Intheflesh advent calendar


You may know about this from another post I made, but this project deserves it’s own.

This project is about designing 24 “doors” for this fandom’s very own count down to Christmas, consisting of artworks and accompanying ficlets.

If you are an artist or writer and want to design one of the doors, you can apply by sending a message.
Be sure to have samples of your work featured on your blog or include links in the message.

By the end of October, the 24 most promising artists and writers will be chosen and messaged.

The work will be featured on this blog as well as on it’s twitter account.


I balanced all, brought all to mind. The years to come seemed waste of breath, a waste of breath the years behind. In balance with this life, this death.

My nan always said I was special, but I just figured that’s something all nans say.










A tip from your favorite nurse

(that’d be me)

Always have eggs in your fridge

You just never know when someone will split their head open

Or cut their finger while cooking

And so on

See that membrane there?

While the blood is gushing - hold pressure and crack open an egg

Peel that there membrane off and put it on the wound (continue holding pressure)

The membrane will harden and keep the wound closed until you can get to the ER for stitches

If you even need them that is

Nature: 1, Band aids: 0

You’re welcome.

I did some research on this (because I do that now, fucking science get out) and it seems that this was done in the early 1900s somewhat frequently. It was used as a way to treat just about any kind of skin wound, from burn to cut to in at least one case an ulcer. It actually helps the wound heal not by preventing blood loss but by replacing part of the skin tissue and helping it grow.

It also helps in healing scars and reducing their visibility.

Whoah science.




Also, if you have a splinter, smack one of these things on there and it will draw it out of your skin. No more shitting around with pliers.

it will also suck the poison stuff out of mosquito bites and stop them from being itchy

woaaah i didnt know!! awesome stuff :D

Did not know the mosquito bite or splinter thing!  EGGS—IS THERE ANYTHING THEY CAN’T DO?

They cant fix the economy

I want to try all these now….


being an introvert is really hard because there is no polite way to tell someone that you’re in a bad mood because you’re exhausted from socializing.



I feel so bad for John Watson.

Like, the guy probably had a rough childhood and he’s not close to anyone in his family. He’s probably a closeted bisexual who enlisted himself in the army where had an apparently tragically ending affair there, and then ended up getting shot and nearly died. He then came back to the city alone and depressed as well as suicidal, sporting a physical wound and a psychosomatic one. Then he met this guy who he instantly clicked with and became his best friend. He started pining and getting jealous over him, but thought it was all one-sided. And then, said pined for best friend went and jumped off a building in front of him. He loved him, and he was lost in the world without him. He basically walked around like a widower for two years, lying to himself that he had moved on, and he rushes into a relationship though he knows it’s not right, and ends up about to propose to someone else when it turns out his best friend had lied to him and was alive after all. Right as all of his confused feelings are happening, he gets drugged, kidnapped, and nearly set on fire. Then when he forgives him (because of course he forgives him, he needs him like a drug) and things settle down he’s happy for the briefest moment, thinking he has everything he’s ever wanted. But it can’t last. Tthe man he had an affair with in the army nearly killed himself after his wedding. To top all of that off, at the end of his wedding night, he realized the love was never one-sided with his best friend, but he had just gotten married and his wife was pregnant so there was nothing to be done. After one month of marriage he’s already aching to get out and dreaming of his best friend, who hasn’t contacted him in a month. Then surprise, he’s on drugs supposedly moving on and in a relationship. Then that night, his best friend is shot and nearly dead for real this time. Not even having enough time to process this, it’s a week later he finds out his new wife he’s bickering and unhappy with is the one who did it and that she’s been lying to him the whole time. Then his best friend becomes a murderer in front of his eyes, killing a man to protect him and almost flies off to his death for the third and final time.

And even though the plane turns around, he’s already hurting, and S4 is coming and begging for a Three Garridebs scene so on top of that he’s probably going to be critically injured and on the brink of death, and, who knows, the baby probably isn’t even his.

I just…

Someone help this man.
