sherlock!  
Okay, so last week, I got around to watching Sherlock and I see what you all have been raving about. It's amazing and I'm dying, waiting for the new season. But with the problems on LJ, I couldn't post and ask for recs. So I'm asking now. Not that I need a new fandom, but whatever. Don't judge me! I'm trying to fill the hole in my heart now that SV is over!

Anyway, recs of the Holmes/Watson variety would be appreciated. Fic, vids, icons, comms, I'll take anything and everything.

Thanks in advance!

Oooooh, we've been thinking of watching that too!!!! It's always so much work getting into a new fandom!!! I hate having to wade through all the crappy fics to get to the good ones!

You definitely should, if you get some time. There are only 3 episodes in the first season, each 1.5 hours, so it's definitely doable.

Very true! That's why I like to ask for recs and am a big fan of making them as well. :)

Just because of this post I've gotten a hold of it and am planning on at least watching the first ep tonight. I've got everything prepped so if I like it as much as you did, I'll flood you with stuff. Sound good? :D

Oh, wow, I'm flattered! I hope you do like it and if you come across anything, I"d appreciate it! Thanks. It's sweet of you to offer! :)

=D I'm bouncing around waiting for the new season too!

Rec wise, I had to lol at myself 'cause it seems the few Sherlock/John fics I have saved are mostly super porny, lol! So I have a few really good and well written (and delightfully hot) recs if you'd like them?

In the meantime, say hello to your new home:
http://sherlockbbc-fic.livejournal.com/ - The Sherlock Kink Meme.
Although there's plenty of different types of prompts/fic, not just porn (although there's plenty of that too =D)
Be warned though; it's veeeerrrrry addictive! I know I can spend ages and ages camped out there.

I'm so excited! I watched the first episode at a family friend's house and was desperately trying to get a hold of the other two, lol. :)

LOL I don't mind the porn but I'll take anything you give me. :D

Oh no ... a kink meme? I'm doomed! I am still wading through the X-Men one! But thank you for the link. I definitely see where my life is going. ;)
beef_wonder3beef_wonder3 on August 1st, 2011 10:14 am (UTC)
Awesome! I remembered some other, non-porny, ones I had saved. So my mind isn't completely on the one track lmao!

Anyhoo, enjoy!

Nothing wrong with a one-track mind, at least when it comes to this stuff. :D

And this is amazing! Thank you so much. I'm looking forward to reading all of those.

You've come to the right place! I've been obsessed with Sherlock since it started.

I've read pretty much everything that's decent in the fandom. So.... to start, here's my Sherlock delicious tag but I would start with the fics I've tagged "fucking awesome" and "excellent". It's a safe bet they are great if I tagged them that way, if I do say so myself. XD I tag everything I read and I try to use descriptive tags and summaries so just going through my tags should help you find your way into this amazing and huge fandom.

Have fun! ♥

Yay! I knew my flist wouldn't let me down. ♥

Thank you. You are amazing and I love your tagging system. :D

I see how I'm going to be spending the next week or so. ;)
