Sherlock Fic Rec

Breaking a silence of more than a year to rec a fic.

It is often tempting (I well know) for a fanfic writer to want to take on huge mythic, supernatural or spiritual themes, but it is also very hard to do it well.  A story can grow and take on a life of its own, but in the end will the resolution match the ambition?  Sadly, often it does not. 

This fic by definewisdom does.  It is measured, coherent and consistent throughout, while maintaining depth and feeling.  Epic in an understated way.  Yadda, more words of praise. 

Title: Come and See
Fandom: Sherlock (BBC)
Summary: John Watson is Death. He wasn't supposed to kill the cabbie at the end of A Study in Pink, Sherlock Holmes was supposed to die that night. But Sherlock's still alive and now the world is starting to fall apart. The events of the whole series seen in a slightly more supernatural light. Also featuring "Anthea", Harry and Sebastian as the other horsemen of the apocalypse, and exploring what it takes to become a myth.

Website update

If anyone is looking for my fanfic website Storygate, or trying to follow links to it from lj or other places, this is to let you know that it is currently down. It was on GeoCities, which has closed. I believed that I would be able to transfer it directly to the Yahoo web hosting, but of course it hasn't been as easy as that. I am at this point planning to reopen my fic site, but I'm not sure when it will be operational again.

I'll update here when I know more. Thanks for your patience!


Edit: StoryGate is now back up and running. Find it at

Merlin fic rec - The Knights have a Thousand Eyes

Wonderful long story.  The characters are the thing.  Arthur is himself, but the deeper, more admirable self he should be.  Merlin is spot on.  But the knights.  Oh, the knights.  They've become part of the ensemble cast; distinct parts of a band of adorable comedians, brave and true.  I think this is an instant classic.

The Knights have a Thousand Eyes
Rating: R
Warnings/Spoilers: Slight spoilers for season 1. Some swearing. Some sexual context.
Pairing: Merlin/Arthur
Summary: In which Arthur attempts to teach his knights, his knights attempt to woo Merlin and Arthur is definitely not jealous....
