‘Abroad? You’re in Dublin.’ Sherlock lost his train of thought somewhat as John started to unbutton the jeans he had on. ‘It’s hardly abroad.’

Sherlock lifted his eyebrows as John marched over to his laptop and bent down over it. Only the bottom of his mouth and his muscular arms and chest were visible as he typed in his usual excruciatingly slow manner, his tongue flicking out to wet his lips. Sherlock’s toes curled.

You wanted Skype porn, I’ll give you Skype porn.

It’s all Livia’s fault anyway. :P

As with all my PWPs, D/s themes.

Enjoy! <3

Ok, so, I have some of the most amazing friends ever, right? This year, they got together behind my back and arranged the Twelve Days of Moony, surprising me with a gift a day for the duration of Christmas. It was incredibly sweet, and I can’t begin to express how touched I was by the gesture. I thought I’d make a cover for each of the fics written, to show my appreciation. For the non-fic gifts (graphics, art, podfics), I’ll likely be writing fics in return at a later date <3

Fandom Lives in Our Hearts
  • Ivy:I'm sort of tempted to point out to the wankery folks that tumblr is actually NOT the only location of fandom
  • Ivy:it was such a surprise to me to discover that LJ is not longer the primary home of fandom

Sherlock-the-Pooh Illustrations

I’ve done some little illustrations for thisprettywren's amazing Sherlock-the-Pooh fic. Seriously, it's absolutely lovely. 

Chapter One In Which We Are Introduced to Sherlock-the-Pooh and Some Bees and the Stories Begin…  On AO3 On LJ

Chapter Two In Which Andersore Loses a Tail and Sherlock Finds One… OnAO3 On LJ

Also, I buggered up the original post. Sorry :\

Why I love fandom

This is my pre-outline for what will hopefully be the next thing I write. It’s just a sort of free-associated portrait of a story without any real structure or plot. I just felt like I had to write some ideas down that had been rattling around in there since Scandal, and after watching Reichenbach was as good a time as any.

I wrote out about 1500 words or so, and there are so many generous and wonderful people in fandom who are willing to look at something like that, a PRE-outline for a fic, that it’s already all marked up and commented upon. There’s just nowhere else in the world where an amateur like me gets to play with fiction and get that kind of collaborative feedback. Writing is usually such a lonely experience. It’s stuff like this that makes writers out of us.

Out of me, anyway.

I love you, fandom.

jomk asked:

16 and 28, if you please. :)

Oooooh good ones!!

16. If you only could write one pairing for the rest of your life, which pairing would it be?

At this point I think I’d have to say Johnlock. It’s the only pairing that I’ve written, but you could go 1000 ways with those characters, so I think the permutations could keep it perpetually interesting!

28. Share three of your favorite fic writers and why you like them so much.

Only 3? I might have to do more…

1. lady_t_220: I am such a complete fangirl of ladyt220. I love, love, love her writing. I like to think of her as the queen of sexy writing. She was one of the first kink writers I came across in the fandom, and I immediately read everything she wrote. She writes dark fic, sexy fic, incredibly gentle fic. Her writing is beautiful, sexy, dark, lush and so good!  She now writes mainly for Cabin Pressure, and wow, it’s so lovely. I’m in love with her incarnation of submissive Martin Crieff. My current faves are Soft Soap a Martin Crieff/OFC which is stunning and her latest A Guiding Hand, a deliciously smutty threesome with Martin, Herc, and Douglas. I always say that when I grow up, I’d like to write sex as well as ladyt220. Seriously, I aspire to her  level of sexy writing… (Her Sherlock work can be found here…)

2. thisprettywren: Brilliant and beautiful prose, incredible world building, and kink writing that breaks my heart sometimes. What’s not to love about her work.  She was another of my early LJ fandom finds. I think the first fic of hers that I read was Transport  and to this day it is one of my all time favorite fics. When I read it the first time it completely blew my mind. I didn’t know that people wrote stories like this. This internal, thoughtful, kinky, noodley stories. (noodley is my word for digging into the details.) It hit so many of my buttons that I read it multiple times and then inhaled her other works. Performance Art got into my head and kind of broke my heart, and I loved it for that. (I’m only brushing the surface of thisprettywren's writing brilliance… kink is only one small part of her work)

3. pennypaperbrain This one isn’t going to be a surprise. I’m a huge penny fangirl. Her prose is stunning, her stories are raw, sexy, thinky and true. When I want solid, thoughtful, deep and real BDSM, I read Penny. She gets into the headspace of Sherlock and I get it. I understand him. Four Corners of the Western World is always on my rec lists. It’s really really stunning.  I’m also a fan of Penny’s intense writing process. Her multiple rewrites, dissecting the prose, working the story over and over until it’s just right. I always read her posts about writing and think, yep… I totally get it. :-)

4. fireofangels: She is not for the faint of heart and I love her for it. She writes some deep down dark and scary stuff of nightmares kind of fic. Often I finish a story quite disturbed, and feeling like I’ve been punched in the stomach, but I love that it effects me on such a visceral level. She takes a nightmare situation and writes is so realistically and so internally that I can’t help but be dragged along for the emotional ride of it all. I think I’ve read all 148 of her stories…

If  you take a look, please read ALL of the tags. Most of her work is horribly triggery and very disturbing. But she has some (non!dark) work as well that’s actually quite sweet… 

(Okay I typed this like a crazy person, please don’t mind the stream of consciousness ramblings)

milarca asked:

Oh, I kind of want to be greedy and ask you a bunch ^^;; I'd love for your answers to 1, 10, 12, and 15 =))

Hello milarca! Thank you for your questions!

10. Which fic has been the easiest to write?

Hands down A Study in Frustration. It was my very first fic, kind of a mindless oneshot I came up with the idea after a nap and wrote the entire thing in a day. No thought, just how many of my personaly kinks can I throw in a story. I found a beta who set me straight with some mistakes and assumptions I had, explained to me the concept of tagging for dubcon and out it went. So easy! Everything after has been blood from a stone… ;-)

12. Is there an episode above all others that inspires you just a little bit more?

Definitely Reichebach. That’s the episode that launched a thousand fics and the one that made me seek out Sherlock fandom (after much post Bart’s fall weeping).

15. If you could choose one of your fics to be filmed, which would you choose?

Okay, I kind of got lost in my head there for a moment… :-) Definitely Switch. Purely for the visuals of first time sub!Sherlock and boots… (… and I got lost in my head again…) :-)

There are so many fics that I’d looooove to see movies of: emmagrant01's A Cure for Boredom, pennypaperbrain's Four Corners (filmed by Sam Mendes), splix's Method Act, wearitcounts' Permutations series, thisprettywren's Spectrum series (filmed by Christopher Nolan)… My god so many good movies! Still trying to figure out which directors to match them with…

Sometimes Sherlock likes a game of some sort when he comes upstairs, and sometimes he likes to sit quietly in front of the fire and listen to a story. This evening—

“What about a story?” said Sherlock.

Rec: Prepare to be utterly and completely charmed by Sherlock-the-Pooh, Johnlet, Mycroft Robin, Andersore, and their friends. Along with delightful original illustrations by livia_carica. The whimsical adaptation of the original children’s story is actually framed by a quite serious post-Pool stock-taking that gives us little flashes of insight into Sherlock’s childhood and his friendship with John. Strictly gen.
