Re: Meet the Members!

Hey everyone!
I'm Theresa, a 16-year-old Austrian (NOT Australia)
I love books, movies, TV-shows, video games and fangirling (obviously)
I play the piano and I love singing and drawing.
I've been a Sherlockian since three years and just decided today that I could finally go to a Sherlock forum http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

I am heavily obsessed with Ben Cumberbatch (also quite obvious), Tom Hiddleston, Luke Evans and Lee Pace.
Well, that was it I think.
cu! http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/tongue.png


Alone is what I have. Alone protects me.

Re: Meet the Members!

I don't like talking about myself much but it was so interesting to read about you all so I'll do it anyway.
I'm not 30 yet but already afraid of it (laugh at me).
I don't have siblings but think it must be great.
I love drinking whisky but chose the name for the little terrier in Hounds.
I'm a student but don't like university at all because of the many people.
My favourite music genre is Hard Rock and Heavy Metal, also scottish folk.
I totally love Scottish country dance and hope my knees will allow me to do it till I fall into my coffin one day.
I don't like temperatures above 25°C, my favourite time of year is fall. My birthday is also in fall, lucky me.
I would like to have a cat.
I'm homesick for the UK although I only lived there for a short time. I adore London and visit as often as I can.
I play the guitar, and I like singing. I would like to play pipes.
I don't like pastel colours, only very bright strong colours.
I love sewing clothes. Tried my first dress, it needs improvement :D
I love decorating and change the look of my room every few months.
My first fandoms were Harry Potter and Star Wars, followed by Lord of the Rings, then I was very bored for a few years until Sherlock happened.
I'm Johnlock-friendly, but generally not a shipper of anything.
I'm a fan of the outlander series by Diana Gabaldon.
I love backpacking and sleeping in my tent. To be outdoors makes me insanely happy.
I sometimes dream in english.
I don't like it when people leave the cinema without watching the credits.
I don't like being single so I wish it would change soon.
I've learned some finnish many years ago, I adore the language, the sound is wonderful.
I love photography and acryl painting.
Until one gets to know me better, I seem to be a very quiet person (which I'm really not).
I don't like landscapes without mountains, woods or the sea (yeah, and guess in what kind of place I live...)
I love theatre.
I don't have a smart phone and don't intend to get one.
I prefer walking to any other way of getting somewhere.
Big cities amaze me.
I don't like the south much, I always travel north, I don't know why.
I'm shy with new people.
I colour my hair because I don't like being blond.
Biscuits are an easy way to convince me to do things.
I love tidying up and my room is never messy but I'm no organized person.
I like tending to plants.
I have been a vegetarian for nearly all my life.
I have a little dragon as cuddly toy which is named after a scottish cave.

Re: Meet the Members!

What's your dragon's name? The credits at the film thing...I so agree with you on that! Love mountains and forests too but unfortunately live in quite a flat area.

My little dragon is called Smoo :-) The cave is in the north, close to Cape Wrath.

I just don't understand why people don't want to acknowledge the peope who brought a film to them. They just enjoy the film, and don't care about the effort in making it, and the people putting so much time and work into it. I don't want to offend anyone, but to me it feels ignorant. Also they will never discover the little extras hidden in the credits :-) I love films which have little extras in the credits, or that have beautiful and artistic credits (e.g. Harry Potter).

Re: Meet the Members!

I have to agree with you about the credits, I usually go to the cinema with my best friend who can't get out of there soon enough... (it seems to be because of her mental illness)... 


...

Apparently one of my co-workers doesn't trust me because she found out that the table that holds my TV is decorated with a skull, Hello Kitty figurines, a 'weird blue box thing' and a 'weird looking pen' and a magnifyer... 

Sums me up pretty well...

I love the fun little credit 'treats' some movies are known to do!  I went with my mom to several Marvel films, and each time she was giving a glance like 'aren't we leaving?'.  Uh, no.  End credits!  (and then sometimes feel silly because the scene would make no sense to someone not a fan or familiar). 

Hee… and they're wary of you now?  I would see all that stuff together and instantly think 'Oooo!  Whose is this?!?'

Hey All. A nice platform for us to know each other! http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png


Harshal Shetty, from India. Friends address me as "Shal".
I turned 20 on 09.04.2015. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

Recently completed the three Sherlock seasons, so highly "Benedicted" http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/cute.png

I love Painting and reading! Oh, Books are everything for me!
Not a huge collection though, just 55 of them!
I am a less socialising person, and do not have many friends! (But I believe in the relation with these lesser friends and not in their number)
I can't talk much about myself, like, you know, the good qualities in me, but I am a bit sensitive! I know that!

Hope to have an amazing discussion with everyone, and know each other well!!

We ought to know each other, as this is a group with a common factor of Love for Sherlock!!! http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/love.png
   
 


Think! It's the new sexy!

Re: Meet the Members!

Some more information about myself:
In the early 2000s I studied theology and got a diploma from my university. Worked at university for several years, but then the contract was running out, so I decided last year to study again: I want to become a teacher and to teach religious education and German. My studies will go on for a number of years.
In my freetime I love reading books, esp. fantasy and historical: I assume that there are more than 250 books in my house to be read ...
I also love listening to music (pagan folk and "Middle Ages" folk, a typical genre from Germany), and dancing: I've been training ATS (American Tribal Style, it has its origins in bellydance) for several years now and it's something I definately NEED!
I've also got a pet: a black cat named Neville (Harry Potter Fan!!)

Any questions? Don't be shy and ask!

Re: Meet the Members!

Another one from Germany. Hiiii...
I'm lurking here for a while already.
Into Sherlock since Christmas 14 when all seasons were aired during one weekend and I immediately bought the series online because I coulnd't bear to wait for a DVDs being shipped.
Not a shipper though. Almost 50 in the papers. Inside - maybe 16.

Welcome, JP and have good fun. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

I cannot live without brainwork. What else is there to live for? Stand at the window there. Was there ever such a dreary, dismal, unprofitable world? See how the yellow fog swirls down the street and drifts across the dun-coloured houses. What could be more hopelessly prosaic and material? What is the use of having powers, Doctor, when one has no field upon which to exert them?

Re: Meet the Members!

Heeeyyy, my name is Mr. O'Leary (well, not my real name. Don't know if anyone here knows pjo/Percy Jackson. ) , I'm a 15-20 year-old austrian fanboy and addicted to Sherlock (well, not only to him, but to the tv series). My real name starts with F.
I just love reading (and watching movies or tv series, obviously), books are my life!!!
I play a few instruments(violin, piano...) and love music (kind of rock???, I guess, but soundtrack too. My probably favourite band is Fall Out Boy, and my actually favourite song is Who we are - ImagineDragons).
Although the entire series is amazing, one of my favourite scene is the SHERLOCKED scene at the "end" of "A Scandal in Belgravia".
I spend too much time being in kinda multifandom and too little in learning...
Well, and I guess I'm shipping a bit too much(I'm really supporting johnlock!!!)

Re: Meet the Members!

Well, I’m a member of this forum for quite some time now, but I just thought I could try this out…

I got married last year but Hubby and I are in a relationship for almost 15 years now.
I love going to music festivals and usual visit at least one every year.
I love going to the cinema, I wish I would have more time for that.
I like to be creative - crafting, painting, my latest passion is sewing.
The biggest goal I want to achieve one day in my life is writing and publishing a novel.
I have two wonderful Birman cats named Leila and Balu.http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/love.png

My first fandom, I was really devoted to was Star Trek.
I was born and raised in a small town, but I prefer living in a metropolis.
I quitted smoking four years ago.
I like the sea and don't like the mountains – well, I don't like going uphill.http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

I like summer and detest winter.
I‘m a crisps addict - a can ration a bar of chocolate, but no chance with a bag of crisps.http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/shocked.png

My favourite (non-alcoholic) drinks are sparkling water and coke light, my favourite (alcoholic) drinks are beer and Gin Tonic.

Before Sherlock I never saw any Sherlock Holmes adaptation (aside from the holodeck Star Trek once in TNG).
I’m not a sporty person, I have to constrain myself to do at least a bit sports every now and then.
I have short brown hair.
When I was a child I almost never wore skirts or dresses. Today I almost always wear those
I don't have many close friends but those few mean a lot to me.
I’m not a people person, I hate small talk and feel very uncomfortable in a group of people I don't know.
I hate injustice and prejudices and I see myself as a pacifist.
