Re: Meet the Members!

Uh oh, an excuse to talk about myself..

- I have two younger sisters
- I enjoy cooking and have a lot of pro-equipment in my kitchen (before the kids I enjoyed getting up early, spend literally the whole day in the kitchen and serve a three-star dinner course in the evening).
- I hate baking, my success rate is around 50/50, I honestly don´t know what´s happening here.
- I like individual sports like running, swimming, hiking (we live close to the Alps) and rock climbing. But I´m not a sporty person, it´s all low level.
- I have a drivers license but can´t drive a car.
- I play the piano since I was 5 and also earned some money as piano teacher during uni.
- I adore Japanese aesthetics and have many books, prints and ceramics.

- My lacking ability to divorce myself from feelings has ruined my career (
- My personality type is ISFJ (according to the test page same as John Watson
- I nearly died after a routine-operation 3 years ago. It took countless blood bottles, an emergency OP and several days in ICU to get me out of the woods. The experience made me more relaxed and grateful towards life, but also tense and hypochondriac about everything illness- or hospital-related.
- I have many books on psychology and the human brain.
- Also on strange topics like (epi)genetics and physics
- I can recall tons of tiny unimportant information but fail to remember birthdays or relevant facts about history or current affairs - name of ministers? ??
 (although I studied politics as minor, ouch)

I could go on for a while but I guess that´s enough for now..

Re: Meet the Members!

DID I do this already on my intro???  Dunno, and I am too lazy to go back (at this point) to look.
I am a never married, older than Mrs. Hudson female who just lost her job last October and is still out of work.
I am an artist but that has had very little to do with my Profession and everything to do with my mindset.
My birthday is in mid-October.
I am and have always been a HUGE reader and can think of no greater good joy than that of reading a well written book. DOYLE is one of my favorite authors.
My mother sold World Book so she would hand me a volume to keep me occupied while she did ironing or sewing.  It was either that or the dictionary or the button box.
I fell in love with Sherlock Season 1 Episode !  I LOVE the BROMANCE!
My name Ravensmum is my attempt to Anglicize RAVENSMOM which along with Stealing The Moon has been my computer identity since day one.
I play the feadog and the bodhran both; poorly and unfortunately for my neighbors, loudly.
I barely speak English.  And waited until I was nearly fout to do any such thing other than ME2!
Youngest of three sisters.
A fan of anything Holmes, Steampunk, and Victorian, Edwardian...a huge fan of Star Trek (Trekest), Star Wars, Tolkein, Bradbury...Wilde
Waterhouse is MY favorite artist.
ALL MUSIC but with a real affection for JAZZ.  Blue school...

Re: Meet the Members!

I like this.

Hello! I'm can call me Pritt haha.
I'm a girl (some people can't tell from the name).
I'm 20.
From Ontario, Canada.
Born in August, I'm a Leo! (:
Studying neuroscience because I love learning how the brain works and also taking plenty of neuropsychology courses because I love learning about the way people behave and think and everything! People and people's brains interest me. I'm odd like that.
I speak English, French, Punjabi, a little bit of Hindi, and a little bit of Spanish.
Uhm, I'm 5'8 if that's of interest to anyone.
My favourite colour was yellow my entire life but recently turquoise has been added to the list.
I love dogs. Random? I know, but I do! I have a little puppy and he's so adorable...moving on.
I've played soccer for the past 12 years, I love reading (ever since I was a little girl), I love writing (fan-fictions specifically), and enjoy watching TV from time to time (usually on my laptop).
I actually have had fans of my own. I used to make video mixes of numerous couples from different shows and also edit images and write fan-fictions. I had a YT channel with over 1.2 million viewsa nd 1800 subscribers but it got terminated. I took a break from YT for a while but I recently went back and began making YT videos on Sherlock. The channel name is IPrittBI, I can't link it as it's only my third post here!
I get emotionally attached to things very easily and I'm extremely sensitive at times. I took three years of convincing from my family's end to donate my little girl clothes and toys.
Favourite Sherlock characters have to be Sherlock, Watson, and Lestrade.
Favourite episode by far was...well, I love every episode but 'A Study in Pink' is what pulled me in.
I haven't reallly been a Sherlock fan in the past but BBC's Sherlock just got me hooked. 
It's always been a dream of mine to visit England. I've only been there the airport for a couple hours because one of my flights landed there as a short stop.

I think I'm done for now!
No one really knows me here since I'm new. But when people get to know me you can refer back to this to know more about me! (:

Re: Meet the Members!

I'm a little bored so I'll do one more...

-My pulse is hard to find, even doctors seem to have trouble. People used to jokingly call me 'Phantom' because of that. I have submerged veins and I suppose that is the cause.
-I grew up in the tiniest house and yet it could rain one side and be sunny on the other
-I collect nail varnish
-I once created a language for a novel 
-I actually sing pretty well; but only when my throat is sore
-I cooked a meal for the first time at 22
-I used to be a punk chick with short spikey hair and long bangs. When little kids asked me if I was a boy or a girl I didn't mind. But since then I've always worn skirts
-I kept myself away from Sherlock for years as I could tell from the trailers that it would take over my life... I caved in in January and well. I was right.
-I haven't had my hair cut in 18 months.
-Sometimes I forget about eating meat or other proteins. I am considering going vegetarian to avoid health problems due to lack of protein in my diet.
-I always love dancing; you can't drag me off the dance floor when I go clubbing!
-People tell me I should become a nurse. I'm happy being a secretary. Because that's who I am

Re: Meet the Members!

Right. I'm new round here. I'll tell you all a little about myself, shall I?

- I don't really want to tell you all my name. It begins with an E. Feel free to call me E.
- My age is somewhere between 10 and 20.
- Like most people on this forum, I am a girl.
- I live in England. I'm a Yorkshire lass, actually. I like England. It's not too hot or too cold, and it doesn't rain here as much as some people think. It's not raining now, for example. Although it was raining this morning. And yesterday. And the day before that.(Ok. Maybe it does rain quite a bit here...)
- I love music. I play the Basson
(and the recorder, a bit, although I try to keep the recorder locked in a darkened room for the sake of my family and neighbours.) Despite Sherlock, I have no desire to learn the violin.
- I also like listening to music. I like the feeling, snow patrol, MIKA, Jessie J, and anything from a musical (Actually, not quite anything. But most things.) My favourite musicals are Wicked and the Lion King. I would also like to see Les Miserables, as I have not seen it yet live (I have seen the film though.)
- I enjoy climbing.
-I also like horses.
-Unlike most of the people on here it seems, I don't speak a multitude of languedges. I speak English. And a tiny bit of French (just what I've learned from school). My teachers have also attepted to teach me German, but we still havn't really got past the "Hello. My name is E. I have 21 brothers and 5.6 sisters, and play with unicorns in my spare time" stage yet.
- I have a massively sweet tooth. I am as we speak munching my way though M and M's at a worryingly rapid rate, and I love foamy banana's, chocolate and all forms of icing.
- I am good at mario kart.
- Aside from Sherlock and John, my favourite Sherlock character is Mycroft.
- My favourite episode is A scandal in Belgravia.
- I love reading. I cannot even begin to think about picking a favourite book. I'll read anything to be honest though.
- I am good at Maths. I hate Maths.
- I can be rude, lazy, and love being right.
- I almost never cry at films, TV or books. Even the Reichenbach fall failed to bring me to tears.
- I have loved Sherlock since the first of January, when a couple of friends told me to watch series three.

Sorry if I went on a bit!!! I do that sometimes!

Wearing my Sherlock coat makes me feel more confident and gives me a better self esteem.
I've worn a dog collar since I was fifteen and it makes me feel safe.
I have a lot of nervous bad habits that appear sometimes (see above point about The Empty Hearse).
I collect vinyl records.

Re: Meet the Members!

I´m coming here to introduce myself a little more:
I´m probably one of the oldest members here, in my very late forties and I have been a devoted fangirl for almost a decade now.
My first serious fandom had been the Brokeback Mountain fandom and I had been a big fan of Heath Ledger and truly shocked and even in grief, when he died.
I really love music and dancing and have been taking jazz dance, musical dance and tap dance lessons for  a very long time. I go to concerts, musicals and the ballett on a regular basis, my favourrite musician is another extremely talented Brit named Jamie Cullum and my all time favourite band is Simply Red.
Besides Sherlock I like a lot of the danish tv series like Kommissarin Lund, Borgen oder Die Brücke, that´s why I already knew Lars Mikkelsen and I found him excellent in every role I have seen him so far.
And if I have learned one thing from the awful death of Heath Ledger, it´s that as a fangirl you should grab every opportunity to see your favourite actor/musican etc. live, because you never know if there will be another. And that´s why I spontaneously ordered 2 tickets yesterday for Martin´s Richard III London in September and am really looking forward to this performance.

And I hugely ship Johnlock in fanfiction, but not in the actual show, I think I like their nonsexual love, friendship and affection better than the idea of a gay romance. One of my favourite fanfiction stories is Performance in a leading role and the sequel Lifetime achievement by Madlori, an author I already knew from the Brokeback Mountain fandom and who´s stories are equally excellent no matter what fadom she writes in.

Re: Meet the Members!

...Jamie Cullum! Perfect! Last november I saw him live for the first time, and it was without a doubt one of the best concerts I've ever been to in my life. Great musician, great entertainer... I had goosebumps again and again because it was so amazing.

Re: Meet the Members!

Hey, another Jamie Cullum fan, how great!!
We saw Jamie live last year in Schwetzingen, Leverkusen and Frankfurt and then again this march in Mannheim and we´re going to see him again in August in Bochum. He´s so fantastic live, such an outstanding musician and every concert is different. He never uses a setlist, he always plays what he´s in the mood for and his improvisations are always new and fresh. And he is really nice, funny and modest and you can always feel how much fun he´s having on stage.

Re: Meet the Members!

Hi, I'm Arwendë, also known as Ríona. New member here and dedicated Sherlockian for nearly two years
-I'm from Spain
-I'm a physicist, currently working on my final master's project in Astrophysics (a Sherlockian astronomer, isn't that ironic :D)
-Apart from being a huge Sherlockian, my other fandoms are Harry Potter, Tolkien, Doctor Who, Avengers, Star Trek (reboot), Hunger Games, Tintin, Astérix, Brave and Frozen, Maleficent, and a bit of Game of Thrones and Star Wars.
-I'm a cosplayer, and love collecting fandom merchandising. A huge geek and nerd, overall
-I have dark auburn mid-thigh length hair, nearing knee, and amber-hazel eyes. I love everything about natural haircare and hairstyles.
-I am a feminist and an egalitarian, and an activist at heart. I hate everything about sexism, racism, homophobia, classism and injustice in general.
-I'm an INFJ
-I take sword-fighting classes (the 17th Century Spanish rapier, I'd like to learn the medieval longsword asap as well) and have done some archery courses. I also like yoga and any kind of martial arts. I love the model of the empowered warrior-woman and love researching about female warriors in history and fiction.
-I love reading.
-I paint and draw, and paint miniatures. I favour fanart, landscapes and horses. Not enough spare time to draw and learn as much as I'd like, though.
-I play the piano, the transverse flute and sing at a local academy. I also play the tin-whistle and the Celtic harp (self-taught, still much to learn).
-Favourite music includes traditional Celtic music, Wim Mertens, soundtrack, classical music and symphonic metal.
-I love everything Celtic, and love researching about Celtic culture.
-I identify as an agnostic and am drawn towards neodruidic spiritualism. 
-I love learning ancient, obscure and imaginary languages, such as Irish and other Celtic languages, Latin, Sanskrit and Tolkien's Quenya. I also like translating.
-My favourite colours are red (bright red and burgundy), green (sea-green, peridot, sage), blue (cobalt, navy, flax), purple (obviously!), amber, black, copper and bronze.
-Since becoming a Sherlockian, I've found that in many things I really identify with Sherlock. Benedict Cumberbatch and the great character that's Sherlock aside, that may be why he's my favourite in the series. I may not have his deductive prowess, Mind Palace or high cheekbones (pity xD), but we're both introverts scientists with a taste for adventure and a similar clothing style, called 'weirdos' by some people for being 'different'.
