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!

Mycroft dirty talk

I'm planning to write a fic featuring Mycroft, and I'm super nervous about writing him. Can anybody link me to some awesome Mycroft characterization/dialogue, especially dirty talk (all pairings are fine, but I'd rather not read noncon (dubcon is fine) or deathfic)? I want to make it believable, but not too clinical/boring/weird/unhot.

And anyway, dirty talk is hot, Mycroft is hot, do I really need an excuse? ;) Thanks in advance!

Re: Mycroft dirty talk

Honestly the best Mycroft dirty talk I have ever seen was random_nexus' ACD canon Mycroft. He spoke French. (This is even more impressive as I'm not particularly into French as a language.) Just.... nyaaaaaaa~~


Yo meme,

you remind me of the babe.

Ok, so for absolute ages I have wanted an icon of John with John "Three Continents" Watson on it. Anybody know where I can find one/willing to make one?

As I sit and twiddle my thumbs

thinking of what fic to read or maybe start the two prompt fills that have been tug of war-ing in my head for the past three days.

Hmm, what to do, what to do...

Watson~ on Jeopardy

I know this is only slightly related, but it did manage to create a few prompts back when it was first announced.
So, IBM has made an artificial intelligence, named Watson ( :D ) and they're going to pit it against the top two reigning Jeopardy champions. It's gonna be on American tv February 14-16.

IDK, I think it's really cool.

Also, it's tempting me to write more prompts, but I shouldn't waste space, especially when I know they've been prompted before. So I chatter here instead.

New method of self-gratification

No, not wanking.

I just realised that on the delicious, it shows who else has bookmarked your fills, and what they tagged it as. (This is probably not big news for anyone else.) And yes, I've just looked up all my fills to see how many have bookmarked them/how they've described them.

One of my stories has been summarised as "fluffy d/s porn", which I find amusing, and another has been tagged with Donovan. (That made me scratch my head a bit, because I don't even remember putting her in the story.)

Have any of you ever seen your work described/tagged in an unexpected way?

Mycroft says, "lystorts journal." So, it seems that he's been writing this secret dream of his in his journal for years.

Confused Anon Asks:

There's a joke here I'm not getting:

"Someone accidentally obvious-direct-object."

The verb is deliberately missing. Is there a specific verb one is supposed to insert here? Where does this joke come from and what is it I'm missing? I see this all over the place, and it's been driving me crazy.

So Stateside, people (kids, teenagers mostly but I've known adults to use the terminology) sometimes use the baseball analogy of "bases" to refer to sexual progress within a (sometimes very transient lol) relationship:

First Base=kissing
Second=Feeling up above the waist
Third=Fondling below the waist (sometimes oral is put in this category)
Home/homerun: Uh, yeah, obvious lol.

Is there a British equivalent in colloquialisms? If, say, one was writing a fic involving teenaged John bragging to his mates about progress with a girl...

Re: Brit-pick: Bases

Teenagers do use first base/second base/third base/homerun (or fourth base which I've heard before) and the meanings for each are fluid.

But we like euphemisms a lot over here, anything can be one if you try hard enough. /nudge nudge wink wink

In my rational mind, I think that Sherlock is most likely asexual.

And somehow, he's still my fandom bicycle. I want to see him with everyone, everywhere, all the time. Wtf, brain? Can't you put some rational thought into your porn preferences? It's annoying.

Cabin pressure xovers?

I'm sure there must be some..but I can't seem to find any. Help??

small and tapered, like a baby carrot

I know Benedict Cumberbatch is not really Sherlock.

They don't even look alike!

But these blog reviews of 'Frankenstein' mentioning BC's nude stage romp and smallish cock are killing the erotic Sherlock vibe for me. I just posted a prompt based on this to try and recaptcha (See what I did there?) that loving feeling.


Especially this one! (It is hilarious though.)


On with the trouser snake review: I know the rubbish they tell men to make them feel better - that willies are all sorts of sizes when flaccid, but tend to grow to a fairly standard length and girth when erect - but even if this were true, clearly it is still preferable to have a big One-Eyed Nightcrawler even when flaccid. Unfortunately, Benedict Cumberbatch's organ is not big. It isn't even medium. I'm afraid it is small and tapered, like a baby carrot. To make matters worse, his buttocks are surprisingly curved and fleshy, like a woman's.

Re: small and tapered, like a baby carrot

Awww, but it would be so cute! And you could cuddle it and pet it and kiss it and make it grow.

My mum thinks Cumberbatch is what Simon Amstell would look like if someone ate his soul.

Someone help me unsee this, please.

Re: :/

Simon Amstell has no soul to eat. And bears no resemblance whatsoever to the frumious Cumbersnatch.

How did all the Americans get here?

Not that I mind or anything, but... was Sherlock shown on BBC America? Did someone reference it on American radio? Is it just one of the wonders of the internet that Americans will flock to British fandoms?


Good luck! Just remember: Penis doesn't go in the ear! Unless it's crack!fic or some anon's weird kink. :P
