Sherlock episodes 2 and 3

Sherlock episode 2 wasn't as good as episode 1, but episode 3 was excellent.

Now, that being said - absolutely cruel to end it there boys! CRUEL! Are you telling me I have to wait until AUGUST for the dramatic conclusion? This is worse than that time Dean went to Hell.

I must go off and find the fandom surrounding this show - as I suddenly require copious amounts of friendship-schmoop. Oh friendship...how I adore you. (The irony of me ignoring my own friends to watch shows about friendship is not lost on me.)

You know what else I discovered in the 3rd episode? Benedict Cumberbatch (btw: most glorious British name ever) sounds amazingly like Alan Rickman. I like him. I like him a lot. Plus he has those adorable little slanted eyes. Also, I find Watson's slightly greying hair sort of sexy. In conclusion: boys are pretty.

If anyone has some Sherlock fandom links for me, please share in comments (I'll take slash too, but it has to be REALLY good, so don't bother with mediocre links .....haha, I love how I always take on the personality of whoever I've just been watching. I'll go shower the Sherlock Holmes off of me before I offend anyone.)

I'll share the only two Sherlock fics I've read, both of which are awesome gen stories. The first one was written right after the pilot was aired, the second one is a crossover with HP. :D

Homemaking - Gen, 4,535 words - The original plan for returning to England involved fucking around being shellshocked and suffering mandatory post-combat counseling and physical therapy to dissect the shattered mosaic of his feelings. That's not quite how it goes.

The Case of the Unwelcome Owl - Gen, HP/Sherlock crossover, 7458 words - It certainly wasn't the first time he'd been woken up at ridiculous o'clock; it wasn't even the first time he'd been woken up at ridiculous o'clock in London, in the comfort of his own flat. But as John Watson's fingers closed reflexively over the handle of the bedside drawer, yanked, and then plunged inside to close around the familiar weight of his side arm, he realised that it was the first time he'd been woken up by Sherlock Holmes silhouetted on the threshold of his room, with a feather in his hair, snapping his fingers peremptorily and announcing: “Gun. Now.”

Just read both of them! Thank! (I totally ditched an hour of work to do it too...yay me!).

I especially like the crossover...I may just rec it myself in a proper post.

Thanks again!

Yes, I was upset to realize there were no more episodes and left with the damn cliffhanger. And then to find out I have to wait a year--so frustrating! I would agree that episode 2 is the weakest of the three, but I figured out who was causing the chaoes in episode 1 before Sherlock announced it and not the others.

I agree with you about the name of the actor who plays Sherlock.

This is going to sound really pretentious, but I figured out nearly all of the chaos-causers before Sherlock announced them - not necessarily ALL plot-points, but yeah...I don't mind though. I actually don't like it when I don't know more (or have figured out more) than the protagonists.

I think episode 2 was the weakest of the three because they spend too much time trying to have an elaborate plot and not enough time getting me to care about the characters (or developing them further).

I'm glad I'm not the only one that noticed that he sounds like Alan Rickman :D. It does really suck that we have to wait almost an entire year for more episodes though and to end with a cliffhanger is even worse!

I agree! I almost wish I had waited a whole year to watch these episodes so that I could just load up 2x01 and see what happens. But alas...I'll have to suffer like I was meant to.

And yay for someone else noticing the Alan Rickman quality to Benedict Cumberbatch! It took me until the opening scene of episode 3, and then I clued into why I was digging his voice so much - it's REALLY noticeable in that scene where he's correcting the prisoners grammar.

Here are some more Sherlock fics:

The Lonely Doctors Club (or: Two Doctors Walked into a Pub) - Sherlock (BBC)/Doctor Who Crossover. Two doctors meet in a pub and find out they have quite a bit in common.

"Someone on Whom" - Doctor Who/Sherlock crossover, gen, PG. "It makes a considerable difference to me, having someone on whom I can thoroughly rely." Doctor Who/Sherlock crossover, set during the year that wasn't.

Thanks! I'll wait for another day when I can safely ditch work (or the weekend) and give those two a go!
