OK. I have been having computer issues up the wazoo that last few months, but FINALLY, I almost have everything set up. And y'all know what happens when I finally have my bright, shiny Mac set up and no longer and just using my smartphone and iPad for everything?


I should be completely set up by the end of the weekend (as in, yesterday I was copying files, after work today I went into Kyoto and bought a Japanese keyboard and a track pad (thanks to hurting my hand a year or so ago, I can't use a mouse without pain some times), right now, I'm installing software, and tomorrow after work I pick up a dedicated table for it (I used to have a laptop) and move this bad boy to it's permanent home), and then I am back to writing. :D

[Fic] An Apple A Day Keeps the Limping Doctor Away: The Yellow Farce (Prelude)

Series Title: An Apple A Day Keeps the Limping Doctor Away
Title: The Yellow Farce
Fandom: Sherlock/A Study in Emerald
Status: 1/7
Characters: John Watson, Sherlock Holmes
Warnings: A bit of Lovecraftian horror and a spot of murder.
Summary: Sentiment is not what one needs for Sherlock's work. But it is what one needs for John's.
A/N: I made the mistake of reading some ASiE fic right before going to bed, and then woke up with a very insistent part of me quite instantly telling me about ASiE!Sherlock telling John to get apples and WRITE IT DAMN YOU. So I did. And I'll admit up front, I don't know much about Lovecraft, other than the bits and pieces I've picked up from and gleaned off of pop culture. ^^;;  Not Britpicked (or should that be Albion-picked? heh), so any glaring Americanisms are all on me.

[fic] Why They Actually Do Get On - Ch. 2: Just a Bit

Title: Why They Actually Do Get On
Chapter Title: Just a Bit
Fandom: Sherlock
Status: 2/4
Word Count:3075ish
Warnings: A bit of a gory murder
Summary: Sometimes Sherlock says things that are a bit not good. But John gets it. He does.
A/N: I...yeah, I did not intend for it to take this long to get this chapter done, but work turned into hell ( much overtime...*cry*) so I spent my weekends passed out asleep instead of being productive, then I started getting ideas for the casefic aspect, despite the case not being the point, and had to research, and arrrrgh. Yeah, so, this took way longer than I expected. Sowwy! Un-beta'd and un-britpicked, alas, alack. ^^;;

[fic] Why They Actually Do Get On - Ch. 1

Title: Why They Actually Do Get On
Status: 1/4 [...I think]
Fandom: Sherlock
Word Count:2755
Characters: John Watson, Sherlock Holmes, the folks at the NSY
Warnings: A bit of mention of blood, gore, and experiments gone pbbth.
Summary: There are reasons that Sherlock and John get on so well.
A/N: This happened because, as I was writing Mycroft's take on Sherlock and John for "Why They Get On," I realized all three ficlets could have been taking place over the same day/case, and decided to go from there (decided when I, everybody all together now, got bored at work). Vaguely caseficcy, but only vaguely, since the case isn't actually the point (also, I can't be arsed for all that research - bored at work fic, yo). Gen or pre-slash, depending on however you want to read it. :)

Not brit-picked, alas, alack, so any glaring Americanisms are completely and wholly my fault (I tried to catch as many as I could, but y'all know how it goes). And any overall screwy English is due to me forgetting English, which I do from time to time because I've been living in a non-English speaking country for a decade now and am kinda forgetting how my native language works. XD;;;

Doing short chapters instead of one long fic is an experiment for me, so we'll see how it goes. ^^;;

[fic] Fratres for Violin and Piano

Title: Fratres for Violin and Piano
Fandom: Sherlock
Word Count: 2622
Characters: Sherlock Holmes, Mycroft Holmes, John Watson is just along for the ride
Warnings: Musical catfighting    
Summary: Every year, the Holmes boys pick a duet to play for Mummy. She'd always hoped it would help them get along better. This is, sadly, not the case, but John can see why she does it.
A/N: I was listening to Arvo Part's Fratres for Violin and Piano, and then I suddenly realized, duh, what "fratres" meant, and then, um. This happened.
Just imagine that duet ramped up to 11 for this. >XD;;;
John knew better than to even wonder why when the black car pulled up to him and Sherlock as they were walking home from the nice little Thai place that had just opened. )

[fic] Here There Be

Title: Here There Be
Fandom: Sherlock
Word Count: 862
Characters: Sherlock Holmes
Summary: Because every castle, or palace, as the case may be, has a dungeon.
A/N: Sometimes when I'm bored at work, my fic brain makes nice, wholesome crack. Sometimes it makes something neither nice nor wholesome, because it clearly does not believe in us having nice things. 

This takes place during the Baskerville ep.
Sherlock Holmes has a mind palace. )

[fic] Violin Concerto I

Title: Violin Concerto I
Author: joudama
Fandom: Sherlock
Word Count: 1400ish
Summary: Nighttime is a different world; one in which Sherlock plays music that is unlike him and John's mind plays nightmares that leave him unlike himself.
A/N: I was bored at work (oh, that oft-repeated refrain) and listening to movement II of this violin concerto. This happened. It was originally supposed to be a part of another fic, then it sort of stood up and said no, it wanted to be a solo. And there you go.

I'm working on the next part of Harrow Children, and I am in need of a beta reader for what I've got so far. The fic is really long, so I kinda want to get the first part beta'd so I can have it out of the way so I can make sure it, well, works - it's definitely beginning to twist in new and interesting ways, and I want to make sure it works before it barrels off unstoppably. >XD

Basically, I'd need someone to beta the first 13-15 or so pages (it depends on if I write an unwritten scene or not, which I might do tonight if I don't clean my bathroom instead), which would basically be the first third of the fic (like I said. LONG - the whole thing is 13,600 so far. asdfghjkl;).

Anyone interested?

[fic] A Terrible and Strange Simpatico

Title: A Terrible and Strange Simpatico
Author: joudama
Fandom: Sherlock
Characters: Mycroft Holmes, John Watson
Word Count: 975
Rating: PG
A/N: It occurred to me there was one thing Mycroft and John had in common that very few people seem to really touch on. I dunno, maybe it just jumped out at me.
Summary: It was a terrible and strange simpatico that John Watson and Mycroft Holmes shared; one that could not be put into words and that could not and would not be mentioned even obliquely.

[fic]Doing the Legwork

Title: Doing the Legwork
Author: joudama
Series: Why They Get On (3/3)
Fandom: Sherlock
Word Count: 610
Summary: Mycroft Holmes is quite certain he knows what it is his brother sees in John Watson. And what John Watson sees in his brother.
A/N: I wasn't bored at work this time! ...I was bored at home and not wanting to clean. Oh, we all knew this one was coming; don't know who I was fooling, thinking I'd be able to just write the two. And lol, I actually had to Look Shit Up for this one.

100 Word Drabbles

I've been writing the occasional 100-word FF7 drabble for a comm on Dreamwidth. Since it'd be kind of a pain copy those over multiple journals, I'm going to up them to my AO3 account under one story, and stick that in my master list.

If any of you are interested, they're here: In 100 Words :D

[fic] Sussing It Out

Title: Sussing It Out
Author: joudama
Fandom: Sherlock
Word Count: 530ish
Summary: What Donovan hasn't quite got sussed out yet is who's fucking who.
A/N: Um, this is what happens when a random sentence strikes me AGAIN when I'm supposed to be working but my eyes are glazing over and I'm also contemplating painkillers. ^^;;  I didn't even kind of plan for a sequel or continuation of "Why They Got On," but people seemed to like it, and out of nowhere, I thought about Sally Donovan and her little theories, and, um...yeah, this. I'm fighting off doing Mycroft and making this a right little trilogy, just so y'all all know. So glad today is Friday and no work tomorrow. XD )
Also, like yesterday, not even in the tiniest bit beta'd; like I said, I wrote it on the sly at work while constantly switching windows if anyone was nearby and then stealthily uploaded via my iPad during my lunchbreak (yay, Evernote!)

If any Americanisms slipped in, I apologize in advance. ^^;;

[fic] Why They Get On

Title: Why They Get On
Author: joudama
Fandom: Sherlock
Word Count: 730ish
Summary: Greg reckons he's almost got it figured, why Sherlock and John get on so well.
A/N: Um, this is what happens when a random sentence strikes me when I'm bored at work and hopped on on painkillers. ^^;;

Also, not even in the tiniest bit beta'd; like I said, I wrote it bored at work. If any Americanisms slipped in, I apologize in advance. ^^;;

[fic] 'Cause Really

Title: 'Cause Really
Author: joudama
Fandom: Sherlock
Word Count: 338
Notes: This is inspired by "The Happy Song" by the Poets of the Fall, and really, if you listen to it, you'll completely understand why I heard this song and knew a Moriarty fic based on it HAD to be written.  Moral imperative, and all that. XD

Simple little lyrics, really, that suit Moriarty to a T: "You knew I am a psycho. I told you I'm a psycho. 'Cause really, I'm a psycho. Told you I'm a psycho."

Same as I originally figured "Between a Good Man and a Great One," I thought this would be a full fic. But then I realized, no, this was a character study to go with the Sherlock one. Then it was easy.

Oh, now this is going to be funsies. )

Currently working on Thag 3. It's not very far along, only about 5,500 words, but I think I'm going to try working on the same fic instead of swapping between them, and see how that works for me in terms of actually FINISHING one (especially, ahaha, since this one had a price tag and a promise that I WOULD actually finish it. Ahahahararara...)

I also might dip my toe a bit more into the Sherlock fandom, since I got so much more notice on AO3 for that than any of my recent FF7 fic. ^^;; Not sure, yet. I do know I feel like writing more. I've missed it lots.

[fic] Between a Good Man and a Great One

Title: Between a Good Man and a Great One
Author: joudama
Fandom: Sherlock
Word count: 700ish
Author's Notes: Ahaha, writing Sherlock is hard. >XD I didn't plan to write this today; it just sorta happened. I thought this fic would be longer, but then it went, "No, short is just the right length" and there you go.


The border between a good man and a great man is more than that of a single word, and the gulf between the two is wide. )

Why, why, WHY would someone go to all the trouble of making Sherlock have PTSD for their hurt/comfort fic when JOHN ALREADY DOES WHY WHY WHY?! And Sherlock having ALL THE FEELINGS?!

And speaking as an expat who babbles to herself in Japanese and who has expat friends, you stop babbling to yourself in your second language after about a week back home, fic. Sherlock breaking out into random Spanish is only because you, the writer, thought it'd be HAWT.


I have ALL THE FEELS about this y'all.

I hate when fic tells me more about the writer than about the characters. :/
