I think the "new" Holmes/Watson fandom (over at [livejournal.com profile] holmeswatson09) is a little bit awesome. Because the fans are able to take this wall-banging idiocy and create dry discussions, clever mocking and outright glee. Take this comment for example:

But by focusing oh possible homosexual subtext like this, Ms. Plunket is ignoring a far more important issue! There was absolutely no racist, pro-Imperialist, or anti-Mormon rhetoric in the movie at all! Clearly it was an unfaithful adaption, made with no respect to the author's original intentions, and should be pulled from the theaters immediately.

or why not this one:

No guys. Guys. We should be happy about this. Since she's a crazy with no power, her attempt to get rid of the amazing subtext in the movies will most likely cause Guy Ritchie to create more subtext in the next one. Just to rub it in her face.

Hopefully Guy Ritchie is that kind of person.

Fandom, how I love thee.

Another conversation I had with my brother today:

Him: What if Marvel made a comic about Sherlock Holmes?
Me: Say what?
Him: It would be, like, Super Sherlock, solving crimes while flying through London in a trench coat*.
Me: Marvel would probably take a shot at it, if they could. But it just wouldn't work, you know? Sherlock Holmes is realistic, Marvel is... well, Marvel, they're just not compatible.
Me: ... Unless the Avengers were sent by mistake into Sherlock Holmes' world, then I suppose it could work.
Him: Dimension travel?
Me: Yeah.
Me: And it would take Holmes 0.2 seconds to deduce that they were super-humans.
Him: ...
Me: Well, they wouldn't be in costume, duh. That'd be too obvious.
Him: Spiderman would definitely say "Elementary, my dear Watson."
Me: That quote is not cano——!
Him: No, I know, but he'd still say it.
Me: ...Yeah. And Holmes would turn to Watson and say something like "Ah, yes, your romanticized accounts of our cases."
Him: Who else?
Me: Tony.
Him: Oh, God.
Me: Tony would totally nerdgasm.
Him: Definitely.
Me: And he'd immediately start tinkering with something. Steam punk!
Him: Yes, steam punk!
Him: He'd build a steam-driven Iron Man suit in no time flat, and probably a computer as well.
Me: Probably. And then he'd geek out with Holmes over—— Oh, God, imagine Tony and Holmes by the chemical set or whatever, both in nerd-mode.
Him: Things would explode.
Me: Definitely. And Steve would just shake his head.
Him: Together with Watson.
Him: They're pretty alike, aren't they, Steve and Watson?
Me: Both long-suffering friends of eccentric nerds, yeah.
Him: Friends? [raises eyebrow] Oh, well. They could bond over that while Tony and Holmes target practice indoors.


* = This conversation took place shortly after I'd, er, informed my brother that trench coats have no place whatsoever in Victorian England.

Good morning/day/afternoon/night/life/Armageddon, this is Anna's Brain's PA speaking.

We're glad to inform you that after weeks of reconstruction, things are finally up and running again. There has been some major changes in Anna Tower, however, and we hope visitors will not become too confused by them.

As some of you may remember, apart from the lobby and the department "Random Obsessions" on the 4th floor, all floors were dedicated to heathen Harry Potter worship.
The new Anna Tower still has the heathen worship as its main fuction, but two of the top floors are currently being rebuilt to accommodate shrines for the worship of Marvel's The Avengers and Iron Man. "Random Obessions" has also gained two permanent departments: "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" and "Robert Downey Jr."

Old regulars need not to worry. Despite these changes, the remaining ten floors are still in the exact same condition as they were before the reconstuction. After all, Harry Potter holds over 50% of the shares.

PM from the CEO: Yes, this means my hiatus is officially over. Also, I'm setting up base in the Marvel Adventures and IM: The Movie 'verses, because they are pretty and cracky and non-angsty and I like them.
And no, just because I've changed my default icon into an Iron Man one doesn't mean I'm defecting from Harry Potter. It's just, you know, the arc reactor? Shiny.

Nope, I'm still on hiatus. Just thought I'd give some signs of life and a quick update of what's been going on.


Dear Self, )

Hullo, everyone!

Sorry for disappearing for a week just like that; I had an unusually mild case of PMS, so I wasn't feeling very sociable, but now I'm back. ♥

So what did I do during this period, apart from indulging in self-pity and chocolate? Getting obsessed with American fake-news-slash-satire shows, of course! *headdesk*
Allow me to explain… )

Two fic recs. (Oi, a HP one, folks!) )

What else? Hm… Well, I'm working on a (very belated) journal-entry where I'll show my poor attempts at painting. Should be ready for posting… soonish. Hopefully.

Otherwise, I'm actually pondering if I should change my journal layout. I still want something spacious and mostly-white, but perhaps along with sky-blue or maybe even red? Not pink, in any case. I'm also considering going through my icons and do some thorough cleaning. Is this something worth considering or should I just drop it?

Also. Since I can't have a credit card until I'm legal (i.e. eighteen) is there any way of paying for another year at LJ without actually having to transfer money from a plastic card? Like, something along the lines of SellYourSoul.com or something like that?

Ménage à 3.

Busty blondes, spunky indie-girls, lovably camp gay men, virginal geeks, hoyay, lesyay, fangirls and fanboys of both, a universe operating by the laws of Rule of Funny and Everyone Is (Relatively) Bi. Good times! ♥ (Note: Not… really SFW, no, I wouldn't say so.)


On another note: I have in a stroke of sheer genius managed to stress myself to the point that I didn't even go to sleep last night. Which means that I've been up for more than 24 hours straight now. Huh, a new record for me, that. In a way, it's actually quite comfortable; my body's not feeling restless any more, and my mind seems to finally have stopped being revved up for once in my life. On the other hand, I feel a bit dizzy and my moods swings are even more inexplicable and sudden than usual. I think I'll eat a quick brunch (it's almost noon here) and then I'll see if I can get some sleep. Please excuse any typos and disconnected sentences in this post, please.
(Why, no, I still haven't settled down after that trip. Took longer than I thought it would. Huh. [[info - personal] bell, I’m so sorry I haven't gotten back to you yet. I promise I will as soon as I stop feeling like a stray kite caught in the air currents!])


The [livejournal.com profile] bigbangblackout have finally sent out their assignments. I've read "my" fic and, without giving the story away, I must say that I'm happy, because I really like it. :D It'll be fun to illustrate!


Yeah, so, er. Well, don't be surprised if I show up a bit irregularly and/or act oddly for the next few days, alright? ♥
