During the past year I have got to know a number of people from [livejournal.com profile] ushobwri Writers who are generally in different fandoms, so I would be unlikely to come across them otherwise.  One of these is [livejournal.com profile] aome whose request "You know, since Sherlock doesn't seem to be the sort to care about gifts (either given or received), perhaps something gift-oriented might be interesting? How would he react if John brought him one? Or might he be uncharacteristically inspired to give John something after all? Would it be a normal gift or something odd?" gave me some thought and then I found something which Sherlock believed to be perfect.

Beware of Consulting Detectives Bearing Gifts


There is still one day unspoken for, so if anyone would still like a ficlet, please shout.

Over the last few months I've taken part in a few exchanges, and received some excellent fics, so I'm now sharing them with you:

The first was for Night on a Fic Mountain: Dinner with the Morgans by ArgyllePirateWD, a Forever fic which hit all my favourites: Henry & Abe, Henry remembering the past, Abe wanting to celebrate Henry's birthday (a childhood tale), Jo being lovely, Lucas being geeky.  It was particularly appreciated, because it was written as a pinch hit.

The second was for Not Prime Time: England is England Yet by lynndyre, an ACD Holmes fic set in the hiatus.  It takes Watson in all his sorrow (post Mary's death) and gently leads him on.  I enjoyed the way the characters were portrayed.

And the last one was not for an exchange, but written for me by [livejournal.com profile] okapi1895 It's part of her Cheers series, Pimm's Cup, which, although the series is rated E, this one is G.  It's BBC Sherlock, panders to my competency kink, and features Sherlock encountering Stanley Hopkins' from my River Police 'verse.  Not Stanley himself, but his desk, from which Sherlock makes a number of deductions, including a desire to get to know this particular inspector rather better.  It's absolutely lovely!

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.

The eighth of my 12 Days of Christmas stories was written for [livejournal.com profile] fengirl88.

Her prompt fell within the Sherlock (BBC) fandom, when she asked for Sherlock, John and Lestrade.  On this occasion I have written them as a threesome because it seemed to work.

I hope you enjoy this fluff, [livejournal.com profile] fengirl88 and that 2015 goes well for you.

The fourth of my 12 Days of Christmas stories was written for [livejournal.com profile] azriona

Every year Mycroft holds a very select drinks party.  That wasn't her prompt, but to reveal what it was might spoil some of the fun.  I trust that this story does justice to it.

The third of my 12 Days of Christmas stories is for [livejournal.com profile] ascendant_angel.

She asked for Sherlock and John, non-romantic, hurt and comfort.  I'm not sure this is quite what she had in mind, but hopefully it fits the bill.

I hope you had a lovely Christmas [livejournal.com profile] ascendant_angel.

Fic meme

I pinched this meme from [livejournal.com profile] canonisrelative who posted it about six weeks ago.

12 characters meme

Pick 12 characters from any fandoms and list them before you read the questions that follow. I picked (listed in alphabetical order to stop me cheating):
1 – Guy of Gisborne
2 – James Hathaway
3 – Sherlock Holmes
4 – Stanley Hopkins
5 – John Kennex
6 – Greg Lestrade
7 – Robbie Lewis
8 – Much
9 – Lucas North
10 – Victor Trevor
11 – John Watson
12 – Wildcard (in practise probably Reese or Finch, but not necessarily)
All Sherlockian characters may be either ACD or BBC.  Any complaints, it’s my meme interpretation, I can do as I like.

Here are the questions )
smallhobbit: (Mouselet)
Which is of course the cue for Mouselet.  I borrowed my headcanon for Inspector Hopkins from [livejournal.com profile] impishtubist so he bears a strong resemblance to Richard Armitage, which as for as ACD Sherlock Holmes is concerned means he looks like John Thornton from North & South.

Mouselet is smitten by Hopkins, so when [livejournal.com profile] scfrankles (to whom I owe a lot in encouraging me to continue with [livejournal.com profile] sherlock60) requested: "ACD Sherlock Holmes - Mouselet and Stanley Hopkins? They meet properly - Hopkins comes round to wish Holmes a merry Christmas and he sees Mouselet. He picks her up, strokes her, talks to her. Gives her a heart attack. That sort of thing" I could not resist.  Although I am too fond of Mouselet to give her a heart attack.

The sixth day of Christmas is New Year's Eve and everyone, including Sherlock and John should be celebrating.

By the fifth day everyone has had far too much sweetness and it's time for a brief change.

[livejournal.com profile] azriona asked for either ACD Holmes creaking staircases or BBC Sherlock dripping tap.  The tap made more noise, so I went with it.

The third day and the ficlet is of my favourite Sherlock pairing.  Now I know this won't tie in with series 3, but it is completely compatible in my world.

It is written for my good friend [livejournal.com profile] vix_spes who has introduced me to some lovely concerts by the Tewkesbury Camerata and posts lots of pics of Ben Whishaw, and shares my sadness at the demise of The Hour.  She requested John/Lestrade and Christmas markets.

To begin my Twelve Days of Christmas postings I have chosen the request from [livejournal.com profile] methylviolet10b for either ACD Holmes or BBC Sherlock in which a Christmas cracker contains something very unexpected.

Had I gone for ACD Holmes I suspect Inspector Hopkins would have found Mouselet in his cracker, as it is this is BBC Sherlock and Sherlock, John and Greg, are all surprised.

Archea2 asked what attracted me to John/Lestrade.  When I went to my first Sherlock meet-up, which was the first Annual Sherlock Picnic, there were 12 of us.  Everyone else shipped Sherlock/John, but for me it didn't work, and still doesn't.  But nobody minded me being different.  In fact I'm still friends with a good number of those I met then and now, whenever we're at meet-ups they make sure that I am aware of any Lestrade badges.  Not that this directly relates to my liking for J/L, but in that they were my first fandom friends and we are still friends I think they deserve a mention.

Out of curiousity I went back to look at my first Sherlock fanfics and yes, I've always written J/L.  My first 221B, written two years ago, when I was starting to explore the characters is J/L.  To me, they are both characters who have experienced a lot and have seen the worst and best of people.  Which means they don't have to explain to each other how they feel - Lestrade can come back after a bad day and he doesn't have to go into details, because John understands.  Yes, Sherlock too sees the dark side of the world, but he has the choice as to how much he is involved; which is something the doctor and the policeman don't have.  Sherlock has little patience with the "little people", both John and Lestrade care for them.

But it goes deeper than this.  I like hurt/comfort and to me this pairing provides a great many opportunities for the two to both receive and provide the comfort.  Equally they are both "tried and tested" and have complex characters, another of my likes.  Which means that the pairing works for me, in a way that none of the others do.

I do write Sherlock/Lestrade, as is obvious from my Unexpected Family 'verse.  But that is an AU, and the character of Sherlock is not the same as is seen in the series.

All the above refers to the BBC version of Sherlock, although I was delighted to discover in ACD Holmes that Lestrade stays over on the couch, which means that I can quite happily ship Watson/Lestrade as well and in my head canon when Holmes retires to Sussex to tend his bees Watson and Lestrade retire together and share a house to save on costs.

And I couldn't finish a post on John/Lestrade without mentioning the marvellous nanny!John blogs and DI Lestrade, husband to nanny!John which provide wonderful entertainment, friendship and occasional assistance.  Just remember folks, if Lestrade says it, don't Google it!
