Title: Things to go bump in the night
Theme: Watson's Woes Challenge 26 - Ghost Story
Author: Alaylith
Rating: PG
Universe: ACD
Characters: Watson, Holmes
WordCount: 2.262
Summary: Watson is alone in their flat, enjoying a silent night, until weird things happen and danger lurks in the darkness.

A/N: The new monthly prompt's from Watson's Woes are already working! I have been unable to write for weeks now, but with this prompt (even though I do not really like any kind of Ghost story) I was able to catch a little plot bunny which grew quite a lot after feeding it. :D
Hope you like and I wonder how I am going to sleep tonight...

Title: The Empty Finality
Entry: Watson's Woes Challenge 23
Prompt:


I've always thought it was a particularly foolish move for Holmes to fight off Moriarty's goons on his way to Watson's Kensington house in FINA, close the blinds because he suspects they are being watched by a man with an air-gun, and then exit the house by the back garden wall, for all intents and purposes leaving the people watching the house to think he's still inside. Rather dangerous for Watson, in my opinion, for Moriarty's network to think he's harboring their boss's Most Wanted, when in reality Holmes is halfway across London in a bolthole or some such. I've always wanted to read an AU that dealt with this issue in some fashion, but have never come across one.

Universe: ACD bookverse
Characters: Holmes, Watson, Moran, Moriarty
WordCount: 6.805
Summary: There was something Moriarty wanted, something Moran detested and something Holmes feared. At the center of it all was Watson, who was the one worried.

A/N: Well, this was a torture to write. At first I was worried that I would not be able to get the 1k words and then I was unable to stop with this monstrous plot bunny. Sadly I got a bit (lot) carried away from the original prompt when the plot bunny took my muse to run a few circles around the garden... I am sorry for that. :(
I still hope that you like the story at least, even if it's not so much about the prompt anymore...

Nevertheless I have been quite surprised how much fun it was to write Moran & Moriarty, as I had never written them before, o_O
(you'll notice that because Moran's part is the longest...)

Now have fun with the story and if you'll excuse me; I've got to buy a leash with spikes. Oh and a recipe for rabbit stew... ._.

I do believe I can see some kind of plot bunny in the distance, but I am not sure yet.
But I will at least try... *gets her special bait*

Here bunny bunny bunny - come here. *hides her cage*
I've got cookies for you!

Title: Bite of a Viper
Author[livejournal.com profile] alaylith
Rating: PG
Universe: bookverse/Granada (I only took the detail from Granada that Watson is not married and still lives in Baker Street)
Word Count: 20x 100 words (= 2.000)
Warnings: sickness, hallucinations
Summary: The package containing an ivory box with the viper's tooth was not sent to Holmes, but to Watson.

A/N: Here is my entry to Watson's Woes Challenge 22. Thankfully I had a short school day today, so I had time to write it.

And I even managed my first drabble (100 words ficlets) series! :D
Saying that, the drabbles may appear "weird" to you, as I have never written such before and I did not know how to smoothly finish them etc. I felt pretty clumsy the first few, but it got better in the end. ^^

Hope ya still like it!


snacky drabbles are this way )

My entries for the Watson's Woes Challenge20 (one sentence for different verses)

Just going to copy my post from there (yeah, I am lazy :P)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here are my entries for the Challenge20; several sentences to each category. :)
Sadly had no time to think of more…

Hope you like them! And sorry for any grammatical errors; it’s worse to get one sentence right than a whole story. XD

Be warned, there are some spoilery aspects for BBC Sherlock Season 2 and Sherlock Holmes 2!


the sentences are here :) )
