I'm over escaping from family and old high school classmates (god help me) on Facebook, and the complete tweenie insanity that is Tumblr, despite all the pretty pics of Johnlock and the actors thereof. And porn. Ahem.

Because, dude. I'm too goddamn old for Tumblr, and people keep finding me on Facebook despite that my name is altered.

Kill the sideburns, this really is THoU!Merry in my head, or as close as I can get. Remember THoU!Merry is my Merry-Sue, and the picture gets clearer. The boy has VERY Tookish eyes.

I will, however, include Dominic!Merry for the purists, because also pretty fantastic, this:

I've been hammered by various viruses, illnesses, and general decrepitude for the better part of 8 months now and I'm utterly physically exhausted. Mentally I've been going in Warp Nine, and anyone paying any attention knows I've been devoured by BBC's "Sherlock." I've also seen STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS, which hasn't eaten my brain in the same way but OMFG IT WAS TOTALLY AWESOME and if I say much more than that a couple friends who haven't seen it will force-choke me and I'm just not up for that.

How are YOU?

On Tumblr, the #letsdrawsherlock tag has some of the most amazing transformative art I've ever seen. And I've been doing this fandom thang for like 40 years. Go lookit.

I couldn't go back to just Daisy_Gamgee because that was "taken"--by me. In 2002. WTF, LJ?

We'll just go with the cross-Sherlock "The Real" concept then, shall we?

Anyway. Hi, everyone! What are you up to today? I'm actually home sick. Because I'm actually sick physically, as opposed to the frequent "mental health days" of the previous job, in which I was just sick of my frakkin' job. Now I actually really enjoy my job, so this is, weirdly enough, kind of bumming me out. I Have Things To Do Dammit.

I've decided that all my fanfic from time immemorial (like, backdated stuff also) has been, is, and will be, under the name Daisy Gamgee, regardless of the fandom.

Should I change this LJ back or what? Whatcha think?

And then *BOOM*.

Holy crap. I think I just made a Massively Huge Life Decision. I’m kinda shaken up. Good thing “Sherlock” is on PBS tonight; I need the comfort of someone else’s crazy for a little while.

Subject: The Johnlock ship is NOT sinking. REPEAT: NOT. Sinking.
Security: Public
Mood:amusedamused

Okay, kids—and I can say that at my age (I’m 51, thanks for asking, and if that’s your grandmother’s age, shut up)—we have all been SPOILED ROTTEN by the Sherlock fandom and Johnlock, in that the actors know about it and kinda dig it, the producers and writers know about it and kinda dig it, and they all play with it and we kinda dig that. That’s way beyond cool and we have some great actors, writers, and showrunners to thank for that (despite the occasional fist-shaking “MOFFAAAAAT!” moments).

However. I started in Star Trek fandom in 1975, before what’s considered the real first ship ever began, and when that particular fanzine hit mailboxes in 1976 (no internet—ask your grandmo….wait, no, never mind), THE FANDOM EXPLODED. There is absolutely NO WAY that Kirk/Spock will ever ever be canon, EVER ZERO NONE.

Didn’t sink the ship.

George Lucas sent out attorney-written Cease & Desist notices in 1981 to Star Wars fanzine publishers for daring to ship anyone with anyone or anything and hint that there might be sex involved. Hell, I got one of the C&Ds and I wish I’d kept it. There were lots of lawyers involved. THE FANDOM EXPLODED. There is absolutely NO WAY that any of those ships (except Han/Leia, borrrrrinnng..) will ever ever be canon, EVER ZERO NONE

Didn’t sink the ships.

Blake’s 7 fandom had a helluva trip in the 80s, too—from Wikipedia:

As Langley describes: “In 1988-89, the Blake’s 7 fandom was seriously damaged when some of the actors in the show, who had become friends with a good number of the fans, were shown samples of slash stories. Taking offense to the portrayal of their characters as homosexual, and seeing this type of writing as a betrayal of their friendship with the fans, the actors sought to ban the slash authors they knew from fandom and to rid the fandom of slash. As with all of the other forms of “official” sanctions against slash, the furor eventually eased, and slash fiction continued to be written (Langley, June 17th, 1999).[6] THE FANDOM EXPLODED. There is absolutely NO WAY that any of those ships will ever ever be canon, EVER ZERO NONE

Didn’t sink the ships.

This crazy wonderful Johnlock ship is NOT sinking—if anything, it’s ramping UP. Think about it—what truly great grand romance doesn’t have one huge mofo of a cockblock in it? My apologies to Amanda Abbington and Mary Morstan, both of whom are delightful, but seriously:

It’s going to be okay. Believe in Sherlock, and believe in John, and believe in Johnlock, catch your breath, and imagine the angst!fic possibilities.

The ship is not sinking—it’s gaining speed. FULL STEAM AHEAD.

I'm currently ensconced in/utterly obsessed by BBC's "Sherlock," and here is where I post for that fandom: WS Gillette's works on An Archive of Our Own (AO3). My second story's gone over 2000 hits, so I'm feeling rather chuffed. Thanks, Johnlockian Crusaders!
