why isn't it the weekend already?!? [Nov. 11th, 2010|10:51 pm]

Via seperis: Entirely Covered in Your Invisible Name by wordstrings is an awesome Sherlock fic that is a great example of fanworks that can get a person to want to consume the original work. Because now I want to watch the original work much much more than I'd previously wanted to (see, previously I sort of wanted to watch it, now I totally do want to watch it). I just have to figure out how to get the episodes....But I digress. The fic is, in a word, fabulous (It's also awesome, but I'd already used that term earlier--I'm trying not to repeat myself too much). It's rather frenetic and there's sex and obsession. And it's really quite funny.

I was devastated when I left for work this morning to find that I'd forgotten the Fujimi book I'm currently reading at my bedside (placed there last night after reading for too long too late into the night) to read at lunch (and to sneak read at my desk). I had to attend a meeting of the local chapter of the professional society I'm a sadly unengaged member of after work (the words "professional society" thrills me as it makes me feel adult and all that, but I think feeling thrilled about being adult and all that for being in a "professional society" belies the notion that I am adult and all that...) so I came home late. I was all set to read more Fujimi before eventually falling asleep (too late again), but instead I checked my flist and got sucked into the above fic. And am fighting the urge to a) find more fic to read right now and b) find the episodes to watch right now. So I think I will avoid temptation to do anything else foolish and not even touch the Fujimi. ;_;

Have you read the previous stories? Because there are 3 stories (2 short and 1 longer) in this series... it explains even better Sherlock's obsession with John and with everything...

If you haven't gotten the episodes yet, they are all available for free online watching here on http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/masterpiece/sherlock/watch.html until Dec 7th. That the best legal option I think, except for waiting them to be aired. I myself went for the HD torrents so... well XD.

Thanks for the pointer to PBS. Unfortunately the dang thing kept getting stalled, so I found downloads instead.
