interesting Tolkien-centric blog

My Google alert has recently turned up a rather interesting blog: Tolkien: Medieval and Modern. It appears to be a blog for a class where students write reflections on various Tolkienian concepts and I'm not sure I'd feel comfortable commenting, but even if that's not an option, I find some of the topics they're discussing to be fascinating. Shortish but well-written and clearly written by people with a deep knowledge of Tolkien's writings. Fans of the book may find it worth a poke-around.

BBC Sherlock Fic: untitled Johnlock wedding schmoopage

For the life of me, I can't figure out where this came from. My Tumblr page has been full of people exchanging little summaries of moments between John and Sherlock in cute and romantic moments, and I guess it caught up with me a bit. I was writing one myself, about Sherlock seeing John entering the chapel for their wedding and doing the eye-blinky thing, and for some reason it came out as actual fic.

This isn't my usual work for weeks and sweat bullets and run through three separate betas process - just a bit of fic that came out quite naturally, that I had no intention of writing but that I'm actually quite fond of. If it sounds like your kind of thing, do check it out.
