Maybe you should ask Ms. Faust about it.

By which I mean Lauren, not a reference to this guy.

It's called a Periphery Demographic, and one she's aware of. And yes, while there is an... unsavory portion of the fandom, as there is with anything that has a fandom, there is also a portion that is not, and just enjoys it innocently.

Personally, I have yet to watch any of it, but I know a number of people who do. If I ever do, it'll probably be on DVD or whatever commercially-produced storage medium we'll be using in the future.

I've never seen anyone that excited about jam since Dr. Watson.

Ah man, I love Kate Beaton's comics that reference literature.

I got into an argument--or as much of an argument as you can have with a person who doesn't listen to others' ideas--with a professor about her conception of Watson. She viewed him as a sort of everyman (an unexceptional and essentially conservative figure) who is able to comfortably introduce the reader to the eccentric and unconventional Holmes. My opinion was that when we first meet Watson in A Study in Scarlet he is marginal figure in society, being that he is left physically and obviously somewhat emotionally and psychologically damaged by his military service and is socially isolated. He doesn't talk his former friends or family and is only introduced to Holmes because he desperately attaches himself to a former acquaintance whom he barely knows that he happens to see in the street. Gah, I have food to eat. Anyway, Kate Beaton agrees with me, even if that professor didn't.

EDIT: I didn't finish my thought well. I think that in the text of the Sherlock Holmes stories themselves there's enough evidence to make the case that Watson is extraordinary because he operates outside societal norms, not always at the behest of Holmes, and is intelligent and interesting. Let us not overlook him.

Okay, so I semi-recently got the first DVD, along with the first set of A Little Snow Fairy Sugar. ("Little" in both titles; the winged characters have a measure of weather control... interesting.) It's fairly enjoyable. I kinda wish the DVD had the first five episodes (counting the first two-parter as two) instead of the first two, one from near the end of the first season, and two from about the middle of the second season, because I'm kind of orderly that way. Apparently, whoever made that decision is not. I don't know how much of a difference it makes, but...

Oh, and I've been reading the transcripts and episode summaries on the wiki. But what clinched my classification -- at least for one person -- is that I read "Rarity" for "Ratty" whilst reading episode descriptions for the stop-motion series The Wind in the Willows.

Herein, Gregor analyzes the swag-to-purchase ratio of welovefine.com. This ratio appears to be 2:1.

I would just like to point out how criminally neglected the word "Swag" is in modern times

That and "Wastrel" too

It is? I see it around all the time (There are, however, not nearly enough bags with that written on it...)


Now, with wastrel I'll have to agree. :P

There's a GIANT liquor store out here called AppleJacks, so I'll have to agree by default or some other nonsense since I cannot think of the word I actually wanted to use there.
