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.

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,

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. ;)

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. )

JWP #9: Healer's Choice. One person Watson chose not to save.
A/N: I was going to go all silly with a full DVR or a fridge over-packed with experiments or something, but then I reread the prompt: "One person..." Who that person is here is anybody's guess. I know who I think it is. I leave it to each of you to decide for yourselves who you think it is.

The Ballad of Reading Gaol


"I never saw a man who looked
With such a wistful eye
Upon that little tent of blue
Which prisoners call the sky,
And at every drifting cloud that went
With sails of silver by."

--Oscar Wilde

A/N: My mind fixated on the middle two lines and would not let go. Also, it caught the images from that uber-creepy deleted scene that [livejournal.com profile] keerawa linked yesterday. My brain needed to create a not-creepy antidote. So, yeah. This.


The first time he wakes, it's dark. )
