Backwards Epiphany (Sherlock birthday fic!) (Sherlock, gen, PG)
sherlock holmes, mad bad and dangerous to know, keepers of london, sherlock and john
Hi, everybody!

Here's the story I wrote to celebrate Sherlock Holmes's birthday - traditionally given as January 6th, though no unequivocal confirmation exists in canon. It's gen, rated PG, and includes nearly the whole cast of characters. I really wanted to write something in which Sherlock and John are both tremendously pleased with themselves and each other by the end.

Many, many thanks to kate_lear for her painstaking beta and Britpicking.

And I'd like to pimp sherlock_remix before I forget - sign-ups begin on Monday - please join in!

As always, I'd love to hear what you think.

Blrlblrlblr so cute. *gibbers* But Sherlock being a dick about John's birthday and Mycroft being a dick about Sherlock's and who the hell is Gregson anyway and then bat!lock and John Goodall and the chimps and the whole thing with SUPERNINTENDO CHALMERS and I love me some good bro-active Lestrade/John and this is the cutest thing ever okay

John thought it was a safe bet to assume he had chocolate smeared somewhere on his face, given the gooeyness of the cake and Sherlock’s little smirk, but what Sherlock didn’t know was that he too carried a trace of frosting on his cheek (not to mention a milk mustache of noble proportions) when he reached for his violin to drown out the sound of John singing “Happy Birthday.”

blrblrbrlbrlblrblrrlrlbrl WHY CAN'T I HOLD ALL THESE FEELS

Heeee! I'm so pleased that you enjoyed this, and that you liked the chimps and Supernintendo Chalmers, which were two of my favorite bits too!

Thank you for this tremendously cheering feedback!

I love the ending and Sherlock's interpretation of how to celebrate his birthday. Very sweet (like the cake!). Kudos!
