Author has written 16 stories for Sherlock.

Hi, everyone! I go by the username Arts and Letters, and I primarily read and write stories in the BBC's Sherlock universe. I also have an account over on Archive of Our Own under the same user name, where I post the exact same stories at pretty much the exact same time.

I only started watching Sherlock in late 2013, but I instantly fell in love with the series. The writing is amazing; the characters are so vivid; the acting and cinematography are top notch... Basically, I'm a big fan. Although I tend to read mainly John/Sherlock stories, through my writing, I've become a lot more invested in some of the other relationship dynamics, especially the brotherly bond between Sherlock and Mycroft.

I've compiled a youtube playlist of some of my favorite fan-made BBC Sherlock music videos and trailers. You can find it here. I'll continue updating it as I come across more awesome videos. This is a very talented fandom.

In case anyone is interested in story progress, here's where everything stands:

In progress:
Perils of the Past
I loved you once
A Modest Proposal
The Descent (prequel to Road to Hell)
Give My Best to Redbeard/In Absentia (Already added a new chapter, still two more to go.)

Complete:
Go Fish
The Namesake
Atonements
The Vigil
How it ends
Hamish
To Serve and Protect (same universe as Road to Hell and The Descent)

"Complete" for now, but more chapters might come eventually:
Anthea (Definitely at least one more chapter will be posted...eventually)
Road to Hell
Though this be madness

Upcoming:
Indestructible (Johnlock Oneshot)
Always A Bridesmaid (Janine character study)

Thanks to the talents of Blackie-Noir, several of my stories now have Spanish translations! You can find them all listed in my favorite stories.
