Being forced to play Lords of Waterdeep with my husband (and my husband’s husband) instead of working on my fic.

Trading one nerdy thing for another, really.

Both of them work in the same cinema at 221B Baker Street, one is a projectionist, the other is a ticket seller. They’ve never really talked to each other, well, not until Sherlock finally went up and impressed John with his extensive knowledge of film. “That… was amazing," John says.

My first job was actually at a cinema, though…

Adorable Johnlock fanart, but why is no one talking about the cat taking in a show all by itself? Morica(r)ty, perhaps?

Omg Marta I was so caught up in the Johnlock cuteness I didn’t notice. I love it!

i have to say a thing.

i don’t normally do this, but i feel like it needs to be said. i’ve, on many occasions, seen posts going around that say things like “every fic every has x” or “why do fic authors always do y,” etc.

i’m sure the same thing happens to artists, and…

I love this. emmagrant01 of “A Cure for Boredom” fame discusses criticism and expectations of conformity in fanfic writing and the community. As if there are unwritten rules to which the creative process must adhere.

It’s incredible how one can pour their heart into something, a labor of love, and all it takes is one person blasé enough to rock your foundation and make you question your own craft. I write for myself as much as I do for others; what I want to read and hope others want as well.

Bless this.

An edit I was inspired to make. All work done on this photo is my own but the quote is credited to: deathfrisbeeofbakerstreet on www.archiveofourown.org on her amazing Johnlock story “Chemical Bonding”.

You are so stinking lovely! I’m thrilled you enjoyed my story and even more thrilled it inspired you to create something awesome!

read some of your meta posts... so I have a ? ...if Sherlokc knew Mary was a liar why did he trust her...?
deathfrisbeeofbakerstreet deathfrisbeeofbakerstreet Said:

I assume, sweet nonny, that you mean the infamous “liar” deduction Sherlock made in TEH. The shortest answer I can give you is this:

EVERYBODY LIES.

As such, it would not be unusual for Sherlock to trust someone despite such a deduction. Especially someone that John loves and trusts.

Sherlock lies. John lies. Everybody lies.

This Wolverine cup is protecting my identity.

A bumblebee is waiting outside my car and we have a long history of hatred.

I’m going insane in this isolation. Gotta leave the car now.

If this is my last post… tell Benedict Cumberbatch I wanted The D.

There is no escape from this. 

Are you ready, Are you ready for this
Are you hanging on the edge of your seat
Out of the doorway the bullets rip
To the sound of the beat

Yeah…

New book!

In August 1891, two men of science crossed paths in Berlin in what would be an episode of historic magnitude. Their encounter would change the trajectory of each of their lives and begin to transform the course of science itself.

The first is Robert Koch, a medical doctor turned bacteriologist. Though today Koch’s name is little known outside his native Germany or university microbiology departments, he was, in his day, the most celebrated scientist on earth. With a single-mindedness bordering on righteousness, he pursued the idea that many diseases are caused by germs and that those germs can be isolated and identified. Koch’s great nemesis would tuberculosis; it was the province of his greatest discover and his most tragic disgrace.

Through a quirk of history, Koch’s undoing was put in motion by another physician: Arthur Conan Doyle. Conan Doyle is famous to us today as the creator of Sherlock Holmes, but his brush with Koch took place while he was still a practicing doctor in England; literature was then only a diversion. Like Koch, Conan Doyle saw the world through a scientific lens, one that informed his medical career and also, quite profoundly, his stories. It’s not too much to say that, without Robert Koch, and without this encounter, there may never have been a Sherlock Holmes as we know him.

For years, Koch and Conan Doyle’s story has merited, at most, a curious footnote, a coincidental intersection of two dissimilar biographies. But in truth, theirs was an historic if unwitting collaboration…though circumstances placed these men at odds, history might now consider them comrades, joined in a battle for science over superstition, for process over haste, for scrutiny over supposition, for data over dogma. What Koch accomplished in the laboratory, Conan Doyle appropriated in his literature.

Ultimately, both of their lives would be undone by the greatest killer of their time: tuberculosis.

If you love Sherlock Holmes, medical history or history in general, this is a great read.

You know you have a good husband when he lets you describe the gay sex scene you are writing in order to work out logistics of positioning.

And then he offers helpful tips.

Oh god. Today he asked questions. Let me imitate the positioning. He wasn’t just pretending to listen. #truelove

I love tumblr, but I always wish there was a better way to communicate directly. So here’s my damn email. I can chat on gmail if anyone is ever bored or lonely or whatever: threepatchfinalproblem@gmail.com

I’m also on: reddit and pinterest and of course AO3.

Weigh in, lovelies. Because I’m old and don’t know everything. Anyone have a better suggestion of direct chatting?
