Greetings and Welcome to My Journal!
    This site is where I post my Sherlock Holmes fan fiction. I have been writing for eight years now and have been a long time fan of the genre.

About my stories and my writing style:
    I tend to write stories based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's works, but will draw upon other Holmesian sources such as movies, television, and other pastiches. (I have written for some other fandoms since I find it hard to resist a dare!)

    My favourite stories to both read and write are gaslight (i.e. Victorian), and not rated above PG-13. Most are serious, but some are light-hearted. I find something of interest in all iterations of Sherlock Holmes, including the two recent modernisations. Slash may not be my cuppa tea but I will never knock other people for their preferences.

    I enjoy collaborative projects much more than competitions.

    Most authors desire feedback and I am no exception. Evil, flaming comments will be taken with a grain of salt. Constructive criticism is most welcome because it will help me improve my writing, and praise just makes me purr.

Friending Policy
    I do not share personal information here. I'm sure that while you are all lovely brilliant persons, you are still just figments of my imagination.

    That being said, please feel free to friend me. If you want me to friend you back, please send me a message or post me a comment. Thanks!
