Author has written 25 stories for Dexter, and Sherlock.

Ok. I mostly post over on Ao3 these days, which is here: http://archiveofourown.org/users/scuttlesworth - But I'm trying to post here too.

I like Sherlock and Dexter, and what that says about me you're not allowed to say and I prefer not to think. Besides those, lately I've been writing little dribs and drabs about the women of the comic book universes. They seem to terribly underused and poorly described. Men's ideas on how mothers and sisters feel are very, very odd, sometimes, and I like things to make sense.

I really hope you enjoy my writing. Thank you for reading this!

No one has ever stayed with Sherlock longer than a month. At least, no human.

If You Were with Me on the Bridge by Kryptaria reviews
John sent Sherlock away. John's eyes had been entirely cold. That was a strange way to describe them, wasn't it? Temperature-based metaphor standing in for emotions. Messy, not empirical. Emotions have never really been Sherlock's area. Sequel to If You Were Mine.

34 Rules and Two Addendums: Not Gay reviews
Fanfiction, you have broken me. This is Johnlock of the worst kind. I know it's pure dreck but it was soooo easy to write. Which may say more about the inside of my skull than the show. One-Shot. John jots down a disgruntled, rule-formatted internal monologue which starts off Not Gay and ends up being Very Slash. Rating for teh seks. Edit: I said one-shot, didn't I? I lied.

The Movies and Mycroft Holmes reviews
Written for this kinkmeme prompt: Mycroft is forced to review movie proposals. Nobody enjoys this - not Mycroft, not Anthea, not the film board and definitely not the directors... Rated T because some of the movie proposals are rather arthouse and awful. As always, not beta'd so there may be errors.

Pet reviews
Sherlock has never done well with pets. Cautions: when I say "never done well", read "neglect bordering on abuse" and other badness. I've tried not to be graphic, but the general idea is still somewhat horrid.
