brighteyedjill: Bones is pensive (Sherlock: S&J Blah blah blah)
Title: The Golden Key (Ice Melt Remix)
Pairing: John/Sherlock
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: discussion of murder, violence, and brief recollections of war (on par w/ the show)
Word count: ~7,000
Beta/Britpick Team: [livejournal.com profile] not_a_cypher, [livejournal.com profile] jaune_chat and An Anonymous Benefactor
Author’s Note: Written for the [livejournal.com profile] sherlock_remix challenge 2011, and based on [livejournal.com profile] sprl1199’s story Frozen.
Summary: The current case involves a dead maid, a rumour of ghosts, and a quickly worsening head cold, but none of that troubled John so much as the troublesome patterns he began to notice in the way Sherlock dealt with death.


John had seen a death wish before: in the manic grin of an arsonist they’d chased last year, in the grief-stricken face of a Pashtun man whose wife and infant son had been killed in a street bombing, in the eyes of his father pouring out the last of a bottle. )
brighteyedjill: Bones is pensive (ST: Spock Christmas)
It's holiday time! Although my family celebrates Christmas, I especially love New Year's as a holiday. It seems more honest, somehow, the way the Russians do it: Christmas is a Christian holiday where people go to church all night and light candles and celebrate the birth of Christ. Novy God (rhymes with "drove he road") is a pagan-y celebration where people decorate fir trees and welcome winter (and Grandfather Frost, who gets pissed when people complain about the cold, bitches) and give presents and stuff. So there's your international culture public service announcements.

But! No matter what holiday you celebrate, it's the gift-givin time 'o year! So, you likely know the drill. I'm posting a list of stuff I'd love to receive for Новый Год, and you post what you'd like to receive for your winter holiday of choice. If you see something on someone's list that you feel capable of providing and are moved to do so, huzzah! If not, there are no rules, no pressure, and no fuss/muss. So link me to your lists, and let the holiday cheer spread! (hic!)

Note: if you would like to send me something in the real-world mail, but don't have my address, PM me, and I will provide. Or, if you're being stealthy, you could ask [livejournal.com profile] jaune_chat. I bet she would tell you if you ask nicely.

Things what I would love:
* Writing notebooks. I write on the train during my commute, so I love to have something that fits in my purse to whip out when I have ideas.
* Sherlock icons, or recommendations for where to find them
* Fic recommendations for dark, angsty fic. I'm currently reading Heroes, Star Trek, Supernatural, and Sherlock, with trace amounts of Inception, Lost, and True Blood.
* Music or recommendations for music (or an iTunes gift card). I love hearing new things. To give you an example of my taste, I love everything from Broadway musicals and movie scores to acoustic folk to glam-pop. Today I'm listening to Josh Ritter, The Extra Lens, Unicorn Dream Attack, and Trent Rezonr's score from The Social Network.
* Cute knitted wrist warmers/gauntlets/whatever the kids are calling them these days
* Podfic! I love hearing a reader's interpretation of my stories. You hereby have my permission to podfic any story of mine that you want.
* Art! Want to draw me something? A picture of a character, or a scene in a fic? Or send me a pretty photograph you took of the woods? Bring it on.
* A banner or icons for Proving Ground. Or really, any Trek mirror!verse icons
* Fic! I love reading fic (er... obviously)! I left a bunch 'o prompts over at [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking, (in several fandoms, even, so you should check those out and see if any catch your fancy.
* To love you, baby. So throw a link to your own wishlist my way, or link me to your [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking!

Also, let it be said that I'm not expecting anything in time for Christmas, or even New Year's. My birthday is in January, so I consider the entire first month of the year a gifting amnesty period, for me and you both. Let the mayhem begin! Er... continue!
