Summary: Written for this prompt on the BBC Sherlock kink_meme. Sort of turned more into "Five times Sgt. Sally Donovan was wrong about Sherlock (and one time she realised it)." Sgt. Sally Donovan hates Sherlock Holmes, enough to save his life. But only after shooting him first (mentally).

Lesson learned: just because you can, doesn't mean you should. Also, I seriously miscalculated and you don't get unlimited so I can't put up a different one for every post. Probably thank Christ, yea?
Anyhoo, that was the first and probably primary point. Now, what this is actually about might be a bit of a blabber, but probably not, so we'll see if I need a LJ cut, Y/Y? Right.
I'm almost certain of two things. Both are things I think I probably shouldn't be doing.
1: When I watch FortySomething ep.6, in the scene where Rory and Daniel Slippery are sitting drunk on the bed in their new house, I probably shouldn't be thinking: "They should totally have sex. Or at least make out a little bit." (also, btw, I was watching Baseketball last night and the main character and his best friend were fighting, but just about to make up (you know those scenes). Anyway, they were standing with about 10cm space b/w their faces, looks of dawning realisation breaking over them, and we were all saying "They should totally kiss", etc. (not expecting it at all, it was just that the atmosphere was completely charged) and they did! They had a full on (sloppy) make-out session! It was brilliant, especially because the main character then went and got the main female love interest!!!!)
2: I probably shouldn't be able to identify Hugh Laurie through a shot of his chin and neck.
That is all.
Summary: The boys in Under A Beech Tree have been asking me to write them the purely altruistic purpose of getting me over my writer's block (where instead of not being able to think of things to write I am unable to write either well or quickly). Also because Coke wanted to meet Benny. This took entirely much longer than it should have, but I love them so it's okay.

Summary: John's therapist has determined that blogging isn't helping him rehabilitate. It is her decision that John needs to do something to supplement writing or he won't accept that adventure isn't part of his life anymore. It's a pity John finds drawing quite boring - mostly.
Original Prompt: By sostrangechild on my fic "Not Quite Safe" here: "John takes up drawing as a hobby in the little time he gets to himself. Tiring of drawing trees, the kettle, and the chemistry apparatus, he begins to draw Sherlock when the man is deep in thought, and won't move for days. Being this focused, he doesn't notice John at first, but discovers John's sketchbook a few days later. He routinely steals it from there in. :)"
Notes: This didn't turn out quite what sostrangechild was expecting, methinks. And it was prompted about 6 months ago now, so just a little late, but I know that sostrangechild had to spend today doing lovely fun things like tedious and boring assignments all day, so this is to make her day just a little brighter, hopefully (given it's not exactly what's expected, but the prompt is there! Just not... obvious...). Strange, this is for you!
Also, I do imagine the stolen picture would look like this, but author's rules say look at it after reading.

( Now, as requested, a picspam of miscellaneous and possibly slightly dubious content. )
Summary: Little ficlet inspired by the idea of and my research into the gates of horn and ivory. It's also reminiscent of the Blood heirachy in Anne Bishop's 'The Black Jewels' series and the idea of cloisters gone bad. Written in 15 minutes, the first four lines are taken from a translation of Book 6 of Virgil's 'Aeneid'.

Summary: This was originally a James, Sirius and Remus fic, but the names changed (except for Jim's) and they somehow became original characters! I think I may have fallen slightly in love with them. Anyway, the idea came to me from a Cyanide and Happiness comic. Love 'em.

Title: Not Quite Safe
Summary: Quick fill for a prompt – the prompt was something along the lines of ‘with all that running they do there has to be some dragging along by the hand’. So here we have Sherlock and John – after episode three, of course!

Title: Chapter One

With a not omniscient headmistress there are no staff members able to help, and those who belong to the snake house must band together to fight the opposing force – a force that looks remarkably like their expected future. With the entire house looking to Draco for protection and external guiding forces making increasing appearances, future prospects for the snakes look slim, no matter what Potter says.

Summary: Well, I had no life and decided it would be fun to create hypothetical timetables for imaginary boys! I then based the story around the timetables, and have finally decided that some things may make more sense to you lovely readers if you were able to look at what I was! Especially for this next chapter. So here we are!
