Over on my live journal I’ve been posting a short fan fiction each day since Christmas Eve, each from a different two word prompt.
Today marked the posting of the final fic and I can honestly say I’m sad to be done with them. Creating these stories has completely refreshed my writing mojo and I’ve had an absolute blast working from the prompts and trying out styles and formats I’d probably not otherwise have attempted. I didn’t even get panicked when my good intentions to have them all written and polished before I posted the first one on Christmas Eve completely fell apart and I ended up finishing all bar one of them off on the days they went up.
In which Hamish asks a question, Sherlock provides an answer, and John is impressed.
Christmas Day is almost over, yet there is one last gift for Sherlock to open.
Sherlock’s interest in details had to start somewhere. So did his interest in John
On landing in Abbis Ababa.
In which Arthur discovers he does. Lots of them. Funnily enough Merlin’s not so keen.
Found in the dispatch box of Dr J. H. Watson, and dated August 1902, it is believed that the good doctor intended this to be a short preface to his record of the events encompassed in The Three Garridebs. Due to the state of both paper (badly degraded) and writing (excitable to the point of illegibility) is has not been possible, until now, to share it with the world.
The littlest of things can spark the most important of memories.
How do you react when you find out two of your mates have got together? Well, if your name is Gregory Lestrade, you use the opportunity to make a really appalling pun.
It’s been a brilliant New Year’s Eve and Arthur just has to phone Tiffy to tell her all about it.
Sherlock’s only been away six months but London is calling him home, if only for the briefest of visits. At least he thought it was London that was calling.
John takes a bit of a risk with Sherlock’s gift.
As far as descriptions of Sherlock go this isn’t one most people would come up with, or even realise could be true. Mycroft Holmes, however, is very definitely not most people.
Watson muses on what Holmes has brought into his life.
Oh, and I’ll definitely be doing this again next year!
