things I've been reading

... and liked enough to want to point out to you guys. Check them out if it's your thing.

(1) The Cleverness of Me by Solshine. A charming BBC Sherlock story where Sherlock is Peter Pan and Mycroft one of the Lost Boys, right up until the point they aren't. I want to write a full review when I find the time, but this one definitely comes with the Marta seal of approval.

(2) Kindred Spirits by daasgrrl. The author describes it as "Character study with a side order of porn, or possibly the other way around." And really, it should not be possible to combine PWP (or erotica, if it has too much other stuff to qualify for that label) with casefic in the same damned scene, yet here we are. Holmescest, and explicit at that, but so well-written I was thinking about it and blushing inappropriately (or just lost in thought over said "other stuff") at random intervals for two days afterwards.

(3) Sherlock, Sally and Otherness. A BBC Sherlock meta about Sally Donovan and Sherlock, the way they are an "other" on the outskirts of respectable character types, and the way they manage the risks that involves. Very thought-provoking stuff.

(4) Shampoo is Dead, Long Live Shampoo. A bit of a look at the product's history.

(5) The First Pap Smears Were Done on Drunk Guinea Pigs. For once, that article title isn't at all clickbait or misleading. Gloriously so, really.

I also mentioned it over at Tumblr, but I've recently discovered a really charming and clever Mrs. Hudson-centric, Victorian!Sherlock comic. The Adventures of Mrs. Hudson by Aristofranes. RSS here for folks who aren't regularly on Tumblr.

I've also been writing a bit about my reaction to BBC Sherlock over at Tumblr, so if you're interested in that check out my meta tag. Specifically, there's been a bit of grousing about Moffat and series three, talking about Mycroft in the script fragments released in Sherlock Chronicles, more series three grousing, and some reaction to the deleted series three scene, in that order starting with the most recent.
