Dear tumblr,

It’s your fault I am laughing my butt off and eating lychees with consultingsmartarse….
I guess what I’m trying to say is thank you.

Quote
"I heard him [Fincher] once describe directing. It was the greatest description of directing I ever heard. He sort of said “Imagine painting… but you’re 200 yards away from the canvas. And 80 people are holding the brush. And you’re on a walkie-talkie going, ‘We need a little blue there. No, no, no, darker blue. No, DARKER BLUE.’”"

Ficbit of the Day

frequentcafes:

John is quiet for a moment. “This isn’t a dream, Sherlock.”

“Prove it,” Sherlock whispers. “Be here when I wake up.”

From Reciprocation by patternofdefiance

Oh my, thank you for this!

Evelyn: Look, I… I may not be an explorer, or an adventurer, or a treasure-seeker, or a gunfighter, Mr. O’Connell, but I am proud of what I am.
Rick: And what is that? 
Evelyn: I… am a librarian.

OH MY GOD

Voting for The Holmsies is NOW OPEN!

patternofdefiance:

sherlockbbcficrecs:

Hi all!

After months of reading through the THOUSANDS of amazing fics that were submitted to the Holmsies, we’re happy to finally let you know that we’re ready to announce nominations and accept votes.

Nominations were decided by the mods of fuckyeahteenlock and sherlockbbcficrecs. The maximum number of nominations per category is five, but some categories have fewer fics - these categories had fewer submissions than others, and we didn’t feel it would be fair to always include five for every category (e.g., if there were only seven submitted total).

As a reminder from when we started the Holmsies, all the fics on the list should have less than 25,000 hits on AO3 and less than 250 reviews/comments on any other forum - we did calculate hits as of when we received the submissions a few months ago, so there are a small number of fics that have crossed that limit since. They’re still included in the nominations.

You’re always welcome to give us feedback in the notes based on your experience engaging with this contest this year, and we’ll do our best to incorporate the most-often-stated comments when we do this the next time around.

You can access the Google form that we will be using to collect votes HERE. Only one submission per person, please - if you’d like to edit your votes after you’ve finished, you must save the link provided once you hit “submit.” We CANNOT find this for you later!

The remainder of this post consists of links to all the nominated fics. Please reblog and share this post so that we can get the largest potential sample of the Sherlock fandom to vote. 

We will be closing voting on September 1st, 2014, giving you about a month and a half to vote. 
Thanks so much, and for now, happy happy HAPPY reading!

consultingsmartarse:

Title: The Doctor’s Prescription (Or: Five Times Sherlock Didn’t Say Anything And One Time He Did)
Author: patternofdefiance
Reader: consulting_smartass
Fandom: BBC Sherlock
Pairing: Sherlock Holmes/John Watson
Rating: Explicit
Genre/Tags: Glasses, First Time, 5+1 Format
Length: 30:51

Summary: It’s not that he didn’t notice John’s aesthetic qualities before the glasses – it’s simply that the sudden, unexpected addition of them has called attention, no – forced attention, commanded it, really – and Sherlock finds himself caught on the hook of John’s gaze again and again and again.

In the mornings over newspapers, in the afternoons over medical journals, in the evening over corpses…
