Just how can somebody be together AGAIN for the FIRST time?? Sherlock Holmes and Sigmund Freud are officially really cool 'cause they can be together again even if they just met for the first time.

... OMG they're so cool.

Is this a Freudian slip? Meaning they got together before but then they kept it a secret because of circumstances not made to be known to the general public? I'm talking about politically sensitive issues, yes, thank you very much, of course. Er, no, non è una menzogne.

I got lucky in a booksale and got two pastiche books on Sherlock Holmes, meaning they're not canon ♥ Of course, one has Ziggy Freud as a collaborator. It explains The Great Hiatus and Holmes being killed by Moriarty differently from the canon, and focuses on his destructive love affair with coke. By that I mean cocaine D: WHAT DOES FREUD HAVE TO DO WITH IT? Well, well, well, what is he good at? OEDIPUS COMPLEXES.

I'll stop before I blurt out the whole thing.

This was worth P29! Bargain! And yeah, you can see my Italian translations underneath it. Molto difficile.

The other pastiche is newer. 7% was made 1970s, while this was early 2000s. And it was written by... Caleb Carr.

Who is he? He wrote this shit...

... which has got to be one of my favorite Victorian-era America novels of all time. There's a serial killer on the loose whose prey of choice are BOY WHORES. And he cuts them up Jack the Ripper style. And the protagonist is an avant-garde psychiarist by the name of Laszlo Kriezler. And he's got a youngish crime reporter as a narrator Watson-style. What's not to love?

So, his Holmes pastiche is this...

What a lame title, right? If I didn't see the Sherlock Holmes, I'd have put it back with a vengeance. I haven't read it yet, but from the intro, it seems to be quite supernatural. I'd love to have seen Holmes and Watson collaborate with Kreizler and Moore ♥ They're of the same time, albeit of different shores. But Irene Adler was American, right?

Ah, italiano. I have to get back to i miei traduzioni. If only Romano was teaching me ;___; Ciao a tutti.

fasdlgj omg my cousin had a Holmes book not written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle too
I didn't know they were called pastiche books
I thought they were 1970s-era fanfiction kind of. like Star Trek novels ;o;

together again for the first time

OH GOD. I always knew these two were awesome. And THIS. :))) No words.

Caleb Carr sounds oddly familiar. I think he was mentioned to me back then by one of my friends, but right now I can't remember what it was about him.
The Alienist.. Am I the only one who sees this as something a la Kuroshitsuji.. >.>;;; ehh.. yeah.. ''OTL

I want to have time to read books again.. ;___;
