First of all, here are some pics from october, when I visited the Holmes' museum. I quite liked the decoration of some corners and I even got a pic with pseudo-Watson (not that he looked at all like Watson should -not even the clothes!- but well, let's not be too picky about it *ahem*).
So this is how 221B Baker Street looks like nowadays =>> )
I'd love to be in London this weekend for the Sherlock fan meet-up~

Also, I'm not sure how I got to find out about this Versus series but they're hilarious. I'm not sure either what kind of association can result in a Saw vs. Sherlock Holmes duel... Guess some minds work in mysterious ways:


I must admit I feel a little affronted by the treatment of dear Watson here...

(Ps: You should also watch the one about Frodo vs Harry Potter XD)

And finally, gorgeous Sherlock fics of the last two weeks:

* The Velveteen Doctor by [livejournal.com profile] lantean_drift, in which John is like a bright, brilliant flash of colour in an otherwise greyscale world for Sherlock.

* Fearful Symmetry by [livejournal.com profile] irisbleufic, in which there's John/Sherlock, Harry, Mycroft, Sarah, Mrs. Hudson, et al. and it's absolutely delightful.

* The Whore of Babylon Was a Perfectly Nice Girl by out_there. This. You should read it if you haven't yet. It's not the version of Sherlock I usually picture in my head but it's awesome. Angsty and hot.

* The Heart In The Whole by [livejournal.com profile] verityburns. WIP in which Sherlock is blind and John helps. All kinds of lovely and oh god, the UST!

Have I mentioned they're gorgeous? Because they are <3

Woot!

I began Sunday with wonderful news: my original fic about dance has won the first prize in the contest Danza Digital! They'll publish it in the next number of the magazine and I've got a voucher to buy a lot of things in an awesome shop :D

If you're curious, HERE's the English version of the tale, and HERE the original one in Spanish.


On the other hand, life in Oxford keeps on being fantastic. There's so much to see and do! Yesterday I went to London and indulge myself some whims from the Sherlock Holmes museum XD The museum itself it's not exactly what I think 221B Baker St. should be but it's curious and amusing. Maybe I post some pics later. The thing is that I also went to the British Museum and I had been in the Ashmolean Museum the day before. This is problematic mainly for economical reasons: I can't help myself in museum's shops ;_;

And talking about museums, I'm applying for the Ashmolean 'cause I've been lucky enough to be here the moment they've decided to take curricula again. We'll see...

In the meantime, have a Sherlock fanvid with a suggestive song~

Should be training right now but I don't feel like it, too lazy today -...my sensei would smack me on the head but, in my defense, I'll say I had to wake up too early for my taste and it's awfully windy to go anywhere. On the other hand, it's being a weird summer: nor vacation abroad with friends like other years and, surprisingly enough, nor archaeological excavation either. I've been working there every summer during the last eight years, with its highs and lows, so it's kind of disconcerting to think about an August working at home. Don't get me wrong, I'm gonna miss some people but it's liberating to count with more time to work on my thesis: I'm reaching that point where all I want is to finish the damn big thing. And this way I could book a few days to relax.

And yet, of course I have my little pleasures: Of course, I'm utterly in love with the new BBC Sherlock XD Can't remember who said it but it's a great moment to be a Holmes' fan! <3 I couldn't imagine I was going to like Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman so much! they're perfect for the roles and Oh, all the slash potential:

-It's fantastic.
-Do you know you do that out loud?
-Sorry, I'll shut up.
-No, it's...fine.

♥♥♥

Which reminds me, [livejournal.com profile] sadynax is killing me with her lovely chibis ♥

I'm also enjoying immensely the amount of fics this series's already producing~

But, here, have two Holmes/Watson big bang fics I loved (not Sherlock's universe):

-A study in midnight: crossover with A Study in Emerald.

-Roll away your stone


Now, I really should try to be productive for a little while longer...
