    Summary

    At this point, more than 100 posts in, I do think it only fair to rewrite this intro. This is a whopping big heap of meta posts, dealing primarily with *Sherlock*, though heaven knows a lot of other literature and art wanders through. The writing quality and style varies from fairly good pseudo-academic to outright fangirl squee. If it's worth reading at all, it's worth reading because it's fun watching someone who really does care how art works go hunting for the engines that drive the show, and to guess at the hidden and not-so-hidden details that may shape the future of the show.

    Original intro below:

    Of all these little meta digressions, this is more truly an essay and piece of lit-crit. I had a chunk of last night and this morning to think about the structure and nature of how a story is told, and what your perception of the story does to your choices of through-lines. This is a lit-crit essay focusing on *Sherlock*, and using Dorothy Sayers and Agatha Christie as paradigmatic examples of two different approaches to the development of narrative spines and through-lines. Meta. Essay. Lit-crit. Analysis. Dry. Somewhat academic. Consider yourselves thoroughly warned. My inner honor student shineth forth.

    Summary

    Have you noticed how Italy doesn't seem to be covered by any of the three major European magical schools--not even Beauxbatons, that accepts students from practically every other country adjoining France?
    In a sudden, unexplainable surge of patriotism, I'm attempting to fix it.

    Summary

    Albus Potter had never been more nervous in his life. He was more nervous than the time he had somehow missed Lily dropping the family cat into a bubbling cauldron while he was supposed to be watching her. He was more nervous than the time his parents had thought it would be a fun idea for their terrified child to lead out the Holyhead Harpies at a charity Quidditch match as a mascot. He was even more nervous than when James had insisted Quidditch team mascots served as back-up Quaffles in case the real ones went missing. He was overwhelmingly, sickeningly, agonisingly nervous.

    Canon-compliant Albus sorting fic. Second chapter is an essay on why Albus was sorted into Slytherin.

    Summary

    A series of essays discussing various themes and character points in RWBY. Most will be debatable, some will be polarizing, and conversation is welcome regarding all of them. If you manage to convince me I'm wrong, I may even retract an essay.

    Trigger warnings: I will discuss shipping, and I will argue that some are canon and others are not. If you can't deal with the idea that your particular ship isn't going to happen in the show, I recommend you avoid those essays at least and potentially the series as a whole. I will also discuss the merits of Volumes 3 and 4; if you can't stand the idea that someone might disagree as to whether the latter part of canon is good, you might want to avoid the pertinent essays to that topic or, again, the series as a whole.

    Summary

    I personally find the fandom to be a judgement free zone and yet it's easier finding a needle in a haystack then it is finding a fic that portray's John Winchester as a Good Person...I hope that trend changes because it is so played out...12 years later you still see John as ''bad guy" if this does not change your persective of John nothing will.
