Guest-Author's Notes: Tysolna's guest chapter definitely sparked my Muse further, so we've got this here, and Tysolna has said she wants to do the following chapter. So it's a full-on collaboration, I think, which is a good source of yay! in my book. Now... I can't wait to see what's going to happen next! *high-fives Tysolna and hands off the fic-baton*

Guest-Author's Notes: OK so I was reading Random_Nexus's chapter this morning over breakfast, and was like, "You can't end that there!" Which in turn made my Muse bite, and over the course of a working day, in minutes caught between duties, I came up with this. I don't know if this is going where Random had intended, but yeah. :) I wonder what's going to happen next...

Summary: Two young sea-dwellers meet in unusual circumstances.
Author's Notes: This is something Lady-Karasu and I spoke of quite a while back, and I’ve had such a time trying to wrestle it into existence, but it seems NaNoWriMo got the juices flowing and I finally got the start of this from the Muse. So, zoom, here we are. Yes, there will be more.

Author's Notes: And here we are with a final chapter before six gajillion years have passed! I'm pleased, though shocked, because it's been too rare of late for my preference. ANYWAY - it's angsty, it's a bit gritty, but here it is, the third and final chapter. Hope you like it, dear readers.

Summary: A potential client brings a strange story and a photograph that looks boring, but isn't.
Author's Notes: I was looking at the photo on the Writeworld post, and was rather sleepy at the time, so my eyes blurred a bit after a big yawn, and I saw shapes in the grass. Next thing I know, the Muse was giving me a 'what if' and some basic plottage, and I started writing. Here's what she showed me, based on the image. I think, if it weren't for NaNoWriMo, I might've struggled with adding more to the story, but as it is, I'm hoping someone will read this and have their own Muse pop up with what happens later.

Holmesian Prompt Fic: Unexpected Diagnosis

Title: Unexpected Diagnosis
Rating: PG-13
Fandom: Sherlock Holmes - Canon
Characters/Pairings: Sherlock Holmes, John Watson, Mrs. Hudson, Mrs. Turner, Billy, Misc OCs
Word Count: 5,380
Disclaimer: ACD's Sherlock Holmes stories are public domain, but I mean no disrespect or illegality in my use of them as source material.
Warnings: Yes, actually. Non-graphic reference to menstruation, Transgender issues, Well-intentioned but potentially problematic references to and discussion of transgender topics, Requires belief-suspenders.
Original Prompt: July Writing Prompt #22: While You Were Out. Watson returns home after a long day to find a note pinned to his door. What is the note? Who left it? It's all up to you. Good luck!- Watson's Woes
Summary: As the prompt dictates - Watson comes home to find a note on the door. Billy, Mrs. Hudson's servant and Holmes' messenger boy, has been struck ill. However, the 'illness' Watson is called to tend isn't as it seems, and the diagnosis is completely unexpected.
Author's Notes: Well, this surprised me, I can assure you, but I really wanted to write it once the Muse plonked the notion in my noggin’; however, it’s a topic that can be kinda flamey, and I really had to consider whether I should go ahead and post it. I feel I should say that this is less PC than a modern version of Sherlock Holmes (like BBC SH) would be, but probably more so than it really would have been back in the Victorian era. I’d like to think Sherlock Holmes, in any iteration, due to his forward thinking and canonical tendency to treat those highborn and lowborn fairly equally in most ways, might very well have made this judgement call—and that John Watson would’ve agreed with him. That being said, please be mindful that this isn’t a modern version, and I’ve probably pushed believability pretty hard already, also that I’m aware some of the things are phrased problematically, with the understanding that I think the situation would have been much more problematic in the real world than I’ve portrayed here in this fic. Also? Srsly, I am a happy-ending junkie, so that's what you're getting, join me in thumbing our noses at reality.
Please see the notes at the end for a spoilery few words about Mrs. Hudson & Mrs. Turner.

Title: Long Distance House Call
Rating: PG-13
Fandom: Sherlock BBC / Elementary
Characters/Pairings: Sherlock Holmes/John Watson.
Word Count: 2,405
Disclaimer: ACD's Sherlock Holmes stories are public domain, but I mean no disrespect or illegality in my use of them or their BBC adaptations as source material.
Spoilers: Nope
Warnings: Mild warning for Men who love other men, References to phone sex, Fluff.
Original Prompt: July Writing Prompt #21: Heat Rash. It's a muggy, hot summer and someone's reacting badly. Metaphorical bonus points for including salve/lotion/ointment and needing help applying it. Good luck!- Watson's Woes
Summary: John's away at a medical conference and Sherlock develops a nasty heat rash, necessitating John 'treating' him over the phone, amongst other things.
Author's Notes: Funny thing is, it's been horrifically muggy (for this area) the last week or so, making it kinda useful that I looked up treatments for heat rash. Also, while we're on the subject, I am not a doctor, nor do I play one on tv; all medical advice here is from the glorious land of google. Also, also - if you've never had it, trust me, heat rash if f'ing crazy uncomfortable and stupidly inconvenient if it's where your clothing rubs you - just sayin'.

Title: New York To London Via Not-Precisely-Mad Scientist
Rating: PG-13
Fandom: Sherlock BBC / Elementary
Characters/Pairings: Sherlock Holmes/John Watson, Joan Watson.
Word Count: 4,397
Disclaimer: ACD's Sherlock Holmes stories are public domain, but I mean no disrespect or illegality in my use of them or their BBC / CBS Television adaptations as source material.
Spoilers: Nope
Warnings: Mild warning for Men who love other men, Manly smooches, Improbable science, Even more improbable reactions to science, Fluff, Shmoop, Mild crack.
Original Prompt: July Writing Prompt #20: Yankee Doodle Came to London - Doyle seemed to have a fascination for people and things American (three of his four novel-length Sherlock Holmes tales feature someone from North America), and societies as diverse as Pennsylvanian coal-town gangs, the Latter-Day Saints and the KKK appear in Canon. Remember that Watson was whumped by a Chicago gangster in 3GAR. Put something or someone American in your entry (or just have Joan Watson show up), or do an American-based pastiche (or just put Joan Watson in the story, did I mention her?). Good luck!- Watson's Woes
Summary: Sherlock's wreaking science in 221c, John doesn't wholly approve, strange things happen, and then there's a twist. SCIENCE, JOHN! Or... maybe not?
Author's Notes:Don’t ask me, I have no idea what the Muse was smoking, but this is only going to fuel that steampunk notion stewing on the back burners of my fic kitchen. Sorry if it’s weird, I had to work Joan Watson in there somewhere, because… Joan Watson! Yeah.

Warnings: Nothing much. Non-graphic violence, Men who love other men, Nudity, Inspired Improper use of household items.
Original Prompt: July Writing Prompt #23: For a truly desperate person anything can be utilized as a tool or as a weapon. Good luck!- Watson's Woes
Summary: John and Sherlock get surprised by intruders in the middle of the night and have to improvise. Hijinx most assuredly ensue.
Author's Notes:The idea for this one hit me right between the eyes when I was brushing my teeth after about the fourth reading of the prompt. My friend, tysolna , aside from being kind enough to beta this for me, told me I should post it ASAP. So, this one’s out of order—my OCD tendencies are flinching—but then they’re all ridonkulously late, anyway, so… yeah, posting this now instead of in order. Yep.

STATE OF THE FICCERY - Update

The project I was working on has reached the end of its timeframe. I am now free to devote my free time to ficcery yet again! \o/



For those that might want to know, I’ll be getting back into the ridonkulously delayed and very, very long fic from the AO3 Auction back in the last century or two. It’s been forever and the person it’s for should be sainted, or knighted, or given some major award of some kind. *sends hugs and apologies as per usual to Middletone*

In amongst the Auction Fic, I’ll be finishing the July prompts, and then will start rotating in the WIP fics. Sometime before the next turn of the century, we might see some finished work, here, yeah? *head-desk* Still, it’s me and the Muse back on the keyboard. Send Muse Treats, luck, and fortitude.

Thank you, my dear readers! <3
Just a quick update, my dear readers.

Due to the spreadsheet project I was talking about being a lot more messed-up than I thought (I’m having to QR other people’s contributions to the whole as well as finishing the research and integration of that research into the existing doc), I won’t be able to do any ficcing this week at all. I'm planning to finish out the prompts - belatedly, obviously - and then get back to the WIP fics I was already working on, and so on. This is a paying gig (and I've had some of that pay given to me up front), and I need these monies muchly, so... yeah, the ficcery is unfortunately the first thing I have to set aside.

Wish me luck, patience, and the good graces of the internewts.

Summary: John's having trouble achieving consciousness and then remembering why he was unconscious in the first place - but people are talking about a murder investigation and alibis, so he really needs to know what's going on.
Author's Notes: This is another one that refused to go away or to let me make it short. So it’s going to be split into 3 chapters, to allow me to move onward and finish it in between doing some of the other prompts. Anyhoo, here’s the first part, but be reassured, this fic’s already mapped out and nearly complete. This shouldn’t require Holmesian levels of hiatus (unlike other WIP fics of mine, for which I am perpetually apologetic). It’s a bit odd and indistinct, but that’s a reflection of John’s state of mind, just FYI.

Spoilers: Nope
Warnings: Not really anything, Vague descriptions of fantasy violence, Dangerously punnish tendencies, Requires belief suspenders, Muse left unattended.
Original Prompt: July Writing Prompt #18: The Games We Play. Involve a game of some sort in your story, whether it's a round of whist, an intense night of Cluedo, or a Pac-Man tournament. Good luck!- Watson's Woes
Summary: John's meeting with Greg, Molly, and another DI from NSY for game nights. Sherlock's feeling a bit jealous and has to figure out what to do about the problem.
Author's Notes: Oh, my gawdz, this one just ate me alive. I couldn’t stop once I’d started and it’s probably going to be boring after some point, but I was having fun watching them play, y’know? Anyhoo, this excessive wordishness, a bit of brief illness, and the storms yanking us back into the stone age several times put me so behind. SO far behind. Okay, enough kvetching. Here it is, hope some of my dear readers enjoy it. If you spot anything in present tense, drop me a message, would you? I kept slipping out of past tense when I got sleepy, no idea wtf is up with that, srsly.
