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!

In Pokemon Black today, I was battling the Elite Four (I'm really slow, okay?). My Liepard, Sherlock, fainted and I went into a bit of a panic because I only had one pokemon left, and the Bouffalant I was battling still had over half HP left.

At this point, I brought out John, my Herdier, who used Retaliate and got a critical hit, thus all at once KOing the Bouffalant, allowing me to beat the Elite Four and avenging Sherlock's death.

Guys, Sherlock/John. Even my pokemon ship it.

I'VE FINISHED ALL MY EXAMS NOW. :D

Anyone know why I can't track any threads?

It let's me track the whole kinkmeme, but not individual comment threads.

Does that happen to everyone or just me?

Here's what it does:

Just wanted to let you all know they've started posting fic and art at the
holmestice exchange thingy. They're posting between 2 and 4 per day, so lots of good stuff to choose from (and it seems to be mostly BBC 'verse, with a bit of canon and '09 thrown in).

That's A Shit Load Of Bakelite!

I was poking around Ebay avoiding work I should be doing.

I came across this in the vintage jewelry section.

Photobucket

Holy moly!

That's enough to open a bakelite emporium!

The seller's reason for selling is sad. Ill-health. I can relate and my heart goes out to you, unknown Bakelite amasser.

"1000 PCS OF MIXED BAKELITE MOSTLY, LUCITE, CELLULOID, AND MANY MORE OLD PLASTIC,THERE ARE A STONE ARE TWO MISSING IN 2 OR THREE BRACELETS, NO JUNK!!!!!! I USED TO SELL AT SHOWS ECT. I HAD STROKE AND 2 BRAIN SURGERY'S, CANNOT HANDLE IT ANYMORE, HEALTH WISE, TYPING IS HARD ,SO CAN'T DO A GREAT DETAIL, BUT WILL BE MORE THAN GLAD TO ANSWER QUESTIONS,ALL IS NOT PICTURED, THANKS"

Added a few days ago...

"you are getting more than pictured!!! everybody so close!!!!! and never saw anything with over 100 watchers, this has been a very interesting experience, started packing it yesterday and still packing today, will mail out within 24 hours of payment, I promise this is a deal of a lifetime, yes I 've cried a few times seeing it all go but like i said just can 't do it anymore, thank you all so much!"

If you're an interested vintage jewelry fan like me there's more photographs of this awe inspiring collection under the lj-cut at my livejournal.

I'm watching a show right now where the bad guy has just been discovered to be Sebastian Wilkes. Small world. :D

I am in great pain and want to take many pain killers and get very drunk but I have to be responsible so I can't.

Not a great help but I'd be happy to do it for you.

Soundtrack for Sherlock?

(Anonymous)
I'm not very active in the fandom apart from this meme, so I don't know if there has been any news on releasing a soundtrack for Sherlock. Have they already done one, or if not, are they planning to before airing the second season? Because currently I'm reduced to rewatching some scenes solely for the background music.

Re: Soundtrack for Sherlock?

It's not been released, but there is a petition going around to get it done...

http://www.petitionspot.com/petitions/ReleaseSherlockMusic

:)

Hypothetical question.

If John and Sherlock were in a fight, who'd win? In this scenario, there are no weapons and both aren't afraid to fight dirty.

I think John would probably win from experience and whatnot, but Sherlock wouldn't be above taking cheap shots. Hmm.

Thoughts on this?

(What about Sherlock vs. Lestrade or John vs. Lestrade?)

Oh man. This is so hard.

TBH my instinct would be to say Sherlock would win. John is probably more objectively skilled, but I feel like Sherlock would have plenty of experience from over the years, and his superior height and reach would win out.

I know tiny girls with black belts who could destroy a large man, but from my experience with martial arts, when there's a roughly even match the greater reach is a huge advantage. SORRY JOHN.

THIRD SEASON, BABY!

(Anonymous)
"And Moffat must complete another series of Sherlock in 2012, meaning the BBC may split the Doctor Who episodes between 2012 and 2013.

What, you honestly thought they would end the entire series on a motherfrickin' cliffhanger?

XD

Re: THIRD SEASON, BABY!

(Anonymous)
Is anyone surprised? lol

I want to know what stories they'll be doing (besides the obvious) but we probably won't find that out until next year...

Tell me your bra stories! (For FICTION!)

(Anonymous)
Yes. So there's this post in Part XVI, and it's hilarious and cracky and I want to fill it.

But I am of limited experience with the bra shopping, having gone through the buy-expensive-frilly-ones stage and then decided that, meh, £3.75 ones from the supermarket would do.

Tell me your horror stories, people! That I may offer catharsis (and lulz) through fiction!

good or not good

I could use some input regarding a social situation and transgenderism.

I was in the local really huge store, so huge the customers help each other out rather than trying to find a staff member, which makes it like a big co-op treasure hunt. I was looking at something on sale that I'd bought previously but needed more of, and a woman and her friend came along and debated purchasing the same item instead of something cheaper. I noticed that the woman was very early into her transition.

In many ways this is a very small town. I can imagine she hasn't been having an easy time, and she was a bit skittish as people walked past. As for myself, I have some social anxiety. I don't normally talk to people in the store and have in past on bad days fled the store rather than deal with people talking to me. Today was an okay day, and I knew something about the product, and I really didn't want to be anti-social to this woman in particular.

So I voluntarily launched into extolling my experiences with the product line, its durability, price comparison, ease of cleaning and so on, while mainly keeping eye contact with the woman, and less with her friend. I don't know whether that might have seemed creepy, but I didn't want her to think I was avoiding looking at her. It felt awkward, but any time I open my mouth it feels awkward.

There was a conversation, in the end they both said thanks, we each picked up the product and went our separate ways.

I wanted to tell the woman she looked fabulous, and her shoes were fantastic. I wanted to say I admired her for being herself. I wanted to offer to beat the crap out of anyone who gave her a hard time. I think I might have freaked her out just with the eye contact though.

I honestly don't know if my behaviour was good or not good in the situation. Does anyone have any input?

Re: good or not good

(Anonymous)
Well, I mean, what are you reading from their body language in response to your conversation? In general: I'm not a very social or chatty person, so I'm not big on the whole talking to random strangers thing. Very occasionally, conversations do work out if we find a topic/product of mutual interest.

I think complimenting outfit/shoes is fine. But I would kind of feel condescended to if you offered to beat the crap out of anyone who gave me a hard time. Maybe someone in a rougher place might appreciate the kind words and outside support. Seems risky if you can't get a handle on her personality though.

To the owners of vaginas...

I have got a yeast infection. Lucky me! Has anyone had to deal with one of these? What's the best over the counter medication? Is there a home remedy? I need to get this over with!

Ugh, my heart goes out to you, anon, yeast infections are the worst! I had one while I was sitting my A-Levels which was the result of getting drunk, snogging one of my friends, him giving me a throat infection which I had to take antibiotics for and then the antibiotics giving me a yeast infection. /coolstorybro

I used one of the over-the-counter pill and cream duo medications, but the best thing for it was natural yoghurt, seriously. Smear it on an incontinence pad or a big sanitary towel and you're golden.

Hope it clears up soon! <3
