It seems you've found my nest. I line it with strange fannish writing, all of which is public. What isn't public is mostly inane and/or self-indulgent. That being said, please feel free to friend away, if you like--I'll probably friend back; I make no claims to being interesting but I'm not terribly private--or visit me at any of my alternate perches.

Complementary (46599 words) by thisprettywren
Chapters: 6/6
Fandom: Sherlock (TV)
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Sherlock Holmes/John Watson
Characters: Sherlock Holmes, John Watson, Irene Adler
Additional Tags: SenseVerse, Alternate Universe, Case Fic, Canon-Typical Violence, Bottle episode
Series: Part 2 of Spectrum
Summary:

com·ple·men·tar·i·ty - (noun /ˌkämpləmenˈtaritē/): a relation between two opposite states or principles that together exhaust the possibilities; the interrelation of reciprocity whereby one thing supplements or depends on the other.

Chapter 6: Blueshift

-------

Holy smokes, it's done. It's done.

[ insert falling-over.gif here ]

I've included downloadable PDF and ePub versions (in the notes at the front of the fic and the beginning of the last chapter), so if that shakes your boat, go for it. All the images mean that the PDF version is probably a little more reliable than the ePub, but I don't actually a) know that for certain; b) know, in fact, what I'm doing; or c) have the ability to test it on all the things. So if you try it and find any issues please let me know.

There will absolutely be a third fic in the series. It's already in progress (can't-stop-won't-stop, haha), but it'll likely be a while before it's ready to be posted, so forewarned is forearmed and all that.

If you see HiddenLacuna give her a giant hug for me, okay? She is amazing and the most dedicated damn beta and good grief have I ever been taking shameless advantage.

Chapter 4: Gravitational Collapse

Chapter 5: Absolute Magnitude

Oops, I just realized I forgot to link ch 4 here. So, um... have two chapters.

Life finally got out of my way enough to get this posted. Those still following along, thanks for your patience. Ch 6 will be up as soon as life (read: PhD comp exams) get out of my way enough to get it finished.

As it says in the note at the end, there is definitely going to be a third fic in this series. (That's been the plan ever since it was clear there needed to be a second fic, actually). But with one chapter to go here, it seems like it might be time to say so officially.

Hey, you know who are wonderful and patient and sanity-saving? Lacuna, Roane, and Adi, that's who. ♥

(And yep, they do finally get out of the flat in this one. You should have seen my excited face.)

Chapter 3: Eclipsing Binary

Then comes the night in early April when Sherlock jumps and John can't follow.


***
As it says in the author's note, this chapter got away from me a bit, so I'm sorry about the long wait between updates. Massive rewrite was massive. (in related news: HiddenLacuna, Roane, and pretty much everyone over at #innercircle are absolute saints.) I should be back on track now, though.

There are updated links to the downloadable versions in the chapter notes, as well.

I've posted the first part of the sequel to Quintessential! (It's going to end up being a three-part series.)

Fair warning: this first chapter is completely shameless porn. The subsequent chapters are going to be in a bit of a different vein as we get back to the mysteries, etc, but... the guys get to have their fun for a bit here.

To mitigate formatting shenanigans, I'm creating my own download links as I go. Check the notes at the top for a PDF or ePub version, if that shakes your boat. I'll keep them updated as I add chapters.

Yellow Ribbon (10897 words) by thisprettywren
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Sherlock (TV)
Rating: Mature
Warning: Graphic Depictions Of Violence
Relationships: Jim Moriarty/John Watson, Sherlock Holmes & John Watson
Characters: Sherlock Holmes, John Watson, Jim Moriarty
Summary: People do get so sentimental about their pets.

The archive warning tag doesn't really accurately convey what's happening here, so let me add: Abduction, torture, and (non-consensual) animal play.

This is that dark AU-of-the-SenseVerse-AU I've mentioned a few times. It definitely doesn't fit into the timeline of which Quintessential is a part, but it grew out of contemplating one of the darker aspects of that universe; namely, a comparison airynothing made between the perception of aphones and animals. It functions according to the rules of that universe, but nothing that happens here takes place in the canon of the Spectrum series, 'kay?

(for my kink_bingo square: Animal Play)
