Fic: Best Beloved

Title: Best Beloved
Author: pinchin_lane
Rating: R, very probably.  I wouldn't want my 13 year old reading this.
Word Count: 2,068
Warnings: Drug Use
Disclaimer: Just borrowing for fun.  Take a gander at the professionals (Conan Doyle, Moffatt, Gatiss, BBC, etc.) if you want some real kicks.
Summary:  Written to satisfy a fic request found on the sherlockbbc group, posted by sherlock2040.  This is my first time playing that game, so I hope it is met with approval.  I just jumped at the chance to play with Mycroft and Sherlock.

Also, the title is from Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories... particularly the one about the rhino and the Parsee, from whose hat shone the rays of the sun in more than Oriental splendor.  I couldn't resist.  I probably should have.

I've been toying with the idea of Francis Urqhuart and Mycroft Holmes crossing paths... I'm not quite there yet, but I was definitely influenced by The Final Cut when writing the current offering.  Especially this scene:

Hopefully future attempts will yield a meeting between the two men, and perhaps even Peter Guillam or George Smiley.  Crazy?  You might very well think that; I couldn't possibly comment.

Edit:  Not quite ready for sharing.  More later.


Ah, Sunday...

It's been a busy week, but a good one!  Today is the second in a three-day weekend... which is so very fine by me. 

On our way

THE VESUVIUS CLUB, a Lucifer Box adventure

I'm not certain why its taken me so long to read a book housing characters named Lucifer Box, Charlie Jackpot, and Bella Pok... but then I'm not certain about a lot of things.  Witty, well-written, and possessed of a touch of the unbelievable... it was a dashed good read, and I'll be looking for the rest of the series as soon as the snow melts.  I knew I loved Mark Gatiss for reasons other than his involvement in two of my favorite spheres of consciousness.  Until then, I'm delving in equal measures into CRANFORD and Selden Edwards' THE LITTLE BOOK, when I'm not nosing around LiveJournal and crocheting.

Saturday Ramblings

Today has been a very domestic, very satisfying sort of day.

I barely moved away from the kitchen... though I did make a visit to the library to pay my fines and pick up some books.  It was cold enough to bundle up but not cold enough to worry about it.

Coat and Scarf

Also managed to get a few minutes in on the old grey scarf... which is very close to being finished now.  Looking forward to starting the new black scarf... I could never make it through an afghan.  I get bored before my scarves are finished.
