Randomness  
Someone needs to tell my Bond to stop sounding like my Sherlock. He's not listening to me.

Also, watched the first 'act' of the Les Miz movie tonight, finally. It's awesome! Though they've cut lyrics out here and there, so I feel a little like I'm watching the story in fast forward. And I just really want to tell some of the cast that they're actually doing very well, and don't have to be afraid to sing.

I had my theatre face on, though. It looks like this: :-o

Act two tomorrow, not enough time tonight.

Oh! And Mum and I watched The Avengers over the past two nights (another long movie). She thought it was, quote, "awesome". She asked if they were doing another right as the first one ended. She likes The Hulk the best.

And that's my entertainment news for tonight. You may now return to your regularly scheduled insanity.

I had this problem for a bit. But then I wrote something where they had to talk to each other and that seemed to diffuse the situation.

Ooh, that's a neat trick. I will try that.

I'm trying to write Bond's narration again, and it's very slow going. Plus he seems to be flirting with Q, and I don't even ship them, and I can't figure out if they are acting of their own accord, or if Bond's default setting is 'flirt'. And it's really inappropriate anyway because they are trapped In a collapsed building, and this is no time for flirting!

I think Bond's default is flirting. I felt like he was basically anger!flirting when he met Silva for the first time and that really wasn't the time for flirting either.

Nope, avoided that like the plague. Stuck to dialogue via communicators only. Not even doing expressions!

True. Though, to be fair, Silva started it, I think.

Hee! I'm picturing Bond standing in a dark room speaking with a blank face but animated voice.

I could switch over to Q, I suppose, but...it doesn't have the same oomph. I guess I'll just hack away at it. I have same problem as I do when I narrate with Sherlock--he sees everything in such crisp, clinical detail that I feel like I'm writing a lab report more than a story.

He also notices so much it's hard to toe the line of being realistically Sherlock but not overloading the story with random detail that he would take in.

Ha! You're only allowed out to pull a trigger.

Yes! Any time he's not listing random detail I feel like he's OOC. Though it can work to an advantage when you're showing what he's prioritized as important to note. Like in Scandal when we get that John hasn't called his sister. It means that Sherlock had to remember there is a sister and remember what John looks like when he has spoken to her, in order to know that he hasn't. It's a lot of trivia for someone who doesn't care.
