I've got this week off so I'm making a bit of an effort to catch up on a few fandom bits and pieces. First off, given what has been happening to the LJ servers, I'll no longer be cross-posting there. I'll also be taking down more sensitive posts, including photos etc. I won't delete my LJ because I use it to read communities, but if you follow me on both, please be aware that I'll only be (sporadically) updating my DW.

Secondly, although I was signed up for Yuletide this year, I sadly had to default fairly early on due to health issues. However, I received some amazing gifts just to same. These are so wonderfully in character, and I am absolutely thrilled with them. Please do give them some love!

Summary: The race over, the trophies presented and the champagne spilled, the crowd thought the lights above the circuit were part of the show.
"What’s that?" Gerhard asked, pointing.
Alain squinted up into the bright flicker, the ground beneath him feeling uncertain, as if he was a little boy drunk on a thimbleful of sherry. "A comet," he said, sounding a bit doubtful, and then everything went dark.

I also watched the new Sherlock, which was... well, it had some plot issues. The first few that occurred to me, in no particular order: Read more... )

Sorry for bringing logic to a nonsense party. I had to phone my mother and rant at her down the phone while she laughed helplessly at my rage.

Do better, show. Do better.

 I made fic happen. It's gen fic, Sherlock and Mycroft with a dash of John. Anyone fancy making it not suck quite so badly?
kangeiko: (sherlock holmes)
So, Elementary. I have been putting off watching this show for so long, and I can't even remember why, now. It's blowing me away. But is it ACD?
