keladry_lupin: (Starry Night)
This is "You've Been Crying."

Pic Youve Been Crying shrunk

I participated under the name [ profile] rampaging_panda at [ profile] holmestice. [ profile] sc010f was my recipient, so I chose her Mycroft/Lestrade fic All That You Build, All That You Break to illustrate. A larger version, picture details, and disclaimer are available at DeviantArt here.

I also received a lovely fic this round: Singularity. (Though I don't know who wrote it yet; the mods are having trouble with coding, so they said we could go ahead and act like the Big Reveal had happened. I'll edit as soon as I have a name so I know who to thank properly.) Very nice astronomy metaphor, and it's John-centric, which makes me think the author knows me. Or else I just lucked out!
keladry_lupin: (Yay (Martin))
Am I a lucky woman or what?! [ profile] pythia_delphi wrote AND drew The Ethernet Chronicles from one of my prompts. It is so much better than anything I imagined might come out of that prompt. If you haven't read it yet, please do. I guessed it was [ profile] pythia_delphi from her artwork, because I've fangirled her stuff at DeviantArt for a few years now. So you can imagine my delight; thank you!

I must confess, I am rather proud of this one: Master and Apprentice. Details and babbling and stuff. )

Thanks also to the mods for all the work they put in so everything goes smoothly for the rest of us!
keladry_lupin: (Yeah! (Dara))
I haven't smiled this much in weeks. My [ profile] sshg_exchange gift posted earlier this week, and I finally had time to read and properly appreciate it. And what a gift it is!

Title: The Ethernet Chronicles
Author: Temporarily Disillusioned
Rating: PG-13, for profanity and innuendo
Warnings: Post-DH, EWE, Character Non-Death (Severus Snape, Fred Weasley and Vincent Crabbe), some good-natured Ron-bashing, some not so good-natured Molly bashing, characters possibly OOC.
Genre: Comedy, Farce, Fluff, Friendship, Romance
Summary: Post Vold-War II, the Wizarding World has adopted a new-fangled notion: blogging!
Word Count: 20,074
Author's Note: This fic is based on the kind of entries found in the BBC blogs made for the characters of the TV show Sherlock, as per the prompt. I have also incorporated formatting elements of LJ, Google Buzz, GChat, etc. to best suit the narrative arc; however, no prior knowledge of the TV show or its associated blogs is necessary. For fans of the show, there may be a couple of subtle nods to Sherlock. Hugs and smooches to my fantabulous beta [name redacted], for her super-lightning-fast beta work and stupendous suggestions which spruced this fic into ship-shape and Bristol fashion. Any remaining mistakes and inconsistencies are entirely due to my own obstinacy and/or laziness. My fervent admiration and gratitude also go to my coding wizard, [ profile] scatteredlogic. I also owe several life debts to the Mods for their immense patience, forbearance and generosity while I wibbled, whined, whinged and went well over the submission deadline. And finally, huge, heartfelt thanks go to [ profile] keladry_lupin for an absolutely amazing prompt which grabbed me by the horns and grew into monstrous proportions. I do hope this is something like what you envisaged, and that you enjoy it at least as much as I enjoyed wrestling it into submission.
Disclaimer: I don’t own 'Harry Potter' or 'Sherlock', and I make no money off this venture.
Original Prompt: Write a blog. It could be a You've Got Mail or The Shop around the Corner scenario, or just the blog (including friends' comments) of either Severus or Hermione as their relationship evolves from whatever it was (you choose) into a friendship and/or romance. Entries of irrelevant stuff (like the shopping, hobbies, and other commenters' replies) would be a hoot, though I realize that might make it a bit too time consuming. I got the idea from [a] Sherlock (BBC) AU fanfic, though I'm not asking for anything that detailed.

Me again. As if the laughs and romance weren't enough, there's some beautiful art embedded within the fic. Please read and review if you haven't already!

keladry_lupin: (Walking in the Rain)
And I have a list.

1. [ profile] holmestice project is going well.

2. Rain's coming!

3. I got my flu shot yesterday, so that's one less thing to worry about now.

4. COWS!!! ([ profile] stupid_drawings updated her Road Trip series of very funny Sherlock BBC fics.)

5. I got rid of several dozen old books, CDs, and DVDs and got a free lunch when Mom and Mimi came to Orange County Wednesday. I got to see her and the baby, and the hobbit hole has less stuff in it. Win-win.

6. See's is coming to my neighborhood. (I really shouldn't be happy about this one.) *wicked grin*

Happy weekend, y'all!
keladry_lupin: (Might Be Dangerous)
I laughed out loud when I read this one yesterday and laughed again when I reread it tonight. Go read it and laugh:

Spot the Loony by [ profile] gardnerhill
Rating: PG (language)
Characters: BBC Sherlock Holmes, John Watson, Sally Donovan
Summary: The title is from a Monty Python sketch.
Warnings: Cop mouth. Some abuse of an invasive non-native species.
Word Count: 300

I love that the author took a throwaway line from The Great Game and turned it into this. Poor Sally!

And I'm happy dancing tonight because an LJ user asked if Danny Boyle's Frankenstein would be released on DVD. Last I'd heard, the answer was no, but that's changed to a probably. It may take some time, but I will be all over it if this happens.
keladry_lupin: (Default)
First of all, we have The Detective, by [ profile] lotherington.
Characters: John Watson, Sherlock Holmes
Summary: John Watson was seven years and three months old when he first met His Raggedy Detective. He wasn’t expecting the bright red telephone box to crash land in his back garden in the middle of the night, but then, who ever expected such a silly thing to happen in the first place?
Disclaimer: Sherlock and Doctor Who belong to The Moff, Godtiss and the BBC. This is just for fun.
Rating: PG
Contains: Brief mention of alcoholism, a bit of choice language.
Word Count: ~5000

And then people make fanart for it, including this gem with the Detective in RDJ!Sherlock's clothes and this one with baby!Watson in Arthur Dent pyjamas.

And then, [ profile] lotherington writes the angstiest sequel ever: Six Wishes.
’Verse: The Detective
Fandom: Sherlock, Doctor Who
Characters: John Watson
Summary: Six times that John Watson wished The Detective would come back.
Rating: G
Word Count: ~2,000

There might be more on the way, too!
keladry_lupin: (Giggling (Stephen))
I've been giggling over this one for the last several minutes, so I'm sharing it with you guys:

Title: The Christmas Box
Author: [ profile] carenejeans
Pairing: Sherlock/John
Rating: G
Warnings: Fruitcake
Word count: 1,670
Summary: "It is a singular thing, but I find that a concentrated atmosphere helps a concentration of thought. I have not pushed it to the length of getting into a box to think, but that is the logical outcome of my convictions." -- Sherlock Holmes, in "The Hound of the Baskervilles"

I love that the thought even occurs to John in the first place. I love that he goes through with the idea. And I love that Sherlock has it figured out by the time he gets home and acts accordingly:

keladry_lupin: (Yeah! (Dara))
When [ profile] talesofsnape offered me a ficlet for my birthday, I asked for Severus, Hermione, and a telescope. I got so much more. We got so much more; that's the lovely thing about gift art and fics: it's a present for everyone. Go look at The Granger Solution! It's complete in four chapters (about 22,000 words), slightly not work safe, full of tension, flirting, wit, and banter. It's so good!

As if that wasn't enough, my TARDIS socks arrived yesterday, thanks to the talented [ profile] ariadne1. I need to finish the embroidery -- I hope I'm up to the task; I've never embroidered anything knitted before -- but they look fantastic already! I can't wait to finish them and show them off! I'll have Phil take a photo once they're done.
keladry_lupin: (Sad (Nine and Rose))
Well, I had a lazy morning. The feet ached enough that I couldn't be arsed to go to the supermarket to buy bay leaves, so I did without. The chicken stock won't suffer; by the time I was through, three carrots, one and a half onions, and several stalks of celery gave their lives to the process. This is gonna be the best chicken and dumplings ever.

I finished Through the Looking Glass this morning, too. Alice's stories are insane, but I really liked her adventures. I'll try to write a coherent review tomorrow.

I did make it to Jerad's memorial and found out lots of really fantastic things about him, which makes me even more upset that I didn't have the opportunity to see him perform and that I didn't have the time to get to know him better. It was a lovely get-together, and over fifty people showed up. I expected to see Phil's friends Scott and Mary, but I also saw Bill and Nell, who are from the play reading group. An unexpected delight was Rose, who played Queen Eleanor in The Lion in Winter twice last year, and she even recognized me! She acted with Jerad once, and they were friends for about ten years.

I'd committed to be the stage manager for a couple of abridged Shakespeare plays with Scott directing, but that project has been put on the shelf. Jerad had performed the Shakespeare one-acts with Scott before, and I think Scott's retiring the project indefinitely because Jerad's gone. Scott and Mary saw something else last night that lit a fire under his butt, so we may do something completely different later this year, but for now, I'm free to spend more time at the Mysterium. I e-mailed Marla to let her know, because I really want to learn as much as I can about all the behind-the-scenes stuff of theater as well as performing again. I think she's going to start me in box office, and I'm perfectly happy to donate my time in exchange for an education. That's how apprenticeships work, right?

I was supposed to go to a church thing tonight, but my entire body is in an uproar for a few different reasons, so I'm giving myself the night off. Phil's there, so there goes my chance to see him today; BOO. (He was at work during the memorial.) I'll put Inception in the DVD player and then reread a Sherlock fanfic I read a few weeks ago that was a crossover. It was really very interesting, but I couldn't remember all the rules from the movie, so this will refresh my memory. If you're interested in a Sherlock BBC/Inception one-shot, here's the fic rec:

Title: I Deduce In My Sleep
Fandoms: Sherlock (BBC) and Inception
Characters/Pairing: Sherlock/John (implied), plus Ariadne, Arthur, and Cobb
Rating: PG-13
Summary: John Watson doesn't quite recognize the agitated man in his dream screaming about idiots, but he knows that he's important somehow.

Happy Saturday night and Sunday morning, y'all. ♥
keladry_lupin: (Cat and Quilt)
I love it when Boo-Cat arches his back and stretches, straining his face so his whiskers pouf forward and the tip of his tongue sticks out. But this is the first time I heard him grunt. Just a little, tiny Nnghh before he released the stretch. It was adorable.

Also, I've found a Sherlock crossover fic where Gregory House is Sherlock's biological father. This is my new canon. (I'll rec the fic when it's complete; it's up to three chapters out of a predicted five so far.) The scene where Wilson and Watson hide from House and Holmes -- *busts out laughing* -- is hilarious and made me squee with delight. And the author uses some really nice icons, too.

Bought some chocolates from a niece's fundraiser, and they weren't what I thought they'd be. So I'm experimenting with them in a chocolate chip cookie recipe; hiding them inside the dough, squashing them on top, chopping them into bits and mixing them in. They don't have as much flavor as semisweet chips do, but it's still pretty good.

Good night, all.

Edit: I shouldn't have talked about a fic without providing a link, so here it is:

Title: In The Genes
Summary: A diagnostician and a detective must join forces to solve a mystery that threatens both their lives.
Crossover: Sherlock and House M.D.
Rating: PG (for swearing)
Genre: drama and a bit of angst

Again, it is a WIP with at least two chapters to go, and the author's updates are slow, so don't say I didn't warn you.
keladry_lupin: (Fanfic Means No One Dies (Severus))
We're on Day Four of the [ profile] fangirl_tour, and things are coming along nicely. I posted my entry today, and it can be found here. I once again used fanart as dividers in between recs (I'm not the only one to have done so), so there are a dozen artists featured there, too. Severus/Hermione got the lion's share of my recs because that's what I read most often, but there's some other stuff in there, including Jeeves and Wooster, Doctor Who, Torchwood, Star Trek (reboot), and Quantum Leap. A few are crossovers.

keladry_lupin: (Nine (lemming))
It's the Monday List of Happiness with a fic rec tagged on for good measure!

1. I'm working the election on April 13 with Phil. It's going to be a very long day, but I believe him when he says they have a good time, and extra money is always a good thing!

2. I keep trying variations on a recipe I first made a month or two ago, and they always turn out delicious. Nom nom nom.

3. LOL at Dara O'Briain's drinking game on the stand-up DVD I bought a few weeks ago. He and a buddy watched the show, and every time Dara said a key phrase, they had to have a beer or a shot, and they were completely pissed by the end of it.

4. Singing, singing, singing: the choir in our congregation is really good, as is a combined choir I'm participating in. The music is gorgeous. We're all revved up for Easter!

5. Leap of Faith, a Doctor Who fic rec: )
keladry_lupin: (Fangirling (Rhino))
Fangirl moment: I can't stop reading Aurette's WIP. On days she doesn't update, I reread the latest chapter or two. Or I just read the whole thing (37,000 words so far). She's up to seven chapters with a subtle and wicked cliffhanger, and I am dying to know what's next. Speculation/spoilers under the cut, so beware. )

Story info, if you're interested:

keladry_lupin: (Christmas (cookies))
For the last six months, I have been enjoying Kirk/McCoy fic. I never liked Kirk/Spock, even though I can see slashy moments all over the movies and the episodes I've seen. I always thought Spock and Nyota were meant for each other, but it wasn't until the latest movie came out that I finally found someone to put Jim with, and that's Bones. (They're both sooooo pretty.)

Slashy fic rec for Christmas!

Faithful Friends
Rating: teen
Ship: Kirk/McCoy (background Spock/Uhura)
Summary: They're stranded on an ice planet, in a tomb, for crying out loud, with injuries, limited supplies, and malfunctioning communicators. It's still the best Christmas Jim's ever had.

Maybe I should do the Twelve Fics of Christmas or something, but I couldn't wait another week to point you all in the direction of a lovely hurt/comfort scenario.

ApollinaV wrote a delightful one-shot called Hufflepa. Look at these photos (PDamian's idea) and then go read it:

Summary: The new Hufflepuff mascot badger imprints on Snape instead of Sprout and won’t stop following him around.
keladry_lupin: (Default)
The Next Time You Say Forever

Fandom: Star Trek: Reboot
Rating: Adult (sex, violence, and language)
Ships/Characters: Kirk/McCoy, Spock/Uhura, Joanna McCoy, Spock Prime
Summary: After his ex-wife's death, McCoy is forced to leave the Enterprise to look after his teenage daughter. Under normal circumstances, this would be the end of…whatever it is he has with Kirk that's more than friendship, but less than what he wants. But the universe has other intentions.
Sequel to: In A Moment Close To Now and Heading Straight For A Fall. (The second one creeps me out a bit, but it helps to read it before going on to the main story.)

It's complete in six chapters.
keladry_lupin: (Severus Winks)
I'll be pimping it on the [ profile] hgss_digest tonight (if my mother doesn't kill me first), but for those of you not following that community, I'm reccing it here, too. Go read Grangerous' Heartbeat this instant, please.

Summary: Snarky Snape and grumpy Granger have a case to solve for their work at the Department of Magical Law Enforcement. A story written for Lady Karelia, and filled with the things she loves: romance, music, cheese and dinner parties.

Rated PG. Romantic action/adventure. It's brilliant and fun and unexpectedly sweet, and complete in one chapter.

purty fic!

keladry_lupin: (Smirk (Spock))
[ profile] salr323 has finished posting Miscommunication, a Star Trek reboot/Pride and Prejudice hybrid, starring Spock and Uhura. It's PG for most of the fic and then earns a mature rating (nothing explicit) in the last chapter. It's about 42,000 words in all, divided into twelve chapters. I'm pretty sure there are links from the bottom of each part to the next, but just in case one is missing, here are the links to the five parts:
part one
part two
part three
part four
part five

It's gorgeous. And it's fun to see the parallels of overall situations, like three tiny spoilers for the fic ). Even though those moments are recognizable, they're also seamless, and it's only after I've read the fic a second time that I recognize some of the P&P parallels.

keladry_lupin: (Joy)
[ profile] awwol is really picking up speed, and it's absolutely delightful to see Minerva and Molly strike out on their own! I wish everyone who's going to Az a safe and pleasant journey, especially Minerva and Molly, who are driving across America to and from Azkatraz, the lucky bitches.

Be sure to read the comments as well as the entries. This is hilarious.

I just hope Severus and Hermione don't kill each other before they realize they're quite capable (and probably willing, on some level) of living snarkily ever after.
keladry_lupin: (Brandon and Elinor)
[ profile] voxangelus wrote a ficlet off a prompt of mine and posted it at [ profile] hpcon_envy, and you can find it here.

My prompt was Brandon and Elinor Snape and Trelawney and a tea set. Bittersweet and worksafe.
