On July the third I sent an email regarding a fictional kidnapped cat via a form on a strange website; a website I only learned about from a mysterious box of business cards which appeared on my doorstep. Then suddenly everything went Twilight Zone. I got an odd call from my credit card…

The 221Believers weren’t dead; only sleeping. Find out why…

Okay, after a battle with customer service about unacceptable QC, I now have non-defective 221Believers/Believe in Sherlock wristbands. I’m VERY sorry for the delay and feel quite bad that after offering to do this for Chris things went wrong D: But it’s all fixed now! They are 3/4” wide black silicone with gold metallic ink fill in the debossed lettering, 8” circumference, and read “I BELIEVE IN SHERLOCK” and “221Believers”, with “believeinsherlock.com” on the inside. They ship worldwide and are discounted if you buy multiples. More pics: front 1 / back / back 2 / inside

Because of the snafu with the bands, I also have 100 221Believers lanyards available. They are 3/4” wide polyester with white screenprinting and a plastic clip to attach to your con badge/keyring/whatever (detail pic here). Like the bands, if you buy multiples, they ship together (including if you buy bands and lanyards together).

Both bands and lanyards can be ordered HERE. I am doing them for 221Believers and shipping them out so if you have questions about it, ask me (Chris won’t know lol). If you pre-ordered bands your order is going out today.

If you happen to WANT some defective bands with your order (y’know, to give to friends you don’t like that well), put a note with your payment. Do be aware they’re pretty jacked up.

Even cacti believe in Sherlock, apparently…?

Since we can’t be at SDCC for the rally, thought we could at least make a new flyer to help those going promote the Believe in Sherlock movement. Something must’ve been making us think of terrifying criminal masterminds… Also posting the original for your convenience. house_of_darkly says there’s a “freebie” table where anyone can leave flyers, so that’s one good spot to put them if you can print out a few. :¬) 

And of course, even if you’re not going this is most of us we can be in the sadness club together, you can still print out a few and post them around wherever you are!

A mysterious box turned up on my doorstep. No mailing labels or markings, just a little white box. It didn’t occur to me until AFTER I opened it that it might be a bomb; but fortunately it’s nothing but a whole lot of business cards. Luke and I tried to dust the box for prints, but all we had was powdered cocoa… let’s just say my DIY CSI:MacGyver impression wasn’t so great. :¬P Not sure what we’d have done with prints had we gotten any… anyhow, these are the cards inside, about 100 of them I’d say. I’ve already sent some to house_of_darkly’s hotel in San Diego, hopefully she can give some out at the rally. 

The phone number is apparently disconnected, but there’s a site at the URL: http://www.consultdoctormagic.com Not sure what to make of it. Wasn’t sure at first if I should even post the URL to everyone. Thought it was a mistake or weird advert, but… am I jumping to conclusions about the fox on these cards? Could it be the one we’re supposed to “follow” as per our last coded message? (You can’t see but there’s a fox under the lettering too - it’s only visible if you tilt it just so.) 

What do you think? Who on earth is “Doctor Magic”? Does this have something to do with the reply I sent to the text message “FOL(L)OW THE FOX”? Should we email Doctor Magic?

Here’s the solution (as far as we can figure out) to the second mystery coded text. Also, the code and solution to the first text:

Both only solved with assistance from several members including all-four-cheekbones. This second message seems even more inscrutable than the first… I don’t know what it means. What fox? And is there some reason why both messages have missing letters (“R” and “L”), or is it just a mistake? Is this someone trying to aid us, mislead us, or just an elaborate prank…?
I finally concluded that the only thing to do now is the one thing I’m quite uneasy about the thought of - sending a reply to the text. So, I sent one last week, and while I didn’t receive a reply, something odd did happen that may be connected…

221Believers/Believe in Sherlock wristband update

houseofdarkly:

The wristbands have come, and there’s a problem. More like a lot of problems. Details on that, and what I’m doing to solve it (tl;dr there WILL be wristbands, but it will take a little longer)

You have our support in assuring that this isn’t just done, but done right.

Nice work again all-four-cheekbones! There WAS a fox in The Story-teller, but only in one episode and I’ve forgotten its name. It was something with an “F”, but not “Folof”…The “F” in “FOX” hasn’t got the little box, and the letter at the end of “FOLO” does. So I think we can assume it’s a “W” (Occam’s razor). 

We’re sending a reply to the unknown number with the solution to the code, so they know we “get it”. Hopefully then they’ll send us something that makes sense further guidance?
