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!

Any other receptionists/secretaries out there? I could use a bit of commiseration. D:

Out-of-work secretary here. The only thing worse than being a secretary is NOT being a secretary, at this point.

"Dearest Emma"

(Anonymous)
I would like to respectfully request an audiofile of Benedict saying, "Dearest Emma" in "Creation."

Pretty please with honey on top?

So, sexuality. What's that about?

I have no idea. Is there a test?

I was panicing alot when I read that delicious might be shutdown but I just read the page about it and thank the lord this was posted.

Update 2: Delicious just posted the following “What’s Next For Delicious” on its blog:

“No, we are not shutting down Delicious. While we have determined that there is not a strategic fit at Yahoo!, we believe there is a ideal home for Delicious outside of the company where it can be resourced to the level where it can be competitive.”

It seems as though Yahoo has made up its mind this morning that it will sell the property, not close it.

Looks like we can relax a little bit there's still lots of things that can go wrong but it appears the amidiate danger is over.

I'll believe it when they sell it. Which hopefully will be soon.

Things Learned from the Kink Meme

(Anonymous)
Since we're all anonymous here.

From reading the kink meme, I've learned that I give the worst hand-jobs. Fic here has clued me in to certain obvious bits of male physiology, and what I've been doing in the past can't have even been comfortable, never mind pleasant.

Re: Things Learned from the Kink Meme

Did you try asking your partner what he likes? Fanfic isn't always realistic...

WHERE IS THE SHERLOCK/MORIARTY FIC?

I mean, come on, in this version it was basically canon that Moriarty just wants some Sherlock dick. I've only found one good fic for it thus far, and the kinkmeme doesn't seem to be offering much else so far, that I can tell. (I'm not big on noncon - if anything, I think this pairing makes for some good dubcon.)

Naturally, I don't see this pairing as ~twu wuv~ or anything even remotely close to it, but I just need some straight-up PWP of two well-dressed, good-looking, sociopathic men. That's not too much to ask, is it? ;_;

Re: WHERE IS THE SHERLOCK/MORIARTY FIC?

(Anonymous)
I hear you. I want to read it but there isn't much out there. I've got three drafts of different Sherlock/Moriarty stories that I'm waffling on finishing and posting because... well... it's a hard pairing to write well, even PWP.

What counts as good? (Anonymous) Expand
OH GOD NO META ALLOWED

So I've noticed -- in general -- that when the meme makes crossovers/fusions, we have a weird tendency to cast Sherlock in the "female" role and John in the "male" role (since no one ever does crossovers that aren't S/J). I'm guilty of this myself, since I have cast Sherlock as everything from Leeloo to Taylor Swift to Julia from 1984. Maybe there's some kind of ingrained gendered narrative going on in my head which stipulates that since Sherlock is the "prettier" of the two, or because John is more "masculine" or "manly" or "badass," that the roles just slot that way -- which is so downright awful and sexist and non-egalitarian of me.

slk;dfjka;sjf I really don't have an explanation or a coherent analysis of this. I just wanted to put that out there and see what you think.

I wrote an fic (posted anon) that involved 5 fusion/crossovers with Sherlock and John. One was m/m so that doesn't count, but of the 4 het ones Sherlock was the female twice. This was a conscious efforts to switch the female role between the two of them. One of the males Sherlock played often acts in a stereotypically feminine manner though.

I was quite conscious in my own mind that it was easier to slot Sherlock into the female roles - most of which were full of stereotypes; fickle, delicate, subjects of the male gaze. It played on my gender-equality conscience quite a lot, so you're not the only one.

Sometimes I wonder, with all the anons, if this meme is really only like 20 desperate people which hopelessly spam each other with prompts... :D

I post so much that I sometimes wonder this too!

So I'm sure we've all seen this video already, but I don't get the part about the ham. Did Benedict mention loving ham at some point, or is it just a random joke?


I don't get why he has sideburns and a racing stripe down his nose.

Brainstorming!

(Anonymous)
One of the reasons for making a discussion post was for the purpose of brainstorming about prompts. That said, come on hivemind, let's think of as many different possible plots as we can for this prompt:

So, we've had House cross overs where House is Sherlock's dad or both Sherlock and Mycroft's dad...now I want to get really cracky and prompt House as their secret older half brother.

Think about it: House insists his father isn't actually his father, and it's really just as plausible as the boys having a young brother. The ages would probably work out as 51, 41 and 34 respectively and could totally work if Daddy Holmes messed around in his youth before settling down ten years later with a wife and had no idea that he had another kid out there.

Run with it.

Who figures it out? What do they do about it? How awkward is their reunion?

Re: Brainstorming!

(Anonymous)
I would imagine hideously awkward, with plenty of insults and insinuating comments and growing horror and despair from anyone not related yet still present (John, Wilson, etc). And I think they'd all leave with the Holmes brothers well-satisfied and content with their relationships and the accompanying people worried about their sanity/state of the world/thing.

I also think it would be hilarious to read.

(Also: publash lover - that's not a kink I was previously familiar with...)

Dirty dreams, anyone?

(Anonymous)
So, I know Benedict's girlfriend is Olivia Poulet. I've only ever seen her in The Blind Banker and on a photo or two, I know nothing about her, and I had to look her up to spell her name. Now, last night, I dreamed I was talking to her and Benedict, and all the time I had this immensely awkward feeling like I'm the other women. You know what I mean. As the dream goes on, it turns out I'm right, and me and Olivia are shagging like bunnies behind Benedict's back. Now I can't look at the comm's header without feeling slightly weird. WTF? I've read and written loads of porn. I shouldn't be feeling awkward. But I am.

So. Does anyone else ever feel guilty about their porn, dreams or fantasies?

Re: Dirty dreams, anyone?

I don't think you should think about it too much. Your subconscious can do weird stuff. Just two days ago I had a dream Europe would start WWIII cause of the Euro currency crisis so yeah...
Anyhow - I had sexual dream before that were awkward, possibly embarassing... but the nice thing is - they're DREAMS (or fantasies or whatever) and they're all yours. Hell, if you want to shag Olivia Poulet - your head is the PERFECT place to do it cause noone will ever know or particularly care. :D

"DON'T ASK, DON'T TELL" HAS BEEN REPEALED

I AM PRETTY DAMN HAPPY RIGHT NOW, LET ME TELL YOU. (I know this has nothing to do with Sherlock but DADT HAS BEEN REPEALED. OH MY GOD.)

You don't have to be straight to shoot straight.

L.M.A.O.
Yes, it was about time.
