He got his love of planes and Muggle mechanisms from Arthur Weasley, and he and Ron were the closest with each other. But they all had to accept that it wasn’t just that he was clumsy at magic, he was a squib. So he left the family to go live with the Muggles he had grown to feel a kinship with.
This must already exist somewhere, right? I need this in my life.
I wasn’t really around this past week, and I just noticed that everything is gone - tumblr, lj, dreamwidth. Is she okay? A quick google looks like there was some rl/internet shennanigans, but I can’t find her e-mail and would love to know if all is well with her if someone knows!
I’m about two chapters out from finishing this, but I figured I’d put it up anyway. Motivation, maybe? Also, I’m rusty as hell, not gonna lie.
1440 Minutes (BBC Sherlock) by sparcck Pairing: Sherlock Holmes/John Watson Rating: Explicit Warnings: Adult content; violence; repeated major character death(s); suddenly, handjobs Chapters: WIP, 7/9 completed
Summary: The Reichenbach Fall via Groundhog Day: Sherlock wasn’t supposed to die the day he jumped from the roof of St. Bart’s. John has 1440 minutes to figure out what went wrong and how to fix it, or he’ll have to wake up and do it all again.
Along the way, he figures some other stuff out, too. Eventually.
NEVER has the phrase “No shit, Sherlock” been more appropriate. NEVER.
This is not aimed at anyone here, but I must say this.
The story Reichenbach was based on was called The Final Problem. NOT The Final Solution. I know there aren’t any hidden Nazi agendas in accidentally calling it that, it’s an easy mistake to make and I make verbal typos all the time.
But this is in print. At least two people had to read this before it was posted. I mean, I would imagine? We have about 7 different readers on our stuff, although that’s actual print. But I assume there was at least a proofreading pass done, if not a proofreading pass and a copyediting pass.
I feel like people accidentally call things The Final Solution all the time, not realizing, even not about this? Maybe it’s just me.
TL;DR: Proofreading! An extra ten minutes would save us all a cringe-inducing reading experience!
