why do I keep getting sucked into really weird fics

flatbear:

So today, boss tasked me with coming up with a few of these to put around the store! Little info sheets to help anyone nervous/overwhelmed/confused about where to start with comics!
It’s by no means a comprehensive list; just a few store favorites and really great books that we always keep in stock to recommend. I’ll be doing some more over the next few weeks…deadpool, avengers, iron man, cap, and more! As well as a couple of SO YOU WANT TO READ MARVEL sheets for characters that don’t have enough of a backlog for a whole sheet. Then on to DC, and different genres of other comics!
I’m very excited! It’s based on an idea kellysue shared with me last year but we both got WAY too busy to do anything with it, so I thought I would put it here for everyone to share around, and maybe it will help get some people reading great comics!

Oh Jeremy.

Ok, friends, have a seat. I wanna school you on a thing.
Do you recognize this kickass lady, here? It’s ok if you don’t. That’s why we’re having this talk. This adorbs vision is none other than the freaking fabulous Maurissa Tancharoen, writer, producer, and fucking showrunner for Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD.
Y’all like Agents of SHIELD, right? Like all that snappy dialogue? Those great characters? Mo Tancharoen is who you should be thanking. Yeah, I know we’ve got the Whedon name slapped all over everything, and yeah that ups the numbers. But, y’all, Joss fucked off to go work on Avengers 2. This bonafide badass is who he left flying the quinjet.
Oh, did you see Doctor Horrible’s Sing-along Blog? Yeah, a lot of that was her, too. And Much Ado About Nothing? That eerie, gorgeous soundtrack? Also her. Were you one of those folks, like me, who thought Dollhouse was genius and really could have been something amazing? Guess who ran the show on that one. 
That’s right. 
Oh yeah, and she worked on the Avengers script, too. Also those Spartacus series on STARZ that apparently a lot of people liked. 
Basically, Mo Tancharoen is a goddess of geek media, and, y’know, Asian-American with Thai roots. So she is an extra hardcore WoC getting shit done.
So when you talk about AoS - the good and the bad, the writing, the story arcs, and all the other shit we flail about - there is no fucking reason to bring Joss into it unless you’re talking about how this glorious queen’s contributions are erased and overshadowed by this white dude.
Maurissa Tancharoen, friends. Now you know.

For S4, John needs to just be completely fucked up injured, like stabbed or shot or both, and just for Sherlock to fucking RAGE. It needs to be way beyond canon Garridebs, waaaay beyond that. Sherlock needs to flip.his.shit. and just go crazy on whoever hurt John. John needs to see that. He needs to see the rawness and the ferocity of Sherlock’s love for him. He needs to understand that Sherlock loves him as fiercely as he loves Sherlock.

The Final Problem

tookmyskull:

Wilma Norman Neruda, originally Wilhelmine Maria Franziska Neruda, later Lady Halle, was born in 1838 in Brno Moravia, then part of the Austrian Empire. She was one of Sherlock Holmes’ favorite violinists.

Like Irene Adler, she was a strong, independent woman and a barrier breaker, becoming a world famous concert violinist at a time when it was considered improper for a woman to play the violin. Weird, but true.

Her first husband was Ludwig Norman Neruda, a famous alpine mountain climber.  Four years later, estranged, she moved to London with her son. Norman died in 1885. She married the German-English musician Charles Halle in 1888. When he was knighted later the same year, she became Lady Hallé.

“And now for lunch, and then Norman-Neruda. Her attack and her bowing are splendid. What’s that little thing of Chopin’s she plays so magnificently: Tra-la-la-lira-lira-lay.”

Leaning back in the cab, this amateur bloodhound carolled away like a lark while I meditated upon the many-sidedness of the human mind. ~~ A Study in Scarlet
