    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.

    Dr Sullivan's finally got a nice little practice in the country, just like he always wanted - except it turns out there's a murderer at large. It's lucky for him he's got help from a visiting journalist, and, of course, his favourite little old lady, Miss Marple...

    Summary

    Another Darcy Lewis Soulmate fic inspired by Amusewithaview. So many ships she needs a bigger word.

    I'm taking requests! You can leave a comment or go to my tumblr, thedevilwearsatitaniumgoldalloy.tumblr.com

    Feel free to add onto, change, or make your own anything that I write. It would be so awesome to see how you spin Pirate Darcy Lewis or Darcy/JARVIS. Just make sure you tag me so I can read them.

    Summary

    As Katie runs from Bill, she reflects on how much she saw coming, and what she might have done to stop it. What kind of choices do we have, anyway, and how much of what we do is really out of our control? A short monologue for "Control" week at LiteraryFanFiction.

    Summary

    I’m not sure what this is. Some weird hybrid between freewriting, meta, and fiction. Anyway, it’s what happens if you listen to this on repeat while thinking meditatively about Over the Garden Wall with the intention of trying to write at least 1667 words in an hour.

    Summary

    This isn't a story; it's an invitation to a discussion. I can't get enough of talking about Brian Kinney, and I can't get enough of watching the show. This is my excuse to do both. Please, please, please join in - agree, disagree, tell me what you think Brian had for lunch - everything goes.

    This will go on for forever and hopefully trigger some story ideas (and ideas for my WIPs). No observation, thought or theory is too trivial or weird. Bring 'em on!

    "Discovering Brian" is a series with each season as a separate work/chapter.

    Yeah, I know that a lot of people don't like author insertion because it's hella meta, but for real, these are based off daydreams. It's called super meta one shots for a reason.

    Summary

    My impression of the Daily Mail is that it’s not anyone’s go-to rag for incisive cultural criticism. Still, I found Christopher Stevens's hysterical rejection of “The Fall“‘s first season interesting, in part because it’s almost a photographic negative of my own reaction to it. And because I think it bears out the old saying: “When a man tells you something is misogynist, it’s probably not.”
