I need to get back into writing, the same way I need oxygen to breathe. It's been over a year though and I could do with some prompts.  See my tags for subjects/fandoms/pairings/formats I'm comfortable with, but I'm flexible. Be as specific or as vague as you like.


I can't promise to be quick, but this would really help me begin to edge back in...

Fandom/’Verse: Holmes/ACD verse AU crossover with HG Wells’ War of the Worlds
Challenge: watsons_woes July prompts challenge
Title: Dashing Hopes for Our Deliverance
Character: Watson
Length: c.1900 words
Rating: PG-13
Spoilers: n/a
Warnings: Crossover!crack. Character death, alien invasion.

Disclaimer: The Holmes characters fall in the public domain and are the creation of the wonderful Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. War of the Worlds was created by HG Wells and the quotations and inspiration used in writing this piece came from the Jeff Wayne’s War of the Worlds adaptation. No ownership is implied or inferred. This is done for love only.

Summary: Watson is away from London when the invasion comes, and has to hurry back in the hope of finding Holmes.

A/N: Er. There's no excuse. The image just grabbed me and then I had to go with it. I will try hard not to make every single prompt fic (a) crackfic (b) deathfic (c) both of the above. I promise to try.

Some phrases are filched from Jeff Wayne who filched them from HG Wells. Also Col. Burton's first name is, of course Richard.
