EDIT: Forgot to link to Part 1.

Ok, so it took me forever to post Part 2 because I was going back and forth about just how much I wanted to reveal. Suffice it to say this is the condensed version, to spare all of us, and it does really get back to the TL;DR VAMPIRES GAH part.

When I was in my first year of art school in London, I met this boy. )

OK, we're back to vampires, you can look now. )

I used to collect rubber stamping and scrapbooking manuals like a good little addict. Somerset Studios, Visual Chronicles, Rubber Stamp Journal...I loved them. But after a while these 'manuals' started to frustrate me.

I live in a small town, in a country with no Target or Michael's or giant craft store. Where I live you can't just dash out and pick up a hand press (a mythical item I've never even seen in real life), a bone folder, or a heating pad. There are no star-shaped punches or gilt frame stickers to be found, no ink pads in jewel colours, no....I'll stop now, before my blood pressure goes any higher.

And because I'm sorry I didn't think of it yesterday, here are two doodles that represent my absolute favourite things about The Dark Knight Rises. Again, SPOILERS behind the cut.

And the other thing, of course, is our sweet earnest officer with the sticking-out ears, John Blake.

Reading William Gibson's Distrust That Particular Flavor at the moment. He mentions reading reviews of albums in Melody Maker as if they were SF novels, and it clicked in my mind.

I like a huge variation of different recording artists over different styles and genres. What is the thing that they all have in common? Narrative, of course...so many musicians and composers are storytellers, but what kind of story attracted me more strongly than anything else? My favourite artists tell stories with strong images, that bring out colours and pictures in the mind, even when I don't understand the words. So I thought it would be a fun exercise to match up some of my most-listened albums with some very distinctive comic book artists.

warning: image-heavy! )
Okay, your turn! What are your favourite albums and who would you want to draw them?

I spent the whole day reading coffee table books about window displays and now all I want is a fic where Arthur and Eames are window dressers and Eames keeps having recurring dreams about Arthur in window displays.

I even drew art for it, what the hell )

In possibly related news, my art is also in this video, which makes me weirdly happy. I drew the dinner. JGL is eating my turkey.

Oh, Iceland. Why is your music so lovely?

It's not like I didn't love Björk already, even in her more experimental modes, but when my friend introduced me to Sigur Rós it was like a completely different world.

Then my illustration teacher got me into múm. While Sigur Rós is operatic and emotionally devastating in its delivery, listening to múm feels more like spending a drizzly winter morning snuggled under your duvet with someone you like very much, who's humming nonsense love songs into your hair. Comforting doesn't begin to describe it.

And now Jónsi's got his solo album, and it's so gorgeous I have to do a painting for each one of his songs. Here's one I did a few months back. I've been working on the third one for ages; I keep screwing it up.

A little bit of Lestrade love. In the books we never find out what his first name is, except that it starts with G.

This is G. )

I'd like to do more but I need to see more Lestrade. Am still annoyed that he didn't get a look in during The Blind Banker, as if I needed any more reasons to be annoyed with that episode.

Title: Catch as Catch Can, part 3 (Part 1)(Part 2)
Summary: Sherlock is bored. John devises a game of hide and seek, with a twist: all the clues are pop culture references, comics and film and TV &c. Sherlock needs to make space on his hard drive in a hurry.
Warnings: slash (John/Sherlock), adult merchandise, cross-dressing, RPF of people you don't actually know (and one that you might). Also mention of Print On Demand technology (NOOOO AIIIEEEEE).
Notes: To peeps who are reading this: do you like the linked bits, or do they throw you out of the story? Please let me know...

If this is how you behave when you’re angry with me, I clearly need to aggravate you whenever possible. )

Title: Catch as Catch Can, part 2 (find Part 1 here)
Summary: Sherlock is bored. John devises a game of hide and seek, with a twist: all the clues are pop culture references, comics and film and TV &c. Sherlock needs to make space on his hard drive in a hurry.
Warnings: slash (John/Sherlock), abuse of italics and the parenthesis, and a large amount of geekitude. Also possibly ridiculous fanon characterisation of Kevin Smith.
Notes: I was wrong. This is very likely going to take more than 3 chapters. Hopefully not more than 5. (This is turning into Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey: Best 2 out of 3! Best 3 out of 5! 4 of 7! 5 of 9! Argh.)
Also, please note that the derision heaped on the following nerdiness is Sherlock's, not mine. It's pretty obvious I love everything he's putting down in this fic. Even the gothlolis.
Also also, I think this fic is going to need some vicious beta (how does one conjugate this into a gerund? beta-ing?) before I let it out onto a community. (Commentfic doesn't count, that's the fun part.)

oh for Hawking's sake )

Title: Catch as Catch Can
Chapter: 1 (of...a few? Probably not more than 3)
Summary: Sherlock is bored. John devises a game of hide and seek, with a twist.
Warnings: slash (John/Sherlock), abuse of italics and the parenthesis, and a large amount of geekitude.
Notes: Written to fill this prompt on the sherlockbbc kinkmeme:
Sherlock is bored. BORED. Things are looking grim for Mrs. Hudson's wall.

John devises a Scavenger Hunt.

But not just any scavenger hunt. The clues are all from pop culture, films and crap telly. All the things Sherlock knows nothing about. It's going to kill him to clutter up his hard drive with all this useless drivel. Even if he will delete it all later.

Why would Sherlock even go through this? The prize...is John.

Additional notes: I've added links through the text, and used some real places around London, in case you want to play along. Feel free to add corrections or addenda in the comments, and I'll revise as needed.

It makes absolutely no sense for BBC Sherlock and Tim Drake to exist in the same universe, much less the same city (however briefly). And yet.

There would have to be an excuse for Knight and Squire to get involved in some way, possibly as the entry point for Batman and Robin in the first place. See, even typing 'Batman and Robin' in the same sentence as 'Sherlock' is all kinds of absurd.

And yet.

And yet...

'So you're saying I only need to give the appearance of normalcy to gain permanent acceptance, and through it, access.'

'People see what they want to see.' Without the mask, Robin's--Tim's--eyes were sharp, and very blue. That familiar look on someone so young made John uneasy.

Am bored at work and reading this archive post from Making Light. It's like sitting down with several Michael Chabon characters who are trying to decide where to have lunch.

They start with a discussion of how the word 'sidekick' might have evolved from 'kickshaw' (a side dish) and 'side-pal' or 'side-partner' (your basic Bucky or Robin-type character) to mean both. Then they give directions to the Old Town Bar via cannonball trajectory. That's before they move on to the comments.

Some highlights:
Chicago deep-dish vs. New York Slice: Start here and scroll down. Thin crusts, square-cut variations and Hawaiian pizza "which is neither" all get a look-in. Descriptions escalate to poetic, and then to poetry outright.
The Dumpling House on Eldritch Eldridge Street.
Lime rickeys still served at Korean restaurant.

It goes on. And now I'm hungry and want to go to New York.

I've done some Lestrade ones to post next. I love Lestrade in this incarnation. I bet he reads Sir Terry Pratchett's Captain Vimes books, especially Feet of Clay. 'The scream in the night was most likely a man getting out of bed and stepping sharply on an upturned hairbrush.' Hee.

ps. I need to do some Sherlock icons...

It's really true that you only pick things up when you're ready for them. I used to think reading choices explained something about the kind of person I am, but if there's something to be deduced from my reading patterns I'm not sure I want to know.

I've never thought of myself as a mystery fan in the same way I think of myself as an sf/fantasy fan. I have a mainstay 'comfort list' (Doyle, Christie, Poe) and of course there are my favourite mysteries muddled with other genres (Pratchett's Night Watch, Adams's Dirk Gently) and all the crime shows I can't seem to stop watching on TV no matter how ridiculous or predictable they become. But I never thought of myself as a mystery reader.

brief thoughts on Lord Peter, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, and BBC Sherlock. Well...not that brief. )
