So, without further ado, the fic I wrote in about half an hour tonight, unbetaed except by me.
( When The Daylight Comes I'll Have To Go )

As I write, sometimes (because I tend to skip around and write whatever scene comes to me at the time) I find that I have ideas from long ago that don't work anymore, or that i just don't want to use anymore. Usually, I just delete these scenes, maybe pasting a line of dialogue or a really good description into a different scene, and move on with my life. But sometimes, I feel like I don't want to lose what I wrote, even though it's just not going to fit into the narrative any longer. So, I present to you, a deleted scene from my Rapunzel fic. (Which I swear to GOD I am going to finish sometime in 2012.)
Even though they've probably existed for as long as Sherlock Holmes has, I'm pretty sure that every time the movie Sherlock Holmes plays, 100 slash fics spontaneously come into being. They don't get written, they just suddenly exist.
In other words, it was awesome, and you should all see it. I love it when men love each other (platonically, I'm sure) but won't say so, because they are men. Also, Holmes and Watson are 12. Also also, I have a real thing for big reveals, when someone explains the whole elaborate plot, as well as the person doing the revealing. Because it's SCIENCE!
One gripe though: I knew, as soon as Rachel McAdams walked on the screen, that she was going to need saving at some point in the movie, despite the fact that she's a badass, and a successful theif, and carries a knife. And I was right. Because women, no matter how cool, always need saving eventually. Blech.
Finally, Janeea and I kept drawing parallels between this movie and Firefly. Right down to the music. This is not a bad thing.
Conclusion: I have the hots for Sherlock Holmes. Always have. Right back to my childhood, with Basil, the Great Mouse Detective. (Who isn't actually Sherlock Holmes, but is close enough). But I haven't really ever read one of his stories. I should get on that.
Happy Leap Day!!!
I dunno how long I've had this lj, but I don't think I've ever posted that before. Hm.
In other news, Abby's vow of silence lasted only until about 3:30 the other day, because her mother called. But it did inspire me to write something, which I will be typing up and posting probably today. Would anyone like to beta it before I do? It's Harry Potter, but shockingly not slash. (Or romance of any kind, for that matter. Yay genfic!) Just let me know if you're up for it.
Have a nice extra day!
1. I concluded tonight that I need to stop watching the Disney Channel, because it's making me lose all respect for Zac Efron. Every time I see his "music video" a little piece of my love for him dies.
2. I don't know if anyone watched Criminal Minds tonight (Or, as I'm pretty sure it was a re-run, watched it the first time it was on) but it was SO GOOD. I only remember to watch it occasionally, but it's always fantastic. The guy who played Ranch Burgess in Heart of Gold was in it, and just...GAH.
Reid: When does it end?
Jack: Tomorrow. *shoots the guy who kidnapped his daughter and killed her friend*
And the daugher going "Kill him Daddy. He killed Katie. Kill him." That was horrible and yet awesome at the same time.
3. After watching Bizarre Foods, I've decided that I could never eat something that was killed in front of me. Not even if it was a snake. I don't want to have seen the thing that I'm about to be consuming moving around beforehand.
Bonus: I was looking up what kind of owl Draco has for a fic of mine that I'm editing, and I saw this on his profile page on the Lexicon and laughed: Draco's interests: Quidditch, the Dark Arts, himself.

"I didn't. You had at least half."
