It’s the posting period at [ profile] smallfandombang at the moment. My Dear Ladies fic Held to Account went up on Sunday, which was also the first time I had seen [ profile] amoredition’s accompanying art in all its final glory. You can see it here on Tumblr and also here on LJ, if you fancy leaving her a comment! The art features Hilda, Evadne and one of my OCs Duncan—who was quite happy working as a porter at The Queens of the Theatre Club until encountering Hilda and Evadne’s mountain of luggage. (To be fair, it’s mainly Hilda’s.) The story involves the dear ladies going on a quest to investigate a 30 year old crime, and in the background of the artwork you can see the route they take on their travels. I love the overall design of the artwork and I love all the little details. It's wonderful—I'm thrilled with it.

I’m still working on my [ profile] heroinebigbang fic. I’m up to 21,500 words now. I’m fairly happy with the first half or so—though it still needs a bit more work. The second half is pretty much there but it’s still rather bitty—it needs developing. But I’m not (too) worried. I am on schedule.

For my [ profile] intoabar fic I've been assigned Dr. Watson for Dame Hilda Bracket to meet. I must admit I was a little disappointed at first. When I decided to sign up I thought that I would just put down ACD Holmes for my fandoms, same as last year. Then I decided to be bold! I decided to nominate more fandoms! And I put down Are You Being Served? and Pirates of Penzance too! And… I got a character from ACD Holmes, same as last year. (Well, at least I didn’t get Irene Adler again.) But I have to say putting Hilda and Watson together is working out very well. I’ve already written a 3,000 word first draft.

I think I’m also going to sign up for [ profile] holmestice. There’s a week to go for sign-ups, so I’ve got some time to think about it. Must admit I find [ profile] holmestice a bit intimidating—makes me feel like a very minor player with not much to offer. But there’s always room for even minor players to play.

Do sign up for [ profile] holmestice I'd love to see what you produce.

I have got Thorin Oakenshield meets James Moriarty. I have written nothing. Although I don't think Thorin finds the Colonel very impressive.

I think I will sign up for Holmestice. I'm just trying to work out at the moment what exactly I can offer, and what I'd like to receive. The latter is, oddly, the more difficult.

I did see your assignment and immediately think "ouch". But then I thought putting those two characters together would probably make for an interesting story.

Hang on: "Colonel"? Are you going with Moriarty's brother? I sort of assumed "James Moriarty" meant Professor Moriarty himself.

I imagine that's what's expected, but it just said James, so I don't see why not. It's not my fault the Moriarty parents were unimaginative when naming their children.

I continue to be impressed by your energy and enthusiasm re fic writing, and fandom variety:-)
And you are no minor player

Thanks ^_^ But I must admit it's not so much energy and enthusiasm, as sheer determination ^^"

And I do feel a minor player compared to the best Holmestice writers, who also have knowledge of a great many different versions of Holmes. But this awareness is no bad thing if it spurs me on to try and improve - and to try new Holmes stories outside of the canon ^^

Impressed by determination, then:-)

Wow! That's no microfiction! Go you! Such impressive numbers. And I second that you are not a minor player with a lot to offer. And if someone wants an inanimate object fic, well *cue the dreamy match-made-in-heaven music*

I can't quite believe I've written something this long ^_^

And do you know, I might actually offer an inanimate object fic as part of my sign up. There must be someone out there for me ^__^
