Word Count: ~3.4K

A/N: Written for the 2016 Spook Me Multi-Fandom Halloween Ficathon, to the prompt: shapeshifter.

Many thanks to my beta listener and plot hole finder, who wishes to remain anonymous, and without whom this fic would never have been finished.

Metamorphosis is also posted on AO3.


Excerpt: Sherlock squinted at the screen and re-played the clip of CCTV footage. I leaned over, but couldn’t see much at that angle. Sherlock handed me the phone and started for the bridge. “You were right, Lestrade. Unless this turns out to be a very elaborate publicity stunt gone wrong, this might be a ten.”

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.

Excerpt: Sherlock stood in shirtsleeves before the piano in the corner, swaying as he played his violin, his back to me. Sunlight slanted through the southern windows, throwing blues and violets over him, greens and golds at his feet.

“You have questions,” he said and raised his bow. His tone was cool; he did not turn around.

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.

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.

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

Excerpt: “…a rising sun lit a ribbon of river, pale rays glinted off helms and swords dotting a dark, muddy road.”
