Thanks for Making that Scene Canon!  
A post by guardian_chaos alerted me to the two clips now available for the 2nd series of Sherlock! You can view them HERE.

I sort of made a squeeing noise when Lestrade instructed the other officer through how to handle Sherlock. Particularly the "and as far as possible, try not to punch him." Mainly because Lestrade having to do this with various other officers has been my personal canon so seeing it on screen made me flail all over the place.

I also loved this exchange:
John: Do you just carry on talking when I'm away?
Sherlock: I don't know. How often are you away?

TEE!!

Can't wait to ring in the new year with the 2nd series!

I meant just to ask you if the clips themselves were spoilery but then when I clicked to comment my eyes went naturally to what you said and then I thought, "Oh, heck!" and clicked the link and

SQUEE! Must rewatch—missed a couple bits looking around for Brilliant Husband. I'll show him. ("I meant for me." "All right, but there's a mute button, and I will use it." JOHN SQUEE!)

Ah, I guess I should have said if the clips were spoilery or not. My general guess is that they kind of aren't in terms of the greater plots.

But anyway:

("I meant for me." "All right, but there's a mute button, and I will use it." JOHN SQUEE!)

I bet John sometimes wishes Sherlock really did come with a built in mute button.

Eee! It's going to be amaaaaazing. First a brilliant new movie, and now a brilliant new series of Sherlock? It goes without saying that I'm greatly pleased about these events.

Hurray for having fanon made canon, yes? At least in this instance, most definitely. :D

I've been meaning to ask, how was the sequel?

'Scrib, I cannot squee loud enough to express the sheer depth of the FEELINGS I have for the sequel. I loved it! There was this one scene in which (and no worries, I won't spoil you in any way because I'm going to be so vague as to be practically incomprehensible) Watson had to hold Sherlock's foot. It was art. Beautiful, heartstring-pulling art. I can't believe I'm the only one thinking about that scene, honestly. Nobody is speaking of it anywhere!

I'm going to have to discuss it with you after you've seen the movie yourself. *G*

Which you should! It's a fun film, laughs a plenty and even some hurt/comfort swept into the mix to keep it engaging. And the soundtrack is wicked cool. :)

Actually plotwise I sort of know what happens in this movie. Someone told me and I didn't really care. I heard a couple of things which made me make frowny faces at Guy Richie but then I also heard things that made me laugh uncontrollably so hopefully it'll even itself out.
Astoundingly fond of avocados and rainy weather.: ST_FriendlyWordguardian_chaos on December 20th, 2011 04:45 am (UTC)
Plot's secondary to character development to me, so honestly, I didn't pay anywhere near as much attention to the plot as I did to the delightful plays of subtle tells that kept running all over Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law's faces. I'd say the story is ultimately about them, not the plot, and there was a lot of interesting detail that went into that. But...but Stephen Fry as Mycroft! AAAAHHH, I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW I'D SEE HIM IN THE MOVIE UNTIL I DID, AND THEN I WAS SO HAPPY.

I liked the first Sherlock Holmes film, but I wasn't inspired to seek fanfiction about it. This time around, I am inspired to seek fanfiction about it. Take from that what you will! ^_^

I think I was more annoyed by one particular character death. But other than that, the movie sounds rolicking. And obviously the inclusion of Stephen Fry just makes it that much more incredible.
Astoundingly fond of avocados and rainy weather.: BL_FlamingoInCrowdguardian_chaos on December 20th, 2011 04:59 am (UTC)
As there were a lot of explosions in the movie, I'm not going to pretend I know precisely which death you're talking about, but I can understand how news of certain character deaths can be awful. I suppose what I can say to that is that I went into the movie with absolutely no spoilers backing me up, and that, all things considered, I was happy at the end of the film with how the characters had been handled.

And now I'm nervous that you'll see this movie and think, "What on earth is g_c seeing in this wretched thing?" *shuffles self-consciously about*

And obviously the inclusion of Stephen Fry just makes it that much more incredible.

He was certainly memorable! And I got to see the trailer for Men In Black III on the big screen, which was all kinds of thrilling. *vbg*

It's the death early on that was supposedly due to some rare form of pneumonia or what not. Once I actually see the movie I'll give my full two cents on it but from just hearing it the death of this particular character just seemed pointless. But again, I'll wait to see how it unfolds.

I must ask: how were Moriarty and Moran? I'm SUPER curious how the actors fared in portraying the literal dark antitheses of Holmes and Watson.
Astoundingly fond of avocados and rainy weather.: DW_Cheersguardian_chaos on December 20th, 2011 05:11 am (UTC)
I believe I read that it had roots in canon somehow. I think Watson wrote about the particular character in past tense in one of the books or something of that nature. If it's the scene you are talking about, I...

Actually, I'm getting into spoiler territory. I will talk about it later. :)

I liked Moriarty. I felt like the actor possessed the strength and capability to apply more omph to the character, but I also think that sense might have been intentional. Sort of like Moriarty was this incredibly enormous character who was playing himself as smaller than he really is in order to deceive others. As for Moran, I was somewhat indifferent to him simply due to him being swallowed up by the other characters, but he served his purpose with efficiency.
formerly lifeinsomniacjoonscribble on December 20th, 2011 05:18 am (UTC)
Ah, yes, I've seen that reference as well. Apparently, this is a misinterpretation of Watson's use of the word "late." In ACD's time, one might refer to a woman as the late Jane Doe if Jane Doe got married and took her husband's last name. Which is what happened to this character in canon.

I'm really looking forward to seeing Jared Harris' Moriarty. I like him on Mad Men and he has the right amount of menace but also the cheese-factor when it comes to acting in a movie like this.

'Scrib, your brain...can I...can I touch it? *is awed* That is a cool fact to know.

Also, is your semester over yet? I'm currently studying for two finals. Tomorrow's going to be oh, so thrilling. *headdesks*
formerly lifeinsomniacjoonscribble on December 20th, 2011 05:25 am (UTC)
My brain is currently riddled with holes and decaying on one side but feel free to touch it!

From the above comment, you might deduce that NO, my semester is not over yet. I've got one more massive paper left.
Astoundingly fond of avocados and rainy weather.: LMS_SCREAMINGguardian_chaos on December 20th, 2011 05:29 am (UTC)
And here I was, thinking your reply to that request could not possibly be more disturbing than the actual request itself. You have proved me wrong! *offers duct tape and soothing tea for a speedy brain recovery*

When you say "massive paper", what does that entail, precisely? O_o
formerly lifeinsomniacjoonscribble on December 20th, 2011 05:31 am (UTC)
It's just a really big paper about Freud. I'm sort of hating writing it but I'm only about half way through so...yeah. Tomorrow will be an all day at the library day.
Astoundingly fond of avocados and rainy weather.: SPN_Rainguardian_chaos on December 20th, 2011 05:34 am (UTC)
Ah, Freud, the rock star of psychology. I can't help but wonder what relationships were like for that guy. Or, rather, what they were like for the person he was in that relationship with.

I think I'm taking next semester off so I can focus on paying off my car. It was one of those long-thought about decisions, but I think it's the right thing to do. It still makes me nervous.
formerly lifeinsomniacjoonscribble on December 20th, 2011 05:35 am (UTC)
So no school for you next semester?
Astoundingly fond of avocados and rainy weather.: BL_FlamingoInCrowdguardian_chaos on December 20th, 2011 05:42 am (UTC)
I expect to go back next Fall. I know, that's so much time. *fidgets* With work, I can't really be a part of the mini semesters in-between. But I've been feeling more and more lately that I need to step back from college for a little while and figure out my life. I haven't had time for many of the things I care about, and given a bunch of stuff happening, I don't think that, mentally, it's a good idea to keep on not having that time.

I've been stressed out a lot this semester... I just don't want that to get out of hand, I suppose. o_o
formerly lifeinsomniacjoonscribble on December 20th, 2011 05:44 am (UTC)
Makes sense to me. School should be a way to help you enhance your life, not bog it down. You'll return when it's right.
Astoundingly fond of avocados and rainy weather.: Sherlock_Heart+Mindguardian_chaos on December 20th, 2011 05:50 am (UTC)
Y'know...I've been increasingly surprised by the support I've gotten for this decision. I honestly expected everyone I know to say things like, "You should never drop school when you have the opportunity to be there. You should just plow through it. You're being foolish." And yet...your answer is one I've gotten more than once.

It's quite a relief. I've been in college for so long that letting it go--even for just one semester--is somewhat terrifying. But the signs that I need to be out of it are getting difficult to ignore.

I miss writing, for example. I'm hoping to have more time for it.

The problem I have with this series is misinterpretations like that - Ritchie obviously had someone read the original stories, but someone who is a complete moron about Victorian texts! ACD's fondness for the phrase "nursing a bull-pup" being interpreted to literally mean there were dogs about...sigh. SIGH. haha. Every time I see that damned dog outside of RDJ Holmes I want to smack people. Hisssssss.

...it might be obvious I'm a cat person rofl.

Eeek! Oh those are lovely! I just...yay! For some reason Sherlock telling the doorbell to shut-up made me lol. Maybe because my mum yells at the oven all the time. In fact, I could totally Sherlock yelling at the oven because he doesn't know how to use it.

...Anyway, I like how John is clearly more comfortable being Sherlock's footman now, instead of the vaguely embarrassed way he was doing it before.

So much love!

I like how Sherlock talks to objects as he would humans. Or rather maybe he talks to humans the way he would objects.
