Author has written 87 stories for Sherlock.
You can call me MLC or, as my lovely French friend Lucy36 calls me Camé de Feuille d'érable. Sadly I do not speak french, but thought this was beyond cool:)
I am obnoxiously Canadian - which is rather an oxymoron since we are usually apologetic and full of self depreciating humour - so you can read into that what you wish. I am terribly insecure - although I am getting better! I still cannot believe that anyone wants to read my writing BUT to those of you that do I am ever so grateful! I am especially grateful to johnsarmylady & jack63kids who love my stories & became my friends and support me in more ways than I can possibly say!
I write a mix of styles & am always experimenting. I LIKE reviews (nice ones - don't mind constructive - don't like criticism to be mean!)
I do NOT have a problem with slash, most of my stories are. I am rather enjoying writing slash although I do like exploring the friendship angle between John & Sherlock.
I post to AO3 as well - under the same pen name.
I also have a Tumblr account mapleleafcameo - but I am not a regular user there I am just starting to figure out how to use the darn thing!
And because I love technology so much & understand it so well I am now on twitter - same name MapleleafCameo - why change a good thing? (This whole sentence is sarcastic by the way:D)
Big Thanks you to my BFFF's johnsarmylady, jack63kids, Ennui Enigma, mattsloved1 & Lucy36
Here's a list of my Stories to help you find what you are looking for.
If you only pick one story read either Tea or The Hand Your Dealt (not slash) or Cruel as Winter or Celestial Bodies Suite (slash) - look below for description.
