Back in September, Have You Heard About the Morstans? was translated into Russian by [livejournal.com profile] casio_clock.  I promised to link to it from my journal and then I never ended up doing it (I have the tag 'I'm completely irresponsible' for a reason).  

So this is a public apology and a great big thank you to [livejournal.com profile] casio_clock, and another thank you to everyone who's read and commented on the translation. 

If anyone would like to read the translation, you can find it here

So I finally finished a fic.  It's Sherlock/ Molly, because apparently that's what I'm into now. 

(I haven't jumped ship on S/J, but I'm having a hard time reconciling interviews I've read and bits from series two with my old headcanon; I think the strap broke on my slash goggles.)

I'm looking for a beta (tenses, grammar, flow, punctuation, the whole nine, but whatever is fine) and a Britpick.  The ending needs work, I think, so even if someone wants to just read it and give suggestions on how I can shore up the weak spots, I'd be thrilled.

About the fic: 

It's post-Reichenbach, NC-17 (for graphic sexuality and themes, some language), romantic but not fluffy (well, maybe a little bit here and there, but very little) and about as angst-ridden and dark as I usually write, approx. 38k words (80 pages in Open Office), and the major warnings are for suicidal ideation, depiction of mental illness and past drug abuse, mentions of rape and death of a child (nothing explicit, although I'm fairly desensitized so I may not be a good judge). 

It's set in America, but I had reasons (Australia is really far away from the UK, and I can't see Molly being able to pick up another language easily, and Mycroft is in bed with the CIA, so.) 

This is the fic I took Badlands from; that scene happens about halfway through the story.

So, ah, yeah, that's all.

At midnight, the English language version of Wikipedia (along with reddit and a host of other sites) is going dark for 24 hours in response to SOPA and PIPA. 

I don't want to soapbox or alienate anyone with my politics, but if either of these bills pass, we can kiss LJ, Dreamwidth, AO3, FFN, YouTube, DeviantArt, and any and all other sites that host fanworks goodbye.  So if you're in the US, email (or better yet) call your Reps and Senators and make some noise, or take it further if you're so inclined.  Facebook isn't doing anything official, but there's this

I can't help but see a completely Orwellian future ahead of us if this is signed into US law.

You guys.  Sherlock.   

Did anyone else feel like there were a few direct nods to fandom?  Like, not to canon, but very specific memes/ observations that we (as a community) have made over the past seventeen months.  Without spoiling anything, the one thing that immediately caught my attention was the milk.

Even though 11 isn't my favorite, I kind of want this shirt.

Well, a little on the inside, but that's nothing new.


I've been avoiding LJ for the most part (and shirking my responsibilities, as I owe auction fic going on what, 7 months? and one of them is almost done but my crippling fear of it not being good enough is preventing me from even doing my own edit, let alone seeking a beta or posting it), lurking in some other fandoms (glee [wtf?], Supernatural, other shows I've only found fic for over on the Pit), just being a general creep about not talking to people.



But I'm going to try to be a human being again for a little while, we'll see how it goes.

Title: Just Got Lucky
Pairing: John/ Sherlock
Rating: very soft R
Warnings: Non-explicit sex and discussions of sexuality
Genre: Romance, fluff, smattering of angst
Word Count: ~7k
Summary: If you were to ask Sherlock how he ended up at the final table in a high-stakes, no-limit Texas Hold 'em tournament being filmed for broadcast on American television, he would simply wave you off and tell you it was for a case. If you were to ask John, he'd tell you it was because his flatmate was an ego-maniacal twat that would go to almost any length to prove a point.
Disclaimer: ACD canon is in the public domain, BBC owns this incarnation, I'm not making a dime.

Gameplay resumed and, as predicted, the short stack was knocked out on the first hand. )

A/N: Written for the [livejournal.com profile] help_nz  auction for [livejournal.com profile] madder_badder  , who wanted to see Sherlock and John on vacation. This what fell out instead. A working knowledge of poker, specifically Texas Hold 'em, might make this fic easier to read in places. A good primer, along with a glossary of poker terms, can be found here.  The title is from the song of the same name, by JoBoxers.

Many thanks to my quick and skilful betas, [livejournal.com profile] blue_eyed_1987  and [livejournal.com profile] mazarin221b .

So I'm into Glee.  I'm still a dirty lurker in the fic comms for my OTP, and I watch spoilers like nobody's business for mention of one character.
Cut for minor Sue spoiler. )

So I've finally kicked the worst of the black plague I've had for the last week (now just my face hurts from sinus pressure, but at least I can breathe), and I haven't taken any kind of medicine (side note: I'm insanely sensitive to all kinds of chemicals, especially considering my body mass. Seriously, two drinks and I'm on the floor, and this is the tolerance level I've built up.  If I have a headache, I take one Advil, cut in half), so my head is clearer than it has been in at least a week.  And so my subconscious decides that now's a good time for horrific dream imagery.  I haven't even watched any horror movies.
Cut for rambling and some squicky shit (at least, I'm squicked). )

tl;dr: My arm feels like jelly, I'm nauseous, and I'm put off of pizza indefinitely.  Thanks for that, subconscious.  I know you were trying to help me work through whatever it is you think I need to work through, but you're still a dick.

I signed up for [livejournal.com profile] help_japan .  My thread can be found here
My thread on [livejournal.com profile] fandomaid  can be found here.

Yes, I fucked up the coding on the originals and I'm not sure how to edit my comment, but I'm working on it. (This is what I get for trying to move into the 21st century).  I know what I did, it was that damn auto-formatting box.

Here are the basics, same as all my other auctions pretty much.

User Name: [livejournal.com profile] sunken_standard
Email address: to winning bidder YM/AIM/Gtalk/ICQ (optional): --

So I'm the kind of (relatively spineless) person who tries to be nice and accommodating to everyone, all the time.  When someone thinks I'm an asshole, I apologize, because I don't like knowing that I've made someone's day unpleasant.  I don't air my dirty laundry because I'm the first to back down when shit gets real (yes, I'm a coward). 

After reading a comment on a friend's journal and a linked post somewhere else, I've been thinking about some things more and more.  Like how much I miss the fandom at large and how much fun I used to have, before I got completely turned off after a series of wank events (one of which was my mini-drama [over a tag], and it wasn't a big deal, but just one of those things you curl your lip and roll your eyes at).  

So long story short, I'm going to be posting fic again eventually, and I'm looking for alternative places to do it since I don't feel very comfortable where I usually do (see how I'm still avoiding name-dropping and keeping things vague?  I'm a total pussy).  I realize I probably won't get as many readers as I would in a consolidated community, but them's the breaks. 

So far I've joined (but not de-lurked):
[livejournal.com profile] 221b_after_dark 
[livejournal.com profile] glitterlock 
[livejournal.com profile] hooperholmes
[livejournal.com profile] sherlockhet *
[livejournal.com profile] johnsherlock *
[livejournal.com profile] 221bsherlock *
[livejournal.com profile] bbcsherlock *
[livejournal.com profile] thegamegoeson *
[livejournal.com profile] moriarty_hooper 

* Just joined, but I lurked there when the BBC fandom was new, so I don't have a feel for them.

Have I missed any?

ETA: have added [livejournal.com profile] bakerstreetfic  and [livejournal.com profile] shock_blanket  to the list from the comments (thank you guys).
Also, [livejournal.com profile] sherlockchagrin , which is by approval only (but they're not dicks about it).

(also, why are some names darker?  LJ, the intricacies of posting elude me)

WTF, self?

I so fail at spelling and usage.  I've been mixing up cannon and canon and no one's called me on it.  Sad thing is, I probably knew the correct usage at one time, but forgot it.  It's easy to forget things when IRL I usually just grunt and point.  I feel like I should retake 8th grade English.
