Happy Christmas to Warriorbot, who deserves a special 221B for getting Mary Sue Sutherland writing metafic.

BBC!Sherlock

Rating 15 (frankly alarming fiction)


It was December 15th and it was quiet.

"Too quiet," Lestrade said.

"On the streets?" Donovan asked.

"On the RPF meme. You've been monitoring it. What are they up to now?"

"Sure you wanna know?"

"Mistletoe and mince-pies? Sherlock uttering the phrase 'Happy Holidays'?"

"Rare pairing fest," Donovan replied. "Would you believe there are people out there wanting Moriarty/Anderson slash?"

"That'll pay Anderson back for posting photos of Mycroft on Tumblr," Lestrade said. "Just tell me no-one's imagining me with Sherlock again. It upsets My and John and I don't want any more writers damaged."

There was a particular intensity to Donovan's silence by now.

"Worse than that?" Lestrade demanded.

"Someone's requested Dark Lestrade/Dimmock, sir."

"Yes, but no-one's insane enough to write... Oh God, they haven't let Sutherland near the internet again, have they?"

"It's not just her, sir. They're all out again: Mary Sue, Foxycop and Warriorbot. The word on the tweet is they're collaborating now. And we've just intercepted this message." Donovan handed him the print-out gingerly, obviously unwilling to read it out.

Dear MSS, OK so we're agreed: Holmescest with voyeur Lestrade it is. I do the porn, you do the angst and Foxycop does the adjectives. Love 'Bot.

Well that solved the problem of Mycroft's Christmas present, thought Lestrade. Just get him a gallon of brain bleach.



Notes: Lurking on the Sherlock Rare Pair fest there are indeed alarming things. Foxycop first appears in Going Down With This Ship by Warriorbot, and her legendary fic I'm not Your Sniffer Dog is here.

This is truly frightening. And thrilling. But mostly frightening.. . I will have to down more Christmas punch before reading the alarming things--DarkLestrade/Dimmock sends a shudder up my spine! *goes off to find the punch*

Poor old foxycop. I think he/she/they have been encased in concrete and used as the foundation stone for a certain government department's new offices!

Squee to the max, and also *hides from My and New Scotland Yard*

Merry Christmas!

(And never stop metaficcing!)

I don't have any more metafic planned at the moment, but S2 may inspire me. And I think whatever Mycroft and Sherlock do to foxycop, they can't keep her down. The power of bad fic can blast holes through solid concrete, surely?

Happy to give it a plug - there were some prompts there I did find worrying and others that I had to forcibly prevent myself from writing.

I find myself alarmingly tempted to start writing more of foxycop's stories, but I don't want to discover that I can write really bad fiction. It was alarming enough realising that Sherlock and I share the same stylistic faults (neither having much interest in the transport).
