Title: Penumbra (Chapter One: Meet Me at Moonrise)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] saki101

Rating: NC-17 (for series)
Genre: slash
Word Count: ~6.1K (Chapter One)
Disclaimer: Neither Sherlock nor Dark Shadows is mine and no money is being made.
Preview: John’s grown up with the stories about Holmeswood Manor. They are certainly not going to keep him from interviewing for a residential post there because he cannot afford London on an army pension and there could not possibly be any truth to the tales.
A/N: A gothic romance AU of the Sherlock universe inspired by the universe of Dark Shadows (the television series), presented in four episodes, and written for the Miniseries March Challenge at Fall TV Season Sherlock.

Also posted on AO3.

Excerpt: He flitted across the moonbeams streaming through the windows. When I finally set myself in motion, he had stopped in the last pool of silvery light and was regarding me. There were no flames to colour him there; he was all pallor and darkness.

The room seemed inordinately long as I progressed through it, skirting the benches and pedestals and display cases that seemed to sprout in my path. I thought the shadows about him grew denser as I hastened forward and a fear that he might be swallowed by them before I reached his side gripped me.

He waited, as still and pale as the statues I had passed, except, as I drew near, I could see the pink bloom of his mouth.

Summary: Sherlock finds a way to communicate with John during the Hiatus or maybe John finds a way to communicate with Sherlock. Upon Sherlock's return, there are many things to explain and explore.

An AU where the events following "Many Happy Returns" go very differently.
A/N: An epilogue to the story written for Come at Once: Round 6. [livejournal.com profile] 1electricpirate's evocative prompt, 'give me fire', took my brain on an unexpected journey.

Excerpt: The stitches were tiny and neat, reducing the cross-hatching of wounds to the thinnest of red lines.

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.

Excerpt: “If we have unknown kitten-size mammals in the house, Mrs Hudson will not be pleased,” Sherlock said, massaging Gray’s back.

“Isn’t it Gray’s job to chase interlopers out of his territory?” John asked, his elbows spreading to either side along the mantel for support.

“Maybe that’s why it ran out the door,” Sherlock replied and sat down on the stairs.

[livejournal.com profile] espresso_addict completed a great meme for writers created by [livejournal.com profile] roseveare. As [livejournal.com profile] espresso_addict said in her post, "it's always better to write about writing than to write..." I find that particularly true when the writing's going slowly!

Came part and parcel with the idea for the story: Third (see below), Blue Diamonds, Revisionist, Silk Road, Necropolis (that is a very popular title, I found), Icarus Clipped, C# Minor, Stone Mirror, Fading to Sand, Magnetic Midnight, Index of Coincidence, Night View from the Mind Palace, You Follow Me Down Other Roads, Uncalibrated Measurements, Aberdeen to Euston, Retro, White Satin, Silver Sequins, The Apothecaries’ Garden and Salisbury Plain.

Panic stations! The fic is ready to post/I have to post this tomorrow and I don't have a title: The Après-Ski Affair, Safer

Summary: Not all mysteries are connected to cases.

Excerpt: Sometimes I think I have notes for more stories that I may not tell, than for those that I may. With new names for the protagonists and a setting far from London, perhaps I shall publish the story that follows as complete fiction. It is not that, however.

(Also posted on AO3 in the May 2015 ACD_Holmesfest Collection and on LJ at acd_holmesfest.)

Excerpt: I turned from my consideration of the street to where Holmes lounged beside me. “You’ll let me see to that?” I asked. The flush of his exertions had faded from his cheeks, leaving the cut across one all the more livid in contrast.

He opened his eyes partway. “How much did you wager?”

Genre: Slash
Rating: PG-13
Characters/Pairing: Illya/Napoleon
Warnings: A few characters have wandered in from another DMC film called Around the World Under the Sea. (A video clip which introduces the characters in the film may be viewed here.) They did that in another of my stories, too. It isn’t necessary to read that one first, but having a look at the clip will help, and will also demonstrate that Dr Philip Volker is just as pretty as Illya.
Disclaimer: Don't own any of these characters or their universes and no money is being made!
A/N: At the beginning of The Rosebay Affair: Part IV, Kittridge was going off to Greenland to join a mission headed by a non-UNCLE scientist named Philip Volker. [livejournal.com profile] ride_4ever’s prompts included aurora borealis and dogsleds, so following up on the Greenland mission came to mind immediately.

A beautiful picture has been created for the story by [livejournal.com profile] open_channel_d. It may be viewed here.

Excerpt: The plane droned above clouds tinted pink by the rising sun.

“Straight on ‘til morning,” Napoleon murmured, unbuckling his safety harness and stretching.

Illya eyes swept over the instrument panel and then over his partner. “A bit more northerly than that,” he replied.

Summary: A case and a touch in the dark.

Excerpt: Holmes’s hand closed about my wrist, one finger sliding over my skin beneath my cuff. In the dark, the touch was somehow loud and definitely distracting. He tugged. Thus linked, we went on.

Summary: When the hanging stones had only stood on the plain for a few centuries and the thriving community around them was a crossroads for knowledge and goods, there was a learned man who saw what others didn’t and a well-travelled soldier who had seen wonders and wanted to see more. (Or: first meeting in a very different place and time.)
A/N: Written for [livejournal.com profile] what_alchemy whose generous prompts for the December 2014 Holmestice Exchange included "AUs with a unique twist, magical or otherwise" which lit a strange, blue spark in my head!
Excerpt: “…a rising sun lit a ribbon of river, pale rays glinted off helms and swords dotting a dark, muddy road.”
