Links: Sherlock Adaptations, Gothic Romance, & More

Workspace with computer, journal, books, coffee, and glasses.Happy Hump Day! It’s Wednesday again and that means more links to share with you all. We’re halfway through the month of October and the end of the year is slowly creeping upon us. For me, it’s pretty much all downhill after this month! Are you excited for the upcoming holiday season?

HBO Go and HBO now offers Miss Sherlock, a Japanese retelling of the Sherlock and Watson pairing. Both characters are played by women! Have you seen the adaptation yet? How is it?

Heard of Patreon? Well McSweeney’s has come up with Matreon: The Patreon Platform for Emotional Labor:

Dear Guy Who Can’t Read The Room:

Hello and thank you for attempting to engage in an unsolicited conversation with me! In order to ensure our interaction is productive and enriching for both parties, I invite you to join my Matreon. For just a few dollars a month, you can continue to approach me with whatever the hell is on your mind regardless of context or appropriateness, and I will continue to do the emotional labor required to respond without calling you a privileged, myopic dipshit.

It’s so painfully true and funny.

Artist Kate Beaton has archived her Hark! A Vagrant comic site and dedicated it to her late sister. Last week, people on Twitter were recommending their favorite strips from the comic.

Author Rosanna Leo is over at Frolic.Media, discussing her love of Gothic romance and giving out some recommendations:

One of the reasons I adore this sub-genre of romance is the fact it usually reaches a satisfying conclusion. In most cases, the mystery is solved, the villains are exposed and the “demons” are exorcised. At the end, the reader breathes a sigh of relief as the protagonists declare their love. All the things that frightened us at the start of the novel don’t seem all that frightening anymore.

Have you read any of Leo’s recommended books?

Like Halloween, but don’t want to get too spooky? I love this music video for Twice’s “TT.” 

Don’t forget to share what super cool things you’ve seen, read, or listened to this week! And if you have anything you think we’d like to post on a future Wednesday Links, send it my way!
