Whatever tickles your fancy
so, i thought because it's an open day on the meme, i would talk about a couple of fandom "in-jokes" or quirks that the fandom has come up with to combat the longing between seasons. i have to say that i'm proud to be a member of the Sherlock Holmes fandom, the oldest in the world, but some of these are so extreme that i hardly know what to think about them.
starting us off is, of course, Otterlock and john hog. *grins* they are probably my all time favorite of the wilder parts of the fandom. those two pics are from a longer set for "Fall" and i thought they would work well to start off today. check my Sherlock tag for the post that has the comparison pics in it. the similarities really is quite frightful. lol.
Jam. yes, you read that right. Jam. it's from here. http://sherlockdict.tumblr.com/post/4250083363/jam-john
i'll be honest. there have been times after reading about the John's jam fixation that i have had random giggle fits over the word jam. there's also an excellent kink!fic with Sherlock and Lestrade where Sherlock provides the jam for their early morning sexual adventures (not sure about using it as lube though) and i can just picture John in the kitchen wondering where his jam went to.
Milk. this one asks the simple question. why do they never have any milk in the flat? what do they do with it? where does it go? i have my suspicions, but it would spoil the fic i want to write about it. *giggles*
pancakes. the fandom will randomly replace random words with the word pancake. it's actually funnier than it sounds. especially when they do it to Sherlock. if anyone wants, i can find pics/gifs with pancakes.
Anderson and dinosaurs. http://fanlore.org/wiki/Anderson_%28Sherlock%29
as the fangirls say, "anderson, go f--- a dinosaur."
for more randomness from the fandom, if you dare, it's pretty warped, go here. http://sherlockdict.tumblr.com/
