So I've recently gotten into another fandom - Sherlock. I had been introduced to it about this time last year, actually, but it really took me a while. XD

My dad had gotten Season 1 out from the library, and offered it to me to watch, but I was in the middle of my huge Doctor Who kick/making my SCARFDIS, and I didn't want to interfere with the progress I was making through the Second Doctor, so I declined at the time.

A few months later, I was searching for Doctor Who fic on dwfiction, and I happened to stumble across a Pondlock (Amy Pond/Sherlock, for the unaware) fic. The idea intrigued me, so I read it, and I actually really liked it. That's what started my foray into the fandom, and I finally got a chance to watch the show this last month.

Oh.
My.
FREAKING.
GOODNESS!!!!!!

I had kind of decided that Robert Downey Jr.'s Sherlock Holmes was THE Sherlock for me (and likewise, Jude Law's John Watson), but Benedict Cumberbatch (and Martin Freeman) have totally blown that out of the water. It took me a little while to reconcile this new development in my Sherlock hierarchy, but I've come to a decision - they're BOTH the best. :D

No, no... hear me out. This totally works.

The way I see it is... they're two completely different (and yet the same) Sherlocks. Two different eras. So they can be the best in two different ways. One modern, one 'traditional-era', as it were. (The one big difference being, though, that I can't seem to get into Sherlock Holmes fanfic, while Sherlock fic = BRING IT ON! It might have something to do with the fact that Martin (who's cute enough on his own) and Ben are adorable together... nah, couldn't be.

I still haven't watched The Reichenbach Falls yet, but I can't wait. I also can't wait for the fact that SEASON 3 is supposed to be coming in 2013 sometime. :D

Here's hoping I can find something to tide me over in the meantime... :P
