Hi! I’m off to errand but first, 3 things:
1. My ankle and foot are better. Swelling down. Cramps gone. Yay.
2. I forgot to mention this in a previous post: for everyone but especially the new followers: if there is a tag you’d like me to use, please ask! I post explicit words and pics sometimes and also a lot of food (I’m an omnivore) and booze (I like fancy cocktails). You may not wish to see slash or booze or bacon. It’s cool! Also, unfollowing is also OK. Or unfollowing and re following. Sometimes I have to do the same to avoid a topic or fandom or even a style of discourse/engagement - and that doesn’t mean anything more usually than I need a break. Like if you post non stop about cauliflower recipes that’s OK but it’s not for me.
3. And perhaps most crucially: hiddenlacuna is the reason I drifted off to sleep wondering about what kind of tiny, vicious creatures might lurk in the mustache of John Watson or the (magnificent) beard of Thorin Oakenshield. She’s something else y’all.
Why, no, I never get fic ideas as I read articles about the demimonde in 18th century Paris.
There’s something kinda appealing (in a probably a bit not good way) to PTSquee. Post traumatic stress squee. I’ve got PTSD, but I’m doing well enough to be squeeful ATM, so SQUEE! … No?
You make me grin. Especially because the PTSquee sounds like a car to me…
*announcer voice* The new 2015 PTSquee - the most exciting driving experience on -and off!- the road. Test drive one today! /announcer voice.
In fact, I think I’m gonna imagine every fandom term, mashup, trope, etc. as a car. *announcervoice* The new Vauxhall Warstan minivan. For family AND fun! … The 2014 Omega!Lock - a smooth ride that seats four! … Mazda announced today a recall on all model years for the MorMor as unsafe at any speed.
So today has been a bit of a rough day in the Sherlock fandom. I’m sad to see that but I hope everyone in the fandom is or will be doing OK in spite of it.
I’ve already poured my heart out on my blog once this week, and surely no one needs to see more of that, so I’m not *currently* inclined to say a lot more here.
I also can’t and don’t want to come across as speaking for either of two groups I belong to: domestic abuse survivors and johnlock shippers (PTSD + squee = psqueed?) but if anyone wants to talk on a person to person level, there’s the ask box or email or pigeons or interpretive dance or whatever.
At the risk of sounding even weirder than usual, if you are in this fandom, I bid you peace & love. Even if we don’t agree. Maybe especially then. :)
