes me very worried. Is she okay?

Hesitant and awkward attempt at continuation of meta thread; doubt over number of people who may still find it funny.

Query over where this thread started inspired by a general laziness to look things up.

Superquick Brit Pick Question

(Anonymous)
Do churches and other big old stone buildings in London have small signs on them designating them as fallout shelters? Churches in my area do, or did until recently-- I'm not sure they're still maintained.

Re: Superquick Brit Pick Question

(Anonymous)
This little Brit doesn't live in London so has no idea. Sorry.

Massive TMI headed your way

(Anonymous)
So... since this fandom has a lot of slash and consequent anal sex... have you tried it?

(Mycroft says Volgatia should. You listening, Volgatia? The British Government is propositioning you.)

How's this for TMI?

(Anonymous)
I haven't. My longterm sex partner has a dick so big anal entry would be extra uncomfortable (poor boy only gets external oral sex, too, because it literally doesn't fit in my mouth without teething it), but he doesn't have any interest in anal if he can get p-in-v. We've done some anal play with smaller dildos and fingers, but I have no interest in actual anal sex. I'm pretty much neutral on any anal penetration, I could take it or leave it, but he gets off on it so I go along with it. I did peg my ex with a strap on at his request.

I write anal sex, but I figure I can combine the general idea of g-spot stim and what the dildo feels like and get a workable approximation of the feeling of anal sex with a prostate.

The Rare Pair Rec Thread

John/Sherlock is awesome, but rare pairs need some love, too. So. Rec anything that isn't John/Sherlock, the rarer the better.

Please DO!! rec your own fics. :D

I love you, everyone, have fun. ♥

So I know NaNo was over a month ago

(Anonymous)
but I've spent all my free time divided between reworking my NaNo and posting fills.

As a result, one of my characters (H) is loosely based on Sherlock. (Whenever someone asks me what H looks like, I pull up the screen-shot of BC's confused expression during TGG when Molly runs out of the lab, because that face just IS H for me) Now H isn't Sherlock by any means, because he's even nicer than pilot!Sherlock, but a lot of people's characterization from his POV really influenced him. (Also, much like Sherlock, I intended to make his character asexual, but then another character was introduced and that was it. Now he's demisexual/why do I even bother with labels with this character?)

Anyone else have any similar inspirations?

Re: So I know NaNo was over a month ago

similar-ish yeah; one of the characters in something I'm writing is quite Sherlock-esque, particularaly in terms of appearance and clothes, and intelligence/interaction with people (though my character is also quite a bit nicer than Sherlock, hehe)

I am the most juvenile person ever.

(Anonymous)
So every time I load the delicious page and scroll past this:



I giggle a little, and then wish there were a Molly-pegging-Mycroft fic under that tag.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?

(American anon also obviously American.)

Related: I wish there were more Molly on this meme in any style or pairing.

Re: I am the most juvenile person ever.

(Anonymous)
Just his ass. Not the rest of him. Considering Molly's job, that's a fuckload more disturbing than anything has the right to be. XD

Mycroft says 'soprepped thickest'. Yeah.

liberateourtime's been posting with an icon of Benedict Cumberbatch. I don't want to ask on the meme and take up valuable space, but pleeeeeeeeeeease somebody tell me where to find the picture in that icon I'm going freaking insane looking for it.

Suggestions?

(Anonymous)
What are some awesome ex-boyfriends/girlfriends (could be a crossover, or someone from the show) that you would like to see Sherlock have?

I'm definitely not writing a Scott Pilgrim x-over. No way.

I'm being a lil crazy here, but I looked up BC on Facebook, just to see, y'know.

And wth.

His profile pic is a statue of a gorilla holding a real banana.
WTH?

There's a lot of BC profiles-- does he have a FB under a fake name or something?

Any trans folks out there?

(Anonymous)
This is really off-topic and self-indulgent, but I don't know where else to go. I can't afford therapy, and all my friends are sympathetic but don't know what to say. I think my identity issues have hit a low today -- I honestly don't know who or what I want to be, and I don't know how to deal with these feelings. I'm sure there are people who've worked through these issues before, but I don't know how to do it on my own. I guess, just -- if you feel comfortable letting me PM you, I would really, really appreciate it.

Thanks. ♥

A sister in the LGBT family

(Anonymous)
I'm not trans but I am a lesbian who came out later in life, so I can relate at least a bit to the confusion of not knowing who you are or what you want. I know how frustrating it can be to exist outside a defined area; as much as our community is known for "it's a spectrum!" and "you're the expert on you!" sometimes, you can just want someone to say "you are this, and this entails XYZ"

As for dealing with it, I find it really helpful to at least visit a gaybourhood and spend an afternoon around other people like us. Have you ever been to Pride? It's like bathing in pure love. Are you in university or planning on heading there? Most student centres have counselling resources or have people who can point you at them as a student.

Searching for a story

(Anonymous)
There was a fantastic WIP fill on part 1 about John and Sherlock being kidnapped and kept in separate rooms, where each was led to believe that the other was dead. The comments on that section are maxed out and the story isn't finished...anyone know if it ever got finished, and if so, where it is hiding? It was shaping up to be an awesome, tense story.

Anon has never actually read any ACD...how embarassing

(Anonymous)
Any recs for editions/versions/collections of Sherlock Holmes for the complete and utter n00b?

I know Project Gutenberg (<3) has it online, but I don't have an e-reader, so something physical is what I'm after.

Re: Anon has never actually read any ACD...how embarassing

(Anonymous)
This anon looked into and found it wholly and completely not her taste. YMMV, obviously, but I'm not at all embarrassed about my obliviousness to nearly all things ACD :P

You can get the entire canon in two volumes (about 7 USD ea, or $4 if you live near a Borders and get their incessant email coupons) so might as well just go for the whole thing.
