About Beautiful Fiction - Updated July 2013

I'm a writer in my late twenties, currently deeply entrenched within the Sherlock BBC fandom and enjoying myself immensely. I helplessly ship John/Sherlock, and I truly hope you enjoy my endeavours. If you do then I'd love to hear from you! I also run the online gothic jewellery store GlitterGoth.

I used to write in the Fullmetal Alchemist fandom, but gradually bowed out thanks to my commitment and passions in Sherlock. As such, No Smoke Without Fire and Counterpoint should be considered as abandoned, with no further updates forthcoming.

A proportion of my work is rated Mature, and should only be read by those of age to do so. If you can't see the relevant stories, then check the rating filter is switched to show all ratings.

As of July 2013, I shall no longer be posting new works on this site. This is because the functionality of this archive has grown restrictive, and is no longer fit for my purposes. Instead, all new works will be on my AO3 page. This includes the more explicit versions of my existing Sherlock pieces below. AO3 allows guests to read and leave kudos for work. Being a member will allow you to subscribe so you are alerted when I post new chapters and fics, and to review should you desire.

You can request an invitation to AO3 by going the invite request page and putting in your email address. Currently the waiting time is about 24 hours.

Explicit versions of my FMA works can be found at My Livejournal

Alternatively, for news on progress, excerpts and more, please check out my tumblr.


Notes

I use 'single quotes' to indicate dialogue. This is NOT a mistake. Please don't review trying to correct this behaviour. 'Single quotes' for dialogue is a British publishing standard (it saves ink in a big run). I hope you can overlook this nuance and continue to enjoy my work

Please do not redistribute my fanfiction on other archives or sites such as goodreads or ebooks tree without my express permission. Thank you :)
