Well, well, well...look what I did! I wrote some words, in order, to make sentences and thoughts! It is a miracle. I've been reading and lurking in Sherlock fandom for over a year, and puttering slowly away at this fic for many many months, so I finally decided to kick myself in the butt and post the first part, eager to motivate myself to finish the other chapters. So, here is chapter one of the first thing I've tried to write in Sherlock fandom. Trying a new fandom feels a little bit like cheating on my loyal Snupin spouse, but I know the boys will understand (feels Snape's icy glare and Lupin's understanding yet judgmental eyes upon me...)

If anyone cares to give this a try, it is over at Ao3:

Title: His Best Man
Author: westernredcedar
Pairing: John/Sherlock
Summary: On day twenty-three, the fog lifts and John figures it out.
Warnings: post-Reichenbach (spoilers, ahoy!), angst, grief, ambiguous confusing relationship, no Sherlock in this part
Rated: This part is PG, later parts will be rated higher
Length: 5800 in this part, estimated 15,000 in all
Notes: Thank you to book7brokemybrain and woldy, who both gave this portion a look-over and made many helpful comments. I have messed with it quite a lot since then, so the errors are all mine.
Huge credit to arianedevere, whose amazing transcripts allowed me to pull lines easily and use them in this piece.
I have most of part two written and will strive to update in a week.

Smooches and hugs to all of you. I'm excited to get back to some writing! *kiss*

Still writing the end, so I may pester you if you have time to look at the next bit. It's been sitting stalled out for way too long, especially since I know exactly what happens...You were SO helpful on this bit. Also, so good to see you!

I'd be happy to beta for you. Just send it over whenever. I'd be glad to help you unstall if you need to bounce ideas. It's my (selfish) pleasure to get to read your fic early! :)
And, oh dear, so many fics, so little time - I just looked at and salivated over your HP fic list on AO3. At least I've already loved up "Depth of Focus", so I can move on to others I don't know yet.

Can't wait to read. Earlier I was filling in for the receptionist for an hour and I was at moonshadow. As a scanned random items for something to you read...you came up first (yay) and then one of 'chart's pieces (yes, mr whip was involved) came up next! Apparently, it's a 'cedar kinda day!

NIM!!! *hugs hard* Aww, nostalgia overload, eh?? Mr. Whip, how I do love thee. And an LMOM icon to boot. *misses the old days*
It's so lovely to see you. Are you a Sherlock fan?

Happy birthday, sweetie! Just left some virtual springtime cupcakes for you over at my journal, but I didn't know if you were still reading the flist. Hope this next year is off to a good start! *hugs* M.
