Ugh, I need to post. Have fallen out of the habit so badly, and tumblr's mindless reblogging is just so nice when I get to procrastinating about actually saying things, and/or am being a hermit. Anyway, bulletpoints to catch up:

•Had a pipe from the kitchen down to the basement go bad and leak, resulting in the first time ever for making a homeowner's insurance claim. "Minor", but still resulted in weeks of repairs and contractors--plumber, carpenter, water damage treatment company, drywaller, painter, etc, multiple visits of each. And well, not the worst expense, but still expense.

•In amongst that, naturally was time to renew my driver's license and had to plate/pay sales taxes on the new(ish) car

•Had to deal with my aunt's, mother's, and stepmother's birthdays, am now about to my own. Not digging the whole nearly-38 thing.

•Did jury duty, actually got placed in a jury for a county criminal trial. Luckily, found out when it was time for deliberations that I was the alternate juror and could leave. The whole situation massively pushed all my anxiety buttons--I do not deal with new things well, nor with situations involving conflict/arguing. Also luckily, Omaha is 'one day-one trial', so once you do your day/trial (if it goes longer than a day, though mine didn't), your jury duty service is considered complete. So no spending days/weeks on it.

•Family member has gotten themselves into some trouble; nothing I can do for it but listen when my parents want to talk about it. It's not the end of the world, I'm sure they can work through it with some time. Just a strange and weird thing, the way people can fuck up.

•Still haven't gotten to show Sherlock (BBC) to the gals that come over on Saturdays. Stuff keeps coming up. GOING TO ASAP. Am going to demand it Saturday. (Have inflicted Stonehenge Apocalypse on one group of friends; eventually after Sherlock stuff, will make the gals watch it, too. Trolololol.)

•Health willing, as am dealing with a cold for the last few days.

•Over the years, have seen bits and pieces of Nine and Ten era Dr.Who--have downloaded damned near all of the five-so-far seasons, am currently up to s1ep5 of Nine. Enjoying the hell out of it. Need to watch more.

•Have not been raiding in WoW, just doing the new dailies/achievements. But have come to the decision--I'm going to faction switch Akseru from horde to alliance, to do casual raiding with the husband's guild. They seem okay people, stable and low drama, from what I've seen playing on an alt there. I don't like the look of alliance male characters though, so Ak will be changing from a male bloodelf to a female human. In my mental RPG for the character, it actually suits him and is oddly fitting. And it's still him, even when a her. Don't ask :p The husband has done a Figureprints statuette of what he previously looked like for my birthday, and now that that's shipped, will do the faction switch later today. I guess it's come down to that in my very first guild six years ago, I didn't know anyone--but every time since, every time, that I've joined a new guild, I've known RL and/or online friends already in said guild. At this point, I don't want to join somewhere I don't know anyone at all. So this works for me right now.

•PS I am looking forward to more Supernatural, and will be watching s7. I guess the extent of my fanning is just reblogging a bit of stuff on tumblr, and sometimes reading a short fic here or there. It's just sharing my attention with Sherlock, Dr.Who and even Community, and I'm more feeling part of the Sherlock fandom than anything else, atm--even if I've pretty much proven to myself with one poem that I can't write for it for crap :p But I do so love reading the fic. S/J fic yes yes yes ♥

•But seriously: Sherlock Sherlock Sherlock Sherlock Sherlock ♥ Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch can shake my boat any day.

•...is that everything? Am I caught up? o_O I think that's everything.

•Oh wait--very, very, very belated thanks to [livejournal.com profile] silverraven and [livejournal.com profile] cherie_morte for the vgifts. \o/♥ So sorry it took...a month and a half, ugh >_< for me to say something.

They sent you home a dead man
but forgot to put you in a box
so you'd know to stop moving
so you'd know to stop needing useless air
drawn in with keep calm-steady breaths.
They let you shuffle
like the living dead on those movies you watch
in the insomniac hours
before morning and after night;
but on three legs instead of two
you're no good
even as a zombie.

How fortunate you met the madman.

Mad genius, mad scientist
your Dr. Frankenstein
he fills you with a living man's blood
whenever he lets you stand near
injects you with adrenaline
with every word from his needle-sharp tongue.
His thoughts spark between your neurons
and he is your living Tesla coil
restarting your heart
with the lightning touch of his hand.
His gaze on you slams against your chest
like defibrillator paddles
shock jolting through your body
each time your eyes meet his;
when he speaks, you hear:

Rise up and walk. Rise up and run!

and, because it's him
you do.

oh hai.

Right, so life has been happening, and I've been seriously remiss in posting but I promise I will later. Mostly it can be summed up in two things: plumbing, and I'm a lazy bastard of a hermit. Yeahwell.

In the meantime. SHERLOCK SHERLOCK SHERLOCK. I can't begin to describe how freaking much in love with this show and characters I am these days, and it's damned near all I read. I have not abandoned the boys, I just...it's an *infatuation*, and just. *___* Anyway. In amongst fic reading, I saw a story that was 5 different AUs of how Sherlock and John could have met, and one scene was them as SPN style hunters. And I thought: GODDAMN I WANT A FULL FIC OF THAT. I whined, and hell if [livejournal.com profile] paxlux didn't take up the challenge. (My squishyyyyyyyy ♥)

thank the hatchet man who forked my tongue, [livejournal.com profile] paxlux, gen, PG-13, 8400 words
IT. IS. AWESOME. Awesome awesome awesome and I love it. *_____*

The only thing that bums me out about this fandom is that I just don't think I could write in it, not poetry and definitely not prose. Ugh, I wish I could fanpoem for this show, golly gee whillikers.

Whole bunch of new icons--Sherlock, John, Sherlock&John. ♥ Almost all of them handed to me on a silver platter by [livejournal.com profile] paxlux who is my Squishy (aka Squishirito aka Squishlock)♥♥♥ There can never, ever be enough Sherlock \o/

Have been really, really remiss on responding to comments, even to those of you who've left recs (thank you, btw) D: Sorry D: D: Have been extraordinarily distracted (by reading, er >_> and by other things). I will get to replying soon, I swear.

I love seeing a fic recced for something like hcbingo at a major rec community, and the fic is entirely hurt and no comfort. I would think if I were reccing it as a feature of something like say, hcbingo, I'd make sure I not only liked the writing, but that it you know, actually *FIT* the h/c theme.  People in this fandom are so stupid about h/c sometimes. They love to hurt, oh how they love to hurt...but then it's like 'okay, I'm done now' after they do the hurting.  Sorry, it's not hbingo or hurtbingo. FFS. I'm not complaining about the hurting being done, or those who write outright torture--to each their own. Just the blatant misunderstanding, mislabeling, and misrepresentation of the trope, and the fact that *SO* many seem to neglect the c in h/c. Anyway, rant off.

Also, I HAVE POST NO-MORE-SHERLOCK-TO-WATCH STRESS DISORDER. D: Asdfasdfkjsdfksdjkjfk WANT MOOOOOORE. I want season 2 NOOOOOOOW. T____T My response to the...ending was thus, as well as the last paragraph and tags here. Fffffffffffffffffffffffff, I want to rewatch it already. And I am reading so much fic that [livejournal.com profile] paxlux is reccing to me. So much fic \o/ (PS. FIC RECS, ANYONE? I already know I need to dig through [livejournal.com profile] mistyzeo 's old fic recs as well as her fics themselves :o ) It is odd that I was never much one for the books, enjoyed the movie but didn't go flailing fangirl over it--but the BBC series? All I can do is capslock and keymash.  Something about modern era and the acting and that chemistry between them and Cumberbatch's voice and the marvelous cinematography and just UNF. 

PS I want the background music for Sherlock, and the open/end credits themes. D: And I WANT HIS COAT SO WHARRGARBL BADLY. Too bad it's no longer being made, and even when it was, cost over $2000. WOE.

  • Car is fixed, and it was a simple, cheap repair \o/ Turns out the first repair actually had solved the problem (ie spark plugs, wires), but spark plugs have the same problem as computer parts like RAM: sometimes new ones are simply bad, and they fail spectacularly very quickly. Which is what happened with one of our new spark plugs; replaced, all is well, though the mechanic noted our muffler is going bad. Not surprising considering the age of the vehicle. At least that's something we can get done without it being an ~emergency~.
  • Have downloaded Community s2, but haven't started watching yet
  • Have downloaded the three episodes of BBC Sherlock and OH MY FUCKING GOD WHY HAS IT TAKEN ME SO LONG TO WATCH THIS \o/ ♥ \o/ ♥ \o/ ♥ \o/ ♥ \o/ ♥ \o/ ♥ \o/ ♥ \o/ ♥ Watched the first episode last night, and I am besotted. *___* I love everything even down to the music, and when Benedict Cumberbatch first spoke I flailed and went all asdfsdkfjsdfsdkfjk because holy shit his voice *____*  I um, may be reading a little fic today, and have a tiny minor Sherlock/John thing, though I am fabulously fascinated by what people might write just in a gen sense or that which would explore this interesting friendship that's started and *_____* Eeee.
  • I'm definitely still Supernatural/Wincest/J2 uber alles, but man, it's so nice to have a little something else I'm wanting to read as well. It's been *so long* since I've had something like that.
  • Ugh, made cocoa with some leftover cream and it was too rich and way too sweet, urgh. :p Milk chocolate, bleh, why do you always disappoint me (and next time I put marshmallows in cocoa, I'm toasting them over an oven burner flame first).
  • Yes, I know I was making cocoa in June. The pursuit of chocolate knows no time or seasonal restrictions.
  • P.S. I want Sherlock's coat. I want his coat. I WANT HIS COOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAT.
