Somehow, someway, we have actually managed to defy the weird Zeno's paradox by which every chapter of this fic seemed to keep covering smaller and smaller periods of time in their lives and arrived at...the NBT finale! And eventually, somehow, someway, the finale might even end. (Although it's not in sight according to the page and a half of fic outline I have in front of me.)

In preparation for the day the finale might end and Next Big Thing MIGHT ACTUALLY HAVE A WINNER, here's where you vote, Fwitter and Fumblr! (If you haven't been reading Next Big Thing but want to be able to vote, the three chapters with the three finalist designs start at Chapter 198. Yeah, I know, not a typo, CHAPTER 198 WHAT EVEN.)

Poll #2013560 NBT Finale!!!!

Sunny
12(16.2%)
Gon

There was lots of mad-related pop culture this weekend.

First, because of my Tom Hardy thing, I saw Mad Max. Much more detailed review about the "radical feminist" nature of this movie here, but if you want to know if Tom Hardy was hot in the movie, he was *super* hot in the movie.

Second, I watched the series finale of Mad Men.

MASSIVE SPOILERSCollapse )

    This past weekend I got to go to New York! On Thursday night before I left I was utterly exhausted and curled up in a chair when I got home from work and just felt terrible, and at first I was convinced it was an adrenaline crash from reaching the end of the semester. Although my mother pointed out that I’ve been complaining about being exhausted for a while and she said that I sounded like when I had mono and maybe I should take it easy in New York.

    More about New York!Collapse )

    I had to get my car's oil changed today. So I brought it to the nearest place, where I failed entirely to understand most of what anybody there said to me, because I have the toughest time understanding the accent here, and I imagine it's mutual, and that we basically just fail to communicate with each other.

    Title - Keep the Car Running (31/31)
    Author - earlgreytea68
    Rating - Adult
    Characters - Arthur, Eames, Sherlock, John, Mycroft, Moriarty, Lestrade, Mrs. Hudson, Dom Cobb
    Spoilers - Through "His Last Vow" in the Sherlock universe. This takes place post-movie, so I guess spoilers for "Inception"? But just for the basic fact that it's about dream thieves, nothing in this story depends overly much on the movie's plot.
    Disclaimer - I don't own any of them and I don't make money off of them, but I don't like to dwell on that, so let's move on.
    Summary - If Mycroft Holmes lived in a world where people could steal information from the subconsciouses of others, tell me he wouldn't be all over that when he had Moriarty in custody.
    Author's Notes - Here we are, somehow, already. At the end of Part I. YES. PART I. THAT'S HOW LONG THIS FIC IS. I remember when I started posting I was like, "Oh, look how lovely and long it is, I'll buy myself all sorts of time to write other stuff!" Which I did. But it was so long ago that I was still so worried about my Arthur and my Eames and now I read bits of this fic over and I'm like, "Aww, look at my babies, we've come so far together, boys." Heh. Fics are journeys for all of us.

    I have, of course, as always, so many people to thank. I thanked them in the first chapter, and I bookend with thanking them here: snookiescookies and mykmyk and Kristin for checking my sanity; knackorcraft for doing a close reading and making sure it made sense and the characters worked and generally seven million other things; and arctacuda, as ever, who always knows just how something should be tweaked to re-work it and is very patient when I go off on crazy tangents and copes with my constant mild hysteria. Through their efforts, this fic is a much, much, much better fic than it was when it first came out of my head.

    Also, thank you to all of you for sticking with it, if you were new to the Inception fandom or the Sherlock fandom or if they were both already favorites of yours. Your comments were unfailingly good feedback and you helped to shape this fic more than any of you know because you don't get to see how the drafts change in response to how you guys react. But you're all so helpful, and lovely, and delightful, and I love to write for all of you, so thank you for reading.
