Author has written 18 stories for Robin Hood, 2010, Castle, Christy, Walking Dead, Sherlock, and Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries.

Hi, I'm Elliott. I write for just about anything (Castle, Walking Dead, and Sherlock at this moment), but a very long while ago I used to write fiction for Pretender and some older pieces for the West Wing.

I am incredibly grateful to have been nominated for the 2012 Castle Fic Awards, and beyond honoured to have won three categories with No Joy But Lacks Salt: Best Alternate Reality, Best Angst, and Best Other Romance. Thank you to everyone who has read this terribly beautiful and beautifully terrible story, and for everyone who has believed in love - however we come to it. For the other fabulous Castle stories please see:

And because I promised - the most gripping and heartwrenching lines from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's "The Adventure of the Three Garridebs" when John is shot and Sherlock reacts: "It was worth a wound—it was worth many wounds—to know the depth of loyalty and love which lay behind that cold mask. The clear, hard eyes were dimmed for a moment, and the firm lips were shaking. For the one and only time I caught a glimpse of a great heart as well as of a great brain. All my years of humble but single-minded service culminated in that moment of revelation."

Revelation indeed.

Petite Mort reviews
Sherlock knows why John has done it, but it is a kindness that cuts him to the heart, even the one people don't think he has. If he hasn't - and perhaps he doesn't - then John's must be enough for both of them. Post-Reichenbach. Rated M, only for safety.

No Joy But Lacks Salt reviews
She knows it's not the fall that hurts but the sudden stop at the end. For her, the descent is no less terrible than the crash. But at the bottom, at the end, she realizes there is no place to go but up. So she rises. Now complete, with epilogue.

Noli Me Tangere reviews
He knows now, as if he hadn't before, that this is why she guards her heart, why he sees so little of it despite all they've been through, all they've done together. Letting him in, the way she let Royce, could break him the same way.

"What is it you're afraid of, Christy?" he asked. "Wanting, or giving?" Author's Note: After recently re-reading the book Christy again, this story came to me. It could take place near/at the end of the book, or after "The Road Home" in the tv series.
