Title: The Unabridged Version of The Engineer’s Thumb
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] alafaye
Author: [livejournal.com profile] jcporter1
Rating: R
Characters: Sherlock Holmes , Dr. Watson, Victor Hatherley, Inspector Bradstreet, Colonel Lysander Stark, Dr. Becher, Elise
Warnings: Descriptions of gruesome death, and near gruesome death.
Summary: "The Engineer’s Thumb" has been described in Dr. Watson’s own words as a weak case that didn’t showcase Holmes’ skills. Yet he was compelled to write it anyway, only with the good parts left out.
Disclaimer: I make no money or fame from this colorful retelling of Arthur Conan Doyle’s story or the use of characterizations of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson.

Podficcer: [livejournal.com profile] morelindo
Author of podficced work:: mydwynter
Link to original text:: http://archiveofourown.org/works/1110361
Rating: R/Explicit
Characters, including any pairing(s): Holmes/Watson, Reginald Musgrave
Warnings: Period-Typical Homophobia
Summary: It is my custom, you may have noticed, to save those little cases which we have solved until such time as danger to those involved has passed, or until Holmes otherwise suggests I may write about them.
Why I chose this story to podfic for you: It's a sweet fic that plays deftly with both ACD canon and the Granada show. It does have explicit sex, but it also has a great Watson voice and a lovely sense of humour about some of the odder things that happen in The Musgrave Ritual. I hope you enjoy it!

Warnings: Suicide (not a main character), period typical homophobia.
Summary: As always, I was ever curious to the thoughts of my friend and in the years that followed I puzzled over that moment. His face was so severe, so preoccupied that I knew at once that this case would be either a most intriguing story for my readers or one I never dared to retell.

It has been put to me, on occasion, that my writings are not always as clear... )

Pairing: Sherlock Holmes & John Watson, Sherlock Holmes/John Watson
Word Count: 10567
Rating: R (explicit sexual content)
Warning: Discussion of suicide ideation. Slight warping of the history of French oenology (shifting the decades of The Great Wine Blight and its solution forward a few decades).
Summary: Grafting is the process of adding something new to something old and established, which makes the whole stronger. The story is a prequel to my "Oubliette" series.
Disclaimer: Holmes and Watson originally belonged to ACD, but now Sherlock Holmes belongs to the whole world. Author gratefully acknowledges the existence of Chateau La Riviere Fronsac in the Aquitaine, the winery that is the model for Les Trois Pierres.

Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] thesmallhobbit
Author: [redacted]
Rating: R, for sexual content and mature subject matter
Characters: Sherlock Holmes, John Watson, Mycroft Holmes, Stanley Hopkins. Holmes/Hopkins.
Warnings: mentions of child prostitution in a non-graphic manner
Summary: In the opening of The Adventure of Black Peter Watson mentions, "In this memorable year ’95, a curious and incongruous succession of cases had engaged his attention … down to his arrest of Wilson, the notorious canary-trainer, which removed a plague-spot from the East End of London." This is the tale of that case.
Wordcount: 8,370
Notes: Thank you to [redacted] for the beta and cheerleading, also for helping me decide exactly what a canary trainer was. And thank you to [redacted] for the Brit-pick, beta, historical references, gentle admonishments over bad characterizations, and helpful suggestions all delivered with patience and good humor.

A/N: A little bit of casefic for you, mainecoon76! Some details borrowed from historical reality – Dr Lark and all OCs are purely the product of fiction. :)

Summary: There are those cases which, though resolved, found this resolution through other mechanisms than the work of Sherlock Holmes. Such was the matter of one Doctor Frances Lark.

Fair Hearts of Finest Glow


For: [livejournal.com profile] garonne

Author: [livejournal.com profile] tweedisgood

Pairing: Holmes/Watson established relationship

Rated: R in parts – nothing too hair-raising

Word Count: ~ 6,300

Summary: Being, some of the time, a tale of Sherlock Holmes and his female friends.

Warning: Victorian attitudes in spades. You name the ‘ism’, it’s here, because it was there. No need to say, I hope, that no character’s views reflect the author’s.

Notes: Title is from “Hafiz to the Cup-bearer”, Edward Carpenter. Beta thanks to [livejournal.com profile] mad_with_july

Pairing: Holmes/Watson, possibly. You decide.
Rating: PG13-R

Warnings: usual Victorian attitudes, sexism and homophobia
Notes: beta thanks to [livejournal.com profile] spacemutineer. References to recreational scolding, as modern Mycroft would phrase it. Canon Mycroft wouldn't phrase it.

Author: [livejournal.com profile] mainecoon76

Pairing: Holmes/Watson

Rating: PG-13

Warnings: none

Summary: The quality of writing is disagreed upon, and Watson proves himself to be an unreliable narrator. Eventually, though, Holmes comes to realize that the liberal use of poetic licence may occasionally lead to quite favourable results.

Betaed by [livejournal.com profile] mrs_sweetpeach, as usual. Thank you so much!

A/N: Dear recipient, you asked for “something sweet and sexy with a happy ending” and this is what my brain supplied. Hope you enjoy it!

Rating: R
Characters, including any pairing(s): Holmes/Watson
Words: 6000
Warnings: None. But here's something that's more like the opposite of a warning: (highlight to read) (skip) No character death, despite initial appearances.

Summary: Holmes would rather have avoided returning with Watson to the Alps, even years after the events from which he's not sure Watson has ever really recovered. Contains a little angst and a lot of affection. Also an abundance of ice and snow.
Many thanks to my wonderful, sharp-eyed beta, probablyquantum.

This was inspired by your little phrase "young men participating in footchases", though it ended up being more like old-ish men on skis ;) Also (vaguely) by the prompt: Watson being very clever and Holmes being amused/impressed/turned on. Hope you enjoy it!
