So. I guess because LJ is kind of all the fail, and stuff, I'm shifting over to Dreamwidth a little. This is basically so that if there is a mass-exodus I've already done the hard bit.

I'll cross-post fic here and stuff I guess. I just thought you might like to know, I s'pose. If I get really cross I might restrict myself to the main comms, but who knows?

Anyway. [personal profile] errantcomment is me.

GQ magazine says January for Sherlock. (They did one of those blurb-y things for BC.)

Is it weird and shallow that part of my blah about the whole thing is knowing that the hair is a wig? I've got a pout on about it, which is completely mad. It looks basically the same. You couldn't even tell in the promo short, the only reason I found was because I caught the acceptance vid thingy he did for said GQ piece. Not that it should bother me. For the most part it really doesn't. Because it's such a ridiculous small thing. I'm being a twat. I know I'm being a twat.

Maybe it's displacement for all my ~feelings~ about it maybe being a bit crap. What if it's a bit crap? What if it doesn't live up to the hype (and oh god there is So Much Hype I am a little scared)? Fandom will implode, Tumblr will melt, and there will be so many fixit fics. I dunno. I have feelings.

I think part of me doesn't want to know what happens next. Just leave John crouched by a cubicle, leave Sherlock staring down the gun. But  then, I recognise that the fandom needs more canon to work from, we can't survive on crack and smut alone, but... I dunno. I dunno what I want.

I dunno, it's late, I'm wierd. Sherlock will happen soon I suppose it'll be interesting.

I have had this picture )

open in my browser all day because I haven't known what to do with it. It's just there. Occasionally I'll accidentally click on it and forget what I was thinking about. Just look at that person. What is he like?

Also think I might have to drop off IRC in the day while I'm at uni. I'm dangerously close to not passing, which is less than ideal.

The Trip (Rob Bryden and Steve Coogan road trip movie/TV series. It's better than it sounds) gave me my accent again. I sound like I belong in Roysten Vasey. Luckily everyone's in bed, so I don't have to explain to my mother why I sound like I belong in Oasis.

On the other hand, the movie made me feel nostalgic for the Old Country, but then very very sad. Bryden and Coogan have this sort of vitriolic friendship where they're constantly having a go, but they've known each other for eleven years and know each other back to front. I was watching this:

Which is basically me and my RL bestie: I'm usually the one trying to hop across on the stepping stones, though sometimes we switch, for fun. And then I thought: I guess after February we won't get to to be rude to each other, or eat lunch together, or judge each other or giggle and drink tea or get drunk together and have late-night tea. And it's like. I'll miss that. I never really thought about it, but I really will. England's a big deal for me, but I keep thinking about how I'm not going to sing crap music in her car going to uni on cold mornings, or order massive amounts of fast-food to start a hangover day. And yeah. I dunno. I'm weird at the moment. Probably it's going to be fine.

So today my folks basically sat me down and told me that my plan to go to Vegas in February was financial suicide. I told them it was something I really wanted to do. Now I'm cross because they're right. SO CROSS. Like SO CROSS. I mean. Augh. I really really wanted to go to Vegas, it's been something I've always wanted to do and just oh my god it would have been like, my year, made. But the more I look at the costs, the more I realise I just can't afford it. And I'm SO CROSS. I mean, I can save up and do it later but I just feel completely let down. And I feel awful because the person I'm bunking with will be bummed, and all the Americans I was going to annoy are going to be bummed and just I am the worst person in the entire world. I hate it I hate it. But failing a massive injection of cash it's just not going to happen. And I'm SO CROSS.

Maybe it'll fix itself. Something will happen that will reassure me. But I've been looking at the numbers till I'm cross-eyed, and they still won't quite add up. I'm mad at my parents for pointing it out, which is unfair on them, but did they really have to ruin my little bubble of self-delusion. Of course the answer is yes, the sooner I let down everyone the sooner I can try and make it up to them.

tl;dr- I suck and have let everyone down. Sorry.

ETA: Mum and Dad have offered to pay my flight if I go via China. And things.

About to try my hand at original fiction- proper original with people and ideas I made up all by myself (hopefully) fiction.

Hopefully it won't be horrible. I don't want to write a soul-searing epic, just... Something good. Something someone else wants to read.

Me: Mum, I'm having problems with this crochet. I dropped one stitch and I tried to unravel it but it's going to take forever... I spent all night last night carefully unravelling it and it's still not done.

Mum: Oh, I can fix that!

Me: Oh, okay.



Mum: Are you bitching to your internet friends about this?

Me: ...No... >.> *on LJ already*

You know what the worst part is? She's still doing it.

Okay so I'm just hitting a stink time known as 'Two weeks before the big deadline'.
Has anyone got David Tennant/Matt Smith/Benedict Cumberbatch desktops they'd like to share?
I think my desktop is like 1280x800.
Anything is good!
Cookies to those who do.

Also I found my old account. Oh god. *cringegiggleded*

So, I have like two knitting projects, Holmestice, prompts to fill and an assignment, but you know what?
I really want to write letters.
So. PM me your address, and I will think of something exciting to write to you, and send it to you.

Hey guys.
Finally got onto a computer with sufficient internet.
For those of you who don't know, I am basically about five kilometres from this. (BBC Website)
So there you go. I am fine, as are my family and friends, I got very lucky. Others didn't. So it goes.

Rockin and rollin )

01. Your middle name, or explain your chosen name: Ann.
02. Mental age: Oh. About seven. Except in certain situations. Then a mental age of seven is not appropriate.

04. Favorite book: At the moment? A Study in Scarlet (I know right) or perhaps Thud! by Terry Pratchett.
05. Favorite song or album: Um. Either Karma Police by Radiohead or perhaps The Village Green Preservation Society, by The Kinks.
06. What do you believe is your calling in life? Your greatest passion? I don't really have one. To poke people with little sticks?
07. What's your worst recurring nightmare/biggest fear?
Being alone in a room. If I leave, something will get me.
08. Faith, has you any? And if so, what, and if not, why not? I don't do all that God stuff, if that's what you're wondering.
09. Do we know each other outside of LJ? Do we want to? No, and perhaps. If you're good.
10. What's your philosophy on life? As long as you're happy.
11. Is the bottle half-full or half-empty? Wait. I only get half a bottle? Why can't I have a full one? What did I do?
12. Would you tell me something painful if it was in my best interest? Perhaps. I'm not good at uncomfortable truths.
13. What is your favorite memory of us? The best memories are the ones we haven't had yet. Also icon.
14. What is your favorite guilty pleasure? Cigarettes. Really.
15. Tell me one odd/interesting fact about you: I had surgery to mend my broken heart.

18. Which country is your spiritual home? England.
19. What is your big weakness? I'm *very* impulsive and a huge procrastinator.

21. What was your best/favorite subject at school? English.
22. Describe your accent: Sort of Middle England (think BBC English) marinaded in New Zealand for five years.
23. If you could change anything about me, would you? Of course not. You might become less interesting.
24. What do you wear to sleep? T-shirt and PJ bottoms, cause it's summer. Sometimes socks too. And a dressing-gown over the top in the day.
25. Gender identity?
I'm pretty happy being a chick, but would apparently make an excellent gay guy and think men get to dress better than women. Go figure. (Yes I own ties. Several. Why do you ask?)
26. Affectionate/sexual orientation? Ninety per cent het. (Ten per cent of me thinks boobies are awesome)
27. If I only had one day to live, what would we do together? (If you have no idea, just say something crazy, it'll entertain me!) Fly to London, spend the whole day traipsing round the city.
28. Will you repost this so I can fill it out for you? Ta-daaa.

Sherlock Holmes fandom- one of the few where it is possible to need to Wikipedia 'hansom cab' and 'intercrural' whilst reading  one community.
*cracks knuckles*
Think I'm gonna like it here...
