  1. Summary

    On a world where Alexander the Great left a dynasty behind him and magic is a part of everyday life the lives of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson are somewhat different. This series is meant to be glimpses into their lives and the lives of those around them in preparation for a larger work that will finally bring them together as they always should be.

  3. Summary

    Every day I pick a card or three randomly from my Tarot deck as a prompt. I thought it was going to be a series of one shots but a plot has evolved and no one knows the paths it will take to get to a happy ending. Not even me.

    Starts directly after the Tarmac Scene.

    Summary

    Sherlock and John finish watching The Final Problem - the episode that was supposed to be history-making in terms of telling the story of their lives - and Sherlock finds himself disappointed with how the writers chose to conclude their story. So, he decides to fix the problem himself.

    The Final Problem fix-it ficlet! I wrote this at 3am cause I couldn't sleep and was disappointed in how The Final Problem ended. Set in a universe where BBC Sherlock is written and created about the real-life lives of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. This is my first posting on here, so I hope you like it!

    Summary

    “I don’t think I’ll want to talk about this again. There’s no point. But I have to ask, did you even once…at least tell me, while I was dying back here, waltzing into a goddamn spider’s snare, at least tell me you thought of me when you were away.”

    Sherlock blinks once, twice, then stands up.

    “Of course. Of course you can’t even answer that. Go, go sulk in your room.”

    “No, John. I’m going to answer you,” Sherlock starts unbuttoning his shirt. “You’re the one who’s still not ‘getting it.’ Moriarty was never going to kill me, not straight away. He was going to kill YOU."
