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!

Sherlock Holmes Daddy Issues?

(Anonymous)
Where and when did the fanon or shall I say kanon (Not canon, I don't think. It's been a few years since I've read the novels and stories.) began that Sherlock and his father had a fractious relationship?

Not only is it omnipresent in fan fiction but it's alluded to in many pastiches as well.

Did it start from that Baring-Gould 'biography' in written in 1962, "Sherlock Holmes Of Baker Street: A Life Of The World's First Consulting Detective?" Earlier that that?

I have to admit, something about Sherlock screams, 'Daddy Issues,' but I'm not sure why?

Re: Sherlock Holmes Daddy Issues?

(Anonymous)
Just my two cents: I'm not really involved in any other Holmes fandom, but in BBC!fandom, it seems like Sherlock has mummy issues rather than daddy issues. I've read quite a few stories (and wrote a few others) where he had a wonderful relationship with his father and there was something about the mother that affected Sherlock. I think that came from the "Mummy line" in BBC!canon.

Of course, maybe the daddy issue is prevalent and I've missed it. Not the first time something like that's happened to me.

Someone just tried to sell me drugs (probably)

(Anonymous)
Some guy just walked up to me in front of my apartment and asked if I wanted two dimes. I think he was trying to sell me drugs. I'm surprised the lingo hasn't changed in the past ten years, but can't think what else he could have meant.

Someone thinks I'm a drug addict (probably).

(Anonymous)
I found some spare change on the ground and offered to this nice looking person I saw as I started home. They gave me the strangest look and made it clear in no uncertain terms that they didn't want my coins. I went ahead and threw it in my bean pot when I got home, but it didn't even occur to me until now - dimes! I asked if they wanted "two dimes." What else could they have thought that I meant?

LOL'd in RL.

WIN. +1

I'd run with it and mention in the author's comment that I realized too late how it actually looks like.

Favourite Porn Links

(Anonymous)
A few people have pointed out a lot of fanfic is fairly unrealistic when it comes to the sex part. Which porn sites would you recommend to writers looking for a clue?

Is Pop Rocks

(Anonymous)
(popping candy) sold in the UK? I can find references to a similar sweet called Space Dust, but only on retro sites. Do you call it something else?

Re: Is Pop Rocks

(Anonymous)
No, we don't have it here - Space Dust is similar but as you say it's only available in places that sell sweets no longer made in the UK.

Dear kinkmeme,

I've been completely mesmerized by this video for the past few days, and thought it only fair to share with the rest of you in case you haven't seen it before.


oh god...

IT'S HERE

Where is everyone getting their characterization for Moran? I know we have the basics about his career and skills, but he seems to be characterized so similarly across this meme, Tumblr, and various RPs that I wonder if we're not tapping into some sort of fannish hivemind, or if someone fleshed out his character first so everyone ran with that?

In ACD canon he's described as old, gin blossomed and cranky. Like Colonel McBragg from the cartoons.

How did he change into an urbane, witty, handsome lover?

Brit Pick question

(Anonymous)
I'm looking for information on cigarette brands.
Specifically, could someone give me a couple of brands of really strong cigarettes that are readily available in the UK? Also, are there any brands that are generally considered cheap and/or kind of gross? And if you were going to splurge on some really quality cigarettes, what would you buy?

I don't smoke, and I'm not British, so my apologies if these are dumb questions.




Re: Brit Pick question

(Anonymous)
I smoke, I'm British, I guess I can be of some help :D

I suppose you are looking for something like Marlboro Red,Benson and Hedges Gold or Embassy. Those would be the expensive ones (£7-ish a pack). You've got Mayfair, Lambert and Butler, and Richmound which are mid priced (£6-ish a pack).

The really cheap ones would be something like Sterling or Pall Mall (about £5.50 a pack)

To be honest with the recent Duty increases on cigarettes it's not cheap to smoke. Most people who are after cheap cigarettes have started on roll ups. This is where you buy the tobacco, papers and filters separately and roll them yourself. Popular brands are Golden Virginia and Drum for the tobacco, Rizla for the paper and Swan filters.

If I feel like a splurge I normally get Marlboro Menthol.

On a random note I always think of Sherlock smoking Embassy. I think this is due to my tall, dark haired crush smoking them XD Lestrade I always pictured being a Lambert and Butler man.

"and ratend". Sorry, Mycroft. There are no brands called 'Ratend' but thank for your input.

a) John Watson has been doing our weekly shop, or
b) John Watson has died and my Grandmother is possessed by his spirit

Because: there are now six jars of jam in our kitchen cupboard.

I've seen a lot of Hogwarts fic, but I'm just wondering how much public school/boarding school (maybe even state school, if Mummy Holmes would allow it) fic there is out there? It seems like such an obvious road to go down but I've not actually seen much of it. Or maybe I'm just wondering in the wrong circles.

*wandering, even.

Prompt recs?

(Anonymous)
I love how some of the prompts on this meme are enjoyable as hell on their own, even without being filled.

Favourite prompts anyone? Filled or unfilled.

I still don't think my fill matches the hotness of this prompt (which Mycroft informs me he is going to sing; how nice of him):

Sex itself is great, but stroking a hand through Sherlock's hair, down his cheek and lingering on the collar around his neck? Using only a thumb to part Sherlock's lips so he can slide his cock right back into his mouth? That's John's favourite part.

Well. That and those pretty noises Sherlock makes when they use the riding crop.

TMI Blowjob question

(Anonymous)
Those on the giving end: do you generally prefer with or without condom? Are there STI concerns if you forego the condom?

Re: TMI Blowjob question

If it is someone I know to be DDF, I prefer sans condom. I'm allergic to latex and the non latex condoms taste AWFUL. If it is a new partner or their status with drugs/disease are uncertain, I always use a condom and just deal with the taste of the thing or I forgo the oral sex until testing status is proven negative.
