Dear Sherlock fandom:

I fucking love you today.

Most sincerely,


(Seriously though, I thought I'd be able to be strong and hold off on reading spoilers for at least forty-eight hours. This is the state of mind also known as: you are being completely delusional.

But the episode looks really fucking exciting, and I can't wait for Christmas vacation — both a Narnia-inspired DW Special and Scandal in Belgravia within a week of each other. It's like Moffat is trying to whack us over the head with ALL THE AMAZING.)

I am very thankful that I am very good at resisting temptation. But omg, can't wait at all WE'RE GETTING AWESOME FOR CHRISTMAS.

Is there a gif from the DW trailer where the widow(?) is saying "Best Christmas ever"? Because there needs to be. He's doing it on purpose. Of course he is.

You're stronger than I am, bb. I went from a state of let's keep calm and wait for the airing date to one of ALL THE SPOILERS within the space of about ten minutes. :D

There probably is, and if there isn't yet, there will be before the Special, I bet. I'll keep an eye out for it.

I am going to avoid spoilers if it kills me.

Good luck with that, babe.

I don't feel particularly bad about being spoiled beforehand for Scandal, if only because there's still two episodes we will know nothing about until they air, so — I don't mind knowing some stuff about the first. The temptation is delicious.

Hahah, I've only followed people on Tumblr that are spoiler-free and am pretty much not looking at the kink meme prompts until after it airs in London. Gonna try doing that BBC iPlayer thing to see it on the same day, if possible. :|b

Tumblr has a lot of things to say. I'm trying to parse them out. Mostly, though, I'm just massively excited — the spoiler page on the meme is my favourite place at the moment. o/

Wondering if I shouldn't try that, too. Surely I can wait for a download the next day — I suppose.

Yeeaaaah, not checking out the Sherlock tag if I value my spoiler-free zone. I usually don't care, cuz I love spoilers, but I wanna see how much of a difference it'll make in my viewing if I don't know some of the tweaks and twists the show does.

I'm looking at this to see if I can watch it on the same day as everyone else. o/

Date: 2011-12-09 11:05 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] falling-voices.livejournal.com
That's pretty much what I'll do with the other two episodes. Remaining firmly spoiler-free for these. except for, like, trailers. oh man, trailers!

Yeah, I was looking at that this morning, looks like a great idea! It'll help that I'm only one hour away from the London timezone, yyyup.

Well, it stands to reason we'll get at least one before the season airs. The fandom went batshit over ten seconds of reel last time; I wonder how it'll be coping with two minutes or so.

For what it's worth, I can tell you this: everything I've read is definitely worth waiting for. I don't really mind being spoiled — it's like. drinks! before dinner. or something. — but I certainly understand not wanting to know anything yet.

... if you do give in, though, I hope you know that the Spoiler Page over at [livejournal.com profile] sherlockbbc_fic is the place to go. ♥

Is this s2lou?
Because I was on 221B-rec and I came across "falling_voices" and froze and thought, no way, it can't be, isn't that ra-chan?

The world feels precariously small at the moment.

Now I'm going to hit you over the head for introducing me to Sherlock in the first place.

Date: 2011-12-11 01:33 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] falling-voices.livejournal.com
Yes I am. Or was. Or whatever. But! hi! it's been ages! ♥

I'd say I'm sorry for dragging you into this, but then again I'm very much not. Sherlock is an amazing fandom to be in. Incidentally, I'm not certain how, precisely, I did introduce you to it in the first place, so. I feel but little guilt. :D

Well it was partially lJ's fault.

I finally made an lJ to follow another fandom's community when I started seeing Sherlock everywhere. Then I thought about you telling me about it and suddenly I was torrenting it and obsessing over it. Snowballed from there.

(What is it with me and detective shows??)

God it's great to chat with you again. How have you been.

Date: 2011-12-12 06:27 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] falling-voices.livejournal.com
I take all the blame, then, gladly. I rather love that we first bonded over what is basically Sherlock Holmes fanfiction, and now find ourselves similarly interested in what is basically another Sherlock Holmes fanfiction. :D

I'm fine! busy with uni, mostly, and mainly dividing my online time between the Sherlock and The Social Network fandoms, now. Writing. Still. How about you, is the real, important question — where have you been all this time?

Date: 2011-12-12 11:40 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] ristza.livejournal.com
I have the nagging suspicion I'll never truly escape from Sherlock-ish fandoms. I'm just a sucker for detective tales, and Sherlock Holmes is just the quintessential detective tale.

Ohh how's uni? What did you study again?

Been good in many ways, bad in others, but much more emotionally stable then... oh, say, two years ago. Haha. Hopefully the teenage angst has passed, and I won't have to deal with it again until mid-life crisis hits.

I found a new OTP after Kaiao, Kakairu, which posessed me for a good part of a year. Sherlock was just supposed to distract me a bit but it's doing it's job too well.

Before that I drew quite a bit, then everything I wanted to do creative wise ran dry. I haven't drawn in two months now I think, but now I'm trying--trying being the operative word here--to start writing again. Baby steps, really. You know how I am about my writing, hesitant and unsure. Still planning to do that plotty Conan and Aoko fic from ages ago, and now it's going to be all Sherlocky overtones (Aoko has evolved into this gun toting kick ass BAMF keibu in my head... which is what I always thought she'd grow up as, but now she's going to be a sidekick while doing it.)

Ohhh tell me what you've been writing. I'm always excited about your work <3

& I'll be honest. I've never watched the social network. ;;

English Lit. Shakespeare, mostly, this year, with a Hitchcock side-dish for the semester. It's good fun.

I'm. Glad to hear that. Really, I am. ♥

I have no bloody idea what Kakairu is, though. I never smushed pairing names in DCMK fandom; it was always initials with me. Also, cheers for Sherlock being distracting! it distracted me a year and a half ago and then never stopped. I'm glad you're finding your writing mojo back; I'll be interested in plotty DCMK!fic, though — oooh man, I haven't been over there in ages. Months. Perhaps a year. (Also: Aoko has always been a BAMF. There was never any question about this. So go gun toting sidekicks! they are generally the best.)

Um. Um. What I have been writing, or what I'm writing now — I seem to recall you stumbling onto ToNC a while back, and there was a strange, vaguely gory magical realism!fic a few weeks ago. I'm currently struggling with an inversed!post-Reichenbach story, mostly because writing Sherlock's POV is ... complex, and I'm cheating by using photography for all and any means. I'm playing around with a John!centric roadtrip and a Doctor Who crossover by the time season2 rolls around, but I'll have to wait until I've seen The Fall until I can actually get around to properly writing them. /tl;dr.

Oooooh, it's good. Also the fandom is lovely, and the writers rather fantastic at what they do. It's definitely worth looking into, if you're so interested.

stealthily friending you, btw. in case.

Sounds fun omg. I don't think I'd ever survive English as a major, but then I'm in no shape to go to Uni just yet (remember those years where I skipped school? Yeah bit me in the ass with marks and now I have to do some extra years, oops.)

♥ I do have to say sorry for making you guys deal with me back then though.

Kakairu is Kakashi x Iruka from er, Naruto. Yeah Naruto is something else I'm never escaping, apparently. It's definitely OTP but I can't do a thing for it. I can't write, goodness.

When I first watched it a few months ago I was like, "Oh this is nice." Then I promptly forgot about it. Always happens to me, apparently, because when the obsession comes it comes and punches the air out of my lungs. You know how I'm pairing focused, and how picky I am about my pairings?--it's worse with slash pairings, because I'm a fright when it comes to who tops, so apparently I'm in the minority because John is my love muffin in the fandom and I just want to find stories where he bottoms--don't care who tops btw--and it's so hard.

Het pairings are so easy to deal with. //sighs

Mhmmm it's a KID-gets-murdered-except-maybe-he-wasn't-and-17yrold-Conan-and-Aoko-teams-up-to-find-him. IDK if it'll ever happen, but I spend a lot of time thinking about it.

Please omg that sounds exciting. You have a fic journal right? Mind linking me to a masterpost?

I'm avoiding anything with Reichenbach--I don't want spoilers--so I can be happy and watch it and enjoy everything. I saw one of the photos once and smashed my face against my laptop in anger--which I shouldn't, because then it'll have to be replaced, and I still remember your soy sauce incident, incidentally.

Omg Doctor Who. I'm trying to watch this--I've torrented the first season--but for some reason I can't. Can I skip a couple of seasons? But then I feel like I'm cheating. Bah!

Then I'll download it when my internet comes back up. Your recs haven't failed me yet, lol. <3

omg pressuring me to post! n_n

Aw, man. Good luck with that. ):

's alright, bb. ♥

There was top/bottom wank over at [livejournal.com profile] sherlockbbc_fic, amusingly — people from both sides arguing there wasn't enough fic to their liking; but I'm rather surprised you can't find much bottom!John. Here, if you're interested in reading the discussion: there might be some recs amongst that mess. Then again, you might be one of those anons out there, in which case disregard, and also LOL. I'm mostly on the butbutbutswitching! side of the argument, anyway, and I rarely ever write full-blown penetrative sex (frotting&handjobs, yo), so the question rarely registers.

Mmm. Well, let me know if it ever happens, yeah?

I had a fic journal — that is to say, it still exists, but I've switched back to posting Sherlock!fic on this one. A masterpost is sadly non-existent at this moment, though I think I do have enough fic on LJ by now to make one; I should probably get around to that soon. The magical realism fic is here, though, so.

This one Reichenbach fic isn't spoilery — it's a reenactment of the original story, really, the roles being reversed. I'm terrible at keeping away from spoilers, but I am careful at not letting myself spoil others. :D (lololoman the soy sauce incident. still ridiculous, that. it's my own personal noodle incident, which kinda rocks.)

Re: Doctor Who, actually, unless by the first season you mean the first Classic Who season (which I doubt), you're already skipping the first 27 seasons. If you can't get into the season you've torrented, which I assume is the one dating back to 2005, you might want to start with s5, which sort of reboots the franchise (again). It's hardly cheating. (I should know — I started with s4.)

Re: TSN, it doesn't help that the main fanon pairing/main canon relationship is basically Holmes&Watson that at some point goes terribly, horribly wrong. It combines my interest in best-friends-turned-lovers tropes and my interest in hate!sex in one fandom, so. /shrug

Nahhh. Don't feel forced to do anything on my account, love.

Please, I’m way too lazy to read through top/bottom wanks, LOL. It’s just a lot of effort, and I don’t care what other people like, I just know what I like, and it’s surprisingly hard to find. //wince It’s silly to fight about this, you know? Everyone likes what they can like.

I’m just a fan of bottom!John ;; I don’t want him switching. All the other boys can do whatever the fuck they want, LOL, but he’s so cute and wonderful and I have such a John kink. Obviously I like him with Sherlock best, but, he’s just, JOHN, he deserves the world.


Omg Sara… that’s so weird thinking about you writing slash porn. Whattt remember those RPs we had? LOL //digs them up and laughs at them.

Make one! So I can go through all of them and roll around in your writing in glee (once more!)

Reversal? *-* John “dies”? omg…

Which reminds me, wouldn’t it be hilarious if Sherlock goes head to head with a certain gentlemen thief?

Yeah I mean 2005. It’s so confusing, which is why I’ve been putting it off since er, four years ago. My school mate was like, OMG CHRISTINA WATCH THIS, and I was like, LOOKS COOL OK SURE, except I never did. Master of Procrastination, I am.

Ohh OK. I will def. take your advice then. I always feel like I’m cheating… Like when I skip Naruto fillers (which reminds me, I have 40 chapters of manga to catch up, better do that now.) Reminds me of the days when I used to skip ahead in books ‘cause I didn’t understand (reading LotR at 10… orz)

That’s… what is it with friends-turned-lovers-then-something-bad-happens-pairings that draw us in so hard…? Doesn’t that speak a lot about our mental states (or should?)

No, no, pressure me. I’ll never write anything otherwise. * x*

Happy birthday! ♥♥

Well, I've found this and this in terms of bottom!John reclists — if you don't know them already, you're likely to find stuff you haven't read yet in them. I think part of the reason why people adore top!John is because Watson's gone through so much flak in the decades since ACD wrote the stories; he's been viewed as the buffon and the lout for so long that many of us want to write him as slightly more in control in his relationship with Sherlock than he usually has.

Oh, dear, if it surprises you that I write slash it really has been a long time since we last talked. I've gone through quite a few fandoms since DCMK.

And yeah, John pseudo-dies in that one — it's finished, actually, it should be up sometime before Christmas. It's interesting, to reverse roles that way.

Oh, I'm pretty sure that already exists. Somewhere. In the LJ DCMK comms, maybe?

DW is mightily confusing at first, but you do get used to it rather fast; and then in order to understand everything you just go back up to the earlier episodes. :D If you don't start with s1, s5 really is best because it draws a clean slate after the entire plot arc of the previous seasons, but there will be some parts you won't get. You're entirely welcome to ask me for data, btw.

I have no idea. It's a trope that just works, I guess. In the case of TSN it also involves betrayal! traps! lawsuits! and basically a lot of angst. Delicious, delicious angst.

Oh! okay then. WRITE, CHRISTINA.

See, that's the weird thing. I generally like the bottom more... And I always give them more control, emotionally. LOL I screw them around and play with them and throw them against the wall and stomp on them while writing, because I really really love them. I'm so insane haha.

No no, it's not necessarily surprise! Just oddness. I've never read your slash before, but you were writing them even when I knew you (xxxHolic, I think?)

I've been in a few slash pairing fandoms lately. Sooooo weird haha. I'm generally such a het person.

Link me? When you're done posting it up.

I went to watch the second Sherlock Holmes film yesterday. I got angry at how... Cheesy the ending was lol... I was like, just have him die already!!! All the not-very-subtle 'maybe he's alive' hints got annoying. But it was exciting, in the way Hollywood films often are. Slow action bomb explosions and all that.

And Watson was handsome, so so so handsome. //swoons

And all the slash hints omg. 'Lay with me, Watson!' //holds out hand while in drag

I thinking will start with s1, I'm just picky like that. Did you know, I watched 500 eps of dcoman. No, really. In like 2 months. I think I'm sick of it now LOL but I did it. //proud

All my pairings are like that lately. I mean, the whole Naruto storyline focuses on that one plotlne.

From: [identity profile] falling-voices.livejournal.com
Nah, that's basic H/C stuff, don't worry. There are lots of fans who like to have their favourite characters get hurt. And of course bottoming doesn't mean you can't be in control — mostly I meant that fans have written Holmes/Watson, in that order, for so long, that the Sherlock fanbase seems bent on reversing the trend a bit. Still, though, there's stuff for everyone out there.

I dabbled a bit in xxxHolic, yeah. It was still, man, quite a few years ago. TBH, I really don't care much if it's slash or het — I like genderbending characters so they're femslash too — I just enjoy their dynamics. Concerning Sherlock, my interpretation of Sherlock himself is that he's mostly asexual, which gives yet another curve to a romantic relationship with John. It's interesting.

Sure. It's in beta right now.

I can't see that movie until next month, sadly, unless I manage to find an alternative before then, but the spoilers sound... well. Interesting? Explosive. Very very gay. It sounds like fun! I don't like the Ritchie!verse quite as much as I do the canon!verse or the bbc!verse, but that subportion of the fandom is very nice and friendly, and there's been quite a lot of fantastic stuff written there, which makes up for the movies being a bit average.
