dean has strong and lovely hands

the end of the summer

Hi, everybody!

What's shaking with all of you? Things have been busy here, between work and family and friends and actually starting to write that fic that I've been planning out for over a year, the last in my Elastic Heart (Sherlock BBC) series. I've got about 3600 words right now, and will write some more after I finish this post. (I also signed up for holmes_big_bang and hope to post not this story but a more BBC-canon story for that challenge.) Here's some of the stuff I've been up to/wanting to post about:

Watching the women's final of the US Open reminded me I was going to say something about my boy Rafael Nadal - about my disappointment in not seeing him carry Spain's flag in the Opening Ceremonies of the London Olympics and not seeing him at this US Open - but I'll keep it to this: get well soon, Rafa. The sport needs you.

And can you believe it's time to start thinking about Yuletide again? Here's my list of fandoms to nominate (in no particular order), which I still need to whittle down to three:
Awake
The Unusuals
(Schraeger and Walsh definitely; either Banks and Delahoy to round out the set or Beaumont and the chief)
Walking and Talking
Rome
(Vorenus)
Case Histories
Sports Night
(Dan, Dana, Isaac)
Suits (Harvey but not Mike)
The Tin Princess - Philip Pullman
To the Ends of the Earth
The Good Wife
The Fall
Tropic Thunder
Touching Evil
(US)
Possession (2009)
What's on your list?

And lastly - it was Martin Freeman's birthday yesterday, and it's almost autumn - my favorite season, not least because of my birthday. Two reasons to celebrate!
