Yes, there is a reason why I frequent this forum. It is rife with intelligent, logical people, who share an intense interest in Sherlock. I have little tolerance for most people that I come by through location/circumstance, but a certain type of person is attracted to the forum.

Back on topic: I don't know anyone who has seen Sherlock in real life, unfortunately...except someone who I persuaded to watch the show, but he doesn't take a serious interest in it. I watched A Study in Pink with him because he didn't understand what was going on and I had to explain at times.

I voted yes, but it is dependent on the circumstances. I love the show itself- the script, the camerawork, everything. As others said, if, from the beginning Sherlock was not Benedict, I would still develop the same interest. However, I would be disappointed if he was replaced with another actor now, simply because I enjoy his portrayal, how well he and Martin Freeman work together, and I am already accustomed to it. If the actor was talented and fitting for the role, I would be satisfied, yet slightly disappointed until I watched a few episodes/ became used to the new actor as Sherlock.

I stated that I was going to work on Sherlock art while I was gone, but the time flew and I hardly got around to it. Instead, I did a little sketch of Sherlock when he was holding his violin:

It's mediocre and I didn't bother to change the settings on my camera so that it does no't appear blue, but I thought I would share. I want to do a large, finished fan art when I have more time.

Can you tell that I dislike sketching hair? Particularly curly hair. It's so tedious. Benedict's face is fun to draw because of his bone structure.

Also, I am still perfecting an extended version of Irene's theme. It will all be done much faster, as soon as I finish academic work that is due shortly.

Not that anybody missed/will miss this lurker, but my power was unexpectedly out for several days. I am back, but I am leaving tomorrow for a week to a place where there is no service- no internet, television, cell phones, etc. However, I may be able to bribe someone into driving me to a wi-fi spot at some point.

Bah. I just realized that this shall also interrupt watching Sherlock again...I will simply make up for it when I return! Plus, I can bring my art supplies and do some fanart, which I was already planning, and work on a version of Irene's theme on the violin. I play by ear, but I still need to improve my speed and fluidity with the song.

Ah, so the zombie resurrection was successful!

A side effect of the violin/viola playing seems to be meal-skipping. I'll do a crazy 3 hour practice session and wind up skipping lunch. By the time I realize I've missed noon entirely it's just not worth it...

Very true. I tend to forget breakfast and lunch, played for six hours the other day, and missed dinner as well. Do you have a regular meal schedule? It would benefit you to have a snack handy to snatch up when necessary at odd times of the day.

Warning: watching it the second time is very different. That said, welcome to the forum.

How so? Now I am curious. I plan to begin re-watching today.

Not old enough to buy a cigarette patch.
Chronic insomniac and short sleeper. Asexual. Labels...aren't they meaningless words?
I have Benedict-Sherlock eyes and hair, although I'm not nearly as attractive.
Posting info online is dangerous, but a little common sense goes a long way.
Violinist. Music tastes vary as wildly as everything else.
Mind of a scientist.
I go through obsessions. There is little to tell.
It's easy to be curious with anonymity, but you're statistically unlikely to approach (let alone like) me in real life.

...that was a bit disjointed. Oops. I'm not a summarizer.

Sherlock- Thank you. I noticed that thread, and I intend to post there at some point. : )

Thank you, Milkomeda. I appreciate your signature.I made an offhand Schrödinger's cat joke not long ago, but the comedic effect was sadly lost on them, hah.

Thank you for the link. I am determined to visit London sometime in the future (perhaps when I am old enough and can scrounge up the money,) and 221b Baker Street will be the first site on my list.

Thank you for the welcomes.

Hah, nice logic, Hepzibah.

Sherlockskitty- agreed; some is fine, if one uses common sense and caution. I don't have a facebook or similar site account, and I am unused to leaving lurkdom (the word is certainly being added to my dictionary,) but I am sure I'll become more accustomed to this eventually.

I will enjoy posting here greatly. I am about to rewatch Sherlock- the first time, I allowed myself to be dazzled by its brilliance without thinking too much, so I probably missed some of it. I believe Sherlock is something that will get better each time I watch it again.

Not in general- just mine.

I only intended to post once or twice; I'm a lurker. However, as a new addition to the BBC Sherlock fan forum (and BBC Sherlock itself) whose interest is only catching fire rather than waning, I will likely be here to stay, thus, a greeting is in order. 

All of the members here appear very intelligent and friendly, and it is a pleasure to meet everyone! Virtual coffee or tea? -raises pot.-

I considered posting some biographical statements, as is customary for an introduction, but I'm not particularly interesting. Perhaps another time?

Thank you, Kazza!

What does the acronym H.O.U.N.D. stand for?
Difficulty: easy/hard. Easy with research, but I recommend drawing from memory for a challenge.

I possess a few of these qualities: violin playing, caffeine-loading, meal-skipping, science-obsessed, asexual, martial artist and chronic insomniac. Beware, the social aspect is an inevitable result. (I was essentially friendless, until a Watson came along and attached himself to me, undeterred.)

Hah, Mycrofting...brilliant. Although I doubt one could maintain this as a lifestyle change through sheer determination, so there is little to worry about.

I apologize for resurrecting this thread. Hopefully there is not a rule against zombie threads.

We lurkers can rarely be persuaded to crawl out of our hidey-hole.
Now I shall retreat.
