Disclaimer: Neither A Midsummer Night's Dream nor Sherlock is mine and no money is being made.
Summary: Mike introduces John to Mrs Hudson, who has a room to let. Sherlock resides in Regent's Park when he's in London. It's only a short flight to Baker Street.
Notes: A stand-alone AU of the Sherlock universe crossed with A Midsummer Night's Dream written for the Spook-Me Multi-Fandom Halloween Ficathon in response to the prompt: dark faeries.

Warning: Strange things ahead (blood-drinking moths, for example).

Excerpt: “Nothing ever happens to me,” John said, meeting Ella’s detached gaze. He could look someone straight in the eye and not give away a thing. The skill had been as valuable in his career as when he played poker. His therapist glanced down to scratch at her notebook. She had perfected the same technique.

John looked beyond her. Outside the firmly closed windows, bare tree branches scratched at the pale grey page of the sky.

"Anymore," he added silently.

Fandoms: Sherlock Holmes - Arthur Conan Doyle/Rappaccini's Daughter - Nathaniel Hawthorne
Characters/Pairings: Sherlock Holmes/John Watson, Mrs Hudson, Mike Stamford
Rating: PG-13
Genre: Slash, historical fiction
Word Count: ~10.4K
Disclaimer: Neither Rappaccini's Daughter nor the Sherlock Holmes stories are mine and no money is being made.
Summary: Watson hopes to distract Holmes during a lull between cases by reading him a Hawthorne story involving doctors and poisons.
Notes: I always felt Rappaccini's Daughter could have ended differently.

Excerpt: Over the top of my newspaper, I watched Holmes rise from his seat. He walked to the window and peered out, his pipe clenched between his teeth. It was the third time he had made the journey to the window in a quarter hour. I waited for his announcement of a visitor. I listened for the sound of carriage wheels, the knock upon the downstairs door. The street remained quiet, the door-knocker still, even the lowering clouds I could see above the buildings over the road held in their rain.

Rating: PG-13

Disclaimer: Neither Frankenstein nor Sherlock is mine and no money is being made.
Summary: What if Dr Frankenstein had had Dr Watson to keep him right? A story in which Sherlock's mother's maiden name is Frankenstein and Dr Watson has been invalided home towards the end of the Napoleonic Wars...
Notes: The seed for this story was planted when I saw the play, Frankenstein, with Mr Cumberbatch in the role of the scientist, and thought that every genius needs a John Watson.

Excerpt: “We are all egoists,” he said. “Every child likes to hear the story of his beginnings, the tale of his parents’ courtship, the events surrounding his birth, the parts of his story he cannot know himself.”
