Author has written 38 stories for Sherlock, and Buffy: The Vampire Slayer.

Passionate Brit-chick living in the sunny Algarve since 2010 with my man and my boys!

I'm also on AO3, if that is your preference

Huge Buffy fan. Avid reader of Spander since about 1998!

Even bigger (or perhaps obsessive!) Sherlock (BBC) fan! JohnLock shipper. Oh yes!
Plus a bit of Mystrade, if you please.
Not a big fan of AU or crossovers. Depends on subject really.
:)

Happy to beta-read and/or Brit-pick, if required

My Fears Relieved by Hummingbird1759 reviews
After his brother jumped off of St. Bart's, Mycroft thought there was no hope for him... until he received an unexpected visitor. Sequel to "Evolution of Fear" and "A Sociopath's Fears", but can be read alone. Rated T for angst.

The Other One reviews
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's original Sherlock Holmes stories make no reference to a third Holmes brother but Gatiss's character said at the end of final the episode His Last Vow "I'm not given to outbursts of brotherly compassion. You know what happened to the other one."

Five Times John Didn't Notice Sherlock (and one time he did) reviews
Five times out oblivious John Watson didn't notice Sherlock, and one time he really did. A short series of (five plus one) 221B fics, just because. (sorry is some of the word counts seem erratic. Sometimes counts differently to the software I use)

Missed a bit reviews
"John." The single word showed that Sherlock was unimpressed at the insinuation that he had missed anything, let alone something important. - A little something I wrote. Implied Mystrade only. Nothing that needs rating (except perhaps Sherlock's ignorance!)

Fifty Shades of Holmes Brothers reviews
A series of 50 short fics about the changing relationship and dynamics between the Holmes brothers, from Sherlock's birth through to adulthood. No slash but there will be some brother love and tenderness as well as an amount of hatred and bitterness too. Contains mention of drug use. Not one fic per year, just 50 short glimpses, in chronological order. NOW COMPLETE

It's been three years since Sherlock jumped, and John isn't doing so good. Warning for self-harm and suicidal tendencies. Do NOT read if this affects you! (It was intended to be a standalone chapter but...well, something happened!)

Into Darkness reviews
Once upon a time, the Holmes boys found themselves in a situation. This is the story of how the lives of Jim Moriarty and two Holmes men became entangled and how the past came back to haunt them. Rated mature for future chapters (adult content, implied dub-con and child abuse). Will be very AU as far as the past goes.

His Greatest Problem reviews
Sherlock realises he has intense feelings for John. He doesn't approach John about it (because John's not gay, right?) Instead, he turns to an old friend to numb the feelings. Possible spoilers for S1&2 as this is a kind of alternate so expect a little AU also. Rated M for future content. This will be a multi-chapter fic.

Post-Reichenbach. John doesn't cope well with Sherlock's 'death'. Will Sherlock find out and return in time to save him? Even if he does, what then? 50 Chapters plus epilogue. This started as a couple of related standalone fics, but I decided to continue it as a multi-chapter, on-going story.
