…And now it’s really been awhile since I last updated this blog.
My laptop got fixed, after three weeks, but then I sold it and got a new one. So, back now!
In the meantime, my obsession with all things Sherlock has progressed from Benedict Cumberbatch to Rupert Graves, who is in a lot of stuff! It’s a lot easier to get an actor fix when said actor guest stars on a lot of procedural dramas. And for this reason, I’ve watched his episodes of New Tricks and Law & Order: UK, and also sort of skimmed through a bit of Single Father. The later I’m not that into, but I’ll probably watch a bit more (yes, just for Rupert Graves, I’m shallow like that), New Tricks was amusing… and L&O:UK I loved and have started watching. I already liked original flavor L&O and SVU, so it’s not surprising that I’d like the UK version (L&O + accents = win). Also, Jamie Bamber ♥! (No, I have not watched Battlestar Galactica… thinking perhaps I’ll have to correct that at some point).
The other thing is that, after quite a while of meaning to get around to it, I started watching Spooks. I enjoy the spy genre a lot and am just loving Spooks. I’m about to finish the first series/season, and will probably be posting about it after I do.
And yes, I’ve fallen way behind on the toku side. Oops?
This post will be periodically updated with new recs. Last updated: 10/30
It has been a long long time since a show has grabbed my attention the way Sherlock has, to the point that I’ve been completely neglecting, well, pretty much anything that is not Sherlock related. So I thought I’d just rec links related to this awesome little show that has pretty much just eaten my brain the past few weeks.
Sherlock blogs/communities Probably anyone that is into Sherlock fandom knows these, but oh well…
SherlockBBC – extremely active, very awesome LJ comm for Sherlock. Obviously, there’s a ton of fanfic (slash, gen, cracky crossovers, what have you), but it’s also a great place for actual discussion and meta.
CumberbatchFans – if in the past 3 or 4 weeks you have developed, like I have, the most ridiculous crush on Benedict Cumberbatch, then check out this comm.
(I should maybe mention that as far as I’m concerned, Sherlock is canonically asexual. This doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy slash, though).
The Thermodynamis series – by [ljuser]entangled_now[/ljuser]. This series is hands down my favorite Sherlock fic(s). It’s cute in exactly the way Sherlock fic should be cute: with a bit of awkwardness, matter of fact, very amusing; and also sexy in exactly the way Sherlock should be sexy, which includes acknowledges the fact that he’s most likely asexual, and works organically with that, and it ends up being integral to how delicious the whole thing is.
The Rules – In which there are rules, and John breaks them.
You’re a difficult equation – by [ljuser]folkhore[/ljuser]. Pre-slash. Short, and just really beautifully written. John’s honing his own skills of observation; they’re all practiced watching Sherlock…watching Sherlock too closely.
We. – by [ljuser]footshooter[/ljuser]. Post The Great Game, Sherlock POV.
Wasted Daylight – by [ljuser]skuldydrabble[/ljuser]. Slash. Morning after fic, nothing graphic, but hints at what happened subtly and beautifully.
From Irene – with love and E-numbers – by [ljuser]elapsedspiral[/ljuser] “She’s an ex-girlfriend?” “Oh no,” Sherlock said with evidence distaste, “Far better than that. An adversary.”
untouchable; john & sherlock – by starbrights90. I don’t anticipate embedding very many videos in here (and will put them behind a cut if I do embed any more!), but this one in particular is just beautiful.
