Hey Y'all

Name: Jeannette
Age: 23
Location: Germany (Lower Saxony)
What's in your journal: Weeeell, nothing much, really. Introduction, if someone gets lost there, and I couldn’t help but post my very first fanfic there, that I just had to write after I watched A Game of Shadows =). But only my first one, kind of short, well it was a first try =). I signed up so I’m not an anonymous anymore when I write in different fanfic search communities. And, well, I don’t really know anyone at live journal. My friends here don’t share my passion for the English language…or my movies, fanfics and such, for that matter…actually we don’t share any interest I’m pursuing in the internet, ‘cept maybe facebook if that counts.
And honestly, I’m not sure what to post in my journal.
What rating is your journal: PG, I guess.
Favourite Sherlock series/movie(s): definitely the Richie-verse *-*. When I saw the first movie with my sister, I absolutely fell in love with it. The movie is the reason for my RDJ addiction and the second kept me at the edge of my seat. Awesome. I read some canon as well after the first movie and do like the original as well :).
I have too admin I’m still debating with myself if I look into the BBC verse, I’m a little scared about the Holmes in modern time thing. Don't know why =).
Favourite Sherlock character(s): Sherlock Holmes, hands down, preferable played by Robert Downey Jr. But Watson is close behind and I like Mycroft and the Irregulars, too.
Favourite Sherlock pairing(s): No real pairing. If it’s nice fluffy then I occasionally read Holmes/Watson, but usual no pairing.
Interests/Hobbies outside of fandom: music, movies (especially at the cinema :)), reading in general, meeting my friends and doing something with my sisters.
Friending policy: I’m friendly to anyone who is friendly to me…and forgives the mistakes I still make with the language.
Where to add you: (lj, tumblr, dw, etc): lj
What you do in fandom: mostly reading, I’ve only written 4 little fics.
Other fandoms you like: Oh gosh, a lot. I like oldies, like the Dukes of Hazzard, A-team and Starsky and Hutch, but also Navy CIS, White Collar, Lord of the Rings, Pirates of the Caribbean, Iron Man, the Avengers, and more I can’t think about right now. At the moment, my interest in focused on Holmes mostly.
Anything else you'd like to share: I love to meet/talk to new people, especially with shared interests.

Introductions 101

Name: Maribeth
Age: 23 years old
Location: USA, Massachusetts, East Coast
What's in your journal: My offline life. I have a fanfiction journal, but have not updated it in a very long time. Most of the work there is based on the TV show "Supernatural", which I seem to have grown out of, and therefore I will most likely be deleting it soon.
What rating is your journal: As far as my offline life journal goes, I would say T+. Some of it may be M due to uncouth language and the subject matter therein. My fanfiction journal is most definitely M.
Favourite Sherlock series/movie(s): "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows".
Favourite Sherlock character(s): This is a toss-up between Mr. Downey Jr.'s Holmes and Mr. Law's Watson, as I adore both characters immensely. Holmes' quick mind, coupled with Watson's courage, is refreshing. And of course, their spirited banter is always appreciated. 
Favourite Sherlock pairing(s): In Mr. Ritchie's film world, Sherlock Holmes/John Watson. 
Interest/Hobbies outside of fandom: I am an avid writer outside of fanfiction. I am currently penning an original novel, along with rediscovering my love for poetry. I love to sing (though I'm of the humble opinion that my voice is not suited for the ears of the public!), and I read anything/everything in sight: newspapers, fiction, non-fiction, mystery, fantasy--et cetera, et cetera. And, of course, bloody good fanfiction. 
Friending policy: I have an open heart and mind, but please, don't simply friend me for the sake of friending. Having interests and would be a better incentive to cause me to friend you back. 
Where to add you: (lj, tumblr, dw, etc.) On LiveJournal I am fiery_fox2; on Facebook I'm Maribeth Shuman; and on Twitter (though I hardly use it anymore) I'm angel_wings20.
What you do in fandom: I discuss and occasionally debate, but mostly I can be found scattered throughout different communities leaving comments on fanfiction I've read. 
Other fandoms you like: To be truthful, this is the one only I'm interested in.
Other comms you likeholmeswatson09agoshadows_fic pixel_stardust
Anything else you'd like to share: I am a complete "newbie" to the Holmes/Watson Ritchie!verse fandom. I watched "A Game of Shadows" and my mind was immediately taken hostage by beautiful, flawed, and absolutely hilarious men. The comments I've received on my arc "Love's Bitter Sting" in the agoshadows_fic comm have boosted my confidence at being able to write for this pairing, and have helped me to become a better author in general. Thank you all, so much!

Evening All.

Name: Jill
Age: 23 (and a half)
Location: Scotland
What's in your journal: More recently it's been depressiony rants :(, but it ranges from fic to fun and memes and helpful observational comedy and even a few tv related posts on the odd occasion.
What rating is your journal: Usually pg13, but sometimes it does go higher, I cut though.
Favourite Sherlock series/movie(s): The BBC version, but I do like a bit of Richie.
Favourite Sherlock character(s): Sherlock himself ;)
Favourite Sherlock pairing(s): Sherlock/John and Mycroft/Lestrade
Interests/Hobbies outside of fandom: I am rather creative and like making stuff whether sewing, beading or building, I also spend a good chunk of time on the old family history research and I am also a web designer on the side while I'm being studenty again.
Friending policy: Anything goes really, well, if you friend me I may or may not notice until you pop up with a comment. However if you tell me or I notice I will add back.
Where to add you: (lj, tumblr, dw, etc) I only really have here.
What you do in fandom: I participate in fic challenges thegameison_sh and read extensively, oh and I'm also part of the staff of the SherlockNYC meetup thingumy.
Other fandoms you like: HP, Merlin, Doctor Who
Other comms you like: I can't think of any, but look at the ones I watch if you need to.
Anything else you'd like to share: I dedicated my undergraduate dissertation to my goldfish who sadly died while I was in the middle of writing it.

Nice to meet you all!

Name: Luna
Age: 18
Location: Missouri, USA (I'm not a farm girl! I'm from the city!)

What's in your journal: Currently a oneshot and the first chapter of a miniseries. Will add more later.

What rating is your journal: G to PG-13 I suppose. I doubt I'll end up writing smut, but who knows ;)

Favourite Sherlock series/movie(s): Currently it's BBC Sherlock, just because of Benedict Cumberbatch and his lovely eyes. But I love the Guy Ritchie!verse too.

Favourite Sherlock character(s): Holmes, in every series but the Grenada. That's Watson.

Favourite Sherlock pairing(s): Holmes/Watson! They have so much chemistry together in every possible circumstance. Yes, I know it's not canon, but how is making him have a relationship with Irene Adler more canon? Watson opens 'A Scandal in Bohemia' by telling the audience that Holmes feels nothing akin to love for her. I think it's much more likely that Holmes would fall for Watson, especially because he's the only person to develop a close personal relationship with him.

Interests/Hobbies outside of fandom: Poetry, cooking. I'll be studying hotel management next year and training for culinary school. I hope to own a restaurant one day!

Friending policy: I'm a little shy, so you'll have to tell me directly. ;)

Where to add you: LJ, but I'm also on fanfiction under the username Lawliet's Angel. (Thumbs up if you get the reference). I crosspost most of my work there, and I update the ff.net account more than I update the LJ.

What you do in fandom: Haunt the Holmes/Watson or Sherlock/John sections. I'm in love with love at the moment, so I like nothing more than a good fic with believable and interesting romance.

Other fandoms you like: Harry Potter, MLP FIM,  anything having to do with memes or ragecomics.

Other comms you like: anything involving Sherlock Holmes, really.

Anything else you'd like to share: I'm heading off to college next year, leaving my friends and family behind for an unfamiliar environment. While I'm very happy to be going where I'm going, I'd still like to have some friends that transcend the boundaries of state or country to keep me pulling through. I'd love to discuss fiction or episodes or poetry.

Thanks guys!

Why hello ;)

Age: 18

Location: Scotland

What's in your journal: Erm, pretty much nothing, right now... Up until about a month ago I was a lonely little lurker - it was there, but I didn't do anything with it. However I can promise fic, fic, more fic, rants about my job/life in general, squeeful posts about fandom related topics and, well, a fuckload of random crap, really. But it will be interesting, honests.) 

What rating is your journal: I swear too much and write explicit fanfiction all the time every so often.

Favourite Sherlock series/movie(s): I got into Sherlock Holmes via the Ritchie films, so they'll always hold a special place in my heart, but I enjoy the BBC adaptation and I've read a fair bit of the canon.

Favourite Sherlock character(s): Sherlock Holmes himself *cough*especially if RDJ is playing him*cough*, John Watson (especially in the BBC series, because Martin Freeman is AWESOME. 

Favourite Sherlock pairing(s): Holmes/Watson, Irene/Holmes, Irene/Mary

Interests/Hobbies outside of fandom: One day I will be a screenwriter, or possibly a film critic. Currently I'm on a gap year which involves me sitting around watching bad tv or working.

Friending policy: Friend me, I friend back. I don't bite, honest.   

Where to add you: I only have a livejournal, so here, really.

What you do in fandom: I write fics. I would draw, but alas, I cannot. I'm also a professional lurker.

What rating is your journal: PG-13. Due to my love of cursing in type (in RL & in fic). ;)

Favourite Sherlock series/movie(s): Prolly both of the Ritchie/Downey Jr./Law films (1st place). They're just so FUN! :) I also like ACD!canon (a close 2nd). And the 21st-century-set Beeb version IS pretty decent too (3rd).

Always nice to see you.

Name: Kaci
Age: 28
Location: Nebraska, USA

What's in your journal: Personal stuff, fandom stuff. Anything that doesn't quite fit on my tumblr.
What rating is your journal: Not rated.

Favourite Sherlock series/movie(s): If I have to pick one, I would pick the Guy Ritchie re-imagining. I think the translation to a broader audience yielded some interesting changes to the characters which I have enjoyed exploring. For further explanation, read more here. But I also adore canon (obviously), Granada Holmes, and BBC Sherlock.

Favourite Sherlock character(s): The great man himself, Sherlock Holmes

Favourite Sherlock pairing(s): Holmes/Watson in canon, movieverse, and Granada. Not BBC, alas. How he is portrayed, Sherlock has better things to do than succumb to such boring human reactions as lust, and John, well I have seen no evidence that John loves anything but the ladies. That being said, I adore the chemistry between these two (their bickering is reminiscent of Ritchie's Holmes and Watson), and I am eager to see their friendship continue to develop.

Interests/Hobbies outside of fandom: History. By day, I am an historian, a graduate student going for my Master's in history.

Friending policy: Drop a comment to be added.

Where to add you: (lj, tumblr, dw, etc.) I'm on LJ here, tumblr, and dreamwidth.

What you do in fandom: My favorite thing to do is analyze the characters. I should have added over-analyzing to my list of interests. Seriously, I love nothing more than a good discussion. Along those lines, I also enjoy working out the characters through writing and reading fanfic. My writing journal can be found here.

Other fandoms you like: Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Lost, Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, Star Trek, How I Met Your Mother, &c. Honestly, I just love film and television. I will join in a conversation anywhere.

Other comms you like: holmeswatson09 doctorwho I have been absent from LJ for a while, so I could use some recommendations.

Anything else you'd like to share: I'm just looking for some fellow Holmes enthusiasts who would be willing to debate/discuss/&c. I don't mind bouts of fangirling (let's face it, we all go there from time to time), but I would rather it not be the basis of your participation in fandom. A gal can only take so much.
