Sherlock: News, LJ comm/meme and a wee ficlet.


Sherlock has been renewed! \o/ I don't know any details because I have to get to work ten minutes ago and I've joined the currently spamtastic sherlockbbc comm (my f-list got fifty billion miles long overnight when the UK was awake) so I haven't seen interview transcripts, but Moffat's confirmed it in a TV interview, so YAAY! \o/

LJ Comm, see above, posting rate right now is astounding. There's also a walloping huge comment fic thing at sherlockbbc_fic. Not restricted, so mind your step if you are bothered by things. They've got a del.icio.us whatever thing, (link's in the compile post there) with fills categorized so you don't need to wade through the 3000-odd comments of fic and fills to find reading material.

I've filled one, very quick conversation, reposting here now:

(Prompt involved clothes-sharing. )

Titled: Inappropriate Attire (GEN and PG)


"What the blazes? Why are you wearing my cardigan? Backwards?"

"I was cold."

"It doesn't even fit you! And you usually wear your ruddy great coat! And did I mention backwards?"

"I needed my wrists free. The sleeves were trailing in the chemicals and throwing off my results."

"...You're using my cardigan as a lab smock?!"

"Yes. The pockets are quite handy. I've got two sample bags in each. Mud, saliva, rat intestines and, ooo. That peculiarly pungent fecal matter from the doorman's shoe."

"You put- I-"

"Oh, I'll give it back after the reaction's done, John. Don't fret. Mrs. Hudson can mend the burnt spots-"

"I'm not your seamstress, love."

"Amazing hearing, that woman."

"Sherlock- You-"

"Yes, John?"

"Oh, just, never mind!"

"Fine then. Could you pass me the- Where are you going?"

"Upstairs!"

"Doing what?"

"BLOGGING!"

(doors slam, et cetera)
(And that's it)



*glee* I need icons!

Ah... yeah... a friend of mine is telling me every time we meet that I have to watch this, too. Eventually I will. Really.

It's very addictive and there's not much of it at this point, so it's not like you'll lose a week catching everything up. With renewal they may start airing it in other regions too, so *fingers crossed*

I surrender!
I'll watch it.
This summer.
I swear!

I've just watched the pilot and what can I say - I'm hooked... Damn, I actually had stuff to do today, now I'm reading all of your sherlock stuff...

It's an addictive little show isn't it?
aescu From: aescu Date: November 30th, 2010 06:11 am (UTC) (Link)
indeed, it is. And I think I even managed to hook my husband, too...

I'll have to wait until it comes to my area or is out on DVD to watch...

I think I heard something like October it will air somewhere in the US. Check listings.

I think that's the first Sherlock fic I've ever read!

Moffat was tweeting quite a lot about how good the ratings have been over here - 7 million+ for each ep I think it was. So I'm not surprised it's been renewed. Although the BBC are a bit strapped for cash at the moment I think!

For some reason, this makes me very happy. :-)

I think that's the first Sherlock fic I've ever read!

It's done really well for audience, airing Sunday nights or no. That's about a 30% audience share, which would equate percentage-wise to... *does rough calculations* having 70 million people watch it in the US. I think.

Although the BBC are a bit strapped for cash at the moment I think!

If the BBC would make these things internationally available and charge reasonable rates on their DVD sets, they'd make a heck of a lot more money, I think.

oh holy wow. i saw your post to pulled up a streaming vid of the first episode. Awesome!!!! I'm twenty minutes in and I already love it.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: August 10th, 2010 05:28 pm (UTC) (Link)
Woo! \o/

That was so fun! I can't believe I never heard of it before now! Well, I am happy to be jumping on near the beginning of the ride.
Excellent! Thankyou so so so so so much for mentioning it in your LJ
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: August 10th, 2010 10:27 pm (UTC) (Link)
Happy to have introduced you to it! It is really new, and there's only the three parts right now, but it's been renewed, so there will be more! \o/

I haven't caught this show. It's exctly like when my flist was all gaga over Merlin and I was like "Who the what now?" and then 6 months later found it on Syfy and fell in love. So let me get in on this one earlier, *off to google local listings*

(Also, didn't read the fic, that's why no commenty on it. :D)
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: August 10th, 2010 06:18 pm (UTC) (Link)
I've heard it'll be airing in the US sometime in October, so watch your schedule.
malevolent73 From: malevolent73 Date: August 10th, 2010 08:22 pm (UTC) (Link)
I have to wait that long? *throws hands up* I can't win! ;)

I had to unfollow the sherlock comm, seriously. Couldn't cope with the amount of posts! Must be getting old.

I love your fic. Bless the Beeb for doing all their online marketing websites and keeping them in character! I particularly love Watson and Holmes's little comments on each other's blogs. Bond night!

I'm kind of enjoying the mad rush right now, although it's making getting work done ridiculous, even though I'm just skimming a lot because most of the fic isn't my preference. I suspect traffic will either die down as things settle in, or some kind soul will set up a newsletter and collect links. It's good this is happening during the North American TV summer break though, or the combined traffic would be insane.

I love your fic.

Thanks! There's another over there I'll have to repost later. And I doubt those will be the last. :-)

I know I'm going to be checking back for any added comments during the hiatus. Just in case they do something tricksy.

I particularly love Watson and Holmes's little comments on each other's blogs. Bond night!

There's at least one gen/canon-possible fic I've seen out there for it on that fic meme too. Ooo. And there's a really good missing scene for 1.03 too. Arg. I'm at work so I haven't been saving links. *headdesk*
idioticonion From: idioticonion Date: August 11th, 2010 07:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
I love how Watson's blog is all cliff-hanger-y too! That's so cool. The commentors sound so worried!

And I need links for recommended fic. If you find either of those again, please do let me have them!
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: August 11th, 2010 10:32 pm (UTC) (Link)
Really, the fandom needs a newsletter and a categorized recs comm. There's a massive outpouring of creativity and information right now and no data triage or rudimentary indexing. I don't know anyone with the time and know how to do it though.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: August 12th, 2010 06:14 am (UTC) (Link)
Gen missing scene for close to the end of 1.03 here.
samalander_dawn From: samalander_dawn Date: December 11th, 2010 07:10 am (UTC) (Link)
LOL!

:D
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: December 14th, 2010 12:10 am (UTC) (Link)
First thing I ever wrote for Sherlock, I think.

:-)

You do great conversation fics! :-)
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: January 11th, 2011 04:03 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thank you! I've done a whole lot but they're mostly in another fandom
