Fic Masterlist

Okay, so apparently the fic-writing retirement wasn't as official as I thought, so this list keeps growing. *g*Collapse )

Sherlock Parody Vids!



I completely stole these from killerweasel (as usual), but I had to share them. I should warn you that the vids are pretty adult in nature, but funny as hell:

Squishy Face Close Ups



I brought my camera with me yesterday when visiting my parents because I heard that Tuppence had started carrying bits of paper in her mouth and was playing impromptu games of soccer. Of course, I managed to forget to put the charged battery back inside the camera and didn't manage to get any pictures of Tuppence playing soccer. However, I did get these other shots using my cell phone. I think they turned out surprisingly well. Oh, suck it up. I'm a cat person.Collapse )

The Influence of "The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes" on "Sherlock"



I was inspired to post this entry because of a discussion I had with electrikviolet about The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes references in "The Empty Hearse". I only just got around to re-watching the episode today (probably because I'm home for the second day in a row with some kind of stomach bug/fever thing and I finished off The White Queen yesterday), so I've only just contacted poor electrikviolet about that second possible allusion. Anywaaaaaaaaaay, I thought it might be fun to catalogue the various references to The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes that I've noticed throughout the three series. I doubt this will be anything new for fans of The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes, especially as Moffat and Gatiss have already pointed out the major influence that the film has had on their Sherlock Holmes incarnation. And, yes, I realize that I may only be writing this post for my own benefit, but, to quote Lestrade, "I'm cool with it." The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes is my favourite Sherlock Holmes film and Robert Stephens is my second favourite Sherlock Holmes, so I'm going for it. If nothing else, it keeps me from napping. *g* Unfortunately, I may be the only one who's kept awake by this post.Collapse )

Update Status for "The Griffin"



Just a quick post to say that I haven't forgotten about The Griffin. I am working on it, though it's not going as quickly as I'd like. I'm hoping the entire second installment will be ready by the end of March/early April. I could post a Part 1.5 in the mean time if anyone is interested. Well, when I say "anyone," I actually mean karen9 as it's her birthday present, though, of course, other people are welcome to weigh in.

Most Adorable Lion Cub I've Ever Seen!



I have a BBC program called Wonders of Life on in the background and caught this wonderful clip of the most adorable lion cub I've ever seen with the possible exception of the Rupert Graves lion cub from Pride. Yeah, okay. I'm hormonal at the moment. However, I'm sure that even without the PMS cocktail from hell in my system, I'd still be all gooey inside. Just had to share. Watch it, dammit!





The new cat is coming home tomorrow, and I'm hoping to see her on Sunday. My mom has decided on the name Tuppence (as in Tommy and Tuppence). Uh, she was apparently reading about Agatha Christie on Wikipedia and gained her inspiration from there. *g*

Holy Cow! His Last Vow!



And I've really got to stop using these lame rhyming titles. I think somewhere along the way Sherlock broke my brain.* As with my "Empty Hearse" post, I'm amazed I can produce sentences because my brain is still trying to process everything I've just seen. I've had to pull both Volume I and Volume II of my beat up Bantam Classics from my Sherlockiana Section in order to check certain references. As usual, I'll just babble about all the things that struck me during the episode. Come down to the vault.Collapse )

The Sign of Three -- Not Completely For Me



Don't get me wrong. I did enjoy the episode. I enjoyed it a lot. However, it just didn't thrill me the same way as "The Empty Hearse". Everyone's a critic.Collapse )

The Empty Hearse!



Other fans may or may not agree with me, but I think "The Empty Hearse" was definitely worth the two-year wait! It was worth it for John's reaction to Sherlock's resurrection alone, which was better than anything I could have ever imagined. Lestrade's reaction too, for that matter. I had to rewind and watch it again because it was beyond adorable. And I'm entering into spoiler land. I'd better insert a cut. Here be spoilers.Collapse )

A Very Canadian Christmas



We had our first white Christmas in many years. Unfortunately, that white Christmas meant an ice storm that knocked out the power in several thousand homes in Eastern Canada and the U.S. Toronto was hit really hard. I was extremely lucky that my apartment building was spared, but my parents live in Scarborough, the area that was hit the hardest by the storm. My parents were without power from Sunday until the very early hours of Thursday morning. Saying that, they were very fortunate compared to a lot of people. No, seriously. We didn't even have to revert to cannibalism.Collapse )

Peter Davison's HILARIOUS Fiftieth Anniversary Spoof!



Thanks to alysscarlet, I was able to watch Peter Davison's HILARIOUS and absolutely priceless Doctor Who fiftieth anniversary spoof sooner than I expected. It's 30 minutes and features a lot of familiar faces. In fact, I was amazed at the number of cameos, all of which were GOLD. Anywaaaaaay, it's called The Five(ish) Doctors (in case you hadn't heard), and you can find it here:

Today's the BIG Day!!!



The BIG day is finally here! The day we all many of us have been waiting for...Doctor Who is now 50 years old! Woo hoo! :-D To celebrate this momentous occasion, here's my favourite Doctor Who song -- "Doctorin' the Tardis" by The Timelords:





I hope all you Whovians enjoy "The Day of the Doctor"! Unfortunately, I'll be out when it's broadcast, so I'll have to tape it. However, I'll be having lunch with old friends, which seems like a very Doctorish thing to do. Besides, I'm usually thrilled if I can see a new episode on the same day it airs in Britain, so I don't know what I'm complaining about. *g*

Another Doctor Who Postcard!!!



You're not going to believe it, flisters, but I've received another postcard from a
Time Lord! Oh, and it's not just any Time Lord, but my favourite Doctor! Tee hee! :-D



fifthdoctorpostcard1


fifthdoctorpostcard2



It's so sweet that the Fifth Doctor cares. And as his postcard also has a Canadian stamp on it, I'm assuming he either asked a good and kind-hearted Canadian (and quite very possibly a friend of mine) to mail it on his behalf. Then, of course, he could have infiltrated Canada Post (child's play for a Time Lord, I'm sure) or maybe he even travelled here and sent the postcard himself...Well, however the Fifth Doctor managed it, I'm very grateful for the postcard from him (and any accomplices). Thank you very much, Doctor! :-D

Reversed Polarity Photo Album



I decided to throw all of my decent (and not-so-decent) pictures from Reversed Polarity in a Photobucket album. This album includes all of the pictures from my last post, but there are also photos I held back. In some cases, I held them back because they were a bit blurry or just not as nice. However, there are some that just didn't make it because I was lazy or already had another shot of the same subject. I believe my pictures have been arranged by filename, so the order is a bit wonky. If, after all this, you're still interested, you can visit the album by clicking on the TARDIS below:
