So, there's a new layout. HURRAH. The code was written by the obviously enormously talented [livejournal.com profile] toledan_night (here). I changed the colour scheme, added a new header and background; and I gotta say, I kinda like it. :) Not quite done, though.

The theme is the love child of David Gray's Sail Away With Me and the notion of Kirk and Spock being unambiguously gay for each other. IN SPACE. WHILE BEING PIRATES. Okay, no, that's the cracky version. I think I just love the sea. And Jim looking like he's thinking really hard about Spock. :D

The funny thing is, when it comes to fanfic I almost exclusively read feel-good stuff or at least stories with a happy ending because my love-live consists of reading about non-existent people getting it on but art-wise, especially my own, it mostly ends up being somewhat angsty. Huh. Also, I might change the header to something Dean/Castiel because I've fallen so hard for them and it doesn't look like I'm gonna hit the ground any time soon. PUDDING!!! \o/

In private detecting news, I will FINALLY go and watch Sherlock Holmes on Tuesday. Anyone wanna join? LOOK AT THESE PICS AND TELL ME YOU DON'T WANT TO WATCH IT (AGAIN).

YOU ARE THE BEST ENABLER DIE WO'S GIBT! SHAME ON YOU. ;P

I already made a rough version of a D/C header and I can tell you it's pretty and cracky and HAS OF COURSE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT COLOURS WHICH MEANS I WILL HAVE TO RE-DO THE ENTIRE LAYOUT. But then I will have a Dean/Castiel layout! PUDDING!!! \o/

So the comm I found last night is [livejournal.com profile] mishaland and it's completely asscrack crazy and capslock-only and wonderful fun for the insane units of the whole family. :D Have you by any chance found it already?

It's where I found this gif which had me literally loling forever.

The header is actually pretty much done (though, I'm pondering adding a rainbow; honestly, that comm changed me), as is the background. But i'll have to adjust the colours in the css and then i'll want to make pretty art and post it and that takes tiiiiiiiiiime. :/ which, cry over it as much as i want, i don't have at the moment. (upcoming exams and stuff...)

that's the plan anyway. don't know if i'll be able to stick to it. honestly, there sooooo much i wanna do and not enough time. D:

duuuuuuude. you're already in that comm. i checked. come and party with us!

Nothing wrong with a rainbow in the background!

I know I'm in the com already.. I joined when you first told me about it.. But only today I realized I hadn't commented back yet *coughs*

Only those pictures don't have anything to do with Sherlock Holmes, so I don't get it. But then I'd rather bathe in boiling hot water than watch Sherlock Holmes again.

So I gather you didn't like it?

This movie really seems to be one of those you can either love or hate with a burning passion. Most of the negative reviews were about feeling screwed with re: Teh Gay.

I will have an opinion of my own in two days.

If you subscribe to the notion that RDJ does not, in fact, play the actual Holmes, but a character that incidentaly has the same name, than yes, they do not. :)

I couldn't care less about teh gay in the film, but the mystery is laughably bad and all the characters are one-dimensional cartoons and we ended up caring about nobody. The film maybe pretty on the outside, but it's soulless and boring. (And yeah, the HoYay is really nothing to write home about, I've seen better.)

*puts fingers in ears and hums loudly over the D/C part*

Your header isn't showing up for me, but the background is pretteh. Also: RD Fucking J. All our arguments are valid.

Hehe. Somewhere between Heaven, Hell, and Earth everyone finds their happy place. :D

Oh! Thanks for letting me know. Does it show up now? I had set the privacy setting to 'private' and hope that now that's fixed it shows up proper.

And yay you like the background!

RDJ is the most validating force this side of Starfleet Headquarters when it comes to arguments!

*Sigh* Your header's gorgeous.

And same here on the happy endings front. I don't mind angst as long as there's something at least mildly hopeful at the end. I swear, K/S has turned me into such a sappy romantic, it's ridiculous.

Thanks! I'm very happy you think so. ♥

IKR? Though, I'm afraid, life has made me into a sappy romantic to, you know, balance it out. XD

K/S's sweet lovin' with all its hand-holding and mindmelded!secksing is such a sweet place. And the inherent angst just makes it sweeter! Wow, I just typed 'sweet' three times in one sentence so let me just remind myself that... WHEN SPOCK DIES HE CAN'T EVEN TOUCH JIM OH GOD. D:

HNNNNG moar RDJ.
I'm actually going into withdrawal for that movie or something. I have to go find some shitty theatre-recorded copy on the interbutts or I'll go nuts. Holmes/Watson, Y/Y?

I rather enjoyed it too. Though, clearly, the character of Holmes is very different from the books. But as such - as a completely new interpretation - it was indeed very charming. I wasn't even pissed off at the slash vs het theme (if you can call it that) because I could perfectly understand why Law's Watson is... hesitant to commit to Holmes.

Holmes/Watson, Y/Y?

I think I'm actually at the point where I can completely separate movies from books. RDJ!Holmes' personality is half RDJ, which is just plain fun. Plus it's like Holmes is asexual in the books, but bisexual in that movie. It works somehow.
Do you like Jeremy Brett!Holmes? I'm hunting that show down right now (with difficulty).

...and Watson!sexual in the Granada series. :D

Oh God, there were a couple months last year where I constantly did that thing with my index finger against my mouth - just like Brett!Holmes (it made me feel very smart!). I was absolutely madly in love with him! I still am, but the flame burnt so hot it couldn't last. Plus, he's kinda dead, unlike other clever, witty and gorgeous overlords people.

Shit, now I feel bad about myself. SOMEONE BEING DEAD IS NO REASON TO ABANDON THEM, SELF!

Don't feel bad about yourself,just go with the flow.Dead or not I still adore Mr Brett ,we all might as well just enjoy it-and him . He was the best Sherlock Holmes ever.
