devinleighbee:

I am absolutely appalled with how mean and horrible people are on this site to each other. Forget about who is right or who is wrong, does it make you feel good to call each other horrible names? Are you a better person because you started a fight with someone and have hurt people in the progress? 

Just let it go. Drop it! Leave it alone! From the start we’ve known that everyone has their reasons for the ships they follow, why do you have to go in and tell them you don’t like what they like? JUST LEAVE IT ALONE 

I don’t care if you feel the person you’re yelling at deserves it, when you’re actively putting people down and possibly triggering them you have a problem. And if you’re okay with that then you have no sense of compassion.

"We always talk about the downside of [fandom] because that’s the more colourful thing to talk about. There are many more fans out there whose response to wishing for creative control is to make up their own stories. And to make up their own ideas, and to make beautiful drawings, and scripts of their own. There is the slash fiction - and why not? What’s wrong with porn? It’s made many people in this room happy; it’s a vessel of human happiness, why should we object to it? It’s a creative response to something! That’s brilliant and wonderful and heartening and exciting when that happens. Because that’s how people start being writers. It is. You start being a writer by imitating other writers. Mark and I never stopped!…That is a hugely positive thing and yes, of course, somewhere in amongst that there is the clinically insane, but we can’t allow that to dominate the conversation."

VICIOUS AND VULGAR
Performed at Broadway Performance Hall, October 12th, 2013

In V&V, playwrights Scott and Luhrs re-imagine the author Arthur Conan Doyle and wonder aloud: what would he think of all of the fan fiction, cosplaying, and conventions happening in today’s world? A grumpy and abrasive re-animation, Doyle manifests Holmes and Watson in modern, female forms in attempts to prove to his audience that they have wasted their time. This play explores characters, themes, and relationships in Doyle’s classics― all with a contemporary twist (with the help of Granada Holmes and a certain mouse detective, of course).

Creators Alison and Sammy will be doing a livechat tomorrow (4/5/14) at 1PM EST to answer questions about this piece. Send questions to theshescott, itriedthatonceitwasabadmove, or tag your questions #vicious and vulgar

Although we cannot make it to 221B Con this weekend, Sammy and I have a very special present for the fandom to premiere on Friday.

In honor of 221B Con, we are ready to announce the online premiere of Vicious and Vulgar this Friday the 4th!

Vicious and Vulgar was a crowdfunded, full-length play that premiered at Sherlock Seattle. Our research material was provided by academic extraordinaire professorfangirl, and dialogue was lifted straight from crowdsourced questions on Tumblr. We made a rough recording of the performance, and are beyond excited to launch it this Friday in tandem with one of the largest gatherings of Sherlock fans in the world. Watch at the con, watch at home, we just want to celebrate this weekend with our love letter to the fandom. A smoother edit will be available soon, but we want you all to see it now!

In Vicious and Vulgar, playwrights Sammy Scott and Alison Luhrs re-imagine the author Arthur Conan Doyle and wonder aloud: what would he think of all of the fan fiction, cosplaying, and conventions happening in today’s world? A grumpy and abrasive re-animation, Doyle manifests Holmes and Watson in modern, female forms in attempts to prove to his audience that they have wasted their time.’

This play explores characters, themes, and relationships in Doyle’s classics— all with a contemporary twist (with the help of Granada Holmes and a certain mouse detective, of course).

Click here for more info on the play.

Stay tuned for link address. The video will go live this Friday at 5 EST, and there will be an AMA on tumblr with the playwrights/actresses (theshescott and itriedthatonceitwasabadmove) at 1PM EST on Saturday!

Nineteen Seconds of Falling 

Sherlock spends exactly nineteen seconds zoned out after John asks him to be best man. He retreats to his mind palace in the desperate hope of figuring out what he wants, unfortunately for him his mind palace is full of people who keep trying to give him advice.

I haven’t read fanfic in a very long time (as our lack of updates suggests) but a link to this was on my dash and I thought ‘what the hell’, expecting to close out of it right away (no offense, that’s just my relationship with fanfic these days) and it’s honestly really good. Like because of this I might actually start to read fic again, I know I’ll check out this author’s other works. The characterization, pacing, and expressions are spot on. It’s engaging and humorous, but pulls on your heart strings as well. This story exists only in Sherlock’s mind palace, and it’s amazing how the different elements from the show and the author combined. This is exactly how I want Sherlock’s mind palace to be, especially with the memories. Honestly well done, this is a great fic for people who love unrequited love fics and pining Sherlock!

An Acquired Taste 

When an injury forces adventure and travel photographer John Watson to take more sedate jobs, he worries he might be bored - until he meets Chef Sherlock Holmes.

Shoy’s posting a review? And it’s for an AU that doesn’t have to do with vampires or werewolves or wings? WHAT?! Okay, all joking aside, I finally remembered that I used to REVIEW fics instead of just read them, and I thought I’d share one I just finished.

This is a lovely romp into an AU I would love to read more of. Both Sherlock and John seem to be spot-on in their new roles, and I really appreciate that the author let the world slowly build as their relationship did. I can totally picture Sherlock as an amazing chef, and his explanation for how he got into the food business felt perfectly in-character for me. John as a travel photographer was a little harder to grasp, but it didn’t take me out of the story by any means. I was almost disappointed when I reached the end, because I wanted to read more about the food and the photography and, of course, the budding romance… This fic has definitely (if you’ll pardon the pun) left me hungry for more.

bring on the evening hours || a sussex downs playlist

The hours have grown long and the days grow late, and the country calls. The time has come to leave the hectic city behind, to set aside the trappings of two lives well and truly lived to settle into the quiet evenings of forever. And perhaps, for a little while, among the bees and flowers there is some peace to be found at last in these ever-fleeing numbered days.
