Sorry this will be long; forgot to update here recently.

Recently read:
- Lock & Mori (and it's sequel Mind Games) by Heather Petty. I still have the last book in the series, Final Fall, to read but I'm kinda putting it off. It's basically a YA version of Holmes with a genderbent Moriarty. Also they're dating and Holmes is adorable--the best boy, I'm love him so much. My big problem with it is that Mori is the main character, and it's told in first person, and I just...never connected with her. Ever. She's never felt like a Moriarty and it's difficult to suspend disbelief enough to think she'll eventually become a criminal mastermind when she's the most impulsive character in the series. Overall, it's not bad--Sherlock and Mycroft are especially good--but I'm kinda eh about finishing the series.

- The Lost Special by Arthur Conan Doyle. Train goes poof, newspaper details how they found out who vanished it...eight years later. It was nice but really hard to find.

- Years Ago and in a Different Place by Michael Kurland. -lays down, tries not to be sad, is still sad- I read this one a long time ago but decided to reread it recently and this line still gives me so many thoughts and feels:

“I didn’t know what you knew,” he said. “I was a fool. But you—what were you?”

I had no answer for him. Perhaps I should have guessed what Lucy intended. Perhaps I did guess. Perhaps, on some unconscious level I weighed the options of her ending her own life, or of her facing an English jury, and then being taken out one cold morning, and having the hood tied around her head and the heavy hemp rope around her neck, and hearing a pusillanimous parson murmuring homilies at her until they sprang the trap.

Started:
- The Art in the Blood by Bonnie Macbird. I don't know if I'll finish this. The writing style is really nice and it is Holmesian and I'm curious about the case, but it's massively out of character and I'm angry that she went from writing the original Tron to this. Maybe on a day where I'm bored and have literally nothing else to read. :cautious:

- London and the Culture of Homosexuality, 1885 - 1914 by Matt Cook. Research. Like an over-worked cake, it's short and dense, but I'm hoping it'll have some useful info in it and that it won't be too difficult of a read.

"The Beast of Beacon" by Couer Al'Aran. It's an AU fanfic for RWBY where Adam comes to Beacon in order to spite Blake and prove her wrong. It's a deconstruction of a redemption arc, showcasing what he would have to do to get their trust and the consequences.

Titan Comics "Doctor Who: The Eight Doctor" is a fun set of stories that work as an introduction to the 8th doctor. It is written by George Mann and the interior art is by Emma Viecelli.

"Ghosts of the Future" is a Sonic the Hedgehog fancomic. It is written and drawn by Evan Stanley and co-written by Tom Campbell. It is co-drawn by Reggie Graham and posted on deviantart.com. It centers on Silver going on adventures with Sonic and Shadow while juggling a semi-normal life. It's pretty fun and it would be a good template for a Silver spinoff ;). Evan Stanley actually got hired by Archie to work on the actual Sonic comics so thats a plus.
