Even though my favorite song of his is ‘LIFE’, I generally prefer when he does the Eroica j-rock thing… but you can’t fault him for taking advantage of the fact that his drama roles since Indigo No Yoru have raised his profile among a specific demographic. ;D
This post will be periodically updated with new recs. Last updated: 10/30
It has been a long long time since a show has grabbed my attention the way Sherlock has, to the point that I’ve been completely neglecting, well, pretty much anything that is not Sherlock related. So I thought I’d just rec links related to this awesome little show that has pretty much just eaten my brain the past few weeks.
Probably anyone that is into Sherlock fandom knows these, but oh well…
SherlockBBC – extremely active, very awesome LJ comm for Sherlock. Obviously, there’s a ton of fanfic (slash, gen, cracky crossovers, what have you), but it’s also a great place for actual discussion and meta.
CumberbatchFans – if in the past 3 or 4 weeks you have developed, like I have, the most ridiculous crush on Benedict Cumberbatch, then check out this comm.
(I should maybe mention that as far as I’m concerned, Sherlock is canonically asexual. This doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy slash, though).
The Thermodynamis series – by [ljuser]entangled_now[/ljuser]. This series is hands down my favorite Sherlock fic(s). It’s cute in exactly the way Sherlock fic should be cute: with a bit of awkwardness, matter of fact, very amusing; and also sexy in exactly the way Sherlock should be sexy, which includes acknowledges the fact that he’s most likely asexual, and works organically with that, and it ends up being integral to how delicious the whole thing is.
The Rules – In which there are rules, and John breaks them.
You’re a difficult equation – by [ljuser]folkhore[/ljuser]. Pre-slash. Short, and just really beautifully written. John’s honing his own skills of observation; they’re all practiced watching Sherlock…watching Sherlock too closely.
We. – by [ljuser]footshooter[/ljuser]. Post The Great Game, Sherlock POV.
Wasted Daylight – by [ljuser]skuldydrabble[/ljuser]. Slash. Morning after fic, nothing graphic, but hints at what happened subtly and beautifully.
From Irene – with love and E-numbers – by [ljuser]elapsedspiral[/ljuser] “She’s an ex-girlfriend?” “Oh no,” Sherlock said with evidence distaste, “Far better than that. An adversary.”
untouchable; john & sherlock – by starbrights90. I don’t anticipate embedding very many videos in here (and will put them behind a cut if I do embed any more!), but this one in particular is just beautiful.
Apparently he did! This is called Cherry The Dustmanand I have no idea if this was solo or with that band he was in (*insert comment about Deppiness here*), apparently it’s a collaboration, so neither. Anyway! Would appreciate any info about this or other singles of his.
