Jan 27th

I think I've finally found a truly worthy nemesis! He's a British guy, so, yeah, the commute's going to be hell, but he's some kind of science detective or something. Like a one-dude CSI:Britain.

He's got a blog -- a text blog, pft -- and I've issued a challenge. Or um, a comment. Something. Actually, I'm playing the 'deep cover' angle. He's looking for an apartment so I told him I had a spare room. I called it a 'flat' so he wouldn't know I wasn't British. Very important to know these things. See, if he takes me up on it, I can go to Britain and, uh, set up a trap or something. The plan needs work. He seems to get bored a lot, so maybe he'll take me up on it.

I'd be a perfect nemesis for him, really. We'd be matching wits! His powers of deduction versus my inventive genius!

I'm waiting for a really solid response before I move to Britain though. Sort of a commitment thing. Issues.

Laters!

Oh, this is just great. CSI:Britain Man has got a "roommate." And we all know what that's code for right? Uh hunh. You know it.

Sidekick.

I've been leaving threatening messages on his sidekick's blog because the quickest way to get a hero's attention is to go for the sidekick. It's only a matter of time until Sherlock responds to defend his "roommate". His sidekick seems to be set on defending himself though, but whatever. Sidekicks. Ha.

The sidekick whined about me not using capital letters and I told him he was a sheep tricked into following the rules of society. Who knows, maybe I can show Sherlock's new sidekick the flaws in the system and he'll join me instead. Probably not though, he seems kind of belligerent.

I'm taking the subtle, ominous approach with the commenting thing. Still working the 'lure him into a trap or something' plan, so more subtle than ominous but the ominous is totally there. It's just kind of hard to back up a direct threat from across the Atlantic. And the continent of North America... I wonder if Britain's closer by Pacific? Or over the pole? Ooo. Maybe I can get a rocket and-

Uh, gotta go, scheming to do!

Minsk. This Sherlock guy flew to Minsk for some jerk murderer, and he still won't answer me! His sidekick's taunting me too now. And he's a doctor too. The sidekick, not this one-man CSI guy, thing... whatever.

Look, I've got a lot to offer as a hero's nemesis! I have plots and... stuff... Oh! And experimental devices that might someday seriously inconvenience the world! See! Well, um, not this one, it's a hair-dryer I'm working on for Moist- but that's not important! I can be a threat! A global one! I'll get that rocket to work and build a hundred of them! A thousand! I'll show them!

There's some person using the name 'Anonymous' -- nice originality there. Not. -- who's also been commenting on Sherlock and sidekick-boy's blogs, and leaving coded messages. Which I could have done too, but I'm more of a... it's not my... Okay, so I didn't think of it first! But the codes are really basic stuff. I mean it was obvious the last one was a pigpen code, and Sherlock hadn't solved it yet, so I solved it and he won't even acknowledge me!

I'm putting some serious effort into this nemesis thing! The least he could do is mock me or something!

Apr 9th

So now he's got a nemesis. Moriarty. Great. Mr. Anonymous Kiddie Code himself. I hope they're very happy foiling each other. You have no idea what you're missing, Sherlock!

Poser.

I guess it's for the best, though. I mean really, a long-distance nemesis-ship never would have worked, and I have too many contacts and too much infrastructure built up here to emigrate. Immigrate. Whatever. Plus the UK Evil League is run by some guy called Master something? Their approval rate for new villains is almost zero, so kind of a tough business to break into there. Unless you're some kind of robot, but that's just what I've heard. Y'know. Equal opportunities and all that. Just saying.

It doesn't matter though. I've found a local hero that's going to be even better as a nemesis than Sherlock would be! Captain Hammer. He's big, strong and stupid. Statistics show that opposites always work better in Villain-Hero nemesis-ships. Weak points matched with strong points, it only makes sense!

But right now I gotta go do laundry. Um. And by laundry I mean evil! Hoo ahaa haa hee...

I really gotta work on that laugh.

Thanks! It's been a while since I wrote any Horrible, so I'm glad he turned out okay.

It's actually the funniest thing I have read in years. You captured Dr Horrible's voice perfectly, I can even see NPH facial expressions. Bonus points for including the Master in it, that was fun!
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: August 14th, 2010 07:44 am (UTC) (Link)
Wow, thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Absolutely fab :D This is so my personal canon now.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: August 14th, 2010 07:45 am (UTC) (Link)
Thanks! It would be a very cracky canon, but there's nothing wrong with that! XD

Aw, thanks! Like I said above, it's been a while since I did any Horrible, so I'm glad he sounds okay.

GENIUS. BRILLIANT. MAGNIFICENT. STUPENDOUS. OTHER LARGE WORDS.

Your Dr. Horrible is spot on. Definitely adding this one to my memories.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: August 14th, 2010 07:47 am (UTC) (Link)
Thank you! \o/

Aw, thanks!

That was hilarious.
Poor Dr Horrible, it's so hard to find a good archnemesis nowadays.

Thank you for sharing this very fic with us.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: August 14th, 2010 08:45 am (UTC) (Link)
Happy to share and glad you liked it!

Ahahahaha, this is pure brilliance! Suddenly the blog comments make much more sense...

Also, so very very many bonus points for the Master cameo! XD
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: August 14th, 2010 04:19 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thank you! I wrote this before going back to check the blog comments and that one about capital letters made me go, 'Holy crap, that does sound like Dr. Horrible!'
idioticonion From: idioticonion Date: August 14th, 2010 10:57 am (UTC) (Link)
Just awesome, as all your fics are. Love it. Your Horrible-voice is so perfect, and I loved how you cleverly weaved it around those messages left on the blogs.

Loved the nod to the evil laugh at the end.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: August 14th, 2010 04:21 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thank you! I was looking forward to what you thought of this one since I know you're familiar with both sides of the crossover and the online material. :-D

Of course the Master is in charge of the UK Evil League of Evil! Suddenly everything makes sense.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: August 14th, 2010 04:22 pm (UTC) (Link)
Doesn't it just? XD

Sidekick.


This is brilliant and filling my innards with glee and slow bubbling laughter!

Hooray, it worked! :-D

This is HILARIOUS. XD And the blog tie-ins are amazing!
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: August 14th, 2010 04:26 pm (UTC) (Link)
Aren't they though! That's one of the things I like about the BBC; they don't seem to do anything by halves. They've added a few things to them since the last episode too, it might be worth checking in every so often over the hiatus.
