Author has written 235 stories for Sherlock, Sherlock Holmes, Hobbit, Book X-overs, and Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
Time I think to update the blurb on my profile!
So, what now? Not a lot has changed, I still love to write Sherlock stuff, and increasingly Hobbit stuff too. Despite my name I have no actual connection to the army, it just seemed like a good name at the time :) Recently I have been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis that has on occasion affected my hands and stopped me writing as much as I would like. Now this isn't a cry for sympathy - this is a great big THANK YOU to my very good friends MapleleafCameo, Mattsloved1, Jack63Kids, MrsPencil, Lucy36, Ennui Enigma, LDLFF and Old Ping Hai who have stuck with me, supported me, encouraged me and not let me give up and feel sorry for myself - without you my friends I would have curled up and hibernated...
That said, I still have self confidence issues, so would ask this - if you find SPaG in my work - let me know by all means, but PLEASE don't do it in reviews - my self confidence and self esteem can't handle the public outing of my lack of abilities! A PM would be great though!
Reviews are important, and because of this I review every story I read, even if it's just one word expressing my thoughts on it (Excellent/Wonderful etc.). And I do read... in fact I will read most Sherlock and Hobbit fics with three notable exceptions - I don't do 'Fem' characters (Fem!Bilbo, Fem!John Fem!Sherlock etc.), I don't do incest (Holmescest, Durincest etc.) and I don't do OC character pairings (John/OC, Sherlock/OC Thorin/OC etc.) - but that aside, if you see a tale you think I might like (yours or anyone else's) please feel free to PM me and let me know! I'm always up for new stuff to read but often don't have the time to go looking...
I write some slash (some mild, some not so...) but also like to write 'adventures', so there's something here (I hope) for all tastes, I suggest you be guided by the rating. Until now I listed all of my stories here, but now I find there are far too many and it would make boring reading - especially as they are added automatically in order of completion - duplication is such a waste of valuable reading and writing time!
What more can I say about me? Not a lot really, there's really not that much to tell. Suffice to say, if I could smuggle John Watson into my house, he'd never escape...
Fellow author cashis has translated the following story into Polish
LDLFF not only inspired Der Rabe, but then kindly translated it into it's native language, German. You can find it here https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10481349/1/Der-Rabe
Cathyjin has translated 10 Uses For A Sheet into Chinese and you can find it here
And my good friend Lucy36 translated my pen-name into French...La militaire de John - thanks honey!!
I commissioned the book cover for Der Rabe from Theridingcropsart
There is a beautiful depiction of winged!John commissioned as a book cover for my tale The Devil on Trial drawn by willietheplaidjacket and she has also completed my commission of Bilbo and Bofur for Because You Have No Home, now used as the book cover for that tale.
Purrlockholmes provided the commission art for Never a Monster's book cover.
I recommend all of these artists if you want to commission a piece - all very talented :D
And if I forget to say so - I own nothing, I make no profit, I just come here to play sometimes...
