Vid Rec: Rubiks Cube

May. 19th, 2017 12:58 pm
[personal profile] rachelindeed posting in [community profile] 221b_recs
Title: BBC Sherlock - Rubiks Cube
Music Title & Artist: "Rubik's Cube" by Athlete
Vidder: Loony Lovegood
Pairing or Character: Sherlock/John
Verse: Sherlock BBC
Link: This is a YouTube link: Rubiks Cube vid

Reccer's Comments: This vid kind of leaves me speechless. The song is so painfully perfect, the sound of it a gentle mix of hope and melancholy.  The vidder has found images and visual parallels that really touch my heart. The vid builds up to the Reichenbach climax with all the emotional weight the story deserves. This is a vid about both Sherlock and John chasing the solutions to their cases while a more important mystery builds silently between the two of them. They each search their own feelings, trying to understand themselves, but they run out of time before they get to share any sort of answer.

It's a beautiful, beautiful summation of the first two series of this show, and only has about 50 views! I hope you will give this vid a try, it deserves more attention and I believe you won't regret it.

Excerpt of the song's lyrics:

The world is too heavy
Too big for my shoulders
Come take this weight off me now

Thousands of answers
To one simple question
Come take this weight off me now

Oh I'm like a kid who just won't let it go
Twisting and turning the colors in rows
I'm so intent to find out what it is
This is my Rubik's cube
I know I will figure it out.

Title: Untitled (Sherlock Holmes)
Artist: erisians 
Pairing: None
Rating: G
Warnings: None
Verse: Sherlock BBC

Reccer's comments: This is a quite striking portrait of Sherlock Holmes that has become one of my favorite pieces of fanart. I love how the artist's use of color and oil paint technique (the tags say this is digital/photoshop) give the art great depth and detail and perfectly capture the character. Sherlock's intensity comes shining through and I find it hard to look away.

Here's their fanart tag for more amazing work (in Sherlock and other fandoms).

Fic Rec: Heirs and Assigns

[personal profile] write_out posting in [community profile] 221b_recs
Title: Heirs and Assigns
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] splix
Pairing: Gen
Length: 2541
Rating: Teen
Warnings: Major Character Death
Verse: Sherlock BBC
Author's summary: Uncle Rudy sits Mycroft down for tea and a chat.

Reccer's comments:

Uncle Rudy reached out with one blunt finger and pressed it against Mycroft's chest. "About Eurus - guard your heart and soul. Do what you must to protect yourself and Sherlock."

This brilliant story not only gives us a quite plausible backstory on how the secret of Eurus comes to be Mycroft's responsibility, but it also gifts us with a deeply moving look at young Mycroft and his relationship with his beloved Uncle Rudy. Eurus might spend most of the story off screen, but her chilling presence is felt throughout and we learn just how frightening she truly is. Uncle Rudy is brought to magnificent life here as he prepares a young Mycroft for what lies ahead; the love and respect between them is both incredibly touching and ultimately heartbreaking in light of all that awaits them.

SPOILER: Just to reassure anyone who might need it before diving into this story, the character death is not Mycroft's.
