I’m Not Excited For BBC Sherlock’s Third Season (and here’s why)

I'm not excited for season 3 of BBC Sherlock - and here's why

original image via official BBC site

If you are a longtime reader of this blog, this headline may shock you just a little. We are very heavy on the BBC Sherlock content around here. All three of us, plus the interns, love Sherlock very much. And I suppose the headline is a little bit of an exaggeration. We’re excited to see season 3. We’re excited to see what creative torture techniques Mofftiss have come up with in the years away from 221B. But, personally, I’m very apprehensive about how the 3rd season is going to go, based on what little we’ve seen of it and previous experiences. I understand not everyone is going to agree with me on this, but bear with me – I just really, really want to say this for the record. I’m not excited for BBC Sherlock’s third season. In fact, I’m a bit terrified of it. And here’s why…

9 Fictional Jobs We’d Like to Have (that would really suck)

9 fictional jobs we'd like to have that would really suck

So, it’s fall, and that means for some of you it’s time to decide which college you’re going to and what your major is going to be and all this other stuff about what you’re going to do with your life for the rest of eternity. Personally, when I was that age, I wanted to be a rock star, or a time-space witch. Here’s a roundup of our favorite (more or less fictional) career choices from literature, television and film; we’ll break it down for you why each job is fantastic, and why you probably would want to avoid it anyway. Read on for our picks!

Minor Potter Characters Who Deserve Their Own Spinoffs

Minor Potter Characters Who Deserve their Own Spinoffs

With the announcement of the upcoming Fantastic Beasts film yesterday, speculation began to run rampant. Who will play Newt? Will we get to see any of our favorite Potter characters in their youth? How much will we get to learn about the American Wizarding world?

Rather than jump on the Newt fan-casting bandwagon (though if you’re interested to know, my current top two picks are Skandar Keynes and Rollo Weeks), we decided to look at the many other Potterverse characters worthy of their own spinoffs. Continue reading

Freak Geek’s Fanfiction Recs (10/10 would read again)

111

So, earlier today, I tweeted a link to a fic that had just been posted, written by an author I am quite fond of reading, and… you guys liked it. Okay. Well… since I’ve been having a bit of a creative block lately as to what I should post this week, I thought, why not put together a list of my all-time favorite fanfictions? The short ones, the long ones, the epic sagas that last eternity? True, I’m not in every fandom. My tastes are my own and might not jive with what you guys like. However… come on. Dude. It’s literature. Won’t hurt.

I am aware that nearly all some a few a couple of these have adult content (such as violence, drug use, sexual content, etc) that may be not safe for work, not safe for school, not safe for church and possibly not safe for life. I will try to include any possible red flags in the description of the fics quite clearly, and without spoiling the plot of the story for you. However, I am fallible and merely human; since nearly all of these are hosted over on AO3, I recommend you read the story tags very carefully before you jump into the story.

Okay? Okay. Let’s read some fanfiction, bro.

Nerdy Fashion: Harry Potter House Pride Edition

Nerdy Fashion: Harry Potter House Pride Edition

For this edition of Nerdy Fashion I decided to put my closet to the test. Be warned that this post should probably come with the tagline, Cecelia starts out exploring her closet but ends up learning things about herself. I’ve always wanted to try to dress entirely in house colors for a week, and Pottermore’s House Pride week gave me an excuse. It ended up showing me just how much of each house was in me and what advice I should start taking from each so I could become a more balanced person.

Hogwarts House Pride Week – Our Favorite DIY Projects from the Magical World of Harry Potter

Hogwarts House Pride Week

Oh, will you look at that. September 1st has come and gone, and all those happy young wizardlings are off at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. However, being grownup witches that we are, we don’t get to go back to Hogwarts; we don’t have any kids either, so we can’t exactly see them off at Platform 9¾ either. This leaves us with very little to do except wallow in post-Potter depression. But, get this – the best cure for post-Potter depression (and adulthood) is keeping the magic alive, and you know what the best way of keeping the magic alive is? CRAFTING. Yup, that’s right folks – we are going to craft our little hearts out, and we’re going to have so much fun with it that those ickle firsties are going to wish they weren’t stuck at Hogwarts being sorted and learning wizardry… well, okay, maybe not that much fun, but Merlin’s beard, we’re going to try! Read on for some of our favorite Harry Potter craft ideas and recipes.
