So, here's the thing.

I fucking love Bakery AUs.

This is awkward for a number of reasons, one being that I don't eat, y'know, anything you could make in a bakery. I don't even like bread. Seriously, I buy that unnaturally thin stuff so when I make sandwiches there will be even less bread involved. I also can't actually remember the last time I walked into a bakery. It probably wasn't willingly. So I have like zero experience with bakeries and their general foodstuffs, and I don't, as a rule, like the things they produce. And, yet, I love Bakery AUs.

The real problem with this is that I want to write a Bakery AU. Specifically I want to write a Sherlock/John Bakery AU. But a) I know nothing about bakeries, including what happens in them day to day and b) I don't know how to bake shit, and I figure professional baking is not something you can just fake (I mean, I guess I could try, but that'd add another level of ignorance on top of an American writing in a British fandom, and, yeah, I'd rather not) and c) I have no fucking clue how either John or Sherlock would wind up owning a bakery. The closest I could work it towards making sense is Harry owning the bakery. An alcoholic baker. That bakery would clearly be a raging success. Plus John doesn't, y'know, willingly entangle himself with Harry. SO BASICALLY I CAN'T MAKE IT WORK EVEN THOUGH I WANT TO.

That is my sad story for the day. I am sorry for the like minute you lost reading that.

So I am writing a thing over on AO3 that is pretty strange, about Sherlock being a treasure hunter and John basically being a post-apocalyptic magician in a steam punk city. And now it comes with free music! This is the playlist I write this story to. Maybe you will like it, idk. Unless you don't like indie music, in which case you probably shouldn't download it.

You can get it over here. The playlist is below, so you can decide if it's worth the 45 second wait or whatever.

Cults: Abducted
Is Tropical: Clouds
Foster the People: Pumped Up Kicks
Andrew Bird: Not a Robot, But a Ghost
Bat for Lashes: Horse and I
Beirut: Cliquot
The Black & White Years: Power to Change
Cloud Cult: Please Remain Calm
Crystal Castles: Courtship Dating
Damien Rice: Volcano
Eisley: Marvelous Things
Pixies: La La Love You

And here is the 8tracks version for those of you who have, idk, a moral opposition to free music that I guess might be illegal.

So I am pretty much writing purely fanfic these days. Generally I try not to cross the streams on here or whatever, but, uh, since I have nothing else to offer you, I'm probably going to start posting about that. Or possibly just about my TREMENDOUS WRITERS BLOCK you guys wouldn't believe it. Well, maybe you would. But I went from writing 20,000 words of fandom nonsense in three weeks to writing... nothing. Which is always frustrating. Especially since I just posted a story (this story if you are interested in ridiculous stories about Cupid and Aphrodite failing to matchmake people, specifically Sherlock and John, which maybe you are) that I swore would be updated and finished quickly. Hahaha, I should have known better than that.

Aside from that, though, I can't remember the last time I was in a fandom that made me produce like this. Actually, yes I do, it was HP back in 2005/2006. (Ironically, my arguably most well known Sherlock fics are the HP crossovers. /o\) If we are counting RP stuff along with it, I greatly outproduced myself back then. If we aren't then, holy shit, I have been possessed by some bizarre fandom spirit. I think this is because Sherlock is generally cooler than all other cool things at present. But that is just my opinion, maybe you think other thinks are cooler.

Also, I just bought OmniOutliner, and it may be the greatest thing to happen to me in the last month, which isn't hard, since the last month has been pretty shitty. But it is a generally awesome program that makes plotting long shit (the vast majority of what I write /o\) far less painful. Not painless. Nothing short of a personality transplant would make plotting painless. But it's a help.
