Wrote another short Sherlock fic, this one for a Stag Night challenge. Here it is!

Title: Not Literal Shelves
Author: [livejournal.com profile] westernredcedar
Summary: Stag night AR; as the night goes on, Sherlock wants to make sure John's metabolism is balanced by some food, and he knows this fantastic fish shop off the Marylebone Road, where the owner always gives him extra portions...
Pairings: John/Sherlock, John/Mary (implied), Sherlock/OCs
Rated: R
Length: 4000 words
Tags/Warnings: first kiss, first time, cheating, jealousy, so much drinking, adorable drunk idiots, sexuallyactivegay!Sherlock, bisexual!John, what else could I helped him put up some shelves mean
Notes: Written for Let's Write Sherlock Challenge 14: On Thousand Stag Nights on tumblr.
I refered to [livejournal.com profile] arianedevere fabulous transcripts constantly to be sure I was on target with canon, and got all my quotes correct. The fabulous [livejournal.com profile] bk7brokemybrain beta'ed, and wonderful [livejournal.com profile] vilestrumpet Brit-picked and beta'ed!

*hugs* Hope you are all enjoying summer!

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*

Well, I wrote a whole big Sherlock thing (well, big for me, almost 9000 words), all canon-compliant angst based on The Sign of Three and lots of meta I've been reading. If you are interested, it's finished now and posted over at Ao3. SO MUCH FUN TO BE WRITING AGAIN!

Title: Adagio, in Baker Street (takes you to the beginning, or here's a direct link to part 4 and part 5)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] westernredcedar
Summary: "I can dance perfectly well, thank you." "You cannot." "And you are some sort of expert, are you?"
Word count: ~8900
Rated: PG-13 (just a whole lotta UST and confusion)
Pairings/Characters: John/Mary, John/Sherlock (sort of), Molly's in there too, and now Lestrade, Donovan, and Dimmock as well
Warnings: Person in confused love with someone else is still planning to get married...
Notes: You should be aware that I have been rolling around in the meta of loudest_subtext_in_television and abrae, and that this work is definitely born of their interpretations of canon at this point. Whee! I also owe [livejournal.com profile] bk7brokemybrain much credit for getting me completely obsessed right now, and encouraging this piece.

*hugs all around* Hope you are all well!

So, I've been writing constantly, more chapters of the Sherlock thingy I posted before, if anyone cares to check it out: Adagio, in Baker Street. It mostly a big pile of UST based on the tossed off idea in canon that Sherlock taught John to waltz. There are now three chapters, and 4 and 5 are written in my mind, I know where I'm going. I need to keep my pace up because I'm on a week break now, and I know I will not be able to write as much when I'm back to work. Chop chop, me.

I've been thinking a lot this week, as I let myself get completely swept up in Sherlock fandom like I haven't since HP first grabbed me and wouldn't let go, about what got me into fandom in the first place. Now I'm seeing parallels all over. Navel-gazing below the cut. )

Hi all! Happy Valentine's, et cetera.

Here's a missing canon scene from The Sign of Three. Aimed for a little casual ficlet, ended up writing 1800 words yesterday. Whee! Anyway, this is my first attempt at imagining how the private waltz lessons between Sherlock and John might possibly have gone down, considering. Because...really? Huh? How?

Title: Adagio, in Baker Street
Author: [livejournal.com profile] westernredcedar
Summary: "I can dance perfectly well, thank you." "You cannot." "And you are some sort of expert, are you?"
Word count: 1836
Rated: PG (just a whole lotta UST and confusion)
Pairings: John/Mary, John/Sherlock (sort of)
Notes: Just a very tantalizing missing canon scene that I imagine will be written many times in many ways. You should be aware that I have been rolling around in the meta of loudest_subtext_in_television and abrae, and that this work is definitely born of their interpretations of canon at this point. Whee! I also owe [livejournal.com profile] bk7brokemybrain much credit for getting me completely obsessed right now, and encouraging this piece.

I've been lost in Sherlock fandom again for a while, mostly thanks to [livejournal.com profile] bk7brokemybrain who hooked me up with some amazing meta about Season 3 and I fell down the rabbit hole and have yet to emerge out the far end. Gah, this damn show. It just can't stop making me want to think about it.
Just a record of my thoughts and interests at the moment, mostly a meta rec )

Well, I finally completed the Sherlock fic I started posting eons ago. I wrapped it up (to my satisfaction for now) in two parts rather than the originally planned three, so this is now finished and can stop living in the back of my brain like a nagging, gnawing thing.
In light of new canon in Season 3, I should point out that the title is from Sherlock's quote in The Great Game, "Putting my best man onto it right now," rather than any wedding related shenanigans or other meanings of "Best Man."
Anyhoo, it's over at Ao3 if you are interested.

Title: His Best Man
Author: westernredcedar
Pairing: John/Sherlock
Summary: On day twenty-three, the fog lifts and John figures it out.
Tags/Warnings: post-Reichenbach, angst, grief, ambiguous relationship under development, what if John figures it out, not Season 3 compliant
Rated: PG
Length: ~11,000
Notes: bk7brokemybrain helped me so much with both parts, and woldy beta'ed on chapter one as well. Huge credit to arianedevere, whose amazing transcripts allowed me to pull lines easily and use them in this piece.

*hugs*

I'm having a weird, emotional night due to various goings-on in RL. All fine, just has me a bit off-kilter and so I'm in the mood to feel some solid footing under me here. How about spouting forth about Sherlock, Season 3? That's all very concrete and fun! Therefore:

Spoilers and Blathering Found Here )

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*
