Game of Shadows next Sunday!

I've volunteered to host Game of Shadows for the 8th, but I wanted to make sure of the start time, and bat my eyelashes in the hopes of getting some help with the banner, etc.. My mad computer skillz consist mostly of being able to type and add links, you see. Photoshop is definitely not my friend.

In any case, I'm currently planning on starting the film at 3:00 Boston time, (ooh, a countdown clock) and I was wondering if people would like it to be an hour earlier or later. Please let me know in the comments.

This should be fun!

Watchalong- A Study in Pink

Welcome Everyone! It's that time again:
Watchalong- A Study in Pink


This post is going up a little earlier than normal due to my schedule (long story) but that just means we've got longer to have fun, right? Come in and introduce yourselves (even if you check in, nip out, and come back later. We need catering numbers ;) )

So when we watched The Reichenbach Fall a few weeks ago, we were discussing our reunion fantasies. I was wondering, what are your favourite headcanon prequel fantasies? Anything you're totally in love with and want to share? Please do, I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts on all the backstory brought to A Study in Pink. It can be totally serious, or the stuff of crackfic, either thoughts are most welcome :) We'll revisit at the end of the watchalong.

I come bearing tea:


And some other awesome things under the cut, including the most ideal sofa for us all to hang out on while watching...

As always, sparkletext is here

And our countdown is HERE!

In conclusion (to this post, I mean ;) ) I bear a gift for everyone waiting for the watchalong to start: TV Tropes' Sherlock Pages.. More painstaking nitpickery of this show than any person could possibly ask for ;) Massive spoilers unless you've seen both series 1 and 2.

Have fun!

EDIT: And thank you to the mod team for fixing my epic formatting fail...

Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Missing Sunday Watchalong

Tomorrow afternoon I'm going to be in a pub cheering on European football players for the Euro Cup, so no watchalong tomorrow.

And the last two Sunday Watchalongs have been bust, so I'm pretty bummed about them.

To shake things up a bit for Sundays, I thought I'd adopt out some watchalongs to new hosts. Maybe we need something new!

Want to Host a Watchalong?
Sundays @ 12pm LA / 3pm New York / 8pm London
June 24 - jussacgirl
July 8 - rabidsamfan
July 22 - morelindo

Host whatever you like, as long as it's Sherlockian. Put up polls or just decide.
Advertise as you like.
On Watchalong day, post 1 hour or so before start time.
Have epic amounts of fun!

Comment style (check all that apply)

I prefer the new default comment style.
I strongly prefer the new default comment style.
I dislike the new default comment style.
I prefer the old default comment style.
I strongly prefer the old default comment style.
I dislike the old default comment style.
I'd prefer a custom layout comment style (depending on the layout).

Layout (check all that apply)

I like the current layout and don't want it changed at all.
I like the curent layout but I also wouldn't mind a change.
I would prefer a layout change. (If there are problems with the layout, please comment so I can fix or avoid having the same problem in future layouts.)
If the layout changes, I want it to be cracktastic.
If the layout changes, I want it to be fun / not too cracky or too serious.
If the layout changes, I want it to be intense and serious.
If the layout changes, I want it to be sleek and stylish.
If the layout changes, I want it to be simple / basic.
If the layout changes, I want it to use the same images / style as the current one.
If the layout changes, I want it compatible with custom comment styles -- unintrusive, easy to load.

  • The new default comment style is what's currently in use in this community. It doesn't reload the page after you comment and it doesn't have subject lines.
  • The old default comment style has subject lines and reloads the page after you comment. The BBC Sherlock fic meme (link goes to the love post; visually SFW, I don't know about content) uses the old style.
  • Custom layout comment styles match the rest of the layout. They have subjects and reload after commenting, like the old style. The layout would aim to be very readable, easy to use, and easy to load. 221b-slash and CumberbatchFans and FreemanFans are examples of custom layout comments.
  • If we vote to change the comment style, then the layout will need to be changed because this layout doesn't support the old style.
