I want to state some facts before you friend me, okay? Be civil and don't bring unneeded drama. If you defriend me I won't take it personally. This is my journal, and I feel I can post whatever I want in it, so I fangirl squee a lot; however that is the point of this journal since it's a fandom journal. Real life posts are on a different journal which is FO and by invite only. Commenting is not an issue for me.

Fandoms For This Journal
Favorite Characters / Favorite Pairings List

• I believe in Sherlock. Morairty was a liar.
• Watching Masterpiece Mystery is my favorite way to spend a Sunday night. I like Hercule Poirot, Miss Marple and Endeavour because of it.
• Into crime procedurals (mostly Elementary and Hawaii Five-0 when I catch repeats, plus Perception and Grimm when I remember)
• Into sci-fi/fantasy (mostly Eureka ::sob::, Warehouse 13, Sleepy Hollow and Doctor Who, where Eleven is my Doctor but Ten's pretty awesome, too)
• Into Joss Whedon's shows (to varying degrees: love Firefly and continue to watch "Serenity" frequently, have Doctor Horrible's Sing-Along Blog songs on my MP3 player and rewatch sometimes, prefer Angel over Buffy the Vampire Slayer but I still love both shows even though I don't rewatch very often, and eventually I'll watch S2 of Dollhouse).
• Into movies of the live action variety. The only ones you'll really see me writing fic for are the St. Trinian's series and the 2009 Star Trek reboot. I adore them to pieces. I might also try my hand at the Marvel movieverse. We'll see.
• Into The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings trilogy (having taken a college course about them), and the movie versions are some of my favorite movies ever. Also a huge fan of the Harry Potter books, as well as the movies. Firm believer that the British do fantasy best.
• Favorite writers include David & Leigh Eddings, Amy Tan, Neil Gaiman and Mercedes Lackey; you might catch me writing The Elenium/The Tamuli or The Belgariad/The Mallorean or Tales of the Five Hundred Kingdoms fanfic every once in a while.
• Into comics, though I abhor the DC reboot after Flashpoint and am waiting for the next crisis to see if things go back to a way that makes me inclined to follow comics again. Favorite series is The Sandman, though I'm also very fond of Gotham Central and the old Birds of Prey as well. Favorite comic is The Question: Five Books of Blood. One of these days I may start reading Marvel. Related note: huge fan of the DCAU (Justice League Unlimited is my favorite) and the direct to DVD DC movies.
• Into manga, though it's mostly Bleach (before the Thousand Year Holy War arc in the manga), Zombie Loan, xxxHOLiC, The Wallflower (aka Yamatonadeshiko Shichihenge), Chibi Vampire, Shugo Chara!, The Tarot Cafe, Oh! My Goddess and Bizenghast. Also into anime, but that's mostly Bleach (subs, not dubs...hate the dubs), Zombie Loan, xxxHOLiC, Cowboy Bebop and a few others that I forgot.
• Former fandoms that I still mention/occasionally write fics for include the CSI franchise (yes, even Miami), Criminal Minds (it just hasn't been the same since Prentiss left), Supernatural (I kind of got back into it last season but I'm still really lost), Once Upon A Time (can't watch this season but I still love the show) and a few others floating around.
• Adore crossovers to pieces. Mostly active in the Wholock fandom (Sherlock/Amy is my OTP, don't hate on me for it). Also write other Doctor Who crossovers because it's the easiest most crossover-est show ever (and everybody could use a visit from the Doctor in my opinion), and Sherlock crossovers because all of a sudden I really like the idea of Sherlock meeting...well, everyone.

Drive-by post since I got online time tonight but it's almost over. Work is insane and none of us are doing well because too many people + too few people at the rides = not enough sales being made. Totally not regretting not getting the promotion right now. Poor BB leads. And I work six days again next week so no free time for me. Wrote more fic last night/today. Here you go.

The More Things Change… (4/4) | Sherlock - PG | Sherlock Holmes/Molly Hooper, John Watson, Greg Lestrade and the cab driver killer in this chapter | Part 5 of my "A Different Path" series | Sherlock's life has taken a few turns for the better since he went back to his old life, and it looks as though things will keep improving as certain truths come to light between him and Molly and he makes another new friend. But Moriarty's reach is long and whoever is carrying out his plans isn't about to let him forget about the story Moriarty wants him to star in.
Authors Notes: Part 5 of my “A Different Path” series.

The Morning After | Sherlock - PG | Sherlock Holmes/Molly Hooper | Part 6 of my "A Different Path" series | It's the morning after their first time being intimate, and Molly and Sherlock share a pleasant if rushed morning together.

Not splitting between personal and fandom posts right now because I don't want to spam all of you with two very short posts. I am currently sitting in the children's section of the library I have my visits with my son at because all the adult computers are being used where the two of us can sit next to each other. I feel kind of special because they're making an exception for me. But I don't care that my son is eleven years old. I'm not letting him sit by himself.

It has been a fairly good day. We spent a lot of time on the computer today, but we also did a little grocery shopping (OMG the chocolate crunch energy version of Honey Bunches Of Oats is SO GOOD...that's my new work snack to get me through my nine hours shifts and three hour commute home) and Trace showed me his new game. I can't watch the roller coaster with the view where it's like you're actually on the ride because my kid is a devious track designer and the loops and stuff make me ill. I don't think I will ever attempt any roller coaster that makes me go upside down now. Ever. We also played a couple rounds of Hangman and my son trounced me. I got one of my mom's words in two letters though.

During the time I have been online I have updated my WIP that's part of my new series with two new chapters, and my son has convinced me to put him in one of my fanfics. As soon as I finish that one I'm going to start the one with Trace in it. There will be Sherlock and an 11-year-old with hyperactivity problems and Pokemon, and it shall be glorious. Which is why I'm setting it in the new AU because I think most of my other Sherlocks would hate him within twenty minutes, except the "Anything Can Happen" and "A Little Holmes" Sherlocks because they're fathers/expectant fathers at this point. They'd simply look at it as a preview of what's coming up in a few years. But I will make sure the kidlet reads it and see if the he approves. So yes. I can't wait to write that. I just need to finish this "A Study In Pink" rewrite first. In case any of you are interested, by the way, here's the two newest chapters:

The More Things Change… (2 - 3/?) | Sherlock - PG | Sherlock Holmes/Molly Hooper, Mrs. Hudson, John Watson, Greg Lestrade, Sally Donovan and Phillip Anderson in these chapters | Part 5 of my "A Different Path" series | Sherlock's life has taken a few turns for the better since he went back to his old life, and it looks as though things will keep improving as certain truths come to light between him and Molly and he makes another new friend. But Moriarty's reach is long and whoever is carrying out his plans isn't about to let him forget about the story Moriarty wants him to star in.

So I ended up writing, like, five complete fics, two new WIPs as part of two different series and I added a chapter to my actor AU. I was very busy over the last two days. I'll post the other stories tomorrow, but here's my new AU series that I'm really excited for. So excited it was pretty much all I wrote yesterday. And this morning. Enjoy!

A Return To A Past Left Behind | Sherlock - PG | Sherlock Holmes, Greg Lestrade, Molly Hooper, Mrs. Hudson, Mycroft Holmes, Jim Moriarty and an OMC | Part 1 of my "A Different Path" series | When Sherlock Holmes was eight years old he solved a murder case and sent Jim Moriarty to jail. After nine years of consulting for Scotland Yard as a child prodigy he stopped, but many years after he solved the Carl Powers case a threat from Moriarty sends him back into the world of being a consultant. The question now is whether this is a one time thing or a new path for his life to take.

In The Moment | Sherlock - PG | Sherlock Holmes/Molly Hooper, DI Dimmock and an OFC | Part 2 of my "A Different Path" series | Sherlock is tasked to find a missing painting with Molly accompanying him. Once the case is solved they take a little time to themselves at the museum and make a few admissions towards each other, leading to a new type of relationship between them.

Impressed | Sherlock - PG | Sherlock Holmes/Molly Hooper and Sally Donovan | Part 3 of my "A Different Path" series | Molly and Sherlock have a date one evening where she gets the feeling he wants to impress her, and he does a spectacular job of doing so.

An Offer And A Refusal | Sherlock - PG | Sherlock Holmes/Molly Hooper and Mycroft Holmes | Part 4 of my "A Different Path" series | Mycroft pays a visit to Molly at her job and asks her to do something she doesn't want to do: spy on Sherlock for him.

The More Things Change… (1/?) | Sherlock - PG | Sherlock Holmes/Molly Hooper, Mike Stamford and John Watson in this chapter | Part 5 of my "A Different Path" series | Sherlock's life has taken a few turns for the better since he went back to his old life, and it looks as though things will keep improving as certain truths come to light between him and Molly and he makes another new friend. But Moriarty's reach is long and whoever is carrying out his plans isn't about to let him forget about the story Moriarty wants him to star in.

HOW IN THE HELL DID I NOT KNOW SEASON 2 OF ENDEAVOUR HAD STARTED?!? Is it on PBS? Can I find it somewhere online? Damn it, people, you are supposed to tell television deprived me these things! I am so disappointed in all of you right now. Now comes the true dilemma: wait until I can see this season to download the caps from the premiere or download them to drool over. Decisions, decisions.

Also, I had the day off yesterday and the college was closed for a state holiday. So I wrote. A lot. Started a whole new Sherlock AU series I'm really excited for, updated my "Undead Is The New Alive" and "The Family Business" series and updated the actor AU WIP. So yesterday was a very productive day.

Real quick because I only have 15 minutes left and then visit time with the kidlet. Happy early birthday, rainbowstevie! I hope the day is perfect and nothing goes wrong and that all your fandomy dreams come true.

Also, I posted fic. Well, one new one new story in a fandom I've been ignoring for a while (Elementary, oh how I've missed thee) and chapter 2 of my actors AU. Eventually I will pick up the Angsty Fic O'Doom again but I need to finish watching season 3 of Sherlock and my mom's been too tired to watch it with me the last few days (she had a stress test because her cardiologist is concerned and it's worn her out). But anyway. Soon. I loved the first episode and I have high hopes for the rest of it.

Anyway! fic. Here you go.

Escalation | Elementary - PG | Joan Watson & Sherlock Holmes | It starts off when Sherlock steals Joan's fuzzy red sweater, and turns into an all out prank war by the end of the whole affair. Joan reflects upon what happened.

As Long As You Love Me Truly (2/?) | Sherlock - PG so far | Sherlock Holmes/Molly Hooper, Greg Lestrade, John Watson and Phillip Anderson in this chapter | All Molly Hooper wants to do is get her big break on the London stage. She might have a chance when she's asked to be the lead in one of the most anticipated productions on the West End, and by the star himself, Sherlock Holmes. But things don't exactly go according to the plan she had in her head of how she would become a well known actress, and as time goes on she needs to figure out whether she wants fame or whether she wants something more fulfilling.

So I got something accomplished today, at least. Posted another story on A03 and made 25 Lestarde icons (well, 24 and a recast icon) for land_deduction. But I kid you not, it took me hours to make those icons and I'm still not 100% happy with all of them. Ah, well. It will get me points, which is good. Anyway, here's what I did today:

The Satisfying (And Long Overdue) Reunion | Sherlock - PG | Sherlock Holmes/Molly Hooper & Mycroft Holmes | Part 11 of my "Anything Can Happen" series | Three months, two weeks and six days after they got married Sherlock is finally able to return home, and there's been a few changes in the Holmes household in that length of time.

24 icons of Greg Lestrade for land_deduction's Case 10 ("20 in 20 challenge") + 5 extras
1 icon of Alan Rickman (for the Recast section)

Preview 1 Preview 2 Preview 3


Not our division!

If these sets were ever on sale at work I would buy them in a heartbeat. I collect minifigures and I'd love to add any of these band sets to my collection, or at least the bands I like. They are awesome.

I wrote two new fics and posted them at AO3 recently. One is a new AU (this time it's acting!) and the other is a longish fic for one of my series where I write a really impromptu wedding. I should be writing Angsty Fic O'Doom but one of my friends on Facebook suggested I watch season 3 of Sherlock first for a better bad guy so I'm going to defer to her excellent advice. Anyway, here are the stories!

As Long As You Love Me Truly (1/?) | Sherlock - PG (so far) | Sherlock Holmes/Molly Hooper, Mrs. Hudson, Greg Lestrade and Phillip Anderson for this part | All Molly Hooper wants to do is get her big break on the London stage. She might have a chance when she's asked to be the lead in one of the most anticipated productions on the West End, and by the star himself, Sherlock Holmes. But things don't exactly go according to the plan she had in her head of how she would become a well known actress, and as time goes on she needs to figure out whether she wants fame or whether she wants something more fulfilling.

The Most Eventful Day | Sherlock - NC-17 | Sherlock Holmes/Molly Hooper, Greg Lestrade, Anthea & Mycroft Holmes | Part 10 of my "Anything Can Happen" series | In the face of leaving London for an extended amount of time for a situation that could be dangerous, Sherlock and Molly decide that they would much rather be married before he leaves. Having a brother who is essentially the government comes in handy sometimes, Sherlock realizes, as Mycroft makes it happen.

So my son and I cut our Pokemon battle short today (after I won again) for some online time. He's been wanting to play online all afternoon, even if he did kind of want a rematch because, you know, I keep winning when we play Pokemon. Silly kidlet. You'll learn you can never beat Mom one day.

Anyway. I wrote the first four chapters of the Angsty Fic O'Doom in five days, so I'm proud of myself. I'm going to write more tonight in between doing laundry, and a bit more each night until I hit chapters nine, ten and eleven, which are the ones I'm dreading writing. I have "Starter For 10" and "Pitch Perfect" on standby for when I finally hit those chapters, plus what feels like a million feel good prompts to write if I need distraction (I counted thirty prompts I gave for the summer round of sherlockmas that no one answered so I'm going to answer them all myself...eventually). I can get through this. I can finish this story. The only bad part is I listen to the whole fanmix as I write, so when I was trying to write chapter 4 (the "Sherlock and Molly realize that they want to be with each other even though they can't but sexy timez happen anyway" chapter) I kept hearing "Run To You" by Pentatonix which is the saddest freaking song in the fanmix and I'm all "But I'm supposed to be writing something marginally happy right now!" I think I just need to listen to the few songs each chapter is dedicated to on repeat as I write each chapter. Until I kill Molly. Because I am not listening to the above song a million times. I'll cry myself to sleep that night.

I have other BBs to write for (I signed up for two stories for scifibigbang and three stories for casestory, but two of my three casestory fics are already at the halfway mark for the word count or over it since I wrote them for other challenges but didn't finish them in time) so I need to work on those as well. One of them is a Star Trek AU where Kirk's a dork, one of them is the longer fic I have planned for my "Molly and Sherlock are vampires" AU where Molly thinks she's killing innocent people and Sherlock has two weeks to figure out what's going on until the council goes after her, two of them are Wholock stories for my "All of Time And Space" series (one is an original case and the other is a rewrite of "The Snowmen") and the final casefic is a fic I should have written last year for my Sherlock/Elementary crossover series where lestrade goes to New York and gets involved in a case there. So yeah. I have a lot of writing ahead of me, but thankfully every one of those fics only needs to be 10K in length. I just want to get the depressing story done first.

And yeah. I swear, after these three big bangs no more challenges. I need to work on that original novel. I'm sticking to my "Finish it by June 30th" resolution if it kills me. But considering I wrote a novel length fanfic in six weeks and I'm planning on using at least 10K of the fanfic in the first novel I have a head start. I can do this. I know I can.

So I am finally diving back into game again. Brilliant fellow players came up with the idea that Kirk did a freelance job of a secretive nature after the big fight in December and has basically been radio silent for the last three months. What is most amusing is that one of the pint sized versions of the characters is talking to him about ducks and stuff and he's all "Okay, I will deal with this by trying my best to not scar her for life." He's adorable.

Anyway, I would post more but my son showed up a half hour earlier than expected. I'll try and do a post on my phone later. Bye!
