WarningsCollapse )

Summary: A fill for the following Kink Meme prompt (excerpted): "Sherlock and John are captured by Bad Guy. They're drugged, and when they wake up they're in an unusual situation: they're in a small room, and Sherlock is halfway through the wall. Seriously. He's lying flat on his back, and is through a hole in the wall up to his waist. . . . John and Sherlock are talking, trying to figure out how to get out, when Sherlock suddenly tells John that on the other side of the wall someone is touching his legs. John realizes what's going to happen before Sherlock does. First he tries to save him, but when he realizes he can't he just tries to get Sherlock through it. . . .

"Super bonus points if Sherlock gets taken more than once. . . .

"Possibly save my soul from Hell (because I am going to hell for this prompt, no questions asked): if it turns out it never really happened. It was a dream, or they were drugged, or something."

Self-flagellation and capitalization.

I have so learned my lesson about writing and posting WIP's. It's like trying to lose weight with the entire world watching. Never again.

I have a question about capitalization. When using them as epithets, I've tended to capitalize "God" but not "jesus" or "christ," which I kind of suspect isn't great. It really looks and feels weird to me to capitalize the latter two--only in the context of epithets, mind--but also to not capitalize God, in any context. What style do you guys normally use?

A bit not good.

I've had an idea for a somewhat cracky, very porny, series-two-what-series-two Sherlock slash fic for a little while now.

I cannot possibly write it.

FOR ALL THE REASONS EVER.

I just thought I should make that clear.

Disclaimer: The main characters portrayed in this creative fanwork are fictionalized versions of real people. However, all of the situations and conversations depicted here are entirely my own invention. These things did not actually happen, and I am in no way attempting to claim that they did.
A/N: Hookay. A little bolder than Hey There Dalila in some respects, but also a lot more fun. Still approached with the utmost care and love for the people concerned, and if that ever appears to diminish, shut it the hell down. No particular season or universe; Aaron has hair because I say so.

Blame thanks blame attribution for the confidence to start posting some of these goes to readishmael.

NoSo: This fictionalized version of the characters does not acknowledge significant others.

Summary: They've made it past the part where Bryan glances up and smirks and then quits smirking long enough to hear Aaron's silence and then thinks Oh my holy mother of God. That part was heart-stopping, had to be.

And...actionCollapse )

A/N: *deep breath* This has been written very carefully and very lovingly. I pray that's apparent.

To readishmael and vegarin: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. "You have no idea."

Are we actually implementing the term NoSo yet? Anyway, this fictionalized version of the characters does not acknowledge significant others.

Summary: Bryan's lost his shit, blinks a road sign over his forehead. Expect major delays.

Oh it's what you do to meCollapse )

OMG.

New York Magazine posts a backstage-photo portfolio with shots from Community, The Good Wife, Breaking Bad, and Sons of Anarchy. There are some cute photos of Bryan Cranston and Vince Gilligan worth checking out, but also, THERE IS THIS:

Ah, pluralism.

Uh, so. almightychrissy liked the second one; fakepoptart liked the third one; readishmael liked the fourth one; communicator liked something else entirely; and ignazwisdom was drunk.

You guys are a BIG help.

*hugs you guys* :D

Actually, readishmael said in the comments that the third one could work, too. So maybe I'll give that one the edge.

I, of course, prefer the first one. To me it looks the cleanest, but I can also see how just leaving the exposition suspended out there without any punctuation might be something you'd want to avoid--which is what led me to this whole question in the first place. Trying to parse the second one gives me a headache, even though there's a real way in which I can see it being right. The third one seems like a pretty decent compromise. I don't like the fourth one because I dislike putting punctuation after em-dashes.

Does anybody have Chicago handy? I can't find my hard copy and apparently I only dreamed that I had a subscription to the online version.

ETA: Okay, two three more people have weighed in and are supporting the third one. I can definitely get behind that.

Help me out, fellow writers/editors!

Something different? (But please don't tell me to just use commas instead!)

Summary: Alan's had a rough episode. But he's not about to unload on Denny, if that's what you're thinking.

Denny CraneCollapse )

I can't sleep!

Fortunately, hot actors are hot.

You know what else is hot, Bryan? LIGHT BULBS.
