Author has written 16 stories for Sherlock.
"In a Pinch": I heard about this "holiday" on National Public Radio and, it being a "B" word, of course I had to write a 221B.
"One-Shot Sherlock Story": Isaiddangerous found this product, Shot Glass Chess. It really exists. Then of course we got to thinking ... and writing ... and editing ...and posting ... a Grace Hammer story (see comments about the series below.)
"Resolution": Written and posted New Year's Eve 2012-2013. If ever Sherlock were going to be supportive of something John were doing, it would probably be something to do with music. Or not. This story is a one-shot, complete. Update 1/1/13: Slightly different but much improved ending, thanks to help from i said dangerous.
"221B: Compatibility": Just idle wonderings about how John and Sherlock would come out on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. I don't have access to the actual test, which is kind of a bigger deal, but a quickie version can be found at humanmetrics(dot)com, similarminds(dot)com, and personality-testing(dot)info. Curiously, like Sherlock, I am also an INTJ. Now, where's my John? This story is complete.
"Mischief Night": Sherlock-Grace spinoff story, takes place after the as-yet unfinished "John" (i.e. after both Sherlock and John are back at 221B post-fall). Inspired by my daughter's Halloween costume, and written for her as a letter I sent to her at fall school camp. It was a hit with her and her friends. In fact, it inspired her to start writing Sherlock stories herself, much to her teacher's delight.
"When I Say Run" (working title): Ten chapters, complete. The story is in beta now but I am somewhat dissatisfied with it so it may take awhile to surface. It takes place during and after "A Scandal in Belgravia", and reasonable familiarity with that episode is required to follow the story. Like "Just a Lab Tech" and "Delivery for Mr Holmes," the central idea is that there was more going on behind and between the scenes of the episode. Unfortunately the intricacy of that episode makes my story too complex too.
"The Reviewer": A 221B format short. Admit it: if you had a tempting "B" word like that to use, you would have written it too. One reader kidded me that this piece is self-aggrandizing. Well, yeah, but I'd hoped that the tongue in cheek tone would come through.
"The Debt": A 221B format short. I have tried to imagine what must have gone through Sherlock's head in making preparations for his fall. I see him as terribly sad about the pain he will be causing, especially to John, but determined and focused on what he clearly must do. In this story I put that together with what I think is a glaring omission in the canon (although it provides fertile ground for fan fiction!) As usual, the site counts my words differently from the way Word does. This time I did a hand count and it is truly 221 words.
"Break-in at 221B": Lighter stuff, based on a suggestion from my son. Sherlock's library books' topic is a nod to the 5-sigma discovery of the Higgs boson this week. In the months prior to Reichenbach Fall, Sherlock would definitely want to be brushing up on the topic in anticipation of the announcement. This story is complete.
"The Little Game": As opposed to The Great Game, right? My first 221B story, 221 words long, the last one starts with B. It really is 221 words, despite the count shown on the story header. This story is complete.
"Delivery for Mr. Holmes": Along with 'Truth or Dare', this is my personal favorite (excuse me, favourite). I especially like how it seems to fit with (my understanding of) the canon. This story is now complete. It's also my most popular.
"The Visitor": Plausible that Sherlock would carry taxonomic keys around in his head? About as plausible that he has the entire Heathrow flight schedule there. Me, I have to use www antnest co uk/types pdf and Expedia. And, yeah, as far as I can tell, Lasius niger is indeed something he could find in a London kitchen. This story is complete.
"Alex and the Gordian Knot": Alex is a composite of several real children I know and the things they really have done, taken a little more to the extreme. About time Sherlock learned that not all intelligence struts around calling attention to itself, or even is immediately recognizable. This story is complete.
"Just a Lab Tech": I want to like Sherlock more, but the Christmas scene just gets in the way. I had to find a way that he had a really, really good reason to be so awful. And a decent one to save Molly from it, too. Do you like my solution? This story is complete; you know how it goes from here. It was the first I wrote and posted, but has turned out to be fairly popular.
The Grace Hammer Series: This is a set of stories featuring Grace Hammer, a character I initially created based on myself, although she later had to evolve to accommodate more elaborate events. I've removed several of these stories from the site because I prefer that some people I know IRL, who have become aware of my fanfiction activity, not read them. I have left "Mischief Night" and "One-Shot Sherlock Story" up, and plan to post future Grace stories written with a wider audience in mind. Currently this includes "Going Home": Fourth in the Sherlock-Grace series. Sherlock visits Grace in London, but their attempts to have a little relaxing time off get interrupted with another challenge. Sherlock is a bit slow in understanding what it all means. Note that there is a new, I think better, Chapter 1 version as of Dec. 8. I accidentally posted the wrong file earlier.
For reference, previous stories included:
"DFW-PDX": First in the Sherlock-Grace series. Grace meets Sherlock at an American airport. Their initially cool conversational exchange develops into banter, and then interest. Things begin to simmer.
"Truth or Dare": Second in the Sherlock-Grace series.
I said dangerous and I had so much fun working together to bring DFW-PDX in that we did a SEQUEL! Yes, Grace gets some more chances to hang with Sherlock. Excuse me, I meant to say that Sherlock has the great good fortune to have the opportunity to get to know Grace better, and she graciously indulges him.
"The Mission": Third in the Sherlock-Grace series. With momentum from "DFW-PDX" and "Truth or Dare", I said dangerous and I wrote a third in the series. Entirely Grace's POV this time, she joins him post-fall, providing logistical support and background research for his activities dismantling Moriarty's worldwide criminal network. Unfortunately, as you can imagine, Sherlock sucks as a boss, especially when he tries to. Grace gets fed up just about the time Sherlock realizes he actually needs her help. Things really get complicated when she joins him on a live mission and things do not go at all as planned. Yup, it's up to her to save the day. This one is much darker than the first two. More of Sherlock's unattractive side, hopefully to humorous effect. Balanced by some sweet romance (you knew it was coming!)
