Welcome!

Hello Sherlock loving masses.

It's a brand new year. The UK has already seen Season 2 of Sherlock. In February the region-free dvds people ordered will arrive. Then in May, the US will finally get to see Season 2. What does this mean? It means that fandom has a lot of new material to work with and explore! We hope that you will do that here with us at dconsherlock.

This past year at the Atlanta, GA based conference Dragon*con 2011, Taylor (orpheusetude and a member of the podcast Bakerstreet Babes) worked a Sherlock themed panel and was blown away not only by the sheer number of Sherlock fans who turned up but by the amazing awesomeness of the conversation, which according to our co-mod aylathebunny went on for hours following the panel [Ayla: It went until at least 4am]. Audio of the 2011 panel can be found at bakerstreetbabes.blogspot.com

This community aims to serve as a way of keeping in touch for the many Sherlock fans who met at Dragon*con and hopes to encourage an even bigger turn out this year. We hope to have a Sherlock centric pre-con dinner this year and are also looking to do group cosplay amongst other things.

We encourage anyone who was at Dragon*Con 2011 to join up, introduce themselves, and post pictures (behind an lj cut please) of the panels themselves as well as the costumes.

If you weren't able to be a part of the fun at Dragon*Con 2011, feel free to join up, introduce yourself, plan for this year and just generally bask in the awesomeness of Sherlock fandom.

Now on to introductions! Below you will find a helpful list of intro questions; fill them out, post them in a new entry to the comm, and witness as your friends list grows. :)

The Meet-Up Location: 5th Floor of the Hilton

May. 21st, 2014

Hey, not sure if anyone watches this space now, but my usual Dragon*Con group fell through and I was wondering if anyone had room space available? Can, of course, help pay for the room. And does anyone have suggestions for good places to park a car? Can't afford a flight, and I'm only coming down from KY.

Dragon*Con 2013 is quickly approaching...

Sherlock Meet-up & Photoshoot Dragon*Con 2013

Because there wasn't one and now there is one.

I'm organizing a general meet-up + photoshoot for all fans of Sherlock. Not just the BBC version, but everrrrything.

This is a work in progress, but because of how close the con is, we'll really need to rush to get a time and place finalized and out there to everyone. Or else the meet-up will consist of me and maybe one or two of you reading this...

This is a meet-up for fans and though costuming is encouraged, it's certainly not required. For those that do come dressed-up, we should probably take lots of fun and silly photos while everyone is there. If anyone would like to volunteer to play photographer, please respond, but if not I'm sure there will be cameras there.

Looking at the Dragon*Con PDF I'm seeing there are two Sherlock related panels this year we could have based a meet-up around. One is on Monday at 1:00pm and the other on Friday at 4:00pm a the Sheraton. I think we can mostly agree the Monday time is horrible to base a meet-up around either before or after. A lot of people are packing it in on Monday and it's just THE. WORST. DAY. AND. TIME. EVER. And the Sheraton Macon room is not near any good meet-up locations that I'm aware of. I was tempted to say the Sheraton pool for atmospheric reasons, but I've heard from numerous people that it's open unreliably which was extremely soul crushing.

So...

..ditching the idea of it being before/after a panel... I'm thinking Saturday at 5:00pm at the Marriott 10th floor Skyline. I have cross referenced this date and time with other meet-ups and there are no conflicting use of this space that anyone has reported.

Any thoughts? Ideas? Fun things we can do?

PLEASE POST HERE TO KEEP THE DISCUSSION IN ONE PLACE FOR NOW - THANK YOU :)


The sooner everything can be finalized the sooner I can get us listed on the Daily Dragon and on the Dragon*Con Photoshoot schedule.

It's almost time...

I wasn't at the con last year, but I did see there was an after panel meet-up/photoshoot. I'll be there this year and I was hoping something similar was happening. If not, maybe we should organize something? Only 17 more days!

Another year, and time for another D*Con. Who all will be there this year? :)

Shock Blanket Pick Up: Take 2

Wicked0witch, doctorwotwot, mamabone, zed_pm, and charlestongal:

I am currently in the 3rd floor lounge in the Sheraton. I will be there until 6:30pm and then I'm going to be on the move again. You can email me at accioayla at gmail dot com to meet up with me tonight. Look for the red head with the Iron Man and Captain America earrings.

If you do not pick up your blankets today, I will be refunding your money and selling them to the people on a list created at the meet up tomorrow morning. I am not taking these blankets home.

Possible Second Shock Blanket Order

Hey there!

So yeah, there was a lot more interest in the shock blankets at the meet up yesterday so I'm considering doing a second order of shock blankets. Who all (besides the people I have the information for from yesterday on the small list of people that would like a blanket) would be interested in this?

Let me know!
I would like to thank everyone for coming to the APPPT! It was such a blast! I want to welcome everyone that is going to find this community now, and make sure to spread the word about it so everyone can find it. Without you all, yesterday wouldn't have been the success it was.

Love you all!
