Author has written 4 stories for Sherlock.

What to put on a profile? Here you go...

I am a great fan of BBC Sherlock - quite a mature one, which doesn't make me less obsessed.

My fanfiction name is not very creative and quite obvious, but after reading loads of stories and never finding them again, I decided that it was time to choose a name - in bed at nearly midnight, not the most creative time of the day (at least not for pennames). Maybe one day I'll change it.

Sherlock is the only reason why I'm here. I once started as merely a reader to improve my vocabulary and to make the wait for season 3 bearable; and then I had been encouraged by my dear beta to give writing a try. I had never thought I'd be able to do it, but it turned out that I was (thanks to a wonderful and patient beta, of course) and that I loved it. Well, now I have turned from a reading addict into a writing addict.

I would never write Johnlock, because I don't ship it. The reason for it is simple:the authors and characters don't ship it too. As easy as that. I love the friendship issue between John and Sherlock, though, and I think that's enough of an area to explore.

I generally try to stick to the BBC canon as much as possible, although I find that my current story is a bit diverting. It was supposed to fit in between S2E2 and S2E3, but I'm not all that sure if it still would just like that.

Those of you who might be afraid that Shot in the Dark could turn into Sherlolly, rest assured, it won't. No unusual pairings, none that can't be found in the series. I'm just playing a bit with Sherlock and Molly's friendship. She's the one having a crush on Sherlock and he knows it. Full stop.

English is not my mother-tongue, so I apologize for all the mistakes that may occur in my stories, reviews and profile.

Thanks for visiting my profile!

If you happen to read my stories, leave a comment, please. Thanks!

Disclaimer: I don't own Sherlock, it belongs to the BBC! I have only borrowed the characters for my stories, because I admire them so much!

A Reckoning by librarianmum reviews
So, this is the life of Molly Hooper. Humble laboratory assistant, lonely cat owner, friend, partner-in-crime, companion, sometimes lover...just an ordinary woman who always mattered.

Simple Truths by GhyllWyne reviews
"It's raining, I'm crying. Sherlock is dying" My take on what happens after John finds Sherlock with a bullet in his chest in Magnusson's flat. Missing scenes from "His Last Vow".

Never mind the cough by Rephis reviews
Something dangerous has worked its way into John's system, and is slowly but inexorably ravaging the doctor from inside. How long will it take him and Sherlock to understand just how serious the situation is? Too long, perhaps. Sick!fic, no slash.

After the Storm by librarianmum reviews
Sherlock is back and John should be pleased... but it's never that simple, is it? Follows on immediately from Lighting Fires, as Sherlock struggles to return, John struggles to adapt, Greg and Mrs Hudson struggle to forgive and Mycroft struggles to make his brother understand. Focuses on Sherlock's POV of view on the events in Lighting Fires and afterwards, so read that first.

An army anecdote by Rephis reviews
Told from a point of view of someone who had no idea who he was, his story was just a sad anecdote, just another proof that happy endings are not common in the real world. There's only so much one can take before finally breaking and becoming someone completely different, even if a part of them is still there. Post-Reichenbach AU, no slash.

All that matters by Rephis reviews
The case would have been difficult enough without all the fuss around it, and the fact that it was so personal for both John and Sherlock only made it harder. Unfortunately, sometimes even the best need others' help. No slash. Post-Reunion. A tale about an everlasting friendship.

Are You Alright? by kotane reviews
One-shot. Texts and phone calls only. John got wrapped in a hostage-taking and gets to communicate with Sherlock in order to solve the situation. (yup, my summary sucks.) Rated for (very little) mild language and alusion to violence. Please review )

Coming Home by Haelia reviews
The man to whom this shadow belonged was dead, long dead, three years dead. Lestrade had seen the body, the broken face, the crushed ribcage. He had read the autopsy report, the death certificate. He had attended the funeral. Sherlock Holmes was dead. Sherlock Holmes was not sitting here before him now. Post-Reichenbach. Reviews may contain spoilers. ON HIATUS

Side-lined by sevenpercent reviews
Sequel to Collateral Damage. Sherlock is in Rehab; John is trying to stop him from bouncing off the walls, as Mycroft goes hunting for Moriarty. Pre Scandal in Belgravia, but doing much to explain the subtext running through that episode.

Cold Fingers, Warm Hearts by Cumberbatch Critter reviews
Sherlock can't even catch a fever like a normal person. His symptoms appear too quickly, get worse too fast, and John, who's fighting a sore throat and the shivers himself, knows it will probably get worse, for both of them, before it gets better.

Shot in the Dark reviews
The revelations about Sherlock's abduction as a boy are troubling each of the three men, Mycroft, Sherlock and John. Sherlock wants to know the whole truth, but Mycroft has sworn never to tell anybody anything, certainly not to Sherlock. A shot in the dark pushes everyone to their limits... Just read [and review :-)]. Reviews contain spoilers! Cover by Rephis! (No pairings!)

Sherlock and John are recovering from the nerve agent poisoning. However, many questions have remained open and many new have been risen, most of all where the suspicious petri-dish came from and what Mycroft's role is in all this. Sequel to Dangerous Mould.

Gentlemen in Bath reviews
Sherlock is sitting in the bathtub - fully dressed - and refuses to get out. Little domestic (no slash) between John and Sherlock with an unexpected outcome. Just a funny little one-shot that crossed my mind, inspired by the picture of the bathtub from Sherlock and John's bathroom that appeared on the internet a couple of days ago.

What mould in the world can scare Sherlock Holmes? This is death coming in petri-dishes! Will John be able to save a poisoned Sherlock? No slash, lots of h/c!
