Prompt: Undercover
AN: I was in two minds about whether to post this, but I'm being a completist, I guess. I'm really not enamoured of this one - I know what I was trying to do but I didn't really have time to get it right. Next round is already half written though.

AN: A short one to finish, and that’s your lot. Thank you so much people who have stuck with this through all the angst - there came a point at the beginning of chapter four where even I, the evil author, wanted to fix it so that they could all live in OT3 land with a baby, but that was never where the story was going, and I do have purpose in my sad ficcery. Hopefully this is a bit of a balm after all the woe and grief. Thanks guys, it’s been fun!

Never Be Sung )
BIG DAMN MEGA POST OF DOOM.

Otherwise known as the [livejournal.com profile] watsons_woes July 2011 challenge master post. 31 regular prompts, all on time, plus 10 amnesties, all on time and all connected into one larger story.

That should be a clean sweep, I think.

Now I'm going to go die for a bit and not write anything for... ooh, at least a day. And I will go back through the comm and read all the entries I didn't read because I was too busy writing the damned things.

Of all my fics, I most like And Afterwards Remember/The Claws That Catch for writing quality. I enjoyed writing Left Shoe for Luck and Dashing Hopes for Our Deliverance most. And Lucky starred in With the Queen. This month has seen martians, cows, the Great War, The Second World War, Moriarty several times, tap-dancing Mycrofts, flu, pneumonia, broken legs, allergies, fire, bereavement, revenge, poetry, insanity, drugs, civil ceremonies, shouting, lots and lots of angst, and tea. Sherlock has died twice, John once, and we've been around Reichenbach four times.

God, it's been fun!

AN: This is sort of a songfic in that I was describing Donald Swann’s The Youth Of the Heart to a friend and the fic idea sort of clicked into my head. I do recommend listening to the song which is on Flanders & Swann: At the Drop of Another Hat.

Summary: Fleeing Moriarty, Sherlock has dragged John across Europe. John awakes alone.
AN: And that’s the month! *thud* Every day, every deadline except the first day LJ went down when it was written in time. My brain hurts... I am going to do a single story from the amnesty prompts, or at least I’m going to have a damn good go, but I’m going camping tomorrow so nothing will get posted until at least Saturday and that’s assuming there isn’t a bloody great Hound on Dartmoor waiting for us...

I should say I feel terribly guilty about not having done lots of reading this month - I had little energy for reading and writing and focused on the latter. When I'm back from my holiday I intend to bury myself in promptfic for at least another month!

Author's info:
Sherlock/John
NC-17
~20 000 words

Summary: Written for this prompt on the [livejournal.com profile] sherlockbbc_fic kinkmeme: ‘John got scared off men by an abusive past relationship. Sherlock has to try and woo him while not scaring him off with protective possessive rage.’
Warnings: Mentions of a past relationship which, while not explicitly abusive, definitely skirts close to it. Please don’t read if this will upset you.

My ramblings:
Warnings: This is one of the few cases where I would use the label dub-con*

Reccer's comments:
You know me, I don't read abusive relationship fics most of the time. I have in the past and they almost invariably piss me off. This, however, is masterful. The summary intrigued me because it shows an awareness of the complicated nature of the beast, and I peeked in. The story is beautifully told, John having had an abusive relationship that put him off men and Sherlock helping him back on track and showing him how tender a relationship like that can be. But it's much better than it sounds! I know if I were reading this summary I'd think "great, dramatic flashback sequences and a wonderous night of magic sex." kate_lear absolutely does not do that. The story is slow and gentle, taking place over months not weeks, a lovely slow burn of healing and a very brave resolve not to be black and white, not to have big dramatic conversations with weeping and chivalrous posing from the healer; just a very quiet, understated, real life understanding that healing takes years, and understanding, ten, fifteen, twenty years down the line, may still not come. But you can live, and love, regardless of that.**

In short, you know I'd never rec a dub- or non-con fic unless I thought it was That Damn Good. This is. You know those times when a fic just gets it right? This is one of those.


*Anyone unlucky enough to have got into the discussion with me on the use of dub-con and non-con (and vs. other terms) in fic warnings knows how black and white my views of consent issues can be and my opinion that lots of people who say dub just use it because they don't want to shut people out by saying non. This fic really is a genuine case as the only information we have is recollections from the character who is not the POV focus for the story, and you end up weighing their perception with their reactions - you genuinely can't know. So I'm not breaking my rule by using it! :p

**This para is very rambly - the gin is purpling my prose slightly. But my points stand.
