In Which consulting_detective Would Like You All To Know His Thoughts About Sherlock Holmes

Thanks for the mousies at wank_report for the beginning of this account; I filled in the rest.

Right. consulting_detective. Best damn fanartist in Sherlock Holmes fandom, makes you take one look and jump under the cold shower, master snarker, deadpan cynist, canon lover, sneers at everyone who's in his way, etcetcetc. If you'd like reminders of his previous antics, see here, here, and here. (And here, if you want to be scarred forever.)

So Sherlock Holmes fandom has been small and refined for the longest time. (Many would have it that it's the First Fandom Ever, and that Holmes/Watson is the first slash ship sailin' the seven seas, back when all fapping material fans had were 'zines and mail chains.) The original stories have been adapted left, right, and center — see Basil Rathbone and Bumblin' Nigel Bruce, or the scrumptious Jeremy Brett and his two Watsons. And then there's been the '09 movie by Guy Ritchie, starring Robert Downey Junior as a disheveled, scruffy Sherlock Holmes and Jude Law as gambling, gun-savvy John 'REALLY FUCKING HOT' Watson.

Fandom, as a result, exploded in many and various ways. Fanfic was written. Fanart was drawn. Discussions were had. There were challenges. And at least two kinkmemes.

There's been a bit of a lull recently, but after the confirmation of an upcoming sequel in winter 2011, and several set photos being let loose, fandom is sizzling once again.

(This background info was brought to you by extensive reading on holmesian_news.)

In the wake of these set pictures, sarah_s publishes this thread on holmeschat , linking back to this cast list in which Kelly Reilly, who plays Watson's fiancé, is recorded as Mary Morstan (as opposed to Mary Watson) and asks the community whether 1. this means they are not yet married, and 2. what it signifies for the Holmes-Watson relationship.

For a while the discussion is pretty civil, with several suggestions and polite disagreements (possible spoilers behind the links). And then consulting_detective comes in, and everything goes to hell in a hand basket.

consulting_detective is reputed for being an out-and-out canon supporter; his fanart is resolutely canon-based, with inspiration taken from the original Paget pictures and the Granada series starring Jeremy Brett. His dislike for the '09 movie is an open secret, but so far he'd been pretty quiet in his criticism outside out of his journal. Here, though, he really lets himself go.

Highlights include:

Downey would be not be able to play Holmes if he stuck a mop stick up his arse and drank his tea with one pinkie outstretched, and even then he would still be a sugar-hyperactive monkey with no proper sense of manners and the most ridiculous face in the history of christendom

The Ritchie movie is nothing more than American-bait with many explosions and basic appeals at the impressionable human psyche with supernatural stupidities

How To Butcher A Strong Female Character, or why they turned the most intelligent woman of the entire stories into a trousers-wearing, fighting-savvy, men-dominated femme fatale with red lipstick and no brains of her own


Funnily, though, consulting_detective refrains entirely from making scathing remarks about Law's Watson. People remark on this. consulting_detective keeps silent, and then admits that Law's Watson is interestingly-thought and better-played than his detective counterpart.

salts_theway suggests that someone has a crush.

andres_son makes unfashionable remarks about consulting_detective's sexuality.

consulting_detective replies with a damning deduction about salts_theway and andres_son relationship.

Shit gets personal from then on, and more people join in. Some mice laugh at everyone and then some. miss_toby takes consulting_detective's defense. storm_ford complains that this is why fandom can't have nice things. jim_fromit predicts it will all end on fandom_wank.

The mod of the comm, let_us_trade, eventually turns off anon commenting and administrates the following smackdown:

SHUT THE FUCK UP, YOU WANKERS. It's a very nice weekend here with the missus and the kids, and I'd rather not be dealing out bans on precious members of the comm, thanks very much. Get off the laptop, get yourselves a drink, and remember that we're all here because we love the same characters. DON'T COME BACK UNLESS YOU CAN BE CIVIL. Christ, what are you, kindergarden kids?

sarah_s, who was apparently out at work for the duration of the wank and had no idea that her thread had degenerated so rapidly, seconds this, and advises everyone to stop flooding her inbox and go read jumperfucker's latest epic 30K fic instead, because 'at least [they] can all agree that his fanfiction's the best out there.'

salts_theway replies that she has always thought jumperfucker's stuff to be vastly overrated. So far, nobody has really reacted to this, but considering that jumperfucker is one of the best-known BNFs of SH fandom, has written some 200K of fanfiction in both the ACD and the '09 premises, and has well over 3000 LJ friends, that should turn into another wankfest pretty rapidly.

ETAs to come!

Well. Uh. I think everybody and their grandmothers' cats have seen this clusterfuck. Thanks for the unexpected publicity, I guess? I know sarah_s was only trying to help and calm things down, for which I thank her, but god now I wish they'd shut up and be done with it.

Please. Stop. It's not worth dragging old battles in the mud like that; it's only going to make things worse, from now on. The original thread was actually pretty interesting, before everything began to get personal, and there were some discussions around the ACD canon / '09 movie resemblances and dissimilarities between some people not involved in the wank. These were good, I enjoyed reading that. I've already told my fill on those issues here and here, but I suspect SH2 is going to change perspective all over again.

(Yes, I'm still bitter about Rachel McAdams being off the cast. Shut up.)

That said, I think I've answered everyone who kindly commented on A Day Like Today — if I've left someone out by accident, I'm very sorry, and thanks very much. You guys know how much I appreciate your feedback.

Hello,

You have been paired with consulting_detective for your entry in the Sherlock Holmes Big Bang. Please discuss the details of your association with them.

If you drop out, please let us know at least two weeks before the final submission date so we can reassign them.

Best of luck,

The Sherlock Holmes Big Bang Mod

Hello. So, uh, we've been paired together in the shbigbang, and I was wondering — I know you got sent the first draft and all, but is there anything you want to know about the story? I mean, I can give you a general outline or maybe send you everything I've written so far, and then you can draw whichever passage you like.

Also, what type of art do you think you'll do? a big one? small ones? Just, well. Just let me know if you want to talk about it.

Cheers,

John

You have too detailed a writing style. A general outline would not help any. If there are specific scenes you want to see illustrated, write them and send them to me.

Your first draft was structured in five parts. That would mean one ink drawing for each, as well as a final piece for the epilogue.

Seriously? I — wow. That's a lot. But I guess since I'm writing a 50K+ story, you have to keep up? anyway, I'm sending you three separate passages, which I think are among the most important bits, I'd love to see them in your art — that's the meeting at Bart's, and there's the Chinese circus bit, and the discussion in the living-room at 221B in the last part but one. They're unbeta'ed, but I don't think they're too rough for you not to get a clear idea.

Cheers,

John

Glad we agree. This is the first draft of the St Bart's meeting, in pencil. I will have to ink it in later, but you may imagine the final result.

Wow. That's — well, that looks rather amazing. You know that's actually what people expect from this sort of challenge exchange, right?

By the way, I've been talking to sarah_s — that's my beta — about the Chinese mafia subplot, and she says it's fairly problematic, which it is, upon rereading. I'm going to rewrite that bit in. The circus passage should remain mostly unchanged, but if you plan on illustrating that one can you wait a bit and focus on another for now? I should be done with a rough draft of scene at the pool by the end of the week, if you want it.

I'd noticed. The draft is attached.

Speaking of the pool, I'm still a bit blurry on Moriarty and what his appearance should be in this 'verse; d'you think you could sketch me a quick outline of what you think he should look like? it's like, your art makes it clearer to determine my writing. Or something. All my canon fics are based off your art, anyway.

... I loved him best when he was asleep, when his face slackened, and his body's ever-brilliant intensity was assuaged with exhaustion; at intervals, on days that grew hot and close in the evenings, he would curl on the settee for long hours, a dark coiling comma that was all legs and dressing-gown, and his lazy eyes followed me 'round our sitting-room, sometimes flickering like a pale candle — sometimes touching at my neck, my wrists, as though he dreamt of softer things. Sometimes, they slipped shut, and I saw his chest rise and fall, gentler than I had imagined; it was the chest of a bird, fluffed and vulnerable, and the bones of the same, thin and delicate, moving under his skin.

I loved him best like this, although it was different — it was subdued, mellower than his chemical explosions, the supernovas he kept in his drawers, his maps and constellations. I had seen them once, glimpsed at long rolls of darker paper, and he had shrugged a laugh — quite literally; I had seen the rippling movement topple off his shoulders like a bathrobe — and said something about astronomy. Here, though, was no brilliance and no stellar thoughts, and for the first time in the day he looked absolutely human, clenching his pipe between his teeth, making soft sweeping declarations about humanity as he dozed.

I would not have given him up for all of London, the man with wet hair and open waistcoats who sat very late in the fireside armchair; by day, I treasured his exclamations and cutting, knowing eyes, the ever-quick composure he cherished so fitfully in all his dealings with other men and women. But when he was like this he was quite ruthlessly mine. In four years of rooming together I had seen every step and nook he had chanced in that direction, the stages he had very cautiously taken before he had deemed it acceptable to sprawl.

It has become public knowledge, now, that I made lists to puzzle him out — they were hundreds of scribbled thoughts, on thin little slips of paper; I tried to organize them, made timetables of his regular thoughts and reactions. He saw them all, for I was not attempting to hide them from him. I thought he was flattered, perhaps. He certainly laughed at them often.

My hands itched at times for something different from ink and pen, when I wished to retain the image I had of him just then — the graceful curve of my friend's body became something I could have drawn, the angle of his bent knee where it became sharp, the arch of his fingers as his arm near fell to the floor. I am not an artist, and when the words did not come as easily to me as they usually did, it was something of a regret to know that I would forget tonight, let it shift and loosen into the memory of a dozen such evenings, tinged with red fireplaces and long, pale hands."

Dear other member of this wonderful little comm I'm a member of.

Yes, I know I made a mistake that day. I am aware I committed the gravest crime. I am guilty of the worst sin ever. Oh, woe. What shall I do with myself now? tell you what, I'll cover my head with ashes and go sit in that corner for the rest of my life, bemoaning the day I ever dared contesting Thy Infinite Knowledge —


... oh, wait.

I admitted I haven't read the stories. Yes, I am writing fic off the movie and the movie alone. NO, THIS IS NOT A BIG FUCKING CRIME.

Fuck you and your stupid elitism and condescendence — see, I can use big words too! and I can do it without insulting you every other sentence! or implying you need to leave fandom forever! which is exactly what you did to me!

Fuck you.

 Oh, come off it. You were claiming that knowing anything about the original stories was useless for fic-writing in a canon-based comm. And claiming that anyone who didn't like the 09 movie was just a closeted homophobe, no matter however many rational arguments were put to you. Don't act as if you were blameless here.

Seriously, there's honest-to-god mistakes, and then there's good ol' LURK MOAR AND DON'T SAY STUPID SHIT syndrome.

Well, I'm glad to say I've made some headway with the first part, and I think I've got the Holmes/Watson relationship bit covered. Moriarty's characterization remains still in the shadows, as I'm sure it ought. Sneaky bastard.

I like your idea for the cover art — blue and black should be lovely.

Your Moriarty, such as you have written him in the draft for the pool scene you have sent me, is both spineless and farcical. Doubtless your betas have made this clear to you. I am glad you think of rewriting him, however.

This is a first draft of the cover art. I am not convinced Watson's entire body is necessary; I might amend his picture to a mere torso. I would appreciate your thinking on this.

Hah. Yes, they have. Thanks for the vote of confidence, mate.

It looks a bit. Lopsided? I like your Holmes — all these long pale limbs, it looks really good as a modern update. Bit different from your usual style though, isn't it? and the equilibrium is a bit off, but shading might do good about that, I reckon.

OKAY. So, I want you to know that I got to the actual comments and thought the story was continuing because the CODING FOR THIS IS SO PERFECT. And then I was ultra-confused. And then pleased! Because it meant I get to comment on this. So I read a story with a BNF concept in the Merlin fandom, but it was Arthur as BNF, Merlin as his beta, AND THIS IS SO COOL TOO, YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW. And consulting-detective would be such a troll, wouldn't he? XD

I thought the exact same thing. I was all, "wait, there's more! Look, new characters...? I don't remember this from the meme version...?"

SO FANTASTIC.

Yay I finally get to sit down and luxuriate in your awesomeness!

OMG so can we talk about how much I love the ficbits? Because I don't think we have before and I LOVE THE FICBITS. They make me want so much moooore and even though I know the links at the bottom of the excerpts won't click, I fruitlessly click them anyway every time. And then there's the first internet meeting and then John is rushing to Sherlock's defense all He's just misunderstood! and this is so good for me already.

And there are so many links to click because you are amazing have I mentioned that you're amazing yet?

PART 2 HERE I COME

Just found this. Skimmed through it. I definitely need a proper reread. Oh God. I can't close my eyes. Mind = blown. Freshly fallen in love. Again. God, this project. I'm so deep in love. God, I almost forgot.
GOD.
I can't.
Even.

*touches "post a new comment" tentatively*
so is this the "real" button now?
Seems like it.
Wow that was amazing, took me a while to figure it out and who was who. A bit to much meta for my tastes but the sherlock/John bits are fun.

*LOL* I didn't realize when the comments started and the fic ended to go to part ii. I was reading the comments think "who is ningen_demonai in sherlock?" Took me a second to figure it out. I also keep trying to click things that aren't real. Good job on making it so much like LJ that I get immersed and try to intereact. :D

I can just see right now how the interwebs are forever changing the face of fiction as we know it. This is SO gloriously clever and I love the idea of making a 'sort-of' pretend interactive fic. God is there even a name for this type of formatting?
AH! And it's somehow... in all it's kind-of-A/U but-not-really-and-oh-so-meta glory very much in character.
And yes, I thoroughly investigated ever clickable link and LJ profile name.
OKAY! onto part 2!

This is so cool. It took me probably longer than it should have to figure out how this works, but it is ridiculously awesome.

I'm rereading this, and I'm beginning to realize that I'm very grateful for the Hetalia: Axis Power ad for acting like the marker to tell me that the chapter's done. I would've been confused as hell like everyone else, otherwise. XD

The detail, attention, and creativity with which this was put together is amazing. Even if the fic weren't awesome (which it is), this would be incredibly impressive. Now I'm off to read all the other parts.
