And that's all I'm going to say about that. :P

Anybody got some good Sherlock series 3 recs? Preferably of the Johnlock variety (though I would be happy to give other things a shot)? Or how about some AUs? Or any older series 1 or series 2 inspired WIPs that have suddenly started updating. I am fascinated by those.

Below are my further thoughts on The Empty Hearse after a second viewing. (Original post on Tumblr here). This builds upon my initial reactions recorded here and is also influenced by heaps of meta I have encountered online over the past several days:

I have only seen the full episode once and am partway through my second viewing. We began recording the latest episode of the Three Patch Podcast about half an hour after the episode aired and the past two days have been taken up with editing, posting, grading and getting sick. This is  the first chance I've had to put down initial thoughts, but I wanted to do them now before I've had even more time to think things through and analyze.

The US airdates for Sherlock Series 3 are official (Jan 19, 26, Feb 2)! Still waiting for UK air dates but my bet is on them being just shortly before or slightly overlapping. In any case, I am positive that the UK will get first dibs on their cult hit, but I am ecstatic to know that the US airing won't be as far behind as it was for series 2.

This is the second installment of several posts detailing the ups and downs of tracking filming and spoilers for Sherlock Series #3 with partner in crime dudeufugly.

Our second (and third) days on the trail of spoilers... )

Original Tumblr Post Here

I had the amazing opportunity of spending 8 days in London (and Cardiff)  with dudeufugly in search of #setlock for Spoilercast (the spoiler segment of the Three Patch Podcast).  This is the first of several write-ups detailing the ups and downs of tracking down and finally experiencing filming for Sherlock series 3.


image


The adventure began on a Tuesday when I arrived from London/Gatwick at our hostel shortly after 10pm. Geny (dudeufugly) and I had begun texting each other the minute I cleared customs so that I was quite literally off my face with excitement when I finally met her at check-in. I’m afraid I screamed in her ear in happiness while she hugged me.


image


We then headed up to the dorm room so I could get settled in and we begin planning our next course of action. At this point, a quick shout-out to our hostel is in order. The Travel Joy Hostel in Pimlico on the Victoria Line, was awesome (photo above), affordable, clean, well-staffed and had the best amenities of all the hostels I’ve stayed at this past year. It also had an awesome view of the Battersea Power Station (the photo below is the view from outside), which only fueled our fannishness.


image


It’s part of a pub, has free soft-drinks and tea and coffee throughout the day, breakfast is included, the wifi (SO IMPORTANT WHEN SETLOCKING) was strong and cost only 1 pound a day. While Geny strategized by checking tags and other resources for possible leads (she has got this down to a science!) and answering asks, I took care of a few work emails and did some work on drafting a grammar exam for my students (boring - I know!)


image


We knew at this point that Sherlock had been filming in the studio in Cardiff and were looking for hints regarding when and where they might resume outdoor filming. However, we weren't able to uncover productive leads so decided to spend the following day in London paying homage to beloved Sherlock sites around town.


Stay tuned for that in Part II.

My latest trip to London was a success and I got to see actual filming of Sherlock! Twice! This is me and my travel buddy Geny (dudeufugly) on Tumblr standing in front of the actual door on North Gower Street just a few hours before filming began. What a thrill! There's so much to report, including plenty of nonsense, that I want to write up in great detail for those who couldn't be there. I think I'm going to call this series My Setlock Life because I'm cheesy that way. Stay tuned. . .

I love podcasting and am having so much fun with the Three Patch Podcast. It, more than anything is why I'm not posting enough around here. I seriously spend more time on this podcast per week (at least since April) than I did in the heyday of Snapecast, but it means that I'm not doing other fannish stuff nearly as much, and that includes drawing fanart. There are so many Sherlock related pieces I want to draw, but I'm feeling overwhelmed trying to figure out which one to do next and which ones to not even bother with:

1. There's a WIP of a Labyrinth/Sherlock crossover piece that I've started the lineart on and put aside and is based upon this image of Jarod dancing with Sarah.

2. I want to draw Captain John Watson of the starship USS Enterprise in his command yellow shirt sitting in the captain's chair with his science officer, the vulcan Mr. Sherlock, standing just behind him.

3. [livejournal.com profile] earlgreytea68's WIP Nature and Nurture, which is based on the premise that John and Sherlock suddenly find themselves raising a baby who happens to be a clone of Sherlock. I want to depict Mycroft contemplaating snapshots of baby Sherlock and baby Clone!Sherlock because even at only 6 months, they are so very different in demeanor.

4. I want to draw sexytimes between John and Genie!Sherlock from [livejournal.com profile] mojoflower's WIP Shatter the Darkness.

5. For a while, I've been contemplating a partner piece for The Fall, which I completed last summer. This would be John in outline with represntative images from the series filling it in the same way: his first text from Sherlock, his sweater pattern, his chair and Union Jack pillow from 221B, his outline as he stands with his arm outstretched pleading with Sherlock not to jump. This time, I would use blue ink.

5. Definitely want to try some Greaser!Lock.

6. John seducing or being seduced by cross-dressing Sherlock. Perhaps that cab scene in The Adventure in the Consulting Woman by DancingGrimm.

7. Something, anything from leopardwrites WIP The Illusion of Free Will. Maybe a moment with young Sherlock and adult John.

8. Sex, sex and more sex. I just want to draw these two guys having lots of great sex and orgasms. There are so many gorgous moments in fict that I would love to illustrate, even if it was only to show Sherlock's face as he comes or John trying not to lose it as Sherlock touches him for the first time.

Title: Midnight Blue
Characters: Sherlock Holmes/John Watson
Rating: Teen for tongue

Notes: Based on a moment in Chapter 8 of BeautifulFiction's Midnight Blue Serenity. Gorgeous and harrowing casefic with beautifully erotic moments and a bestubbled, eyeliner-wearing Sherlock. It's for a case of course, and poor John didn't stand a chance. My first time drawing a guy with eyeliner, and my second attempt at stubble. Consider this a rec. Go read the fic.

Rating: General

Notes: Drawn for Let's Draw Sherlock's: Musical Art challenge. This is based on the alternate challenge of converting an album cover. I blame all the Sherlock wears tight trousers and eyeliner fic I've been reading for this one. Sherlock looks good in makeup, as does David Bowie. Based upon Bowie's album cover for Aladdin Sane.

Notes: Imagine what it would be like if the Doctor's companions were a consulting detective and a half-blood wizard. Drawn for [livejournal.com profile] morethansirius who requested a little crossover of her favorite fandoms as her [livejournal.com profile] exchange_bingo prize.

First Kiss

Title: First Kiss
Pairing: Sherlock/John
Rating: Mature
Links: Ao3 | DeviantArt | Tumblr
Notes: John, in control, pins Sherlock’s hands and moves in for that first kiss. Drawn for [livejournal.com profile] pern_dragon, who requested something with John in control pinning Sherlock’s hands to the wall with Sherlock’s clothes disheveled or in the process of coming off. Clothes are boring. So are walls. I hope she doesn’t mind. This is the first piece of fanart I've completed this year and also my first sort of gently smutty Sherlock piece.  I shall continue to search for beautiful reference photos so I can do more.

Shamelessly borrowed and modified from [livejournal.com profile] mugenmine. Yearly fannish retrospectives are fun and useful for looking at where we've been and where we're going, and this past year saw a huge shift in my arting that was beyond my wildest imagination. I hope 2013 is just as surprising and interesting. I also really want to improve.

Summary: To Sherlock, John was integral, essential and would always be so much more than transport.
Notes: Artwork drawn to accompanying Nox Candida's Sherlock BigBang piece, Not Just Transport, a remix of Sherlock and The Doctor's Wife.For this, I tried my hand at coloring in using only dots and a blue pen. Although this was hugely time consuming, I plan to try my hand at more of this.

Title: Christmas Crossover
Characters: Sherlock Holmes, Severus Snape
Rating: G
Links: On Tumblr | On AO3 | On Deviantart Part I | On Deviantart Part II
Summary: For Christmas this year, Sherlock found himself engrossed in the tale of a morally ambiguous half-blood wizard while Severus was intrigued by the deductive abilities of the world's only consulting detective.
Notes: Art for this year's holiday cards. [livejournal.com profile] holyfant wisely pointed out that it's more likely that Severus would be interested in a book about crime solving than Sherlock would be in a book about wizards. However, I like to think both would find merits in the stories of the other and that perhaps John had gifted Sherlock with a set of popular fiction books with all the murders tabbed on account of a serial killer with a tendency to copy crime scenes from well-known books. As for Severus, I'll leave you to decide who H is.

Title: Release
Characters: John Watson, Sherlock Holmes
Rating: Pg-13, NSFW
Notes: I really need to get better at drawing porn. Seriously, it's my dream to draw an illustration for every single fic I bookmark on Ao3. This was necessary practice. Quick drawble inspired by a gif I encountered on Tumblr and forgot to reblog or archive. Also, I probably shouldn't be drawing porn on the back of my course schedules. Full picture behind the cut.

Nothing much to see, but probably NSFW anyway... )

Title: More Interesting than a Mild Case of Vomiting
Characters: Sherlock Holmes, John Watson, Mike Stamford
Pairing: John/Sherlock
Rating: G
Links: On Tumblr | On AO3 | On Deviantart
Summary: It's two weeks to the Yule Ball and John still can't find a date. Meanwhile Sherlock has devised a plan for getting out of this most tedious of school events.
Length: 2233 words + 1 picture
Notes: Drawn and written for jumpeonit for the Johnlock Gift Exchange on Tumblr. The prompt was “Yule Ball” and the genre "Potterlock AU". Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] tjs_whatnot for the fast beta and to [livejournal.com profile] dickgloucester for the ever essential Brit-picking. I still can't believe I wrote fic!

I still don't have a date... )

Rating: G

Notes: There are many parallels between these two singular characters, which are represented here textually and visually. A gift for [livejournal.com profile] drinkingcocoa, who loves these two as much as I do, and who identified the quotes from BBC Sherlock, the Harry Potter series, and Machiavelli's The Prince that best link these men. The title is Latin and translates to "Of Leaders" and is a play on the Latin translation of Machiavelli's work. Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] sc010f for sharing her Latin expertise.

Title: Let's Make a Bed Out in the Rain
Author: theimprobable1
Rating: Mature
Characters: Sherlock Holmes/John Watson

Excuse me while I blow my nose.  I'm a bit of a mess here after reading this incredibly touching John/Sherlock fic. It was written before season 2, so there's no Reichenbach angst or face punching or Irene Adler for distraction - just the beautiful friendship and love between Sherlock and John. It begins when John comes back to Baker Street after moving out of his and Mary's place the night he proposes to her and Mary breaks up with him. She'd met someone else and had been cheating on John for months. John is devastated. Sherlock is immediately concerned for John and very in love too - though John does not know this. Seeing his friend in pain, Sherlock stretches himself and tries everything in his power to help John through this difficult time.

Sherlock's efforts, which really do push him beyond his comfort zone, result in some adorably humorous moments. However when John suffers, Sherlock does too. And as John begins to recover, we see how Sherlock continues to suffer in his own quiet and determined way. He pines for John but has long ago accepted that all he can ever have from John is friendship. This determination and resignation, while helping him protect his heart, also dull his powers of deduction and cause him to misinterpret certain important clues.

A beautiful balm for the brokenhearted.
