A year ago today, I published the first chapter of what would become my longest, most popular fic. It all started with a commission from nocturnias to continue a dark Molly one shot she’d written. When I took the commission, I had no idea where I’d go with it or how it would turn out. I also didn’t think anyone would ever read it, since dark Molly isn’t everyone’s cup of tea.
But here we are, and I credit this story with the explosion in the number of people who read my other work, and for solidifying my confidence in my storytelling.
There is a short follow up in the works. I wanted to post it today, but my laptop issues have delayed progress. I store everything on Dropbox so accessing it isn’t a problem, I just have to get comfortable with writing at the desktop computer.
If I have to replace my laptop, it has to be before Mary Poppins rehearsals start in a month, so I may open commissions again to help with that.
Anyway, I want to thank everyone who read and/or recced That Dear Perfection. I don’t think I’d have come as far as I have if it hadn’t been received so well.
This story got me into the Sherlolly fandom and fanfic. It was also the catalyst to get my friends into Sherlock (consequently Sherlolly) as well. So thank you!!!
I have a very urgent question. Is Benedict on set filming Black Mass this weekend in Boston? What part of Cambridge is it being filmed in because I live close enough and...I HAVE AN URGENT NEED to meet this man
I have absolutely no idea. I know he’s filming but I haven’t really been keeping up with the locales I’m afraid. I’m sure someone will respond with details for you. If you are going just remember that Sherlock filming is a different beast & Hollywood security probably won’t be as fluffy or appreciate crowds.
Hi Naomi! I was wondering if you knew any details of Benedict's Black Mass filming schedule. I was hoping to get a glimpse of him in Boston. Any information is appreciated.
I’m afraid I don’t sorry. That sort of info isn’t generally publicly available although sometimes you can find out in advance if they have to advertise road closures etc. I know he’s there and has started filming but that’s it
Omg that was a weird spelling mistake… I meant thank you for posting this…
Thanks for the support! I usually just ignore the hate, but the original poster in question is (according to her blog) a 30-something professional who really should know better and needs to grow up. We just wanna enjoy the sherlolly tag without fear!
I told her to go to lol tag if she wants to make fun of Sherlolly so much. The concept of personal opinions is great and all but the concept of being trite is not.
the best post ever written on this site was that chick who said “benedict cumberbatch looks like what the x files theme sounds like” that changed my entire life forever and if i wasn’t on mobile i’d find and reblog it 100000 times in a row
Thank you! It says blog not found though when I click on it? :/
Weird. Idk why it’s doing that.
Here’s her post: “So we went out for the evening to see my dad’s choir perform James McCarthy’s new piece Codebreaker about the life and death of Alan Turing and it was completely and utterly amazing and you should definitely check it out, but what was even more amazing was our celebrity run-in of the night. So we went to eat at the barbican restaurant and I heard one of the waitresses saying ‘I’ve just seen him! The guy who plays Sherlock’ and I was like OMG and then about 5 minutes later I 100% saw Benedict Cumberbatch walk through the restaurant and he sat outside with Louise Brealey (Molly from Sherlock) the whole time and I was like ahhh!!! But we thought he’d probably be going to the barbican theatre or something but then who’d have thought it we go in and find our seats and 10 minutes later him and Louise and their friend sat down in the row behind us!!!!!! I was like 2m away from him!!!!!! And he gave the choir a standing ovation and everything he seemed so lovely what a guy”
