Slipstream illustration wip

Lineart of the illustration for chapter 23 of my Tour de France AU Slipstream. Chapter 22 is finished and currently with my beta. I hope to post it later this week and also endeavour to start writing chapter 23. All in all, the fic will have 25 chapters, so for those waiting for it to be completed: the end is in sight.

Charity art raffle to help German flood victims

To honour Benedict Cumberbatch’s birthday on Monday, 19th July, and to encourage donations to help the victims of the catastrophic floods that have recently hit parts of Germany, I’m doing an ART RAFFLE. I will give away these three original pencil and coloured pencil drawings (two of Benedict and one of Smaug).

To enter the raffle, you must donate to www.aktion-deutschland-hilft.de/en/

Every donation of 5 Euros counts as one raffle ticket. So if you donate 5 Euros, you get one ticket, if you donate 10 Euros, you get two tickets etc. Proof of donation must be shown to me via DM or in the replies/reblogs/retweets of this post by Monday, 19th July, 23h GMT. You may of course black out personal information in the donation proofs. Then the random number generator will choose the THREE WINNERS.

First person chosen gets first pick of the art, second winner second pick, and third winner will get the art that’s left. Shipping is on me. You must be comfortable with giving me your postal address.

Please reblog/retweet to spread the word.

Pridelocked art and fics

This was my artwork for the brilliant PRIDELOCKED project by @ohlooktheresabee

I’m still blown away by the quality of art and fic and other fandom contributions such as music and fanvids, and even more so by the people who have felt inspired by my watercolour to write stories and even poetry. Below are the works based on this art:

The Scarlet Cross by @a-different-equation

Perfection by @sherlockwatson-holmes

X Marks the Spots by @chriscalledmesweetie

Enter the Silence by @enterthetadpole and @writingoutloud

Pridelocked 2021 Poetry (Chapter 10: Study) by @arwamachine

Thank you so much for your poetry and fics. I hope I haven’t forgotten anybody. If yes, please drop me a note and I’ll add a link to your fic.

Fic recs: talking

Anonymous asked:

Hii! Could you recommend me any fics in which Sherlock talks about his sexuality with John or anyone else? Like a roommates talk he.

This is a bit awkward to say, but I got a kink for virgin sherlock, so if it includes that, so much better. (Obviously no problem if not!)

Also, thank you for all your recommendations, they’re priceless!

Hey Nonny!

I have lots of Virgin Sherlock fics, and fics dealing with sexuality:

Let me know if these aren’t enough, or if any of y’all have stuff you’d like to share! 🙂

khorazir said: He talks about his sexuality with John in most of my fics (basically while trying to figure it out), rather prominently in Rewind, Slipstream and Enigma – and with the help of a self-drawn manual in Putting up Shelves.

Erosion by saintscully(E, 53,386 w., 12 Ch. || Post TFP, Slow Burn, Friendds to Lovers, Mutual Pining, Case Fic, Christmas, Implied/Referenced Suicide, Implied/Referenced Rape/Non-Con, Minor Character Death, Emotional/Psychological Abuse, Psychological Trauma, Divorce, Estrangement, Family Issues, PTSD, Medical Conditions, Mentions of Dementia) – Sherlock’s father falls ill, leaving the surviving family members broken and rudderless. James Sholto shows up in London unexpectedly, his intentions unclear. John has to navigate the consequences of crime, illness and death and their impact on his frayed relationship with Sherlock.

Rewind by khorazir (M, 47,553 w., 5 Ch. || Time Travel AU || Post-S4 / TFP Doesn’t Exist, Victor Trevor, Hurt/Comfort, Angst, Drug Use/Addiction, Attempted Sexual Assault, Friends to Lovers, Magical Realism, First Kiss, Demisexual Sherlock, Big Brother Mycroft, Kid Sherlock, Bullying, Inexperienced Sherlock) – When Sherlock is six years old, he finds out that strange things happen when the mole on his neck is touched under certain circumstances: it switches him back in time. Over the years, he discovers both the advantages and disadvantages of being thus granted a way to relive certain events, to reconsider decisions and remedy mistakes – until an accidental touch sends him back to Barts morgue on 29th January 2010, thus undoing eight years of acquaintance with John Watson. Is this a most unfortunate incident, a curse, even? Or is it indeed a second chance to finally shape his relationship with John the way it should have been from the beginning?

Slipstream by khorazir(M, 242,642+ w., 21/25 Ch. || WIP || Tour de France / Sports Cycling AU || Room Sharing, Cycling Injuries, Discussions of Drugs/Doping, Awkward Romance, Hurt/Comfort, Bickering, Case Fic, Strangers to Friends to Lovers, Internalized Homophobia, Mutual Pining, Bed Sharing, Jealousy, Bi John / Demi Sherlock) –It’s going to be the last Tour de France for professional cyclist John Watson. Despite the hardships of cycling more than 3000 kilometres in three weeks, in blistering heat and torrential rain, over dangerous cobblestones in northern France and the mountains of the Alps and the Pyrenees, battling thirst, hunger, injury and exhaustion, not to mention bitchy rivals, doping allegations, and the ever scoop-hungry press, he is going to enjoy the ride, damn it. That’s what John keeps telling himself – until he meets his new teammate, Sherlock Holmes, who adds a whole new list of problems as well as an extra dose of excitement to John’s life.

Enigma by khorazir (M, 289,667 w., 23 Ch. || Codebreaker / WWII / Imitation Game-Inspired AU || Case Fic, Espionage, Period-Typical Homophobia / Sexism, Pining Sherlock, Inexperienced / VirginSherlock, Implied / Referenced Drug Use, Non-Graphic Violence) – It’s the autumn of 1941, war is raging in Europe, German U-boats are raiding Allied convoys in the Atlantic, the Luftwaffe is bombing English cities, and the cryptographers at Bletchley Park are working feverishly to decode their enemies’ encrypted communications. One should consider this challenge and distraction enough for capricious codebreaker Sherlock Holmes. But the true enigmas are yet waiting to be deciphered: an unbreakable code, a strange murder, and the arrival of Surgeon Captain John H. Watson of the Royal Navy.

Fic recs: time travel

Time Travel, Johnlock Style

I’ve started another time travel story! Well, that isn’t good news for the rest of my unfinished WIPs, but it’s not as if I can stop myself. There’s nothing that is so much fun as confounding Reichenbach with a few paradoxes– all leading to Johnlock, of course.

I’m taking the opportunity to offer up some of my favorite time-travel stories in the fandom and ask for your recommendations.

Rewind, by @khorazir / 47553 words. Post Season/Series 04; TFP does not exist. When Sherlock is six years old, he finds out that strange things happen when the mole on his neck is touched under certain circumstances: it switches him back in time. Over the years, he discovers both the advantages and disadvantages of being thus granted a way to relive certain events, to reconsider decisions and remedy mistakes – until an accidental touch sends him back to Barts morgue on 29th January 2010, thus undoing eight years of acquaintance with John Watson. Is this a most unfortunate incident, a curse, even? Or is it indeed a second chance to finally shape his relationship with John the way it should have been from the beginning?

Like all @khorazir stories, this one is beautifully written and plotted, and it has art as well! If you haven’t read it yet, you should!

Nothing Happened in Belarus by @discordantwords / 6589 words. Season/Series 01, Season/Series 04. Six years, give or take. And one night where nothing happened.

This is truly one of my favorite stories. I can’t even describe it without taking away some of the pleasure you will find in discovering it for yourself. Just read it.

A Winter Walk by @cathedralcarver / 3382 words. Post-Reichenbach. Time is the longest distance between two places.

Like almost every cathedral_carver story, this one makes me cry. Sherlock, returning from exile, runs into John from the future. Bittersweet, hopeful. 

I’ve written two of my own:

Concurrence by @calaisreno / 70876 words. Episode s01e03 The Great Game. BBC Sherlock is sent back to 1880 by James Moriarty, for reasons that are not at first clear to Sherlock. There he meets Victorian John Watson. They fall in love, of course, and Sherlock promises to bring John back to 2010, where they will not need to hide their relationship, but something goes wrong and they are separated. While John is trying to navigate 2010 without his partner, Sherlock is learning what Moriarty is planning. 

This was one of the first stories I posted on AO3, and still my favorite child (but don’t tell the others). It’s about to reach its third anniversary, and ready to hit the 400 milestone, so somebody go there and toss a kudo at it! 

While You Were Dead by @calaisreno​ / 4210 words. Reichenbach Return. On a stormy night at the hospital, John gets a second chance to say something he regrets not saying. This is part of the Many Happy Returns series I wrote last year. 

Marked for Later / Haven’t yet read:

tomorrow will dawn the same as today by @hudders-and-hiddles / 17169 words. Episode: s03e02 The Sign of Three. Groundhog Day AU. Sherlock wakes up on a grey London morning, alone. Tomorrow he’ll do the same. Whatever he does, wherever he goes, however his night might end, tomorrow he’ll do the same.

I love the movie and have had this one marked for a while. 

The Case of the Moebius Trip by Bitenomnom. 129,218 words. Post-Reichenbach. When John finally gives in and accepts a case for the first time since Sherlock fell eight months ago, he finds himself in a unique position: in possession of what his client calls a time machine, and desperate enough to give it a go. If it works, he could travel back in time. If it works, he could save Sherlock.

Please share your favorite time travel stories, whether they are your own or written by someone else! 

Thanks a lot for the rec. In case nobody else has mentioned it, there’s also the brilliant A River Without Banks by Chryse.
