Author has written 3 stories for Sherlock, and 12 Monkeys.

Welcome to my profile page, which I'll hopefully expand a bit in future but since I've only just published my first fic ever, there had never been any need to put anything here before...

Before I started working as a Math and English teacher last year, I studied Prehistoric Archaeology, the old American civilizations (like Aztecs, Inca, Maya etc.) and Celtology. I live in Germany, in the Cologne area, and English ist not my first laguage. It's not even my second one (that was Latin, how quaint...).

So I really appreciate all constructive criticism, especially from native speakers, pointing out errors or mistakes or just unidiomatic language use. Even though I've studied it and have read nothing but English novels for about ten years, it's very hard to judge one's own writing (particularly in a foreign language...) So, if you'd like to beta or just give me some advice, that would be absolutely lovely. I love learning! Seriously!

Besides, I'm into reading (I tend to gobble books...), writing and drawing, sewing, knitting and gardening; watching movies and - mostly British - TV series, when I'm not in the creative mood.

You can also find me at AO3, which might sometimes be handy - I prefer the site especially for downloading longer stories to my ebook reader, so...

There were 501 days before. These are John's 501 days after Reichenbach... A post-Reichenbach, thoughts, feelings and a clear-up on the loose ends...

Congenial Conclusion reviews
Things happen during the events as chronicled, from John's point of view, in "Closed Record". This is the other side of that story, Sherlock's five hundred and one days after the Fall. Since nothing's ever easy where he is concerned, things will be told in reverse chronological order. Expect glimpses into other characters' lives and thoughts, as well.
