Rating: R language
Length: 1410
Universe: BBC
Genres: Magical Realism. Hint o' Slash
Summary: Bad luck abounds.
Date: 28 July 2015
JWP #28: Bad, Bad, oh so Bad! Whether it's bad art, bad fiction, or just plain awful, let the badness inspire you in some way today. Take a bad song and make it better, or make it so bad it's good? It's up to you!
A/N: An odd take on the prompt, methinks. Also, I seem to have lost my ability to write short fic. O! for a muse of drabble!


John's luck had been rotten all day. )

Getting to Know You
By MonkeyBard
Rating: G
Length: 1907
Universe: BBC
Genres: Gen; Slash
Summary: John hangs out with a new friend.
Date: 27 July 2015
JWP #27: "Aside from yourself, I have none." Sherlock Holmes is supposed to be the anti-social one with Watson as his only friend. But who are Watson's friends outside of Sherlock Holmes?
A/N: This is awfully long considering there's no plot, but some days are like that. More notes at the end.


Given the choice, John would have gone with Sherlock. )

A/N2: RiffTrax is a thing. A thing of genius. Which is to be expected because, hello, it's the MST3K guys. www.rifftrax.com I recommend going there and giving them your money for their product. They deserve it. Also, John's been a fan of MST3K in my version of things since Sherlock dragged him into a marathon during A Misty London Sunday.
A/N3: If you don't know Oscar, you can meet him in last year's JWP fic Soldier's Dance, and again in this year's Déjà Vu All Over Again.

Date: 26 July 2015
JWP #26: The One You Were Expecting: Everyone expects certain kinds of prompts in JWP. Today's prompt is exactly that: the one you personally had expected to see by now, but haven't. Whether that's a 221B challenge, a woeful injury, or a cracktastic combination - well, it's whatever you expected from JWP!
A/N: I expected a Whump-a-Watson prompt by now, so I guess that means I'm going to be writing whump today. Wish Watson luck. He's going to need it.

Length: 1393
Universe: BBC
Genre: Slash
Summary: Sherlock doesn't like the heat. John does what he can to help.
Date: 21 July 2015
JWP #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.
A/N: This came out in present tense. Don't ask me why. I beg your indulgence on the point.


The summer is relentless. )

West End Blues
By MonkeyBard
Rating: PG
Length: 847
Universe: BBC
Summary: Classic locked-room murder.
Date: 20 July 2015
JWP #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 do an American-based pastiche.

JWP #17: But Aside From That, Dr. Watson, How Did You Like the Trip to Switzerland?: Watson has been accused of having a “pawky sense of humour” by his flatmate. Incorporate humour into your entry in some way – even grim or black humour (characteristic of both medical people and police).
A/N: Inspired by a true story.

NEW MESSAGE
To: Harry Watson
From: John Watson

Subject: Thanks, but…

Harry,

Thanks for the birthday supper out. I was surprised by your offer, to be honest. I had a good evening and I hope you did too.

Thought I'd let you know I got mugged on the way home from the restaurant. Nothing serious. Couple of dumb thugs and the only harm done was to their faces and the screen on my mobile. So don't try calling or texting anytime soon. I'll let you know when I've got a new one. It'll be the same number.

~John


RE: Thanks, but…
From: Harry Watson
To: Johnny W

Johnny-
Never would've happened if you hadn't insisted on having dessert.
Love,

Adage
By MonkeyBard
Rating: G
Length: 100
Universe: BBC
Summary: Beginning. Middle. End.
Date: 15 July 2015
JWP #15: That Old Saying. The old Egyptian saying "ابن الوزّ عوّام. (ibn il-wazz 3awwam.) ("The son of a goose is a swimmer.") is roughly the same sentiment as the English "Like father, like son." Whether it's one of these statements or another adage, include some classic saying in today's entry. Bonus points if you also manage to include a goose!
A/N: Take 2 on today's prompt. No geese this time, but at least I actually followed the prompt. Plus there's a Watson in this one.


It started well. )

JWP #15: That Old Saying. The old Egyptian saying "ابن الوزّ عوّام. (ibn il-wazz 3awwam.) ("The son of a goose is a swimmer.") is roughly the same sentiment as the English "Like father, like son." Whether it's one of these statements or another adage, include some classic saying in today's entry. Bonus points if you also manage to include a goose!
A/N: I can't get through JWP without at least one fic without even a mention of John Watson. I'm surprised I made it this far into the month before it happened, to be honest.
A/N2: I realize that I didn't actually read the prompt properly. I guess I'll have to write another fic today. Oh well. At least there's geese in this one. ;)

To the Rescue
By Monkeybard
Rating: PG - language
Length: 1597
Genre: Magical Realism, Slash
Universe: BBC
Summary: John meets a new friend and an old one.
Date: 12 July 2015
JWP #12: Doyle vs. Dogs: Toby notwithstanding, dogs got a raw deal in Sherlock Holmes Canon – shot, poisoned, thrown out windows, stung by jellyfish. Feature a dog in your entry in some way (preferably without dying) from any incarnation of Sherlock Holmes – Redbeard, Gladstone, the Dog that Did Nothing, or even an honorary "dog" like Clyde the tortoise. Needless to say, Sherlock Hound stories count.
A/N: Playing fast and loose with Welsh mythology and hoping my ancestors will indulge me yet again. Long enough to really need a beta, and yet not getting one.


It was a rotten week and Sherlock's latest bullshit behaviour had tipped it over the edge. )


*A/N2: See last July's A London Fairy Tale.
