And this is what happens when I fall asleep after an episode of Sherlock... Why is it that my dreams give me ideas to write? Ahwell... I hope you guys like it so please let me know what you think Don't own Sherlock, do own this story and all OCs in it.
In the course of studying story and its component parts- character, thematic armature, bright colors- I found myself quite unexpectedly developing parables.
Parables exist solely to convey a theme or moral truth- plot, setting, everything else is minimized so it doesn't distract from the point of the story. Characters exist only to the degree they're needed to dramatize the theme.
Some schools of thought hold that this is the ultimate embodiment of story, it's highest and purest form. If you grant that stories exist only to convey thematic truth, then they'd be right.
I tend to think otherwise, but exploring this model still proved enlightening. And productive- I wound up discovering a few parables of my own.
And that's really how it felt with these- not like writing, but like finding. Once discovered, it seemed only appropriate to transcribe them- and why not, share them.
I'm a shameless, shameless Sherlock fangirl. But I also love Firefly. And what's better than combining two shows that you love the most?
The idea for this fic appeared while I was listening to "Mal's Song": [link] John Watson and Malcolm Reynolds are in fact very different characters, but they have at least one thing in common: they suffer, they fall down, but they always stand up and fight back. Oh, all my feels ;__;
Hope you'll enjoy. And if somebody ever makes a Sherlockian video to this song, I'll explode from happiness and my remains will bawl forever.
Okay, so I planned this story to be part of "3 ficlets inspired by songs": [link] but it was so long that I decided to publish it separately. It was inspired by the beautiful song Bohemienne: [link] and I simply had to write this.
And what about the story itself? It's Sherlock BBC AU, so expect 19th century Paris, top hats, gas lanterns and our dear John Watson meeting a very intriguing character among gypsies...
This story will have at least one sequel. The inspiration for the second part was the song "Hellfire" from Hunchback of Notre Dame, so the story will be more... racy
And Bohemien is apparently "boy version" of the word Bohemienne (a gipsy girl). At least that's what French dictionary told me, it's his fault, not mine.
Wonderful BossHossBones draw a picture of gypsy!Sherlock for me, please check it out! - [link]
I was having feels, okay? Lots of feels. Reichenfeels, Rosefeels ("Doomsday", oh God, why!), emofeels and acefeels. And during acefeels I was listening to the song "Learn to be Lonely" from The Phantom of the Opera and that's how this little pre-Reichenbach story was born. It's not really "ace", but whatever. I just had to get rid of the sadness from my system.
I hope you'll enjoy it. As always, comments are appreciated.
Okay, so it was a bit of an experiment (all for science!). I turned on my winamp and told him to choose music from my computer at random. And when he did, I just closed my eyes and imagined some Sherlockian scenes. The stories above are the results of this inspirational session. Actually, originally I wanted to publish five ficlets, but the one inspired by "Bohemienne" turned out to be really long and the other, post-Reichenbach story, was very emotional for me, so I decided to publish them separately. Hopefully, they both will be available this week.
If you'll like the stories I might do something similar again or somehow expand on existing ones
Anyway, I hope you'll enjoy. Oh, and I think that Sherlock in Skyrim would totally be Dunmer And John would be Breton, probably.
Unfortunately I don't own the songs nor Sherlock - they belong to their respectable owners. Period.
Well, it's that time of year once again ladies and gentlemen...in in attempts to lighten the mood with all the sad things happening, I thought I would try to lighten all Transformers fans spirits with a pardoy of a famous Christmas song; "12 Days of Christmas". I hope everyone reading this finds a few chuckles out of this. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Merry Quanza and everything inbetween. I wish to everyone a safe and happy holiday season~!
When I don't see you, I do not sigh nor cry My faculties and senses do not go awry; Yet when you are not here for a moment or two, Someone seems missing, and that someone is you. And the heart below asks the mind above Is this friendship, or is this love?
Adam Mickiewicz, Uncertainty (Niepewność).
This poem inspired me greatly. I've always liked it and it seems to fit John and Sherlock's relationship perfectly. You can read the full thing and listen to a song here (English lyrics): [link] The translation is really nice, but unfortunately I don't know who the author was.
Anyway, Uncertainty is a semi-sequel to Like a Virgin. That means you do not really need to read it to get the plot, but it is advised. You can check it out here and make me happy: Like a Virgin: [link]
It took me forever to get rid of mistakes and I hope I succeeded. Any comments will be appreciated. Enjoy!
Like a Virgin series, all semi-sequels (you don't have to read them all, but if you do, I'll be happy! ):
