It’s been a bit too long since I’ve done one of these. Here we go.

a very happy birthday to Lady Branwyn

A very happy birthday to Lady Branwyn. I hope you have a fun day and that things are going well for you. I’ve actually been thinking about the TCBS quite a bit lately and miss the fun days spent with you.

I left a review for Branwyn’s charming story “Refuge, about the Fellowship + Co. in Minas Tirith after the war. That seems like a nice way to mark the day, at least to me. I’m sure she’d love other reviews as well, so if you’re so inclined, why not leave her a nice note on a favorite story of hers? You can find her work at StoriesOfArda.com.


thoughts on Reichenbach viewing #2

Originally published at Faith Seeking Understanding. You can comment here or there.

I finally screwed up my courage and watched Reichenbach for the second time. I was a little Sherlock’d out (I also rewatched Baskerville earlier tonight) so the emotional impact, while very real, wasn’t quite as stab-me-in-the-heart-why-don’t-you as I was expecting. I’ll definitely watch it again for that in a day or two. But in the meantime, as my brain isn’t shortcircuited by the emotion, I thought I’d share some things I jotted down that struck me about the episode.

Sherlock vs. The Hobbit

It's really quite amusing - for nearly a decade I work in the Tolkien fandom. I've been interested in other things that have come along in the meantime (Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Star Trek reboot, House) but have never really felt truly fannish about them.

And when a new fandom grabs me by the jugular and won't let go? It's about a famously short man who is drawn to adventure and ultimately forms true friendships through the thrill of a chase. A man played by Martin Freeman, no less. And with Smaug as his best friend which, granted, doesn't fit quite so well, but is still beyond amusing.

And really, the bits of fannish I find most amusing? Almost all have a Hobbit connection.

It's been a while since I've been this head-over-heels in love with a new fandom. I can't deny that's part of it. But the more I think about it, Sherlock seems to be about the things I love most about Tolkien: cleverness and heart and friendship and sacrifice and falling from great heights without really dying and Martin Freeman's bedroom eyes and the British accents and...

Yeah. If anyone needs me, I'll be over here in the corner, trying not to squeal conspicuously.

    I don't send out cards anymore, but I was drooling over all the pop-up ones Amazon had and wondering if it might not be time to resume the tradition (I decided no).

    Not much help in the Hallmark…

    That's great! Happy Thanksgiving to you and thanks for the marching, musical cats. LOL
