My second ficlet is for [livejournal.com profile] alafaye who requested "ACD canon -- Holmes/Watson, a Christmas evening together after Holmes returns".  This is Holmes & Watson, rather than Holmes/Watson, because Watson still mourns Mary.  What will happen in the future, who can tell.  Slightly melancholy, but the title should indicate promise for the future.

About a month ago [livejournal.com profile] solosundance posted this meme (which she acquired from [livejournal.com profile] saintvic) it seemed fun, so let's see how we go!

The meme:
1. Go to this website: www.random.org/lists/
2. Pick 15 characters from any fandom or whatever you’re into, type them in, then get your randomized list and match to the entries below.
3. Tag five or more people - or, you know, have a go if you fancy it
4. Have fun!

3. For each of the fandoms from day 2, what were your favourite characters to write?

Okay, well, let's be a little selective.  Here goes:

Sherlock (BBC): Sherlock, John, Lestrade, Victor Trevor, Stanley Hopkins
Sherlock Holmes (ACD): Holmes, Watson, Lestrade, Mrs Hudson, Hopkins, oh and Mouselet and the Ocelot
Lewis: Robbie Lewis, James Hathaway, I'm also fond of DI John Garrett my OC
Spooks: Lucas North (no surprise there then!)
Robin Hood: Guy of Gisborne, Much
Life on Mars: Sam and Gene, but also Phyllis and Annie
The Hobbit: Thorin, Bilbo
Forever: Henry Morgan, Abe Morgan
Person of Interest: Finch, Reese and Bear
The Rake's Progress: Tom Rakewell, Nick Shadow
North & South: John Thornton
Almost Human: Kennex, Dorian
Winnie-the-Pooh: Pooh, Piglet, Rabbit, Tigger, Eeyore

And while we're talking about favourite characters, can I put in a plug for [livejournal.com profile] older_not_dead which is currently looking for prompts for Proptathon 22 "Elements", because it's those prompts I am using for Sussex Retirement my ACD Holmes/Watson retirement series.

Meme nicked from [livejournal.com profile] solosundance and [livejournal.com profile] hardboiledbaby: take the first and last sentence from your top kudos fics.  All my fics with the most kudos are Sherlock (no surprise there), so I'm also taking top ones from other fandoms - as I see fit.

The sixth of my 12 Days of Christmas stories is for [livejournal.com profile] winryweiss

The background to this story is the ACD AU 'verse that is best summed up by Watson's Diary a story that [livejournal.com profile] scfrankles and I co-wrote, and is probably a good reason why neither of us should be allowed out on our own, (or be left to run a LJ comm).  Suffice to say that the pairings are Holmes/Hopkins and Watson/Lestrade.

[livejournal.com profile] winryweiss requested Lestrade and Hopkins sharing the experience about how hard it is (sometimes) to deal with their 'dearest friends'. However, unfortunately for Hopkins, Lestrade had his own thoughts.  Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy this.

A Delicate Question

Fandom: Sherlock Holmes ACD verse
Characters: Dr John Watson, Sherlock Holmes, Inspector Lestrade
Rating: PG
Word Count: 500
Summary: In last week's discussion of [livejournal.com profile] sherlock60 on The Noble Bachelor I suggested that there might have been more than one John Watson.  [livejournal.com profile] spacemutineer encouraged me to write something to this effect. 


You realise that there is now another John Watson residing at 221B Baker Street )

Fandom: ACD Holmes
Characters: Dr Watson, Sherlock Holmes,
Rating: PG
Notes: Written for the [info]holmes100 prompt "My Dear Watson, that's no lady."

Holmes’ investigation had led us to a club that provided for the needs of discerning gentlemen.  Whilst he was making his enquiries I permitted myself the opportunity to appraise the ladies who were employed there.  One in particular caught my eye, a tall young thing with very beautiful hair.  I debated whether it would be possible to invite her out for supper.  However, when I went to her dressing room I was horrified to see a wig on the stand and a young man removing his make-up.  And then I heard Holmes remark drolly, “My dear Watson, that’s no lady.”
