Hi all! I wrote another little angsty Sherlock story based on "The Sign of Three." Here it is!

Title: Out of Time
Author: [livejournal.com profile] westernredcedar
Summary: Somerset is a lovely place for a wedding, but what John hadn't accounted for was the getting everyone there.
Pairings and Characters: John/Sherlock (complicated), John/Mary (getting married), John/Sholto (implied)
Rated: PG-13
Word Count: ~3100
Tags and warnings: someone marrying someone while being crazy in love with someone else, canon compliant, ANGST!, bisexual John, Stonehenge, road trip

Notes: ariane_devere wrote an adorable story about Mary's hen night, The Hen Night and in the author notes she pointed out the unlikely fact that John and Mary's wedding would be in Somerset (as it is, according to the invitation), yet Sherlock would still be in London that morning. Well, I took this weird fact as a fic writing challenge! So here is my first attempt at explaining why this odd geography is in the show, and guess what the answer is? Johnlock! What a surprise!
I took a couple of liberties with the timing- the canon invitation says that the wedding is at noon, but honestly? Noon, and then dinner and dancing into the night? Is this a ten hour wedding? So I changed the time to 4:00.
Also, I think it is possible to read this story as part of the same canon-compliant universe as Adagio, in Baker Street, if you want to.

Hi dear flist! *hugsallaround*

Lovely fic, C. You've really got John's voice, both their voices, down. (I'm not sure what to say about the content except ouch.)

Appreciated the double meaning of the title, too. Enjoyed! M.

Thank you, Maggie! I'm touched you gave it a try. I enjoy trying to hear John and Sherlock jabbering on in their own voices, very different than hearing voices in HP based on written text rather than TV actor voices. Also,, sorry about the ouchy content. I'm enjoying re-engaging my angsty side!

Lovely to have a few moments to actually participate in fandom again, and see you!
