Watching the detective (221B)

BBC Sherlock

Rating: PG

In a discussion on blooms84's LJ a while ago I mentioned that there was almost no slash for DI Dimmock. That was enough to trigger my plot bunnies...


Sid Paget was brilliant at faces: from one blurry photo he could recognise a terrorist in the midst of a crowded airport lounge. But he was hopeless at remembering names. It didn't help that most people in the Service had more than one. He'd finally worked out that Posh Brunette was called Anthea, for example, and she'd promptly changed it again.

Posh Brunette was Mr Holmes' PA, and though Sid longed for his assignments, he found her intimidating. He was reading her e-mail about the Chinese antiques he'd filmed when she swept in and announced he had to go to Scotland Yard immediately.

"They'll fill you in on the details there."

He looked at the contact's name on the e-mail.

"That's Cute Sergeant, isn't it?" he asked, just to check.

"He's been promoted to Cute Inspector now," she replied smugly.

Sid liked the man. Fancied him a bit, ever since he'd spotted him attending a BFI screening of Vertigo. So when he saw the poster on the wall of the inspector's new office, he couldn't help blurting out: "You like Ray Harryhausen?"

"He did such amazing monsters, didn't he? Much better than the CGI crap. It's Mr Paget, isn't it, from MI5?"

"Yeah. Congratulations on your promotion, DI Dimmock."

The inspector smiled a cute smile. "Please," he said, "call me Brad."

nice to see Sid Paget again. I wonder whether there's any overlap between Dimmock's interests and Anderson's.

Sid also gets a trip to Switzerland in my Mystrade festival story, but I'm not sure when that will appear. As for Dimmock and Anderson, I'm not sure my brain could cope. Though I have a partly written fic somewhere lurking that tries to see if you can have a sympathetic Anderson with dinosaur fetish story. Not sure if I'll ever finish it.

Is there going to be a sequel where Dimmock sings "Dammit, Paget, I love you"?

That one had not occurred to me, but the thought may now be permanently lodged in some stray corner of my brain! But it's hard to write Dimmock fic because while he's pretty, he doesn't have much character.

Ah, I adore Dimmock love!!!! I have him with Molly. I think they'd be good for one another.

*snicker* You made me think there has to be a little Dimmock/Sid video that makes its way accidentally onto YouTube. And Lestrade has to plead with Mycroft to get the tapes destroyed--for the sake of the Met's reputation. Oh Brad, you are cute, but you're may be in way over your head with Sid. Just be careful!

The plot bunnies are attacking! The plot bunnies are attacking! Along with the realisation that I've never yet described what Sid Paget looks like...
