~ Brilliant ~

Mike Stamford has spoken of Sherlock Holmes, -- “He’s a posh git at times, but Lestrade’s fairly smitten with those deductions of his...” -- yet when she actually meets the Consulting Detective she finds that Mike has omitted vital information.

“How do you do?”

A warm hand, a voice like black velvet. She shivers within, deliciously, and stares up, quite stunned by his presence… his beauty...

Mike, oblivious, says, “Just let Dr. Hooper know what you need, Sherlock. She’ll be happy to assist.”

She stammers a reply, and Sherlock smiles slightly, eyes crinkling. Molly’s undone.

Oh! This is going to be brilliant!

* * * * *

Both Mycroft and Lestrade have greased the wheels, but Mike Stamford’s set the seal on Sherlock’s access to all that is Bart’s mortuary.

“Sherlock, this is Dr. Molly Hooper, our newest and brightest. Molly, meet Sherlock Holmes.”

Her small hand is cold, though steady enough; the widened brown eyes, however, hold a look he recognizes very well. In uni days, debauchery would have been in the cards. A decade on, however...

“Y-yes! Whatever you need,” she stammers to Stamford’s “... happy to assist …” and Sherlock smiles at the possibilities. The lab. The body parts...

Ah! This is going to be brilliant!

well I'll be go to hell! You love Sherlock too! with the same truth eyes you use to present our pirate. Love hearing the repeat of his favorite word--and how quickly his mind jumps forward, back, forward again. And debauch what a wonderfully wicked word.

You love Sherlock too!"

I am absolutely bouncing as the implication, of course, is that YOU TOO have been "Sherlocked"! The icon kept coming up on my Netflix feed, but I resisted giving it a try until late last year. I've never seen a TV show I loved more!

It took me quite a few months to start "hearing" the characters speak, and there are various aspects of the show -- details of cases and solving them, the science, the medical knowledge, the modern culture of England -- that make it more difficult to write than PotC ever was, but I am now having HUGE fun trying! You know how I love romance, so I've been writing Sherlock/Molly and have quite a lengthy series of stories going. I'm behind in posting it here -- just decided to start doing that a few days ago as I missed the LJ format and friends so much -- but will be playing catch up over the next couple of weeks. It's all up at AO3 and FF.net already, though, where I am also geekmama.

I am so happy to know you enjoyed this one, and that you felt Sherlock's voice was in character. It is beyond fun to wake up to find a comment from my old piratey friend. Thank you!
