Hullo, hullo. It's been almost a month without an update; that really wasn't my intention. But you see, five days ago, I came home from my three-week long trip to Boston, U.S.A. Which was my first major journey abroad, so I've only now recovered from my jet-lag. I know I have tons of things to catch up on.

So of course I sign up for [ profile] hc_bingo. ::facepalm:: SELF, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?

This is going to be so much fun. ♥

I love the Sherlock Holmes kink memes.* They make the fact that I'm writing a Mermaid AU seem almost commonplace. ♥

I have just written the closest I've ever come to a sex scene, I believe, though it's not much more than a summation hidden beneath layers and layers of purple prose. Oh, the purple prose. I can't believe I wrote this sentence:

When they later lie in the essence of their shared love, rising again from their mutual deaths, /.../

Excuse me if I go and feel thoroughly ashamed of myself for a while.

So, I had to drop out of [ profile] holmes_big_bang because real life is a bitch and school hates me, but that doesn't mean I can't amuse myself in other ways. So what do I do? I sit down and write an essay on Sherlock Holmes and Asperger's Syndrome, that's what I do. WTF, self?

I haven't even written a fifth of what's planned, either, and I'm already at +3000 words. By Jove.

ALSO. I'm turning eighteen this Friday, which means I will, hopefully, have a Paid Account by Saturday! :D

I’m trudging through the second part of The Valley of Fear.
… ACD couldn’t write romance if his life depended on it, could he?

And while I’m on the subject of Sherlock Holmes, good grief, how can Holmsians be borderline homophobic and still praise Jeremy Brett’s performance? Because Brett’s Holmes is flaming, it’s hilarious. (Did RDJ perhaps draw inspiration from Brett during the restaurant scene in the movie? Because I’m recognizing that “catty bitch” behaviour.)

And now for something completely different. I’ve been playing guitar so much these last few days that I’ve pulled my little finger. Owie. I’m still no rock star, though. Hm. (But I can play In the Hall of the Mountain King!)

I’ve also written +1000 words my bigbang fic, finally. Thanks so much for the kind support! ♥

I’ve just been to [ profile] holmes_big_bang’s summary post and done my part.

Author: [ profile] anna_bm

Pairing: Holmes/Watson (friendship with an abundance of subtext)

Summary: A movie!verse retelling of the first year at 221B Baker Street. Due to a series of unfortunate events, Holmes ends up sharing his new abode with a man called Dr John Watson, as well as said doctor's dog. Holmes is less than amused at first, but after a while it turns out the arrangement isn't half bad.
A chamber play wherein Holmes has Asperger's Syndrome and ADHD, Watson suffers from PTSD and people talk in circles and misunderstand each other.

Ffffffff. What the deuce. What have I gotten myself into? D:

Okay, Anna, calm down. Deep breaths. In. Out. In. Out. All right. Okay.

Deadline isn’t until June. It’s ages until then. Don’t worry. There’s also the fic collaboration-thingamajig with [ profile] ladylovelace, which takes care of the can’t-focus-on-one-thing-at-a-time-ever problem. And this bigbang fic will mostly consist of banter and shilly-shallying. I’m good at writing that. I’m also verbose to a fault, so breaking the 20k limit will be a piece of cake. Don’t worry.

… Can someone please hand me a paper-bag?

(Also, does anyone know how one gets a hold on one of those word-counter things? You know, the narrow bars that gradually fill the more you write? I’ve seen others have them but I don’t know where I can find one for myself.)

Beta? ♥

So, yesterday I sat down and thought I could write a short Sherlock Holmes ficlet to, you know, get the feel of the characters -- and to stretch the writing muscles as well, since I haven't written anything for over a month. So of course 1,500 words poured out of me in just one evening.

Thus I now have to awkwardly ask for a kind soul to beta this for me. It's PG-rated pre-slash told from Watson's POV, with no actual plot and leaning on the side of H/C. And it's 1,500 words long.

I am prepared to exchange favours for this.

Would Holmes refer to himself as "Sherlock" or as "Holmes"?

Well. Now I've changed the layout. I... think I like it? It's still too new for me to know for sure. What do you think? :)

Oh, and a meme:

The anti-socialness came back. *FAILS* Gargh, I'm so happy school is over in a couple of weeks!

To cheer myself up (or make me disgruntled -- one of them, at least):


This, er, is my first time participating? But never mind, just be honest with me, 'kay? ♥
