Author has written 2 stories for Sherlock.

Lee. American. Interests other than spewing writing into the 90% of Sturgeon's Law include spewing art into the 90% of Sturgeon's Law. Hey, everyone else is polluting the internet with creative garbage-- I'll be damned if I don't have my chance as well!

That said, I apologize in advance! Enter at your own risk! Your lack of self-preservation is mildly distressing, but your courage admirable. I salute you.

I can also be found as ResidentBunburyist on Tumblr. Hit me up if you're bored. I'm always up for a conversation. (Fandom-related, I make Sherlock playlists, which tend to influence everything that I write. So that's cool? Come trade music with me?)

It wasn't until that moment, when the dazed man in the practical black jacket came pushing through the crowd and into her arms, that she understood why she had been drawn outside St. Bart's that day. Minor character POV on John during, and after, The Fall.

The Easy Way by Garmonbozia reviews
Dying was the simplest thing in the world. Getting rid of all the people who would never allow you to die... that's another matter entirely. The hardest work Jim did before the Fall was getting the other players to heed their exit lines. [A birthday present, for somebody called Zoe, who has a great friend called Eden.

Sexy by Garmonbozia reviews
The messages that dragged Sherlock through that first Great Game always sounded that little bit like flirting. And it's not that Jim regrets it, exactly... But it was never meant to happen that way. - Fulfilling a prompt from the lovely Resident Bunburyist. Loving this tumblr thing. T for language

Holmes:Moriarty by Garmonbozia reviews
Jim's first client job is Sherlock's first real case. The worst of Sherlock's addiction runs parallel with the worst of Jim's boredom. Five years before they ever met, already they're closer than they realize. If it wasn't for all the symbolic art and sex-starved thieves and dead bodies piled up between them, maybe they'd see that.

Jim From The Hospital by Garmonbozia reviews
Or 'The Courtship of Sherlock's Coroner'. When Jim went after Molly Hooper, it was never so much a seduction as a military operation. Planned with precision and exactitude. Well, sort of. There's things, like Plan B, like Molly turning out to be lovely, like Chronic Accent Insecurity, you just can't plan for. - Will be a three-shot. For Resident Bunburyist, who knows why.

We're All Mad Here by Garmonbozia reviews
Sherlock was beginning to get very tired of sitting by John at the dinner, and of having nothing to do.

Listening By Ear by StillWaters1 reviews
Lestrade figured that anyone who thought John Watson wasn't important, and that Sherlock hadn't changed since meeting him, had to be completely, bloody deaf. Because it was all right there, in every sound Sherlock made. For anyone attentive enough to listen.

Desperate Measures by PantyDragon reviews
There are people in this world who do terrible things, depraved things. There are some cases that even Sherlock Holmes doesn't want to solve. He is human after all, he does have a heart: one he's hidden away, and with good reason. Even from John.

Spiders or Snakes? reviews
Heads in the fridge were not John's breaking point. Corrosive chemicals on his possessions, he could tolerate. But the tarantula is too much. So John the eternally unfettered is afraid of spiders? Interesting... (Of course, don't ask Sherlock to take the case with the asp in the ducts. Snakes, why did it have to be... oh, never mind, he doesn't get the reference anyway.)
