Title: Like This
Author: [ profile] marta_bee
'Verse: BBC
Pairing: Irene Adler/Molly Hooper; background Molly Hooper/Jim Moriarty
Prompt: unseasonably warm
Summary: She’d answered the door, barefoot and flannel pyjama bottoms and a cotton tee I recognized as Jim’s, and then had unceremoniously deposited herself back on his couch. The butterfly tattoo on her ankle peaked out at me, a half-hidden secret not quite tucked under her thigh. Jim had looked up from his laptop then, introduced her as a friend of his from his Chicago days who was getting herself settled in London. That was a lie, of course, but by the time I found out Jim had told so many lies (Galway-born, unassuming system administrator, not-gay, though he had oddly enough been telling the truth when he professed his love for Deep Space Nine), the ones about Irene hardly seemed to matter.

Author: [ profile] sjames_centre (Susan on the AO3)
'Verse: BBC
Pairing: Sherlock Holmes/John Watson
Prompt: cherry
Summary: Sherlock lays out the facts, finds connections, makes deductions. He’s a brilliant schoolboy in a classroom of idiots. But there are things Sherlock cannot deduce, conclusions he will never draw, murders he will never solve. These are the cases that never make it into the blog, cases like this one. I don’t write them up because they’re bad for business. At least that’s what I tell him.
