Oh gosh… the answer to that wouldn’t fit in the limited space given here.
I love almost everything by NairobiWonders. If i listed every story I loved by her you’d never get through it all. I suggest just going to her archive and reading up: http://archiveofourown.org/users/NairobiWonders/pseuds/NairobiWonders
I also really like a lot of the stuff Time Converges writes: http://archiveofourown.org/users/time_converges/pseuds/time_converges
…and language escapes: http://archiveofourown.org/users/language_escapes/pseuds/language_escapes
Language escapes writes really well. Her story “for the sane mad and bravest of monsters” isn’t really what I would normally read because it’s not really even Joanlock but i still loved it so much. I loved the background on Sherlock. Her other story, “the lopsided symmetry of sin and virtue’ is much more popular and has a more fun concept of joan and sherlock pretending to be married for a case… so it’s great. But i think this is actually her stronger fic.
I normally would stay away from this genre in this fandom… i honestly just didn’t think anyone could write sherlock convincingly as a father. But i have to say these are great. I think they may be some of my fav stories:
You think in season 3 we could find out that in her anger and hurt about Sherlock just leaving, Joan decided to focus a lot on her self-defense and she came across Melinda May through some case she took on. So Melinda starts training her. She excelled so much that she’s secretly become a member of Shield. When Sherlock comes back, it’s because MI-6 has been investigating her for being a bad guy. He comes back to try to clear her, but sees her kick-ass skills and that she’s working and involved with Andrew, who’s a suspected bad-guy. So even he starts to think she’s bad. But by the end of the first episode we find out she’s really just undercover for Shield. And Andrew was part of her assignment and and Kitty turns out to be Hydra…
So, a few weeks ago, JLM retweeted a comment from Piers Morgan about how nothing has changed with gun laws in the US since Sandy Hook. And so, this guy keeps writing to Jonny on Twitter about how he should go back to Britain and he’s comparing him to Pol Pot and Stalin, et al. And other generally nasty ‘immigrant’ comments.
So what is JLM doing? He’s retweeting them. And it’s fucking hilarious. The guy keeps saying nastier and more ignorant things and JLM is retweeting all of them. And so all of JLM’s fans are going ape in the comments and JLM isn’t saying anything.
I don’t know… I just think JLM’s retweeting of this bashing he’s getting from some ignorant dickhead— and lack of verbal response— is hilarious.
I need to confess that I hate it when the misogynist comment that Joan Watson is a woman to provide “a love interest” for Sherlock pops up on Tumblr and the default answer from the fandom is “no she’s not a love interest”. The people making that misogynistic comment aren’t concerned about a…
Thank you, OP, for saying what I wasn’t eloquent (or patient) enough to say. This is almost exactly how I feel, but I just haven’t been able to put it into words.
So a lot of people don’t know the canon of Kitty Winter. There’s a bit of backstory on her from ACD canon, and well as older films. Possible spoilers under the cut if you don’t want to know anything at all.
ohkate.tumblr.com (what a waste of a question! Here’s a better one: 'Name a random thing that freaks you out.': Answer: Men with long fingernails.)
'Oh Kate'… although it should just be called 'Elementary's Bitch' at this point. I wish I knew how to quit you…
All the Joanlockers on tumblr who don’t feel the need to apologize for it. Extra points to those of you who write fic. Extra, extra points to those of you who write smutty fic. And if you write smutty, well-written and realistic fic… you win all the points. Did I mention there are points? My love can be bought.
Green. And blue. And black. And white. Sometimes red. It all depends on my levels of PMS. I’d apologize to the guys on tumblr for that comment, but we all know there aren’t any guys on tumblr.
Oh fuck, that’s like Sophie’s Choice. I just can’t. I need to take a valium just thinking about this question.
Alabama Slammer. Oh, you meant without alcohol? Coke.
I think it’s so sweet how in love JLM is with his son. I’ve been looking at his instagram and he’s just completely sweet. I know we don’t know him, but he just seems like a great father. I’m kind of surprised he doesn’t have more kids. He seems like he just loves them.
Even in the scene from Elementary where he’s asking people to punch him because of Anonymous, when the kid comes up and does it JLM can’t hide his smirk.
I’m one of those woman who just melts when I see guys with kids. I’d love to see Sherlock dealing with a kid on the show, some smart little guy who wanders into his life through a case, and he ends up really liking the kid.
I don’t know. The pics got my ovaries all in an uproar. I need to go read some Joanlock babyfics now.
Not sure if you’ve gotten the memo, but fuck Kitty Winter. Fuck her living in the brownstone. Fuck her being ‘hard at work’. Fuck her. And fuck this plotline until we get a better idea of how it’s going to bring Joan and Sherlock back together as partners and as friends with the kind of unbreakable connection we always thought they had. Because, in case you didn’t know, they’re the ones we care about. We can’t get excited about these miscellaneous characters because you’ve kind of fucked up the only ones we really care about in the end.
So stop trying to make Kitty Winter happen. It’s not going to happen.
