Fanfic Rec  

skyfyre  has posted her very first fanfic and let's give her encouragement to write more. This Sherlock Holmes story set in the new Sherlock series' continuity* nails the characters and is both touching and silly fun.


There is a passing bit of slash so if you'd prefer your Holmes/Watson platonic then you might want to give it a miss but it would be your loss.  

*Set in the 21st century.

Edited for those like Feni who haven't heard of Sherlock.

You're welcome! The chat conversation will have me giggling off and on for the rest of the day.

Whazzat?!? Sherlock and Watson text each other? When did cellphones enter the Victorian era?

Zack is confused. So is Feni.

Fic was cute, if a little brain-breaking due to text messaging and mentions of James Bond. 'Can't. Bleeding.' is WIN.

This is based on Sherlock, the new BBC series. It updates the stories to the 21st century and is supposed to be really, really good, and as faithful as it can be given the time jump, but I haven't had a chance to see any of it yet.

It's been mentioned more than once that it's ironic that Watson can still be a veteran of Afghanistan over 100 years later.

"Can't. Bleeding." Is my favorite line in that.

Ah... that makes more sense. I had the new(ish) movie in mind - which I've never seen, except for adverts - so thus my confusion.
