Four fantastic Sherlock fics -- the sort you'll want to read three or four times each to relive all the wonderfully rendered small moments of brilliance. Oh, new fandom. You are so shiny.

Every once in a while you come across a fanwork that perfectly sums up your view of the original text, and oh, is this vid by [ profile] charmax a perfect example of that. Pay particular attention to its treatment of Sherlock's minor and female characters; it made me flap my hands in giddiness.

Also, at some point today I'm going to make myself sit down and make a list of all my WIP and unposted fics, and then I am going to make a plan. A plan to finish things, so I can stop obsessing about them.

No, not really. But still -- the idea has quite arrested me.

Poison Prince by [ profile] theanonsisters. Watch it. Watch it now.

I can't believe I'm posting twice in one day. Who am I?

(On an unrelated note: I'm supposed to be moving out of my wonderful, wonderful house in two days and into a little place in the 'burbs -- with my mother. Whom I adore, but haven't lived with since I was fourteen. My reluctance to leave this place has manifested itself as - surprise surprise - INTENSE PROCRASTINATION. And so while I'm supposed to be out of here on the first, I have done absolutely nothing about it. I am screwed.)

Easy to research: How one becomes a forensic pathologist in Great Britain.

Not so easy to research: How one becomes a widely-feared criminal mastermind in Great Britain.

(I fell asleep at eight o'clock tonight, and woke just a few minutes ago at one thirty in the morning. My dog, his nocturnal schedule now equally confused, has begun hunting imaginary flies.

It's going to be a long night.)

I've spent the last two days in a Sherlockian haze, researching poisons and train timetables and Irish law enforcement, only rarely remembering to eat or drink or use the facilities, and listening to Poe's album Haunted on obsessive repeat. I'm about five thousand words in, and I think I might actually collapse before I make it to six thousand.

I'm having so much fucking fun writing this fic, I can't even tell you.

It's almost absurdly dark; probably the most disturbing thing I've ever written. But it's funny how easy it is to forget that while you're writing, to get caught up in the mind of the character who thinks all this is perfectly normal, really, you're just being squeamish and unforgivably bourgeois and then before you know it you're like, hmm, I don't if that murder was graphic enough, maybe I should add some intestines?

So it's been an interesting few days, is what I'm saying. Also: anyone willing to do a read-through and give me a few thoughts? I swear I've kept the intestines to the barest possible minimum.

One of these days I'm going to do a post about my MFA applications and taking the GREs and figuring out what the hell I'm doing with my life, but today is not that day. Today is a day for bloody murder, and occasionally remembering to rehydrate.

Fic recs, in celebration of my two shiny new favorite fandoms. I'm still a bit stunned, really, by all the amazing Sherlock and Inception fics that have appeared in such a short time. Oh, fandom - just when I think our relationship is beginning to stale, you give me these nutty new worlds to play in.  I'm about two-thirds of the way through an entirely too plotty Arthur/Ariadne fic, and just this afternoon I started a Sherlock fic about my dearly beloved MOLLY HOOPER.

(Yes, I ship John/Sherlock like burning. That doesn't mean that I don't intend to focus all my admittedly limited ficly attention on Molly and Sally and Sarah and Mrs. Hudson and, basically: screw you, MoffatandGatiss.)


what's the story, morning glory?  )

This only scratches the surface, really, particularly on the Sherlock front. If I've missed anything particularly fabulous in either fandom, please let me know! Doesn't matter what the pairing might be, or if there's no pairing at all; I'm not as particular as I seem.
