Wow, it's been a while...

Like years even...~_~

I still have a few fanfic pieces that I still need to publish and of course, even though it's been years since the last update, I do want to eventually finish "Come What May&" but right now nothing has gotten my attention so firmly then the BBC series Sherlock starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. I think once the new Sailormoon series debuts my writing juices for "Come What May" will be jump-started again. Until then, why don't you try some Sherlock fanfic to tide you over? These are only the tip in the iceberg when looking through the fandom's offerings of great fanfics.

Alone on the Water
a Sherlock fanfiction by madlorific
Pairing: Sherlock/John
Rating: G
Warnings: character death, angst

This is one of the most well known Sherlock fanfics online. If you aren't crying by the end, you don't have a heart.

Performance in a Leading Role
Author: madlorific
Pairing: Sherlock/John
Genre: AU, romance
Warnings: None
Rating: PG for now, may go up to NC-17 later
Summary: Sherlock Holmes is an Oscar winner in the midst of a career slump. John Watson is an Everyman actor trapped in the rom-com ghetto. When they are cast as a gay couple in a new independent drama, will they surprise each other? Will their on-screen romance make its way into the real world?
Another great story by madlorific. I love AU's and this one was really well done.

What to do When Your Flatmate is Homicidal by hyacinth_sky747
Rating: Explicit
Summary: Sherlock takes Molly's advice when dealing with his dangerous flatmate.

Just flat out funny.

Indecorous by Basingstoke
Rating: Explicit
Summary: In which John learns to balance a kinky girlfriend, an asexual boyfriend, a ten-inch cock, his sister, the neighbours, his friends, and his blog. Some are more balanced than others.

Another funny story but this time we get a Mary Morstan who is not a villain and is a pretty cool, developed character of her own.

Also, here are a few great Sherlock authors:

Totally Random... (Katekyō Hitman Reborn!)

Okay, so like i was watching the latest fansubs of Katekyō Hitman Reborn! and the anime's at the 10 year arc and the credits show the guardian's all grown up and yummy.  I mean seriously hot, even extreme!Ryohei grew up hot.  I even like rewinded the credits to watch it all over again, how sad is that?  Though I have to admit I was a bit disappointed at how Yamamoto looked.  I think it was the scar.  I just didn't care much for it on his chin.  I think if it was in a different place, it would be a different story for me...but oh well. 

(I always knew Gokudera-kun was going to grow up smokin...)

Haha, I know it's been a while since I posted anything.  I am working on the next chapter of CwM, though I really don't know when it'll be posted.  On a totally separate note, I am currently doing  a study abroad in London, England which is supremely awesome and has kept me busy.  Just last week I went to Wimbledon Stadium for the tour and I don't even watch or play tennis.  I went because I like Prince of Tennis and thought 'Oh, if I go to Wimbledon, if I ever write about it in my fics, my descriptions would be accurate.'  How sad is that?

Monster by Urasawa Naoki

For the past three days I've been reading this series non-stop.  It's quite excellent in terms of plot, characters, and exececution.  That said, I wanted to encourage those who haven't read it to to do so.  It is available in english courtesy of Viz.  However, for those who want to try it first, I have the first 3 volumes available for download.

Summary at ANN: When a doctor makes the highly controversial decision to save a boy's life over the mayor's, it leads to the loss of almost everything he holds dear. His fiance, his career, his social standing. The only thing he keeps is his own feeling of self worth, knowing that he did the right thing in saving the boy, who came in first. Yet even that is threatened when he begins to learn that nothing is as it originally appeared. A trail of bloodshed pointing to the seemingly innocent child leaves him questioning even his beliefs. Whether, in the end, all lives are ever truly equal.

Volume 1
Volume 2
Volume 3

[Fic Recs] Hikaru no Go

Hmm, I think I should note that my fic recs are actually a way for me to remember great fics I've read, whether they be old or new, so a majority of all the stories I rec will probably have been recced somewhere already by now...

Drunken Promise by issen4 - This is the first in a series that involves Hikaru getting drunk with Kuwabara.  I love this series!

When He Sees It by thehoyden - Shindou/Touya, the author labels this NC-17, but I don't think it's that  graphic at all.

Bloodstone by Nataku - Vampire!Hikaru fic!

The Rumour Mill by harukami - Akira/Hikaru, The author labels this as NSFW but it's not really graphic at all. 

A Whole New Apocalypse by bookshop - Akira/Hikaru, PG-13 (Yay, a rec for a fic that not over an R rating)

Untitled by bookshop - Akira/Hikaru, totally work safe
