Author has written 17 stories for Harry Potter, and Sherlock.

Welcome!

I'm Jolie - an avid fan of Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings, and Sherlock Holmes (most notably the BBC "Sherlock" series).

I currently write for the "Sherlock" fandom, specialising in Sherlock whumps, Holmes Brothers mindgames, and tentative Sherlolly.

I am a canon-maniac. I love and respect the original books/films and their authors. I love exploring side streets and missing moments. I don't enjoy picturing anything that couldn't have happened. I don't do AU, crossovers, porn - nothing the original authors wouldn't approve of (or so I hope!). I also used to say I do no slash, but for some reason, there's a Johnlock fic in my list of works. Not sure how that happened. (Sherlock doesn't know either.) But it's clearly marked, so it can easily be avoided.

If you're a fan of BBC "Sherlock", too, and feel a bit at a loss where to find the best canon-compliant stories, check out our Community, BBC "Sherlock" for Canon Addicts.

Feedback of all sorts is always welcome.

Smoke & Mirrors by 3seconds reviews
What motivated Sherlock to kick the drug habit and invent his consulting detective position? What if it wasn't one big event, but a series of small ones (the way life usually works)? And what if one of those little events was a conversation with a man who was dying? ...A bit of canon-compliant backstory.

Something Borrowed by GhyllWyne reviews
Begins in the month after the wedding, and goes to the end of HLV. Follows Something Broken but will stand alone. One caution: Not everything is what it seems in the beginning. Sherlock would add: It's dangerous to draw conclusions without sufficient data. There were a lot of motives left unexplained in the broadcast episode. This story's point is to fix that.

John Watson woke up in the dark with a headache, the taste of sweetened copper in his mouth, and Sherlock snarling threats in his left ear.

Collateral Damage by Fang's Fawn reviews
Sherlock was initially jealous of Major James Sholto, but when the major opens his eyes to what exactly Sherlock means to John, Sherlock becomes frightened instead. Sherlock doesn't approve of collateral damage, either...at least, not if it involves John. Character study; spoilers for TSoT.

The Case of the Unexpected Guest by Codswallop8 reviews
A small and fluffy case-fic. Lestrade finds a pet bird at a crime scene, but he likes birds, so he delivers it to Sherlock and John rather than having it euthanized. Sherlock is fascinated. (Originally published April 2011.)

John Plays Hooky by chappysmom reviews
Didn't he deserve a day to himself for a change? A day to do what he wanted? A few hours without being chided and bossed and ordered about by his brilliant but annoying flatmate? With no sniffling children or worried mothers? No police lights or crime scene tape? No chaos? Just … sunshine and a chance to relax for a change?
