"Redrawing the Maps (the Handle This Remix)" - John/Sherlock, mature

Hi, everybody!

I ran Sherlock Remix again this year and wrote five stories for the three challenges. The first was this one, a remix of nox_candida's adorable story All of My Maps Have Been Overthrown. The original story features a John who has been transformed into a woman by Moriarty, and then focuses on how that doesn't change Sherlock's feelings for John. I wanted to tackle what John would make of his own transformation, and to my delight found that the John in my head decided to have some fun with it. My thanks to yalublyutebya and kate_lear for betaing and Britpicking!

wonko the sane, counterpoint, steady, thinking, john watson

"Immediate Assignment" - John + Mary, Mary + Mycroft, Anthea + Mary; PG-13

This was the first pinch-hit I picked up: a remix of chibifukurou's Of Brothers (and Side-kicks). I really enjoyed getting to think about what John would look like to someone on the edges of his life rather than fully implicated in it. My thanks to thesmallhobbit and kate_lear for betaing and Britpicking.

it is a love story, because it's true, reciprocity?

"Clerestory" - John/Sherlock; mature

And this was my second pinch-hit, for yalublyutebya's delightful story Friends with Benefits. I had a very clear image in my head of Sherlock's mind palace, particularly a clerestory (a row of windows high above eye-level, meant for letting in light and/or air). My thanks to nox_candida for the beta and missyvortexdv for the Britpick!

"Admissions" - John + Sherlock, Anthea + John, John + Mary; PG

And I introduced a new challenge into Sherlock Remix this year, based on the wonderful girl_wonder's spn_retold challenge. Participants were invited to write a story based on a single prompt: there's an intruder in 221B. Three stories were written, and mine was one of them. My thanks to thesmallhobbit for betaing and Britpicking!

so bloody gorgeous, candlelight, kind, the one she loves

"Together in This Place" - John/Sherlock; teen

And, lastly, I wrote a remix of a kate_lear story, as I do every year, and this year I got to work with her amazing story The Love Song of Dr. John H. Watson. I don't think this fic ever got to the image with which I started writing, which was that the designs Sherlock traces on John's skin [But Sherlock isn’t flinching – he’s letting John move, fingertips tracing delicate, abstract patterns over John’s waist and hips.] were the equivalent of the maps John memorized for Sherlock - Sherlock would be tracing John's steps from kitchen to living room to bedroom in their flat. I couldn't get that idea into a drabble, which was the format of each piece of this fic, but I'm still fond the fic. My thanks (again!) to thesmallhobbit for betaing and Britpicking!
