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!

Brit Picky questions

Tele or telly?

Hoovering is vacuuming I know. But it's not capitalized despite it's proper noun origin right? Mrs. Hudson doesn't hoover.

Would a generic non Hoover brand vacuum be called a hoover? The hoover is in the corner (even if it's some other brand?

Telly (spoken, I don't think someone would normally write that, aside from anything else, TV's shorter!)

A Hoover and a vacuum cleaner are pretty much the same thing as far as I am concerned and you can use either one. And they can both be verbs, I think. The vacuum cleaner/Hoover's in the cupboard under the stairs (through Mrs Hudson may not have one of those). Brand doesn't matter. I have never seen an actual Hoover branded Hoover in my life, but use the word often to refer to Hoovers. That sentence was confusing, did you understand me?

I NEED IT, I WANT IT, I'VE GOT TO HAVE IT

(Anonymous)

Does anyone know where I can download/watch the episode commentary? I am so so so interested in that sort of thing, but I can't find anything at my usual sources.

I think one of the links in here should work? I hope?

I just posted a response to a response to an anti Mystrade secret on F!S (yeah, yeah, I know) and profoundly disappointed that there was no Captcha. The kink meme and our ways are corrupting the way I interact with the rest of the internet.

Eladden betrothal - apparently he's preparing to pop the question on a flying carpet.

Sorry, what's F!S?

The thought that some of the casts might drop out in the next season makes me shudder! It didn't occur to me until I read the post asking if Rupert Graves is going to play Lestrade next season. I wanted to say, 'Hey, of course he will. What made you think thst?' Then I realized anything is possible. If He is not available next year, then they will just replace him with Gregson or even Dimmock! OMG.
No... This is absolutely unacceptable. He better be in the next season as well. I need the Silver Fox in my life.

This thought has just made me cry!

The case of this missing prompt :(

(Anonymous)
I've lost my prompt! I found it, copied it to my computer, wrote a fic for it and then promptly forgot which page it was from :( Can anyone remember where this is from so I can fill it?!?!?


It goes something like this -

I had a dream were Mycroft locks Sherlock up in a room, well more like a suite with a study filled with books and a state of the art computer and he has cases from police departments from around the world brought to him so he won't get bored. He also hired someone to do all the legwork for Sherlock and Sherlock can view everything this person see and comunicate and direct them via computer sort of like in that movie "The Bone Collector" except Sherlock is not a quadriplegic. Everything he can ever want is brought to him, people can visit him. There is only one thing he can't have and that's his freedom. He is constantly monitored and guarded-

I haz a tin-hat!

(Anonymous)
ACD!Canon gets slashier every day. I've been reading Sherlock Holmes stories for decades. I never saw them as a couple. However, I'd now be willing to swear that ACD intended them to be closeted, possibly unrequited lovers, but couldn't show it outright due to the attitudes of the times in which the stories were written, and that Watson's marriages were all misdirection.

I'm totally with you on that.

Anyone here watch the show Boy meets Girl? It has Martin Freeman in it, which is what makes me curious. That and genderswitch which is one of my bigger kinks. But I can't find anything on the show, whether it was good or bad. Which probably means it sucked.

I found a place where I could download for a few bucks, but if it sucks that badly, I'm not sure I want to pay for it.

Why don't you just torrent it or something?

Xover?

(Anonymous)
So, about a week ago I had the habit of falling asleep after reading both Star Trek and Sherlock fanfiction. Well, my mind decided that Sherlock and Spock MUST meet. And who could argue? Please, I ask that this happens. I don't really care how, so long as it makes a little bit of sense.

BONUS POINTS of you can manage for Sherlock to admit to himself that he totally has a crush on Spock's logic.

Re: Xover?

(Anonymous)
Did you mean to post this in the chatter post? It's fine, but it looks like you might have intended it as a prompt. :)

Well, I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas. You guys are awesome fellow fangirls and boys, and I hope Mycroft Claus brings you everything you want. :D

Same to you! :)

Sherlockbbc-fic: The musical!

So, I got bored and decided to make a musical about the meme. Here's the opening song: (yes, it's from Little Mermaid; I'm not good enough to write a new song.) It would be awesome if other people did these so we had a whole musical!

Part of that meme

ANON
Look at this fic
Isn't it neat?
Wouldn't you think my bookmarks are complete?
Wouldn't you think I'm the girl
The girl who has every kink?
Look at this fill
Med!fet galore
All of the commenters screaming for MOAR!
Looking around here you think
Sure, she's got every kink...
I've got dubcon and necro a-plenty
I've got AUs and crackfic galore
You want crossovers?
I've got twenty!
But who cares?
No big deal
I want more

I wanna be where the memers are
I wanna see, wanna see them writing
Writing about honey come and dinos and … guns!

Posting just prompts, you don't get too far
Fills are required for laughing, crying,
Running away to your - what's that place again?
Bunk!

Where they all rant, where they all chat,
Where they don't shoot Mycroft in his fat
Full of such squee – I'm gonna be
Part of that meme

I stumbled upon this meme from the comm, now I'm addicted.
I love the thrill of seeing a fill based on my prompt.
Memers are kind enough to help find
Fics when I'm behind on the filled post
And Mycaptcha is in rapture
Of the hivemind

I need to read up on Holmes canon,
Page mods my questions and get some answers
What's with Moran and who's this – what's her name?
Irene?

I'll be porn queen!
I'll show the meme my fics above NC-17!
You cannot unsee.
I'm gonna be
Part of that meme.

Re: Sherlockbbc-fic: The musical!

Where they don't shoot Mycroft in his fat

is STILL my favorite. LOVELOVELOVELOVE. This whole thing is absolutely brilliant. <3

let's play a game (no not that kind of game)

(Anonymous)
Let's play the post a snippet from one of your WIPs game (I'll start~)

--

Sherlock waves him closer, but John doesn't move. “John,” he says, cupping one of his breasts. “You have more experience with naked women. Do these look small to you?” They seemed small to him, each breast fitting easily in one of his hands, but he couldn't be sure.

Sherlock?”

“Yes, obviously. Well?”

“You're -- you're a girl. Since when are you a girl?”

Re: let's play a game (no not that kind of game)

(Anonymous)
I got bored with it, couldn't find a direction I wanted to take it:

It took two nights on Sarah’s lilo and a desperately worried voicemail message from Mrs. Hudson to convince John to return home to Baker Street. If he was quite honest with himself, he wasn’t angry about the fight anymore, just too proud to admit that he shouldn’t have overreacted like that. Alright, so it was annoying to come home to find eleven dead and dying goldfish in his bed but he probably should have taken a deep calming breath before yanking the sheets off the bed, stomping downstairs to the couch, and throwing them on Sherlock as he slept.

Who here is from the Bay Area/North California? Palo Alto reporting in.

Concord/Pleasant Hill right over here man, what up.

Hey Guys. I have a question. How to put an image in a comment that shows up as an image not as a link? Everytime i try put a image use <img src=.. it turns into a link instead of actually showing up as an image in the comment. Any idea?;_; please enlighten this poor soul.

You need the image code for websites. Things like Photobucket or Tinypic have a few options. It should be the website one but try a few in the preview comments before hitting post.

I'm only 27, this can't be happening!!

I can't get my mom's computer to play White Christmas on itunes so I'm hiding out here, pretending to do research on how to fix it while my dad runs out to the convenience store to see if they have a copy. FML.

I'm 26, and yet...

(Anonymous)
So I am not the only one who thinks that iTunes was made by Apple specifically to mock me/us?

Filler anons (and non-anons) what annoys you when you write?

For me? Having sections 1, 3, 4 and 5 done and being happy with them and having no idea how to get from section 1 to 3. Sigh.

Re: Frustration is:

(Anonymous)
When I see a brilliant prompt, that makes me imagine a whole long story, but all I can write is a short-just-bit-longer-than-mini fill.

Also, when I write a story, and after I've posted it, I remember a scene or a line that I wanted to include but forgot to.

Oh, and when I want to include a line that seems to fit perfectly, but then I remember I read it in a story written by someone else.

My inability to type is a constant source of pain, too :-p
