    Summary

    Lately, life’s been pretty good to Thomas Hamilton. He runs a successful tattoo shop in Soho, NYC, loves his work, and has just come back from a fully booked tour of the US. Then the new flower shop opens across the street.

    An allergic reaction to Wisteria brings a furious Thomas to Walrus Cottage Blooms, where he meets his new neighbor, James Flint. Gorgeous, ginger and business savvy, Thomas ends up falling for him - hard. And the feeling is definitely mutual.

    Meanwhile, Billy can’t be trusted to run James’s Brixton shop without incurring the wrath of Buckingham Palace, Miranda is engaged to be married to husband number three, and decides to have the wedding in New York on a whim, Alfred Hamilton is still a massive dick, and Hal Gates may just lose his fucking mind by the time it’s all over.

    But hey, at least there are plenty of tattoos and flowers to go around.

    Summary

    Short ficelt inspired by a gifset on tumblr, where Dudley stands up to Vernon and tells Harry he doesn't think he's a waste of space and I went off on a headcanon tangent of "whatifs". Not beta'd not proofed, just copied from the post so people could read it easier :)

    Summary

    Time travelers who plan to kill Superman never account for Martha Kent in their plans. She may not be the World's Finest, but she's a mother with a shotgun, and all told that might be scarier.

    Summary

    This is a group of interlinked short stories (most between 2000 and 7000 words) which tell the story of how Holmes and Watson really came to be separated at the Reichenbach Falls, and how they found each other again. Each story is in the form of a document--a letter, a journal, a surveillance report, an affidavit, etc.--which is linked to one or more ACD canon tales, and which tells us something about that story that was changed or suppressed in Watson's published account of it. Holmes/Watson, with glimpses of other relationships. Only one story ("The Boy in the Boat," which is f/f) is rated M. Everything else is T.

    ACD canon stories that inspired "Missing Pages" include: The Hound of the Baskervilles, The Sign of Four, "The Final Problem," "The Empty House," "The Naval Treaty," "The Greek Interpreter," "The Gloria Scott," "The Noble Bachelor," "The Copper Beeches," "The Disappearance of Lady Frances Carfax," "The Devil's Foot," "The Illustrious Client."

    Many stories work as stand-alones. If you want the whole arc, just read them in the order in which they are posted. Either way you slice it, I hope you enjoy!
