Sherlocked 2017

I was trying to take a picture of Lestrade’s warrant card, but the display case was shoved in the corner and my phone has been dropped too many times to take clear pictures.

Sherlock S4 (spoilers, nothing but spoilers)

Adding a spoiler warning in case someone looking for the lyrics to early Belle and Sebastian songs stumbles in here by accident and has their Sherlock experience ruined.

I just needed to express my happiness over the utter ridiculousness that was the end of The Lying Detective. Evil twins! Out of all the twists available, Mofftiss played the evil twin card. I hope it turns out that Lestrade’s mystery date in The Six Thatchers turns out to have been with the evil twin and that Sherlock is very 😦 about evil twin banging all his friends. I’m also hoping for an angsty discussion, ‘Perhaps you are the evil twin.’

In Lestrade news, I was concerned by his violation of correct procedure when he turned off the recording, but apparently he is aware that no one cares about rules in Evil Twin World, and judging by his tan, he already has his retirement villa in Spain ready and waiting.

Lestrade, answering uncomfortable questions that will lead to an early retirement.

Baka! I-it’s not like I’m making this coffee for you, Lestrade.

Apparently running a fever kept me distracted from my “to do” list enough to write more Sherlock/Lestrade even though I wasn’t going to write anything else until series 3. Someone on the rant meme said that less than 2% of the fic on AO3 was S/L, which surprised me because I knew it was a rare pair, but didn’t think it could be that rare. But it is. I looked up the numbers myself, then closed the tab before I could calculate my hit/kudo ratio and feel bad about everything. Meanwhile, the pile of things I need to take to the post office grows and grows.
Sherlock and Lestrade
One of my favourite scenes – I am 100% certain the hat was Lestrade’s idea and he bought it himself.

Writing priorities:

Yuletide letter
original work
Tiger & Bunny fic that has been sitting on various hard drives for two years

Original work should be at the top of that list. Misguided priorities!

And in the end I did nothing to increase the number of S/L fics because I added to something already written. I blame the fever.
