THIS PERSON IS ON VACATION

theadventuresofholmesandwatson:

Yes, hello! I am going on vacations for two weeks to my home country - Portugal! :)

It’s a developed country but as it is my parents have no internet access at their place - which is where I am staying - and therefore I won’t be able to be around here until the 5th of August.

Any question or anything at all, please send an ask and I’ll answer as soon as I return!

John was finishing filling in some papers after a day at the practise. He stopped for a second, rubbing his eyes with the tip of his fingers and yawning, before going back to his papers.

It had been a hectic day and he was tired, his head was starting to hurt too. He had had five coffees during the afternoon but it still wasn’t working. He heard his assistant pacing from one side to the other, which meant she should be getting ready to go home. He was proven right just a few seconds later, when there was a knock on the door, and with John’s permission, she peeked in.

“I’m ready to go home,” she said. “Do you need anything else?”

John smiled, tiredly.

“No, I’ll take care of the rest. I’m almost done, at any rate.”

His assistant smiled back. It had been a long day for both of them.

“Alright then, I’ll see you tomorrow. Everyone else is gone as well; do you want me to lock the front door?”

John shook his head.

“No, I shan’t be long, just ten more minutes and I’ll leave.”

“See you tomorrow, then.”

With a last smile his assistant closed the door behind herself and John heard her footsteps on the tiled floor. There was a heavy thud as the front door was closed and then, silence.

John drank a bit of water from the bottle placed on top of his secretary and then sighed. He might be a bit more than ten minutes, he realised.

He was immersed in work again when a low thud at the door made him raise his head, startled. Looking at the clock he realised it had passed almost half an hour since his assistant had left the place, and he decided that he was better off leaving the paper work to be taken care of the following day. It was his free day but he better come by the practise and do it with a clear mind.

He had no idea who it might be at this time, but he sure hoped no urgent patient had taken advantage of the unlocked front door. He opened the door of his consultation room just slightly. On the other side was a face he recognised well.

“Sherlock?” he asked, surprised. “What are you doing here?”

Sherlock had his hands inside his pockets. John opened the door, an invitation to let him in the consultation room and Sherlock answered, following John inside.

Foul Words

Summary:

Molly leaned against the kitchen counter, watching as Sherlock paced from one side of the living room to the other, and finally sitting down. She knew that despite the fact he had been wrong, she had also been harsh on him. Sherlock always pretended to be cold and emotionally unaffected, but Molly knew better than anyone that that was merely a cover. She also knew that when he was upset it was best to leave him alone, let him mull over the matter and wait for the storm to pass. This had been her fault, though, and she needed to apologise, whether he accepted the apology or not.

She took a deep breath, put down the damp cloth she had been using to dry the dishes Sherlock had washed, and approached the chair he was sitting on. She could see on his profile the lips pressed together, forming a straight line.

Molly picked up her purse from the ground, looking around the house, making sure she hadn’t forgotten anything. Tobias passed by her, leaned against her leg, and moved along as she bent down to pet him. He meowed and she laughed.

“There’s no use being angry at me, I need to go to work.” She advised, seeing him disappearing beyond the corridor and into her room.

The cat didn’t return and she grabbed the keys of the house, and walked out.

The day had dawned grey and wet and these kind of mornings always gave Molly a feeling of nostalgia, like she had been missing something that she couldn’t define. She paced down the stairs, ready to face the rain.

She had forgotten her umbrella at Sherlock’s house the night before. The goodbye had been more intense than usually and her mind was still a twirl of memories when she had gotten home, making her forget all the rest. She had a spare set of clothes at the laboratory, so getting soaked wasn’t exactly a problem.

She nodded to herself, getting ready for the storm and walked fast. She heard footsteps behind her and then, without warning, an arm grabbing her by the waist, turning her around.

Molly walked up the stairs, carrying a bag full of groceries. Her back had been giving her trouble for a while and she stopped for a moment, placing the bag gently on the floor and stretching herself a bit.

It had been a busy week. Work had been quite hectic and a lot of strange cases had shown up: a strange death, one fake suicide and three real ones. St. Bart’s was a daily source of sad news, but this week had been too much. On top of that, Sherlock had been as busy as her. In some ways their jobs were connected, and Lestrade had required Sherlock’s help both on the strange death and the fake suicide – cases that Sherlock had tackled and been successful in solving them.

Raphaella had been complaining all week for lack of attention. She was right, of course, but she also had an ingenious manner to put sentences in a way that would make Molly and Sherlock feel even guiltier than they should; after all, they were working and Raphaella spent her time at school and playing with friends when Sherlock and Molly couldn’t take care of her for some reason. She was never abandoned and either of them would leave their work at once, rather than leave Raphaella alone. Usually they took turns, doing all they could so that their working schedules didn’t clash, and many times the parents’ of Raphaella’s friends would call and ask if Raphaella wanted to sleep over. She would go happy, but when she had to stay at someone’s place because her parents were busy, she would use that to get something in return. She was not mean-spirited, just too clever.

I just realised I never post updates on this blog so now is a good time to start.

I am a bit busy with a few things at the moment. I have signed up for that exchangelock challenge (as my main blog, theadventuresofholmesandwatson) and also as a podficcer fo a LJ challenge. 

I am also a part of Summer Christmas and I am writing a Cabin Pressure fic for that so I’ve been having quite a lot of work recently, if you add to that podfics I have been recording before and are not yet finished, I’ll be busy for a while.

I’ll post the fics here when the dates to post them arrive.

I am going back to Portugal on vacations on the 22th of July and hopefully I’ll finnaly have time to finish my Noel Fielding fic - unbelievable how I am almost done with it but didn’t manage to finish it yet. It’s this Summer, I can feel it.

So, I’ll have news and more works to post very soon!

Beta Reader Request

theadventuresofholmesandwatson:

I am looking for a native English speaker who would be willing to beta read a fic I am writing. 

It’s a Potterlock crossover, multichapter, I don’t know yet how many chapters it will have as I am still writing it (preamble and two chapters are already finished and I have revised them myself, but I’d like someone else to beta read those as well.)

Each chapter should be about 2k words and the main ship is Johnlock, though it is more a detective story than a romance.

The story is for a challenge and I will have to deliver it around the 11th of July, so if anyone here thinks they could help me out with this, just to make sure the sentences are grammatically correct and make sense, I’d really appreciate. 

Please send me an ask if you are available so I won’t miss it.

Thanks!

You are not mine to lose and yet

I’m hollow, as if I had lost something

I have the right to own.

You are not mine to lose and yet

As I count the hours go by

I can’t find another place to belong.

You are not mine to lose and yet

I had never felt this lonely before.

I am not involved, I’m not;

And yet, you feel just like a drug,

And I need more.

How can you not see,

The many ways that you have changed me,

How you placed a heart inside my empty ribcage?

How can you not see

The labyrinth inside of me

That all the riddles lead to you?

How can you not see

All the battles I’ve ever fought

Were mostly against myself,

But you were there to give the cue?

I gave you away on my desperate attempt to keep you safe

On my own adamancy to deny my heart

And now I dance alone and I try to soothe

The way the bullet wound pounds in my chest;

And yet, it is your absence what really shatters

My already broken parts.

Finally moving all my stuff from fanfiction.net to Ao3. I had someone ask me to update the first ever fanfiction I wrote for Sherlock and I thought that was a good excuse to do this, as the fic was finished but I had forgotten to post the rest of the chapters on Ao3.

So, since I had two more stories of that kind also written and published on ff.net I decided to move them there as well and create a series. 

they’re not romances, just crime, detectives’ stories, so if anyone is into that and wants to have a look ,here’s the link to the series.

moriartyisback:

Did you miss me?

Sebastian stares as they wheel the body on the gurney, hidden in the shadows. Nobody notices him and yet he seems to shrink a bit more onto himself.

He should have seen it. Jim was not one to leave notes and the tiny piece of paper he had left that morning placed beside the kettle should have been a warning, but Sebastian didn’t think much of it. He thought it might be a response to the day ahead, like a celebration for getting rid of Sherlock Holmes. Or a random act of kindness. Jim had many of these with him, despite it all.

The most remarkable thing about the two of them was that they hated the whole world, but they loved each other fiercely. Sebastian had trouble dealing with it, so he tried not to dwell on it much. Jim was the home he had never had and to understand what drove them together was something he tried not to worry about. They made a good team: the best team.

He had tried to call him, to make sure that he didn’t make any rush decisions. Jim could be precipitated at times, he lived in the moment. The phone rang but Jim never picked it up and it went to voicemail. So he, Sebastian, left a message, reminding him of it all. How he loved him, how he admired him, that after all this was over he would be waiting for him. It was instinctive, but he felt that he had to tell him. Little did he know that Jim would never get to hear the message.

Sherlock Holmes was alive. Sherlock Holmes, consulting detective and the man he hated the most was alive. Jim had failed. Jim had died to make sure Sherlock died as well and it had all been in vain. It was time for Sebastian to take action.

He sat at the small pub, hearing the news of the death of Charles Augustus Magnussen. Jim would have liked him. Memories of him came rushing by at times, and as the waitress left with his order, he fought back the tears.

He had pulled many triggers for Jim. he never thought that Jim would pull the trigger that took his own life.

The screen flickered and Sebastian looked up, absent minded. But as the image became clear his heart skipped a beat.

'Did you miss me?'

For the first time in two years Sebastian laughed out loud, getting up and knocking down his chair as he ran outside, his legs shaking, but he wouldn’t stop running.

He had no idea where Jim was but he knew that if he continued running, Jim would find him. Jim’s voice resounded in his head, over and over again and all over the place, in every screen, in every street corner.

Oh, yes. He had missed him.
