Author has written 37 stories for Sherlock.

I adore what the writers and actors -- heck, the whole BBC -- have done with Sherlock. It makes me so happy I could bite someone. Oops. Well, John Watson will do that for me.

On a more informative note, my name is Wendy, I'm paid to write non-fiction by day (health and wellness mostly), though not yet paid to write slash and original fic by night. I'm so glad I've found John and Sherlock, this wonderful fandom, and glorious readers who take the time to share their informative, happy-making, or funny thoughts after they've read a story. I find people are generally less effusive about my articles on flu shots or pap tests. Go figure.

Excuse me, I feel a slash coming on.

Long Time Coming reviews
Get John and Sherlock engaged they said. It'll be fun they said... Yes, well the first 'incident' occurred six days, eleven hours, and forty-two minutes before they got married; the last about twenty seconds before they walked down the aisle. What happened in between even I don't quite believe. I'm Aurora Aurelia Abbington, the skull on the mantle, and I have another story to tell.

A Fit of Pique: Vexation, Umbrage, and Discontent reviews

Voice Over reviews
Sherlock is maaaad at John. So mad he's not speaking to him. As in not speaking. Did you hear that part? About Sherlock? Being silent? Do you know how hard that is for him? But it's fine. It's all fine. Because John's going to talk for both of them. He's going to relate. Discuss. Describe. John's going to narrate *everything.*

This Time No—Forgiveness reviews
It was Sherlock's fault. It usually is. And though he'll ask forgiveness for what he's done, for the very first time John will say, 'This time no, Sherlock. This time, never.' And maybe, just maybe, John Watson is going to mean it.

The Heat of Healing reviews
Fibrin. Collagen. Plasma. Blood. Crutches. Canes. Plasters. Slings. For a little while this might have been the tone poem for 221B. There was a brief, strange period early in their first year when one man, the other, or both were hurt, half-healed, or tending the other's wounds. And it was *wonderful.*

Mehndi reviews
Mine. Yours. Boy Toy: Bracelets on one detective-y wrist. Hot Stuff. Kiss Me. Bite Me: Bracelets on the other. But it was the mehndi swirled all over Sherlock's body that gave John pause. Lots of dry-mouthed pause. And a desire to take the case. *Now.*

How to Kill John Watson, Easy Peasy reviews

Jerk reviews
Sherlock is drunk. John is not. Regent's Park is empty. And it's a Tuesday. "So are you going to wank for me John Hamish Watson-Holmes?" The man so named thought about the answer briefly, then replied. "Yes, my espoused, I do believe I am."

Shhhhhh! reviews
Their trousers were at their ankles, the library was quiet, and John's motivation was clear: For every multi-syllable word he used correctly, Sherlock would reward him with one balls-deep thrust. Quick…what's a six syllable word for oh-dear-god-yes?

Narcissus reviews
Sherlock's got laryngitis. John decides to soothe his poor wheezy sweetie. Of course he does. It's entirely natural for him to do so with a little sexing. Of course it is. Making love to his lover whispering sweet, sweet nothings to him…in his own voice.

Tooth & Nail reviews
John Watson, doctor, soldier, dental phobe, is stoned. Rat-arsed. High as a horny kite. And if he doesn't stop dancing on the coffee table he's going to do himself a mischief. Yet it seems the only way to get John off that table is to, um, get John off.

The Blown Fuse reviews
The entire idea of Sherlock is noise. He's six feet of sassy retort, seventy-two and one half inches of verbal brimstone. In short, the man is mostly mouth. So why, why, why was his silence now filling the cold room with heat? Slash/Humor.
