I miss all of you!!!! The hotel I am at has terrible wifi that won’t even load Tumblr. It’s barely civilized! I will see you all again soon someday when I have Internet.

Instead of shooting someone for Sherlock, John can just spike a volleyball into their face.

I’ve got another one of these and I fear that you all might grow tired of hearing the things I like about myself!
(1) I’m a good multitasker.
(2) I’m pretty productive.
(3) And yet I have also learned the art of procrastination.
(4) I feel like I’m good at cherishing the things I love in my life.
(5) I am also an expert complainer.
The lose of a pillar of fandom (and Johnlock in particular) is just one more S4 stressor for me.
Oh, my goodness, I didn’t mean to add stress!
So I received a tweet last night from someone that alerted me to the fact that someone has put up some of my fics on Goodreads. I poked around, and others of the bigger fics in the fandom also seem to be up there.
I guess I was caught mainly by surprise. Is this a thing people are doing now?…
I was just thinking the other day that I need a Goodreads equivalent for fic. I don’t think it feels right to put up fic on that site, not because it doesn’t belong there with books but because it has a different culture associated with it. Anyway, I use Kippt (and before that Springpad) to keep a list of things to read and my favorites. I use the AO3 bookmarks and subscriptions but I like something more dynamic so I can collect things as I see fit (“fics to make me cry”, “fluffy happy fics” “WIPS to check on obsessively” “PWP ~horny goat noises”). But I wish there was a more social and broadly used option. Any suggestions??
Thoughts on this, guys?
The Pinboard.in web app is a sophisticated cataloging system with a very plain interface (works well for mobile). Many fans moved en masse when Delicious simplified, and Pinboard’s owner embraced fandom’s feature requests and our enthusiasms.
Good to know!
Anonymous asked: Have you read the His Dark Materials trilogy?
I read “The Golden Compass” and strongly disliked it, so I never read the rest of the trilogy.
Anonymous asked: So for an entire week now I have not been able to stop obsessing over the image of Benedict-as-Sherlock skating in a fitted T-shirt and jeans to "Golden Years." To the point where I actually went to iTunes and downloaded the song, which did no good. So, you know, thanks for that. (And it does seem like a great skating song -- never ever would have picked it.)
I actually listened to a lot of Bowie trying to decide what to use for that scene, and I really think “Golden Years” is a good one!
Glad you have been obsessing over the scene. ;-)
