I haven't really written my thoughts anywhere lately, as Tumblr is way to scary for that - and I confess I have also been ignoring good ol' Livejournal. Sorry about that! I thought I'd ramble a bit about my 11th year in Holmes-fandom XD (What, you mean, other people have moved on to lives and families and jobs and things - ???)
It's been quite relaxed lately for me, any canon fan I manage to find in Tumblr and deviantArt is a treasured thing. I have stopped feeling so angry at Guy Ritchie, and I still enjoy BBC Sherlock somewhat, though that series has turned a bit too complacent and away from the fannish love that was so brill at the start. I am dreading the victorian christmas special a bit - because it will introduce the same phenomenon as with the RDJ films, people wont make a difference with ACD and other fics. But I can only hope in this case the difference wont be as noticeable....I HOPE.
I saw the teaser for that special on youtube, and I was not very convinced: repeating the same jokes and sentences over and over "Not your housekeeper". "I'm a high functioning sociopath" "Damn my leg" and so on and so on IS GETTING REALLY ANNOYING XD Just stop it. Hopefully the whole episode isn't like that.
I have started to re-read canon too, in a very nitpicky way - googling everything I don't know incl. objects, places and people - I finally got fed up about being so insecure among those fans who remember all the canon details. I am learning lots, and am quite enjoying it. I'm trying to make it very non-stressful for myself, though. Even if I am not very academic, I can read these stories in my own way, and perhaps get some cartoony drawing ideas too.
In other news, going to go see spacefall
again in a week and will see some more Holmesy things! Must start packing soon :D (Yes we are still BFFs, shush.)
