Giving Lives a Second Chance (6125 words) by SeraphinaGreene [AO3]

Chapters: 10/10
Fandom: Sherlock (TV)
Rating: Mature
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Sherlock Holmes, John Watson, Mrs. Hudson
Additional Tags: BBC Sherlock - Freeform, ghost!John, Ghost!Sherlock, Psychic!Mrs.Hudson
Summary:

Perhaps things hadn’t ended they way they’d planned. Perhaps the intended meeting fate had planned wasn’t as set in stone as many had thought. Perhaps John hadn’t been hit in the same place by that bullet in Afghanistan. Perhaps he hadn’t survived. Perhaps he hadn’t been there for Sherlock when he ran into trouble. Perhaps while John returned in a coffin to his sister, Sherlock went to solve “A Study in Pink” on his own. Perhaps he took the poison, stalling just a bit too short.

Perhaps they have a different meeting. Perhaps Mrs. Hudson, a woman Sherlock knows, is more than he ever could have deduced. Perhaps he shares a flat (for ghosts) with a man he cannot hear, see, or feel. Perhaps this “John Watson” a man he can only see in his reflections, is more than ordinary. Perhaps he’s falling in love.

Perhaps this “Sherlock Holmes” is more than a bumbling moron who insists on moving his cane about the flat and keeps body parts in his fridge. Perhaps this man, who he cannot hear, see, or feel, is more than even brilliant. Perhaps he feels the same.

Perhaps, in the end, it is all simply fate Giving Lives a Second Chance.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Def read this one. It’s not as sad as it sounds. A lovely way for Sherlock and John to meet, and a lovely way for them to finally come together.

Two Lists (1382 words) by frostian [AO3]

Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Sherlock (TV)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Characters: Sherlock Holmes, John Watson
Summary:

“I know you found my list,” John said with a touch of sadness. “And what I do today.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Small amount of angst, but well worth the read. It’s never said, but I believe the day in the story is Armistice Day. I’ll let you take it from there so I don’t give away spoilers.

Handy link to Dragon Con's Harassment Policy!

bookshop:

Please pass this around for everyone attending the con this weekend!

Also, if you’re going to be at DC, here’s some tips that can hopefully help if you’re in an uncomfortable situation:

Look for someone wearing a red lanyard. Folks with red lanyards are DC volunteers and they can help you.

- Strangers touching your costume, hair, or body without your consent = harassment, and it’s okay to remind them of it.

- Strangers taking your picture without your permission or knowledge = harassment. If you see this happening to someone else at the con, speak up and alert security! 

- Take note of the offender’s name, badge, and any other details like costuming/clothing, etc.

- If an offender gives you pushback or gets defensive, state firmly, “This con has a harassment policy.”  

- The Dragon Con security room is Marriott room M102.

- If you see something, say something.

Have a safe and fun con!

Can you do the “Forgive me” look in the train car? I would love to see you do some angst Sherlock. I don’t have a link cause I’m on my phone, sorry.

You mean this one? Or this one?

They’re big photos, but they’re kind of low quality, sadly… I suppose I could always try, though. :) I’ll add ‘em both to my list.

Any other suggestions, anyone?

The first one is the forgive me look, I call the second one hope because that’s where John begins his forgiveness speech. Heh.  Thanks!

Filed under for some reason I couldn't reply to your post sorry!

Anonymous asked: "Sherlock, the alley is too narrow for us to...," John tried to tell him as they tried to take a shortcut as they pursued a suspect, "great now we're stuck like this." "Oops," Sherlock replied and then proceeded to wiggle in an attempt to reach his phone. "Sherlock, stop, don't," John protested and tried to remain still. "John, you um..." Sherlock said looking down at where their bodies were pressed together. "Sherlock, did you take us down this alley on purpose?" John asked. "Maybe..."

Cosplayers Fight for Online Anonymity and Privacy During Dragon Con

bakerstreetbabes:

Atlanta - The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), sci-fi blog io9, and a coalition of fan communities are launching “Project Secret Identity,” a cosplay photo campaign to raise awareness of the importance of anonymity and privacy during the annual pop culture convention Dragon Con in Atlanta, Georgia, Aug. 29 - Sept. 1.

The campaign, online at ProjectSecretIdentity.org, is supported by a cross-fandom coalition of organizations, including: Southeastern Browncoats, a Firefly-inspired non-profit; the Harry Potter Alliance, an activism organization; the Baker Street Babes, a Sherlock Holmes fan group and podcast; Wattpad, a community of readers and writers; and the Organization for Transformative Works, a fan-culture advocacy organization.

"Whether it’s the ‘Eye of Sauron’ in The Lord of the Rings or ‘The Machine’ in Person of Interest, genre culture has long explored and criticized mass surveillance,” said EFF Investigative Researcher Dave Maass. “The last year’s worth of stories about the NSA have read too much like dystopian fiction. In response, we need to focus the imaginations of fans to advocate for a future where free expression is protected through privacy and anonymity. “

During the campaign, cosplayers around the world can use ProjectSecretIdentity.org to post photos of themselves in costume bearing pro-anonymity slogans, such as “I Have the Right to a Secret Identity” and “Privacy is Not a Fantasy.” Dragon Con attendees can also stop by the Project Secret Identity photo stations at EFF’s table (second floor at the Hilton Atlanta) and the Southeastern Browncoats’ booth (#1000 at AmericasMart).

"In J.K. Rowling’s novels, Voldemort came to power not only through coercion, but by monitoring, controlling, and censoring the Wizarding World’s lines of communication," Harry Potter Alliance Executive Director Paul DeGeorge said. "In the real world, there is no charm-protected room where we can meet and organize in secret. What we have is the Internet and we need to fight to keep it free and secure."

"Freedom from oppressive governments is central to the ethos of theFirefly fandom,” said Serenity Richards, captain of the Southeastern Browncoats. “By standing up for anonymity today, we can prevent ‘The Alliance’ from becoming a reality in the future.”

The activism campaign coincides with Dragon Con’s Electronic Frontiers Forum, a track of panels on the intersection of technology with free speech and privacy. EFF Deputy General Counsel Kurt Opsahl will present an update to his acclaimed presentation, “Through a PRISM, Darkly: Everything we know about NSA spying,” which debuted at the Chaos Communication Congress in Hamburg, Germany in December 2013. Opsahl and Maass will also speak on a number of discussion panels, covering issues ranging from police searches of cell phones to the Freedom of Information Act.

EFF will also support screenings of Terms and Conditions May Apply, a 2013 documentary about Web site terms of service, and The Internet’s Own Boy, Brian Knappenberger’s 2014 documentary about the late Internet activist Aaron Swartz.

Founded in 1987, Dragon Con is expected to draw more than 62,000 attendees this year.

Taylor from the BSB will be at DragonCon on the Sherlock panel as well as on the Brit Track panels, so do go say hello, and please join in on this campaign by taking photographs and attending their panels and meet-ups!

A MESSAGE FROM MASSIVE EVENTS ABOUT SHERLOCKED: THE OFFICIAL SHERLOCK CONVENTION

sherlockology:

As fans ourselves we totally understand the frustration some of you are having on here! I want everyone to know we are still working very hard on a date that works for as many of the main cast of the show to attend as possible! This has been one of the hardest tasks we have ever had to deal with and we now understand how difficult it must be to film the actual tv show as so many of the main cast are incredibly busy and popular! We just wanted to let you all know that we really do care and we want to deliver the most incredible event we can and that is why things are taking a bit more time that we originally anticipated.

Having said all that, we do appear to be getting somewhere with guest availability now and so hopefully things should start to move forward soon! I also accept that communication is very important and that has not been the best so far. There are always going to be things that I can’t discuss in public, for a whole host of reasons. However, starting today with this post I will come on here and give you all a weekly update every Thursday with how things are going! It may be that I’m on here more if something exciting happens, but at a minimum you can expect to hear from me on a Thursday with some information as to what’s been going on! I will also endeavour to answer any questions I can!

Again, thank you SO much for your patience and support. Going forwards I will ensure that communication is kept up and even more importantly, I hope to have some concrete news on the event in the not too distant future.

Take care

Mark

PLEASE NOTE: We have since amended this post as Ian Hallard has clarified on Twitter that the Facebook message from “Mark” is in fact NOT Mark Gatiss! Muddled information in all the excitement we’re afraid. It happens, but we apologize for any confusion it may have caused.
