John's Song [podfic first]

Work Text:

John's Song - A Sherlock podfic made for week 4 of PodfIdic

This was the challenge: Remix the following three seeds to make a story in your fandom. I took lines from oneand three, and the idea of a meeting from seed two (totally from canon) and mixed them to make an original JOHN SHERLOCK story. Here are the seeds if you are interested. The challenge can be found at http://podfidic.dreamwidth.org/ .

 John's Song

Seed 1

[Character] accepted the cup of tea and took a sip. "That's an unusual choice."
"I thought you might [reaction] it."
[Character] [action].
"Careful."
"Mmm."
They looked at each other.
"It tastes a bit like [flavor]."
"Yes." [Character] [action]. "I thought it was [description], considering the circumstances."
[Character] [action].


Seed 2

[Character] rounded the corner and saw [Character] coming from the other direction.
“I really didn’t expect to see you here.”
“Why not?”
“Because [reason].”
"Want some company?"
"[Response].”
They kept walking and saw [a third character] hurrying down the sidewalk.
"Hi [Character]. This is [Character], my [something]."
[Character] nodded, but [they] didn't stop to chat. "Sorry, I'm late to [event]!" [They] rushed off.
"Did you have to lie?"
"Was I lying?"


Seed 3

[Character] sat beside the brook and let [subject] tumble through [their] mind. Perhaps it was a mistake, [pursuing course of action], but [they] couldn't see a better choice.

[They] pulled a book out of their bag, running [their] fingers over the cover. It fell open to a much-read passage, and [they] tried to immerse [themself] in the familiar words.

However, [they] failed, and what-ifs kept running through [their] mind. What if [Character] was right, and [alternative course of action] was the correct one? What if [Character]'s course of action was the best one, but there would still be dire consequences like [(dramatic) consequence].

[Character] closed the volume. No, [they] decided, [course of action] was the best thing to do, and [they] were going to do it. [They] tucked the book back in their bag and stood up [adverb]. It was time.
