Forensic Protocol (Sherlock, Sherlock/John)

“My partner, John Watson, is dead.”

Sherlock kept his voice even as he adjusted the camera for the optimal angle, to capture the squeaking and snapping as he donned the latex gloves (black, powder-free, extended cuff), stretching them past his wrists.

John lay sprawled across the rug, nude, limbs askew and head lolled to one side. Sherlock crawled over him, speaking to the camera. “No sign of violence or resistance. Possibly sedated, will take blood sample.”

John shivered only slightly as the long gloved fingers skimmed his skin, probing and testing, tickling and stinging as the soft hairs of his body caught on the rubber. Sherlock had started collecting latex gloves (from delicate finger cots to past-the-elbow affairs for the opera or horse-fisting) once he learned that John loved to see his beautiful hands encased snugly, to touch without touching, a layer of medical distance between them as if John were just … a body.

John was getting hard even before Sherlock examined his neck and slowly circled his rubbery fingers around John’s mouth, gently opening his jaw. “Evidence of slight abrasion on the lips,” Sherlock told the camera. “Possible cause of death, asphyxiation by repeated insertion of a cylindrical object. Like this-” he said, his breath at last growing heavy as he straddled John’s shoulders and loosened his straining trouser button.

Today was a busy but productive day, also writing-wise: some editing for my original story, and continued NaNo-prep with one of the WIPs I want to finish; going through the written parts to see what I'll keep and what not, and writing up a new draft for what's missing.

The Gentleman Thief (Sherlock, Irene/Mary)

The armed security guard stood at alert rest, hands crossed behind in a strict military manner. No one at the museum wanted to take risks on a recurrence of the AGRA incident, not with the crown jewels of Narrativistan on loan for a limited engagement.

A lean dapper gentleman strode down the hall to the vault with the aura of one who belonged there. The guard alone knew that he didn’t - and looked askance at another guard who wasn’t quite right. It wouldn’t matter. The cameras would be off when they needed to be.

And such was Irene’s daring that she wriggled half out of her Westwood wool and showed sage-green skin-caressing silk, her male-manicured hands slithering into Mary’s uniform trousers right there in the vault. Mary thought she’d be the one who couldn’t keep her hands off Irene - smart tailoring of that suit seeming to change her whole body shape and give her natural air of dominance a masculine flavour. But it was Irene who seemed impatient. “The jewels are safe, pet,” she purred. “In the safest place. Well, safe from anyone but you.”

The cocky effect was dazzling as Irene pushed Mary against the steel wall and opened her shirt and waistcoat, pressing her breasts against Mary’s cheap uniform. “Suits suit you,” Mary murmured.

“Suits you to look butch.”

This is the predicted weather today in the neighborhood I lived in before my move:

96°, 17% humidity

Yup, that's the searingly hot October I remember. Those poor firemen in California! They're such heroes.

I'll be running tons of errands today. It's always so satisfying to get them done. :)

(ham wir zersägt)

What better way to spend a sunny afternoon in October than to plod down to the local sports pitch to watch a bunch of athletes running around and scoring goals in the blinding autumn light?
ABOUT A THOUSAND WAYS I would have said, until yesterday.


Just a normal afternoon down at some small-town pitch

Because yesterday I went with my olde Ring*Con pal Judith, her housemate and the housemate's boyfriend to watch the end-of-the-season games of the German Quidditch League.


I am not shitting you, this is real

We had timed our visit sort of randomly, but it turned out to be perfect because we arrived just before the finals. Since we were watching these matches in the shadow of the mighty Drachenfels, we decided to root for the most local team available, i.e. the Rheinos Bonn, which turned out to be a good choice, but tbh I was perfectly willing to cheer for everyone since Cologne wasn't involved anyway.


I love approximately everything about this

The first match (for third place), Looping Lux Leipzig vs. Hamburg Werewolves, was moving reasonably slow - not slow enough to be boring, but slow enough to give us a chance at figuring out the goings-on and the rules. (Judith had brought her copy of Quidditch through the Ages but strangely it glosses over the singularities of Lawn Quidditch, boo.) By a mixture of garbled book memories (made more complicated by the fact that half of us had read the books in English, and the other half in German), conjecture, questions to the assorted camp-followers and other experienced observers, and downloading the official rulebook of the German Quidditch Federation (yes, really), we managed (or thought we managed) to more or less know what was happening. At least until the snitch appeared and we got so distracted by watching what was going on there that we missed half a dozen goals that got scored in the meantime? Can't see everything at once, no wonder they have almost as many referees as they've got players.


The Rheinos are ready to rumble

The second match, Darmstadt Athenas vs. Rheinos Bonn battling it out for first place, was moving a lot faster; these really were a league of their own, and if anyone wants to question whether Lawn Quidditch is a real sport and can be taken at all serious, the answer after having seen this is a big, resounding Yes.

quidhonnef06

Bad quality but this is what the hunt for the Snitch looks like. (The Snitch is worn in a sock attached to the butt of the guy in gold, which has to be torn off, kind of like in flag football?). Here, he is "hiding" behind the Rheinos' Seeker, who has no interest whatsoever in catching the Snitch because her team is (as yet) too far behind.


Scenes of general pandemonium

Once the sun dropped behind the mountain, it got rather cooler than we were prepared for (though Judith had brought a cloak and I had my trusty Ravenclaw scarf to keep me warm, haha), but we heroically stayed through a very exciting catch-up race. When the Snitch entered the pitch, Darmstadt was leading 100:30 but the Rheinos managed to score a lot of goals while Darmstadt were distracted by trying to help their Seeker, and in the end, they forced a tie break by catching the Snitch (only 30 points in Muggle Quidditch) and going into overtime, where the Rheinos remained the superior team and deservedly won. There were a lot of Snitch catches (by either Seeker) that weren't counted for some reason that I, being a total newbie to Lawn Quidditch, cannot guess at, but the Rheinos deserved the victory simply for the way in which they managed to turn the tide and power through.

In conclusion, A++ way to spend a Sunday, would do it again.

And how did y'all spend this very fine October weekend?

My second entry at the Silmarillion40 compilation on the SWG posted yesterday, and I'm very excited to share it with you all! I made the pages during a long weekend of near constant drawing and painting, and I'm really happy with how they turned out. :D

Title: Ravens over Doriath
Summary: In the aftermath of the Second Kinslaying. (Some gore and horror themes).

Images under the cut )

There are a lot of wonderful stories and art over at the Silmarillion40 page. Check them out at the link below!

I think most of those interested are aware already, but here's some (mostly slightly older) news.

I'd been thinking for some time it might be good to post a list of "Quenya names", that is, not any names linguistically Quenya, of which there are quite a number in the Lord of the Rings and the Silmarillion, too, but the Quenya versions of characters' names drawn from HoME that fic writers use for Valinorean settings or to describe interactions among the Noldor.

Read more... )
So, triggered by a review by a floundering reader, I feverishly spent a couple of hours compiling a preliminary list, which is posted here. I'm hoping that, with other people's help, it can be eventually turned into something reliable and then posted to the References section on SWG, like Clotho's chronological compilation (which I use quite a lot).

Also, my bio of Dorlas has been posted in this month's SWG newsletter. Dorlas is that not-very-nice guy in the last section of the Tale of Turin and Tolkien put quite a lot of thought into developing his role, although this is more obvious from the "Children of Hurin" or "Unfinished Tales" than from the "Silmarillion": about the nature of courage, Edain politics, dramatic irony, and so on.

The SWG Ancestors challenge has concluded. There are ten stories, some of which I haven't managed to catch up with yet. 
I wrote a short piece that features Aragorn as well as some of the more usual suspects.
This is now also cross-posted to AO3:

The Witnesses (266 words) by Himring
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: The Silmarillion and other histories of Middle-Earth - J. R. R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings - J. R. R. Tolkien, TOLKIEN J. R. R. - Works & Related Fandoms
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Aragorn | Estel, Celeborn (Tolkien), Elrond Peredhel, Galadriel | Artanis, Glorfindel (Tolkien)
Additional Tags: Ancestors, Doriath, Gondolin, Nargothrond, Cross-cultural, Edain, Elves
Summary: Aragorn is told about his ancestors by those who saw them with their own eyes.

The next SWG challenge is called Behind the Scenes and is not so much about stuff going on immediately behind the scenes, but things going on somewhere else entirely but exactly at the same time as larger events.

And the Silmarillion40 has been continuing, now considerably past the half-way mark, with excellent contributions, both artwork and fic, although I still need to catch up with some of the fic.

The idea for chapter 5 finally came to me this morning. I'll be writing today, hooray!

Everything's going well here, and every day is very busy. I found a beautiful bright-red down parka at a second-hand shop, and my Sis-in-Law had one from her aunt that fits Shiremom nicely. I even have a snow shovel and rake now! I can't think of a single important thing we need except for some living room furniture. The house is so warm and cozy. We covered the beige carpeting with lots of random throw-rugs so Pip's little feet won't get the carpeting too dirty too soon. Every day we still do at least one large or small project. I still have one huge carton to unpack, but I hit the wall regarding unpacking and just can't deal with it yet. Nothing important in there, just miscellaneous odds 'n ends.

My brother and his wife will be traveling next week, so I get to feed nine ferals cats while they're gone. :)

I talked with my niece who lives in the Bay Area yesterday, and the fires are really awful up there. She said that ash is falling and the air is full of smoke. I remember the choking air quality during our bad fires in San Diego -- my eyes were irritated for weeks, and ash covered everything.

In puppy news, Pippin chased a mouse all over the yard this morning... and killed it! I was appalled, but she seemed quite satisfied and pleased. I know what she'll be dreaming about tonight. I had no idea she was such a carnivorous beastie. This move has been wonderful for her; she's getting more exercise, and smelling so many new and exciting things. Poor mousie. :(

Another day of tedious tasks, including waiting several hours for a handyman as our heating system had a worrisome problem last night.

Reveals happened!

I wrote Unwound Beneath the Skies (also on SWG) for Elleth. After a car accident, the government captures Maglor. Subira and Kate deal with the consequences. Maglor and Avarin OFC/OFC, rated Mature/Adult for medical experimentation. 5500 words.

I recieved:

Afraid of the Dark by Ancslove. On the run from both the Empire and his own inner demons, Luke Skywalker struggles with the aftermath of Bespin. Rated General, 1700 words.

It's a Luke and Chewie friendship fic, too! I love their conversation and the end result.

This looks like it's going to be fun

My new neighborhood seems to be exploding with Halloween spirit and decorations. I've been living in a gated apartment complex for so long, I nearly forgot what a rural, neighborhood Halloween looked like. I'd better pick up some bags of candy and be prepared! I put my camera right next to Pippin's leash this morning so I can take pictures on our 'walkies' (as soon as it stops raining); I did remember to snap this one yesterday:

I have tons of errands today, including a massive grocery run. I'm so relieved to finally know where all the shops are.

Speaking of Halloween, [personal profile] casey28 has posted 45 awesome Halloween icons:

ysilme: Detail of a pencil drawing of a bare tree (Branches)
[personal profile] ysilme

It's been choir rehearsal evening again, so I yet to have to start my proper writing evening. *refuses to look at clock* Some writing-related things already happened, though: decided about my NaNo project, created a book cover, and added the title and the cover in my NaNo profile, edited a short original fic (part of the project I also wrote for), and sorted some scrivener files around in preparation for NaNo, including adding some notes here and there. Scribbled some plot and character ideas about this during choir rehearsal. *coughs*
As usual, I'm wide awake after an evening of singing, I have tea, chocolate, music and a peacefully slumbering cat at my side, so the perfect setting for at least a few paragraphs.
