Hello, first day of the semester. Why are you already being mean to me? I've loved you and petted you and done everything exactly the right way. Yet my inbox has 63
messages complaining that they can't access their classes yet, the earliest dating from 6PM last night. Enrollment gets started at 8AM the day classes begin and finishes around 10AM. There are biiiiig signs posted all over the website about this. Why for do people not read? It's especially annoying in the teachers, all of whom seem to swear blue that last
semester their courses were available to students early. Trust me. They weren't. I know, because I handle enrollment, and I never
do it early, not for love nor money.
On the other hand, I've had a few very sweet people calling with actual problems that don't stem from reading fail. It's nice when callers are polite and understanding. Also, I have dark chocolate covered pomegranates
OMG THERE ARE NO WORDS FOR THE JOY THIS BRINGS. OMNOMNOMNOM.
This is what I call comfort food.
Now! A short meme!( Inside the Tin )
Okay, thanks to fandomsecrets
, I read this
. And you know what I want now?
I want an epic crossover. EPIC.
Somehow, The Avengers (meaning at least Tony, preferably plus Steve and a few others) end up universe/time bouncing and land smack dab in the middle of London, specifically somewhere that will bring them to the attention of a certain detective who lives at 221 Baker. Time bouncing would be preferable, because how amazing would that be, that Holmes was pre-modern Marvel? ANYWAY. There needs to be a "Dear God, he could be your twin!" moment with Tony and Sherlock and amusing stereo one-line responses from both of the aforementioned. ("Nonsense, he looks nothing like me.") And Hijinxs, of course, must ensue. Strangely, I envision this as a Holmes fic with Avengers characters, because the Great Mystery of how these peculiar people arrived in London and, more importantly, how to make them go away again before that Stark fellow causes any more difficulties would be amazing
. Watson and Steve, I imagine, would bond over certain shared troubles.
Why yes, I did see the movie. How did you guess? Fortunately, I think this is going to be a "sit back and read the shinies other people produce" fandom, because I'm not particularly Holmsian, and mysteries are something I prefer in small doses. The thought of actually writing
one makes me crinkle my nose.
