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.

Fanfic masterlist

Disclaimer: The Holmes characters fall in the public domain: This version falls under the creative control of Messers Moffatt and Gatiss, and the BBC. No ownership is implied or inferred. This is done for love only.
Summary: Everyone warned John about getting too close to Sherlock. Maybe they were right to do so.
A/N: This fic was inspired by [livejournal.com profile] lavvyan’s fic A Brief History of Johns but is very, very different. Credit for the spark and subsequent nudging is laid there. This story is based loosely on the European myth “Bluebeard” and the Child Ballad “Lady Isabel and the Elf Knight”. AU for small details of residence at Baker Street and disregarding TGG.

Absolute love and gratitude to my beta [livejournal.com profile] caffienekitty who convinced me that the story was worth sharing and to [livejournal.com profile] morelindo who helped me with John and put up with me constantly putting down my writing. Love you both.

And the seventh one has drownèd thee )

I did some writing! It's not cheerful though. I was watching "The Duchess and the Devil" and I though, gee, this isn't nearly angsty enough, so I wrote some suicidal!Archie for the hell of it. Poor Archie, maybe I'll write him some recovery scenes next.

Series: Hornblower (TV movieverse)
Title: The Dark of the Night
Episode: The Duchess and the Devil
Rating: G
Genre: Angst, vignette
