"Unfortunately my interest in Sherlock has really waned after the airing of s3 and the effect it had on fandom." Effect on fandom? What do you mean?

Series 3 was very polarizing to the fandom; a lot of people - myself included - were not satisfied with series 3, and it has led to differing opinions and lots of discussion, not all of it civil. I think it’s great that people are criticizing media, and meta is fascinating to me; however, I quickly became exhausted by the volume of meta, and the near-constant flow of arguing on my dash. Not all of it was mean-spirited or vicious, but enough of it was. To me, the Sherlock fandom has changed in tone quite a bit from when I joined. It’s no longer very fun for me. I’m no longer really interested in it. I think a good amount of the change in tone is due to series 3, compared with the break between series 2 and 3, which I experienced when I first joined fandom and up through last December.

Not everyone may feel this way, but I know some do - enough that we’ve seen artists and writers leave the fandom, both because of the content of series 3, and the tone of the fandom. That’s really sad to me to. TL; DR: the landscape and tone of fandom is different to me than it once was, in a way that I no longer enjoy.

Hey! sorry for the bother, I'm 'currently' following your ff 'and the sea so deep' and I wanted to tell you that it's wonderful! Will we be able to read more of it soon? :)

Thank you so much! I’m glad you’re enjoying it so far! :)

Unfortunately my interest in Sherlock has really waned after the airing of s3 and the effect it had on fandom. I’ve been working on the next chapter here and there, but not only is it a monster chapter, but I’m rewriting a large part of the ending! (Well, I finally figured out how it will end - s3 didn’t change any of my plans for any of the characters, no worries there.) I’ve been considering doing NaNoWriMo again this year to hammer out the ending, since I think there is at least 20k left in the story to tell - so maybe that will work for me in terms of being able to finish.

The long story short is, I would love to finish this story, but for various reasons (life being busy and disinterest, etc.) I haven’t worked on it much. I wouldn’t count on “soon” for the next update - but I would like to get the next chapter out before Christmas. If I do go the route of working on it for NaNoWriMo, I will be posting daily snippits of my work as I did last year - so keep an eye on my blog! We’ll see what happens. I have every intention of finishing and the sea so deep :)

Today marks four years of dating with boyfriend!

I remember him asking me out like it was yesterday - but four years! It felt short and long at the same time. I can’t wait to see what this fifth year brings us! :)
