So I’ve done Blogs on collecting, art and cosplay! But I’ve done nothing on my favorite part of the Sherlock verse yet, and that’s the fan-fiction! I love reading fan stories! My favorite stories, all come from a stack of Postcards! These Postcards are stories of John and Sherlock, posted by my friend mydogwatson! She’s a brilliant! Why are they called Postcards? I’ll let mydogwatson tell you and then I’ll share some of her favorites!

– – –

Sherlock Fans: How long have you been writing Sherlock stories, and when were you first introduced to the series?

mydogwatson: I wrote a few Sherlock Holmes stories years ago, just for myself. With this show, I started writing between season one and season two. I watched the first episode the night it aired in the USA and was in love immediately.

Light Years Away..

CWB copy

Light Years Away, and Beyond Baker Street, I spotlight a fellow Sherlock fan and her fun books! My friend Christine White has written a few books, that are sure to please Sci-Fi fans and Johnlock fans alike! Her first book is titled Light Years Away, her second Gravitational Forces!

Here’s a bit more on these two wonderful books and a way to purchase these books!

Mated to the Captain Book 1: Light Years Away

[Gay Sci-Fi romance featuring a sassy human, an irascible alien captain, and adventure beyond both their dreams.]

Unemployment is stressful enough—but throw in the threat of being tossed out the space station’s airlock as a vagrant, and human Del is in desperate need of employment. No job, no place to stay, Del wants nothing more than to be back out amongst the stars, preferably as a bridge crew member. Trouble is, his dreams are bigger than his starship experience and years, and Del finally heads to a bar to drown his frustrations.

Getting drunk might not have been the smartest thing to do—as he wakes in a strange, handsome alien’s bed, with no memory of the night before. When that strange alien calls him mate, Del thinks that maybe all his problems are over. He finally has a job. Or does he?

Quinn wants love and a family, but his duty as captain to a Xolian space cruiser leaves little time for forging relationships. When drunk and adorable human Del propositions him in a space bar, begging to be his first mate, Quinn hopes that maybe he can have both duty and love. Until the next morning, when the alcohol wears off and cultural barriers and misunderstandings set off a chain reaction of mayhem, mischief, and trouble that follows Del wherever he goes.

A relationship that began as a mistake may become something more—bound by love and desire, and all they must do now is survive the journey.

Mated to the Captain Book 2: Gravitational Forces

[Gay sci-fi romance featuring a sassy human, an irascible alien captain, and adventure beyond both their dreams.]

Just when he thought he was safe…

Trouble seemed to find Del no matter what he did. He got caged as a pet to a fly, caught in a trap as food, chased by a crazy, saw-wielding doctor and found himself mated to an alien Captain. One year after the consummation of their relationship Del thought that trouble was far behind him. Little did he know that life was going to get far more challenging and dangerous than ever before.

Quinn too was ready to get some rest and relaxation. But something strange followed them aboard the Narada Marant, something with tentacles and a unique appetite for Xolians. If that wasn’t bad enough, a cunning, evil warlord had his sights on kidnapping and selling Del. Looked like another rescue mission was going to be needed.

Getting pregnant would be the least of Del’s worries.

Again Kudos to a talented fan and friend!!

MEMBER SPOTLIGHT: MC

20180712_140451_resized

Nickname: Mc 

First introduced to BBC Sherlock: A friend knew I was enjoying the reboot of Doctor Who and recommended Sherlock. I binge-watched the first 2 series on Netflix in 2012 and there’s hardly a day that goes by that I haven’t watched all or part of an episode since. 
Favorite BBC Sherlock Character: Sherlock 
Favorite BBC Episode: The Sign of Three. It was an inspiration for me when I officiated a friend’s wedding. It also inspired kmy ideas for fanfiction. 
Sherlock Beyond BBC: [Anything you enjoy Sherlock related, that’s not BBC?] 
On my first trip to London, I had the pleasure of going to the Sherlock Holmes Museum. In my excitement I had to have a conversation with myself to remind myself that Sherlock Holmes was a fictitious character. 
Personal Interests: My friends accuse me of stalking Benedict Cumberbatch. In truth I’ve been extraordinarily fortunate in encountering him a few times. 
I enjoy traveling and I’m putting together a video travelogue of my Sherlock related travels. 

I enjoy doing what I call casual closet cosplay. I’m not sure if I could even call it cosplay compared the Fantastic work I’ve seen other people do. I get a kick out of being accepted. I’m particularly proud of my first attempt because I was immediately recognized as River Song. 

Making up fanfiction but it’s still mostly in my head.
Things I enjoy watching aside from Sherlock include: Grantchester kept me occupied while Sherlock was off on his adventures 

British programming. We’re lucky in the Washington DC area that we have several  PBS stations especially WETA UK, the only PBS station that does all UK programming. 
I tried to catch up on all things Marvel after watching Doctor Strange five times in the theaters. 

Where To Find Me: [Find me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and on this Blogging site!] Hit me up on this blogging site.

Member Spotlight: Lea Fleming!

DSC09690 (2)Lea in St. James Park – Standing on the bridge Sherlock and John walked across, in The Bloody Guardsman.

Name: L. Fleming

Nickname: Lea

A [U.S.A] Member 

Favorite character: Sherlock

First discovered Sherlock: Totally by accident. Flipping channels I landed on PBS during one of Steven and Mark’s Special Features (don’t remember which one) and paused long enough to get a little interested – hey! this was really different. Saw Benedict and thought he was so strange but I was not yet convinced.  Hurriedly I ordered Season 1 from Amazon and devoured it. But I had to hurry because S3 was coming out in two weeks!  So I ordered S2 and by the time S3 showed it was too late. I was obsessed.

Favorite episode: Scandal in Belgravia. I loved the tying together of Moriarty and Irene. Another whole episode could be written right there. And then the game playing between Irene and Sherlock was brilliant!  (This can’t be happening, can it?  This is not happening; this is happening, I think.  This couldn’t happen – or did it?) 

 Beyond BBC: Basil Rathbone was the ONLY Sherlock Holmes I would ever accept. I was such a snob that I had never even heard of Jeremy Brett until after Sherlock! My stepfather introduced me to SH when I was about 7 and I was allowed to stay up late on Sat. night and watch the Basil Rathbone classics.  (and if I remember rightly we also watched Peter Seller movies). Then I started reading ACD in high school and have read them all at least 3 times.

Personal interests:  Reading – ACD, Laurie R. King, Diana Gabaldon. Fashion, beauty – I own a salon and boutique. I love doing nails and being a personal shopper for my clients. All of whom have been gracious to accept my obsession with Benedict and Sherlock.  In fact, I’ve even converted a few – my goal in life right now. 

Things I enjoy watching aside from Sherlock include: I enjoy watching Outlander (would love to find an Outlander Con), Poldark, NCIS, Bull, Mr. Selfridge, anything Benedict is in and Instinct.

Where To Find Me: I’m on twitter and fb. On twitter I follow Sue, Amanda, Tom, Louise, & Mark. et al

 I am a member of Sherlock Fans USA, Sherlock Fans over 30, & Sherlockian Things.
