Title: Polaris
Author: PipMer
Length: 6300 words
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Relationships: Sherlock Holmes/John Watson, Sherlock Holmes & John Watson, Mary Morstan/John Watson
Characters: Sherlock Holmes, John Watson, Greg Lestrade, Mary Morstan
Additional Tags: Alternate Reality, Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence, Fluff, Angst, Happy Ending, Friendship, Romance, Season/Series 03 Spoilers, 5+1 Things, Birthday Fic, Retirement!Lock

Summary: In every possible universe, and in any conceivable reality - one thing always remains constant:  Sherlock Holmes loves John Watson.

Author's Notes: A late late birthday gift for my friend [livejournal.com profile] opaljade. I hope you like it!

This is formatted as a  5 + 1 story. The first section is canon compliant, taking place during The Sign of Three. The next four sections are divergence from canon, showing four alternate ways events could have transpired. And the final +1 part - well, I hope that it's self explanatory.

Special thanks to both [livejournal.com profile] prettybirdy979 and [livejournal.com profile] batik96 for beta duties, cheerleading and encouragement. You are the best! And much gratitude to [livejournal.com profile] arianedevere for use of her transcript, which is found here.

Just one final note: yes, the quote at the beginning is from a Wikipedia article, here.  I chose to include it because, in my mind, it is the perfect metaphor for the story I am trying to tell.

Title: Love Actually
Writer: PipMer
Status of work: Complete
Characters and/or pairings: Sherlock/John
Rating: G
Warnings, kinks & contents: fluff, humor, first kiss, dialogue-only, no angst
Length: 250 words

Author's note: So this is just a tiny ficlet that popped into my head yesterday. I've had a writing dry spell lately, I think due both to working crazy hours (52 hours of overtime for 2 weeks) and a general lack of confidence. Hopefully this will help pull me out of the slump.

Since I really, really suck at titles - yes, I stole this one from the movie I watched last night. Hopefully it's at least a little bit relevant. Dialogue-only fic. Hope you enjoy!


Summary: Love tends to rear its head at the most inconvenient time.



Love Actually )

Title: Unspoken
Writer: PipMer
Status of work: Complete
Characters and/or pairings: Sherlock/John unresolved, Mycroft Holmes, Irene Adler
Rating: Teen
Contents: missing scene, pre-slash, drugged!John, mutual pining, angst, prompt fill, John's Missing Wednesday
Warnings: non-consensual drug use, spoilers for The Sign of Three
Length: 2800 words

Summary: Sherlock wanted to test a hypothesis. About John. He wanted a question answered that he couldn’t just ask, at least not under normal conditions, because John would never tell him the truth about that.


Author's note: This was written for Part A of the prompt found here. Many thanks to both [livejournal.com profile] prettybirdy979 and batik for betaing and for awesome suggestions/feedback. Also much gratitude given to Ariane_Devere for use of her transcripts, which are found here.

Hello, folks! Since I rarely post fic in this journal anymore, I'm leaving a link here to my most recent story on AO3, Red Number Day. I just posted the final chapter today. Some of you have had a large part in the shaping of this story, some of you have had the pleasure of listening to me whine about it ad nauseaum, and some of you don't know what the heck I'm talking about. I'd be pleased if you'd check it out. It's my longest story to date, and my first magical realism fic. Fair warning: it's quite a bit angstier than my usual fare, but I do promise a satisfying ending.

Happy Holidays!!

Title:  Never Boring
Author:  PipMer
Word Count:  221
Characters:  Sherlock, John
Pairing:  Sherlock/John
Rating:  G
Warnings:  None
Genre:  221b ficlet, fluff, established relationship, POV John

Summary: John Watson often wonders what it is that Sherlock Holmes sees in him.

A/N:  This came about because of a challenge thrown at me by [livejournal.com profile] prettybirdy979. I was telling her how my best friend finds the character of John Watson more physically attractive than Sherlock. She responded by saying how John is attractive, whereas Sherlock has beauty. Then I responded with 'beauty, brains and brilliance.' She then told me she wanted me to write a 221b with those words. So I did. The relevant words are in bold and italics.

Title: A Matter of Trust
Author: PipMer
Characters/Pairings: Sherlock/John pre-slash, Mycroft Holmes, Harry Waton, Original Character
Rating: Teen
Genre:  Friendship, pre-slash, angst, trust issues, families by choice, holmestice gift fic
Warnings: Drug Use, Minor Character Death
Word Count:: 8255

Summary:: It is a well-known fact that Dr John Hamish Watson has trust issues. What most people fail to realise is that there are two sides to every coin, and that every phrase has a double meaning. And Sherlock Holmes? Well. Let’s just say he has trust issues of his own.



A/N: This was written for [livejournal.com profile] yeomanrand and [livejournal.com profile] shinychimera for the 2012 holmestice gift exchange.  Many thanks go out to my britpickers [livejournal.com profile] debriswoman and [livejournal.com profile] thesmallhobbit. To [livejournal.com profile] prettybirdy979 goes my undying gratitude for not only being my longsuffering beta, but cheerleader and fellow brainstormer as well.

Dialogue from “A Study in Pink” was taken from arianedevere’s transcript of the episode found in her livejournal.

Although I tried to make it clear in the telling, I want to play it safe and say that the overdose depicted in this story is accidental, not a suicide attempt. I don’t want to unintentionally trigger anybody.

Title:  I'll be Holmes for Christmas (or Checkmate, Brother)
Author:  PipMer
Characters:  John, Sherlock, Mycroft, Mummy
Pairing:  Sherlock/John
Rating:  Teen
Genre:  Humour, Angst, Friendship, Romance, Pre-Slash, Prompt Fic
Warnings:  None
Word Count:  8,861

Summary:  The Holmes brothers' rivalry continues as Mycroft manipulates and Sherlock schemes.  The result?  Christmas Dinner, Mummy, and men in suits.  What more could one want?  Sequel to "A Chess Game Between Brothers."


Author's Notes:  This is in response to a prompt made on my tumblr by [livejournal.com profile] maladroitoracle  Any chance of you continuing that Sherlock Christmas fic? I love reading about Sherlock's mother but I'd be happy with anything you wrote!

The fic referred to in the prompt is here.   You probably should read that one first to know what's going on.  But not to worry, that one is nowhere near the monster that this one is.  

Not only is this a response to [livejournal.com profile] maladroitoracle's prompt, it also serves as a gift in celebration of her earning her MA, and also as a get-well-soon fic.  It is dedicated as well to [livejournal.com profile] prettybirdy979, since it's a continuation of her prompt, and she specifically requested men in suits :D

Please excuse any errors in British terminology or in time needed to travel from London to Sussex, since this is unbeta'd and unbrit-picked.  I did the best I could, and I hope it satisfies.

Additional Notes:  I envisioned Margery Avery-Holmes in appearance as Rick Castle's mother, played by Susan Sullivan in the TV show "Castle".  This is a very bad image, but this is the picture of her I had in mind when writing this, except her hair would be a bit longer and pulled up: Margery Avery-Holmes   

I hope you enjoyed this.  Happy Holidays, Merry Yuletide, and whatever else you may celebrate.  May the new year shower you with blessings.

Summary:  At Sherlock and John's New Year's Eve party, Mycroft gets drunk and causes a scene.


A/N:  This is a sequel to Orbiting Bodies and A Kiss is Just a Kiss. Because the first two had a delightfully unexpected response, and because it's fun.  Apparently this is now a series.

Summary:  Someone comes to certain conclusions as they observe Sherlock and John acting as party hosts.

A/N:  [livejournal.com profile] maladroitoracle is almost finished with her thesis, so I thought I would write her a little drabble as a reward. She requested an outsider's POV on Sherlock's feelings towards John. This is what I whipped up. Congratulations, my friend :)

Chapter 1



A/N:  Tremendous thanks to all you wonderful readers who left input and suggestions for me. If you’ve read the previous chapter’s comments then you’ll know in what direction this story is headed. That being said, I've put the rest of the notes at the end of the chapter to avoid spoilers.

Special mention goes here to [livejournal.com profile] drinkingcocoa and [livejournal.com profile] treelight for their contributions to the storyline. I took their suggestions and ran with it, and I had loads of fun in the process. Thank you so much, guys! I hope that this satisfies. 

Here is a mini-challenge to test for how eagle-eyed my readers are. In the previous chapter, I made a subtle, one-line reference to a comment thread on John’s blog. If you’re not familiar with John’s blog, you can find it here. The first person to identify it correctly, both on AO3 and on LJ, will receive a wee 221b ficlet from a prompt of their choosing.

Genre:  Friendship, angst/fluff, bromance/romance (voted on by the readers)
Rating:  PG

Summary:  John Watson and Sherlock Holmes had known each other for seven years, five months and 26 days.  Captain Watson decided it was high time for him to let his friend know exactly what he meant to him.  Dr. Watson, on the other hand, was less than enthusiastic about the whole thing.


A/N:  Just a fun little foray into John and Sherlock's relationship.  You, the reader, get to decide which way their relationship goes.  Should it be bromance, or romance?  Leave me a note in a comment to let me know your preference.   Written in a rush, not beta'd or britpicked, I do hope you enjoy, regardless.

Rating: G
Genre: Gen, angst, friendship
Spoilers: Reichenbach
Word Count: 856

Summary: As he sits in a cafe updating his blog, he is surprised by the appearance of someone unexpected. 


A/N:  If this looks familiar, that's because this is a revised scene from one of my WIP's.  The setting and POV have been changed, but the effect should be the same.  I wanted to see how it would work as a one-shot, and I was curious to see how this version would be received.   Just trying to flex my writing muscles a bit.  Thank you for the indulgence.
