    Summary

    Mycroft points out, in his dry way, that John is more interested in Sherlock than either Sherlock or John himself are aware of.

    In Sherlock's attempt to avoid some sort of unwanted advance on John's part, Sherlock and John clash, before getting back to normality.

    Summary

    Joan smiled at her, feeling her heart burst with fondness.
    She lowered her head, whispering in Sherlock’s ear, “You’re a bee charmer, my dear Sherlock Holmes, an adorable bee charmer...”
    Sherlock smiled at nothing, keeping her eyes closed and gripping a bit more tightly onto Joan’s hand.
    Joan sighed with happiness, resting her head against the trunk behind her. She felt happy like one can only feel when falling in love on a summer’s day.

     

    Loose reinterpretation of the novel “Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Café”. I repeat: loose.

    Summary

    A series of small fics based on daily prompts as part of the Watson's Woes series most probably joanlock-centric. Joan was born on a Wednesday but her life is not all woe. Sherlock was born on a Thursday, he still has miles to go.

    Prompt #28: Bad, Bad, oh so Bad! Whether it's bad art, bad fiction, or just plain awful, let the badness inspire you in some way today.

    I took them at their word: Bad, really bad .... (reference to Prompt #25, Chapter 22)

    Summary

    Continuation of my Christmas fic, Frothy Charms Amp Ships: Happy Christmas from SH, but you don't have to read that to follow this. All's you need to know: Sherlock planned a traditional Christmas for John, who is back at 221B after Mary fled (having faked her pregnancy), and the two idiots finally held hands and managed an oblique confession of sorts. Sherlock gave John the journal he kept during his time in exile, and it is of course encrypted.

    This is a diary/epistolary lark that throws in some cipher decoding fun. You can follow along and decrypt them yourself -- notes on that at the end of this chapter.

    Number of chapters not yet known, apologies for that. Not beta'd or Brit-picked either; errata alerts welcome!

    Summary

    The month of June, 1898, was mild enough, but the beginning of July brought hot weather and cloudless skies, the rain of autumn and winter long forgotten. The air hung heavy and oppressive in the city of London, and deterred both decent citizens and the criminal classes from too much physical activity. Sherlock Holmes sat sprawled in his armchair, touching as little of the upholstery as he could, legs outstretched and arms akimbo, fanning himself half-heartedly with a folded-up newspaper that was empty of newsworthy material.

    Summary

    When the dragons "came out" to the rest of the world, nobody expected the resulting War that broke out between Humans and Beasts. Both sides afraid and suspicious of each other, Humans drove Dragons into slavery, imprisoning them and turning their children into weapons for the military. Forced into hiding, many Dragons disguised themselves as Human and kept their secrets locked away, awaiting for the day when the royal blood line long since vanished would once again reappear and lay waste to the Humans that oppressed them.

    John is a reluctant soldier in the Queen's Army, hoping to pay his medical school degree with three years of service. He's just been told to pick out a Dragon from the Kennels to train and serve beside in the War in Afghanistan. More than a little afraid and yet fascinated by the creatures, he just hopes he doesn't end up barbequed...

    Sherlock Holmes can't remember his past, but one thing is for certain: He is never going to become some Human's pet. However John Watson doesn't exactly seem like the typical Human.

    Can Dragon and Man really get along? Or even more, become friends?

    Summary

    Throughout the month of July, I will be posting one story per day. They'll be short--probably around 1,000 words--unedited, and unbetaed. Basically, I write without stopping until it's finished, and then it goes straight up. I'm posting everything mostly as a way to keep myself accountable, but hopefully people will also get some enjoyment out of them. If nothing, it's a bit of insight into the raw, uncut version of how I write.

    If you have a prompt or an idea you'd like to see me do, feel free to leave it as a comment or send me an ask at justacookieofacumberbatch.tumblr.com/ask.

    Summary

    Loosely based off of Thomas Hardy's Far From the Madding Crowd, this work follows the lives of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson as they navigate poverty, love, misery, and hope in nineteenth century rural England.

    Although the piece draws inspiration as well as plot from Hardy's novel, you do not need to have read Far From the Madding Crowd in order to enjoy Farther.

    Summary

    "Sherlock had never expected that he would need anyone in his life. After all, he hadn't since he was small. He had never needed Mummy’s coddling or Mycroft’s advice (or so he continued to tell himself) so it came as a complete surprise that he had come to need John Watson in a way that was both foreign and terrifying to him. This revelation came with the equally astounding realization the he may even have been lonely before meeting John. Who had been there to make sure he ate regularly? Who had been there to praise him for every new and brilliant deduction? who had been the strong, steady presence at his side through any danger he may face? Before John there was nobody, just as there had been for the dreadfully long time he had been away from Baker Street. The absence of all of John’s brilliant qualities had never been so haunting."

    Or, in other words, Sherlock is an idiot, John is John and everyone else barely even exists.
