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!

Another Brit-Pick question inspired by the above Brit-Pick question

(Anonymous)
Do individual serving community service actually where orange jumpsuits (like in Misfits) or is that just artistic licence?

Re: Another Brit-Pick question inspired by the above Brit-Pick question

(Anonymous)
No, afraid not. Some councils make them wear orange bibs but it often leads to young people being the target of bullying and hate campaigns. Scottish Conservatives have called for uniforms to be introduced in Scotland but there is a lot of resistance to that.

Unlike Misfits people don't serve long sentences this way either, they are often just 24 hours over a couple of days.

Bleating plea for S/L

(Anonymous)
Meme, beautiful meme! Darling meme! Look at all these magnificent S/L prompts! Black silk negligees! Motorcycle rides! Happy S/L! Genderswap and trans! Ghost romances! Jealousy trips over young Dimmock! Dub-con and non-con! H/C! All, all unfilled yet!

Authors, wonderful authors, won't you make the best of the current freeze and give our lads a chance?

Kinkmeme is educational!

(Anonymous)
I've just realised that writing prompts for this kinkmeme and doing a TL:DR for them half the time has made me much less daunted by having to write a story summary for my own fic!

Re: Kinkmeme is educational!

(Anonymous)
Me too!

...still fail at titling though.

The thread above on the different kinds of pie has, besides making me hungrier than I was, made me curious. Nanaimo bars. How popular are they outside of Canada? I mean, I know they exist in the States because I've seen them, but I'm fairly sure they're not as popular there as they are here (or am I wrong?).

I have no idea why my mind latched onto Nanaimo bars.

i'm from the usa (hey, neighbor!) and haven't seen them before. i'd really like to try one now, though. D8

speaking of delicious bar/cookie things, do you guys have scotcharoos? :x

please excuse me as i make myself hungrier and hungrier.

This Scene From 'The Great Game'

(Anonymous)
~PHONE RINGS~

Sherlock: "Hello?"

Bomber Victim Voice: "The clue's in the name - Janus Cars."

Sherlock: "Why would you be giving me a clue?"

Bomber Victim Voice: "Why does anyone do anything? Because I'm bored. We were made for each other, Sherlock."

Sherlock: "Then talk to me in your own voice."

Bomber Victim Voice: "Patience."


Does anyone else think that when Sherlock replies, "Then talk to me in your own voice" he looks positively titillated, aroused, giddy and beguiled?

Oh, yes. Sherlock was so flirting back. ♥

Weirdly sad sketch

First pies, now jelly!

Hallo, Brits of the meme, here is something that I've idly wondered about for a while. I know what you-all call "jelly" is a moulded gelatin dessert, so what would you call a fruit spread that is fruit juice mixed with pectin and goes on toast? Not jam, not preserves, not marmalade, not curd. Basically, a semi-stiff spread with no bits of fruit or peel, and no egg, just juice and gelling agent. Is this even a thing? Or is it all just jam to John?

Ettiquitte question

(Anonymous)
I haven't needed to curtsy to anyone since I was 15 but I got into an argument with a friend about this recently: Is it right leg behind left or left leg behind right?

Re: Ettiquitte question

(Anonymous)
From ancient Girl Guide practice for Royal nd Government visits, it was right foot directly behind left, toe of right foot touching the ground, lift skirt out to sides (not too far, Girl Guide skirts were short!), bend forward knee and dip.

Pink phone

(Anonymous)
Can anyone tell me the make and model of the pink phone in TGG? Also, did it seem/is it correct that there was a zoom feature to use on the pics that were taken with it? Thanks!

I think it would have been a first generation iPhone (oh so cleverly renamed the mePhone in ASiP :P). Don't know about the camera features, but in general on an iPhone you can just use your fingers to expand and zoom a screen (pic or text).

Re: Pink phone (Anonymous) Expand
Where is a good community for original fiction? Not just for posting OF, but also for getting a beta?

Asking because I trust word of mouth over Google. :)

A random Brit-picking thought

(Anonymous)
I've been considering a crossover with an American show.
Now, if I set the story from the American characters' point of view, Americanisms should be perfectly fine, yeah? I'd really only need to Brit-pick the Sherlock characters' speech.
Whereas, if I was using the Sherlock characters' point of view, it'd be more appropriate to Brit-pick everything.

...I kind of want to take the easier route, but somehow the plot is calling for John to be my protagonist...

Re: A random Brit-picking thought

(Anonymous)
Yes - American POV means no Brit-picking but for Brit characters' dialogue. I tried to read a story with American characters (their POV) set in London and there were Britishisms all over the place - which was annoying and unnecessary. Made even more annoying and unnecessary by the fact that the author was actually American.

Magical Realism Prompts

(Anonymous)
Meme, care to help a sister out? I'd love to fill some magical realism prompts (you know the sort - Sherlock is a changeling, John can hear hearts, Mycroft has wings etc), so, are there any prompts like this that any of you particularly want to see a fill for? I'm also open to fantasy prompts and if there's a crossover that seems fitting then I'll see what I can do! All I ask is no Good Omens requests/spoilers - I'm halfway through reading it for the first time. :)

Cheers folks!

London question

(Anonymous)
I need some info on London traffic for a fic, so I thought I'd throw this out to the meme-mind.

According to google maps, it would take approx. 23 minutes to get from Battersea around the power station to Baker St. (along Sloane St., Park Ln., Gloucester Pl. route). I'm assuming it would take longer than that in rush hour. Any idea how much time I should add to the trip?

Thanks!



Oh - should probably add - afternoon rush hour not morning, as that impacts traffic flow direction. :-)

I think I've found the female Sherlock.

Basically, she's bipolar and temperamental, and very childish in a stubborn, pouting, way. Musically talented, but unfortunately her parents never allowed her to learn playing the violin. She's a grammar nazi in three languages - our own, English and French, and quite socially awkward of the "bit not good" kind.

If that wasn't enough, she's frightfully intelligent, but has a tendency to delete all information that she's not interested in. For example, she doesn't understand math, chemistry or biology, but if you dare to mix schizophrenia with dissociative disorder, she'll verbally punch you in the face.

She's also, for some reason, very enlightened when it comes to law and murder statistics... And I'm quite sure she's either gay or asexual. Oh, and if that isn't enough, she's got a very usual surname, and a quite unusual first name. Not as rare as Sherlock, mind you, but very rare for our country, at least.

I visited her when she was ill from influenza today, and found her smoking in her backyard. She looked absolutely dreadful, and I asked her what on earth she was doing outside if she was so bloody ill, to which she replied:

"My nose always starts bleeding heavily when I'm this kind of sick - I wanted to see what kind of effect nicotine would have after such a large amount of blood loss."

I am now considering whether or not I should try to bring her to a crime scene, though her indifference when it comes to chemistry, etc, suggests that she probably wouldn't do a very good job.

Which brings me to my question. I can't help but to wonder what more I could test to see if she's more like Sherlock, but I haven't really watched any other series or read the books - hard to come by in this country, you see. Any suggestions?

Sorry for the long post, and if I'm posting this in the wrong place or something, but I couldn't think of anywhere else to put it.

tl;dr: I think I've found the female version of Sherlock, and I'm looking to test just how alike they are. I need suggestions, though.

Watch the series with her instead of trying to evaluate her as a fictional character, then tell her she reminds you of Sherlock?

Mycroft says 'nonsly Decision' so I think he's advocating honesty and forthrightness.
