  4. Come To Me

    thechrysalis:

    Sherlock Holmes sat by himself as he watched the guests at the Watson-Morstan wedding reception mingle with each other. He smirked when his gaze fell on John holding his bride close at the centre of the dance floor. The smirk disappeared once he took his eyes off them. While he found the former Miss Morstan worthy of his friend’s affections, he was also mildly worried about his marriage’s effect on their friendship and their business partnership. He had also observed and deduced everyone else in the ballroom and was beginning to get antsy with boredom.

    Read the full story on FF or on AO3.

    Summary: Sherlock is bored to death at John and Mary’s wedding reception. That is, until he sets his sights on Molly Hooper.

    Characters: Sherlock Holmes, Molly Hooper, John Watson, Mary Morstan (no lines), Greg Lestrade (no lines)

    Rating: Mature, for sexual content and swearing & taboo/vulgar slang

    Genre: Romance

  7. A writer is someone who pays attention to the world — a writer is a professional observer.

  9. For the writer, the serial killer is, abstractly, an analogue of the imagination’s caprices and amorality; the sense that, no matter the dictates and even the wishes of the conscious social self, the life or will or purpose of the imagination is incomprehensible, unpredictable.
    — Joyce Carol Oates (via writingquotes)
