Me, Nick and I are gonna be there with bells on! He specifically requested the day off, and I've always got Thursdays off and work evenings, so midnight's no big thing at all for me (hence why you only ever see me on in the middle of the night).
I was gonna say "We'll have to be sure not to spoil it for you," but why would we be discussing it in this thread?
Oh yeah, because it's basically the fandom side of Tumblr in Gaia Thread form. I love you guys. heart
Finished Wisteria Lodge. Wh... Was that really necessary to drag it through three chapters? I very much enjoyed (***SPOILERS! If you've not read this adventure, DO NOT READ THIS, IT'LL SPOIL YOU FROM THE FIRST!!***) the twisting of initial perceptions to where Garcia, initially perceived as a villain, turned out to be a slain hero, but... three THREE (3) CHAPTERS? It was complicated, yes, but... But... Well, props to the police force for actually being competent for once, I suppose. Harumph! (***END SPOILERS. THE REST OF THIS POST IS SAFE TO READ!***)
Anyway, I've got 15 minutes left before I go home. I do NOT need to spend $0.99 to get the Casebook on Kindle when I've got it in physical form at home to read for free. No. NO, Cynthia! Do NOT spend a dollar on this! Crack a ******** book for once! You've got a smartphone, you can occupy yourself for a quarter of a ******** hour! You've got battery enough for Temple Run, go do that! Gosh!
Ohhhh jesus I fear I may need to own that. It took a few pages to sell me, but once I got used to the idea that it's a caricature more than anything, I began to fall in love. It's delightfully awful, isn't it? Hideous in the most beautiful way. Oh, it's perfect, I love it! Onto the Wishlist with you, darling! I will own that someday. Thank you, Moneneko, for sharing that lovely thing. heart
He told me about it while he was taking a bathroom break or something and one of the things he said was "I don't like this Watson! This guy has a limp and all that crap. Watson's more badass than that." Told him that it goes away near the end because it was psychosmatic.
So I took my book to work today to read if it was slow (and it was), and... Boy, did I pick a doozy. The Adventure of the Cardboard Box. For those of you who've read it, you know. That was... Well. Some of the stories have rather shaken me in terms of the crimes committed, but crimes of passion always get me. Wow. It was all rather vulgar from the start, (***SPOILERS? ODDITY YOU'RE READING THROUGH, I DON'T KNOW IF ANYBODY ELSE IS IN PROGRESS OR IF THE REST OF YOU ARE EITHER DONE READING OR JUST AREN'T GOING TO?***) but just the thought of a marriage going from peaches and pie to murdering your wife and her beau and mailing their ears to her sister... Dhjdksa heebie jeebies! (***END SPOILERS***)
And now I'm on to The Adventure Of The Red Circle! As soon as I got into it I realized that Stygtrygger wrote a really lovely fic based on this one. I'm interested to see how the original plays out!
Oh geez guys
Can we just
Can we just talk about The Dying Detective
Holmes you are a d**k OH MAN
You gotta ********' APOLOGIZE when you ill-use your Watson like that! You said some hurtful s**t, dude! Geez!
