    Summary

    “A children’s book,” John mutters as he flips it open. The pages are scrawled with beautiful charcoal lines and thick black ink. The cover, bright red, edges the open pages and something tugs at the back of John’s brain. It’s a familiar feeling, black and tarrish and thick in his thoughts. He shakes it off and picks the book up off his bed, turning so that he can sit on the edge and spread the book out across his knees.

    If it’s in a word or it’s in a look, you can’t get rid of the Babadook.

    He turns the page, ignoring the pressure building beneath his chest. There’s a closet on one page; paper doors meant to be opened by the reader flutter as John reads the text on the other page.

    Summary

    From an Awful AU prompt:

    “I work in a haunted house and it’s right in the middle of Halloween hype season so I’m doing my grade-A television-worthy zombie impersonation. So when I jumped around the corner to scare you, you punched me directly in the face, and now you’re torn between making sure I’m okay and trying to convince your friends that you weren’t actually afraid.”

    ETA: I don't personally think this AU is awful...hokey, maybe, but it tickled me right in my facepunching-is-glorious spot. It's from the Awful AU Tumblr, which publishes AUs of varying awfulness.

    Suggested soundtrack: My Body's a Zombie for You by Dead Man's Bones

    Summary

    Sherlock had been counting on the foliage for cover. Nature had other plans.

    Excerpt: Sherlock glared through the bare branches of the shrubs curving around the east side of the hillock, dividing it from the lower path and the bench on its verge. Only the holly stood green and glossy to one side. “It wasn’t that windy last night,” he grumbled, consulting his phone again. He shoved it in his pocket. A leaf floated past, serrated and gold, to land on the pile that came nearly to his knees.

    A small stand-alone, set sometime after Sherlock returns, inspired by the leaves of autumn.
