Author has written 21 stories for Sherlock, Supernatural, and Les Misérables.

I'm esplanade. Sometimes I write things. Sometimes I fill prompts if I'm bored. Other times I agonize over one Thing for months and then never want to see it again.

I mostly write for the Sherlock fandom.

I save all my reviews in a wordpad file because they make my day much better.

You can find me over at ao3 under the same name as well.

And I'm on Tumblr as thenightisland

The Impractical Garden reviews
"He only ever referred to it as an experiment, and it was true that he seemed to treat the gardens with a scientific detachment rather than anything resembling proper care. He would often let plants go without water just to see how long they could survive; others he would drown. There were some that he cared for with devotion, but which plants received this care changed mostly with

Childhood and Other Things That Hurt You reviews
"People always think of a sunrise as a timed event that you can pinpoint to the second, when the reality is that it is a slow progression from darkness to light."

It Had to Be You reviews
The boy gave him no greeting. He only continued to stare silently at the road ahead of them. John shifted in his seat, growing uncomfortable in the silence. "Sherlock, huh?" The boy nodded. "That's an odd name." "John, was it? That's rather pedestrian."

Not Always 1895 reviews
"I have long since established that I am not where I once was. So would you be so kind as to enlighten me? What year is it?" "It's 2014." "Say that again." "2014?" The man's smile widened. "Oh, and here I was worried that it would be a dull evening."

The Audience reviews
"How do you show kindness and honor in marble eyes? How do you convey the shade of blue when all you have to work with is white? And how on earth do you carve out lips, knowing that they cannot answer you when you speak?"

In which Grantaire is drunk and has watched far too many classic movies, and it is turned to adorable results.

The Still World reviews
"The first time Sherlock Holmes stopped the world, he was seventeen...And while some days he relished in the solitude, others the emptiness of the world was so staggering that he despised it...He began to resent the ability, wishing instead only for a mind that was not in a constant state of attempted self-destruction. Then one day, the world stopped at someone else's hands."

Laid Bare reviews
"I suppose it comes as no surprise that I always rather detested grand romantic gestures. They struck me as unnecessary and contrived, feeble attempts at desperately holding together relationships, most of which should have been allowed to fall apart."

The Bright Resemblance
Some New Year's fluff, which is getting posted early since I won't be in town to post it then. This is technically a sequel to Each Other Now Embrace, but they can definitely be read as stand-alone fics.

Each Other Now Embrace
Holiday fluff! This is technically a precursor to the fic called The Bright Resemblance, but both of them can be read separately. I am posting all the holiday fics now since I will be out of town for a while. Happy holidays, everyone.

I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm reviews
You know I cannot resist holiday fluff. I wanted to write two parallel stories, one happy, one not so happy. This is the former. Both stories exist separate of each other. This one is set in a hypothetical post-Scandal Christmas. I am posting all of the various Christmas fics now because I will be out of town for a while.

A Merry Little Christmas reviews
You know I cannot resist holiday fics. I wanted to write two parallel stories, one happy, one not so happy. This is the latter, but I promise it's happy eventually. I can't write something for the holidays that's sad all the way through. That would be mean. Both stories exist separate of each other. I am posting all of the Christmas fics now because I will be out of town.

The Last Good Kiss reviews
Some Post-Reichenbach angst that I've had saved on my computer for so long that I'd forgotten about it. There's a bit at the end that references a part from the story "The Naval Treaty." I think my original intention was to write something with much less dialogue than usual, since that's usually what I bank my stories on. Something happier coming soon, god willing.

Heaven Enough reviews
wordsthatkeepyouhome and ineffableboyfriends wanted some guardian angel!Sherlock, and I wasn't going to pass up a chance to write something for one of my favorite fanartists. It's atypical of what I usually do, and I'm much more suited to happier stories, but I tried. The post/tags in question:

Forgive this quick, single draft, obligatory Halloween fic. It serves no real purpose except I felt like I had to write something for this nice little holiday.

All My Years of Sight reviews
Post-Great Game AU in which they blow up the pool and John is hospitalized, severely injured and blinded. First fic I wrote, despite not putting it on here till now. I have written and rewritten and will never be satisfied with it. I forbade myself from going over it again for the hundredth time. So here it is. *headdesk*

Calls Received reviews
A post on Tumblr said: "You guys what if in S3 they show a flashback from after the fall when someone inevitably finds Sherlock's phone and it becomes a weird echo of Scandal so instead of Sherlock asking John for Irene's phone back it's John asking Lestrade for Sherlock's." This is the result.

Aisle Six reviews
Idea from this prompt from ilegzz on Tumblr: "Ok. So sherlock and john meet at a Tesco. Sherlock lives on his own and has NO IDEA whats the deal with all the milk brands and types and he knows mycroft told him something about them… Then John comes in and tells him something like "u should get this one" And walks away… Sherlock then stalks John all the time while at the Tesco."
