*waves sheepishly at everyone*

I’m sorry I’ve not been around. It’s been a really busy six months, with so many things happening I don’t know where to start.

First things first, which you’ve probably guessed from the post title …

My wedding is tomorrow! At 11 am I shall walk down the aisle as Ms James and walk back up it an hour later as Mrs Masters!

For a small wedding it’s taken a heck of a lot of organising but then we did decide to get married in France, so paperwork has featured quite heavily. To cut a long story short, we’re getting married in the village where Mum and Jacques live. Ben and I have been here since the end of June and Ben’s Mum and Dad arrived last week. We are literally only having our close family and no-one else and Mum is walking me down the aisle and giving me away (I told her she wasn’t allowed to cheer as she did so).

My dress is, well, rather beautiful actually. It’s an antique lace bodice and silk skirt in an ivory cream, with lace sleeves that taper into my wrists (in case anyone doesn’t know, you don’t bare your shoulders in Catholic churches) and a side bustle. It’s very Edwardian and makes me look all polished and grown up – good job Ben knows what he’s really getting because otherwise this might deceive him into thinking I’m sensible! I’m really not convinced on the veil but Mum seems to think it makes me look lovely so I’m going to believe her. It does, at least, detach from the tiara easily enough so I don’t have to wear it once the nuptials are complete.

And then Mum and Jacques are hosting the “Wedding Breakfast” at Jacques’ Grand-mère’s house, which has the most beautiful garden imaginable and should, given that the weather seems to be holding, be excellent for the drinking of champagne and the nibbling of nibbles.

After that, Ben and I take the train south, to the Côte d'Azur for our honeymoon – don’t we sound posh ;)

So yes, I’m a little bit excited right now!

Second piece of noteworthy news – I am now officially have my Masters in Philosophy and I’ve been accepted to do my PhD!

I’m very, very happy about this. Not as happy as I am to be getting married but still, I’m really rather chuffed. It’s going to mean a huge amount of work but I think I’ve finally found the thing that fires me and I can’t imagine doing anything else.

Thirdly. I know I said there would be more Unintended Consequences about now but … well, life. I will finish it, eventually, I promise.

Anyway, I hope all you lovely people are well and happy and I’m sorry I haven’t been commenting or reading fic or anything. I’ll try and catch up at some point but in the meantime, know I love you all even if I don’t tell you so.

Now, I’m off to have a nice long bath and then bed. I have no idea if I’m going to be able to sleep but I really must try!

Coming Undone ... )
bradspyjamas: (Ecstatic Arthur)
Thank you so much for all the lovely birthday messages, I've the most awesome day and I'm just about to be taken out to dinner but, before I go, I wanted to tell you all something:

[livejournal.com profile] kizzia is one of the nicest, kindest, most wonderful people I've ever had the pleasure to call friend. She's been a fantastic support to me over the last couple of years and today she really went above and beyond the call of duty.

Not only did she write me the most gorgeous little 221B birthday ficlet (What people do, go read it now!) but she also took the time to contact some of the people she knew and worked with when she was doing her Philosophy degree who had specialist knowledge about the areas I'm working on in my dissertation and put them all in touch with me, today, so that I can iron out the final issues with it. I have no words for how much that means to me.

THANK YOU SO MUCH, KIZ! I AM TRULY GRATEFUL!

Seriously, I'm completely overwhelmed.

Summary: Sherlock has always been grateful that his biology made him into the freak others frequently accuse him of being, has always been grateful for the childhood diagnosis that he is incapable of emoting and therefore incapable of forming a bond. He's never questioned the veracity of the diagnosis because he's never wanted to, too proud of the difference, too pleased at not being subject to the irrationality of sentiment, lust and desire that distracts the rest of the population. Besides, he's never had any cause to doubt that the doctors were correct. Until now, that is ....

This story is the first of my prequels to Little things but can be read as a stand alone (although it does allude to a few things that readers of "Little things" may pick up on).

Start with Chapter 1 on LJ, on AO3 or on FF.net

Read Chapter 2 on LJ, AO3 or on FF.net

Read Chapter 3 below, on AO3 or on FF.net.

Chapter 3 )

But I have been so absent from LJ and everywhere on t'internet that I wouldn't be surprised if everyone thought I was. Which makes me sad:



I really am so very sorry I've been so absent but my Masters has completely consumed me and I don't think it's likely to release me from it's clutches until I'm done in June.

Which means - other than posting the last chapter of Scenting possibilities at the weekend (because I really do deserve a break) - I shall not be writing any more Sherlock fic until it is done. Thus Unintended Consequences is taking the longest hiatus known to man because although [livejournal.com profile] kizzia is the most wonderful human being on the planet she can't write it alone - she has her own stuff to be doing for one and I haven't finished plotting it all for another - and I don't have the time. So sorry everyone - I promise it will be written eventually but there won't be anything till end of June at the earliest.

On the bright side, if all this manic working pays off I shall be starting my PhD in September which might be easier to pace with having a life!?!?

Oh and guys, I may not be commenting and sharing at the moment but please don't forget that, from the bottom of my heart ...

And yes, I do mean that exactly the way it sounds.

BEN PROPOSED YESTERDAY!!!!

I have a fiancé. I am affianced. I'm getting married!

It was really rather romantic. He put a ring box on top of the tree and then, when I finally - at 8 o'clock last night - asked who it was for, told me to check the tag.

It said "I'm a lonely ring box, because I don't have a ring inside. If you'd like to change that all you have to do is say yes to the next question you're asked ..."

I didn't give him the chance to ask me and I may have squeaked "yes" rather than said it but who cares!

I'm a bit excited, in case you couldn't tell :) So are Mum and Jacques. And Ben. Ben's pretty excited too!

I'm going to go now before I really embarrass myself by typing utter nonsense but ... I'm so happy! Happy, happy, happy!

Merry Christmas everyone!

Title: Little Christmas Things
Authors[livejournal.com profile] bradspyjamas & [livejournal.com profile] kizzia 
Rating: PG13
Status: WIP - An Advent Calender of 221B ficlets
Disclaimer: Sherlock belongs to ACD, the BBC, Moffat and Gatiss - no copyright infringement intended.
Summary: In which there is Christmass fluff and baby stuff, Uncle Mycroft, Mummy Holmes and everything else you could possibly need for a Watson-Holmes family Christmas.
This story follow on, almost directly, from "Little Things" (so it won't make much sense if you haven't read it) and there will be a 221B ficlet posted each date from now until 25th December.

Notes from the Authors:

I, [livejournal.com profile] bradspyjamas, need to make it very clear that without Kizzia this would not be happening. It says co-written at the top because Kizzia is stupidly noble and insisted but, in reality, she’s written all of them herself. That includes this one, despite the fact that I’m posting it. She has done this because I really, really wanted this story to happen but I’ve been so overwhelmed with MA work that my ability to write seems to have gone into hiding. So I mailed her my one measly page of ideas and she has turned it into the story I would have written had I not been being so useless. I have attempted to beta them but my grip of grammar and commas and stuff is … well, think Arthur in Cabin Pressure and you won’t go far wrong!
I, [livejournal.com profile] kizzia, need to make it clear that I am neither stupid or noble. It says co-written because, despite the fact that I may have produced more of the actual text than Sherlocksdressinggown(bradspyjamas), this could never have existed if she hadn't written Little Things and done such wonderful world building in her own version of Omegaverse. This is as much hers as it is mine and, in the most important aspects, even more so. I'm honoured she trusted me enough with her world to let me play.
We both hope you enjoy this and have a thoroughly lovely advent and Christmas!
Chapter 1 - "Deck the Halls"
221B ficlet under the cut ... )

Next chapter
  
I'm drowning in coursework for my MA and thus I haven't been around much, nor will I be for the next month or so. I'm hoping to be back in December with Little Christmas Things - which is now being co-authored (who am I kidding, she's practically writing all of it) by [livejournal.com profile] kizzia because I've nearly run out of sanity and have apparently lost the ability to write 221Bs - but for the moment, I might drop the odd comment but I'm otherwise going to be off the grid! Although I suspect quite a few of you are also going to be lost in NaNoWriMo land so you probably won't even miss me :)

However, I feel it necessary to leave you with something lovely to look at:


and all I want to do is curl up on the sofa and write Johnlock and drink hot chocolate and generally mooch. But I can't because I have essays that need finishing and texts that need reviewing and I think I'm losing my mind.
Meh. I will use this gif of Mr Cumberbatch to cheer me up

In other news, [livejournal.com profile] kizzia is coming down to London the last weekend in October and I was wondering if there are any other Sherlockians who would like to meet up on the Sunday for a drink and a chat? It would be nice to put faces to names :)

Summary: In which there are costumes!

This can all be blamed on Mark Gatiss’s twitter profile picture and, having read Red Sky at Morning , me having many thoughts about what Sherlock might have worn in such a universe.

This is a present for [livejournal.com profile] impulsereader – author of Red Sky and many other wonderful Sherlock fics. Happy Birthday my dear. I hope you have a lovely day tomorrow.


Story under the cut ... )

I've just read [livejournal.com profile] kizzia's latest post, in which she discusses how the whole sexism debate sparked by [livejournal.com profile] wellingtongoose's recent meta on the subject has made her feel - specifically in relation to the hate that [livejournal.com profile] wellingtongoose has received for daring to venture an opinion on the topic. 

I wish I had written this - GO READ IT HERE - it encapsulates exactly how I feel about the whole thing. 

Bullying is never acceptable.

Just no!

Tags: Johnlock, Post-Reichenbach, Mpreg, Omegaverse (my own version), angst, fluff, established relationship.
Disclaimer: Sherlock belongs to ACD, the BBC, Moffat and Gatiss - no copyright infringement intended.
Summary: John held himself together after Sherlock jumped but the emotional strain was enormous and Sherlock didn't fare much better. When Sherlock finally returned they were both just so glad to reaffirm their bond they didn't really think about the future, or if they did they simply assumed their lives would carry on as they always had. 
Needless to say they soon discover that their prolonged separation has had a very specific effect on John; the results of which mean nothing will ever be the same again. Told entirely in 221B’s this story charts all the little things Sherlock and John experience as their lives change forever.  
The B’s are Blood, Breathe, Bag, Beta, Bucket, Brother, Brilliant, Bet, Best, Bother, Bang, Bleak, Beginning, Baby, Born, Biscuit, Beneath, Bump, Basement, Beetroot, Blimp, Blur, Benedict, Beg, Break, Butterfly, Boy, Brooding, Bemused, Blue, Broken, Bourbon, Before, Breeches, Bedroom, Bewildered, Bassinet, Bee, Bach, Black, Blinked, Blame, Blind, Brain, Better, Blaze, Back, Birth, Been, Blooming, Betty, Bored, Bone, Believable, Burning, Bladder, Bugger, Blank, Beautiful, Bond, Blessed & Blog.

Author's Note: This isn't standard Omegaverse because, as I'm not comfortable writing dub/non-con scenes, I decided to create
my own version. If you want to know more about it, I've done an explanatory post here.
