Warnings: canon-compliant discussions of drug abuse
Summary: Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson go on vacation in Cornwall. What follows is madness, murder, and a case of revenge out of darkest Africa. Sherlock Holmes produced a work titled A Study of the Chaldean Roots in the Ancient Cornish Language: With Observations on the Early Tin Trade in West Cornwall from the experience and John Watson wrote The Devil's Foot. Make of that what you will.
Notes: Dear k_e_p (language escapes) my working title for this story was Some Pterosaurs Were Quadrupeds, or This Title Is Unrelated to the Story But was a Cool Fact so I Used it as a Placeholder and I tried very valiantly to work dinosaurs (even though yes, Pterosaurs are NOT dinosaurs) into the story, but I failed. It's my one regret. Otherwise, I thoroughly enjoyed writing this. An enormous please and thank you to my betas. They're the reason this is as good as it is.

Title: A Policeman's Lot Is Not A Happy One
Verse: Star Trek: The Next Generation
Characters/Pairings: James Moriarty (hologram),
"Marguerite Adler", Dr. Katherine Pulaski
Warnings: None for triggers. This story takes place
several years after the Star Trek: TNG episode "Ship in a
Bottle", and contains a number of references to events in both
that episode and "Elementary, Dear Data". Notwithstanding this
fact, it actually does arise from a prompt or prompts supplied in
sanguinity's signup post.
Summary:"I must say, Professor, you've come a
long way since we first met. I daresay nowadays you sound more
like Sherlock Holmes himself than you do an evil mastermind."

Summary: John’s birthday is memorable in more ways than one.
A/N: Dear scifric,
I was writing a magic fic, but I didn't like how it was coming out, so instead I wrote this, trying to honor your request for some humor and unfiness. It turned into a sort of-kind of thematic PWP more than anything else….......
I hope you enjoy.

Title: the good fight
Characters/Pairings: Joan Watson& Sherlock Holmes (tho it can be read as platonically shippy as well), Joan Watson & Sherlock Holmes & Alfredo Llamosa
Warnings: somewhat graphic, though brief, depiction an autopsy-like medical procedure in a dream sequence; mentions of physical assault, psychological abuse and drug use (in connection with the s3 finale and the Oscar Rankin storyline.)
Summary: Joan Watson seems to be Brooklyn’s very own patron saint of lost causes and Sherlock has a few things to say about it. Post-relapse early s4 AU (though fairly compliant with canon, plot-wise.)

Author's Note. About this work's timeline: unless I misunderstand Elementary's timeline from 3.24 ("A Controlled Descent") through 4.03 ("Tag, You're Me"), and despite the customary hiatus between seasons three and four, we only get three days' time between 3.24 and 4.01 and one day between 4.01 and 4.02. In this fic, I have expanded the timeline to span three weeks, and so the first section begins about one week after Sherlock's relapse. The events of 4.01 and 4.02 this fic is compliant with are scattered throughout the story in the following sections. In this timeline, the suicide of Jonathan Bloom as witnessed by Sherlock (in 4.01) does not occur.

Verse: Without a Clue
Characters/Pairings: Reginald ‘Sherlock Holmes’ Kincaid, Dr. John Watson
Word Count: 7,700
Summary: Having recovered from the shock of Dr. Watson being the true detective and ‘Sherlock Holmes’ being an actor, Watson’s publisher has become more enthusiastic about the fictional aspect of the stories and is insisting Watson insert some romance by finding himself a temporary fiancée. Luckily Kincaid has an old friend he believes is perfect for the job, and so ‘Miss Mary Morstan’ makes her entrance. True love does not ensue, but she does turn out to be most useful in the work that they do.

Verse: BBC Sherlock
Warnings: mentions of canon-typical medical gore
Summary: Molly couldn’t understand the point, really. The movies were so silly, with manufactured crises over which one to pick, who was better. Can’t she just have both? Why does one have to be better? Can’t she have two different lovers, and they fit the bits of her that are missing and they all make a puzzle together?
Notes: I hope this suits! I aimed for M-rated and missed by a mile...Landed directly in fluff town.

Verse: Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century
Characters/Pairings: Sherlock Holmes/John Watson, Sherlock Holmes/robot!John Watson, Inspector Beth Lestrade

Summary: In 1910, years after failing to defeat Moriarty, Sherlock reunites with John and offers his help with a case…as hard as it is to believe the case is about bees.
Disclaimer: None of these characters are mine; they are property of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. These are the work of those who have reimagined his creations over the years – of which I am only playing in the sandbox of their silver-screen work. Any and all errors within this, are entirely my own.
Spoilers: Sherlock Holmes: a Game of Shadows, as well as mentions of Sherlock Holmes: the Golden Years movies, & They Might Be Giants.
Note: I hope I did not misunderstand or misinterpret your prompt request regarding Mary. If I did, please let me know.

Title: The Case of the Meddling Siblings
Recipient: milverton @ AO3 (koshartu )
Verse: BBC Sherlock
Warnings: References to drug use/abuse; discussions of sexuality
Summary: Mycroft and Harry Watson team up to send John and Sherlock on a case to distract a Sherlock who’s been pining after John. And Harry, at least, is determined to get the boys together. Two sets of Holmes & Watson shenanigans ensue. (post-S2 AU)
Notes: This story grew well beyond what I initially intended, in part because I had a lot of fun using about 2/3 of the awesome prompt ideas, even though the recipient offered them as separate suggestions (e.g., Mycroft & Harry interacting, case!fic, pining!Sherlock, something to do with travel). So this is just Part 1, to be continued after reveal (on AO3)! I hope that’s it’s a satisfying beginning. Happy Holmestice, dear recipient! :)
Also, a big shoutout to my betas and Britpicker (to be named after the reveal) — they were tremendously helpful! However, I rewrote substantially after the Britpicking, and if I introduced any new errors in as a result, the fault is entirely mine. (Feel free to point them out if you spot any!)
