Fashion Forward (Sherlock [BBC, 2010], gen, PG-13 - John, Sherlock)

Hi, everybody!

So, what would you say if I said Sherlock Holmes, Supermodel? Because that's the premise with which this story started (even before I saw this inspiring post by sonicbookmark). Despite that and my previous foray into this fandom, I swear I am not a clotheshorse; in fact, I can barely dress myself, as anyone who's met me in real life can attest. Anyway. This is far less crack-ish than it sounds. It's set immediately after "A Study in Pink," and is a companion piece of sorts to "Sheep's Clothing," this time John's thoughts on his new flatmate.

And let me just take a minute to brag about my beta, oxoniensis. She does such lovely work, Britpicking and also offering kind and incisive comments, and yet, when I tried to thank her, she brushed it aside, complimented me, and bought me a gift. Because that's just how she rolls. She is ridiculously wonderful.

So, with her help, I present Sherlock Holmes, Supermodel. 4,439 words, John POV, gen.

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