TV Recommendations Please!

So, I have ONE EPISODE LEFT of S7 of Supernatural. And I don't know what to do next.

(Obviously, watch S8, but I'm waiting to go to California for that!)

So. I need some TV recommendations, if you have any.

I use Netflix and Amazon. I like shows like Torchwood and Doctor Who and Firefly, but I do not like shows like Star Trek. I liked most of Buffy (I guess I should eventually finish that, too, maybe...whatever) and Angel and I really really love Supernatural, I do not like Tru(e)Blood (I always forget there's an e in there somewhere). I like Sherlock and Downton Abbey and Law and Order (Criminal Intent is my favorite, but I'll watch the others), but I don't like NCIS or CSI or any of that other stuff. I like Xena. I don't generally watch modern comedies/sitcoms. I don't get them - but I did like The IT Crowd a lot. I can't stand shows like Glee (I liked the first season, and then it got weird and annoying).

So, if you have any suggestions, I would be happy to hear them! :D

The Internet Is A Source For Good (Sometimes)

Louise Brealey (Molly on Sherlock) wrote this amazing blog and you should read it. I only have the tumblr links, sorry!)

And I responded when I reblogged. Well, it wasn't really a response - more of a reflection. You don't have to read that part, but you can.


I signed into tumblr today for the first time in ages. I usually peruse on my phone, you see, which is limited. Anyway, I saw that I had a new message.

A very sweet message. From Louise herself. Or a kind person pretending to be her. It was anonymous so I can't really confirm. But it was a beautiful message regardless, and I'm going to assume with blind faith and joy that it was her; joy not because she's a famous person, but because we had that dialogue and she took the time to respond.

And it made me cry (a lot) and shake (just a little).

The end.

Valentine's Day

I wanted to write a fic about Sherlock and John and Valentine's Day, but it ended up being either:


John: Sherlock is dead and it's Valentine's Day and all I have is this violin that I will smash!

Sherlock: I'm back! Why are there heart's everywhere?


Sherlock: Let's retire and look at bees!

John: Uhm, okay.


John: I got you an actual heart.

Sherlock: *Squish*


John: I got you an actual heart. It's Moriarty's.

Sherlock: *Grin* *Squish*


Sherlock: There's a strange Valentine's-related case! And look, it has a thousand plotholes!

John: I think I'm going to go back to bed.


Sherlock: < insert something here >

John: Yeah, exactly that.


So I gave up. I'll try again later.

Life Things

Does anyone care? Je ne sais pas!

But I'm fixing up my car! Yay!

And I finally paid off one of my credit cards! And then proceeded to buy airplane tickets with that credit card!

Because I'm going to see analineblue for my birthday! Well kind of for my birthday? Mostly just because.


Also, my roommate wants to move out in 6-8 months, which means I get to play Sherlock as I try to find an ex-army doctor with a shoulder wound. Or whatever.

How is everyone here? Is anyone here? Hello? Is this thing on?

I think I'm at the point where I'm flouncing on the sofa in my dressing gown, and shouting in the direction of analineblue about how stupid everyone is.

Maybe she will make me tea and shoot serial killers for me.

Seriously. I'm 2000 words in and I don't even know what's going on. (Yes I do. I have 1000 words of snarky notes. Whatever.)

I mean, okay, I was driving home from self-imposed work today. And I thought of one thing. And that led to another thing. And then another thing. And suddenly I had built a "False Utopia" and was like, "OMG NOVEL IDEA!" And I thought about this potential novel, and then I thought, "Forget it. I'm writing fan fiction instead. And I'll turn it into a novel if it works, whatever."

Which is fine, except I now need a plot.

Why am I writing plot?

I hate myself and I'm going to bed now.

Oh boy!

Remember writing? Remember when I did that? Yeah, me either.

So. It's that time again!

Give me prompts!

1) Fandoms:
a. Sherlock
b. Doctor Who (Clara canon) (This means I probably won't write about the Ponds or earlier companions)

2) Pairings - I generally stick with canon pairings. Sherlock/John is obviously an exception to that rule. I may also be interested in some form of including Irene in that pairing.

3) I probably won't write sex. Not because I have a problem with it, but because I am bad at it and it makes me turn into a giggly 12 year old.

4) Prompts can be long or short themselves and may be as detailed as you want. The fic length may vary from very short to who knows how long.

Disclaimer: I may not write your fic. I may not write any fic. I may just do an interpretive dance instead. It might take me a day. Or a month. Or 5 years. But try out a prompt and see if it happens I guess!
