Author has written 13 stories for Sherlock Holmes, and Sherlock.

Jessamy Griffith fell down the rabbit hole of fandom on the 16th of April, 2011. Friends are to blame for that big SHOVE in the back. Apparently a blameless life of inoffensive geekdom wasn't enough. All of Jess's friends gasped when they understood that Jess hadn't ever really written a fanfic or looked at fanart before.

"Why don't you read/look at THIS?" they said. And I was finished. Since that fell day, Jessamy has made up for lost time. Has made thus far one fanart, and is working on a fanfic of a fanfic. Where does it end??

Jessamy prefers the 19th century, though the new Sherlock series is an incredible intellectual turn-on. So, things like Sherlock Holmes (or The Unattainable, as I call him), Richard Sharpe (James Bond of the Peninsular War), Aubrey/Maturin (Sigh...how sweet they are) are right up J.'s street.

Slash? Sure, why not. All the doujinshi in Japan is mostly m/m stuff anyway, and more power to you fangirls, for being such incredible artists and sharing your love! Jessamy is openminded, and likes a good story, regardless of gender, position or fandom.


Stories on Board - by on board, I mean I freaking STILL am not done.

Making the Connection - based on a prompt from the sherlockBBC kinkmeme. Still WIP, both on LJ, AO3, and Fanfic net. Due to a month long 'net free vacation in the middle, it's posted on two parts of the meme.

First section on Prompts Part 17, page 12 - http://sherlockbbc-fic.livejournal.com/10038.html?thread=49734454#t49734454

Second section on the Overflow Post, page 4 - http://sherlockbbc-fic.livejournal.com/8300.html?thread=60749676#t60749676

*New* Fanart for Making the Connection

Two lovely people have done fan art for Making the Connection, both pieces are for Chapter 10. They are NSFW, and spoiler-y for Chapter 10. Read. Then go look!

WhisperElmwood's sketch of HawkJohn and Sherlock (She says unfinished but worth linking nonetheless! It's lovely!) at: http://whisperfanworks.livejournal.com/16729.html

grumpyjumper's painting (with such vibrant colours and iconographic composition! So great) of John and Sherlock at: http://grumpyjumpers.livejournal.com/3454.html

'Study in Slime' is still on hiatus, likely to be so for a long time. I still have plot written and ready, but got a bit burned out. When I finish off or get tired of 'Making the Connection', I'll get back to it. It IS my first fanfic ever after all, who forgets their first? But burned out? yes.

New story to come soon, yes another flipping WIP - Westmoreland. Based on the folk song, a medieval magical-realism AU of John's journey to find and be healed by the Witch of the Westmoreland, a tall pale-eyed man. Does Sherlock have enough power to cleanse John of his cursed wound? Does he have the heart to mend John's?

Ulysses and other tales by Moranion reviews
Sherlock thinks he knows the world, but years pass and the journey is long, and John Watson will always remain a mistery. S/J. Warnings: non-explicit sex, spoilers for The Scandal in Belgravia, brief discussion of theoretical incest. I own nothing.

Shades of Truth, FULL POST by pro-prodigy reviews

The Flight of John Watson reviews
When Sherlock is forced to share his eyrie, he is determined to make the best of it. However, he has no intention of ever pair-mating. It's a pity his body has other ideas. John Watson can't believe his luck when he meets Sherlock Holmes. But who would ever want a flightless Tiercel with PTSD who can't even manage a courtship flight? Wingfic with Omegaverse elements.

Buthal reviews
Every story needs a good, old-fashioned villain. Every legend needs a hero. Every fairy tale has magical curses. Every good adventure story has a man fighting a monster. But villainous monsters, like heroic men, come in many shapes and many sizes, and it is not always easy to tell which is which. (In which here be giants. Twisted fairy tale.)

Making the Connection reviews
It was an experiment. Then it was phonesex. Now it's something unexpected. Sherlock is on detox and bored. He calls a sex line. He gets John. Intrigued, he calls back several times. But the experiment isn't going quite how Sherlock predicted... NOT crack.

Fear and Drugging in Baskerville reviews
John couldn't help but notice that Sherlock never actually apologized for 'drugging' him and locking him the lab at Baskerville. 'Won't happen again,' didn't count, really. That was fine - John was more than capable of getting his own back.

Words Within reviews
The words never come easily to Sherlock, John supposes. The right words never do come easily. They are earned, paid with the heavy gold of shared emotions, experiences, touches given and received. John knows. He hears the word in Sherlock's every action.

Fledgling reviews

The John that Preserves Or The Jammy Devil reviews
Ficlet where John confronts Sherlock about some weird things he's observed. Rips on 'Twilight'. Has fruit preserves. Crack story, and not really a crossover fic, because there are NO vampires.
