"Nothing Under My Skin But Light" (John/Lestrade, NC-17, Sherlock+John bodyswap)

Hi, everybody!

I ran sherlock_remix again this year and wanted to try something different once more - last year I wrote John/Sherlock and this time I wanted to write John/Lestrade. So I picked lady_ganesh's amazing fic "Under the Skin" to work with. It's a Sherlock-John bodyswap that ends with Sherlock as the least cherubic Cupid ever, getting John and Lestrade together. It is, frankly, irresistible.

My thanks to oxoniensis for her frank and thoughtful work betaing and Britpicking, and to kate_lear for her encouragement along the same lines. Title from "On Turning Ten" by Billy Collins.

As always, I'd love to hear what you think.
it is a love story, because it's true, reciprocity?

"Coded To Match" (John/Sherlock, Teen)

I also wrote three bonus remixes this year, one of which was for coloredink's adorable "Love Means Never Having To Say You’re Sorry." This one was fun to write because I got to work with the whole fic, its theme, and it is always enjoyable to write Sherlock being a petulant dumbass who cannot come to grips with his own emotions. It really is a good thing he's so pretty. (My thanks to oxoniensis for a super-quick and effective beta and Britpick.)

sammy is concentrating!, or is this baby sherlock?

"We Are the Only Two Speakers of Our Language" (Sherlock + Grandmère, gen, PG-13)

I took a scene from igrockspock's awesome "The December War." The hint in the original story of Sherlock's French grandmother teaching him how to cook was too much for me to resist, so I yielded to temptation. Title from Julia Cho's The Language Archive. Thanks again to oxoniensis, who really caught the spirit of this piece and was tremendously helpful as usual.
