 I would say 'late night' but I am bound to be told that the night is yet young, etc etc.

so here is: everything I can remember about Thursday night, which was the Sherlock screening & Q&A.

Thursday, 7.30 to... some time later )


mini raffles rave aw yeah )



a very little bit of flailing about derren brown )

so those are some things aren't they.
bbakerb: (bender says YESSSS)
am back in london, land of central heating and fast internet, have never felt so tender towards sweet pretty London as I do now

ETA: there was a tin of anchovies in my bed and I have no readily accessible pyjamas. New Year's Resolutions: acquire more pyjamas, check bed for anchovies. (The tin was unopened.)

a) Here are the fic exchange stories I wrote:

1. My [livejournal.com profile] holmestice  story, for [livejournal.com profile] gabe1990 , SO MUCH FUN, so ludicrous though

The Giant Rat Of Sumatra, For Which The World Is Not Yet Prepared

which is 2500 words-ish, Sherlock/John established relationship, R. Post-case. Is that a Thing? (It is now.) I think my favourite comment was someone who said 'everyone's having so much FUN in this', I thought to myself, 'yeah I write stories where people have fun!' In my head this story is gen. But I was worried people would read it and not get that in my head they were together - 'damn,' I thought, 'better write in a blowjob just to make sure!' so er I did.

2. My [livejournal.com profile] yuletide  story, for [livejournal.com profile] girl_called_sun  - for Whites, a BBC sitcom about a restaurant kitchen, which had Alan Davies as head chef Roland White, Katharine Parkinson as his restaurant manager, a bunch of brilliant people in it all around. Oh I loved writing this so much, I love this show so much - and it doesn't even have a wikipedia page, as far as I can tell. (ETA how do I use wikipedia? Literally quite badly. It does too have a wikipedia page, ok have failed basic internet skills will have to find a new low to sink to)

Pancakes Day

2300 wordsish. TEAM GEN! \o/ Not that these people work particularly well as a team. Ensemble gen. And it really IS gen, and not even gen-with-blowjobs. (If you're curious - as well as Whites, I volunteered to write for Raffles, Stalky & Co, Adam Adamant Lives!, and Misfits; they all had stories written for them except Stalky. I had something loosely planned for Raffles and AAL!, and had a ton of Thoughts about Misfits, and was totally terrified of getting Stalky.)

b) New Year's Resolutions: fanfic fanfic fanfic. But! More importantly!: I have decided to learn to whistle. I have never been able to whistle, but I decided to learn yesterday morning, and I have been steadily working at it since then (and irritating everyone around me) and I can SORT OF BASICALLY MAKE A NOISE. Next: TUNES. After that: ATTRACTING TAXIS, and then sending them away because actually I take the tube.

c) yuletide yuletide yuletide? Yuletide yuletide. Yuletide! Yuletide. I am not done.
bbakerb: (holmes)
So I was going to be sneaky and not mention that I did a pinch-hit for [livejournal.com profile] holmestice until the reveal, but what the hell, someone who is JUST WONDERFUL has made me a thank-you fic, Not-Quite Mother Of Mine, and a wallpaper - for ME! for my VERY OWN! I really wasn't expecting anything, it must have been terrible short notice - and the fic is about MRS HUDSON! and is a DELIGHT! - and the wallpaper is beauteous! I am filled with happy. I feel like I've WON Holmestice, I know that's not the point. THANK YOU KIND PERSON.

I'll say now that if you by some strange chance happened to guess what story I wrote in either of the anon fic exchanges I've taken part in - [livejournal.com profile] yuletide  and [livejournal.com profile] holmestice  - or certain *key factors* in my [livejournal.com profile] sherlockmas  assignment - you probably deserve some sort of prize.

Also: do you want to read an excitingly lengthy discussion between me and [livejournal.com profile] strangeumbrella  about so many things, but most importantly The Private Life Of Sherlock Holmes, the film, the marvellous melancholy film? and some other Holmes stuff, and Merlin, etc - well then, go to the comments to this post here, marvel at our disregard for comment limits, I am amazed by the length of them.

So: now I talk about Misfits! In an attempt to avoid making like three entries in a row. Oh you crazy mixed-up show that you are, Misfits, light of my life, fire of my loins. There are three whole episodes to talk about, what happened? The passage of time happened, that's what.

misfits misfits misfits )


lastly: I have a last.fm account now. Basically everybody show me your last fms so I can add you.

I'm sitting in a coffee shop and it's icy cold even INDOORS and just diagonally opposite is a man who either is Alastair Campbell or looks very very like him. AM TRYING NOT TO LOOK AT HIM, IT IS NOT A SOCIALLY OK THING TO DO, STARING, EVEN TO GLANCE MORE THAN ONCE DRAWS ATTENTION TO YOU a bit more than it should

I know no one watches it but my faaaavourite currently airing (apart from Misfits) show, Edwardian Farm, was on last night! They did Edwardian-style tin mining and copper scavenging and wassailed an apple tree! I know a lot of people find Ruth Goodman, one of the historical re-enacting presenters, irritating - but I think it's really NICE to have someone so keen and so clearly massively excited about living like an Edwardian. And there is one person called Peter and one called Alex and no I cannot prevent myself from slashing them, not when they wear such nice waistcoats and look like they're having so much FUN. Goddd what am I on

SPEAKING OF MISFITS: HOW IS IT SO GREAT, am talking about last week because otherwise I will forget to, and tonight there is more. I love that in the space of about a fortnight it has become a legitimate THING that PEOPLE ACTUALLY TALK ABOUT.

spoilers )


NOW FOR MERLIN: I was alas not made particularly happy by that last episode. There were some awesome things in it -
