    Wanted: Sherlockian pen friend

    Post by The Consulting Detective on Wed Apr 25, 2012 6:41 am

    Good evening/afternoon for the Americans among us!

    The title says enough. I am looking for a Sherlockian pen friend to write letters to. I have always loved the idea of writing letters to a pen fiend in a foreign country, but I have had never interesting people to write to. So my question to you is: Would anyone like to get mail from me? (because I know you ARE interesting people :))

    I'll send a letter written by hand, babbling about my daily life I guess... About what do people write each other for the first time?

    If you like, and living in an English-speaking country, would you be bothered if I sent you a Sherlock fanfic that I wrote? Would you mind grammar nazi-ing it? I'd like to improve my English grammar and vocabulary. I'd like to be as good as a grammar nazi x)

    Sooo... if anyone is interested, please comment below and/or send me your address by private message (considering privacy reasons).

    Thanks for reading this anyway!

    x The Consulting Detective/The Woman :)

    COOL! Very Happy Where are you from? Very Happy

    Please keep in mind that I am 16 and pretty alone among all Sherlock-ignorant people in my high school. That fact guarantees a MASSIVE load of fangirling Razz I am from the Netherlands, if anyone had forgotten Smile

    No, sweety. It isn't. Buahahaaa!
    What actually is creepy is the fact that I'm at work, it's 3am and i have to sit next to our front door because it's the only place where internet works. I can still hear the mice and our next door neighbours can see me and they probably think what the hell is that person doing. Also Security dudes will do their round at some point and if they check this place I will probably have an heart attack so who needs ghosts or creepy houses when you get all the excitement at work! I just <3 my work. I hope grammar nazis will ignore this rant.

    @Sherlock Holmes & Mrs Hudson - its lovely isn't it..like cake and jam (I am an oldie too) I work some nights and write excellent fanfics at night - normally smutty though.

    Used to love my penpals as a kid and miss physically writing so that is why I hand write my case studies for Uni. Writing is getting like an ancient art form with computers and texting (sorry rant over)

    @Anthea & Sherlock Holmes Cake... Jam... Now I'm just hungry ant I don't have anything sweet to eat. I've done fair share of 11h nights and apparently I do nothing but them for next 2 weeks. You know you are getting older when you can't stay awake for 24h and you feel dead after you shift even though you have done basically nothing. Are uni students old? Never went to one so no idea really.

    I used to have penpals too but my pretty little life has been really really really boring and it still is. So writing a letter... Hard! One of the reasons why I have never ever written a diary either. I kinda miss letters though. Letters are nice, warm and fuzzy. I think we wrote letters in elementary school and gave them during classes... And we saw eatch other at least 5 times a week! Friends <3

    @Anthea Ah, you've been busy then. I got one year less on my belt and I'm not too keen on getting back to school if I can avoid that.
