Fics, fics, and more fics!

This all started because I got sucked into the July 2011 Prompt Fics fest over at the Watson's Woes community. I've added more since then, and will add more as I post more in the future, so I figured the least I could do was put a Master Fic List here where it would be easy for people to find. Hopefully you'll discover something you enjoy amidst all my rambling and silliness.

Side note on labels: Most of my fics are "squint-friendly", meaning you can read them as gen or bromance or slash depending on how you want to read them. Exceptions are usually noted, but I freely admit to a certain lack of diligence in that area. Also, my default setting is slash, so don't be surprised if it turns up when you weren't expecting it; it's safe to assume that I always expect it.

BBC-Sherlock fics )

BBC Sherlock Watson's Woes 2014 (mostly) )

July Writing Prompts 2015 )



All of these fics (and many from two other fandoms) can be found over on www.DNashionalArchive.com. Frankly, I think they're easier to read over there (i.e., prettier), but you can't comment there should you so desire.
You can also find all these Sherlockian fics over on AO3, where you can comment and/or kudo if you'd like to.

Characters: Sherlock Holmes, Mycroft Holmes, John Watson
Warnings: None
Genre: Gorey; Fluff
Word count: 221B
Date: 25 July 2013
Prompt: So very Gorey: Surely an artist that would tickle the modern Holmes' funnybone, and possibly would have gotten a laugh (or a long, cold stare) from the ACD original. Take your inspiration from one of the works of Edward Gorey, from the man, from a random title of one of his works, or whatever else tickles your fancy.
A/N: I could have sworn there was an Edward Gorey book by this title, but I appear to have confused it with The Sopping Thursday. So, here's my Holmesian take on the tale. I only wish I was capable of illustrating it in properly Gorey fashion.
