It's always a good day when you can make a classical reference  
I did a small friends cut, most probably won't notice. I just sort of removed people I never talk to or have no similar interests anymore.

I sort of wish I could be more into Sherlock fandom because it seems like EVERYONE is going apeshit and I'm over here in my corner, eating some Tapioca pudding, nodding slightly and saying, "yeah, I feel that." Don't get me wrong: I LOVED the second series and I reblog awesome posts on tumblr, but I'm not reading fics or watching vids.

Is anyone else watching the Nostalgia Critic's Star Trek month? I was super excited when I first heard he was doing something Star Trek, but so far I haven't been impressed. He's just reviewing the bad ones and he has barely anything new to say. I bet I'll like the reviews better when it goes into TNG era since I haven't seen those movies and know little about TNG. Also come on, he has not made one K/S related joke. How can you watch these movies and not include at least one lame throwaway joke? I mean, do people really look at this

and see nothing of note? He didn't even show the scene, and it's easily the best part of the first movie (some would say the only good part.) And that's bullshit because of the three Star Trek movies Rifftrax has done, there are several hilarious slashy jokes. I swear, if you never saw Star Trek and watched these reviews first, you'd barely know Kirk and Spock were that close and that's a friggen crime. It's like me reviewing The Illiad and making it seem like Achilles was mildly acquainted with Patroclus. It's annoying and quite an understatement.

I saw an icon once with a picture of Kirk and Spock staring at each other from about four inches apart. The legend was, "My Fandom Invented Slash". I'd completely forgotten that when they started publishing fanfiction originally, at the earliest cons, "slash" was short for "Kirk / Spock".

I should have copied the thing - I never found it again.

Re: *sigh*
Your comment just reminded me of this icon I saved a while back, so maybe it will mend the hole in your heart. :)

Yay! I made the cut!!! I am awesome!!!!

While I haven't been doing the Nostalgia Crit Rewatch, I spontaneously watched the first ST film yesterday and had forgotten how great Spock looked with semi-long hair and how pre-occupied with him Jim was! ADORABLE EXPLOSION!

I've been working on a Sherlock rec list that avoids all the kinds of Watson is sad whatev stuff I keep seeing. I'm being pretty meticulous not just about the quality of writing but about how imaginative is the story. Sadly, AO3 hasn't been firing on all cylinders all week so I may not have many authors from there. Hopefully you'll find something interesting when I post this list of Sherlock fic bad-assert.

Oh silly, of course you made it. :)

Ooh you should link me. I sort of want to read Sherlock fic, but I don't want to go out and find it. I just want to read the absolute best, you know?

where is that rewatch?? and why is not the sickbay scene??
in tumbrl the little i been there i posted sherlock is truth and star trek, and some xmen.

but in my journal i'm still in the last chapters of my advent Kirk/Spock and fighting for freedom in the net, but we losing against Acta ;____;

the States don't accept sopa and pipa but agreed with Acta who is worse!
and now is the turn of Europe and we have so few signatures and poland already approved Acta ;______________;

Read my fic if you have the time... I think i made something good this time, but no one read it ;__; at least i want to know why?

It's not a rewatch, it's a video review. Normally I'm a big fan of his and I love a lot of reviewers on the site, but the Star Trek reviews he did recently were pretty boring and not his usual awesome. I mean, he's a regular fanboy so I'm not expecting any slash, but come on, you figured he'd put a lot of emphasis on Kirk and Spock regardless. I'd definitely recommend watching some of his other videos, ESPECIALLY the Star Wars Christmas Special or Sonic the Hedgehog.

I feel the same way about Sherlock as you do. I loved the second series and I have reblogged pretty much every angsty Reichenbach post on tumblr (and teared up over all of them) but I'm not in the fandom at all. I haven't read any fic since about three weeks after the first season aired and I never watch vids. I can't really explain why I feel no urge to dive into the Sherlock fandom, I think it might be because I am perfectly satisfied with what is happening in canon, or maybe it's something else, but yeah I'm not feeling it.
Big Mama G: Sherlock/Johnbigmamag on January 27th, 2012 08:50 pm (UTC)
Maybe that's it, but I dunno. Maybe it's like my Queer as Folk thing. Loved the show, never read or needed fanfic. So, they are so slashy it's practically canon. :) I would read a great Sherlock fic, I just don't feel like actively searching for it.

I know what you mean about Sherlock. I adore the show, but I'm not pining to read fic or anything. I kind of like reading gen in this fandom, but that's a bit like trying to find that ONE PARTICULAR NEEDLE in a stack of needles.

I didnt hear about nostalgia critic's star trek month but I dont know, maybe he's worried he'll be grouped wiht the shippers. >.>

Abour Sherlock I didn't even read a single fic after first season and now I'm reading from time to time (after The Fall) because I'm not into SPN anymore and i need my fic fix from SOMEWHERE.

I am actually brand new to Star Trek. I'm watching it on Netflix...and...dude. Their smirks are filled with unrequited sexual tension. OTP: Space husbands. So...hi!
