Title: The Adventure of the Devil’s Snare
Recipient: [personal profile] sanspatronymic
Author: [redacted]
Rating: Teen/PG-13
Characters: Sherlock Holmes, John Watson, John Openshaw; mentions of Mary Watson and Mrs Hudson
Relationships: John Watson/Mary Watson (at the time of the case); Sherlock Holmes/John Watson (unspecified later time)
Warnings: References to atrocities committed in the American Civil War and Reconstruction eras; canon-typical violence; canon references; Victorian-era racial terminology and attitudes; a more-or-less verbatim quote from The Five Orange Pips reworked into the story as a ‘resource’
Summary: “Of all the mixture of half-truths, gross oversimplifications, and farrago of lies I have sent him over the years, the Adventure of the Five Orange Pips stands out as one of the most extraordinary taradiddles that ever masqueraded as a truthful account.”
Word Count: 7,625
Author’s Notes: As you might guess from the above, The Adventure of the Five Orange Pips never made sense to me as written. I’ve taken your prompt of “a fondness for 'deleted scene' type works (ie, something that would fit nicely into a hole left in a canon story)” as inspiration and…well, pretty thoroughly rewritten the entire thing. I hope it pleases you!
Special thanks to: [redacted] for the beta

OMG, I'm reading Star Wars fan fiction again! Here's an AU where Owen and Beru Lars adopted Luke, and he later enlists in the Empire's academy....

Black Squadron by Azalea_Scroggs
When Luke Lars, a gifted young pilot recently graduated from the Imperial Academy, is assigned to Darth Vader's personal TIE fighter squadron, it is a dream come true: ever since he was a child, the young man's one aspiration has been to fly. But life on a Star Destroyer is not all the bliss he thought it would be. Between falling in with his squad mates and figuring where his loyalties lie, Luke has his work cut out for him. Especially with the Dark Lord of the Sith holding him under such close scrutiny...

I think I've gotten hooked on this AU. It's one where Ben Kenobi gave Luke to the Organas, and Leia to his half-brother Owen Lars.

http://archiveofourown.org/series/609151

It's been so long since I've read any Star Wars fan fiction. I grew up with classic Star Wars, the books and comics, none of this new stuff coming out. Back then, it was accepted 'canon' that Owen Lars was Obi-wan's half brother.

And I can't remember how that was. If their mother remarried, or if she had two husbands, though I'm not sure poly-marriage would have been used in space fantasy back in the 80s. Does anyone else a bit older than me remember? (Though I totally buy the idea of her having two husbands!)

Anyway......

Title: The Adventure of the Maidservant's Revenge
Recipient: [personal profile] scfrankles
Author: [redacted]
Rating: The G-est of G
Characters:, Mr Sherlock Holmes, Dr John Watson, Agatha
Warnings: Absolutely none
Author's Summary: In his career, Holmes only admitted to being "beaten four times, three times by men and once by a woman." It is generally assumed that he was speaking about Irene Adler as the woman, but perhaps he was suppressing the fact that he was actually beaten by another woman…

Some months after the conclusion of the Milverton affair... )

Where has all the candy gone?

I'm thinking about Mews today. How could it have been a year already? I'll always love her.

I'm taking Pippin to meet her new vet tomorrow, and to get her weighed. Hopefully all the squirrel- and mouse-chasing is keeping her in good shape.

Shiremom had her eye surgeon appointment, and she definitely needs cataracts surgery. We haven't scheduled the surgery date yet, but plan to do so very soon. Her quality of life will be so much improved once she can see clearly again!

I need to stop buying Halloween candy so far in advance. I forgot how fond Shiremom is of mini Tootsie Rolls and Kit Kats.

Note to Self: Put "mini Tootsie Rolls and Kit Kats" back on the shopping list.

Every so often a participant is unable to complete their assignment and we have to scramble to find someone able and willing to make a gift for the recipient. If you would enjoy being one of the people we turn to in our times of need, please leave us a comment! Include your email, and tell us what fanwork types, verses, pairings, and ratings you might be willing to create for. All comments are screened.

Volunteering on this post is not a commitment: you'll simply be among the people we turn to first when we need a pinch-hitter. If we find ourselves in need, we'll email you a request and due date; you're free to accept or reject. (We do ask that you do so promptly, as deadlines are often tight!)

Thank you so much for volunteering!

"Watson," said he, "if it should ever strike you that I am getting a little over-confident in my powers, or giving less pains to a case than it deserves, kindly whisper 'Norbury' in my ear, and I shall be infinitely obliged to you."

The Adventure of the Yellow Face
Because even Sherlock Holmes sometimes needs someone to look over his work...

If you're available to beta or Britpick for someone, please leave a comment with the following information:

Email: (or other preferred contact method)
Types of fanworks you can beta: (fic, art, graphics, vids, etc.)
Fandoms: (Doyle, BBC, Elementary, 22nd Century, etc.)
Pairings: (it's helpful to name what you are willing AND not willing to work with)
Ratings: (if you will or won't beta explicit sex, graphic violence, etc.)

If you have any other limitations or areas of expertise, please feel free to include them! Suggestions include fic length, time restraints, availability, areas of special knowledge, or particular strengths or weaknesses.

If you need a beta, please check the comments to see if someone is right for you. (Show a care with your anonymity, please, and refrain from leaving public comments that suggest what you're making for the exchange.) If you can't find who you need in the comments, please email the mods at holmesticemods@gmail.com, and we'll help you find someone.


Also! Please let me recommend [livejournal.com profile] sherlock60's Round 5 Discussion Posts. [personal profile] scfrankles spent over a year compiling historical linkspams on topics inspired by the original canon stories, and then generously shared what she learned with all of us. I highly recommend the collection for anyone needing inspiration or background for Victorian- or Edwardian-era fanworks!
