That which hath gone before | That which followeth

Another SSHG Exchange must-read

The gift for Annie Talbot, which was posted before Christmas, is an absolute tour-de-force. It's called "Worlds Enough, and Time" and can be found here: http://sshg-exchange.livejournal.com/301445.html

Even if you are usually put off by the idea of crossovers, don't let that be a barrier to you reading this. It's a hugely clever, witty, wise, joyful, and occasionally laugh-out-loud meta reflection on the nature of stories and their importance. It's also a universe-hopping romance, and I wish I could squee more about it, but I can't do that without spoiling all the delicious surprises and jokes.

Just go and read it - it's delightful. And don't forget to leave some love.

Isn't it wonderful? I re-read it this past weekend and found even more in-jokes and sly references.

I bet you did!

That is one of my favorites, too.

*bounces* And it's not even mine! I'm just happy that the author wrote it.

It's fan-bloody-tastic, isn't it? And devilishly clever to boot. And it introduced me to the "Cabin Pressure" universe -- already ordered the CDs from amazon :-)

You are at the top of a long, slippery slope, my friend. Very soon, you will be playing "Yellow Car" with the rest of us.

But it's a slippery slope at the bottom of which there is Benedict Cumberbatch, so resistance is completely futile. Plus, I get a bonus for practically-saintlihood, because I'll make copies for both Janine and my brother (the latter, being a pilot, ought to enjoy it a lot).

I loved it, and I also think to have guessed who is the wonderful MA...

Have you? Who?

I'm sending a PM to say that ;)

*claps from her side of the pond*

I loved recognizing the majority of the characters and feeling rather proud on being able to imagine most of them. I'm not familiar with "Cabin Pressure" but after looking it up on wikipedia, I wondered if I missed any reference of Martin and Sherlock looking at each other and wondering how the other might have looked familiar since they are portrayed by the same actor.

Cabin Pressure is wonderful - and the new series just started! You'll be able to listen to ep. 1 on the BBC iplayer until next Wednesday.
