Bit crazed today with work and commitments, especially after attendee the volunteer meeting for the Seattle Sherlock Convention (much more information forthcoming). (And yes, Sherlock Cares will be there with t-shirts, totes and more. Thank you for asking.)
At the meeting I met a delightful actress and fan video maker named Beverly who has done this marvelous Post-Reichenbach piece I thought I’d share today (yes, I do have most of the flash fic I promised done and, knock wood, it will go up later today).
As some of you know I prefer my angst in small doses, but this was such a beautiful discovery I had to share. It’s got me itching to get back to being able to write so I can do my post-Reichenbach Falls Mycroft story.
SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT!
If you haven’t watched Reichenbach Fall (Season 3, Episode 3) of BBC Sherlock, don’t watch the video. It’s all the climatic scenes.
This video is much better than the movie the voiceover came from (The Prestige), however, Michael Caine plus Sherlock is a win no matter how you look at it. I find the editor of this video did an amazing job making Andrew Scott, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman’s performances even more evocative.
And I’m thinking this is a small warning to Moffat and Gatiss that the fans are expecting something amazing for Season 3 Episode 1 and The Return.
Still recovering so I’m running a bit behind on the updates and upgrades to the site. Please be patient and please check back. I’m keeping to my Caption-A-Day Pledge.
Hurray! Another new fan video by HFS (High Functioning Sociopath).
HighFunctioning Sociopath Note:
This one took forever. At times it looks like I channeled Michael Bay. Apologies. I won’t apologize for the innuendo in the final sequence. I don’t actually believe there is anything but a life-long friendship between Holmes and Watson, but an accidental pairing of two clips made me laugh and after that everything just fell into place. I ended up going back and adding all of the Mycroft reaction shots and laughed more. So I kept it.
Hurray! Another exclusive video from HighFunctioningSociopath and some exciting news. It seems HFS is strapped for time and would rather make videos than build and maintain a website to show the videos for now, so we are going to be hosting them for a bit. (And yes, there are more in the works.) — Watson, Admin
[From HighFunctioningSociopath: This is actually one of a pair done post-Reichenbach. The one from Sherlock’s point of view was started first but hasn’t been finished. This one just seemed to come more easily. Martin Freeman was so powerful in this episode.]
Very excited! Our first Guest. Our first non-YouTube fan music video.
Since all the True Friends of the BBC series Sherlock will be keeping their fingers crossed for a Big Night for Team Sherlock and Benedict Cumberbatch in particular (although a second BAFTA for Martin Freeman would be nice), I agreed this was an appropriate choice.
Thank You Shout Out @HighFunctioning Sociopath!
Note from HighFunctioning Sociopath: This is for H who likes her video like good scotch — neat and straight.

I’ve seen the “Hitler Reacts” meme for dozens of other topics, but I spewed tea all over my cat when I saw this one for BBC Sherlock. (I’ve been know to walk around saying “I should have stayed in anime like Stalin” when I’ve been particularly depressed about how long we have to wait for Season 3. We are definitely The Fandom Who Waits…)
FYI, the actual German movie, The Downfall, is brilliant as well.
I’ve been waiting for a chance to start sharing some of my favorite fan videos because most of them contain bits from Season 2 of BBC Sherlock, but now I’m free at last, free at last. However, I’m certain some of you are feeling a bit down after The Fall. Okay, in total and complete shock. So here’s a little something that shows even really horribly offensive movies can have value.
[Note: I love Andrew Scott’s Moriarty in this. It shows there’s a fine line between genius and doofus…]
