... this is so gorgeous and I'm the luckiest fan in the world.

My [ profile] acd_holmesfest gift turned out to be an absolutely perfect illustration (more precisely a comic) to my fic The Strange Case of the Ruby Crucifix, created by the wonderfully talented [ profile] vernets.

I'm over the moon. Intimate and sensual and so, so beautiful. Thanks again!

So finally I'm doing my homework and posting my recent [ profile] acd_holmesfest fic. It was written for [ profile] mistyzeo, who basically requested "something sweet and sexy with a happy ending" and I did my best to oblige.

Title: The Merits of Poetic Licence.
Characters/Pairings: Holmes/Watson.
Rating and warnings: PG-13, no warnings.
Disclaimer: Not mine, as usual.
Betaed by: [ profile] mrs_sweetpeach (as usual). Thank you so much!
Summary: The quality of writing is disagreed upon, and Watson proves himself to be an unreliable narrator. Eventually, though, Holmes comes to realize that the liberal use of poetic licence may occasionally lead to quite favourable results.

Here's my current [ profile] holmestice fic, written as a gift for [ profile] methylviolet10b. Based on this prompt from her journal.

Characters/Pairings: Holmes/Watson friendship, ACD canon. Slash goggles are not essential but their use is encouraged.

Disclaimer: Not mine, as usual.
Betaed by: [ profile] mrs_sweetpeach (as usual). Love & hugs to you, my dear!
Summary: On a nightly winter journey in the year 1881, John Watson discovers his gift of storytelling. Unfortunately he doesn’t know yet that some tales ought to be told with caution…

"Over here..."

Here’s my own contribution to the [ profile] acd_holmesfest gift exchange, written for [ profile] love_bug_54:

Title: The End of a Journey
Rating and warnings: PG for violence. Minor character death.
Characters/Pairings: Holmes/Watson, established relationship; also two canon characters whose identity I will not reveal just yet.
Summary: An old enemy applies for Holmes’ help and possesses the means to ensure the unwilling detective’s cooperation. While Holmes follows the trail back to a murder that was never avenged, Watson finds himself doubting his own concepts of justice and retribution.
Word count: around 9700.
Thanks to [ profile] mrs_sweetpeach for being the most wonderful beta an author could wish for, and [ profile] thesmallhobbit for thorough and patient britpicking. Hugs to you both!

... can, apparently, also be called "Dr. Watson".

At least that's what I found in the local garden center on Saturday. After a bit of research on my part, which proved a little difficult because it's more commonly known under another name and the google search kept directing me to fanfic sites *g*, it turned out that it is this one:

Pretty, isn't it? I'll see how it likes the spot near the terrace that just so happened to be vacant.

Just to prove to myself that, yes, I am able to finish a fic without a deadline... here it is! :)

Characters: John Watson, Someone Else. BBC verse… basically. Gen.
Rating: PG.
Length: Around 1600 words.
Summary: John cannot fathom why, even given the circumstances, he should be facing something as pathetic as an existential crisis. But a very strange encounter sets things into a new perspective.
Warnings: None, except for spoilers for TRF.
Disclaimer: Not mine, as usual.
Betaed by and discussed with [ profile] mrs_sweetpeach once again – thank you so much!

Yes, it really seems that without holmestice, I wouldn't do any fic writing at all. At least I'd be finishing none. So here it is, my once-every-six-months fic, this time written for [ profile] breathandflesh :

Title: The Relevance of Goodness
Characters/Pairings: Holmes/Trevor, Holmes/Watson; both can be read as friendship or pre-slash. ACD canon.
Rating: G
Warnings: none
Word Count: around 1700
Betaed by [ profile] mrs_sweetpeach again - huge thanks!
Summary: One friend offers him safety, the other believes him dead. At the end of the day Victor Trevor begins to understand Sherlock Holmes’ decision. Hiatus fic.

"Over here..."
mainecoon76: (Paget 3)
Another [ profile] holmestice fic - this one was written as a gift for [ profile] lavvyan, who really deserves a novel for being a holmestice mod. :)

BTW, that community site is once again highly recommended. And if anyone likes cracky adventure fic featuring Victorian zombies, you'll probably enjoy the gift I received myself, which is "Impossible" by [ profile] schwarze_elster (rated R).

So, here we go:

Characters/Pairings: H/W, Moriarty, mention of W/Mary; everything else is in the eye of the beholder. Book Canon with a dash of Granada, some ideas borrowed from BBC.

Word count: Around 6700.

Disclaimer: Not mine, as usual.

Rating: PG. And slash.

Betaed by [ profile] mrs_sweetpeach, who once again spent a lot of time correcting my mistakes and discussing tricky dialogue (which was fun and led to significant improvement). Thanks!

Summary: “I feel that I am looking into a dusty mirror, and looking back at me is a twisted image of myself. It is the image of a man I could have become… Perhaps it is even the image of the man I am destined to be.” Watson wrote down the events leading up to Reichenbach, but sometimes even those who are closest to us are not privy to our deepest secrets. This is Holmes’ POV.

Author's Notes: Prequel to "Precious", set during Holmes' time in America just before "His Last Bow". And yes, I know that this should be written in early 20th century American slang. I have no idea how to do that, unfortunately, so maybe you could just imagine someone transcribed it into more traditional English for better readability?
And it's still unbetaed. If someone would like to do it, you're welcome! :)

Disclaimer: I own nothing.

Rating and warnings: Definitely G. Just people talking about their problems. It seems to be the only thing I can write. *sigh*
But there's still slash implied, though I suppose you could read it differently if you really try. Still, the easiest thing would be not to read it if you don't like the idea.

Author’s Note: This is my personal conclusion to the Sherlock Holmes series, as I was dissatisfied with the ending we got in canon. It is meant to fit in directly after His Last Bow, not to contradict anything ACD wrote (I hope I managed), and to still explain everything from a slashy point of view (which is easier than from a non-slashy one, IMHO).

Disclaimer: I own nothing. The booths in the restaurant are borrowed from Cress’s "Prelude", since they are so convenient. Everything else belongs to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, or whoever represents him today.

Thanks to: Harriet for beta services! Some parts did sound a little strange before you laid your hands on it.

Rating and warnings: PG, I think. And slash, so don’t read it if the idea disturbs you.
