It’s actually kind of fascinating how closely connected the memory is to the senses of smell and taste. For example, the smell of dried nail varnish reminds me of Marvel Comics and Iron Man in particular, because the time when I was the most obsessed by them coincided with when I started to paint my nails on a regular basis. The taste of Pepsi reminds me of Sherlock Holmes, since I started to buy it just before I went to the cinema, because I wanted something ~special~ to drink then. Cardamom reminds me of manga, because I was nuts about cardamom buns when I was twelve. And then there’s the soap in the bathroom downstairs, which drives me insane because it reminds me of something that I can’t put my finger on.

Why, yes, I am currently sleep-deprived. How are you all doing?

Ohmygod, I’m going to see Iron Man 2 this evening, Icanbarelycontainmyexcitement, I’ll even wear my cutest skirt!

I've changed my layout again.

What do you think? ♥

Sherlock Holmes was transformed when he was hot upon such a scent as this. Men who had only known the quiet thinker and logician of Baker Street would have failed to recognize him. His face flushed and darkened. His brows were drawn into two hard black lines, while his eyes shone out from beneath them with a steely glitter. His face was bent downward, his shoulders bowed, his lips compressed, and the veins stood out like whipcord in his long, sinewy neck. His nostrils seemed to dilate with a purely animal lust for the chase, and his mind was so absolutely concentrated upon the matter before him that a question or remark fell unheeded upon his ears, or, at the most, only provoked a quick, impatient snarl in reply.
The Boscombe Valley Mystery

No, Watson is not describing his and Holmes' sex life, but rather Holmes when he's about to crawl in the mud in search for clues.

Oh, how I love my canon.

"I mean to find her," said Sherlock Holmes. "I'm going through this house till I do find her."
"Where is your warrant?" [asked the criminal]
Holmes half drew a revolver from his pocket. "This will have to serve till a better one comes."
"Why, you are a common burglar."
"So you might describe me," said Holmes cheerfully. "My companion is also a dangerous ruffian. And together we are going through your house."
The Disappearance of Lady Frances Carfax

Pretty, pretty please, can this appear in the sequel? Because I can picture it so clearly in my mind; RDJ maniacally grinning with Hotson looming behind-beside him.

Also, a fic rec! Homo Ex Machina by [ profile] toft_froggy. It's a 14,000 words long piece of marvellous crack. I was writhing in laughter as I read it; it truly is a work of art.

So, what are you waiting for? *rubs hands*

I need to be cheered up. I'm having an ultra-important test in Maths tomorrow. I'm dead nervous.

See, there is a reason I love fandom and references, especially when mixed together. Yesterday I stumbled upon links, and one thing led to another, and I ended up peeking at Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead clips over at YouTube.

And ADKLJHNFDHGKDJGLSK. I mean, look at this:

THIS IS PURE LOVE, I TELL YOU. I'm already badgering dad to download the film for me, because for some unfathomable reason it isn't available in Sweden. (And because of a new, ignominious law here, the government is now allowed to track down downloaders and charge them, so I have to rely on dad and his knowledge of crafty illegal dowloading for now. *facepalm* And no, there's no legal way to get this film. Gods, I'm such a brat.)

You know, I think I'm so excited because this is exactly what I want to create, my artistic goal in life. Yeah, I want to make a story where two smoking hot men in their thirties spend their time faffing about, being superficially silly and verbal diarrhoea each other. Homoeroticism, either subtle or explicit, is of course a given. ♥

And Gary Oldman is looking amazing here, y/y? Only slightly darker hair-colour and curliness away from looking like an ickle Sirius Black. ♥

Alright, question:

I'm currently working on a long R/S fic, taking place post-Hogwarts, which is sort-of bittersweet and semi-plotty. However, I'm utterly stuck at how to bring Remus and Sirius together. The only thing I know is that I won't have them having fooled around for years already, and that Remus makes the first move in the end, because that's part of his arse-kicking persona and I simply love it when he does. But other than that, I'm lost.

I'd try to work this out for myself, but I've already struggled with this for weeks and I'm terrified of the getting-together scenario being "boring" and "common/non-protruding". I want some zest and originality, you know?

So, er, any ideas? ♥

Because if [ profile] roterhimmel can do it, then I can as well!


I think most of you know my kinks and squicks. Harry Potter fandom, MWPP or Teddy-centric, any genre, R as highest rating, no non-con or cutting. Other than that, you got it!
I'll try to keep these at ficlet-length, i.e. maximum wordcount being 500, and I will go no higher than 1,000; please keep that in mind. No epics and such. *g*

So, what are you waiting for? Prompt me! ♥

I've jumped on the bandwagon and created a community for my fics and art. It's called [ profile] anna_creations.

Things'll not be all that different; I will still post all my works here. I'll just link those entries to [ profile] anna_creations for the sake of convenience. Thus it'll be easier to find my fics and art, and if someone wants to follow those updates but be spared from my personal rantings, they can friend that community.

Easy, right? ♥

So, remember:
[ profile] anna_creations .. [ profile] anna_creations .. [ profile] anna_creations .. [ profile] anna_creations .. [ profile] anna_creations

I'm still trying to figure out what I'm doing, but I've signed up on Twitter, which [ profile] usomitai recommended. (Is it really that simple that you just type in what you're doing? Sounds... strange?) Anyhow. My name there is still anna_bm if anyone's interested.

On another note: I've just finished re-reading Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix for the first time in five years. (Well, technically I listened to it, but details, details~) It's much better than what I remembered, but the end still made me bawl, despite being prepared this time. I'm going to re-listen to PoA now to cheer up.

Oh, and Happy Belated New Year! ♥

It's snowing! \o/

Thank you Sweden, for your bloody cold climate and general BLARGHiness of winter! ♥
