NOW AVAILABLE! 
One Way or Another 2: Pilot
Big news—the network picked up One Way or Another. Big rumors—the set is full of the tension between its two leading men. Isaac is determined to keep his mind on the job, but Ethan keeps tempting him to bad behavior in quiet corners and secluded places around the soundstage. For a guy who wants to stay in the closet, Ethan takes too many risks, and Isaac’s getting nervous. 
Worse, it’s not just about the sex anymore. What was supposed to be a quick impulsive fling is threatening to turn into more—Isaac can see it (and feel it) every time he looks Ethan in the eye. When Ethan wants to take a big step, is Isaac ready?
Miss the beginning? One Way or Another 1: Upfront is available now for only 99 cents!
Excerpt:
The night after the pilot airs, Ethan and Isaac stand backstage at the Late Show, waiting to go on. Onstage, David McNamara is going through his monologue, and Isaac can’t stop fidgeting at his tie. 
"You’re messing it up, quit." Ethan knocks his hand away and stands in front of him to re-straighten it. "What are you so nervous for? McNamara loves you, man." He grins and fusses with Isaac’s lapels, and Isaac fights the urge to tell him to stop, that people are watching.

One Way or Another 1: Upfront
Ethan Kovac loves being an actor, loves his two co-stars on his new sitcom One Way or Another. He and Samantha Jensen got their start as kids together, and now she’s a superstar. Isaac Duncan is a great guy, but he’s tall, dark, and unfortunately for Ethan, straight. Acting’s the fun part. The promos make him crazy, like having to attend the network’s ‘upfront’, where they sell advertisers on new shows. But at the after party, when he and Isaac start bantering for the reporters, his thoughts take a turn for the naughty, especially every time Isaac wraps his arm around him for photo ops. One steamy encounter in a restroom and Ethan discovers that Isaac isn’t completely straight… but is it a one night engagement, or does Isaac have more on his mind than the latest script? 
Excerpt:
“That… looks like a yes,” Ethan says, stepping over next to him, feeling the heat radiating from his body, “but I’m gonna have to hear you say it.” He runs his hand up Isaac’s free arm, feeling the muscles quivering under the gray dress shirt. Isaac is still staring at him slightly open mouthed, so Ethan curls his hand around the back of Isaac’s neck and gently presses his mouth closed with his thumb under his chin.

"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?

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).

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.
