The Return of Sherlock Holmes

WARNING: This post contains possible spoilers for BBC season 3 of Sherlock. (Pesky things aren’t they, these spoilers?)

For those of you, who watch and love the BBC series, Sherlock, will know how unbelievably excited I am that we’re finally getting some trailers/spoilers for the upcoming season.

For those of you, who have no idea what BBC Sherlock even is, I have one word: CUMBERBATCH!

But, seriously, this show is an EPIC must-watch…I resisted watching it as well, but about 10 minutes into the first episode, I was a goner. I kept watching to see what would happen and how Sherlock would possibly solve this mystery – and yeah, my MIND WAS BLOWN!

This was pretty much my expression and those people in the background are my confused family members…

Sherlock (Cumberbatch) imitating me! 😀

That was also my expression when I saw the new BBC Sherlock season 3 teaser trailer:

You’d have to, of course, have seen the last episode of season 2 to understand why this short, seeming inconspicuous trailer was actually…not.

But it was still short…

So I naturally had to hunt down more Sherlock spoilers and opened myself up to what Google had to offer and found out that, contrary to what I originally believed, Andrew Scott would NOT be returning as Moriarty in season 3:

So who’s going to be Sherlock’s new nemesis?

Well, it’s going to be Charles Augustus Magnussen, the King of Blackmailers, played by Lars Mikkelsen.

Finally, we know that the first episode of season 3, “The Empty Hearse,” will focus on the impact of events from season 2’s conclusion on Watson.

Got spoilers? I’d love to hear them – no, really, gimme!

Dagger of the Sun: New Teaser (Delphyne)

It’s Friday!!!

Personally, I’m looking forward to sleeping on Saturday – university forces me to wake up way to early the rest of the week. 😦

To celebrate the awesomeness of Friday and the end of the week – a very BUSY week at that – I thought I would post a teaser from Dagger of the Sun (DOTS). I like posting teasers, because it forces me to edit my writing, which I don’t always want to do. I am a very lazy person, as most of you probably know after reading a previous post, so getting down to editing something takes a lot of effort for me.

Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE writing! But the first draft is always the best for me – it’s when I get to discover the nuances of the story for the first time. The journey is fresh and new and I want to finish just so I know how everything ends. I like the part of the editing process that allows me to rejuggle the story, but I hate the part about grammer/spelling – mostly because I’m awful at these aspects.

But, now, without further ado – THE TEASER!

Taking advantage of her temporarily stunned state, her captor aimed another kick to her sword hand, crushing her fingers until she was forced to drop her sword. Delphyne felt a hand clamp over her mouth and nose, preventing any hope of breathing. 

In less than second, Delphyne knew she would be unconscious and defenseless. Survival instincts kicking in, she aimed her knee high between her captor’s legs – swinging hard enough that it should have brought whoever had manhandled her to their knees in screaming agony.

Only it didn’t.

I always look forward to reader predictions…so go ahead and speculate about what you think is going to happen in the comments!
