2-26-13: Hey guys! It's been awhile since I posted anything on here, so I guess I'll give you an update. I have worked on Forced. Apparently it was a bad cliffhanger... Oops. So sorry :) My beta (whom I live with - its very scary to live with your beta...) is poking me about it, but lately I've been getting more ideas for an original series I want to do. I will devote some due attention to the lovely residents of 221b however. Also, Loyalties Divided got a massive edit and update. I actually think I'm within 2-3 chapters of finishing that story. Anyway, I also have at least two new ideas floating around my head and my beta (Azolean) has introduced me to some anime that might get some attention from me in the near future. Oh, and Numb3rs. So yeah, while I plan to finish my WIPs for Sherlock Holmes, I might be devoting some time and attention to a few new categories as well. All the favorites, follows, and reviews are appreciated!
Side note: I might actually be publishing a collection of poems before the year is out, so that is another project I have on my plate. I'll keep you guys posted on that.
To some lovely authors deserving of some time and attention. Please read some of their works too!

Rather neat little idea I came up with, mostly for a certain friend of mine who is working on her first Sherlock stories. Follow the instructions and you can make tons of interesting little prompts.
Grab three pieces of paper and three bags- plastic or paper, doesn't matter.
On the first paper write names of characters- for Sherlock Holmes stories you can include Holmes, Watson, Mycroft, Lestrade, Mrs. Hudson, Irregulars, Mary, Moriarty, Inspectors, and whomever else you wish. I also recommend having a few random ones too, such as criminal, constable, or client. Cut out the words and fold them and put them in the first bag. Label it characters.
On the second paper, list settings such as 221B, hospital, pall mall, cemetery, on a boat, at night, at a train station, etc. You can come up with tons of these if you name cities, seasons, modes of transportation, geographical features, and buildings. Again, cut them, put them in the bag, and label it settings.
The last paper use for prompt words such as promise or lie, or for events such as accident or injury. Livejournal's Watson Woes has some really nice prompt tables for this purpose. Cut, put in bag, and label events/prompts.
Now draw one piece from each bag. You might get something funny, such as Lestrade faints at cemetery or something angsty, such as night Mary dies. These are great for the 221B's and fun for other categories as well- just change the characters and settings to match whatever category you want to do.
Though originally I had this section much longer, now I will only provide a link to a website I built and designed to house the massive amount of prompts I had gathered:
If you had killed Watson you would not have gotten out of this room alive. -Sherlock Holmes, The Adventure of the Three Garridebs.
He gave no explanations and I asked for none. By long experience I had learned the wisdom of obedience. -John Watson, The Adventure of the Illustrious Client
Our official detectives may blunder in the matter of intelligence, but never in that of courage... London dangers were the privilege of the London Force. -John Watson, The Adventure of the Red Circle.
I give you my word of honour- and I have never broken it in my life- that I will take a cab straight to the police station and give you away, unless you let me share this adventure with you. -John Watson, Adventure of Sir Charles Augustus Milverton.
A man with so large a brain must have something in it. -Sherlock Holmes, The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle
What ineffable twaddle! -John Watson, A Study in Scarlet
Life is commonplace; the papers are sterile; audacity and romance seem to have passed forever from the criminal world. Can you ask me, then, whether I am ready to look into any new problem, however trivial it may prove? -Sherlock Holmes, The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge
"A letter of yours was found in the dead man's pocket, and we know by it that you had planned to pass last night at his house."
You know that it is my greatest joy and privilege to help you. -John Watson, The Devils Foot
There was a curious secretive streak in the man which led to many dramatic effects, but left even his closest friend guessing as to what his exact plans might be. He pushed to an extreme the axiom that the only safe plotter was he who plotted alone. I was nearer to him than anyone else, and yet I was always conscious of the gap between. -John Watson, The Illustrious Client
