Title: The House of Usher
Author: [livejournal.com profile] saki101
Characters/Pairings: Sherlock Holmes/John Watson, Mrs Hudson, OCs, Roderick Usher/Edgar Corvus, Madeline Usher
Rating: Mature
Word Count: ~13K
Disclaimer: Neither Sherlock, the Sherlock Holmes stories of Arthur Conan Doyle nor The Fall of the House of Usher is mine and no money is being made.
A/N: A fusion of Sherlock: The Abominable Bride and ACD crossed over with The Fall of the House of Usher, written for [livejournal.com profile] piplover for the June 2016 Holmestice Exchange. (Although not essential to the story, if anyone would like to re-read Poe’s The Fall of the House of Usher, it may be found at Project Gutenberg here. Several passages are quoted in the story.)
Summary: Just as one case has been concluded, a new client appears who hopes Sherlock Holmes can shed light on the mysterious deaths of the Ushers and the destruction of their home. While events unfold, Doctor Watson ponders the use of forenames.

Excerpt: Holmes had held up the dagger and grinned at me, pushing away the hair that had fallen into his eyes and smearing muck across his face in the process. The steel blade had glittered in the sunlight as he turned it to read the inscription around the ornate hilt.

“Best not to commit crimes with family heirlooms,” he had observed.

This is a Halloween story, although not the one for the Halloween Challenge over at MFU Scrapbook. The story owes its inspiration to the beautiful photo below, to the mood of Violent Playground and to the people that dwell up in the steeple.

Rating: PG-13
Length: ~1K
Genre: Slash
Disclaimer: I don't own Violent Playground or the works of Poe and no money is being made.
Author's note: This could be described as an AU cross-over between VP and the last verse of The Bells.

Excerpt:

He never did like orders. Not from anyone. Didn’t like to follow. Didn’t want to lead. Not them anyway.
