Fandom: Sherlock

Summary: Well, that’s what Christmas is all about, really. Love.

*

On Christmas night, John holds out both arms to Sherlock and draws him, gently and with care, into them, puts a hand to his back.

‘Happy Christmas, you,’ he says, simple and soft and closes his eyes for a minute, rubs the detective’s spine. Sherlock moves; grunts something in reply but what’s more telling, John thinks, is the way that Sherlock slips an arm right around his shoulders in return, presses his cheek against John’s hair. It’s nice, actually; John likes it. His hair is ordinary, dull and grey next to Sherlock’s lovely-looking curls, but. Still. It’s a gentle kind of being. A sort of silent stay.

The remnants of Christmas are strewn around them, or their version of a Christmas at least; a small tree, a few lights and the remains of their Chinese takeaway on the coffee-table. They haven’t felt like celebrating a lot this year – not sure they’ve had too much to celebrate.

Still, it’s okay. Sherlock is here. And John is here. And they made it through alright. So, that’s. That’s something. It’s fine. Well. It’s not all fine, not really. But they’re safe in here and John can, for his part at least, do his best to keep them both that way.

‘Happy Christmas, John.’ And Sherlock’s arm tightens around him as he says it back.

Characters: Sherlock Holmes, (female) John Watson.
Summary: A moment shared.
Rating: PG

AN: Welcome back, my 2011 habit of genderswapping John Watson. Not sure what people will make of this one, but I wanted to write it; I just really wanted to do a small piece with this scenario. Feedback is appreciated.

Title: Steady
Fandom: Sherlock
Author: ellieet
Summary: ‘Sherlock,’ says John – or at least a rough approximation to John’s voice: it’s scratchy and harsh, bitter from one too many nights of not sleeping; sleeping alone.
Rating: PG (for a bit of swearing)
Warnings: Character death (not Sherlock or John)
Disclaimer: I don't own Sherlock.

So... my flist is basically my test-audience as I'm a little out of practice. Let me know what you think?

Okay, I need to recommend two things to you guys:

1) The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn: Yes, I know this is a well-loved film anyway, but it's kind of hard to trace when the fandom is hard to create, based on Herge's instructions that no more stories be written after his death, which kind of freezes fanfic writers in their tracks. For the comic, this is good news, but I think the film is a completely different manner.

Basically; this film. THIS FILM. People have called me 'sad' before for liking Tintin, but the fact is, although it looks like it's aimed at children, it's really for everyone. There are so many wonderful scenes in this film; just so many fantastic things about it. It's soothing, fun and exciting and the chase scene on the motorbike is to die for. I've lost myself in it so many times the past couple of weeks. But the clincher for me? Haddock's speech to Tintin about failure: "You send out the wrong signal, that's what people pick up."

And they made Haddock Scottish. What more can I say?

2) This Sherlock fic on Ao3, which frankly needs a lot more attention: Okay, I'll be brutally honest and say I've never heard of Love Boat, but don't let that put you off; even if you haven't hear of it, the interactions between Sherlock and John are just great. There's something so achingly realistic about their relationship, something understated and quiet and gentle, which is my favourite kind of thing - even with the sexual tropes that I usually try and avoid, simply because they're not for me. I don't know how Mintwitch does it, but that's the kind of Sherlock/John I'm looking for: subtle, healthy, understated and soft.
