1. Many, many thanks to Shinta, Jas, Steff and Samena for the lovely blue dragons. It's certainly the Year of the Dragon, eh? ♥♥♥

2. A couple of quick recs. A Sherlock/LOTR crossover brilliantly written by [livejournal.com profile] aussiepeach. Here, where Frodo first met the Consulting Ranger at the Prancing Inn and its sequel where the Consulting Ranger met the Irene Adler of Lothlorien. Much hilarity ensues and yeah, I'm surprised that none of the Fellowship hadn't punched Sherlock yet lol. Read, read, READ! ( Thank you [livejournal.com profile] frodosweetstuff )

Uhm, Katikat, I don't think you'll have any objection to the casting of Watson here ;D

3. A crossover vid of sorts where House meets Sherlock meets Fortysomething. Or rather where Dr Paul Slippery had migrated to US to become the famous consulting doctor while his son, Rory grew up to be the equally famous ( or equally annoying, depending on whom you ask ) consulting detective.

Here. ( Thank you [livejournal.com profile] katikat for the heads-up! )

Fic rec.

Okay, I didn't think I'd ever really get into the fanfic side of the Sherlock fandom. I've read a fic here and there and while I enjoyed them, it was a little like when I started shipping Dean/Cas, I couldn't really get into the non-gen ones because well, angel sex and all. And while Sherlock is not an angel ( he's just on their side ), his ... asexuality made me think of Cas more than once. But just like Dean/Cas, all it took was a good writer to convince me that Sherlock/John, just like Dean/Cas, works.

But still, I don't actively go looking for fics to read but [livejournal.com profile] dreamlittleyo is on my flist and she's one of my favourite writers who wrote some of my favourite stories in the SPN fandom and imagine my delight when I saw her writing Sherlock/John! And I'm totally rec'ing this - Detonate and its sequel,
Inflammable. Completely belieavable Sherlock/John NC-17 with absolutely spot-on characterisation. Go read!

And oh, this four-liner by [livejournal.com profile] tigriswolf is perfect. Gen.

1. I ordered something online and I got a kick out of getting these emails from them : Your Kitbag order is being processed, Your Kitbag is being shipped. Kitbag. Kitbag. Mmmmmmm, I can't wait to get my Kit all wrapped up in red satin bow.

2. This scene made me so very happy.

Awww ... )

3. I re-watched The Hound of Baskervilles, with subtitles! So many delicious morsels that I had missed watching it the first time around. John calling Sherlock "Spock"! I'd love to think that that was a shout-out for Sherlock's upcoming appearance in Star Trek ::GLEE::

That was absolutely magnificent. Totally. From start to finish.

How did he do it? Was it in the book?

Excellent!

I enjoyed Sherlock's The Hound of Baskerville very, very much. Still having problem with following what he said but I love it nevertheless. My favourite moment just have to be ... )
layne67: (bc walk)
I enjoyed Sherlock's Scandal In Belgravia very, very much. I would have enjoyed it more if there were subtitles. I don't have any problem following, say, Downton Abbey or Merlin but Sherlock's way of talking is way too rapid for me. Anyone here know where I can download the subtitles? It's not up yet at my usual place here

And oh, Revenge, how I love you so. It feels a bit odd rooting for two ... anti-heros but I really adore Emily and Nolan. My boy has some wild ideas of his own about them, that they're actually brother and sister. He's also saying that Emily is Victoria's daughter!

some spoilers )

Two more episodes of Suits to go and I'm loving every minute of it, even Jenny ( gosh I kept typing that as Jensen ) and Rachel. Oh okay, they're maybe a weeee bit annoying but they didn't spoil the show for me. And I'm kind of intrigued as to who Mike would choose. My money is on Rachel but at this point in time, I've quite forgotten whether Rachel knew that Mike wasn't a real lawyer. Jenny knew the real Mike and they had known each other longer so that's a plus for her. And Harvey! Love him even though I'm still slightly mystified as to why he's so protective of Mike. Haha, so obviously I'm not slashing those two though I do adore them together - platonically. Much the same way I saw Dean and Castiel in the early days. Maybe because Harvey is a lot older than Mike.

Speaking of slashing, it's funny how certain pairings set off your inner slashy thoughts while others do not, to me I mean, no matter how much the rest of fandom does. I adore (BBC) Sherlock and Watson but I don't slash them. I don't slash Merlin and Arthur either but Arthur and Lancelot together made my heart beat just a little faster.

But Robb/Jon of Game of Thrones? I slashed them almost immediately the minute I saw them together. And lol, it's not the brother thing because I don't slash the Prison Break brothers or Numb3rs or Vampire Diaries. Shhh, I do slash Elladan/Elrohir and book!Faramir/Boromir. And yeah, Sam/Dean *g*

Supernatural tonight! I've no idea what it's going to be about, I'm completely spoiler-free but I saw some excitement at one of the SPN comms which I wasn't expecting, not from that quarters anyway and because they seemed to be excited, I'm ... hopeful. We'll see.

Haven't seen the result show yet but I'd be very upset if Haley got voted off. I got goosebumps all over, listening to her second song. That song got me the way Adam Lambert's Mad World did, and the way David Cook did with all of his performances.

And Haley's not even my Top Three. Heck, she wasn't even my Top Five. But now I want her to be in the finals and I want her to sing that song again. Go Haley!

Sherlock will be on tonight on AXN Beyond. I'm looking forward to watching it, him, in all its, his, high-def glory. The episodes that I downloaded were in HD too, but it'll be even shinier and prettier watching it direct on TV. Oh Benedict ...

Speaking of Benedict, there's a nice article on him here. And also, Frankestein on DVD may become a reality after all *hopes-prays-wishes*

Watched BBC's Sherlock last night. Huh. So, that's why so many people are slashing them! Or is that Sherlock Holmes the movie?

Anyway, I really enjoyed that. I thought it was stylish and pretty, a bit bizarre ( a lot! ) but in a VERY good way. Totally not what I was expecting lol. I went all round-eyed when Watson opened his laptop. Laptop!!

Sherlock made me think of young Sam Winchester a bit, all floppy hair and lanky and the slanted eyes, the dimples! And Watson being shorter, and the short hair of course made me think of Dean. But then, when did things not remind me of SPN lol.

Love the last part a lot, Sherlock with the blankets and his "I'm in shock!". I'm totally going to watch the next two parts. But ... only three parts? :(

And also - Martin Freeman! That was the first time I saw him, have heard so much about him the past one week and yay, he's going to be The Hobbit!

I'll be watching two episodes of SPN back-to-back tonight. Yup, still didn't watch last week's. I'm not sure whether it's a good idea to watch two episodes at one go. Double the heartbreak/frustration maybe? Or maybe ... double the joy? Maybe I should watch Merlin or House in between ... or Sherlock of course!

And speaking of SPN, there was this pull-out from our local papers waxing lyricals on SPN yay! Online version here, and it's mainly about season 5.
