Sherlock reading Keats? Yes, please.

Have you heard this clip of Benedict Cumberbatch reading Keats' "Ode to a Nightingale" yet? If not, click the link and press play--but be sure to remove your pants first, because it sounds so sexy, your gonads are going to explode in ecstasy.

You're welcome.

AND LO....

I have discovered Sparkle Text.

And now you may also do so here.

That is all. I'll probably go back to hiding from LJ/fandom for a few more months now. Carry on, know you are all loved. Ta.

Fic Rec: BBC Sherlock Shape-shifter WIP

Okay. Everyone in the fandom needs to jump on this fic by random_nexus if they haven't already. It's called "When the Impossible Refuses to be Eliminated," and so far it's up to 29 glorious chapters on the kink meme. Interesting twist on werewolves/shape-shifting. Excellent characterization. Adorable scenes. Intricate plot. Witty dialogue. Plausible fictional science. Fandom has dubbed werewolf Sherlock "Furrlock." It is just fabulous.

Read it already, goddamnit.

Kink memes ates mah brainz

I disappeared for a few days. Sorry. It's because I found the Sherlock BBC's kink meme archive.

Not my fault. I can quit any time I want. You can't prove a thing! *shifty eyes*

Fic Rec: BBC Sherlock

Excuse me, please.

If you enjoy the new Sherlock series, you should really read everything ever written in the fandom by irisbleufic .

For the few on this f-list who've known me for years and know I'm an editor in real life, y'all realize how rarely I endorse *everything* by any one writer, but really, she's got the characters down and has both excellent plot and pacing, not to mention great sexual and emotional tension. (I really enjoyed the whole Fearful Symmetry saga.)

Thank you for your attention; I now return you to your regularly scheduled LiveJournal.

Inception fic rec, Reciprocity

This hilarious fic by hesselives  is about Eames and Arthur one-upping each other with cracktastic gifts. It made me smile the whole time.

It's time I admit

That the Pennsylvania Dutch Market has made me its bitch. Today I bought rolls, apple-caramel-walnut pie, blackberry pie, pulled pork BBQ, and crack chicken pot pie. Do I need any of this? No. I cook every day. But I know if I go more than a week without something from their deli, I'll get the shakes. I'll contemplate taking a Greyhound up to PA just to harass nice folk in plainclothes and horse buggies for their baked goods. It's not right. It's not fair. And it's not changing any time soon, either. ;-p

Fic Rec: Inception, CATS AU

I have an unholy love for this fic. It's an AU crossover with the musical Cats, wherein Eames is Rum Tum Tugger and Arthur is Mr. Mistoffelees. Don't judge, just read it, it is delightful.

Inception fic rec

Hi there, practically non-existent friends list (so far)!

Um, so, here's my first fic rec (of what will be many) for this journal...

Everyone should read everything by gyzym  anyway, but in particular, this AU called I've got nothing left to do today but smile, where Arthur is a lawyer and Eames is the owner of a coffee shop was just... bliss. I had another horrible night due to rampant insomnia, but this fic brought me joy! I think you'll like it!!

Shit You Should Know About Me

Well, what can I tell you that you can't already glean from my Profile? I'm not quite sure what all would interest passersby, but I feel as though I should prep anyone who is thinking about friending me, so here goes:


Funny pictures and memes; recipes; craft stuff; lolcat- and failblog-esque macros; recommendations for books, movies, music, and fics; general blither-blather; and the occasional rant.

I'm an omnivore, and I love to cook (I have converted to mostly all organic foods), and so I might rant talk about the food industry too much from time to time. (If you're ever curious about this topic, I think renting Food, Inc. is a good place to start.)

I curse sometimes; when I do, I love to use the word "fuck," due to its grammatical versatility. That said, I use expletives for emphasis, not as verbal abuse--I love snark and pith, but meanness will not be tolerated here.


I am a liberal Democrat, but I always welcome respectful debate about anything--including politics--with reasonable, well-educated people. (Obviously, if you belong to the Tea Party, you are now excluded from debate on this journal.)

I'm down with all religions, and all mythologies interest me, but I dislike any dogma; RAmen.

I may be straight, but I adamantly support GLBT issues; homophobic flames will be treated as a request for me to play with you the way a cat swats at a shiny object dangled in front of its face--it will not end well for you, but by all means, amuse me.

It's my life-goal to leave the world a little better than I found it.

Wearing white shoes after Labor Day will always be a fashion faux pas, but I will defend to the death your right to make such a horrid, crass, terrible mistake choice.


Aside from cooking, I love to dance. I was raised on ballet and non-competitive ballroom. I'm currently all about Contra dancing.

I also enjoy martial arts, such as Ninjutsu (particularly Taijitsu, which is unarmed combat) and Capoeira. I'm hardly a badass; I just like taking classes that resemble dancing at the Y.

I'm a slash fan. Although I've been in many, many fandoms for over a decade under other names, I left that scene in order to take some time to deal with RL crises. This journal is a fresh start, I suppose. My current fandoms are BBC's Sherlock (John/Sherlock) and the movie Inception (Eames/Arthur).

Anything written by Michael Ondaatje is like an intellectual orgasm to me. Also, I may have an addiction to historical fiction... but I can quit any time I want, so it's fine... No, it's fine, everything's under control... I in no way have too many bookshelves or degrees because of it... *shifty eyes*

I consistently employ the em-dash, semicolon, and Oxford comma--and the later I use not solely because British accents are like ear-sex to me. ;-) I do so hope this does not jeopardize our friendship, but I understand certain kinds of punctuation--much like spices--are not to everyone's tastes.

I like to travel and have done so, extensively.

I enjoy learning new languages; I'm currently teaching myself Italian and American Sign Language.

I like disrobing a man in well-tailored suit. It gets me hot and bothered.

I am all about doing charitable work and donating time, materials, or money to various causes; the concept of Paying it Forward really rings true to me.

My Profile lists that I like cats, and I cannot imagine living in a home without one or half a dozen, but I love all animals. I have a huge soft spot for the ultra-intelligent Australian Shepherd, blue merles in particular.


It is entirely possible that I own too many sweaters. It is not possible that I don them and then fight crime yet.

Anything else you want to know, feel free to ask me. Also feel free to friend and unfriend at will and without explanation, and I'll do the same. Finally, feel free to get silly, wild, and crazy--I only ask that you play nice when you play here.
